* 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!

-->'''Neville:''' [Harry and the others] didn't die in vain. (to Voldemort) ''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!''

* ''"Man the boundaries! Protect us! '''Perform your duty to our school!"'''''



* 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.

* 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.

* Not sure if this is the page for it, but the revelation of Dumbledore's past definitely qualifies as awesome writing. Up until now, he's been a kid story version of Gandalf. Now, he gets deconstructed, and we see Dumbledore as a flawed human. While this does put him on a BrokenPedestal, it also makes him far more relatable as a character, in my opinion.

** It was even better watching it in the theater in my personal experience. When Neville came out of nowhere and eliminated Nagini, the audience just burst into applause and cheers.

* The Ron and Hermione movie kiss [[MundaneMadeAwesome may not seem awesome]] until you put it into context. You have a muggleborn and a bloodtraitor... ''[[TheBigDamnKiss making out in the Chamber of Secrets.]]'' There is not a snog in the world able to top that. (Unless you count a [[Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus child of Poseidon and a child of Athena making out at the origin of their parents' infamous rivalry.]])

* Harry's sacrifice is awesome anyway, but the fact that his sacrifice protects every single person who was currently fighting Voldemort from him being able to kill them is even more awesome. It's his mother's protection charm UpToEleven.

** The best part of this speech? [[BallsOfSteel "I know things you DON'T, Tom Riddle!"]] A majority of the witches and wizards watching probably had no clue of Voldemort's real identity until this point.

** Kingsley is also able to hold off the entire army of charging Death Eaters, led by Voldemort himself, with his shield charms to cover Hogwarts' retreat.


Added DiffLines:

* The Death Eaters charging Hogwarts once the shield has been taken down. It's scary, but freaking awesome to see hundreds of Death Eaters charging the castle, screaming loud war cries and a swarm Apparating overhead. Several of Gologomath's giants are also among the charging horde.
** The statues fighting off the giants through sheer strength in numbers, and even deflecting a few Death Eaters' Killing Curses back at them.
