** Regarding ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', the original title was going to be Revenge before Lucas twigged to the notion that revenge wasn't really the Jedi way. Given how ''Film/Avengers Assemble'' was named regionally, France going with the original planned title on release is a perfectly plausible alternate, slyly reinforcing the idea she was opening dimensional gates.

*** And Ray the announcer couldn't care less. The Vox know taking on Songbird is useless, so they don't even try. Ray just keeps shouting for Comstock's death. Crying out for revenge and retribution and zepplin after zepplin is sent forward to release a new wave of Patriots on the hapless ship. They are willing to lose as many men as necessary to destroy Comstock's flagship and they never, NEVER stop coming, Songbird or not.

* The final events of Comstock house: once Booker's shut down the generators that were keeping Elizabeth's powers nullified, she proceeds to perform one of the most spectacular displays of power yet: opening a tear leading directly into a tornado, killing the sick bastards who [[spoiler: were about to operate on her.]] Then, once she's patched up, she opens the same Tear again to give herself a dramatic backdrop while [[spoiler:discussing whether or not she should kill Comstock.]] The {{Badass}} threat to Booker--and Booker's flat response--really sells it.
-->'''Elizabeth:''' Really, Booker? What are ''you'' going do to stop ''me''?\\
'''Booker:''' Not a damn thing.
** Which turns into a [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming CMOH]] immediately afterwards with the second half of his reply:
-->'''Booker:''' 'Cause I'm gonna do it ''for you''.
* Elizabeth starts out a very sheltered, albeit extremely intelligent, young women who just wants to see the world outside her room. She grows into [[spoiler:a reality-warping force of nature capable of controlling the likes of Songbird. ''"I wasn't asking for permission."'']] Also:
--> '''Elizabeth''': [[spoiler:Booker, are you afraid of God?"]]
--> '''Booker''': [[spoiler:No... but I'm afraid of you.]]



** [[spoiler: As you made your way through Columbia, you heard people speak of the Songbird in hushed tones and awed whispers, depicting him as some sort of mythic beast. The final battle does everything to vindicate that reputation; he single-handedly tears through the entire fleet of warships like an enraged sky-god out for blood, illuminated by lightning and heralded by thunder. If Zeus were real, he would fear the Songbird.]]
*** Even better, you can command Songbird to attack the infantry in the middle of the arena. He crashes down and absolutely ''annihilates'' anything in arm's reach. Even Patriots.

* Though it does turn [[MoodWhiplash darker very fast]], coming out into the third universe where [[spoiler:Booker and Slate became martyrs]] and listening to the Vox Populi outside shouting "VOX! VOX! VOX! VOX!" makes you glad that the Founders are finally going to get what they deserve.

* In an echo of an aforementioned moment of awesome from one of the demos, Booker takes out an airship in a fairly similar way. However, this time [[spoiler: the airship belongs to the Founders, and he's on the side of the Vox Populi.]] And ''this'' time, everyone below is watching him... and cheering him on! Elizabeth even calls Booker a total badass when he lands back on solid ground, which he casually brushes off like what he just did weren't no big thing.
** Even better is the fact that [[spoiler: this universe's Booker had already given his life for the Vox Populi who subsequently revere him as a martyr. Here the Vox not only sees one man single-handedly taking down an airship, they're seeing it being done by their dead hero '''[[NotTooDeadToSaveTheDay risen again.]]''' It is at this point that the rebellion stops chanting their usual "Vox! Vox! Vox!" in unison as Booker destroys the airship, instead they chant "[=DeWitt! DeWitt! DeWitt=]!"]]
* Elizabeth killing [[spoiler: Daisy Fitzroy]] after a MoralEventHorizon crossing.

* After she finds out Booker never intended to take her to Paris, and that she's just a package he's supposed to deliver, Elizabeth starts crying. And waits for Booker to get closer, so she can clock him with a nearby wrench [[spoiler:which also happens to be identical to the one Jack used in Rapture]].
** If you look closely, you'll see that just before she starts "crying" she glances at the wrench lying on the airship's dashboard.

* Booker lets us know early on in the game that he's NOT a man to be trifled with when he demonstrates one of gaming's most badass ways for a character to obtain his/her first weapon - in this case the Skyhook - [[spoiler: by first distracting its original owner (by casually tossing a baseball straight upwards), then grabbing his equally distracted partner next to him, shoving his face straight into its spinning blades, and finally snatching it up straight out of the now unrecognizable mess left over.]]
* The very first time Elizabeth opens a tear. Booker is watching her through one of the one-way mirrors, as she's going about her usual business, when she stops in front of a painting of the Eiffel Tower. She looks it over for a moment, then gestures - and a tear opens to 1980s Paris, complete with a snippet from [[Music/TearsForFears "Everybody Wants to Rule the World"]] and a movie theater marquee with ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. Even if you know it's coming, that's still pretty impressive. Pardon. REVENGE of the Jedi as a little in-joke/what could have been reference.

* The unforgettable first encounter with Songbird. You don't see exactly what it does at first; you run to Elizabeth's side atop the monument tower, then there's a huge crash and, in the next instant, there's ''no more ground'' beneath the two of you. By pure luck, you catch onto a skyline to try escaping, and see the monument's head and wing falling away in the distance. You were just inside that massive structure less than a minute before, and Songbird ripped it to pieces in as little time. It's right about here that players have to ask themselves "How in the hell am I supposed to ''fight'' something like that?!" The answer? '''[[spoiler: YOU DON'T.]]'''
