** ''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.

* 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.

** Reacher also manages to successfully talk his way out of [[spoiler: the profiler's coworkers]] trying to pin the crimes on him to avoid having to admit that their coworker was a serial killer.

* Reacher fighting off two men with baseball bats [[FunnyMoments although the men keep missing with every hit due to how small the room is]].
* The car chase between Reacher, the bad guys, and the police.

is]]. Reacher takes one blow to the back of the head, which was mitigated by the cudgel hitting him mostly hitting the door frame. He just rolls into the tub and lets the two thugs fall over themselves after him.
* The car chase between Reacher, the bad guys, and the police. After losing his own quarry, Reacher just casually walks out of his car (which is still in gear rolling down the boulevard) and then just fades into the crowd (who are happy to hide him).

* He survives being blown up in Sixty One Hours by standing out of the way of the explosion and holding on to a pole anchored in the floor so the blast wave narrowly misses him.

** Reacher's final fight with [[TheDragon Charlie]] also counts. Reacher delivering a very satisfying NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on him in retaliation for being framed over the death of [[DisposableWoman Sandy]].

Added DiffLines:

** And if that wasn't enough, Reacher in the movie like Cruise is a lefty, and while he is shown firing similar weapons in two previous scenes both from his right shoulder and his left, because the weapons are setup for people with dominant right hands, Reacher is visible uncomfortable firing from his dominant hand, the left. In this scene he holds the weapon with his left hand, hence the need to remove the optical sights (setup on the wrong side of the weapon for him) and use the iron sights.
