The dojo sequence in ''Final Flight of the Osiris''.



* ''Kid's Story'' for one reason. [[spoiler:Kid manages to wake ''himself'' up from the Matrix, something nobody, not even ''Neo'', thought was possible]].
* ''World Record'' begins with a narration that basically says that some [[BadassNormal people]] find out about the Matrix without any help due to having key senses of intuition, sensitivity, and a questioning nature, and a [[BadassNormal rare few]] find out through "wholly different means." The story is about a runner who breaks the titular record for the 100 meter dash, only for his medal to be revoked due to testing positive for drugs. Undeterred, he runs another race, and, despite being chased by Agents and having all his leg muscles blow out from overexertion, manages to break even his previous record, and in fact manages to break out of the Matrix for a few seconds because it ''couldn't handle how fast he was going''.
** And then there's the ending. The runner has been reduced to being pushed around in a wheelchair by a chatty nurse, paraplegic but nearly comatose, and is being monitored by one of the Agents that had been watching and chasing him earlier. The Agent comments that [[TemptingFate "he will never run again. He will never even walk again for that matter."]] At that moment, the runner mutters the word "free" and stands up, ''shattering the braces bolting his legs to his wheelchair in the process''. As the Agent [[VillainousBreakdown has a mild freakout]] and the nurse chases after him, the runner steps forward, hands outstretched towards the light- and for one brief moment before his injuries kick back in, [[BeyondTheImpossible his feet leave the ground]].

* ''World Record'' begins with a narration that basically says that some [[BadassNormal people]] find out about the Matrix without any help due to having key senses of intuition, sensitivity, and a questioning nature, and a [[BadassNormal rare few]] find out through "wholly different means." The story is about a runner who breaks the titular record for the 100 meter dash. His medal is revoked, however, due to him testing positive for drugs. Undeterred, he runs another race, and, despite at one point being chased by Agents and ''muscles in his legs blowing out'', he is completely undeterred, keeps running and beats his previous record. The biggest CMOA here is that he managed to break out of the Matrix for a few seconds (only to be plugged back in by the machines).
* The ending to ''World Record'' might be an even bigger Moment then that. Since his muscles blew out, the final scene is of him being pushed in a wheelchair by a chatty nurse, not just paraplegic but in some kind of catatonic state, and is being monitored by one of the Agents who were watching and chasing him earlier. The Agent also mentions how his memory of the race was wiped and how [[TemptingFate "He will never run again. He will never even walk again for that matter."]] All of a sudden, he mutters the word "Free." before getting up and walking a few steps, much to the shock of the nurse and especially the Agent. He falls back down just before it looks like he's about to leave the ground flying. This becomes even more Awesome when you remember that no other human except [[TheChosenOne Neo]] could possibly fly, and this guy nearly does it after getting crippled.

Added DiffLines:

* The dojo sequence in ''Final Flight of the Osiris''.
* ''Beyond'' is one of the most stunning animated shorts of all time. The soundtrack alone is incredible in its own right. Don't forget the gorgeous animation, which is both extremely unusual and very natural feeling when the characters are in motion.
* ''A Detective Story'' should go here for combining two radically different genres, FilmNoir and CyberPunk, smoothly and beautifully. The ending where the detective has his gun pointed at the Agents in pure defiance of their mind control/body hopping abilities counts too.
* Although [[NightmareFuel horrifying for some]], both parts of ''The Second Renaissance'' are filled with this, but most noteworthy is the Epic Battle sequence. Rare to see that in animation nowadays.
* ''Kid's Story'' for one reason. [[spoiler:Kid manages to wake ''himself'' up from the Matrix, something nobody, not even ''Neo'', thought was possible]].

* ''Program'' has Cis pulling a BareHandedBladeBlock, breaking the katana, then ramming it into her foe's throat.
