* Episode 15:
** Jekyll has to take on a large bandit gang because the other soldiers refuse to help him due it being a feast. By the time Zorro shows up to help he's about to be overwhelmed, but has already taken down a quarter of the bandits.
** Later Jekyll pulls two other awesome moments: when four bandits later to attack him together from different directions he takes them out with ''one slash''; and after the bandits are all dealt with he attacks Zorro and ''gives him a run for his money''. Too bad Zorro had to leave for a previous engagement...
** What was the previous engagement? The annual fencing tournament, with the prize being a kiss from the winner of the dancing contest, who this year is Lolita. And Zorro, tired from defeating half the bandits, shows up, takes on Gabriel, who had some rest after defeating the last contestant and is cheating to boot (one of the soldiers is using a mirror to blind Zorro with the sun's reflex), and wins.

* Episode 14: the Red Wolves, a large bandit gang, attack a stagecoach to kidnap a rich kid on it... And Garcia and newly-introduced character captain Jekyll ''decimate them'', and would have killed them all had the kid not wandered back to where the bandits were getting exterminated and got captured. There was a good reason [[GenreSavvy Raymund had sent them to escort the coach]]...

* Episode 13:
** Bernardo going ''Film/HomeAlone'' on two bandits and ''winning''.
*** At the end the two bandits manage to take Arianna hostage right as Bernardo was kicking them out with a frying pan. Bernardo's about to surrender... Then his dog Figaro ''sets the hostage-taker's pants on fire'' (one of the traps was heating up the main door's doorknobs with candles, and the dog is very smart), and as he screams Bernardo and Lolita takes them down.
** In the meantime Zorro was outside fighting the smarter leader of the bandits (who had sent in his dimwitted accomplices alone so they could learn stealing on their own without depending on him). We see them fighting on horseback, then we cut to Bernardo versus the idiots... And when we cut back to the fight outside, Zorro is ''[[PunchedAcrossTheRoom throwing the bandit and his horse across the clearing and through the property gate]]''.
*** Also one for the poor bandit, as ''he still manages to fight for a while after this''.

* In the final episode [[BewareTheNiceOnes we have a furious Garcia on the dishing end of a]] CurbStompBattle. The receiving end? ''Lieutenant Gabriel''. Yes, Garcia ''crushed the guy who usually gives Zorro a run for his money''.
** There's also ''how'' he did that. Upon seeing Garcia coming to arrest him for high treason or kill him in the attempt, Gabriel smirked and advanced confiding in his superior swordsmanship, only to [[OhCrap jump back in astonished fear]] when [[UnskilledButStrong Garcia slashed faster and harder than Gabriel could block]]. Garcia continued slashing with no skill but overwhelming speed and strength, forcing Gabriel to walk back in the attempt to gain enough space to regroup and bring his superior skills to bear, until he fell in the village's fountain and lost his sword, at which point Garcia repeated the order of surrender while holding him at swordpoint.

* Well before Diego's birth, Alejandro de la Vega, then still a military officer, has to defend a Francescan mission from about 150 rebelling Indios, and only has five soldiers, the Francescan brother (a former soldier) and a few Indios. Not only [[CurbStompBattle he easily wins the battle and suppresses the revolt]] [[GuileHero with superior smarts]], but he does it losing only ''one'' of his Indios (a girl who was there to reload muskets).
