** Especially awesome because, as a couple of people note, Vorbis' big evil superpower is that he turns everyone he meets into another cruel, greedy copy of himself. Everyone, apparently, but [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Brutha]]. And Brutha notes that even ''he'' was changed by his encounter with Vorbis; indirectly, Vorbis had changed him from a simple novice to [[spoiler:a Prophet and great leader]]. As the book says, "...he always changed them. That was his triumph."

** This was a CallBack to the desert, when Om defended Brutha against the various unworshipped small gods there. (''"Mine."'') Granted, ''that'' may have been more survival than anything (as he knew [[spoiler:Vorbis, who was also there,]] would be a poor replacement), but it was still a setup for later events.

--> Om: "What does it matter [whether or not we kill Vorbis]? In a hundred years, we'll all be dead."
--> Brutha: "Yes. But here (picks up bowl) and now (throws bowl), we are ALIVE! (CRASH)"

* Maybe you have to be religious for this one, but it's pretty powerful when Brutha finally finds a good comeback for Om's nihilistic mantra. What the hell is religion about if it isn't about that?

** Just to put things in context, this represents Lu-Tze's most blatant break of the rule of non-intervention, all done in the name of cheering someone up. It involves travelling several miles moments after sabotaging the super-powered evil tank and is evidence that he thought that it was just as important.

** Just to put things in context, this simple act involves travelling several miles at considerable speed moments after sabotaging the super-powered evil tank just to be able to cheer the hero. It also represents Lu-Tze's most blatant break of the rule of non-intervention, all done in the name of cheering someone up. It involves travelling several miles moments after sabotaging the super-powered evil tank and is evidence that he thought that it was just going as important.far as (kind of) revealing his identity.

* Lu-Tze cheering up Brutha in the Citadel Gardens when he could no longer hear his God.
** Just to put things in context: This is easily overlooked but it a Lu-Tze's most blatant break of the rule of non-intervention was done in order to cheer up Brutha when he was in the depths of despair. The fact that Lu-Tze even did the pep-talk BEFORE sabotaging the evil superpowered tank which was miles away is evidence that he thought that cheering up the hero was more important.

* Brutha, separated from his tiny, self-centered tortoise god and trapped in the Citadel, storms down to its enormous, immovable Great Gates and starts shouting, "I carried you in the desert! I believed all my life! Just give me this one thing! Give me a sign!" And the Great Gates, thanks to an unrelated (right?) subplot coming to its head at exactly the right moment, swing open.
* ''"I. He is Mine."'' Gave me some serious goosebumps.
* Om struggling his way across the land to make it to Brutha before he is killed.

* It is a small and easily overlooked episode but Lu Tze broke his "rule" of non-intervention by directly talking and (comically trying) to cheer up Brutha when he was on the edge of despair in the vegetable garden. It may not seem much but consider the fact that Lu Tze never did anything without a reason and suddenly, this small insignificant action is the real-life version of Mysterious Mentor Shows Up In The Hero's Darkest Hour And Gives Him A Revelation.
