Awesome / Ah! My Goddess

  • Lind and Keiichi kicking ass in the "Fighting Wings" arc and associated TV special.
  • A minor example, but how many people have the stones to backtalk the queen of demons, which Keiichi essentially did? Hild certainly found it awesome, telling Belldandy, "That Keiichi — Rrrowr!"
    • What happened immediately after that is, if anything, even more awesome. Hild, using her most withering glare, demands Belldandy give Keiichi to her. Bell, without missing a beat or breaking her smile, tells the demon queen, "Absolutely not."
  • Keiichi shows his worth once again in the Hagall arc. He had a central point in defeating each of Hagall's minions with sheer cleverness. He is the only human there, and he manages to top almost everybody.
    • In extension, Belldandy gets another moment when she faces a demon so strong that she can destroy songs with her fists. When she is about to attack Keiichi, Belldandy steps in and continuously fends her off with high speed attacks. Urd proceeds to comment that Belldandy has obtained a Valkyrie license, and that is why she has incredible fighting moves.
      • And even then, Keiichi's the one to pull out the victory, by tricking her into hitting the door she was guarding with a full-force punch. Whether the door or her fist broke from the impact, they'd win. Such cleverness earns him her respect.
  • The singing during the climax of The Movie.
    • Any time any of the goddesses sing, period.
    • In the TV series, there is an episode where Urd needs her two halves fused together with the help of Hild, her mother — it's a long story (that's actually a combination of two separate manga stories). Anyway, with Hild's singing in minor coupled with Belldandy and Skuld both in major, crawling up and up the scale. Wow.
  • The Fighting Wings TV Special deserves a mention for the totally awe-inspiring chorus in the background when the goddesses and their angels get their Crowning Moment of Awesome.
  • Keiichi asking God for his daughter's hand in marriage in chapter 294 of the manga.
  • Skuld trapping a body-stealing Eldritch Abomination in a floppy disk, and then killing it with a magnet.
  • Hild calling Belldandy out for being a liar and hypocrite (heaven has hacked K1's mind to keep them an utterly chaste couple), when she and Tyr were forced apart despite still loving each other. And being right.
  • Every time Keiichi races, he's collecting some awesome. He's faster than two holders of the title of "Racing Queen of Nekomi" (inferred by Megumi conquering the title by outracing the previous Queen but refusing to use the title until Keiichi is gone), and has competed in a world-class rally and won in spite of Aoshima's sabotage (the runner-up duo believed Keiichi and Belldandy had used magic to pass them… later they inspected the course and realized Keiichi simply knew a feature of it they didn't know and was also as good as them). Also, he survived Tamiya and Otaki's madness in modifying vehicles (a madness that in one occasion left Belldandy speechless).
    • Keiichi's two losses in a race are moments of awesome for both him and the eventual winner:
      • The first one is a race against Chihiro, with vehicles modified from the same starting point. Their racing abilities are equal, but Chihiro has beefed up her vehicle's engine… and when the modifications start wearing it out, she replaces it with an identical one while still racing.
      • To have the right to refuse to take over as president of the Motor Club, Sora must race against Keiichi in a race organized by Chihiro (who is almost as crazy as Tamiya and Otaki), in which they must use two identical tiny vehicles (except that Keiichi broke-in his engine, so in the actual race his is faster), and they can choose whatever route they want as long as they stay inside the campus and pass three checkpoints in the proper order. Sora has on her team the entire Motor Club (at first fearful of Sora's shyness and nervous breakdowns whenever someone points out her small stature too many times in a row, but later they grow to like her), superior knowledge of the campus – which allows her to choose shorter trails than Keiichi, including passing through a women's dressing room where Keiichi won't dare to ride in case he decides to simply follow her… at least not until Urd drugs him – and Belldandy (assigned to help Sora to even out the odds), plus Skuld and Urd screwing up while they try to help Keiichi. Sora barely wins… but agrees to become NITMCC president anyway.
    • What makes this even more notable is the fact that the goddess' and other shenanigans eventually reduce Keiichi's vehicle to nothing more than a flat board with two wheels and a motor on it, and he has to ride it like a skateboard while holding the throttle like a buzzer to keep going. When he reappears after a lengthy absence, he does so by jumping a low wall and touching down right behind Sora. This by itself almost causes her to have a freak out less than a hundred meters from the finish - but she manages to pull together long enough to secure the win.
