** Even better, had Luke not been there to muck things up, ''it would have worked.'' Tear could have ended the entire game in just ten minutes. Seriously, if Symphonia's Sheena or Presea weren't enough, this was truly the ''Tales'' game that showed off how awesome ''Tales'' females could be, and future ''Tales'' girls are almost always judged on how badass they are by comparing them to [[CombatMedic Tear Grants]], [[LightningBruiser Anise Tatlin]], and [[BadassPrincess Natalia Luzu Kimlasca Lanvaldear.]]

* The hyperresonance that sent Tear and Luke to Tataroo Valley becomes this when the truth comes out; [[spoiler: it wasn't Luke and Tear who did it, it was just ''Luke''. Luke, who unconsciously called on his power to protect Master Van - and most likely grant his wish of leaving the manor - sends them flying across the world. Luke's desire to be free and protect Van are what, ultimately, ''screws Van over''.]]

* The ''Reminiscences of Jade'' manga has a downplayed but still epic bit from Jade; face to face with everyone's [[SarcasmMode favourite]] BonusBoss, the entire team is on the ropes [[spoiler: understandable to anyone who's faced Nebilim's replica in the game]]. What does Jade do, faced with the consequences of his past [[spoiler: and the face of his beloved teacher]]? He ''out smarts the boss'', forcing [[spoiler: her]] to overload [[spoiler: herself]] with power, breaking down in the process. And he even manages to say goodbye in such a way that proves how far his CharacterDevelopment has come.

* Any cutscene where Natalia gets to show off just how badass she is with that bow of hers. She was providing cover fire ''against an actual gun at one point''. Not to mention ''shooting Sync out of a tree effortlessly''. And let's not forget [[spoiler: killing Largo]].

* Has anyone noticed how in the [[spoiler:Tower of Rem scene where Luke uses the Ten Thousand Replicas]], Guy holds down Tear. He touched a girl for the sake of [[spoiler:Luke at the moment killing himself]]. And then remember Guy is still a bit timid around girls...talk about guts.
* Jade Curtiss is one of those people who is SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome incarnate, if just because you can be pretty much assured he has one ''[[DeadpanSnarker every time he opens his mouth.]]''

* Can we add the final confrontation with the BigBad to the list? It's just too ''awesome'' (and funny) to watch everyone in your party verbally own him, [[strike:picking]] ''ripping'' apart the BigBad's logic piece by piece and throwing it in his face.

** Though the awesome is downgraded when you take into account that if Tear had succeeded [[spoiler: the Score would most likely be fulfilled without the deviations of the main party and the villains to move away from it and reveal certain truths. Thus it would end with the destruction of the world.]] Still awesome, but in a slightly more horrifying fashion when you take that into account.

** Related to the above, ''Luke stopping Tear'' is this with some FridgeBrilliance tossed in. '''Everyone''' including ''Van'' is taken out and/or weakened by the First Hymn [[ForcedSleep Nightmare]] that Tear is using. Except Luke. Luke, a [[SpoiledBrat spoiled]] ShelteredAristocrat, gets up and gets in the way of Tear which, in retrospect, is massive foreshadowing just what kind of potential Luke has. Not to mention that one action ultimately is what kicks off the events of the game which, though it leads to bad places as well, [[spoiler: not Akzeriuth since Luke would have been sent anyways, but the massacre at Sheridan and Ion's death are examples,]] ultimately pans out in regards to ''saving the world''. This is the ''nail'' that sets everything in motion; Luke, against all odds, getting up and in the way of Tear's imposed task of killing her brother. Better yet, Luke's resistance to Yulia's Hymns is possibly foreshadowing [[spoiler: he's [[GodInHumanForm another Lorelei]].]]

* Tear's introduction deserves special mention. While most previous heroines in the franchise had been established as damsels in distress from the beginning ([[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Mint]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth Claire]], and [[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia Shirley]] in particular), Tear makes her entrance by infiltrating a manor and performing an assassination attempt [[spoiler: on the BigBad]]. Not to bash the earlier ''Tales'' ladies, but it was a breath of fresh air to have a lead female in the series to establish herself in such a {{Badass}} way. The final kicker? She's the WhiteMagicianGirl.
