Awesome / How It Should Have Ended

  • They managed to get a cameo from Stan "The Man" Lee in How The Amazing Spider-Man Should Have Ended.
  • Awesome Music:
    • The rap-style synopsis of TRON.
    • LAPIDUS!
    • Whe-en Captain America throws his mighty shield...
      • This song became so well liked that it's gotten a callback in nearly everything that Cap's been involved in, usually used as a Take That against him (as Batman, Superman, and/or others keep adding people or things that don't "yield" to his shield, such as the ice in which Cap was frozen in, the Winter Soldier and Spider-Man, who both caught the shield at one point, etc.).
    • The Zombie Song (Extended Version)
    • The song at the end of the video about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey that asks viewers to subscribe, encourages them to watch other videos, and warns against feeding the trolls.
    • HISHE marks its 10-year anniversary with a music video called Bat Blood, which is a parody of Bad Blood and has Batman rounding up several movie heroes, such as Doc Brown, Kiddo, Harry Potter, Baymax, Han Solo and Furiosa to fight Superman and the rest of the Justice League. Some people claim it is even better than the original one.
  • Let's face it, even after all those years the "Terminator meets Back to the Future" Fake Trailer is still the most awesome video they made. Watch it on Youtube and at any given time among the ten most recent comments will be please to expand it into a full movie. The video doesn't even have that many jokes, it's just So Cool, It's Awesome.
  • Thor delivers a pretty sick burn to Superman and Batman in his HISHE:
    That may be true... but at least I have a father.
    • To the point where both Batman and Superman admit it was sick.
  • Captain America pulls one off too when he points out that the Justice League movie's still in Development Hell, while the Avengers (At the time of the video) were gearing up for their venture. Even Batman and Superman admit that's a pretty good burn.
  • And to top it off, we have the Avengers et all reminding Sups and Bats about their box office income.
  • The DC duo gets back at one of them, by leaving Thor in the booth while they hide outside.
  • The HISHE guys even managed to get an MOA in a video that wasn't even theirs. At the end of The Nostalgia Critic's review of Man of Steel, they happen to be in the same restaurant as NC's version of Batman and Superman, after it's noted that the scene seemed familiar. And of course HISHE Batman's response to NC's Batman:
    Batman doesn't have a beard!
    • As a testament to the awesomeness of this scene, Superman and Batman appear in the intro used in almost every Nostalgia Critic review released in 2014.
  • In "How The Dark Knight Should Have Ended", Batman actually ran over the Joker, but didn't kill him. Even Superman was impressed.
  • In "How God of War should have ended, Kratos goes berserk and decides to kill every god. However, he is unable to kill Morgan Freeman, because he is just that cool.
  • After their take on both Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit had the "use the eagles to solve everything" joke, "How The Desolation of Smaug should have ended defies it instead, with Bilbo chewing out Gandalf for trying to use it a third time.
    • Also the scary depiction of Smaug.
  • "The Lego HISHE" continues right from where the Movie has ended. It's made for a tiniest fraction of the movie's budget, but looks just as AWESOME!
    • It also sees (Lego!) Superman single-handedly take out all of Lord Business' forces and hailed a as hero, rather than get taken out by a wad of gum in the movie (which Batman suggests must have been "Kryptonite gum").
    • Later in the video, Superman and Batman look outside to see an epic battle being waged between the Master Builders and the Lego Duplo aliens that popped up at the end of the movie.
      Duplo Alien: We are here to destroy you!
      Emmet: (clobbering enemy in his Mini-Mecha) No, no you're not!
  • In The Godzilla HISHE, Walter White has Godzilla roar right in his face and doesn't even blink! BADASS!
  • The incredibly frightening and accurate depiction of James Spader's Ultron.
  • In their Guardians of the Galaxy HISHE, Ronan being smart enough to just ignore Starlord this time and just win.
  • Quicksilver saving both Trask and Mystique so quickly, the only time he becomes visible at all occurs when he takes Mystique away to safety, then brings Xavier in to assure Trask of mutants' goodness. Later, Quicksilver unmasks Batman (who seems more protective about his secret identity than he does now) without him noticing.
  • The ''Age of Ultron'' teaser parody has Ultron quoting various Disney movies. Hearing him quote "A Whole New World" actually does sound cooler than the Avengers give him credit for, considering the words "shining, shimmering, splendid" fit Ultron's character surprisingly well.
  • Doubling as a Crowning Moment of Funny Batman gets one in How The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Should Have Ended - Part One where he survives a planet destroying meteor simply BECAUSE HE'S BATMAN.
  • In How The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Should Have ended - Part Two
    • Magneto shows up, casually curbstomps the Ultron army, and proceeds to claim Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver as his kids as well as state they're mutants.
    • Scarlet Witch stops Batman mid-catchphrase by making him afraid of bats.
  • The parts in How Revenge of the Sith Should Have Ended is awesome enough that one could wish it were actual canon. Such as the Jedi not holding the Idiot Ball while planning a coup against Palpatine, Anakin reporting Palpatine's confession to the Jedi Council, and the ending with Anakin and Padme raising Luke and Leia.
  • In Return of the Jedi, after Vader rejoices about having a daughter as well as a son, he suddenly asks Palpatine how Padme could have possibly given birth to a set of twins if he killed her. Palpatine tries very poorly to explain himself only for Vader to realize that he was lied to and attacks him.
  • In The Force Awakens:
    • After being apprehended by Han, Chewie and Finn, Captain Phasma secretly alerts an entire stormtrooper platoon to their current location. That's why she gets the platinum armour!
    • Also, Luke's Big Damn Heroes moment when he shows up just in the nick of time to kill Kylo Ren and save Han's life.
    • In the Alternate HISHE, Leia reveals that the Resistance has spent the last 30 years building their own Death Star, the Right Back Atcha. It destroys the Starkiller Base in one shot.
    • In the LEGO HISHE, Luke kicking Kylo Ren's ass after he's tracked down on his island. Then he proceeds to beat him with a Stormtrooper's baton (along with Anakin Skywalker's ghost appearing and siding with Luke after Ren begs for his help), then Luke drags him home to his parents using the Force.
  • In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
    • Batman prepares his second Kryptonite grenade, aims at Superman, shoots, and Supes dodges.
      Batman: What? How?!
      Superman: Because I'm "faster than a speeding bullet". I win!
      Batman: Oh shi- [Supes charges at him]
    • After Lex blows up the Senate, Superman simply says "Dang it!", goes back in time by spinning the earth backwards, takes the wheelchair hiding the bomb, and throws it up into the sky. Doing so even earns the cheers of the people who were there to protest him!
    • Superman is preparing for what he thinks is a Heroic Sacrifice which in the movie does kill him. But instead Batman picks up the kryptonite spear and kills Doomsday while he's still caught in Wonder Woman's lasso, with no heroes dying in the process. Topped off by the most badass use of HISHE Batman's catchphrase ever... to the tune of Leeroy Jenkins.
      Batman: Alright chums, let's do this! BECAUSE!!! [Superman and Lois stare in disbelief] I'M!!! [draws gun and shoots a kryptonite gas grenade at Doomsday] BATMAAAAAAAAAAN!!! [leaps forward and stabs Doomsday]
    • After being repeatedly mocked by the Avengers for its absence for years, the Justice League finally gathers at the Super Café.
  • In Captain America: Civil War:
    • Vision derails the plot right at the start by capturing Crossbones, asking "Why wouldn't I be here?"
    • The entire team minus Tony nailing how absurd and hypocritical making them sign the Sokovia Accords is, given how many more people would have died if they did nothing.
      Tony: Hey!
    • Spider-Man effortlessly webbing up all of Team Cap at the start of the airport fight.
    • Bucky fully admitting his complicity in the murder of Tony's parents, and saying he has no right to expect any forgiveness but is still sorry. This calms Tony down enough to cut Zemo out of the room he's hiding in, and bring him in.
    • And he goes even better in the "But This Is How It Really Should Have Ended" ending: When Zemo goes through the trigger phrases, he simply plugs his ears and goes "la la la la la!", resulting in the other heroes capturing him right there.
  • Five words: "Indiana Jones Kills Adolf Hitler".
  • In Suicide Squad (2016):
    • Enchantress kills Waller right at the start after she leaves that briefcase with everything she needs out in the open.
    • June similarly derails the whole story by making sure the statue Enchantress is trapped in remains intact, pointedly saying what a good archaeologist she is.
    • After Flagg discovers Harley's Explosive Leash has been disabled, Waller reminds him he still has a gun, so he just shoots her.
    • Deadshot not only simply shooting Waller as she's about to send them back to prison, but nailing her tablet with all the information on them before it even hits the ground.
    • Batman discovering the location of the Villain Pub by following the Squad there. Bet you never thought you'd see such an enticing cliffhanger ending in a series like this.
  • In Villain Pub Boss Battle:
    • Batman actually gets into the Pub and single-handedly curb-stomps such villains as Predator, Loki, General Zod and more. Eventually, he takes out the Infinity Gauntlet from Thanos, prompting him to finally spring into action.
    • Points for Palpatine as well, who successfully captures Batman by overwhelming him with various female villains, then chaining him up in the wine cellar to be eaten by Jaws. Palpatine also turns out to be Genre Savvy enough to remove his utility belt when putting him in the trap, resulting in Batman being forced to accept help from Doctor Strange and beg for the Justice League's help for the next time he tries to assault the pub.
