** Taking down the tigerman in the stairwell by giving him a facefull of Doc Martens and then ''surfing'' down the steps on his back was pretty awesome too.

* ''Foxglove Summer'' has Peter using a magic cane on a {{unicorn}}. The unicorns were terrifying for pretty much the entire book until that point. After that confrontation, the unicorn flinched whenever Peter looked at it funny.

* Despite Peter himself not liking rap, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXW2-qbSKpA this music video]] is pretty awesome.

** According to another survivor in ''Foxglove Summer'', Peter is not giving Nightingale enough credit. Taking out the Tigers were the least of his feats. Nightingale is described as being just shy of godlike in that battle.

* During the climax of Broken Homes, Peter outsmarts the [[MagnificentBastard Faceless Man]] during their RooftopConfrontation. The BigBad jumps off the soon-to-be-blown-up building, using a spell to soften his impact. Peter jumps him and clings on, knowing that to shake him off, the guy would have to stop chanting, thus laying them both out for a rather rough landing, after which Peter [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown goes to town on the guy]] [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown with his trusty size eleven's]]. [[spoiler: And then Leslie finally gets to use her taser...]]

** So as not to spoil an awesome scene, but said battle between Nightingale [[spoiler: and the Night Witch include him unzipping the front of a barn as a distraction so he can walk in the back, doing something that made a cottage look as if it had been hit by a freight train and one or other of the two lifting the entire roof off the aforementioned barn and then bringing it back down. All of this without even creasing Nightingale's suit.]] Suddenly it makes much more sense why Nightingale was on rearguard at Ettersburg.

* Both of Peter's first and last encounters with Tyburn in the first book could count as this [[spoilers:In the first, she almost manages to make him drink from a fountain in her garden, which would place him under her complete control.]] It probably would have worked too [[spoilers:if he didn't use magic to blow it up]] The last meeting between the two involves Peter basically giving Ty a speech about how he's the wrong man for her to be fucking with.]] Keep in mind of how power all of the goddesses of the river actually are [[spoilers:and Peter is in Mama Thames' home at the time...surrounded by all of them.]]...now that takes some serious balls

* Although we don't get to see much of it, the battle between Nightingale [[spoiler: and the Night Witch in the fourth book. The same book also features Peter outsmarting the Faceless Man and ''almost'' capturing him.]]

* Though it is only a small moment Peter finally managing to produce ''Lux'' is pretty awesome.
