Awesome: Senran Kagura

  • For the Hanzo storyline; Skirting Shadows; Asuka defeating her rival Homura and then defeating the Eldritch Abomination Orochi BY HERSELF right afterwards. Goes to show how far she came from being a rookie to a Bad Ass shinobi.
  • For the Hebijo storyline; Crimson Girls; Despite being assimilated into Orochi, Homura frees herself from it's control and proceeds to free the rest of the Hebijo girls from it's influence, all while the Hanzo girls fight Orochi from outside. Their combined efforts eventually defeat Orochi.
  • Ryōna's theme, called Super★Masochism, is a surprisingly a badass metal theme. Listen for yourself!
  • The Secret Ninja Arts themselves also count as this.
  • The Anime has several:
    • Ikaruga getting Asuka to overcome her fear of frogs by utilizing her kindness and thinking the frog was about to get squished by a boulder. Asuka completely forgets her fear and pulls it to safety.
    • The reveal of why Kiriya is so highly-respected as a teacher: He knows exactly how to get the girls to learn from their mistakes and overcome their previous failures with flying colors.
    • Yagyuu and Hibari doing the impossible twice: Connecting their shinobi barriers (which are normally completely isolated) and dual-summoning their respective familiars in a combined secret ninja art.
  • The Story Mode and both of Rin and Daidouji's character final battles wherein all four of Asuka, Homura, Rin, and Daidouji get the one-on-one epic duel they'd been waiting for. Regardless of which of the four you play as, it is one of the hardest but most rewarding victories in the game.
    • Bonus points for the player for winning any of the duels without needing to rely on transforming or getting a level up to heal.
  • The Crimson Squad's story ending in Shinovi Versus as it is the only ending in the game where all four groups not only end up befriending each other, but band together to fight off an ever-increasing amount of youma.
    • Rin's character ending is similar as her epic battle against Daidouji had summoned an army of youma towards them. They keep Kiriya out of the battle with their barrier and prepare to take on the youma as if their own duel had just been the warm-up. This is also one for Rin herself as she shows no fear or hesitation given she was told the trauma of her first encounter with a youma would keep her off the front lines for the rest of her life.
  • The final battle of Shinovi Versus. While the ending of Burst had a Giant Space Flea from Nowhere, what does Shinovi Versus give you after beating all 4 story lines? A one-on-one fight, Asuka Vs Homura. You get to pick who to fight as, and despite the other girl being tough as hell, it still manages to be a [[Best Boss Ever.]] Not to mention you have the main theme from Skirting Shadows or Crimson Girls, depending on who you choose.
