* In the ''gorgeous'' ColdOpen, Gabriel strides into the rain-swept European village being assaulted by a Lycan raiding party. BattleInTheRain ensues, followed by Gabriel impaling the Great Warg on a piece of broken stockade as it pounces down on him. Read, he lifts a timber log the size of a tree trunk, to hold up a half tonne mammoth predator. BadAssNormal indeed.
* Nearly every cutscene fight in the Hunting Path chase sequence serves to solidify Gabriel's BadAss credentials.
* The sheer amount of SceneryPorn present in Chapter One. From the aforementioned stormy hamlet, Horse!Pan's epic leap over the downed Aghartian bridge, the incredible atmosphere of the Dead Bog, the jaw-dropping beauty that went into creating the last bastion of the Forest spirits and the Lake of Oblivion. Safe to say, this Troper was hooked from the off-set.
* Anytime you upgrade the Combat Cross in one of Gandolfi's crypts. The fantastically designed magitek along with accompanying EtherealChoir makes it ''so'' damn awesome!
* Zobek's BigDamnHeroes introduction, catching Gabriel's thrown silver dagger in a blizzard from fifty feet up is pretty damn impressive.
* Cornell boasts of his immortality... Gabriel proceeds to beat him to near-death with his own war-hammer until the head snaps off he bashes the bastard with such force; before driving the jagged broken haft into his mouth and up into his brain. Belmont: 1 - Dark Lord: 0.
* Gabriel finishing off Carmilla.
* The final battle between Gabriel and [[spoiler:Satan]]. Good God that's easily one of the most epic boss battles ever.
** [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Topped]] with this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYcT2_FbVWw epic soundtrack]].
* Gabriel [[spoiler: snatching the Forgotten One's power for himself right in front of the demon lord and cementing his place as the Lord of Shadow, Dracula, by one-shotting the invincible, extradimensional monster.]]
--> '''The Forgotten One''': [[OhCrap I...yield to you!]] [[AintTooProudToBeg Mercy, my liege...]]''[[AintTooProudToBeg mercy!]]''
* [[spoiler:EU SUNT DRACUL!]]
