* A moment of awesome has to go to Neville's grandmother, Augusta Longbottom, even though it's [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome only spoken of and not shown]]. When a wizard tries to resist the Death Eaters, Death Eaters kidnap any family members they can use to force compliance. When Neville starts up a rebellion at Hogwarts, Death Eaters go after his gran. [[NeverMessWithGranny It doesn't end well for them.]] ''"Little old witch, living alone... they probably didn't think they had to send anyone particularly powerful. Anyway, Dawlish is still in St. Mungo's and Gran's on the run."'' Bear in mind, Dawlish was a top Auror with "Outstanding" in all of his N.E.W.T.s.

Also bear in mind that this woman probably hasn't had to do any actual fighting since Voldemort fell; she's had ''sixteen years of peace'' and is ''still'' able to unleash the ever loving shit onto Dawlish and, on top of it all, she manages to ''run away into hiding, inform Neville of her location through letter'' '''''and''''', ''get to Hogsmeade, avoid the alarms, fight in the battle and live.''

* Neville's big speech, where he rallies support from his troops right in front of Voldemort. After being the resident ButtMonkey through most of the series, he displays the sort of balls normally used to destroy buildings. Capped off with the supremely awesome "Harry and the others didn't die in vain. ''But you will.'' Because you're wrong! Harry's heart did beat for us! For ''all'' of us! *pulls [[CoolSword The Sword of Gryffindor]] from the Sorting Hat* ''This is not over!''"

* In a bit of dark and twisted way, the ways the Horcrux Locket attempted to resist destruction were both... intrigued and terrifying. First, as soon as Harry laid a single touch on Gryffindor's sword in the lake, the locket was able to detect the thing that intend to destroy it, so it ''immediately'' attempted to choke Harry to death. Then there's its MindRape on Ron in an attempt to make him terrified and hesitated to destroy it.
** In a nut shell, this is one of the Horcruxes (besides Nagini) which is so [[{{Determinator}} determined]] to resist its destruction from its enemies. Riddle's Diary is dangerous and lethal, but it is immediately vulnerable by Basilisk's Fang's single stab. Gaunt's Ring has deadly curse to protect it, but the curse is only activated when someone wears it and it's also immediately vulnerable by Gryffindor's sword from Dumbledore. Neither Hufflepuff's Cup and Ravenclaw's Diadem show any protective curses and they are destroyed pretty fast (while it's unknown in the book as it's not shown, in the film the Cup doesn't even attempt to resist its destruction. The Diadem isn't easily destroyed, but only because Malfoy's gang disturb the heroes before they destroy it).
** Possible fridge awesomeness: Hufflepuff's Cup and Ravenclaw's Diadem show no protective curses. Is it possible that they realize they've turned into Horcruxes and somehow [[ICannotSelfTerminate expect someone]] [[HeroicSacrifice to destroy them]]?

* Kingsley gets a brief one: During the battle of Hogwarts, he actually kills a Death Eater ''mid-Apparation''. As in, he turns to a window, somehow realizes that a Death Eater is going to Apparate through it in about a second, and throws a curse killing the guy before his feet ever touch the ground. [[spoiler:[[AsskickingEqualsAuthority Guess who ends up in charge of Wizarding Britain when the dust settles?]]]]

*Daniel Radcliffe deserves a nod here; when the Order goes to move Harry from the Dursleys' house to safety, everyon except Moody and Hagrid get a sip of polyjuice potion to change into Harry lookalikes. Daniel basically has to impersonate all of them, including Fleur and Hermione. HeReallyCanAct is in full effect here.

* 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!
