* Minako is grabbed by the ankle and flung into the air by a possessed civilian. She flips herself overs in the opposite direction ''while in mid-air'' and kicks him with her free leg, forcing him to let go.

** A minor moment, but when Sailor Moon and Chibiusa are abducted onto Rubeus's castle, Rubeus mocks how he now has the silver crystal and Chibiusa, or "the rabbit" as he knows her. So what does Sailor Moon do? She lies and says that Chibiusa is her cousin and that she wouldn't be stupid enough to actually bring him "the rabbit". Though Rubeus soon discovers that Chibiusa is "the rabbit" and was going to test her later, he did fall for it and looked visibly shocked. Props to Usagi for coming up with a plausible lie in a situation where others would have panicked and sold it convincingly.
** Another awesome moment: Chibiusa, in Rubeus's castle with Sailor Moon, finds his power enhancement device and tries to yank it out of the ground...and succeeds [[note]]And in doing so, invokes her Crystal power willfully for the first time[[/note]], despite all the damage she got as a result ''and'' uses this to atone for being the one who put everyone in such a predicament to start with, refusing to let go when she's told to do it. One has to admit, even though she's a BrattyHalfPint in this version, she eventually learns when to stop being one when the going gets tough, and when she realises that she did something wrong she at least attempts to rectify it even at risk to herself.

* Points have to be given to Demand in the BadFuture. On seeing the Senshi from the past come to the future, and realizing that Sailor Moon is Neo-Queen Serenity's past self, he manages to incapacitate all of them and steal Sailor Moon before anyone can fight. When Sailor Moon awakens in Serenity's dress, she finds that she can't transform, making the crystal useless. Also, Demand makes it clear that he's EntitledToHaveYou. If King Endymion hadn't been able to tell Tuxedo Kamen where to go and rescue Usagi, the Black Moon would have won then and there.

* Nehelenia's defeat in the Super S manga. She tried to steal the Silver Imperium Crystal from Super Sailor Moon, and, naturally, it didn't work.

* In the episode where Jadeite runs a gym and a spa, he actually ''does'' manage to gather some energy for the Dark Kingdom.

* Also, Umino dives in at the last minute to save Naru from the youma attack, [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBaadass [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass getting injured in the process]].



* The subsequent XanatosSpeedChess that Zoicite and Kunzite instigate, on seeing a new Senshi rescue the others. They trace Mamoru, who is still injured, to his apartment and ask for LetsFightLikeGentlemen for the rainbow crystals. Normally Mamoru is a CombatPragmatist who wouldn't risk a fight with a bleeding shoulder, but he can't resist the temptation of getting all the crystals and his memory back, and it's hinted that the Dark Kingdom may try to corner him anyway if he refuses. Then when Mamoru shows up, and puts the crystals down and prepares to fight, Kunzite takes them away "for sakekeeping".
* Despite the fact that she doesn't like Mamoru, and he's always mocked her, Usagi insists on following him when she finds out he's bleeding. This ends up saving them because Zoicite nearly burns Mamoru alive in an elevator, and Usagi decides to transform.



* Before the brainwashed Tuxedo Kamen attacks, Usagi nearly incapacitates a youma posing as a hair stylist.

* Despite getting drained of energy for a few minutes, Rei and Ami recover and transform to fight the monster.
* Sailor Moon versus the first youma. Usagi saves Chibiusa from the attack, then recovers after Chibiusa forcibly awakens her. She saves her friends with a well-placed tiara, delivers a RousingSpeech and a Princess Halation.
* After that, Fiore versus the Senshi is a CurbStompBattle, even against Jupiter, who comes the closest to landing a blow on him. For a good reason, Sailor Moon has an OhCrap expression when Fiore confronts her.
* Given PaperThinDisguise, it's awesome that Fiore immediately recognizes Mamoru on seeing the rose that Tuxedo tosses. And he would have backed down from the fight, if not for the Kisenian flower's influence.



* Mamoru breaking out of the glass tank that's healing him to save Usagi. He does so by tossing a rose at Fiore. This makes Fiore back off long enough for Sailor Moon to get a HeroicSecondWind and use the Silver Crystal to redirect the asteroid.



* Naru trying to protect Umino from the MonsterOfTheDay when it turns out he's the episode's target. Think of it: she's a totally defenseless 15-year-old schoolgirl who can barely do anything against a monster, ''but she refuses to leave her boyfriend alone and at its mercy''.

** Shingo has to be credited for his CharacterDevelopment in that episode. He's genuinely sorry about breaking Mika's doll, and his first attempt is to write an apology note. He immediately goes to apologize to her when Usagi confronts him. Then, when Mika won't listen to his in-person apology, thanks to a youma possessing her, he takes Usagi's suggestion to make a present for Mika, a clay Sailor Moon doll. When he sees a youma burst out of Mika's doll and drain her of energy, he immediately dives to her rescue despite not knowing the exact circumstances. While this does nothing, given the youma knocks him out, it was extremely brave of Shingo. Also, the present idea works in that when Mika awakens she sees it and forgives Shingo.



* Also, Umino dives in at the last minute to save Naru from the youma attack, [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBaadass getting injured in the process]].



* Kunzite and Zoicite's final gambit in the arc. They have Zoicite dress as Sailor Moon and engaging in EngineeredHeroics, which confuses ''everyone'', so that the Senshi and Tuxedo Kamen attempt to rush to the doppelganger's rescue when it seems the Dark Kingdom has captured "her". (The only one who doesn't fall for it is Minako, because she overhears Usagi's frustrated sobs that someone else is doing her job.) The Senshi for their trouble get trapped and nearly killed, while Zoicite stabs Tuxedo Kamen with an icicle so that he can't fight. It's one case where in the dub, it made more sense with the gender-flipped Zoycite because "her" voice and Sailor Moon's are eerily similar.



* Before the brainwashed Tuxedo Kamen attacks, Usagi nearly incapacitates a youma posing as a hair stylist.



* Yuuichirou follows up on his previous episode by throwing himself into danger to protect Rei not once, but twice!

* Episode 45 has several but the quintessential one for fans is when a badly beaten and dying Sailor Mars seemingly lies lifeless after having taken down one of the DD Girls (from inside an ice mound, something in itself pretty awesome). The last remaining DD Girl threatens Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars grabs her enemy's vine-like arm, and shoots flame up it incinerating her. A good deal of awesome comes from the delivery:

** Usagi anticipating that
the journey to the Dark Kingdom base may be everyone's last adventure, and engaging in TheLastDance. Especially since Usagi, TheHeart and a ray of sunshine, reveals [[WiseBeyondTheirYears she's fully aware of the stakes]] long before the Senshi become a DwindlingParty. She cooks for her family and tells Rei that she ought to kiss Yuurichou before they go. Mars later admits, while dying, that Usagi was right about the last part.

** Also before this, knowing full well that she's going to die fighting the last two DD Girls, Mars cheerfully tells Sailor Moon ItHasBeenAnHonor and promises with a laugh that she won't die.

She's spent most of the episode crying and whining that she doesn't want to fight, and when cornered by Kigaan with Luna ordering her to transform, declares "I don't wanna live like this anymore!

* There's an understated moment in episode 18 that doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. Two girls from Shingo's school go to Usagi and tell her that Shingo rudely rejected and broke a gift from one of his classmates, Mika, a dollmaker whose gift was a handcrafted porcelain doll that recently won a local competition, and Shingo didn't even apologize to her. The fact that he was being teased by some older boys about it as Mika was giving him the doll doesn't excuse what happened. We don't know if the girls are Mika's friends or classmates, but they both felt that Shingo's behavior was unacceptable and told an older girl, his sister, about it because they thought she was the person to go to. Usagi completely believes the girls and doesn't try to excuse Shingo's actions or ask if maybe Mika did something to tick him off, and tells the girls she will definitely do something about it. True to her word, Usagi absolutely made sure Shingo did what he could to make up for his behavior, regardless of why it happened: she confronts Shingo that night, [[OutGambitted swiftly threatens to tell the Tsukino parents what he did]] and she personally takes Shingo to Mika's latest doll exhibition so he will apologize to her.

* And right before that, there's [[spoiler: Saphir]]. Who could have [[spoiler: easily stayed behind with the HFT-ed Ayakashi/Specter Sisters after having ''barely'' escaped from Wiseman]], but [[spoiler: chose to try exposing the truth about Wiseman to his brother.]] brother]]. While this ''did'' finish with [[spoiler: Saphir's death]], it shows that [[spoiler: he's got balls of steel]].



* Three words from Haruka: "[[GratuitousEnglish Show is over]]." She and Michiru had been dominating at the local dating game contest but they step out after it stops being a game in order to allow the serious competitors a chance to win.

** Which becomes still more awesome (and simultaneously TearJerker) when Haruka [[spoiler: calmly tells Sailor Moon that "well, it's up to you now", then takes Eudial's gun and shoots herself, ripping out her own heart crystal and proving her hunch (that ''both'' of them were Talisman holders); it becomes the Space Sword.]]

** At the conclusion of the IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight, Hotaru/Sailor Saturn appears by literally ''burning Mistress Nine away from the inside''. The Saturn symbol breaking through the Death Busters' star was very effective.

** Going to this end of the arc, one sees [[BewareTheSillyOnes a much-smarter side to Fish Eye]] than anyone would've thought considering Fish Eye is the [[{{Crossdresser}} crossdressing]], AmbiguouslyGay one of the Trio who went after all the men. After being told by Mamoru (whom he'd been targeting) that something in "her" was missing, [[ArmorPiercingQuestion he actually starts thinking serious thoughts]]. [[spoiler:Which then leads to him conducting a snap experiment on Tiger's Eye. When no Dream Mirror comes out, this confirms Fish's TomatoSurprise hunch, which Zirconia eventually confirms: ''they're not human'', like they genuinely thought up until then.]]

* Actually, that mini-arc was a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for ''all'' the Inner Senshi. Aside of Mako-chan, we have Rei/Mars [[spoiler: refusing to abandon a captured Michiru/Neptune and killing the captor mook with one absolutely ''precise'' shot of her Flame Sniper]], Minako/Venus [[spoiler: plowing through many mooks to rescue Setsuna/Pluto from them, then using a Venus Love Me Chain to keep them from falling into an abyss]], and ''especially'' Ami/Mercury [[spoiler: taking a beating from the mook but refusing to cry or collapse as she searches for its weak point, leaving Haruka/Uranus speechless when she questions Ami and she replies "This... this is ''my'' fighting style!" Followed up with Uranus shielding Mercury with her body and calmly telling her, "Please hurry up, I can't stay here forever."]] Yeah, I know [[spoiler: all of them get caught by Nehelenia and Usagi/Moon ultimately saves the day]], but... WOW.

* Episode 191, when Sailor Gamer had defeated Mars, Jupiter and Venus, and was about to kill Sailor Mercury. Mercury repeats to herself over and over that she won't be beaten, then shouts [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "...this is is not a game!!"]] [[TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential She then explodes into battle aura]], [[spoiler:something that in the manga, only Usagi can do]]. Just as she's about to die, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids Star Gentle Uterus]] [[ShockingSwerve comes from left field.]]

* By the last episode of the series, Usagi has witnessed every one of her friends ''and'' her lover [[spoiler:die by the hand of Sailor Galaxia, who is possessed by Chaos, the source of all evil and of every previous season's BigBad. However, refusing to fight Sailor Chaos because she refuses to hurt the innocent Galaxia, Usagi instead offers her hand in friendship to her enemy(who is the ''source of all evil''), and essentially defeats the galaxy's most powerful being by believing in the good in her. Then she helps resurrect every Sailor senshi in the galaxy and return them to their planets. And she does this ''naked'']]. It's made even more awesome with knowledge of nudity being a sign of ''purity'' in Japan.

* In the manga version of the Dark Kingdom saga, a brainwashed Makoto try and steal the Silver Crystal. It's Usagi against the super strong Makoto, she's doomed, right? Cue Minako knocking Makoto out [[OneHitKO with a single kick]], after a FlashStep.

* From the manga, the two encounters between Sailor Venus and Beryl. One was during the fall of the Silver Millennium, the other was during the series proper. Both times, Venus ''skewered Beryl'' with the symbol of her authority as leader of the Four Guardian Soldiers, a sword almost as tall as her ''tougher than diamond [[NoKillLikeOverkill and poisonous to boot]]''.

* Nehelenia's defeat in the Super S manga. She tried to steal the Silver Imperium Crystal from Super Sailor Moon, and, naturally, it didn't work. It leads to a moment where Usagi and Mamoru embrace, and in that embrace, the two are able to take back the crystal as they combine their love and their power. Creator/NaokoTakeuchi [[{{Badass}} weaponized]] [[ThePowerofLove a romantic embrace.]] It gets even better as Sailor Moon delivers a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Nehelenia in her OneWingedAngel form.
