* Episodes 71 and 72 have the Battle of Marr-Adetta, the LastDance of Alexander Bewcock and the Free Planets Star Fleet. And truly deserves the trope:

* A meta example: For decades, this show was perceived to be nigh impossible to license and bring to the US because of its sheer scale and the amount of work needed to put into it. Many fans were convinced they'd never be able to own their beloved series...until Anime Expo 2015 changed everything when Creator/VizMedia announced they were licensing the novels, and SentaiFilmworks announced they licensed the anime. All for US release. To say fans rejoiced would be a Herculean understatement, especially considering that Creator/SentaiFilmworks is universally considered one of the most disliked anime licensing companies in recent years due to their average-to-poor DVD releases and dubbing quality. Whether they'll be successful or not remains to be seen, but today's a good day to be a LOGH fan.

** With Iserlohn now worthless, Yang has been authorized to abandon it, and is preparing to do so to try and kill Reinhard in battle ([[KeystoneArmy as his death without a successor would cause infighting among his admirals]], [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow and both know this and that the other knows]]). Reuenthal doesn't know Yang's goal, but he knows he'll evacuate and launches a series of spoiling attack to do as much damage as possible and disturb the already difficult task of moving over 5,000,000 people. This is Attemborough's chance to shine: to give the Fortress' defenders a morale boost and try and force Reuenthal to give them pause, he leaves the Fortress with 500 transports escorted by 2,000 ships, and when Lennenkampf gave chase the warships escaped... And the transports ''exploded'', causing heavy losses and spreading chaos in the enemy force, now vulnerable to the outnumbered Alliance forces. Lennenkampf successfully retreats and returns to the main fleet, but between the transports and the Alliance warships he lost 2,000 ships (bonus point for Lennenkampf Fleet including the ''Garga Falmul'', the largest ship in the Imperial fleet and the mightiest after the [[spoiler: WaveMotionGun-equipped]] ''Asgrimm''). And convinced Reuenthal to not chase the Alliance fleet when they finally leave.
** Finally, Yang leaves Iserlohn. The Imperial Fleet enters, and disarms the bombs that would otherwise have blown up the Fortress... And Yang is ''happy''. Wait, what? [[spoiler: Turns out the bombs were a distraction for the ''real'' present: a computer sabotage that, if necessary, would allow Yang to easily recapture the Fortress. And when the time came, ''he did''.]] Now you know why even Reuenthal, [[GenreSavvy who knows Yang relies on his reputation to make his enemies exitate and second-guess him while he prepared an underhanded but relatively simple tactic]], ''still'' fears him and his trickery. [[spoiler: Reuenthal did suspect the bombs were just a divertion, but decided to not verify, because whatever Yang's plans were they didn't matter as long as he wasn't in command when he returned, and Yang could not have another chance anyway]].

Added DiffLines:

** An addition is that as the purpose of the Imperial attack was a diversion, and winning before the other half of the fleet manages to secure Fezzan would have been pointless, Reuenthal wasn't really going all-out and concentrated on stalling for time; nevertheless, to put up a convincing act, his attacks were actually dangerous. As Yang noted, the Empire didn't skimp out just because it was a diversion.

* In episode 25, we learn that, with the Lippstadt League out of the way, duke Klaus von Lichtenlade, the Minister of State (that, with the Prime Minister position vacant, was the ''de facto'' head of the government) was plotting against Reinhard. In episode 26, Oberstein uses [[spoiler: the attempt on Reinhard's life that ended with Kircheis' death]] as the excuse Reinhard's admirals need to act against him, so what the admiral do? Well, have you ever seen ''thousands of warships landing in the same city and its outskirts with tanks parachuting down''? Because that's how they returned to the capital to arrest Lichtenlade and his accomplices.

** [[BigDamnHeroes Muller shows up and attacks Bewcock on the flank]], splitting his fleet in two. Doesn't matter: turns out Bewcock's goal is to ''kill Reinhard or die trying'', and as long as the ''Brunhild is shot down he wins. Carlsen's squadron coming into range... And Reinhard, having planned for this and knowing that by now he's low on energy, ''stops him as if he crushed on a wall'';

** Reinhard being Reinhard. Rockwell Killed Rebelo in an attempt to buy his own safety? Executed with his co-conspirators for treason while pointing out that Fahrenheit changing sides at the end of the Imperial Civil War and their actions were completely different. Those bureaucrats engaged in civil disobedience? Pardoned and ''praised for their courage'', as if they had been in power the Alliance would have never fallen. Republicans trying to assassinate him and killing themselves when Bittenfeld's men catch them preparing? Have Bittenfeld return the bodies to the families and ''not'' punish them, as otherwise he'd become another Rudolph von Goldenbaum. He also finally acknowledges the Free Planets Alliance as a legitimate government ''of the past''. All of this has the effect of conquering the hearts of most people on Heinessen and preventing a bloodbath.

** The bureaucrats on Heinessen refusing to surrender public documents to the occupying Imperial troops because there's no law authorizing them to claim said documents, knowing well they'll be killed for this. Two of them even told the Imperial soldiers that ''there's no such thing as an emperor''.

** João Rebelo's DyingMomentOfAwesome. Having spent most of his term as Chairman of the High Council as an appeaser in a vain and desperate attempt to preserve the Alliance, even trying to get Yang executed because Lennenkampf believed him involved in a number of anti-Imperial activities (he was right, but there were no proof), when admiral Rockwell and his subordinates arrive to kill him with the excuse he would have him executed if the Empire asked he calmly confronts him, admits as such and then dismantle his excuse, starting by simply pointing out he's no Yang and the Empire would have no reason to demand the head of someone so worthless, before standing up from his chair and ''daring'' the soldiers who were training guns on him to shoot him.
