* After defeating Atman to save Alice, Yuri returns to the graveyard to confront the Four Masks and demands an apology. They get pissed and then he psyches them out with some cracking knuckles and a roll of his head. With which they promptly apologize.
* Yuri gets one right at his introduction in ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts 1''. As he followed Bacon, he had his arm sliced off by the minion the man had used to slaughter an entire train of Japanese Soldiers. Without a blink, he immediately catches the imp, crushed it in his hand before reattaching his fallen arm back on.
** When he and Alice stopped in MonsterTown - it wasn't because of Plot-induced stupidity you would see in other games, they knew it was a trap, but decided to head in, intending to kick some ass before going to bed.
** Yuri is ''made'' of [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments of Awesome]]. One favorite is this exchange from ''Covenant'' between him and a BigBad [[EldritchAbomination god of destruction]] on the verge of destroying the world:
--->[[spoiler:'''Nicholai-Astaroth''']]: ''"My soul has been revived. The age of Mankind is coming to an end. Joy... sadness... desire... all of it is finished now. I will usher in a glorious new future."''
--->'''Yuri:''' ''"Before you do, can I ask a favour?"''
--->[[spoiler:'''Nicholai-Astaroth''']]: ''"What do you wish, human?"''
--->'''Yuri:''' ''"I wish you'd shove it. You know where."''
** This (spoilerish) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdlh4k2rMs4 scene]] from ''SHII'': Yuri manage to have a HeroicBSOD a KickTheDog [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown moment]] and a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome CMOA]] in the SAME scene. And, come on, a Japanese game where we see a [[spoiler: Japanese protagonist beating the hell out of a Japanese nationalist politician?]] You can hardly make something better than that.
* Rasputin doing the arms-spread fall off the edge of the Russian Palace and landing on his armoured zeppelin/airship, and smugly flying away. Only for Yuri, watching from below, to just smirk and [[spoiler: transform into the(previously inaccessible) form of Amon, Demon of Destruction.]]
