There's a joke to be made about cinema scenes and scripted portions of games where the protagonist is told to draw their sword and they instead bring out whatever ranged weapon the player currently has equipped.
Character is what you are in the dark.

Don't Need No Mantis (Cockfighting Society)

Panel 1: The Trainer is talking to the Day Care Couple, who look nervous. The Day Care Man is handing her an egg.
-Day Care Man: Your Scyther was holding an egg! You want it, right?
-Trainer: Yeah! Thanks!
Panel 2: Trainer is riding off on a bicycle and waving to the Day Care Couple. They're waving back.
-Couple: We hope to see you again!
Panel 3: The Day Care couple (on the left side of the panel) are watching the trainer ride off. Both are visibly horrified, sweating profusely, and have obviously forced smiles. On the right side of the panel we can see a pair of Scyther behind the Day Care House; the one with the shorter abdomen has no head.
-Day Care Lady: Should I tell her that mantises–
-Day Care Man: No, let's keep this between us for now.

There has to be some comic to make about how you can purchase Spirits from shop owner Spirits in World of Light. Are the shopkeepers holding them for ransom?

Here's a Dark Souls joke...

Player: *rests at bonfire, stands up*
Enemy: *sees player, charges at them*
Player: *sits back down*
Enemy: *POOF! Position resets, charges at them again*
Player: *sits down*
Enemy: *POOF!* STOP THAT!

All in the Same Ship (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)
Ridley and Zero Suit Samus are fighting. Ridley activates his Final Smash, slamming Samus against her gunship and blasting her with a massive mouth laser. Samus survives, but just barely.
Samus: "You call that a final smash?"
Samus activates her own Final Smash and jumps onto her gunship only to find that it's completely wrecked after Ridley destroyed it during his Final Smash. It explodes and KOs her.

Kingdom Hearts 2 joke. Yay!

(Org. XIII is gathered on top of the castle in TWTNW)
Xemnas: "We have to build our own Kingdom Hearts out of the hearts Sora rescues from the Heartless. That is the only way we Nobodies can regain our hearts."
Saix: "How long will that take?"
Xemnas: "Years. And we'll have to start over if Sora messes something up. But it'll be worth it!"
Axel: "Actually, if we die we come back to life with our hearts... somehow."
Xigbar: "Wait, really?"
Xemnas: "Does that make sense?"
Axel: "I wouldn't worry about it."
Saix: "Then why are we bothering with all this?"
Xemnas: "..."

The Backfire Effect

Mewtwo tosses a fully charged shadow ball at the Villager.
The Villager grabs the shadow ball and tosses it at Fox.
Fox reflects it at Pit.
Pit reflects it at Dr.Mario.
Dr. Mario bounces it with his cape at Zelda.
Zelda Naryu loves it and...

<pick an ending>
Ending 1:
Ness PSI magnets it and somehow gets negative percentage damage.

Ending 2:
Ness hits it back at Mewtwo with his home run bat and everyone sweats bullets as the madness continues ad infinitum...

Ending 3:
Ness explodes and Dr. Mario finishes by saying "Most doctors would press charges after seeing what one sees here."

Ending 4:
Instead of P8 being Ness, it's Marth. He gets blasted to the 4th wall blast zone so hard he breaks through the screen.

Ending 5:
P8 is Lucario, and ends up becoming ridiculously powerful after taking a hit from the reflected and ridiculously amplified shadow ball. The other 7 guys run away in mortal terror.

Final Fantasy character gets petrified. Ally grabs them and tosses them in a washing machine. They tumble for a few panels before the ally remembers to add a cup of liquid from a bottle labeled Soft.

I like the implication that FF characters just carry around washing machines.

Won't eat anything with a face

Lucas is visiting Dr. Mario. He looks emaciated and you can see his ribs.
Lucas: "I haven't eaten anything for 15 days."
Dr. Mario: "..why?"
Lucas flashes back to a moment eating chicken drumsticks. While eating it, he gets stared down by Falco, the Duck Hunt Duck, and maybe Samus (who was raised by the bird-like Chozo).
Lucas: "The experience was harrowing..."
Dr. Mario: "Okay, so why don't you eat any fruits or vegetables?"
Lucas flashes back to a moment eating a salad. He's getting stared down by the Pikmin, Ivysaur, and the Piranha Plant. (I don't know how a Piranha Plant can stare, but you managed to make a Zubat cry before, so I know you can do it).

Katie's a literal rocket scientist. Kerbal Space Program is a game about literal rocket science. I'm amazed Katie didn't make a KSP strip yet,so here's my idea.

To the Mun

Panel 1: Katie's sitting at her computer desk,staring at the screen in concentration.
Panel 2: Katie's expression changes to one of intense thought,as a thought bubble above her head displays rocketry equations,or some other visual indicator that she's trying to make a Kerbin-to-Mun vehicle.
Panel 3: The screen shows a proper rocket on the launchpad,with Katie declaring something along the lines of, "Perfect!"
Panel 4: The rocket fails,somehow.
Panel 5: Katie looks incredibly put out,while Norrin wanders in behind her chair.
Panel 6: Norrin: Did you try more struts and solid fuel boosters?
Panel 7: Katie in dumbfounded silence.
Panel 8: The spaghetti mess of struts and boosters makes it to the Mun,with Katie making a noise of frustration.
I lurk because I care.

No Accounting for Taste:
The Piranha Plant sees a plate of spicy curry. Dumps it into her pot as fertilizer because she's a plant.
Everyone else on stage looks on in disgust/disbelief.
Piranha Plant: "Mmm... Spicy..."

Alliance Defiance (Civilization 5)
George Washington's walking around a city in America. Suddenly, he's stopped by an American citizen.
Citizen: "Hey, did you hear about that Picasso guy from Boston? What a great artist!"
Washington: "Who?"
Suddenly, an American messenger runs up to Washington.
Messenger: "Sir, we've received a message from Zanzibar. They're so impressed by our great artist that they've decided to become our ally."
Washington: "Where's Zanzibar?"
Another American messenger runs up to Washington.
Messenger: "Sir, we've received messages from France, Greece, Sweden, China, and India. Apparently they've all been competing for the favor of Zanzibar for a long time, and they're so angry that we've supplanted them that they're declaring war on us."
In the last panel, we see America being torn apart by all its rival nations. Washington gets down on his knees and yells to the heavens.
Washington: "CURSE YOU, PABLO PICASSO!"

This is an old game and it's not likely to go anywhere. (Sly Cooper)

Sly Cooper's Dad: Someone's coming! Go and save yourself!

Sly: But what about you, Dad?

Dad: Don't worry for me, I'm a Professional!
