* The first crowning moment of awesome is undoubtedly the PC single handedly assaulting a Sabbat warehouse and proceeding to blow it up. The fact it was obviously a suicide mission [=LaCroix=] intended to use to dispose of the PC only makes their next encounter all the sweeter.

--->'''Malkavian:''' ''(to Lacroix)'' Give you a massive chest wound? My pleasure! ''(stab!)''
* All of the endings are awesome in their own way except the [=LaCroix=] and Kuei-jin endings. However, the Independent deserves special mention. Having been used as a pawn by everyone in Kindred society, the player character simply ''flips off'' the Anarchs when they try and recruit him. It's the ''best'' if you're ''Ventrue''. You're from the line of aristocrats, and you reject Lacroix, the Camarilla in addition to the Anarchs. Watching a Malkavian give Nines the bird is fairly awesome in its own right, too; under normal circumstances, their insanity would compel them to say something either straight out of Cloud Cuckooland or downright AxeCrazy, but tonight, the voices all come to the same conclusion: Fuck the Kuei-jin, fuck the Anarchs, fuck the Camarilla, and ''most definitely'' fuck [=LaCroix=]. Regardless of clan, remember that '''Caine himself''' told you the path you chose is the path of the lone wolf and legends. The ''one'' person you didn't tell to fuck off was ''the father of all vampires himself'', because ''he'' had your ''back''.

* On a different note, the final levels can really give this vibe, depending on the clan. It feels especially satisfying for a Toreador who's had to deal with other Kindred talking down to them or taking potshots at their clan [[OneManArmy to show the entire city how much ass a "vainglorious, narcissistic poseur" can kick in one night.]] With [[SuperSpeed Celerity]], that's a ''lot's of ass in a ''very'' short amount of time.

* The game is a GambitRoulette by the last person you'd expect. Jack is behind a multiple stage plot to overthrow the Prince. Setting up a fake sarcophagus with C4, Jack manipulated both the Kueijin and [=LaCroix=] factions into wiping each other out. It's so impressive that ''Cain himself decides to help him out.'' Pretty amazing for a guy who looks like a drugged out Hell's Angel.

* There's a reason the Malkavian PC calls Lacroix the "Jester-Prince" and Strauss the "Wizard-King". The Camarilla ending shows why.

'''Thinbloods'''

* E and Lily gets one if you blackmail and shame the latter. Horrified by the things her frenzy drove her to do, she begs you not to tell E, certain that she'll lose him for good if he finds out. She can't pay you but will do anything if you keep it a secret. When you can't get anything useful from her you have an option to tell E everything. His response is to suggest that you shove it. And Lily makes it clear that while you rescued her, she's ''not'' grateful and isn't afraid to tell that in your face. Two of the weakest characters in the game and they gets to look down on you.
