Awesome: Durarara!!
  • The fight in episode 3. That is all.
  • Episode 6. Kyohei Kadota singing and dancing when Kaztano regains consciousness. That's right. Steve Blum. Singing. And DANCING.
  • I have all the pawns I need...
  • The middle of episode 11 is this for Mikado. The episode then proceeds to 'maintain' the level of awesome, especially if you've watched Baccano!.
    • The true moment of awesome is when Mikado sends the email. Up to that point, everyone in the background of every episode is drawn in the same shade of grey. The moment that the email gets dispatched, everyone in that crowd starts being shown in full color. And people said the Dollars weren't a color gang...
  • Anri revealing herself as Saika's host by calmly stopping a knife with her forearm.
  • Shizuo going all-out against Saika's children.
    • And eventually finding restraint to stop himself and being happy about it.
  • Walker strolling up to a van full of kidnappers and casually lighting them all on fire.
    • Holy crap yes! And he even opened his eyes!
  • Episode 22 Anri is about to be assaulted by some Yellow Scarves thugs, so the Dollars start banding together to try and help her escape. Everyone who is close to Anri's location start assisting her- giving her a chance to escape, making obstacles for the thugs, and even attempting to disguise her with a giant bunny costume. There truly is a power in numbers.
  • Masaomi single-handedly taking down a whole bunch of Horada's goons in episode 23, armed only with a Jimmy bar. Notably more awesome in the light novel, in which it takes a few cracked ribs and a lead pipe to the head just to get him down, but even then he's not out cold.
  • Mikado and Anri's respective entries in their Big Damn Heroes moment in episode 23. It's hard to decide which is more epic, Mikado skidding in on the back of Celty's motorcycle, or Anri slicing a steel door in half with Saika.
  • Shizuo vs Horada in Episode 24. Also counts as a Crowning Moment of Funny. 'Nuff said.
  • Also from episode 24, Simon giving Izaya the punch he's been deserving for quite some time.
  • Volume 6 of the novel when Mikado stabs Aoba with the ball point pen. Hence why he's been promoted to a Memetic Badass to an extent.
  • The end of novel nine. THAT IS FUCKING ALL.
  • Shizuo vs. Izaya in Episode 25. AWESOME SAUSE!!!
    • Bring on the parkour!
    • A smaller example would be Seiji flooring a thug with one punch. Yes, that Seiji. This Troper thought it was awesome and he hates Seiji.
    • Mairu beating up Hiroshi and his group effortlessly and topping it off with some fanservice by kissing her sister soon afterward.
  • Shizuo's Big Damn Heroes moment in the sixth volume. Thugs are thrown, cars are kicked, and little girls are valiantly rescued.
  • Izaya stomping on a girls cellphone and then shaving a guys head.
  • OHKO punch by Shizuo to a street-punk...straight out of his clothes.
