Eureka Seven/Awesome

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Eureka Seven is chock full of Awesome Moments.

  • Holland has his in "Shout to the Top!", when he manages to take out a good portion of the Ginga by crashing his LFO straight into it and unloading his entire arsenal.
  • Dewey's moment occurs in the same episode, and firmly establishes him as a Magnificent Bastard. Magnificent enough to have his Awesome Moment be his suicide.
  • And Eureka has hers in "Morning Glory", flying alone on a refboard towards the Beams and a vast fleet of Federal aerocarriers for Renton's sake.
  • The entire last episode, "Wish Upon a Star", is Renton's CMOA.
    • Holland had an awesome moment too. It seemed like he was gonna go back to his old ways and beat up Renton for losing Eureka. Renton was depressed at the point where he was begging Holland to do it, but instead his yelling was less out of his usual ways and more out of Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! because he just found out Eureka is still alive.
  • Dominic, Anemone, and The END also get their respective CMOAs in "Ballet Mechanique".
    • Dominic freefalling out of the sky to try to save Anemone, clinging to a piece of wreckage and roaring her name at the top of his lungs. Weird for a CMOA since he's essentially helpless - yet still utterly dead-set on his goal.
    • Then we have Anemone abandoning her suicide mission and launching herself into the air to reach Dominic.
    • Finally, there's The END's dramatic Heel Face Turn: just when it seems like everything's over, The END suddenly turns white and begins moving on its own, shields Dominic and Anemone from a deadly blast, and basically redeems every evil deed it performed throughout the whole series over the course of a couple of minutes.
  • While opinion on The Movie is pretty divided, no one can really argue that the Nirvash Spec 4 fighting the Devilfish wasn't pure awesomesauce.
    • Speaking of Holland, he gets another one very early in the series. When a couple of thugs try to rape Talho, Holland pulls one of them off of her by grabbing him by the nose. When another thug tries to crush Holland and Talho with the foot of his pimped-out mech, Holland beats the guy up. He does so by running up the mech's arm, throwing the manual release for the cockpit, and then beating the crap out of the punk when the hatch opens.
  • Axel Thurston proves to be a Badass Grandpa of the highest order when he successfully rams an armored transport carrier with a forklift, blows his workshop up to slow down the military, then does a balls to the walls dash for a cliff so he can send the customized LFO board for Renton's mecha to him without panicking once.
  • During the penultimate episode, Holland and Dewey are fighting on the bridge of the Ginga, and it looks like Dewey is about to kill Holland, until he looks out the window and gets a wonderful Oh Crap face as Talho and Moondoggie stab the bridge of their ship through the bridge of the Ginga, sending Dewey flying across the room.
  • Renton's recovery after getting shot in the movie definitely counts. He doesn't quite recover until after his moment of awesome, but then again, said moment of awesome involves going from being bedridden and unable to even move, to causing the Nirvash to evolve into it's final form, rescuing Eureka from an EIZO attack, and then getting into a fierce battle with and defeating Holland piloting the Devilfish. Meanwhile, throughout all this, his wound has opened back up and he's slowly bleeding to death.
  • May be relatively small compared to Renton's other awesome accomplishments, but this troper was suitably impressed when he faced down Dominic in episode 13, blackmailed him into bringing him along to get help for Eureka by stealing the energy drive and muffler from his bike when he wasn't looking, and then didn't even blink when Dominic fired a shot into the ground at his feet to scare him.
