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.
