Top 10 Most Memorable Anime Moments

Some of the most memorable moments from Anime wither they were sad, epic or completely surprising.
The Top Ten
1 Goku's Sacrifice to Defeat Cell from Dragon Ball Z

Being the sore loser that he is Cell makes himself big in an attempt to blow up the earth, Goku doing the only thing he can do uses his teleport ability to transport Cell to another place but before he does he bids farewell to all his friends and his son Gohan, Cell blows up killing Goku as well as destroying King Kai's planet.

Sad and memorable at the same time.

I love you goku!

2 Sasuke's Heel Turn from Naruto

To see a great character being influenced by the 'dark side' was so interesting to watch. The build up to this felt perfectly natural. Up till this point, Sasuke only had one goal, to avenge his clan by killing Itachi, his older brother. To see his friend become exponentially more powerful than him was difficult for him to handle, with his superiority complex. Naruto had saved him from Orochimaru's giant snake summon. He had defended both himself and Sakura from Gaara. To add insult to injury, Itachi explained that the Akatsuki wanted Naruto in front of Sasuke, implying to Sasuke that his power was nothing compared to Naruto. Such a great moment.

This is probably the saddest anime moment ever in my opinion. Throughout the series they constantly argued, but when they finally acted like brothers, it made me feel so happy, it was so sweet. Then suddenly, Sasuke leaves village, and every one of their fights afterwards was like a punch to my gut. I was left crying silently to myself for so long...

It was the most anticipated moment I was waiting for! They were rivals, friends, like brothers. They were everything. Who doesn't like the final fight to be between the deuteragonist and the protagonist? And who often sees it ending in a draw! Breath taking moment!

Perhaps the most memorable and heart-throbbing scene from the entire series, not just the fight but the emotions portrayed in both the anime and original source manga make this such a memorable part of the Naruto franchise.

3 The Nina Tucker Indecent from FullMetal Alchemist

It's been years since I've seen it but dang..That sure was something..

This moment still haunts me to this day.

4 The Final Battle Scene from Cowboy Bebop
5 Envy Murders Maes Hughes from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

This scene tore my heart out, Maes was a loving, caring, and adoring Parent/Husband, and not only that was kind and considerate to those around him. And at the same time brave, smart, and determined. And seeing a personal favorite of mine go and an overall beloved anime character go is more than enough to make a few tears.

Huges discovers some shocking things going on in the military but before he can report to Mustang about what he finds he is attacked by Lust and Envy, he eventually makes it to an outside payphone and is confronted by Envy but before he can attack he's stopped by Envy who's transforms into his wife Gracia and shoots him.

6 Itachi's Reason from Naruto

I think these are better than any other anime but that is my opinion

"I am always going to be there for you, even if it is only as an obstacle for you to overcome...even if it means hating each other...that, is what big brothers are for."

7 Goku Becomes a Super Saiyan for the First Time from Dragon Ball Z

His hair turned golden and anime history was complete.

Absolutely this is the most memorable anime moment.

Should be at the top of the list surely...it was like a climax in anime

8 The Failed Transmutation from Fullmetal Alchemist
9 Kirito vs Heathcliff from Sword Art Online

Sao is just a good anime

WHY IS THIS 9TH it needs to be 1st or 2nd I cried every time watching this and still watch it

10 Keitaro and Naru's Epic Kiss Scene from Love Hina Again

The Newcomers

? James the Flaming Moltres from Pokemon
The Contenders
11 Susaku Disguises Himself as Zero and Kills Lelouch as Per Lelouch's Plan from Code Geass R2

Throughout all 52 episodes, you never quite expected the series to end in such an epic, emotional, near shakespearean way.

Very heart breaking moment...I won't never forget this moment.

12 L's Death from Death Note

This is where the series kind of restarted and truly started to race towards the climax.

13 The Final Moments of Episode 10 from Please Teacher!
14 Luffy Punches a Celestial Dragon from One Piece
15 Gohan Defeats Cell from Dragon Ball Z

Had so much build up and delivered an awesome fight.

16 Death of Jiraiya from Naruto

The death of Jiraiya is when Naruto graduates from a kid to someone who can take up the responsibility of the village's well-being. Being such a well-loved character and someone who gave life-lessons to us viewers too, Jiraiya's death hit me hard too. Especially the follow-up scene where Naruto sits with the popsicle and realises that he no longer has the person to share it with.

The sheer mention of it reinstalls the heartbreak of Naruto losing one of the only people arguably to have taken Naruto to heart as family from the get go. HEARTWRENCHING!

17 Gon x Kills x Pitou from Hunter x Hunter

The inner monologue that was going on in Gons head before he transformed was incredibly done.

When Gon turns to face Killua at the end... god damn!

I don't even need to

18 Aoi & Kaoru Reunite from Ai Yori Aoshi

In the very first episode Aoi meets up with Kaoru in order to help her find her long lost love, they finally get to the place with the address that Aoi had but finds nothing there upsett and distrought over this they return to his apartment she shows him a picture with the other boy and as it turns out Karou is the one she's been looking for all along.

19 Night Guy from Naruto Shippuden
20 Tanjiro Awakens his Breath of the Fire God against Rui from Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon Slayer

I don't know if I've ever watched something that made me SIMULTANEOUSLY enchanted by beauty, excited by the action, and moved by the emotion. No exaggeration, but I'm practically shaken - can't believe it.

This was a testament to how anime can be more than just a medium, but truly an art form.

This scene had so many emotions in me overflowing at once... This scene was the pinnacle of shonen. Absolutely breathtaking.

I get chills every time I watch this scene.

21 Sana Learns the Truth About Her Relationship with Rei from Kodocha

Since the beging of the anime Sana truly belived her manager Rei was her boyfriend but after a series of events involving Rei's ex girlfriend Asako Kurumi Sana learns that the whole thing was a lie she becomes so upset that she runs away and is helped out by of all people Akito.

22 Usopp Leaves the Crew from One Piece
23 Luffy vs Sanji from Whole Cake Island Arc

I couldn't believe what was happening when I was watching this scene. And Luffy's speech at the end... Just WOW! There's nothing like a captain's devotion to his nakama...

Oh yeah, that was intense to say the least.
