"Go ahead! I'll ALWAYS be the superior gamer! ALWAYS!"
And then he survives a fall down an elevator shaft. IGGINS!
- Sizz-Lorr is a walking Moment Of Awesome. Even his job title is awesome.
Zim: My apologies my FRYLORD!
- For example, his insanely awesome change into his "Frylord" suit (Complete with a multi-panel comic book screen moment), and then chasing after Zim mercilessly in one of the shows best chase scenes.
- Zim's speech to Dib in Bolognius Maximus.
"THERE IS NO CURE! And I'll never make it stop! You might as resign yourself to your meaty fate! I told you you would forever rue the day you messed with ZIM! NOW! BEGIN YOUR RUING! I'll just sit here, and watch." *Evil Laugh with "Meats of Evil" playing in the background*
- Zim signaling for GIR to fire a sandwich out of his head at Dib's head. He fires it so hard that it sends Dib flying through the air and crashing through the wall of the nearest building. Zim then laughs and walks away with GIR.
- In the unfinished episode script "The Trial", it shows tons of never-before-seen footage of Zim's past, such as him pointing out 5 "shmillion" errors in the entire collection of the Irken database 5 minutes after being born, escaping from an underground Irk, killing 2 former Tallest, and a montage of him blowing up planets. One of the planets blew up with him on it. And it was suggested that the planet exploded because he scratched his butt. The best though is the end though, when his faulty PAK is being drained of all data by the Control Brains. However, the filtered data is so completely horrible that the Control Brains malfunction and title Zim as the greatest Irken ever!
- Rodger Bumpass voicing the Control Brains. It has to be heard to be believed. He manages to give a voice so deep and ominous that you'd think it was machine altered.
- Everything that happens after Gaz gets cursed with pork tongue in "Gaz, Taster Of Pork." After seeing this evil bitch threaten to feed her brother to flesh eating dolls, her long, well-deserved Humiliation Conga is immensely cathartic.
- Dib's wonderful life of doom. He fights off a swarm of fighters in space, tears apart the Irken flagship with his bare hands, jumps off, gliding into the atmosphere all the way to the ground, riding a stream of lightning, lands perfectly, accepts the greatest person to ever live award before off-handedly blocking the debris of the flagship.
- Keef in "Bestest friend." Not only does the kid survive all the torture Zim puts him through, from electrocution to having his freaking eyes ripped out...but he never once loses his cheerful, sunny demeanour, and continues trying to make friends with Zim in an unproduced episode!
- Skoodge gets an offscreen Moment Of Awesome when he conquers an entire planet of voracious alien rodents.
- When GIR rescues Zim from the Saucer Morons. It's the only time he's been (semi) competent without being in duty mode.
- Dib is sneaking into Zim's house with an invisibility suit. GIR somehow manages to detect him and splash him with a soda, shorting out his suit and exposing him.
- A meta one for the fans: getting the main four of the voice cast as well as various production people to come to the first InvaderCon, even more for the second convention and Jhonen Vasquez himself, who hates traveling far for conventions. Icing on the cake for Invadercon II was the letter writing campaign to get the show back and a sneak preview of a fan animation team's production of Mopiness of Doom.
- In "Plague of Babies", an army of evil alien babies invade Zim's home to take his ship. Zim proceeds to stay one step ahead of them, and quickly comes up with a plan to take them down at the last moment. It's awesome for showing that when Zim isn't given time to allow his ego to interfere with his decisions, he's actually a capable and dangerous opponent.
- In the unproduced episode "The Trial", GIR conquers the earth on his own.
- Tallest Red gets his turn in "Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars," namely because the backseat driver in question is Zim. Using an override deliberately built into the Irken flagship, no less, to drag the thing to Earth through planets and a star. Why is this Red's moment? Because instead of just panicking (though he is justified in his screaming alongside everyone else on board) or prioritizing the donuts he'd been stuffing into his face-hole (like Purple, though he does order a drone to save said donuts), he's running a manual check to find the blasted problem. He not only manages this (while clinging to the keyboard, no less), he isolates the problem (Zim has latched onto the power core) and solves it by trading cores with the ship that's meanwhile been taking potshots at them. This, from one of the two figureheads who demand reports be given as puppet shows. Brilliant but Lazy, indeed.
