* At about the end of the third hour into ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesCrystalBearers'', "Goldenrod", the Yuke that Layle's been pursuing since the start of the game, decides that she's given Layle enough warnings to keep his nose out of her business and tells him that she'll demonstrate her true power: ''[[SummonMagic Summoning]]''. She promptly creates a summoning gate that releases, of all Summons, the dragon god-king himself, ''Bahamut''. Not one to be outdone, Layle has a boss fight with the dragon who is traditionally the most powerful summon ever. However, when telekinetically launching rusty swords through his armor does little more than anger Bahamut into destroying the arena, he needs to find a new tactic. So what does Layle do to harm Bahamut? He performs a horizontal ColossusClimb on Bahamut while he's in mid-flight, grabs Bahamut's tail (which is a gigantic ''spear'' in this incarnation), and ''[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice skewers Bahamut through the heart WITH HIS OWN TAIL]]!''

[[AC:VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2]]
* In one particular quest in ''Final Fantasy Tactics A2'', you have to shut down a swindler who sold bogus hammers for 20k gil, and Ezel (who you should know from Tactics Advance) shows up to give you the card that was meant for your mark - after bragging that it's worth 80k gil. So what does the card do? It's [[NighInvulnerability God Mode]] for your Judge - [[spoiler:as Illua has the misfortune of finding out before the penultimate showdown at Delgantua, when her spell to banish your Judge is beaten off by Ezel's card like money was owed.]] Best 80k gil I never spent. Thanks, Ezel!
* The chain of sidequests with Bowen, who seeks to destroy a giant Cocaktrice that [[spoiler: murdered his wife many years ago]]. You fight the bird several times with Bowen (hume Fighter), his Illusionist, and his Raptor. Each time you seemingly KO the bird, it flees. When you fight it for the last time, you arrive to find Bowen trying to fight it alone in a blind rage. When the battle begins, Bowen's allies arrive on the scene and a [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome different battle music plays, which is the same one used in boss battles from Final Fantasy XII]]. The music is only the icing on the cake. When the boss' HP drops down to a certain amount, it tries to flee again, but your clan uses an item to keep it rooted to the ground so you can finish it off for good. After the fight is over, a touching scene plays out afterward and Bowen can finally rest, knowing his quest for revenge is over.

*E3 2015, Sony's press conference, they showed a new game called World of Final Fantasy, nothing too exciting......until the background suddenly turns dark with flowing green lines and at that moment, you know where this is going: a FinalFantasyVII HD remake.

** For my money, it wasn't. He always dies before he gets the chance to do anything, or he just punches someone.

** That's not just "kicking some ass", Cloud uses [[spoiler:the (regular) Omnislash against Sephiroth, ''who blocks every blow''. And then, with Cloud skewered, he remarks "Is this the pain you felt before, Cloud? Let me remind you. This time you won't forget." and grows the titular [[OneWingedAngel single wing]].]] Now I'm a man, but when that last bit happened, I swear [[{{Squee}} I screamed like a fangirl]].

* Despite the epic storylines in the game, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' somewhat spoils the moment by you remembering that most of the missions you complete have really been done with other people. Then ''Wings of the Goddess'' comes out, and we're suddenly doing all sorts of kick-ass things from pulling a BigDamnHeroes moment for a not-exactly street-smart genius kid Tarutaru, to stopping ''one half of an invading army force attacking Windurst.'' And this can all be done by yourself in the literal sense, without other [=PCs=].

* [[spoiler:Delita Heiral's]] masterful outmaneuvering of every other group's plotting in ''FinalFantasyTactics'', in what has to been some of the [[GambitRoulette most complex gambitry]] and most intense [[TheChessmaster chessmaster-on-chessmaster]] action seen in a videogame up to that time, is so [[MagnificentBastard magnificent]] that one can't help be impressed. Even if he ''was'' a huge dick who would manipulate his closest friend and the woman he loved in the pursuit of power, he was far better than the [[EvilChancellor other parties]] [[CorruptChurch making]] [[DemonicInvaders power grabs.]]
