* First, this page needs to mention LetsPlay/{{slowbeef}}, creator of the idea of Let's Play-ing in video form.
* {{Helloween4545}}'s playthrough of [[FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]], specifically when he learns how to shoot grenades in midair and one-shots Replicas with flying kicks.
** A cooler example is in his LP of VideoGame/DeadSpace, when he's ambushed on the bridge by a bunch of Necromorphs. He uses the alt fire button for the pulse rifle he's holding. Isaac crouches down and part of the gun begins to spin, firing off shots in all directions. As [[AwesomeButImpractical ineffective as it is,]] it still looks awesome. Not to mention that he took down the first Brute he encountered while taking no damage.
* {{Coestar}}, a MineCraft [=LPer=], Colonized HELL in a mere 15 videos, and his attitude was "yeah, typical tuesday in hell, meh" for episode 7 or so onwards. He found hell kind of boring. HE FOUND HELL BORING. HOLY SHIT PEOPLE.
** YMMV, of course.
* Kikoskia's last stand in Doom 3.
-->'''Kiko:''' NO! I REFUSE TO DIE LIKE THIS!
* SSoHPKC's epic ghast kill in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TkTrS1WsMY&feature=BFa&list=PL66947FF503648F71 this video]].
** Even if you think that UberHaxorNova killed the ghast, he still killed it with nought ''but a goddamn'' '''ladder'''.
* Vicas's test post for Super Mario 64. [[SuperSmashBros No Hands. Feet only.]] [[http://bd.baldurk.org/2085#title Lethal Lava Land.]] And only one death too!
* In the Spoiler Warning [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jh835yhzj0&feature=feedu one year anniversary]], while playing ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' Reginald Cuftbert/[[VideoGame/BioShock1 Jack]] manages to "defeat" one of the terrifying monsters by [[spoiler:''standing upon its head and making it his personal mount'']]. And most of them aren't freaked out by this game.
* Medibot gets one during Wolfshirt's [[http://blip.tv/the-dnd-experience-on-ice/let-s-play-dnd-episode-34-act-4-4756754 Dungeons and Dragon's let's play]]. He has his character Miriam powerslide over to one of the enemies and rap at him so amazingly that the DM counts it as an attack of his choosing.
--> "Pick ''any'' damage. '''''Any damage'''''"
* [[SirSwearsALot Cybershell13]] deserves a mention here because of his hilarious, profanity-laiden, and extremely entertaining ''SonicTheHedgehog'' playthroughs.
* The Time Warrors and their LP of WarForCybertron. At about 2:40 in their third video, Megatron goes on about how he senses Cloakers in the room. Roboky, playing as Megatron, [[OffhandBackhand casually shoots at the balcony they were standing on and kills four of them in one shot]].
* You may not expect to find one in a cutesy game like VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn, but Medibot and Kaz are here to prove you wrong by turning into a giant robot and ''rocket-punching the heck out of Yin-Yarn''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3j_9fNvzl4#t=3m17s He barely gets a shot in!]]
* {{CrazyCommentaries}} gets one in during their Super Mario 64 Let's Play in this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgCBkuCu7c4#t=10m10s video,]] they were racing Koopa the Quick and they came to the part where they had to get past a bridge with wind blowing. Koopa looked like he pushed them off the bridge and onto the last platform, then they longjumped to the flag to eke out a victory by a mere 0.2 seconds
* The milleniumfrisbee in his LP of Paper Mario manages to beat most of the game with only one badge (a HP Plus badge) and on the boss fight with the Ice King, manages to get the spell to activate when getting the star points, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Brehzs8nNA0&feature=watch_response netting him 88 star points]] (beating {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}}'s record of 68 star points by 20).
* [=RaidouFrost=] pulls a string of these during the tail end of his LP of ''ShinMegamiTenseiI'', including taking down several bosses ''with [[AttackAttackAttack auto-battle]]''. Not to mention some of his {{Badass Boast}}s:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r6dyCVfdFo&t=8m43s Episode 53-1]]: "See what happens when you play with fire? That's ''carrying a railgun?''"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frq3DNjmnoQ&t=22s Episode 53-2]]: The pre-battle dialogue with [[spoiler:ArchangelMichael]]:
---> '''[[spoiler:Michael:]]''' "What kind of pathetic excuse for a savior are you?!" \\
'''[=RaidouFrost=]:''' "[[ShutUpHannibal I'm not a savior.]] [[OmnicidalNeutral I'm just here to kill everything so that the world doesn't get destroyed even more]]."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Rk-9yNKi4&t=6m45s Epsiode 54-1]]:
---> [[spoiler:'''Magnus:''']] "In the end, I couldn't beat you, Kazuya. You were always a step ahead of me." \\
'''[=RaidouFrost=]:''' "[[spoiler:[[LawfulEvil Darius]]]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech was always a step ahead of you. Hell,]] [[spoiler:''[[ClimaxBoss Ozawa]]'']] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech was always a step ahead of you.]]" \\
[[spoiler:'''Magnus:''']] "And I thought I had finally gotten power that [[RageAgainstTheHeavens surpassed God's]] too." \\
'''[=RaidouFrost=]:''' "Ha, that's a good one. [[ChaoticStupid A stray cat was probably more around your league.]]"
* {{Slowflake}} has had a few.
** Most notably, the fact that he has played through [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red]], [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Crystal]], [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Emerald]], [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Platinum]], and most of Soul Silver... WITH LESS THAN TEN FAINTS ALTOGETHER.
** His one-ball catches of Zapdos in ''Red'' and ''Platinum'' were awesome, and would probably make the average Pokemon gamer pretty jealous. However, his SoulSilver bout with Zapdos was... not as stellar.
** He also gets points for his [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Sonic 2 for Game Gear]] Let's Play, where he spent a long ammount of time hyping [[ThatOneLevel that stupid pipe thing]]... and then only died one time to it.
** In the same game, he explains a glitch[[note]]that makes the game spawn an extra seventh ball when he's rolling down the slope, a trick that is almost impossible to dodge][[/note] that makes the first battle with Robotnik [[ThatOneBoss very, very hard]] in the Game Gear installment. Some time later... he manages to jump between Robotnik and the extra ball, and from there to safety. He proceeds to [[CrowningMomentOfFunny freak the hell out]], [[NoIndoorVoice yelling and panting on a level on par with Chuggaaconroy's]], and explain that he was ''never'' able to clear it in two separate jumps.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/InvisibleGunslinger1 InvisibleGunslinger1]], upon learning that a close friend who is watching his playthrough of IWannaBeTheBoshy is going to the Marines soon, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYggujf1xqU vows to get through the world he is currently on and reach the next boss]], as his friend has said he wanted to see what the next boss is before he leaves. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RWOQ1WuZjw He not only does this]], but he also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BpswI5yrZI defeats said boss fight]] [[CurbStompBattle in record time]].
* In the spirit of Edward Lear, we hear a very rousing, albeit weird, yet amusing piece of impromptu poetry from a guy you least expect: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQFxXLdK7VM Raocow]] (the speech starts halfway through the video)
* In The Dark [=IDs=] LetsPlay of [[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/RE2%263/ Resident Evil 2 and 3,]] when it looks like Jill is finally about to escape the hell on Earth that is Racoon City, [[TooDumbToLive she has the gall to think to herself 'It's finally over'.]] At that point, [[ImplacableMan the Nemesis]] has had more than enough, and with a BadassCreed, it prepares to destroy Jill once and for all.
-->'''Nemesis:''' "You know what? I was going to let you go. [[TooDumbToLive But you had to go and pull silly shit like that.]] I'm done fucking around here. [[LongList I've got half my face stapled on. I lost my lips in a game of poker. I've got Corn Pops for teeth and a Jawbreaker for an eye. I'm wearing leather and it's 75 degrees out. I've been shot, blown up twice, electrocuted, and my wallet stolen twice just today.]] I'm the Nemesis, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch,]] and I'm not going to take this anymore!"
** From his [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil Resident Evil 1]] LetsPlay, Chris' BondOneLiner against Billy Coen:
-->'''Chris:''' Hey! Fuck you... Billy... ''FUCKING''... '''COEN!'''
-->'''Billy:''' [[FamousLastWords Dang...]]
* [[WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} Diabeetus']] LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' is worth mentioning here. He plays through a [[NintendoHard notoriously difficult game]] ''without getting hit once'', and uses only one savestate.
** There's also the part where he plays through [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsgVUgqPbFg Volkmire's Inferno]], one of the most ''[[ThatOneLevel aggravating levels of the game]]'', set to [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Danger Zone]] from ''Film/TopGun''.
* {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}}, in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MT4fqJG-DMc Part 18]] of his ''Pokemon Crystal'' LP-- he mentions that he'd like to catch a Koffing for his team before leaving Burned Tower. Literally a moment after saying that, he encounters and captures one. What's so special, let alone awesome, about this catch? [[spoiler:''It's a shiny.'']]
* [=RedChocobo=] proving that Bullet Seed (in ''Emerald'') and Fury Cutter (in ''Platinum'') can be VERY helpful in the right situation.
** The shiny Chinchou catch in ''Emerald'' [[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Pokemon%20Emerald/chapter55.html part 55]].
* After having a ton of trouble in his practice runs, [=UniversalGiant=] completes The Perfect Run in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkZjeNY7-Nc on his first recorded attempt.]]
* In a Let's Play of ''FireEmblem 7'', when it came time to challenge Sonia to finish the battle and claim the throne, the author sent Canas, [[spoiler: who is canonically Nino's uncle according to her support with the druid,]] to take her out as a form of poetic justice. First turn in, [[http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showthread.php?p=250369#post250369 he criticals with Luna, wiping her out in a single blast of dark magic before she can even attack.]] Needless to say, I cheered like he never cheered before at the outcome.
* A similar LetsPlay boss kill is in Rondie Plays ''Fire Emblem 8'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlPbZcTY4b4 episode 021-2a]]. Joshua, [[spoiler:whose mother was murdered by Callach in the last chapter]], delivers revenge in the form of the OneHitKill Silencer. And just to rub it in, Rondie adds extra dialogue: "You bastard...you stole my Hoplon Guard, Assassin, with Shamshir, and A Support adding critical?! CURSE YOOOUUUU~"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/BikdipOnABus BikdipOnABus]] at the end of his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lL26iIRSJes Pokemon FireRed Omega Let's Play]]
* After trying to clear a room in Hero's Cave from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle of Ages]]'' for about 10 minutes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=3elhu6sDcU4#t=1610s these]] LP'ers discover one of the more entertaining ways to clear a Zelda level.
** The best part? ''They were joking when they tried that.''
* [=TheSyndicateProject=], a Youtube user who essentially does a Let's Play of {{Minecraft}}, had an awesome moment in one of his episodes, which he titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfS7RHnugTo 'Luckiest Minecraft Player Ever']]. Why? He went into the Nether to collect some Glowstone, with some armour enchanted with protection, pickaxes, and a few other items. During said collection of glowstone, he falls off a ledge ''into lava'' and is momentarily blinded (you can't see under lava). Upon surfacing and panicking, he slowly swims to the nearest shore, hoping his enchanted armour would keep him alive. It does, and he reaches the shore, only to have a Ghast attack him, making him run back towards his portal. He ends up being attacked by ''two'' more Ghasts, which led to him attacking one and running from the other, before diving back to safety through the portal. Upon arriving back, he is understandably freaked out, and when he checks his armour, he finds that three of the four pieces are almost broken. ''Luckiest Minecraft Player indeed''.
* [=KoopaTheKollector=] green, taking down the Boost Guardian FIRST TIME! While explaining what to do to Red, who had never played any of the Metroid games before.
* [[http://lparchive.org/Grand-Theft-Auto-San-Andreas-(Screenshot)/ Jerusalem's LP]] of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' not only [[AdaptationExpansion goes into incredible detail and provides fake but pretty accurate back story and characterization]], he spent a number of hours editing a new mission that is one ''big'' CMOA for Sweet.
* An in-thread example; in Elentor's Let's Play of FinalFantasyVII, after the [[ItWasHisSled death of Aeris]], one of the goons commented, in genuine shock, that the game actually killed off a main character. Elentor's response says it all:
-->'''Elentor:''' I... I did it. I... I created a [=FF7=] thread with over 8000 replies with at least one soul not being spoiled that Aeris dies.
** Doubles as a [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments CMOH]].
* Another LP of ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem]]'' has the author [[CurbStompBattle completely humiliate the last level]] of [[NintendoHard Hector Hard Mode.]]
-->'''Artix74:''' Guy just straight up gives no fucks now. Endgame druids? No problem, [[SingleStrokeBattle he can just one-shot them.]] Similarly, fucks given by Nino? I'm pretty sure we're in the negatives by now.
* In ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink, the candle is a pretty important item: without it, you can't see anything in caves but yourself and the terrain. This would be problematic as the game features two fairly long gauntlets of cave scenes (Death Mountain and the Valley of Death.) So, of course, someone decided [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7PpwWUn-Cg&feature=BFa&list=PL4pmkMK7D4TMwIArhTesrZeNzTXKXuAwo to skip it.]]
* The Let's Play of ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' by orenronen on the SA Forums definitely warrants mention here, for single-handedly putting Dangan Ronpa on the map for western audiences. Now he's working alongside a different team on an English patch for the game, and a Let's Play of Super Dangan Ronpa 2 is also in the works!
* The Chilean Let's Player Xoda, who beat the third chapter of ''Slender: The Arrival'' in the most difficult mode, and get caught by the Hoody thing in the elevator, as you can see in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGs5MbwRqx4&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PL2925AAAD92BDA889 in this video retrospective]], in the 4:39 minute. Of course, HE SURVIVED!
* Another Chilean Let's Player, Vardoc, who beat without get killed the game ''Amnesia: The Dark Descent'' in his very fist attempt.
* Tulio Ramírez, a Venezuelan Let's Player, had very troubles playing ''Cave Story'' with a damaged keyboard. He got some problems beating Misery and the Doctor in the last level, but he managed to beat the Undead Core [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29tkpQ5sdX4 in his first recorded attempt]]
* To finish the postgame of ''MegaManStarForce 2'', [=BlitzBlast=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLkkYwnNO78&feature=youtu.be faces]] the ultimate form of Rogue, a character who he dislikes very much. Amusingly, [[CurbStompBattle Rogue SX is crushed by a single stunlocking combo.]] Contrast with the battle against the ultimate form of the final boss in hard mode, which in spite of the great play was much more danguerous.
* newfiebangaa's Let's Play of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI''. He's going around an area, filling up the map, when, out of nowhere, he runs into a new enemy named David. When he starts to fight it, he learns this new "enemy" is actually a BonusBoss. He beats David, but that's not the really awesome part. What's awesome is that David only had a ''1 in 256 chance of spawning in the particular space he was in''. While most people use savestates to fight David (or the other two Fiends, Daisoujou and Pale Rider), he managed to randomly walk into one of the only three or four Fiend-spawning squares in the game and manage to fight David and ''win''.
* [[{{Characters/ProtonJon}} DanTheEnigma]] takes on {{VideoGame/QWOP}} [[http://www.twitch.tv/dantheenigma/c/4039713 and actually beats it]]! What makes this awesome is that the run he beats QWOP in, he crushes it up to the 95m mark and then channels his inner [[FreelanceAstronauts Maxwell Adams]] and flails the rest of the course, completing the game.
