[[folder: Ethan Mars ]]
* Defeating a thug in "The Shark" trial by killing or knocking him down.
* The time when the police are raiding the hotel and Ethan's mad dash to get out of there; it all culminates in him [[spoiler: depending on the player giving up when surrounded by cops or jumping three floors to the concrete below, getting up and carjacking a cab all to Blake saying "Holy Fuck!"]]
* Any of his trials is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
** The Bear has him picking up a car and using it in an absolutely nail-biting chase sequence, dodging oncoming traffic, construction workers, and even cops near the end.
** Special shoutout goes to the Lizard, which has him ''cutting off part of his finger'', SCREAMING. [[IronWoobie This does not stop him]].
[[folder: Madison Paige ]]
* [[spoiler:Hitting Paco Mendes with a lamp and holding him at gunpoint]].
* Also in the chapter with Paco Mendes, when she [[spoiler:vocalizes an orgasm to throw off his bodyguard and keep him from entering the private room]]. Crosses over into a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
* [[spoiler:Going to the warehouse past the police by motorcycle as she almost run over them, including Blake]].

[[folder: Norman Jayden ]]
* Getting Mad Jack to surrender by [[spoiler:''threatening that he is going to blow up the gasoline'']].
* Saving Ethan from RabidCop Blake by throwing him to a wall and ''punching him in the face''.
* "Blake, you are an unbalanced, psychopathic asshole!"
* Pretty much every time he [[WhatTheHellHero calls out Lieutenant Blake]] is a CMOA. If Blake gives him a hard time for [[spoiler: not shooting Nathaniel]], Norman just calls Blake a sissy.
** Or, alternatively, tells him with an impatient and annoyed tone that things ended up going well, adding a firm "don't bust my balls with your post-mortems, alright?" Blake doesn't even say anything in response.
* [[spoiler:Has a CMOA from beyond the grave when he gives Blake a scare by putting on the ARI sunglasses]].
* [[spoiler:Having Blake and Perry suspended for Ethan's death if he survives]].
* When a smug guard tells him he doesn't ''speak cop'', he grabs him by the neck and yells "Watch my lips, asshole, because I've got no time to translate."
* Jayden may just be a profiler, but that doesn't mean he doesn't know how to throw down! Considering his fight scenes are some of the longest, action pact, and most intents fights in the game.
