* Sengoku Jedai.
** Oda Nobunaga, forced to pull an ignominious retreat after an ally turned on him, leads his troops marching down a forrest road, when a ninja shoots him with an arquebus, pulls another, and shoots again, fleeing in the confusion. Nobunaga is thrown from his horse, and his men clamor in confusion. Then, slowly, Nobunaga rises, one bullet lodged over his heart, the other in his helmet. His eyes *glow* with fury, and the viewer has no choice but to pity his traitorous brother-in-law.

** Belasarius taking back Carthage from the Vandels with only sixteen-thousand men, even less then the numbers he had at Dara. And succeeded where the efforts of BOTH of the Roman Empires of old backfired with six times that many soldiers.

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

**The Creative Assembly has paid these guys to do a history lesson on the Punic Wars, an educational video series to advertise for VideoGame/TotalWarRomeII!
** The best part was Creative Assembly telling the EC team that they didn't need to mention them, or the game - just teach some history. But EC did both anyway, since they felt the idea was so awesome.
** They enjoyed doing the series so much, they're bringing it back!
*** And now it's officially a weekly show thanks to Patreon!

* Mary Seacole. Despite everything the world had to throw at her, from disease, racial remarks, the loss of her husband and dear mother '''on the same day''', the loss of her hotel in the fire that ravaged Kingstown, she never conceded defeat. Despite the war department and the nurses of London refusing to send her over to Crimea to assist the sick and injured soldiers, she never conceded defeat. In short, she was TheDeterminator personified. No matter what happened, shit was going to get done.
