* The light bomb. At the very beginning of the movie, just before Van Helsing sets out for Transylvania, Carl tells him he's just finished it and what it does--it creates a blast of light equal to the intensity of the Sun itself--but doesn't know what they can really ''use'' it for. At the end of the second act, as literally ''hundreds'' of vampires are closing in on them at Dracula's summer home in Bucharest, they find out ''exactly'' what they can use it for. Cue dropping the bomb on the ground, which creates enough light to clearly shine out of ''every opening in the entire building'', and there's nothing left of the other vampires but bones.

** He got a ''stealth'' [=MoA=] in the original film, by shoving the Bucharest party's fire-eater from behind, just enough that the unsuspecting performer set Dracula on fire. And did so discretely enough that Dracula apparently doesn't realize it's ''Carl's'' doing, but throws the fire-eater clear across the room for being so clumsy.

* Despite being a "gypsy" princess who has spent most of the movie needing to be saved by Van Helsing, when she's been kidnapped by the last of Dracula's brides and is about to be sucked, Kate Beckinsale redeems herself with this exchange:

'''Anna Valerious:''' I think if you're going to kill somebody, kill them! Don't stand around talking about it!
** Even if that was borrowed from ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''.
* The main Van Helsing theme, first heard on the streets of Paris towards the beginning of the film. Amazing.
** Try the entire friggin' movie. The music is some of the best work Creator/AlanSilvestri has produced (he worked with Stephen Sommers before on ''Film/TheMummyReturns'' and again on ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''. [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Music of the awesome and crowned variety in all three cases]]).
** How badass was the soundtrack? So badass that Nicepeter and Epiclloyd used it on the Hitler-Vader WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory rematch.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: To this troper at least, particularly during the climatic werewolf vs vampire battle.
** From the same scene, the moment where [[spoiler:Werewolf!Van Helsing sharpens his claws on a metal surface and shows them to Dracula with a glare that means business.]]

* In the animated prequel, Carl gets an awesome moment when he throws his holy water gun into a pit of hellfire, cleansing it and destroying the undead threatening them.

* A flying vampire bride vs Van Helsing armed with an AutomaticCrossbow. Once it's been dipped in holy water, the fight becomes a whole lot shorter and one-sided.

** Try the entire friggin' movie. The music is some of the best work AlanSilvestri has produced (he worked with Stephen Sommers before on ''Film/TheMummyReturns'' and again on ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''. [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Music of the awesome and crowned variety in all three cases]]).
