* 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.

* Captain Sharkrider's pirate crew last seen in Vritannis decide to try their luck and attack Roderick's ship, the ''Seahorse'', which Guts and his companions are traveling on. Cue Roderick utterly humiliating them in a naval CurbStompBattle.

* 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.

** Bonus awesomeness: Locus standing in the background, looking really, [[{{DeathGlare}} REALLY]] pissed but not allowed to act on it. This, after he tried to intimidate Rickert earlier by showing him the army of Apostles in the arena.

** 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.

* 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!]]

* 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, matching him blow for blow and then some.
** Every other use of the Berserker armour is a mix of awesome and terrifying because they all know that Guts is killing himself by using it and is one step away from killing them too.

** The tiger battle that follows has nearly everyone in Guts's crew pitching in. Guts is the primary asskicker of the fight, cleaving through tigers left and right with the Dragonslayer, while Isidro helps out with Godo's bombs and Schierke summons a plant elemental to tangle up more tigers before granting control of her summon to Farnese, who promptly uses it to save Roderick from another tiger, while giving him some pointers on what weapons to use against the monsters. Roderick even skewers one of the tigers to help out Guts.

* Guts' very first appearance where he kills the unnamed female apostle. It essentially spells out that he is someone you do not want to piss off.
* The first published use of the Dragonslayer and later the true reveal of the arm cannon while fighting the Baron of Koka Castle, in which he ''unloads the thing right in the bastard's face!''
* Guts is traveling with a priest and his daughter when they come across an old battlefield. Due to Guts' tendency to attract violent spirits because of his Brand, 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.

Guts starts smashing them apart, something that's made easy due to the Dragonslayer acting as both a sword and a bludgeon, but it's hard to kill something that's already dead and Puck desperately tries to get him to run.



* Guts shattering Zondark's war hammer with enough force that it also breaks his helmet and sends pieces of the hammer into his face. Guts' second fight with Zondark where he its shown that he's not just an unskilled and powerful brute but a master swordsman. During the battle with the Count he picks up his BFS WITH HIS TEETH, rests it on his iron arm, and then dives in and cuts off the Count's head! The end of the (chronological) first meeting with the God Hand has Guts quickly reloading his arm cannon and firing it at Femto all the while he's in the sky and phantoms are trying to pull him into Hell!

** And Guts is not kidding. He's been fighting these things nigh on every night for ''two long years''. Even if night after night of fighting demons has taken its toll on him psychologically, there's no denying that if Guts wasn't such a badass, he'd be dead long before this.
