** The EstablishingCharacterMoment shown in the intro for each character. Highlights include; Mario showing off his acrobatic skills, Bowser appearing in an inferno of flames, Link practicing his sword skills (and is joined by Zelda and Ganondorf, the other Triforce wielders in showing off their gauntlet marks), DonkeyKong swinging through his jungle home, Samus fighting Ridley, Popo and Nana (the ice climbers) scaling a series of glacier platforms, and Nana saving Popo when he slips, and Ness arriving in Onett via teleport running.

** Perhaps the most understated moment in the entire streak came in the form of EVO 2015. The largest Smash 4 tournament to date, it featured entry from almost all the top players in the world. This included Rain -- the best Sheik in Japan -- and Mr. R -- the best Sheik in Europe --, both considered the top player in their regions at the time. There was also a looming threat in Abadango, a Japanese player who used Pac-man, a virtually unused character. In other words, [=ZeRo=], who is known for [[AwesomeByAnalysis adapting to his opponent's playstyle]], would be potentially playing '''three''' top-level players he had barely any experience against. Despite facing Abadango late in the tournament, followed by a grand finals set against the Mr. R [=ZeRo=] would not just go on to win EVO 2015 -- He won '''without losing a single game.'''
** The most famous moment came at The Big House 5, another major that was held a couple weeks before MLG 2015. Despite losing a set in the second round to Seagull Joe, a Sonic player at a level well below him, ZeRo would go all the way through [[HeroicSecondWind losers]] [[HopeSpot bracket]] to win the tournament, even facing Nairo in the grand finals[[labelnote: In fighting game tournament grand finals, the competitor coming from the loser's bracket must win two sets against their opponent in winners]][[/labelnote]].

*** The grand finals sets against Nairo seemed like a bit of an {{anticlimax}}, with Nairo throwing the first set by using Meta Knight and Robin rather than Zero Suit Samus, his best character by far. However, it turned out that Nairo was using his secondaries to get a better idea of how ZeRo's Sheik played, without letting Zero do the same. In other words, he decided against [[LetsGetDangerous pulling out all the stops]] so that he could [[AwesomeByAnalysis download]] ''ZeRo'' [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame of all people]], [[NoSell while preventing the same thing happening to him]]. Oh, and it ''worked'', too. At their next meeting, MLG Finals 2015, Nairo won all three matches against ZeRo's Sheik, and would also win enough against his Diddy Kong to win from losers bracket, ending the streak.

* Competitive player [=ZeRo=], currently the best player for Smash 4 by a wide margin, is so dominant in the game that the tournament organizer for CEO 2015 ''[[https://twitter.com/CEOGaming/status/601106599822958592 put a bounty on his head]]'' for whoever manages to beat him. And he STILL won.
** In fact, [=ZeRo=] would go to hold one of the longest tournament winning streaks in the Smash community until he was finally brought down by his rival Nairo in the MLG tournament. He may no longer be the undisputed best, but let us reiterate that the dude won 53 straight tournaments before finally losing. ''53''. [[GracefulLoser And he still shows good sportsmanship afterwards]].

* The nature of the Smash Ballot was ''finally'' revealed, being a ThereCanBeOnlyOne deal. So who was the big winner? Three words: [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} BAYONETTA GETS WICKED!]] According to the game's final announcement video, Bayonetta was one of the top five most requested characters in America and the '''number one''' choice in Europe, therefore making her the most requested (and negotiable) character in the entire ballot. Congratulations, PlatinumGames!

** Immediately after this scene, Ness and Lucas team up and fight Porky. Ness and Lucas teaming up by itself is awesome given that they never met in canon due to a long time skip between games; having them team up against the one guy they both have as an enemy is even better.

** His introductory video, while maybe not as WOW-tastic as either [=MegaMan=]'s or his own for Brawl, does a good job with keeping the suspense in its first moments as the other two did. We see Mario and Mega Man fighting in Battlefield... [[TheWorfEffect only to get hit]] by Sonic's [[http://www.ssbwiki.com/Stall-then-fall downward A aerial attack.]] Cue [[AwesomeMusic/SonicTheHedgehog the main theme from]] ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' kicking in as we see Sonic kicking ass, while also revealing that his home stage in the WiiU version of the game is none other than ''[[VideoGame/SonicLostWorld Windy Hill Zone]]''.
