** Her intrepidness certainly doesn't end there, because from that point on, Casca is the de-facto leader of the Band of the Hawk. Even though we don't see all that they've been through in the course of the year, we can only assume that Casca continuously had to avert enemies, keep the remaining Hawks together, and constantly plan for Griffith's rescue. The fact that she's so focused on her duties as a leader on not on her personal well-being shows through he sleep deprivation.
** ... And speaking of sleep deprivation, friendly reminder that Casca fights Silat when she's pretty much half asleep. Yeah, another battle where she technically loses in the end, but not without an actual good reason and still showing how much resilience and endurance Casca actually has.

* Guts and Casca's first fight. Despite the fact that she lost in the end, it's very impressive because mind you: very few grown men have been able to hold teenaged Guts off in combat for so long, let alone a teenage girl. And he was never holding back, ''not even Casca was outed as a girl.''

* While Isidro is trying to help Casca and Nina escape from the pagans, he jerry-rigs a pulley system but Casca slips through the harness, only to acrobatically land safely on the cave floor below. A small feat, yes, but so impactful - especially considering recent plot developments on Elfhelm - because it's the first hint that on some level, Casca is aware of her surroundings despite her insanity.

* [[http://read.mangashare.com/Berserk/chapter-056/page006.html Charlotte gets one]] in the manga when she completely pulverizes [[spoiler: her father]]'s face with her feet after he tries to rape her. Not as awesome as the other examples on this page, but still pretty impressive for someone who's a DamselInDistress most of the time.

* Guts' BerserkerTears filled UnstoppableRage upon finding [[spoiler: Griffith's tortured, mutilated and emaciated body inside the Tower of Rebirth]] seriously deserves a mention. The torturer gloats as soon as he locks Guts' group inside a chamber. As he [[ToThePain lets them in on what's in store for them]], Guts [[TalkToTheFist rams his sword through the door and through the torturer]]. And then he proceeds to live up to the name of the series by carving a bloody swath through every last Midland guard between him, the Hawks, and the way out of the tower.

* Guts taking on TheLegionsOfHell [[spoiler: during the Eclipse]] with nothing more than his UnstoppableRage and a horn he snapped off a monster's head. Then when [[spoiler: his arm gets caught in the mouth of one of those demons, he picks up a dull sword and ''hacks it off'' at the elbow, all to try and save the person he loved.]]
** [[ForegoneConclusion Although we already know what ultimately happens,]] the movie adds a few more Awesome Moment for Guts. When he cuts his arm off, Guts doesn't bother hacking all the way through but instead cuts only halfway before tearing the rest off as he pulls himself free. Guts then charges at [[spoiler: Femto]] but is frozen dead in his tracks just as he is about to drives his broken sword into [[spoiler: Femto's]] eye. For a moment, it seems that Guts will now have a front row seat to [[spoiler:Femto's raping of Casca]], until Guts slowly but surely overcomes [[spoiler: Femto's]] spell with nothing but his [[HeroicWillpower sheer willpower]] and [[UnstoppableRage unfathomable rage.]] Guts is tossed back by an influx of [[spoiler: Femto's]] power, but the nigh-omnipotent demon god's [[OhCrap expression]] suggests he legitimately didn't see that one coming and realized that Guts may actually be able to harm him if he allowed Guts to get too close.
*** Watch the reactions of the Godhand while this is happening; when Guts first lunges towards [[spoiler: Femto]], the other Godhand members are all laughing. Then they '''stop''', because despite their claims that a mere human could never overpower one of them, Guts '''is still moving towards [[spoiler: Femto]]'''. Not only did he not see it coming, '''none of the others saw it coming either'''. Slan herself seemed mightily impressed.

** One moment in particular was the fight at the spirit tree, where [[spoiler:Griffith sent his apostles to go kill Flora.]] And then Skull Knight comes and basically says, "the fuck that I'll let that happen." Skull Knight may be all mysterious, cynical and junk, and though he has saved countless people, it's here that we see just how much Skull Knight truly valued Flora as a friend.

* Griffith and the new Band of the Hawk versus [[spoiler: Vishnu/Ganishka and its massive horde of Apostle spawn.]] Sure, he's the villain, but still! Under his command, [[spoiler:regular, human soldiers start ''fighting alongside'' the monstrous, demonic Apostles.]] It really gives you an idea of why everybody considers him to be a MessianicArchetype.
* Griffith/Femto just got another, when [[spoiler: he uses Skull Knight's surprise attack that was meant to kill him to split the abomination that Ganishka had become open and ''merge all layers of the world!'' And in the wake of that, his castle, his city of Falconia, rises from the earth, marking both the beginning of his reign and the Age of Darkness.]]

* Farnese has recently gotten another one with [[spoiler:her very first spell, a ward of protection around the ship Guts and company are taking. Schierke's not the only witch among Guts' TrueCompanions anymore]].
* In chapter 326, [[spoiler:Guts killed the Sea God. That's right, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Guts has officially punched out]] ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Berserk]]''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu 's equivalent to Cthulhu!]]]]

* In Chapter 351, Schierke brings forth not only the giant golem, but also the [[spoiler:Rotting Root Lord]] to fend off the incredibly disturbing monsters after them, but when Schierke runs out of fetishes, Farnese brings out a summon of her own from her dream to cover their escape from the nightmarish forest: [[spoiler:FREAKING MOZGUS!]]

* 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, where Guts cannot use the Dragonslayer due to the cliff being on his right side and Serpico actively preventing him from drawing it. He's also pretty good with his rapier, actually forcing Guts on the defensive. The only reason Serpico loses the fight is that Guts is able to grab Serpico's sword with his right hand and snap its blade, and Guts notes that Serpico was an even tougher opponent than ''the Apostle-spawn he'd just killed''.

** 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's fight against Mozgus where he yells just before killing him

* At the end of the Conviction arc, Guts and his allies are attacked by the Bakiraka. While the men (And Isidro) manage to defend themselves, Casca, Farnese, Luca and Nina are captured by them and threatened unless they surrender. Out of absolutely nowhere, Azan appears behind the one who held them hostage, announcing his presence, before smashing in his head with his metal quarterstaff. A true [[KnightInShiningArmor knight]], indeed.

* In Chapter 337, Rickert has the nads to slap Griffith in the face. The greatest thing about this is that he's able to walk away afterwards without being assailed by any of the villain's soldiers for doing such an act. Quite the impressive feat, considering how "untouchable" Neo-Griffith has seemingly become since joining the Godhand.

** Silat too gets an awesome moment when battles evenly with Rakshas, even landing a hit. When Rakshas comments on his improvement, he reveals that after Guts' defeated him, he learnt from his failure and became much stronger. His Tapasa get to show off their incredible skill and finesse in the battle with Rakshas as well.
