* Michael: For about a year he [[spoiler: relives the pain of his death]] every morning, and doesn't [[DrivenToSuicide just end it]]. He gets [[spoiler: stabbed, beheaded and buried]] by Frank Collins' bikers and [[TheDeterminator gets back up for more]].
* Claire [[TakesALevelInBadass takes a major level in badass]]:
** Staking [[spoiler: Francois]] with a pencil.
** She does it again in ''Kiss of Death''.
** [[BadassBookworm Using physics to learn how to shoot a bow and arrow]] in ''Kiss Of Death''.
** Nailing [[spoiler: Morley]] through the heart with said bow and arrow.
** Working for Myrnin whilst he's still sick. More Badass than it sounds.
* [[ChessMaster Amelie's brilliant end-game]] in ''Carpe Corpus''.
* [[BigDamnHeroes Sam rescuing Claire]] in ''The Dead Girls Dance''.
* [[BigDamnHeroes Oliver, Michael and Jason]] in ''Kiss Of Death''.
* [[ActionSurvivor The residents of Blacke]] in ''Kiss Of Death''.
* Oliver, in general.
* [[CrazyAwesome Myrnin]]; complete CloudCuckooLander, brilliant scientist, [[BunnyEarsLawyer wackiest dresser EVER]].
* Myrnin [[spoiler: saved the woman he loved]] by building a [[SteamPunk computer out of glass, wood]] and [[spoiler: her brain]].
* The residents of Morganville in general, but especially in ''Lord Of Misrule'' and ''Carpe Corpus'' where they basically survive a [[spoiler: vampire turf-war.]]
* Jason Rosser in ''Kiss Of Death'' goes out in a town [[spoiler: over-run by psychotic vampires]] and steals a [[RefugeInAudacity tractor]].
* Frank's [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice]].
* Morley and Oliver banding together to [[spoiler: try and save the Blacke vampires]].
* Eve slapping [[spoiler: Amelie]] across the face when the latter [[spoiler: forbids her and Michael's wedding]] in ''Last Breath''.
* Claire slapping down [[spoiler: ''Oliver'']] for trying to assert mastery over the Morganville humans (rather than an equal partnership), complete with a mini-BreakingSpeech and threatening to punch [[spoiler: him]] with a pair of silver brass knuckles if [[spoiler: he]] ever hits her again.
** The fact that she refers to herself and the rest of the Glass House crew as [[spoiler: his]] friends also probably stung.
