* When Ayla stands up to Broud at the end of ''The Clan of the Cave Bear'' after he [[spoiler: curses her with death]] and gives him [[BadassBoast this speech]]: "I'm not dead, Broud. I won't die. You can't make me die. You can make me go away, you can take my son from me, but you can't make me die!"
* In ''The Valley of Horses'', when Jondalar calls her adopted family "animals"and her son an "abomination" for being of mixed spirits, Ayla rips him a new one, vehemently defending her family, calling him out on his knee-jerk prejudice and hypocrisy for claiming to be more civilised whilst vilifying her son for the way he was born and the Clan for being different [[spoiler: and for daring to judge ''her'' over being ''raped'' by Broud]], culminating in her telling him that if she had a choice between living with his people or with hyenas, she'd "choose the stinking hyenas" before leaping onto her horse and galloping off, leaving Jondalar gobsmacked and utterly shamed. He himself states she was "magnificent" in that moment.
* At the Mamutoi Summer Meeting in ''The Mammoth Hunters'', [[spoiler: Baby arrives looking for Ayla, having followed her scent and terrifies everyone. The hunters try to kill him, only for Ayla to intervene, putting herself between them. Then, in front of hundreds of people, she not only fearlessly approaches and strokes the biggest lion they've ever seen, but ''climbs onto his back and rides off'', leaving everyone completely speechless]].
* In the same book, Ayla is furious when she learns that the mamuts won't allow [[spoiler: Rydag]] to have a funeral because he's [[spoiler: a hybrid and so considered subhuman]]. She chews them out - keeping in mind that these guys are the spiritual leaders of the Mamutoi and very powerful - and then proceeds to hold a funeral for him anyway, Clan-style.
