** A more open one [[spoiler: doubles with DyingMomentOfAwesome, as Magdaria chooses to go TakingTheBullet rather than letting Elsten (the Dutch Ambassador and pretty much the only person who, alongside Kenshin, can save the JapaneseChristian colony) die. She dies in Sano's arms in complete peace, finally free from her bitterness.]]

* Shishio's main [=CMoA=] was defeating not one, not two, not three, but ''four'' of the most powerful fighters in Japan all at once. Admittedly, they've all come out of brutal fights but the ease with which he completely defeats their ultimate techniques (or, in Sano's case, taking it head on and not even flinching, then defeating the MadeOfIron Sano in one punch) marks him as the most {{Badass}} Rurouni Kenshin character right there.

* Yahiko's got quite a few. He beats [[spoiler:Henya of the Juppongatana by copying the man's technique and riding the shockwave from the dynamite thrown at him to deliver his imitation of Kenshin's Ryu Tsui Sen after being repeatedly stabbed and blown up.]] He then proceeds, despite being [[spoiler:nearly dead, to face down the massive giant that comes next]]. However, what is quite possibly his coolest moment comes [[spoiler:after the timeskip, where he indicates his mastery of Kamiya Kasshin Ryu by stopping a sword with two fingers]]. [[{{Badass}} Bad. Ass.]]

** While Kaoru tends to OvershadowedByAwesome, there is absolutely no denying her teaching abilities. Yahiko is the prime example, turning the former StreetUrchin into Tokyo's most feared swordsman. During his first real battle, Yahiko realizes that Kaoru's training allowed him to remain calm and see his opponent's attacks clearly despite his opponent wielding a blade, noting to thank Kaoru later. Another example is Yutaro, turning a kid who couldn't even a hold sword properly to someone who rivals Yahiko in a matter of days.

*** Really, this is a crowning moment for everyone involved. Yeah, Sishio took on all four at once. But unlike in the manga/anime, the four of them weren't as weakened from their prior battles. Aoshi basically came in at full health, while Saito had no real injuries to his legs and Sano hadn't been subjected to dozens of punches that would liquefy anyone else's insides. And they showed that fact, as all three of them lasted for most of the fight and got their own hits in. Extra credit to Sanosuke here, as his interference repeatedly saved lives during the fight as he did his best to tie Shishio up long enough for anyone with a blade to get a good hit in. And doubt extra credit to Shishio for taking on ''four opponents in good shape at the same time'' as opposed to four weakened opponents one at a time. He even ''tanked Sanoksuke's punches repeatedly.''

* The Live Action movie is one whole Moment of Awesome for the whole of [[RurouniKenshin Rurouni Kenshin]] fandom. Aside from the perfect casting of Takeru Sato as Kenshin, the movie is faithful in numerous ways to the original manga while being a fun and exciting film to boot. But if we were to boil down the awesome moments to specific instances:

But if we were to boil down the awesome moments to specific instances:



*** Saito, [[spoiler:casually cutting his way through Shishio's men while not dropping the cigarette in his mouth. He eventually chooses to dispense with it and start hacking away, not unlike how he fought at [[{{Film/RurouniKenshin}} the Battle of Toba-Fushimi in the first film]].]]

* [[spoiler: Kenshin's training with Seijuro Hiko. Like in the [[RurouniKenshin manga/anime]], Kenshin begs his master to teach him [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique the succession technique of the Hiten Mitsurugi Ryuu]] in order to defeat Shishio. Hiko then agrees to train Kenshin once more, and proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle kick the rurouni's ass repeatedly]], including using the Kuzu Ryu Sen on him at one point, bemoaning at how his stupid student's level of skill has deteriorated in the 14 years since he left his care. Unlike the manga/anime however, Hiko doesn't beat Kenshin with a sword, but with a [[ImprovisedWeapon simple wooden branch]].]]

** [[spoiler: Kenshin vs Soujiro round 2. As before, Soujiro is [[StepfordSmiler pleasant]] in his greetings to Kenshin, while at the same time giddy at the thought of fighting him once more. As the fight goes on however, the smile soon fades on his face as Kenshin slowly whittles away at him, to the point where he can't even walk properly. Soujiro then [[VillainousBSOD suffers a breakdown]], unable to reconcile the fact that someone as weak as Kenshin can overcome him, who believed in the mantra [[SocialDarwinist "The Strong Live, The Weak Die."]]. And when Kenshin finishes him off with a variant of the [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Ama Kakeru Ryuu no Hirameki]], combined with [[BreakThembyTalking the rurouni's parting words]], the poor Tenken really loses it, [[KarmaHoudini unlike]] in the [[RurouniKenshin manga/anime.]]]]
