    Here some from TV tropes (at Bottom of this page- http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/CrowningMoment/Transformers)

    " * More "Crowning Moment Of Funny" than awesome, but related regardlessly. The main human companion in most Transformers shows usually winds up The Scrappy. Sari Sumdac of Animated, however, managed to avoid this, in no small part by making Optimus Prime need therapy◊.
    o There's also the episode "Sari, No One's Home" where she, an eight-year-old kid, takes on the Constructicons(who came for oil) alone in her home. After they break her cell phone, she holds a council of war with her teddy bear, then goes rollerblading in when they threaten her TV and hits Mixmaster in the shin with a hockey stick(it breaks and she runs like heck, though), then ends up using the ninja obstacle course shown earlier in the episode to smack them around till she gets bored, dumping them on the ground. Then she goes up to the very battered and surprised Constructicons.
    Sari: Man, you guys look beat. Need some oil?
    o Sari using her newly discovered robot powers to fight the space rock... ''thing''
    * Speaking of Optimus Prime? Kicking Megatron out the docking tunnel and letting him burn up in Earth's atmosphere in the first episode.
    * Prowl coming out of nowhere and popping a wheelie on Lockdown's face.
    Lockdown: I'm impressed. It's been eons since the last time anyone got the drop on me.
    Prowl: Next time will be much sooner.
    o Another Prowl Moment is when he gets the Samurai Armour from Lockdown. It's strange though, how he's more of a dick in Samurai Armour than he is as a Ninja, contrasting the general portrayal of "Samurai=honorable" "ninja=deceitful". The effortless way he takes down the Starscream clones, though, more than makes up for it.
    * When Starscream gives Megatron a pat on the back before he goes to take out the Autobots, "to wish him luck"... and plants a bomb on his back.
    Megatron: I do not believe in luck. (flies off)
    Starscream: Neither do I.
    o Animated Starscream gets his share. Try when he and his clone army blast into the Decepticon base. Every one of his clones gets a little moment to shine there (especially the sycophant, who singlehandedly brings down Prowl). But the real moment comes when his clones incapacitate Megatron as Starscream grabs his sword. "Oh, I've been waiting a long time for this!"
    + Starscream kind of gets a lot of these in Animated. For one, try when he single-handedly handed the Autobots their collective ass in "Transform and Roll Out".
    + Or when he, after discovering Megatron alive but helpless, started going on about how "Anyone could just walk in here and terminate you..." while preparing to finish what he started and kill Megatron once and for all. Bumblebee runs in, attempts to bring Starscream down, and gets laid out in seconds before Starscream yells at him: "You interrupted my speeeeeech!"
    * Shortly after getting his body back and singlehandedly owning the Autobots, Megatron promptly assembles the Decepticons and makes a speech about how he's going to get back at the one responsible for his humiliation. He takes aim at the Autobots and charges up his fusion cannon, then turns around and hits Starscream with the Allspark key, draining him of all of his energy.
    Megatron: [Holds Starscream in the air by the head until he finally goes limp, and then lets him fall like a sack of potatoes.] "Does anyone else have a problem with my leadership?"
    Blitzwing: "N-no, we're fine."
    o Then follows up by finally giving the Decepticons an equivalent of the famed "transform and roll out":
    Megatron: "Decepticons, transform and rise up!"
    + Which fits perfecty with how the Decepticans see themselves as La Resistance, rising up agiesnt their Autobot oppressors
    o Three Words:Starscream Death Montage.
    * Another Megatron moment He's had a spy in the Autobot Elite Guard for several decades. This spy is now head of Cybertron Intelligence. This spy is also Shockwave.
    * Bulkhead from Animated has the scene where he's watching TV, and then his kibble turns into a chair◊.
    o There's two when he fights Lugnut: when Lugnut flies toward him, he tackles him in midair, and later, he beats Lugnut's Punch of Kill Everything by using his wrecking ball to set it off while Lugnut's still speechifying, causing it to backfire on him.
    Bulkhead: "You talk too much."
    o Of course, any time The Punch works, it's a CMOA for Lugnut. Lugnut is usually left standing in a crater. Nobody else will still be standing.
    Blitzwing (Angry): "If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times... GIVE ME SOME WARNING BEFORE YOU USE THE PUNCH!"
    * Blitzwing icing up Bumblebee then overpowering Optimus.
    o In another scene he takes on the Autobot quintet singlehandedly, kicks their butts, and then stands back contentedly and watches them try to compose a new battle plan.
    + And then he proceeds to kick their butts again and only leaves when Megatron tells him to stop getting distracted on the way to work.
    * Ratchet's verbal assault on Lockdown when asked to numb Lockdown's pain with the EMP generator that he originally stole. And later, when he gets ready to take back the other parts he'd stolen from the Autobots:
    Ratchet: "Time was, I'd use my EMP generator to do this painlessly. Too bad I don't have it anymore..."
    o He then rips Optimus' grapplers out of Lockdown's arm.
    * For Grimlock it comes for when he transforms to dino mode, and scares Porter C. Powell shitless, grabs him by the leg, tosses him in the air and promptly swallows him. When he finally spits him out, he's covered in oil that completely ruined his suit.
    * One can't forget Animated Omega Supreme's first appearance, dramatically transforming in midair and proclaiming in a booming voice, "I am Omega SUPREME!" before beating the living crap out of a group of shocked Decepticons.
    o No forgetting the Heroic Sacrifice. He lets himself be sucked into a malfunctioning space bridge to save Michigan!
    * As much as their spotlight episode wasn't that great, the S.U.V. ganging up on Swindle and giving him a beatdown was pretty cool.
    * "I am Wreck-Gar! I am a hero!"
    o "I am Wreck-Gar! and I Dare to be Stupid!"
    * Blurr's epic race back to Cybertron, running in space, over planetary rings. Breathtakingly awesome. Too bad it was more or less his exit scene.
    * Ratchet asserting that Sari will not be used as a weapon and sacrificed.
    * Prowl mastering Processor-Over-Matter just in time stop Sentinel from being crushed by falling wreckage, which he stops in midair with the power of his mind. Even Jazz, the ostensibly superior Cyber-Ninja, is impressed.
    o Oh, and remember that kick-ass armor we mentioned above? Prowl gets it back. And keeps it.
    * "Wazzpinator cannot go offline... Wazzpinator have plans..."
    * Optimus Prime beating the crap out of Megatron with his own arm AS A HUMAN. Too bad it wasn't real...
    o And then right after that, "Autobots! Transform!" and going straight back to being a giant robot. Again, too bad it wasn't real...
    o Don't forget part 2, where Optimus takes and forces Laserbeak into his Guitar Mode and has an EXTREMELY epic musical battle with Soundwave's Keytar Ratbat, all ending with Optimus CUTTING SOUNDWAVE IN HALF WITH THE GUITAR, Man, Optimus is MADE of awesome. And this was real.
    * Wreck-Gar's entrance into the Substitute Autobots. "I am Wreck-Gar! I am a hero!"
    * The entire episode "Decepticon Air" was one massive CMOA for Optimus Prime. Basically by him doing his best Die Hard imitation.
    * Ratchet for putting Sentinel Prime in his place by getting Ultra Magnus' Hammer back from Shockwave, taking it with him to Earth, and bringing Jazz with him to stay.
    o Heck, Ratchet telling Ultra Magnus (and later Sentinel Prime as acting Magnus) exactly how unethical and generally dickish they were being counts as a C Mo A, because they sorely had it coming."

    Which was made all the more awesome by Bulkhead doing it and IT ACTUALLY WORKED!


    Omega Supreme's debut ranks as my favourite moment though, especially when the music in the background comes up and his voice booms out "I AM OMEGA SUPREME".

    When Oemga Supreme transforms for the first time into robot form is probably one of my favorite moments ever in any cartoon. That was pure awesomeness.

    Now all I need is a figure :(

    Blurr running halfway across the galaxy to get back to Cybertron. (Though Shockwave mercilessly owning him killed it for me.)
    Sari upgrading herself and showing us all how much off a badass she can be throughout Season Three. (Even though she was gone for five episodes. WTF?!)
    The birth of Waspinator in Predacons Rising.
    Wreck-Gar returning in Human Error: Part 2.
    Swindle's glorious return in Decepticon Air.
    Shockwave turning purple.
    Starscream finally getting his body back. (And then losing it again in Endgame: Part 1. Seriously, WTF?!)

    Blurr's last run...

    Jet Twins debut!

    When Starscream first attacks them (right after Ratchet has an 'oh noes!' moment)

    When the Starscream clones attacked the first time.

    When Perceptor and Wheeljack debuted/ Perceptor talked.

    OS going "I... am... Omega Supreme!" (I think it was more epic because I wasn't expecting it/ didn't know who he was)

    Season 1 - Megatron's resurrection

    Season 2 - nothing really sticks out from season 2. Maybe Wasp's first bit of Waspinator-like dialogue?

    Season 3 - Blurr running across the galaxy. Ratchet vs Shockwave was pretty epic too
