* ''{{Vandread}}'' has numerous moments like this, but because of the show's focus on CombiningMecha and ThePowerOfFriendship, many of them are shared between several people.
** Solo moments:
*** Jura has both her BigDamnHeroes scene while on painkillers after being wounded and [[TenMinutesInTheCloset locking Dita and Hibiki in a room so that they could resolve their issues]]. Bonus points for ''broadcasting the whole thing to the entire ship''.
*** For Meia, TheStoic, the HeartwarmingMoments. Anime are more memorable than any amount of badassery she performed.
*** Dita's RousingSpeech to a dejected crew in the season one finale.
*** Bart got his moment to shine in his ADayInTheLimelight episode when he [[spoiler:singlehandedly destroyed a harvest ship]].
*** Hibiki has plenty of these, but when he [[spoiler:says Dita's name just before the end credits]] in the final episode, he manage to top everything else he did during the entire series.
*** Paksis''is'' the thing that [[spoiler:obliterated a superweapon about to blow up the galaxy, when everyone else was powerless to stop it, just because it wanted to protect its friends.]]
** Shared moments:
*** In the first season finale, Hibiki and Dita [[spoiler:flying [[OutOfTheInferno out of a solar flare]] and ''punching'' through the enemy flagship after it survived a direct hit from another solar flare]]. It can also be argued that the whole [[spoiler:collapsing a gas giant in order to create a star to blow up the enemy fleet with]] qualifies as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for everyone involved.
*** The first time that the four main characters [[spoiler:[[CombiningMecha form]] to make Vandread Pyoro]].
*** The four main characters [[spoiler:response to an attempted BreakingSpeech]] in the series finale.
* Pyoro gets one. [[spoiler:In episode 2 of ''Second Stage'', right after the power is restored to the whole ship and the elevator was plunging, Pyoro blocked the elevator from falling entirely by itself!]]
* Bart gets one in episode 3 of second stage. Also counts as TookALevelInBadass. When protecting a pretty much diseased planet, where he got attached to a permanently sick girl, he unleashes Nirvanas [[BeamSpam secret weapons]].
** How about the final episode [[spoiler: Just about everyone that the cast has met is now grouping together to defeat the Harvesters up to and including The Navies of Tarak and Majale defecting en masse.]]
* The first time we see Vandread Dita, the rips open an opposing ship with its bare hands before obliterating it.
* [[spoiler: Super Vandread's debut, in which it effortless stomps a fake Nirvana robot hundreds of times its size.]]
