Warning: Unmarked spoilers below.
- When Haken orders his land battleship Zeit Krokodil to do a frickin' jump over to the Einst dimension.
- At the end of the final fight, the Big Bad begins regenerating for another go when Haken leaps in and interrupts it with a well-placed Last Showdown. Doubles as a Shout-Out to Namco × Capcom, as Reiji and Xiaomu perform a similar feat against that game's Big Bad.
- The Zeit Krokodil tackles the Giant Marquis, an entire city built on top of a masoleum, mounted on tank treads — and it wins!
- Haken absolutely refusing to suffer a Heroic BSoD, skipping the melodrama and going straight to the "World of Cardboard" Speech...then finding a way to turn it into a boob joke.
- In the (sadly un-localized) sequel, shortly after Axel joins, Aschen gets Brainwashed with Pete's Code PTP and was about to activate Code ATA (Ashes To Ashes). This triggers bits of Axel's memory of a previous rescue for Aschen's "sister" Lamia Loveless and he manages to re-enact the scene...''while still an amnesiac''.
- The whole final encounter with Pete Pain is one big CMOA for Axel.Pete: You won't be able to proceed any furter W07, and you too Haken W00!Axel: Hey, Haken...Can it be?Everyone: WHAT? Haken W00?? So he's not human?Haken: Hold down your horses. I'm a test-tube Baby, that's what he's talking about.Axel: Haken is from the W-series? W00?Alfimi: What is wrong Axel?Axel: I'm almost there.
Axel: Are you really sure about this ? You're gonna die just being a puppet. If your creator knew this, he or she would be so sad.Pete: Heh...If you do meet the person who created me someday, then please give her the following message : Thank you for creating me, for giving me life, Mistress Lemon.Axel: LE...MON?
- Then after the battle Pete pulls a HeelFace Turn and decide to pull a heroic sacrifice to destroy the big wall preventing everyone from proceeding.
- Then after Axel goes silent, Kouta notices his friend is didn't talked for a few minutes. He asks what's the matter. Neige asks too what was he was talking about with Pete. Axel answers:" Nothing, Nothing at all." with his usual sad face. He just remembered Lemon, and he probablt just remembered she's dead.
- And at the end, when everyone returns in the original worlds.
- Haken says Axel and him will meet again when their paths crosses again.
- Doubles as Heartwarming too of course.
- Then it becomes a promise he and Aschen fulfill in The Moon Dwellers.
