** When Goku first meets Kami, it's ''because Kami took a liking to him'': Mr. Popo was still undefeated, and remained so for ''months'' before Goku earns the right to enter the main temple.

* Mr. Popo's debut serves to hammer down that, no matter how strong Goku had got to that point (that is, right after killing King Piccolo), [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter there was always someone stronger]], and he's ''really'' effective at it as he has Goku fight him for the right to see Kami:
** When Goku first attacks, Popo has some birds standing on him. Popo casually counters him without disturbing the birds.
** After a while, Goku finally realizes what kind of opponent he's facing and uses the Kamehameha. Popo ''eats it''.
** Goku decides to train, following Popo's suggestions, before trying to defeat him again. At one point Popo gives him a practice bout to show what he means with "calmer than the sky, faster than lightning", and wears a cat bell. Popo once again tosses Goku around with ease-and is so calm that ''the bell doesn't ring'', even when he did a back somersault.
*** This gives Muten his own awesome moment, as Goku remembers him doing something very similar once: a complex martial arts kata with a jar filled with water resting on his head without spilling a single drop of water. Neither Goku nor Krillin were able to match it when they tried.

** Beating down Goku in his old, out of shape state. [[LetsGetDangerous From the minute]] [[TheCoatsAreOff he took off his cloak]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to the minute Goku's heart stopped beating.]] Goku assumed that his fight would be no different than before, especially due to an early advantage, even knocking down the demon king, which he was praisedfor. And the he was proven to be very, '''''very''''' wrong.

** And following that, during Gohan's BeamOWar with Cell, the other Z Fighters leap in and try to distract Cell. Vegeta stays behind. The other warriors are overwhelmed, and it looks like Cell's about to win... then a blast out of nowhere hits Cell from behind. Cue shot to Vegeta, hovering in midair, palm outstretched. That one action gave Gohan the opportunity he needed to overwhelm Cell.

** And following that, during Gohan's BeamOWar with Cell, the other Z Fighters leap in and try to distract Cell. Vegeta stays behind. The other warriors are overwhelmed, and it looks like Cell's about to win... then his theme kicks in as a blast out of nowhere hits Cell from behind. Cue shot to Vegeta, hovering in midair, palm outstretched. That one action gave Gohan the opportunity he needed to overwhelm Cell.


Added DiffLines:

** Made even better by Gohan's and Goku's utterly nonchalant expressions while Supreme Kai is tensed as hell. They knew from beginning to end exactly how the fight was going to end - when Vegeta decides to end it.

* Let's talk about his fight with Pui Pui. Conditions arise where he and Vegeta were transferred to Pui Pui's home world (briefly as it was), where he feels the planet's higher gravity -- ten times that of Earth's -- will incapacitate Vegeta. Vegeta, who had spent the entire length of the time skip -- ''7 years'' -- training in progressively stronger gravity simply remarks, "Perhaps if your planet had five ''hundred'' times gravity, you'd have a slight advantage. But ten? I don't even feel it!" He then hops around in a boxing stance before annihilating Pui Pui.

** In the Cell Games, Super Saiyan 2 Gohan. He embarrasses Cell by copying his fighting style and matching him move for move. Preceding that he effortlessly destroys the Cell Juniors. He's the reason Krillin got Android 18 back.
*** Embarrasses? By the time the final clash comes about, Cell is ''afraid'' of Gohan. His attacks become less provocation and more desperation.

He just hits them once or twice and they explode into smoke.

** While were on the subject of Awesome King Kai moments how can we forget the wishes he made near the end of the Freiza Saga? In what may be one of the riskiest BatmanGambits in the series King Kai asks Kami to resurrect everyone whose been killed by Frieza and his cohorts. Why? In order to bring back the Grand Elder whose live had been indirectly shortened by Frieza's rampage. [[note]] He was naturally dying from old age but he died slightly sooner due to the sadness he felt over the death of his people.[[/note]] Then, once everyone is brought back, use the Namekian Dragon Balls to transport everyone on Namek except for Frieza and Goku, to planet Earth safely out of harms way. While this is an impressive use of LoopholeAbuse on his part what makes this moment truly awesome is that there was no way of knowing that the Earths wish would have brought back the Grand Elder, it could have been just as likely that everyone else was brought back only to die again when Namek exploded. However it worked out and King Kai's crafty wish saved a lot of lives. There's a reason this man is the [[BigGood Kai of that squadron of space]].

* Mr.Satan holding his ground against ''Vegeta'' by saying that he will absolutely not allow the people of Earth to give every last bit of their energy if it meant their lives are lost in the process. Again, he stood up to ''Vegeta'', a Saiyan with far less moral restraint than Son Goku.
