** Anytime Inu Yasha and Sesshoumaru get within a mile of each other, at least one of them is going to get a [=CMoA=], but when they are also near Mouryoumaru, they practically chain them together, such as human Inu Yasha taking advantage of Sesshoumaru's pride-based BeamSpam outburst against a youki-absorbing Mouryoumaru by preventing his allies from saving him before sunrise so that the otherwise lethal absorbing of his returning youki would just overload the little bastard instead.

** And from the final battle, Inu Yasha [[spoiler: cutting a hole through TIME AND SPACE to fight inside the Shikon No Tama after it had transported itself and Kagome back to Kagome's time and then doing it AGAIN when he's got a moment's respite from days of fighting the evil half of the Shikon no Tama's spirit to go to the pocket dimension that Kagome was located in and keep her from falling all the way into the despair of solitude.]]

** Her WorldOfCardboardSpeech to [[spoiler: the Infant and his {{Breaking Speech}}es.]] It's doubly awesome because [[spoiler: the Infant had been telling her nonstop that she was destined to be be the UnrequitedTragicMaiden, that Inuyasha would only ever love Kikyou, ''and'' that she was inferior to Kikyou -- but she denounced that and ''openly'' admitted that she was jealous of Kikyou, but [[LoveHurts that was a more-or-less normal part of romantic love]].]] Considering how society as a whole encourages the very unrealistic [[spoiler: "be selfless to the [[GoodisDumb point of stupidity]] and don't allow yourself to have bad feelings, or you're not truely in love"]] deal, [[HumansAreFlawed such emotional honesty coming from Kagome]] is refreshing and appreciated.

** He does it again in the third movie while fighting Inuyasha, who is possessed by an enormously powerful evil EmpathicWeapon - only the first of a ''series'' of Awesome Moments for Sesshoumaru throughout the film, one of which involves blocking that evil EmpathicWeapon by ''punching it away with his bare fist.''
** Sesshoumaru's crowning moment, however, has got to be his ''[[ToHellAndBack storming of Hell]]'' to get Rin, his MoralityPet, back, in one of the greatest PapaWolf moments in the entire manga: [[spoiler:When Rin is taken to the underworld by a hellhound, Sesshoumaru follows and kills it. When he finds out she's already dead, he then proceeds to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu kick the King of Hell's ass]] to get her back. When this doesn't work, he actually shows the closest thing to human emotion he's ever done in the series, purifies the souls of the dead as an afterthought, then rips a hole back into normal reality. After all of this, his mother (a youkai ''queen'') resurrects Rin since ''Sesshoumaru'', of all people, is clearly unhappy about her death. He goes from AloofBigBrother to a combination of [[ManOnFire John Creasy]], [[Literature/TheBible Jesus]], and {{Spawn}} in a CrowningMomentOfAwesome and CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming unparalleled in the other 500+ chapters of the manga]]. DO. NOT. MESS. WITH. RIN.
** Combined with CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, there's Sesshoumaru [[spoiler: throwing away Tenseiga out of grief for having failed to save Rin and then taking it back and using it to purify Hell out of pity for the souls trapped there]], not to mention his final real battle with Inu Yasha, where he [[spoiler: deliberately shatters his Tenseiga on Tessaiga in order to stop Naraku from manipulating it to kill Inu Yasha and give up the Meidou ability to his little brother's sword out of recognition of his worthiness to wield their father's legendary blade.]]
** And let's not forget Sesshoumaru's first fight with Magatsushi, wherein he [[UpToEleven amps up]] his [[HealingFactor regeneration]] out of [[DontYouDarePityMe sheer rage at receiving Inu Yasha's pity]], and then [[spoiler: [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield pulls out]] a [[MoreThanInfinite super-sword]] of his own -- as well as getting his arm back -- due to CharacterDevelopment.

* Even [[IronWoobie Kohaku]] earns one by willingly stepping into Naraku's clutches, in order to jam one of [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Kagome's]] arrows, supercharged with [[{{Miko}} Kikyou's]] light into the shell covering the [[MacGuffin Shikon no Tama]] to give the Inu-tachi an opening to attempt to kill him.

* What? Nothing for poor [[GentleGiant Jinenji?]]. He started out as a CowardlyLion Woobie who couldn't stand the insults [[HumansAreBastards the other villagers]]. Then, in order to protect Kagome from a bug like demon he [[OffWithHisHead beheaded that thing]] by crushing its neck. He then proceeds to obliterate said head with a MegatonPunch. Borders with CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming later when he approaches the scared villagers (who planned to kill him) and offers them herbs to heal their wounds.

* Anything having to do with the Band of Seven, really. Considering they're only ''human'' (and whatever Kyokotsu is) makes their army-wiping strength and cunning all the more impressive. That, and the fact Inuyasha and pals were even able to keep up with them should be a testament to how strong the group has become.
** There's also the fact that Koga went up to the rest of the Band of Seven ''by himself''. It takes massive balls to go up to five of the most dangerous humans in the story - people that even gave the main hero group some trouble - ''alone''.

* Sango destroying her own weapon to save Miroku. Finally she got to do something to pay him back for the big sacrifices he's made for her. Sadly this awesome moment from the manga was severely truncated in the Final Act.

** Also, digging herself out of her own grave. She took like 4 hits that each should have been individually fatal, but still fought back to the keep going.

** Inuyasha using the Adamant Blade on Naraku, who is then cut by Sesshomaru who calls him [[PrideBeforeAFall too arrogant]], which forces him to retreat. Especially awesome since unlike previously when Naraku would be just shocked, Naraku's genuine anguish is very satisfying after being built up as a nigh-invincible force and [[LaserGuidedKarma the atrocities he commits from the Mt. Hakurei arc to the Underworld arc.]]

**Allowing Tekkei to eat him, only to kill her by bursting the inside of her forehead.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_28AC_hmxA&feature=related Maybe I'm not]] [[ScrewYouElves so worthless then]], ''[[ShutUpHannibal AM I?!]]'' He basically wounds Sesshomaru in a way that the older brother never thought possible, and then told him that both of them were nothing compared to their father, with Inu-daddy having granted the sword to Inuyasha, meaning that Sesshomaru was never meant to have it.

* [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Kagome]] Higurashi shooting Naraku with a single arrow, [[UnstoppableRage impossibly]] [[ThisIsUnforgivable pissed off]] at him [[spoiler: for [[BatmanGambit manipulating Sango]] into stealing Inuyasha's Tessaiga for him, then manipulating her brother Kohaku into almost killing Sango]]... which is enough to have her ''use said arrow to purify the heavily poisoned air in her surroundings and blast about half of Naraku's body off''.

* Or how about Miroku doing this same thing near the end of the series? Trying to make a HeroicSacrifice by almost sucking in Naraku's heart with his Wind Tunnel, despite the poisonous insects and massive amounts of miasma. Mostly driven by the desire to eliminate Naraku before he could kill Kohaku by taking his jewel shard, so that Sango would not go through the pain of losing her little brother again, Miroku toughs it out even while [[BloodFromEveryOrifice bleeding from the mouth, nose, and ''eyes'']], and ''would have killed Naraku'' had Inuyasha not forcibly closed the Wind Tunnel. Naraku even says that Inuyasha just gave up their best chance of killing him. Its also one of the few times where we see Inuyasha actually concerned about Miroku.
