Awesome / Endless Frontier

Warning: Unmarked spoilers below.
  • When Haken orders his land battleship Zeit Krokodil to do a frickin' jump over to the Einst dimension.
  • At the end of the final fight, the Big Bad begins regenerating for another go when Haken leaps in and interrupts it with a well-placed Last Showdown. Doubles as a Shout-Out to Namco × Capcom, as Reiji and Xiaomu perform a similar feat against that game's Big Bad.
  • The Zeit Krokodil tackles the Giant Marquis, an entire city built on top of a masoleum, mounted on tank treads — and it wins!
  • Haken absolutely refusing to suffer a Heroic B.S.O.D., skipping the melodrama and going straight to the "World of Cardboard" Speech...then finding a way to turn it into a boob joke.
  • In the (sadly un-localized) sequel, shortly after Axel joins, Aschen gets Brainwashed with Pete's Code PTP and was about to activate Code ATA (Ashes To Ashes). This triggers bits of Axel's memory of a previous rescue for Aschen's "sister" Lamia Loveless and he manages to re-enact the scene...while still an amnesiac.
    Haken: Stop that, Ashen!
    Suzuka: What a pile of junk! Over here, Ashen!
    Haken: Ashen, I'm coming! Wait for me.
    Aschen: Don't move. If you come closer, Code ATA will activate. Please don't come, Captain.
    Haken: Ashen, what am I supposed to do?
    Kaguya: Ashen-san, please don't make Haken-san sad.
    Aschen: My Code ATA is different from W06. I can destroy the whole block. Princess Kaguya, please. Take the Captain and run away.
    Neige: Aledy? Can't you do something with that Haki of yours? Like a Kiai or something?
    Aledy: Ashen's body is a machine. Even if I hit her, I don't think...
    Aschen: It's pointless. Code ATA has already been started. Any interference will trigger it.
    Dorothy: Oh, this is a really evil Timb Bomb.
    Koma: This is really bad, meow!
    Haken: Stop that. Stooop! Aschen!
    KOS-MOS(Mary): Aschen...If you were to be destroyed here, you will lose not just your body.
    Aschen: I'm sorry KOS-MOS, it's up Hurry up, the captain...
    Haken: ...Kuh...
    Axel: ...Code-ATA, Code-DTD...there has to be something. *Dark Knight starts playing*
    Alfimi: Axel, can't you do something? I have the feeling you can do this.
    Anne: Alfimi, do you remember something?
    Xiaomu: But we can't leave her and we can't get close either. This is a lose or lose situation.
    Axel: With Code-DTD, there is way.
    Suzuka: This is no time for jokes.
    Axel: Yes. "Dust to Dust" Limiter Removal with heat regulation. I should have priority over ATA.
    Haken: Priority, Axel, you don't mean?
    Axel: Operating from the outside. If we want to remove her curse, that's the only way.
    Aledy: But even if Miss Aschen receive some sort of blunt attack, she will explode anyway.
    Axel: I can only rely on guts to get the timing right.
    Neige: Guts? Really?
    Aschen: Code-ATA. Activation.
    MOMO: No, you can't do that!
    Haken: Stop this, Aschen!
    Kaguya: Aschen-san !
    Kattse: Retreat Haken! We can't die here!
    Aledy: So this is it.
    Axel: No, I'm going to do it.
    Haken: It's hopeless Axel. If you get close to Aschen, you will...
    Axel: Trust me. This life you gave her... 'm going to give her back! Alfimi, give me a little hand here.
    Alfimi: Count on me.
  • The whole final encounter with Pete Pain is one big CMOA for Axel.
    Pete: You won't be able to proceed any furter W07, and you too Haken W00!
    Axel: Hey, Haken...Can it be?
    Everyone: WHAT? Haken W00?? So he's not human?
    Haken: Hold down your horses. I'm a test-tube Baby, that's what he's talking about.
    Axel: Haken is from the W-series? W00?
    Alfimi: What is wrong Axel?
    Axel: I'm almost there.
    • Then after the battle Pete pulls a Heel–Face Turn and decide to pull a heroic sacrifice to destroy the big wall preventing everyone from proceeding.
    Axel: Are you really sure about this ? You're gonna die just being a puppet. If your creator knew this, he or she would be so sad.
    Pete: Heh...If you do meet the person who created me someday, then please give her the following message : Thank you for creating me, for giving me life, Mistress Lemon.
    Axel: LE...MON?
  • Then after Axel goes silent, Kouta notices his friend is didn't talked for a few minutes. He asks what's the matter. Neige asks too what was he was talking about with Pete. Axel answers:" Nothing, Nothing at all." with his usual sad face. He just remembered Lemon, and he probablt just remembered she's dead.

  • And at the end, when everyone returns in the original worlds.
    Axel: Uuh ...
    Haken: Axel's facial expression ... sorta changed.
    Alfimi: Axel, did...did your memory came back?
    Axel: It seems so. Alfimi, Kouta. I'm sorry I worried you. But first I have a question to you, Haken. Your family name, Browning, where did you get it? Your father's family name is Moses, right?
    Haken: I got it from the person whom you can call my mother: Lemon Browning.
    Axel: Lemon...So that was it, heh.
    Haken: Although Ashen did the raising.
    Axel: WHAT? W-07? An android of the W-series like you?
    Aschen: Hey, I'm not 23 for nothing.
    Axel: Haken, you want to come with me ? To know where you come from and who you really are?
    Haken: Nah, probably not. You are probably involved in this ship. You probably know more about me than myself, even probably my real father. But I have my family here and my 2nd father.
    Axel: I wanted to hear your answer. Are we gonna meet again?
    Haken: Like Reiji said, all the worlds are connected. We'll definitly meet again.
    Axel: I just wanted to hear your answer. Press the switch doc, we have a place to return to.
    • Doubles as Heartwarming too of course.
    • Then it becomes a promise he and Aschen fulfill in The Moon Dwellers.
