Courage the Cowardly Dog/Awesome

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Courage gets one in "Courage vs. Mecha-Courage", where he tanks Mecha-Courage's continual overwhelming physical assault until the latter's battery totally depletes.
  • "Ball of Revenge", where Courage screams his entire Rogues Gallery, and Eustace, into submission.
    • And afterwards, Muriel whacking Eustace on the head for starting the whole thing in the first place. He has never deserved it more.
  • "Rememberance of Courage Past", where Courage uses his trademark scream to subdue the mad doctor that shot his parents into space and was going to do the same to Muriel.
  • Muriel gets one in "A Night At the Katz Motel", where she saves Courage from being strangled by knocking out Katz in one shot.
  • Also counts at Crowning Moment of Funny, but the Snowman's song in Snowman's Revenge.
  • It might qualify as a Too Dumb to Live moment, but Eustace back-sassing the Spirit of the Harvest Moon in "House of Discontent". ("At least I got arms and legs! You don't even have a neck!")
  • Courage defeating the rats in The Nutcracker while dancing to The Trepak.
  • In the Quilt Club, after Muriel is sewed into the living quilt, Courage shows up hiding inside a box of memory quilts. The Stitch Sisters attempt to throw it away but Courage pops out roaring and pulls out red string while giving the villains not his usual frightened expression, but a look of pure anger, showing how pissed off he is for what they did to his beloved owner. He then quickly ties them into submission and twirls them around into the chair, leaving them to watch helplessly as he saves Muriel. A prime example of why you should never try to harm this dog's family.
  • In "Robot Randy", Randy traps Eustace and Muriel in a hole in the ground, covered by a stone block. However, he agrees to free them if Courage can beat him in a contest. A break-dancing contest.
  • In "Stormy Weather," a storm Goddess arrives at the farm searching for her lost dog. She mistakes Courage for her dog and tries to take him away, but Muriel isn't have any of it and argues with the Goddess about it for the entire episode. May not seem awesome on it's own, but this entire fight is going on while the Goddess has created a massive thunderstorm that completely destroys the house. Muriel spends most of it flying through the air, with only some string tangled around her boot keeping her from certain death and the longer this goes on, the worse the storm gets. Does that weaken Muriel's resolve or even phase her? Fuck no! Courage is her dog and nothing and no one is taking him from her. That is real love and determination right there.
  • Eustace gets one in Katz's Island; after the Bagges are stranded on the titular island Eustace and Muriel are turned into a wrecking ball and a washing machine respectively and forced to fight in an arena. As Courage (who willingly turned himself into a helicopter) rescues Muriel, Eustace suddenly notices that Katz is in his chair. He promptly flies into a rage and chases Katz around the island with the intent to kill him. I don't believe I've seen Katz so utterly terrified of someone or something before, but considering what he's like, he totally deserved it.
