* Right after body-charging Zeikfried off a platform towards a black hole, Zeikfried ensnares Rudy's left arm with some kind of metal cord, and nastily gloats to Rudy about how they're NotSoDifferent and how if he goes down, he's taking Rudy with him. [[HeroicMime Rudy's]] response? [[spoiler:''[[ShutUpHannibal He blows his freakin' arm off]] with his {{BFG}}'' (cuts it off with his [[CoolSword sword]], in the original), saving himself (though [[TenMinuteRetirement incapacitating himself as well, obviously]]) and letting Zeikfried fall into the void.]] It's one of the biggest "holy SHIT!" moments in the game, mitigated slightly by the terror you feel for Rudy...which only increases when you then discover [[spoiler:he's an ArtificialHuman, possibly vindicating Zeikfried's statements...]]
** ''[=McDullen=]/Magdalen'', Jane's BattleButler, gets one in ''Alter Code F'' when he joins the battle by non-chalantly tossing his coat on ''Alhazad'', the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Quarter Knights]]' second-in-command.
** Cecilia gets hers when she [[spoiler:enters Rudy's mind while he's in a coma (from the above injury and the resulting surgery). Discovering he's being tortured by a nightmare-inducing demon, she proceeds to [[DuelBoss completely destroy]] [[HeroicResolve the CRAP]] [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind out of said demon]], and pulls Rudy out of his coma with ThePowerOfLove.]] Ladies and gents, this is why [[ShipTease the Rudy/Cecilia ship]] exists.
** Jack, faced with TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, with his love and the evil MacGuffin being used as the fuel. [[HeroicResolve He stands up]] [[{{Determinator}} despite facing this enormous power]] and [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer slashes the hell out of the Darkness Tear]], destroying it and saving the entire planet from the disasters it was causing. Insane.

[[AC:VideoGame/WildARMs2]]
* The entire final battle is a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome CMOA]] for pretty much the entire cast [[spoiler:as they in turn rise up and [[CombinedEnergyAttack transfer their power to Ashley, who then uses it to strike Lord Blazer for ever-increasing amounts of damage]]]], assuming you can get past the [[ThePowerOfFriendship friendship speeches]]. Made all the more awesome by the ThemeMusicPowerUp used, which was a [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic kickass battle remix]] of the first opening song and is quite possibly one of the greatest pieces of video game music ever composed.
** Brad's BigDamnHeroes moment. Saving the skin of the party by arriving with a [[{{BFG}} Rail Gun]], which he uses to heavily damage the Vinsfeld's warship.
* Can't forget Ashley getting his Access for the first time complete with a ThemeMusicPowerUp.

[[AC:VideoGame/WildARMs3]]
* Maya Schroedinger kicking Siegfried's ass so hard that the plot had to come up with a new villain for the heroes to fight.
** Asgard [[spoiler: bursting out of the innocuous statue in the first dungeon]] to help his masters, [[spoiler: having gotten around the Guardian of Time sending him to the distant past by [[TheSlowPath hibernating his way to the present]]]]. Now ''that's'' what you call an ImplacableMan.
** Lombardia [[spoiler:destroys Siegfried once and for all with her ultimate [[WaveMotionGun Draconic Gun Blaster]].]] The attack animation isn't actually any different, but it's such a ''coup de grace'' moment that you can't help but cheer in victory.

* The manner in which the party begins the final battle: [[spoiler: The door to Volsung's hall opens, and Volsung looks down the carpeted hall from upon his throne, expecting to see the party walking determinedly towards him. Instead, he sees Dean ''sitting in the monowheel,'' and Dean proceeds to rip down the hallway, ducking and weaving in between Volsung's laser defenses while shooting them down, eventually ''driving the monowheel up a pillar'' and shooting down the rest of the laser emitters in midair, landing perfectly and driving the final few meters to Volsung - only to get blasted into the air by the last laser emitter, ''except he doesn't let that stop him,'' and proceeds to grab the monowheel ''in midair'' and force it down towards Volsung (shouting a battle cry that slightly reeks of {{Narm}}) - except Volsung finally stands up and blocks the monowheel with his {{BFS}} (the S standing for spear), and the screen goes white. When it fades, we find Dean and Volsung, surrounded by flames, and after they slowly stand up, they get into a quick scuffle, moving at the speed of Anime/DragonBallZ, which finally ends when Dean lands on his feet, the rest of the party runs up, and the final battle begins, after Volsung proving he's a sheer badass with a slick line and the small motion of ''pushing up his glasses on his nose.'']] Best. Final boss intro. Ever.
