* Kurogane magnificently one ups Lady Kaede with a thinly veiled TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
* Saburo's CallingTheOldManOut moment during the beginning. Particularly when he subverts TheSonsAndTheSpears trope to emphasize the fallibility of Hidetora's plan.
* [[spoiler: Kurogane pulls off his second SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome when he [[EvenEvilHasStandards slays Lady Kaede]] after finding out she successfully had [[ThePollyanna Lady Sué]] assassinated.]]
* Old man Hidetora, at his age, kills a soldier with a bow and arrow. As we see in the opening, he can also still perform archery on horseback.
* The attack on the Third Castle. A [[WarIsHell horrifically staged]], [[SceneryPorn horrifyingly beautiful]] sequence.
