* In the Anniversary edition, the terminal in "Keyes." We already knew from ''The Flood'' that Keyes was resisting the Flood's efforts to take the data from him, but the terminal ''shows'' Keyes' resistance, it shows the pain and fear and sheer BodyHorror of being integrated into the Flood, and it features the Gravemind taunting Keyes over and over about how the Flood have all the knowledge they need....but Keyes ''[[{{Determinator}} does not break]]''.
* Bit of a suversion in that while Keyes managed to keep alot of data from the Flood and Gravemind, he did not keep them obtaining Earth's location as he and we believed as The Forerunner Saga reveals the Flood/Gravemind knew the location of Earth well over 100,000 years prior to the events of the first game. Still no less awesome though.

* Cortana gets one of her own at the very end. As the Gravemind slithers aboard High Charity, flood forms filling the halls to the brim, he begins mono lounging to Cortana, coming to a close when he basically tells her he will torture her for information in a very intimidating and scary way. And Cortana isn't impressed in the least.
---> "I will ask...and you will answer!"
---> (Cue Cortana appearing in the middle of the Floodmatter and tenticals, looking determined and not at all afraid.
---> (Sarcastically, but utterly calm) "Alright...shoot."
* Towards the end of "Gravemind", you stumble upon a huge fight between a group of [[EliteMook Ultra Elites]], [[DemonicSpiders Hunters]] and the Brutes. Cortana advises that you might want to sit this one out so they can kill each other, but you'll find it hard to sit still and not join the fray once an instrumental version of Breaking Benjamin's "Blow Me Away" starts playing. Sadly the track got replaced in the Anniversary edition, but with the press of a button you can get the original experience by switching to the original Xbox version.

** The trailer is a short 2 minute 30+ second video detailing a single man's journey, named Tarkov in the trailer, from recruit to soldier. The music in the background, now called [[https://youtu.be/56cnOkQFRwo?t=57s The Politics and the Life]] just adds to the intensity and harshness Tarkov went through.

** Slight subverted given that we later find out the Primordial survived due to transferring it's essence into the Gravemind but still awesome.

* One simple line that seals "The Great Journey" as one of the best videogame moments of ''all time'':
---> "The Hunters have come to our aid, Arbiter! They will fight by our side!"



--->'''Johnson''': "Back when I joined the corps we didn't have any fancy shmancy tanks! We had sticks, two sticks! And a rock for the whole platoon! And we had to SHARE the rock! So buck up! You're one lucky Marine!"

* Toward the end, the Arbiter comes across of group of Brutes stationed next to a group of holding cells. Inside of the cells are a couple of Hunters and a couple of Elite Councilors. The Arbiter has the option to quietly shoot out the force fields. You can guess what happens next.
** Basically that whole level was a CMOA ''just'' for having friendly Hunters in it. As everyone knows, Hunters are a [[DemonicSpiders royal pain to kill]] when you're against them, so naturally it feels good to let the enemy be on the receiving end of that pain for a change.

This includes Buck leaping onto its back, the other two tackling it, with Buck finally stabbing it in the neck with his knife.

* Even a comparatively minor character like Gunnery Sgt. Reynolds gets one, telling a Brute interrogating him, under heavy torture, to "Kiss...My...Ass". Of course, he is voiced by NathanFillion. Reynolds was being held in the air by that Brute... ''by his throat''. The fact that he was able to ''breathe'' is impressive in and of itself.
