** An explanation: [[spoiler:Sam Vimes has been fighting the unstoppable influence of the Summoning Dark, a 10,000 year old quasi-demonic ''thing'' of pure vengeance, for the entire book. It's a substition that normally drives a mind into blind, bloody rage against the enemies of whoever invoked it, and he's been holding it at bay with his belief in law and justice. What finally motivates him to give in is that it's six o'clock, and at six o'clock every day he's at home reading ''Where's My Cow'' to his son. He then turns into a [[UnstoppableRage striding, screaming, vengeful maniac]] who fights his way alone through a crowd of heavily armed dwarfs[[note]]Heavily armed even for dwarfs. Flamethrowers and everything.[[/note]], until he reaches the Summoning Dark's true targets and... stops. Because Sam Vimes doesn't kill helpless cowering old men.]]

* During the same attack, Sybil and her dragons get their CMOA. The [[spoiler:dwarfs]] attack her with a flamethrower, but since she's wearing an outfit designed to protect her from her dragons (who have a habit of belching flame and exploding with little provocation), she shrugs the attack off. The dragons, however, see the flamethrower as a challenge... and twenty-six of them simultaneously incinerate the poor bugger (leaving a white-hot glowing pair of iron boots and a scorch mark in the shape of the attacker), with Sybil simply saying, "Good boys."

* A.E. Pessimal, a bureaucrat assigned to the Ankh-Morpork City Watch by Vetinari, attacked a rampaging, crazed troll ''with his teeth'', an act of courage so outrageous and unexpected, the Patrician literally didn't believe it when he was told.

** Detritus' story in general: he went from less-than-a-nobody to a respected sergent and [[spoiler:key element of the Troll/Dwarf truce]], and from a very secondary character to the fourth main protagonist of the City Watch arc (the three others being, of course, Vimes, Carrot and Angua).

** This example, since it is not only a crowning moment of awesome, but also of [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments funny]] and [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]], is probably a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for Terry Pratchett, as well.
