** 'I remember you came for Twyla,' said Susan, stepping forward. 'That damn governess had told her what happens to little girls who suck their thumbs, remember? Remember the poker? I bet you needed a hell of a lot of sharpening afterwards...' The creature lowered its head, stepped carefully around her in as polite a way as it could manage, and clanked on down the stairs after Peachy.

* Mr. Teatime is a {{Badass}} PsychoForHire Assassin, who maintains a baseline level of awesome that is so high that [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]] are less likely to show up against the background. It could be argued that his entire ''appearance'' is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Unless he's terror personified. Alternately, he could be both. Especially given his ability to find purchase on thin air and tickle someone with a knife through several layers of clothing.

* Death's true {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}} comes in this book, at the very end, when, [[spoiler:finally free from the constraints he had been forced to adhere to until the safety of the Hogfather was assured, he obliterates a huge number of Auditors]]. What really makes this more interesting is that you never actually see him do it, you simply hear his speech to them and witness the final sequence when he seems to grow larger before them and utter, [[AC:Ho. Ho. Ho.]]

Added DiffLines:

* One of the funniest Moments of Awesome is in the Live Action Adaptation when the Oh God of Hangovers drinks the condensed glass of pure sobriety that the wizards created. A stirring, epic "divine" theme accompanies his consumption of it, as he IS a god, and his awakening is treated as appropriate for a being that, while silly, ''is'' divine.

What really makes this such a Crowning Moment of Awesome is that you never actually see him do it, you simply hear his speech to them and witness the final sequence when he seems to grow larger before them and utter, [[AC:Ho. Ho. Ho.]] In his very most chilling monotone. I actually ''cheered''. People on the bus must've thought I was out of my mind.
