Just one of many crowning moments of epic.

Ulala's had some pretty awesome events in her time. It's only right that they should be documented.

As a Moments subpage, all spoilers are unmarked as per policy. You Have Been Warned.

  • Taking on Evila for the first time will have any person grinning from ear to ear. That is, if they're not busy tossing their controller.
    • In fact, pretty much everything about Evila is awesome. from her amazing stage music, to her clothes' design, her stage, and for some really technical people, her pattern. Not to mention the fact she technically comes back as Giant Evila, the literal Big Bad.
  • Dancing Purge. You're finally taking Purge on in a one on one battle, and he reveals his Super Form just for Ulala. It's a short yet really addictive battle.
  • Pretty much every boss fight, but Kin Kon Kan is an incredibly notable example.
  • Fuse sacrificing himself to save Ulala was in many people's opinion, his Crowning Moment of Awesome. Up to then, he was just a jerk who'd snap at Ulala if she messed up. In Report 4, it's shown that he's a Jerk with a Heart of Gold that really cares for Ulala.

  • In the climax of the final chapter of Part 1, Blank cuts out the music, leaving Ulala helpless to counter his attacks. In response, everyone that Ulala's helped so far gathers to sing an acapella version of the game's theme. The Blank Dimension gets deployed, thrusting Ulala into a trippy but beautiful dimension against Blank's Humongous Mecha, but the masses rally behind her as the BGM grows into a Crowd Song. When Ulala breaks out of the Blank Dimension, the fight's no longer just Blank against Ulala, but Blank against everyone in the game.
  • In Part 1, you get to save (Space) Michael Jackson. In Part 2, you get to battle, fight alongside, and then control MICHAEL JACKSON! This was Michael's final video game appearance, and it couldn't have been a more fitting farewell.
  • The epic guitar battle with Pudding in Part 2. See for yourself.

  • Noize himself. He pilots the Astrobeat Jr., plays drums, pilots said Astrobeat Jr., out of an exploding studio pretty quickly, ends up becoming Ulala's boss until her real boss, Fuze revealed himself to be Not Quite Dead, all while generally keeping his cool.
  • The end of Part 2. Everyone's belief in Ulala gives her a second wind, and she uses music power to transform into a magical girl. Purge increasingly loses his cool, as he thought he'd won, but Ulala is now deflecting his One-Winged Angel form's lasers instead of dodging them, and she successfully rescues President Peace, who uses his singing voice to turn the tide against Purge further. Finally, a desperate Purge fires his Ballistic Groove Cannon, but the music power of everyone else reflects the blast back at Purge, destroying his space station and sending him to the farthest reaches of space, putting an end to his evil plan.

How well does it match the trope?
