The Movie

  • Wolverine getting his adamantium skeleton and claws, while cool in itself, is nothing compared to the following scene of him overhearing Stryker's plan to erase his memory, and proceeding to burst out of the water roaring in rage, claws extended, and his extremely toned muscles articulated by the dramatic lighting, scaring the crap out of everyone else present.
    Zero: I think he heard you …
    • Another one: after reeling back from Zero's quick headshot, he just turns back showing the uselessness of bullets against adamantium, once that happens you know asskicking is going to happen, Zero's Oh, Crap! face says it all.
  • Wolverine killing a helicopter with his claws. And then killing Zero by walking away and letting his claws spark against gravel, thus igniting the leaked fuel... Cue Unflinching Walk. Just plain beautiful.
    • He also gets one later on when fighting Sabretooth after being reinforced with adamantium, owning him beautifully and mocking him while he does so.
    • Wolverine and Sabertooth teaming up in the final battles.
  • Sabretooth gets one when he's taking a beating from teleporting mutant John Wraith (which is a CMOA for Wraith). Sabretooth smiles and says "You know, John, there's something I always wanted to tell you..." Then he reaches out to where he knows Wraith will be next, grabs him by the spinal column as he materializes, and finishes with "You're predictable." Spine-breaking ensues.
  • Wade Wilson gets his own CMoA scene. The future "Merc with a Mouth" walks into a room full of armed Mooks, swords spinning to block bullets from either side, and proceeds to whoop ass. The best moment has to be when he sees that a mook is about to take a shot at him (via a reflection on one of his sword), spins around as the shot is fired, and cuts the bullet in half. The two halves end up killing two mooks behind him.
    Wade: Okay, people are dead.
  • Silver Fox psychically telling General Stryker to "Walk until his feet bleed".
  • Logan and Victor's Back-to-Back Badasses stand against Deadpool.
    • Followed by a solid minute of nothing but Deadpool beating their asses until they figure out how he fights.
  • Frederick Dukes vs. a tank. Nothing can stop the Blob!
  • When Wolverine turns down Stryker's offer.
    Wolverine: I'm Canadian.
  • James and Victor's Bash Brothers moment in the opening. The opening sequence is a badass Montage through The American Civil War, World War I, World War II and The Vietnam War! Complete with Awesome Music. See for yourself.
    • Special mention should go to the time when Logan double headshots two soldiers at the same time. Eat your heart out Deadpool!
  • Agent Zero
  • Logan's Screw This, I'm Outta Here! moment when the Weapon X team is ordered to kill innocent villagers to obtain adamantium.
    • Similarly, stopping Victor's indiscriminate firing on the ground below by redirecting the helicopter.
  • Victor's epic "Facing the Bullets" One-Liner.
    Victor: Wake me when it's over.

How well does it match the trope?
