* Tik Tok beating up the Wheelers, who were til this point the scariest things in the movie.
* Dorothy telling off Mombi and kicking her as she's dragged up the tower stairs. "I believe you will NOT!"
* Dorothy and Co. flying on the Gump away from the witch Mombi's castle.
* [[spoiler: When Dorothy returns the Scarecrow to normal and the Nome King returns from nearly human to life-like live action make-up humanoid]]. VillainousBreakdown ahoy.
* Billina [[spoiler:laying an egg in the Nome King's throat in order to kill him.]]
** [[spoiler:It was an accident.]]
* In a rare moment for the villains, the Nome King manages to defuse all the NightmareFuel around Mombi [[KneelBeforeZod by forcing her to grovel in terror before him]]: first, he commands her to kneel; then, when she gets to her knees, the King orders her to lower herself further; finally, with Mombi almost ''lying on the floor'', the King bellows "LOWER!" and [[EvilLaugh chuckles darkly]] as Mombi flinches and accidentally bangs her head on the floor.
* Later there's another one featuring those two. When Dorothy figures out the Nome King's trickery with his test, and he [[OneWingedAngel begins reverting to a barely-human pile of stone]], the Nome King looks at Mombi and snarls, ''"You let her escape"''. Mombi gets a magnificent OhCrap look on her face, and then in a moment that may cross over with NightmareFuel the Nome King roars, ''YOU '''HAD''' HER AND [[PunctuatedForEmphasis YOU! LET! HER! ESCAPE!"]]''
* As the Nome King [[spoiler: bursts into his ornament rooms after Dorothy solves his test and starts saving her friends]], he causes an earthquake. As this happens, [[spoiler: the Scarecrow]] notices an emerald-green vase ([[spoiler: which is actually a transformed person]]) on a high pedestal in danger of falling, and, without a second thought, ''does a running dive to catch it before it shatters.''
