** Jayne and Simon are being handcuffed and covered by two armed Feds. Not willing to accept this unfortunate turn of events, they take ''both Feds'' down, ''while'' both of them are still handcuffed. The best part is how Jayne manages to snap one guard's neck, and Simon takes down the second with a surgical, incapacitating kneecap to the throat, proving (yet again) that even TheMedic can be a BadAss on this show.

* An implied one in ''Objects in Space''. [[{{Badass}} Jubal]] [[BountyHunter Early]] fights Mal and wins. And yet when Book turns out to still be up, Jubal seeks him out and ambushes him so he doesn't have a chance to fight back. From a ''single conversation'', Jubal could tell that he could not even risk getting in a fight with Book.

** Don't forget the awesome line Mal gives to the Scavenger Captain as he leaves Serenity:
---> '''Captain''': [[NotSoDifferent You would have done the same.]]
---> '''Mal''': ''[Holding him at gunpoint]'' [[WhatYouAreInTheDark We can already see I haven't.]] Now get the hell off my ship.



** The Train Job: [[AccidentalAimingSkills "I was aiming for his head."]]

** The Train Job: [[AccidentalAimingSkills "I was aiming for his head."]]"]] And he did that while high on tranquilizers.



* The infamous Vera scene in "Our Mrs. Reynolds". Granted Jayne ruins it when Mal figures out exactly what Jayne is really doing, but for the moments before that Jayne genuinely came across as a badass that even Mal is wary of, the fact that Mal really appears worried before the ball drops seals it. The moment is doubled when Jayne explains exactly how he got Vera, his tone when he says it just screams that six wasn't even close to enough.
---> '''Jayne''': Six men came to kill me one time. The best of 'em carried this.
** Then later on Jayne uses Vera [[spoiler: to snipe a window in the ship-killing electro-net that is about to ensnare Serenity, sending the pirates manning it into space, and then shoots out the couplings that are powering the net. Yep, Jayne Cobb took out a starship sized emplacement with a rifle!]]

* A subtle one at the beginning of "The Message:" while walking through a crowded fair with Inara, a child bumps him. Mal, without breaking stride, grabs the brat and takes back his wallet from the pickpocket.

** To make it even better, he just repeats exactly what he said earlier to Crow to the next henchman with a straight face.

* How about the end of the pilot?

** What makes this even better is that he had no prior warning that the Fed had escaped. Without even questioning what was going on he just pulled the trigger.
*** Which is why I am a proud owner of a [[ShootTheDog Mal Shot First]] [[http://www.cafepress.com/+mal_shot_first,55999565 t-shirt]].
*** Oh, he had some warning. He hears a shot go off inside his ship (Dobson fired a round just before the whole standoff started), walks in, sees Dobson with a hostage... 2 + 2 = '''''BANG.''''' Pure and simple.

* And the nekkid scenes at the beginning and end of "Trash". That grin!

* Wash and Kaylee outsmarting some of Burgess's men in "Heart of Gold", leaving them trapped inside Serenity. Admittedly so were Wash and Kaylee at that point, but still.


Added DiffLines:

** Doubley impressive for an un-armed cargo/transport vessel. No weapons, still badass.

* Jayne's speech at the end of "Jaynestown". Added bonus for knocking down his own statue. Thought that's also a TearJerker moment.
