* Dr. K captures the Venjix doomsday weapon by reprogramming it with whale DNA, thus becoming a weapon on Corinth's side. Of course, [[YouFailBiologyForever this defies all logic]], but the MST3KMantra applies.

Added DiffLines:

* Part 1:
** Summer using her EnergyBall against Attack Bot 08's sound attacks in a BeamOWar, and winning!
* Summer showing up to fight Tenaya 7 one-on-one after the other Rangers have fallen. While Tenaya ends up using one of the Nitro Blasters against her, Summer fights her throughout the entire construction site and getting the [[{{Pun}} upper hand]] off of Venjix's litenaunt. When 7 uses said arm to attack her from behind, Summer immediately catches on from the reflection in her visor, dodging at the perfect time for Tenaya to blast herself instead.
---> '''Summer''': ''You need some new upgrades''.


** Summer got two in her flashbacks. First, when her butler Andrews was fatally shot by grinders, Summer (who throughout her flashbacks was shown as a spoiled rich kid who depended on money) stepped up to the plate and kicked metal butt to [[BerserkButton avenge her butler's sacrifice]] while wearing a red dress. And I'll point out again a normal person was killed onscreen on Power Rangers, and a Disney Power Rangers at that. The ending of that scene is a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming with Summer and Andrews' goodbye. Moving forward, the second flashback CrowningMomentOfAwesome is when Summer hopped on a motorcycle, gave up her pampered lifestyle for good, and went out of the safety of Corinth to rescue Scott, who she didn't even know at the time. And she did this even after being told that there was no way to help him as he was too far out for anyone to rescue him.

** Then, Dr. K fends off Tenaya 7 with her violin revving up the lab's ventilation systems. The music she plays provides the soundtrack to the Zenith Megazord's finishing attack instead of the standard rock music typically used in a battle sequence. This falls under CrowningMusicOfAwesome.

** Why do they need a parachute? Well, the fight on the ground is brutal and one-sided, and the Rangers get absolutely thrashed. Just when they're about to get killed, they look up to see Gem and Gemma, the Gold and Silver Rangers, BackFromTheDead and using their zords to ''bring down the command building on top of Venjix's head''. What makes the scene even more awesome is that General Crunch is ''inside'' the building as it comes down. The fact that the scene is so unexpected and so ridiculously over-the-top makes it the most awesome villain take-down in the history of the franchise. There were too many instances of the Rangers defeating a physically-superior opponent just because they're the heroes and the plot dictates that they win. Venjix doesn't even get to go out fighting, instead, the Rangers drop a million tonnes of concrete from high in the atmosphere on his head. It is absolutely fucking brilliant. A fitting finish to RPM.

* The season itself is a [=CMoA=] for ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' as a whole as it delves into territory the series has not dealt with up to that point: What happens when the BigBad actually ''wins'' and Earth has been almost completely destroyed? Who will rise up to fight for what is left? And they managed to use footage from [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger one of the goofiest Sentai seasons in recent history]] and made one of ''Power Rangers'' darkest seasons to date.

* Ziggy's shadow puppet show in the cave. Although it's more of a heartwarming moment, it also falls under awesome because ''he finally got Dr. K, the most serious character in the series, to crack a grin''. It's even more awesome when you consider that he did something unselfish to make someone else happy, even as they are both dying of asphyxiation.

Added DiffLines:

* As the Rangers battle the Sat Bot, Dillon is torn between helping his friends and getting his memories back. He's even strong enough to override Dr. K's commands to remotely de-morph. But realizing that he now has his friends beside him, he resolves to fight back against the Sat Bot and finish it off.

* Not to mention the Ultrazord's finisher, which is CrazyAwesome and [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill overkill]] at the same time- first, it summons up four holograms in the shape of the component Megazords (High Octane, [=ValveMax=], Mach and [=PaleoMax=]), which all slash the monster. Then ''the entire Ultrazord becomes [[KillItWithFire wreathed in flames]]'', and runs through the monster at high speeds, utterly destroying it.

He also reminds the Colonel that arresting her wouldn't bring anyone back.

* Even the bad guys have awesome moments. The Rangers have found out that [[spoiler: over half of Corinth is comprised of hybrids like Dillon]]. Scott finally convinces Colonel Truman to take the fight to Venjix. As they make preparations to do so, [[spoiler: Tenaya 15 activates a magnetic wave that activates them all, thus letting Venjix infiltrate Corinth with ease]].

* After receiving an unusually sharp rebuke by Dr. K, Flynn loses his confidence and throws his gadgets away. Gemma sees one of his trashed creations and then decides to work on it with him, calling it the Road Attack Zord. In the heat of battle, Flynn convinces Dr. K to down-morph the new weapon, though it backfires as it attacks both Venjix's Hammer Bot and the Rangers. Gemma confesses to Flynn that she may have had given it too much power. Flynn then decides to use this to their advantage by having Dr. K draw the Road Attack Zord's excess energy to repair the other Zords. It's an awesome moment for Flynn and Gemma since they created a Zord almost entirely on their own, without Dr. K's help (or even approval at first). Dr. K even comments to Colonel Truman that the idea to reroute the Zord's excess energy was Flynn's idea, thus showing that she has developed as a character by allowing others to contribute weapons and technical expertise to the team.
