* "Canary". Cyberterrorist Ajay Khan ([[HeyItsThatGuy Vik]] [[Series/{{Chuck}} Sahay]]) is arrested by the team, all in disguise--[=McGee=] as a maintenance man, Gibbs pretending to be homeless, and Ziva acting like a bimbo, while Tony hides in the dumpster and awaits his chance to spring out and cuff Khan from behind.

* In season five, we meet Damon Werth, a marine who took steroids to counter a form of anemia that would have prevented his serving. He repeats in season seven's "Oulaws and In-Laws," working as a mercenary. His team has been hired to abduct Mike Franks' daughter-in-law and granddaughter, being told they'd been kidnapped and needed a rescue. The minute he recognizes Ziva, who points out that he just broke into Gibbs's living room, he knocks out his partners and quits.

* In Season 9's episode "Engaged: Part 2", Tony interrogates an Isreali Extremist, alone. No jokes, no jabs, just... plain, stone-cold determination that would impress Gibbs to the extreme.

* In 9x15, the people who dress up as superheroes and fulfill the role of a Neighborhood Watch are pretty nerdy. That doesn't invalidate the fact that they put themselves in danger constantly in order to keep crime down and can actually be pretty [[{{Badass}} badass]]. In what may be one of the most awesome [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMOA]] awarded to a one-episode character, thin, extremely nerdy-looking Clarence Tobett [[OneHitKO One Hit KOs]] the murderer with an ''OffhandBackhand''.

* "Frame-Up": Tony is a murder suspect. In his cell, he interrogates ''himself'', including amateur psychoanalysis. Also a CMOA for Michael Weatherly, who acts the ''hell'' out of the whole scene.

** The whole episode is one giant [=CMoA=] for Tony, starting off with "I'm here to kill ya" all the way through the end.
*** It's a actually the culmination of a series of [=CMoA=] for Tony starting with [[spoiler:surviving hand to hand combat with and subsequently killing Ziva's Boyfriend, a Mossad assassin (which gets subverted when Ducky discovers he was drunk), after almost singlehandedly discovering the real reasons of his presence in the US and then managing to trick the director of Mossad, Ziva's father, into revealing critical information while the director was interrogating him, all live on camera for his daughter to see.]]

* Tony turning ObfuscatingStupidity into a CMOA when he gets Eli David to admit to something he really doesn't want to admit to, while TONY is the one being interrogated. The OhCrap look on Eli's face, coupled with the very subtle-but-still-there "did I just see that?" on Vance's face just cements the awesome.

* 'Cabin Fever' is full of CMOAs, with the episode revolving around Fornell struggling with his grief, and Gibbs getting far too close to the Mishnev case. After a visit from Emily Fornell, where she laments how bad her father has gone; coupled with Tobias forcing himself into the case of the week, Vance has no choice but to go over Fornell's head to his FBI counterpart. Gibbs gives him an alternate choice, [[spoiler:culminating in Fornell getting revenge on Mishnev for killing Diane.]] Bonus points for Gibbs pulling an absolutely epic MagnificentBastard in the process.

** Same episode. Gibbs needs to resolve the whole Reynosa mess without giving up the evidence report [[spoiler: that says he's a murderer,]] and needs to keep his team, father AND mentor safe. [[spoiler: He nails both siblings, by having one murder the other, in a well-constructed GambitRoulette.]]

* [[spoiler:Dorneget's]] DyingMomentOfAwesome in ''The Lost Boys'', where he singlehandedly saves countless lives from a terrorist attack in Cairo at the cost of his own and only a few casualties. Bonus points for him [[TookALevelInBadass taking a few level in badass]] in the interim between appearances and becoming a full agent; not to mention heading the Cyber investigation, being the liaison between agencies on said op and gaining [[spoiler: Gibbs']] respect.
