* MLG Columbus 2013 held one of the best storylines that the scene has ever had and is still lovingly remembered by fans. Anyone who has not heard of the events is really missing out a lot of development.
**To sum things up, one of the teams, Speed Gaming International, nearly missed the tournament and forfeited their group stage slot after they were given non-priority flights. One of the members, Bone7, also suffered visa issues and could not play with the rest of the team, forcing the team to use the relatively unknown, Arteezy as a stand-in. With help from a manager of another team (Team Dignitas's manager, Charlie Yang), all members were barely able to make it, albeit drowsy and dazed due to poor and rushed traveling conditions. In honor of Bone7, the member that could not make it, all the team's member's ended their game id with the number seven.
**After the suffering a horrible Day 1 performance, where they lost all their games, the team rebounded with a resounding 4-0 streak against the rest of the group, slimly beating the group stages and making it to the playoffs. After defeating Sigma Gaming in a 2-0 sweep, the team prepared to face Team DK, arguably the best of the Chinese teams, filled with legendary veterans of the scene.
**Before the finals, Speed Gaming's manager, Marco Hernandez released a blog post that detailed that all the members's salaries had been cut, and that the team's organization was abusing its members. None of the five members where tilted by this information, and the team went on to win the finals, defeating DK in one of the biggest upsets of the scene.
**Even after the tournament, things did not stop. Soon after, Marco Hernandez's true nature was revealed as a power-abusing manager that threatened and bullied the players, and he was held responsible for many of the team's issues. Examples include lying to the players that their sponsor did not speak English, explicitly asking tournament organizers to drop the team from the tournament, misusing funds meant for the team, etc. Even when he wrote the article, his actions, by that point, were already notified to the team's sponsors by the team members, and he was already fired by the time the article was published.
**The team's stand-in, Arteezy, became one of the most highly sought-after players as the shuffle began. As a stand-in that no one had seen before, he proceeded to dominate and surpass many talented players who were in the same lane as him such as Dendi and Mushi. Many attribute MLG Columbus as the biggest turning point of his career.
**The rest of the team would rightfully depart from the Speed Gaming name, and they squad would go on to take the form of the original Cloud9 squad, one of the most infamous and career-defining squads of its time.

* Any time you get a [[TotalPartyKill Rampage]]. Admit it, the feeling of having so utterly trounced the other team is awesome.

* The special presentation in August 12 of [=TI6=] could qualify as this for Valve. The day prior, Underlord was announced during the all-stars match to be released in August 23 to much applause and hype, finally completing the hero roster and ensuring parity with the Warcraft 3 module. No way that Valve could top it, right? ''WRONG''. The next day, the host was told to inform everyone that there was going to be a special presentation after the last series (between Fnatic and DC) and encouraged viewers and attendants to stay for it, no details on what it is about. Many viewers thought that it was going to be the reveal of the arcana contest winner. Turns out, it was five minutes of a martial arts performance show with taiko drums, which itself was building up to the true nature of the special presentation. '''The announcement of Monkey King''', the first new hero in years! Needless to say, the crowd, the Dota 2 community and Twitch chat went crazy.

** The commentary has practically become memetic in its own right:
--> '''Synderen''': "[[TemptingFate I don't think EG are interested in contesting this 4 on 5, but maybe they can delay it long enough for it to be a 5 on 5 if they Ice Blast and Fissure correctly.]]"
--> '''[=TobiWan=]''': "They're all together, PPD - here comes the Ice Blast, ready for the '''[[SuddenlyShouting DUUUUNK! IN FROM UNIVERSE!]] ''[[ChewingTheScenery IT'S A DISASTER!]]''''' CDEC, they're gonna get wiped from the face of the earth apart from Agressif! He'll jump out, but the Wombo Combo perfectly hits from Evil Geniuses!"

* The final match of The International 5 between Evil Geniuses and CDEC Gaming. After a 2-0 sweep by the CDEC in the winners bracket finals, the two teams met again in a Grand Finals rematch. After falling behind 2-1 in the series, CDEC went for a Roshan kill at the 29 minute mark of game 4. Moments later, an Ice Blast struck the pit and Universe blinked in, dropping unquestionably the biggest Echo Slam of all time, nearly wiping the entirety of CDEC and sealing the victory for EG. [=TobiWan=] was rightfully [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ElXGllTpp0 losing his shit]] in the process. Needless to say, the moment went on to be known as "The Six Million Dollar Echo Slam".

* While there are fan videos of VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}, there's a certain animator named [[http://www.youtube.com/user/swordzzzzz Swordz]] who's known to make high quality Dota 2 custom videos. And his most recent project? ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvpHThakNwU When Heroes Meet Champions]]'', AKA VideoGame/{{Dota 2}} Heroes Versus VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends Champions! UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny at its finest! Highlights already include battles of Axe vs Darius, Juggernaut vs Master Yi, Legion Commander vs Katarina, Treant Protector vs Maokai, and topped with the clash of two MegatonPunch between Tusk and Vi. [[SincerityMode It's as awesome as it sounds.]]
** Unfortunately, Swordz ran into plenty of issues and [[http://pastebin.com/8s90bshW decided to quit the project.]]
** Beforehand, he's also made a spot-on reminiscing video of the memetic [[VideoGame/FZero "FALCON PUNCH!!"]] with Dota characters, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ykbVt1ZaJM featuring Brewmaster as Ryu Suzaku/Rick Wheeler, Doom as Black Shadow, and of course, Tusk as Captain Falcon]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0nIL10roaE This fun little video]]. The video shows off that Sven's team is losing and then ''everyone in his team left the game'', leaving Sven alone. So what does Sven do? [[{{Determinator}} Keep on fighting and become a]] OneManArmy. By the end of it, he holds off the rest of the five team as they futilely saw Sven pick them and their towers off one by one and won the game. The kicker? Sven did all those without a Black King Bar, even in the presence of some disablers like Tiny and Pudge.
