** The Dev Team (which consisted of six people) had their own moment of awesome; first, Kenji Inafune for designing almost all of the characters and then all of the sprites by himself, and then [[GeniusProgramminv the team managed to squeeze the entire game into a 1-Megabit cartridge]]. To put it in perspective, that's only 125 KB of memory. The one game that eventually launched Capcom’s landmark franchise and made millions for them is smaller than a few [=JPGs=] on your computer! (And, yes, this is a feat on par with the hyper-economical file-size of ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''.)

* The intro for 2.
* Beat being able to take down ''everything'' with ease in 5 and 6, so much so that his function was completely changed from 7 on.
* In the ending of Mega Man 5, Wily's Fortress begins to collapse as Mega Man frees Dr. Light. When the ceiling starts to cave in on them, both doctors panic. What does our favorite robot do? ''He holds up the entire freaking '''mountain-sized fortress''' with pure strength and willpower alone!'' When there wasn't a large enough gap left for Dr. Light and Rock to escape, we hear a certain iconic whistle before a hole is blasted through the fortress for the two to escape through. If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is.
* In Megaman 7, if you time it right you can defeat Turbo Man and Spring Man with Noise Crush as their health bars begin to fill up.

* Beat [[AttackDrone Beat]] being able to take down ''everything'' with ease in 5 ''5'' and 6, ''6''[[note]]well, ''almost'' everything; ''6'' gave all bosses complete immunity to Beat (he couldn’t even target them), but he still completely shredded mooks[[/note]], so much so that [[BottomlessPitRescueService his function was completely changed changed]] from 7 ''7'' on.

** The Japanese version of 7 goes quite differently. In both versions, Wily reminds Mega Man/Rockman that, as per Asimov, [[ThreeLawsCompliant robots can't harm humans]]. In the American version, Mega Man says the above line. In Japan, he obediently powers down to silently question himself, making this Wily's Moment of Awesome instead.

* In ''Mega Man & Bass'', Protoman gets a moment when, after being chopped in half in the opening level, and then getting his own laser shot back at him, takes off the kid's gloves and shoots King with a ''Hadouken''. Eat your heart out, X.

* Wily has a [=CMoA=] in ''Mega Man 9'' when he [[spoiler:''talks Light's robots into rebelling''.]] Yes, you read that right, he [[spoiler:''talks'' Light's own robots into rebelling against humanity, simply by giving a very valid and true argument about their being arbitrarily destroyed after a set time despite still being very much useful as human servants]]. It's a shame [[spoiler:Capcom didn't follow up on it]], because it would've been an awesome twist to the entire ''Mega Man'' series.

* Mega Man himself gets one in ''9'' upon defeating Wily with the MadScientist begging at his feet once again. He then proceeds to use Rush to show him a montage of all the times he's had to beg for mercy in the previous games as a brutal HumiliationConga. Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Funny.

** The moment in question where [[spoiler:Roll gives her medicine to Mega Man for him to take and be able to stop Wily]] can count as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.

** After that is Mega's {{Badass}} UnflinchingWalk home from Dr. Wily's self-destructed fortress. Sadly cut out of the Anniversary Collection due to emulation issues.

** The ''Hadouken'' was a translation joke, it's still {{Badass}} and awesome, of course.

* In Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, the 'Days of Future Past' stage features a poster of several missing characters from the previous Marvel vs Capcom games. All characters appearing on the mugshot poster are tagged with either 'Apprehended' or 'Slain'... Save Megaman. Overlaps with FridgeBrilliance when one realises that in a bad future where Sentinels have gone on a Terminator-esque rampage against Mankind, only Megaman would continue to fight on, for [[BadAss Everlasting Peace]].

* ''VideoGame/MegaMan2ThePowerFighters'' has Mega Man's ending, where Wily drives him into questioning his motives and existence by calling him a hypocrite who destroys robots to bring peace. He's in such a state of navel-gazing that this is what lets Wily escape.
** The same game has Bass's ending, where Wily reveals his ultimate creation, Zero.



** Let's be honest here -- Capcom even making ''Mega Man 9'' is a Crowning Moment in and of itself; doubly so for them essentially making a brand new NES game almost a decade-and-a-half after the system was discontinued.



* [[spoiler:Wily's plan]] in ''Mega Man 10''.
** And how it was derailed by [[spoiler:Roll]].
