* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-06-11 Tedd, fighting school uniform policy.]] As the strip title says '''"You'd Have to be Han Solo to Look Cooler in a Vest"'''. Hell yes. [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2008-06-13 It gets even better in the next comic]]. One of the greatest {{Glasses Pull}}s ever.
* Grace's scene of UnstoppableRage [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2004-04-19]].
* ImagineSpot or not, [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-04-23 this]] is Elliot's CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2009-06-03 "You are trespassing."]] I suspect this will only be the beginning of something epic. The comic's title sums this up: "Bravest. Hall Monitor. EVER."
--> "Have you no honor?" "The lives of my students are more important."
** The following comics proceed to ''escalate'' the awesome, as if Dan is trying to outdo himself.
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-12-25 Elliot standing up for Ellen]], even though she's spent her entire existence so far as a CardCarryingVillain.
** Matched in the same strip by Mr. Verres proving a ReasonableAuthorityFigure.
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-12-05 Ellen]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-12-07 versus]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-12-08 goo]]
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-03-12 X-Men have taught me better than that]]
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-04-23 Tedd explains (and defends) his pervertedness]]
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2004-02-18 It's hard to look bad ass when using fairy powers,]] but Nanase manages.
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1009 Especially in later strips.]]
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2004-05-14 Nioi's forcefield]]
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2007-08-14 Susan makes an entrance]]
** Leading directly into Tedd's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]], mentioned above
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-09-01 Mr. Verres has investigated.]] Awesome because it makes perfect sense, but you totally don't see it coming.
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2009-09-27 Nanase never stops fighting]]
* [[spoiler: Chaos]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2009-08-26 takes]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2009-05-26 care]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2009-09-05 of everything]], without actually [[ChessMaster doing]] anything.
* Nanase has proven she is willing to die for Ellen. [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2009-10-09 Her resolve stuns even Abe.]] Hell, everything between the 2009-10-09 comic and the 2009-10-29 comic is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Nanase.
* Mr. Verres goes [[PapaWolf Uncle Wolf]] [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2009-11-03 here]], disproving everyone who thought he was just a BumblingDad.
* Magus openly defying [[spoiler: Pandora]] despite knowing what she's capable of.
* Elliot and Noah's race through Swedekea. One panel has them somehow blowing up a large section of the sale floor, although that ''probably'' didn't happen.
* Susan hesitates, then fails, to pull out a HyperspaceMallet to punish two hilariously rude comic book geeks speculating about her being an alien. [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2010-04-19 Then Catalina gets them from behind]] with a plastic toy of {{Thor}}'s hammer.
** Another one for Susan occurs during Grace's genderbender-themed party. After too much thinking into the fact that she is a man, Susan flashes back to her childhood trauma, begins to freak out, and looks for a place where she can be alone. She goes to the basement and finds Justin, who is on the verge of tears over his own issues. [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2006-06-14 Her mind is being bombarded by painful childhood memories, but she manages to toss them aside so she can listen to Justin and try to help]].
** She pushes through ALL the memories of her father without missing a beat, which was one of the most tramatic events in her life that defined her personality (her alternate didn't experience it, and they're on two completely different sides of the spectrum), ignoring her past prejudices to help a friend in need.
* Dan can get one himself, for recognizing his own CerebusSyndrome, and making efforts to counteract it. As far as it can be told so far, quite successfully.
* Also, Justin gets one [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-09-24 here]]--Dan even says as much in the author commentary.
** Afterwards... "[[BigDamnHeroes Dude.]] I can '''[[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-10-01 fly]]'''."
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-03-12 Dunkels-parents]] provide steady supply of CrazyAwesome whenever they both appear. Especially when trying to [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-12-10 make a point]]. "Supper and alibis"...
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-03-15 Their explanation of Swedekea]] is EXTREMELY CrazyAwesome. Their sole purpose in the series might just to be Elliot and Ellen's awesome parents.
* Melissa getting promoted from a [[LoveMakesYouCrazy mad]] [[ClingyJealousGirl limpet]] to a Girl With Guts, instead of HoldingOutForAHero standing against the... uh... [[MixAndMatchCritters dracobulldog]] who knocked out the local "superhero" right before her eyes and trying first to stare it down and then to make it disappear in a {{puff of logic}}.
** Also, her epic one-liners as [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2011-04-26 the cavalry arrives.]] YouAreAlreadyDead with a SlasherSmile to boot!
* Abe vs. Raven, all the way. It's hard to make a swordfight badass at three pages a week, but Dan manages.
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-12-22 "Damien..is a dead man...]]"
* The "Death Sentence" arc has one for [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2011-11-01 Catalina and Rhoda]]: Catalina for making a BigDamnHeroes [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2011-10-31 entrance]] to rescue Rhoda from a charging [[FullBoarAction boar]], then using her [[WeaponizedCameras camera flash]] to scare it off; and Rhoda for managing to stop panicking, remember her own camera and join in on Catalina's plan rather than lie and wait for the all clear.
* So. Somewhere in the universe there is something called a 'Deathless Army of Rage', and said army apparently had its sights set on Earth. Past tense, because [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2012-01-10 this]] happened. Apparently, all that's needed to protect the world isn't magic or force, but [[spoiler:a whiteboard and some VerbalJudo]]. It's the nonchalant hands-in-the-pants-pockets (whilst staring up a ...''thing'' twice his size and half again as many limbs) that clinches it, though.
* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-07-18 "H-he moved that fast because I moved him! N-now stay back! I could e-easily *sniffles* destroy you a-and I will if you try to hurt the kitty again!"]]
** We know Grace is in no real danger. The point is she doesn't.
* Raven [[spoiler: [[CallingTheOldManOut calling out his immortal mother]]]] in [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2009-12-18 this strip]].
* In [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2012-02-07 this strip]] following [[spoiler:the death of the boar]], Grace delivers a deeply inspiring RousingSpeech for {{Actual Pacifist}}s everywhere.
* The entire part where [[spoiler: Angel Nanase and Angel Ellen]] take on not-Tengu and won.
* In a MundaneMadeAwesome fashion, [[LovableAlphaBitch Diane]] is vehemently [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1740 countering rumors]] that [[MistakenForGay Elliot is gay]].
** And she does so using well-thought out arguments, correct spelling, and proper grammar.
* From just a few incongruities, Susan not only deduces [[spoiler: Tom's]] attempt at manipulating her, she continues to push his buttons until he [[EngineeredPublicConfession reveals his true self]] to the entire cafeteria. That's right, Susan out-manipulates a supposed master-manipulator. Then [[KirkSummation she verbally tears him a new one]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1794 here.]]
** She gets another shortly after, when she meets with Ashley, [[spoiler:Tom's ex]]. Ashley feels like an idiot, since Susan figured out in one day what it took her two months to discover. Susan delivers an inspiring and spot-on speech, assuring Ashley that [[spoiler:Tom]] is the only one to blame for his manipulations, and that Ashley should ''never'' feel it's her own fault she was tricked. Even more awesome was that this was also in response to the fans, [[FanDumb some of whom were suggesting that Ashely was an idiot to have been manipulated for two months.]]
* Tedd's character development of awesome. In the beginning, he was a ChivalrousPervert who was often the victim of Sarah's hammers. But after [[spoiler: experiencing some very crude flirtations and finding out that some guys have been hitting on Grace the same way]] his [[DisproportionateRetribution first instinct]] is to find an immortal and make them replicate the magical effects of the hammers. [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1881 And not just for Grace, but for all women.]]
* It's very [[MundaneMadeAwesome minor]] compared to, well, pretty much ''all'' of the other examples here, and very plausible in real life (Dan himself actually did this), but while playing against Tensaided in the [[TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering Magickal Cards]] tournament, Sarah drew the fifth and last energy needed to summon [[PurposelyOverpowered O.P. Aludrakrala]], but paused when she remembered Tensaided hadn't summoned anything when he had three energy himself. So she instead attempted to summon "Beefy Lycanthrope" instead, and Tensaided countered with Cancel Spell to stop the summon, just as Sarah planned.
* Sarah [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1911 instantly shuts down]] Larry's attempts to hit on her, instead using their card match to get to know him and attempt to educate him on how to treat women respectfully. When the latter [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1921 proves to be futile]]...
--> '''Sarah:''' '''''That's it!''''' I'm ''done'' trying to educate you. I'm out.
--> '''Larry:''' You... forfeit?
--> '''Sarah:''' ''Forfeit?'' Hell no. '''''I WILL BREAK YOU.'''''
** After losing the match to Sarah, Larry mutters that she's a "[[SourGrapesTropes fake geek lesbian]]". Cue [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1943 Tensaided popping over to]] give him a verbal smackdown.
