** Plus, there's how before all of this takes place... [[spoiler: she aknowledges that her desire to be [[LadyAndKnight the Prince to Anthy's Princess]] [[WhiteKnight was NOT what Anthy truly needed]]. That she had been '''playing the "Prince" role wrong''' by helping Anthy to bolster her own ego, not truly caring about ''Anthy's'' needs and desires.]] Such BrutalHonesty is very needed.



* The last sword duel in the series between Utena and [[spoiler: Akio. The planetarium is projecting illusions of the previous versions of the arena, and Utena is asking what the point of the arena existing is because of how much it hurts Anthy. When Akio says she chose to be the Rose Bride, Utena declares she'll be the one to free Anthy. Her reaffirmation of understanding what it means to free Anthy and that she'll become a prince shocks Akio so badly it causes the castle above the arena to shatter. Akio is so thrown off by Utena the only way he could beat her was by getting Anthy to stab her in the back. He was ''scared of her''.]]

** This is specially powerful because it means that [[spoiler: Utena aknowledges that, up until then, her desire to be [[LadyAndKnight the Prince to Anthy's Princess]] [[WhiteKnighting was NOT what Anthy truly needed]]. That she had been '''playing the "Prince" role wrong''' by helping Anthy to bolster ''her'' own ego, not exactly caring about ''Anthy's'' needs and desires. But nope, she's not doing it again: she'll TRULY help Anthy from now on.]] Such BrutalHonesty is very needed.

* Can't help adding Utena herself in the final episode...[[spoiler: First, rejecting the "[[StayInTheKitchen princess]]" role to duel Akio. Then, [[{{Determinator}} not]] [[PluckyGirl faltering]] in her intention to free Anthy even after being stabbed by her. Next, pushing Akio away and freeing Anthy's true self even after the [[{{Anvilicious}} sword of her heart breaks]]. And finally, becoming the Prince in the most painful sense possible, taking the attack of the Million Swords, still never giving up.]]

*** The music makes the scene. The whole car chase is full of suspenseful music and then when the castle appears and Anthy grows more resolute, Rinbu-revolution triumphantly plays. It's enough to make the audience cheer for her.

** And in the movie, Utena fighting against Saionji with a ''broom'' while he has a ''real'' katana after he slaps Anthy quickly established that this was ''not'' the TV series Utena. It was reckless, sure, but awesome.

* The last moments of ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' raised Anthy's stock for a lot of people [[spoiler: when she basically tells Akio where to shove it and walks out of Ohtori to find Utena, despite the protests of the suddenly very distraught ManipulativeBastard. "By all means, stay in this cozy coffin of yours and continue to play prince. But I have to go now. She isn't gone at all, she's merely vanished from your world."]]

-->'''Utena''': And I promise you I am going to be the one who frees her!
-->'''[[spoiler: Akio]]''': I don't think you understand what that means.
-->'''Utena''': I UNDERSTAND! I'm gonna be a prince! You hear me?!

* For all of Nanami's flaws, she indeed has some awesome moments:
** In Episode 10, though she's definitely not on par with the other duelists, she takes Utena off guard with her speed, but loses the duel rather soon. However, Nanami still continues to fight, drawing a hidden knife and proceeds to attack Utena once more, now wielding two blades and even managing to slash her rose. Eventually, Nanami has Utena ''corned'' and Touga has to intervene to ''stop her''.
** Episode 31 depends whether you hate or love Nanami, or better said, rooting for Keiko: when Nanami finds out Keiko [[spoiler: has been seeing Touga behind her back and thus betrayed her, Nanami shows her face from hiding and ''bitch slaps'' Keiko.]] Now, this was after Nanami [[spoiler: unreasonably had Keiko kicked out of her extracurricular activities and ostricized by her friends for ''sharing an umbrella for a soaking Touga in the rain'']], so if you're rooting Keiko, she [[spoiler: responds to the slap by ''knocking Nanami on her ass with a right hook!'']]
*** However, it all came to a head when [[spoiler: Keiko, Yuuko, and Aiko decide to stage a coup and firmly put Nanami in her place]] since they feel they don't need to rely on her status anymore. She shows them that she did NOT need said status to keep all three in line. [[http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/albums/Series/Episodes/Akio_Arc/32/Series_ep32_152.jpg?m=1380825089 The next scene shows them having learned their lesson quite thoroughly.]]
*** Lastly, she fights Utena for the last time [[spoiler: with only her sword, foregoing her dagger]], and gives the latter an even ''harder'' time than before. As the sword/dagger combination resembled her sharing her strength with Touga, the fact that she's fighting with more ferocity with [[spoiler: just one sword]] proves she's more powerful than she's believed to be.

** The notion that the Shadow Girls went from secondary characters who relate the moral of each episode through bizarre shadow plays to the reveal that there is an entire news studio full of them working to help Utena and Anthy reach the outside world.
