  • Amaterasu proved himself a badass for the ages when he opened all Eight Chakra Gates and obliterated the Kyuubi of that world - and surviving the use of such a Dangerous Forbidden Technique. The sheer force of the attack took the Land of Waves with it. Oh, and before that? He killed Kisame and defeated Kitsune in one blow! And he's blind.
  • Kakashi, when he Took a Level in Badass and figured out how to use Susanoo - with it and the Rakiri, he killed the Raikage, A.

  • Kazama gets his moment when he vaporizes Orochimaru with his new Storm Flail technique while Orochimaru was in his true form and when a piece of him survives and tries to take over Kazama's body, Kazama stops him and finishes him off with an EPIC "The Reason You Suck" Speech that completely deconstructs him and destroys his soul!
  • Zabuza and Jiraiya vs Amaterasu. Go Zabuza.
  • Kazama utterly owning Yagura. And then stoping a complete Face–Heel Turn by rejecting Amatsu-Mikaboshi's offer to become a capital 'G' God.
  • Hanzo gets one by effortlessly killing Tsukiyomi TWICE!
  • The Samehada of all things gets one by being the one to kill Kitsune's Kyuubi by sucking away all its chakra from the inside out.
  • Itachi slowing down Kitsune's Kyuubi by using every jutsu he had ever copied at once!
  • On a meta example Kitsune's Kyuubi gets one by saving Naruko from Scrappy-status with a Mind Rape and Breaking Lecture.

  • Five shows how cunning he is in combat effortlessly manipulating Haku through her Stockholm Syndrome and taking advantage of Kuebiko carrying the Idiot Ball and almost killing them.
  • Good Orochimaru and Sasori defeating the FREAKING TEN-TAILS.
  • Mikoto saving Yugito and Mei from Amatsu-Mikaboshi and then stalling it long enough for its summoner (Hidan) to die.
  • Minato killing a summon with a single Rasenshuriken. Which he completed even without Sage Mode.
  • The Sage of the Six Paths PERIOD. He effortlessly destroys both Izanagi/Madara and Hashirama, after being resurrected at the very moment of his death.
  • The entire final battle against Susanoo. Especially the ending, where Kazama summons all of the friends and allies that he has made across the multiverse to aid him in defeating Susanoo's Edo Tensei Army, and in essence, delivers one massive Shut Up, Hannibal! to the ancient Uchiha.
  • Here are some more specific ones during the fights.
    • Good Orochimaru and Manda being Big Damn Heroes, and saving Haku and Mei from the Second Mizukage.
    • The Dark Wolf keeping up with the Third Raikage, and literally cutting him apart. The fight would have been over in less than thirty seconds if he wasn't a zombie.
    • Kuebiko getting his act back together after holding the Idiot Ball in the Dystopia arc and curbstomping Mu within a few seconds when he used his Time Master powers.
    • Yugito defeating the Third Raikage in a Single-Stroke Battle with a Plasma Breath that is literally a powered-up Bijuudama.
    • The Sage of the Six Paths proves just how powerful he is by taking on Izanagi and Hashirama. When both had the Rinnegan and Sharingan. At the same time. And he didn't even have to try to beat them into the ground. Izanagi literally had to make the moon start heading for the planet just to keep the Sage from utterly destroying him. The Sage then re-stabilized its orbit by himself.
    • Izanami burning Izanagi's eyes out then effortlessly shutting down his 'perfect' Edo Tensei.
    • Konan and Izanagi throwing meteors at each other.
    • Kazama destroys the the Demonic Statue of the Outer Part with his new Marebito jutsu.
  • Kamui's Dying Moment of Awesome.
  • The fight against Teikoku!Deidara and his allies. The Arashi managed to take out a guy who described himself as a walking volcano, and who qualified as such due to being a psuedo-jinchuuriki of the Yonbi, and his minions: a Sound!Naruto as fast as Minato with the Cursed Seal, and a Naruto who had stolen many of Konoha's clans ninjutsu who had modeled himself after the Joker.
  • The Dark Wolf, Konan, Yugito, and Teikoku's Mei managed to take on Pain/Nagato, after he had sealed all the biju save the Kyuubi inside him, and later turned into something resembling an Eldritch Abomination.
  • Teikoku's Orochimaru and Kabuto get one when they beat Karasu, Chibaku, and Haku offscreen. Later, they, along with Teikoku's Kushina and Mifune, mopped the floor with them, Inari, Izanami, Yugito, and Kitsune without even breaking a sweat.
  • The Red Zetsu managed to fight and defeat the Dark Wolf with his Corrupted Sage Mode, after sending his legions after her, Naruko, Sasuke, and Konan for days on end. If it wasn't for Tobi showing up to save them, he would have killed them all.
  • Say what you will about him, but the Warlord has apparently had many of these offscreen. He was apparently able to force a deity to retreat/destroy its anchor to the world alone, something the Arashi Clan had to struggle to do once, and was unable to do another time, as well as take on Kaguya Ootsutsuki and manage to scrape out a win, and it is agreed all of Teikoku that he is by far the most powerful member. His creation of the Relays to destroy several worlds at the same time, is also impressive, even though he doesn't exactly uses it for good.
  • Chapter 46:
    • Kazama destroys Konoha, arguably the most powerful ninja village all by himself. He takes down a Sannin, countless Jonin and Chunnin.
  • Chapter 53 has a fair few:
    • In Red Zetu's World Tobi and co recreate Canon Madara's asteroid attack to uproot the world tree. What makes this even more awesome is that Red Zetsu, who up till this point has been confident and in control freaks out.
    • Kazama and Memna face off against Obito who revels that due to the power of the Ten Tails, his real body has become a giant monster contained within the Moon. What follows is an aerial battle like something out of Asura's Wrath.
  • Chapter 54:
    • The Warlord finally fights Tobi, Konan, and Sasuke. At the same time. It turns out to be a shadow clone, and they still barely stood a chance. Then, when they've killed the clone, at the cost of Konan dying, he proceeds to Colony Drop two entire planets together to get rid of them.
  • Chapter 55
    • Yugito and Kitsune vs Edo Tensei Amaterasu.
    • Inari vs Teikoku Orochimaru. Inari quickly reminds readers exactly how powerful and dangerous he really is by giving Orochimaru the fight of his life ,while on his last legs and fighting with a serious handicap from a seal on his chakra. He also delivers a bitting "Reason You Suck" Speech deconstructing the rogue Sanin's motives and achievements driving Orochimaru into a howling rage.
    • When Inari is about to die Atlas and Chibaku join the fray and proceed to incinerate the bastard with Chibaku's new ace in the hole: artificially replicated bloodline limits.
    • Dark Wolf Vs Red Zetsu: despite having the power of the Kyubi on its side Red Zetsu simply can't match Dark Wolf. Dark Wolf demonstrates this by cutting a Tailed Beast Bomb in two rendering Naruko and Kurama speechless.
    • Naruko's Kurama sacrificing itself to burn Red Zetsu out of Naruko's body mortally wounding the sadistic monster.
    • Tsukiyomi travelling into the Void to save Kazama's soul from being devoured by Mikaboshi. Then pulling a Heroic Sacrifice using his soul and chakra as fuel to give back Kazama what he lost and more.
    • Before he dies Tsukiyomi gives a beautiful Kirk Summation / Shut Up, Hannibal! to Mikaboshi when it starts ranting about the futility of fighting it, this renders the Kami speechless.
    • The reborn Kazama proceeds to absorb Mikaaboshi's power while giving a Badass Boast reaffirming exactly who he is. This drives Mikaboshi into a complete Villainous Breakdown.
  • Chapter 55 is a parade of these moments, Highlights include:
    • Kazama using his new space time powers and Tsukiyomi's knowledge to completely destroy Obito.
    • Obito releases Kaguya out of spite in a desperate attempt to take Kazama with him. Kazama proceeds to wreck Kaguya so badly that she flat out describes him as a God of War.
    • Kazama finishes the battle by sealing a Mikaboshi possessed Ten Tails in a pocket reality. Using the power he stole from the Mad God.
  • Chapter 57
