** What makes this part even more epic though is that Reacher killed her BY ACCIDENT. The scene is setup that Reacher and the tagalong heroine for the book have only just arrived with seconds to spare before the victim dies, they crash into the bathroom, Reacher hurls the villain out of the way and into a wall and they manage to save the victim. It's only when they realise the villain has been suspiciously silent that they look and see Reacher broke her neck.

** Earlier in the novel, the man in question tries to intimidate Reacher, referencing the fact that his henchman are all Special Forces veterans. Reacher responds with a BadassBoast, stating that he could beat them all hand-to-hand if he had to. None of them voice disagreement.

** ''Killing Floor'': After being sent to prison with businessman Paul Hubble, an inmate crushes Hubbles glasses and tries to make Hubble his bitch. Reacher headbutts the guy hard enough to break most of the bones in his face and then intimidates one of the others to give Hubble ''his own glasses'' as replacements.
*** In the same book, on his RoaringRampageOfRevenge to avenge [[spoiler:the murder of his older brother Joe]], he visits all kinds of pain on the villains, including throat-slitting and blasts with a .44 Desert Eagle loaded with soft-nosed shells. (Note that soft-nosed .44 slugs blow holes in people the size of garbage cans). Another he drowns in a pool. Yet another he shoots with the .44 and then sets on fire.

* He survives the ignition of an absolutely massive tank of jet fuel in 61 Hours by climbing up a stairwell that's feeding the flames (which are shooting up as massive geysers from the tops of the adjacent ventilation shafts) with fresh oxygen. This means he makes the entire climb against a constant, hurricane-force wind.

*** The BigBad Beau Borker hears that Reacher once won the Wimbledon (not the tennis tournament, a Marine sniping competition). So he proposes a sniping competition with .50 Barret Rifles, six shots each shooting from 600 yards. Beau only hits with one shot. Reacher [[ExactlyWhatIAimedAt seems to have missed all six shots... until they walk down the range and discover he drilled a capital B in a tree from 1000 yards with a surface area around the same of Beau's face]]. ZING!

* Any of the times in ''Echo Burning'' where he's able to display his absolute contempt for the racist Greer family. This includes telling the matriarch that it would be easy and a pleasure to snap her spine, and [[spoiler:when their house ends up burning down, turning the rhetoric around on them with "Go live in the barn. It's where people like you belong."]]

* ''RunningBlind'': Just before the DirtyCop FBI profiler could fully hypnotize her sixth victim to suffocate herself, Reacher barges in, grabs her back, and flat-fuck kills her in one punch.
