* The AGDInteractive Remake of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIIRomancingTheThrone'' outdid themselves with the Air Gem tests. In order to get the magical gem, the Cloud Spirit subjects Graham to [[spoiler:relive an incident in his childhood]], starting things on a lighter note. Then, it takes a spectacularly nasty turn [[spoiler:penciling in a "missing scene" from ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman'' where The Father, head of the Black Cloak, puts TheFinalTemptation in front of Graham at his bleakest hour]], and plays it for all the gut-wrenching power it deserves. The third test centers around the controversial [[spoiler:Mask of Eternity, as an aged Graham can choose to make the game's protagonist his heir -- as Alexander rules the Green Isles, and Rosella is implied to have moved to Etheria with Edgar]]. Quest Studios (the composers) also use SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic on these scenes, weaving in the {{Leitmotif}}s of ''King's Quest III'' and ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestMaskOfEternity King's Quest: Mask of Eternity]]''.

* The sorcerer duel between Graham and Mordak in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder''. It's impressive, but the fact that Graham is no wizard (that's his son's department) just makes the fact that he pulled it off even cooler.

* Also the final battle between Alexander and Alhazred in KQ6, calling Alhazred a disgusting, slimy, psychotic ass doesn't do enough justice to [[CompleteMonster how evil he was]]. This makes killing him all the more satisfying.

** AGD also pulls several Moments of Awesome in their game ending. The wedding is not as simple as it was in the original game, and more an homage to the one depicted in [=KQ6=]. You also get the [[spoiler: FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Count Caldaur reclaiming his rule over Kolyma and officiating]], cameos from everyone (including the Dev team and [[MemeticMutation THE GODDAMN BATMAN!]]), AND a wicked [[spoiler: sword brawl to expose and banish your EvilChancellor - but not before he sets up a curse that explain the ''other'' games]].

* The sorcerer duel between Graham and Mordak in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder''. It's impressive, but the fact Graham is no wizard (that's his son's department) just makes the fact he pulled it off even cooler.
* ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow'': Challenging Death. First, Alex literally [[spoiler: throws down the gauntlet]]. Death accepts the challenge, laying out that he has heard every tale that could come from mortal lips, and finishing with "''Make me cry.''" Then, Alexander takes out [[spoiler: the Beast's mirror]] and...
** The GoldenEnding - AwesomeMomentOfCrowning, ''everyone'' shows up to the wedding, the music is just as cheerful and celebratory as it ''should be,'' and it ends with Jollo dancing and performing tricks for an appreciative crowd. It's hard ''not'' to cheer.
** My favorite moment is in this installment as well. Alexander has completely trashed Alhazred's plans, breaking up his sham wedding, exposing him for the corrupt, amoral asshole he is, and chasing him up to the tower where he has Cassima bound. Alex disposes of the genie (either by killing him or taking control of him). Alhazred, finally out of mooks, draws his sword, at which point Alexander grabs a ''heavy ceremonial sword'', and, despite the fact that it's absolutely not a fighting weapon and he's outmatched, he managed to hold off Alhazred for quite a while. Then, when Alexander is just about out of strength, [[ActionGirl Cassima]] escapes her bonds and distracts Alhazred by ''stabbing him in the shoulder'', at which point Alexander takes advantage of the distraction to ''clock Alhazred with the '''flat''' of the heavy sword''. Even in victory, he spares the life of his enemy. The whole scene is epic awesome as far as I'm concerned.
