* Sheena right after Volt [[spoiler: kills Corrine]], who threw himself in front of her to protect her from a lightning blast. She proceeds to stand up and demand Volt to make a pact with her.

** Right
after Volt [[spoiler: kills Corrine]], who threw himself in front of her to protect her from a lightning blast. She blast, she proceeds to stand up and demand Volt to make a pact with her.



* The first trip to the Tower of Salvation. It's simply unforgettable. Add in some BigDamnHeroes moments (from the party) and then [[HeelFaceTurn the Renegades]] to a epic BossRush, with amazing Music. (Let's not forget, this is where the game shifts gears from otherwise generic JRPG to something much more epic.)

* The majority of the fight scenes in the {{OVA}}'s are done really well.




to:

* Colette is actually much more of an ActionGirl than people give her credit for, even if she's not on the same level as Sheena or Presea. Some of her highlights include:
** Saving a woman from being executed by cutting the noose with her chakram.
** Throwing her chakram at Kvar when the party first meets him, stunning him enough so that the party can proceed.
** Fighting back when Pronyma tries to take her away. Especially since this is the moment she returns from her soulless state and then smacks the Desian away before destroying the trap the rest of the party had been caught in.

*** Arguably topped when she does her [[{{Kamehamehadoken}} "impression"]] of it beneath the Tower of Salvation.

*** Regal again, as he addresses an army of angels: "{{You shall not pass}}!"
** Sheena, in the temple of Volt, after the Summon Spirit goes berserk and ends up [[spoiler:killing Corrine]], Sheena stands up and screams "For the sake of everyone that risked their lives to protect me, ''VOLT! I DEMAND YOUR POWER!!"'' Cue the screen shattering. Cue [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Fighting of the Spirit]]. Cue fight.
*** For this troper, the game got even more awesome. The fight was a tough, knock-down drag-out brawl that seemed rather touch-and-go at times...then, Volt whacked Sheena into [[LimitBreak Overlimit]]. At which point, Sheena stopped everything, summoned Undine, and proceeded to ''utterly thrash Volt.'' Fight over.
*** This troper had a similar experience, turning things around during the fight with Kuchinawa by summoning Origin.
*** This troper now makes it a point to summon Volt during the battle against Kuchinawa.
*** Sheena also has a hadouken moment in the basement of the Tower of Salvation, where she concentrates the energies of Tethe'alla's Summon Spirits into a beam of power from her hands.
*** She gets another awesome moment earlier, when she uses the Tethe'alla spirits to fire the Mana canon. The result is quite badass.
** When Zelos [[spoiler:shows up and reveals that he saved all of the seemingly doomed party members from their deathtraps and then proceeds to kick the crap out of Mithos with Lloyd and the rest of the party]].
*** Or alternately, [[spoiler: Zelos's final battle before his death where he gets those angel wings]] is absolutely awesome, [[spoiler: even if he did lose]]. This troper was madly pushing the RESTART button on her Gamecube afterward [[spoiler: to make him come back]].
** Kratos gets his when you beat Kvar. Largely because Kvar killed [[spoiler: his wife]], Kratos, is, needless to say, a bit peeved. So, we get the following: *stabs Kvar* "feel the pain..." *stabs him again* "of those inferior beings..." *stabs him one last time* "as you burn in hell." For this troper, who didn't really like Kratos much, that cemented his role as a pure {{Badass}}.
** Lloyd. "Rise, Giant Kharlan Tree!"
** [[AwesomeButImpractical I WILL SHOW YOU... DIVINE JUSTICE!!!!!]]

* The OVA gets some truly awesome moments.
** When Iselia is being attacked, Dirk joins Lloyd and Genis, and can be seen bashing up Desians with a [[{{BFS}} Big Friggin' Hammer]]
** When Sheena attacks the company in an AbsurdlySpaciousSewer, she opens up the battle by jumping at Lloyd's face, and slapping a card on his chest. The physical force of her strike sends Lloyd flying, and then the card ''explodes''. This troper had to rewind the video to confirm what he had just seen.

** In the next episode, the Kvar moment is given some new awesomeness. As Kratos ends Kvar, he delivers the same line, but instead of three stabs, it's one stab that ''impales Kvar and comes out the other side'', with plenty of blood. Awesome.
*** Oh, and just a bit later, the whole "we shouldn't be using Expheres" scene happens, and instead of the resolution that the game gives, the OVA shows that Lloyd and Genis went about battling the next Seal Guardian ''without their expheres.'' A feat that's flat out said to be impossible in-game.
** The Fourth Episode is Full of these.
*** Kratos: "Sacred Powers, Cast thy Purifying Light upon these corrupt souls! JUDGMENT!" (Cue lasers from the heavens and countless Dragon riders being erased from existence)
*** The Remiel Fight. It starts with unison attack from Genis and Raine (albeit one that isn't in the game). Then Remiel blasts a hole in the side of the Tower of Salvation with a huge ass laser beam. Lloyd tanks that, then proceeds to fire off a massive Demon Fang of Epic Proportions, that sends Remiel into a tree, which shatters from the impact.

** Then, Kratos retaliates against Sheena. Diving at her, he jabs her in the stomach with the hilt of his sword, and then turns around and roundhouse kicks her in the stomach. Sheena does a couple ninja-flips backward, and then attempts to cast something (WHAT she was trying to cast is a mystery, at this point in the story).

* Give one to Colette who in a lot of the OVAs was a Damsel, was given the her time to shine when she blasted the Shit out of Yggdrasil with a Grand Cross. Bonus points for being one of the few attack to damage the guy and give Regal the opening to triple kick the bastard flying across the room.

* The way the party blackmail the Pope, with Raine both giving him the poison and then interrogating him before giving him the antidote, and Presea holding an ''axe'' to his face.
* Blowing up the Palmacosta and Asgard human ranches is pretty satisfying, even with the cheesy graphics.

* The OVA makes the entire final fight this for Mithos, as he gets to show off exactly what happens when you fight a four thousand year old MagicKnight who ''hasn't'' gone soft. The party barely manages to land a hit on him and even when he decides to finish things in a one-on-one swordfight against Lloyd, he only loses out of choice.
