%%[[/folder]]
* The scene "The Great Invasion" in the "Subspace Emissary", [[spoiler:where the ''Halberd'' goes up against Ganondorf and Bowser's battleship. The ''Halberd'' gets destroyed by only a few shots (yes, that's right, the friggin ''Halberd'' gets thoroughly owned), only to have Samus's gunship, the Falcon Flyer, Falco's Arwing, and even Olimar's little rocket fly out of the blast, right into the teeth of Ganondorf's guns, weaving through and around {{roboteching}} lasers bigger than they are... and it's all a distraction, to allow Kirby to get close enough on the [[HoverBoard Dragoon]] to take the ship down in one hit.]]
** See it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaAKKfZVSWw here]], in all its massive awesomeness.
** The fact that Kirby [[spoiler:saved Link, Zelda, Peach, Yoshi, Meta Knight, Ice Climbers, R.O.B, Snake, and Wario '''singlehandedly''' from the trophification.]]
** Not to mention [[spoiler:the battleship itself, which looks like a star destroyer that TookALevelInBadass. Ganondorf and Bowser. Commanding a star destroyer. Which they blew up a floating island to even ''use''.]]
*** Their reaction to [[spoiler:the ship's destruction is pretty awesome as well. Ganondorf turns with a CapeSwish and strides into Subspace while Bowser clinches his fists and follows. As they disappear from view, the platform they were just standing on explodes.]] Bad. Ass.
* Most of the cast in the Subspace Emissary gets at least one moment. Case in point, [[spoiler:R.O.B., in his intro scene "Ganondorf Takes Command" (the one where it first lists his name), right after his own kind turned on him, spends a solid minute ''[[ManOnFire on fire]]'', looking perhaps a little sad at worst, then proceeds to blast several flying mooks out of the air with consecutive eye-laser blasts before shaking off the fire. Additionally, he spent the better portion of the scene ''[[IncendiaryExponent on fire]]''. And it was awesome.]]
* King Dedede ''[[SpotlightStealingSquad is the hero of the entire goddamn story.]]'' (Inasmuch as there is a hero; everyone did their fair share, and the ending essentially proved that all the way through by the way it was played.) Which is funny because Sakurai VOICED him... so basically, the creator of the series saved everyone... yes.
** Additionally, King Dedede's ''[[AnotherSideAnotherStory entire side story]]'' is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. [[spoiler: He lands a OneHitKO on Luigi, jacks Wario's car, puts badges on all three stolen trophies [[HeroicSacrifice except himself,]] and ends up reviving Ness and Luigi with his badges, and saving half the cast's lives.]]
* Sonic's unexpected appearance. Players wait most of the game waiting for him to show up, and then [[spoiler:was totally blindsided when he stopped Tabuu from turning everyone back into trophies in the "The Final Battle" scene. Too bad that was a case of GameplayAndStorySegregation.]]
** It seems both ironic AND fitting that the fastest character in the game would be [[spoiler:the LAST guy to show up]].
** The weird thing is, this is actually ''in-character'' for Sonic; [[spoiler: not taking action until the absolutely LAST MOMENT, because he's so goddamn fast he can afford to wait that long]] is a trait shown in several of his own continuities.
* Ness when [[spoiler:fighting off Wario in the "Lucas Leaves Ness" scene. Not only does he evade every shot targeting him, but when Wario shoots at the crybaby Lucas, NESS TAKES THE HIT FOR HIM. Talk about a noble sacrifice.]] This turns out to pay off later when [[spoiler:King Dedede's badges restore him and Luigi because King Dedede had put the badges on the two of them, as they restore King Dedede right away, and the trio proceed to find and restore about half of everybody hit by Tabuu's earlier attack.]] Oh, and just look at his expressions, such as when he's looking at [[spoiler:a restored Dedede]]. Heck, the only reason why you'd expect somebody with a baby face like Ness's to pull this off is because of examples like Kirby as indicated above.
** This is also a moment of awesome for ''Wario'', who never before has been ''genuinely sinister and frightening''.
** Hell, Ness [[spoiler:destroying the Pig King statue with one PK Flash hit]] in the "Ness and Porky Face Off" scene certainly counts -- especially since in ''Mother 3'', [[spoiler:it has ''one hundred million hit points'' and can't be destroyed without a certain weapon]]. Totally win.
*** Believe it or not, [[spoiler:PK Flash can kill that statue in one hit in ''Mother 3'', [[FridgeBrilliance because that boss is susceptible to the side effects of PK Flash, including a one-hit kill.]]]] [[GameplayAndStorySegregation Unfortunately you can't repeat the stunt in the stage proper, even playing as Ness.]]
* Probably not as awesome as some of the finer moments, but in the "The Destiny of Ridley & Samus" scene, Samus's eternal nemesis Ridley [[spoiler:spends a good minute fucking Samus up -- half of that being grinding her, suit and all, against a wall. He would have kept it up until Samus was a goner had Pikachu not interfered. Yes, ''[[ComMons Pikachu]]'', electrocuting and causing real, ''serious'' damage to someone who regularly fights toe-to-toe with Samus Fuckin' Aran.]]
* "Sheik and the Fallen Arwing", the princess's scene. [[spoiler:Fox is strafing the ''Halberd'', but might have caught Peach in the crossfire. Zelda (in her Sheik persona) doesn't like that, so she leaps up onto Fox's Arwing and ''spearhands through the canopy''. The two drop to the deck [[LetsYouAndHimFight and start fighting]] -- but Peach, unhurt, promptly ends the fight by offering Fox a cup of tea. Fox is confused for a moment, then looks back at Sheik, who already has a cup.]] Doubles as a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}. Not to mention [[spoiler:Peach calmly walking on the Halberd's deck ''as explosions go off behind her''.]]
* Several characters, like Fox ("Fox Confronts [[OlympusMons RAYQUAZA]]"), Falco ("Falco Appears"), and Falcon ("The Two Captains") had awesome entrances.
* The cutscene introducing Olimar and Captain Falcon is a [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments hilarious]] example. We start with a shot of the Pikmin swarming a giant-size ROB, who promptly spins its arms and sends them flying off (and killing about two-thirds of them), causing the tiny-by-comparison Olimar to step back. But then a red Pikmin points at something in the distance, Olimar looks back, and, with the Mute City theme blaring in the background, Captain Falcon zooms out of nowhere in the Blue Falcon, ejects forward from the seat at several miles an hour, delivers a ''FALCON PUNCH'' to the R.O.B.'s head that sends it flying off into the distance, and then does a cool pose as he lands and powerskids to a stop.....straight through the rest of Olimar's Pikmin, killing them all. The music abruptly stops, and Olimar gives him a blank stare.
* Snake is introduced in the only cutscene in the entire story to feature coherent dialogue:
--> '''Snake:''' [[BreakingTheFourthWall "Kept you waiting, huh?"]]
* While not as awesome as some of the above, Snake's [[spoiler:instant unexpected ownage of the Game & Watches on the Halberd in "The Ones in the Bridge" was pretty cool.]] Plus, Dedede [[spoiler:in his first appearance, "King Dedede Steals Peach/King Dedede Steals Zelda", 1-hit surprise KO'ing Luigi and going on to use his Waddle Dees to steal Wario's ride and his trophies.]]
** On the subject of Dedede, when [[spoiler:Bowser attacks him and gets knocked out. Dedede revives him and Bowser steps up to fight him again, and Dedede just pimp-slaps him in the face. (Scenes: "King Dedede Vs. King Bowser" and "The True Enemy Is Right There").]]
* Mario gets one if you choose to save Peach: Once he sees her trophy disappearing at the hands of Link later in the game, he ''charges right at him''. Link avoids being punched into the ground! If you save Zelda the whole scenario is reversed; it's Link who charges at Mario, who then avoids becoming a plumber-kebab. (Scene: "Mario's Misunderstanding/Link's Misunderstanding")
* There is also their BigDamnHeroes later, when Mario, Link, Pit, Yoshi and Kirby get their {{Ass Kicking Pose}}s, and jump in a YeahShot to fight the Primids attacking Lucas, PT, Marth, and Ike. (Scene: "The Five Warriors") It's unfortunate that the Yeah Shot gets cut off later when re-viewing the scenes.
* The very team up of three of the biggest badasses on the roster (Lucario, Meta Knight and Snake) during the Halberd arc.
* The Ancient Minister has been dropping Subspace Bombs left and right, easily escaping every single foe that tries to stop him (even the ones that fly!), avoiding even Marth and Meta Knight's attacks... when all of a sudden [[{{BFS}} Ragnell]] spins into frame, shortly followed by Ike, and he slices through the Minister's bomb-carrying arm with his Aether move, sending the enemy spinning into the distance and rendering the bomb useless. The three go into a badass pose , as well as the Ancient Minister's dawning look of realization (read: "[[OhCrap Oh shit]]" look) as he notices the sword come up behind him. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWf_nn8jFoc See it here]] (Scene: "Ike Unleashes Aether")
** Just to add to the awesome, this is [[spoiler:the only time anyone successfully prevents a subspace bomb from being deployed.]] The team of Ike with MK and Marth running interference is just that awesome.
* Mario and Link get one in one stage where they charge at a pair of R.O.B.s about to detonate a subspace bomb, while dodging a steady stream of lasers. The two most iconic. Nintendo. Characters. Ever. Mario. And. Link. On a team. Dodging lasers. Badass. (Scene: "The R.O.B. Army Rallies")
* Lucas [[spoiler:growing a pair and fighting Wario. (Scene: "The Wario and Lucas Rematch")]]
** Also, Lucas [[spoiler:when he and Pokemon Trainer were picked up by Galleom and flown into the sky, rather than being caught in Galleom's explosion, Lucas blew off Galleom's arm, freeing himself and the PT. What made it awesome was that Lucas knew full well that they were screwed either way, but still tried to protect the unconscious PT from impact, and Meta Knight caught them in midair for the win. (Scene: "Galleom Self-Destructs")]]
* Even ''Olimar'' manages a CMOA, when we see Fox's Arwing, Samus's Gunship, Kirby on the Dragoon, and Falcon's Falcon Flyer, and Olimar's 50's style rocket, the company ship from ''Pikmin 2'', is keeping up with them, even while shuddering in mid-air and making cartoonish sputtering noises.
* When Diddy and Donkey make their first appearance. One of Bowser's minions fires a pair of Bullet Bills at Donkey, Diddy rushes out of the forest, jumps off of Donkey's back, and then goes into BulletTime and fires two Peanut Popguns at the Bullet Bills *pak* *pak*. Then, he shoots one more shot at a third Bullet Bill, and lands next to Donkey. They both do an AssKickingPose as the Bullet Bill lands behind them and ''EXPLODES''. (Scene: "Donkey Kong & Diddy Kong")
** Before that, Bowser's mooks swipe his bananas and what does DK do? WRECKS the mooks he can get his hands on and leaps out of the bushes with a ''ROAR''. If that's not badass enough for the thrilla gorilla, nothing is.
* The scenes where after cornering the supposed leader of the subspace army, Ganondorf [[spoiler:pops out of nowhere as a hologram and presses a button which makes all the [=ROBs=] turn on the subspace bombs]]; it's the first time Ganondorf directly interferes with the heroes, and it is very evil. (Scene: "Ganondorf Takes Command")
* Another one for Ganondorf... [[spoiler:After seeing the ''creator of the world'' being effortlessly manipulated into doing another being's dirty work, what does Ganondorf do? He jumps and tries to whup Tabuu's ''{{TRON}}''-inspired ass. Too bad he fails. (Scene: "The Crushing, Ruinous Defeat")]]
* And because nobody else has directly said anything about it, [[spoiler:Ness and Luigi being revived from the their trophy state and immediately reviving Dedede once they saw the badges on them. This was a CMOA because, dude, Dedede's plan ''worked'', and if it wasn't for those three (and Kirby), everybody would be screwed. (Scene: "King Dedede's Timed Badges")]]
* Lucario [[spoiler:finding Snake hiding in his box]] just goes to show you that Lucario [[spoiler:is smarter than Metal Gear bad guys]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RELSX1rpiaY See video here]]. (Scene: "LUCARIO Discovers Snake")
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTizNmnhL7U This Trailer]] for the Subspace Emissary, set to the "[[Film/ThreeHundred This! Is! Sparta!]]" [[StupidStatementDancemix Remix.]] Also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Cn3rt0UYPw this one]], set to the ''300'' trailer audio.
* Power Suit Samus's entry. Seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRSloDdDM-c here]], one doesn't need an explanation for why it is Samus's CMOA. She's staring in awe at her suit, when a mass of R.O.B.s flood in from the hallway. The shot cuts to the hallway, where the R.O.B.'s are consumed by an explosion as Samus puts on her suit and with one missile blast destroys at least 10 R.O.B.s, and [[SmokeShield she walks out of the smoke.]] Samus puts on her suit and destroys 10 R.O.B.s in ''two seconds''. (Scene: "Samus Revived")
* Fox meeting Diddy, hurting [[OlympusMons Rayquaza]] as easily as if he was swatting a fly when he pulls out his reflector, causing Rayquaza's energy blast to rebound on itself. (Scene: "Fox Confronts RAYQUAZA")
* Surely Luigi venturing into Subspace to save the others must count? When we first see him, he's terrified of a harmless little Waddle Dee, and now he's willing to go through [[EldritchLocation Subspace]] to save his pals? He [[TookALevelInBadass grew a pair]] between these two events.
** Nah, he had that pair the entire time. [[CowardlyLion He was almost certainly terrified of going into Subspace, but he went in anyway to save his bro and all the other heroes,]] whereas he had no reason to put his fear aside against the Waddle Dees because nobody was in trouble.
* The ending. [[spoiler:After Tabuu is defeated, the world returns to normal, all except for the floating island the [=ROBs=] came from: all that remains of it is a small ball of light. After that, the opening theme for Brawl plays, complete with the Latin lyrics and their English translations. It doesn't quite become a CMOA until about halfway through the song, when we see all the heroes who escaped Subspace standing together on a cliff, looking out at the light where the ROB's island once stood. Seeing all the heroes standing together was a powerful image: many of them were enemies with one another, some were from completely different origins altogether, but all of them made a stand together to save the world from utter destruction. This makes the ending of the game ''THE'' Crowning Moment of Awesome of the Subspace Emissary.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQvWqqLI1mg See it here.]]
* Mario leading the entire Smash Cast to face Tabuu. Sure, they all get defeated by Tabuu's Off-Wings, but still... it was just amazing! Mario is THE leader of all Nintendo, and to see him leading the Smash crew into battle, and going "hm!" with a frown when he sees Tabuu... Mario is just that amazing.
* Yoshi gets a small one after a subspace bomb goes off; while Kirby carries Pit and Link overhead on a warp star, Yoshi runs Mario to safety on his back, like he usually finds himself doing in the mainstream Mario games. What makes it double as awesome is that Yoshi outruns the explosion ''and'' manages to keep up relatively well with a warp star.
* Link's introduction, in which he draws the Master Sword while the Legend of Zelda title theme swells. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GX7u0fhHu04 See it here.]]
* Ike, Marth, Pokemon Trainer, and others appear to be overwhelmed by Shadowbugs at The Canyon. Only for five figures decide to make the odds more even and leap into action. Those five you ask? Mario, Link, Pit, Kirby, and Yoshi!
* Here's one point that only really becomes evident in hindsight: Peach is much less willing to fight than, oh, ''everybody''. This is the World of Trophies, where everyone is a Blood Knight from [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Ganon}} Ganondorf]] to [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Jigglypuff]], and being turned into a Trophy is death in part because you ''can't'' fight. A pacifistic character just goes against the rules of the world. This alone makes Peach pretty damn impressive.

* At the beginning of the final Smash Direct, Corrin, the protagonist of of ''FireEmblemFates'' was announced as the sixth DLC character. Despite a VocalMinority groaning at having ''another'' [=FE=] character in the roster, the [[CrossesTheLineTwice sheer audacity]] of his reveal trailer turned most of the viewer's opinions around. It also helps that his moveset is vastly unlike any of the previous ''Fire Emblem'' characters', revolving around Corrin's [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Manakete powers]], giving one last breath of fresh air from the series after Robin. And speaking of Robin, like him/her, Corrin also comes in both male and female flavors.

* So the ballot ended on October 6th, 2015 [[note]] It was supposed to be the 3rd, but for some reason, it was extended to the 6th.[[/note]], and Bayonetta was announced as the winner of the ballot on December 15th, 2015. In other words, Sakurai somehow managed to get a character to be at least presentable[[note]]Given that he had to release Bayonetta and Corrin about 2 months after on February 3rd, 2016.[[/note]] in just about 2 months time. Now that is very impressive. Especially considering his tendinitis in his arm.
