The film:

  • A lot of Spawn's interactions with Clown.
    Clown: Everytime someone farts a demon gets his wings.
    (Farts twice)
    Clown: Oops, twins!
    • "Spawny, Spawny, he's our man!"
    • "In the name of the people and things of Hell, I dub thee...Spawn, general of Hell's armies. Arise, Your Crispness! Arise, Duke of Deep-Fried! Sultan of Sizzling! Emir of Ooey-Gooey! "

  • Spawn's reaction to his hands forming into claws to help him scale the walls and escape the Swat team.
    Spawn: Holy shit!!!

  • Clown's reaction to being spotted by a couple of Hollywood Satanists:
    "Why does God get all the good followers and we get all the retards?"

The animated series:

  • In response to Clown being an annoying Jerkass:
    Spawn: Look! Back off, before I permanently introduce your face to your colon.
  • One of the bums asks Spawn why he can't see Wanda. Spawn angrily takes off his mask to reveal his immolated face.
    Bum: I've seen lots worse. I used to work for a mortician.
    Spawn: That makes me feel better. Get out of here.

The comic:

  • In the first issue, we get this Black Comedy bit with Sam and Twitch investigating on a crime scene:
    Sam: And he wasn't killed by the fall?
    Twitch: No, sir. It was his heart.
    Sam: Heart failure?
    Twitch: Umm... you might say that, sir. It was removed.
    Sam: Removed?
    Twitch: Yes, sir. It was stuffed in his mouth.
  • Spawn and the other bums in the alley get drunk and sing the Flintstones theme song.
  • In an early issue, one of the bums is Elvis.

  • "Violator" is a terrifying name for a villain, but the origin of his name is ... pretty hilariously mundane, according to Word of God.
    The origin of his name is that on a cold, rainy night up in Canada, my wife and I were coming home from a night out. She asked me if it was okay if we stopped at the liquor store because she wanted to pick up a bottle of wine. I said sure, but since I don't drink, I decided to wait in the car while my wife. So while I was sitting there...I looked out the window and noticed a sign posted on a wall. It read something like... 'No parking anytime. All violators will be towed.' I sat looking at it for a few moments and then said to myself...VIOLATOR!?!? That would make for a COOL and NASTY villain name!!!!!

How well does it match the trope?
