* The [[spoiler: Hogwarts massacre]] derails every member of the [[spoiler:Harry Potter]] cast, but a character who is clearly [[spoiler:Severus Snape]] is completely fearless at [[FacingTheBulletsOneLiner facing his death, telling him, "Go ahead, you little shit! You always were a little shit!". Everybody else though is put through the grinder.]]
** Fans of Ron Weasley are more than a little happy, that Moore made Ron attempt to bravely talk the Antichrist out of killing him and the rest of Hogwarts, with some seeing it as a correction to how the Harry Potter movies made him into a sidekick. And of course restoring the dignity of the mocked working-class sidekick caricature is very much in keeping with Moore's anarchist anti-authoritarian sensibility.

* Mina Murray gets one in the first volume; after she slaps Dr. Jekyll to provoke his transformation, Hyde -- in full, grotesque form -- grabs her hand and looms over her in typical terrifying fashion to inform her of how little he appreciates it. Her response is to politely, calmly and unflinchingly inform ''him'' that he is hurting her hand and that she would very much appreciate it if he were to let her go. Much to everyone's surprise -- including Hyde's -- he does so.
* The [[spoiler:Air-War between the respective 'armies' of Fu Manchu and Professor Moriarty]] at the end of the first volume.

* The elderly thief who's in charge of a group of urchin pickpockets ends up rescuing the majority of Limehouse's inhabitants by leading them into the sewers during the battle between Moriarty and the Doctor. The best part? It's heavily implied that the old man is [[OliverTwist The Artful Dodger]].

* Hugo Hercules, [[ProtoSuperhero the original superhero]], is a walking moment of awesome. For starters, he punches out a T-Rex and decides to have it for lunch at Janni's advice.
