** The duel between Kira and Athrun could really be a Crowning Moment for the ''[[GrowingTheBeard series itself]]''. Up until this point, both of them have been trying to capture/convert each other, since they're {{Forgotten Childhood Friend}}s. However, now ItsPersonal because they've both just had [[AnyoneCanDie a friend and comrade in arms killed]] by the other. Now [[TheGlovesComeOff The Gloves]] ''[[TheGlovesComeOff Come]] '''[[TheGlovesComeOff Off]]''''', and this fight becomes [[CombatBreakdown a brutal slugfest]] with both of them putting everything they have into killing the other.

** episode 36: [[spoiler: Lacus and Athrun. RoseHairedSweetie who's completely unarmed vs. emotionally-unstable AcePilot with a gun?

[[spoiler: Then Lacus' guards pick them off like flies. They were hiding and no one noticed; Lacus only ''appeared'' to be alone and exposed. In reality, she was perfectly safe the whole time.]]

** Kira has experience with programming mobile suit OS' If you recall in the first episode it has him running and programming data for a new OS for a mobile suit like object. It is also mentioned that Kira had been helping him for quite some time as he carries data for it around. Doesn't make it less assume.

** From a meta perspective, no matter how you feel about the decision, [[spoiler: Mu not only did the impossible by managing to block a positron blast with just (an extremely damaged to boot) Strike, but managed to ''survive it'']] You have to give points to him for absolutely living up to his boast, if nothing else.

**The media war she starts with Patrick Zala goes so heavily in her favor that he gives up trying to brand her as a traitor. Episode 42 shows one of his minions on TV saying she is an UnwittingPawn of the "evil naturals" and that his administration is trying to "save her". Lacus' reputation and ability as an orator are so sterling that they have to resort to this feeble tactic. It's also an awesome credit to her security detail for keeping her so well hidden that she can't just be shot.

* While not having to do with fighting, Lacus herself gets a few. Her first one is when she ''demands'' Rau withdraw from fighting the Archangel after Kira frees her. Up until this point she's come off as an IdolSinger with a touch of CloudCuckoolander, and has never raised her voice once. To suddenly hear her yelling at Rau for trying to start a battle is pretty awesome. She also manages to organize a resistance movement within the ZAFT military, give Kira the Freedom with relative ease, and then steal the new battleship ZAFT had been developing. For a total non combatant Lacus arguably makes as many contributions to ending the war as Kira does.
** Lacus and the Clyne Faction HIJACKING A WARSHIP was epic win.

** His BigDamnHeroes / DynamicEntry in ''"The Descending Sword"'' is one of the highlights of the series. As the ''Archangel'' desperately tries to put some distance between it and the Alaskan base (which is about to self-destruct), a lone [[MechaMooks GINN]] gets the drop on the crew. Just as it's about to blow the bridge to Kingdom Come (in dramatic slo-mo), a beam rifle shot from above blows the gun out of the unit's hands, followed a second later by the Freedom literately dropping out of the sky and [[OffWithHisHead decapitating]] the ZAFT unit with a quick sword slash. Right about then is when ''[[http://vimeo.com/27009599 Meteor]]'' kicks in as the Freedom rises up in front of the ''Archangel'' and [[http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130911195047/gundam/images/2/29/Freedom_Archangel.JPG deploys it's wings]], as if to say "''[[HesBack I have returned]]!'' ''If you want the Archangel, you're [[IAmYourOpponent going to have to get past]] '''[[IAmYourOpponent ME]]'''''!"

** During episode 5, Kira's mobile suit runs out of power. He could recharge the power by going back to the ''Archangel'' and getting another Striker pack, but he gets captured by a ZAFT Gundam. So what does Mu do? He dives in with his mobile armor, blasts the Gundam enough to get it to drop Kira, and has the ''Archangel'' load the replacement Striker pack onto the launch catapult and '''shoot''' it out to Kira. "Making the Impossible Possible" indeed.

** Yzak rescuing [[spoiler:Cagalli]] deserves elaboration. [[spoiler:[[ActionGirl Cagalli]]]] is ambushed by SuperSoldier Shani Andras, who sends a beam of hot plasma at her. [[spoiler:Cagalli's]] about to be toast, when Yzak throws his own mobile suit in front of hers and takes the beam on his shield. Said BigDamnHeroes moment would probably be plenty awesome by itself, but then he draws a beam saber and ''charges the enemy Gundam head-on.'' Shani opens fire again, blowing Yzak's shield into a million pieces and engulfing his Gundam in a huge explosion. Cue a moment of horrified silence...followed by the Duel ''bursting'' OutOfTheInferno ''DualWielding beam sabers.'' Before Shani can say "holy shit", Yzak chops the arms off his Gundam with one saber and rams the other through his cockpit. [[{{Badass}} Bad. Ass.]]
