    The Games 
  • The secret skaters are one big, long, Crowning Moment of Funny, from Marvel Comics characters like Spider-Man and Iron Man, to movie characters like Darth Maul and Shrek, to musicians like Gene Simmons.
  • Many of Bam Margera's voice clips.
    "Oh, that's some BULL—[bleep]"
    [constant bleeps]
  • The whole "Darren Thorne's Pro Ping-Pong" Running Gag hidden inside the earlier titles. THUG Pro then brings back said gag as a billboard advertisement for a game, being sold at GameScam.
  • Canada in Pro Skater 3 has a goal in which you have to "Get Chuck Unstuck". "Chuck" is a child whose tongue is stuck to a pole, while being endlessly harassed by bullies. The solution? Grind on his tongue. Afterwards, he goes running around, holding his tongue in pain.
  • The song "Drunken Lullabies" turns just about any mission in Pro Skater 4 into a CMoF, especially Bam Margera's Pro Challenge.
  • Jamie Thomas' excited noises while performing specials in Pro Skater 4 can make anyone chuckle.
  • The scene in THUG where Bam is mesmerized by the Russian tanks.
    Bam: Mmmmm, tanks... Aww, tank—look at these tanks. Damn, look at these tanks.
    • And then, after Sparrow apologizes to you, and Todd orders the both of you to get going:
      Bam: It's sooo good... We can't go skating right now, look at these tanks! Damn!
  • Every scene in THUG2 with Paulie "Wheels of Fury" Ryan.
    "Oh, you want some of me? [spins around and hits you in the knee] BRING IT ON, BITCH!!"
    "Please keep all hands and feet inside the port-a-potty as you... TAKE A DRINK, BITCH!!"
    "Me grande chorizo es el jefe mamacita!" (Rough translation: "My large sausage is the head mama!")
    "Hey lady, let's see them sweater pickles! OPEN UP SHOP!"
  • Bam scaring Eric Sparrow in THUG2. After all the crap he put you through in the previous game, it kinda feels karmic:
    Bam: [pointing a chainsaw at Sparrow] Did you ever think the last words you would hear would be...
    [Sparrow Screams Like a Little Girl]
    Bam: [takes off mask] ...Hello, butt-nuggets!
    • It's then revealed that Sparrow was scared so bad, that he pissed AND shit himself.
      Bam: Like that: 50 points if you can get someone to hose their pants.
      [close-up of Sparrow's crotch, soaked in urine]
      Sparrow: Come on, that's sweat!
      Bam: Whooo...and 20 points if there's any luggage in the trunk.
      [you back your chair away from Sparrow]
      Sparrow: What? I had a fruit salad, all right?
  • "You like it? It's my BMW: My Boozed-up Moron Wagon!"
  • Eric Sparrow attempting to do a trick off a high ledge, only to crash into a wiener cart instead.
    Sparrow: Check me out! I'm goin' BIG! OH SH—[bleep]!!
    Mike V: Dude, could he suck any more?
    Muska: Yo, it's kind of ironic, man. [picks up a wiener and waves it in front of Mike] Him nailing a wiener cart...get it?
  • At the end of THUG2, Nigel Beaverhausen being given what he believes to be the World Destruction Tour highlight tape. What he ends up getting is Phil Margera defecating, yelling to his wife that there's no more toilet paper, and then proceeding to wipe with a towel. Nigel's reaction is priceless. And the best part? This was on live television.
    • Afterwards:
    Tony: Thank you, world, for tuning in! But before we go, we'd like to leave you with one little thing...
    [Bam sneaks in and pulls down Nigel's pants, as Nigel emits a high-pitched shriek]
  • The "real" World Destruction Tour montage shows footage of the pro skaters...but once it gets to Bam Margera, most of the clips are of him bailing.
  • In American Wasteland, on your first ride around Hollywood, your final objective is to make combos big enough to bring down the dinosaur prop at the top of an abandoned museum. When you do, the dino falls on the street right over a speeding bus that proceeds to rip its head off and drive on with it straight into an Animal Wrongs Group of protesters... The best part is when the dino's head crashes into one of the hapless protesters, mouth-first:
    Mindy: Holy sheep! I guess this proves that T-Rex was a carnivore.
  • The many bail messages if you ran into potential hazardous areas or in some secret parts:
    "Don't build this at home!"
    "Don't do drugs!"
    "Nice one!"
    "No free skates!"
    "No swimming"
    "Serve, set, spike!"
    "Shish kabob?"
    "Who built that?!"
    "You're hosed!"
  • If you select Officer Dick in 1+2, you get to see him use his skateboard like a guitar, complete with a guitar riff.
  • Rodney Mullen's bonus outfit in 1+2 is the brightly colored shirt and tight shorts getup he's wearing in a famous video of him from a freestyle competition in the mid 80s, complete with the relevant 80s hair. What makes it hilarious is that this is that he's not de-aged for this outfit at all, so it just looks like a 53 year old Rodney having a mid life crisis.
