Awesome / Digimon Tamers

  • When fighting Indramon in the city, Takato uses a homemade blue card to digivolve Growlmon to Wargrowlmon. The first thing he does is destroy the giant horn thats been kicking their ass the whole episode and then he blasts Indramon point blank with an Atomic Blaster across the city. The scene can be a considered a Godzilla Shout-Out with Wargrowlmon roaring in victory.
  • Goliath Activate! Cue Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Rika had plenty of Crowning Moments after she joined the main crew
    • One example? Renamon is losing a battle with Harpymon. Rika wants to help Renamon, but she left her cards at home. What does she do? Pick up a stick and STAB HARPYMON IN THE BACK!
    • Then there was the time when Renamon was fighting Vajramon. The Ox Deva wanted Renamon to join him and the other Devas, but Rika din't lose faith in her partner. Cue Matrix Digivolution!
    • And let's not forget the first time she and Rena biomerged into Sakuyamon. All it takes is a little trust, and a Leap of Faith...
      • And let's not forget that, during that pivotal moment, her opponent at the time was the D-Reaper! And in addition, they're the first Tamer/Digimon duo to do battle with it without cards. For reference, Baihumon, one of the Digimon Sovereign, had been pushing the D-Reaper back with all of his might, and it was starting to take a massive toll on his body. Then here comes the Digimon Queen, Biomerging at the perfect moment and driving away the D-Reaper for just that extra little bit longer. Rika and Renamon literally do God's work!

    • When the D-Reaper attacked the Real World, it was Rika that repeatedly saved her friends' hides. And that specific D-Reaper agent? Even RYO needed help to defeat it!
    • Combining with a Heartwarming Moment, Rika decides to go out of her way to search for Impmon. You know, the Digimon that KILLED LEOMON?! Even after all Impmon's done to her, it shows that Rika still cares about him.
    • Finally, the first stage of her Character Development. When Renamon is on the verge of losing to Dokugumon, Rika ultimately stands her ground and calls out for her partner. Her compassion allows Renamon to digivolve into Kyubimon for the first time. And it was then that Rika began to thaw out of her cold-hearted personality.
    • The 2018 drama CD revealed that Rika grew up to become a freestyle motocross rider. It's the first time a girl in Digimon didn't end up growing up to do something stereotypically feminine, and not only is it awesome, it suits her competitive nature perfectly.
  • The battle between Gallantmon and Beelzemon. After Guilmon finally came down off his Deadly Upgrade, he and Takato pulled off a miracle and spent the entire next episode throwing down with Beelzemon using attacks powerful enough to level the scenery. The first evolution of Gallantmon could easily count as one of franchise's best moments considering Takato recovered from his fear and he was the first human who merged with a Digimon. Megagargomon vs. Zhuqiaomon qualifies as well.
    • Beelzemon vs Gallantmon has one specific scene that stands to mind. Gallantmon (Dukemon) does The Slow Walk (a la Gohan while sounding like a giant mecha) out of (his own) flaming inferno, dons his cape (putting out the fire behind him) and declares that the devas are no match for him as he is charging his attack. No more words needed.
    • Guilmon and Terriermon got another moment soon after said battles. When the Big bird turned out to be not quite dead, our heroes were completely screwed. The kids were protected only by waning shield while Zhuqiaomon was bearing down on them. Guilmon and Terriermon nodded at each other and then proceeded to "jump out of the shield" to take on a beast that neither of their highest digivolutions could kill to save the others.
  • Gallantmon Crimson Mode.
    • "Do you want to fly, Gallantmon?"
    • Specifically, when Gallantmon Crimson Mode punches the most powerful Agent in the stomach and kills it. Bear in mind that the entity that this agent belonged to was feared by the Digital World's version of gods.
      • "WE DO DESERVE TO EXIST! (punch) YOU DON'T! (fatality)"
    • Crimson Mode is even better in the manhwa adaptation. In the anime, once it breaks through the Mother Reaper's last defenses, Takato and Gilmon have to split to get to Juri. In the adaptation, nothing's powerful enough to keep Crimson Mode outnote , well demonstrated when he splits the Mother Reaper in two, bisecting it vertically and snagging Juri safely out of the air.
  • Jeri Katou has two Moments of Awesome in the Orochimon episode. First, she tells her Digimon partner Leomon "Don't worry about me! I can deal with drunkards!" when she's being kidnapped by Orochimon himself. Later, when her friends come for her and Leomon fights Orochimon, she reveals that she has a very rare LadyDevimon card and uses it perfectly despite this being her first real battle, letting Leomon finish Orochimon.
    • One that overlaps with Tear Jerker is when she goes up to Gallantmon when he's about to kill Beelzemon (as punishment for killing Leomon, her partner) and stops Gallantmon from doing so, since she doesn't want more Digimon to die and knows that nothing will bring Leomon back to life..
    • Finally snapping out of her Heroic BSoD and standing up to the D-Reaper.
    • Heck, just surviving and moving on after all she's been through makes her infinitely awesome in the end.
  • Despite the fact that it was the entire reason for him being introduced in the first place, Dobermon sacrificing himself to give the Tamers the ability to Biomerge in the Real World. Also, Alice sticking with him even though she knew how it would end counts.
  • Impmon's CMOA is after his Heel–Face Turn, when he runs to help the main characters in the fight against the D-Reaper, armed with nothing but a toy gun given from his twin Tamers. His sheer determination to help them in order to somewhat atone for what he did allows him to evolve all the way to Beelzemon Blast Mode, and he nearly dies in a desperate attempt to rescue Juri so that he could forgive himself for killing Leomon.
    • "What I did... is beyond forgiveness. I don't need anyone to tell me that. No matter what I do, I can't change the past. But what I can do... is save Jeri! And lemme tell ya, no talkin eyeball's gonna stop me!! CORONA DESTROYER!!"
      • The manhwa takes it even further. In the anime, Blast Mode finally defeats the first Pendulum Feet agent by attacking its Achilles' Power Cord. In the adaptation, Blast Mode shoots the damn ghost in the face and vaporizes it.
  • Henry's father Janyu Lee deserves a mention for demonstrating true martial arts in the episode "Boar Wars". He's so fast most missed it. Trully a hidden Badass Bookworm, with a labcoat to match!
  • In the dub of episode 26, which, by the way, was named Kazu and Kenta's Excellent Adventure for added awesome, Jijimon and Babamon sound and act a LOT like Miracle Max and his wife from The Princess Bride.
  • Terriermon gets one for being the first—and so far only—partner Digimon to be the first to evolve, while not being the main hero's partner.
  • Guilmon gets a few moments:
    • In the 3rd episode seeing his fights with Renamon. He is entirely unaffected by Renamon's Diamond Storm, just standing there ignoring it. Later episodes show Renamon defeating Champion level Digimon with the same attack.
    • His fight with IceDevimon definitely qualifies. After Kyubimon suffers a defeat, Guilmon gets a boost from Takato's Modify cards, and slams IceDevimon's head into the ceiling then blowing him to pieces with Pyro Sphere. The victory is even sweeter seeing IceDevimon's arm hit the ground before dissapearing.
  • Wargrowlmon defeating Vikaralamon.
    • Once Takato realizes Guilmon will always be the same regardless of how powerful he becomes, Takato begins channelling power to Wargrowlmon. Wargrowlmon breaks free from the power orb holding him down the whole episode and charges Vikaralamon, tearing through another power orb in the process. He grabs Vikaralamon by the tusks and begins pushing him back, a pig larger than all the buildings around him. Then after the other Tamers Digimon perform some clean up control, he flips Vikaralamon over and finishes him off with Atomic Blaster.
  • Zhuqiaomon gets one when he's the only Digimon seen in the Digital World fighting the D-Reaper days after the Tamers left the place.
    • There were originally dozens of Mega level Digimon ready to fight the D-Reaper which includes replicas of Big Bads from previous seasons Metalseadramon, Machinedramon and a few Diaboromon. None of them were seen after that.
  • Grani on a constant basis.
    • When he shows up in the Real World and him and Gallantmon kick the D-reaper's ass their first time.
    • Yuggoth Blaster!
    • Finally, Grani's Dying Moment of Awesome. You know the one.
  • Calumon:
    • Shining Digivolution!
    • His You Are Not Alone moment with Jeri in which he actually talks her out of her Heroic BSoD that she's been having for the past several episodes! What makes it extra awesome? He pretty much talked Jeri out of committing suicide!
  • A Big Guy, Little Guy moment when Impmon and Calumon team up to save Jeri in episode 46. Calumon rushes to find Jeri while Beelzemon acts as The Big Guy against the D-reaper agents in their tag team.
  • The 3 Tamers bio-merging to Mega level for the first time in the Real World. They're able to put aside their worries to fight for a cause and kick some D-reaper butt.
  • Takato and Guilmon's last bio-merge digivolution to Gallantmon before setting out to the final battle with the D-reaper. He jumps on Grani and gives a final goodbye to his parents not to worry. Even his parents think he looks awesome.
  • The monster makers final plan to defeat the D-reaper. To devolve the D-reaper they installed Juggernaut into Megagargomon to use in the D-reaper's weak spot. But in order for Megagargomon to pull it off he had to create a spin faster than the freaking speed of light! He does...
  • Speaking of Terriermon, he performs a CMOA when he goes from being at death's door during his fight against Zhuqiaomon to a knock out victory after Biomerge Digivolving with Henry/Jenrya, all while making smartass insults to his opponent.
    Zhuqiaomon: You Dare Insult ME!?
    Megagargomon: Yeah! And we'll insult you again!
  • Dukemon in the Japanese version goes from being an adorable goofball as Guilmon to a Hot-Blooded, noble warrior with a deep and commanding voice. This characterization made his scenes all the more impressive, especially the Beelzebumon fight.
    • This is especially evident as Guilmon and his evolutions are voiced by none other than Masako Nozawa, the Japanese voice actress of Goku and his sons. While Guilmon first sounds like a combination of child Goten and Gohan, as he evolves more and more he sounds like adult Goku, culminating in Dukemon where he sounds almost exactly like Goku as a Super Saiyan.
  • Everyone shout it with me now: EVOLUTION!!
    • Or pretty much whenever the "Slash" or "EVO" theme songs start playing.
    • Or when "One Vision" plays after the Tamer and his/her partner Digimon finished their Fusion Dance into their Final forms. EPIC does not do it justice.
    • The dub shouldn't be underestimated, either: BIOMERGE DIGIVOLUTION!!
  • Marineangemon, despite being possibly the tiniest and cutest Mega Digimon ever, manages to scare an Eldritch Abomination that later goes toe-to-toe with Gallantmon Crimson Mode and pull off a Big Damn Heroes at the same time.
  • Rika telling off her mother in episode 18 for taking her to the camera test is this as well. To be honest, the latter deserved it because she forced it on her in the first place.
    Rumiko: I hope you're pleased with the way you acted today. I want to talk to you about the camera test.
    Rika: (points to herself) I don't. All those flashing lights must have...given me a headache.
