* CrowningMusicOfAwesome
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Just before the scene described above under CrowningMomentOfAwesome, Kinski delivers a truly classic "what the FUCK?!" look when one of the local magnates burns several high-denomination banknotes to show that he, literally, has money to burn.
** Fitzcarraldo arrives at the site of his failed Trans-Andean railway to strip it for parts - only to discover that the man he hired to sell tickets ''years'' earlier is still there, has kept the locomotive and the [[EpicFail 200 metres of rail]] in shape, and is now overjoyed that the project is on again. [[CringeComedy Ouch.]]

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: When the pulleys’ plan starts to work.
** Also when Fitzcarraldo tells off the local magnates who are, to say the least, skeptical of his plan: "I will outmillion you. I will OUTBILLION you!" and then stalks out, followed by his mistress (madam of the local bordello) and all her girls, noses haughtily held high in the air.
** And most definitely the last few minutes of the movies, when [[spoiler:after Fitzcarraldo's plan has gone down in spectacular flames, he's sitting disconsolate on the dock when he hears that the opera company he's been trying to attract to Iquitos is looking for a gig. Cue truly splendid endpiece, with said opera company floating down the Amazon into town on rafts, Fitzcarraldo in the lead with a cigar jauntily jutting out of his mouth. Also qualifies as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.]]

* CrazyAwesome: Dragging a boat of more than 300 tons over a hill using only ropes, pulleys and the force of the boat's engine. What else can you expect from WernerHerzog?
