Assault with a deadly weapon (Yakuza series)

Panel 1: A group of goons are sitting around in an office setting, looking tough, smoking, with tattoos, etc. Off to the side and is a small kitchenette area with various items like a kettle, cutlery tray, salt shaker, etc.

Panel 2: Close up on new goon entering through the door, shouting "Guys, Kiryu is coming! Hide anything he can use as a weapon!

Panel 3: Goons frantically carrying all sorts of objects. A lamp, chairs, stack of papers, fish bowl, plunger, telephone, etc.

Panel 4: Cut back to show the office, now completely barren save for the lone salt shaker on the counter. Speech bubble "We should be ok now, right?"

Panel 5: Kiryu, enraged, holding a goon by the shirt, pouring salt into terrified goon's eyes.
Look at you, rodent. A pathetic creature of cheese and grain, panting and squeaking as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, enneamortal feline?

Just watched Terminator 2 with my Nephew, who had never seen it before.

Bad Influence (Terminator 2)

Terminator is triaging Dyson's bullet wound.
Termie: "Clean penetration, no damage to the bone. Apply pressure here to stop the bleeding."
(Turns to Sarah) Termie: "I have noticed that you use full metal jacket rounds."
Sarah: "Yeah?"
Termie: "Hollow point bullets cause more damage to organic targets."
Sarah: "But full metal jackets might damage machinery."
Termie: "... Fair point. Dickwad."
Sarah: "! JOOOHN!"

With every remake comes an opportunity to revive my tired old jokes.

Link Awakens:
Link battles the Nightmares holding the Windfish captive. Windfish is giving a presentation in his underwear. Windfish hasn't studied for a test. Windfish is covered in scorpions. Etc.

some sorta scenario where snake is upset that bayonetta, joker, and kirby get to have guns even though he wasn't allowed to have any for brawl and it's still a clause on his contract or something that hasn't expired so he still can't have guns and he's grumpy about it

Death Note:
Dr. Mario is examining the Superspicy Curry.
MARIO: "Curious. Spice is just capsaicin. Fire shouldn't be the output."
SAMUS: "Huh. Hadn't realized. What should it be? Some sort of acid?"
MARIO: "Not quite. Probably something like pepper spray, an irritant based weapon."
Master Hand is writing down "Pepper spray curry?" in an over-sized notebook. Above it reads "acid curry".
SAMUS: "Wh...are you taking notes?"
Possible alternate setup has various characters mentioning dangerous items from their universe that haven't been introduced into Smash yet.

Cash the Check:
A Mechon version of Garfield stating how he "Hates Monados."

Limit Break:
Is it too late to do a Super Mario Galaxy comic where Mario accidentally hits the Roche Limit?

Litterbug Link:
Link takes a picture of trash he's bagged up for the #Trashtag challenge with his Sheikah Slate. The next panel shows him making the mess in the first place, leaving broken weapons, discarded items, and bombs all over the place.

Mortal Recoil:
Gaige grabs a weapon that's rated as one level too high for her to use. She equips it anyway and looks around to make sure no one is watching. Fires it. Last panel shows her with two cybernetic arms after the recoil.

Get What You Pay For:
A Vault Hunter finds a weapon of such legendary rarity that its color is black. Its stats are all infinity. Its level requirement is only 1. The Vault Hunter equips the weapon, aims at a Rakk and pulls the trigger. The game's end credits roll. Funnier if the weapons is purchasable DLC.

Ignoble Defeat:
Link knocks a Moblin down in combat. Stands over it holding a Great Flamesword. The Moblin smiles.
MOBLIN: "Perhaps this is a worthy death..."
Link puts away the Great Flamesword and pulls out a Soup Ladle. Moblin frowns. Whack.

Research & Destroy:
Link loves his endless supply of bombs so much he bothers Zelda repeatedly for an Arrow Rune. She chases him away with a toad between two slices of bread.

In Stardew Valley I've been using the same fish for years to win the grange display contest, which I find hilarious. That premise seems like good comic fodder xD

Snake In The Tower (Teen Titans)

Deathstroke (AKA Slade) cuts off one of Beastboys' arms before Cybrog shouts at him to turn into a snake while blasting Deathstroke. He then spends a lot of time in the tower as a snake with a giant cartoon band-aid on its' side, lounging across Raven and Starfires' laps when Super Girl (is she a Titan? Let's say she's a Titan) tells them that she can tell he healed up a week ago. Raven and Starfire get angry, so he just says 'nope', transforms into a hummingbird and, well, nopes out of there.

SDS Not Included:
The Vault Hunters are assaulting a Bandit camp, trying to solve a mystery. We see their point of view via a Sniper Rifler. Maya shoots a red barrel which bursts into flames and ignites a couple of bandits.
MAYA: "So...fuel, obviously."
GAIGE: "Yeah, easy answer."
Gaige shoots an electric barrel.
GAIGE: "So that's just a big battery for powering electronics."
Maya shoots a Cryo Barrel.
MAYA: "Coolant, like for refrigeration?"
GAIGE: "Definitely."
Deathtrap throws a Slag Barrel at some enemies.
MAYA: "Waste storage."
They spy a Corrosive Barrel.
GAIGE: "What the hell are those for, then?"
A Psycho shows up behind them unexpectedly but doesn't attack.
PSYCHO: "It's how we clean the crappers."

There's Probably a Fallout Boy Reference to be Made in the Title:
Katie plays a scary game with a brightness adjuster. The message says to adjust the slider until a gray bar is just barely visible. Katie looks around, laughs, and ramps the slider to maximum brightness. The gray bar now reads "LIAR".

Lol, that's the horror game equivalent of the Blizzard RTS games giving you a rating of 'Cheater!' if you used a cheat code during a campaign level.

Startrolls (Bumblebee the movie) SPOILERS

On the DVD there's a scene that didn't make it to the final version, where Shatter and Dropkick (the red and blue Decepticons) are just chilling out in the military bases' motorpool, waiting for authorization to access the Americans' satellite network. They busy themselves by examining the hardware before the base nerd lets them know they've been cleared to use said satellites.

In this version they're in an empty room, sitting in front of a television. The nerd comes in and the TV is saying "Final report of the commercial starship Nostromo, third officer reporting"
Red Decepticon: Friend Human, you told us that we were the first contact your people made with extraterrestrials.
Nerd: Yeah..?
Blue Decepticon: Then can you explain this?
Nerd: That's... a work of fiction.
The Decepticons look at one another, then at the nerd, and shake their heads at him.
Nerd: (disbelief, doubt, then abject horror)

Self Preservation:
A Trainer finds the two Fossils in the desert in Ruby & Sapphire. If the one Fossil is grabbed, the other will sink into the desert. Trainer gets greedy. Tries to grab both. Sinks into sand with the Fossils. Years later Trainer Katie arrives and finds three Fossils.

New Pro Portions:
Galar region scientists successfully increase the size of a Pokemon using the new Dynamax technology. I'm thinking Farfetch'd. The Pokemon celebrates until it hears the scientists proclaim an end to world hunger.

Mobile Bat:
Lucius Fox introduces Batman to the new ejection feature in the Batmobile. It uses a railgun like tech to eject Batman by his new Batsuit. Batman tests it out. We see the Batsuit launched out into the streets. A nude Bruce Wayne is left behind in the Batmobile.

The Owl Knows:
Link obtains the Stone Beak in a dungeon. Giggles. Fights bad guys. Giggles. Solves puzzles. Giggles. Kills Nightmare. Giggles. Gets outside and the Owl starts one of his lectures. Link keeps giggling.
OWL: "What's so funny?"
LINK: "Got your nose."

Instruments of Torture:
Link gathers eight instruments to wake the Windfish. The Bellowing Bagpipes. The Cacophonous Cowbell. The Vuvuzela of Veracity. The Theremin of Thistles. The Recorder of Reckoning. The Didgeridoo of Darkness. The Ash Accordion. The Kaiser Keytar. Link brings out the Ocarina and before he can blow the first note the Wind Fish busts out to of the Egg.
WIND FISH: "I'm awake!!"

Pro Teen Chef:
Link prepares a meal over a campfire for Zelda after her rescue.
LINK: "Want some meat?"
ZELDA: "What is it?"
Link looks down at meat skewer questioningly.
LINK: "It's not fish or bird."
ZELDA: "That's... oddly nonspecific."
Link looks down again at the skewer.
LINK: "It's not frog."

Don't leek the punchline.

Poor Execution:
Sans shows up at the Smash Compound to hand out his new helmets.
SANS: "Tell those crazy kids to be careful, cuz they won't have much protection Sans Helmet."
Master Hand doesn't respond to joke. Continues taking inventory.

Underwhelming:
Sans delivers helmets to Smash Compound. Guilts fighters for not solving their disputes peacefully. Bayonetta hides gun shoes. Bowser carefully removes Roy's head from his mouth. Etc. Belmont tears up because Sans is so much nicer than the skeletons he usually has to deal with.

Additional joke: Sans makes finger guns at Master Hand. Master Hand responds in kind.

Super Savings:
First panel has old school Mario level with him jumping to collect coins. Last panel has him removing his own head to reveal that it's a piggy bank with a coin slot on top and a release on the bottom.

There It Is:
Trainer brags about Dynamaxing their Pokemon. Opponent is unconcerned.
OPPONENT: "Big whoop."
Trainer brings out Big Wooper.
TRAINER: "Damned straight."
Opponent is concerned.

Shovel Light:
Shovel Knight enters a new level. The caption reads "Steal Thy Shovel." A line strikes through the text, crossing it out. He lands only to find his shovel is missing. In the background the Goose runs away with his shovel.

Champion's Champion:
Link arrives in the forest to claim the Master Sword. He is warned that it will test his resilience and kill him if he isn't strong enough. He grabs the sword and pulls. His health gets dangerously low and he ceases his attempt. He ponders for a second before grabbing a willing Korok and easing it towards the sword as a stand in.

Rule #1 (Marvel)

Wolverine and Magneto are walking down a sidewalk, presumably during a ceasefire, when they happen across a construction site - the steelwork skeleton of a highrise building is partially up.
Logan: Hey bub, have you ever heard of the Fastball Special?
Magneto: I presume that's when someone launches you at a target?
Logan (pointing at the building frame): And you know how subways, railguns, and those sorts of things work, right?
Logan is in low orbit, Magneto is floating beside him, refusing to look embarrassed.
Logan: Gonna have to work on how much of the old elbow grease you put into that, bub.
Magneto: Just be glad that there's no 'terminal' in your terminal velocity, Logan.

Sun Roasted:
While on a boat trip Atreus inquires as to what happened to the Wings of Icarus. Kratos flashbacks to roasting and eating them years ago. Possible setup has Kratos telling the story of Icarus, before it changes to the God of War version where he rips them from Icarus, to post GoW III when Kratos gets hungry.

Close Shave:
Kratos looks down at Atreus, who is missing most of his hair.
KRATOS: "Adorable. Trying to imitate your father?"
Flashback to Kratos recklessly recalling the Leviathan Axe from a distance. Each time it narrowly misses Atreus taking some hair with it.

Land of Ass and Snow:
Kratos and Atreus arrive in Niflheim and experience the poisonous mists. Both gag at the smell.
ATREUS: "Ugh... Mimir, doesn't it bother you?"
MIMIR: "My boy, I have become quite accustomed to toxic gases."
Mimir's head is hanging in its usual place, next to Kratos's butt.

Spartan Stomp:
Kratos gets injured. Goes to step on a Healing Stone. It gets stuck in his foot.

Game of Catch:
Kratos and Atreus encounter a mass of enemies. One of them manages to injure Kratos and grapple him to the ground.
KRATOS: "Assist me boy!!"
Atreus throws a Healing Stone at Kratos and hits him in the face.
KRATOS: "Thank you, boy..."

Is This a Test?
A teenage Aloy is halfway through eating a mushroom at Rost's command when she's told its unsettling name.

Boy Meets Wood:
Atreus tries to imitate his father by punching through a wooden chest. He only partially succeeds.
ATREUS: "Ow."
KRATOS: "Yes. That's the easy part. The splinters not so much."
ATREUS: "I can't get my hand out."
Kratos summons the Axe.

Now that you mention it, I forget what the mushrooms are called.

4Trooper (The Mandalorian) minor spoiler

A vertical, black and white, four panel comic with the two Imperial Scouts who snatch Baby Yoda.
It goes more or less like in the episode, except instead of just nipping the one dudes' finger Baby Yoda latches onto it, and the trooper is running around, screaming, and flailing his arm while the other one is falling off his speeder from laughing too hard.
Emperor's teeth how horrifying!
