* 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.

* The entire castle preparing for the Battle of Hogwarts. Starting with Professor [=McGonagall=] saying Voldemort's name when Flitwick refers to him as "You-Know-Who":

** 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.

** The fact that Sybil Trelawney, who was almost a complete JokeCharacter, started dropping [[DeathFromAbove crystal balls on the Death Eaters' heads]] and the first person she took out was ''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Fenrir Greyback]]'', the most dangerous, powerful, and vicious werewolf alive. And note that this is the same werewolf who turned Remus Lupin into a werewolf and single-handedly took down Bill Weasley, who was a professional cursebreaker, making him a very powerful wizard. Bill couldn't take him down with all the jinxes and hexes at his disposal, but Trelawney took him down with, of all spells, ''Wingardium Leviosa''.

*** Added awesome about her assault of Greyback: why was she so viciously going after him? He's after Lavender Brown and Pavarti Patil, her two favorite students. [[MamaBear Not those two on her watch...]]

* In the last part of the battle, after Harry's [[spoiler: resurrection]] and Voldemort's gleeful descent into complete batshit insanity, Nagini's on the loose in Hogwarts and something hits her on the head -- a rock. She slithers over to the staircase to see a bedraggled, injured [[GoLookAtTheDistraction Herm]][[BadAss ione]] standing below her, ready to chuck another rock at the snake. Hermione [[BringIt smiles...]] Nagini, meet ''Hermione's'' balls.

*** Even more awesome is that all of her predictions are technically NEVER wrong. Voldemort returns (Prophesized in book 3. Comes into play in the next book)Harry 'Dies' (Starts predicting this in book 3 and is used as a running gag for subsequent books until book 7) Lavender Brown has to beware the Red-Headed man (Book 3, again, Ends up being Ron in book 6), and Voldemort is 'killed by his own spell (First shown at the end of book 5, finally happens at the end of book 7)How does this tie into the final Battle? Easy, everything that happens during the battle happened because of a small group of people who took what she said seriously, even if it wasn't to the letter.
