* Also, Ratigan verbal-owning Basil. Creator/VincentPrice's maliciously cheerful voice makes it all the more awesome.

* The ending of the movie: not only did they play up the Reichenbach Falls story (complete with a DisneyDeath for their Holmes stand-in), but the way the movie changes from a madcap, comedic mystery into a breathtaking chase sequence, a climactic fight inside the ClockTower of Parliament, the NightmareFuel of Ratigan's [[VillainousBreakdown evil transformation]] into a [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown crazed killer rat]], and finally Basil's [[IronicEcho clever usage]] of Big Ben striking to topple the villain to his death (all of it with a very effective musical score) is simply incredible. Most people who talk about the Disney Renaissance say it began with ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', but just as many contend that ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' should be the real beginning, or at least that the seeds of it were planted here. (The movie, while vastly entertaining, does perhaps pale a bit compared to what followed it.) This ending sequence may be one reason why it deserves such an inclusion.

** Plus, that sequence marked only the second time CGI was used by the feature animation department.[[note]]The first usage was in ''Disney/TheBlackcauldron''[[/note]]. The gears were computer animated, then traced by hand.

** FridgeLogic: the trap was stalled on the broken record, and at that point, all they had to do was work themselves free. Then came Dawson's "MomentOfAwesome", shouted so intensely that it caused the record needle to jump past the broken part, and fixing the DeathTrap. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nice Job Fixing It Hero]].

* Though Ratigan's schemes such as the Big Ben Caper were rather impressive to begin with and earned him a lot of money, he manages to outdo himself when he comes up with a scheme that will make him become the supreme ruler of all mousedom.

* Some credit to Fidget. He's a clever little bat, turning the toy store into a gauntlet as soon as he found out Basil was there, managing to escape ''and'' snatch Olivia away in the process. And though you wouldn't think it awesome, he lasted for a good while with Felicia trying to eat him before Ratigan called her off. He was probably the one who put up the biggest fight against her out of everyone she's ever eaten.
