** If anything that's a CMOA for Hudson, because by asking a simple question, Hudson does what no other character had done up untill that point... he pushes one of Xanatos's buttons.

* Broadway has always been this troper's favorite Gargoyle, but his SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome occurs any time he sees someone use a gun after the episode where [[spoiler: he shoots Elisa, accidentally]].

* Although it probably was crossing the MoralEventHorizon for some, This Troper started to find Jackal from the Pack awesome when he became the avatar of Anubis in "Grief", aged Goliath, Angela and Elisa, destroyed Coyote, turned Wolf and Hyena into babies and destroyed an entire town. He gets a similar moment in the episode "The Green" where he fantasizes about shattering the Mayan gargoyles during the day and reshaping Goliath's stone face to look like his.

* This troper just rewatched the Creator/DisneyXD broadcast of "Possession", and ''hooo'' '''''boy''''', does it '''''ever''''' have a slew of CMOA's for characters, especially ones who normally don't receive one (I.E. ''[[spoiler:Lexington's rather epic {{plan}} at the end]]'', the fact that Xanatos's still-infant child finally TookALevelInBadass, to a ridiculous extreme, Coldstone's (as well as the other {{Cyborg}} gargoyle's alliances drawn permanently), and Puck going from chaotic to true neutral at the end, [[spoiler: actually helping the FiveManBand out for a change]] is rather epic.

* "Awakening, Part 2" - YMMV as always on if this goes into MundaneMadeAwesome, but the moment where the gargoyles awaken from their 1000-year sleep in Manhattan. As a [=YouTube=] comment put it; "most epic yawn ever."
** What's ''really'' awesome about it? This is a moment of awesome for Xanatos as well for his sheer audacity: after hearing the legend about the curse on the gargoyles and its escape clause, he bought up the castle with its gargoyles and had multiple helicopters transport everything up to his corporate skyscraper in New York stone by stone ''just to see if that would work''; and it did. [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney Screw you, "impossible"]] CurseEscapeClause, [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney Xanatos has money!]]
* Of course, Goliath himself has an awesome moment in the first story, "Awakening" when Demona has a rocket launcher pointed at him and ranting about how she betrayed the castle and her reasons for it. Even though the safe thing would be to placate the lunatic by agreeing with her, Goliath does not hesitate for a second to stand up to her and refute her hate with reason and moral authority with "There is good and evil in all of us, human and gargoyle alike. You should know that more than anyone!"
** Hold on. Forgot that he then turns around, and points out, for the first time, and not the last, that it was all Demona's fault.

*** His father deserves one for the same episode. After all that happens, he simply snarks, "Well riddle me this, Mister Big-Shot Time Traveller. How are we going to get home?" (Unsurprisingly, Xanatos has a plan for this.)

* Princess Catherine entering MamaBear mode, and fighting off the Archmagus' forces with a laser gun. Seriously, is this the same woman who used to be such a prejudiced spoiled brat toward gargoyles? I guess, like her friend the Magus, she TookALevelInBadass.
** As a Scottish noblewoman of the tenth century she had never seen, let alone handled, any kind of modern weaponry before the Archmage's minions attacked. And Demona is a heck of a StarterVillain. But:

* ''Everyone'' gets one in the battle with Oberon but my favorite is when Titania hints that it all might have been ThePlan on her part.

** This is a man who managed to get a whole [[XanatosGambit trope]] named after him, and the line that set him apart from all of the other villains (ComicBook/LexLuthor, DoctorDoom, etc) like him.

*** Second SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for the show; they could have gone the whole "Guns are bad and we should be terrified of them!" route...but they didn't. Instead they chose to have the lesson be "Guns are dangerous if you don't know how to use them and should only be used by people who know what they're doing."

** One of his definitive moments is in the second episode - where he travels to the UK, disassembles an entire castle, transports it across the ocean, and mounts it atop the biggest skyscraper in the world (so tall it ''reaches above the clouds''). Why? ''Because he's David Xanatos, and he freaking can.''
