** 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.

* During a mini-episode where Dan was recording without James, he eventually decided to man up and take on Havel the Rock as many times as necessary until he won (prodded by comments from viewers telling him he'd get a super-awesome ring for doing so). He expected he was going to die and die and die again, and indeed the first time he tried he messed up and [[OneHitKill Havel predictably squashed him with his first attack]]. But when he went back for his second go, he killed Havel easily, making the entire sub-episode video a mere 6 minutes long! This was arguably the point where Dan first really [[MemeticMutation "got gud"]] at ''Dark Souls.''

** Fabius, the elected Dictator who would arguably save Rome from Hannibal, managed to out gambit Hannibal during his tenure by recognizing every single bait and refusing to bite.

** The Battle of Cannae. Hannibal not only knew his opponent so thoroughly that he could make them charge him by simply waiting a day, he also created the infamous Pincer Maneuver, whereby he simply had his battle line slowly retreat as the outer edges hold and close in on the enemy. It's poetic that the Punic Wars would be the first in the series of videos, as you will see this tactic again and again in war, always under a different name and with some slight modifications (such as Shaka Zulu's Bull Horns technique or even Admiral Yi's Crane Wing formation), but always with the same general idea.

** Hannibal bringing Elephants into combat against the Roman Army. Dan was not kidding when he said that this story would have fighting monsters. And these were pissed off elephants.

* 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.
