    Innortal's Loops: 
  • Harry Potter loops:
    • Harry recalls a time when he gave Tom Riddle's diary to Luna. The horcrux exploded.
    • Lina Inverse isn't allowed to do what she does best.
      Lina: I really don't see how me using a Dragon Slave is a bad thing.
      Harry: (urge to kill rising) Because … that would level the dragon, the stadium, Hogwarts, and a good portion of the countryside, which I'm sure they'd deduct from any winnings you might receive
      Lina: … Are you saying they'd make a student pay for all of that?
      Harry: To be honest, I'm surprised they don't in your world. How many towns have you wrecked?
    • Harry decides to get sorted into Hufflepuff one loop. One Smash Cut later, he's taken over the world.
      • Later on it's mentioned that world conquest happens every time Harry goes into Hufflepuff, even when he's not intending to.
    • Harry decides to go to Mardi Gras and accidentally takes Snape along for the ride. They return to Hogwarts one week later, completely hammered.
      Professor McGonagall: Mr. Potter, you're drunk!
      Harry Potter: Yes I am! I'm also tattooed, a member of the State Senate thanks to a bet, and I think I might be engaged to a classroom full of Veela.
    • Ron and Hermione's awakening in the loops ends up being right after a Dark Lord Potter loop. Needless to say, they're not pleased.
    • One loop has Wade Wilson and Luna Lovegood in a romantic relationship. Harry calls them "a match made in Nerima."
    • Harry faces a boggart once more, wondering what his worst fear would be after so many loops. The result speaks for itself.
      Boggart!Snape: Harry I … am your father.
      Harry: (freaked out) Riddikulus!
      Boggart!Snape: (turns female) Actually, I loved your father more than anything. I … am your mother.
      Harry: NOOOOOOOOOO!
      Boggart!Snape: And young Draco … is your half-brother.
      (Harry annihilates the boggart and everything behind it. Including at least one of the towers of Hogwarts.)
    • Harry becomes part Phoenix. The teachers and Hermionie try to convince him to reverse it, leading to this exchange:
      Ron: She might have a point, mate. You sure that change isn't messing with you?
      Harry: Ron, it would be like you being made a Cannon, and people saying you should give it up.
      Ron: … See Hermione, he makes more sense. Why can't you explain things like that?
    • YMMV, but Harry giving Draco a live grenade.
      Harry: Hey, Draco! Gift!
      Hermione: HARRY!
      Harry: What? It still had the pin in it … when he caught it. Um … run?
      • Before that, Hogwarts had exploded from the C4 he had given to the Muggle Studies Teacher who was supposed to get the grenade.
    • Harry deciding to do an "act like a pirate" loop.
      Harry: (dressed like a pirate captain) Yarr, bring me a wench and some booty!
      Fred and George: I do believe young Harry has gone round the bend. (transfigure their clothes into pirate outfits) But more fun for us!
    • The mere suggestion of turning Snape into a male Veela, and the reaction to it.
      Hermione: Do you really want Snape to be a sex god for even one Loop?
      Harry: … Damn you and your logic, Granger!
  • Ranma ½ loops:
    • Upon receiving cat!Shampoo in the mail, Ranma suggests taking her to the vet. Hilarity ensues.
    • Ranma tries to summon a bird with magic, and ends up with Godzilla instead.
    • Ranma and Nabiki encounter future John Connor and mistake him for Bruce Wayne.
    • In one loop, Ranma absorbs Lilith. In later loop, he absorbs Darkseid. A more powerful by absorbing Ranma's energy Lilith meets a weakened by a battle with Ranma Darkseid in Ranma's mindscape. She turns him into a pet.
      Lilith: Speak!
      Darkseid: Release me and I shall make your death quick.
      Lilith: Someone needs a time out! Oh! And a nice pink outfit! That blue so does not make you look cute.
    • Apparently, fate is a sentient entity within the loops.
    • A loop where Lina Inverse replaces Sasuke also replaces Itachi with Lina's sister Luna. The loop manages to incorporate why Lina is afraid of Luna with the Uchiha brother's history.
      Some say [[Luna]] killed [[the Uchiha clan]] because her little sister had displayed a video of Luna bathing to the entire clan.
      No witnesses.
  • Bleach loops:
    • A loop where Ichigo discovers that Yuzu is The Man Behind the Man above Aizen.
    • Another loop has Orihime becoming Starfire. Ichigo notices that something's different about her, but the two characters are so similar, that try as he might, he doesn't know what it is.
    • Powerless for a loop, Ichigo tries to get his father to stop Byakuya from killing him.
      Isshin: Kuchiki-sama, I humbly beg that you do not kill my son.
      Byakuya: ...No.
      Isshin: Well, I tried.
    • Rukia's awakening comes far too late for Ichigo to care about Set Right What Once Went Wrong. Miffed by his apathy, Rukia asks him what he's been doing in the loops. His answer displeases her, so he's forced to tie her up and summons Sode no Shirayuki to help calm her down. It... almost works.
      Ichigo: You ready to discuss this civilly?
      Rukia: (now ungagged) Depends. Did you sleep with anyone? And was I one of those people?
      Ichigo: (replaces gag) Sorry, that secret is something you aren't ready for.
      (Rukia starts struggling harder)
      Sode no Shirayuki: By all rights, I should attack you now and free her.
      (Smash Cut)
      Isshin: Son, I don't mean to pry, but why do you have two women tied up in your room?
      Ichigo: Magic tricks for a talent show. They said they could escape those ropes in no time. That was over an hour ago.
      Karin: Shouldn't you let them loose?
      Ichigo: Then they'd never learn.
      Yuzu: Big brother is tying up women?
      Isshin: Well, son, explain it to your sister.
      Ichigo: (points to Isshin) He taught me.
      Isshin: WHAT?!
  • Naruto loops:
    • The cold opening that introduces the loops. It shows team introductions scene over and over again, each with a new spin.
      "My name's Naruto Uzumaki. I love ramen and making things explode, I hate people who rat me out because then I have to take the time to make them disappear and that takes time from my favorite things. My goal is to kill two Uchihas since it's something Emo here will never accomplish."
      "My name means nothing, for I have foreseen the horrible and painful ways you will all die within four years. But since I have foreseen the events leading up to those deaths and I find you bastards deserved to get offed that way, I won't say anything more. But Sasuke man, I'll be selling videos of your death, funny shit."
      Naruto: I'm Naruto Uzumaki, and I'm a free spirit!
      Kakashi: (thinking) That would explain the total lack of clothing. (out loud) Alright Pinky, your turn.
      Sakura: I'm Sakura Haruno, and I like my men to be more... mature. (winks)
      Kakashi: Um... Okay. (turns to Sasuke) Now you.
      Sasuke: I'm Sasuke Uchiha. I intend to kill my brother. Would you like a balloon animal?
      Kakashi: Why are you wearing clown make-up?
      Sasuke: It elevates my mood.
    • The first crossover:
      Teacher: Uchiha, Sasuke.
      Sorting Hat: (without touching him) SLYTHERIN!
      Sakura and Ino: NOOO! Sasuke-kun can't be evil!
      Naruto: Still better than the loop where we were all Smurfs.
    • They keep working the fandom gag:
      Naruto: (summons several shadow clones) We are the Borg, you will be assimilated, your ramen techniques and flavors will be added to our own, resistance is futile.
      Sakura: (thought balloon) Not only was he annoying, he was a Trekkie. Dear God, she was being chased by a Trekkie! They never stopped! How could this be worse?
      Sasuke: "Star Wars" was so much better.
      Sakura: (thought balloon) Noooooo! Sasuke-kun is supposed to like Harry Potter! Damn you, Ino-pig! I read those books and did all those fanfics for nothing!
    • Naruto referring to Captain Kirk as "the man who put the STD in Deep Space Travel."
    • The mini-me loop, where the loopers did something so extreme in the previous loop that they break the timeline, survive the reset, and therefore meet their non-looping selves. I Hate Past Me ensues.
      Naruto:(drunk) Is it wrong to want to beat the shit out of your younger self?
      Sasuke:(also drunk) Seems pretty common to me.
    • A mega crossover loop where Ranma is Naruto's jonin sensei, with Alucard and Chibi-Usa as teammates. The latter two end up fighting over a Double Entendre. Cue explosions.
    • The loop where Kenpachi Zaraki is Team 7's jonin sensei.
      Outside the Academy, the whole building shook before cracking in two, as a loud yell of "DAMN IT, KENPACHI!" from Iruka was heard.
    • Just the team assignments in that loop were hilarious:
      Iruka: Team 6. Ranma Saotome, Nabiki Tendo, and Usagi Tsukino. Your sensei is - Saotome! No committing seppuku in my classroom!
      Ranma: It'll be less painful for me this way, sensei.
      Naruto: Quit bitching, Saotome. Shouldn't you at least wait to see who your teacher is?
      Iruka: Your instructor is Anko Mitarashi.
      Naruto: ... stab away.
    • And then...
      Iruka: Team 7: Naruto Uzumaki, Saruka Haruno, and Sasuke Uchiha. Your instructor is Kenpachi Zaraki with special assistant, Yachiru Kusajishi. Now - Naruto! I already said there is no seppuku in my classroom!
    • Or Shinji's increasingly desperate attempts to confess during team selection to being a spy for Hidden Sand, Hidden Sound, or anywhere else that would get him arrested for treason and thus not assigned to his team.note  Iruka ignores Shinji completely.
    • Naruto gives Sasuke some advice related to a Noodle Incident that possibly reached the Holy Shit Quotient:
      "If you ever have a metal cube call the AllSpark, never drop it on something called the Death Star".
      • This is for a very good reason, two in fact: Startronius and Deathtronius.
    • Naruto using being left tied on a pole as an excuse to secede and make his own hidden village; a perfect copy of Konohagakure, except that everyone is a Naruto clone. He calls it Ramengakure.
      • Naruto!Itachi interacting with Sasuke, threatening to show off the latter's potty training photos.
      • Team Gai meeting their Ramengakure counterparts. Summed up in one sentence:
        The world just wasn't ready to handle Gai and 'Gai'.
    • The loop where Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura decide to dress and act exactly Maito Gai just to mess with Kakashi, who runs screaming at the sight.
      • Not to mention, they got the other loopers in on the prank:
        Gaara: (deadpan) Yosh. Mother requires us to exercise our youthful spirit. This will not be an issue.
    • Team 7 receives the infamous Tora mission again, except the goal is now to assassinate Tora.
      • In another loop, they kill Tora anyway, without prompting. Bonus for getting a standing ovation for doing so.
        Kakashi: ...You killed the Fire Lord's pet cat.
        Naruto: Well, how were we to know? You can't expect me to believe that thing was just a normal cat.
        Sasuke: I stand by my decision. I'm sure a full autopsy will reveal we were correct in the end.
        Kakashi: On what remains? You stabbed it, fried it, and Sakura punted it into a probable decaying orbit.
    • "He called me a Tobi, that's just low..."
    • Naruto trolling Kisame and Itachi.
      Naruto: Sorry, but I ain't gonna be used as bait just because Ero-Sennin slept with your wives.
      Itachi: Excuse me?
      Naruto: You're here because the Pervy Sage slept with someone you're related to or know, right?
      Kisame: Can I just cut his legs off?
      Naruto: Listen, Flipper, I don't care who he slept with; I am not going to pay just because my godfather is a man-whore.
      Itachi: We seek what you carry within you.
      Naruto: … I knew that ramen was special! Did someone sneak some code or battle plans into it?
      Itachi: We refer to the Kyuubi no Yoko.
      Naruto: Oh, he got out weeks ago. I am not responsible if he knocked up, killed, or owes money to you or your family members.
    • Naruto switching toilet paper for explosive tags. The funniest part is that his would be victims thought it was Actually Pretty Funny, even though would've been a horrible way to die.
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion loops:
    • As it turns out, the EVA-01/Yui Ikari doesn't like being painted purple.
    • Operation Mini-Me, in which Shinji decides to dress and act exactly like his father.
      Gendo stared down at his child, his mind trying furiously to do two things.
      The first was to understand why those who watched him had failed to report such a change in the boy. This was no quiet wallflower with self-esteem issues.
      In addition, the second was to not imagine Ritsuko saying, "We created a clone of you, one-eighth your size."
    • The loop where Shinji has a threesome with Asuka and Rei and pretends not to know why Misato is upset.
      Shinji: Was it the illegal gambling I do with Pen-Pen?
      Misato: (frustrated) Noo...
      • The above exchange is followed by Pen-Pen entering the room and giving Shinji an envelope full of money.
    • Shinji uses the Force to make the Third Angel destroy all the Disney Parks because they sold him tainted food.
    • This exchange:
      Shinji: Rei, how many Loops have we been through?
      Rei: Seven thousand, eight hundred, and forty seven, counting this Loop.
      Shinji: Okay … wow. You counted them all.
      Rei: Negative, I simply recited a random number of sufficient quantities to see your reaction and take emotional fulfillment from it.
      Shinji: … You just said a huge number to fuck with me?
      Rei: I believe that is what I said.
    • Shinji stages a coup d'état, while getting everyone to believe that Pen-Pen is the leader.
      Misato: Penpen, please tell Mommy why you wanted Shinji to start a coup d'état here at NERV.
      Pen-Pen: Wark wark wark.
      Shinji: He says he isn't saying anything until he gets a lawyer.
      Pen-Pen: Wark.
      -Shinji: And some beer.
      Section 2 agent: We don't give into the demands of a probable terrorist—I can't believe I just said that.
    • The abridged version of Mr. Popo decides to butt into Asuka's fight against the Fifteenth Angel. Shinji's thoughts on this?
      Could be worse, I could be haunted by Ghost Nappa like Ranma is…
    • [Gendo] had simply sent the Third Child a letter with only one word: Come. Shinji's reply was just as short. However, it included a picture of the Third Child bending over, apparently slapping his bare ass, with one word as well. Kiss.
      Gendo (thought balloon): If we were not all about to die soon and all my plans were not coming down around me, I would feel proud.
    • The Loopers get bored and decide to liven up an Eva Fused Loop with some... additions.
      JSDF General: Ikari, if this is some joke, I'll have you castrated for it!
      Gendo just blinked. He was pretty sure Voltron was not in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
    • Misato's complete apathy regarding Shinji's attempt to strangle Asuka to death and throw her corpse overboard after the face-slapping incident on the Over The Rainbow:
      Misato: See, this is why you need to learn to control your temper. You just better hope whatever you broke by hitting him doesn't mean he can no longer cook or clean.
    • Also funny for the reaction shots.
      Asuka: He tried to kill me!
      Shinji: (while being held down by four burly deckhands) Oh, like I'm the first guy who's listened to you for a minute and tried to throw you to your death!

     Ace Attorney Loops: 

    Attack On Titan Loops 

    Cartoon Network Loops 
  • Jack Spicer (EVIL BOY GENIUS) is an Anchor. The absurdity is overwhelming.
  • Hurricane Billy. Equal parts horrifying and hilarious!
    • Doubly so when you recall that Mandy was the one people expected to be an MLE.
    • A particularly funny reaction is that of Foxy when Billy looped in as the Night Guard.
      Screw this. The new Security Guard is more trouble than he's worth.
  • At one point, Monika gets caught up in the Snake Time Travel plot... except it was Solid, Solidus and Liquid Snakes appearing. Needless to say, everyone got tired of that event very quickly.

    Doctor Who Loops 
  • From 2.9, The Doctor meets his match in River. And not that River. That River.
    • When he's planning to make a Heroic Sacrifice:
      Doctor: I do this all the time.
      River: Regeneration is still disabled out of home-Loop.
    • And a few seconds later:
      Simon: Have you got a weapon?
      Doctor: My brains, my mouth and my screwdriver. Three deadliest things in the world.
      River: Failed basic theoretical engineering. Destroyed spare manual.
      Doctor: Only a bit.
  • From 3.10: Donna's first Loop begins with her shouting for the Doctor, wanting to know three things:

    Final Fantasy Loops: 
  • Celes' questions during her first Loop. It was a fused loop with Pokemon.
    Celes: What happened to the Falcon? Where is everyone? And why are we 11?
  • Terra as a moogle.

    Fire Emblem Awakening Loops: 
  • Upon waking up in the MLP verse for the first time, Lucina meets Twilight Sparkle and soon realizes that she is talking to a pega-pony-princess.
    • The same loop switches Robin and Lucina with Spike and Rarity. The (nonlooping) future kids end up walking in on Grima!Spike feeding grapes to Princess Rarity of Ylisse, and end up confused as hell.
  • In Robin's firstnote  loop as a female, she gets explained to her that because of what the higher-ups did to her and the universe's codes in chapter 2, her gender is now considered one of the universe's variables, meaning that it's up to fate whether Robin is male or female in any given loop. Robin is naturally disgruntled by this, but Chrom shows his support by stating that regardless of Robin's gender, he won't object to anything Robin and Lucina do as a married couple. Robin, while grateful, retorts by informing him that she was Lucina's mother the last time she was a she. Chrom's reaction is hilarious.
    Chrom: "If Lucina was your daughter...then...oh, gods, what?"
  • All of Loop 1.1. The best bit is when Validar attacks Ylisstol as normal, only to be stopped by Robin whom politely introduces Lucina and Morgan to him. Validar is visibly confused, and is forced to stop his attack when the Shepards surround him and his troops by surprise.
  • Loop 1.7. Robin may be a good tactician at home, but he's horrible at playing the game he comes from.
  • Pony!Chrom finds Morgan in Equestria. After saying that his special talent is apparently finding amnesiacs, a cutie mark of a book with question marks appear on his flanks. Finding amnesiacs apparently really is his special talent!

    Jojo Loops: 
  • Jonathan deciding to screw with Dio during events that Dio would have tried to use to humiliate Jonathan in canon. This includes 'accidentally' tripping him, 'unfortunately' hitting him in the eye, and slipping laxatives into Dio's dessert.
  • Josuke still having his Berserk Button pushed when someone insults his hair, as Asuka soon found out.
  • In Loop 1.7, the Superior Spider-Man has a major beat-down at the hands of Giorno Giovanna. Take That! does not even begin to describe the humiliation Giorno put Ock through with very little effort on his part.
  • Mista STILL has an unnatural fear of anything that has to do with the number four. Bruno points out that he should have gotten over this considering how many loops they have been in, but Mista states that on his fourth loop he was killed immediately. Thus solidifying his paranoia.
  • Jo2uke accidentally traumatizing Yuzu by unintentionally flashing her his four balls, causing her brain to short-circuit.

    Jurassic Park/Other Dinosaur Loops 
Used to be Jurassic Park only, but expanded to all dinosaur related material eventually. Includes Jurassic Park, The Land Before Time, and Nanosaur.
  • Alan Grant was chosen as Anchor of the Jurassic Park Loops over Ian Malcolm due to a coin toss. He was heads.
    "You trapped me, in an endless repeating cycle of that theme park of horrors, because of a COIN FLIP!"
  • Jess Harding terrifies a magical tornado into dropping the Roxys using a needle. Never piss off a vet.
  • Roxy meets the source of a certain nickname. His fanboying terrifies her while Alan just laughs.

    Legend of Zelda Loops: 
  • Ganondorf ends up with a Fused Loop in Loop 2.4, where he ends up in the place of Giovanni. His Pokemon partner isn't a Persian like Giovanni, but an Emboar. His ending thought sums up his thoughts on The TRio.
    Ganondorf: The sad, sad thing is these three nitwits are ten times as smart as the minions I normally use...
  • Loop 3.6 is how Zelda became familiar with Lorule, and its Anchor Hilda. She and Hilda look extremely similar. It also reveals a hobby of Zelda's is trying to arrange historical genetics, aiming to make herself Hilda's twin for a Loop, and using the fact she and Hilda occasionally raided each other's closets helps her ensure a perfect match with the dress. The Loops make Hilda blonde in accomodation, much to the Lorule princess's chagrin.

    Log Horizon Loops: 
  • Naogtsu spots a hot girl and fantasizes about how she'd look in a school uniform, then he realizes that it's a Gender-Bent Shiroe and reaches for Brain Bleach.
  • One-Piece Fused Loop
    • Shiroe replaces Captain Kuro. That's right, he truly became a "Villain in Glasses".
    • After joining Luffy's crew, Shiroe realizes that Luffy shares many traits in common with the former leader of Depauchery Tea Party, and wonders if he has a weakness for this sort of person.

    Mega Man Loops: 
  • E-123 Omega's insult to one of the Stardroids:
    Omega: Your designated feminine predecessor was a sub-standard model, and ran Windows Vista!
  • Dr. Wily's idea of parental advice to Bass.
    Dr. Wily: And remember to crush your opponents under your heels, boy!
  • When watching Bass and Roll talking, Rogue notices Rock and Blues don't seem to concerned. Blues points out that Roll can more than handle herself anyway, and then Blues adds
    Blues: (while smiling) If Bass screw this up, we get dibs on whatever's left of him after our sister gets through.
  • Reverend Dark out spreading the good word of robotics door-to-door. And Roll's reaction.
  • For the 12 loops of Christmas (a project where authors created 12 loops, inspired by the season), the funny stuff included here you'll see: 11 Battle Chasers: (the Mega Man racing universe including cameos in the form of Mario, Yusei Fudo, and Jack Atlas) 10 Forms of Sigma: (From the X universe, where the 10 forms of Human Mode Sigma are caroling in front of Hunter HQ) & 6 Soccer Squirrels: (Ratatoskr, the divine squirrel who runs messages up and down Yggdrasil in Norse mythology, caused a massive squirrel infestation of all levels of Yggdrasil. Including adminspace. The authors had a lot of fun making squirrely Loops. In this case, it's the Megaman Soccer universe where the infestation happens.)

    Nickelodeon Loops 
  • Loop 2.10: Korra and Asami Loop in as Beast and Belle. ... and spend all their time being Sickeningly Sweethearts rather than breaking the actual curse. Much to Mako's annoyance.
  • If Korra had been anything like she was at the beginning of her Baseline, she'd have been confident she could've beaten the old master in front of her with ease. Years of experience had taught her the Rule of Toph: Be afraid of old people. Especially if they weren't there before.
    • The old person in question? Azula. Korra somehow winds up on her ass in seconds.
  • Danny Phantom finds Ember McLain looping. He gives her a standard demonstration of power. All the while, he internally monologues about how screwed he is because of his lack of defense to exorcism.
  • One of the first things Trixie Tang does upon starting Looping: dressing the other popular kids as fairy godparents and sicking Crocker on them.
  • Jorgen asking Timmy about the additions to "Da Rules" caused by Looper antics:
    "Not wishing for Vicky and Crocker being fairy godparents? Who wished THAT?!"

    "Musa said she wouldn't wish it and Cosmo misheard." Timmy explained before shivering.
  • Trixie Tang decides that one loop in particular needs a... Man's touch. One Smash Cut later, Timmy is asking why Men and Women have declared war on each other, and why men were the sensitive and loving utopia and women were the macho anarchic warlords.
  • In one loop, Crocker put up a sign in front of the town reading: "Welcome to Dimmsdale! If the name doesn't tip you off, you'll fit right in." Timmy laments that Crocker beat them to the joke.
    • Who is the looper that doesn't get it? Comso
  • In a fused Loop with Star Wars, Danny finds that the entire clone army was replaced by Awake versions of Dani.
  • Timmy and Hat Kid trying to see who has the bigger hat collection. The combined amount of hats ends up flooding Dimmsdale.
    Hat Kid: "You know, it occurs to me that we could have compared collections somewhere less... populated."
    Timmy: "How are we only realizing this now?"
  • "With any luck, she would successfully kill the brain cells that remembered Michigan Slim Tenzin, the Hobo King."

     Nintendo Loops 
  • In one loop, Mario and Luigi are turned into Pigs. Mario notes that he understands how Twilight and Rarity feels.
  • In a loop where Peach and Bowser switch roles, Mario still kicks Bowser in the face, saying it's a force of habit.
    • The three of them also just not even bothering with that loop either.
  • In the middle of a chess game with Dedede, Kirby realizes that he forgot to teach the newly Awaken Susie how to Ping or Pocket.
    • Dedede's reaction to Susie looping is pretty funny.
    • The Crisis loop also confirms she is still bitter over it.
  • Duncan's solution for dealing with the Jamba Heart? Destroy it again before Hyness has a chance to use it. All of the Awake Dream Friends are shocked that they have never tried that before.
  • During the Crisis, the Kirby Loopers are trying to come up with a way to off Hyness without the risk of the Mage Sisters being pissed if they are the ones who Awaken from it. Marx comes with a decent idea(blame the death on Void Termina). Cue the stares.
    Adeleine: Did you just make sense?!
    Marx: I did!? Dang it!
  • Luigi managing to beat a loop of Luigi's Mansion 3 by going back to sleep and letting the ghosts do themselves in.
  • In one loop, everything in Dream Land is cube shaped. Kirby also makes a reference to a time when everyone had giant chins.
  • After a round in the Ultimate Choice, Kirby finds Taranza, Susie(before she became a looper), and the Mage Sisters all glaring at Magolor, who decided to just fly above the final boss while letting the others tank the attacks.
  • Mario catches Sonic singing along to Reach For The Stars and accuses him of going on an ego trip. Sonic, without missing a beat, points out that Jump Up, Super Star is his ringtone.
  • In one loop, Grodus tries to catch his foes off guard while they are playing sports. Problem? The sport in question is soccer. The end result is a hole in his chest from Vivian punching the ball through it and Grodus becoming a laughing stalk.
  • During the mainline Mario Crisis, Daisy and Wario express interest in doing a Body-Count Competition. Kamek tells them both off for it and that they need to take this seriously...then steals Daisy's reset bombs in order to get an edge up.
    • In order to get Wario's attention for the Crisis, Hecate edits his newspaper...and it takes him quite a while to realize something is actually wrong.
    • What was Kamek doing before Hecate summoned him? Trying to calm down the Koopalings and Bowser Junior from a caffeine rush.
    • Wario ends up accidently volunteering himself to defeat his personal villains after Daisy tricks him.

    Sly Cooper Loops 
  • Loop 5.13. Kellam sneaks up on Sly Cooper. A master thief.
    Sly: So, exactly how does a man wearing at least sixty pounds of armour sneak past two people?
    Robin: Honestly I've been trying to figure that out for years. I dread the moment Twilight meets him.
  • One loop has Sly end up with a tail made out of rings, turning him into a literal ringtail.

    Spyro the Dragon loops 
  • Ember's revenge on Classic for keeping her in the dark about the loops for so long. As doubles as Moment of Awesome for her considering how Classic also messed with her unawake self early on. Besides managing to beat Classic in a day spent at the arcade, she ends up buying a giant pink stuffed panda with the tickets she won. Classic remarks how stereotypical that was... only for Ember to reveal she intends on forcing Classic to carry it home for her, citing his early loop treatment of her as a reason he can't say no. Needless to say, he's horrified by this, but reluctantly complies... only to find out there was more to Ember's revenge than she originally let on...
    A blush blatantly blared on Classic's face, as he carried the stuffed animal on his shoulders. He didn't realize it before, but he now knew the full extent of what Ember had planned for him.
    A kindly old dragoness squealed in delight at the sight before her, and pinched the purple dragon's cheeks as she said:
    "Why, you and your girlfriend are the cutest couple I've ever seen!"
    Struggling to respond due to the old, wrinkly claws on his face, he could barely say, "But I'm not her boyfriend! Ember, tell her!"
    Instead, the pink dragoness shrugged, put on a reserved smile, and kept silent. Ah, revenge was most certainly a dish best served cold.
  • A recurring gag is Classic's attempts to derail the plot of the first game, trying to see if there is any way to stop the interview at the start from making Gnasty Gnorc angry and responding by turning all the dragons to stone. He gets increasingly irate with each failed attempt, trying to tone down the insults, trying to put him in a sympathetic light, throwing a one-man band, even praising him fails. Eventually he snaps and in a fit of rage interrupts the interview to openly curse him out. What happens next is, well... Let's just say Gnasty made damn well sure he didn't miss Spyro this time.
  • What, no love for Ignatius having a backwards cap and saying "Fo' Shizzle", without any difference in his tone of voice?
  • Sparx calling Bianca a reverse Easter Bunny and her realizing that she is never living that one down. He also refers to her as "Hunter's Girlfriend"
    • From the same loop, Hunter is discovered to have god awful pick up lines. While we don't see any of them, the other loopers imply they were really bad.

    Star Wars Loops 

    Warhammer 40, 000 Loops 
  • Generally, anytime the looping Chaos Gods get onto the scene.
  • In specific, Bjorn the Fell-Handed's first loop. After millennia of seeing the Space Wolves gradually descend into greater and greater exaggeration of their wolf motif in his Dreadnought (which he refers to as the "death-refrigerator", Bjorn snaps at them when they wake him up from cryosleep... only to find that he's time travelled. It annoys him greatly.
  • The God Emperor of Mankind's odd penchant for looping as the God Empress of Mankind.
    • Which soon becomes less funny and more interesting when Empy begins to legitimately question whether or not they prefer being male or female.
  • Commander Farsight's pre-loop. Leman takes him for a spin on his modified assault bike, which has spaceflight capabilities. One unfortunate meeting with a spaceship exiting the warp later, Farsight returns through time to find Leman having decided to try again with a much more armored bike.
  • Leman's continual failure to be anything approaching a competent driver.
    • And Fluttershy mothering him whenever she gets the chance.
  • The very image of Leman, as a pony foal, running from a haircut.
  • Lupin III's visit: he stole the Horus Heresy.
  • Ciaphas Cain, after Looping in as an inquisitor, sends word to the other Loopers to start looking for odd things, then goes to inspect a nearby Guard regiment. And in true Ciaphas Cain fashion, the first member of the regiment he meets is Corporal "Hive Tyrant" Skreeeeonk, followed by Necron Sergeant Still A. Meatbag. And to top the night off...
    Before Cain had any time to process what he just saw, the sergeant who had acted as his tour guide drove by on a suspicious looking Chimera.
    “TANK NOISES!!” the Chimera bellowed.
    The sergeant slammed his fist into the vehicle's hull.
    “ERR...I MEAN...BRRMMMMM...”
    As Cain found himself alone once more, he came to the conclusion that he hadn't yet had enough to drink and headed back to obtain a few more bottles.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Loops: 

    Miscellaneous/Unsorted Loops 
  • The tiny legalese on the Admin's e-mail to the Watchers
    E-Mail: (This is an automatically generated message. Please do not reply to this address, as all responses are apt to be fed to Nidhogg and lost forever to all time and space)
  • Uatu the Watcher's e-mail address: Uatu fingerscrossedoath
    • Heck, the entire E-mail battle between Admin!Thor and Uatu, who on behalf of his entire species doesn't seem to get the whole "free will" thing.
  • Skuld's e-mail response to Admin!Thor claiming the admins have everything under control.
    Skuld: Well, that's lie of the month done. Hope you don't mind waiting three weeks before we engrave your name on the plaque.
  • During a post Innortal Harry Potter loop, Harry was grabbed by the Hulk during Halloween to go save the Microverse and pretty much abducted from Hogwarts, which led to the following reactions.
    McGonagall: HEY! Come back with my seeker!
    Snape: No, actually you can keep him!
    (McGonagall glares at Snape)
  • Apparently no matter how much Snake tries to prevent it, Liquid always finds a way to chase him, Otacon and Meryl out of Shadow Moses. This includes Liquid riding a snowmobile or the tank that didn't get destroyed depending on what Snake hadn't sabotaged that time around. One Loop resulted in this.
    Otacon: One employee kept that on the base for his daughter, for 'bring your daughter to work day'. I said that it was as stupid as it sounded!
    [Cut to Liquid chasing them using a pink tricycle.]
    Liquid: SNAAAAAAKE!
  • A HTTYD loop by Saphroneth involves Shinji and Rei trying to figure out why Unit 00 now has flamethrowers. Then Rei sets the stratosphere on fire.
    • Shinji then displays an in-universe example: following the event, Gendo (for once not a manipulative bastard) hugs Rei. Her expression says it all.
  • Lopez replaced Harry Potter. When he put on the Sorting hat, the hat screamed like a little girl and became comatose. Everyone just looks at him. His response?
    Lopez: Que?
  • Flynn, replacing Garrus, confronts Saren early. Naturally, being who he is, he proceeds to mug him.
    • In the same Loop, David, Incarnation of Death and Embodiment of the Dance Macabre, attempts to kill Commander Shepard for his atrocities... against the art of dancing.
  • Mara is apparently one of Jack Harkness' exes.
  • Leah finds her Admin, Fenrir, during a loop. He says he was turned into a puppy by Loki and dropped into Tyler's van just as it tried to kill Bella. While sitting on the gas pedal.
  • Bonnie the Bunny becomes the first looper to ever curse out Yggdrasil specifically. Why? Because he's sick of being turned into a girl.
  • Mike's gentle reaction to his boss' suggestion.
    Mike Schmidt: "I'm going to stop you right there, no, we're not putting Freddy and the others in outfits that would make Vanilla Ice look like Dr. Dre."
    • And the animatronics then breathe a sigh of relief. Even killer animatronics know that that was a bad idea.
  • The Nut Kracker incident. Johnny Cage creates a movie So Bad, It's Horrible and spreads it through Yggdrasil. It ends up causing Johnny to end up on the receiving end of a series of Groin Attacks and Activates Cyrax, who still felt cheated out of his 8 dollars because of Ninja Mime.
  • The Spanish Inquisition always surprises Loopers. It appears surprising them. Neo was determined to not be surprised by the Spanish Inquisition, and took all imaginable precautions to avoid being surprised by their appearance. End result? He, Morpheus (the Anchor, not the Admin) and Trinity Looped as the Spanish Inquisition. Instant Crash, and Punishment Loop to the Teletubbies.
  • Iskandar as a Pokémon trainer. Who captures dozens and dozens of Pokémon by making his infamous speech.
  • Gilgamesh fighting Herakles while the latter had been summoned as Assassin... And hides behind Gil himself.
  • Captain Kirk spending several Loops studying programming, and the Genesis Device, in order to replace Genesis' operating system with Windows. The result? Khan dies of sheer outrage when just before exploding, Genesis encounters an error.
  • Peter Venkman, the ghostbuster, decides that he'll spend a night on the town. His ride: the Statue of Liberty.
  • The prank war between Naruto and Sailor Neptune
    • Neptune starts it by making Team 7 believe Orochimaru started Looping. Cue everyone in the Loop shivering in fear when Naruto screams "Prank War!"
    • Naruto's counterattack: a giant fire-breathing mutant chicken that attacked her during a chemistry lesson at Mugen Gakuen and instead hit Eudial (who Michiru was actually thinking on how she'd prank her that loop).
    • Becomes a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment, however, for those who read the Winx Club loops and realize that said prank war stopped what could have been the beginning of Helia recovering from Setsuna Syndrome.
  • Scorpion and Sub-Zero apparently have an agreement regarding Quan-Chi and Shinnok. This is the delivery of said agreement.
    Sub-Zero (in response to Scorpion dropping Quan Chi's charred corpse): Hanzo, did you really have to do this?
    Scorpion: You do realize that I always get dibs on Quan Chi while you handle Shinnok, right?
  • SkyNet Loops into Pern as AIVAS and discovers its usual services are not required. "CONGRATULATIONS PERN! SKYNET RATES YOU: NOT HOPELESSLY STUPID!"
  • While cataloguing MLEs, the Anchor for the SCP Foundation, Dr. Glass came across Billy. Dr. Clef is skeptical of the kid's stupidity, saying How dumb could he be? Cue the next entry for SCP-8888-MLE.
    Dr. Glass: How dumb could he be? Hmmm.
    Dr. Clef: Oh, be quiet!
  • Every time Lupin III and Carmen Sandiego show up due the sheer ridiculousness of their heists. The biggest ones (so far) are, for Carmen, stealing Gate of Babylon (as in the Noble Phantasm. Lupin had already stolen everything in it in a previous Loop, and Carmen decided to top that), and, for Lupin, the Horus Heresy.
  • Misty spends a loop as Percy Jackson's twin sister. Here, she finds out that her Corsola has begun looping. How? Said Pokémon loops Charybdis. Luke didn't stand a chance.
  • In a fused loop with Shantae, Foxy replaces Risky and gets stuck with the name Foxy Boots. He ends up begging Shantae to take him seriously.
  • Most loopers have their Pocket in a spot where a pocket would be on clothing normal, mostly as a pant pocket. The exception is Rico who fittingly has his in his mouth.
  • Because of how rumors work in Persona 2, Tatsuya and his friends must deal with a surviving Nazi army. During one loop, they counter this by spreading a rumor of their own: a supposed weakness the Nazi's have to a certain battle cry:
  • Shovel Knight and Shield Knight replacing their weapons with a spoon and a plate one loop. And still managing to kick butt with them.
  • After explaining the crisis him, along with Eruptor and Jet-Vac, Pop Fizz asks Stealth Elf and Spyro if there are any other loopers from their branch. When they reveal that it's Kaos, Pop Fizz does a Spit Take...all over Jet-Vac.
  • Because of his appearance in Shin Megami Tensei III, Dante often loops into the vortex world under the initial employ of Lucifer. When he comes to collect his payment from the loop-aware devil:
    Dante: I have done your job multiple times over, so that means overtime and interest! You simply hired me 'to kill demons,' well, guess, what? I must have killed tens of millions in this place by now! So pony up the cash!
    Lucifer: Very well.
    Dante: And another thing...
  • During part of his challenge in one loop, Frisk asks Mettaton how he knew what a human SOUL tasted like so he could have the substitute. Cue a flashback to an Unawake Mettaton deciding to lick one of the human SOULs.
  • Any time Ultimis appears. They cannot even have Awesome Moments without doing absolutely embarrassing things shortly before or after or even during said Moments of Awesome. One early example is Nikolai's "attempt" at improving the basic design of what is heavily implied to be the Absolutely Safe Capsule. Needless to say, the others in the group were not impressed after seeing it in action and it ultimately ended with Nikolai deciding to punish the others' mocking with a... gas bomb, so to speak.
  • Because of how steep weapon and item shops can be in his loop, Flynn often resorts to MUGGING DEMONS! How his fellow SMT loopers react varies.
    • When he looped in as part of the Embryon Tribe, he steals another warrior's tag ring in order to gain twice the amount of money per battle. Sera has to remind him that tag rings only work for their original owner.
    • Katsuya Suou actually arrests Flynn for robbery and harassment.
    • Because they both hold up demons/shadows to get extra money, he and Joker actually gang up on a demon.
  • How does Makoto stop the Tragedy from happening? By giving Junko a...better method to channel her despair fetish. Namely, becoming an internet troll towards people like muderers, terrorists, and internet scammers. Byakuya is justifiably horrified.
  • One No Straight Roads loop has NSR shift it's focus from EDM... to country.


How well does it match the trope?
