Added DiffLines:

* The demonic Mother has turned a lot of humans into cannibals and even the Forest Shadow with all of her power and wits failed to finish her off. The Mother is also immune to all of your attacks. So what do you do? Bring down ''the mountain'' on her, impressing even Forest Shadow.

Added DiffLines:

* Taking out the final bosses with a Jade Golem. "Look, I'm the BigBad, fear my Godlike powers, and what's that BIG GREEN FIST POUNDING ME TO MUSH?!"

Added DiffLines:

* The Black Whirlwind gets a chance to make an epic PreAsskickingOneLiner if the Imperial Arena sidequest is continued and Lucky Cho attacks the player. The way the camera retreats as Whirlwind brandishes his axes while saying it makes it better.
--> '''The Black Whirlwind''': I've been waiting for this. Time to cut off [[TheDragon the Serpent's tail]]!


* When dealing with a slaver about to buy Gao the Greater's captured slaves, instead of killing him or selling a woman to him, you also have a third option: hand her a knife and tell her to fight her slaver if she wants to be free. She guts him. It's an immensely {{Badass}} demonstration of the Closed Fist philosophy.

* Kicking Death's Hand's arse? Saving a bunch of slaves? Alternately, killing a bunch of slaves? Discovering one of your party IS A GOD? Destroying an entire Lotus Assassin fortress? Come ''on''!
* Master Li gets two: Early in the game he utterly destroys a ship with a single leaping punch. Later in the game, he [[spoiler: just as effortlessly kills the player character]].
* The Open Palm resolution to [[spoiler:Master Li]] [[TakenForGranite "Trap[ping] you in doubt"]] before the final showdown. Your TrueCompanions [[ThePowerOfFriendship lends you their strength]] to help out, but it's not quite enough and you're still trapped until [[spoiler:the ghost of Sagacious Zu appears and channels his entire spirit to bust you out with one punch]]. The little 'That all you got' smirk you give [[spoiler:Li]] afterward is just the icing on the cake.
* Just as fun is the scene when Emperor Sun knocks out everyone in the room, then turns around and starts ranting about his unbeatable power while your character casually stands back up and brushes himself (or herself) off and then proceeds to beat the Emperor's ass through the floor.
