* CrazyAwesome: Professor Layton flies a helicopter, which he built out of random parts in a shed, up a massive robot. It gets destroyed by the robot, but he jumps off it, pulls himself up to the robot's top, has a swordfight with Descole, using a piece of piping instead of a sword, [[ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask stops to play an organ]], raises a kingdom out of the sea, goes back to fighting, blows up the robot ''by accident'', and gets off completely unscathed.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome:
** Inspector Grosky gets this in spades. He outruns sharks 2 to 3 times, survives an explosion, and still manages to find Layton and the others. Can you say {{Determinator}}?
** Any time Emmy is on screen too.
*** It gets even more awesome when they team up.
** Luke running up a mobile fortress almost getting killed several times from [[EverythingTryingToKillYou sharp things flying at him]] to rescue Janice/[[spoiler:Melina.]]
** Emmy proves her pure badassery when she kicks a goon right in the nuts, which a split second later as the guy groans in pain, she spin kicks him in the head.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome / CrowningMomentOfAwesome:
** Without spoiling too much, at one point, Layton plays two parts in a three-part harmony at the same time. If that's not a musical [=CMoA=], this is not a world worth living in.
** NanaMizuki is Janice's seiyuu. In the movie (''especially'' the end credits song) she shows an impressive vocal range, even if the songs all do have the same basic tune.
** The Remix of Descole's theme.
** Luke finally gets his own {{Leitmotif}}, and wow did that boy earn it.
* VideoGameMoviesSuck: Inverted. IGN (who gave it a 7/10) called it one of the first good video game movies.
