A joke that gets repeated over the show.

My personal favorite, and a new one, is the bench from Ore wo Suki nano wa Omae dake ka yo ( Are you the only one who loves me?).
"The world is not beautiful, therefore it is."

A really strong one is from Gintama. The one where Shinpachi is literally just a pair of glasses.

Gintama has many great ones though.

Every time in One piece where Robin makes a morbid joke about them possibly dying or getting injured horribly.

My favourite one is Kondo stalking Otae in Gintama.

I always crack up when they mention him while Otae is around and he casually walks out of his hiding spot.

About the only series with gags I know. But Gintama is really rich in gags.

In anime? It's got to be Hachikuji mispronouncing Arararararagi's name, and the subsequent exchange. Actually, the Monogatari series is full of good running gags, but that one is the best.

However, the true masterclass in running gags is in the manga of Jitsu Wa Watashi Wa (the anime never really made it far enough to showcase them). The Russian Choux, ice cream in the eyeballs, the police car panel, 'uwow', Karen being an adorable angel... yeah, there's just way too many to list, and I couldn't possibly list my favourite.

May sounds mean, but in some animes the purpose of one character is just being bullied/harassed/trashtalked by everyone else

Like Carmilla (Kemono Michi), Isao Kondou (Gintama), Aqua (Konosuba) or Ristarte (Cautious Hero)


Besides that, honestly I would say any running gag from Gintama.
And then, God missed a step of his stairs

That only works when the person that's being trashtalked is a terrible person themselves.Otherwise it's treading a thin line between comedy and actual harassment.

Or for comedic purposes. All the anime I've quoted are comedies, but none of these characters are terrible persons. Does they deserve that bullying ? Mmh, no. But, is that funny ? Hell yes it is

Shinji trying to man up and failing fabulously every frikin' time.

Also each and every girl in SAO getting rejected by Kirito because he only has eyes for his wife/girlfriend Asuna!
Logan Lerman is the love of my life. Someday we'll marry.
Asuna, Emilia and Zelda are the ultimate goddesses of everything that's good and pure.
Zack Fair, Mahiro Fuwa and Edward Elric are the best boys of all time.
Hagane no Renkinjutsushi is the best work of fiction ever recorded in human history.
Yuki Kajiura's music can cure and heal every disease ever known by men. Oblivious is her magnum opus.
Women are the scum of this earth, and I can assure you they're well aware of that.

One is a lie. The other ones are not. DEUS VULT!

The line involving some kid throwing a jelly donut in a pool in the dub of Digimon Adventure 02. It's so stupid but I love it.

Also Hijikata and his mayonnaise in Gintama.

Tbh probably nothing from anime, but one of the anime related things that comes to mind is anything involving the shogun in Gintama :>
Or anything involving 'rape' in Detroit Metal City

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.
