* Cornell boasts of his immortality... Gabriel shows him who the true warrior is. The Lycan Lord activates his [[OneWingedAngel true form]]. Belmont proceeds to wreck the brute with both the Dark Gauntlet's tremor punches and the Combat Cross's chain strikes to keep him off balance and destroy all of his power totems, thus rendering him vulnerable once more. The Lord of Shadow tries to up the ante with agility but Gabriel pulls him back to earth with the grapple and spiked-chain upgrades in a show-case display of morning-star entrapment and control. Yanking the massive bastard off his feet multiple times. The finale is capped with Gabriel retrieving Cornell's massive fuck off war-hammer with the aid of the Dark Gauntlet then proceeding to beat the archfiend around the ears with it until the head snaps off due to a godly flying double overhead blow, before driving the jagged broken haft up into his mouth, through his brain and clean out the other side. A PhysicalGod who annihilated the greatest nation since Atlantis [[CatharsisFactor lies crushed at your feet]].

* Encountering Olrox begins with Gabriel arriving in his domain. Olrox then swoops down, the two stand back to back and the vampire tells Gabriel in no uncertain terms that he is not welcome here. Gabriel responds without even looking at his adversary. Pretty badass.

* Nearly every cutscene fight in the Hunting Path chase sequence serves to solidify Gabriel's badass credentials. Including shrugging off a Lycan bite to his clavicle as if it were a mere hindrance, leaping onto Warg mounts and snapping theirs spine with one or two plunges of the combat cross's pommel spike and even nailing a Lycan between the eyes with a thrown silver dagger.

** Also, the fantastic finisher Gabriel foists the Nosferatu with: [[RasputinianDeath tearing off his wings with his bare hands, slicing off his weapon hand with one of his own blades, burying said sword in his skull before reverse back-spin stabbing him through the spine and out of his chest with the Vampire Killer.]] The clincher is that Gabriel [[UnflinchingWalk doesn't even look back]] after landing the final blow.

* Almost all of the boss's QTE finishers have Gabriel [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] them. This include ''the final boss.''
* In the ''gorgeous'' [[ColdOpen first chapter]], Gabriel strides into a lightning-swept European village being assaulted by a Lycan raiding party. [[BattleInTheRain What ensues?]] Belmont dispatches dozens of werewolves, while protecting the small-folk, followed by smacking around the pack leader before impaling said ''Great Warg'' through the chest on a chunk of broken stockade as it pounces down on him. Read, he lifts a timber log the size of a tree trunk, to hold up a half tonne mammoth predator. BadAssNormal indeed.

* Zobek's BigDamnHeroes introduction, catching Gabriel's thrown silver dagger in a blizzard from fifty feet up is pretty damn impressive.

* Almost all of the boss's QTE finishers have Gabriel [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] them. The first being a swamp troll who looks to be twice as strong as your average silverback gorilla. Gabriel grabs the boy by his slimy furred lapels, pulls back and gives him the mother of all ''Glasgow Kisses''! Followed up with a knee uppercut, before jamming the spiked arms of the cross into the monster's mouth and ripping back and away at the soft pallet in one almighty jerk back; either pulverizing the beast's brains or eliciting a NeckSnap.
* Zobek's BigDamnHeroes introduction, catching Gabriel's thrown silver dagger in a blizzard from fifty feet up is pretty damn impressive.impressive and even though the man looks to be in his ''[[BadassGrandpa sixties]]'' at the very least, he can pull off the same crazy acrobatics that Gabriel is capable of when we see him both mount and dismount the Ice Titan.
* [[CuteMute Claudia]] is pretty awesome, what with her back-flipping lackadaisically all over the ruins of her civilization, one infested with the Dark Lord's minions as if it's her own personal playground. You first see her scaring off a troll that's about to attack Gabriel with the mere threat of a dark crystal before unleashing the sealed demon on the brute.

* The sheer amount of SceneryPorn present in Chapter One. From the aforementioned stormy hamlet, Horse!Pan's epic leap over the downed Aghartian bridge, the incredible atmosphere of the Dead Bog, the jaw-dropping beauty that went into creating the last bastion of the Forest spirits and the Lake of Oblivion. Safe to say, this Troper was hooked from the off-set.
