** Everyone has their own WeaponOfChoice: Thor has his famous [[DropTheHammer hammer]], Loki has [[KnifeNut daggers]], Sif has a [[BladeOnAStick bladed]] [[SimpleStaff staff]], Fandral has a [[RoyalRapier rapier]], Hogun has a [[EpicFlail spiked mace]] and Volstagg has an [[AndaxeToGrind axe]].

* Lots of them, but Thor hitting the enormous frost monster in the mouth and [[BoomHeadshot exiting through its skull]] is a moment that deserves a special mention.
* Heimdall breaking free from the ice.
** Heimdall breaking through the ice, and killing the two frost giants ready and waiting for him to break through the ice in half a second flat, while he has hypothermia that can only be dreamt about.
** More of a passive crowning moment of awesome than an action of combat, Heimdall telling Thor's friends that he cannot open the Bridge for them... [[SteppingOutForAQuickCupOfCoffee He then turns away and walks off]] [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight with his sword still in the pedestal for them to use.]]
** Hell, just Heimdall, ''period''. [[Creator/BobChipman Moviebob]] puts it nicely:
-->'''Moviebob:''' And to everyone who [[WTHCastingAgency pitched a fit]] about [[RaceLift Idris Elba playing Heimdall]] every scene he's in may as well be subtitled '''[[AbilityOverAppearance "THAT'S WHY!"]]'''

* The fight sequence on Jotunheim:
** Everyone has their own WeaponOfChoice: Thor has his famous [[DropTheHammer hammer]], Loki has [[KnifeNut daggers]], Sif has a [[BladeOnAStick bladed]] [[SimpleStaff staff]], Fandral has a [[RoyalRapier rapier]], Hogun has a [[EpicFlail spiked mace]] and Volstagg has an [[AndaxeToGrind axe]].
** Loki stands between a Frost Giant and a long fall. Loki has a scared look on his face as the giant charges towards him... only to pass right through him and fall to his death. Loki pokes his head out from behind a pillar, and turns off his illusion with a smirk.
** Thor summoning a big lightning bolt and bringing it down on Jotunheim's ground, shattering it.
** Thor hitting the enormous frost monster in the mouth and [[BoomHeadshot exiting through its skull]] is a moment that deserves a special mention.
** Odin arriving on his eight-legged horse Sleipnir in the last nick of time to safe his sons and their friends. Despite everything, the Jotuns have so much respect of him and Asgard that they immediately stop attacking when they see the Bifrost opening.
* Tearjerker it may have been, but Thor's banishment from Asgard was one of the most badass scenes in the entire first half. The fact that Thor, whose badass cred we've just witnessed firsthand, is utterly helpless before Anthony Hopkins as Odin lets you know just why we call him "Allfather."
* Thor rampaging his way through the S.H.I.E.L.D. crash site to get to Mjölnir is awesome in and of itself. He goes through the fence, beats up some guys and steals a jacket. Then he goes inside and just beats the crap out of anyone who gets in his way and makes it to Mjölnir. Okay, one guy just beat the ever-loving crap out of a full squad of S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives. That's awesome, but he did it ''without killing'' '''''anyone'''''. Thor is a BloodKnight and a BoisterousBruiser, but he's still TheHero. He just has a lesson to learn.
** Some recognition to the large S.H.I.E.L.D. agent giving the millenia-old alien warrior prince his first real fight. During a cloudburst. In the ''mud''.
* Volstagg gets one in a deleted scene. After scenting food from at least a block away, he tracks it to two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who are spying on Thor and the others, sneaks up behind them, knocks them out and steals the food in question as he goes. Pretty stealthy for a guy his size.
* Sif and the Destroyer have a combined one. First, Sif jumps down and impales the Destroyer through its open face plate just as it's about to fry Volstagg. This is cool enough... but then, the Destroyer ''reverses its entire body'' so that it can pull itself up off the spear and take on Sif immediately. It literally rotates around the various grooves on its body.
** Doubles as a CMOA for the digital artists working on that scene. Figuring out that kind of puzzle-box animation, and making it look badass, couldn't have been easy.

* Nothing about Thor's banishment from Asgard? Tearjerker it may have been, but this troper thought it was one of the most badass scenes in the entire first half!

** Hell, what makes it even more awesome is that it is an enormous frost monster.
