The designers of Rex did not know about this at all.all and had actually vetoed the program's inclusion, believing that Rex's systems were too delicate. Fast-forward to MGS4, where one special attack involves repeatedly ''headbutting'' Ray into a building. The other designers clearly didn't know what a beast they had created.]]

* [[spoiler:Rose's]] plan revealed in [=MGS4=] would definitely be a crowning moment of glory. [[spoiler:After [=MGS2=], it was pretty much confirmed that the Patriots would stop at nothing to get what they wanted - kidnapping children had worked so well, that it was pretty clear that since Raiden had proven himself such a great fighter, all they needed to do was take one hostage and they'd have their own private supersoldier. Rose knew this, and knew there would be no way to hide their child from the Partiots. The only option would be to make their child useless to the Patriots, by making Raiden think the child was dead - if the Patriots contacted Raiden and told him they had his child, he's just laugh at them. She could tell that Raiden had his doubts about her immediately after the GW tried to get into his brain and make him question reality, so if she gave him one last push, he'd be sent over the edge. She made him crazy to protect him.]]

** No mention of the fight between Raiden and Vamp at the end of Act 2? This was a CMOA for ''both'' characters, since Vamp [[TookALevelInBadass became more badass]] since [=MGS2=] also. And if that's not good enough, [[AwesomeMusic the music playing in the background fits the fight perfectly]].

** The fight between Snake and Ocelot is particularly awesome because of the way the fight evolves. At first it's just Snake and Liquid throwing around punches, but then the Ocelot persona fully surfaces, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Snake Eater starts playing]] and Ocelot begins to use CQC, giving the fight a very distinct flavor of being between two successors of Big Boss, not just two angry brothers. Finally, it is crowned by the final moments that strip away the decorations and portray the fight as it is: just two old, weary, tired men hurting each other because of a war that has already ended.
* Three words from [=MGS4=]: [[spoiler:"Call me EVA!" and "Call me Mama... Big Mama!" Yes, that 78-year-old with the open top is not only the BondGirl from [=MGS3=], but also your character's mother]]. Also, the entire chase scene that ensues, especially when Raging Raven shows up.

* For gameplay [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments]], in [=MGS4=] it'd have to be the Big Boss Emblem, which if achieved gives you the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Patriot]]... whose own trope is subverted by the BBE's requirements (instead of going off and grinding, you have to play the "ultimate" [=MGS=] game on the hardest difficulty). In fact, there are online guides and a section in the official paperback strategy guide just about achieving the BBE.

* Metal Gear Solid 4, one word. [[spoiler:Raiden.]] It's sort of still being debated on what the Crowning Moment was, but later on, it seems to be a mix of [[spoiler:Breaking his own arm to get to his sword with his other hand so he could pull an Aron Ralston and cut it off so as to free it from a bunch of rubble...BEFORE stopping a umpteenhundredthousand ton SHIP...yes a SHIP...by himself]]. Or, perhaps it was [[spoiler:when he held off and brutally killed who knows how many FROGS, who were apparently terrified judging by the CG, while having NO ARMS, with nothing but his sword in his teeth and his feet.]] If these scenes, among with others unmentioned don't get his [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] title out of the way, I don't know WHAT will.
** "I am lightning. The rain transformed." This troper got shivers.
** This troper was convinced that he'd end up as a limbless torso bouncing around, before finally just rolling along the floor as a head nipping soldiers ankles. The man just doesn't know how to give up.
** It might sound kind of weird, but this one felt his old persona was only completely done away with in the epilogue, when the woman he once thought had major-[[MindScrew mindscrewed]] him [[spoiler:[[AllGirlsWantBadBoys reverentially]] presented him with the son she bore him in secrecy]].
** All the above counts, but this troper was seriously impressed when after Raiden says "I just don't fear death," and escapes, he performs a copecera spin with two Gekkos attached to his legs.

* This troper also felt the 'power walk' on the USS Missouri was awesome given that it was Meryl, Johnny, and a guy who's chemically approaching his late 70's. Give it up!
* By far the most Crowning Moment-worthy Ocelot moment is in [=MGS4=], when [[spoiler:Ocelot and company are surrounded by US troops in Eastern Europe, with seemingly no escape. So what does he do? Hold two fingers and a thumb like a gun and says "bang" while pointing at a helicopter. AND IT GOES DOWN. This troper likes to pretend that Ocelot wasn't using the Guns of the Patriots there, and that he had actually mastered mind bullets.]]

* In a meta example: Remember all that craziness from [=MGS2=] and the ending? This game somehow took all that and got it to make sense, completely in context with the series as a whole to boot!

* Not to mention the cutscene right after defeating Screaming Mantis. Psycho Mantis shows up and is still up to his old tricks, but this isn't the awesome part. The awesome part comes up right after when he suddenly disappears. You and Snake are no doubt confused as to what happened, right up until a familiar face flashes on the screen, with broken glasses, and crying blood. That's right, The Sorrow himself shows up to assist Snake by sending Mantis back to the void. He leaves you with the same FamousLastWords he gave to The Boss.
** The Sorrow: "The spirit of the warrior will always be with you"
