Awesome: The Amazing World of Gumball

Season 1

  • From "The Mystery", Gumball's attempts to escape with the entire school pursuing him. He ends up getting off the hook, but the chase scene is still pretty awesome.
  • Darwin fin-smacking a skyscraper sized forest creature during "The Picnic".
  • The song "You Gotta Think Big" in "The Genius".
  • "The Mustache": Gumball getting so fed up with Tina's taunting that he actually catches a dodge ball going at him with 100 mph with one hand.
    • Then he throws it right back and slams her through the wall.
  • The Final Destination homage in "The Curse" in which Gumball ends up on the highway riding a mop bucket.

Season 2

  • Anais's tricking her entire family into letting her watch "Daisy the Donkey" on "The Remote."
    Nicole: I feel so proud of her, yet, really scared at the same time.
  • The fight with Ocho in "The Phone".
  • Needlemeyer in "The Job".
    Laurence:I FIRE THEE!
  • "The Words" has a whole Street Fighter II scene! Feelings-style.
    Gumball: YOU'RE NOT MY BROTHER! YOU'RE JUST A FISH, WHO GREW LEGS!!!
    Announcer: ULTRA COMBO!!!!
  • Nicole beats up a Tyrannosaurus Rex!
  • Gumball defeating the evil virus in "The Virus". After it has them cornered after possessing cars and trying to run them down, Gumball challenges it to come and get him by appealing to its ego. After the virus emerges, Gumball simply steps on him. It's even more impressive because Gumball actually won by being smart for once. The anticlimax of it also makes is a Crowning Moment of Funny.
  • Richard gets one in "The Hero" for rescuing Gumball and Darwin from the car crusher in the junkyard.
  • In "The Limit" after Richard was tricked into being a man and demands Nicole do as he says, Nicole responds by giving him a Death Glare so deadly, it blows away all the stock on the store shelves.
  • At the end of "The Castle", Nicole forces the people who trashed her house by using a Penance Stare.

Season 3

  • The song "Make The Most Of It" from "The Kids" counts as two, as it not only shows how awesome your childhood can be, but is also a great send-off to Gumball and Darwin's original voice actors.
  • Darwin returning to save Gumball from the turtle in "The Puppy".
    Darwin: (in a gravelly older man's voice): You thought you could drag me to the bottom of the lake so you could eat me later. Well guess what, punk: I'm a fish—with legs! (kicks turtle).
  • In "The Name", Gumball finally finds something he can beat Zach at:
    Zach: Forget it! I'm the boss of this game, I know all the combos!
    Gumball: But the combos are useless against BUT-TON MASH-ING!
  • In The Void: Gumball, Darwin, Molly and Mr Small escaped from the void via Janice.
  • As completely, stupidly unnecessary it was for Gumball to take one of Darwin's super-sneezes just to prove he wasn't going to leave him, you have to admit it's pretty impressive that he managed to hang on during the whole thing.
  • Nicole saving Darwin and Gumball in "The Mothers" from falling off a building by using a hose to swing after them.
  • Gumball calling out Penny's father when she runs away in "The Shell."
    • To make it even more awesome, Mr. Fitzgerald immediately admits to being wrong, then Gumball tells him not to beat himself up about it.
    • Gumball dropping his usual idiocy, laziness, and cowardice to help Penny, including having himself launched into the air to catch up to Penny quickly realizing that he had to be cruel to her to make her small enough to avoid having them be hit by a truck.
    • Even Mr. Fitzgerald get his when he makes up for what he said to Penny by slamming his car into the Pest Control's truck to protect his daughter from getting shot and trusting Gumball to get to her.
    • Hell, the episode should be called how Gumball became a man! He came a long way from Season 1 where he was a loser protagonist who had no talent and very shy to Penny back then. Now in Season 3, he showed determination that would make his mother proud by showing how much he loves Penny's true form by going through the burden in coming for her and showed his true love as they kissed. He even got Penny's father to approve their relationship! The kid's not so much of a loser now huh?
