** Theodora holding the empire together while Justinian was stricken with Plague, preventing a coup and maintaining general order until he miraculously recovered. Not for nothing is episode 10 of the series labeled not "Justinian and Theodora" or "The Byzantine Empire", but rather simply "Theodora".

* Khosrau Anushirawan
** Kavadh (Khosrau's father) pulls off a BatmanGambit that would make the trope-namer proud. When dealing with Sukhra, an advisor who was making him into a PuppetKing, Kavadh finally dismissed him from court, knowing full well that it wouldn't diminish his influence.
---> The stars had aligned for Sukhra. To all appearances, he stood on the brink of claiming the throne for himself. ''This'' is what Kavadh had counted on. If he knew one thing about Iran's noble families, it was this: through all [[DeadlyDecadentCourt the centuries of intrigue, manipulation, and outright bloodshed]], the ''one thing'' that always served to keep noble families in check [[TallPoppySyndrome was their rivalry with other noble families]].

Added DiffLines:

** The last video of the series, detailing the German perspective, is truly awe inspiring, it shows just how effective the actions of the Allies were, the deception of the British (detailed in Episode 2) hampers their response, the French sabotage of specific bridges and railroads (detailed in Episode 3) slows them further, and the assault on the beaches (detailed in Episode 1) were devastating.

* [[BattleDancer The Dancer of the Boreal Valley]] is considered by many to be [[ThatOneBoss the hardest boss in the game—if not in]] [[UpToEleven ''the entire series'']]. [[AntiClimaxBoss Dan beat it on on his first attempt.]] Several episodes later, he noted that he hadn't even realized the Dancer was such a notorious boss until ''after'' the episode was uploaded (which came up after Dan had been struggling with some typical EliteMooks).

** Odenathus creating an army from nothing but his cities troops, scattered Legionaries and the peasantry of Palmyra, and beating the Saracen Empire to a standstill, even twice going to their capital. But that's not all, he pretty much moved Heaven and Earth to maintain stability in the empire, giving the Roman Empire enough time to lick their wounds and rebuild their strength.
