* The ballroom. Even after 20 years it can still compete with today's CGI. The fact that Belle and the Beast are perfectly animated to go along with the 3D camera certainly helps.

** Hell, the entire castle siege in general was amazing, considering it was an angry mob of simple-minded townsfolk armed with torches and pitchforks against an entire castle of servants transformed into ordinary household objects who turn out to be NotSoHarmless. You try and fight against drawers of living cutlery with a ''very terrifying cooker'' as their leader, a hat rack with incredible boxing skills, a pile-driving wardrobe, a cannibal chest, a living candelabra, a scissor toting clock and an ApronMatron teapot who utilizes her tea cup children into ''scalding'' people.
** Lets look into several others as well; Several pans begin to strike down at one of them, the jugs throw produce at another, a trunk EATS the Baker, and lord knows what else these guys did. It's not wonder these guys just left; the servants were a MookHorrorShow!

*** And she's the tank of the group in this fight; she piledrives one of the goons, and begins to kung-fu strike several of them with her doors before stuffing one inside of her and putting him in a silly outfit. Seriously, she's the most physically powerful of ANY of the servants!

* Lumiere's SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome has to be when he saves his beloved Babette by ''scorching the backside off of the villain ripping her apart''!

** He also hears Belle shout for Gaston to stop. I like to imagine that, after everything Belle had told him about the guy who wouldn't stop hassling her, he was thinking, "Oh, the HELL if I get killed by THIS asshole."

* While it's also [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hysterical,]] the scene of the Beast on his way to Belle's room after she refuses to come to dinner highlights just how powerful his body is as he scrambles up the first few stairs and then VAULTS THE GAP between the staircase and second story hall!
* The wolf sequence in the forest. Belle's attacked by a bunch of wolves; she defends herself well, but there are just too many of them. Wolf leaps, she goes down, another wolf leaps, looks like the end. Cue the Beast grabbing the wolf and ROARING in its face as the music goes berserk, then proceeding to rip the pack apart. Epic.

** Also a Moment of Heartwarming, Belle's fear of Beast apparently disappears after he saves her. He roars right in her face when she accidentally aggravates his wounds and she doesn't even flinch. Heck, she talks back to him as he complains. Probably because the wolf fight shows her that for all of his tantrums he could never and would never actually hurt her.
** Belle needs way more credit for the woods scene. Slamming wolves into trees while on horseback, riding that fast on cluttered, overgrown paths, and then attempting to fight off the wolves with a stick? Yes, the Beast has to come in at the end, but Belle held her own against a pack quite well.

* And that goes double for Howard Ashman, Menken's songwriting partner since practically the start of his musical career. Some time before ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' won Oscars for Best Song and Best Score, Ashman was diagnosed as HIV-positive. When he was put to work for ''Beauty and the Beast'', Ashman was noted to be irritable and would soon not even be able work in the studio. But did he give up on his work? HELL NO! He would instruct recording sessions via telephone even when he was weak and he wrote what are probably some of the most memorable songs in cinema, period, during the last year of his life (the title song's lyrics undoubtedly being his best). Even though he never lived to see the finished film, Ashman's sheer dedication to his work counts as this trope, a TearJerker, and a great SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}. The dedication at the end of the film states he 'gave a mermaid her voice and a beast his soul'.

** How about we think about the fact that a child that's, I'm gonna guess, is about 9 years old, figured out how to work a machine WITHOUT HANDS! Seriously, this kid was able to make it work AND still have enough time for him, Belle and Maurice to make it back to the Beast's castle!

** Tacked onto that is one for the person who convinced her to do it, as she hadn't wanted to perform the song[[note]]She didn't think she could live up to the demo recording by Howard Ashman, despite having her own Broadway cred[[/note]] and only agreed to do the one take that made it into the movie.

* During the battle at the Beast's castle, when [=LeFou=] is melting Lumiere, Cogsworth appears at the top of the stairs, dressed in British Admiralty regalia and wielding a pistol and scissors, and, laughing hysterically, slides down the banister and saves Lumiere. It's particularly awesome considering how much of a stiff jobsbody he was before, and how antagonistic his relationship with Lumiere was.

** Credit where credit is due, Gaston is able to back up much of his boasting during the song. He snaps a leather belt around his neck simply by flexing, takes a bite out of said belt to spit a wad of chewed leather through several ricochet shots to hit the spittoon, and effortlessly lifts the Bimbettes and their bar seat with one hand.

** You also have to give credit to the villagers for deciding to kill the Beast. Sure, from both Belle's and the audience's perspective, a bunch of people led by the film's main antagonist are about to attack a gentle giant out of a ''huge'' misunderstanding (and Gaston's jealousy). But to the villagers, a terrifying monster is threatening their safety, and he needs to be killed in order to protect their village and their families.

** As much of a nutcase as Gaston is, Belle probably didn't want him to get killed either. She didn't respond to his DisneyVillainDeath because she was more concerned about Beast in the moment.


Added DiffLines:

** Also the only animated film to be nominated for Best Picture when the field was only at five. A feat no other animated film accomplished. The field was already extended to ten when ''Up'' and ''Toy Story 3'' were each nominated.
** The idea that many agree it should have won Best Picture over ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs''.

** He was also given some of the finest and most fluid animation ever seen in the entire Disney Animated Canon. In particular his facial animation is nearly flawless and as a result he is able to emote so believably that the audience immediately feels kinship and sympathy for him.
