* Then Char gets his own back in his last scene of the show, where he braves a CollapsingLair to deliver final vengeance for his father in a manner most awesome - namely, by [[spoiler: nailing Kycilia [[OffWithHisHead in the face]] with a bazooka. From the other side of her battleship, from a considerable distance away, through the battleship's front window, while flying on a jetpack and while said battleship was rapidly ascending on an escape course with said Zeon station rapidly falling apart around him. Char bet it all on a long shot and won despite the odds. Hot damn.]]
* Char for how he handled his best friend, another Zabi. A normal bastard will leads his best friend right into an enemy trap. A Magnificent Bastard? Calls him on the phone, explains his motives, and waves good-bye.

* How could you guys forget the battle at Side 6? A damaged White Base is being pursued out of a neutral colony by two Zeon battleships. Right after passing the neutral perimeter and into no-man's space, Bright chooses to engage the enemy which is still inside of the neutral zone and cannot fire back. The result? White Base utterly destroys the enemy with Amuro single-handedly shooting down 9 out of 12 enemy Rick Dom suits and downing a battleship. All in the matter of ''three minutes''.

** He caps this in the final episode, by taking down the ''Zanzibar''-class mobile cruiser ''Chimera'' with a ''man-sized bazooka''. The best part is that it was ''by accident'': he was just [[spoiler: [[OffWithHisHead decapitating]] Kycilia]] with the bazooka, and the shot happened to wreck the piloting systems and kill everyone on the bridge, sending the ship to crash.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome Many such as "Soldier of Sorrow", which has recently been remade by none other than Gackt for Gundam Vs Gundam [=NEXT=]. Another iconic one is "Char ga kuru/Here comes Char", a suave song that channels much of the man's aura and can be interpreted as being sung by someone who got beat by him.
** In one episode, Federation soldiers dance at the tune of an instrumental version of '''''"Here Comes Char"'''''. Char is just that awesome...
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igz6zQ5fkMk Encounter]]'', the credits theme to Movie III. In its composition and lyrics, it just captures the bittersweetness of the way the story ends: [[spoiler: Amuro and most of the ''White Base'' crew survive the war and the Principality of Zeon is dissolved... but Amuro killed Lalah by accident, cementing himself and Char as enemies for life; the ''White Base'' and ''Gundam'' were sunk in the final battle; Sayla is separated from Char for the rest of their lives.]]

** And even with the heat hawk, Amuro ''barely survived''. How is it even possible, if Char's weapons couldn't even scratch the Gundam's armour? Easy: Char started kicking the Gundam in the 'belly' with enough strength to ''throw Amuro around the cockpit''. Without the seatbelts, Amuro would have died at the first kick... And those poor seatbelts took a lot of abuse by the time Char was driven off.


** That battle is also awesome for the Federation conventional forces, as it makes clear that not only [[TankGoodness a tank can still destroy an unwary mobile suit's ass]], but also that Zeon only got so far with invading Earth only because the Federation's ground forces had been neglected before the war and ''had to be rebuilt from scratch, '''without the contribution of the whole of North America and most of China's immense industrial power'''''.

** Bonus point for Revil passingly tearing into the Federation's own corrupt government before dismantling the idea it could justify Zeon's war crimes.
