Awesome / Code Geass: Paladins of Voltron

Go To

As is the case will all pages detailing Moments of Awesome, Spoilers Off

  • A perhaps understated one, but unlike the Paladins in Legendary Defender, the Student Council wins their first battle against the gladiator. True, most of them get defeated in seconds by the machine, but it says a lot that a team who had only four members experienced with combat defeated a machine that, in canon, defeated five people with full combat training.

  • Lelouch and Sendak's conversation in Tears of the Balmera. Not only is it a Call-Back to Lelouch's speech in the first episode of Code Geass, but unlike the Royal Guard, Sendak offers a rebuttal to Lelouch's statements.
    Lelouch: Let me ask you something, Sendak. Are there any Galra out there that detest their own empire. If so, how exactly would they live their lives?
    Sendak: They would spend what little remains of their lives in fear of the moment where I would inevitably find them. And when that happens, they'll be begging for death when I am done with them.
    Lelouch: What's wrong? Why not kill me? Your opponent is just a child. At least that's what Haxus thought before he died.
    Lelouch: Or perhaps you realize, that the only ones who should kill, are those who are prepared to be killed.
    Sendak: I couldn't agree more. Victory or death is the way of the Galra!
  • Lelouch's speech as Zero at the end of Rebirth is full of this.
    Zero: People of the Universe! Fear us or rally behind us as you see fit! We are the New Paladins of Voltron! We of the Paladins stand with all those who have no weapons to wield! Regardless of what planet or species they hail from! The Galra Empire cowardly attacked the inhabitants of Balmera X-95-Vox, and attempted to destroy the living creature itself! It was a wanton and meaningless act. Therefore they have been punished. Just as the Galra Commander Sendak was punished for endangering the populace of Planet Arus, we could not stand by and allow such cruelty to be carried out, and so we made him pay for his actions. We will not repudiate battle on a fair and level field, but neither will we tolerate a one-sided massacre of the weak by the strong! The only ones who should kill are those who are prepared to be killed! Wherever oppressors abuse their power by attacking those who are powerless, we shall appear again! No matter how mighty, how formidable our foe may be! Those of you with power, fear us! Those of you without it, rally behind us! We, the Paladins of Voltron, shall be the ones who stand in judgment of this universe!
  • The Paladins make their return to Earth in Chapter 23, and it becomes apparent why Voltron is feared by the Galra: they defeat the entire Britannian attack on Narita without breaking a sweat. Highlights include:
    • Rivalz using Polaris to freeze the majority of Darlton's squad.
    • Kallen using Aka to devastate the purists, including killing Kewell.
    • Suzaku going toe to toe with the Lancelot while the latter is being piloted by a member of The Knights of the Round and holding his own.
    • Lelouch completely trouncing Cornelia, in the process becoming the first person to ever defeat her in battle.
    • And of course, the finale: the Paladins unite to form Voltron and totally demolish the Britannian Army, following it up with Lelouch, once more appearing as Zero, delivering Britannia an ultimatum - surrender or be destroyed.
  • From Chapter 26:
    • The Paladins outmatch and destroy all of Cornelia's forces with ease...
      • Except for Nonette, who fights Suzaku to a standstill.
    • When it appears that Lelouch, Sayoko, and Nunnally are doomed, Lelouch mentally reaches out to the Black Lion for help, who rushes in for the rescue!
  • Chapter 28 has the rescue of C.C. from Mao, and here, it's a team effort instead of just Lelouch working on his own.
    • First off, Milly distracts Mao by using Rover to imitate Lelouch and keep Mao's attention on her.
    • Then Lelouch and Rai show up, alongside a police force.
    • And finally, as the duo leave with the Code Bearer, they chide Mao for how small minded he is - after all, if he'd used his powers to the fullest extent, he would've known that Zerith could turn invisible.

How well does it match the trope?
