*How about L (who we know has a bad spine at least in the film ) JUMPING onto a plane to rescue Maki from ecoterrorists with a bag of cures to the disease they let loose on his back ?!"

** His entire speech to Light after Light kills Lind L. Tailor. Now, ''that'' is how you [[EstablishingCharacterMoment introduce a character]].
-->'''L:''' But I assure you, L ''is'' real. I ''do'' exist. Now... try to kill me!

** Even better: Light decides to [[spoiler: call Misa on her other phone, only for L to tell him he's taken Misa into ''custody because he suspects her as the second Kira'']]. Cue Light having a freak out and the audience grinning even more.

** To add to this, not only was L's deduction of pinpointing Kira's location in Kanto awesome, but as soon as he began to pace together several clues from Light's pattern, he ''flat out already pin points Light as Kira''. While you could say that still doesn't fit since L constantly needed to find ways to prove that Light was Kira, he '''continues''' throughout the show [[spoiler: before his death]] saying Light is Kira. Considering how [[spoiler: the manga and anime end with Light exposed and later on shot repeatedly by Matsuda ''and'' [[TraumaCongaLine his last vision before death was seeing L in front of him]]]] makes it more satisfying.

* Then there's when [[spoiler:Mello]] had the Death Note loaded onto a frickin' ''missile'', or when he got the President of the United States to not only rat out the [[spoiler:SPK]], but actually start ''funding'' [[spoiler:Mello]]'s mafia group, by threatening to mind control the him into causing a nuclear apocalypse.

** Near missed out on the loyalty because the fanbase still hated him for [[spoiler:[[ReplacementScrappy replacing L]]]], but gets points by distracting a mob tearing his base apart by dropping millions of dollars outside.
** Which also counts as [[spoiler: a ''posthumous'' crowning moment for L - it was his money Near used.]]
** Alternately, being the one to [[spoiler:finally beat Light]]and then delivering a KirkSummation to him about how [[spoiler:Light is "just a murderer" and that his Death Note is "the deadliest weapon in the history of mankind]].
*** While ''squishing a finger puppet of him.'' There's no arguing that Near won, and he won ''hard.''
** "[[spoiler: Together, we are as able as L. Together, we can surpass L! And now... the Kira that L lost to... the Kira that L could never find concrete evidence against... we have cornered him.]]" As he says this you can practically see [[spoiler:the ghosts of L and Mello standing behind Near in his condemnation of Light]].
*** Seeing [[spoiler:Light's]] face during TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, [[spoiler:as everything he's worked for comes crashing down around his evil]], SmugSnake ears? Priceless.

* For Soichiro's personal Moment of Awesome, what about [[spoiler: his dying words? Seriously, even though he always tried to play Light's advocate in front of L, at the end, he revealed that even five years after [[spoiler:L's death]], he, as the only one in the team, always seriously considered the possibility that L was right and his own son is Kira.

** Basically everything that happens after Higuchi turns on the TV is magnificent. From his increasing fury and panic as he's desperately trying to find out Matsuda's real name, to the brilliant chase scene with its climax set to awesome music, followed by the task force finally finding out about the notebook and the Shinigami... probably the peak of awesomeness of the series.

* He gets another one for outdoing L during his MemoryGambit. First, he's the one who finds the data pointing to Yotsuba's guilt, which the Yotsuba members themselves thought was impossible. Then in a later episode, after watching the Yotsuba meeting, L is prepared to allow innocent people to die just to get evidence on them. Light then comes up with a brilliant bit of XanatosSpeedChess: He calls up Namikawa (having deduced he likely isn't the new Kira), flawlessly manipulates him into switching sides, and gets him to delay the killings long enough for the task force to get evidence. Even L acknowledges it as awesome. It really just hammers home that Light truly could have been a worthy partner for L if he just could have gotten over his god complex.

** Matsuda's infiltration of Yotsuba also counts. Just because he got caught doesn't mean it wasn't awesome. In fact, his fast thinking was really impressive. Really, any time he risks his life to help was awesome.
* Don't forget manga-Matsuda hijacking Light's computer and instructing Soichiro to tell Mello that ''he's'' the new L to protect Light and Sayu.
* Also the TV interview about Yotsuba!Kira took some nerve too.
* What about Matsuda pretty much being Soichiro's [[TheLancer Lancer]] during the raid on Mello's hideout? He pretty much owns the mafia thugs by shooting them in the kneecaps and then shooting the ''Death Note'' out of one's hand. He certainly TookALevelInBadass during those five years.

* The entirety of Mello's stint in the mafia arguably counts, but a strong contender is when he blew up his building to avoid capture - while he was still inside the building. But then again, Mello is pretty much made up of moments of awesome.

** Aizawa has another one earlier in the finale; after [[spoiler: Near has exposed Light as Kira]] and Light is [[BreakTheHaughty absolutely freaking out]], it's Aizawa who approaches him and basically tells him, "[[spoiler: It's over]]." Think about that: Aizawa has just found out that [[spoiler: Light is responsible for the greatest singlehanded homicide in history]], and Light is ''royally pissed'', and Aizawa ''still'' has the balls to step up and do something to calm him down. And it ''works'', at least until one of the SPK freaks him out again.
* Misa may be TheDitz, but she can be ''very'' sneaky. Not only does she one-up Kira by finding out his identity before he can find out hers, she one-ups both him and L later on by escaping from Mogi long enough to meet Yotsuba's Kira and confirm (making brilliant use of Rem) that he's the one with the Death Note. She then presents a ''tape'' of that conversation to the investigation team with well-earned pride.

** His countdown scene at the end of the anime. With both Near and Light's plans explained, everything is stake (for the characters and the viewer), and the powerful scene with the X-Kira standing like a referee between Light's team and the SPK, the series builds up a feeling of aniticipation worthy of ending the story.
