* In Chapter 7-4 of ''Super Paper Mario'', [[BigDamnHeroes Rebbi arrives with a brigade of Nimbis]] to help Mario and co. get past massive squadron of Skellobits and Skellobombers. Also counts as the closest that VideoGame/SuperMarioBros will ever get to depicting Armageddon!
--> '''Rebbi:''' [[SophisticatedAsHell THOU ART TOAST!]]
* In Chapter 8-2 of ''Super Paper Mario'', you have to fight Mimi ([[RecurringBoss AGAIN]]) at the end, but this time you can only play as Peach. Nothing is better than kicking the most annoying boss's ass using [[ActionGirl Peach]], ''of all characters''. And to top that off, creepy but [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome music]] plays in the background.
** Even better is what happens immediately before the fight. Mimi insults Peach for being a stereotypical DamselInDistress, causing Peach to [[RageBreakingPoint get angrier than we've ever seen her before]] and go after Mimi. When Mario and Luigi attempt to back her up, she firmly demands that they leave the fighting to her, and they respond by backing away slowly and giving Peach the space she needs to square off.
** Don't forget that Peach reveals her annoyance at being the DamselScrappy. Then, after the battle [[spoiler: she attempts to save Mimi's life.]] If that doesn't [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap save her from the scrappy heap]], nothing will.
* After that, Luigi manages to beat Dimentio ''without even using Pixls!'' Granted, [[spoiler:it ended up playing into Dimentio's plan in the end]], but that's still awesome for the Man in Green.
* Tippi's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to [[spoiler:Super Dimentio]] shortly before his death.
--> '''Tippi:''' Nothing is decided entirely by fate, you know... All things determine their destinies. Good-bye now, [[spoiler:Dimentio]]. [[TakeThat We'll add a footnote to the prophecy about your failure.]]
** [[spoiler:Dimentio]] got told off by a rainbow-colored butterfly!
** Bowser's line makes it even better:
-->You believed in your prophecy, and we believed in mopping the FLOOR with you!
** Oh yeah, and [[spoiler:Dimentio]]'s TakingYouWithMe move that could only be canceled out [[spoiler:''BY MARRIAGE'']]. He didn't rely on the heroes being dumb enough to do absolutely nothing, as most villains tend to do.
* Every time you get a Mega Star, you transform into a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever humongous]] pixelated version of yourself which allows you to destroy anything in your path while a [[AwesomeMusic/PaperMario kick-ass]] version of the series invincibility theme plays in the background.
** Not only is the star itself absolute 8-bit awesome, but the Mega Koopa involves an enemy picking it up and becoming a gigantic 8-bit Koopa, and running you down.
* You're talking to that nice old wizard, and suddenly, [[spoiler:Dimentio, who at this point has begun to reveal what a MagnificentBastard he is,]] shows up ''out of nowhere'' and SENDS YOU TO THE PG VERSION OF HELL. No battle, nothing. Just snaps his fingers and pretty much kills your whole party. What's more, [[BatmanGambit he's relying on your ability to overcome that]], and has in fact helped you out.
%%* More of Super Paper Mario: The Bitlands (save the giant tree), Sammer's Kingdom, and the Brobot fight in space.

* Anytime Mario and company Super Guard successfully, the awesomeness of the [=SG=] being directly proportional to the flash and power of the attack. In some cases, there are opportunities for Awesome Moments against weak enemies, such as if Mario Super Guards against the Goomba Bros.' sneak attack during the opening bout of the Glitz Pit. (Depending on the requirements, Mario may be free to whale on them in his next opening turn, which only amplifies his entrance to the put).

** She actually managed to scare the crap out of Mario and Luigi so badly that not only do they say it's ok for Peach to fight Mimi alone, but they also walk away BACKWARDS to emphasize how scared they were.

* Peach wishing for the Star Beam to gain power after [[spoiler:Bowser cancels it out]].

to:

* Peach wishing for In the not-quite-Final Battle, Bowser has made himself invincible by using the Star Rod, but Mario undoes the invincibility by using the Star Beam, a power granted to him by the Star Spirits he rescued in the game. When Bowser's taken enough damage, he flees. In the ''final'' Final Battle with Bowser, you're on a special energy-booster platform -- the platform's energy boost, combined with the Star Rod, makes [[spoiler:the Star Beam fail to gain work]]! At this point, Princess Peach (along with just about everybody in the Kingdom) makes a wish for Mario to win, giving just enough power after [[spoiler:Bowser cancels it out]].to the Star Spirits to help Mario take down Bowser once and for all.


Added DiffLines:

* The scene before the final boss. Peach, [[spoiler: who [[DemonicPossession has been possessed by the Shadow Queen]], is commanded by Grodus, who never learned that EvilIsNotAToy, to obey him. She then goes and fires a bolt of lightning at him, which leaves NOTHING BUT HIS HEAD.]] This coming from a Mario game.

* Kolorado tries to attack Lava Piranha ''while it's on fire''.

* Kolorado tries to attack Lava Piranha ''while it's on fire''. Granted, the only thing that comes of it is a RumpRoast, but props for actually trying to come to Mario's aid, as that's definitely a step beyond most other Mushroom Kingdom inhabitants!



* During the last chapter's first cutscene, the game hands us one. [[spoiler:After [[TheDragon Kammy Koopa]] tells [[BigBad Bowser]] that [[TheHero Mario]] has saved all of the Star Spirits, he ties up Princess Peach and decides to kill Mario himself. Twink of all people jumps in to try and save Peach by attacking the [[EliteMooks Koopatrol]].]] Sure, it didn't work, but hey, it was awesome nonetheless.

again, at least he tries.
* Peach wishing for the Star Beam to gain power after [[spoiler: Bowser [[spoiler:Bowser cancels it out]].



* Another villainous one by Kammy: she's very cunning all throughout the game, which includes not trusting Peach's answers when Bowser questions her about Mario's weaknesses and seeing through Peach's clever disguise late in the game. On top of all that, [[spoiler: she subverts a major villain cliche by preparing a secret weapon for Mario's arrival, even saying, "Do you really think we were foolish enough to just sit back and watch as you save the Star Spirits?"]]
