** The [[DarkerAndEdgier ''very first shot'']] shows Sam riding in a car through a Decepticon-occupied city, with dramatic drumbeats.

* Optimus kills the Driller. He flies in, the first time in this film we see him fly, and he goes MoreDakka on the giant metal worm. That doesn't seem to work, so he gains some altitude, shoots a hole through the building, and plows through the worm with his own body!
** And the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome music]] in this scene is the same epic tune that played when Optimus arrived in Mission City in the first movie!

** It begins with the Apollo 11 mission approaching the moon, accompanied by perhaps the most [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awe inspiring music]] put to film. In spite of a ''slight'' SpecialEffectsFailure, the approach is incredible.

*** After the MIB tell them to take some samples and get them home, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome cue the music.]] Heavy, dramatic, imposing. While credits for Creator/MichaelBay and Creator/StevenSpielberg flash up. And the camera zooms out from the ship. Plus this dialogue:

** The rest of the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome background music.]] It starts out as distorted, echoing drumbeats with silence in between, the distortion gradually growing with every beat until it sounds like the stock ringing-in-your-ears-after-an-explosion sound.

** It's entrance deserves special mention. The combination of [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome heavy music]] and [[{{NightmareFuel/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon}} Nightmare Fuel]] makes the scene quite memorable.

* The score here certainly qualifies as CrowningMusicOfAwesome

** "[[RousingSpeech Your leaders will now understand: Decepticons will never leave your planet alone. And we needed them to think we had gone. For today, in the name of freedom]], ''[[RousingSpeech we take the battle to them]]''." Cue an epic GondorCallsForAid[=/=]LockAndLoad montage of almost every Autobot transforming and gearing up for battle, while an epic rendition of [[{{CrowningMusicOfAwesome}} 'Arrival To Earth']] blares.

* Jerry Wang became an EnsembleDarkhorse, and it's not hard to see why. He stares down Bruce Brazos, gives Sam all the info on the conspiracy, and ''pulls a pair of guns on Laserbeak''. Sam may have balls, but Jerry defines CrazyAwesome.

* A Meta Example: This film was the fourth highest grossing film of all time, despite being one of the most flamed films ever. CriticalDissonance FTW!

* One for the writer: he made Sam's AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents tolerable, even endearing.

* During the battle with the Dreads, Dino/Mirage uses cables to attach to Hatchet and literally road skis across the road behind the Decepticon.

to:

* During The Dreads' entrance: Crankcase transforms, rips Simmons out of his car, then flips into the battle with air and knocks over a highway sign. Then Hatchet and Crowbar drive up the Dreads, signs like ramps and transform in midair to forms that look animalistic and demonic.
*
Dino/Mirage uses cables to attach to Hatchet and literally road skis across the road behind the Decepticon.



* Bumblebee and Sideswipe's "stealth force" modes look really freaking cool.



** The novelization takes this UptoEleven. Whereas the film had him & Sideswipe engaging the two remaining Dreads in a gunfight, the novel has ''five'' Dreads charging at the NEST base. Ironhide simply transforms, stands in their path, and becomes an Immovable Object, letting the 'Cons literally crash into him. Each of the Dreads is killed on impact, while Ironhide simply withstands the hits with little more than some scratches and being knocked back a bit. He then casually brushes Decepti-parts off of himself and quips "[[BondOneLiner They just don't make them like they used to]]".

* Sam and Simmons investigating the moon conspiracy. [[spoiler: They connect the disappearances and deaths of dozens of astronauts, scientists, and white collar businessmen; then Brains locates two Cosmonauts who may know more. They go to the Russian bar, buy their way inside, and ask straight out about the canceled moon missions. When the Russians pull guns on them, Simmons ''dares'' them to pull the trigger. Then Dutch reveals his HiddenDepths by beating up a couple thugs and stealing their guns. Once Simmons talks him down, the Cosmonauts agree to share what they know- and what they know is that the Decepticons stole a crap-ton of Spacebridge pillars from the moon wreck.]] Sam makes a quick deduction- the Decepticons only need one more thing to start their invasion. He calls Mearing to let her in on the loop:
--> '''Mearing:''' But we have the spacebridge!\\
[[spoiler: '''Sam:''' Mearing, you have five pillars. I just learned that they have ''hundreds'', you're doing exactly what they wanted you to do!\\
'''Mearing:''' (OhCrap face)\\]]
'''Sam:''' What do you need me to say to you? ''The Decepticons are coming for Sentinel Prime!''
