* Tommy Oliver gets 2 ''big'' awesome moments that have nothing to do with him being a Ranger and ''everything'' to do with who he is. One, he's the team mentor, which means that we get ''PapaWolf Tommy Oliver'', with every single skill he has at his disposal going towards protecting those kids. Two, Tommy manages to defeat his own insecurities about the past [[TheAtoner he regrets]] and is able to come to the realization that he doesn't matter because he's [Ranger Color] Tommy Oliver but because he's ''Tommy Oliver''.

* A giant-sized MOTW tries to stomp Conner in Triassic mode, and Conner stops the stomp one handed (his off hand, mind; he was still holdng the Shield in the other) a la Cyborg Ninja against [[MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Rex]], then goes one better and ''launches the thing about 30 feet feet into the air''. There aren't many instances of Rangers displaying such levels of strength.
* Goldenrod, Zeltrax's "son" [[CurbStompBattle being Ass-whooped]] by none other than Tommy, that too without a zord [[spoiler:After Goldenrod Defeats the Megazord]]. He just uses the Brachio Staff's various powers and Solos him when he is at MEGAZORD SIZE. This is the legendary reminder for why we love Tommy Oliver.

* Mesogog kicking [[BaseBreaker Lothor's]] ass in the [[PowerRangersNinjaStorm Ninja Storm]] crossover. Hell, the entire two-parter was awesome. From Lothor kidnapping Sensei and tricking the Wind Rangers into giving them evil power coins, to them kicking the Dino Rangers asses, to the two teams fighting each others UNMORPHED, Cam and the Thunder Rangers going into the Abyss of Evil, AND ALL 11 RANGERS IN THEIR BADASS EXPLOSION MORPH.

** Even better when you realize that it's almost identical to a [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Giga Drill Breaker,]] [[HilariousInHindsight three or so years before Gurren Lagann first aired.]] Now if only their drill grew in size before they applied it...

*** Also, Devin pulling off a [[WhatTheHellHero "This is wrong" moment]] on Cassidy for focusing on the top story of the Power Rangers abandoning Reefside instead of putting her full belief in them.
--> '''Devin:''' [[InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn If you do this story, I'm afraid you'll do it without me.]]
*** Later on, Cassidy realizes her mistake and tells the audience during the news report the ''opposite'' of what her boss wants her to tell everyone, and puts her full belief in the Power Rangers, not caring about the risk of losing her job.
*** Connor, Ethan, Kira and Trent standing up and being willing to fight without their powers. In that one gesture, they accomplished a level of awesome that a season full of [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce repeatedly shouting]] [[CatchPhrase 'Never give up!']] couldn't match. And why do they do it? Because Tommy would.

** Not least of which is Trent, [[spoiler: who has just spent the past couple of episodes receiving flak from his teammates for not telling them that his father was the BigBad of the season, single-handedly infiltrating Mesogog's lair and then proceeds to trick him enough to get the others onto the island. Bonus points for the IronicEcho. ''"You should know by now you can't trust me."'']] He then proceeds to [[spoiler: grab the Dino Gems, run through a self-destructing building simultaneously dodging electric sparks and fighting Mooks to get his father and himself out safely.]] Made even better by Ethan's lines while waiting for the two of them to come out.
