* After foiling the attempt on Padme's life, Obi-Wan sees the droid that brought those two poisonous critters to kill and immediately jumps through (not out, ''through'') the window and grabs on so it doesn't get away. The entire chase scene following this is one long moment of awesome.

* The one unnamed Jedi who jumped in fearlessly and tried to take Count Dooku on all by himself, true he failed, but points for trying.

* The ending of the stadium battle when the Jedi seem defeated, but refuse to surrender.Then Yoda and an entire army of troops appear out of nowhere and save them. The phrase BigDamnHeroes has rarely fit better

* Although Yoda's popularity has never waned since the original trilogy, the moment he dropped his cane and pulled out a lightsaber in ''[[StarWars Attack of the Clones]]'' forever cemented him as being as badass as he is wise.
** He doesn't just ''pull'' it out, oh no, that's not cool enough. He puts away the cane, then opens his robe and ''Forces the lightsaber from inside his robe to his open hand. That'' is what [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]] are made of.
** Though additional viewings will reveal that he was standing on part of the ship behind Dooku, there's a moment during the duel where it looks like Yoda ''air-jumped!'' That's right: at first glance, Yoda is defying physics like a ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' character! He really isn't, but it's no less awesome. You never would've except such an old, frail, and ''tiny'' little guy to be so nimble, even ''with'' the Force helping him out!

* Count Dooku kicked the asses of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi ''simultaneously'', and still had enough juice to give Yoda a decent fight. Granted that he'd probably have lost if the duel had continued, but the number of people who could last even that long has got to be awfully small, and y'know, he's played by Creator/ChristopherLee.The best part was that ''Yoda wasn't trying to win.'' He was playing around, trying to buy time for the clones to arrive and save Obi-Wan and Anakin. Size matters not indeed.
** The guy ''salutes'' Yoda before they go at it.
** Yoda hopping around like a demon frog on acid when he was fighting Count Dooku.

the duel begins.



** Agreed. The whole battle of Geonosis was just awesome to say the least. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rHvrLlQSWI&feature=fvst This]] makes it even more awesome, in a way.



* Towards the beginning of the film, when Obi-Wan and Anakin are chasing after Zam, Anakin takes a short cut. He pulls to a halt, and for a few moments, it looks as though they've lost her. Obi-Wan looks annoyed, but Anakin doesn't. Then Anakin gives his master a casual "excuse me" before ''jumping over the side of the speeder, free-falling through traffic, and landing on Zam's speeder''. '''''And he timed it just right.''''' This scene was obviously made for anyone still in doubt that Anakin is the Chosen One.
** The best part: Obi-Wan looks ''annoyed'' when he does it, and simply states, "I hate it when he does that." Meaning that this isn't the first time Anakin's pulled an awesome stunt like this.

* Mace vs Jango Fett

* %%* Mace vs Jango Fett



*** Anakin and Padme have some great BackToBackBadasses moment as a true BattleCouple, notably when they commandeer a chariot-type thing, with Padme driving (and shooting!) and Anakin in the back deflecting blaster bolts and chopping up droids with his lightsaber. Then they take a near hit, the vehicle is overturned, and they scramble for the cover of the chariot pod, now on its side. Padme keeps coolly picking off battle droids with her blaster while Anakin covers both of them with his lightsaber.

* "This party's over.", which is followed by an awesome battle between dozens of Jedi and hundreds of robots (and later clone troopers), in which the one speaking (Mace Windu) defeats another badass, Jango Fett.
** Mace facing down Dooku is awesome but it goes into CrowningMomentOfAwesome territory when it is revealed that dozens of the spectators in the audience are Jedi.You can see why Mace has the initials for "Bad Motherfucker" on his lightsaber.
* Let's talk about Count Dooku for a minute. Dude kicked the asses of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi ''simultaneously'', and still had enough juice to give Yoda a decent fight. Granted that he'd probably have lost if the duel had continued, but the number of people who could last even that long has got to be awfully small, and y'know, he's played by Creator/ChristopherLee.

** Yoda hopping around like a demon frog on acid when he was fighting Count Dooku counts too.
** The best part was that ''Yoda wasn't trying to win.'' He was playing around, trying to buy time for the clones to arrive and save Obi-Wan and Anakin. But he still was winning.
** The mere fact that the dwarf Yoda just about bested 6"4" Dooku is awesome

* Jango Fett beats one Jedi in a fistfight, that same Jedi in a dogfight, kills another Jedi with a blaster, and holds his own against a Jedi and a giant monster at the same time. He loses that last one, but that's still an impressive record for a BadassNormal.
