Super Sentai Crowning Moment Of Awesome 1: Jetman

What is a Crowning Moment Of Awesome? In the words of TV Tropes... this is the highest moment of the character. One moment that they will be forever remembered by doing something awesome (and not heinous). Super Sentai has a lot of these, so let's talk about it.

The first awesome moment I'm talking about is from Jetman, episode 20.

What is in the episode: A Dimensional Beast now is in the form of a Vacuum Cleaner is sucking the love out of brides. After a botched plan to lure the monster using Gai and Ako as the brides; that monster instead sucks the love out of a little girl that Gai has been a bit close for the episode. In a fit of anger, Gai tracks down the monster, and rather than waiting for his friends to help him finish the monster... he single-handedly beats the crap out of the monster, forcing it to enlarge. And he still even deals with the final blow to destroy the monster utterly.

Reasons of awesome: This is one of the peak of Gai's strength. With the exception of Ryuu, most of the time, the Jetman would need to be together to stand a chance. Not if Gai, being the lone wolf he is, is mad. There's a reason why Gai is considered one of the strongest Jetman, and this is why. Oh, and while he's beating down the monster, his own image song 'Honoo no Condor' is playing in the background, adding up the intense atmosphere of the battle. Oh and there's also the fact that Gai just transforms right off bat rather than having the Jetman's normal henshin sequence alone. That just reeks of bad ass.

Well that's about it for today's Super Sentai Crowning Moment of Awesome. Tune in next time when I deliver more crowning moments of awesome in Sentai

  1. What I'll always remember about this truly awsome moment is that Gai simply walks towards the monster, transforming in mid-stride, before attacking. And he does it Without doing any gestures or touching the Cross Changer. THAT is beyond awesome.
