It's so hard to pick tho
I'll narrow it down to a top 3:

1. TR4's ending where Lara gets buried.
2. Lara's first kill in TR13
3. "Where is my mother!!!???"

Might be a bit controversial: the whole ending sequence from Tomb Raider Legend, especially the part where we discover Amelia was talking to future Lara all along. Bonus points for the cutscene where Amelia first takes out the sword on following playthroughs, and you notice the muffled disembodied voices coming from the portal are Lara and Amanda in the future.

Edit: another controversial pick: Lara saying goodbye to the "what if" version of her family and getting "sacrificed" at the end of SotTR: definitely not the bombastic ending SotTR needed as the end of a trilogy story, but a great ending nevertheless. As someone who can understand Lara's missing her parents, seeing her have the opportunity to sacrifice all just to have them back, but refusing because she understands she needs to move on from her past losses, it just touches me. It also shows a nuanced character growth that usually isn't seen in games. If only this game was marketed as its own story and not the end of a trilogy...

Omg it actually does look like her underwear I always thought it was one of those things, I don't know what they're called, but that lace band a lot of brids wear at their wedding. I did think it was weird she'd be wearing one of those to the opera but whatever.

I just love the fun of the scene. Her attitude, the stunt pulling down the curtain and posing for the crowd while they throw roses, the vault over the bike. It's just crazy wacky fun.

Probably the one where Lara is breaking into Natla Industries in TR1. Love everything about it.

That kick gets me every time

Honorable mention:



This really showed her keeping her cool in an intense situation. Grunting, as if she resorted to getting angry over a fearful situation, I loved that reaction. Also the parachute landing in front of the plane explosion, just beautifully composed where you see chaos yet Lara landing so gracefully.

That's a garter, not underwear

My top 3:
1- The Last Revelation's ending
2- Legend's ending
3- Jonah tending to Lara's wounds OR Jonah and Lara when they finally reunite in the tsunami sequence OR Lara smiling at Unuratu, aware of the dangers they'll face, during the prison break.

Mmm...I'll go with Lara and Unuratu for the 3rd position.

It's called a garter. But I also thought Lara was wearing stockings and she placed the stone at the top.

As for favourite cutscene, I also like the "What if" family scene. I thought it was a memory at first, but I now think it was a a could have been scenario. I'm sure I have more examples, but my mind's a bit fuddled at the moment.

Its not as OTT as some of the other cut scenes but I’ve always really liked the scene at the end of Thames Wharf where she has the fight with the merc then uses her Witt to kill him with the bell.
