Warren Parry (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

5. Parry back from the brink

Trailing 5-1 to Michael van Gerwen, few would've given Warren Parry hope of a comeback in their first round clash at the 2014 Sydney Darts Masters.

But the experienced Kiwi defied the odds to reel off five successive legs and claim the biggest win of his career.

"To beat Michael is jut unreal, awesome, I'm over the moon," said Parry, who went down to Peter Wright in the quarter-finals, but has since gone on to represent his country in three more World Cups and also competed in the World Championship.

Corey Cadby, Phil Taylor (PDC)

4. King Cadby comes of age

Corey Cadby announced himself to the world at the 2016 Perth Darts Masters as he stunned Phil Taylor with a 6-2 victory.

The young Aussie threw a 103.58 average to claim a career-defining win over the 16-time World Champion, who had beaten him in Sydney just a week earlier.

The win was a catalyst for future success for Cadby, who has since gone on to reach the finals of the UK Open and Auckland Darts Masters.

Adrian Lewis (PDC)

3. Lewis beats Barney in Auckland classic

Adrian Lewis defeated Raymond van Barneveld 11-10 in one of the greatest World Series finals ever seen at the 2015 Auckland Darts Masters.

A captivating final leg saw both players miss match darts before Lewis claimed glory in front of a captivated New Zealand crowd.

The Auckland win is Lewis' most recent individual televised title.

Kyle Anderson, Corey Cadby (PDC)

2. Anderson lands first TV title

Kyle Anderson claimed his first televised PDC title with a dramatic deciding leg win over Corey Cadby in the final of the 2017 Auckland Darts Masters.

A gripping climax to the tournament, which typified the World Series concept, saw Anderson edge out Cadby 11-10 in an electric atmosphere.

Anderson continues to be a regular fixture on the World Series and will be hoping for further success in 2019.

Phil Taylor (PDC)

1. Nine-dart magic from The Power

Phil Taylor struck the first, and so far only, nine-dart finish on the World Series against Peter Wright at the 2015 Sydney Masters.

An unprecedented moment for world darts saw Taylor land perfection on the way to a 10-7 win over Wright before going on to claim the title.

The moment has since taken on extra significance as it proved to be Taylor's last-ever televised nine-dart finish.
