* I honestly think this is the most awesome thing Casca said in the series thus far because it displays a phenomenal amount of her character development. It's not only the closest thing to a WhatTheHellHero speech that Guts was served up to that point, but it was the first time that Casca openly criticized Griffith, something that she would not have done in the past. Her words also ring true, in a [[FridgeHorror pretty creepy way]] considering what ends up happening to her later in the story as a result of Guts' and Griffith's decisions and actions for the sake of their own goals and ambitions.

** Even though this was overshadowed by horror, I thought 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.

* Isidro might not be my top favorite character, but he truly did amaze me when he saved Casca from being burned at the stake [[JustInTime in the nick of time]] in due to his IndyPloy in volume 21.

* Whenever the Skull Knight shows up, things are going to get awesome. He is like the personification of this trope, seriously. Wearing wicked skull armour and riding an armoured horse with a massive naked chick made of metal on the front, I mean come ON!

* Rickert and company's escape from Falconia is completely epic. Daiba shows up with swarms of snakes and rats to save Erica from Rakshas' clutches, and flies them out on his pet Pterasaurs. Rakshas flies into the air like a bat winged monster and is catching up, when at the last possible second Rickert shoots him out of the sky with a friggin' self-invented ''rocket launcher''. I think most of us will agree that Rickert officially TookALevelInBadass.

* Guts' first use of the Berserker armour: he gets eaten whole by an Apostle who runs outside screaming from the pain he's in, cleaves the apostle in two from the inside, the armour reshapes itself to match Guts and then he proceeds to curb-stomp every apostle he can get his hands on. The resulting carnage was so awesome that Skull Knight and Zodd ''completely forgot'' they were supposed to fight each other... and could only [[PassThePopcorn watch in awe]] how Guts cuts loose at Grunbeld, nearly beating him.

* Grunbeld calmly challenging Guts to single combat, before utterly schooling him in a fight.

* The declaration of war Guts delivers upon surviving The Eclipse is more HotBlooded and awesome than any HumongousMecha show I will ever watch.

Destiny? Quit spoutin' out a bunch of cryptic explanations! The point is, this is war! It ain't different from any other war! The last one standing wins! Listen here! I'm beatin' all a' you back down to Hell! Tell those ugly pale-faced bastards for me! If I get hit, I will hit back! Tell 'em leavin' me half-eaten is gonna be the end of you! I'll hunt and kill all those wretched monsters...and all of you...DOWN TO THE LAST ONE! THIS IS...'''MY DECLARATION OF WAR!'''"

* Though the Holy Iron Chain Knights (or "Spoiled Brat Knights," as Serpico calls them in the 2016 anime) are mainly spoiled young sons of noble families, when Guts jumps over Azan and goes straight for their commander, Farnese, a group of them do not hesitate to get themselves between her and Gutts, trying to protect her. Though they may have been spoiled and inexperienced, they weren't cowards.

* 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 hours it takes 5 days to take the castle. 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 loose a single man because Guts is holding the defensive line.

** 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 says, "the fuck that I'll let that happen." Skull Knight might be all mysterious and cynical and junk, and though he has saved countless people, it's here that we see that Skull Knight truly valued Flora as a friend.

ON!

Added DiffLines:

*** 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.

* 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.

* Following the aforementioned slap, Raksas attempts to assassinate him. After being saved by Silat and the Tapasa, Rickert concocts a plan with them to combat the Apostle. He lures Raksas into a trap and sprayed him with arrows ([[NoSell albeit ineffectually]]) and modifies the water spraying machine he created into a napalm-like flamethrower which the Tapasa use to force Raksas into Apostle form.
** Silat too gets an awesome moment when battles evenly with Raksas, even landing a hit. When Raksas 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 Raksas as well.
