- When the party fights a giant robot that they clearly don't stand a chance against, the formerly timid Lloyd shows up in a tank and blows it away. Not to mention Eve's Heroic Sacrifice against another one of those robots later.
- Ninten and Ness both get one in their respective games (Mother 1/EarthBound Beginnings and Mother 2/EarthBound) when they beat up crazed hippies. Yes, that's right. Among the Mother series' bizarre cast of enemies, our heroes have to face evil hippies. With toothbrushes. Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Funny.
- A meta example: After years of waiting, Nintendo has finally released an English version of MOTHER 1 under the name EarthBound Beginnings.
