* Starladder i-League Invitational, Season 1's Grand Final between Natus Vincere and Vici Gaming Reborn started off with a game for the ages. While much of the game was back-and-forth with phenomenal play by both sides, the game-winning play most certainly deserves mention. After killing off Na'Vi's main damage dealer, Dendi's Death Prophet, while his ultimate Exorcism was active[[note]]said ability had previously allowed Dendi to single-handedly wipe 4 VG-R heroes off the map[[/note]], VG-R goes straight for the jugular with a full 5-man push against Na'Vi's Ancient with an [[OneUp Aegis of the Immortal]] on End's Gyrocopter. What makes this amazing is Na'Vi's ability to not only HoldTheLine but to then turn the five-man push into a ''[[TotalPartyKill five-man wipe]]''. In particular, the last kill on End is absolutely glorious: Na'Vi's Ditya'Ra, on Nature's Prophet, being completely outgunned by Gyrocopter, manages to kite him by repeatedly trapping him with Sprout[[note]]creates a ring of trees around the target and prevents them from moving for a long duration; while the trees can be destroyed by certain items, Gyrocopter had no such items[[/note]] while poking away at his health, buying enough time to kill Gyrocopter '''just as the Aegis expires'''. This clears the way for Na'Vi to take down ''two'' sets of VG-R's barracks. Not to be outdone, General (on Faceless Void) manages to later drop a three-man Chronosphere on VG-R which ultimately resulted in ''yet another teamwipe'', securing a Na'Vi victory.

* Both ''Final Round 19'' and ''NorCal Regionals 2016'' saw Korean Street Fighter god [[TheAce Infiltration]] score two consecutive first place wins, not only qualifying him for the Capcom Cup, but also denying Japanese SF god Tokido in both tournaments' Grand Finals. [[DefiantToTheEnd Though it wasn't for a lack of trying on Tokido's part]], especially considering [[Badass he fought through Loser's Bracket both tournaments to make it to Grand Finals]].

* Marn's performance at ''Northern California Regionals 2016''. Marn is a cocky but dangerous player best known for being friends with Justin Wong, for being the basis for Mr. N in ''Videogame/{{Divekick}}'', and [[ButtMonkey for being the butt of several jokes]] in earlier places on this page''. While Marn has never been one to underestimate, he faded from relevance during the latter end of the ''Videogame/StreetFighterIV'' and ''Videogame/{{Marvel Vs Capcom 3}}'' life cycle--particularly after moving to Vietnam, far from the American scene that knew him. Marn's stream backers paid for him to fly out to NCR and compete, and ''boy'' did they get their money's worth. Despite registering late and being forced into the "Death Bracket"[[note]]The tournament organizer implemented a rule that anyone who registered for the tournament late would be placed in the same bracket together with no attempt to seed or sort based on relationship (meaning two friends or teammates could fight first round) or on player notoriety (meaning that to make it out of that bracket, you would have to defeat ''many'' of the gods of the FGC).[[/note]] Armed with [[ConfusionFu some of the craziest and riskiest]] R. Mika play ever seen, Marn exceeded all expectations and defeated MOV, Filipino Champ, Mago, and K-Brad to get out of the Death Bracket. His impressive reign of terror didn't end there, though, as he then went on to eliminate both [=NuckleDu=] and Ricki Ortiz from the tournament! It took nothing less than Marn's own "[[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Demon]]", Justin Wong, to take Marn out. In the end, Marn finished the tournament in fourth place. An extremely respectable ranking from a guy NO ONE was expecting to do well.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIygo3bIVmo Red Bull Battlegrounds 2013, Scarlett vs. Bomber.]] In a game that Day[9] instantly called "the most incredible game I have seen in ZvT", Scarlett, after starting strong at the beginning of the game with a 1-base Speedling (Zerglings with upgraded speed) strategy, has been fending off a resurgent Bomber for almost half an hour—until a pair of clutch burrowed Banelings (including one that ''no one'' saw coming) from Scarlett turns Bomber's marines into sizzling goo and forces him to concede.
--> '''DJWheat:''' "We didn't even see the Banelings get burrowed ... It was freakin' brilliant!"
** Six months later, at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrJ9lGuvi9A MLG Anaheim 2014]], Scarlett is down one game in a best-of-three against DongRaeGu, a Zerg so feared as to have gained the nickname "Final Boss". What does Scarlett do for Game 2? She [[spoiler: decides to play as ''Protoss'' instead of her usual Zerg, stunning the crowds, commentators, and DongRaeGu alike. ''And she WINS''. As in, not just the game, but the entire ''series'' (though for the deciding match, she reverted back to Zerg)]].
