* Killing [[spoiler:a pedophile who was about to rape Squee]] at just the right moment is arguably the closest Johnny ever gets to one of these.
* [[KickTheSonOfABitch The death of Mmy]], Nny's twisted little [[FanDumb fanboy]]. Perpetuated mainly through TranquilFury, as if a true scene of PayEvilUntoEvil wasn't awesome enough.
* A more personal one comes after Nny's starting to realize just what the Doughboys are doing him, [[spoiler: draining his mind to the point that he can't even hear Nailbunny]]. As always, they brush him off, confident that they can bring him right back into line, sidling up once he looks vulnerable, [[spoiler: so he [[ShutUpHannibal stabs Psychodoughboy in the face]] while declaring, "[[VillainousValour NO!! I CONTROL ME!! I CONTROL ME!!!]]" ]] and declares that he's taking his life back. It toes the line of HeroicWillpower! No matter what comes next, that was made of win.
* Devi kicking the shit out of Nny is pretty damn awesome--she kicks him in the head hard enough to draw blood and smashes his face into a mirror.
* As Johnny is giving his little goodbye speech to Squee, [[spoiler: Squee's dad]] enters seemingly for no other reason than to tell Squee just how much he hates him. So Johnny knocks him out. Let's face it: [[AssholeVictim He kind of deserved it]].
** Possibly better is Nny showing restraint and ''not'' [[spoiler:murdering Squee's dad while he has the chance. A kid needs a dad, after all.]]
