* Yes, the TV Show version may be packed with NarmCharm, but it still has plenty of awesome moments and Michał Żebrowski really tries his hardest to portray the itinerant monster slayer.
** The fact that Geralt pretty much fights a renegade Witcher in nearly every other episode. And ''wipes the floor'' with them, as his mutations are more advanced. And his [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower abilities]] more honed.
** One for whenever Geralt preaches tolerance for sentient monsters that co-exist without directly harming humans.
* At the beginning of episode one, the boy who'd become the White Wolf pulls the [[CoolOldGuy Elderly Witcher's]] dagger away from his father's throat and decides to leave voluntarily.
** The random Witcher who's attacked by the Scoi'atel. He becomes a HumanPincushion yet still takes down two of the elven archers. And only succumbs when he's riddled with five shafts sticking out of his torso. Later, it's revealed that he was OnlyMostlyDead and manages to ride all the way back to Kaer Morhen and present the guerrillas' heads!
** Kid!Gwynbleidd surviving the [[FeelNoPain Trial of Pain]], [[BioAugmentation Trial of Grasses]], [[CursedWithAwesome Trial of Dreams]] and the [[TookAlevelInBadass Trial of Mountains]].
* Episode two is filled with so many [[EstablishingCharacterMoment establishing character moments]] for adult Geralt's badassitude, including:
** Ozbert, a [[DrillSergeantNasty bullying master Witcher]], canes his student, Gascaden, over the head until he's bleeding and concussed; for not being able to throw him off his horse during training. Geralt [[CherryTapping avoids his blows]] until the ''master'' is suitably pissed off.
-->'''Ozbert:''' Stay still, coward!
-->'''Geralt:''' ''(slow-motion judo flips him out of the saddle)''
** Cold-cocking Clovis in the face after he makes lewd gestures about the sisters of another Witcher school.
** Hell. He's also the ''only'' Witcher wily enough, [[CanonDefilement (out of this quasi-Jedi, equal sex-opportunity, corrupt elements iteration of the order)]], to be a CombatPragmatist, utilizing mis-direction, tactical withdrawals, grapples and throws and mixing them into his sword-play.
-->'''Adela:''' Fight the normal way.
-->'''Geralt:''' ''(grinning)'' What does it mean, 'normal'?
** Our protagonist being forced to stand on a stump known as 'the square' for two days and nights as punishment for his unorthodox ways against the Witcher Code. Out of the three students forced to endure this torture; Geralt is the only one who doesn't collapse from muscle spasms. Then he defeats a vengeful and jealous Novitiate Witcher a mere hour later by making his rush attack carry him over the edge of a cliff!
** Geralt defeating Witcher Thornwald in mortal combat, despite being weighed down by bulky armour and facing down a ''very'' experienced member of the Wolf School, who had not only been on the path long before his own metamorphosis, but who had also made his career by being the only Witcher to successfully fight in full plate as his signature style.
* By episode three: the White-haired Wanderer shows us the full extent of his enhanced senses by using powdered elixir to increase the sensitivity of his hearing and sight to near supernatural levels and locate patrols over a mile away. Thereby being able to avoid most of Falwick's men-at-arms while trying to get [[GirlOfTheWeek Moren]] back to her home, in Brokilon.
* Halfway through episode four, (though it's followed by the first truly bizzare moment in the series; where our protagonist does ''something'' to Yarpen with his sword.) Geralt trying but failing to rescue a dangling Yennefer, and then Dandelion saving the pair of them from falling down the ravine by being the only one to lower them a rope.
* Some [[TeensAreMonsters human youths]] mock Geralt's profession and call him a changeling at the beginning of episode five. Geralt shuts them down pretty damn fast.
** This exchange.
-->'''Herbolth:''' You're drunk, Witcher. Do you ''want'' trouble? Watch yourself, or you'll end up in the dungeon. Or on the end of a rope.
-->'''Geralt:''' ''You''. Are threatening me? ''(takes steel sword off the table and leans it up casually)'' ''Try'' to take me.
-->'''Herbolth:''' ...
-->'''Geralt:''' See? You've got your power, your hired dogs, and your pants full of shit.
-->'''Herbolth:''' One hundred silver marks. Take them and leave Aedd Gynvael. I won't let Istredd risk his life for such a stupid reason, for some wh -
-->'''Geralt:''' Get your eyesore of a face away from me, Herbolth. [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules And the money you can shove up your ass.]] Go. Away. ''Now.''
-->'''Herbolth:''' Alright then, I wanted to go easy and fair with you. A Witcher entangled in a woman's skirt? I thought you were the people's defender? Where's your honour? Your mission? Fine. Fight for this wench who will put out for anyone -
-->'''Geralt:''' ''(plants dagger between Herbolth's fingertips laying on the table in the blink of an eye)'' One more word... And this inn will ''burn'' with blood...
** Geralt killing the renegade Witcher Maranga like the [[SingleStrokeBattle little bitch]] he is.
* If you have to watch one episode in the series, this is it. Episode eight. Good ''God'', episode eight. 'The Crossroads', or as I like to call it. 'Geralt makes everyone his bitch.'
** When three vagabonds try and rob Geralt while at a bar in Vizima, the Witcher slaughters them to the last then uses the Axii sign, for the first time seen, on the guards that try to arrest him, making them take him to Velerad, the King's burgomeister; so he can inquire into a job that will become one of his most famous.
** Geralt's promise to Foltest that he will do everything within his power to lift Adda's curse.
** Ostrit having the brass balls to try and pay the Witcher off, and Geralt standing stock still, [[InTheHood idly resting on the pommel of his silver sword]] [[BlackCloak like a boss.]]
-->'''Ostrit:''' Look, I don't want you to kill her, Master Witcher. Here, a thousand Orens; now you're a wealthy man without the risk.
-->'''Geralt:''' I've taken the job and I will do it. I have nothing to do with your plots.
-->'''Ostrit:''' What are you talking about? ''(throws full coin pouch at his feet)'' Take it and get lost you tramp!
-->'''Geralt:''' It's clear you want to remove Foltest. That will go much easier for you and your co-conspirators if his only daughter is still hunting and eating people. You should go now, my Lord. It's getting dark.
-->'''Ostrit:''' Keep away! I have a turtle stone! I will kill you, Wizard! ''(draws sword and flails at Geralt)'' Your tricks won't do any good!
-->'''Geralt:''' ''([[NonchalantDodge leans aside of his swipe]] and [[TapOnTheHead raps him with the flat of his blade]])''
-->'''Ostrit:''' ''(collapses like a sack of shit)''
** Lifting the curse. The White Wolf scares the monster out of the child, with a combination of his sorcery and fearsome presence and when she, (partially cured), digs her clawed hand into his carotid, Geralt manages to subdue her with the mere touch of his silver sword, then staunch his bleeding before he passes out from the nerve damage.
* In episode nine: Geralt is riding down a road, when he's suddenly surrounded and stopped by lancers, Knights of the Order of the White Rose, and the captain of Hereward's guards, a dwarf named Dennis Cranmer along with his arch-nemesis, Count Falwick. Geralt is forced to accept the challenge of an arrogant young knight, Tailles, who you meet at the beginning of the second game; or face the gallows. [[DramaPreservingHandicap The rules of the duel further state that Geralt must be blindfolded and that if he even touches Tailles with his sword, the Witcher will be made to suffer a slow death.]] Geralt easily evades the inept slashing of the adolescent douche and the duel promptly ends when their blades meet and Geralt's parry causes Tailles' sword to bounce back and slash his own face. Falwick, seeing that the boy is injured, demands that the footmen seize Geralt, but Cranmer stops him stating that the rules of the duel were fulfilled "to the letter", and that [[MagnificentBastard Geralt is free to go.]]
* Geralt making a mockery of both Fifteen and Cykada, in episode ten, when the mercenaries both try to bully the monster slayer at separate intervals.
** Ciri telling Falwick off and ordering him to leave her sight when he lies about Geralt abandoning her. He does!
** Geralt trying to turn Renfri away from her hate-fueled crusade.
-->'''Geralt:''' There is no lesser evil, Renfri. Evil is evil and always will be. I won't kill Stregobor, and nor will you. I won't allow any carnage here. Give it up. All of it. Then you'll prove for yourself that you can cut this chain of fate. That you can forgive. You can become someone else.
* During the finale of episode ten: Renfri poisons Geralt while seducing him and leaves him for dead. But lo! We start up episode eleven revealing that that old Witcher metabolism has allowed our hero to crawl to his herbal bag and swig some Golden Oriole, burning out the arsenic the blood-crazed princess slips into his beer. He then soups himself up with so many potions and poultices that his pupils dilate to [[BlackEyesOfCrazy block out his golden iris'.]] Sufficiently buffed, Geralt goes to Blaviken's market square and ''annihilates'' Renfri's merry band of rapers and brigands.
** The half-elf, Civril, fires a crossbow bolt at the Witcher. Geralt doesn't just intercept the quarrel, but ''bats it aside'' fast enough that it still buzzes into a wood support!
** Special mention for Geralt's scary SlowWalk and his StealthHiBye in plain sight.
** Renfri DualWielding her scimitar and barbed cape against the Witcher and being the only human foe in the series to land [[JustAFleshWound a blow]] on him before her own demise.
* In the penultimate episode of the series, Geralt massacres his way through Falwick's compound in his search for Ciri, pulling off an awesome riding dismount, three ranged kills, along with [[CallBack employing several feints he used all the way back in episode two]], a healthy dose of the Naev'de Feaine Glaeddyv sword style while fighting multiple opponents simultaneously and to top it all off; Geralt does all this ''[[PapaWolf without]]'' the aid of any reflex or strength enhancing potions and manages to deflect two arrows, one after the other before running the archers down and stabbing Ciri's jailer through a door.
** Waiting for Falwick and his Nilfgaardian retinue to arrive so he can finally do away with the man he promised to kill all those years ago, Geralt [[ISurrenderSuckers lets himself be taken prisoner]], endures the Count's [[WhipItgood torture]] with [[FeelNoPain taut stoicism]], then turns his allies against him by using Ciri's absence as a construed betrayal on Falwick's part so that Baron Gausteberg, the Imperial Captain present, orders a [[TrialByCombat judiciary duel]] to determine who the liar is... Only Falwick sics his men on the witcher like the pussy he is.
** Geralt punching out Tailles once again and killing three more Knights of the White Rose while initially unarmed.
-->'''Geralt:''' Are you not going to blind-fold me this time?
-->'''Black One:''' ''(offers sword)''
-->'''Geralt:''' No. [[PreAssKickingOneLiner I'll take one from them.]]
** After Geralt has just proved to everyone present what a loathsome coward he is, Falwick draws his sword on Geralt and before it has even cleared his scabbard, [[SuperReflexes Geralt opens his throat from ear to ear]].
* Episode thirteen, Dandelion not only pushed a despairing Geralt into escaping the Nilfgaardians who were about to execute them by impaling but after they escape through a monster-guarded cave, he goes back and manages to steal some treasure from the same draconid or lesser vampire by ''throwing silver coins at it''!

But at this point, all Geralt has to do is an IntimidationDemonstration coupled with a bit of a CloseCallhaircut that exemplifies his masterful control over blades, coupled with a brief and intense face-to-face moment where he reflects her primal aggression right back at her, and the traumatized girl of a monster runs for the hills.

* In '' 'The Edge of the World' '' a group of elves have Geralt and Dandelion at their mercy. Geralt negotiates a deal for his friend to go free, at which point Dandelion, resident LovableCoward, tells him exactly where to stick it and demands that if they touch Geralt then they damn well better kill him too, or he'll use his influence to set the entire world on elves everywhere until every last one is dead and their precious mountains ground to rubble.

* The pre-rendered introduction cinematic before reaching the main menu is a retelling of ''Wiedźmin'', published way back in 1991, and it's an excellent, action-packed sequence, staying almost entirely true to the original story, down to each individual blow. A breakdown on this fantastic intro to this mythos.

* The sadly never realised and heavily improved version of the first Witcher, Rise of the White Wolf, never made it to the Xbox 360, [=PS3=] or the PC but we do have this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSbfrDziiao ridiculously awesome pre-rendered cinematic]] of Geralt shadow training at his campfire in the dead of night. The animation or mo-cap, whichever it is, is ''slick as hell''.

* No more running. Ciri stands firm against MasterSwordsman Leo Bonhart and uses her pendulum balance beam training to score blows against a vastly more experienced fencer which causes him to fall from the rafters and cripple himself. Even better, not only does this ImplacableMan beg for clemency from the girl he's psychologically and physically tortured but when Ciri scorns him a CoupDeGrace takes his witcher medallion trophies and leaves him to die, he tries a last ditch attack which ends in a textbook BackstabBackfire.
