Gag scenarios (ギャグシナリオ Gyagu shinario) are part of the Story Mode that first appear in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. Gags are non-canon side stories where usually a series of funny events take place. There are two types of gag scenarios: one-shots which don’t have sequels in later games, and running gags which get more scenarios in games. Although BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger does have gag endings, they are not specifically labeled as gag scenarios.
Ragna’s gag scenario
Ragna wakes up on a boat, and screams in terror as he finds out he has died and turned into a ghost. Rachel, Tager, and Nu are with him on the boat and are also ghosts. Upon finding this out Ragna becomes even more transparent because of his fear of ghosts. They run into another boat, the HMS Nirvana, lowly tuna fishing vessel with the ghosts of Jin, Hazama, Carl, Arakune (as the boat’s sail) and Nirvana (at the head of the boat) on board. Ragna is then swapped with the precious treasure the Red Grimoire the natural ruby of the deep, also known as the Ikaruga Tuna aboard the HMS Nirvana, lowly tuna fishing vessel. Ragna then wakes up to find that all of it was a dream.
Jin’s gag scenarioJin finds himself on a tropical island, which turns out to be alive and is able to talk. It introduces itself as the Ranking Island and starts ranking things from Jin’s mind, with things already ranked being disposed of. Ragna eventually appeared in these rankings, causing Jin to force the island to keep the three materializations of Ragna and battle them for eternity, which made the island to become known as Big Brother Island.
Noel’s gag scenarioNoel, along with Carl and Bang, got quite hungry during the battle, and Noel suggested a Chinese restaurant that is known for its signature dish, the Kagutsuchi puffer fish simmered in peppers and spices. However, it turned out that the restaurant had just been stormed by a Mechakaka, and the head chef had broken all his limbs by slipping on a peking duck. Noel decides to take over and cook meals for everyone, and Carl, who due to his past experiences with Noel’s cooking, volunteered to be a waiter. He announced to the customers that the Kagutsuchi puffer fish is the only available dish today, and everyone decided to stay and try it. Carl served Noel’s cooking, the Death Dinner to all off the customers, and after taking a single bite they all start vomiting and become extremely ill, in some cases they even appear dead. For reasons unknown, Hazama is the only one who enjoys the dish.
Rachel’s gag scenarioRachel finds Ragna at a restaurant and puts the Popularity Glasses on him. Luna, who was with Ragna, starts exclaiming her love for him. Litchi, Kokonoe and Noel then burst into the restaurant all looking for Ragna. Litchi tries to give Ragna a love potion, but Noel hits it away. Kokonoe then tries to give a candy to Ragna, and Litchi smashes it, recognizing that there is a sleeping pill inside of it. Noel then exclaims that Ragna is her husband and she officially registered their marriage. Then Makoto, Lambda and Nirvana come in, also looking for Ragna. Makoto says that Ragna is hot, while Lambda initiates her expression of love file, they then both proceed to jump on Ragna. While this is happening, Nirvana destroys Noel’s marriage registration and blows up the city hall so she cannot submit her duplicate ones. To end it all Jin comes into the restaurant looking at Ragna with heart-shaped eyes, and then pulls out Yukianesa. Rachel, predicting disaster, jumps out of the restaurant as an explosion happens inside. Rachel then sees the Popularity Glasses lying on the ground, and puts them on, wondering why they did not affect her.

Litchi then pretends that Lao Jiu has taken control of her and that it will do terrible things to her if Tsubaki does not obey her, telling her to clean Litchi’s house and do her laundry. All the while Lao Jiu is actually pouring sake into Litchi.
Hazama’s gag scenario
- Hakumen does not have a gag scenario.
- Lambda’s gag scenario is more of a cute little side story.
- This scene is also featured in BlazBlue: Alter Memory although being quite different.
- Some gag scenarios do not have special images.
- Arakune’s gag scenario is the only one to have a fight in it, however the outcome is the same win or lose.
