* The preview for the live action Netflix series sees Tick confronting a gang in a warehouse, [[NoSell no selling]] [[UnflinchingWalk every attack,]] from having a board smashed in his face, to a dozen guns firing at once. That's the setup. The awesome part is seeing Tick hamming it up, and [[BloodKnight laughing like a maniac as the whole gang opens fire.]]

* The ending of The Tick vs. The Idea Men, where the Tick ''fails'' to disarm a powerful bomb that's barely a meter away from his face. Obviously, he's unharmed, but that had to hurt a little.
* The majority of the city's heroes have intentionally stupid or useless powers (such as The Carpeted Man who gives electric shocks, and whose costume has him constantly on the verge of heatstroke), but the equally silly villains tend to make the most of their dumb gimmicks. For instance, The Breadmaster bakes pastries of mass destruction. Possibly amongst the lamest supervillain gimmicks of all time. And yet, he and Buttery Pat easily hold their own against The Tick and use quick-expanding bread as a legitimately dangerous weapon.

* A lot of the Tick's speeches, though incredibly funny, are also surprisingly insightful and some are even somewhat inspiring in a certain hammy way.

We are a public service, not glamor boys! Not captains of industry, not makers of things! [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules Keep your vulgar monies! We are a justice sandwich, no toppings necessary]]!"

** Also of note, the the whole is filmed like something out of {{LiveActionTV/Daredevil}} or Film/TheDarkKnight. Other than the Tick himself, everything is played perfectly straight.

* Issue 100; The Tick/Invincible. The two heroes team up to battle Martin of Mars (Imagine ComicBook/MartianManhunter crossed with MarvinTheMartian). It's a fun romp...until [[spoiler: Martin disintegrates Arthur.]] Understandably upset, they decide to [[spoiler: FLY TO MARS AND SHOVE THE MOON ONTO MARTIN'S BASE, PINNING HIM TO THE GROUND.]] Very possibly the coolest thing the character has ever done.

* "The Tick vs. Filth" is one big, sustained moment for Sewer Urchin. After years of taking everyone's crap and being regarded as moronic and useless, he is revealed to be just as much of a hero as everyone else in his native environment, living in a luxurious apartment with all kinds of gadgets to take down sewer dwelling monsters.

* From The Tick's defeat of Barry in the comic. Short, but very, VERY sweet.
* Also from The tick Vs. The Tick episode. Barry: "Who's the jerk who calls himself the Tick?!" The Tick: (Proudly) "I'm that jerk! Who wants to know?"
* The ending of The Tick vs. The Idea Men, where the Tick is forced to take on the explosive barely a meter away from his face. Obviously he's unharmed, but that had to hurt a little.
* The majority of the city's heroes have intentionally stupid or useless powers (such as The Carpeted Man who gives electric shocks, and whose costume has him constantly on the verge of heatstroke), but the equally silly villains tend to make the most of their dumb gimmicks. For instance, The Breadmaster...bakes, really well. Possibly amongst the lamest supervillain gimmicks of all time. And yet, he and Buttery Pat easily hold their own against The Tick and uses expanding bread as a legitimately dangerous weapon.
