* Chapter 3 brings us the long-awaited rematch between Kenshin and Yahiko and it doesn't disappoint. The opening blow mirrors their first duel (though with their targets reversed), but this time Yahiko catches Kenshin's strike with his hand and proceeds to take the initiative in the fight. Even so, Kenshin's skill has not diminished with both of them are unable to land a meaningful blow. This leads to them pitting the Hiten Mitsurugi Style's Kuzu Ryu Sen against the Kamiya Kasshin Style's Hadome/Hawatari. The result? [[spoiler:Kenshin is victorious, but not before Yahiko's manages to block ''five'' of the nine ''instantaneous'' strikes of the Kuzu Ryu Sen.]]

[['' Ashitarō zenka ari'' and ''Hokkaido arc'']]
* [[spoiler: Ashitaro going up against the leader of the remnants of Shishio's forces. Not only does he end up tanking mallet hits (from a trick mallet that has an effect similar to the ''Futae no Kiwami''), but he ends up smashing part of it, while holding his own against said leader. And that's before he finally gets enraged enough to [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield draw the Mugenjin]]. Had Kenshin not intervened, Ashitaro may have killed the leader and maybe gone down [[StartOfDarkness the path of Shishio]].]]

** A more open one [[spoiler: doubles with DyingMomentOfAwesome, as Magdaria chooses to go TakingTheBullet rather than letting Elsten (the Dutch Ambassador and pretty much the only person who, alongside Kenshin, can save the JapaneseChristian colony) die. She dies in Sano's arms in complete peace, finally free from her bitterness.]]

* Shishio's main [=CMoA=] was defeating not one, not two, not three, but ''four'' of the most powerful fighters in Japan all at once. Admittedly, they've all come out of brutal fights but the ease with which he completely defeats their ultimate techniques (or, in Sano's case, taking it head on and not even flinching, then defeating the MadeOfIron Sano in one punch) marks him as the most {{Badass}} Rurouni Kenshin character right there.

* Yahiko's got quite a few. He beats [[spoiler:Henya of the Juppongatana by copying the man's technique and riding the shockwave from the dynamite thrown at him to deliver his imitation of Kenshin's Ryu Tsui Sen after being repeatedly stabbed and blown up.]] He then proceeds, despite being [[spoiler:nearly dead, to face down the massive giant that comes next]]. However, what is quite possibly his coolest moment comes [[spoiler:after the timeskip, where he indicates his mastery of Kamiya Kasshin Ryu by stopping a sword with two fingers]]. [[{{Badass}} Bad. Ass.]]

** While Kaoru tends to OvershadowedByAwesome, there is absolutely no denying her teaching abilities. Yahiko is the prime example, turning the former StreetUrchin into Tokyo's most feared swordsman. During his first real battle, Yahiko realizes that Kaoru's training allowed him to remain calm and see his opponent's attacks clearly despite his opponent wielding a blade, noting to thank Kaoru later. Another example is Yutaro, turning a kid who couldn't even a hold sword properly to someone who rivals Yahiko in a matter of days.
