* Probably the biggest moment of awesome in the game is when Cid leaps off the airship [[RidingTheBomb riding what is apparently a nuclear bomb]], in order to close the entrance to the underworld. After kamikaze'ing himself and then falling hundreds of feet, ''[[UnexplainedRecovery he survives and walks himself to the dwarf kingdom to recover.]]'' Then, while recovering, when he hears about the obstacles you face with your shiny new airship, which can't cross lava and needs a drill to get back to the surface, he gets out of bed and still has the strength to apply the necessary upgrades! Truly a mark of {{Badass}}.

* Scarmiglone is introduced as a hunched, creepy little gremlin in a cloak, who dies pretty easily and goes toppling off a bridge when you beat him. So why would Golbez of all people be wasting his time with hi-[[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/finalfantasy/images/d/d0/Scarmiglione_final_form_ffiv_ios_boss_render.PNG/revision/latest?cb=20130504142535 OH]] [[NightmareFuel MY]] [[OneWingedAngel GOD.]] Cue a frantic clash with the first of the Four Fiends, to the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome epic backdrop]] of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKUiKA6vVu0 The Dreadful Fight]]

* One for Rydia's voice actress in the DS port. Her, "I hate youuuu!" in her introduction scene will send chills down your spine.

* A awesome villainous moment happens when the heroes confront the Fiend of Fire, Rubicante. He actually ''apologizes'' to HotBlooded {{Ninja}} Edge that his MadScientist assistant tortured Edge's parents and turned them into monsters sent to fight him. He then proceeds to [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen completely heal the party before fighting them]] because [[WorthyOpponent to do otherwise would be unfair]]. He gets another in his final defeat, where he praises Cecil and companions for successfully defeating him once more.

* Cecil's wasting of four of [[CurbstompBattle Baron's guards]] is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=fl49p9NQuf4#t=10s pretty freakin' awesome.]]

** And then we have [[spoiler:Rydia's return from what looked like her death]], all grown up and ready to [[BigDamnHeroes save the party's ass at a crucial moment]].
*** Not only that, [[spoiler:she shows up when Cecil is the only party member still standing, meaning that she's protecting him - just as he protected her from Baron's soldiers at the beginning of the game. [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments It just doesn't get any better than this.]]]]

*** Due to technical limitations, they fight you one at a time because having four bosses on the screen would be impossible even in the DS version. The spirit of the dialog clearly indicates that they're fighting together, even if the game doesn't show it.
*** The Four Fiends may fight one at a time, but you are given no chance to save or heal outside of battle until [[BossRush all four are defeated at once.]]
* This troper's favorite moment in the game was the assault on the Giant of Babil. The entire armies of the world, with every bit of technology and magic at their aid, assault the BigBad's ultimate weapon. So. Very. Awesome.

* Cecil's fight [[spoiler:with his own inner darkness]] to become a paladin turns him from a depressed, unsure knight into a confident, walking engine of physical destruction, ready to [[JusticeWillPrevail fight for his beliefs]] instead of letting himself be forced to do nasty things against his will. Incidentally, the easiest way to win that fight is awesomeness in itself: ''sit there and take the hits'', paying penance for what Cecil did as a Dark Knight.

** This troper's favorite moment in the game was the assault on the Giant of Bab-il. The entire armies of the world, with every bit of technology and magic at their aid, assault the BigBad's ultimate weapon. So. Much. Awesome.
** Edge, speaking to Rubicante in the Tower of Babil, especially in the DS version. As Rubicante gives a pitying speech about how mankind is a slave to their emotions and can never know true strength, Edge instantly slips into a UnstoppableRage and delivers an awesome line to Rubicante amid a swirling storm of lightning.

* After Cecil's inexplicable "StayInTheKitchen" abandonment of Rosa and Rydia on Earth before the final battle, they show up once he lands on the moon, having apparently been clinging to the outside of the Lunar Whale during its trip through space. Utterly ridiculous, but nobody cares.
** They weren't clinging to the outside, they were sitting in the entrance chute.

*** No they don't. [[MookChivalry They fight you one at a time]]
*** That's more due to technical limitations. Having four bosses on the screen would be impossible even in the DS version. The spirit of the dialog clearly indicates that they're fighting together, even if the game doesn't show it.
