Awesome / Quest for Glory

  • From the first game :
    • Not many since at this point the hero is still quite inexperienced and lucks out a LOT, but being able to storm the brigand hideout has to count, since it means utterly owning a whole band of brigands and escaping alive.
    • Pulling a fast one on Baba Yaga and turning HER into a frog counts too.
  • From the second game :
    • Players aiming to become Paladins, who spare Khaveen and proceed to kick his ass, honorably.
    • In game, defeating the Elementals counts as this, and every Katta will thank you for it.
    • Defeating Ad Avis, no matter the class, is extremely satisfying.
  • From the third game :
    • Especially re-inforced in the As You Know introduction (which retcons the ending of the second), but the fighter running through the flames to knock Ad Avis to his doom is awesome.
    • The Wizard Duel (only for Wizards)
    • The last battle where the Hero outwits the Demon Wizard.
  • From the fourth game :
    • The Hero has a Determinator moment when Ad Avis gets Katrina killed, mustering his strengh to face his foe.
    • Even though the hero merely gives a push in the right direction, he still helps seal an Eldritch Abomination forever!
  • From the fifth game :
    • Going To Hell and Back for an Orphean Rescue of either Katrina or Erana. Bonus points since Word of God says the Hero was so badass he saved both.
    • In the first 4 games, there were terrible evils that had to be sealed, banished, or prevented from being released. Some, at great cost. In the final game, the Dragon of Doom is unleashed. It is said that someone must sacrifice their life to bind it again. The player can choose to take a stand. No more sacrifices. Kick the dragon's ass. And then do it again. And finally....the Dragon will be in so much pain from the asskickings you've given it; it will sacrifice ITSELF just to escape you.
