Awesome / Survival of the Fittest

Version 1
  • Jack O'Connor, managing to crash the terrorists' computer systems entirely with his virus, taking out all the cameras and the V1 ending off the air. Unfortunately this happened, how shall we say? Somewhat late...
    • He also gets another posthumous crowning moment of awesome when his virus is reintroduced to the terrorists' systems, poleaxing them again, this happening in version 3 - more than two years after Jack's death.
  • Adam Dodd's fights with Cody Jenson and Jacob Starr could count, particularly since they were among Adam's biggest rivals in the game (in the second and first half respectively).
    • Specially Adam's last action against Cody:
    Stapled to a tree was Cody Jenson, a sword through his chest, and 'RAPIST' carved into his chest

Version 2
  • Bryan Calvert dropkicking Felix Travertil off a roof, causing him to smash through the skylight of the adjoining antebuilding. Badass? Why yes, yes he is. The incident is famous enough that his handler (the real life Bryan) has a picture of himself dropkicking a tree.

Version 3
  • Darnell Butler laying out 'Boxer' Carvalho, who was more than seven foot tall, and built like a brick wall, in what amounted to one punch. This coming after Darnell just killed three people who attacked him. Beware the Nice Ones indeed...
    • For reference, Darnell is a foot shorter and almost one hundred pounds lighter than Boxer.
  • Sean O'Cann's very Deadpan Snarker -esque sarcastic comments when cornered inside a room between two of the island's resident murderers: Gabriel Theobaldt and Dominica Sharpiro, are his Crowning Moment of Awesome.
    Sean: You see why I call the guy a lunatic? * he frowns, having been called a ''young virgin metrosexual'* Hey, enough about my sex life: just concede that I have a far higher chance at getting laid than either of you and be done with it. Hell, it would be a minor miracle if Gabriel could meet any woman and spend more than a minute without disembowling her. * He looks at Dominica* And rest assured, I would come up with a suitably witty remark concerning you, however, I have no fucking clue who you are.
  • Character Derailment notwithstanding, the SADD vs. Blood Boy (one of the bigger villains of the first half of version 3) fight was one of the most action packed and all-around awesome moments of the third game so far. Read it here (the action starts at around page 4).
  • Speaking of SADD, Bobby Jacks' encounter with the group is definitely one of his best moments. Keeping his cool in the face of a giant Mexican Standoff (Bobby vs. Everyone else) Bobby manages to calm down the situation, and when things finally go to hell, both walk out of the fight completely unscathed and kill three people, granting him the distinction of being the only guy to pick a fight with SADD (the largest group in Survival of the Fittest v1-3) and come out on top. The Thread.
  • When you finally learn about what happened to the students in V3 that disappeared... Especially Bill's Heroic Sacrifice (along with Darnell Butler, John Sheppard, Jessica Jones and Derrick Taggart). The explosion? That was him destroying the armoury and taking an entire fucking platoon of Danya's soldiers with him. Then comes the final battle on the beach, which ends on a cliffhanger. EPIC.
  • Maxie Dasai's murder of Rizzolo in the epilogue.

Version 4

Version 5
  • Harry Hanley was one of a slew of characters to get inactive killed following the V5 crash. How does he get to go out? By taking out then-top killer Max Sawyer and another murderer in a Dying Moment of Awesome. Not bad for a character with less than ten posts total.
    • Sawyer wasn't exactly a slouch himself, coming off killing three people in the space of about five minutes and having it in him to take out both his ambushers before he finally keeled over.

Version 6
  • Cass Prince just witnessed the death of Travis Lynch, who kept them company since they first woke up on the island, and is now faced with an utterly remorseless Jerry Fury and his accomplice, who both threaten Cass to give up Trav's belongings or get killed also. They Take a Third Option by punching Jerry right in the face and running off with the supplies, taking a minor injury but otherwise getting away free.
  • Isabel Ramirez is not only one of the island's biggest killers, but a Sadist prone to Cold-Blooded Torture. So it's satisfying to see her attacked by at least four different people who want to see her dead, all at once. Cue Isabel going through about as much pain as she inflicted on her victims, until she's left screaming for mercy in her last moments. Might also count as an OOC example for the handlers involved due to a total of 7 people in the thread at once, all posting quickly.
  • Kaitlyn Greene decides to play a deadly game within a Deadly Game when her friend Alba Reyes stumbles into the cove to find her. Kaitlyn coerces Alba into trading weapons with her before forcing Alba into a standoff/game of chicken with her while high tide threatens to flood the cove that they are in. What follows is an incredibly tense scene as Alba tries to talk sense into Kaitlyn and Kaitlyn pushes on, the rush of danger and a misguided attempt at coaching Alba into being stronger keeping her going, eventually ending in Alba finding the fortitude to "win" Kaitlyn's game like she wanted her to.

  • In The Program v2, Maxim Senders comes across Chris Brooks on the first day. Having robbed someone before, Maxim tries to do a "repeat performance". Only, though, Chris has this to say about it:
    "Fuck you." Chris said holding up his bloody middle finger to Maxim's face. He wasn't going to let someone try and intimidate him. Not when he was in a life and death game.
  • In Virtua v1, "Big Mike" Gibraltar is facing Brian Larke. Mike has a cake, Brian has a shotgun. What does Mike do? Run at Brian and smash the cake in his face. He doesn't get very far before getting killed, but it's still one of the most audacious ways to attack someone.
    When I get to Heaven, I am so telling Anton that I threw a cake at Brian.
