Top 10 Funniest Moments From The Punch-Out Video Game Series

The Top Ten

1 Aran Ryan dancing around the ring like an insane leprechaun and attempting to whip Mac to death with a horseshoe-rigged boxing glove on a rope (and also being generally crazy and sadomasochistic) in the Wii installment
2 Narcis Prince going completely berserk when Mac finally manages to land a hit on his face in the SNES installment

Honestly, the whole fight in general (though admittedly pitifully easy for being placed in the game's Special Circuit) is absolutely hilarious in its own right; his later-revealed Cockney accent despite clearly having an upper-class background, his ridiculous banana hair and the fact that he looks like a human Fisher-Price Little Person, the pricelessly smug way in which he quite literally "looks down" on Little Mac all throughout the match, his incredibly stupid choice of television career, the way that he wails like a little girl when being knocked down, his facial expressions in general, the fact that he even boxes in a boxing variation of the classic "stereotypical narcissistic jock" uniform from decades past (complete with the classic letterman varsity jacket that we all know and love to hate many of the people that wear), etc - xandermartin98

3 Super Macho Man and Aran Ryan both being actively despised and even regularly pelted with food items by the audience in the Wii installment (particularly in its Title Defense mode)

Also, the crowd goes absolutely WILD with applause whenever one of the two gets knocked down - xandermartin98

4 Von Kaiser cowering behind his gloves and crying out for his mother in his Contender match from the Wii installment

Even in his Title Defense match, he clearly needs some SERIOUS mental help, but at least he's past THIS phase - xandermartin98

5 Super Macho Man grinning from ear to ear with his mouth as wide-open as it can possibly go and his eyes bloodshot with pure joy in response to being decked in the face by Little Mac in the SNES installment

Honestly, THIS actually freaked me out quite a bit on my first few times fighting him (shudders) - xandermartin98

6 Instant-KO body-blow counter on Glass Joe's "Viva La France" taunt in the NES and Wii installments (and on Gabby Jay's counterpart to it in the SNES installment)
7 Great Tiger's new foreign-language taunt instructing Little Mac to "suck on his mom's teat" in the Wii installment
8 Doc Louis himself actually visibly fearing for Little Mac's safety when the WVBA pits him up against Mr. Sandman in the Wii installment

Funny because it's so completely out-of-character - xandermartin98

9 Making Super Macho Man yell "RELEASE THE BOGUS" and "RELEASE THE DUDE" in his Title Defense match from the Wii installment

Triggered by dodging his "RELEASE THE BEAST" uppercuts, naturally - xandermartin98

10 Little Mac's creeped-out reaction when Doc Louis (in response to getting his chocolate bar knocked out of his hands) tears off his jacket and reveals his leopard-spotted shirt in the Wii installment
