* When fighting Indramon in the city, Takato uses a homemade blue card to digivolve Growlmon to Wargrowlmon. The first thing he does is destroy the giant horn thats been kicking their ass the whole episode and then he blasts Indramon point blank with an Atomic Blaster across the city. The scene can be a considered a Godzilla ShoutOut with Wargrowlmon roaring in victory.
* Goliath [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Activate!]] Cue CurbStompBattle.
* Rika had plenty of Crowning Moments after she joined the main crew one of them being when she and Renamon had the fight and Rika being worried about her still went out to help Renamon, without having her modify cards - instead, she picked up a sharp stick not caring for her own safety and stabbed Harpymon in the back. Then there was that moment when they were fighting that other Deva wanted to get Renamon to join them, but Rika never lost her faith in Renamon enabling her to digivolve into Taomon. Then there was the Song of Sukuyamon episode when Rika and Renamon biomerged for the first time. Then the all the other times when she saved her team mates asses from the D-Reaper agents, with little to no effort, while Ryo needed help defeating one agent. The same type that Rika treats as cannon fodder. Then there is the time where she decided to look for Impmon, ''despite all that he had done to them.''
** Even before that, Rika stands her ground and helps Renamon take on Dokugumon. Rika shows Renamon warmth and compassion for the first time. She not only gets the digivolution she wants, but also thaws a bit. Subtle but noticeable.
* The battle between [[Anime/DigimonTamers Gallantmon and Beelzemon]]. After Guilmon finally came down off his Deadly Upgrade, he and Takato pulled off a miracle and spent the entire next episode throwing down with Beelzemon using attacks powerful enough to level the scenery. The first evolution of Gallantmon could easily count as one of franchise's best moments considering Takato recovered from his fear and he was the first human who merged with a Digimon. Megagargomon vs. Zhuqiaomon qualifies as well.
** Beelzemon vs Gallantmon has one specific scene that stands to mind. Gallantmon (Dukemon) does the TheSlowWalk ([[{{Expy}} a la gohan]] while sounding like a giant mecha) out of (his own) flaming inferno, dons his cape (putting out the fire behind him) and declares that the devas are no match for him as he is charging his attack. No more words needed.
** Guilmon and Terriermon got another moment soon after said battles. When the [[BigBad Big bird]] turned out to be not quite dead, our heroes were completely screwed. The kids were protected only by waning shield while Zhuqiaomon was bearing down on them. Guilmon and Terriermon nodded at each other and then proceeded to "jump out of the shield" to take on a beast that neither of their highest [[EvolutionaryLevels digivolutions]] could kill to save the others.
* Gallantmon Crimson Mode.
** [[spoiler: "Do you want to fly, Gallantmon?"]]
** Specifically, when Gallantmon Crimson Mode punches the most powerful [[TheDragon Agent]] in the stomach and kills it. Bear in mind that the entity that this agent belonged to was feared by the Digital World's version of gods.
*** [[spoiler:"WE DO DESERVE TO EXIST! ('''''punch''''') YOU DON'T! ('''''fatality''''')"]]
* Jeri Katou has ''two'' Moments of Awesome in the Orochimon episode. First, she tells her Digimon partner [[MegaNeko Leomon]] "Don't worry about me! I can deal with drunkards!" when she's being ''kidnapped'' by Orochimon himself. Later, when her friends come for her and Leomon fights Orochimon, [[spoiler: she reveals that she has a ''very'' rare [=LadyDevimon=] card and uses it ''perfectly'' despite this being her first real battle, letting Leomon finish Orochimon]].
** One that overlaps with TearJerker is [[spoiler: when she goes up to Gallantmon when he's about to kill Beelzemon (as punishment for killing Leomon, ''her partner'') and ''stops'' Gallantmon from doing so, since she doesn't want more Digimon to die and knows that [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim nothing will bring Leomon back to life.]].]]
** [[spoiler:Finally snapping out of her HeroicBSOD and standing up to the D-Reaper]].
** [[spoiler: Heck, just surviving and moving on after all she's been through makes her infinitely awesome in the end.]]
* Despite the fact that it was the entire reason for him being introduced in the first place, Dobermon [[spoiler:sacrificing himself to give the Tamers the ability to Biomerge in the Real World]]. Also, Alice sticking with him even though she knew how it would end counts.
* Impmon's CMOA is after his HeelFaceTurn, when he runs to help the main characters in the fight against the D-Reaper, armed with nothing but a ''toy gun'' given from his twin Tamers. His sheer determination to help them in order to somewhat atone for what he did allows him to evolve all the way to Beelzemon Blast Mode, and he nearly dies in a desperate attempt to rescue Juri so that he could forgive himself for killing Leomon.
** "What I did... is beyond forgiveness. I don't need anyone to tell me that. No matter what I do, I can't change the past. But what I ''can'' do... is ''save Jeri''! ''[[FinishingMove CORONA]] [[WaveMotionGun DESTROYER]]''!!"
** "I'M GONNA SAVE YOU JERI, IF IT'S THE LAST THING I FREAKIN' DO!"
** [[spoiler:"FIST! OF! '''THE BEAST KING!!!'''"]]
* Henry's father Janyu Lee deserves a mention for demonstrating true martial arts in the episode "Boar Wars". He's so '''fast''' most missed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QlMSseG82I&feature=player_detailpage#t=460s it]]. Trully a hidden BadassBookworm, with a labcoat to match!
* In the dub of episode 26, which, by the way, was named [[BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure Kazu and Kenta's Excellent Adventure]] for added awesome, Jijimon and Babamon sound and act a LOT like Miracle Max and his wife from Film/ThePrincessBride.
* Terriermon gets one for being the first- and so far ''only''- partner Digimon to be the first to evolve, while not being the main hero's partner.
* Guilmon gets a few moments:
** In the 3rd episode seeing his fights with Renamon. He is entirely unaffected by Renamon's Diamond Storm, just standing there ignoring it. Later episodes show Renamon defeating Champion level Digimon with the same attack.
** His fight with [=IceDevimon=] definitely qualifies. After Kyubimon suffers a defeat, Guilmon gets a boost from Takato's Modify cards, and slams [=IceDevimon=]'s head into the ceiling then blowing him to pieces with Pyro Sphere. The victory is even sweeter seeing IceDevimon's arm hit the ground before dissapearing.
* Wargrowlmon defeating Vikaralamon.
** Once Takato realizes Guilmon will always be the same regardless of how powerful he becomes, Takato begins channelling power to Wargrowlmon. Wargrowlmon breaks free from the power orb holding him down the whole episode and charges Vikaralamon, tearing through another power orb in the process. He grabs Vikaralamon by the tusks and begins pushing him back, a pig larger than all the buildings around him. Then after the other Tamers Digimon perform some clean up control, he flips Vikaralamon over and finishes him off with Atomic Blaster.
* Zhuqiaomon gets one when he's the only Digimon seen in the Digital World fighting the D-Reaper days after the Tamers left the place.
** There were originally dozens of Mega level Digimon ready to fight the D-Reaper which includes replicas of BigBads from previous seasons Metalseadramon, Machinedramon and a few Diaboromon. None of them were seen after that.
* Grani on a constant basis.
** When he shows up in the Real World and him and Gallantmon kick the D-reaper's ass their first time.
** Yuggoth Blaster!
** Finally, Grani's [[spoiler:DyingMomentOfAwesome]]. You know the one.
* Calumon
** Shining Digivolution!
** Also [[spoiler: his YouAreNotAlone moment with Jeri in which he actually talks her out of her HeroicBSOD that she's been having for the past several episodes! What makes it extra awesome? He pretty much talked Jeri out of ''commiting suicide!'']]
* A BigGuyLittleGuy moment when Impmon and Calumon team up to save Jeri in episode 46. Calumon rushes to find Jeri while Beelzemon acts as TheBigGuy against the D-reaper agents in their tag team.
* The 3 Tamers bio-merging to Mega level for the first time in the Real World. They're able to put aside their worries to fight for a cause and kick some D-reaper butt.
* Takato and Guilmon's last bio-merge digivolution to Gallantmon before setting out to the final battle with the D-reaper. He jumps on Grani and gives a final goodbye to his parents not to worry. Even his parents think he looks awesome.
* The monster makers final plan to defeat the D-reaper. [[spoiler:To devolve the D-reaper they installed Juggernaut into Megagargomon to use in the D-reaper's weak spot. But in order for Megagargomon to pull it off he had to create a spin faster than the freaking speed of light! He does...]]
* Speaking of Terriermon, he performs a CMOA when he goes from being at death's door during his fight against [[spoiler:Zhuqiaomon]] to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu a knock out victory]] [[spoiler:after Biomerge Digivolving with Henry/Jenrya]], all while [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu making smartass insults to his opponent]].
** [[spoiler:Zhuqiaomon]] You Dare Insult ME!?
** Megagargomon: Yeah! [[BadassBoast And we'll insult you again!]]
** Dukemon in the Japanese version goes from being an adorable goofball as Guilmon to a hotblooded, noble warrior with a deep and commanding voice. This characterization made his scenes all the more impressive, especially the Beelzebumon fight.
*** This is especially evident as Guilmon and his evolutions are voiced by none other than Creator/MasakoNozawa, the Japanese voice talent of [[DragonBall Goku and his sons]]. While Guilmon first sounds like a combination of child Goten and Gohan, as he evolves more and more he sounds like adult Goku, culminating in Dukemon where he sounds almost exactly like Goku as a Super Saiyan.
