* When Hrathen confronts the real villain of the story.
---> '''Hrathen:''' I thought you understood by now, [[spoiler:Dilaf]]. ''Nothing'' [[MagnificentBastard I]] do is ''just'' for show.
** To elaborate. It was tradition for priests to always appear to be wearing heavy armor at all times. For obvious reasons, most priests wore fake armor. [[spoiler:Dilaf]] had Hrathen attacked. However, Hrathen actually DID wear his heavy armor at all times and was thus combat ready and protected from the attack.
* The closing portion of the book. [[spoiler:The fatal flaw that had corrupted Elantris is suddenly corrected, and all the withered zombie like creatures become [[PhysicalGod glowing embodiments of magical might]], walk out of a raging inferno, and start kicking ass.]]
* Kiin breaking out [[spoiler:his old axe and showing why it's not a good idea to screw with someone who went by the name "Crushedthroat."]]
