* Edmund, as the Archbishop of Canterbury, tricks a dying nobleman into signing over his lands to the crown instead of the church, by telling him that Hell is for people who like depravities like the nobleman had indulged in in life (incest, adultery, murder etc...) and he would be incredibly bored in Heaven. This is one of the few times Edmund appears as scheming and intelligent as his d, and is also one of the few times Richard IV shows Edmund genuine respect.

* The last scene of ''Blackadder Goes Forth'' was a DyingMomentOfAwesome for the entire cast (sans Melchett). In terms of meta, the editors and the BBC earn their own moment of awesome: using the existing crappyly acted footage and slow it down significantly to turn it into one of the most impactful ending in television, and then having the guts to broadcast the episode on Remembrance Sunday with only one complaint. [[note]]The person didn't think it was in bad taste, but that it was too realistic and depressing for a comedy show. [[/note]]

* Edmund Blackadder, Esq. ends up alive, and fully set up to take over the prince's identity. And unlike the one of ''Back & Forth'' mentioned below, he doesn't have the help of a time machine; he's just that good. ([[EpilepticTrees Unless that actually]] ''[[EpilepticTrees was]]'' [[EpilepticTrees how his decedent influenced history.]])
