* Say what you want about ''Endgame'', but [[spoiler: the Quickening Duncan gets from killing Jacob Kell is awesome]].
** As with ''Highlander 2'', say what you will about the film, but goddamn, Creator/MichaelIronside was just so awesome as the [[EvilIsHammy over the top evil]] Katana, you can tell that even with what he had to work with, he was having a ball.

* We get a crowner for one of the few times a mortal scores a kill on an immortal, by [[spoiler:[[YourHeadAsplode shoving a live grenade]] [[HeroicSacrifice in their mouth.]]]]
* The film in general, not restrained to the limitations of the live-action movies, goes quite a bit in showing just how ''powerful'' long-lived immortals can be.

Added DiffLines:

* Brenda attacking the Kurgan with a pipe also qualifies, given she knew she was attacking a six foot tall, immortal, madman wielding a broadsword.
