** That fight is technically a fight between a demon and an angel. It is exactly what you'd expect of that context.

** And in the Extended Edition, after she downs the Witch King Eowyn is lying on the ground, arm broken and visibly freaked out by what she just did. Then she spots the Orc captain coming her way, and [[{{Determinator}} starts crawling, going for a weapon.]]

** A minor one for Pippin during that sequence, leaping without hesitation from the back of Shadowfax onto a burning funeral pyre, heaving Faramir out of the flames, and putting him out before he can burn to death.

*** While Aragorn and Gimli's BackToBackBadasses moment on the causeway is buying time to shore up the main door to the keep, the manage to get some more ladders up, guided by ropes to prevent them being knocked down. Legolas snipes the support rope on one before it can be landed on the wall, and the ladder's landing looks to have squashed about forty orcs right there. Perhaps Legolas was only counting the ones he killed directly?



* ''The Two Towers'' gets one of the most awesome of all. The last charge of Helm's Deep's defenders is rushing from the gates into the Uruk-Hai army, and even though they're all being Badass, it still looks like they're lost. Then Gandalf's words get echoed, the sun rises... and Gandalf and Éomer appear on the ridge. They proceed to have the following exchange:

** Plus, from how well he was doing until Lurtz intervened, it's entirely possible he would have won, or at least killed enough of the Uruk-hai that Merry and Pippin could have gotten away. And when Lurtz stands in front of him to administer the CoupDeGrace at point-blank range, Boromir stares him down, clearly in agony and exhausted, but [[FaceDeathWithDignity not scared]], of him or of dying. Lurtz may have mortally wounded Boromir, ''but he couldn't scare him.''

* Aragorn's BigDamnHeroes moment on Weathertop. Frodo's just been stabbed, the other three Hobbits are ''clearly'' no match for even one of the five Ringwraiths that are surrounding them, and then Aragorn comes flying in from offscreen DualWielding his sword and a torch and not only holds off the five of them alone, ''he sends them running'', culminating with one jumping off the side of the mountain to get away with him. And when the last one moves to go after the Hobbits rather than fight Aragorn when he's not looking, Aragorn turns, glares at it, and the thing pauses and looks over with body language that clearly states "[[OhCrap I have made a serious mistake tonight]]" before Aragorn [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throws his torch]] ''[[TheBladeAlwaysLandsPointyEndIn into its face]]'' and sends it jumping off the mountain.

* In Balin's tomb, the Fellowship has killed everyone but the troll. Frodo goes down and the tone of the scene suddenly shifts to reflect the collective realization that they're in serious danger from that thing. If someone doesn't stop it immediately, it will kill them -- it is huge and strong. Then Legolas shifts his attention and manages to shoot it while standing on it's back. Now it is badly injured and Legolas, now on the floor in front of it, takes the time to carefully aim and shoots an arrow into it's open mouth. The arrow lodges with the tip protruding from the troll's skull and the tail from it's mouth. The troll absently waves it's hand at the arrow in it's mouth as it's brain fires its final commands, then dies.

* ''The Lord of the Rings'' was considered to be an impossible work to adapt into a Live-Action rendition. Too big, too grand in scope and size. Jackson's films not only succeeded (albeit with [[PragmaticAdaptation some liberties]]), [[GenreTurningPoint it was one of the biggest things that gave the fantasy genre a newfound respect in the public and mainstream eye]].

** During Sam's WorldOfCardboardSpeech, when the film cuts to different good-guy victories, [[EarnYourHappyEnding backing up his point]], we see the Uruk-hai army ''sprinting'' away from Helm's Deep as quickly as they possibly can.
