Although it could be argued that Zoofights is a Crowning Moment for the internet and Something Awful in general, some moments still manage to stick out. Add more examples, Elohim commands you!
Expect unmarked spoilers.

Mechos and Darth Gorilla invoking the Conservation of Ninjutsu and defeating Two Hundred Radioactive Tarantulas With Jetpacks and Party Hats. Especially awesome since the spiders had been winning with sheer numbers up until then.
The entire finale where the surviving combatants face down borderline Eldritch Abomination Swanmass, an event that would go on to become a staple of future Zoofights tournaments.
Since nothing's here yet I'd like to nominate Discount Bees' artwork. His portraits of Berlin Walrus◊ and Croaka-Cola◊ are fantastic and I was sad that he didn't/couldn't do one for all the contestants.
H.H. Johnson (Blurry Gray Thing)'s observations on Luchadillo (bottom of page).
Vylan Antagonist's observations on Gadadhara (down a bit), so good Major Failure counted it despite closing the votes after H.H. Johnson's post. They could also count as a "What Could've Been" for the doomed Reticulated Giraffython and the Russian Rhino Tank. Whatjusthappened's account of Gadadhara on the job (near bottom) is also pretty good and Vylan Antagonist's picture of Gadadhara KO'ing Luchadillo (bottom of page) aint' too bad either.
The Fite Yer' Mates Big Bar Brawl on the forum. From the buildup prior to the fight, giving everyone added characterisation and motivations for winning, to the fight itself, written with all the quality and brutality of Major Failure himself, it's clear that jumpropeman may be one of, if not the best writer Zoofights has.
The Osmium Chef dies on her own terms, shoving her own whisk-arm into her microwave chest, exploding in a spectacular mass of feathers and electricity, and giving Krilldozer a radioactive migraine as a final Fuck You.
This deserves some elaboration. In the previous round Black Rabbath (As Hare Metal) completely obliterated his opponent, Pep-simian, with barely a sweat. The Pangolins by contrast only just scraped through the first round, losing two of their members in the process. Black Rabbath is an unholy engine of Metal death and unfathomable eldritch energies, whereas the Pangolins are armed with a weaponless and stripped down WWI tank, a power drill and an assortment of automatic weaponry. Despite Rabbath and his cult pulling every dirty trick in the book, the Pangolins win the day with teamwork and grit, dismantling Black Rabbath whilst recieving no wounds and the only casualty being the destruction of their tank.
Muertodillo versus Horsepower. Midway through the fight is interrupted by a rift in spacetime opening and spitting out Delorelion and Teddy Krueger, (And a cameo by Croctopus!)who continue their previous battle. The fight ends with Delorelion literally punching Teddy Krueger into atoms and Muertodillo hammer throwing Horsepower into the rift.
Final Mantisy defends the world from the nightmarish mess that is Mental Ben and Nightmare by magically crushing them in a sphere of water. Keep in mind, up until this point, Mantisy's magic powers were thought to be a mere invention of her game-addled mind.
Muhammut Kali absolutely slaughtering his way through the Royal Rumble, racking up an amazing 17 kills.
