* Torm, a minor and obscure deity at the time, sacrificing himself to destroy [[BigBad Bane]] in the city of Tantras. This event was so awesome that the Ao, the overgod, resurrected him personally for remaining loyal to his portfolio.

* Most of RA Salvatore's attempts at a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for his characters come off seeming a little cheesy, but most of them still get at least really good one.

* [[RealNameAsAnAlias Lhaeo]]. It's hard to tell what Khelben expected from him [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive proclaiming]] that now he's called, it's time for the RightfulKingReturns as opposed to "hiding behind the beard of the Old Goat". But apparently did ''not'' expected to see all his [[GuileHero chronic]] [[KnightTemplar vices]] briefly summed up, washed in vitriol and handed to him. Including the fact that he, obviously, ''stolen'' the Royal Regalia he so grandly offered to the would-be king. Lhaeo obviously knew exactly who and what Blackstaff is and still ''flattened'' a semidivine being playing the hand of destiny. AwesomeMomentOfCrowning can wait, but CrowningMomentOfAwesome should never be missed (he got both). Khelben later even apologized for the "theft" in writing... hiding behind "Mystra's grace", of course. With "Your Majesty" and all.

*** ThisTroper's favorite moment, although not sure whether it was a CMOF or a CMOA was when Jarlaxle was submitted to a "Detect Magic" by a halfling...yeah

** YourMileageMayVary. Lhaeo had originally been willing to entirely skive off the job until Khelben arrived to shame him into it, even Sylune agreed that it was the opportune strategic time to try for a reconquista of Tethyr (when before it would not have been feasible), and returning aleady-stolen property to its rightful owner is ''not'' theft. But Khelben's role ''is'' to be the ButtMonkey in any plot involving Elminster (just take a gander at ''The Fall of Myth Drannor'' for a hilarious example), so, not surprising it happened.

** Nanfoodle the gnome alchemist managed to cause what might be the largest controlled explosion in the Realms. ''Without using any magic.'' Even Elminster's absolute best fireball, considered the largest to that point, could not compare. It completely annihilated a mountain ridge and the shock wave knocked over two armies. He used natural gas to cause the explosion, in case you were wondering.

** Cadderly, a young cleric of Denir, spends most of the first two books of the Cleric's Quintet doing no magic whatsoever. His god, Deneir appreciates people who think and not those that blindly praise him. Finally an ally with a trident in his belly saves Cadderly and the prince from Death. Cadderly had to hold in his friend's guts to keep them from spilling out as he yelled at Deneir in rage, then his fingers were pushed away by the mending skin.
