Awesome: Street Fighter IV
Examples from Tournament Play should go under Pro Gaming.
- The announcement of Street Fighter IV itself was a Moment of Awesome. Fans and even the Street Fighter team thought that the game would never be made.
- ANY fight involving Dudley and Balrog.
- Guy gets quite a big one in his ending, where he faces Bison when he's carrying his friend Rose away, threatening with blowing up his aircraft if he doesn't release her. And he succeeds, making Bison back down and saving Rose from his influence.
- While pretty much all of the Ultras are awesome, whenever Fei Long's Gekirinken connects it's even better. Specially due to how it's finished... with the legendary One Inch Punch.
- The Adon vs. Sagat's Rival Intro is made of pure awesome.
- Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind:
- We have Sakura bringing Ryu back from the Satsui no Hado via a Cooldown Hug at great risk to herself and Ken briefly reaching the State of Nothingness as he fights to rescue Eliza.
- Also from the same movie, we have Ryu enter the State of Nothingness against Seth. Prior to this, Seth had been pounding Ryu into the ground and shrugging off everything he threw at him. Ryu enters the State of Nothingness, he burns Seth's arm just by grabbing it before knocking him away and defeating him with the Metsu Hadoken.
- Sagat's intro movie has him decide to get a rematch against Adon. Adon is confident he'll win, not knowing he only managed to beat him because Sagat's rage kept him from focusing on the fight. Sagat defeats him immediately with the Tiger Destruction.
- Prior to that, he knocks out a bear with a Tiger Uppercut.
- Blanka's intro, in what doubles as a Crowning Moment of Funny, has him ride a whale to get to the tournament.
- Akuma's introduction movie in Super IV: He turns a chunk of a forest into a crater by punching the ground.
- As nightmarish as Oni Akuma is, he's undeniably badass. His intro has him obliterate a tree just by exerting his ki, and his ending has him cause and jump out of a volcanic eruption without a scratch on him.
- Rolento was treated as sort of a bizarre, but funny character in Street Fighter x Tekken. But in Ultra, we get to see him in element: A competently commanding a massive military force. He even takes out Seth with a plethora of grenades and a Pre-Mortem One-Liner and all of S.I.N's secrets and technology are his for the taking! Not so funny now, is he?
- In her Ultra ending, Elena shows what the Power of Friendship can really do. We get a look at some of the fighters she's befriended, like Sakura, Blanka, El Fuerte, Dudley,...and Akuma!
- "I do not take orders from you. Now YOU listen!". Did Hugo just tell off Bison?
- Overlapping with Moral Event Horizon, we have Bison's actions in Decapre's ending. Did he just manage to force Cammy to return to Shadaloo, using Decapre as the bait?! Yes, he did. THE BASTARD.
