->''"Note from Shaenon: I apologize for assaulting your delicate senses with what may be the two greatest pages in the history of comics, in which Manga/BlackJack OPERATES ON HIS OWN INTESTINES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK WHILE SURROUNDED BY RAVENOUS DINGOES. It had to be done."''

The highly stylized nature of {{anime}} (or {{manga}}) allows room for really cool things to happen. Here are some of the more memorable of those scenes.

Remember...the ''spoiler tag'' is your friend. If saying too much would ruin the surprise, '''leave it in spoilers'''.

Also see the Awesome/MechaAnime page, because Giant Robots are a whole other level of awesomeness.

[[AC:Other]]



* If anyone ever has to know why people are willing to pay millions of yen to Dr. Black Jack just for the privilege of having him slice you open, here is why: The man once successfully operated on his ''own intestines while lying in the middle of the Austrailian outback and surrounded by rabid dingos.'' Hol-Ay ''[[{{HSQ}} Shit]]!''
* ''[[UchuuSenkanYamato Space Battleship Yamato]]'' has a Moment of Awesome in the second movie, ''Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato'' not in a specific action, but by its pure inspiration. After watching the entire, built in the last 2 years, Earth Defense space navy get devastated on live TV, the alien Comet Empire demands Earth's surrender. Just before the surrender, the ''Yamato'' warps in between the Empire and Earth, and '''everyone on the planet''' says "It's ''Yamato!'' We still have the ''Yamato!'' We're gonna ''win!''". Keep in mind we're talking about a SINGLE SHIP apprearing as a reinforcement after an entire FLEET was almost effortlessly destroyed by the enemy.
** We would be remiss if we did not mention the Moment of Awesome in Final Yamato. The earth fleet has been wiped out and the planet Aquarius is on a direct collision course with our home. The only thing that stop this disaster is the power of the Wave Motion Gun, set to a wide angle dispersal. The Argo has been filled with a volatile explosive and gets underway to get into position to fire the gun and stop Aquarius - but the enemy fleet (with a vested interest in destroying Earth) moves to stop the Star Force. They cant fight back - the Wave Motion Gun is off line. They cant warp - there's not enough time. If the enemy engages the Argo, there's a good chance the ship will be destroyed before it ever reaches it's target! As the enemy fleet prepares to fire, suddenly the flag ship explodes as Desslok and the Gamalon Fleet (who haven't been seen all movie), come charging in for the rescue. The Star Force's one time mortal enemy does a complete Heel-Face turn and saves the day!
** Even the live-action movie has several ones including [[spoiler:Yuki doing a MisguidedMissile maneuver]] but the best one is at the very end, when Kodai is [[spoiler:flying the Yamato on a kamikaze run]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyncwLEcEzA a remastered version of a track quite familiar to all Yamato fans]] starts playing in the background as the Yamato is being shot to hell around him. It's a major TearJerker moment but ''damn'' if it isn't AWESOME.
* ''GashBell'' has Brago [[spoiler:wiping out the entire QuirkyMinibossSquad with one attack without taking a hit himself]]. There's also [[spoiler:[[http://www.mangareader.net/266-18522-10/zatch-bell/chapter-161.html the last thing he says to a defeated Zophise]]]], [[spoiler:smashing up a bulldozer with one bare-handed punch]]... ''everything Brago does'' fits on this page. This manga also contains [[TheRival Bari]], who rivals Brago for the position of "walking MomentOfAwesome". And of course there's [[spoiler:Patie and Byonko's]] HeroicSacrifice, and ''everything'' about Kiees/Keys...
** Brago gets another one when he [[spoiler:[[http://www.mangareader.net/266-34310-13/zatch-bell/chapter-310.html punches Clear in the face]] for two reasons. One the only other time Clear really got hit was when Ashuron impaled him and that nearly killed him. Two, about three seconds ago Clear was telling Brago he doesn't stand a chance like the last time they fought.]]
*** Almost everything [[BadassNormal Sherry]] does qualifies as well. Particularly the way she fought Zophise's mind controlled humans AND demons!
** FOLGORE earns one when [[spoiler: Kanchome begins abusing his power, wanting to crush Goomu with his new found Mind Rape powers. Folgore blocks a punch from a now Faudo level Kanchome, and talks down a now psycho demon.]] Chapter 300 has turned the simple pop star into pure awesome. Also, his badass normal status for being being every bit the Determinator as Kiyo and Sherry, and a bit of Made of Iron for never seeming to get more than cut up for all the attacks he takes for [[spoiler: and from]] Kanchome.
*** I also liked Folgore's Badass metaphor thing (not sure if there is a trope for that), that he used to convince Kanchome to stop (I'm paraphrasing but this is the main conversation the two have, minus the flashback).
-->'''Folgore:''' "Don't you understand Kanchome? A bird won't rest on a lion's fangs."
-->'''Kanchome:''' "then... what you said that night... but... but... I don't want to go back to my weak self!"
-->'''Folgore:''' "Kanchome... I forgot to tell you that night... but the hippo is strong... especially when it's protecting it's children... IT CAN EVEN DEFEAT A LION!!!"
** Won Lei is plenty awesome, but especially when [[spoiler: after being separated from the rest of the group by a nigh impenetrable wall, he gets the living crap utterly beat out of him by Unko Tin-tin, until his partner Lee Yen powers him up from the other side (while BLINDFOLDED) and he turns the tables by beating him to a point where Unko decides to self destruct in order to have the last laugh, with a blast powerful enough to destroy above mentioned impenetrable wall and kill everyone on the other side of it. Won Lei, whilst in the process of being sent back to the Demon World, resolves himself to protect those on the other side of the wall by STANDING BACK UP and {{HeroicSacrifice using himself and the awesome of his presence as a shield]}}. By the time the self destruction is over, all that's left of the wall is HIS SILHOUETTE, behind which Lee Yen and the others were hiding.]]
** The entire ending of the final fight; [[spoiler:from Danny appearing to save Gash when everything seems hopeless to just about every ally Gash has ever made (and then some) showing up in spirit form to launch a huge, several chapter assault on Clear is pretty much this + [[Heartwarming Moment]].
** Just about ''anytime'' that [[FinishingMove Baou Zakeruga]] is used.
* The doujin manga ''Nami S.O.S.'' is a Hentai parody of magical girl stories. It focuses on a team of super-powered heroines, but by far the most memorable character is the main girl's BadassNormal brother. In one issue, the girl he's hot for is attacked by a pair of winged tentacle demons and winds up being molested by the two of them in midair. The guy picks up a big pole from I-can't-remember-where and tries to ''pole vault'' over to her from the roof of a skyscraper. He falls short and looks to be about to fall to his death, but instead manages to ''grab some of the beast's dangling tentacles'' and pull him off her from the force of his own falling through the air. This leads to ''a bout of fisticuffs in free-fall'' that ends with the guy using the side of a nearby skyscraper to ''scrape the demon's skull apart''. Meanwhile, the girl polishes off the other beast and arrives just in time to pluck him out of the air and carry him to a safe landing. This being a hentai manga- well, let's just say it's good times for him next issue...
* Minoru finally [[BewareTheNiceOnes letting Akira know what he really thinks of her]] in ''Anime/LuckyStar''. Also the entirety of his ImageSong, "Koi No Minoru Densetsu."
** Also, the dance number in the final episode.
** And don't forget Akira finally letting her inner professional shine through for just a little bit when singing ''Misoji Misaki'' in the karaoke box.
** The ''InitialD'' parody. Especially with [[MusicOfAwesome "Gravity"]] playing in the background.
** [[HotBlooded Anime Tenchou]] is a walking MomentOfAwesome... even if he never gets Konata to buy something from him.
** And finally... Konata's elaborate plan for taking everything there is in Comiket.
*** And her [[TestosteronePoisoning Testosterone Poisoned]] fantasy of [[HumongousMecha giant mecha]] dentists with [[ThisIsADrill drills]].
** The moments that concern the songs are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wfdCE3Obcg very]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEIgbH3Rx58 much]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK5m9ygwy5w topped]] in the concert.
* Everything Kyuuzou does in ''SamuraiSeven''. Also, episode 21. Two Nobuseri have been betrayed by Ukyo, and call him on it. Calmly, he turns around and continues his croquet game...as the [[WaveMotionGun main cannons of his Imperial Capital airship]] blow the giant robots to pieces not five feet away from him.
* In one chapter of ''FrankenFran'', Fran ends up getting her throat viciously slit open by a hitman hired by her client. Rather than die like any other person understandably would, she sits back up, with her head hanging off the back of her neck, pulls out her tools and gargles '''[[CatchPhrase "BEGIN... OPER.. ATION"]]''' She then ''reattaches her own head'' with barely any repercussions aside from some uncoordinated eyes and lots and lots of blood.
* The middle of the Divine Design (Cards) Arc of ''GetBackers'' is arguably one big, long Moment for Juubei. The awesome is how he pulls off two BigDamnHeroes rescues, masters the training the main characters struggled through in half the time, catches up to them in a labyrinth, defeats his [[TheFourGods Four Gods]] analogue without any hint of the mystical training he just mastered, breaks his friend's brainwashing... Did I mention he was recently blinded? Dialogue like "By order of Makubex, Juubei Kakei has arrived!" and "Juubei Kakei, at your service. I have come to study at your feet," somehow adds to the cool factor. He gets his MomentOfHeartwarming when he assures former rival Toshiki that he needs him, and starts mixing the Awesome and Heartwarming once [[spoiler:Toshiki is killed. Only not]]. Ginji seems to acknowledge the whole affair as Juubei's Moment of Awesome and an attempt to conquer past weaknesses, and it partially inspires him to want to get stronger himself.
* Near the end of ''TheThirdTheGirlWithTheBlueEye'', Bogie (an AI-controlled tank) takes on [[spoiler:an an anti-tank helicopter (also AI-controlled). He eventually takes it out by using a clever trick to ''leap into the air'' and shoot it [[strike:in the face]] at close range]].
** In the final episode, Honoka [[spoiler:wipes out an entire army with a single sword-stroke]].
* In ''[[{{Yotsubato}} Yotsuba&!]]'', CoolBigSis next door Asagi is the best person at managing Yotsuba, no easy task, and her moment is [[spoiler:"Say goodbye, little assassin."]] Awesome.
** Miura gets her moment of awesome as well, in the procession for a local shrine's [[FestivalEpisode festival]] -- so awesome, Yotsuba tries to imitate her.
** Yotsuba gets a moment in being [[CheerfulChild so freaking cute]] that the denizens of [[ImageBoards 4chan]] -- easily the most infamous and [[{{Squick}} squick-filled]] place on the internet -- will [[InternetBacklash flame anyone into eternity]] for posting {{Rule 34}} of her, something not even her predecessor [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Chiyo-chan]] (see CheerfulChild) could pull off.
* In ''{{Nana}}'', Yasu decking one of the {{Paparazzi}}.
* Archer's "Unlimited Blade Works" from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and the incredibly badass "Steel is my body and fire is my blood..." speech during the battle against Berserker that leads up to it. See also [[Awesome/VideoGames all the moments in the visual novel]].
* ''MegaManNTWarrior'': Rock and Fireman are trapped in a giant cage of vines protected by pure evil. As the villain Plantman gloats, Fireman turns to Rockman and declares: "Rockman, trust what I say. There's nothing I can't burn... no, there's nothing ''we'' can't burn!" This leads to Rockman gaining the Soul Unison: Fire Soul and proceeding to launch a combination attack with Fireman that completely incinerates all of Plantman's defenses and the bastard himself.
** The 2 parter where [[strike:[[DragonBooster Kitt Wonn]]]] [[MegaManNTWarrior Roll.EXE]] knocks the stuffing out of [[strike:[[DragonBooster Phistus]]]] [[MegaManNTWarrior Mega Man.EXE]]
* In ''Anime/CorrectorYui's'' second season, the episode where [[SilkHidingSteel Haruna Kisaragi]] decides to re-take her Corrector Haruna mantle when poor Yui is turned into stone in the Net.Com/rendered comatose in the Real World has her not only using the ''four'' elemental suits ''perfectly'' in very rapid succession, but teaming up with Corrector Ai to rescue Yui and other victims. Simply AWESOME way to subvert your semi-{{Chickification}}, Haruna!
* ''PrettySammy'' has Misao, for the first time ever, transforming into Pixy Misa with the use of a baton, along with the magic words, "Pixy Mutation! Magical Recall!".
** On the top of that, she gives a speech to Rumiya to encourage herself:
->'''Misao''': I'll be fine. I won't try to hide my weakness or jealousy anymore. I know I'm full of contradictions. But all things considered, I love myself and Misa. So I think I'll be fine. Please, Rumiya.
* Deedlit in ''RecordOfLodossWar'': ''Chronicles of the Heroic Knight''. With a bit of assistance from Parn and Ashram, [[spoiler:she all but drowned the huge dragon Shooting Star in a pool of lava with her shamanistic magic]]. This all but took the [[FauxActionGirl "faux"]] off of "faux [[ActionGirl action girl]]".
* May Wong in ''KaleidoStar''. Two words. "DEEEEEEMONIC SPIRAAAAAAAAAL!"
* ''{{Moetan}}'' episode 10. The whole of it. Ink and Sumi suiting up despite knowing this may be the last time they get to do the magic thing. Arks and Karks going human form and blasting the hell out of everything. BadassLongcoat Dandy being revealed as the KingIncognito. And then it all ends with Arks realizing that Alice's magical partner is...well, a loli, and promptly suffers a MegatonPunch. Also, there are ''Gundam'' references. It's a {{shounen}} finale amped up to 11. A perfect blend of absurdity, fanservice and awesome.
* The moment of awesome for Tamura Reiko in ''Parasyte'' had to be when she ran past a city of clueless onlookers, cackling maniacally, while ''missing the upper half of her head''.
** Even more awesome is what the upper half of her head is doing at this time. Namely, beating the shit out of two other parasites hunting her down. This is pretty much the [[BizarreAlienBiology Bizarre Alien Equivalent]] of kicking ass [[WithMyHandsTied with your arms chopped off]].
* An awesome ''and'' funny moment from the first season of ''{{Slayers}}'': After Zolf tries to attack Lina and Gourry by surprise, the two heroes make short work of his trolls by turning their healing powers against them with pebbles and a magic spell, causing them to disappear into nothingness. Right afterward, Lina prepares a spell to use against Zolf, sending him screaming and running away from the inn...from a harmless ball of light. The best mages learn to master the simple spells as well as the city-destroying ones ("[[SphereOfDestruction DRAGON SLAVE]]!").
** Another first season example: While fighting some mooks, Gourry swings his sword at one and misses, embedding the blade into a tree trunk. Rather than pulling the blade out to attack the mook creeping up behind him, Gourry simply pushes the blade right through the tree and cuts the mook in half, all in one motion, proving just how brutally strong this mostly normal human is in a world full of monsters and magic.
*** Of course, the very first time he uses the Sword of Light is one by default.
** During the second half of Slayers Revolution episode 8, Xellos reminds us just how powerful he is.
*** ''Slayers Evolution-R'': Xellos [[spoiler:destroys the Assassin Zuuma in mere seconds, who gave Lina and co. such a hard time throughout the season. To be fair he was caught off guard.]]
** Also, in Evolution-R episode 12 there's a very short but amazingly epic battle. The reason for this is both opponents being incredibly powerful. And the tongue.
** Even Sylphiel gets her chance to shine in episode 25 of the first season, [[spoiler:when she revives a nearly dead Lina by herself]].
** 11 Nagas storming a castle in the first OVA. That is all.
** How has the climax of NEXT not been mentioned yet? Lina has been spending the entire season doing everything she can ''not'' to use the Giga Slave after finding out that making a single, tiny mistake in the casting of it would destroy the universe, so naturally Hellmaster Fibrizzo has been spending the entire season trying to force her to use the Giga Slave so that he can make it go out of control. At this point, he's easily withstood two simultaneous Dragon Slaves, one of which was amplified, and Lina's second strongest spell, the Ragna Blade. When Fibrizzo is about to kill Gourry right before her eyes, however, Lina finally cracks and uses the Giga Slave... and her wish to save Gourry winds up being so strong and pure that it amplifies the spell to the point of actually summoning the Lord of Nightmares ''into Lina's body'' instead of just calling on her power. The Lord Of Nightmares proceeds to mop the floor with Fibrizzo with pretty much zero effort. After finding out that Lina has been absorbed into the chaos that makes up the Lord of Nightmares, Gourry chases her ''into another dimension'', giving up the Sword of Light and pleading for Lina to come back to him, and just when it looks like she's gone for good the Lord of Nightmares recreates Lina right in Gourry's arms, and the two of them share their first kiss. They both return to reality holding each other and with no memory of what happened.
* ''F-Zero Falcon Densetsu'': The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFtw7qW7Vcw Falcon PUUUUNNNNNNCH!]] scene from the final episode.
* In ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'', and in what might be one of the best animated fighting scenes ''ever'', AnimeChineseGirl Chun Li is unarmed, [[FanService nearly naked]], and alone in her apartment. She doesn't realize that she's being stalked by a noticeably steroidal, seven foot tall, bladed, Vega... whats worse, he's in full-on [[AxCrazy batshit insane mode]]. He fully intends on gleefully skining her alive, and killing her, in that order. Guile is on his way, but even he knows he's not going to make it in time. Seemingly over-matched Chun Li manages to defeat Vega through her superior martial arts skills, quick-thinking, and manipulation of his weaknesses (pretty boy has a thing about his face). Even after sustaining multiple serious injuries, and starting to weaken due to blood loss [[PluckyGirl she refuses to give in to the pain and keeps fighting]]. Oh yeah and [[spoiler: She lifts her frickin' ''COUCH'' over her head and hits him in the face with it!]] Watch the goodness [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEFxOSEdxjE&feature=PlayList&p=82482565AD527AB9&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=39 Here]].
* ''{{Mnemosyne}}'''s Rin probably had a lot of these along the way but her ''true'' moment of awesomeness happens when she confronts Apos for the final time in the last episode. [[spoiler:Having returned from the depths of Yggdrassil, she simply refuses to be affected by Apos' angelic presence (immortals like her are overcome with uncontrollable sexual desire when angels are around) but instead, grows ''her own wings'' and makes Apos shiver with paralyzing desire for her, easily kicking his butt. Not only is that scene an awesome turning of the tables but her wings look sooo much prettier than angels'. And that she is nude at that point and hot as ever, doesn't help ''any''.]]
** Am [[ShayGuy I]] the only one who's actually ''disturbed'' reading that? At best, such a tactic would strike me as a ShootTheDog moment. The last two sentences somehow make it creepier, like they're saying "beauty makes right."
** And let's not forget her BadassBookworm sidekick Mimi, who in the final episode [[spoiler:hacks into a KillSat to buy time for something to happen.]] Considering Mimi has hacked just about everything, and despite the fact that it was subverted to a point, it's the most badass thing she's ever done in the series.
* ''LoneWolfAndCub'' is largely a string of Moments of Awesome for the main character, Ogami Itto. Simply hearing his name is enough to make a grown man scream in terror. But the epic nature of the series leads up to one of the most Awesome endings ever printed. [[spoiler: His quest has led him to battle the Kurokuwa ninja many times throughout the series. By the time the final battle with his nemesis, Retsudo, rolls around, Itto has quite literally killed his way through '''every ninja in Japan.''' Most of them in the last couple of chapters.]] Also worth mentioning is the episode ''Will of the Fang'', where Itto is forced to fight Masatsune, one of his old sword students who never quite finished his studies. Now the local lord, Masatsune leads his whole army against Itto. After hacking his way through them all, Itto kills Masatsune in a SingleStrokeBat.
* Blossom gets one in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_V9nb49w34 battle with Him]] on ''DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ'': Most of the villains the girls fight are [[HarmlessVillain harmless]], funny, and at worst annoying, but not this guy -- he steals the girls weapons and uses them against them until they're beaten and bruised and two of them are unconscious. The exhausted leader makes a DivingSave just in time and then somehow musters the HeroicResolve to get their weapons back using her Ribbon Boomerang (a move she obviously borrowed from Franchise/SailorMoon). Then her teammates power up her KillerYoyo so the FieryRedhead can deliver the FinishingMove. As they said on [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls the original]], that was awesome, Blossom!
** Actually more a combination of both Franchise/SailorMoon and the original as the original Blossom used her ribbon as weapon once as well, although it was more of a bomb than a boomerang. Anyway, this scene comes off much more awesome when you realize that Momoko/Blossom, despite being the leader and advertised as the main character, usually comes up short compared to her teammates. She's nowhere near as popular as Miyako and Kaoru both in real life and as a Powerpuff (So much so that the other two have action figures of themselves made and she doesn't) and acts as the ButtMonkey of the team in many episodes. Many fans, in fact, originally doubted her ability as a leader. Any doubts about that were quickly erased the minute Blossom tossed her ribbon.
** In Episode 51, Him messes with Dynamo Z's time traveling mechanism, which sends the girls to, of all places, ''Townsville'', where we [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bskuJlQbb5o see the ''original PowerpuffGirls'']] fighting the monster from ''Uh Oh...Dynamo''! It was brief, the [=PPGs=] and the [=PPGZs=] didn't interact with each other, and the fans knew that the series was planning a lot of references to the original Powerpuff Girls thanks to the opening, but the minute the original girls appeared, fans ''shat their pants''!
* ''Anime/ChromeShelledRegios'': At the end of one episode, the white-haired girl, who seemed soft and innocent at first, kicks a guy in the leg, ''and breaks his leg bones in the process'' (we even see an X-ray shot of the bones shattering). If that's not awesome, then we don't know what is. Both of these were amplified greatly by the [[AwesomeMusic epic music that accompanied the events]].
* The end of Episode 3 of Corpse Party Tortured Souls has Yoshiki Kishinuma filling the role of pure awesome. Just when you think [[spoiler: he's run away from the haunted school and left the others to fend for themselves...he suddenly appears, knocks the crazed Kizami's head off with a pipe and then proceeds to fight Yoshikazu, an unstoppable zombie giant of a man, without a weapon. He is killed...but only because he sacrifices himself to try and save his friends, including the girl he loves.]] In short, Kishinuma is the man.
* Hyperdimension Neptunia gets plenty of these, though most are when it turns into an action show.
** Nepgear seems to get these more often, first is when she leads the other CPU Little Sisters into battle to save Neptune and the others, which then becomes amplified when [[spoiler: she transforms into the HDD form and starts wiping out the peon enemies and flies right for Arfoire.]] She gets another during Episode 10 when [[spoiler: she faces off against Yellow Heart by herself. Keep in mind that Yellow Heart trounced all of the CPUs, even Iris Heart, in the previous episode. Nepgear holds her own for a large portion of the episode and even manages a few good hits before Neptune appears to help.]] Finally she gets even more in the final two episodes when [[spoiler: she nearly sacrifices herself to protect all of the citizens of Planeptune and then gets a group one with the other little sisters when they perform their ultimate attack on Rei.]] In short, even though she's the Butt Monkey sometimes, Nepgear can be a badass when she needs to.
** Uni gets hers during the fight with Arfoire when [[spoiler: she starts blasting Arfoire despite not being able to transform into HDD mode. It then gets even more awesome when she transforms during this attack and doesn't even seem to notice or care, all she wants to do is save Noire and take out Arfoire.]]

The highly stylized nature of {{anime}} (or {{manga}}) allows room for really cool things to happen. Here are some of the more memorable of those scenes.

Remember...the ''spoiler tag'' is your friend. If saying too much would ruin the surprise, '''leave it in spoilers'''.

Also see the Awesome/MechaAnime page, because Giant Robots are a whole other level of awesomeness.

[[AC:Other]]



* If anyone ever has to know why people are willing to pay millions of yen to Dr. Black Jack just for the privilege of having him slice you open, here is why: The man once successfully operated on his ''own intestines while lying in the middle of the Austrailian outback and surrounded by rabid dingos.'' Hol-Ay ''[[{{HSQ}} Shit]]!''
* ''[[UchuuSenkanYamato Space Battleship Yamato]]'' has a Moment of Awesome in the second movie, ''Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato'' not in a specific action, but by its pure inspiration. After watching the entire, built in the last 2 years, Earth Defense space navy get devastated on live TV, the alien Comet Empire demands Earth's surrender. Just before the surrender, the ''Yamato'' warps in between the Empire and Earth, and '''everyone on the planet''' says "It's ''Yamato!'' We still have the ''Yamato!'' We're gonna ''win!''". Keep in mind we're talking about a SINGLE SHIP apprearing as a reinforcement after an entire FLEET was almost effortlessly destroyed by the enemy.
** We would be remiss if we did not mention the Moment of Awesome in Final Yamato. The earth fleet has been wiped out and the planet Aquarius is on a direct collision course with our home. The only thing that stop this disaster is the power of the Wave Motion Gun, set to a wide angle dispersal. The Argo has been filled with a volatile explosive and gets underway to get into position to fire the gun and stop Aquarius - but the enemy fleet (with a vested interest in destroying Earth) moves to stop the Star Force. They cant fight back - the Wave Motion Gun is off line. They cant warp - there's not enough time. If the enemy engages the Argo, there's a good chance the ship will be destroyed before it ever reaches it's target! As the enemy fleet prepares to fire, suddenly the flag ship explodes as Desslok and the Gamalon Fleet (who haven't been seen all movie), come charging in for the rescue. The Star Force's one time mortal enemy does a complete Heel-Face turn and saves the day!
** Even the live-action movie has several ones including [[spoiler:Yuki doing a MisguidedMissile maneuver]] but the best one is at the very end, when Kodai is [[spoiler:flying the Yamato on a kamikaze run]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyncwLEcEzA a remastered version of a track quite familiar to all Yamato fans]] starts playing in the background as the Yamato is being shot to hell around him. It's a major TearJerker moment but ''damn'' if it isn't AWESOME.
* ''GashBell'' has Brago [[spoiler:wiping out the entire QuirkyMinibossSquad with one attack without taking a hit himself]]. There's also [[spoiler:[[http://www.mangareader.net/266-18522-10/zatch-bell/chapter-161.html the last thing he says to a defeated Zophise]]]], [[spoiler:smashing up a bulldozer with one bare-handed punch]]... ''everything Brago does'' fits on this page. This manga also contains [[TheRival Bari]], who rivals Brago for the position of "walking MomentOfAwesome". And of course there's [[spoiler:Patie and Byonko's]] HeroicSacrifice, and ''everything'' about Kiees/Keys...
** Brago gets another one when he [[spoiler:[[http://www.mangareader.net/266-34310-13/zatch-bell/chapter-310.html punches Clear in the face]] for two reasons. One the only other time Clear really got hit was when Ashuron impaled him and that nearly killed him. Two, about three seconds ago Clear was telling Brago he doesn't stand a chance like the last time they fought.]]
*** Almost everything [[BadassNormal Sherry]] does qualifies as well. Particularly the way she fought Zophise's mind controlled humans AND demons!
** FOLGORE earns one when [[spoiler: Kanchome begins abusing his power, wanting to crush Goomu with his new found Mind Rape powers. Folgore blocks a punch from a now Faudo level Kanchome, and talks down a now psycho demon.]] Chapter 300 has turned the simple pop star into pure awesome. Also, his badass normal status for being being every bit the Determinator as Kiyo and Sherry, and a bit of Made of Iron for never seeming to get more than cut up for all the attacks he takes for [[spoiler: and from]] Kanchome.
*** I also liked Folgore's Badass metaphor thing (not sure if there is a trope for that), that he used to convince Kanchome to stop (I'm paraphrasing but this is the main conversation the two have, minus the flashback).
-->'''Folgore:''' "Don't you understand Kanchome? A bird won't rest on a lion's fangs."
-->'''Kanchome:''' "then... what you said that night... but... but... I don't want to go back to my weak self!"
-->'''Folgore:''' "Kanchome... I forgot to tell you that night... but the hippo is strong... especially when it's protecting it's children... IT CAN EVEN DEFEAT A LION!!!"
** Won Lei is plenty awesome, but especially when [[spoiler: after being separated from the rest of the group by a nigh impenetrable wall, he gets the living crap utterly beat out of him by Unko Tin-tin, until his partner Lee Yen powers him up from the other side (while BLINDFOLDED) and he turns the tables by beating him to a point where Unko decides to self destruct in order to have the last laugh, with a blast powerful enough to destroy above mentioned impenetrable wall and kill everyone on the other side of it. Won Lei, whilst in the process of being sent back to the Demon World, resolves himself to protect those on the other side of the wall by STANDING BACK UP and {{HeroicSacrifice using himself and the awesome of his presence as a shield]}}. By the time the self destruction is over, all that's left of the wall is HIS SILHOUETTE, behind which Lee Yen and the others were hiding.]]
** The entire ending of the final fight; [[spoiler:from Danny appearing to save Gash when everything seems hopeless to just about every ally Gash has ever made (and then some) showing up in spirit form to launch a huge, several chapter assault on Clear is pretty much this + [[Heartwarming Moment]].
** Just about ''anytime'' that [[FinishingMove Baou Zakeruga]] is used.
* The doujin manga ''Nami S.O.S.'' is a Hentai parody of magical girl stories. It focuses on a team of super-powered heroines, but by far the most memorable character is the main girl's BadassNormal brother. In one issue, the girl he's hot for is attacked by a pair of winged tentacle demons and winds up being molested by the two of them in midair. The guy picks up a big pole from I-can't-remember-where and tries to ''pole vault'' over to her from the roof of a skyscraper. He falls short and looks to be about to fall to his death, but instead manages to ''grab some of the beast's dangling tentacles'' and pull him off her from the force of his own falling through the air. This leads to ''a bout of fisticuffs in free-fall'' that ends with the guy using the side of a nearby skyscraper to ''scrape the demon's skull apart''. Meanwhile, the girl polishes off the other beast and arrives just in time to pluck him out of the air and carry him to a safe landing. This being a hentai manga- well, let's just say it's good times for him next issue...
* Minoru finally [[BewareTheNiceOnes letting Akira know what he really thinks of her]] in ''Anime/LuckyStar''. Also the entirety of his ImageSong, "Koi No Minoru Densetsu."
** Also, the dance number in the final episode.
** And don't forget Akira finally letting her inner professional shine through for just a little bit when singing ''Misoji Misaki'' in the karaoke box.
** The ''InitialD'' parody. Especially with [[MusicOfAwesome "Gravity"]] playing in the background.
** [[HotBlooded Anime Tenchou]] is a walking MomentOfAwesome... even if he never gets Konata to buy something from him.
** And finally... Konata's elaborate plan for taking everything there is in Comiket.
*** And her [[TestosteronePoisoning Testosterone Poisoned]] fantasy of [[HumongousMecha giant mecha]] dentists with [[ThisIsADrill drills]].
** The moments that concern the songs are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wfdCE3Obcg very]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEIgbH3Rx58 much]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK5m9ygwy5w topped]] in the concert.
* Everything Kyuuzou does in ''SamuraiSeven''. Also, episode 21. Two Nobuseri have been betrayed by Ukyo, and call him on it. Calmly, he turns around and continues his croquet game...as the [[WaveMotionGun main cannons of his Imperial Capital airship]] blow the giant robots to pieces not five feet away from him.
* In one chapter of ''FrankenFran'', Fran ends up getting her throat viciously slit open by a hitman hired by her client. Rather than die like any other person understandably would, she sits back up, with her head hanging off the back of her neck, pulls out her tools and gargles '''[[CatchPhrase "BEGIN... OPER.. ATION"]]''' She then ''reattaches her own head'' with barely any repercussions aside from some uncoordinated eyes and lots and lots of blood.
* The middle of the Divine Design (Cards) Arc of ''GetBackers'' is arguably one big, long Moment for Juubei. The awesome is how he pulls off two BigDamnHeroes rescues, masters the training the main characters struggled through in half the time, catches up to them in a labyrinth, defeats his [[TheFourGods Four Gods]] analogue without any hint of the mystical training he just mastered, breaks his friend's brainwashing... Did I mention he was recently blinded? Dialogue like "By order of Makubex, Juubei Kakei has arrived!" and "Juubei Kakei, at your service. I have come to study at your feet," somehow adds to the cool factor. He gets his MomentOfHeartwarming when he assures former rival Toshiki that he needs him, and starts mixing the Awesome and Heartwarming once [[spoiler:Toshiki is killed. Only not]]. Ginji seems to acknowledge the whole affair as Juubei's Moment of Awesome and an attempt to conquer past weaknesses, and it partially inspires him to want to get stronger himself.
* Near the end of ''TheThirdTheGirlWithTheBlueEye'', Bogie (an AI-controlled tank) takes on [[spoiler:an an anti-tank helicopter (also AI-controlled). He eventually takes it out by using a clever trick to ''leap into the air'' and shoot it [[strike:in the face]] at close range]].
** In the final episode, Honoka [[spoiler:wipes out an entire army with a single sword-stroke]].
* In ''[[{{Yotsubato}} Yotsuba&!]]'', CoolBigSis next door Asagi is the best person at managing Yotsuba, no easy task, and her moment is [[spoiler:"Say goodbye, little assassin."]] Awesome.
** Miura gets her moment of awesome as well, in the procession for a local shrine's [[FestivalEpisode festival]] -- so awesome, Yotsuba tries to imitate her.
** Yotsuba gets a moment in being [[CheerfulChild so freaking cute]] that the denizens of [[ImageBoards 4chan]] -- easily the most infamous and [[{{Squick}} squick-filled]] place on the internet -- will [[InternetBacklash flame anyone into eternity]] for posting {{Rule 34}} of her, something not even her predecessor [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Chiyo-chan]] (see CheerfulChild) could pull off.
* In ''{{Nana}}'', Yasu decking one of the {{Paparazzi}}.
* Archer's "Unlimited Blade Works" from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and the incredibly badass "Steel is my body and fire is my blood..." speech during the battle against Berserker that leads up to it. See also [[Awesome/VideoGames all the moments in the visual novel]].
* ''MegaManNTWarrior'': Rock and Fireman are trapped in a giant cage of vines protected by pure evil. As the villain Plantman gloats, Fireman turns to Rockman and declares: "Rockman, trust what I say. There's nothing I can't burn... no, there's nothing ''we'' can't burn!" This leads to Rockman gaining the Soul Unison: Fire Soul and proceeding to launch a combination attack with Fireman that completely incinerates all of Plantman's defenses and the bastard himself.
** The 2 parter where [[strike:[[DragonBooster Kitt Wonn]]]] [[MegaManNTWarrior Roll.EXE]] knocks the stuffing out of [[strike:[[DragonBooster Phistus]]]] [[MegaManNTWarrior Mega Man.EXE]]
* In ''Anime/CorrectorYui's'' second season, the episode where [[SilkHidingSteel Haruna Kisaragi]] decides to re-take her Corrector Haruna mantle when poor Yui is turned into stone in the Net.Com/rendered comatose in the Real World has her not only using the ''four'' elemental suits ''perfectly'' in very rapid succession, but teaming up with Corrector Ai to rescue Yui and other victims. Simply AWESOME way to subvert your semi-{{Chickification}}, Haruna!
* ''PrettySammy'' has Misao, for the first time ever, transforming into Pixy Misa with the use of a baton, along with the magic words, "Pixy Mutation! Magical Recall!".
** On the top of that, she gives a speech to Rumiya to encourage herself:
->'''Misao''': I'll be fine. I won't try to hide my weakness or jealousy anymore. I know I'm full of contradictions. But all things considered, I love myself and Misa. So I think I'll be fine. Please, Rumiya.
* Deedlit in ''RecordOfLodossWar'': ''Chronicles of the Heroic Knight''. With a bit of assistance from Parn and Ashram, [[spoiler:she all but drowned the huge dragon Shooting Star in a pool of lava with her shamanistic magic]]. This all but took the [[FauxActionGirl "faux"]] off of "faux [[ActionGirl action girl]]".
* May Wong in ''KaleidoStar''. Two words. "DEEEEEEMONIC SPIRAAAAAAAAAL!"
* ''{{Moetan}}'' episode 10. The whole of it. Ink and Sumi suiting up despite knowing this may be the last time they get to do the magic thing. Arks and Karks going human form and blasting the hell out of everything. BadassLongcoat Dandy being revealed as the KingIncognito. And then it all ends with Arks realizing that Alice's magical partner is...well, a loli, and promptly suffers a MegatonPunch. Also, there are ''Gundam'' references. It's a {{shounen}} finale amped up to 11. A perfect blend of absurdity, fanservice and awesome.
* The moment of awesome for Tamura Reiko in ''Parasyte'' had to be when she ran past a city of clueless onlookers, cackling maniacally, while ''missing the upper half of her head''.
** Even more awesome is what the upper half of her head is doing at this time. Namely, beating the shit out of two other parasites hunting her down. This is pretty much the [[BizarreAlienBiology Bizarre Alien Equivalent]] of kicking ass [[WithMyHandsTied with your arms chopped off]].
* An awesome ''and'' funny moment from the first season of ''{{Slayers}}'': After Zolf tries to attack Lina and Gourry by surprise, the two heroes make short work of his trolls by turning their healing powers against them with pebbles and a magic spell, causing them to disappear into nothingness. Right afterward, Lina prepares a spell to use against Zolf, sending him screaming and running away from the inn...from a harmless ball of light. The best mages learn to master the simple spells as well as the city-destroying ones ("[[SphereOfDestruction DRAGON SLAVE]]!").
** Another first season example: While fighting some mooks, Gourry swings his sword at one and misses, embedding the blade into a tree trunk. Rather than pulling the blade out to attack the mook creeping up behind him, Gourry simply pushes the blade right through the tree and cuts the mook in half, all in one motion, proving just how brutally strong this mostly normal human is in a world full of monsters and magic.
*** Of course, the very first time he uses the Sword of Light is one by default.
** During the second half of Slayers Revolution episode 8, Xellos reminds us just how powerful he is.
*** ''Slayers Evolution-R'': Xellos [[spoiler:destroys the Assassin Zuuma in mere seconds, who gave Lina and co. such a hard time throughout the season. To be fair he was caught off guard.]]
** Also, in Evolution-R episode 12 there's a very short but amazingly epic battle. The reason for this is both opponents being incredibly powerful. And the tongue.
** Even Sylphiel gets her chance to shine in episode 25 of the first season, [[spoiler:when she revives a nearly dead Lina by herself]].
** 11 Nagas storming a castle in the first OVA. That is all.
** How has the climax of NEXT not been mentioned yet? Lina has been spending the entire season doing everything she can ''not'' to use the Giga Slave after finding out that making a single, tiny mistake in the casting of it would destroy the universe, so naturally Hellmaster Fibrizzo has been spending the entire season trying to force her to use the Giga Slave so that he can make it go out of control. At this point, he's easily withstood two simultaneous Dragon Slaves, one of which was amplified, and Lina's second strongest spell, the Ragna Blade. When Fibrizzo is about to kill Gourry right before her eyes, however, Lina finally cracks and uses the Giga Slave... and her wish to save Gourry winds up being so strong and pure that it amplifies the spell to the point of actually summoning the Lord of Nightmares ''into Lina's body'' instead of just calling on her power. The Lord Of Nightmares proceeds to mop the floor with Fibrizzo with pretty much zero effort. After finding out that Lina has been absorbed into the chaos that makes up the Lord of Nightmares, Gourry chases her ''into another dimension'', giving up the Sword of Light and pleading for Lina to come back to him, and just when it looks like she's gone for good the Lord of Nightmares recreates Lina right in Gourry's arms, and the two of them share their first kiss. They both return to reality holding each other and with no memory of what happened.
* ''F-Zero Falcon Densetsu'': The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFtw7qW7Vcw Falcon PUUUUNNNNNNCH!]] scene from the final episode.
* In ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'', and in what might be one of the best animated fighting scenes ''ever'', AnimeChineseGirl Chun Li is unarmed, [[FanService nearly naked]], and alone in her apartment. She doesn't realize that she's being stalked by a noticeably steroidal, seven foot tall, bladed, Vega... whats worse, he's in full-on [[AxCrazy batshit insane mode]]. He fully intends on gleefully skining her alive, and killing her, in that order. Guile is on his way, but even he knows he's not going to make it in time. Seemingly over-matched Chun Li manages to defeat Vega through her superior martial arts skills, quick-thinking, and manipulation of his weaknesses (pretty boy has a thing about his face). Even after sustaining multiple serious injuries, and starting to weaken due to blood loss [[PluckyGirl she refuses to give in to the pain and keeps fighting]]. Oh yeah and [[spoiler: She lifts her frickin' ''COUCH'' over her head and hits him in the face with it!]] Watch the goodness [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEFxOSEdxjE&feature=PlayList&p=82482565AD527AB9&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=39 Here]].
* ''{{Mnemosyne}}'''s Rin probably had a lot of these along the way but her ''true'' moment of awesomeness happens when she confronts Apos for the final time in the last episode. [[spoiler:Having returned from the depths of Yggdrassil, she simply refuses to be affected by Apos' angelic presence (immortals like her are overcome with uncontrollable sexual desire when angels are around) but instead, grows ''her own wings'' and makes Apos shiver with paralyzing desire for her, easily kicking his butt. Not only is that scene an awesome turning of the tables but her wings look sooo much prettier than angels'. And that she is nude at that point and hot as ever, doesn't help ''any''.]]
** Am [[ShayGuy I]] the only one who's actually ''disturbed'' reading that? At best, such a tactic would strike me as a ShootTheDog moment. The last two sentences somehow make it creepier, like they're saying "beauty makes right."
** And let's not forget her BadassBookworm sidekick Mimi, who in the final episode [[spoiler:hacks into a KillSat to buy time for something to happen.]] Considering Mimi has hacked just about everything, and despite the fact that it was subverted to a point, it's the most badass thing she's ever done in the series.
* ''LoneWolfAndCub'' is largely a string of Moments of Awesome for the main character, Ogami Itto. Simply hearing his name is enough to make a grown man scream in terror. But the epic nature of the series leads up to one of the most Awesome endings ever printed. [[spoiler: His quest has led him to battle the Kurokuwa ninja many times throughout the series. By the time the final battle with his nemesis, Retsudo, rolls around, Itto has quite literally killed his way through '''every ninja in Japan.''' Most of them in the last couple of chapters.]] Also worth mentioning is the episode ''Will of the Fang'', where Itto is forced to fight Masatsune, one of his old sword students who never quite finished his studies. Now the local lord, Masatsune leads his whole army against Itto. After hacking his way through them all, Itto kills Masatsune in a SingleStrokeBat.
* Blossom gets one in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_V9nb49w34 battle with Him]] on ''DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ'': Most of the villains the girls fight are [[HarmlessVillain harmless]], funny, and at worst annoying, but not this guy -- he steals the girls weapons and uses them against them until they're beaten and bruised and two of them are unconscious. The exhausted leader makes a DivingSave just in time and then somehow musters the HeroicResolve to get their weapons back using her Ribbon Boomerang (a move she obviously borrowed from Franchise/SailorMoon). Then her teammates power up her KillerYoyo so the FieryRedhead can deliver the FinishingMove. As they said on [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls the original]], that was awesome, Blossom!
** Actually more a combination of both Franchise/SailorMoon and the original as the original Blossom used her ribbon as weapon once as well, although it was more of a bomb than a boomerang. Anyway, this scene comes off much more awesome when you realize that Momoko/Blossom, despite being the leader and advertised as the main character, usually comes up short compared to her teammates. She's nowhere near as popular as Miyako and Kaoru both in real life and as a Powerpuff (So much so that the other two have action figures of themselves made and she doesn't) and acts as the ButtMonkey of the team in many episodes. Many fans, in fact, originally doubted her ability as a leader. Any doubts about that were quickly erased the minute Blossom tossed her ribbon.
** In Episode 51, Him messes with Dynamo Z's time traveling mechanism, which sends the girls to, of all places, ''Townsville'', where we [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bskuJlQbb5o see the ''original PowerpuffGirls'']] fighting the monster from ''Uh Oh...Dynamo''! It was brief, the [=PPGs=] and the [=PPGZs=] didn't interact with each other, and the fans knew that the series was planning a lot of references to the original Powerpuff Girls thanks to the opening, but the minute the original girls appeared, fans ''shat their pants''!
* ''Anime/ChromeShelledRegios'': At the end of one episode, the white-haired girl, who seemed soft and innocent at first, kicks a guy in the leg, ''and breaks his leg bones in the process'' (we even see an X-ray shot of the bones shattering). If that's not awesome, then we don't know what is. Both of these were amplified greatly by the [[AwesomeMusic epic music that accompanied the events]].
* The end of Episode 3 of Corpse Party Tortured Souls has Yoshiki Kishinuma filling the role of pure awesome. Just when you think [[spoiler: he's run away from the haunted school and left the others to fend for themselves...he suddenly appears, knocks the crazed Kizami's head off with a pipe and then proceeds to fight Yoshikazu, an unstoppable zombie giant of a man, without a weapon. He is killed...but only because he sacrifices himself to try and save his friends, including the girl he loves.]] In short, Kishinuma is the man.
* Hyperdimension Neptunia gets plenty of these, though most are when it turns into an action show.
** Nepgear seems to get these more often, first is when she leads the other CPU Little Sisters into battle to save Neptune and the others, which then becomes amplified when [[spoiler: she transforms into the HDD form and starts wiping out the peon enemies and flies right for Arfoire.]] She gets another during Episode 10 when [[spoiler: she faces off against Yellow Heart by herself. Keep in mind that Yellow Heart trounced all of the CPUs, even Iris Heart, in the previous episode. Nepgear holds her own for a large portion of the episode and even manages a few good hits before Neptune appears to help.]] Finally she gets even more in the final two episodes when [[spoiler: she nearly sacrifices herself to protect all of the citizens of Planeptune and then gets a group one with the other little sisters when they perform their ultimate attack on Rei.]] In short, even though she's the Butt Monkey sometimes, Nepgear can be a badass when she needs to.
** Uni gets hers during the fight with Arfoire when [[spoiler: she starts blasting Arfoire despite not being able to transform into HDD mode. It then gets even more awesome when she transforms during this attack and doesn't even seem to notice or care, all she wants to do is save Noire and take out Arfoire.]]
