** To put this in perspective, Neville has become the leader of Dumbledor's Army, turned it into a resistance cell, and conducted a guerilla campaign against the Death Eaters who took over Hogwarts. Throughout book 7, Neville actually seems to be doing a better job of taking the fight to Voldemort's forces than even The Order of the Phoenix.

* Snape giving Detention to Ginny and Co. It doesn't sound awesome at first, but think about it: instead of leaving them to the Carrows (where they would surely be tortured), he sends them into the Forest with their friend Hagrid. And he still maintains his cover as Voldemort's right-hand man.

* During the final confrontation, both BigBad Voldemort and TheDragon Bellatrix each take on three opponents at once. Voldemort faces off with [=McGonagall=], Slughorn and Kingsley, but the really awesome moment here is Hermione, Ginny and Luna teaming up against Bellatrix - bear in mind that Hermione is only 18, Luna just turned 17, and Ginny is still 16, and none of them have completed their schooling, but still manage to hold their own, at least until Molly Weasley's immortal moment detailed above.

* Harry sees [[spoiler:Snape die a nasty death, blood and memories leaking everywhere, and Snape get his last CMOA -- "Look at me." So, depressed, weary, and tired, he drops Ron and Hermione off to mourn over Fred, who just died. Then, he goes to Dumbledore's office and discovers Snape loved his mom, Snape just died without any recognition for being a hero, and now, oh yeah, Harry has to die. After going through all this, the battle, the mourning, and memories, the pain, the shock, he gets up and manages enough sanity to walk out, all alone, without any comfort but his deceased family, and find Voldemort. He has no idea how badly, or even if, Voldemort will torture him. He doesn't know anything else, but just trusts Dumbledore, that Voldemort'll be mortal. He doesn't know if Neville will get Nagini in the end, (which he does, ON FIRE), and he doesn't know if any'll bring Voldemort down in the end. He stands there, silently saying goodbye to Ron, Hermione, and Ginny, and is completely willing to die, on his own]]. Made even worse by the song "Open at the Close" by Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls. If there's a ''Crowning Moment'' of Tearjerking, that song makes it.

** Right before that, [[ActionGirl Ginny]] is taking on [[TheDragon Bellatrix]] ''[[AdaptationalBadass alone]]''. Bear in mind that in the book, she fought Bellatrix alongside [[HeterosexualLifePartners Hermione and Luna]]. In this movie, Hermione is with Ron as they try to kill Nagini, while Luna is fighting other Death Eaters in the background. Also remember that Ginny is still 16 years old at this point.

* Bill, the best-looking Weasley son, is permanently disfigured in The Great Battle. His mother Molly worries that his beautiful fiancee Fleur, whom she has never liked, will now find an excuse to dump him. Instead Fleur gives an indignant speech saying that she is “good-looking enough for two people”. Understandably, Molly’s heart melts.

* The Trio breaking into the Ministry, in general. This is the center of power of all of Wizarding Britain, now controlled by the Death Eaters who are using its power to round up and imprison or kill Muggle-borns and rule the country with an iron fist. As Hermione points out, there's no place in the world more dangerous for Harry Potter and his two known accomplices (who are also a Muggle-born and a blood traitor) than a government building full of people who want them dead and can legally make it happen. And these three seventeen-year-olds infiltrate the place, steal an object owned by one of its highest-ranking officials, set free almost a dozen Muggle-borns and warn them all to get out of the country with their families, and are only discovered as they're fleeing the place. ''And they make it out alive'', along with all of the Muggle-borns they've rescued, and Harry basically flips the bird to its corrupt power structure yet another time before he leaves. The whole concept is just ''awesome''.

* The entire final battle between Harry and Voldemort, which is turned from [[spoiler:Voldemort's wand backfiring a spell on him to a couple BeamOWar matches and some impressive back and forth before Harry defeats the dark lord, takes the wand back, and Voldemort falls to pieces.]] It gets even better, as this is preceded by Harry grabbing Voldemort and ''jumping off one of Hogwarts' towers''. The two then proceed to teleport all over the castle, and are shown to still be fighting each other ''in mid-air'' while doing so.

* Aside from [[spoiler: contributing to Harry's victory by falesly saying he's dead]], there's the way Narcissa Malfoy just grabs Draco's hand and calmly walks across the Hogwarts battlements, not bothering to look back, even as her own husband flounders uselessly behind them. It was like she was saying, "Sorry buddy, you brought us in too deep and now I'm getting us out of it. You can come if you want but either way, ''I don't give a damn.''" It has to be stressed that, at this point, other Death Eaters were also [[spoiler:fleeing in terror]], but they had the good sense to apparate out. [[spoiler:Narcissa just grabs Draco's hand and walks out, ''in full view of Voldemort''. That's practically giving him the finger.]]

* Destroying the diadem deserves special mention. Harry and the others flee out of the Room of Requirement on broomsticks, trying to escape Goyle's wall of Fiendfyre. Once they do, Hermione tosses Harry a basilisk fang and in one swift motion, Harry plunges it in. Then he gets out of the way so Ron can drop kick the diadem BACK into the Fiendfyre to be destroyed for sure. NoKillLikeOverkill indeed!

* Immediatly after this scene, the professors create a dome of protective energy around the school so powerful that it take Voldemort a few tries to take it down. Even so, the attempt [[NotsoInvincibleAfterAll cracks the Elder Wand and leaves him absolutly exhausted]]

* Every single scene that [=McGonagall=] is in, especially when she defends Harry against Snape. Note that in this scene, Snape cleverly takes out the Carrows, who are flanking him, by redirecting some of [=McGonagall=]'s attacks at them -- thus staying under cover while striking a blow against Voldermort. Snape deserves a ''lot'' of cred for that scene, even if [=McGonagall=] stole the show. Notice how neither he nor [=McGonagall=] had any injuries walking (*cough* flying) out of that duel. Try to guess who was pulling the strings there. Pay extremely close attention to that scene, and [[UpToEleven another layer of awesome]] becomes apparent: Snape never returned fire. He was deflecting [=McGonagall's=] spells to the sides, including hitting the Carrows with the deflected spells before he left through the window. Snape puts on the illusion of fighting [=McGonagall=] without doing a thing to hurt her, manages to take out two dangerous Death Eaters while maintaining his DoubleAgent cover, and vacates before anyone important can get hurt. That, dear friends, is what awesome is all about. Also, notice that, even if Snape was thought to be the Death Eather who took down Dumbledore and had oppressed them for a whole year, only when McGonagall enters the fight the students actually take a step back. Yes, her fury scared them ''more'' than that of a powerful dark wizard. It's hard to notice, but once you do its sheer awesomeness.
