* Sloan's calling out Eragon in ''Brisingr'' is a truly magnificent WhatTheHellHero moment.
* Elva gets a similar moment later on in the book. When Eragon attempts to [[spoiler: strip her powers from her]], she calls him out for his self-righteousness, and points out that he has no right to do something like that to her simply because he didn't approve of her. "That way lies the depraved pleasure of controlling others for your own satisfaction. [[NotSoDifferent Galbatorix would approve]]." Eragon is so shocked that he is ''brought to his knees'' and is ''unable to even phrase a reply'', because he can't think of anything to defend himself against her accusations.

* A soldier in Feinster continued the example when he confronted Eragon, by refusing to back down, standing his ground against Eragon despite his elven powers, and calling him a selfish glory-seeker. "Well, I curse you, Shadeslayer! I curse you with all my heart! May you leave this land and never return!"

*** He spent the 2nd day thoroughly studying anything of use for his plans.

** [[spoiler:And before this, when a small force is charging towards their camp, he has every single person besides himself hide.

* From a narrative standpoint, the buildup and [[TheReveal Reveal]] of [[GiantFlyer Shruikan]]. The reader left stunned by how big he's ''implied'' to be from outside Uru'baen. When he actually shows himself, you can ''feel'' how dumbstruck Eragon is by how freaking [[{{Kaiju}} HUGE]] he is, through some surprisingly good wording by Paolini, with only a small bit of PurpleProse.
--> The dragon was enormous. Eragon at first had difficulty comprehending that the entire shape before them was a single living creature. He saw part of Shruikan's corded neck and thought he was seeing the main part of the dragon's body; he saw the side of one of Shruikan's hind feet and mistook it for a shin. A fold of a wing was an entire wing in his mind.

* Not an epic battle, or a well-planned siege, but Roran again, and still awesome nevertheless. In ''Inheritance'', Katrina is growing increasingly frustrated doing laundry, when Roran offers to do it to give her a break. She protests because people would think it unseemly, but he ''insists'' on doing it, indicating that he really doesn't care ''what'' other people would think and that it would be good to do something with his hands other than swinging his hammer.

Especially since for a medieval setting, this kind of sight would probably be openly mocked because it's not traditional... but try it on Roran, and he'd DeathGlare anyone foolish enough to try.

* In ''Eldest,'' [[spoiler: Murtagh]] earned the respect of many when he [[spoiler: announced his return by beat Eragon up, even ''after'' Eragon's training]]. Even the fact that he had just done it to [[spoiler:the protagonist]], did little to diminish the awesomeness. Thorn also cemented his badassery by [[spoiler: holding his own against and wounding Saphira even when he was severely injured and Saphira was armored.]] According to WordOfGod, Murtagh would have overpowered Eragon like this even if Eragon hadn't just been through a battle.

** This also counts as a moment for the hero himself. If he were like the elves, he'd probably just ignore Elva, but he was willing to at least listen to other people.

* The steps Eragon takes at the very end of the series to avoid becoming another "Galbatorix" is pretty amazing as well. He's more than aware of how easy it would be for him to become a powerful, unmatched ruler, and yet he resists all temptation and takes steps to ensure he will not be made king or leader. It may not seem amazing, but turning down power like that isn't easy as it may look.

* Sloan's calling out Eragon in ''Brisingr'' is a truly magnificent WhatTheHellHero moment, and Eragon's reaction subtracts the "Hero" part from the SociopathicHero normally associated with him.
