* For starters, any time you hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soGzGCxW27c "Salva Nos"]], expect the awesome to commence.
* Though it's debated exactly when she reached her true pinnacle of Awesome, Kirika's fight in the third episode of ''Anime/{{Noir}}'' -- in which she manages to not only give an OffhandBackhand shot to an enemy behind her, but uses ''popcorn'' to find them -- was probably the moment we realized that she really was ''that good''. Mireille's expression at this was priceless, btw.
** An appropriate tag to this scene via one website was "Kirika isn't a Ninja...she's a Witch." Other "holy frijoles" scenes includes her killing someone with objects such as sunglasses, student [=ID=]s, and toy trucks. Later she shoots two mooks through a single gunshot hole yards away. Then there was the part where she faces about fifty [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs Triad]] gunmen in broad daylight, with no cover. Granted, she had Chloe's help, but dang....
*** The time she takes out a squad of soldiers by herself in a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown [[spoiler:In the Soldats village]] is another impressive fight, though it's incredibly brutal, involves her taking a hostage and using him as a HumanShield, and ends with her dispatching said shield with a shot to the head without even looking at him. Cripes.
* Though it's more of a wince moment than a CMOA, Kirika's last fight with [[spoiler:Chloe]] can be summed up in two words: Olive Fork.
* Not to mention the entire final episode, when both girls show of their best stuff against the Soldat nuns, including one with a sword.
* Also, although it was not animated quite as clearly as it might have been, Kirika does snap a grunt's neck ''with his own tie'' in the very first episode, by grabbing it then jumping down to a lower level or something. Spatially it was a bit hard to follow, but it ''was'' hardcore.
* Although not a CMOA by some people's standard, this troper watched in awe as, when Chloe walked into their flat, Mireille held a gun on her and we all got tensed for an action scene -- Kirika asked: "Would you like some tea?" I also think that this was the most priceless moment in terms of Mireille's expression at the time
** This politeness did not, however, stop her carrying a 3-inch long fork up her sleeve -- with which to KILL Chloe if the latter ever let her guard down.
*** Which, in a CMOA for Chloe, she ''never did.'' [[spoiler:Then, at least]].
* In this troper's opinion, Kirika's CMOA comes when she's being chased by a thug up the spiral staircase of a bell tower in Sicily. [[spoiler:She kills him by tying a bell rope to her ankle, and diving down the center of the staircase, shooting him as she passes him in headlong flight]]. It doesn't hurt that the music playing then is 'Salva Nos', IMHO the most outstanding piece of music in the series.
** This troper finds even more awesome to remember that [[spoiler:the same thug has broken both Kirika's hands, and she still manages to shoot, by tying the gun on her hand.]]
* In one scene where the girls are once again running from goons, Kirika gets shot in the arm and can't get her fingers to close around her gun handle (muscle and/or nerve damage preventing the motion from completing). A few seconds later, one of the goons goes down, and we see Kirika step into the scene, having ''tied her hand in place around the gun''.
* Chloe taking out [[spoiler: Shaoli]] in a matter of seconds. Made more awesome by the buildup throughout the episode and the one before it establishing [[spoiler: Shaoli]] as a badass.
* In episode 17, we have Mirielle hunting down and killing a sniper.
