* Diego TakingTheBullet to protect Manny from Soto in the final epic showdown, even though it means his death.
** As mentioned above, the epic showdown was also awesome.
* [[FauxSymbolism Manny rescuing the tiger - at the time]], [[HeroicSacrifice his enemy - from a river of lava about to consume him.]]
* The reconcilation scene between Manny and the human chief [[AllThereInTheManual Runar]] when he returns his son Roshan to him. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming Diego limping forward to reunite with Manny and Sid at the end, and his goodbye to Roshan - covering one side of his face for "Where's The Baby".]]
* Sid shoves Zeke, a saber-toothed tiger, into a tiny hole after saving the baby from him.
** What he says as he does this also counts.
--->'''Sid:''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis SURVIVAL! OF THE! FITTEST!!]] I don't think so!
* As Soto slowly makes his way toward Roshan, Manny knocks him aside to a rock wall, the impact causing sharp icicles to fall on the evil saber, impaling him and instantly killing him.
** Then scaring off the other cowardly sabers.
* "Sorry fellas! He caught a little frostbite!"
* Sid defeating the dodos single-handedly.
* Sid's ice-skating (well, until he crashes) and later his skiing and snowboarding away from the sabers.
