Added DiffLines:

* In a way, Marina refusing to accept the gun that Shirin offers to her for self-defence is a pretty impressive moment. Sure, [[HonourBeforeReason it's not the smartest decision]], but sticking to her convictions even at a detriment to herself undeniably takes guts, and it demonstrates that when she's talking about peace and kindness, that's not just talk -- she genuinely means every word of it.


* Exia going [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FA6IgIbcVQY Trans-Am against Ali]], which was [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixe9UxVUN78 reenacted]] in ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2: Hakai-Hen''.

** At the end of Episode 18 of the first season, Setsuna engages the Trinities all by himself (Tieria joins him later in Episode 19, as mentioned right above) because he senses that they are acting in ways that incite warfare instead of eradicating it. He begins the fight by shooting at Johann Trinity when he's not even within his visual range. Johann barely manages to dodge the shot. Setsuna proceeds to deliver the following monologue which may very well be one of the greatest [[CrowningMomentofAwesome Crowning Moments of Awesome]] in the first season. The camera angles and the music truly sells it:

** Though the scene is quite controversial, in [[@/ChrisX this troper]]'s opinion, Episode 19 may count as either another crossing of MoralEventHorizon for [[spoiler:Nena]] or another CrowningMomentOfAwesome when [[spoiler:she finally trapped Liu Mei and Hong Long using her own ship, reveals that she hid her Throne Drei inside her shuttle, finally plastering the OhCrap face to Liu Mei as she nuked her to death.]] Sure, this may remind people of that horrible crossing event, but hey, at least [[spoiler:she's killing a [[SmugSnake Smug]] [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] character without pulling the effect of AlasPoorScrappy]].

Added DiffLines:

* Louise finally getting her revenge by [[spoiler:trashing the Throne Drei and killing Nina Trinity. Even five years and nearly thirty episodes of unreceived comeuppance isn't enough can't save you from a KarmicDeath.]]


** Tieria [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLTRdYIXILk activating the TRIAL System]] in that conflict still remains one of this troper's favorite Tieria moments. He gets caught between two Thrones, they prepare to fire on him. He sheds the Virtue's armor, revealing Nadleeh, and both the Thrones fall out of the sky, completely deactivated. Sure, the attempt ultimately failed ([[spoiler:FUCKING RIBBONS!]]), but Tieria and Nadleeh actually looked ''terrifying'' for a moment there.

* This troper finds it disappointing that nobody else has mentioned the fight between Exia and the GN Flag. It may be short, but it is still a worthy CMOA.

* Tieria gets one in the latest episode, when he uses Seravee Gundam to [[spoiler: immobilize Bring Stabity's Garozzo long enough to deploy the Seraphim Gundam. He then punches through the Garazzo's GN Field with the Seraphim's ''bare hands'' and delivers a point-blank GN Cannon shot while screaming, "I'm a human!"]]

** During that battle, Bring further demonstrates the power of the Garazzo when, after deflecting a full-power blast from the Seravee's {{BFG}}, he charges in and grapples with it. Tieria is incredulous at the idea of Bring trying to match strengths with Seravee...until the Garazzo breaks Seravee's hands ''by bending them backwards.'' Among [[{{@/Enchanter468}} this troper's]] friends, that act thoroughly cemented Bring as the most BadAss Innovator.

Because whether you admit it or not, the Anno Domini timeline did go out of its way to be awesome... which is quite appropriate for a story that ends with saying [[ChildhoodsEnd "The childhood of humanity ends."]]

* The whole bloody world gets one in Episode 17 of the second season. In a scene reminiscent of CharsCounterattack, a total of ''five'' different warring factions (Celestial Being, Katharon, the Federation army, the coup d'etat forces, and even the A-Laws) temporarily set aside their differences and the war to [[http://youtu.be/JPkHj4LqGAE?t=14m cooperate in destroying falling debris from the collapsing orbital elevator that threatens to destroy the cities below it and claim many lives]].

* It's a bit of a running gag among some Mecha Fandom circles that the only way for a character to become popular is to kick a Gundam while in a "normal" mecha (most notably Graham and Sergei). This, of course, originated from Char Aznable doing just that in ''MobileSuitGundam''.

** To clarify: The 00 rises majestically from the sea, intimidating the A-Laws officers to no end. Setsuna then does a dive straight out of ''{{Gundam SEED}}'', only to be hit by ''a flying tackle from Bushido Man's Ahead right before he reaches his target''. It was hilarious in addition to being AWESOME.
** Soma proving that Allelujah is going to need ''more'' than a Gundam to take her on. The writers might actually get one for actually writing this scene, since most recent mecha series have Mass Produced mechas being worthless against Gundams or their equivalents. The Ahead being good harks back to UC Gundam series like ''ZetaGundam''; its really refreshing to see that.

Added DiffLines:

* Sergei leading the operation to capture the Gundams. Sumeragi was out-gambit at every turn.

Added DiffLines:

*** Considering [[SmugSuper the Innovades]] spent the whole Season 2 bitching about how superior they were, their deaths at the hands of puny inferior humans were very satisfying.

Added DiffLines:

* Joshua attack Dynames with all his arrogance and cockiness. How does Lockon respond to this? He blows him up with a single shot from his beam pistol without even looking.

Added DiffLines:

* When [[TheScrappy Andrei]] grabbed Louise's hand and gave her a speech about [[StayInTheKitchen her not belonging in the army]], how does she respond? She crushes his arm with her cybernetic arm to tell him to back off.


* Lasse taking on the Alvatore with the GN Arms and finally breaking the Alvatore's GN field.
