• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Astro Boy (2009 film)

  • After Astro is captured and deactivated, Dr. Tenma suddenly turns on Stone and, with Dr. Elefun's help, snatches the Blue Core so he can reactivate Astro, assure him that despite not being Toby Astro is still Tenma's son, and send Astro off to escape while Tenma and Elefun face the military. The interaction between Astro and Tenma makes this the Crowning Moment of Heartwarming too.
  • Astro defeats a coliseum full of robots, slows a falling island enough to minimize damage and casualties, and flips a skyscraper-sized baddie that has absorbed most of the air force's weaponry over his head. Astro is Badass Adorable, plain and simple.
  • Zog, the giant robot Astro revived, is about to crush Hammegg who wronged them underneath his foot. Hammegg protests that he can't, due to the laws of robotics, which have apparently been in use for 50 years. Zog, who was built far earlier than that (100 years), simply says:
    • The fact that he's voiced by Samuel L. Jackson probably made it far more Badass than it would be if it were anyone else.
  • The scene where Astro learns to fly and then spends a few minutes playing in the clouds, with the scene culminating in his iconic tunnel-through-the-mountain. Whatever your overall opinion of the movie is, if you didn't find this sequence thrilling something is wrong.
