* Although [[CanonDiscontinuity no longer part of canon]], [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke Nanbu]], when confronted with [[spoiler:a BrainwashedAndCrazy [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen Browning]], courtesy of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ingram Prisken]], taunting Kyosuke and about to attack him]], replies "I see", and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QiJBTaX7mM calmly gives orders to immobilize the mech]]. He even [[WittyBanter exchanges a few jokes]] with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sanger Zonvolt]]. [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Katina Tarask]] is astonished that Kyosuke can maintain his composure, but [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ryusei Date]] tells her "[[TranquilFury Calm? I've never]] [[GenreSavvy seen him this angry before]]." Kyosuke [[HeroicResolve silently powers himself up]] [[ImplacableMan with every possible buff in the game]], prompting [[spoiler:Ingram]] to note that [[ThisIsGonnaSuck he may have gone too far]] in [[BullyingADragon provoking him]]. The CurbStompBattle that ensues is nothing less than legendary.
-->'''Irm''': He may have wanted to, but Ingram pissed off the one guy he shouldn't have.

* Ryusei goes BigDamnHeroes, taking the bullet and block Tempest's attack directing towards the Hagane with the R1 he just jumped in !
-->'''Tempest''': I waited 16 years to get revenge on the Federation ! Take That ! *Shoots the Hagage*
-->'''Ryusei''': R1, Protects the Hagane ! *gets in the way of the attack* I won't let you destroy the Hagane !
-->'''Captain Daitetsu''': What was that just now ?


* [[spoiler:Ingram]], despite his later activities, gets a moment of awesome for being one of the few characters in the entire [=SRW=] franchise who not only drank the dreaded GargleBlaster made by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kushua Mizhua]], but was not rendered unconscious by it ([[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Arado Balanga]] and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Ratsel Feinschmecker]] aside). Bonus points for keeping his composure until she left the room, and even then, ''he was still standing''!

* Kyosuke's route in the first game begins with him performing a test for the TransformingMecha Wildrauptier, except the machine was sabotaged and explodes during mid-flight, crashing landing into the ocean. [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Hans Weber]], TheFederation officer supervising the test [[spoiler:[[VehicularSabotage and the one responsible for the sabotage]]]], writes this off as an accident. Kyosuke [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat rises from the submerged wreckage]] ''[[MadeOfIron with a few broken ribs]]'' [[BornLucky and astonishes everyone at the base that he even survived]]. He even lampshades his own predicament:
--> "I managed to survive...[[{{Foreshadowing}} again]]."

* In the prologue scenario for Ryusei's route in the first game, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Elzam von Branstein]] is on a routine patrol when [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Aerogater Megillot drones]] surround the party. The only unit capable of fighting against the drones is a lone mass-produced Gespenst MK II with no on-board weaponry at all. Proving he's an AcePilot, Elzam destroys all but one of the drones by ''body-slamming'' into them.

* Sanger unleashing his Grungust Type-0's ''[[{{BFS}} Zankantou]]'' ("Colossal Blade") and saying his {{CatchPhrase}} in his first appearance...and he actually has ''much'' more. Most famously, ''every bit'' of his events in the Earth Cradle in ''Original Generation 2''.
** To elaborate, he faces off against his AlternateUniverse EvilCounterpart [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Wodan Ymir]]. The force of their duel inadvertently smashes their way through the Earth Cralde withstand a ''nuclear explosion''. After several other events that might qualify as Crowning Moments in their own right (but aren't related to Sanger, natch), Sanger realizes he's sworn to protect is powering the supercomputer Magus Gebo. He then forces his badly battered Dygenguard into action by sheer force of will and destroys [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Machinery Child Uruz Egret]] with a single hit, declaring he is "Sanger...Sanger Zonvolt, the Sword of Sophia" and there is indeed ''nothing'' that his Colossal Blade cannot cut.
*** Not to be outdone, in ''[[VideoGameRemake Original Generations]]'', Wodan, whose Thrudgelmir is in even worse shape than the Dygenguard, puts everything he has left into his final attack - a combination of his version of the Colossal Blade by emitting pure energy via a PillarOfLight which utterly annihilates [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Egret Fehu]], as well as the rest of the Bergelmirs he brought along for backup. Watch the awesome translated[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUL5S9BxEeQ here]].
** In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura General Magnaz]] [[{{Gonk}} Ald]] uses a cheap trick to disable the Dygenguard's Colossal Blade. Sanger's response? Activate his machine's default weaponry, and prove that just because he loses his primary weapon, does ''not'' mean he cannot fight.
** ''Original Generation: The Animation'' might have fallen into the DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible category, if it weren't for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9GQNKD0-9Y Sanger suddenly appearing and uses one single strike to cleave dozens and dozens of Bartolls at once]]. Although it wasn't pushing it to the SoCoolItsAwesome territority, it certainly pushes it to mediocrity instead of DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible. Whenever Sanger walks, awesomeness is nearby.

* Elzam, who has defected to the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Divine Crusaders]], engages in a sortie against the newbish [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha SRX Team]]. Just so he can have a less-than-amicable chat with his estranged younger brother [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Raidiese Fuijwara-Branstein]], Elzam flies straight towards him, bypassing several [[AMechByAnyOtherName Personal Troopers and Armored Modules]] practically nonchalantly, all while Elzam's {{Leitmotif}} "Trombe!" blares.

* In ''Original Generation 2'', Arado finally joins the party during the Moon Cradle event where [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic The Inspectors]] begin their lunar occupation. Four Armored Modules commandeered by Inspector [[ArtificialHuman bioroids]] are moments away from attacking the Mao Industries mecha manufacturing factory, and Arado sorties out in a machine categorically unsuited to his skills. What does he do? Reprogram a ''sniper-based'' mech for melee combat on the fly, charge right in and use the thing to take on all four. Unfortunately, the moment is rendered temporary, as the {{Jerkass}} [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspector Vigagi]] shoots him down right after.

* Sanger rejoins the party after [[FaceHeelTurn defecting to the Divine Crusaders]], [[WellIntentionedExtremist but with good intentions]]. [[HeroicBSOD He begins moping about not deserving a second change to fight with his former ATX Team]], which he previously led. Kyosuke, the new ATX Team leader, [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan punches his former commander and delivers a line that brings him back into shape]]:
--> "We don't need any moping fools. We need Sanger Zonvolt, the "Sword That Smites Evil!"

* In a DyingMomentOfAwesome, [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Captain Daitetsu Minase]] does not relinquish command of the ''Hagane'' battleship to treat his mortal wounds, instead ordering his crew to use the ships "[[{{BFG}} Tronium Buster Cannon]]" with compensators disabled to enable a full retreat]].
** His death in-universe is more resounding, with the fact the crew put aside everything else to give him an immediate funeral shows how much AFatherToHisMen he really was. Additionally, Ratsel sheds his persona and pays his last respect as Elzam, stating it's a disgrace to come in disguise. Furthermore, in ''The Inspector'' AnimatedAdaptation, Kyosuke limps out to pay his respects, even after being trounced by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Axel Almer]] and putting him into the ICU, despite his comrades insisting he should recuperate.

* [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Tetsuya Onodera]], having ascended to replace his mentor, becomes Depute Captain of the ''Kurogane'' battleship. In the Federation's offensive against The Inspectors at the White Star, Tetsuya squares off against [[spoiler:the traitor [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Lee Linjun]], who earlier defected to join the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror]]. Lee attempts [[RammingAlwaysWorks to ram]] the ''Kurogane'' with his ''Shirogane'' battleship. Tetsuya decides to take it...because the ''Kurogane'' is mounted with a "[[ThisIsADrill Titanic Drill]]" on its bow; the ''Shirogane'' does not. The ''Kurogane'' cuts through the ''Shirogane'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOBzZ8bha5w like butter]]]].
** To quote Tetsuya:
--> "[[spoiler:Lee, [[ThisIsADrill have you forgotten what's on the front of this ship]]]]!?"

* Nearly every scenario in ''Original Generation 2'' after The Inspectors arrive post-Scenario 15 has an awesome moment:
** [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ryoto Hikawa]] launches out with the yet-to-be-tested Huckebein MK III L and performs a combination with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Rio Mei Long]] in the AM Gunner against [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspector Mekibos]], showcasing how far humanity has gone with the alien technology given to them, even mastering its effects.
** Ratsel arriving from nowhere and running circles around Vigagi in Scenario 17, complete with [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall breaking]].
** [[Characters/MasouKishin Masaki Andoh]] appears with the Cybuster, proving the Elemental Lord of Wind is faster than the arrogant [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspector Aguija]] in her Silverwind. This is followed up with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ibis Douglas]] launching in the prototype Astelion, which also outflies the Silverwind. Needless to say, Aguija is not amused.
** The Fairlions' debut in the Aviano route split
** The reawakening of the ancient, powerful Choukijin, leading to the reformation of the [[=RyuKoOh=]/[=KoRyuOh=]] in modern times
** The SRX and its first display of the "[[CombinationAttack Hyper Tronium Buster cannon]]" to destroy a seemingly invincble [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst Regisseur]]
** [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]] performing a HeroicSacrifice in hopes to destroy [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Vindel Mauser and Lemon Browning]] from plunging another world into endless conflict, showing off her unbendable will for the first time, and saved her allies she just betrayed minutes ago.
** [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Mai Kobayashi]] finally laying [[spoiler:the aspect of Levi Tolar]] to rest, alongside a display of her own piloting abilities (if brief; bonus points if the player manages to unlock the Wild Wurger L)
** A rebuilt Lamia willingly leaves the Shadow-Mirror of her own volition, aligning with Sanger, Ratsel and [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Gilliam Yeager]], having tailed the Shadow-Mirror to confront them.

* Axel's early moments in ''Original Generation 2'' didn't have as much moments of awesome, but ''Original Generation 2'' elevates it into one. The Shadow-Mirror AlternateUniverse has an EvilTwin of Kyosuke codenamed "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Beowulf]]", who uses a walking death machine and constantly beat Axel in engagements. As Beowulf and his squadron closes in on the Tesla Leicht Institute, Axel decides to use the recently built SuperRobot Soulgain, with little to no time to completely master it, madly rushing head on against his foe. Axel lost before because he never expected Beowulf's Gespenst MK III to regenerate a destroyed limb, thus couldn't even scratch it. He finally did it with the Soulgain that has yet to showcase Axel's further fighting techniques (God knows if he'd prevail if they'd fight with Axel having mastered the Soulgain, which has become very obvious by the time he returns to active duty after jumping into the new universe).
** The ''EndlessFrontier'' drama CD provides further details of their fight: Axel outmaneuvers Beowulf, traps the MK III in a huge cage set to explode soon (at cost of the Soulgain being heavily damaged). Axel declares he ''wins'' the war, though not the battle. In a sense, Axel fulfills his objective of stalling Beowulf so his Shadow-Mirror allies can transfer safely. He makes his jump with the final words: "Farewell, Beowulf. I'll not see you again in the other world". Cue the facility exploding and Beowulf screaming in rage. Sure, since he's [[spoiler:an Einst or Einst-like]], he's more likely to have survived it, but make no mistake: Axel completely owned him HARD.

* Lamia repeats her unbending will in ''The Animation'', and she did it without using a mecha or self-destruct device, but just refusing the ODE's will, all while [[BoundAndGagged tied up]] [[FanService butt naked]]. Honestly, if she didn't pull that, the Hagane would've been creamed by the Bartolls that adapt to every of their moves and counters them well. Unfortunately, OG Gaiden tones this down that [[spoiler:her refusing has little effects to the Bartoll, and right after she pulls it, she gets shot down near dead]].
** Which in turn, gives [[spoiler:Axel]] another CrowningMomentOfAwesome. [[spoiler:When everyone was just about to give up the prospect of saving Lamia, he just says "Just believe in me" and excecutes a {{plan}} that risks on either destroying or wiping out Lamia's memories. And he does this successfully, all while plugging her out with his strongest attack (it could've destroyed normal men in direct hit, this could be a small CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Lamia, because she also survived it after her body's battered while the heroes try to weaken her, and her mind's in a complete wreck of resisting the extremely strong reprogramming of Duminuss), and destroys the big SuperRobot containing her (compared to Kyosuke who destroyed a RealRobot considerably smaller), and in the same time, proves he genuinely got a HeelFaceTurn treatment, gaining the trust of the heroes]].
** Then, that scene was re-enacted, sorta, in EndlessFrontier EXCEED. [[spoiler:Pete Pain AKA W03 used Code PTP to brainwash both Cardia Basilissa and Aschen Broedel (the prototypes for Echidna and Lamia). He succeeded in making Cardia blow herself up in front of Haken & co and Aschen was next to blow herself up. Axel was nearby. He was amnesiac. Stand there and do nothing? HELL NO. He recalled and repeated the same method to Aschen while not being sure if it's going to work (since his amnesia gets in his way). The result? IT WORKS. Not even amnesia can bar Axel for being awesome.]]

* No other character perhaps embodies AuthorityEqualsAsskicking as much as [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Ring Mao]], simply because she's a the ''CEO''. of Mao Industires. While the player has access to her for one scenario in the first game, she becomes a regular in the sequel. In both cases, she deploys in the Huckebein 008L, a unit ''so'' dangerous because of the "Vanishing Trooper Incident" that clearance for its usage has to be acquired beforehand.

* In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', after the scientist Donna defects from the Federation to help her injured son, she places him in the monster-like Wendigo SuperRobot to prove to the Federation higher-ups her project has its benefits. Unfortunately, the showcasing involves the Wendigo leveling the base. [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Kai Kitamura]], who is at the facility, reminds her its the pilot, not the machine, that's most important. He proceeds to defeat the Wendigo and tell the grieving Donna he saved her son because he doesn't want any unnecessary deaths. To prove the kind of man that he is, Kai makes it so Donna is given some leniancy for her help in finding information on the group she's working for.
** How dare you miss out on how Kai whips that Wendigo! He uses a friggin' mass-produced Gespenst MK II and pulls off some of the most insane physical feats the machine can ever do...by '''overriding preset controls to manual'''!

* ''Original Generation Gaiden'' has another: the birth of the Apotheosized Ialdabaoth. A BrainwashedAndCrazy [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Fernando Albark]] starts pounding on brother [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Folka Albark]], also revealing he too HAS evolved his Valefor, but born out of jealousy and rage. Folka gathers up his positive thought, which resonates with the Ialdabaoth...and then...[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t38j6SqqICc AWESOME MUSIC]] blares, it evolves, kicks the Valefor's ass big time, proving jealousy-based power is rendered insignificant.
** The scene where he pulled his first HeelFaceTurn is by its own rights also awesome. After ThePowerOfLove [[LoveRedeems redeems]] him, Folka proceeded to own the Shura squadron SINGLE-HANDEDLY... only with Ialdabaoth's weaker attacks, and manages to damage Fernando quite a bit with it, until eventually both agreed to go on full force... then... he starts whipping out [[FistOfTheNorthStar Hokuto Shinken]]-esque moves for the remainder of the game.

* Anytime someone gets a new unit in the midst of combat, you can expect a moment of awesome.
** The debut of the Dygengaurdgets points for seeming like it will cruelly subvert this, then going ahead with it a few turns later, and with such awesomeness that it makes an enemy break the fourth wall.
---> '''Vigagi''': "What the hell was that? And what does 'Episode 30' ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UB2QFbOE3KI&feature=related&fmt=18 37]] for you [[UpdatedRerelease OGs]] players) mean?"
*** No love for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Filio Presty]]? He ''enabled'' Sanger's moment of awesome by reprogramming an ENTIRE OPERATING SYSTEM in the Dygenguard within the span of minutes!
**** Before the Tesla Leicht Institue staff can get to the underground hangar where the Dygenguard is, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Master Rishu Tougou]] shows just WHY he's the master of Sanger and Bullet: [[spoiler:he DEFLECTS bullets with this Zol-Orichalcum CaneSword]]. Hell, even Ratsel utters "He didn't even need my help."
*** The ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Wars Alpha 2]]'' version of this scene was even more epic. In ''Original Generation'' Sanger is somewhat distraught by the Dygenguard's malfunction, and is fairly well out of it until Wodan throws the Type-3 Colossal Blade to him, at which point things just get a little silly. In ''Alpha 2'', however, nobody just tosses it to him to snap him out of it: he scoffs at his rival [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kukuru]] (whom Vigagi would take role for in ''Original Generation 2'') for believing he can't fight, and '''commands''' that his blade be given to him. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnpcvNdky80 This scene]] truly proved that he is "The Sword That Cleaves Evil".

* How did this scene not get here sooner. When [[spoiler: Ingram]] betrays the party and steals the [[WaveMotionGun R-Gun]], and a large Hermodr battleship is homing in on yours, while the SRX Team are crippled and the rest of your units are probably damaged from fighting another Hermodr and various assorted Aerogater EliteMooks, all seems lost. Then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7FARy_Lv4g Elzam shows up]] with the ''Kurogane'' and overrides the music "Trombe!", activates the giant drill that comprises the entire front of the ship, and proceeds to have a BigDamnHeroes moment by ramming it right through the second alien battleship, followed by the SRX Team giving the traitor a piece of their mind.

* From ''Divine Wars'', the AnimatedAdaptation of the first game, when [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Cobray Gordon]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHE5xbj8sf4 appears, he merges the Dis Astranagant with the SRX]] to destroy Septuagint]].

* [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Tasuku Shinguji]] has his moment(s), with the fact that he survived not one but ''two'' Colossal Blade attacks!
** In the first game, Sanger appears to deal a crushing blow to the ''Hiryu Custom'' battleship. Tasuku, who isn't even an official pilot, commandeers the Giganscudo in the battleship, goes BigDamnHeroes and not only blocks the Grungust Type-0's Colossal Blade but crack it.
--->'''Tasuku''': "Do you know what happens when the strongest spear and the strongest shield collides?"
--->'''Sänger''': "I see, there's a crack on my Colossal Blade."
*** [[FridgeBrilliance It makes perfect sense since Tasuku's not evil]].

* In the ''Second Original Generation'', possibly a prelude of how [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Touma Kanou]] becomes a well-known BadassNormal from the ''Alpha'' universe (see his entry above for details of that): [[spoiler:During the beginning of the stage, he was training with Axel and had to use super heavy wristbands like Lune did. Then come the real battle, after shutting up Kaoru Tomine for misusing the Jinrai for his petty attitude, he's asked to remove his wristbands... and that was enough to one shot a Mass-Produced Jinrai with Rising Meteor. When asked why he could do that, he just mentioned, "[[TrainingFromHell I just did some old-fashioned training.]]"]]
** Of the same game, Stage 45. [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Ing Egret]] is having a fight with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Egretta]] ([[spoiler:who is really Uruz]]) and is a pretty even match, until [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Amara and the "Code:Evil"]] shows up and blast Ing with her new weapon "[[spoiler:Axion Asher]]". Just about she's going to deal the killing blow, [[spoiler:Ing fully awakens as a Psychodriver, ''search for usable equpiments'' (which turns out to be parts of the planned AM Servant) '''AND''' ''rewrites his machine's programs to fit them on it, all done by his telekenesis power alone AND on-spot'']], then proceed to rip a new one on Egretta. The real awesome part, however, is what the conversations in between (which is also a TakeThat to someone out there):
--->'''Egretta:''' "That's an interesting sight, Ing. But [[spoiler:connecting scrap parts together will not beat me. Now die together with Huckebein's line!]]"
--->'''Ing:''' [[spoiler:"Huckebeins had already died twice, and their blood was inherited by [=EX=]bein Ashe. And Ashe will get over their deaths, return to life within the ashes...That's what it called as [=EX-Exbein=]!"]]
--->''Ing whacks him with [[spoiler:[=EX-Exbein=]'s T-Link Saber]]''
--->'''Ing:''' ''(after this immediate battle)'' [[spoiler:"This is the reborn Huckebein...[=EX-Exbein=] and its power! [[BadassBoast You cannot win!]]"]]

* In La Gias, Officer Rishel got Bullet, Kusuha and Shine hostages and away from their mech when a lone unit starts trashing his defence. It's Sänger Zonvolt. Congratulations to Rishel for having the balls to try and scare Sänger into submission by talking about the hostages. (Not to mention, Bullet, Kusuha and Shine are already badass enough to take care of themselves.) Sänger's answer:
--->'''Sänger''': If you don't value your life, you're welcome to try me. Thoses who will come forward will be cleaved by my Zankantou!
--->'''Rishel''': [[TooDumbToLive We have hostages here, I highly suggest your surrender and drop your weapons, because if you don't ...]]
--->'''Sänger''': [[ShutUpHannibal SHUT UP]] !
--->'''Rishel''': !?
--->'''Sänger''': AND LISTEN ! [[InTheNameOfTheMoon My name is Sänger ! Sänger Zonvolt ! The Sword That Cleaves Evil !]]
--->'''Rishel''': [[BigWhat Wh.. What ?!]] Are you even listening to me ? You're gonna regret that !
--->'''Sänger''': I'm the one who should be saying that ! [[OhCrap Moving Forward !]]

* Many of the attacks in the ''Second Original Generation'' have gotten ridiculous, though special mention has to go to Kyosuke and Excellen's "Rampage Ghost" CombinationAttack: at one point, the two are literally playing catch-and-return ''using the enemy unit''. Excellen doesn't even decide to shoot the enemy back to Kyosuke - she simply ''bats it away'' with her machine's SwissArmyGun.
** Which is topped by the Garmraid Blaze G Mode, where it slams the enemy to the ground, and blasts it with its ChestBlaster until the beam ''erupts from the other side of the planet''. Try not to do this move too many times, lest you not have a world to save.

* In the ''Second Original Generation'', [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Irui Gan Eden]] and every single one of her BigDamnHeroes moment]], especially when you consider [[spoiler:''she's not physically with the party'']].

* [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Michiru Hanaten]] calling out on the three {{Jerkass}} Boosted Children of the Argent-class that they're more like dogs wagging their tails (which is a case of FridgeBrilliance thanks to their names) and waiting to be served rather than real heroes.
** Hell, the debut of the [[spoiler:G-Bankaran]] already qualifies with a lot of ContinuityNod and MythologyGag packaged all in one. [[GameBreaker And then you use the machine.]]

* Chapter 44 might as well be called "[[Characters/MasouKishin Shu Shirakawa]] screws the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Gaia Sabers]] [[spoiler:and the [[Characters/SuperRobotwarsClassic Guests]]]]"". He gives the party some breathing room by providing a doctored video that [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Arteil Steinbeck]] and [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Teniquette Zezernan]]]] were meeting in secret, while he dishes a lot of humiliation to [[spoiler:Zezernan]] that yes, he was able to decipher the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyYlfYZVHUk technology within the Granzon]].

* The opening of the ''Second Original Generation'' alone by itself has ''a lot of these'':
** The defense of Asakusa City alone takes the cake but when Kai uses the stakes to ''punch an enemy'' to the water, is probably the most awesome moment.
** Cybuster making mince meat out of the Garden of Baral statues in outer space, Arado [[{{Determinator}} purging the Jacket Armor]] after getting knocked towards the side of the ''Hagane'', Dygenguard riding the Aussenseiter and Sanger killing a lot of enemies while Raioh does a dive kick and the three Dynamic General Guardians ''making a cross''. Those lights you see? They're ''the enemies''.

* YMMV on whether he's redeemed or not, however [[spoiler:Lee's HeroicSacrifice by transporting the ''Air Christmas'' battleship inside Euzeth Gozzo and exploding it from within has certainly won him some of fans. He also inadvertently gave Irui the chance to use her powers to free Ing and the EX-Exbein from inside the Adamantron]].

* After defeating her for the final time, Kukuru tries to escape but is blocked by the [=TouTetsuOh=] and the [=KyuKiOh=]. Son Ganlong then casually mentions that the [=TouTetsuOh=] devoured the souls of her parents, meaning they'll no longer be reincarnated. Kukuru is devastated at the entire revelation [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone of what she did]]. Now here's the awesome part: [[spoiler: Son Ganlong then tells her to get devoured by the [=TouTetsuOh=], but Sanger has had enough and whacks the [=TouTetsuOh=], saving Kukuru in the process. While Kukuru won't thank Sanger for what he did, she vows that she's gonna kill the entire Baral Garden and take her along with them as she calls herself the "Maiden of Death". And for the rest of the game, Kukuru ''finally becomes a playable character'' which she never got the chance in ''Alpha 2''. Too bad she doesn't get SparedByTheAdaptation though as her life is tied with Baral.]]

* In chapter 40, Kusuha and Bullet finally get the [=RyuKoOh=]/[=KoRyuOh=] back which is then followed by Rishu, Axel back in his Soulgain with the upgraded golden arm, and the Kurogane's BigDamnHeroes to the ATX Team in chapter 40.

* The debut of [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha the Hyperion]]. After a long time, Ibis ''finally'' gets a CG debut.

* From ''Dark Prison'', players get to use the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cqp3W-b12k Neo Granzon]] again a la ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsEX''.
** Shu ''trolling'' [[Characters/MasouKishin Shiva]] [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu Volkruss]] in Scenario 20. Upon weakening [[Characters/MasouKishin Saphine Grace]] in the transformed Wizol Custom by Volkruss (unlike ''EX'' where she could get KilledOffForReal), Volkruss decides to possess Shu and forces him to use the Neo Granzon. Too bad for him, since Shu is no longer under his influence and the dark god just granted him free access to power. Cue "[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Dark Prison Ver. OG DP]]", where it can ''override boss themes''.

* Perfectio himself gets one when he introduces himself, with every one of the Steel Dragon Battle Group in utter shock at how overpowered he is. The cinch? He just says something along the line of "This is not my true form. You may as well refer this as my... branch.", in which Kouta/Roar chimes in with "Just the branch and he's THIS powerful!?". And from that point on Perfectio cements himself as one of the most overpowered boss in the SRW OG-verse, on par with Keisar Ephes, after spending his time as just a 'boss from [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny a glitchy SRW game]]'.

* Stage 24 of ''2nd OG'', "The Sword to Defend Earth" pulls out the [[BigDamnHeroes biggest damn heroes of the OG series]]. At the beginning, the Aggressors plus Ratsel and the Kurogane are vastly outnumbered by [[spoiler: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsFFinal Zebris and the Guests]]]], when all of a sudden, a surprise attack at the rear enemies puzzles everyone present, and lo and behold, the Hagane and the Hiryu Kai are back from La Gias. What was once a hard fight turns into one brutal CurbStompBattle as they make their way towards [[spoiler: Zeb]]. This is also the first time players can pull off the famous [[CombinationAttack combination attacks]] from Rampage Ghost, Colossal Tornado Blade, Tronium Buster Cannon, and Twin Bird Strike, with either Kyosuke or Viletta leading the charge with [[AttackPatternAlpha Maximum Break]] ''[[{{HSQ}} all in one attack sequence]]''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Inspector ]]

* The '''ENTIRE''' first episode, particularly the first Axel vs. Beowulf showdown. Additionally, this segment more-or-less redeems the quality of the previous {{Animated Adaptation}}s; having Masami Obari as director certainly helps.
* Kyosuke stopping the Thrudgelmir's "[[{{BFS}} Colossal Blade]]" with the Alt Eisen's "[[PileBunker Revolver Stake]]" in Episode 5, proving the FlawedPrototype in his hands is less of that than it is an AceCustom.
* For the writing staff, because it takes ''balls'' to pull off something like that, in Episode 7, Kyosuke is in need of another Personal Trooper because the Alt Eisen is being repaired, so Major Kai sticks him in a [[RealRobot Gespenst MK II]] [[SuperPrototype Type-S]].
-->'''"[[NotSoStoic ULTIMATE]]! [[CallingYourAttacks GESPENST]]! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OcwkRpuHuA KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK]]!!!"'''
** Bonus points to this scene for explaining why 99% of pilots who execute the manuveur in the games give such a [[LargeHam ham-tastic battle cry]]: ''the command console tells you to do it'' (doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny).
--->'''Gespenst HUD''': '''SHOUT NOW'''
** Earlier in the episode, Rai and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Latooni Subbota]] are trying to evacuate [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Princess Shine Hausen]] when they run into [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Archibald Grims]] and his Bioroid EliteMooks. They're cornered, until Gilliam tosses smoke grenades to cover their exit, and leads them to a balcony, revealing he was snooping around because he [[GenreSavvy suspected this would happen]]. Archibald and his forces smugly corner them, but Gilliam calmly smirks, tells the three not to worry, and ''leaps off'' the balcony into the arms of his Gespenst Type-R, turning the tables on Archibald, who's shocked that Gilliam was CrazyPrepared enough to hide a Personal Trooper right under everyone's nose. Bonus points for Gilliam rocking the SharpDressedMan and BadassLongcoat looks, and his Type-R showing up is a MythologyGag to how he used to [[spoiler:show up and ruin the heroes days when he was the BigBad in ''Hero Senki: Project Olympus'']].
* In Episode 8, the Inspectors invade Mao Industries and its lunar facilities. Ryoto, using the [=EXbein=] Boxer, decides to...[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything *ahem*]] "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQCvVzKxeEs&feature=sub dock]]" with Rio in the AM Gunner with the Boxer MechaExpansionPack still equipped and use the [[WaveMotionGun Full Impact Cannon]][[note]]In the games, the Huckebein MK III cannot use the Boxer and Gunner frames simulataneously[[/note]]. Even Rio doesn't believe he's going to do that because of the risk involved!
* Two standouts in Episode 9:
** First, Ratsel's BigDamnHeroes moment, Complete with "Trombe!" override, keeping Vigagi at bay; the latter's NoFourthWall response is just icing on the cake:
---> '''Vigagi''': "Just who are you?"
---> '''Ratsel''': "[[ShoutOut My name is Ratsel...]] [[CharClone Ratsel]] [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Feinschmecker]]!"
---> '''Vigagi''': "Huh, 'The Mysterious Gourmet'? Is my translator broken?"
** As Masaki and the Cybuster holds Aguija and her Silverwind at bay, Ratsel with the [=GuarBein=]] MK III Trombe and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sleigh Presty]] in the Calion need to get rid of the Inspector {{Mecha Mook}}s. Ibis sorties out with the new Astelion and showcases the new "Alpha proto" by destroying all the {{mook}}s and give Aguija a run for her money when the Astelion outflies ''and'' outperforms the Silverwind.
* Episode 10: "[[CombinationAttack Royal Heart Breaker]]". '''FULL STOP'''. To give it more awesome, they combine it with the Angelg's "[[HotWings Phantom Phoenix]]".
** Really, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8vkKaL7oFs the entire scene]]. It mostly goes to Princess Shine, who's mostly a backseat driver before she's given the Fairlion G. The fact she returns home, comes back, a BadassBoast by telling SmugSnake Archibald she's taking back her country and willing to spill blood to do so - whether it be hers or her enemies - shows how far she's willing to go. Furthermore, throughout the entire segment "[[{{Leitmotif}} Fairy Dang-Sing]]" plays in the background - not the usual instrumental, mind you, but an ''actual vocal version'', one of the few {{Leitmotif}}s to be given a treatment since the ''Alpha'' games. ''THAT'' is how awesome the scene is.
*** In a meta-moment of awesome, current [=SRW=] series producer Takanobu Terada states he wrote down the lyrics for "Fairy Dang-Sing" at night single-handedly, with Fairlion plastic model figures at his bedside.
* Episode 13, as a ShoutOut to [[SecretCharacter unlockable mecha from the games]], Lamia doesn't get the repaired Angelg, but the '''Vysaga''' instead; needless to say, the audience is pleased to see this machine isn't forgotten. This is followed up by Gilliam with the new Gespenst Type-RV, Ratsel and a brief prelude to Sanger vs. Wodan.
* Episode 15 is practically a scene-by-scene near perfect recreation of the Dygenguard's debut scenario from ''Original Generation 2'':
** Wodan's BigDamnVillains appearance when Vigagi is about to get a bead on Sanger's Grungust Type-3 with his Galgau.
** Master Rishu shows why he's Sanger's master with his [[CaneSword cane-sheathed sword]] and easily dispatches every Bioroid in the room holding them hostage.
** After Filio finishes reprogamming the operating system in the Dygenguard, Sanger stops the Galgau's pincer attack by ''[[BarehandedBladeBlock grabbing it]]'', then kick the larger Galgau away. Note Filio's moment in game is also faithfully adapted here: to clarify, he and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Jonathan Kazahara]] initially opt to use the default TC-OS for the Dygenguard, but when it fails to move, Filio rushs the installation ''of the untested JINKI-1 operating system''...'''WITHIN A SPAN OF SECONDS'''.
** With the Type-3 Colossal Blade back in his possession, Sanger blocks the Galgau's "[[ChestBlaster Mega Smasher]]" with ease. Vigagi gets incensed after Sanger cuts off the Galgau's tail and charges recklessly at the Dygenugard. Sanger unleashes the ''[[InASingleBound Unyou no Tachi]]'' technique, combined with the usual HotBlooded "'''[[{{Kiai}} CHESTOOOO]]'''!!!" and damages its energy reactor like in the games? Hell, no: '''[[OneHitKill he cleaves the Galgau in two and completely destroys it]]'''.
** The episode title card itself, seeing as how that little bit is explicitly different from the normal title cards used for the show:
---> '''Sanger''': "Inherit my sword, Dygenguard... No! (cue title card, complete with flaming fonts) ''War God's Armament '''DYGENGUARD'''!''"
---> '''Vigagi''': "'War God's Armament'?" [[BreakingTheFourthWall And what does Episode 15 mean]]!?"
* The assault on the Earth Cradle in Episode 21:
** Two exclusive {{Combination Attack}}s in ''The Inspector'' between the R-Gun Powered mounting the AM Gunner and the SRX with the [=EXbein=] Boxer via "Double Blade Kick", the start of Sanger and Wodan's duel, the ''Kurogane'' drilling through the Cradle and the Branstein brothers' ''epic'' takedown of Archibald.
*** The latter cannot be emphasized enough: [[spoiler:Archibald has Rai and the R-2 Powered in the clutches of his titanic Gravilion, leaving Ratsel [[SadisticChoice in the same position he was in]] [[ShootTheDog when he was forced to kill his wife in order to save their space colony]]: kill a member of his family or let his arch-nemesis escape. Rai tells Ratsel to shoot regardless of the risk, but secretly uses the R-2 Powered's visor to detail what Ratsel should do. The older Branstein brother takes the hint and fires; just as the shot inches near the R-2 Powered, Rai hits the [[TransformingMecha Variable Formation switch]], pops the machine into the SRX's torso configuration (the hatch for receiving the R-1) wide open, and dodges the shot completely. The Gravilion takes it right to the face, but Archibald escapes in a Guarlion before the machine explodes. However, Rai chases after him in mid-flight, [[WhatADrag lassoes the Guarlion]] using the R-2's "[[RingsOfDeath Beam Chakram]]" and ''{{One Hit Kill}}s'' ''Archibald with a MegatonPunch straighthrough'']]. [[LaserGuidedKarma Karmic justice has been served]].
* In the second-half of the Earth Cradle offensive in Episode 22, Wodan takes his Thrudgelmir and uses its Colossal Blade's "[[PillarOfLight Sword of the Cosmos]]" to rip the facility in half ''by himself'' (in the games, it's the force of the Dygenguard and Thrudgelmir's respective {{BFS}}es that caves the Earth Cradle's ceiling).
* During the intense battle with the Einst in Episode 23, especially with a {{Brainwashed}} Excellen at the helm of the mutated Rein Weiss Ritter, things aren't going well for the heroes as they're being swarmed...until:
-->'''[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Azuki Sawa]]''': "Deputy Captain! Launch Hatch 5 has opened!"
-->'''Tetsuya''': "What? But there's nothing else we can launch..."
--> Cue "[[{{Leitmotif}} Steel]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_j1wkZqGnrE Beowulf]]" as the rebuilt Alt Eisen Riese ascends to the launch platform.
-->'''Azuki''': "Code confirmed. It's Assault-1!"
-->'''Kyosuke''': ''([[BandagedBabe ripping off the eye bandage he's been wearing since the Alt got trashed]])'' "[[HesBack Excellen, I'm taking you back...]]"
** The rest of the episode shows us why one should never press Kyosuke's BerserkButton as he tears his way through everything the Einst throw in his path to save Excellen. At one point, loads of [[AnimatedArmor Einst Gemuet]] literally ''dog pile'' the Riese in an attempt to capture him. Kyosuke unleashes the [[ShouldersOfDoom Claymore launchers]] to blow half of the mess away (as in, fired at point-blank range that ''rips them to shreds''), then makes quick work of the rest.
* The ATX Team takes on the Inspectors for Episode 24. In a perfectly executed attack on [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Sikalog]], he's utterly wiped out while "[[{{Leitmotif}} GO!!]]" plays in the background. Not to be outdone, the Cybuster makes short work of Aguija with a "[[RammingAlwaysWorks Akashic Buster]]" while Masaki's {{Leitmotif}} "[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Neppu! Shippu! Cybuster!]]" plays.
** From out of nowhere, Shu uses his Granzon and destroys Vigagi's new Mega Galgau ''with a single [[SphereOfDestruction Black Hole Cluster]]''; prior to that, he uses the same weapon to destroy the Inspectors' ''Diaus'' battleship. In-universe, including the audience, have no clue who did it until "[[{{Leitmotif}} Dark]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Prison]]" is heard.
*** A very subtle, blink-and-you-miss it, cherry on top for this moment: the trigger for the Black Hole Cluster is under Shu's middle finger. That's right: ''he obliterates Vigagi by FlippingTheBird''.
** Near the end of the episode, Kyosuke and Axel re-engage one another as a redux of their previous fight at Langley. It begins playing out the same way Axel's fight with Beowulf did in the first episode; Axel notes this, [[HannibalLecture tells Kyosuke he needs to die before he goes crazy like his EvilTwin]], then tries to use the same trick he used to destroy the Gespenst MK III's arm. Kyosuke sees through the ruse, knees Axel's Soulgain in the gut with the Riese (breaking off the power-struggle) and ''unload the Riese's claymores in the Soulgain's face''.
* [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Wendolo]] finally makes his appearance with the Dikastes and has the Cybuster on the ropes and is smugly preparing to finish it off, but Wendolo's expression instantly changes to OhCrap as the Grungust, Dygenguard and SRX use their signature {{BFS}} attacks in sequence to make short work of [[spoiler:the Einst-infected]] Dikastes while "[[{{Leitmotif}} Steel]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Messiah]]" blares on the speakers.
* And last, but not least, pretty much the entire final episode.
** The Einst Regisseur appears, spawning innumerable Einst reinforcements around the White Star. Axel takes the initiative, wiping out a ton of Einst {{Mook}}s, as the others head for the BigBad. Kusuha, with the [=RyuKoOh=], summons a freakin' mountain and {{Colony Drop}}s it onto the Regisseur, but destroys it easily with an energy blast. The SRX decides to use the "[[CombinationAttack Hyper Tronium]] [[WaveMotionGun Buster Cannon]]", but the Regisseur takes the attack head-on without a scratch. Finally, the one attack the audience is dying to see does the trick: "Tornado Blade". On top of being more awesome than its game counterpart, we get to see the ''entirety'' of Aussenseiter's [[TransformingMecha transformation to its giant mechanical horse form]] (which the games never showed until the ''Second Original Generation''). The Dygenguard mounts the transformed Aussenseiter down the remains of the broken mountain and ''{{One Hit Kill}}s the equivalent of a PhysicalGod''. Unfortunately, '''[[spoiler:[[HijackedByGanon BEOWULF]]]]''' arrives from the Regisseur's ashes and shit has hit the fan.
*** [[spoiler:Beowulf]] begins summoning Einst copies of the Cybuster, Grungust, SRX and the [[spoiler:[[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Great Kaminarimon]]]] to stall the party as it charges towards Earth to complete the Regisseur's plans. Meanwhile, Gilliam teleports the ATX Team and Axel to intercept it, while the the rest of their allies proceed to destroy the copies, all to the tune of "[[ThemeMusicPowerUp Ryusei Lovers]]":
*** [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Yuuki Jaggar and Ricarla Borgnine]] in their respective Laz Angriff Raven and Randgrith Raven blast the arms off of the copy-SRX as the REAL SRX cleaves it in half with its "[[{{BFS}} Z.O. (Zol Orichalconium) Sword]]". Ryoto in the [=EXbein=] Boxer docks with Rio in the AM Gunner, alongside [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Villeta Vadim]] in the [=GuarBein=], firing the BFG to finish it off. Extra points to Viletta in channeling a bit of Ingram by invoking his CatchPhrase "Dead End Shot"!
*** The Octo Squad hammers away at the copy-[[spoiler:Great Kaminarimon]] with both Gespensts and the Siegerlion, before the Giganscudo Duro nails it with a successful "[[RammingAlwaysWorks Gigante Unghia]]".
*** Latooni and Shine perform a truncated Royal Heart Breaker on the copy-Grungust, while Arado and Seolla take its arms off with a "[[CombinationAttack Twin Bird Strike]]"; Irm finishes it off with his machine's doppleganger with the Grungust's "[[{{BFS}} Calamity Blade]]".
*** Ibis hits the copy-Cybuster with a "[[AttackPatternAlpha Manuveur RaMVs]]", followed by Lune deploying the "Cross Smasher" (and [[{{Fanservice}} getting nude in the process]]), with Masaki destroying its remains with a "Cosmo Nova".
*** As the ATX Team and Axel charge at [[spoiler:Beowulf]], it creates two copies of the Gespenst MK III; Lamia in the Vysaga and Kusuha in the [=RyuKoOh=] easily dispatch both with their units' respective {{BFS}}es. Meanwhile, Axel zones in and lets loose a "[[RocketPunch Genbu Goudan]]" towards [[spoiler:Beowulf]], but is beaten back and the remains of the Soulgain are lost in the atmosphere. However, this gives Kyosuke the chance to unload the Riese's "[[PileBunker Revolving Bunker]]" onto [[spoiler:Beowulf]]...but it doesn't work, and the Riese is heavily damaged by a counterattack. Kyosuke narrowly evades death again as [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst Alfimi]] [[TakingTheBullet takes the shot from a]] WaveMotionGun aimed at the Riese, but upon closely examining [[spoiler:Beowulf's MK III]], he notices [[ChekhovsGun the Soulgain's original arm embedded into the unit]]. Kyosuke slams the Riese hard onto [[spoiler:Beowulf]] and drives the empty Bunker onto the Soulgain's hand, pushing it into the cockpit, the same way Axel did at the start of the series...all set to "[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Machine Soul]]".
--->'''Kyosuke:''' "You got him, [[TheRival Axel]]...(drives the Revolving Bunker for a final hit)...Your strike got him!!"
*** This also makes [[spoiler:Beowulf's defeat by Axel from episode one retroactively more awesome. Beowulf makes a quip in the final episode about learning "not from the deaths of others, but our own". When did Beowulf get hurt that badly? The pilot, of course: Axel hit him with a "[[LimitBreak Code: Kirin]]" and a RocketPunch to the MK III's cockpit/core, to which it was among a collapsing facility and a detonating-interdimensional device. Evidently, Axel ''did'' kill Beowulf - it just didn't stick until the finale]].
