* Fans have been screaming for Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms to appear for years, and its introduction doesn't disappoint. It starts with eternal badass [[TheStoic Chirico Cuvie]] going up against [[AcePilot Kallen Kozuki]] from Anime/CodeGeass. She's in an actual Knightmare with weapons and harkens, while [[WithThisHerring he's in a gimped Scopedog with no weapons]]. He STILL wins. Then they get double crossed, then Kallen teams up with him to mess all of them up. On a special note, they form a HeterosexualLifePartners relationship that lasts through all of the games because of this.

It starts with eternal badass [[TheStoic Chirico Cuvie]] going up against [[AcePilot Kallen Kozuki]] from Anime/CodeGeass.''Anime/CodeGeass''. She's in an actual Knightmare with weapons and harkens, while [[WithThisHerring he's in a gimped Scopedog with no weapons]]. He STILL wins.

On a special note, they form a HeterosexualLifePartners relationship that lasts through all of the games because of this.



* [[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch Lamperouge]] gets one, not as Zero, but as himself as a normal student. Terrorists have a large portion of the student body held hostage, during the [[CodeGeass heart hat event]], along with Lelouch. What does he do? Distract them long enough for everyone to get away, leaving him alone with a bunch of angry terrorists. He then gets saved when several members of ZEXIS burst in from the window.
** In another moment, this time as Zero, [[spoiler:when [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Esther Elhaas]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFiiuEPnG1Y is turned into a Dimensional Beast]], Lelouch takes it upon himself to stop her (either launching from the [[CodeGeass Ikaruga]] if he is not deployed or moving himself in Esther's path if he is deployed in the [[CodeGeass Shinkirou]]), placing a Geass command on her to stop attacking. Made more awesome because Lelouch didn't even think of what he was doing; he's pretty much just trying to stop something over fifty times heavier than him from hurting his allies and friends, and is lucky enough to accidentally Geass her successfully]].

* When [[Anime/CodeGeass Schneizel el Britannia]] reveals Zero's identity, the [[CodeGeass Black Knights]] are considerably concerned with the revelation. [[spoiler:Granted, they just witnessed Suzaku [[NukeEm nuke Tokyo with FLEIJA]] and are furious at Zero]]. Of all the people to try and reason with the Black Knights, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Chang Wufei]] is the most vocal, calling out the stupidity of [[CodeGeass Ohgi Kaname]] and the other Black Knights. He goes on to list all of the things Zero has promised to do and followed up on, including the fact that Zero having the power of Geass is irrelevant, given that half of ZEXIS possess supernatural powers of their own. Furthermore, Wufei reminds Ohgi and the others that Zero is the supreme commander of ZEXIS, meaning if the Black Knights want to betray Lelouch, they have to win over their ZEXIS colleagues (who are doubtful of Schneizel's intentions). Wufei adds that they're obviously confused and emotional following the nuking and are just looking for a convenient scapegoat, which Schneizel gladly provided with his accusations. He rounds it out by saying if the Black Knights want to fulfill their dream, Zero is their best bet to achieving it. Sadly, this piece of dialogue only occurs in the normal route path where the Black Knights go ahead and betray Lelouch, but considering Wufei is normally a ButtMonkey in the franchise, particularly his frequency of joining enemy factions as per ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz'', this is without a doubt the single greatest thing he's done yet (until ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL''). Also doubles as ShownTheirWork for Banpresto.[[note]]In the backstory of the ''Gundam Wing'' manga ''Episode Zero'', Wufei was more of a scholar than a fighter. It was his wife's death that caused him to take up arms against OZ.[[/note]]

** The IF route version is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sfDRhM0Hnc even better]]: Nia's about to drop the moon, but [[Anime/EurekaSeven Holland Novak]] (who's been absent all game) appears. Not much help, except Holland can't even finish his BigDamnHeroes speech before [[CodeGeass Gino Weinburg and Anya Alstreim]] appear as friendly reinforcements, deciding they'll stick with their friend Suzaku after all. Next is [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Ozma Lee and Luca Angelloni]], finally catching up with the Frontier fleet after their adventures looking for Space Whales. Finally, [[spoiler:the Shin Dragon arrives with Rand and Setsuko in tow]]. That's four simultaneous BigDamnHeroes at once.

** He outdid himself (by his own admission) for the final battle of ''Code Geass'': in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4VS5vqklMU&feature=plcp Battle of Mt. Fuji]], [[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms Armored Troopers]] take the land battle while the [[CodeGeass Knights of the Round]] head to the skies. Suzaku, [[Anime/CodeGeass Rolo Lamperouge]] and Kallen vs. [[CodeGeass Bismarck Waldstein]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Kira Yamato]] vs. [[ActorAllusion Gino]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Tieria Erde]] vs [[WaveMotionGun Anya]], and an awesome SuperRobot ass-whuppin to the tune of ''Series/TheATeam''.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/zxyu0369 Zxyu0369]] also makes good arrangements, the best one being [[CodeGeass Zero]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YIeYLq21xw&feature=plcp Requiem]], with ZEXIS vs Emperor Lelouch vi Britannia. Knowing the characters, the battle greatly delivers on tension and drama, as both sides are fighting each other for peace through different ideals and methods. Duels include Kallen vs. Suzaku, Heero Yuy vs. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Zechs Marquise]], Setsuna vs. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Mr. Bushido]], and ultimately many members of ZEXIS against Lelouch himself.

* Girtar sics a bunch of bioroids on the team. Chirico destroys them with his gun. When Girtar demands to know how he took them down with "just a handgun", Chirico clarifies that it's an Armour Magnum.

* Stage 50 has one where Graham, if the player saves him, is about to perform his HeroicSacrifice as seen in the movie till both Setsuna and Heero stop him from doing that. Because both the Zero System and the Twin Drive System are supposed to be paired with each other as noted by the scientists in Z2, both [[BashBrothers Heero and Setsuna]] proceed to dive towards the ELS base with Heero supporting Setsuna even when influenced by the ELS.
* [[spoiler:Kamina]] returned as a spirits to fight alongside Simon and Z-Blue in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
* When the entire playable cast attains [[spoiler: "Shinka".]] Let's just say awesomeness ensues.

** Crow hits the Shiseiten with the Unbreakable Fulcrum, and Shikuu reacts with outright shock for the first time. Crow's Sphere Act resonates through the area, and Hibiki starts to come around as a result.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmwueiCiPn8 The Axis ColonyDrop event]] from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' is handled differently compared to previous [=SRW=] outings. As the asteroid begins its descent, Z-BLUE attempts to push it away, with Kamille and Banagher activating the Zeta and Unicorn's respective Biosensor and Psycoframe systems, focusing on human will. This leads to several scenes showing Z-BLUE's non-combatant allies on the planet realizing what's happening in space, sending their desires to them. As Banagher begins to falter under the pressure, the rest of Z-BLUE do what they can to support each other: [[Anime/AquarionEvol Amata Sora]] and [[Anime/{{Gunbuster}} Noriko Takaya]] hold onto the Gundams, [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Shinji Ikari]], [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Sôsuke Sagara]] and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Hibiki Kamishiro]] protects them with their units' barriers, and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero Yuy]] and [[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch vi Britannia]] use the ZERO and Druid Systems in the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz Wing Gundam Zero Custom]] and Shinkirou, respectively, to coordinate everything. TrueCompanions, indeed.

No, we don't mean a Berserk Unit 01 from the original series; We're talking about the utterly terrifying Shinji from the end of [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance]] when he went absolutely [[RageBreakingPoint apeshit]] against [[spoiler: the 14th angel]], [[GlowingEyesOfDoom Blood-red eyes]] and all.

** Shinji can feel Land's heat boiling inside of him, and Kaworu comments that he and his power to withstand pain are wonderful. Everybody can feel a warmth flowing into them, and Roger surmises that Land has finally reached the Third Stage and achieved his Sphere Act. Land asks Straus how he liked that one, and Straus replies through his smashed helmet that he's gonna feel that one in the morning. His armour, smashed to bits, falls to the floor. And he, is [[spoiler:revealed to be a she, an extremely buxom blonde]]. And the unarmored Straus's going to pay back from that last hit.
