Awesome / Nintendo Wars

  • Black Hole Rising packs a number in:
    • Tanks!!!: Grit explaining to Adder that yes, he isn't particularly loyal to Blue Moon and yes, he doesn't care much about what land belongs to which country. But the destruction of cities and killing of civilians is unforgivable.
    • Duty and Honour: Black Hole has set up laser cannons around several strategically unimportant Yellow Comet cities which are under siege. Kanbei knows it's a trap, but goes in anyway because it is his duty to protect the people of Yellow Comet.
    COs don't sit idly by and watch their people be destroyed! Even if it's a trap. Even if it's strategically unimportant.
    • Lash also gets a pretty epic Not So Different "The Reason You Suck" Speech towards Sonja in "A Mirror Darkly" after her defeat, when she accuses Sonja of also treating war like a game and being every bit the war-loving psychopath she is. In any other game this sort of accusation would be totally meaningless, but since this is Advance Wars, she's totally right, and Lash is in fact the only character who isn't in denial about it.
  • Hawke or Jake shooting Von Bolt's chair in Dual Strike, forcing him to live out the rest of his life under his own power... which probably won't be very long. Jake's line after doing so is pretty good:
    You don't get to die while the rest of us clean up your mess!
  • Days of Ruin has several as well:
