As dark as the series could get, there also a couple of laughs along the way. They go here:

    open/close all folders 

     Chishio No Me 
  • The Running Gag of mugs getting broken (usually by Rose, throwing them at Raiden).
    • It gets to the point, where in Chapter 52, Ken, Yun, Cody and Cassandra, have to steal new mugs from the dinning quarters.…which they all accidentally smash, before having to flee empty handed.
  • How Dan gets invited to the tournament. One of the invitations of the girl foursome falls on the ground, where it's eventually discovered by Dan, who naturally believes is for him, despite Chapter 9 revealing it was clearly listed for Sakura.
    Sakura: So that's where it went.
  • During their boat ride, in Chapter 9, Sakura & co. accidentally bump into a man. After apologizing, the stranger walks away, before revealing himself to be Ryu. Sakura, immediately tries to chase after him.
    Sakura: Wait…did he say Ryu?
    Mika: Um, yeah. Why?
    Sakura: *starts running off* Come back Ryu!
  • After selecting his Chosen Ones, Raiden summons them all to him, in order to brief them of the situation with Outworld. Among the ones chosen, is Ibuki, who was currently in her underwear. She's naturally horrified at her situation, causing the men to immediately avert their gazes, under the threat of Asuka beating them all up.
  • Chapter 11 finally marks the beginning of Raiden and Rose Belligerent Sexual Tension. To add to that, while Kilik, Xianghua, and Maxi finally join the heroes...this happens.
    Rose: And what's with that stupid hat anyways?
    Raiden: It's called a rice harvester for your information! And why do you have a camel's toe?
    Rose: *enraged* YOU MAKE ME SO ANGRY! What was I thinking when I teamed up with YOU?
    * Raiden throws a lightning bolt at the newcomers...*
    Maxi: RUN!
  • In the midst of their argument, Yun tries to talk with the two of them, only to be met by a fierce Get Out!, from the both of them. What makes it funnier, is the reason he tried to talk to them.
    Yun: I was only trying to ask Raiden and Rose if they had change for a dollar!
    Yin: What do you need change for?
    Yun: Well, I figured that they had vending machines in the palace-
    Raiden: *from the back of the cave* THERE ARE NO VENDING MACHINES IN OUTWORLD!
  • Before his match, Sonya decides to check up on Wagner in his room. They are both in their underwear at the moment, though just as Sonya is about to leave, Wagner trips at grabs hold of Sonya's pajama pants, accidentally ripping them apart. Sonya, understandably angry at the sudden turn, retaliates by stealing Wagner's jeans and wearing them, for the duration of the day. Wagner tries to find a different pair of jeans to wear, only to discover that one of his army friends has stolen them all, leaving him with nothing but a pair of sweatpants, that he hasn't worn in years. Not helping matters, is the large amount of attention they get him, from many of the female onlookers, including his opponent Myra.
    • And just before the fight, he eagerly awaits to see who'll fight next. Guile tries to tell him that it could very well be him, to which Wagner doesn't believe will happen.
      Cammy: {Myra} looks easy to beat. Too bad, I'm not fighting until tomorrow.
      Wagner: Yeah. However, seeing that so many men like her, I'm going to feel sorry for the one male to has to fight her…
      Shadow Priest: Wagner!
      Wagner: …Oh good, I'm the lucky one.
  • Having just won her first match, Cammy decides to reward herself, with a trip to the local Hot Spring. She soon strips down and is all ready to enjoy herself…and accidentally walks into the Men's section, where she finds Jin Kazama, in all his glory. After processing what's happened, she quickly apologizes and exits, leaving Jin in a momentary state of Dull Surprise.
  • Even after winning his first match, poor Dan doesn't get any respect.
    Dan: Remember everyone, think pink!
    Audience member: You still suck!
  • Chapter 15 contains a clock-full of funny moments. To begin with...
    • After the first round of the tournament, Cody, Ken, Lei, McCoy, Wagner and Yang, decide to relax with some Outworld liquor
      McCoy: Now, let’s not drink too much because we might get in trouble.
      Lei: You said it!
      * Twenty Minutes Later*
      Cody: Whoaaaa! I see coloooooors…
      Wagner: I feel GREAT! I loooove hard liquor!
      Yang: Me TOO!
      Ken: I can’t feel feelings…I wonder if that’s a goooood thing.
      McCoy: *singing* I’ve been wooooorking ooooon the raiiiilroaaaad!
      Lei: *attempts to dance the Marcarena, but fails as he falls back in the sand* Heeelp, I’m drowniiing!
    • And when Rose reprimands the group, Raiden on the other hand...
      Rose: What kind of influences will you be to your future children? You are the defenders of the realms for crying out loud!
      Raiden: Yeah, and how dare you did not invite the Thunder God to drink with you!
    • It also has a bit of a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment, where Paul ends up fighting an alien.
    • How Cassandra joins the heroes. Bored out of her mind, she walks through the forest only to find the hot springs...and Ibuki, Maki, Sakura, Asuka and Maki peeping at the boys. The funny part? Xianghua catches them red-handed and they quickly stumble on the fence, making it collapse and surprising the men inside.
  • Raiden, accidentally calling Rose a psycho instead of a psychic, thus starting a reoccurring gag between the two. Made even funnier, when the author revealed this was originally a typo, that she decided to leave in.

     Majin Seiryu Ki 
  • In an attempt at getting Ivy to open up, Yoshimitsu pays her a visit, with an offering. A Pepperoni Pizza. Being from a different realm, set in a completely different era, Ivy is rather unimpressed & skeptical, though eventually warms up to it.
    Ivy: …But I suppose trying it is better than not eating at all.
    Yoshimitsu: In that case, would you be willing to try san-nakji in the future?
    Ivy: The…what?
    Wagner: ...Never mind. One thing at a time, I suppose.
