* Peter in ''Prince Caspian'' is essentially a series of [=CMoAs=]. Re-enter the High King of Narnia, who may be an English schoolboy but also happens to be a brilliant leader, seasoned warrior, excellent strategist and wise counsellor. Lewis gets extra points for showing exactly why Peter is the High King over all kings in Narnia without turning him into a MartyStu.
* Edmund gets some of this too. Read the chapter where he turns up to give the challenge to Miraz. Glozelle and Sopespian notice him going to Miraz's tent and have brief swooning session over his aura of badassitude.

* The White Witch tempts Caspian and then Peter with the promise of power, but Edmund gets a Moment of Awesome when he stabs her from behind and breaks her spell. Just the whole look on his face, coupled with how he succumbed to her temptations in the first movie but obviously learned something from the experience.
** The entire White Witch encounter was only in TheFilmOfTheBook. The hag and the Werewolf in the book only got as far as ''suggesting'' raising her - though Peter's and Edmund's BigDamnHeroes moment where they burst in in time to stop the ritual from starting is still pretty {{Badass}}.

The entire White Witch encounter was only in TheFilmOfTheBook. The hag and the Werewolf in the book only got as far as ''suggesting'' raising her - though her. Why? Peter's and Edmund's BigDamnHeroes moment where they burst in just in time to stop the ritual from starting is still in pretty {{Badass}}.{{Badass}} style.



* When the Pevensies meet Trumpkin, and he is unconvinced that the Horn actually called them to Narnia, Edmund [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming offers to fight him (in place of Peter) so that if he loses, it won't be such a loss for them]], but if he wins, it will be in their favour. His fight is awesome, and so is Susan's archery competition, mainly due to Trumpkin's growing disbelief as he's bested by schoolchildren.
* Aslan roars to awaken the dryads (tree nymphs). And not just ''any'' roar, one that echos and carries across a huge distance and rolls across the plains like thunder. Done epically well in the radio drama.
* Reepicheep at the end, defending his honor (or rather, defending his right to defend his honor) to [[CrystalDragonJesus Aslan]] himself.

--> '''Reepicheep:''' Highest of all High Kings, we mice have not been blessed with great stature. If we did not tend to our honor, certain fools who measure worth by inches might seek to take advantage of us.
** His mice get one when he gets his tail cut off. Lucy heals him, but her cordial can't restore his severed tail. Whereupon the mice draw their swords to cut off their own tails, declaring that they will not retain an honor denied their leader. Which could also double as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. Either way, Aslan is so pleased by their devotion that he gives Reepicheep his tail back.
* Aslan, the girls and the Old Narnians running around putting Narnia to rights while the battle is being won -- the nicest, gentlest RoaringRampageOfRevenge ever (although it works best if you don't apply FridgeLogic to questions such as whether it's really okay to turn small boys into pigs because they've been bratty to their teacher).
** Actually, the book doesn't explicitly say that they got turned into pigs; it says that the boys were never seen again, but a bunch of pigs turned up; which could mean anything or nothing.
* The Telmarines attempt to retreat back over the river, so Aslan calls up the River-God.
** And Aslan's roar that summons him. It's so powerful that it stops the Telmarines in their tracks, and the shot from above in the film emphasizes it as you see the water under the bridge ripple outward.

*** Also doubles as both a BadassBoast and a StealthInsult. Edmund is referring to his throne name of King Edmund the Just. He's mocking Miraz's lack of knowledge of who he's dealing with, referencing the fact that Aslan (a figure Telemerines fear and despise, if they don't dimiss him as outright fantasy) proclaimed him (Edmund) King over Narnia rubbing Miraz's face in the fact that the Narnia people aren't as dead as he would like and they consider him a usurper, AND corrects and rebukes Miraz ''in front of his own advisors'' while establishing himself as Miraz's equal, effectively proclaiming Peter higher ranked than Miraz. Less than 15 words and he manages all this. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Edmund the Just, King of Narnia
