* How he ended up on Z'ha'dum in the first place. They broke his wife, and then when they realized what they had and how she could be of use to them (besides as the core of a ship), they fitted her with a new, loyal personality and had her contact him. So, he went to their home planet, and crashed his White Star into it...while it was loaded with nuclear weapons. He'd said that if he went down in Z'ha'dum, he wouldn't go easy or alone. He took the capital city of the Shadows with him.

--> This is Captain John Sheridan. We are here on the authority of a multi-planetary force, that can no longer stand by and watch one of their greatest allies falling into darkness and despair. We are here on behalf of the thousands of civilians murdered under orders from the current administration, who have no one else to speak for them, and on behalf of the [=EarthForce=] units that have joined us to oppose the tyranny that has darkened Earth, ever since President Santiago was assassinated three years ago. We are here to place President Clark under arrest, to disband Nightwatch, and return our government to the hands of her people. We know that many in the government have wanted to act, but have been intimidated by threats of retaliation against your families, your friends. You are not alone anymore. We call upon you to rise up and do what's right! We have drawn their forces away from Earth and disabled them. The time to act is now! This is not the voice of treason. These are your sons, your daughters, whose loyalties have never wavered, whose beliefs in this alliance has [sic] forced us to take extraordinary means! For justice, for peace, for the future…we have come home!

** Note two things on the scene: Londo did it in the middle of a bar; and there's two bottles on the table, one filled with a liquid that's yellow as their drink and one that's either empty or containing a transparent liquid. ''Londo did it in public and didn't even bother to hide the bottle of poison''-and got away with it.

** To add Awesomeness: by doing this, Vir showed he was {{Badass}} enough to be a Centauri ambassador, [[{{Ambadassador}} and got promoted]].

** Even better, this was immediately after he'd sent a pair of fighter craft to rescue the person he's talking to (Catherine Sakai), because he knew about the danger she'd be in. Up until that point, he was pretty much seen as a character out for the interests of his people and ''only'' his people; here, he showed a nobility he'd never displayed up to that point.

* In "Acts of Sacrifice", a radical Narn is secretly gathering together fellow Narns to launch a massacre of all the Centauri on Babylon 5. When G'Kar catches wind of this, knowing that peace is the best option for his people, he confronts the would-be usurper in a duel and thoroughly beats him. Keep in mind that said Narn was much younger than G'Kar, who helped drive the Centauri off Narn when the former was just a pouchling (child).
--> You've already made the challenge! The question is do you have the courage to back it up?

* His EstablishingCharacterMoment is one. Throughout Season 1, much was said, particularly by Sinclair, how nothing in Earthforce stood a chance against the Minbari during the Minbari War. First scene of Season 2? Introducing the new commanding officer of Babylon 5, and telling you he is the only guy to win against the Minbari - their flagship and supporting ships, specifically.

It almost {{Foreshadowing}} to how far up the cosmic pecking order Sheridan will go.
