The comic

  • Wesley's training. Beating up a bunch of gang members? Check. Then they steal a jet the next issue...
  • Even though it's not seen, the fact that the villains made a plan to take out the heroes; not only kill them but write them out of reality, and it WORKED is a pretty villainous awesome moment.

The movie

  • At the start of the movie, an assassin hurls himself face first through a glass window to the skyscraper rooftop across the street.
  • When Wesley initially starts training, he fails hilariously at most of his tests, including a particularly brutal one in which he's tied up and repeatedly punched in the face by the Repairman. One day, the Repairman beats Wesley so severely, he falls over bloodied all over and still tied to the chair. But rather than whimper and complain as has been his habit to this point, Wesley actually manages to free himself from the ropes, picks up the chair, breaks it over the head of his trainer, and then proceeds to beat his ass.
  • Wesley finally gets pushed to the limit by his big, fat, obnoxious boss and tells her off. And then he immediately tops it off by smacking his sorry excuse of a friend in the face with a keyboard, knocking out one of his teeth which goes on to spell "Fuck you" with the keys that come flying off.
  • The Big Damn Kiss Fox lays on Wesley in front of his bitchy ex-girlfriend which totally shuts her up.
  • Wesley's one-man siege on the Fraternity fortress. With exploding rats. During this scene, he shoots a guy through the eye, jams his pistol through the hole, and uses his body as a shield while continuing to kill.
  • The Good-bye bullet scene, courtesy of Fox.
  • "This is just a motherfucking decoy."
    • To sum up the final scene, Wesley managed to lure Sloan out into the open with a decoy and shoots him in the brain over several miles of cars and windows, his former best friend's energy drink, and his former boss's donut hole. He then proceeds to break the fourth wall, asking the audience, "What the fuck have you done lately?"
  • There are some moments from the game.
    • Most cutscenes in Weapons of Fate, right to the end when Wesley defeats the Immortal.
    • When Cross can't get a shot at the Immortal because the Immortal is shooting his bullets out of the air, he improvises by aiming down the barrel of the Immortal's gun.
      • More awesome is that while curving bullets is a core mechanic of the game, you can curve submachine-gun bullets, sending a bunch of them flying and exploding on your enemies.
