* Hiro Protagonist, on a dinghy, getting into a gun fight with an ''aircraft carrier''. And ''winning''. Well, I guess [[IncrediblyLamePun it pays to listen to Reason]].
* Hiro [[spoiler:saved the Metaverse and all the hackers connected to it from a LogicBomb... then used its structure to ''advertise his brand-new network security service to the people he just saved'']].
* Hiro and Raven have a huge swordfight, on motorcycles, traveling at supersonic speeds, ''on the internet.'' RuleOfCool ''personified.''
* Raven's moment is, without a doubt, the moment Hiro discovers [[spoiler:he carries a nuclear bomb on his motorcycle's sidecar wired to his vitals]]. As the badass page puts it so succinctly, "He no longer has to worry about being the baddest motherfucker in the world. The position is taken."
* YT solving a hostage situation by ''jumping'' out of the BigBad's helicopter, catching then dangling from the helicopter on a 'poon above a freeway then falling the ''rest'' of the way onto a car. Finally, she disables the 'copter as it lands to get her. How? She's read ''Literature/MobyDick''.
* When she kicked the tablet out of the helicopter.
