From Roleplay.World War X:

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Tsathoggua appears suddenly during the fight with Baalzebul, then disappears just as quickly and is never mentioned again.
    • The Well Dressed Man re-enacts the "Smooth Criminal" music video during a lull in the fighting.
  • Crazy Awesome:
    • San Martin Txiki.
    • Mars who wields a weaponized tractor, and throws carroy grenades.
    • El Coronel and his Mexican skeleton regiment.
    • The Eagle Warriors, as evidenced by their response to homing missiles: head-butting them.
  • Funny Moments: How the Wendigo gets rid of Martin Txiki. He picks him up and uses him as a baseball in a game with Hercules.
    • Batter up!
      • Speaking of that, the sequence leading up to that, in which San Martin manages to outrun and outwit the Wendigo.

    • This post, which turns the emergency removal of a Alves- thrown spear from the Steed Of Wotan into Koschei/Sleipnir Slash Fic.
    • Some of Heracles and Hercules' dialogue.
      Hercules, on the Roman's return: Ha! You see? We merely pull back so as to come back harder than ever!
      Heracles: What a coincidence! I told Your Mom the exact same thing last night!
  • Glurge: The successful resurrection of the Engineer, by way of his own wrench.
  • Heartwarming Moments: The revelation and "thawing" of Fade's sister.
  • Moment of Awesome: All over the place.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The first depiction of the enraged Alves; Baalzebul; the depths of depravity Eavle has sunken to; The Wendigo and her complete lack of mercy...
  • Uncanny Valley: The cyborgs of the Technological Ascendancy Battalion have glossy, plastic skin that reflects all light sources, and their movements are described as simultaneously too stiff and too fluid to be natural. Then there's the whole "turning their body parts into high-grade weapons with disgusting noises" thing...

  • What an Idiot!: Wotan summons Niddhogg, who doesn't want to obey him. Hilarity Ensues (for the Made of Iron characters, at least...)
