* The[[http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Halo:_Reach_radio_conversations hidden radio conversations]] on several of the multiplayer maps cover the last stand of Beta Red, a team of Spartan [=IIs=] that [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome managed to hold off]] ''[[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome two Covenant armored divisions.]]'' until they are caught in the blast radius of a MAC barrage. Doubles as a TearJerker, as only a handful of people will ever remember their sacrifice.

* This is incredibly understated, but at the end of Floodgate, in the cutscene where the Elites and the UNSC are prepping to move to the Ark, you get a bit where a squad of Elites and a mix of Marines and ODSTs are staring each other down. Johnson casually walks up to the Elite squad with an armful of covenant weapons, grabs another one right under them, and doesn't even flinch when the Elites take offense with it and stand up. The part that's awesome is that the Marines instantly stand up in response, fully ready to take on the rough Covenant equal of a Spartan in hand to hand combat to back up one of their own.

** [[ActionSurvivor Las]][[BadassNormal ky]]'s distraction shouldn't be discounted, either. This is a kid who had one foot out the door on a potential medical discharge for a severe allergic reaction to the chemicals used in cryosleep, something he has to deal with his entire career. When the Chief needs a distraction, [[IndyPloy he comes up with a plan on the spot]] while holding [[spoiler: Silva's tags]], then psyches himself up by yelling "Axios!" and ''willingly running into the line of fire to buy the Chief some time. Tough kid.

* Several of the dialogue characters get in "Firefight" also count. Sergeant Stacker, the easiest character to unlock, has some real gems.
-->*Kills an enemy with a headshot* "Closed casket for ''you.''"
-->*Kills an Elite Zealot or other high ranking Covenant soldier* "Man, all those pay grade increases for nothing...*
* The "If They Came to Hear Me Beg" achievement is automatically going to be this. A reference to the above line from ''Halo 2'', it requires the player to survive an otherwise lethal fall by landing on top of an Elite ''and killing them with their knife using the game's new melee kill mechanic.'' One video on Rooster Teeth's ''Fails of the Weak'' series (originally intended to showcase people doing stupid or awesome things in ''Reach'' but later expanded to the entire ''Halo'' series and then any game) features a Spartan having a Banshee shot out from under them and surviving the resulting free fall by landing on an Elite who just ''happened'' to be running past and killing them. The best part? This was during an "Invasion" multiplayer match, and that Elite was another player.

** This squad's sergeant is Peter Stacker, who commanded the Marines who helped the Master Chief attack the Silent Cartographer in the first game and escaped Halo ''without any help from anyone else,'' simply showing back up as ''In Amber Clad'''s chief NCO during the Battle of Cairo station. Before ''that'', he also escaped Reach.
