  • Her blind Paper Mario LP had some noticeable moments:
    • In Episode 34, she goes to fight Anti-Guy. She's freaking out about him, because despite keeping herself sequestered from spoilers, she knows he's tough and is terrified of him. She beats him without taking any damage.
    • A similar thing happens with Kent C. Koopa, another Bonus Boss. She stumbles into the easy trick to beat him and once again crushes him into the dirt.
    • She beats Huff and Puff, who many consider that ONE boss due to his healing and ability to spawn Ruff Puffs, while drunk with using Lakilester and Power Jump.

    • Getting double star points from the first Bowser fight in episode 67.
  • She only lost one party member in her Oregon Trail LP.
  • Managing to keep the Twist Ending of Journey secret throughout the LP (by warning she would zealously defeat any attempts to post spoilers).
  • In her Pokemon White LP:
    • After struggling and losing two Pokemon in the battle against Lenora she manages to win...with Diarreahed (aka Pansear)
    • Also from this LP, her Audino Snuggltits manages to take down Ghetsis' Hydreigon despite being 6 levels lower and having a moveset without many strong attacks. While the battle was a defeat overall, its performance really stood out as a victory. Lucahjin even comments that no one can ever make fun of her or her Audino ever again because of how well it performed.
    • Lucah takes down Ghetsis with ease! She one hit KO's three of his pokemon. INCLUDING HYDREIGON! Donna probably could have taken on his whole team, but Lucah didn't want to beat Ghetsis' entire team with one pokemon.

    • From White's aftergame, Boobarel is the personification of Crowning Moment of Awesome.
  • A couple from the finale of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door:
    • After sometimes having bad luck with bosses throughout the game, Lucah beats the Final Boss relatively easily, despite having a glitchy controller that means she can't do jump attacks properly. This is partly because, after a whole game's worth of never getting three of a kind in the bingo pop-ups, finally getting one at the best possible moment note .
    • Also a meta one for her fans for managing not to spoil the ending of the game and the identity of the Final Boss, meaning Lucah has a genuinely shocked and impressed reaction to the concept.
  • The Ocarina of Time LP had pretty awesome moments:
    • In episode 26, she beat Phantom Ganon without taking any damage.
    • Then in episode 41 she easily beats Morpha after working out the trick to it, as well as going through the gauntlet to the boss door without much difficulty (much to guest commentator LiamSixx's annoyance).

    • For a blind run, Lucah does amazingly well on the Water Temple as a whole (well, except the Dark Link fight), even finding the two most well-hidden keys without any help from Liam.
    • In episode 56, she stumbles across a trick to beat the Iron Knuckles by exploiting Young Link having a too-small hitbox when he's ducking, astonishing guest commentator Tyler. The best part is, she wouldn't have discovered it if Tyler hadn't lied to her that the Iron Knuckle can break the Deku Shield, leading her to use the Hylian Shield instead. Tyler was actually trying to make the fight harder on Lucah by depriving her of a proper shield, but ended up making it easier.
  • In Super Paper Mario, she manages to finish the first Pit of 100 Trials (which she failed at in Thousand Year Door) and then quickly works out a trick with Luigi and Peach to curbstomp the boss of the area.
  • In Wario Ware Inc. she's delighted to find 9-Volt's challenge consists of old Nintendo games she grew up with, and proceeds to beat all of them without trying, not losing a single hit point.
  • Her HeartGold blind LP also had noticeable moments of awesomeness:
    • Correctly guessing in part that Wooper is based on an axolotl.
    • In episode 16, Lucah reveals she went through herculean effort to "fix" Jasper her Geodude after she inadvertently had gotten rid of Magnitude a few episodes earlier. She then one-ups herself by taking on Whitney's Miltank, the most infamous That One Boss in the entire Pokémon franchise, and beating it on her first try, without even having that much difficulty.
    • In episode 61, it took a lot of MooMoo Milk and panic on Lucah's part, but RickNMorty successfully defeats Will of the Elite Four all on her own.
    • The episode 104, aka the finale. Fresh off of beating Lance (and the Elite Four as a whole) for the second time in the last episode, Lucah takes her level 70 party to Mt. Silver for one last fight. Considering how much trouble the Elite Four rematches gave her, particularly Lance, one would expect several episodes of failure with Level Grinding Twitch streams in between before she is able to defeat Red's level 80+ party. She defeats him on her first try in what is practically a Curb-Stomp Battle. She only had one Pokémon faint, and it was at the very end.
  • The entirety of her Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney ended up being this, but there's some things to note:
  • Her Justice for All play through is shaping up to be this as well:
    • She almost immediately figured out how case 2-2 would turn out upon talking with Director Hotti (specifically the fact that it was Ini Miney who died in the car crash and not Mimi.)
    • In episode 23, she immediately realizes what happened with Léon just by seeing Maya sneeze.
    • Some people have commented saying that watching Lucah play through the near-universally loathed third case in the game have caused them to change their mind and start liking it. That's quite an achievement.
    • On top of that, she completes the case without receiving a single penalty the whole way through, including navigating Moe's testimony (generally considered to be one of the hardest segments in the original Phoenix Wright trilogy, if not the entire series) without any slip-ups.
  • Trials and Tribulations continues the trend:
    • The most noteworthy case of this is when she figures out that there are two Irises in case 3-5 long before Bikini touches on the subject. When Bikini does reveal this, Lucah outright states that it took all her strength and willpower not to throw the 3DS she is playing the games on across the room.
    • Regarding penalties: as of the time of writing this, she has only taken 9 penalties across all 3 games, with 3 coming from the first game, 5 from the second game, and 1 from the third game. Pretty amazing for a blind LP.
  • Her Banjo-Kazooie blind LP alongside ProtonJon has been filled with surprising things:
    • In Episode 8, she beats Mr. Vile's minigame on her first try. Without using the Running Shoes. Made monumentally more impressive by the fact that this is Lucah's first time playing the game and one of her first times playing a 3D platformer at all, so she regularly struggles to do even the simplest things just because she isn't used to the controls yet. Jon is suitably dumbfounded.
    • In Episode 17, after accidentally ground-pounding during the timed engine room challenge and nearly falling to her doom, she manages to recover in a way that needs to be seen to be believed. While she accidentally falls immediately after, it's still an utterly incredible bit of maneuvering, especially considering her aforementioned lack of experience with 3D platformers.
    • In that same episode, she gets the Jiggy (widely considered to be one of most difficult Jiggies in the game, if not the most difficult) on only her second attempt, reaching the goal with one second to spare.
    • In Episode 21, she makes a second impressive save, this time in Click Clock Wood, where she manages to recover from slipping off the roof of the treehouse by Flap Flipping mid-slide at the last possible moment.
    • She manages to collect every single Note, Jiggy, and Honeycomb Piece in the game with very little handholding or outright help from Jon.
  • In one of the very first episodes of Danganronpa, she manages to correctly guess one of the bigger twists of the game: that the Killing Game is being broadcast.
  • Non gameplay example, but almost as soon as she gets the Poketch in her Pokémon Platinum playthrough, she begins using the Memo Pad to create drawings of Pokemon to have on the bottom screen while she plays that range from very good to INCREDIBLY detailed. For a while, she even makes a new drawing Once an Episode!
