Awesome: Knights of Sidonia
- Tanikaze killing the first Gauna in 100 years.
- When two hundred and fifty seven Garde pilots broke protocol to rescue Tanikaze and Hoshijiro after the former went to rescue the latter.
- Any time Tanikaze gets to use a new weapon system, he slaughters Gauna in droves.
- Tsumugi, who actually has more kills per encounter than Tanikaze himself.
- While overshadowed by Tanikaze and Tsumugi, the other pilots definitely qualify as a Badass Crew.
- The whole S 2 E 4 episode. Tsumugi mauling dozens of Gaunas, the Sidonia army kicking ass with less casualties than it used to have, and Tanikaze using his booster as an improvised missile.
- Episode 12 in season 2, after The Cavalry arrives to destroy the countless Gauna attempting to descend on an exhausted Nagate and Tsumugi.
