** Even a significant number among the many, ''many'' people who despise this movie admit to loving this particular battle, it is ''that'' good.

** The fact hat he overpowers Maul for a while counts as well. He's up against an opponent superior to him in both swordplay and physical power, is batteling against grief and anger that are trying to pull him to the dark side (if I remember correctly, the novelization touched upon this) and that he manages to channel all this to be stronger than before shows how much potential he still has.

Edited out repeated information.
* The duel between Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi & Qui-Gon Jinn is now and will forever remain the Crowning Moment of Lightsaber awesomeness in all of Star Wars. ** Not just the duel itself, but Duel Of The Fates as well.

* At the very end of the credits, Darth Vader can be heard breathing, foreshadowing what's to come.

* To those who were sufficiently well-read in ''Star Wars'' lore to recognize his name, The entire film was a Moment of Awesome for Palpatine: [[spoiler:manipulating events to get himself elected Chancellor, as the first step in taking over the galaxy]].

** Openly consult? No. But they clearly have a code established. When Qui-Gon is asking the "Queen" to come to Coruscant, and Panaka is asking her to remain on Naboo, Sabe says that "Either choice presents grave danger. . . to us all," while turning to Padme, who replies "We are brave, Your Highness." A seemingly innocent phrase, but clearly a verbal code to let Sabe know which choice the real Queen was making.

*** A perfect microcosm for the differences between Jedi and Sith, as well.

*** A perfect microcosm for the differences between Jedi and Sith, as well. The Jedi Master is serene and patient, the Sith just wants to kill something.

* The fact that the Gungan Army-made up of volunteers and a few veteran guards and militia men- was able to give the Trade Federation a fairly even battle. This 'band of primitives' manages to hold their own against a vastly superior force, only breaking and running when their force field is finally broken .

When the doors open to reveal Maul, Amidala and her troops look good and ready to wet themselves, until the Jedi step forward... ---> '''Qui-Gon Jinn:''' "We'll handle this." ---> '''Amidala:''' ''(who can't wait to get the hell away from Maul)'' "...we'll take the long way (around)." * When Obi Wan [[spoiler: jumped out of the shaft in the Theed palace and chopped Darth Maul in half]]. * Minor example: "I will not condone a course of action that could lead us to war." ** A bigger one later: "I will not defer. I've come to you to resolve this conflict ''now.'' I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!" * Padme and her handmaidens really can't be separated in this episode; a CMOA for one of them is a CMOA for all of them. That being said, Sabe's quick thinking and ability to keep her cool when the slightest misstep will spell all of their deaths ''and'' she's not able to openly consult with her queen? BadassNormal. * The pod-race finale. Sure, it was more the folly of Sebulba rather than direct actions on the part of Anakin, but just watching Sebulba's ginormous pod engines smash into an oncoming rock at 500 MPH as Anakin's tiny little thing cruises majestically on by was certainly a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. * Obi-Wan out of the gate vs Maul. * The duel between Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi & Qui-Gon Jinn is now and will forever remain the Crowning Moment of Lightsaber awesomeness in all of Star Wars. ** Not just the duel itself, but Duel Of The Fates as well. * Little Anakin taking down the Droid Control Ship with nobody but R2-D2 backing him up. * At the very end of the credits, Darth Vader can be heard breathing, foreshadowing what's to come.
