* A bit of a meta one: Witch Hunt, the group responsible for producing the unofficial English translation for the games, received a letter from Ryukushi07, the writer/creator of Umineko. Instead of responding with a Cease and Desist, like most would, R7 instead expressed admiration for their spirit and praised them for translating his game. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming He went on to name a group in the fourth episode of the novels after said translation group.]]

** And then there was a final CrowningMomentOfAwesome for ''the whole family'' at the climax, but especially Ange. [[spoiler:When she realizes her power as the Witch of Resurrection, she brings back Battler and every single one of her friends and family, real or imaginary, human or otherwise, who had died in the Golden Land just moments ago. Bernkastel's attempts to destroy them with the red truth [[IRejectYourReality are negated by]] [[EleventhHourSuperpower everyone's gold truth]], which they then pool into a single, massive attack that tears through all the blue truths Bernkastel had been massacring Battler a minute ago and then continues on to her, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu finally defeating her]]. The Witch of Miracles was felled by not only Battler and Ange, but the entire Ushiromiya family and their friends. When you think of how much pain and suffering Bernkastel had caused them all, no defeat could be more fitting.]]

** Her first round with Battler in EP 8 manga, culminating in her handing his ass to him, solving EP 5 and 6 as well as the riddle of [[spoiler:ShKannontrice]] is one CrowningMomentOfAwesome long overdue.

* The two battles in Episode 4 between Gaap and George and Jessica and Ronove wherein they are forced to make a SadisticChoice: Commit a HeroicSacrifice, kill the person they love most, or kill everyone else. Both make their choice in the most awesome way: Jessica sacrifices herself, but refuses to go down without a fight. George decides to kill everyone except himself and Shannon -- starting with Gaap, the person who forced the choice upon him.

* Episode 8's Manga has one moment summed up in two words: [[spoiler: Black Battler]]. Heck, just the factor that [[spoiler: he]] even APPEARS if mainly in reference is a moment of both awesome and horror [[spoiler: considering how much more powerful he gets the more "Battler Culprit Theories" pop up]]. When [[spoiler: he appears, he almost singlehandedly [[CurbstompBattle kills each and every one of the surviving family members as Golden Land falls apart.]]]] However, this gives way to an even BIGGER moment of awesome from Beatrice, [[spoiler: who curbstomps him in turn by saying "Urshiromiya Battler is not the culprit!" in red which [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe CUTS BLACK BATTLER IN HALF VERTICALLY]].]] This both shows how horrifically powerful [[spoiler: Black Battler]] can be, but also the factor that the true master and creator of the catbox is Beatrice, and that she can deny even the toughest of what anyone throws at it.

* While these days it is [[ItWasHisSled almost impossible to not know]] about Bernkastel's [[spoiler: true personatliy]], back when it still was not a widely known fact, the ending of the secret tea party of Episode 4 definitely qualified. Starting off almost cute, the scene quickly turns into a [[spoiler: [[CurbStompBattle Curb-Stomp Battle]] without the defending party even being present as Lambdadelta piece by piece tears apart all the solutions for the mystery [[DiscOneFinalDungeon that Beatrice just accepted in her final fight against Battler]]]]. Things get calmer again, with Bernkastel and Lambdadelta talking casually with each other once more. Then, suddenly, the music fades, and both of them [[spoiler: declare Beatrice's certain defeat]]. The truely epic and terrifying staff credits music from Episode 1 fades in, and for the first time, we see [[spoiler:Bernkastel laughing diabolically, revealing her true nature]] and setting the stage for all the Episodes to come. Truly a CMOA combined with what was back then possibly the biggest [[OhCrap Oh, Crap]] moment ever.

** In the beginning of Episode 5, we see Natsuhi getting into an argument with Krauss over his ''really'' stupid decisions and how he squandered the family fortune. When he starts getting too excited about the idea of fixing everything with Kinzo's hidden gold, Natsuhi actually slaps Krauss to get him off her. To clarify, Krauss was ''actually'' afraid of her and recoiled even though Natsuhi only slapped him to get him to calm down. Still, it showed there was a limit to how much stupidity she was willing to put up with from her husband.
