Awesome / Resident Evil

This page is for awesome moments from the first game only.
  • The fact that some of the S.T.A.R.S. members even survived the night is awesome in itself. You've gotta give props to people who can take on giant zombified sharks, snakes, plants, clawed frogs, and a backstabbing teammate...and survive.
  • From the GameCube remake, the Tyrant of all things can potentially have a Moment of Awesome. At the end of the final battle, Brad Vickers throw you a rocket launcher, and you fire it to destroy the Tyrant once and for all. Some of the time. The rest of the time, when a rocket is fired at it, the Tyrant backhands it away, casually. This is a major Oh Crap! moment for players.
  • Badass zombie kills can be this. For example, you enter the hallway after you meet the first zombie. You can see the zombie standing in the shadows all the way down at the other end. You shoot at it with your basic weapon, and by luck on first shot, shoot it's head clean off. This is one of the most satisfying feelings in the game.
  • If you poison Plant 42 as Jill, it still has the wherewithal to attack you, so who comes to the rescue? Barry, with a flamethrower. Being picked up and shaken around by the plant proves to be a mild inconvenience for him at worst.
