** Speaking of ''LoneWolfAndCub'', the pair actually ''appears'' in a flashback to Jack's childhood, with Oigami pausing briefly in Jack's childhood kingdom to fight three assassins on a bridge, with Daigoro striking up a brief, silent aquintance with Jack. Oigami slays all three assassins with a single blade stroke each, before retriving his son and continuing on.



* "Samurai Vs. Ninja". The ninja hides perfectly in darkness... so with the angle of the sun temporarily turning everything into either pitch-dark or blinding white light, Jack refashions his kimono into pure white ninja garb and proceeds to fight fire with fire.

* "Samurai Vs. Ninja". The ninja hides perfectly in darkness... so with the angle of the sun temporarily turning everything into either pitch-dark or blinding white light, Jack refashions his kimono into pure white ninja garb and proceeds to fight fire with fire. Problem is, the sun is setting, leaving increasingly little light for Jack to use, and more shadow for the Ninja. Jack wins in the last few moments of twilight when the Ninja gets too confident and attempts to attack Jack from behind, accidently making a slight creaking noise on a wooden beam. Jack hears it, blinds the Ninja by reflecting the sunlight on his sword, and in those few fractions of a second, throws the blade right into the Ninjas chest.



--> '''Monks''': [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Brother!]]



** The entire army of Demongos former slaves surrounding him and laying a well-deserved NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on him. The scene cuts away just as the army closes in on him.



* The episode where Jack visits The Scotsman's village and sees a traditional competition where men test their strength by throwing heavy stones. Jack is unable to so much as lift even one stone. He turns to his opponent and politely asks "How many stone do you weigh?" The competitor answers "Twenty stone." (300 lbs.) Jack declares that this man is "a mighty fellow" and shakes his hand... then promptly uses a judo throw to hurl Hamish head-first onto his own flung stone. Jack doesn't have the raw strength his opponent has, so he uses a simple martial arts technique that turns an opponent's weight against them, allowing him to toss the huge mook.

** After Jack has single-handedly reduced an entire army of ceaseless beetle drones to a scant handful, he stares the remaining forces down while soaked in oil (their blood). Then one of these unstoppable battle robots (which probably aren't even programmed to understand the concept of "retreat") hesitates... and takes a step backwards...

* The battle in "Jack and the Spartans" had the {{Determinator}} Spartans shoot missiles from the spears and robotic minotaurs that could repair themselves endlessly. The final battle of said episode had Jack throw his sword to the Spartan leader and shows that even the Spartan leader could use a katana pretty well. It ends with [[NeverFoundTheBody Jack sacrificing his life to save the Spartan Leader.]]

The King then gives Jack a second shield and they group up, with Jack blocking off the monster's attacks while the King takes arms off and the scene is so fluid, you could do nothing but gawk at how awesome it is. It ends with [[NeverFoundTheBody Jack sacrificing his life to save the Spartan Leader.]]

** The beginning has Aku in a field taunting Jack by playing keep away with a time portal. The ending sees Jack returning, only now having gained the ability to [[InASingleBound jump very very good]].
--> '''Aku:''' "Samurai fool! Your efforts are in vain again. This gateway to the past is once more beyond your rea-"
--> ([[ShutupHannibal Jack lunges 50 feet in the air at Aku]])
--> '''Aku:''' "YOU CAN FLY?!"
--> '''Jack:''' (with a badass smirk) "No. Jump Good."

** The nameless blue giant pull out a gun and begins shooting. Jack tries to throw attention off of him by throwing some ninja stars left over from a previous fight at him. The guard's response? Pull out ''another'' gun and shoot the stars out of the air, a bullet apiece, all while keeping the other gun pointed at Jack.

* Episode XXXIV, "Jack and the Swamp Creature". In a bid to find another route to the past, Jack is led by a loudmouthed hermit, who is [[PaperThinDisguise totally not]] Aku in disguise, to find the Armor of the Titan, Chronos. Jack faces numerous obstacles, but succeeds in gathering the helmet and gauntlets. The Hermit then summons Chronos to destroy Jack, berating the Samurai for [[GoodIsDumb being so stupid]]- until Chronos begins to fall apart. Jack emerges from the swamp, holding up the Eye of Chronos- the crystal from the helmet- and calls out Aku for his own complacency and laziness, telling how he saw the trap coming, before hacking at Aku with his magic sword. Aku manages to escape, but with the Eye, Jack may have the tool he needs to finish him once and for all.
--> '''Jack:''' "Run, you cowardly shadow! For you know your destruction is at hand. It is just a matter of ''time''.
* "Jack and the Lava Monster". Jack is attacked by a Norse warrior turned into the titular lava monster. At one moment Jack decides that their fight is pointless and decides to leave but the the monster '''pleads''' him to carry on as to fall in fair combat is the only way for him to rid himself of the curse and to ascend to Valhalla. Jack ''agrees''.
---> '''Monster:'''(having smacked Jack into a wall) "Rise, warrior! Rise! Honorably must I be defeated! I cannot let up!"
---> '''Jack:''' (ominously) "Do not worry. I have only begun to fight!"

** At least two earlier in that episode, when the results of the training are demonstrated: Jack removes his training weights and just... ''ascends'', and the "peaceful villager" ape tribe give their foes a humiliating defeat, warning them never to return.

** At least two earlier in that episode, when the results of the training are demonstrated: Jack removes his training weights and just... ''ascends'', ''ascends''. Afterwards, Jack bids his new friends goodbye, and leaves, only to hear the sound of trouble and running back, only to come upon the Tribe and the "peaceful villager" ape tribe give Wild Man using the training Jack gave them to finally get the better of the red gorillas who had been tormenting them for god knows how long, beating the holy hell out of them with various nonlethal traps and fighting moves. Throughout the fight, Jack never shows himself, so the confidence and skills is all their foes own. The final kicker is when the Wild Man has the last few gorillas tied to a humiliating defeat, warning tree ready to sling them never away.
--> '''Wild Man''': Hungry? Here food! *stuffs fruit in the gorillas mouths* Still hungry?! '''HERE MORE!! TAKE IT!!''' *stuffs in more* [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Never. Come. Again]] *signals

* The climax of episode XVIII, "Jack and the Ultra-robots", when Jack doesn't retreat when his powered gauntlet runs out of juice, but kneels and prays to the gods that made his sword as the last robot approaches and raises its sword. Then, the true power of Jack's legendary sword is unleashed by the gods' response of divine intervention, and Jack cuts the robot in two in a single blow. "Unbelievable."

* One from the IDW comics: when Jack's sword breaks, he is brought before Odin, Ra and Vishnu to prove that he is worthy of wielding it in the first place. He goes through hell and back to pass the gods’ tests, ready to give his life if necessary, but still wakes up empty-handed, convinced that he had failed. In this moment, Aku catches up with him, but instead of fleeing, Jack steels himself and attacks him no matter what… and that’s when he gets the sword back, good as new, reforged from his own power instead of his father's.

* The third episode of the show - also the last third of the Compilation Movie that served as the show's pilot - cuts to its mid-episode break as Jack and the sentient dogs he's trying to free finish preparations for fighting Aku's incoming robot horde. When the break is over, the show gives us the fight between Jack and the robot horde... ten minutes of awesome action.
** After Jack has single-handedly reduced an entire army of ceaseless beetle drones to a scant handful, he stares the remaining forces down while soaked in oil (their blood). Then one of these unstoppable battle robots (which probably aren't even programmed to understand the concept of "retreat") hesitates... and takes a step backwards...
