Awesome / Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid

Go To

  • Chapter 15: Teana follows her StrikerS Sound Stage X moment up when she and Nanoha BOTH use Starlight Breaker on the field. The resulting conflict destroyed almost all parts of the battlefield. In the end, Nanoha is defeated and Teana's still standing! In Nanoha's defense, Teana was still at full health (2500 points) when the exchange occurred, and only barely survived it. Nanoha had less than half that much health. Still an epic moment all around though.
    Sein: "...What's this? Ragnarok? Armageddon?"
  • Corona and her entirely new style of fighting by making golems and then using said golem to Rocket Punch One-Hit KO against Rio AND Lutecia and all they can do is stare stupidly. Freaking awesome!
    • Taken to new levels of awesome during her tournament match with Einhard. Everyone was expecting one or two good moves from her before being beaten by Vivio's official rival but ended up being quite the contrary, Corona has the upper hand and is delivering a sound beating to a shocked Einhard. Even if she ultimately lost, she not only came within a single blow of defeating Einhard both rounds (with the first round ending in a literal saved-by-the-bell moment), but she was also the first competitor to last more than a single round against her. This also apparently contributed to Einhard's later defeat by Sieglinde; none of her prior matches lasted long enough for the champ to get much of a read on the Hegemon.
  • Miura defeating Micaiah with Sword-drawing: Starbright Blade; a kick that apparently utilizes "breaker magic". Which basically makes it the kicking equivalent of Starlight Breaker.
    • Miura vs. Vivio's match was an example of epic for both competitors. The exchange of blows throughout displayed an example of essentially two Lightning Bruisers pummeling each other. And surprisingly, Miura wins despite suffering three concussions, each worse than the last. Miura defeated not only the main character, but a character who gave Einhard a challenge!

  • Victoria vs. Chantez, period! The little nun displayed an amazing variety of unique combat techniques that even include freakin shadow clones of herself! She even gains the upper hand for a moment. But the mighty Thunder Emperor didn't disappoint, showing high proficiency in blocking and responding to Chantez's attack finally culminating with a crushing victory over the little prankster. Such strength and fortitude may qualify her as the first consistent Mighty Glacier of the franchise.
  • Erio actually manages to get the drop on Fate just as she switches to Sonic Form, dealing a pretty critical blow... and ruining her outfit, for added points.
  • From the moment she was introduced, Einhard Stratos has spent most of her time doing awesome things. To date, she defeated Nove in a street fight though her loss was intentional, returned Nanoha's Excelion Buster by PUNCHING it back to her and taking down Corona's Goliath twice: the second time by actually sending back the Rocket Punch that took out Rio and Lutecia during the mock battle/training camp. We can only expect more from the descendant of Claus Ingvalt.

  • Rio vs Harry. When one of the opening attacks for a fight involves ripping off a chunk of the arena to throw at your opponent. You know it's going to be awesome.
  • Sieglinde Jeremiah was, from her first appearance, touted as a two-time winner of the DSAA and was supposed to be seen as unstoppable. Then we see her fight on-screen and she throws the Informed Ability trope right out of the window with a vengeance by subjecting Einhard to a Curb-Stomp Battle.
    • She follows this up in Chapter 48, displaying how strong she is by breaking out of Fabia's prison jar while naked, while other fighters such as Rio, Micaiah and Einhart were captured, then sweeping whatever the Witch girl throws at her with ease.
  • The first part of Wilfried Jeremiah's notes describes Wilfried's first meeting with Olivie, saving her carriage from bandits. That's not the awesome though, the awesome is when Olivie takes out a hidden sniper with a rock, without her arms And then she invites Wilfried to join her in taking out the rest.
  • A blink-and-you-miss-it CMOA for Teana in the anime adaptation: in episode 2, she briefly conjures up her employee ID card, which clearly states her mage rank as "Ground-S". That's right: flying under everyone's radar, Little Miss Striker has surreptitiously become the newest ace of the Bureau. What's more, she is the first S-ranked ground mage in a series that had, until then, reserved that rank for flying powerhouses like Nanoha, Fate, Signum, and Zest.
  • Vivio gets a minor one in her 2nd battle with Einhart in Episode 3. Vivio acknowledges that she's probably going to lose (and she does), but decides to give it her all and try to get in at least one hit in anyways. She gets several hits, makes Einheart question how this could be the same girl she easily defeated last week, and has to be taken down by one of Einheart's special techniques. And even after the match ends, Einheart is dazed due to one of Vivio's punches having a delayed effect.
  • Chapters 58-61: Vivio vs Einheart. ALL OF IT. And Vivio actually wins.
  • Chapter 65: Einhart vs. Harry in an arm-wrestling match. Right off the bat they both go full throttle, unleashing enough power to set off a shockwave, neither competitor willing to give an inch.
    • The first one to finally give out and end the match? The table! Nobody wins!
  • Corona's battle in Chapter 72 against the guardians of the Trial of Heart, where she debuts her Meist Arm Vanguard Shift. She wipes them out in a single volley, showing just how powerful her Meist Arts are becoming.
  • The end of the brief battle between Einhart and Nove in Chapter 74, when Nove unleashes Einhart's Signature Move, the Dankuuken/Sky-Severing Fist. Despite having no training in the Kaiser Arts, let alone the ancestral knowledge of them, Nove's execution of the move puts Einhart's completely to shame.
    • This lesson was clearly taken to heart, as during the battle in Chapter 85, Einhart, a relative unknown in the DSAA, unleashes the Dankuuken's full power and, even with a (Crash Emulated) broken arm, one-shots Edelgard Balkas, the Under-15 division's reigning champion! It wasn't a title match, but it was the first of many victories for the Hegemon's rise to stardom over the coming chapters.
      • Also doubles as a Heartwarming Moment: Claus' desire for the world to recognize the power of the Kaiser Arts is finally starting to come to fruition.
  • At the very end of Chapter 82, Nanoha's preparation for the fight with Vivio pretty much destroyed all the buildings in the training grounds. It really goes to show how strong Nanoha really is, despite being in recovery.
  • Ixpellia fully waking up in Chapter 90 is this because it was believed her Convenient Coma would last 10 years at the earliest... she woke up after just one!
  • Chapter 97: The last time Nanoha struck her with a full-force Starlight Breaker (which, remember, was dampened by the Saint Cradle's anti-magic tech), Vivio remained conscious and even got back on her feet. This time? It only burns off most of her Barrier Jacket, after which she immediately goes back on the offensive and nails Nanoha with an Accel Smash barrage!
  • Chapter 98 had two in particular:
    • First, the reveal that the Breaker didn't destroy Vivio's Jacket; she intentionally detonated it to blow the Breaker away and create the attack opening.
    • Followed shortly by the Cross Counter between Vivio and Nanoha, putting both down and de-powering Vivio's transformation.
  • And the finale of their battle in Chapter 99: Vivio, de-transformed due to the earlier hit, stands before the 10-count. Nanoha doesn't. While she admits that powering down would have been an instant loss in a DSAA match and that she would have forfeited if Nanoha had stood, Vivio takes a well-earned win...with the caveat that she wants a rematch so she can score a clean win next time.
  • Einhart's rematch in Chapter 101 with Edelgard. After a few tough exchanges, she demonstrates the true power of the Kaiser Arts and nails the champ with the Shin Dankuuken to end Edelgard's reign.


How well does it match the trope?
