Awesome / Ah! My Goddess

Go To

  • Lind and Keiichi kicking ass in the "Fighting Wings" arc and associated TV special.
    • Also in Fighting Wings, Belldandy gets TWO at the same time. First she proves to be so pure-hearted she purifies a demonic familiar into a real angel by her will alone, and gives Lind a Rousing Speech that snaps her out of minor Heroic BSoD, after which Lind starts kicking ass. Also, since this is Belldandy, these double as Heartwarming Moments.
  • A minor example, but how many people have the stones to backtalk the queen of demons, which Keiichi essentially did? Hild certainly found it awesome, telling Belldandy, "That Keiichi — Rrrowr!"
    • What happened immediately after that is, if anything, even more awesome. Hild, using her most withering glare, demands Belldandy give Keiichi to her. Bell, without missing a beat or breaking her smile, tells the demon queen, "Absolutely not."
  • Keiichi shows his worth once again in the Hagall arc. He had a central point in defeating each of Hagall's minions with sheer cleverness. He is the only human there, and he manages to top almost everybody.
    • In extension, Belldandy gets another moment when she faces a demon so strong that she can destroy songs with her fists. When she is about to attack Keiichi, Belldandy steps in and continuously fends her off with high speed attacks. Urd proceeds to comment that Belldandy has obtained a Valkyrie license, and that is why she has incredible fighting moves.
      • And even then, Keiichi's the one to pull out the victory, by tricking her into hitting the door she was guarding with a full-force punch. Whether the door or her fist broke from the impact, they'd win. Such cleverness earns him her respect.
  • The singing during the climax of The Movie.
    • Any time any of the goddesses sing, period.
    • In the TV series, there is an episode where Urd needs her two halves fused together with the help of Hild, her mother — it's a long story (that's actually a combination of two separate manga stories). Anyway, with Hild's singing in minor coupled with Belldandy and Skuld both in major, crawling up and up the scale. Wow.

  • The Fighting Wings TV Special deserves a mention for the totally awe-inspiring chorus in the background when the goddesses and their angels get their Moment.
  • Keiichi asking God for his daughter's hand in marriage in chapter 294 of the manga.
  • Skuld trapping a body-stealing Eldritch Abomination in a floppy disk, and then killing it with a magnet.
  • Hild calling Belldandy out for being a liar and hypocrite (heaven has hacked K1's mind to keep them an utterly chaste couple), when she and Tyr were forced apart despite still loving each other. And being right.
  • Every time Keiichi races, he's collecting some awesome. He's faster than two holders of the title of "Racing Queen of Nekomi" (inferred by Megumi conquering the title by outracing the previous Queen but refusing to use the title until Keiichi is gone), and has competed in a world-class rally and won in spite of Aoshima's sabotage (the runner-up duo believed Keiichi and Belldandy had used magic to pass them… later they inspected the course and realized Keiichi simply knew a feature of it they didn't know and was also as good as them). Also, he survived Tamiya and Otaki's madness in modifying vehicles (a madness that in one occasion left Belldandy speechless).
    • Keiichi's two losses in a race are moments of awesome for both him and the eventual winner:
      • The first one is a race against Chihiro, with vehicles modified from the same starting point. Their racing abilities are equal, but Chihiro has beefed up her vehicle's engine… and when the modifications start wearing it out, she replaces it with an identical one while still racing.
      • To have the right to refuse to take over as president of the Motor Club, Sora must race against Keiichi in a race organized by Chihiro (who is almost as crazy as Tamiya and Otaki), in which they must use two identical tiny vehicles (except that Keiichi broke-in his engine, so in the actual race his is faster), and they can choose whatever route they want as long as they stay inside the campus and pass three checkpoints in the proper order. Sora has on her team the entire Motor Club (at first fearful of Sora's shyness and nervous breakdowns whenever someone points out her small stature too many times in a row, but later they grow to like her), superior knowledge of the campus – which allows her to choose shorter trails than Keiichi, including passing through a women's dressing room where Keiichi won't dare to ride in case he decides to simply follow her… at least not until Urd drugs him – and Belldandy (assigned to help Sora to even out the odds), plus Skuld and Urd screwing up while they try to help Keiichi. Sora barely wins… but agrees to become NITMCC president anyway.

    • What makes this even more notable is the fact that the goddess' and other shenanigans eventually reduce Keiichi's vehicle to nothing more than a flat board with two wheels and a motor on it, and he has to ride it like a skateboard while holding the throttle like a buzzer to keep going. When he reappears after a lengthy absence, he does so by jumping a low wall and touching down right behind Sora. This by itself almost causes her to have a freak out less than a hundred meters from the finish - but she manages to pull together long enough to secure the win.
  • The broom race between Belldandy on String Fellow and Hild on Gluhen Des Herzen. Note that Gluhen Des Herzen is faster... But Belldandy is such a better racer than Hild that she and String Fellow hold their own until Gluhen Des Herzen (who is made for short races) has to slow down...
  • Hagall Arc:
    • Hagall taking over Hell, freezing Hild's main body in such a way only she can free her. The only way to force her to is putting into her the essence of Hild's fragment on Earth...
    • The first opponents for Keiichi and the Norns in Hell is Halval, a demon that has completely blocked light out of her room and can see sound-and Keiichi puts together a plan to defeat her: just unleash Gluhen Des Herzen, who, being supersonic, is effectively invisible to Halval.
    • Keiichi does it again with Thrym, who is so strong she can break everything with her supersonic fist, including lightning and Belldandy's singing, by taking from Urd a medicine that makes him incredibly fast and tricking her into hitting her room's gate: either the gate broke, meaning they could skip the fight, or her fist broke, and Belldandy could take her out. Even Thrym recognizes it was awesome (after breaking the gate: she's that strong), and, after bowing, helped Keiichi with the after-effects of the medicine (moving so fast caused enormous production of lactic acid and gave him immense cramps).
    • Mokkurkalfi versus Skuld in a robot battle. That is all.
    • Eihwaz's plan: weaken the goddesses with the fights just to make Belldandy vulnerable to have her energy drained after getting Skuld and Urd in another room, while holding herself hostage to keep Belldandy from just leaving (should Keiichi or Belldandy use their key to open the final gate, she would be killed by a curse). With her device being powered by Urd and Skuld's attempts at breaking out of the room they were sealed in. Had Mokkurkalfi not grown worried and broke down the gate early, she would have won.
    • When Keiichi and Belldandy arrive to Hagall it turns out that she wanted Bell to come to her, or at least to Eihwaz's room: she wanted to turn Belldandy into a demon from the start, filling her with demonic energy after draining her. And she came very close.
    • Hild's triumphal return. Hagall is trembling in fear as she arrives...
    • As the battle above happened, Urd too decided to finally go all-out and, after making sure Skuld could stop her in case she lost control, tapped into her demonic powers. That are comparable to Hild's. Cue easy break-out. And, as she feared, loss of control.
      • And Skuld stopped her: she activated her anti-proton bomb, that she estimated powerful enough to wreck all of Hell, and a device that created a barrier that could contain it, with Eihwaz, Mokkurkalfi, Urd and herself inside and announced it, with Urd coming back to her senses at the sight.
      • When Skuld told her what her means to contain her if she lost control, Urd replied she had underestimated her. She was right: Urd contained the blast in a small energy ball. It exhausted her demonic energy, but she did it-and used it to recharge her divine powers.
