** After punishing her with an interesting variant of the HeyYouHaymaker. The silver sword finally comes out. 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. [[CowardlyLion Yeah.]]

* 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.
