Although a bit character near the start, Boulder the Ogre is decapitated by Kore. Before keeling over for good, he proceeds to get back up and pose defiantly.
Most of what Ears does after he gets his armor. Most notably, clearing out an entire crowd during the rescue of Fumbles.
Note: He's a paladin, and one of the finest examples of that class you'll ever find. So the way he lies to get people to flee is a strong moment of characterization that proves Good doesn't have to be Stupid.
He does feel uncomfortable to attack from behind though, and he oftentimes gets Honor Before Reason moments.
While the previous is, indeed, awesome, Thaco shows that Complains has only inherited a bit of his awesome in this strip.
Here, Thaco shows off his monk skills by catching an arrow, jumping across the pipes in a sewer, and impaling Dellyn Goblinnslayer on a broken pipe. Then, he finds the knife Dellyn used to torture him with and calmly walks up to him, all while Dellyn desperately struggles to get up.
There is also Tempts Fate, whose existence is a never-ending series of Crowning Moments of Awesome.
The demon Noe appears every time you say his name (assuming the correct setup). He will be summoned three times and answer a question each time truthfully. Summoned a fourth time, however, and he'll kill you all horribly. Because he also will be summoned when homonyms of his name are said, it's pretty easy to summon him accidentally. The three goblins realize their predicament and are shitting themselves, when K'sleliss decides that he's not going to have this hang over their heads like the sword of Damocles, summons the demon, asks him a question about his positioning when summoned, summons him again, asks about how well he can withstand having his throat torn out, and summons him for the killing spree summon, and tears out Noe's throat while materializing. The three goblins stand there in shock.
The author gets one, although it may have been unintentional. He recently released the stats◊ for the creature known as "Mr. Fingers". And as any D and D player knows, if you can stat it, then you can kill it. That's right, he made it possible to KILL the monster that had haunted his nightmares as a child, and not just by himself, but by D and D players everywhere, anytime anyone wants to. Payback, bitch.
Unintentional? Thunt gets a meta-Moment of Awesome for transcribing the unkillable nightmare horror from his childhood onto paper, and decisively killing it, with HIS CHARACTERS no less. Now that's catharsis.
K'Sellis has been all but crippled lately. His arms and legs have all but rotted off, and his tail is about to join him. So what does he do when Grem is in serious trouble fighting Mr. Fingers? Leaps through the air and BITES HIS FUCKING HEAD OFF.
Real life example when Thunt's house was in danger of being foreclosed on. He put out a tempts fate where the goal was $30,000 in a little over a month. Fans hit that goal three days in.
Kin gets one in a different way. An alternative Minmax has a demon as an unwilling servant and they don't have any holy weapons. So what does she do? She gets the demon to tell her his True Name in order to release him from the servitude.
Two minor ones in rapid succession, although they are done while Forgath is stalling Kore, which is a CMOA by itself; first, Fumbles, AKA Senor Vorpal, does something smart, maybe starting to recover; then, in the next comic, Forgath defeats Kore's shield by grabbing on it and making Kore fall on his face.
For as much as we all want him to die horribly, you have to give it to Kore. Performing a flip move after falling on his face, armor and all, to get on his back, and then rasing himself up with levers he had in his shield just for such an occasion was pretty darn awesome. You can now trully believe that this bastard took on whole armies by himself.
Forgath actually choosing to give time for Minmax and the Goblins to solve the puzzle by battling Kore is definitely this. Remember, Forgath is perfectly aware who Kore is and what he's capable of. He knows he's fighting a losing battle, but is willing to give it his all for the sake of his allies. Even when he's being sliced up he continues to battle the insane Knight Templar with little trepidation on his face, just grim determination.
Biscuit is probably the only character living who could beat Kore one on one. He defeats the Viper Clan, the strongest Goblins in the area, by siccing a nearly unkillable beast on them after going a few rounds with it himself. Then he goes full One-Man Army, against the clan... and decimates it. The only real challenge is Prince Grem, and Biscuit still beats him. Even when Grem uses Finger's finger, first Biscuit bats it away with his axe, and when he accidentally steps on it he almost cuts Grem in half... after severing his leg to prevent the spread of the decay. Then he takes a mouth full of healing potions, bites one and then jumps off the cliff...and lands on the Viper Queen who had just fatally wounded Fox despite Fox outfighting her earlier. Then Biscuit offers her a healing potionfrom his mouth.
When he, upon finding and saving the defeated Duv (who not long ago had tried to kill him), goes Bad AssWarrior Therapist on her. To help her get over the loss of her wing, the source of her White Terror "kill everything but goblins" obsession, he rips the other one clean off and explains that when young, a Roak orc has his prized possession taken from him to teach him not to dwell too much on loss.
Barbarian... Minmax (Also doubles as a crowning moment of heartwarming, considering what he says later).
Minmax discovering there is more to life than XP, treasure and an unbeatable character build. Specifically, when he found out that Dellyn Goblinslayer, who was previously everything Minmax wanted to be, raped and beat Kin the Yuan-Ti every night, he threw Dellyn out a window.
The best part of it being that this is the first of Minmax's actions that make him somewhat likeable, even if it's only just because he punched out a rapist psychopath.
Not to mention that when Dellyn breaks the sword, Minmax just grabs him, headbutts him, and then slams him in the face. Which is immediately followed by Forgath using a seemingly useless joke item to set the aforementioned enemy on fire. Did I mention that Dellyn is partially made of wood?
As a combo with Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, the fact that Minmax is putting aside his racism of monsters to make Kin the Yuan-Ti as normal as possible, and going to extreme lengths to give her a proper birthday party, complete with gift and mice is one hell of a Moment of Awesome.
To make this perfectly clear how awesome this is, Minmax is pinned to the wall by a magic ring's power. He pulls off his belt buckle, tosses it into the magic hole-thingy, all while completely silent. The alt-Minmax even drops his ridiculously cool pipe as he tries to run away.
Another Awesome/Heartwarming overlapping moment; thanks to their Dungeon Bypass, the team have failed to get the key they need to open the final door. Down the hallway is the room they were supposed to go, but it looks like whoever leaps down to get the keys will be trapped with a lot of hostile alt-teams. It leads to this, followed by a series of fight scenes that are just... well, see for yourself.
Minmax knows 38 ways to kill someone using only his thumb. Here's # 23. Over seven years in the making, but hell if that isn't a Chekhov's Gun.
