Literally throwing your fists and using your hair as helicopter blades in Rayman was pretty cool. Probably my favourite 2d platformer that i own.

Marios tail spin was also pretty good from mario 3 not sure if ive seen a racoon/plumber spin move in any other franchise.

I've always found Rayman to be funny, for instance where he beats the bug and it cries but they become allies :D I'm surprised Wario hasn't been mentioned yet, he is hilarious :lol:

Punching a naked guys clothes down from a tree so he could come out from a bush i allways thought was pretty funny but then i was about 12yrs old when i first played it. :lol:

Mind-controlling the enemies in Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is pretty cool.

Skullmonkeys had the greatest screen clearing weapon of any game ever: the Universe Enema. Klaymen would suddenly swell from this scrawny little fellow into this hulking bruiser for a moment when he announced he was using it. Classic.

Wow 2 pages and no Ristar!! It was like bionic commando on steroids combined with rocket knight.

And the spindash is a classic. Instant speed.

The grabbing and throwing in mischief makers was pretty cool.

Vectorman's shooting to gain air was sweet.
