Awesome / Heavy Rain

Ethan Mars
  • Defeating a thug in "The Shark" trial by killing or knocking him down.
  • The time when the police are raiding the hotel and Ethan's mad dash to get out of there; it all culminates in him depending on the player giving up when surrounded by cops or jumping three floors to the concrete below, getting up and carjacking a cab all to Blake saying "Holy Fuck!"
  • Any of his trials is a Crowning Moment of Awesome.
    • Special shoutout goes to the Lizard, which has him cutting off part of his finger, SCREAMING. This does not stop him.

Madison Paige
  • Hitting Paco Mendes with a lamp and holding him at gunpoint.
  • Also in the chapter with Paco Mendes, when she vocalizes an orgasm to throw off his bodyguard and keep him from entering the private room. Crosses over into a Crowning Moment of Funny.
  • Going to the warehouse past the police by motorcycle as she almost run over them, including Blake.
  • If she is the only one in the final chapter, she smashes The Origami Killer upside the head while they're talking.
  • In the Taxidermist DLC, one of the options for Madison to escape from the taxidermist is to kill him. She does this by castrating him. WITH A CHAINSAW.
  • When Madison fights off 'The Doc' despite being tied down to an operating table. She even kills him by jabbing a drill into his heart.

Norman Jayden
  • Getting Mad Jack to surrender by threatening that he is going to blow up the gasoline.
  • Saving Ethan from Rabid Cop Blake by throwing him to a wall and punching him in the face.
  • "Blake, you are an unbalanced, psychopathic asshole!"
  • Pretty much every time he calls out Lieutenant Blake is a CMOA. If Blake gives him a hard time for not shooting Nathaniel, Norman just calls Blake a sissy.
    • Or, alternatively, tells him with an impatient and annoyed tone that things ended up going well, adding a firm "don't bust my balls with your post-mortems, alright?" Blake doesn't even say anything in response.
  • Has a CMOA from beyond the grave when he gives Blake a scare by putting on the ARI sunglasses.
  • Having Blake and Perry suspended for Ethan's death if he survives.
  • When a smug guard tells him he doesn't speak cop, he grabs him by the neck and yells "Watch my lips, asshole, because I've got no time to translate."

Scott Shelby
  • His first scene involves beating the crap out of a scumbag who threatens Lauren, the Hooker with a Heart of Gold.
  • Calming down a robber and telling him to leave.
    • Alternatively, knocking the robber out cold with one solid punch to the face.
  • His fight with Kramer's son's bodyguards.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge in "Face to Face" where he guns down Kramer's men before getting to Kramer himself.
    • In particular, stopping, rubbing his neck, and shooting a guard without even looking at him

  • Lauren has one when she guns down Scott after finding out that he's the Origami Killer.
  • Even Carter Blake has one when in a Big Damn Heroes moment he puts Miroslav Korda down right after Jayden is down.
