* In [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2012/12/29/monarch-16-11/ 16.11]], when Skitter has just been betrayed by Coil, who teleported her into a building surrounded with a small army of heavily armed mercenaries, shot her, and set the building on fire. In agony, choking on smoke, and with the only escape covered by soldiers she forces herself to think calmly and plan out a attack. She uses cockroaches to eat the wires of their lights, has her bugs form into humanoid figures to act as decoys to draw their fire, uses bugs and spider silk to pull the pins of grenades of soldiers, and engages in psychological warfare by talking through her swarm to freak out/disorient the soldiers creating complete chaos. She then attacks a solider from behind (after [[SarcasticConfession having her bugs whisper "Behind you"]], [[CryingWolf just as they have been for the past several minutes]]), forcing bugs down his throat and nose while she beats the crap of him, steals his keys, and escapes in all of the chaos. Special mention goes to the fact that Coil has to specifically order and remind the soldiers not to use grenades, implying that in another reality she caught them with her bugs and threw them back. She probably already killed Coil in another reality and she doesn't even know it!

In agony, choking on smoke, and with the only escape covered by soldiers - oh, and having been blinded by an explosion she'd been caught in that very same day - she forces herself to think calmly and plan out a attack. She uses cockroaches to eat the wires of their lights, has her bugs form into humanoid figures to act as decoys to draw their fire, uses bugs and spider silk to pull the pins of grenades of soldiers, and engages in psychological warfare by talking through her swarm to freak out/disorient the soldiers creating complete chaos.

* [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/04/02/chrysalis-20-5/ 20.5]]. Taylor is cornered in front of a cafeteria full of high school students by Defiant, Dragon, and Clockblocker. Dragon has just outed her to everyone present (including Emma). Defiant is wrecking any bugs she tries to bring into the room. She doesn't have her costume, and against Defiant, having the costume probably wouldn't even help. Then she notices that they are being extremely cautious, to the point that Defiant doesn't let Clockblocker approach just in case she has something up her sleeve. Involuntarily, despite having no idea how she will escape, [[GrinOfAudacity she smiles]] (to [[GenreSavvy Clockblocker]]'s [[ThisIsGonnaSuck dismay]]). She then [[WhatTheHellHero lays out for everyone how morally debased the Protectorate's orders to the heroes are]] and asks those who side with her to stand. ''A third of the students in the room'' -- over a hundred people -- stand up. Finally, she escapes via ''peaceable protest:'' the students walk with her en masse out of the school, preventing the heroes from stopping her exit for fear of injuring them. With, according to Defiant, the odds having been ninety-six point eight percent ''against'' her escape.

--> “Maybe not for everyone,” Imp said. “It means different things for different people. A planet they lost, an ordeal they survived, I dunno. But it’s a reminder of Taylor to me, and it’s a reminder for you, too. Every time you see it, now, it’s going to make you think of her, remind you that she did something big.”

* Taylor's evolution throughout the story. She starts out a nervous, bullied, insecure girl who wants to be a hero and slowly turns into a smart, terrifying, BadAss villain with a code of honor and a fearsome reputation.

* "Not a promise, not an oath, or a malediction or a curse," I said, sounding calm, probably inaudible in the midst of Tagg's screaming. "Inevitable. Wasn't that how she put it? I told them.
