* The game itself could be called a huge CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Banpresto/Bandai-Namco. Why? They actually fixed the reviled show that is ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Gundam SEED Destiny]]'' and making the story and characterization of the show actually ''make sense''. Greatest. FixFic. EVER.
** To the point where, even Creator/KenichiSuzumura (the voice of ''Destiny'''s devisive progatonist Shinn Asuka) has said on-record that he prefers the ''SRWZ'' version of the story and his character to the anime version.
* The game resolves the plot of ''Anime/TheBigO'', which didn't get a proper closure in its original series, and ''Anime/SpaceWarriorBaldios'', which gets its DownerEnding that [[CutShort was the result of the anime getting cut short]] fixed.
* The [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wz_ejDRRPxE&NR=1&fmt=18 ZAFT vs. ZEUTH]]]] scenario, built up for the entire first act of ''Z'', while making the scenario completely controllable by the player (resulting in a very high {{HSQ}} when the player realizes this is ''actually going to happen'' '''and''' ''it's fully playable'').
** Not only that, but it involves battles such as Minerva vs. Archangel, ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' vs. ''Anime/EurekaSeven'', ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' vs. ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]'', ''Anime/MazingerZ'' vs. ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'', ''[[{{Anime/Zambot3}} Zambot 3]]'' vs. ''[[Anime/SpaceWarriorBaldios Baldios]]'', ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' vs. ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'', ''Anime/{{Gravion}}'' vs. ''Anime/TheBigO'', and many, many more. '''OH. YEAH.'''
* Despite coming off as a sadist, the entrance of ''SRW Z's'' Asakim Dowan is pretty awesome, perhaps on the context on how his attack is animated. He cuts his enemy's mecha (in this case Denzel, Setsuko's superior), then nonchalantly PUSHES the upper half of the mecha apart of the lower half. It's really depraved, but when you learn that [[spoiler:you CAN use him in Rand's route, and do this to various enemies, and even the FINAL BOSS]], you get some sort of awesome feel on him...

[[folder:Second Super Robot Wars Z: Hakai-Hen]]
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y47snC3G6Iw Scenario 18-A]] of the third route split, during a concert in the ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' storyline, [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Sheryl Nome]] sings "Iteza Gogo Kuji Don't be late", which pumps up ZEXIS so much all allied pilots' Will instantly shoot to 130. After defeating the initial enemies, [[Anime/ShinMazinger Baron Ashura]] arrives with some [[MechaMooks Mechanical]] [[MonsterOfTheWeek Beasts]]; this causes [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Ranka Lee]] to take the stage and sing her song "What 'bout my star?", pumping [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Simon and Kamina]] up even further, to the point where the latter debuts the Gurren Lagann's most famous attack, the "Giga Drill Break", nearly obliterating the Mechanical Beast Toros D-7 with it.
* Fans have been screaming for Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms to appear for years, and its introduction doesn't disappoint. It starts with eternal badass [[TheStoic Chirico Cuvie]] going up against [[AcePilot Kallen Kozuki]] from ''Anime/CodeGeass''. She's in an actual Knightmare with weapons and harkens, while [[WithThisHerring he's in a gimped Scopedog with no weapons]]. He STILL wins. Then they get double crossed, then Kallen teams up with him to mess all of them up. On a special note, they form a HeterosexualLifePartners relationship that lasts through all of the games because of this.
* The ''KICK-ASS'' introduction to the Getter Robo from Armageddon. It starts off with the team all surrounded by Invaders and seemingly impossible odds are stacked up against them....and then you hear the remastered version of HEATS and three beautiful words. [[Manga/GetterRobo CHANGE GETTER 1!]] The Invaders don't last long after that.
* [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Asakim Dowin]] spends the first half of the game trying to do to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Crowe Broust]] what he did to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Rand Travis and Setsuko Ohara]]. Before he gets the chance, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Amuro Ray]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8qQ1kCfyEk who was transported into the ZEXIS world appears and shoots at Asakim's Shurouga]], screwing over his plan to betray Crowe right there. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, this doesn't mean things don't go his way in the end]].
* [[Anime/{{Daitarn3}} Banjou Haran]], with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1lzW2zP71E his heartfelt declaration that he would never forgive anyone who would steal the sun from the people]], becomes the only member of ZEXIS to succeed in ''frightening'' [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lordgenome]].
---> '''Lordgenome''': This man... the essence of the sun! Strength... spirit... he surpasses all others!
* When [[Anime/GodMars Rose]] tries to kill [[Anime/GodMars Takeru]], ZEXIS appears and ruins their day in separate teams. From the [[Anime/ShinMazinger Kurogane House]], to the Hotblooded members (such as the [[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Team]] and Kamina), to the snipers ([[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Yoko]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Lockon Stratos]], [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Mikhail Blanc]] and [[Anime/OvermanKingGainer Gain Bijou]]), and ending with [[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS Chirico Cuvie]] shooting down their escape ship with his handgun.
** [[Manga/GetterRobo Hayato Jin]] even gets a bit of a MythologyGag[=/=]ShoutOut in this scene, where he starts yelling "Eyes! Ears! Nose!", a reference to a scene in the original ''Manga/GetterRobo'' manga.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWEjf2TvO_s Dancouga Nova is suddenly attacked from behind by two monsters]]; in that very moment, [[Anime/{{Dancougar}} Shinobu Fujiwara and the Final Dancouga]] arrive and intervene, instantly killing the beasts and giving their enemy target a demonstration of the "[[{{BFS}} Dankuu Ken]]". Bonus points Shinobu and the excellent animation.
* Simon and the Getter Team getting their {{Midseason Upgrade}}s in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dp0XKOR5xR4 scenario 40]]. This event also allows [[Manga/GetterRobo Musashi Tomoe]] the chance to pilot the Shin Getter-3, as this has never happened in the 20 years of the franchise (Musashi never gets to use the Shin Getter since he must get KilledOffForReal so [[Manga/GetterRobo Benkei Kuruma]] can replace him).
* [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Elgan Laudic]], a supporter of ZEXIS who [[spoiler:[[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld has lived for over 200 years]] and was a friend of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Aeolia Schenberg]], gets one when he breaks into an office room in New York and shoots and kills [[Manga/GetterRobo Stinger and Cohen]] (of course, since they're [[Manga/GetterRobo Invaders]] in disguise, mere bullets weren't enough)]].

[[folder:Second Super Robot Wars Z: Saisei-Hen]]
* In one of the early scenarios, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Setsuna F. Seiei in the broken down Gundam Exia]] goes up against multiple [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 A-LAWS]] and [[Anime/CodeGeass Suzaku Kururugi]] single-handedly. After Suzaku critically disables the Exia, things look bleak until ZEXIS arrives, and Setsuna relaunches in the brand new 00 Gundam. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6C9WGVMG8l8 Poor Suzaku has nothing on the 00's "Twin Drive System"]].
* [[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch Lamperouge]] gets one, not as Zero, but as himself as a normal student. Terrorists have a large portion of the student body held hostage, during the [[Anime/CodeGeass heart hat event]], along with Lelouch. What does he do? Distract them long enough for everyone to get away, leaving him alone with a bunch of angry terrorists. He then gets saved when several members of ZEXIS burst in from the window.
** In another moment, this time as Zero, [[spoiler:when [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Esther Elhaas]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFiiuEPnG1Y is turned into a Dimensional Beast]], Lelouch takes it upon himself to stop her (either launching from the [[Anime/CodeGeass Ikaruga]] if he is not deployed or moving himself in Esther's path if he is deployed in the [[Anime/CodeGeass Shinkirou]]), placing a Geass command on her to stop attacking. Made more awesome because Lelouch didn't even think of what he was doing; he's pretty much just trying to stop something over fifty times heavier than him from hurting his allies and friends, and is lucky enough to accidentally Geass her successfully]].
* [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Carlos Axion, Jr.]] takes it upon himself to [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62fusuNUkcg seal a ZONE with a new device]] invented by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Traiya Scott]], despite not having a Sphere or being a combat pilot]].
* Elgan gets another one: [[spoiler:since he is the AlternateUniverse version of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ The Edel Bernal]], he fears he may lose control like his EvilCounterpart did upon learning about the Black Knowledge, thus placed a clause in the Earth Federation's charter when he was the Secretary-General of the United Nations. That clause states no matter what the Federation does, ZEXIS will have supreme authority to police the Earth if it is reformed. Neither the A-LAWS or [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Organization of Zodiac]] can overrule this. The best of this is he did this while he was being manipulated by [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Ribbons Almark]]]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikGzo-L9_tw The debut]] of [[Anime/{{Macross 7}} Dynamite Explosion]] in scenario 37. Not only does it drive [[Characters/SuperRobotwarsZ Aim Liard]] away, but it also sends a wave of [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Vajra]] retreating. ZEXIS is surprised by this turn of events (as they were surrounded by the Vajra and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Mobile Dolls]]) and applauds the talents of [[Anime/{{Macross 7}} Basara Nekki]]. To top it off, Basara manages to emotionally move Chirico Cuvie, who '''SMILES''' in response to the song.
* Any interaraction between Amuro Ray [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 and the Innovades]]. Banpresto, being themselves big fans of Amuro, play the ActorAllusion tropes from the ''Gundam 00'' plot UpToEleven by having him in constant, direct argument with Ribbons and the Innovades, going from an entire scenario prologue worth of their debating about Ribbons' plans to the point where [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Healing Care]] ends up jealous and flat out accuses [[HoYay Amuro of flirting with Ribbons]]. Two scenarios feature the best moments of their conversations: [[http://www.saint-ism.com/lets-play-super-robot-wars-z2-saisei-hen/stage-32-assault-on-memento-mori/ Scenario 32 "Assault on Memento Mori"]], where Amuro returns with the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Nu Gundam]] to aid in the fight with the Innovades, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rexyb5ewel8&feature=related Scenario 56 "Beyond"]] which features the final battle from ''Gundam 00'', and both Amuro and Ribbons do battle in their respective Gundams [[TalkingToHimself with another load of interesting quotes]].
---> '''Amuro''': Ribbons! You and I have nothing in common!
---> '''Ribbons''': Amuro Ray, THIS is the difference between our powers!
* When [[Anime/CodeGeass Schneizel el Britannia]] reveals Zero's identity, the [[Anime/CodeGeass Black Knights]] are considerably concerned with the revelation. [[spoiler:Granted, they just witnessed Suzaku [[NukeEm nuke Tokyo with FLEIJA]] and are furious at Zero]]. Of all the people to try and reason with the Black Knights, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Chang Wufei]] is the most vocal, calling out the stupidity of [[Anime/CodeGeass Ohgi Kaname]] and the other Black Knights. He goes on to list all of the things Zero has promised to do and followed up on, including the fact that Zero having the power of Geass is irrelevant, given that half of ZEXIS possess supernatural powers of their own. Furthermore, Wufei reminds Ohgi and the others that Zero is the supreme commander of ZEXIS, meaning if the Black Knights want to betray Lelouch, they have to win over their ZEXIS colleagues (who are doubtful of Schneizel's intentions). Wufei adds that they're obviously confused and emotional following the nuking and are just looking for a convenient scapegoat, which Schneizel gladly provided with his accusations. He rounds it out by saying if the Black Knights want to fulfill their dream, Zero is their best bet to achieving it. Sadly, this piece of dialogue only occurs in the normal route path where the Black Knights go ahead and betray Lelouch, but considering Wufei is normally a ButtMonkey in the franchise, particularly his frequency of joining enemy factions as per ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz'', this is without a doubt the single greatest thing he's done yet (until ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL''). Also doubles as ShownTheirWork for Banpresto.[[note]]In the backstory of the ''Gundam Wing'' manga ''Episode Zero'', Wufei was more of a scholar than a fighter. It was his wife's death that caused him to take up arms against OZ.[[/note]]
** Note the above paragraph mentions this scene only triggers in the normal route. [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbMxufJKDqo Well, if you fulfilled the correct requirements]], once you get to the point of Schneizel's reveal, it's up to the player to decide whether or not ZEXIS rebuffs Schneizel and continues to trust Zero! Basically, Banpresto pulled another ''Gundam Seed Destiny'' level of FixFic and the biggest WTF moment of ''Code Geass'' can be completely averted]]!
* [[Manga/GetterRobo Ryouma Nagare]], Hayato and Benkei are trapped in the MindRape dimension made by the [[Manga/GetterRobo Shin Dragon]] and forced to confront their sins ([[BusCrash Musashi is confirmed to have died off-screen]]). With the help of [[Manga/GetterRobo Michiru Saotome]], they [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vr8Q9G-0xEE escape]] being finished off by [[Manga/GetterRobo Professor Saotome]]. The Invaders wonder aloud what could be interfering with the space that they created whe both Professor Saotome and [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Anti-Spiral!Nia]] suddenly scowl with hatred at the [[Anime/GenesisOfAquarion Aquarion]].
--> '''[[Anime/GenesisOfAquarion Apollo(nius)]]''': "Ba'al... you really are beasts. You who cannot fathom the love and compassion of Man do not deserve to exist beneath the Sun. Ba'al, the Mechanical Angel Aquarion hereby refutes your existence! Behold! The power of mankind... and the power of life!"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f8VysM-m9U Cue the Aquarion manifesting the true Wings of the Sun]] and destroy's Professor Saotome's Metal Beast Dragon upside the head with the Infinite Sword. Of note is this is the first time the Aquarion goes into its [[GoldenSuperMode full-winged deity mode]]. It didn't even do this when it last summoned the sword in ''Z'', ''at the climax of its own plot''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMKO3G0c0mA&feature=g-crec Scenario 54]], full stop. ZEXIS is facing Nia in her [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Anti-Spiral]] unit and things are looking grim, as she's about to drop the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Cathedral Lazengann]] on Earth when suddenly [[spoiler:the Shin Dragon punches a hole through space/time and not only does it appear next to Nia, but it brings along some allies you thought sacrificed themselves earlier in the game. That's right, folks: [[TheBusCameBack Rand and Setsuko are back]]]]!
** The IF route version is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sfDRhM0Hnc even better]]: Nia's about to drop the moon, but [[Anime/EurekaSeven Holland Novak]] (who's been absent all game) appears. Not much help, except Holland can't even finish his BigDamnHeroes speech before [[Anime/CodeGeass Gino Weinburg and Anya Alstreim]] appear as friendly reinforcements, deciding they'll stick with their friend Suzaku after all. Next is [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Ozma Lee and Luca Angelloni]], finally catching up with the Frontier fleet after their adventures looking for Space Whales. Finally, [[spoiler:the Shin Dragon arrives with Rand and Setsuko in tow]]. That's four simultaneous BigDamnHeroes at once.

[[folder:Third Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-Hen]]
* Count Brocken has taken Suzune and several of Kaname's classmates hostage inside a Mechanical Beast. Taunting Kouji, Brocken actually gives away the {{Robeast}}'s weakpoint(s), laughing that Mazinger Z's weapons are too clumsy to hit them. Unfortunately for Brocken, [[FriendlySniper Kurz and Michael]] are both on the scene, and easily hit the targets.
* As per ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'', [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Banagher Links]] loses control when the titular machine's [[SuperMode NT-D Mode]] is activated. Fortunately, [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille Bidan]] is around to disable the Unicorn. The fact [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Neo Zeon]] aces are rushing to take Banagher away, yet have a tough time targeting Kamille while he's piloting a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn ReZel]] (''not'' his [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]) tells us just strong he is.
* [[https://youtu.be/FtW3E7ATei0?t=28m35s The Axis ColonyDrop event]] from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' is handled differently compared to previous [=SRW=] outings. As the asteroid begins its descent, Z-BLUE attempts to push it away, with Kamille and Banagher activating the Zeta and Unicorn's respective Biosensor and Psycoframe systems, focusing on human will. This leads to several scenes showing Z-BLUE's non-combatant allies on the planet realizing what's happening in space, sending their desires to them. As Banagher begins to falter under the pressure, the rest of Z-BLUE do what they can to support each other: [[Anime/AquarionEvol Amata Sora]] and [[Anime/{{Gunbuster}} Noriko Takaya]] hold onto the Gundams, [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Shinji Ikari]], [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Sôsuke Sagara]] and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Hibiki Kamishiro]] protects them with their units' barriers, and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero Yuy]] and [[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch vi Britannia]] use the ZERO and Druid Systems in the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz Wing Gundam Zero Custom]] and Shinkirou, respectively, to coordinate everything. TrueCompanions, indeed.
** Worth noting is ''Jigoku-hen'' plays with the event as much as possible, [[spoiler:as [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char Aznable]] '''never intended to drop Axis'''; [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Full Frontal]] is the one doing it. Essentially, Char fooled the entire Neo Zeon faction into taking advantage of the asteroid so he could use it as a Singularity Point in an attempt to fix the dimensional disruptions occurring in the Earth Sphere and break them free of the [[TimeStandsStill Time Prison]]. Sure, this setup counts as {{Superdickery}}, but the fact Char doesn't neglect what he said in ''Z'' regarding not allowing the Black History from occurring is a sign his CharacterDevelopment is consistent and not {{Retcon}}ned by the events of ''Char's Counterattack'']].
*** Taken to further heights as the ColonyDrop continues. [[spoiler:Char reveals his XanatosGambit: in the event Axis cannot be physically stopped by Z-BLUE, he had [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Athrun Zala and Lunamaria Hawke]] build devices fitted with [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 GN Drives]] across the globe and link them together via the Quantum System in order draw on the willpower of all mankind as a physical force, holding Axis back long enough for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Traiya Scott]] to activate a mechanism involving [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Fold Quartz Crystals]], Z-Chips and the remains of the Insaraum ZONE System to teleport the asteroid to a safe location]]. It works.
*** As a final bit, in ''Char's Counterattack'', just before the Psycoframe in the Nu Gundam overloads, Char incredulously wonders "Is this the light of the human heart?" [[spoiler:In ''Jigoku-hen'', this very question becomes a MeaningfulEcho, a rallying cry for Z-BLUE, with Char answering his own question as "the power of hope for the future"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxqPSOVwta0 The Invaders reappear]] in ''Jigoku-hen'' out of blue, taking Ryouma by surprise and eating the [[Manga/GetterRobo Black Getter]]. Ryouma is taken to a point between dimensions, the same place seen in the last episode of ''[[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Robo Armageddon]]'', and greeted by another incarnation of himself, who tells him the truth about fighting the Invaders for eternity. Reinvigorated, Ryouma reawakens, bursts out of the Invader's stomach ready to fight them all; at the same time, Hayato and Benkei arrive with the Shin Getter Robo in tow.
* As a nod to when Mazinkaiser was formed when Getter Robo blasted Mazinger Z with Getter Rays, [[https://youtu.be/eUqZ-btufas?t=288 Getter Robo blasts the Chouginga Dai-Gurren with Getter Rays to jumpstart its transformation into Chouginga Gurren Lagann]]
* Baron Ashura is DrivenToSuicide and the ''Shin Mazinger'' ending is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEge15nQHa8 re-enacted.]] [[Anime/ShinMazinger Kouji Kabuto]] becomes slim pickings for [[Anime/ShinMazinger The Emperor of Darkness]] as the latter decimates the Mazinger, but Kouji gives one last effort with a Big Bang Punch. It doesn't work and the God Scrander is destroyed, with the Mazinger falling and powering down. [[spoiler:Cue [[Anime/ShinMazinger Zeus]] appearing to give Kouji a hand]].
* [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Leonard Testarossa]] orders multiple Neo Zeon mobile suits to surround the ''[[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Tuatha de Danaan]]'', but Z-BLUE has prepared a contingency in the event this occurs. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Un_tlShv4JE The battleship suddenly lifts off from sea and launches into outer space.]] That's right: Banpresto goes ahead and turns the ''Tuatha de Danaan'' into a '''flight-capable, space-faring battleship'''.
* A [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Plan-1051 Behemoth]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFiUhmrx_XY appears and attacks]] Heero and Sousuke. Despite its [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Lambda Driver]], [[Anime/DaiGuard Shunsuke Akagi]] wrestles the HumongousMecha with his Dai-Guard to the ground through sheer determination, giving the former two enough time to get back to their respective mecha.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPX32tDFlc4 As a TakeThat, the Anti-Spiral yells at Shinji]], when he says he isn't going to listen to what the Anti-Spiral has to say, that Shinji is averting his eyes from reality. Shinji retorts that Anti-Spiral is the one doing that and tells ''him'' he shouldn't run away.
* The final DLC side stage. Ultimate Battle. In the short while before going to face the Anti Spiral, AG says he's compiled a final training program for everyone to get ready for the battle. It turns to be your entire roster minus secret characters, with Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann as the battleship...vs EVERY major boss character not named Anti Spiral,(except Big Venus because she instakills her opponents which wouldn't be fair, or Char, because he's in your roster at that point). Gadlight, Frontal, Haman, Hades, Izumo and Mikage, Gauron, etc. With lessened HP to keep things balanced. And everyone starts at 130 will. Go nuts. Not only is it a cool fight, but gamewise it also means you can use the strongest characters and fight the final bosses whenever you feel like without having to replay the whole story. If any DLC is worth it, it's this.
* If the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3ki5CHpwy0 Unit 03 debacle]] happens, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18434helgOs Shinji plans to attack Nerv HQ as in the film.]] Whereas some of your more lawful members try to talk him out of it while others think that's too excessive even for Gendo, Ryouma essentially says "Let him kill the bastard." and lets him go on his way and is surprisingly enough backed up by Roger Smith, who while not one to endorse needless violence has decided Gendo is no longer to be trusted.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4RWSTHPPEs Izumo decides Lacus Clyne is the best Rare Igura to save Altair.]] When he announces this Kira goes nuts and wrecks his Ahura Gnis despite Izumo easily defeating the Aquarion Evol. This is alot more impressive when you realize that Izumo's unit can [[AttackReflector canonically absorb and reflect all ranged firepower and beam energy]] ([[GameplayAndStorySegregation though this isn't an ability it has in game]]) which means Kira's seemingly beating Izumo up purely with Strike Freedom's rather basic melee arsenal despite Altair units being at least 3 times as large as a Mobile Suit.
** This partially serves as a CallBack to Kira's more aggressive days back in ''Gundam SEED'', where he often made use of the Aile Strike's beam sabers. Shinn's shocked by Kira showing such a side (being used to his GSD attitude).
* [[https://youtu.be/A90wx3tNBJ8 Stage 58: The Quarreling Twins]] has several. [[spoiler: For one, it is about [[ClimaxBoss Gadlight's]] last stand where he pincers Z-BLUE between his troops and a hoard of Space Monsters and Invaders. Simon as response to this summons the Cathedral Terra, and tries to combine with it. Gadlight tries to prevent this but Ryouma helps Simon by shooting a Getter Beam at him, giving Simon enough of a boost to create the Chouginga Gurren Lagann and one shot a Space Monster causing Gadlight to have a VillainousBreakdown. Later on in the mission where Hibiki's Genion shuts down before being able to finish Gadlight, Advent purposefully provokes Gadlight into killing him to break Gadlight's control over the Sphere, which allows Hibiki, out of his sheer rage and determination following Advent's death, to take the Sphere as his own and finish Gadlight with his new ultimate attack]].
* [[https://youtu.be/HUsv4lAu1m0?t=9m14s The final stage]], with the glory that is the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The fact that this thing is playable is amazing enough, but [[spoiler: the rest of Z-Blue go size infinity to join it in kicking Anti-Spiral ass]].

[[folder:Third Super Robot Wars Z: Tengoku-Hen]]
* Berserk [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji]] makes an appearance in this game. No, we don't mean a Berserk Unit 01 from the original series; We're talking about the [[https://youtu.be/PziQWrwmIo4?t=18m19s utterly terrifying Shinji]] from the end of [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance]] when he went absolutely [[RageBreakingPoint apeshit]] against [[spoiler: the 14th angel]], [[GlowingEyesOfDoom Blood-red eyes]] and all.
* [[https://youtu.be/8wst3KQ6-7M?t=2m29s Girtar sics a bunch of bioroids on the team. Chirico destroys them with his gun. When Girtar demands to know how he took them down with "just a handgun", Chirico clarifies that it's an Armour Magnum.]]
* [[https://youtu.be/sznfTCRopnM?t=28m28s Sousuke uses Chirico's Armour Magnum]] to take out Leonard's Λ Driver.
* Shinji shows up to help when you're fighting Amalgam and everybody goes "how did you get permission from Gendou?" and Shinji just goes "I argued with him until he gave up and gave me the OK."
* Everybody applauds Hibiki for overcoming the Sphere's curse, and he thanks Land for the help. Mer notices that Land is bleeding after taking that last hit from Straus, and Land asks her if she's alright. Because what hurts him most of all isn't wounds of the heart or the body, but the thought of her getting hurt. And he feels a bit pathetic about it, but ever since they started fighting on the Green Earth he's been worried. He still doesn't know what that anxiety is about, but that he can't get the idea out of his head that the world's coming to an end. The same anxiety that Hibiki's been feeling. But Land says that as long as he's got Mer's smile, he'll endure any pain. Land flashes the Heat Smile, and for once nobody makes fun of it. Everybody begins chanting "The Heat" and Land gets pumped up. Everybody here is doing everything they can to live, and he's not going to sit back and let Sidereal ruin that. He tells Straus that he definitely felt that last one, and now that Hibiki's shown his strength, it's his turn. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bok5SVrrjqQ He unleashes The Heat Crusher on the bridge of the Pleiades Taura]].
** Shinji can feel Land's heat boiling inside of him, and Kaworu comments that he and his power to withstand pain are wonderful. Everybody can feel a warmth flowing into them, and Roger surmises that Land has finally reached the Third Stage and achieved his Sphere Act. Land asks Straus how he liked that one, and Straus replies through his smashed helmet that he's gonna feel that one in the morning. His armour, smashed to bits, falls to the floor. And he, is [[spoiler:revealed to be a she, an extremely buxom blonde]]. [[https://youtu.be/s7c4lze9cIg?t=4m13s And the unarmored Straus's going to pay back from that last hit.]]
** [[spoiler:She]] lands a terrific hit on Land, and commends him for remaining standing after taking it. Straus reintroduces [[spoiler:herself by her]] full name and title: [[spoiler:Elunaruna Banstraus]], leader of the galaxy's strongest force Hyades and commander-in-chief of the Gaia Empire.
* Hibiki starts succumbing to the Twins' curse again, to Barbiel's amusement. He's trapped between the hope of saving his loved one and the despair of possibly [[spoiler:dying by her hand]], and Barbiel notes dryly that Hibiki appears to have been born under an ill-fated star to be [[spoiler:constantly betrayed by the people he loves]]. Barbiel tells [[spoiler:Ambriel]] to hurry up and throw Hibiki out of the cockpit, but she tells him not to give her orders. Crow decides to take this opportunity to rush to Hibiki's aid, but Shikuu saw through that plan and intercepts him. Shikuu states that this will be a fine opportunity to rid himself of the Swaying Scales for good. Crow asks if it's the same as Setsuko and Barbiel, an issue of Sphere compatibility.
-->"It has nothing to do with Spheres. I simply dislike you."
** Crow praises Shikuu for finally expressing some kind of emotion. Barbiel yells for Shikuu to hurry up, but it's too late. [[spoiler:Advent]] arrives on the scene, to save Hibiki. Crow tells [[spoiler:Advent]] to keep away, that they don't need his help. The Swaying Scales finally awakens, and Crow apologises saying that it's really not his style for others to protect him. He intends to move forward under his own power. Shikuu resentfully states that he finds Crow's strong will disturbs him, but not perhaps as much as what comes next.
** [[https://youtu.be/ldCOv9mDaCU?t=2m19s Crow hits the Shiseiten with the Unbreakable Fulcrum]], and Shikuu reacts with outright shock for the first time. Crow's Sphere Act resonates through the area, and Hibiki starts to come around as a result.
* [[https://youtu.be/lokp5SkFQHE?t=28m58s Stage 50 has one where Graham]], if the player saves him, is about to perform his HeroicSacrifice as seen in the movie till both Setsuna and Heero stop him from doing that. Because both the Zero System and the Twin Drive System are supposed to be paired with each other as noted by the scientists in Z2, both [[BashBrothers Heero and Setsuna]] proceed to dive towards the ELS base with Heero supporting Setsuna even when influenced by the ELS.
* [[spoiler:Kamina]] returned as a [[https://youtu.be/SLtmowOfKxE?t=4m16s spirit]] to fight alongside Simon and Z-Blue in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
* When the entire playable cast attains [[spoiler: "Shinka".]] Let's just say [[https://youtu.be/d2RLWa6YPyQ?t=6m3s awesomeness ensues]].

* [[http://www.saint-ism.com/lets-play-super-robot-wars-z2-saisei-hen/ NeoSaint]] has a LetsPlay for ''Saisei-hen'' with a number of "Arranged Battles": movies made by editing the attack animations into coherent battle scenes. They [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1wy_Kc0yTE begin]] with simple beatdowns on the bosses, but as the game progresses, get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfNb0vU6cj0 better]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nm4BYzUajek more detailed]], telling the story of each battle in their own way. By the time the ''Anime/ShinMazinger'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9a0uEVqGHk battle]] against [[Anime/ShinMazinger Dr. Hell]], he's actually hacking the game and re-editing the game map to make attacks that are impossible to perform in the game (such as [[Anime/{{Gigantor}} Tetsujin #28]] and Anime/DaiGuard ''[[CatchAndReturn throwing]]'' Missile Mechanical Beasts back at the villains). The finale is particularly epic, with the Rocket Punch 10'''2''' Rapid fists (Dancougar Nova and the [[Anime/{{Gravion}} Sol Gravion]] get their fists in edgewise), ending with a "Big Bang Punch"-"Giga Drill Break" cross-up.
** He outdid himself (by his own admission) for the final battle of ''Code Geass'': in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4VS5vqklMU&feature=plcp Battle of Mt. Fuji]], [[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms Armored Troopers]] take the land battle while the [[Anime/CodeGeass Knights of the Round]] head to the skies. Suzaku, [[Anime/CodeGeass Rolo Lamperouge]] and Kallen vs. [[Anime/CodeGeass Bismarck Waldstein]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Kira Yamato]] vs. [[ActorAllusion Gino]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Tieria Erde]] vs [[WaveMotionGun Anya]], and an awesome SuperRobot ass-whuppin to the tune of ''Series/TheATeam''.
*** Best of all, Lelouch himself is leading the charge from the [[ActorAllusion Sol Gravion]]!
*** The ''Gundam 00'' ending [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAoxmV8NAEY features nearly every single Gundam unit, each with some screen time and it all culminates in Ribbons vs. Amuro and Setsuna, with two endings:]] [[spoiler:either Ribbons '''hijacks the Nu Gundam''', forcing Setsuna and Amuro to take him on in the Exia and the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Tallgeese]] or [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Celestial Being]] keeps him from getting away at all and takes him down with the Dancougar Nova]]. The later is even a bit of a CrowningMomentOfFunny due to how unexpected it was for Ribbons.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/zxyu0369 Zxyu0369]] also makes good arrangements, the best one being [[Anime/CodeGeass Zero]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YIeYLq21xw&feature=plcp Requiem]], with ZEXIS vs Emperor Lelouch vi Britannia. Knowing the characters, the battle greatly delivers on tension and drama, as both sides are fighting each other for peace through different ideals and methods. Duels include Kallen vs. Suzaku, Heero Yuy vs. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Zechs Marquise]], Setsuna vs. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Mr. Bushido]], and ultimately many members of ZEXIS against Lelouch himself.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0zSmfP5hbQ "Flash!! The End of Evolution!]]" is another fantastic battle that focuses on ZEXIS against the Invaders. Whether it be in the middle of the video where Kira, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Athrun Zala]], and Simon among others blasting the hell out of the Invader armies or the end of the battle where Athrun, the Big O, [[Anime/{{Gravion}} God Gravion]], and the Getter Team are charging and unleashing their strongest attacks against the boss, utterly decimating it, everything is done to the tune of "[[Manga/GetterRobo HE]][[CrowningMusicOfAwesome ATS]]".
* With ''Jigoku-hen'' announced, ''Getter Robo Armageddon'', ''Anime/{{Gunbuster}}'' and ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' will be in the same game, making this potentially one of the most HotBlooded [=SRW=] installments...at least until other series are included in the yet-to-be-released ''Jigoku-hen'' sequel.
** Double for Creator/StudioGainax fans, as this will be the first time the latter two are sharing the same game with their fellow stablemate ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' in its ''Anime/{{Rebuild|OfEvangelion}}'' iteration. Naturally, some fans are proclaiming this the "second [[FanNickname Holy Trinity]]".
** The actual [[http://youtu.be/0gDzcsn2Nc4?t=11m7s Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann]] [[HolyShitQuotient will be a playable unit]], with its strongest attack turning into the ''Super'' Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. It also features perhaps one of the most [[http://youtu.be/8b1a3p6xh1I?t=3m23s beautiful deliveries]] of the Giga Drill Break ever, with highly detailed and well animated visuals backed by some of ''Gurren Lagann'''s most iconic, ManlyTears-inducing imagery. This has led to the additional fandom joke that the ''rest'' of the budget got blown on the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
*** When Team Dai Gurren start using their Gunmen in Lagann-hen, it's a curb-stomp battle. In ''Super Robot Wars'', it's a special attack of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann that shows them all completely demolishing whatever you aim them at. Of course, the next attack TakesItUpToEleven, but it's wonderful to see the combo attack they planned all the time...
** Then, they decided to top this by dropping in ''Anime/{{Diebuster}}'' for ''Tengoku-Hen''.
* ''Jigoku-hen'' is one of the few times(if not the first) where pilots are able to pilot machines not just from another series, but another ''franchise'' entirely. The funny thing is, they used such an occasion to put [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero Yuy]] and [[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms Chirico Cuvie]] in ''[[Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu Bonta-Kun]]''.
* The ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ'' manga has a story where The Edel Bernal sets Zeuth up to battle...''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha THE ALPHA NUMBERS]]'' (circa ''Alpha Gaiden'')! This includes MirrorMatch moments between ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' and ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]'', as well as having the Zeuth versions of Kouji Kabuto, and the Getter Team face off against their Alpha counterparts in Mazinkaiser and Shin Getter. Especially of note is where Sanger's Thrudgelmir stops the Mugen Punch ''effortlessly with one hand''.
