* Yuri does an amazing job at chewing out [[spoiler:Flynn]] when he helps [[spoiler:Alexei capture Estelle]]
-->'''Yuri:'''Just what the hell are you doing? What happened to advancing as a Knight and fixing the empire from within? You've been nothing more than a damn puppet on Alexei's string. ''Don't you dare'' tell me that [[spoiler: the Don and Belius died]] for nothing more than that! He was there working alongside you this whole time, Flynn! How could you possibly not know?!
* Flynn [[RammingAlwaysWorks ramming]] the Heracles.
* Karol has one when proves himself quite a {{Determinator}} in the Blade Drifts of Zopheir, [[spoiler:going up against a huge monster ''by himself'' to save the rest of the party, culminating in the part where he's flipped into the air by the monster, grabs a conveniently-placed {{BFS}}, and stabs the monster hard enough so that the party can recover and join the battle in full.]]
* Three words: [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny NO]], [[NorioWakamoto ITEMS]], '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis EVEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRR!!!]]'''
* Every Mystic Arte attack in the game, even when the enemy is hitting you with them.
** "O power that lies at the root of all creation! O memory inscribed in ages past! Hear my call and arise before me! ''Ancient Catastrophe!'' (EarthShatteringKaboom) ''This'' is the fruit of my research.
** ''This ends now! Oh brilliant blade of coldest steel, rend the infinite darkness, and crush my enemies to nothing!'' '''''[[CallingYourAttacks SAVAGE WOLF FURY!!]]'''''
** "''You will never walk this earth again! WELCOME TO THE HORNET'S NEST! [[EvilLaugh AAAHAHAHAHAAHA!]]''"
** [[spoiler:"[[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Struggle against these holy chains!]] '''''SHINING BIND!'''''"]]
** At one point, the game actually rewards you with an achievement for pulling off a CMOA-worthy finish with a Mystic Arte: [[spoiler:Duke's second form in the final battle. Considering the wording of the achievement, it seems possible you can do it with anybody, but Yuri does it by, after his normal final slash of his Mystic Arte, jumping up in the air, shouting "This is it!" and hitting Duke with a super-sized Azure Edge.]]
* Yuri's small speech to Flynn about his motivation for [[spoiler:murdering Ragou and Cumore]]:
-->'''Yuri:''' The laws have always been the tools of whoever happens to hold all the chips.
-->'''Flynn:''' Just saying that doesn't make it right for individuals to judge right from wrong, or for you to operate out of your own private court of law! If the laws are at fault, then fixing those laws comes first. It's for that very reason that I'm still with the Imperial Knights!
-->'''Yuri:''' But you can't deny that lives were saved because those bastards were put down. You'd rather tell those people, 'Sorry you have to die today. I promise we'll change things real soon'?
-->'''Flynn:''' That's not what I'm saying at all!
-->'''Yuri:''' They're out there, you know. People so bad they'll just go on hurting others. What can the average person do but be victimized by people like that? You know it was the same way with our people in the lower quarter.
-->'''Flynn:''' Even so, Yuri, what you're doing isn't right. Do you intend to [[PayEvilUntoEvil rain your justice down on all the villains of the world?]] [[NotSoDifferent That's the behavior of a common criminal.]]
-->'''Yuri:''' I recognize it for what it is, and I've made my choices. [[spoiler:Murder is a crime.]]
--->'''Flynn:''' [[spoiler:...And still, you intend to dirty your hands?]]
--->'''Yuri:''' [[spoiler:Intend to? I already have.]]
* Yuri [[spoiler:[[ShutUpHannibal talking down Phaeroh, a being capable of going toe to toe with Alexei's CoolShip, by pointing out the flaws in his logic.]] ]]
** Kind of ruined [[spoiler: by it also being Yuri's logic previously and no mention being made of that.]]
*** Made awesome again when you realize [[spoiler: [[FridgeLogic Yuri changed his logic and thought differently when the "infected part" became Estelle, not only a friend and someone he cared about, but someone who was honest and only had good intentions.]] You'd be crazy not to get a little hypocritical.]]
*** Not so much hypocritical as reformed, wouldn't you say? His ShutUpHannibal doesn't come from a place of ''hypocrisy'' - it comes from [[spoiler: understanding exactly what Phaeroh is doing, because he did it himself and grew up past it. It's simply CharacterDevelopment.]] The fact that no one [[LampshadeHanging points this out]] is the only annoying part.
* While some people are outraged at Vesperia's [[UpdatedRerelease PS3 release with extended content]], no one can deny just how badass Rita has gotten with one simple spell. All together now: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CCMlHjtkjM&NR=1 INDIGNATION!]] Bonus points for [[ContinuityNod Dhaos hitting the game's damage limit of 9999999 when it is used against him.]]
* Yuri, Karol, Judith, and Rita, in succession, punching out Raven [[spoiler:after he returns to the party after fighting them as Schwann]]. This may also qualify for CrowningMomentOfFunny, especially Rita's line: "I didn't want to feel left out." Later on you find out that [[spoiler:Estelle smacked him in the head after they explained things to her]].
** Along the same lines, the rest of the party (but especially Repede, Karol, and Rita) get one when the latter two punch out ''Yuri'' for trying to go solo for a bit.
* Speaking of the post-Schwann boss fight, the entire scene is [=CMoA=]: [[spoiler: with Raven revealing himself to be an immortal DeathSeeker, then performing a ([[NotQuiteDead pseudo]]) HeroicSacrifice to get his friends out alive. It manages to be so awesome, in fact, the the resulting EasilyForgiven scene ''works'', purely due to the RuleOfCool]].
* Yuri and Flynn get a collective one when [[spoiler:they [[DuelBoss beat the shit]] out of each other to resolve things - not because they're actually trying to ''kill'' each other, but because they're HeterosexualLifePartners -- uh, friends, and that's how they work things out.]]
* Another Yuri/Flynn example: When they both plow through somewhere around 50 monsters to some of the game's best music to plant what amounts to a magic-nuke in the middle of a massive hoard, while having a casual conversation. The only down side is the fact that this is the only time you can have Flynn in your party.
** Well, that and the fact that Flynn is horrible to control.
*** He's much faster in the {{PS3}} version. [[spoiler:He'd have to be, he's a permanent party member now.]]
* Fighting [[spoiler:Dhaos, Shizel, Barbatos, and Kratos from, respectively, Phantasia, Eternia, Destiny, and Symphonia]] is pretty god damn awesome in its own right, especially with their [[LimitBreak Mystic Artes]]: [[spoiler:"Dhaos Laser!" or "Struggle against these holy chains! Shining Bind!"]]
** This gets even more epic in the PS3 version: [[spoiler:You now fight all 4 of them ''at the same time''.]] As if that weren't enough, once you beat them, [[spoiler:the rest of your playable characters all show up at once to fight you. They have boss-like stats and access to their mystic artes. How's that for an arena match?]]
* Who can forget the last fight with Zagi? Upon defeating him he asks whether he should [[spoiler:turn the rest of his body into a blastia as well.]] Yuri coldly replies with [[spoiler:"Do it in Hell." before slicing Zagi across the chest and pushing him off the cliff.]] And all without even a change in expression. I mean, damn.
* Fighting [[spoiler:Kratos]] on Unknown. He is unquestionably the hardest fight in the entire game. Even the Fell Arms boss is nothing compared to how incredibly powerful he is. [[spoiler:Kratos]] is incredibly fast, breaks out of combos with ease, hits incredibly hard, and when he goes into Overlimit, ''you have to run from him or he will slaughter you in the blink of an eye'' and then he'll will use [[spoiler:Shining Bind]]; it hits for 30k damage. It's one of the most challenging fights in the TalesSeries, but it feels to great when you finally win.
** [[spoiler:Kratos]] on Unknown? Please. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBhltuBj9KI&fmt=18 Watch this Youtube user open a can of whoop-ass on said opponent]], [[DuelBoss with Yuri]], [[HarderThanHard on Unknown difficulty]], ''[[SelfImposedChallenge alone.]]'' If not a CMOA for Yuri himself [[spoiler:for dealing ''2.5 million damage'' in three minutes]], then definitely for the player.
* Vesperia's plot manages to be a SUBTLE GreenAesop, how often does that happen? Not to mention it's a green aesop that isn't aimed at those ten or younger.
* Remember Sekundes in ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia''? [[spoiler:Yup, in the {{PS3}} version, Rita can pull that off too. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CCMlHjtkjM It's every bit as epic as it sounds.]]]]
** Dhaos was killed in his own game by Indignation. Programmers thought it would be received well by the Fans if Rita's Indignation was an instant kill when used on him. Certainly a CMOA for the programmers themselves.
*** And it manages to one-up the Sekundes thing. Did you think that Indignation dealing one-hundred-thousand damage was cool? Were you impressed by a player using Yuri to deal 2.5 million damage in a few minutes? Then you'd better be impressed with Rita dealing one point short of ''ten-million damage'' in ''one hit''!
*** Oh, and to gain the Indignation attack, she has to basically reenact the opening to ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia''. By going into overlimit 4 and using Thunder Blade on Dhaos, who appears in 200-man-melee, while he's at half health or less. She'll then spontaneously use Indignation (for the first time in that save file), and obliterate Dhaos in one final hit.
* From ''The First Strike'', Yuri overhears some Guild member boasting about how he ditched his client because the client annoyed him. Yuri (And later Flynn after one of the guild members drags him into the fight) kick the ass of almost everyone in the bar with just their fists. Also a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
