* Going after Loren he takes an express elevator to escape and Oleg believes there's no way to catch him. [[http://youtu.be/jGuAYbKshPc?t=11m30s Boss ''growls,'' "Fuck. That," jumps on a large ornament and starts blowing away Morningstar like a, well...like a boss and orders Oleg to knock it loose. He does so and in mid fall Boss blows away a thug, before flattening Loren with the steel ball s/he was clinging to all the way down the tower.]]

* It was revealed that Saints Row The Third has a sprint button, but the company calls it the Awesome button. Why? Well, if you hold the button to hijack someone, you dropkick them out of the car. Yes, sprinting to the side of the car will have the player ''fucking dropkick the driver, sending said driver out the car through the other side.'' Doing it in front has you ''hijacking from the front''. Awesome indeed.

* Hell, the opening mission 'When Good Heists Go Bad' qualifies as this. All down to the amazing way the Saints steal the vault, survive an ambush against endless waves of SWAT's and the penultimate scene where the Boss has to keep the police and the Syndicate at bay with nothing but his/her fully upgraded Krukov. The music helps add a touch of that awesomeness too, and sets the tone of the game as a whole.

* One of the first missions has you protecting Pierce. Using a rocket launcher from a helicopter had been done, but then The Boss needs to snipe from a building. Simply shooting from the roof isn't good enough, so s\he bungee jumps off the side and uses a sniper rifle while hanging from a building.

* The Saints escape from the Syndicate by jumping out of a plane; with Boss catching Shaundi mid air, looks normal, until it comes around to attack them. Boss abandons Shaundi in freefall and jumps back onto the plane to stop it from killing them both, before again falling and catching Shaundi, proving his/her credentials as a [[MagnificentBastard fucking asshole]].

* The Saints escape from the Syndicate by jumping Falling out of a plane; with Boss catching Shaundi mid air, looks normal, until it comes around to attack them. Boss abandons Shaundi in freefall cargo plane, surrounded by huge numbers of crates and jumps back onto falling vehicles ({{Lampshaded}} by the Boss, "Did other planes dump their cargo too?") and gun-firing mooks, two people and one parachute. You manage to catch Shaundi...and notice the plane about to stop it from killing them both, before again falling and catching hit you. "Don't hate me for this later." [[spoiler:You ''drop'' Shaundi, proving release your parachute, shoot out the front windshield of the plane, and essentially free fall through the entire plane, shooting mooks as you go, snatching another parachute off one as you fly out the still open cargo door and then proceed to re-catch Shaundi.]] Holy crap.
** Shaundi gets one when she [[WhatTheHellHero calls out]] Boss for this stunt.
-->You're a fucking asshole!
** The mission later gets a sequel of sort in Air Steelport. Similar setting, except you're doing it [[spoiler:''in a falling tank'' shooting S.T.A.G. commandos, other falling tanks, and a few [=VTOLs=] as well!]]
-->[[Series/TheATeam I love it when a plan comes together!]]
** That part of the mission is proceeded by the Boss breaking into the STAG's plane, by free falling from
his/her credentials as plane onto their plane, [[MadeOfIron bouncing along the top of it for a [[MagnificentBastard fucking asshole]].couple of feet]], until he/she grabs a hatch and sneaks into the plane.



** And that, ladies and gentlemen, is ''Saints Row'' in a [[{{Pun}} nutshell.]] A button that's only function is to hit people in the nuts. Truly we are living in a glorious, utopian society.



* In a second-act mission, you have a mid-air battle in a tank.

* A bit of a meta-moment, but there comes a point where you have bought every single upgrade in the game. What does this do for you? Complete immunity to all forms of damage. For added effect, dress up like a superhero.

* The early mission "Party Time". You need to acquire a new headquarters, and a large penthouse owned by the Syndicate would be perfect. How do you take it over? By parachuting out of a helicopter, landing on the roof during a pool party, and shooting the place up while making your way to the elevator to let your homies up. The kicker? You do all this ''while [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic "Power"]] by Music/KanyeWest plays in the background.''

** The Mission Ho Boat can also be seen call back to the Brotherhood mission The Enemy of my Enemy, in which you have to sneak on board of a ship and steal a shipment after fighting of waves of enemies. Only this time you can do it with an oversized minigun.
