** Flight Time and Big Easy were U-turned in one of the legs. They not only quickly completed the second task, but caught up to and even passed some of the other teams, with the line "Double U-Turn that!"

* Even though they didn't win, you've got to hand it to Brent & Sean of TAR Canada 3 for managing to be good at many of the tasks and finishing first place in a good number of the legs. They were able to beat the more physically fit Gino & Jesse and Nick & Matt teams in some challenges such as the Curling Face-Off and the Waterskiing Challenge as well as completing the Needle In A Haystack Challenge faster than both teams. They probably could have won if they had pulled ahead, but even so, Brent & Sean did well for a team that had been underestimated during the whole race by the viewers and other teams. They were also the PluckyComicRelief team since Sean vomit every time he pushes himself or gets anxious.

* In the first ''Amazing Race Canada'' season, Tim Sr. managed to finish the final memory task with only 2 tries, even though most teams take more than an hour during such tasks, all despite having Parkinson's disease and the task being more complicated than usual since the teams had to remember Canada's provincial flags and flowers (which the Pit Stop Greeters wore). He singlehandedly led him and Tim Jr. to become the first parent/child team winners in the entire franchise, and he credits his wife for reminding him [[GenreSavvy to pay attention]] as a challenge like this would come up.

* Dustin & Kandice beating out the Fast Forward on leg 8 of Season 10, making them the only team to ever come from behind to win a leg in which a team won the Fast Forward (other teams have done it, but only because the team who won the Fast Forward was too far behind to win the leg... [[WhatAnIdiot or else they sat around all day drinking tea]]). Made even better by the constant shots of the two teams who had taken the Fast Forward standing around, laughing about how miserable Dustin & Kandice must be doing an Intersection with one of the "weak" teams, turning the entire leg into one extended DescriptionCut.

* Even though they didn't win, you've got to hand it to Brent & Sean of TAR Canada 3 for managing to be good at almost any task and finishing first place in quite a few legs. They beat the more physically fit Gino & Jesse and Nick & Matt in some challenges, including the Curling Face-Off and the Waterskiing Challenge as well as managing to complete the Needle In A Haystack Challenge faster than both teams. If they got ahead, they probably would have won, but even so, they did well for a team that was underestimated the whole race by viewers and the other teams. They are also the PluckyComicRelief team having Sean vomit every time he pushes himself or gets anxious.

* Zabrina and Joe Jer from Season 1 of ''The Amazing Race Asia'' became the first all-female team to win any version of the race, something the original version didn't see until season 17. Made more awesome by the fact that they had never won a leg and were one of the not athletic teams in that season, they never used a Yield or Fast Forward, and in the final leg they surged from third to first while facing off against two decent teams.
* Marc & Rovilson run in Season 2 of ''The Amazing Race Asia'', where they ended up having the best season finishing average in the history.
* In Season 1 of ''The Amazing Race Australia'', Sam & Renae enter the penultimate leg at a huge disadvantage; not only are they the only females left on a race with brute strength rewarded over all, but they have also been "Marked for Elimination", which is nigh unbeatable without a Fast Forward as seen in every other version to use it. Not only that, but there were several equalizers on the leg as well, clumping every team together, robbing them of their previous time advantage. Any other team would have been pulverised - instead, they breeze through the final part of the leg at an unfathomable speed, they manage to check in first to the mat despite of ''another'' penalty they got for accidentally taking a private coach instead of a taxi, beat every other team on that leg '''in spite''' of that penalty, and become the only team in the entire Amazing Race series to beat the previously unbeatable "Marked for Elimination" penalty. [[ActionGirl And a female team at that!]]
* Overlapping somewhat with Heartwarming, TAR Australia 2 had cops Shane and Andrew giving a child a little kangaroo toy after his grandfather helped him out during a task. What turns it into Awesome is when you look closely at the cops bags and you see that they've bought along a whole bag of them. Why? They ended up giving them out along the way to any kids who helped them out during the race in tasks.

* Natalie & Meaghan dominating TAR Canada 2, and Mickey & Pete for defeating them. Sure, they had the theoretical advantage of being gold medalists in Winter Olympics women's hockey, but they transcended their already renowned reputation with their well-rounded prowess in physical, mental, and navigational skills (ironically doing worst at the hockey task) and won over new fans with their positive attitude. With 7 leg wins and one of the highest leg placement averages in the entire franchise, they were not just seen as arguably the strongest female team, but one of the strongest teams, period. Although Mickey & Pete were middle-of-the-road for most of the race, they knew they had to be perfect to win over the hockey girls, and it showed in their near-flawless final leg.
