* Why of course, the most iconic part of the franchise: The lightsaber. It's a sword... but it's also a laser!

-> '''Generally cynical [[http://community.livejournal.com/roguereport/4592.html#cutid1 recap]] of TheThrawnTrilogy:''' For the second time, Zahn also sets up information for later novels of his already; this time, mentioning to Pellaeon his plan for creating a clone that will be grown fast to childhood, and then let to grow naturally for the last ten years. Possibly on a hidden, secure planet in the Unknown Regions.\\
People who have not yet read ''[[HandOfThrawn Spectre of the Past]]'' and ''[[HandOfThrawn Vision of the Future]]'' should take note of this. People who have read them will undoubtedly get that really awesome spine-shiver that is accompanied with an "OMG that's so awesome" feeling. You know the one I'm talking about. Yes you do.

[[folder:Episode One]]
* Even if you were spoiled to hell and back by the advertising blitz beforehand: when that door opens, and Darth Maul is standing there looking like Satan himself -- and he busts out the ''double-bladed lightsaber'' --was there any other reaction than, "Holy crap"?
** What happens directly after Maul shows up adds a lot to the awesomeness. When the doors open to reveal Maul, Amidala and her troops look good and ready to wet themselves, until the Jedi step forward...
---> '''Qui-Gon Jinn:''' "We'll handle this."
---> '''Amidala:''' ''(who can't wait to get the hell away from Maul)'' "...we'll take the long way (around)."
* When Obi Wan [[spoiler: jumped out of the shaft in the Theed palace and chopped Darth Maul in half]].
* Minor example: "I will not condone a course of action that could lead us to war."
** A bigger one later: "I will not defer. I've come to you to resolve this conflict ''now.'' I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!"
* Padme and her handmaidens really can't be separated in this episode; a CMOA for one of them is a CMOA for all of them. That being said, Sabe's quick thinking and ability to keep her cool when the slightest misstep will spell all of their deaths ''and'' she's not able to openly consult with her queen? BadassNormal.
* The pod-race finale. Sure, it was more the folly of Sebulba rather than direct actions on the part of Anakin, but just watching Sebulba's ginormous pod engines smash into an oncoming rock at 500 MPH as Anakin's tiny little thing cruises majestically on by was certainly a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* Obi-Wan out of the gate vs Maul.
* The duel between Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi & Qui-Gon Jinn is now and will forever remain the Crowning Moment of Lightsaber awesomeness in all of Star Wars.
** Not just the duel itself, but Duel Of The Fates as well.
* Little Anakin taking down the Droid Control Ship with nobody but R2-D2 backing him up.
* At the very end of the credits, Darth Vader can be heard breathing, foreshadowing what's to come.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Two]]
* Although Yoda's popularity has never waned since the original trilogy, the moment he dropped his cane and pulled out a lightsaber in ''[[StarWars Attack of the Clones]]'' forever cemented him as being as {{Badass}} as he is wise.
** He doesn't just ''pull'' it out, oh no, that's not cool enough. He puts away the cane, then opens his robe and ''Forces the lightsaber from inside his robe to his open hand. That'' is what [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]] are made of.
* "This party's over.", which is followed by an awesome battle between dozens of Jedi and hundreds of robots (and later clone troopers), in which the one speaking (Mace Windu) defeats another {{Badass}}, Jango Fett.
** Mace facing down Dooku is awesome but it goes into CrowningMomentOfAwesome territory when it is revealed that dozens of the spectators in the audience are Jedi.You can see why Mace has the initials for "Bad Motherfucker" on his lightsaber.
* Let's talk about Count Dooku for a minute. Dude kicked the asses of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi ''simultaneously'', and still had enough juice to give Yoda a decent fight. Granted that he'd probably have lost if the duel had continued, but the number of people who could last even that long has got to be awfully small, and y'know, he's played by Creator/ChristopherLee.
** The guy ''salutes'' Yoda before they go at it.
** Yoda hopping around like a demon frog on acid when he was fighting Count Dooku counts too.
** The best part was that ''Yoda wasn't trying to win.'' He was playing around, trying to buy time for the clones to arrive and save Obi-Wan and Anakin. But he still was winning.
** The mere fact that the dwarf Yoda just about bested 6"4" Dooku is awesome
*** Size matters not.
* The very end of the film, with the clone troops forming up for review, Palpatine standing on the balcony... cue the Imperial March. That's right, it's a [[WhamLine Wham]] {{Leitmotif}}!
* The ending of the stadium battle when the Jedi seem defeated, but refuse to surrender.Then Yoda and an entire army of troops appear out of nowhere and save them. The phrase BigDamnHeroes has rarely fit better
** Agreed. The whole battle of Geonosis was just awesome to say the least. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rHvrLlQSWI&feature=fvst This]] makes it even more awesome, in a way.
* Padmé proved herself awesome in the stadium battle when she climbs up the pillar she is tied to and fights off the Nexu. Even getting slashed across the back couldn't stop her. This all happens while the two Jedi look on in wonder. "She seems to be on top of things." No kidding, Obi.
* Obi-Wan's fight with Jango Fett including the {{OhCrap}} moment of "Oh, not good!".
* Towards the beginning of the film, when Obi-Wan and Anakin are chasing after Zam, Anakin takes a short cut. He pulls to a halt, and for a few moments, it looks as though they've lost her. Obi-Wan looks annoyed, but Anakin doesn't. Then Anakin gives his master a casual "excuse me" before ''jumping over the side of the speeder, free-falling through traffic, and landing on Zam's speeder''. '''''And he timed it just right.''''' This scene was obviously made for anyone still in doubt that Anakin is the Chosen One.
** The best part: Obi-Wan looks ''annoyed'' when he does it, and simply states, "I hate it when he does that." Meaning that this isn't the first time Anakin's pulled an awesome stunt like this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Three]]
* The quiet opening, a single Star Destroyer rolling across the screen to the sound of lone drumbeats. Two small fighters race across the screen, and the most bombastic and cheer-inducing take on the Force Theme ''ever'' blares across the screen. We know ''exactly'' who these two Jedi Knights are, we know ''exactly'' what they're about to do, and we know in the space of a single scene that this is the ''movie we've been waiting twenty years for''.
** To quote the novelization; "Though this is the end of the age of heroes, it has saved its best for last."
* The Battle of Coruscant was one big Moment of Awesome for Anakin. He tricks two high-quality homing missiles tailing him into blowing each other up. He is able to pilot his interceptor with such precision that he crushes one of those tiny little buzz droids between his fighter and Obi-Wan's, causing no damage to either vehicle and utterly destroying the droid. And he does this at the risk of getting a buzz droid on his own fighter. When told the hangar shields are still up on the ''Invisible Hand'', he isn't worried at all. He just blasts the generator like nobody's business. Later, he kills Dooku in what quickly becomes [[CombatByChampion single combat]]. After that, he carries the unconscious Obi-Wan on his back like he's as light as a rag doll, and finally, he safely crash-lands half a cruiser that was never designed to be able to land safely.
** The duel with Dooku is made even better in the novelization. It's told from his perspective, and it shows him going from a complete SmugSnake through his OhCrap moment when he realizes that Obi-Wan and Anakin [[IAmNotLeftHanded aren't fighting like he expected]] to his final realization of his betrayal by Sidious.
** "Under the circumstances I'd say the ability to fly this thing is irrelevant."
** "I think we lost something."
** [[DangerDeadpan "Not to worry, we are still flying half a ship."]]
** The entire sequence from the movie's opening to the landing on Coruscant is just one ludicrously extended CrowningMomentOfAwesome, ending with [[DeadpanSnarker "Another happy landing."]]
** As the novelization states: ''"This is Anakin Skywalker's masterpiece."''
** Yes, but none of that stands up to R2-D2. He's cornered by two EliteMooks and probably about to get shot. So what does he do? He squirts them with oil, engages his booster jets, and ''[[KillItWithFire sets them on fire]]''. And then [[UnflinchingWalk (st)rolls away while they explode]].
** Anakin [[KickTheSonOfABitch slaughtering the Separatist Council]]. In the novelization, he's also cracking [[VideoGame/{{Blood}} Caleb-esque]] jokes while doing it.
* Obi-Wan has two: defeating (along with Yoda) an entire clone trooper company, and chopping off three of Anakin's limbs with a single strike.
** The entirety of his final duel with General Grievous on Utapau, but ''especially'' the climax which saw him hanging over a ledge and he used the Force to shoot the general with a blaster (complete with [[BondOneLiner irreverent comment]] afterward)? When Luke's hanging over a precipice, it means he's had the stuffing kicked out of him, and he's barely going to survive this encounter. When Obi-Wan is hanging over a precipice, it means he's about to kick ass.
*** His BondOneLiner also makes for one hell of a BrickJoke going all the way back to ''ANewHope'', which counts as a meta moment of awesome for George Lucas.
--->'''Obi-Wan''' (after killing Grievous): "So uncivilized."
--->'''Obi-Wan''' (teaching Luke to use a lightsaber): "Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age."
* Windu also gets one in ''Revenge of the Sith'', in his duel with Palpatine. He even would have won, had Anakin not shown up. The dialogue that preceded was also awesome (for both!):
-->'''Mace:''' In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you are under arrest.
-->'''Palpatine:''' I ''am'' the Senate!
-->'''Mace:''' Not yet!
** Only Palpatine was most likely toying with Windu the whole time, as he had just butchered the three other Jedi Masters.
** The above dialogue is even better in the trailer:
--->'''Mace:''' In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you are under arrest.
--->'''Palpatine:''' Are you threatening me, Master Jedi? *Ignites lightsaber and lunges. Cue the most badass and ominous music ever used in a ''Star Wars'' trailer*
** Ah, but then we would not have seen Palpatine become the LargeHam he was ''born'' to be. Palpatine announces the birth of TheEmpire and the death of freedom to the Senate... who respond with ''a standing ovation''. Your Majesty, your ascent to {{Magnificent Bastard}}hood is complete. The horrified-sounding [[OminousLatinChanting ominous chorus]] in the background doesn't hurt, either.
** That duel is explained in the EU. The Sith like to use a subversive tactic called Dun Moch, where they mock their Jedi opponents and telepathically push base emotions into their minds, which disrupts their ability to call on the Force. That's why Palpatine laughed at Yoda and hissed at Mace Windu. The mental aspect of Windu's fighting style allowed him to reflect those emotions back at Palpatine, while Yoda had no such defense. Mace had legitimately defeated Palpatine until Anakin showed up. And Mace lived while the other Masters died because his style, Vapaad, made him the absolute best duelist in the galaxy, possibly the best throughout the franchise's entire canon history. Only Dooku and Yoda ever fought him to a standstill, and that was before he made a style so vicious and powerful that an uncautious user would be drawn into the Dark Side. No telling what a Sith could do with it, but Vapaad died with Mace. He actually had to kill the only other two people he taught it to because they couldn't handle it.
** In the novelization, it's stated that Palpatine and Mace stalemated, with Anakin being the one to decide the outcome. At one point, Anakin observes and can only make out the blades of their lightsabers, they're moving so fast that TheChosenOne ''can't keep up with their movements''.
** Yoda's decapitating of the clones about to kill him on Kashyyyk. One moment, he's on the floor, seemingly defenseless after feeling the deaths of so many Jedi, and the clones are readying their blasters. The next, the clones are lying dead on the floor and Yoda is deactivating his lightsaber.
** How about the fantastic confrontation in Palpatine's office?
---> '''Palpatine:''' At last the Jedi are no more...
---> '''Yoda:''' Not if anything to say about it ''I have''! *Force pushes Palpatine so hard he goes flying across the room and lands ass over head*
---> '''Yoda:''' At an end your rule is... and not short enough it was.
** The fact that the unflappable Palpatine tries to run away rather than fight is a good indicator of how badass Yoda is.
*** "If so powerful you are, why leave?" (Draws and ignites lightsaber )
** Before that, Yoda casually knocks out Palpatine's two guards with a wave of his hand.
* Heck, the entire Obi-Wan vs. Anakin and Yoda vs. Palpatine sequence in ''Revenge of the Sith'' was a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Especially considering the former was done in ''real time'', no speed-up required.
** According to the special features on the DVD, when Ewan [=McGregor=] and Hayden Christensen finished their fight, ''the entire crew broke out in applause.''
** In the Yoda vs. Palpatine fight, when Master Yoda takes that first step to shove the two massive great blobs of Sith lightning back at the guy that fired them, there's a moment, just a moment, when you think that, despite the ForegoneConclusion and all, he might still win, somehow, because he's so awesome he can somehow overwrite RealLife history.
* A small moment, and one easily missed as it occurs between scenes of Order 66 being carried out, but an example of why Clones aren't just cannon fodder: a single clone trooper takes out two spider droids, where previously they had been annihilating entire squads in seconds, by jumping on their backs and shooting them at full auto from above.
* At the end, all it took was Vader taking one deep mechanical breath and every hair on your body stood on end, followed by one of the most heartwrenching [[BigNo Big No's]] ever. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6bEs3dxjPg]]
** Or the look on Vader's face as the mask lowers, eyes widening as he realizes what his world will look like from then on...
** The first ''LegoStarWars'' made this scene even more awesome; instead of the BigNo, Vader ''goes on a rampage.''
* The very ending. Binary Sunset. There could have been no better way to link both trilogies.
* Palpatine's duel with Yoda. Palpatine literally dismantles the Senate to fight Yoda, and the Sith Lord cackles the whole way through the fight.
** "[[RobotChicken Then I threw the senate at him! The whole senate! True story!]]"
* Say what you will about Anakin, but marching up the steps of the Jedi Temple at the head of the entire 501st is pure win.
* [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene Palpatine and Anakin at the opera]]. Sheer creepy, slightly {{Squick}}y win.
* Obi-Wan, alone, nearly unarmed and without backup, facing up to a room full of bad guys including one with four Lightsabers. Han Solo would be proud.
** His entrance in that scene: "Hello there." Best entrance ever. Then dropping that huge thing on Grievous' guards. Then strolling on, twirling his lightsabre like a walking stick.
*** Grievous: "I've been trained in your Jedi arts by Count Dooku." Obi-Wan might have been thinking: "Good, because I trained the Jedi who killed Count Dooku." (In the movie, he ''might'' be thinking it. In the novelisation, he ''says'' it in his own inimitable DeadpanSnarker way.)
** More: he wasn't trapped, ambushed, or backed into this situation. Obi-Wan Kenobi saw a huge hanger filled with droids, and with General Grevious, went "Hmm", and ''jumped down into the middle''.
* Though Grievous having four arms was slightly spoiled by the cartoon miniseries that bridged Episode II and Episode III, you have to admit that the way he advances towards Obi-Wan on Utapau, four lightsabers in his hands, all four of them spinning like saws as they carve up the floor, is a hell of a way to start a duel.
* Let's face it, the entire movie is a CMOA for Palpatine.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Four]]
* The opening shot of the Star Destroyer, which just keeps coming. The producers of ''Series/BlakesSeven'' saw that scene and realized that there was ''no way'' they could ever beat that on a police procedural budget.
** Made more impressive by setting up a contrast. First, we see the Blockade Runner go by, and it looks big and cool. And then we see what's chasing it...and the baseline for both "big" and, arguably, "cool" just got blown out of the water.
** Amusingly, George Lucas has stated that he knew he couldn't afford to do good special effects for every shot in the movie, so for the most part, he just did very fast, very short shots that would keep people from seeing the wires or anything along those lines... except that he deliberately spent a huge amount of money on getting the best possible special effects work he could for the opening shot, because he knew, in his own words, "If the audience bought that shot, then I had them."
* "Sorry about the mess."
* "I have you now." (Though awesome, [[BigDamnHeroes the Millennium Falcon intervenes a second later]])
* "I've been waiting for you Obi Wan; we meet again at last. The circle is now complete; when I left you I was but the learner, now ''I'' am the ''master''."
** "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."
*** Even better if you have the Original Trilogy Delux Edition and you learn the ENTIRE quote:
--> "Should my blade find its mark, you shall cease to exist, but if you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine"
* "You're all clear, kid, now let's blow this thing and go home!" Welcome to the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo.
** The best part is when you realize that up until he turned around, Han Solo saw all the rebels on that base as walking corpses and his last scene with Luke was a goodbye to a dead man. That CrowningMomentOfAwesome was probably the first time Han had felt optimism in years.
** One word, two syllables: '''Kaboom.''' This was on Luke's official first day of joining the Rebel Alliance. "So, I took out a squadron of stormtroopers on my first day. What did you do?" "Oh, nothing much. I just blew up the fracking ''Death Star''."
* Princess Leia Organa, barely a minute out of her cell, taking over her own rescue: "Somebody has to save our skins." "Into the garbage chute, flyboy!"
** "[[DeadpanSnarker We, uh, ran into some old friends.]]"
* [[RedemptionEqualsDeath "Stand by. Stand by."]]
** [[spoiler: To elaborate, in the ExpandedUniverse, we find out that the gunner, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone appalled at himself for destroying Despayre and Alderaan]], thereby making him one of the worst mass-murderers in history, kept delaying in the hopes that something, ''anything'' could stop him from blowing up Yavin IV. He gets his wish. Even if you don't accept ExpandedUniverse material, given how long he delays despite having a firing solution, it is a decent AlternativeCharacterInterpretation.]]
* Vader during the Moff meeting aboard the Death Star. The only thing that we've seen him do so far is strangle a guy and yell at a young woman. After "the man in black" decries the Death Star as insignificant next to the Force, Admiral Conan Antonio Motti decides to insult his beliefs. Vader merely lifts a hand and the guy starts choking, saying that "I find your lack of faith disturbing." We see in this that despite first impressions, Vader is actually ''dangerous,'' not just Tarkin's lackey.
** Remember, this was the ''first'' use of the Force in film, after it was introduced, which made it all the more intimidating in the day. Obi-wan calls it "an energy field" surrounding people, binds the galaxy, and other pseudo-religious harmonious fluff, and the audience was like, "Oh okay, old guy, that's cool, let's get back to the space opera", then an Imperial officer starts talking smack, and Vader suddenly introduces ''practical villainous applications'' of said energy field. Dark Side of the Force indeed.
** And the story it's from is one of Sci-Fi's Big Three. Given that [[StarTrek the other]] [[DoctorWho two members]] of that group's [[BeliefMakesYouStupid attitudes]] [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions on religion]] were often condescending at best (and one of them might still be at times), this moment can feel really darn satisfying if you're religious. Even in science fiction, religion and mysticism can still have a place in the world, and its practitioners can not only be justified in it (midi-chlorians debatably aside), but powerful by it as well.
** Also Tarkin's reaction: first a sort of intellectual curiosity at seeing Vader in action, then he decides enough is enough and yanks him back into line.
*** And Vader's reaction to Tarkin: the subtext being not that of an inferior responding to the order of a superior, but of grudging respect: "I would really just as soon choke Motti to death as look at him, but I have to work with you, so I'll honor your request to lay off."
** How about Tarkin having the balls to actually ''threaten'' Darth Vader, implying that something bad will happen if Vader's plan to let the Falcon lead them to the Rebel base doesn't work.
* Threepio's gotten a reputation as a bit of a Chew Toy, but in Episode Four he really shows a great deal of competence. Despite his constant complaining, when the chips are down he's able to pull it together and get him and his comrades out of danger. When meeting Uncle Ben and Luke Skywalker for the first time, Threepio calmly manages to not only get himself sold but also bring Artoo into the Skywalker household, all without resorting to hysterics. Then, on the Death Star, after being discovered by the Imperial Force, Threepio manages to perform a BavarianFireDrill which allows him and Artoo to escape once again. He may be a bit over emotional and frantic, but Threepio is still dependable when he needs to be.
* Vader wiping out most of the Rebel Fighters during the Assault on The Death Star. We know he's skilled with a lightsaber with his battle against Obi-Wan, but we then go out and see him in his personal TIE fighter and effortlessly destroy the fighters in Gold and Red Squadron, including the leader of the squads and Biggs, without breaking a sweat. Only Luke had the skill with the Force to avoid his blasts.
** And it's revealed in novels like ''ShadowsOfTheEmpire'' that he goes and does this on missions for fun. Blasting and destroying ace Rebel pilots with zero effort. Dogfighting is his way of relaxing, and he normally has a dozen kills under his belt once he's done, it's said.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Five]]
* Luke single-handedly taking down an Imperial Walker by using a grappling hook to climb up underneath it, slice it open with his lightsaber, and tossing a thermal detonator inside. When you remember that Luke barely had any training as a Jedi at this point, then you'll realize Emperor Palpatine was right to be scared of Luke and how ''really'' powerful he could become if he was fully trained.
** [[RobotChicken What in the f**k is-]]
* "[[AsteroidThicket You're not actually taking us into an asteroid field, are you?!]]" Oh, hell ''yes'' he is.
** "NeverTellMeTheOdds," possibly the most badass line in the entire series.
* Luke informs Yoda that he's just not strong enough in the Force to raise his starfighter from the swamp. Yoda then raises the starfighter out of the swamp, accompanied by triumphant music and spirited beeping from R2-D2.
--->Luke: I don't believe it!
--->Yoda: ''That'' is why you fail.
** "Judge me by my size, do you?"
** Yoda has tons of cool lines. Another good one is "Do, or do not. There is no try."
*** Some of Yoda's lines have made it onto fortune cookies, as "Do or do not, there is no try" has been found along with other Yoda lines.
* "I love you." "I know."
** Especially since this line was an ad-lib by Harrison Ford.
* "No. ''I'' [[LukeIAmYourFather am your father]]." To this day, still one of the most epic and memorable plot twists in the history of cinema.
* "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
** "All too easy."
** [[YouHaveFailedMe "Apology accepted, Captain Needa."]]
*** This was also ''Needa's'' CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Just out maneuvered and outbluffed by Solo, Needa is tasked with explaining his failure to Vader, and there's no question in anyone's mind how [[YouHaveFailedMe Lord Vader deals with setbacks]]. What does he do? He flies himself to the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executor_(Star_Wars) Executor]]'' to stand before Vader, take full responsibility, and fall on his sword, sparing his ship and crew from the Sith Lord's wrath.
** "YouAreInCommandNow, ''Admiral'' Piett."
*** And just in case you don't know the context of the last one, Vader had just force choked the ''previous'' Admiral, which was on ''the other side of the ship'' from Vader. He gives Piett his promotion ''before'' the previous admiral hits the ground.
** "''No'' disintegrations." "As you wish..."
*** "[[Film/ThePrincessBride And that was when he realized...]]"
*** Especially when you consider Boba undoubtedly knows he's talking to the man who killed the man who killed his father.
** "I am altering the deal. ''Pray'' I don't alter it any further."
*** (Robot Chicken turns this into a CrowningMomentOfFunny [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7H-Q2eIYesU in its own right]].)
* What happens right ''after'' the line "I've just made a deal that'll keep the Empire out of here forever."
** It's a Trap!
** Darth Vader just force deflecting the blaster shots ''with his hand,'' no lightsaber necessary, then snatching Han's gun. You think you're going to be able to just shoot Darth Vader? Please!
** Imagine yourself as Han Solo for a moment. You've just outrun a bunch of Imperials and finally made your way to a small out of the way planet for a chance to rest and repair your ship. You've met up with an old friend of yours and are on the way to a nice meal with the possibility of romancing Leia a bit afterwards. And then you open the door to find none other than Darth Vader waiting for you. Do you look in disbelief to the friend who betrayed you? Turn and hightail it out of there with Leia and Chewie in tow? No. Without a single second of hesitation you immediately pull out your gun and ''start shooting that motherfucker.'' Further proof that Han is the biggest badass to ever swagger across the galaxy; too bad Vader has more than enough power with the Dark Side to make up for that.
** Then there's Chewbacca's truly epic roar. It's a real shame he didn't do that more often in the series.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLUTOGpJ2es entrance]] of the ''Executor''. We see it casting shadows on ''Star Destroyers! LIKE THAT BEHEMOTH FROM THE INTRO OF THE PREVIOUS FILM!''
** See also VisualEffectsOfAwesome, if only to reiterate the above (which is not hurt at all by the scene being the debut of [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome The Imperial freaking March]]). A good contender however is a later scene which provides a rear view of the ''Executor'' and shows that even its ''engine exhausts'' dwarf the nearby Star Destroyers.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Six]]
* "You have failed, your Highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me." Doesn't matter than the Emperor immediately got lightning happy, that was the moment the Good Guys ''won''. Probably the second greatest CrowningMomentOfAwesome in the entire series.
** Looking at the progression of events around that point, that scene ''is'' when the tables turned and the good guys started to win. After that declaration, the Shield Generator blew up, Executor was destroyed, and the Death Star Run into the reactor began. Everything began to fall apart for Palpatine.
** Just the fact that Luke's personal greatest triumph is then, when he wins without fighting - when he wins ''by'' not fighting. We saw earlier that he clearly has the courage to face giant monsters - we see here that he has a depth of ''emotional'' courage which runs every bit as deep. By believing, and by ''not'' acting, and by trusting in Anakin, he brought his father back.
** It's even more awesome when you look at the history of the series. [[MagnificentBastard Palpatine]] has had everything go according to his plan for over 30 years (and, if you go by the DarthPlagueis novel, ''since he became an adult.'') [[TheBadGuysWin He hasn't suffered a major loss in his entire life]], with even the destruction of the first Death Star not taking away his cool. Then Luke came in. He's the first person ever to do something the Emperor never expected-make him ''[[VillainousBreakdown lose his cool.]]''
* During the Battle of Endor, Green Leader aka Arvel Crynyd's fighter gets shot down. As his ship begins to break apart, the pilot manages to [[RammingAlwaysWorks crash it clean through]] the bridge of the ''Executor'', [[TakingYouWithMe causing it to lose all control and smash into the Death Star]]. ''Best. Death. Ever.''
** Not only that, but according to ExpandedUniverse, after the battle there was an ''award'' named after the pilot called the Crynyd Award, given for conspicuous bravery in space combat.
** The Rebels also named a captured Star Destroyer after the guy.
* Death Star battles seem to be powered by CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Watching Lando & Company come blasting out of Death Star 2 with their hair on fire is just awesome.
-->'''Lando''': [[BattleCry YAA-HAH!!]]
* Palpatine's "Oh, I'm afraid the deflector shield will be ''quite operational'' when your friends arrive..." It's just the way he says it, [[FauxAffablyEvil a mockery of a friendly old man's concern]].
** Also, absolutely everything else Palpatine says in that conversation, including but not limited to "''[[TheChessmaster Everything]]'' [[TheChessmaster that has transpired has done so according to]] ''[[TheChessmaster my]]'' [[TheChessmaster design]]".
*** Of course, he's talking to the guy whom he expressly stated he did not foresee being there.
* The Force Lightning assault has to be one for Palpatine. He shows up in the movie, and he's just a frail old man. Everyone is terrified of him, but you're never sure why. Then Luke throws his offer back in his face, and: "If you will not be turned...you will be DESTROYED!".
** And the best part about that is the way he says it. The entire movie his tone of voice has been, as someone stated previously, like a mockery of a kind old man because he is so assured in his belief that he will win. But when Luke refuses to turn, he drops that tone and so the way he says that line, how it is just dripping in pure cold hatred and evil... classic.
** If you watch the films in the order they were made, there's the impact of seeing the lightning for the first time. Palpatine gives some death threats etc, and you expect some big lightsaber fight or force choking or what have you. Instead, out of freaking nowhere he starts shooting LIGHTNING at Luke. While the lightning has been downgraded and made much more commonplace since then, back then not even Darth Vader could do it (now we know why, but the EU wasn't as developed at the time). It made the Emperor a grade-A badass.
** Keep in mind that the Emperor is suffering from a VillainousBreakdown because, for once, his plans are failing. [[MagnificentBastard That doesn't stop him being awesome.]]
** According to the novelization, the lightning was nothing less than a straight-up abomination of the Force, Palpatine using his sheer overwhelming hatred to break the very rules that bound the universe together. Consider that even in the prequels, we only see two characters who ever use it: Palpatine and his apprentice, Count Dooku.
* After Vader has failed repeatedly to lure his son to the Dark Side, he finally discovers Luke's {{Berserk Button}}:
-->Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for... Sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side, then ''perhaps she will''.
** The music cue that played at that moment especially made it powerful.
** Luke's cry of "[[BigNever Never]]!" and then nearly taking Vader's head off in the duel was also awesome.
*** Even better. Immediately after Luke's BigNever, Vader quickly turns in his direction with a rapid VaderBreath... Yes, Luke got ''Darth Vader'' to '''''gasp!'''''.
* Princess Leia choking Jabba to death in ''Return of the Jedi''. After he objectified her the way he did, she was able to turn the tables. The {{novelization}} of this scene makes it clear that she's calling on the Force to help her with it.
* The Emperor's arrival at the Death Star in ROTJ with a huge assembly of Imperial officers and stormtroopers awaiting in the hangar, a multitude of TIE fighters flying outside and the John Williams Imperial March blasting loud as his royal guards and then finally he disembarks from his shuttle.
** "[[OhCrap The emperor is not as forgiving as I am.]]"
* The first point-of -view shot of the ROTJ speeder bike chase.
* "Now witness the firepower of this '''fully armed and operational battle station!'''"
* [=C3PO=] has his CrowningMomentOfAwesome... it is, as befits him, rather subdued, but - when the Ewoks capture the "Pitiful little band", and they see their Golden God, and bow down to him - well, that's not it; it's a few moments later, when he speaks to the tribesmen, and Luke asks in surprise "Can you understand what they're saying?" and, of course, Threepio responds: "Oh yes, Master Luke... I am versed in over six million forms of communication!" ''Don't act so surprised, your highness.''
** Also, remember that [=C3PO=] has been complaining about the adventures he has been in, always being in danger, actually being nearly destroyed several times... but, in the end, he becomes the one that allows the Rebel victory, because it was his presence in all those adventures that allowed him to tell the Ewoks what was going on in the rest of the galaxy.
* Luke walking off the plank over the Sarlacc pit, turning, grabbing the edge, flipping back onto the skiff, catching the lightsaber Artoo fires from Jabba's sail barge, igniting it, and '''proceeding to kick ass'''.
** The buildup in that scene is awesomely constructed, especially the music, which was recycled for the teaser trailers for Phantom Menace, if you recall.
** "You should have bargained, Jabba. That's the last mistake you'll ever make." C'mon! How badass is that!?!
* '''THE ENTIRE BATTLE OF ENDOR IN SPACE'''. Some specific moments are
---> Lando: Yes, I said '''''closer!''''' Move as close you can, and engage those Star Destroyers at point blank range!
---> Ackbar: At that range we won't last long against those Star Destroyers!
---> Lando: We'll last longer than we will against that '''Death Star'''! ''And we might just take a few of them with us!''
** Commander Merrejk's total "Oh God we're dead" moment while Piett's shouting to "intensify the forward batteries" of the ''Executor'' and Merrejk sees off in the distance the out of control A-Wing coming straight for them.
---> Piett: ''Intensify the forward firepower!''
---> Merrejk: '''''TOO LATE!'''''
* With all the Luke/Vader action, it is easy to forget Han. In a flash of genius, he gets the men in the base to come out by pretending the Rebels have surrendered, only to jump them outside.
* The Ewoks' BigDamnHeroes moment when they rescue the rebels from the Empire.
** Though it must be admitted that the one stormtrooper who manages to actually laserblast one of those damn teddy bears always seems to get a cheer from the audience.
* Leia pretending to be badly hurt and luring two stormtroopers near so she could blast them away was awesome. Topped off by a callback of Han telling her he loves her, to which she responds "I know."
* Luke's first entrance into Jabba's Palace. The door slowly opens, and a lone robed figure stands there. Then he immediately starts striding purposefully into the darkness, pausing only to casually Force-choke a few guards that get in his way. The sequence is shot in such a way that the viewer knows a full-on Jedi beatdown is about to begin. The Hero's Journey is complete in that moment: Luke Skywalker left Tatooine a naive farmer, but he returned a Jedi.
** And then there's more evidence of that journey's impact when Jabba drops Luke into the Rancor pit. The slavering beast sets its sights on Luke, and within three minutes, Luke takes it down. With a [[ImprovisedWeapon bone.]]
* During the battle at the Sarlacc pit, Lando gets thrown off a skiff into the sand. Han, attempting to save him, gets his foot tangled in ropes hanging from the skiff, which keep him from getting thrown down as well. A tentacle grabs Lando and starts pulling him in, when Han gets a blaster from Chewie and blasts it, one-handed, hanging upside-down, and ''[[HandicappedBadass mostly blind]]''.
* Chewie along with two Ewoks taking control of a scout walker and turning the tide of the forest battle which had been going badly for the Ewoks. Also it allowed Han to use it to trick the remaining Imperials inside the bunker to open the doors.
** Chewie's Walker shooting out the other walker becomes a rallying point for the Ewoks. Whereas they had had trouble dealing with the troops and the walkers, this time around their attacks (making a walker slip and fall over a bunch of logs, doing a "nutcracker" on another) are much more effective. We see a bunch of primitive, tribal creatures actually hold their own against the baddest army in the galaxy. They had ''every'' reason to celebrate that night at the victory party.
* Remember that awesome "I love you./I know." from the previous episode? [[CallBack Called Back]] with a role-reverse during the Battle of Endor, and it was every bit as awesomely romantic then, too.
* The scene where Luke surrenders himself to Vader in ''Jedi'' and addresses him as "Father". When Vader prods Luke that he accepted the truth, Luke firmly responds "I accept the truth that you were once Anakin Skywalker, my father." With a simple turn of phrase, Luke shows Vader how he has grown from a boy who was capable of a HeroicBSOD upon hearing Vader's little emotional sucker punch to a mature man who accepts an uncomfortable truth ''his way''.
* Still failing to turn his son, Vader watches him get fried by the Emperor, and in a moment of clarity remembers the noble Jedi he was. He then owns the Emperor and seals the victory of the Rebels. Maybe the greatest CrowningMomentOfAwesome in all of ''StarWars''.
** Also, arguably, the only bit Lucas himself has in tying the original series to the prequel trilogy. Watch the death scene again, and it's arguable that Vader finally realizes that he was always whining about other people limiting him, but it was always him -- in staring at his ruined stump of a hand, just like Luke's, it's got to be a little apparent to him that Luke's been through almost exactly the same kind of life he had, but worse on every level, all without giving in to the Dark Side.
** This is even better in the NPR radio adaptation, with Brock Peters' incredible delivery in this exchange:
-->'''Palpatine:''' Put me down!
-->'''Vader:''' I will put you down. Down the reactor shaft! Down to your death!
-->'''Palpatine:''' I am your master!
-->'''Vader:''' Darth Vader's master, BUT NOT ANAKIN SKYWALKER'S!
* Luke gives his father a [[VikingFuneral proper send-off]], while the magical musical Force theme plays for the last time, and then we see people across the galaxy celebrating freedom. And two dead Jedi watch in approval... except there are actually three Jedi who can now rest knowing the evil they fought is gone.

[[folder:Episode One]]
* Even if you were spoiled to hell and back by the advertising blitz beforehand: when that door opens, and Darth Maul is standing there looking like Satan himself -- and he busts out the ''double-bladed lightsaber'' --was there any other reaction than, "Holy crap"?
** What happens directly after Maul shows up adds a lot to the awesomeness. When the doors open to reveal Maul, Amidala and her troops look good and ready to wet themselves, until the Jedi step forward...
---> '''Qui-Gon Jinn:''' "We'll handle this."
---> '''Amidala:''' ''(who can't wait to get the hell away from Maul)'' "...we'll take the long way (around)."
* When Obi Wan [[spoiler: jumped out of the shaft in the Theed palace and chopped Darth Maul in half]].
* Minor example: "I will not condone a course of action that could lead us to war."
** A bigger one later: "I will not defer. I've come to you to resolve this conflict ''now.'' I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!"
* Padme and her handmaidens really can't be separated in this episode; a CMOA for one of them is a CMOA for all of them. That being said, Sabe's quick thinking and ability to keep her cool when the slightest misstep will spell all of their deaths ''and'' she's not able to openly consult with her queen? BadassNormal.
* The pod-race finale. Sure, it was more the folly of Sebulba rather than direct actions on the part of Anakin, but just watching Sebulba's ginormous pod engines smash into an oncoming rock at 500 MPH as Anakin's tiny little thing cruises majestically on by was certainly a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* Obi-Wan out of the gate vs Maul.
* The duel between Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi & Qui-Gon Jinn is now and will forever remain the Crowning Moment of Lightsaber awesomeness in all of Star Wars.
** Not just the duel itself, but Duel Of The Fates as well.
* Little Anakin taking down the Droid Control Ship with nobody but R2-D2 backing him up.
* At the very end of the credits, Darth Vader can be heard breathing, foreshadowing what's to come.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Two]]
* Although Yoda's popularity has never waned since the original trilogy, the moment he dropped his cane and pulled out a lightsaber in ''[[StarWars Attack of the Clones]]'' forever cemented him as being as {{Badass}} as he is wise.
** He doesn't just ''pull'' it out, oh no, that's not cool enough. He puts away the cane, then opens his robe and ''Forces the lightsaber from inside his robe to his open hand. That'' is what [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]] are made of.
* "This party's over.", which is followed by an awesome battle between dozens of Jedi and hundreds of robots (and later clone troopers), in which the one speaking (Mace Windu) defeats another {{Badass}}, Jango Fett.
** Mace facing down Dooku is awesome but it goes into CrowningMomentOfAwesome territory when it is revealed that dozens of the spectators in the audience are Jedi.You can see why Mace has the initials for "Bad Motherfucker" on his lightsaber.
* Let's talk about Count Dooku for a minute. Dude kicked the asses of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi ''simultaneously'', and still had enough juice to give Yoda a decent fight. Granted that he'd probably have lost if the duel had continued, but the number of people who could last even that long has got to be awfully small, and y'know, he's played by Creator/ChristopherLee.
** The guy ''salutes'' Yoda before they go at it.
** Yoda hopping around like a demon frog on acid when he was fighting Count Dooku counts too.
** The best part was that ''Yoda wasn't trying to win.'' He was playing around, trying to buy time for the clones to arrive and save Obi-Wan and Anakin. But he still was winning.
** The mere fact that the dwarf Yoda just about bested 6"4" Dooku is awesome
*** Size matters not.
* The very end of the film, with the clone troops forming up for review, Palpatine standing on the balcony... cue the Imperial March. That's right, it's a [[WhamLine Wham]] {{Leitmotif}}!
* The ending of the stadium battle when the Jedi seem defeated, but refuse to surrender.Then Yoda and an entire army of troops appear out of nowhere and save them. The phrase BigDamnHeroes has rarely fit better
** Agreed. The whole battle of Geonosis was just awesome to say the least. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rHvrLlQSWI&feature=fvst This]] makes it even more awesome, in a way.
* Padmé proved herself awesome in the stadium battle when she climbs up the pillar she is tied to and fights off the Nexu. Even getting slashed across the back couldn't stop her. This all happens while the two Jedi look on in wonder. "She seems to be on top of things." No kidding, Obi.
* Obi-Wan's fight with Jango Fett including the {{OhCrap}} moment of "Oh, not good!".
* Towards the beginning of the film, when Obi-Wan and Anakin are chasing after Zam, Anakin takes a short cut. He pulls to a halt, and for a few moments, it looks as though they've lost her. Obi-Wan looks annoyed, but Anakin doesn't. Then Anakin gives his master a casual "excuse me" before ''jumping over the side of the speeder, free-falling through traffic, and landing on Zam's speeder''. '''''And he timed it just right.''''' This scene was obviously made for anyone still in doubt that Anakin is the Chosen One.
** The best part: Obi-Wan looks ''annoyed'' when he does it, and simply states, "I hate it when he does that." Meaning that this isn't the first time Anakin's pulled an awesome stunt like this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Three]]
* The quiet opening, a single Star Destroyer rolling across the screen to the sound of lone drumbeats. Two small fighters race across the screen, and the most bombastic and cheer-inducing take on the Force Theme ''ever'' blares across the screen. We know ''exactly'' who these two Jedi Knights are, we know ''exactly'' what they're about to do, and we know in the space of a single scene that this is the ''movie we've been waiting twenty years for''.
** To quote the novelization; "Though this is the end of the age of heroes, it has saved its best for last."
* The Battle of Coruscant was one big Moment of Awesome for Anakin. He tricks two high-quality homing missiles tailing him into blowing each other up. He is able to pilot his interceptor with such precision that he crushes one of those tiny little buzz droids between his fighter and Obi-Wan's, causing no damage to either vehicle and utterly destroying the droid. And he does this at the risk of getting a buzz droid on his own fighter. When told the hangar shields are still up on the ''Invisible Hand'', he isn't worried at all. He just blasts the generator like nobody's business. Later, he kills Dooku in what quickly becomes [[CombatByChampion single combat]]. After that, he carries the unconscious Obi-Wan on his back like he's as light as a rag doll, and finally, he safely crash-lands half a cruiser that was never designed to be able to land safely.
** The duel with Dooku is made even better in the novelization. It's told from his perspective, and it shows him going from a complete SmugSnake through his OhCrap moment when he realizes that Obi-Wan and Anakin [[IAmNotLeftHanded aren't fighting like he expected]] to his final realization of his betrayal by Sidious.
** "Under the circumstances I'd say the ability to fly this thing is irrelevant."
** "I think we lost something."
** [[DangerDeadpan "Not to worry, we are still flying half a ship."]]
** The entire sequence from the movie's opening to the landing on Coruscant is just one ludicrously extended CrowningMomentOfAwesome, ending with [[DeadpanSnarker "Another happy landing."]]
** As the novelization states: ''"This is Anakin Skywalker's masterpiece."''
** Yes, but none of that stands up to R2-D2. He's cornered by two EliteMooks and probably about to get shot. So what does he do? He squirts them with oil, engages his booster jets, and ''[[KillItWithFire sets them on fire]]''. And then [[UnflinchingWalk (st)rolls away while they explode]].
** Anakin [[KickTheSonOfABitch slaughtering the Separatist Council]]. In the novelization, he's also cracking [[VideoGame/{{Blood}} Caleb-esque]] jokes while doing it.
* Obi-Wan has two: defeating (along with Yoda) an entire clone trooper company, and chopping off three of Anakin's limbs with a single strike.
** The entirety of his final duel with General Grievous on Utapau, but ''especially'' the climax which saw him hanging over a ledge and he used the Force to shoot the general with a blaster (complete with [[BondOneLiner irreverent comment]] afterward)? When Luke's hanging over a precipice, it means he's had the stuffing kicked out of him, and he's barely going to survive this encounter. When Obi-Wan is hanging over a precipice, it means he's about to kick ass.
*** His BondOneLiner also makes for one hell of a BrickJoke going all the way back to ''ANewHope'', which counts as a meta moment of awesome for George Lucas.
--->'''Obi-Wan''' (after killing Grievous): "So uncivilized."
--->'''Obi-Wan''' (teaching Luke to use a lightsaber): "Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age."
* Windu also gets one in ''Revenge of the Sith'', in his duel with Palpatine. He even would have won, had Anakin not shown up. The dialogue that preceded was also awesome (for both!):
-->'''Mace:''' In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you are under arrest.
-->'''Palpatine:''' I ''am'' the Senate!
-->'''Mace:''' Not yet!
** Only Palpatine was most likely toying with Windu the whole time, as he had just butchered the three other Jedi Masters.
** The above dialogue is even better in the trailer:
--->'''Mace:''' In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you are under arrest.
--->'''Palpatine:''' Are you threatening me, Master Jedi? *Ignites lightsaber and lunges. Cue the most badass and ominous music ever used in a ''Star Wars'' trailer*
** Ah, but then we would not have seen Palpatine become the LargeHam he was ''born'' to be. Palpatine announces the birth of TheEmpire and the death of freedom to the Senate... who respond with ''a standing ovation''. Your Majesty, your ascent to {{Magnificent Bastard}}hood is complete. The horrified-sounding [[OminousLatinChanting ominous chorus]] in the background doesn't hurt, either.
** That duel is explained in the EU. The Sith like to use a subversive tactic called Dun Moch, where they mock their Jedi opponents and telepathically push base emotions into their minds, which disrupts their ability to call on the Force. That's why Palpatine laughed at Yoda and hissed at Mace Windu. The mental aspect of Windu's fighting style allowed him to reflect those emotions back at Palpatine, while Yoda had no such defense. Mace had legitimately defeated Palpatine until Anakin showed up. And Mace lived while the other Masters died because his style, Vapaad, made him the absolute best duelist in the galaxy, possibly the best throughout the franchise's entire canon history. Only Dooku and Yoda ever fought him to a standstill, and that was before he made a style so vicious and powerful that an uncautious user would be drawn into the Dark Side. No telling what a Sith could do with it, but Vapaad died with Mace. He actually had to kill the only other two people he taught it to because they couldn't handle it.
** In the novelization, it's stated that Palpatine and Mace stalemated, with Anakin being the one to decide the outcome. At one point, Anakin observes and can only make out the blades of their lightsabers, they're moving so fast that TheChosenOne ''can't keep up
Films with their movements''.
** Yoda's decapitating of the clones about to kill him on Kashyyyk. One moment, he's on the floor, seemingly defenseless after feeling the deaths of so many Jedi, and the clones are readying their blasters. The next, the clones are lying dead on the floor and Yoda is deactivating his lightsaber.
** How about the fantastic confrontation in Palpatine's office?
---> '''Palpatine:''' At last the Jedi are no more...
---> '''Yoda:''' Not if anything to say about it ''I have''! *Force pushes Palpatine so hard he goes flying across the room and lands ass over head*
---> '''Yoda:''' At an end your rule is... and not short enough it was.
** The fact that the unflappable Palpatine tries to run away rather than fight is a good indicator of how badass Yoda is.
*** "If so powerful you are, why leave?" (Draws and ignites lightsaber )
** Before that, Yoda casually knocks out Palpatine's two guards with a wave of his hand.
* Heck, the entire Obi-Wan vs. Anakin and Yoda vs. Palpatine sequence in ''Revenge of the Sith'' was a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Especially considering the former was done in ''real time'', no speed-up required.
** According to the special features on the DVD, when Ewan [=McGregor=] and Hayden Christensen finished their fight, ''the entire crew broke out in applause.''
** In the Yoda vs. Palpatine fight, when Master Yoda takes that first step to shove the two massive great blobs of Sith lightning back at the guy that fired them, there's a moment, just a moment, when you think that, despite the ForegoneConclusion and all, he might still win, somehow, because he's so awesome he can somehow overwrite RealLife history.
* A small moment, and one easily missed as it occurs between scenes of Order 66 being carried out, but an example of why Clones aren't just cannon fodder: a single clone trooper takes out two spider droids, where previously they had been annihilating entire squads in seconds, by jumping on their backs and shooting them at full auto from above.
* At the end, all it took was Vader taking one deep mechanical breath and every hair on your body stood on end, followed by one of the most heartwrenching [[BigNo Big No's]] ever. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6bEs3dxjPg]]
** Or the look on Vader's face as the mask lowers, eyes widening as he realizes what his world will look like from then on...
** The first ''LegoStarWars'' made this scene even more awesome; instead of the BigNo, Vader ''goes on a rampage.''
* The very ending. Binary Sunset. There could have been no better way to link both trilogies.
* Palpatine's duel with Yoda. Palpatine literally dismantles the Senate to fight Yoda, and the Sith Lord cackles the whole way through the fight.
** "[[RobotChicken Then I threw the senate at him! The whole senate! True story!]]"
* Say what you will about Anakin, but marching up the steps of the Jedi Temple at the head of the entire 501st is pure win.
* [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene Palpatine and Anakin at the opera]]. Sheer creepy, slightly {{Squick}}y win.
* Obi-Wan, alone, nearly unarmed and without backup, facing up to a room full of bad guys including one with four Lightsabers. Han Solo would be proud.
** His entrance in that scene: "Hello there." Best entrance ever. Then dropping that huge thing on Grievous' guards. Then strolling on, twirling his lightsabre like a walking stick.
*** Grievous: "I've been trained in your Jedi arts by Count Dooku." Obi-Wan might have been thinking: "Good, because I trained the Jedi who killed Count Dooku." (In the movie, he ''might'' be thinking it. In the novelisation, he ''says'' it in his
own inimitable DeadpanSnarker way.)
** More: he wasn't trapped, ambushed, or backed into this situation. Obi-Wan Kenobi saw a huge hanger filled with droids, and with General Grevious, went "Hmm", and ''jumped down into the middle''.
pages:
* Though Grievous having four arms was slightly spoiled by the cartoon miniseries that bridged Episode II and Episode III, you have to admit that the way he advances towards Obi-Wan on Utapau, four lightsabers in his hands, all four of them spinning like saws as they carve up the floor, is a hell of a way to start a duel.
''Awesome/ThePhantomMenace''
* Let's face it, the entire movie is a CMOA for Palpatine.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Four]]
''Awesome/AttackOfTheClones''
* The opening shot of the Star Destroyer, which just keeps coming. The producers of ''Series/BlakesSeven'' saw that scene and realized that there was ''no way'' they could ever beat that on a police procedural budget.
** Made more impressive by setting up a contrast. First, we see the Blockade Runner go by, and it looks big and cool. And then we see what's chasing it...and the baseline for both "big" and, arguably, "cool" just got blown out of the water.
** Amusingly, George Lucas has stated that he knew he couldn't afford to do good special effects for every shot in the movie, so for the most part, he just did very fast, very short shots that would keep people from seeing the wires or anything along those lines... except that he deliberately spent a huge amount of money on getting the best possible special effects work he could for the opening shot, because he knew, in his own words, "If the audience bought that shot, then I had them."
''Awesome/RevengeOfTheSith''
* "Sorry about the mess."
''Awesome/ANewHope''
* "I have you now." (Though awesome, [[BigDamnHeroes the Millennium Falcon intervenes a second later]])
''Awesome/TheEmpireStrikesBack''
* "I've been waiting for you Obi Wan; we meet again at last. The circle is now complete; when I left you I was but the learner, now ''I'' am the ''master''."
** "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."
*** Even better if you have the Original Trilogy Delux Edition and you learn the ENTIRE quote:
--> "Should my blade find its mark, you shall cease to exist, but if you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine"
''Awesome/ReturnOfTheJedi''
* "You're all clear, kid, now let's blow this thing and go home!" Welcome to the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo.
** The best part is when you realize that up until he turned around, Han Solo saw all the rebels on that base as walking corpses and his last scene with Luke was a goodbye to a dead man. That CrowningMomentOfAwesome was probably the first time Han had felt optimism in years.
** One word, two syllables: '''Kaboom.''' This was on Luke's official first day of joining the Rebel Alliance. "So, I took out a squadron of stormtroopers on my first day. What did you do?" "Oh, nothing much. I just blew up the fracking ''Death Star''."
* Princess Leia Organa, barely a minute out of her cell, taking over her own rescue: "Somebody has to save our skins." "Into the garbage chute, flyboy!"
** "[[DeadpanSnarker We, uh, ran into some old friends.]]"
* [[RedemptionEqualsDeath "Stand by. Stand by."]]
** [[spoiler: To elaborate, in the ExpandedUniverse, we find out that the gunner, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone appalled at himself for destroying Despayre and Alderaan]], thereby making him one of the worst mass-murderers in history, kept delaying in the hopes that something, ''anything'' could stop him from blowing up Yavin IV. He gets his wish. Even if you don't accept ExpandedUniverse material, given how long he delays despite having a firing solution, it is a decent AlternativeCharacterInterpretation.]]
* Vader during the Moff meeting aboard the Death Star. The only thing that we've seen him do so far is strangle a guy and yell at a young woman. After "the man in black" decries the Death Star as insignificant next to the Force, Admiral Conan Antonio Motti decides to insult his beliefs. Vader merely lifts a hand and the guy starts choking, saying that "I find your lack of faith disturbing." We see in this that despite first impressions, Vader is actually ''dangerous,'' not just Tarkin's lackey.
** Remember, this was the ''first'' use of the Force in film, after it was introduced, which made it all the more intimidating in the day. Obi-wan calls it "an energy field" surrounding people, binds the galaxy, and other pseudo-religious harmonious fluff, and the audience was like, "Oh okay, old guy, that's cool, let's get back to the space opera", then an Imperial officer starts talking smack, and Vader suddenly introduces ''practical villainous applications'' of said energy field. Dark Side of the Force indeed.
** And the story it's from is one of Sci-Fi's Big Three. Given that [[StarTrek the other]] [[DoctorWho two members]] of that group's [[BeliefMakesYouStupid attitudes]] [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions on religion]] were often condescending at best (and one of them might still be at times), this moment can feel really darn satisfying if you're religious. Even in science fiction, religion and mysticism can still have a place in the world, and its practitioners can not only be justified in it (midi-chlorians debatably aside), but powerful by it as well.
** Also Tarkin's reaction: first a sort of intellectual curiosity at seeing Vader in action, then he decides enough is enough and yanks him back into line.
*** And Vader's reaction to Tarkin: the subtext being not that of an inferior responding to the order of a superior, but of grudging respect: "I would really just as soon choke Motti to death as look at him, but I have to work with you, so I'll honor your request to lay off."
** How about Tarkin having the balls to actually ''threaten'' Darth Vader, implying that something bad will happen if Vader's plan to let the Falcon lead them to the Rebel base doesn't work.
* Threepio's gotten a reputation as a bit of a Chew Toy, but in Episode Four he really shows a great deal of competence. Despite his constant complaining, when the chips are down he's able to pull it together and get him and his comrades out of danger. When meeting Uncle Ben and Luke Skywalker for the first time, Threepio calmly manages to not only get himself sold but also bring Artoo into the Skywalker household, all without resorting to hysterics. Then, on the Death Star, after being discovered by the Imperial Force, Threepio manages to perform a BavarianFireDrill which allows him and Artoo to escape once again. He may be a bit over emotional and frantic, but Threepio is still dependable when he needs to be.
* Vader wiping out most of the Rebel Fighters during the Assault on The Death Star. We know he's skilled with a lightsaber with his battle against Obi-Wan, but we then go out and see him in his personal TIE fighter and effortlessly destroy the fighters in Gold and Red Squadron, including the leader of the squads and Biggs, without breaking a sweat. Only Luke had the skill with the Force to avoid his blasts.
** And it's revealed in novels like ''ShadowsOfTheEmpire'' that he goes and does this on missions for fun. Blasting and destroying ace Rebel pilots with zero effort. Dogfighting is his way of relaxing, and he normally has a dozen kills under his belt once he's done, it's said.

[[folder:Episode Five]]
* Luke single-handedly taking down an Imperial Walker by using a grappling hook to climb up underneath it, slice it open with his lightsaber, and tossing a thermal detonator inside. When you remember that Luke barely had any training as a Jedi at this point, then you'll realize Emperor Palpatine was right to be scared of Luke and how ''really'' powerful he could become if he was fully trained.
** [[RobotChicken What in the f**k is-]]
* "[[AsteroidThicket You're not actually taking us into an asteroid field, are you?!]]" Oh, hell ''yes'' he is.
** "NeverTellMeTheOdds," possibly the most badass line in the entire series.
* Luke informs Yoda that he's just not strong enough in the Force to raise his starfighter from the swamp. Yoda then raises the starfighter out of the swamp, accompanied by triumphant music and spirited beeping from R2-D2.
--->Luke: I don't believe it!
--->Yoda: ''That'' is why you fail.
** "Judge me by my size, do you?"
** Yoda has tons of cool lines. Another good one is "Do, or do not. There is no try."
*** Some of Yoda's lines have made it onto fortune cookies, as "Do or do not, there is no try" has been found along with other Yoda lines.
* "I love you." "I know."
** Especially since this line was an ad-lib by Harrison Ford.
* "No. ''I'' [[LukeIAmYourFather am your father]]." To this day, still one of the most epic and memorable plot twists in the history of cinema.
* "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
** "All too easy."
** [[YouHaveFailedMe "Apology accepted, Captain Needa."]]
*** This was also ''Needa's'' CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Just out maneuvered and outbluffed by Solo, Needa is tasked with explaining his failure to Vader, and there's no question in anyone's mind how [[YouHaveFailedMe Lord Vader deals with setbacks]]. What does he do? He flies himself to the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executor_(Star_Wars) Executor]]'' to stand before Vader, take full responsibility, and fall on his sword, sparing his ship and crew from the Sith Lord's wrath.
** "YouAreInCommandNow, ''Admiral'' Piett."
*** And just in case you don't know the context of the last one, Vader had just force choked the ''previous'' Admiral, which was on ''the other side of the ship'' from Vader. He gives Piett his promotion ''before'' the previous admiral hits the ground.
** "''No'' disintegrations." "As you wish..."
*** "[[Film/ThePrincessBride And that was when he realized...]]"
*** Especially when you consider Boba undoubtedly knows he's talking to the man who killed the man who killed his father.
** "I am altering the deal. ''Pray'' I don't alter it any further."
*** (Robot Chicken turns this into a CrowningMomentOfFunny [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7H-Q2eIYesU in its own right]].)
* What happens right ''after'' the line "I've just made a deal that'll keep the Empire out of here forever."
** It's a Trap!
** Darth Vader just force deflecting the blaster shots ''with his hand,'' no lightsaber necessary, then snatching Han's gun. You think you're going to be able to just shoot Darth Vader? Please!
** Imagine yourself as Han Solo for a moment. You've just outrun a bunch of Imperials and finally made your way to a small out of the way planet for a chance to rest and repair your ship. You've met up with an old friend of yours and are on the way to a nice meal with the possibility of romancing Leia a bit afterwards. And then you open the door to find none other than Darth Vader waiting for you. Do you look in disbelief to the friend who betrayed you? Turn and hightail it out of there with Leia and Chewie in tow? No. Without a single second of hesitation you immediately pull out your gun and ''start shooting that motherfucker.'' Further proof that Han is the biggest badass to ever swagger across the galaxy; too bad Vader has more than enough power with the Dark Side to make up for that.
** Then there's Chewbacca's truly epic roar. It's a real shame he didn't do that more often in the series.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLUTOGpJ2es entrance]] of the ''Executor''. We see it casting shadows on ''Star Destroyers! LIKE THAT BEHEMOTH FROM THE INTRO OF THE PREVIOUS FILM!''
** See also VisualEffectsOfAwesome, if only to reiterate the above (which is not hurt at all by the scene being the debut of [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome The Imperial freaking March]]). A good contender however is a later scene which provides a rear view of the ''Executor'' and shows that even its ''engine exhausts'' dwarf the nearby Star Destroyers.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Episode Six]]
* "You have failed, your Highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me." Doesn't matter than the Emperor immediately got lightning happy, that was the moment the Good Guys ''won''. Probably the second greatest CrowningMomentOfAwesome in the entire series.
** Looking at the progression of events around that point, that scene ''is'' when the tables turned and the good guys started to win. After that declaration, the Shield Generator blew up, Executor was destroyed, and the Death Star Run into the reactor began. Everything began to fall apart for Palpatine.
** Just the fact that Luke's personal greatest triumph is then, when he wins without fighting - when he wins ''by'' not fighting. We saw earlier that he clearly has the courage to face giant monsters - we see here that he has a depth of ''emotional'' courage which runs every bit as deep. By believing, and by ''not'' acting, and by trusting in Anakin, he brought his father back.
** It's even more awesome when you look at the history of the series. [[MagnificentBastard Palpatine]] has had everything go according to his plan for over 30 years (and, if you go by the DarthPlagueis novel, ''since he became an adult.'') [[TheBadGuysWin He hasn't suffered a major loss in his entire life]], with even the destruction of the first Death Star not taking away his cool. Then Luke came in. He's the first person ever to do something the Emperor never expected-make him ''[[VillainousBreakdown lose his cool.]]''
* During the Battle of Endor, Green Leader aka Arvel Crynyd's fighter gets shot down. As his ship begins to break apart, the pilot manages to [[RammingAlwaysWorks crash it clean through]] the bridge of the ''Executor'', [[TakingYouWithMe causing it to lose all control and smash into the Death Star]]. ''Best. Death. Ever.''
** Not only that, but according to ExpandedUniverse, after the battle there was an ''award'' named after the pilot called the Crynyd Award, given for conspicuous bravery in space combat.
** The Rebels also named a captured Star Destroyer after the guy.
* Death Star battles seem to be powered by CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Watching Lando & Company come blasting out of Death Star 2 with their hair on fire is just awesome.
-->'''Lando''': [[BattleCry YAA-HAH!!]]
* Palpatine's "Oh, I'm afraid the deflector shield will be ''quite operational'' when your friends arrive..." It's just the way he says it, [[FauxAffablyEvil a mockery of a friendly old man's concern]].
** Also, absolutely everything else Palpatine says in that conversation, including but not limited to "''[[TheChessmaster Everything]]'' [[TheChessmaster that has transpired has done so according to]] ''[[TheChessmaster my]]'' [[TheChessmaster design]]".
*** Of course, he's talking to the guy whom he expressly stated he did not foresee being there.
* The Force Lightning assault has to be one for Palpatine. He shows up in the movie, and he's just a frail old man. Everyone is terrified of him, but you're never sure why. Then Luke throws his offer back in his face, and: "If you will not be turned...you will be DESTROYED!".
** And the best part about that is the way he says it. The entire movie his tone of voice has been, as someone stated previously, like a mockery of a kind old man because he is so assured in his belief that he will win. But when Luke refuses to turn, he drops that tone and so the way he says that line, how it is just dripping in pure cold hatred and evil... classic.
** If you watch the
''Awesome/TheForceAwakens''

!All
films in the order they were made, there's the impact of seeing the lightning for the first time. Palpatine gives some death threats etc, and you expect some big lightsaber fight or force choking or what have you. Instead, out of freaking nowhere he starts shooting LIGHTNING at Luke. While the lightning has been downgraded and made much more commonplace since then, back then not even Darth Vader could do it (now we know why, but the EU wasn't as developed at the time). It made the Emperor a grade-A badass.
** Keep in mind that the Emperor is suffering from a VillainousBreakdown because, for once, his plans are failing. [[MagnificentBastard That doesn't stop him being awesome.]]
** According to the novelization, the lightning was nothing less than a straight-up abomination of the Force, Palpatine using his sheer overwhelming hatred to break the very rules that bound the universe together. Consider that even in the prequels, we only see two characters who ever use it: Palpatine and his apprentice, Count Dooku.
* After Vader has failed repeatedly to lure his son to the Dark Side, he finally discovers Luke's {{Berserk Button}}:
-->Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for... Sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side, then ''perhaps she will''.
** The music cue that played at that moment especially made it powerful.
** Luke's cry of "[[BigNever Never]]!" and then nearly taking Vader's head off in the duel was also awesome.
*** Even better. Immediately after Luke's BigNever, Vader quickly turns in his direction with a rapid VaderBreath... Yes, Luke got ''Darth Vader'' to '''''gasp!'''''.
* Princess Leia choking Jabba to death in ''Return of the Jedi''. After he objectified her the way he did, she was able to turn the tables. The {{novelization}} of this scene makes it clear that she's calling on the Force to help her with it.
* The Emperor's arrival at the Death Star in ROTJ with a huge assembly of Imperial officers and stormtroopers awaiting in the hangar, a multitude of TIE fighters flying outside and the John Williams Imperial March blasting loud as his royal guards and then finally he disembarks from his shuttle.
** "[[OhCrap The emperor is not as forgiving as I am.]]"
* The first point-of -view shot of the ROTJ speeder bike chase.
* "Now witness the firepower of this '''fully armed and operational battle station!'''"
* [=C3PO=] has his CrowningMomentOfAwesome... it is, as befits him, rather subdued, but - when the Ewoks capture the "Pitiful little band", and they see their Golden God, and bow down to him - well, that's not it; it's a few moments later, when he speaks to the tribesmen, and Luke asks in surprise "Can you understand what they're saying?" and, of course, Threepio responds: "Oh yes, Master Luke... I am versed in over six million forms of communication!" ''Don't act so surprised, your highness.''
** Also, remember that [=C3PO=] has been complaining about the adventures he has been in, always being in danger, actually being nearly destroyed several times... but, in the end, he becomes the one that allows the Rebel victory, because it was his presence in all those adventures that allowed him to tell the Ewoks what was going on in the rest of the galaxy.
* Luke walking off the plank over the Sarlacc pit, turning, grabbing the edge, flipping back onto the skiff, catching the lightsaber Artoo fires from Jabba's sail barge, igniting it, and '''proceeding to kick ass'''.
** The buildup in that scene is awesomely constructed, especially the music, which was recycled for the teaser trailers for Phantom Menace, if you recall.
** "You should have bargained, Jabba. That's the last mistake you'll ever make." C'mon! How badass is that!?!
* '''THE ENTIRE BATTLE OF ENDOR IN SPACE'''. Some specific moments are
---> Lando: Yes, I said '''''closer!''''' Move as close you can, and engage those Star Destroyers at point blank range!
---> Ackbar: At that range we won't last long against those Star Destroyers!
---> Lando: We'll last longer than we will against that '''Death Star'''! ''And we might just take a few of them with us!''
** Commander Merrejk's total "Oh God we're dead" moment while Piett's shouting to "intensify the forward batteries" of the ''Executor'' and Merrejk sees off in the distance the out of control A-Wing coming straight for them.
---> Piett: ''Intensify the forward firepower!''
---> Merrejk: '''''TOO LATE!'''''
* With all the Luke/Vader action, it is easy to forget Han. In a flash of genius, he gets the men in the base to come out by pretending the Rebels have surrendered, only to jump them outside.
* The Ewoks' BigDamnHeroes moment when they rescue the rebels from the Empire.
** Though it must be admitted that the one stormtrooper who manages to actually laserblast one of those damn teddy bears always seems to get a cheer from the audience.
* Leia pretending to be badly hurt and luring two stormtroopers near so she could blast them away was awesome. Topped off by a callback of Han telling her he loves her, to which she responds "I know."
* Luke's first entrance into Jabba's Palace. The door slowly opens, and a lone robed figure stands there. Then he immediately starts striding purposefully into the darkness, pausing only to casually Force-choke a few guards that get in his way. The sequence is shot in such a way that the viewer knows a full-on Jedi beatdown is about to begin. The Hero's Journey is complete in that moment: Luke Skywalker left Tatooine a naive farmer, but he returned a Jedi.
** And then there's more evidence of that journey's impact when Jabba drops Luke into the Rancor pit. The slavering beast sets its sights on Luke, and within three minutes, Luke takes it down. With a [[ImprovisedWeapon bone.]]
* During the battle at the Sarlacc pit, Lando gets thrown off a skiff into the sand. Han, attempting to save him, gets his foot tangled in ropes hanging from the skiff, which keep him from getting thrown down as well. A tentacle grabs Lando and starts pulling him in, when Han gets a blaster from Chewie and blasts it, one-handed, hanging upside-down, and ''[[HandicappedBadass mostly blind]]''.
* Chewie along with two Ewoks taking control of a scout walker and turning the tide of the forest battle which had been going badly for the Ewoks. Also it allowed Han to use it to trick the remaining Imperials inside the bunker to open the doors.
** Chewie's Walker shooting out the other walker becomes a rallying point for the Ewoks. Whereas they had had trouble dealing with the troops and the walkers, this time around their attacks (making a walker slip and fall over a bunch of logs, doing a "nutcracker" on another) are much more effective. We see a bunch of primitive, tribal creatures actually hold their own against the baddest army in the galaxy. They had ''every'' reason to celebrate that night at the victory party.
* Remember that awesome "I love you./I know." from the previous episode? [[CallBack Called Back]] with a role-reverse during the Battle of Endor, and it was every bit as awesomely romantic then, too.
* The scene where Luke surrenders himself to Vader in ''Jedi'' and addresses him as "Father". When Vader prods Luke that he accepted the truth, Luke firmly responds "I accept the truth that you were once Anakin Skywalker, my father." With a simple turn of phrase, Luke shows Vader how he has grown from a boy who was capable of a HeroicBSOD upon hearing Vader's little emotional sucker punch to a mature man who accepts an uncomfortable truth ''his way''.
* Still failing to turn his son, Vader watches him get fried by the Emperor, and in a moment of clarity remembers the noble Jedi he was. He then owns the Emperor and seals the victory of the Rebels. Maybe the greatest CrowningMomentOfAwesome in all of ''StarWars''.
** Also, arguably, the only bit Lucas himself has in tying the original series to the prequel trilogy. Watch the death scene again, and it's arguable that Vader finally realizes that he was always whining about other people limiting him, but it was always him -- in staring at his ruined stump of a hand, just like Luke's, it's got to be a little apparent to him that Luke's been through almost exactly the same kind of life he had, but worse on every level, all without giving in to the Dark Side.
** This is even better in the NPR radio adaptation, with Brock Peters' incredible delivery in this exchange:
-->'''Palpatine:''' Put me down!
-->'''Vader:''' I will put you down. Down the reactor shaft! Down to your death!
-->'''Palpatine:''' I am your master!
-->'''Vader:''' Darth Vader's master, BUT NOT ANAKIN SKYWALKER'S!
* Luke gives his father a [[VikingFuneral proper send-off]], while the magical musical Force theme plays for the last time, and then we see people across the galaxy celebrating freedom. And two dead Jedi watch in approval... except there are actually three Jedi who can now rest knowing the evil they fought is gone.
