* Horace challenging [[BigBad Morgarath]] in the end of The Burning Bridge. He didn't really think it through, but by god, he looked BADASS.
* Any time any/all of the main characters are put in charge of a force larger than 2 other people.
** Will commanding the archers at the end of book 4, The Battle for Skandia, who happen to have previously been Skandian slaves. [[spoiler:By the time the Temujai attack (which is about 2 weeks from when Will is given the archers) they are shooting at the full strength of a battalion of Araluen archers.]]
** Hell, the ''entire'' battle for Skandia may be this. The [[spoiler: Temujai]] expect to fight a horde of barbarians who they can [[CurbStompBattle curbstomp into the dust]] in a couple of hours. What they get in return is [[spoiler: a well prepared and disciplined fighting force and a battalion of archers, who they rarely ever have to fight.]] It's mentioned the [[spoiler: Temujai]] are the largest threat to the Western World, and they got beaten by [[UnderdogsNeverLose a bunch of barbarians.]]
* [[spoiler: Oberjarl Ragnak's death. [[TheBerserker He dies taking out nearly a dozen more Temujai at once, and leaves all but two of them dead.]]]]
