Funny / Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!

Go To

  • At the beginning of the game, Spyro and Sparx run towards the Dragon Shores portal. Nearby are a herd of sheep - who promptly run away as fast as they can at the sight of the approaching Dragon. Guess the sheep have finally gotten sick of being fried alive!
    • When Spyro is brought to Avalar, the meeting between him and his new friends is cut short by Ripto. Zoe the fairy zaps him, and he orders Crush to kill her. Instead, he's tricked into hitting Ripto, causing him to lose his scepter which falls into Gulp's mouth.
  • I'm a faun you dork!
  • Elora ordering Hunter to sit on Moneybags to make him give up the money he scammed out of Spyro throughout the game. Also a Moment of Awesome for Hunter.

  • When Ripto steals the gem for his scepter, Elora asks Hunter to do something... Hunter merely commands Ripto to give the scepter back without any assertion. "At least I tried."
  • Ripto's throne falling out of the castle, with him in it, after defeating Gulp.
  • One of the satyrs in Fracture Hills: "Music can soothe the savage beast... and bagpipe music can break solid rock."
    • Whenever you knock an Earthshaper into lava in Fracture Hills, as they sink into the lava, they sadly wave Spyro goodbye before exploding.
  • Boo.
  • "How I've missed my Romeo! If he wasn't so short, we'd get married!"
  • In Crystal Glacier, Spyro must help the Icebuilders rescue their leader, Chief Shaman Tuk, from the ice wizards' prison. The reason? "He has our tickets to tonight's hockey game at Colossus Valley!" Which turns into a Brick Joke upon rescuing him:
    Chief Shaman Tuck: Here, take this crystal. I traded some hockey tickets for it.
  • There's a strange audio glitch that can occur in cut-scenes if you're emulating the game, where random sounds and/or parts of the actual cutscene are repeated over and over and over, turning normally dramatic moments and crucial plot points into pure audio insanity, with the cutscenes making beeps and repeating phrases and lines over and over again. You can see an example of it Here.

  • The Yeti from Colossus is built up as something you have to fight, supposedly being the first boss in the game. Instead, he causes an idol to fall on top of himself.
    Brother Ned: I thought the yeti was tougher than that. I guess he was all bark. *randomly barks*
  • Even though it's That One Sidequest, there's just something inherently funny about the Alchemist in Fracture Hills walking into Earthshapers like a drunken old man. Even better when you use the Superflame power-up on them after beating the game 100% and watch him just dilly-dallying around until he makes it to Hunter.
    • On that note, how did Hunter get the Cement Shoes we see him in? Apparently, the Alchemist had something to do with it. And the reason he gives you the Orb for head-bashing the Earthshapers is because he's annoyed at the prior Noodle Incident.
    Hunter: "Just stand still," he says! "I'll turn your boots to gold," he says!
  • The intro and outro cutscenes for each level can provide a good laugh most of the time, even when it's Black Comedy, Highlights include:
    • The intro to Colossus has two monks going into a temple to feed a yeti a goat, followed by the screen zooming in on the leftward monk as eating sounds can be heard, and when the camera zooms out it's revealed the Yeti ate the other Monk instead, leaving the goat alone to look at the camera in a confused expression.

    • The Electrolls messing with a Gear Grinder in Hurricos' outro.
    • The outro to Aquaria Towers has a Seahorse being scared off (and farting bubbles out of fear) by robotic shark jaws,note  which is revealed to be another Seahorse playing a prank. Cue a second pair of Robo-Shark Jaws, this time chomping a few times and being from the real thing, which chases the prankster Seahorse off screen.
    • The Intro of Skelos Badlands has a flame-headed enemy singe a caveman's behind followed by the Caveman dangling over a pit for a few seconds before it's then revealed the bat enemy was holding him, he precedes to fall shortly shortly afterwards.
    • The Intro for Crystal Glacier has 2 Ice Builders trying to save their leader by entering through the top of his prison. However, upon one launching the other to the top an Ice Mage, waiting up there, freezes the flying Caveman in a large ice cube, cue the frozen Ice Builder crushing the other flat. The outro has three Ice Builders climbing a castle, posting a flag on the top. one Ice Builder then falls off, safely hitting the snow, amused, another knocks one down as well, diving off himself shortly afterwards. Their leader just nods disappointingly.
    • The Slapstick in Breeze Harbour and Zephyr - who knew war was so funny?
    • The intro for Metropolis has a robotic man waiting for the bus, only to discover a pig with a rocket on its back. How does he react to this? He (and the pig) keep waiting for the bus. The kicker? Said rocket pig is one of the enemies that are wreaking havoc among Metropolis. That's right, not only is he completely unphased by a pig wearing a fireworks rocket on its back, but one that is potentially causing trouble in the city. The outro turns this into a Brick Joke. The robot finally leaves realizing his bus won't arrive only to get hit by said bus shortly afterwards.
  • Before the battle against Ripto begins, Zoe shows up to inform Spyro that Hunter is here to help. While this is going on, Ripto is just standing idly in the background looking impatient. As if saying, "Come on, already!"
  • A meta example. Gregg Berger was able to do a hilarious version of "Trouble with the trolley, eh?"
    • "Trouble with the trolley, eh? That's strange. You're the first one! No one has ever had trouble with the trolley before. In fact, controlling the trolley is so easy that a man from Skelos Badlands can do it. I would get those gears myself, but I don't want to at the moment."
    • Even funnier is that a fan got Josh Martin (Majin Buu) to say it in this clip.

How well does it match the trope?
