* Right after this, Serpico gets his own CMOA when he stops Guts and saves his commander (and half-sister) with a mere piece of wood which he throws directly at Guts' injured thigh, thereby knocking him out. Bonus points for nobody else noticing it, not even Farnese, thereby causing all the Knights to think she did it herself.

** The movie adds another Awesome Moment for him, as he manages to almost drive his sword into [[spoiler: Femto's]] eye; he's tossed back, but the nigh-omnipotent demon god's [[OhCrap expression]] suggests he legitimately didn't see that one coming.

* Fridge-awesome: Guts' first meeting with the Hawks was as an enemy: the castle he was supposed to take was being defended by the hawks and a group of knights. Instead of taking Guts and the mooks he's working with 5 days to take the castle, it took 5 hours. The whole reason Griffith wants Guts is because he saw first hand how unstoppable Guts is in battle. Once he has Guts the Hawks going from being an exceptional group to one where they can commit the most crazy but practical assault on the enemy and not lose a single man because Guts is holding the defensive line.

Added DiffLines:

* Serpico challenging Guts shortly after his battle with the Great Goat Head. This gives us a glimpse at his tactical genius, as he encounters Guts at a narrow cliff face. He's also pretty good with his rapier, actually forcing Guts to be on the defensive.
** When he pretty much loses the fight, he's able to dodge a wave of bombs aimed at him, steal one of Guts's bombs, and detonate it as a distraction.

* Guts is traveling with a priest and his daughter when they come across an old battlefield. Due to Guts' tendency to attract violent spirits, the skeletons reanimate and kill the girl. Guts starts smashing them apart, but it's hard to kill something that's already dead and Puck desperately tries to get him to run.

** Casca also totally kicks ass in that fight. She catches a sword flying through the air, parries, and chops off her attacker's head in one smooth motion, and that's just the start. Even though she almost collapses from fatigue several times, she manages to take down seven guys by herself.

* How about when the Midland army traps the Hawks two to one when Griffith gets arrested and the King charges them all with the count of high treason? Although weaponless and surrounded by hundreds of Midland soldier, Casca manages to break the Hawks through the barrier and leads them to safety, all the while with ''[[AnnoyingArrows five crossbow bolts]]'' stuck in her. Daay-umn girl.

** Even though this was overshadowed by horror, it was pretty badass how Casca gave one last stand against the apostles after Judeau died. Even in the face of death ([[FateWorseThanDeath and worse]]), Casca did not give up.

*** Before Judeau dies, he throws his last knife at the Apostle that just skewered him, which distracts it enough that Casca can attack it with her sword. In the next panel, you can see that the Apostle is now lying on the ground. Even though they were never powerhouse fighters like Guts, Judeau and Casca managed to take down an Apostle in the middle of the Eclipse. Even better, in the anime, Casca cleaves the damn demon right in half!

* Guts has the title of the "Hundred Man Slayer," which he earned by single-handedly tearing apart Adon Corbowitz's company of at least one hundred mooks plus his giant brother Samson, in what was deemed at the time as a suicidal assault. And he survives the whole thing while preventing Casca from getting even a scratch on her, cementing his reputation as a supreme {{Badass}}.

* Schierke gets several of these but especially upon summoning a [[PlayingWithFire giant fire wheel]] and then ''[[KillItWithFire torching alive a whole platoon of Kushan demon soldiers]]''!!! She might be a GlassCannon but she's still {{Badass}} for such a frail-looking little girl (aside from [[KillerRabbit Rosine]] of course).

* During Guts and Griffith's first fight, even though he ends up loosing, how 'bout Guts biting down on Griffith's sword and knocking him down a hill where he beats him up?

* Griffith manages to capture the impregnable castle of Doldrey and win the Hundred Year war using only the Band of the Hawk, with no assistance from Midland. To do this he faces the Purple Rhino Knights, the Tudor's strongest army, with only five thousand men and a river at his back. He uses Lord Gennon's obsession with him to draw the Chuder army away from the castle, enabling Casca's team to rush inside and defeat the Garrison. Once Guts decapitates General Boscone and the Hawk banner flies over Doldrey, the Hawks mop up the remaining forces as they flee.
* Griffith greatest MagnificentBastard moment comes AFTER he just single-handedly won the Hundred Year War: A group of disgruntled nobles led by the Queen and Minister Foss are planning to poison Griffith and then blame the assassination on the Chuder Empire. Griffith seemingly falls for it, but later, the conspirators find the castle they are in is burning. The queen rushes to a balcony to see what is going on, only to find Griffith, alive and well, standing outside the castle. Griffith calmly explains to the queen and her fellow conspirators that they are the losers, and death on the battlefield does not distinguish between nobility and commoners before the last of his enemies burn alive. Foss, who had taken part in the conspiracy and had acted as Griffith's mole after Griffith kidnapped his daughter, finds himself shaking after the fact. Not because he's worried that he will be executed if anyone ever finds out, but because Griffith is just that scary.
