* The Huntsclan and The Dark Dragon being defeated, and both of them by Rose.
* Jake slamming The Huntsman into an elevator door in "Homecoming".
* Jake and The Huntsman's alley battle in "Breakout".
* Rotwood tricking Jake into revealing himself as a dragon at the very end of "The Rotwood Files". They really saved the best scene for last.
** And before that, the way he played Brock like a fiddle.
* Haley's CallingTheOldManOut scene in "Being Human".
-->'''Haley''': HEY! When's the last time either of you were the American Dragon? Well as the little troll girl currently filling the position, let me tell you it's stinkin' hard! I can't imagine doing it two more days let alone two more years. And to think about everything Jake's gone through; he's had to save magical creatures on a daily basis, lie to his own dad about who he is, say good-bye to the girl he loved, all to protect a mystical world that nobody knows about. He may be the American Dragon but he is also a 14 year old kid who just wanted a couple days off. If that makes him immature, fine, but self-serving? With all due respect to both of you, STEP OFF!!
* [[MuggleBestFriend Trixie]] suiting up in plate armor during "Siren Says" to face down a mind controlled [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Jake]]. Besides the fact she moves pretty fast in heavy armor (the suit alone would be about twenty kilograms (forty-four pounds), never mind the flail and round shield), she also holds her own fairly well and eventually gets the drop on [[spoiler: Vikki]].
* The magical creatures attacking the Huntsclan camp in "The Hunted", [[CurbstompBattle completely trashing the camp and no one getting hurt]]. Impressive, considering this was a RagtagBunchofMisfits.
* Rose's HeroicSacrifice that destroys the Huntsclan for good.
* Jonathan gets one in "The Long Weekend" and later in "Bite Father, Bite Son." The normally bumbling human dad fights to protect Jake from the Jersey Devil and vampires, respectively. He later helps save the day in the series finale as well.
* The battles against the Dark Dragon in "Hong Kong Knights":
** in the flashback, Lao Shi agaist the Dark Dragon one-on-one. [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome We don't see exactly how it went]], but Lao Shi not only survived against an enemy who had killed any dragon who had faced him, but ''[[DefeatingTheUndefeatable won and apparently drowned him]]'';
** in the present, Jake, with some help from friends, both magical and {{Muggles}}, waltzed in his hideout, freed Lao Shi (who had been captured), captured Chang (courtesy of ''Trixie and Spud''), and led him in the spot he needed for the ''Tooth Fairy'' to ''drop a few tons of bricks on him''. And this time, they ''killed him'' (even if Chang would later bring him BackFromTheDead).
** Also, [[TheSoCalledCoward Fu Dog being willing to fight the Dark Dragon head on]] ''both times''. [[NegatedMomentOfAwesome He got knocked out by Chang from behind both times]], but points for the balls.
