* [[spoiler: Chuggaaconroy's]] victory at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iu9-I3AMu0g Magma Mountain]]. At first it seems like the computer will win, as it had 3 stars to the other players' one...then Jon [[spoiler:lands on Chance Time on the FINAL TURN, and causes Chuggaaconroy to swap stars with the computer. The computer gets two of the bonus stars, evening their scores, but it's then revealed that Chugga had a maximum coin count of exactly ONE COIN more than the computer's, earning him the final bonus star for the win. Chugga literally ''hugged'' Jon when this happened. [[FanDumb And before you say NCS was robbed of victory yet again,]] both he and Jon had less coins than the computer, thus, even if they had swapped stars during chance time, they would have lost due to being tied in stars but behind in coins.]]
** And remember, this wouldn't have been possible if Jon didn't get the Chance Time [[spoiler:at the two needed factors (Wario trading the stars)]], so give him credit!
** Actually, observing the count, [[spoiler:Jon or Tim could have won if they'd obtained the stars, had Chugga and Wario lost the 2v2 minigame that followed, which would have brought their coin counts just over Wario's. That being said, as the count turned out, had Jon gotten the stars, he would have LOST to the AI by ONE coin.]]

** Yeah... not going to happen (as shown in episode 14).

* Despite the difficulty he seems to find in [[PressXToNotDie pressing A to not die]], Tim is consistently awesome throughout the LP.

Of course, he follows this amazing feat by [[spoiler:bubbling right before the flagpole]], [[Funny/TheRunawayGuys but he may have had an ulterior motive for that, too.]]

* The final contestant had to beat the score of 3 points to win the grand prize. He blitzed through Screenshot, Tricky and Easy Questions, tying the score before picking the game-deciding category... which was the '''Brutal Question''' about three pilots (other than Captain Falcon) appearing in the first ''VideoGame/FZero'' game. He guessed the first two ([[spoiler:Samurai Goroh and Pico]]) relatively easy, then, after some time to think, picked [[spoiler: Dr. Stewart]] as the final one... ''and got it correctly'', stealing the victory on the last possible moment and earning a standing ovation from the crowd (and a [[PrecisionFStrike "Holy shit!"]] from Jon).

* In the final battle with Bowser, they do have to do the fight [[RuleOfThree three times]] due to deaths, but there are a couple moments in there. For example, Chugga is always the one to hit the first switch [[note]]first by running under Bowser, then using the Propellor Suit to get over him, and then just toasting him with fireballs[[/note]], which kind of makes sense considering he's Mario. There's also [[ButtMonkey Josh]] grabbing the final Star Coin during the third run (it was Jon the other times), and lastly Jon running through most of the final portion, only for Chugga to appear and get his bubble popped, then miss hitting the switch by a split-second.
