  • The Chessmaster calling Deathlist Precious. (Yes really. Go read Insanity Prerequisite.)
    • For some context, Deathlist is a 6 ft cyborg who's also an internationally wanted super villain.
  • This is probably Black Comedy, but this conversation from Ayla and the Mad Scientist:
    Nikki: Oh, Goddess! I'm the worst supervillain in the past two years!
    Hank: Man. What do you say to that?
    Toni: We're number one?
  • When Nacht gets psychically whammed by Bliss, who induces happiness, her reaction is to scream 'I'm happy! The bitch must DIE!'

  • In "Quote the Ninja, Nevermore", Daikon attempts a paralyzing nerve strike against Toni, complete with Hand Seals and shouting "COILING VIPER FANG STRIKE!" She blocks it and then uses it on him, shouting "Something something STRIKE!"
  • A new kid introduces himself to his fellow new kids as 'Buck Swift, Boy of Tomorrow!' They then proceed to mercilessly mock him until they've deemed him 'Buck Swift, Boy of Next Wednesday Afternoon, Weather Permitting'.
  • Nikki and Jade end up talking about sexy underwear while shopping. Jade trolls Nikki by deliberately missing the point.
    Nikki: Well, some girls buy what they think their boyfriends would be most interested in seeing – whether or not they actually show him. So if they know they look good, then they feel good about themselves.
    Jade: Stuff he’d like to see, gotcha. I found these Tenchi Muyo ones, and I’m gonna get them anyway, even though I don’t know if Stephen likes that show. I’ll have to work on that with him. But I didn’t see anything with planes or samurai swords or anything. He likes money, but I didn’t see any prints like that, either.
    Nikki: [stares]
    Jade: Maybe they have lizard prints or something. I’ll go look.
    • Nikki falls for it, too, even though she knows Jinn (not to mention Jet) are rarely confused about that kind of thing.
  • The end of Silent Nacht, Part 4 has a four way fight between the toughest sheriff's deputies in Los Angeles county, a group of transformed teenagers who now resemble monsters and are winging their way through every fight, a new team of 'supervillains' who style themselves 'The Radical Squad' and who've all named themselves after outdated or just plain ridiculous pieces of slang, and one of the local superhero teams (The Hollywood All-Stars), who are all (except for one) attention whores who are more focused on looking good for the cameras than on actual fighting. It's hilarious.
    • To add to the humor of the scene, the West Coast League, a far more competent superhero team (who are bound by superhero etiquette not to jump in unless asked to) just sit down with popcorn to watch the video (which the Radical Squad have are livestreaming), critiquing the absurd catchphrases and terrible tactics on display.

  • In Yet Another Day As An Outcast, the Outcasts take on the Goobers in an arena match. They start off by summoning the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
  • At the Halloween dance, Miyet has Hello Kitty gear glued onto her. Jimmy T. asks Circe (yes, that Circe) to get it off, and Circe does so with the spell 'Bippity boppity boo, no glue for you!' It works.
  • In the first Boston Brawl story, people keep identifying Heartbreaker by her ass.
  • In "Toni and the Tiger", Nikki keeps touching Toni's new mithril bracelet while they're in class, until Toni snatches her wrist away, causing the teacher to ask if there's a problem. Toni replies, "Yeah! Nikki keeps fondling my bling-bling!”
  • Ayla's reactions to Jade's antics.
    • Ayla once muses while Jade is showing off her new purse, that any pursesnatcher who takes Jade's bag could probably look forward to getting facehuggered.

    • The Radioactive Condor Girl.
    • Shoulder Angels.
    • They even lampshade this dynamic by casting themselves as Giggle Girl and her nemisis, No Fun Guy!
  • Let's sum it up. If Babs Yarbunkle, Diane Castle, or Bek D. Corbin are writing? Hilarity will ensue.
  • The Goths trying to sacrifice Sara. First Sara points out that they could've waited until Halloween, for a mystically significant date. The leader laughs and says it's not a real mystical date, at which the rest of the group stare at him in disbelief and have to inform him that it actually is. Even one of the cheerleaders present looks up from her manicuring to remark that "Everyone knows that." Then he brushes it off, saying the ritual doesn't require a special time or place and could even be done in the kitchen, and that he got it from a "Bargain Book of Shadows". When Sara scoffs at this, one of the cheerleaders pipes in that those spells actually work — her cousin’s uncle’s sister’s brother’s old roommate did a money spell and won $8.35 in the lottery.
    • The icing on this cake is that the demon they try to sacrifice Sara to turns out to be Gothmog, her own father.
  • Buster tries to pick on four junior high kids... and the kids in question turn out to be Ember (a pyrokinetic so strong she can't use her powers unless on one of the shooting ranges), Pahelee (an Exemplar Four, who kicks him in the shin so hard she knocks him over), Miranda (a PDP 6 who pegged him as a bully instantly) and Shifty, who starts trying to eat him. Everyone takes the opportunity to laugh at how bad he gets his arse kicked.


How well does it match the trope?
