* When she realizes that Mikage was behind the Black Rose duelists, Utena [[TalkToTheFist interrupts his speech with a punch]] strong enough to make him ''[[MegatonPunch fly]]''. And she would have killed him then and there, completely ignoring his BreakingSpeech, had she not noticed his Rose Crest-at which point she challenged him to a duel to destroy him ''more''.

** 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''.

** 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.

* Juri's duels with Utena rate her as a pure BadAss. [[spoiler:She was the one duelist Utena never actually outfought.]]

* 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''.]]

*** 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."]]
