* [[TheAtoner Siegfried]] vs. [[BigBad Nightmare]] during the climax of ''Soulcalibur III''. The winner then gets an awesome PreAsskickingOneLiner when he turns to fight you:
-->'''Siegfried''': "If you're after the [[EvilWeapon sword]], don't expect to get past here alive. Sorry to keep you... you're up next!"\\
'''Nightmare''': [[EvilLaugh Ahahahaha!]] The time is ripe... You shall become part of me. You are my first sacrifice!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBVdXToUvII Ezio Auditore's announcement trailer.]] The trailer initially plays it up as a [[InvincibleVillain Nightmare-kicking-everybody-else's-asses trailer]], only for the trailer to "glitch" up... Ezio shows up a couple of minutes later, and asskicking ensues. (All to a remix of [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic "Venice Rooftops,"]] no less.)
** And at the end, having taken Nightmare's spotlight completely, he faces down the abomination calmly... And then uses the hidden blade on ''Nightmare''.
* During the ending of Chronicles of the Sword, your protagonist is hailed as a hero--and has a statue built in his/her honor.
* The series' signature intro quotes create rare moments where character taunts match up perfectly, such as...
-->'''Algol:''' "[[BloodKnight Fighting is my all... it is my existence]]!"\\
'''Nightmare:''' "[[EvilerThanThou Your existence is meaningless]]!"\\
'''Talim:''' "[[MartialPacifist I don't want to fight]]!"\\
'''Raphael:''' "[[ExactWords Very well]], [[LetsDance let us dance]]."\\
'''Raphael:''' "[[WeCanRuleTogether Would you like a taste]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent of my power]]?"\\
'''Mitsurugi:''' "[[ShutUpHannibal Let me give you a taste...]] [[BadassNormal of my steel]]."\\
'''Created Character[[note]]Super Human voice set (in ''SCV'')[[/note]]:''' "[[WhatTheHellHero Why do you choose to fight?]]"\\
'''Siegfried:''' "[[TheAtoner You could never understand]]."\\
'''Female Voice 4[[note]]in ''SCIV''[[/note]]:''' "Effort and talent, [[HardWorkHardlyWorks they are meaningless.]]"\\
'''Female Voice 2[[note]]in ''SCIV''[[/note]]:''' "[[SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers What would you call true strength?]]"
* Cassandra's ''SCIV'' ending. [[spoiler:Not only does she manage to defeat Algol and destroy Soul Edge, she also manages to break up Soul Calibur ''with her own hands''. Too bad it's non-canon. But the best part has to be this:]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Soul Calibur''': You dare extinguish the light of humanity just to suit yourself?]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Cassandra''': [[ShutUpHannibal After what you've done to Sophitia... You call yourself the light of humanity? GET SERIOUS!!!]] ''(snaps Soul Calibur in two)'']]
* 'Also from ''SCIV'', Sophitia's ending... is one for Algol.
** And one in Ivy's ending, for [[spoiler: her sword]].
* Some of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnBVUkhIel0 Destined Battle cutscenes]] in ''SCII'' are this. Some of the most notable ones are Maxi getting the drop on Astaroth and managing to ''bring him to his knees'' with his attacks, and Heihachi rebuffing Raphael with a BarehandedBladeBlock.
* Understated example: in his ending in ''SCIII'', Rock Adams returns to his home in the Americas by ''[[CharlesAtlasSuperpower swimming across the Atlantic Ocean!]]''
