* In the DS Spaceship RPG ''VideoGame/InfiniteSpace'', Niall Eremon, commander of a huge Lugovalian starship fleet, [[spoiler:batters Mogilek Novikov's flagship, and him, in an effort to bring down Eremon with him, attempts to ram the carcass on Eremon's ship just to bounce off and explode, and later having Eremon killing Nia Lochlain, Yuri's(the protagonist) mentor and love interest]], finds himself facing him 10 years later [[spoiler:and Yuri gets his revenge on him by shooting his ship down to scrap metal, forcing Eremon to ram his ship onto Yuri's ship just to bounce off much like Novikov did with him, dying in the most humilliating way possible]] with the game's voiced theme song playing in the background during all the battle, is one of the most epic CMOA in all of history.

* In Franchise/StarOcean: Till the End of Time, Fayt awakening to his power... and blasting a Vendeeni ship out of the sky with a huge beam of energy. Keep in mind that Fayt is, for all intents and purposes, a 19-year-old boy, and he just destroyed a huge battle cruiser that several high-class ships couldn't damage. With ONE attack.

* VideoGame/{{Vexx}} confronting Dark Yabu is awesome enough, but if you do the right things, you can [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments make Vexx flip Dark Yabu off]] in the cutscene.
** The ending to VideoGame/{{Vexx}} is also awesome through and through. All the torture of the game is well worth it to see that ending.

* Mario Party DS deserves a mention because unlike in the other Mario Party games, you can fight Bowser in the final mini-game with bare hands and feet instead of wands or any other items (not that they're uncool). Bowser has a magic belt and what does your character do? Beat him to a pulp of course!

* Geoff Keighley, someone who's 'Gaming should be all-inclusive' mindset and his ability to shake hands and hang out with the big names of the industry has gotten him a reputation as a bit of a sell-out, made it perfectly clear at the 2015 Video Game Awards that the reason Creator/HideoKojima wasn't available to accept the award won by ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV'' (which was accepted on his behalf by Kiefer Sunderland) was because [[ExecutiveMeddling the higher-ups at Konami forbid him from attending due to the spat that led to Kojima leaving the company.]] The VGAs are a means of recognizing the hard work and dedication that video game developers deserve so it's a massive slap in the face for Geoff's philosophy. In less than stellar terms. He basically told Konami that they weren't welcome for the way they treat the people who make their games, a move that would very much mean his being blacklisted by the company. [[ThePowerOfFriendship Because he considered Hideo Kojima a friend and chose to side with him instead.]] That takes balls...

[[folder: Rock Band]]
* In ''RockBand'', whenever you beat a Solo Tour or get into the Hall of Fame, you and your band get your own crowning moment of awesome in a giant fireworks show. This is made all the more sweet if you just beat the likes of Green Grass and High Tides or Run to the Hills on Expert. Especially Run to the Hills -- "The only way to light up a stage is with a big-ass gong!"
** This pales in comparison Rock Band's predecessor, ''Guitar Hero'', where, after defeating Bark at the Moon's blistering last solo, the lights dim, the chanting begins, and your avatar [[PillarOfLight ascends into the air in a Pillar of ROCK]].
** Guitar Hero II and III were pretty good as well--in the former, after you beat Free Bird, you're abducted by a neon-lit UFO, which flies into distant space leaving a constellation that reads, "LIVE AND LET ROCK", and in the latter, you defeat Satan (aka Lou) in a rock-off to a metal version of The Devil Went Down to Georgia featuring no less than 26 guitar solos, causing him to be sucked into a chasm of swirling souls; your band escapes Hell on ''flying motorcycles with bat wings''. And just when you thought you were done, you see a loading screen appear that reads "Good Luck". The credits begin to roll, a note highway appears, and Through the Fire and Flames, by Music/Dragonforce, begins to play.
* Harmonix snagging the Beatles from right under Activision's nose counts as an epic CMOA, especially considering the Beatles have yet to enter even ITUNES! [[http://kotaku.com/5070885/mtv-and-apple-corps-join-forces-for-beatles-music-game Source]].
** It was all MTV, really, not Harmonix (which, though an impressive feat without a doubt, is not that awesome). That said, look at the staff listing of Harmonix on their Wiki entry. If you recognize even one name from that listing (and no doubt you will), you'll understand how significant and amazing this staff is. If there's such a thing as a Crowning Recruitment of Awesome, this is it.

* ''DrillDozer'' has you go through an entire game using a drilling mechanic, and for the final boss fight, [[spoiler:the Dozer loses all of its drilling gears. The heroine, a school-age girl with pink hair, then proceeds to punch the main villain right through his blazing energy shield for a one-hit kill, bisecting his mask and launching him off the chair in the process. Yeah.]]



* The finale of ''VideoGame/ChibiRobo'', which not only perfectly connects and explains all the bizarre, seemingly-disconnected elements of the plot, but pits your character, a tiny, four-inch tall robot with only a low-powered sonic blaster used mainly to remove stickers, against a [[spoiler: Boombox-sized, quadrapedal spider robot that incapacitates the Sanderson family and hangs them from the ceiling, attaches a ton of random junk to its body (including a refrigerator) to protect itself, and ''flips the entire living room upside down''.]] Yet, against all odds, you manage to prevail-not only physically, but in your main, ongoing goal to make people happy and restore harmony to easily the most fucked-up family ever.
** The only moment that could possible hope to match is [[spoiler: the resurrection of Giga-Robo]]. You would think a robot just walking upstairs and outside isn't what you'd call awesome. You'd be dead wrong.



* In PhantomBrave, Marona manages to complete another job, [[spoiler:the second stop Raphael job (Again, the Raphael in this one is fake, though the real one does show up)]]. When ready to collect her reward, the elder refuses to pay (Like much of her customers up to this point) through some misguided loophole and goes off on her for being a greedy Chroma. When [[spoiler:the real Raphael hears of this]], he starts causing trouble for this village, causing the elder to go back on what he said and promises to pay Marona if she were to take care of [[spoiler:Raphael]]. Her response?
-->'''Marona:''' [[spoiler:I'm sorry, sir. I cannot accept. Have a nice day.]]



* ''[[BuiltWithLego LEGO]] RockBand'': Lego Iggy Pop? Good. Lego Music/DavidBowie? Cool. Lego [[{{Queen}} Freddie Mercury]]? ''Awesome''.

* Harry may inadvertently be the baddest ass in human history. If you make it to the fight against the true final boss with no ammo of any kind, the sheer heroic display of shiny brass balls on Harry's part [[spoiler: ''makes God commit suicide in terror of the man''. Well, that might be the reason it happens]].
* Eddie, of ''SilentHill2'', doesn't really give an impression of awesomeness at first; being described as an obese and useless man, which for the most part he is. However, after Silent Hill drives him completely nutzoid, he has some of the best lines in the game.

** Every single time Pyramid Head is on screen is a CMOA. He is always either raping a fellow monster or doing something just as brutal and despicable. However, his best appearance is his first. After wandering around a pitch black generally creepy but overall uneventful apartment complex for a little while, you hear a scream. As you walk down the darkened hallway, which had previously been devoid of activity, James's radio starts going absolutely crazy with static, despite there being no discernible threat. Finally, James reaches a fence blocking him from the rest of the hallway. Just on the other side, barely visible in the shadows, standing completely still, is Pyramid Head. He is just looking at you doing nothing, but the combination of his huge knife, the overwhelming radio static, and the terrifying lighting, plus the slightly jarring and unorthodox lack of a cutscene to introduce arguably the most memorable antagonist in the series, make this an epic moment of creepiness and possibly the most ridiculously awesome character entrance in gaming history.
*** Pyramid Head gets a great CMOA in ''Homecoming,'' because the new look for his Great Knife is quite possibly the only bit of visual symbolism in the game that [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic actually fits the plot,]] and what he ''does'' with it makes it even better.
** After realizing what he did and that his ordeal through Silent Hill was his punishment, James gets one himself when he stares down the two Pyramid Heads and coldly declares that it's time to end things. The Pyramid Heads actually take a step back.
** James gets another one when he comes across his first Patient Demon. He stares it down, and then picks up a 2X4 to beat the monster to death. It's even more badass when the player picked up the chainsaw, but used the plank anyway.

** After Dmitrii spontaneously dies during his battle with Soma, and his soul is absorbed by Soma, [[spoiler: He later is released and possesses a doppleganger to gain a new body. He then explains he did it so he could touch Soma's soul and copy the power of dominance.]]
** When Soma meets Dario Bossi for their second fight. Dario has fused with a powerful fire demon to become insanely powerful. Soma tells him "I will show you why you can't be the new dark lord." He then ([[spoiler: if you're going for the good ending]]) proceeds to [[spoiler: go inside the mirror to defeat the fire demon Aguni, completely removing all of Dario's power]]. Owned.
** Of course, there's also the worst ending, where [[spoiler: Soma goes along with the villain's plan and becomes the new dark lord. She starts to give a Bond villain speech about how she's won and he's done exactly as she wanted, and he tells her to shut up and kills her.]]
* From Order of Ecclesia. In the Lighthouse level Shanoa is chased all the way to the top of the lighthouse by a giant crab that just won't die. There's nothing at the top but a big elevator and, of course, nowhere left to run. So what does she do? Jump in the elevator and toss a one-liner. The elevator then proceeds to drop down to the bottom, taking the crab with it, with massive amounts of blood spraying in all directions before finally crushing the boss into paste. Considering this is one of the more annoying bosses for new players, this probably got a bit of a HELL YEAH.

Then she finally reaches Castlevania and prepares to finish her mission while her theme, [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic An Empty Tome]] plays in the background.]]

The player's response? Essentially: "Stop whining, or I'll hit you again."]]

** There is only one way to make this more awesome. Playing ''[[Music/DragonForce Dragonforce's]]'' epic "Through the Fire and Flames" in the background. Hell Yeah.
* In ''Morrowind'''s ''Tribunal'' ExpansionPack, the Nerevarine ([[spoiler:ie, the player]]) gets one when [[spoiler: he kills PhysicalGod Amalexia.]]
** This is mirrored in ''Oblivion'''s ExpansionPack, when [[spoiler:the player kills Jyggalag, a god even stronger than Amalexia.]] Of course, Jyggalag being [[spoiler:[[TragicMonster Sheogorath]]]], this also counts as a TearJerker to some..
*** He didn't necessarily KILL Jyggalag, just kept beating the crap out of him until he calmed down. Which is even more impressive, given
press conference that will basically sweep the source of Jyggalag's anger conspiracy that was [[spoiler:his betrayal by all of his fellow gods, having the Order which he so loved taken from him, being turned into a being events of Chaos (that which his entire purpose for being was to oppose), and being forced to watch himself build monuments to this Chaos, being let free once every era to try and fix what he had done, but only having enough time to destroy it all before reverting and watching himself rebuild it. The player's response? Essentially: "Stop whining, or I'll hit you again."]]

[[folder: Elite Beat Agents]]
* Every time someone fully does what they are being for in ''EliteBeatAgents''. You know that anyone who's played the game will have at least one character who invokes this feeling in them. For example...
** A washed up baseball player saving three kids and a amusement park from a volcano monster to the song The Anthem.
** A mom weather lady changing the weather to go to the park with her son to the song September.
** A cat saving a baby from certain doom while the song ABC is playing.
** The magician mathematician saving everyone in a Las Vegas casino for robbers with magic to the song "Rock This Town".
** A little girl and her mother who tries to keep her father's memory alive so hard that she actually brings him back to life. Doubles as Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, too.
** That grouchy truck driver who takes on a horde of zombies and a monster fungus with only nuts as ammunition while the song Survivor is playing?
** The intro to Jumpin' Jack Flash which has [[spoiler: the girl from the Christmas level start a chant that rescues the agents from their petrified status]].
** A taxi driver driving his car ''up the side of a building''. To the song ''Sk8er B0i'', of all things.
** The whole of the final stage might as well be here, from the beginning of Without a Fight, to the aforementioned intro, to [[spoiler: the dancing around the world with chants of "HEY!" leading into the final section, to the ending far more epic than a [[WidgetSeries quirky rhythm game like this]] has any right to be.]]
* But the best part is when Agent Spin yells [[spoiler: Music is ALIVE!]]
* On top of that, the precursors to this game, "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!" and its sequel "Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2," had comparable endings to that!
** Speaking of Ouendan 2's ending, Tasian's LetsPlay of the final level qualifies. In fact, he got so inspired by the events that happened there, he decided to play it with ''two styli.'' [[http://www.dailymotion.com/Tasian/video/6796882 Watch it in all of its awesomeness here.]]

[[folder: Eve Online]]
* The Defiants' YouShallNotPass moment, holding off the ''entire Amarr Navy'' while covering the retreat of three fleets of ships which had just pulled off the single largest attack on the Amarr Empire ever planned or staged, would probably have counted ''if they'd have let us watch it''.
* Conversely, they let us watch Jamyl Sarum [[spoiler: taking down an entire capital fleet with a single shot from her WaveMotionGun]], and that definetely qualifies as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome (if also a bit of an AssPull).
* EVE, as an MMO designed entirely around the idea of empowering the players to influence the ''entire galaxy'', is likely chock full of both documented and untold stories rich with CMOA. From the above mentioned moments of [[MagnificentBastard true villainy]], to tales of epic space battles including upwards of 800 players, to stealing multi-billion ISK Titan-class capital ships.
* Titans cost over $10,000 total and take several months to build and to train pilots for. They had never been destroyed in real active combat. Until [[Website/SomethingAwful Goonfleet]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BbYvI2ELXM did it]].
** Goonswarm then outdid themselves [[http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=990381 by disbanding BoB.]]

[[folder: God Hand]]
* The fights between Gene and Azel, from the [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic awesome]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7izuEcqKjY music]] to the epic pummel matches, are considered the high points of ''VideoGame/GodHand'' by many. And when you've got in a high point in a game that revels in being over-the-top, you've got something special.

[[folder: Vagrant Story]]
* This scene in ''VideoGame/VagrantStory'':
-->'''Callo Merlose''': Where are the reinforcements?
-->'''Ashley Riot''': [[BadassBoast I]] ''[[BadassBoast am]]'' [[BadassBoast the reinforcements]]. (Cue [[ThemeMusicPowerUp rousing orchestral theme]].)
** Sydney Losstarot of the same gets a scene of his own - the opening scene, in fact, where Ashley shoots him dead with a crossbow before he has much time to react... only for Sydney to stand up, casually remove the crossbow bolt from his chest, and then summon a dragon before taking off.
* Sydney Losstarot's scene with [[spoiler:Jan Rosencrantz]] deserves a mention too:
-->'''[[spoiler:Jan Rosencrantz]]''': (slashes Sydney's arm off) Then keep your immortality. Here, let me lighten your burden! Ah ha ha ha! ... Hah, heh...what?
-->'''Sydney Losstarot''': (stands, picks up his arm, and sticks it back on) I gave my limbs to the gods. Perhaps I will add yours to the offering!
