Mr Game & Watch ambushing Snake in this comic.
Strip 200. Not so much a crowning moment in the comic, as for the author, who, as it turns out, is both an excellent singer, and has a stupendously awesomely helpful family.
Look no further than A Mushroom Kingdom Carol, Part 7.
Mario: You got it... Junior.
The opening to Part 8 also qualifies:
Bowser: YOU... I can't believe you're back! But where's my son?
Mario: ... (drops axe with a clang)
The Yoshi's transporting elderly Mario in much the same way they did Baby Mario in Yoshi's Island. One of the most awesome Call Back s ever.
The students of the Cocoon Academy Vs. Dark Matter.
"Weh. You call th is madness? Step Aside. Waluigi Time."
On a meta level, this strip in particular is an example of Stylistic Suck done right. True, that art style was sucky, but being so faithful to any given art style isn't an easy task, even when it comes to imitating the CD-i cutscenes. And Matthew Taranto brilliantly pulled that stunt!
After a long hiatus due to a debilitating disease and several weeks in the hospital, the comic returned with a bang with the History of Nintendo, a funny, well-performed Filk Song about... Nintendo's surprisingly lengthy history. It's a great way to restart the comic.
Kirby's breaking point.
Believe it or not, they gave Slippy of Star Fox one, where he first failed at Battle Toads, before leaving sad while dodging meteors that qualify as Bullet Hell! See for yourself.
Keep in mind that the those meteors constituted the most difficult challenge in the actual Battletoads game. And Slippy tears through it without even looking!
Luigi's Holiday Vacation is one for the titular plumber. Not only is his Butt Monkey status defied; he manages to be the hero, get the recognition he deserves for it, and all without any unforeseen side-effects for him.
Link on the other hand... To give you an idea, he just steamrolls the game, jumping on enemies along the way. The final battle with Ganon? Used a Starman, ended it in a few It helps that Luigi seconds. grew a beard.
One for the fandom: A member of the Brawl in the Family forums somehow got Charles Martinet, the voice behind Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi, to say "Too bad, Waluigi time" on camera!
It's shown in this comic that King Dedede caught a frickin' Even more awesome is how nonchalantly he acts about it.
King Dedede: Go get 'im Rayquaza.
Even more for the fans; as of 11/13/2013, very early after it was made, the kickstarter for , the game planned by the creator, the kickstarter is halfway to $30,000!
Tadpole Treble The goal for the PC and mobile versions was reached on December 7, 2013, and the Wii U version is currently gaining additional funding through PayPal.
Luigi ends Waluigi time after Waluigi and Wario go too far, by going not after the comic, but the games themselves by turning Waluigi into an assist trophy.
Everyone does their Brawl intro poses, giving the comic an approaching sense of finality.
The final comic. All of it.
One Final Song.
