** His [[spoiler: final CrowningMomentOfAwesome, in which he [[HeroicSacrifice helps to save as many of his friends as he can by running as far as he can while carrying a bomb doomed to detonate]] ]]. Sayid is just completely awesome.

** Sawyer's first moment of badassery is most definitely the pilot. Something loud and feral is running towards the group...and they all flee, while he stands calmly, reveals a pistol from his person, and shoots what turns out to be a polar bear. His comments afterwards push this into CrowningMomentOfFunny too. "I JUST SHOT A BEAR!"

* In "Ab Aeterno," when Richard says aloud he's "changed his mind," meaning [[spoiler: he wants to side with the smoke monster/Locke monster,]] Hurley arrives and relays the words of Richard's deceased wife Isabella to Richard. While the scene is slow and more of a CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming, the real kicker comes at the end of Hurley and Richard's conversation. Hurley has a concerned look on his face and Richard asks if something's wrong. Hurley says Isabella has one more message. Richard has to stop the "man in black," AKA [[spoiler: the smoke monster/Locke monster]] from leaving the island, because if he doesn't, [[spoiler: "...''todos nos vamos al infierno.''" Which, for non-spanish speakers, means "We all go to hell."]]

Added DiffLines:

* It can safely be said by Season 6 that Un-Locke is a living and breathing [=CMoA=].

Added DiffLines:

** Nonchalantly slitting {{The Scrappy}} Zoe's throat after Widmore demonstrates how pointless she really was.


* The Monster: Its incredibly {{Badass}} attack on the soldiers in ''The Shape of Things to Come'', where it's larger, faster, deadlier, and just generally cooler than ever before.

** Later on, when Jack punches Ben in the face.

to:

** Later on, Then, of course, there's the first scene of the pilot episode, where Jack races through the chaotic wreckage of Oceanic 815, saving one life after another in full-doctor mode as there is screaming and explosions happening all around. Afterward, when he goes off by himself, we discover he sustained a nasty gash to his lower back when he landed in the jungle. Not only that, but he's also clearly dealing with some personal issues. And he still was able to do all ''that''. It's truly an EstablishingCharacterMoment for Jack.
** In Season 3,
when Jack punches Ben in the face.face. He doesn't just hit him once, Jack tackles Ben to the ground in a rage and savagely beats his face in. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown And he doesn't stop until his hands are bleeding and Ben is unconscious.]]
** There's also the NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Jack gave to Ethan Rom in Season One. Especially cathartic in that the last time they saw each other, Ethan beat the shit out of Jack.
** Anytime Jack fights Sawyer.

Added DiffLines:

** After spending almost his whole life as a CosmicPlaything on-top of not being taken seriously by the other characters [[spoiler: Hurley becomes the new caretaker of Island.]]

Added DiffLines:

** He's pretty cool in the Season 3 finale. First he takes out two Others by shooting them directly, after his dynamite fails to detonate. Then when he's captured and the Others seem seconds away from executing him, his response (in Korean)? [[FacingTheBulletsOneLiner "Go to hell."]]


*** This Troper remembers a scene in season 1 wheere Kate, grabbing supplies to try to [[spoiler:save Boon's life]], she just bluntly says what she needs and Sawyer immediately gives her everything she asked for without so much a witty quip. It's not as big or grand as jumping from a helicopter, but it's still an even earlier example of Sawyer's well-hidden (at the time) altruism and HiddenHeartOfGold.

Added DiffLines:

* The raft launching in Exodus: Part 1 is pretty awesome.

Added DiffLines:

*Juliet: is basically a Badass.
**In her very first episodes she goes from baking muffins and hosting book club to knocking Jack out with a single punch
**Gives Danny Pickett three rounds to the chest without blinking an eye, and in general is way too calm with a gun for anyone's comfort
**Continuously plots to kill and/or double-cross Ben
**Dodges Kate with expert ninja skills, suggesting martial arts training
**Walks Kate through how to pop her dislocated shoulder back in (did she mention it's the fourth time this has happened?)
**STARES DOWN THE SMOKE MONSTER
**Goes back to the beach to fight the Others with Sawyer despite knowing there are no guns
**Awesome fight with Charlotte
**Pretty much immediately becomes Jack's second-in-command and then new leader in the fourth season
**Performs an appendectomy on the beach, and in the same episode gracefully accepts that Jack wants Kate
**Detonates a bomb. With a rock. While severely injured.
