** Their actions in ''Episode One'', where they [[spoiler:temporarily free Freeman from the G-Man]]: Up until that moment, the G-Man was a Main/SmugSnake with no apparent weaknesses, in constant control of the situation, and most of the cast didn't even know he existed. The expression on his face when he realizes he's lost control: priceless. "We'll see... about ''that''."

* During the first game, you find a large tilted elevator lift. After pushing the button for it and running to the elevator before it's too far down to jump on, it seems the coast is clear and that it's time to look at some cool scenery. At that moment, headcrabs jump down from the ceiling, but slip off the lift. Then more come down and do the same thing. And then more. And more. And more. For the entire duration of the ride, headcrabs jump down from the ceiling. If you're a good enough shot/have auto-aim on, you can kill the headcrabs as they slippy-slide their vagina-like bodies down. If not, you fight an army of headcrabs at the bottom. A CrowningMomentOfAwesome and a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
* The first time female black ops are introduced in Opposing Force is a large firefight in a storage room. You and your 2-4 squad mates fight ninjas. Everybody has guns, with an M249 added into the mix as well. Aw yeah.

* Okay, so, top of the frelling list here, folks: Father Grigori. Nothing you say can stand up to the fact that he's an [[Main/BadassPreacher Orthodox priest with a rifle]] and has a problem with [[ZombieApocalypse his flock.]]

If we think about this, Father Grigori managed to swim through the Ravenholm mines, climb over fences that Gordon can't climb over, and fight the infinite horde of headcrabs, all twice just to help any rebels that come by and to tend to his flock. He could have left, seeing how close he was, but he didn't. Also counts as Heartwarming.

* The Race X is never mentioned ''at all'' during Half Life 2. Two possibles explanations:1) They were no match for the Combine. 2) Adrian Shephard stopped them from invadng Earth ''singlehandedly''.

* After spending a large portion of Route Kanal and Water Hazard in an unarmed airboat and being pursued by a Combine chopper, Gordon finally gets a repurposed chopper pulse gun mounted on his boat. When you come tearing out of the tunnel and the chopper positions itself to ambush you, it reacts to the sudden hail of energy bolts by ''panicking'' and flying away for several minutes. It's an amazing way to make the player feel the power they've gained and how much the odds have been evened.

* The Battle of White Forest in Episode 2. Accompanied by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHaVdRk3Gtg some of the most Badass music of the entire franchise]], Gordon Freeman nigh-single-handedly goes against an ''army'' of Combine, including several Striders and Hunters, in a last-ditch effort to defend the Rebel headquarters. '''He kills them all and wins'''... until a pissed off [[GreaterScopeVillain Advisor]] arrives.
