* The climax of most Super Secret SecretSquirrel episodes is basically Secret doing something awesome to outsmart the villain, but Secret beating [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgiq3EsmlCM One Ton]], a villainous panda who Secret can't harm, since panda's are endangered and harming them is illegal, was the best. Instead of hurting him, Secret just sits on his head, not doing anything, nonchalantly jumping out of the way every time One Ton takes a swing, [[DeadlyDodging causing him to beat himself up instead]]. One Ton finally decides to smash him with a car, which, of course, just ends with One Ton knocked out and Secret arresting him... for illegally endangering a panda.

* Ben Ravencroft, played by TimCurry, revealing that he had been playing the heroes for saps for the entirety of "''Scooby Doo and The Witch's Ghost,''" and the proceeding to summon the BigBad using ''real'' magic. [[AnimationBump The animation as he casts the spell]]...just... wow.

* In ''MyLittlePony And Friends'', one of the serials involves the Ponies staving off the approach of a city from another dimension -- and this was a [[AnimationAgeGhetto completely nonviolent adventure show]] for girls. If stopping an ''extradimensional invasion'' without any violence at all isn't awesome, nothing is.

* After Korgoth from ''KorgothOfBarbaria'' effortlessly disposes of a group of {{mook}}s he is threatened by a GiantMook. When the big guy goes on for too long, Korgoth responds by ripping off all the skin on the front of his body, ([[TalkToTheFist mid-threat, no less]]) then reaches onto the bar, tosses a batch of alcohol into the open wound, then sets the guy on fire.

* In the first Max Fleischer ''{{Superman}}'' cartoon short, a mad scientist is wreaking terror on Metropolis with his death ray. The Man of Steel acts as a human (well, Kryptonian) shield against the ray's beam, pushing it it back toward its source. When he gains the upper hand against the beam's force, the scientist jacks up the power level, and the ray pummels Supes with blasts of energy, knocking him about noticeably, and eventually slamming him back to the ground (remember, this is the less powered Superman of 1940). But just when it looks like he might be down for the count, Supes gathers up all his strength, and starts ''punching'' the beam back up to its source, his punches landing in time with the triumphant strains of Sammy Timberg's theme music.

* In ''WarPlanets'' (aka ''ShadowRaiders''), the heroes are fighting the Beast Planet as it about to fire one of its weapons and destroy one of the Allied worlds while Tekla is refusing to participate while she investigates some strange findings inside one of the planets. At the climax, the heroes are failing, the weapon is about to fire, but Tekla finds out a major secret as the Beast's weapon is fired; each of the planet is designed with it's own propulsion and navigational control system. When Tekla realizes what the planet can do, she orders an evasive maneuver and the heroes in space are stunned to see a whole planet suddenly ''dodge the Beast's shot!'' They also realize only Tekla could have brought this miracle about and now they have more options fighting the Beast than they ever imagined possible.

* ''GormitiTheLordsOfNatureReturn'': Nick, TheShortGuyWithGlasses, gets a Moment of Awesome in the ''first'' episode already, which may be one of the reasons why he's such a [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular character]]. As [[SmugSnake Lavor]] is boasting in front of his own men about his plan to conquer Gorm and the Earth thanks to the Sulphur Stone, and showing off a captured Toby for good measure... Nick leaps up to the Sulphur Stone with a little help from Jessica and proceeds to single-handedly ''absorb'' it. For the record, the Sulphur Stone was at least twice as big as Nick in his Lord of Earth self is... and the resulting display is such that Lavor and his minions are sent running away in panic! And when all is finally over, Nick also adds a touch of funny by 'tagging' his brother! Watch the scene in its entirety [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fWgF1-dso0 here]].

* ''SecretSaturdays'' When Fiskerton [[spoiler:saves Zack's life by beating some webbing out of one of Argost's henchmen to stop a train, and is dragged off by Argost afterwards]].
* ''WallaceAndGromit''. The Wrong Trousers. The titular heroes are locked into a deadly train chase with the evil penguin thief Feathers [=McGraw=]. The aforementioned dastard switches tracks, leaving our heroes destined for a painful crash. However, at the last possible second, Gromit notices a nearby box of "spare track". He grabs it and begins ''laying track in front of the speeding train'', guiding it to safety, his paws a blur.

* ''SamuraiJack'': The episode featuring the eight adamantium (y' know, the stuff that ''Wolverine's skeleton and claws are made out of'') robots, when Jack calls for strength enough to defeat the last... and the blow he deals is enough to make a robot say, just before utter destruction:
--> '''Lead Robot:''' UNBELIEVABLE.
** Samurai versus Ninja.
** The entirety of III. Jack in Feudal Japanese armor versus an army of robotic drones. The end result is too awesome for words. It ends with a pan shot of Jack on top of a mountain of enemies, covered in [[strike:blood]] oil, waving the flag of the allies we was protecting. The end of the three part pilot, and the intro for many to just how amazing Samurai Jack was going to be.
** The Scotsman's wife. That is all.
** When Jack finally finds a time portal, he has to defeat the big blue guy guarding it. Said man pull out a gun and begans shooting. Jack tries to throw attention off of him by throwing some ninja stars left over from a previous fight at him. The guards' response? Pull out ''another'' gun and shoot the stars out of the air, a bullet apiece, all while keeping the other gun pointed at Jack.
** "Jack and the Spartans". Samurai Jack plus Frank Miller's ''300''. [[{{HSQ}} Holy SHIT]].
** Episode XXXIV, "Jack and the Swamp Creature". In a bid to find another route to the past, Jack is led by a loudmouthed hermit, who is [[PaperThinDisguise totally not]] Aku in disguise, to find the Armor of the Titan, Chronos. Jack faces numerous obstacles, but succeeds in gathering the helmet and gauntlets. The Hermit then summons Chronos to destroy Jack, berating the Samurai for [[GoodIsDumb being so stupid]]- until Chronos begins to fall apart. Jack emerges from the swamp, holding up the Eye of Chronos- the crystal from the helmet- and calls out Aku for his own complacency and laziness, telling how he saw the trap coming, before hacking at Aku with his magic sword. Aku manages to escape, but with the Eye, Jack may have the tool he needs to finish him once and for all.
--> '''Jack:''' "Run, you cowardly shadow! For you know your destruction is at hand. It is just a matter of ''time''.
** Episode XIV "Jack Learns to Jump Good". The beginning has Aku in a field taunting Jack by playing keep away with a time portal. The ending sees Jack returning, only now having gained the ability to [[InASingleBound jump very very good]].
--> '''Aku:''' "Samurai fool! Your efforts are in vain again. This gateway to the past is once more beyond your rea-"
--> ([[ShutupHannibal Jack lunges 50 feet in the air at Aku]])
--> '''Aku:''' "YOU CAN FLY?!"
--> '''Jack:''' (with a badass smirk) "No. Jump Good."
--> (Cut to credits)
** Episode XLVII ''The Princess and the Bounty Hunters'': The entire episode is about five bounty hunters teaming up in order to take down Jack. They're all made out to be pretty awesome. Jack himself only shows up in the last minute of the episode, with no dialogue, and proceeds to completely demolish them before leaving.
** "Jack and the Lava Monster". Jack is attacked by a Norse warrior turned into the titular lava monster. At one moment Jack decides that their fight is pointless and decides to leave but the the monster '''pleads''' him to carry on as to fall in fair combat is the only way for him to rid himself of the curse and to ascend to Valhalla. Jack ''agrees''.
---> '''Monster:'''(having smacked Jack into a wall) "Rise, warrior! Rise! Honorably must I be defeated! I cannot let up!"
---> '''Jack:''' (ominously) "Do not worry. I have only begun to fight!"
** What about when he takes out the world's three greatest archers while blindfolded and then [[spoiler:sacrifices a chance at going home to rid the world of the evil wishing well]] in VII ''Jack and the Three Blind Archers''?
