* Despite being the villain of the piece, Chauvelin proves that he's got some courage even though he's apparently just spent the last few weeks as a drunk. After his patrol is massacred and himself captured by the very people he is hunting, his response to having a gun pointed at his head is to [[DeathSeeker press his forehead against the barrel.]]

* Percy's meeting with Chauvelin in the Chat Gris. It takes a true BadAss to make a PepperSneeze prank look so... [[ShapedLikeItself badass]].

* Sir Percy and Lady Blakeney both get one when the latter visits him in prison. When her husband passes out in her arms, Marguerite [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend shields]] and [[MamaBear defends]] him from his latest round of interrogators. When Sir Percy hears his wife being threatened, he snaps back to consciousness and attacks every guard within reach as if he hasn't been starved and sleep-deprived for 10 days. ThePowerOfLove is BadAss, baby!

* The Scarlet Pimpernel's climactic BatmanGambit, of course. No movie swashbuckling necessary!

* The Scarlet Pimpernel switching the damning letter he's been blackmailed into writing with his trademark poem and sign. This is not only awesome because he snatches Chauvelin's apparently guaranteed victory right from his grasp but because he pulls off the plan by [[HilariousInHindsight dousing the lights]] at just the right moment. So that's who {{Batman}} learned the trick from!

* At the start of the film, Percy rescues Armand from Saint Cyr's men by shoving one into the river. Then, when he has the other by swordpoint:
-->T'would seem your friend is in distress. To the rescue. ''*pushes him into the water, then picks up the man's knife.'' Yours, I believe. ''tosses it aside.''

* There are two, in rapid succession: first, when Percy recites John of Gaunt's speech from [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare's]] ''Theatre/RichardII'' ("This blesséd plot, this earth, this realm -- this England"), and second, when he comes back for his hat.

* This is followed by Marguerite completely surprising the ManipulativeBastard Chauvelin who thinks he "knows human -- female -- nature" perfectly enough to predict her every move. You can almost hear her telling him "[[AvatarTheLastAirbender I love my husband more than I fear you]]."

--> '''Percy''': My good fellow, I would never dream of depriving you of your moment of triumph. Alas, a moment was all I could spare.
