[[folder:Telltale Games]]
* Marty defeating Kid Tannen, a MOBSTER, in the past. Not only with getting him on Tax evasion via Trixie (Kid Tannen's girlfriend [[spoiler: and his grandma, Sylvia]]) and Officer Parker (in reality, Jennifer's grandpa), but was also able to save Edna from him and used the gun-lighter he stole from Alternate!Biff, resulting in the loss of the alcohol in Kid's organization and likely his entire enterprise. Lets remember that this is a teenager who did all this.
** Emmet helps out too, as it was his rocket car that was able to keep him from geting away thanks to the fact that it was kinda busted.
* In Episode 3, the moment Citizen Brown [[spoiler: realizes that the logo for the "new" Hill Valley is modeled after ''the flux capacitor''.]]
* In Episode 4, Marty is inspired to try and unbrainwash Jennifer by playing his guitar over the squawkbox, when a guard comes to escort her out and notices the music. When the guard inspects the camera, Jennifer beans him with her box of spray paints.
-->'''Jennifer:''' Nobody scrambles my brains, ya hear me?! No one! I'm Jennifer Parker - rock 'n roller!
* Marty rescuing Doc in Episode 4 also qualifies.
* Telltale got Michael J. Fox to voice a character for the finale. In fact, he voices [[spoiler:FOUR characters: Old Willie McFly, Artie's dad, and three older Alt!Martys!]]
* A slightly fridgey one in Episode 5. [[spoiler:Citizen Brown is disguised as the runner of the Enlightenment Under The Sea attraction, and has his younger self kidnapped and hidden in the bathysphere. Marty knows this, and is trying to thwart him. He tries to get onto the ride with a ticket, then invokes the authorities when Brown rejects it. After all that, Brown pretends the gears are jammed so he can't raise the bathysphere. So what does Marty do? He ''deliberately crimps the bathysphere's air hose'', cutting off young Emmett's air supply and putting his life-- and by extension his older self's life-- in jeopardy. He does this knowing full well that if Emmett dies, not only will he lose a lifelong friend, but he'll prevent the invention of the time machine in the first place (because its inventor won't be alive to invent it) and be forever stranded 55 years in the past. He's taking a '''MASSIVE''' chance, and he takes it without hesitation. Badass to say the very least. He probably realized that the only one who cares about Emmett more than he does is Emmett himself. A difficult, but logically sound, decision.]]
* When Young Emmett is showcasing his Electrokinetic Levitator at the expo, he rolls off the ramp, supposedly falling to the "spectacular failure" he mentioned in Episode 1... [[spoiler:until he flies back into the shot, soaring majestically around the room.]] Made even more awesome by the accompanying [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic triumphant version of the Back To The Future theme.]]
* Episode 5: William [=McFly=] saving Marty and Doc from a trigger-happy Edna.
** There is also the scene where Marty makes a trap to knock out the Western Tannen and a time-traveling Edna so that they can save Hill Valley from a future where it got burned to the ground.

* Marty's fight with Biff, and the chase scene afterwards. It ends with Marty avoiding getting crushed between a truck and Biff's '46 Ford by running up the hood, through the car seats, and off the trunk, with Biff and his gang getting buried in manure.
** And to cap it off, he gets back on his makeshift skateboard ''just'' as it comes back out from under the car. AWESOME.
** Not to mention that Marty was able to knock down Biff, who is [[PintSizedPowerhouse twice his size]], with one punch.

* Marty's fight with Biff, and the chase scene afterwards. afterwards.
** First, one of the finest executions of the LookBehindYou gambit in any film. After tripping Biff to prevent him from grabbing George and throwing him out of Lou's Cafe, Marty is grabbed and about to have his lights punched out when he nonchalantly points over Biff's shoulder and says, as cool as a cucumber, "Whoa, whoa, Biff... what's that?" And ''Biff falls for it.'' Marty is then able to knock down Biff, who is [[PintSizedPowerhouse twice his size]], with one punch.

* The gigantic guitar amplifier in Doc's workshop, which needs an ''ignition key'' to start and blows Marty across the room as soon as he strikes his first chord.



* The moment when it sinks in for Marty. He's gotten back to town, everything looks different. Then he hears something for the first time in his life, the clocktower ringing (which also perfectly punctuates the music).

* A small moment, but Marvin and the Starlighters sending Biff's gang running is pretty awesome. Match, Skinhead, and 3-D throw Marty in the trunk of Lorenzo's car, and when Lorenzo objects, they dismiss him as a "spook"... which causes all five Starlighers to exit the car, danger in Marvin's voice as he asks, [[OhCrap "Who you calling 'spook'?"]] The bullies panic and flee as Lorenzo snarls, "Go home to your mama, boy!" while taking a swipe at them as three Starlighters run after them.

* After Doc works so hard to connect the cables on the clock, the bottom cable suddenly pops free -- and there's only a minute to go. Doc despairs for a moment, then gets a determined look. He reconnects the bits he has, then ''[[ImprovisedZipline loops them around the hands of the clock and slides down]]'', retrieving the other end and connecting it ''just as the lightning bolt hits''. Awesome. Let's face it, there's a reason this scene is in all three films.
** VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The clock tower doesn't just get "hit" by lightning. It practically gets ''NUKED.''

* The scene with the Libyans is one of these for Doc. Chances are that Doc was fully aware he was going to die. He probably intended to give his assistant cover to run by letting the Libyans shoot at him. That takes guts.

* The scene with the Libyans is one of these for Doc. Chances are When he realizes that Doc was fully they're coming, his freaked-out reaction perfectly sells how aware he was going is that these guys are prepared to die. He probably intended to give murder someone. But his assistant cover response, rather than running away, is to run by draw their attention, letting them kill him so that his assistant[=/=]best friend will have a chance to escape. In one intense scene, it shows the Libyans shoot at him. That takes guts.viewers how courageous Doc is.

* Marty defeating Kid Tannen, a MOBSTER, in the past. Not only with getting him on Tax evasion via Trixie (Kid TAnnen's girlfriend [[spoiler: and his grandma, Slyvia]]) and Officer Parker (in reality, Jennifer's grandpa), but was also able to save Edna from him and used the gun-lighter he stole from Alternate!Biff, resulting in the loss of the alcohol in Kid's organization and likely his entire enterprise. Lets remember that this is a teenager who did all this.
