* Stans showing enough cunning to wear stolen body armor under his prison outfit, playing dead after getting hit with a plasma caster, and then having the balls to leap on the lead Predator's back and shiv the hell out of him, giving his team time to escape before getting trophy killed. Forget how it's a 'sneak' attack. That is prison battle etiquette, where ''anything'' goes. Considering he's got nothing but his shiv, and he's only a little guy, he ''thoroughly'' earns his Badass points.

Apart from Hanzo's swordfight, it could be the best moment in the film, thanks purely to his line.

* From the "dog"-attack scene, there's Isabelle blowing one's brains out in mid-spring and Royce decapitating another with a machete.

** Let's take it one step further, The Predator, who could have easily just wasted Hanzo with his energy weapons, or even cut him while invisible, [[HonorBeforeReason de-cloaked and accepted Hanzo's challenge for a one on one sword fight]]. No tricks, just [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Warrior]] v.s. [[EverythingsBetterwithSamurai Warrior]].

And so far in the movie those Predators were basically poachers yet Hanzo impressed them to the point the Predator actually honored the challenge.

* The actual film scene doesn't play out that way, but the scene in the trailer in which first one, then ''dozens more'' three-spot laser sights light up one of the characters surely rates a Crowning Moment of HSQ mention.

* Royce's final fight with the leader of the Black Predators. Made up of many little Crowning Moments of Awesome. Stopping Edwin, then boobytrapping his body with grenades to hurt the Predator. Using mud ''plus '' surrounding the camp with fire to avoid being detected, and then beating the hell out of the Predator with a bone axe. A combination of cunning and ''sheer {{badass}}''.
* Nikolai vs. the Predators, involving a few claymores... Nikolai spitting in the Predator's eye before blowing both of them up definitely gained him {{Badass}} points.

** It's the whisper, that little smirk, that inflection in Royce's voice that says, "You forgot who was [[{{Badass}} Alpha Badass]], bitch!" that shows why Adrien Brody was perfect for this role.

** Bilingual bonus as they had him say the nearest equivalent to 'you're one ugly motherfucker' they could find in chechen (actually 'that's quite a snout you have.' to be accurate).

** Also take into account that the Predator was armoured, physically colossal compared to him and probably spent its entire life hunting. He was injured, stripped to the waist, in suit trousers and wielding nothing but an old, uncared for (properly, at least) katana, a weapon that needs meticulous care to be effective (to the extent that they often had their own specialist maintenance workers) and only has a single, flexible edge, and was missing three fingers from {{Yubitsume}}, a practice specifically intended to make it extremely difficult to use a blade with proficiency. Hanzo showed not only immense skill but the fact that he probably had the biggest, roundest balls of the already awesome group. Imagine how much ass he could have kicked if he had been at peak condition... Those Predators should count themselves lucky.

** Added to this, the Modern is described in the profile as being a prodigy. So being able to fair well in THAT state is impressive.
