The fanfic series Titan Legends
has gained popularity over the past few years for many reasons, one of which is the guaranteed Crowning Moment Of Awesome
in every arc so far. While most CMOA's are attributable to one character in each moment, there are plenty where they are done by a group. Several notable ones include:
Black and White
Wings of the Eagles
The Epic of Gauntlet
- Anarky arc: Licorice.
- Kate and Naomi duping Savior into going with them on their trip.
- Slade's reveal at the end of the Sins of the Fathers arc.
- Cyborg and Gauntlet coming to save the day in the T-Car with "The Ride of the Valkyries" blaring.
- And then Johnny Rancid crashing into the generator to stop the Zap Pack.
- He gets bonus points for the chalkboard.
- The author considers the retcon/re-imagining of Mad Mod's past and motivations in the same chapter to be a personal CMOA.

Beast Boy: When your time of judgment comes, you will pass through the gates. You will walk to the throne of our Lord, and kneel in expectations of your thanks and gratitude. And He will look at you…not with pride, not with joy…but with sadness. And He will speak but four words. I don’t know you.
