* When the [[BigBad Nightmare Knight]] comes face to face with Cucumber and Nautilus, a bit of verbal back and forth ensues and results in Nautilus declaring that, if they [[ThePowerofFriendship work together]], they will have the power to defeat him for good. The Nightmare Knight responds to this [[spoiler:by pulling out a '''miniature sun''' and holding it like it's just one of his '''weaker''' attacks]].
-->'''Nightmare Knight:''' [[spoiler: Amusing. In that case, show me this 'power' of yours.]]
* [[http://cucumber.gigidigi.com/cq/page-438/ Nautilus absolutely chewing out Legato]] and telling him exactly how he pathetic he is.
* [=Noisemaster=]. Not only is the man ObfuscatingStupidity around the Nightmare Knight, but he takes the opportunity to trick Almond into triggering [=Mutemaster=] into action and [[spoiler: get Princess Piano to give his [=Noiseblaster=] a full charge after having her witness Nautilus (almost) get killed.]] When he says that he doesn't want to play around anymore, he ''means'' it.
* For that matter, [=Rosemaster's=] sheer determination to win at least ''once''. Just ''look'' at her eyes when she states her goal.
* Commander Caboodle saves Nautilus with a clever fake-out.
