Awesome: Kamen Rider Ryuki

  • In the non-canon 13 Riders Special, when Knight sacrifices himself by jumping in the way of Verde's Final Vent, instead of lying down and dying, he immediately gets back up and Final Vents him right back. He is clearly injured the whole time, and dies soon after.
    • Which is then followed by A now deck-less Shinji picking up the now user-less Knight deck, using it (going straight into survive in the process) and then either getting into a massive rider battle royale (which is basically everyone unloading their Final Vents onto him, or destroying the source of Mirror World, escaping in the process, depending on which of the Multiple Endings you go by.
  • When Shinji finally gets to be the cool one for the first time, saving an injured Ren from Volcancer.
  • When Knight and Ryuki first activate their Survive cards.
    Shinji: I will definitely not die! Once you take a life... You can never go back!
  • The first time we saw Dragredder turn into Dragranzer, and then into the most awesome Cool Bike ever.
  • Ryuki Vs. Ryuga. No flashy moves or the usual Toku camp. It was just Shinji against his copy who was a pale imitation of the real thing, in a brutal fistfight. It ends when Shinji, having been punched all the way back to the building, gives a wordless challenge by simply drawing the only card in the entire fight: The Final Vent. Ryuga responds to his challenge to settle once and for all who the real one is, ending with a Rider Kick showdown that ends with Shinji slamming Ryuga to his death.
  • "Punch where there's Golden Feathers": Shinji just relived the entirety of the Rider War, unable to do anything to change it. On the last day, he fills his entire room with post-it notes to well, Punch where there's Golden Feathers, all to make one big point.
    • And there's Odin's reaction. While the punch didn't hurt him, it did manage to shock him shock him since he never expected Shinji to know where he'd teleport. And there's the fact that he actually hit him since Odin's Teleport Spam meant he's hit a total of three times in the main series.
  • Episode 40. A 7-way free from all, from Knight vs. Alternative Zero on a Final Vent clash, to Ouja vs Tiger, and ends with with Imperer's monsters joining the fight and Zolda, and Survive Mode Ryuki. Truly awesome.
  • Combined with Tear Jerker, Shinji's final stand against the Mirror Monsters in episode 49. Wounded by a Mirror Monster while protecting a little girl, Shinji still musters up the strength to fight. He and Ren manage to kill several monsters before Shinji gets disarmed, and even then he kills some more with his Rider Kick. Once they go into Survive Form and unleash their Final Vents, they manage to destroy every single monster rampaging through the city streets. And epic last stand for a noble Rider.
