Awesome: The King of Fighters
- The "Sacred Weapons Team" ending in KOF 97 is made of pure, unadultered WIN.
- Kensou has two in the NESTS saga. If you use him to beat Krizalid in 99, he awakens the Dragon Spirit to save Athena and himself. In 2000, he saves Bao's life after he takes a massive beam from the NESTS Kill Sat and again releases the Dragon Spirit, recovering his powers.
- Come to think of it, for someone who's actually The Scrappy, Bao going Badass Adorable via fearlessly jumping and taking the hit to protect his teammates and Kaoru is pretty awesome in itself.
- Also, Takuma using a single Haoh Shoko Ken to save King via deflecting the same energy beam from the same Kill Sat.
- If you don't fight Kula Diamond, you will see Heidern kick ass and take names via disabling Zero.If you do, Diana and Foxy disable him instead. And in Kula's own ending, she suceeds into dismantling the Zero Cannon... which prompts Candy's own CMOA with her Heroic Sacrifice
- When Ash Crimson saves the day and our timeline, revealing his benevolent true intentions and getting himself Ret Goned, it's pure awesome. And pure tears.
- And in 2001, when K' saves Kula in the Hero Team ending.
