* At the height of his power, [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths the Anti-Monitor]] is about to [[GotTheWholeWorldInMyHand grab (literally) the entire DCU in the palm of his hand]], getting the ultimate MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight, when suddenly...
-->'''Anti-Monitor''': ''"I feel a force resisting me! WhoDares"''
-->'''Spectre''': ''[[BigDamnHeroes "I dare, cruel one! And I will stop you!"]]''
** The Spectre then ''drags'' the Anti-Monitor's hand back, preventing him from changing history and closing his sole window of opportunity, buying valuable time for the heroes.
* His skill and creativity in killing without killing. NightmareFuel? Sure. Awesome? Works just as well!
* Then there's the time he [[CurbStompBattle one-shotted]] ''ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}''.
* In DC Comics Presents issue #29, Silver Age Superman is trying to find ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'', who has just gone missing. He flies so fast than he ''breaks'' the bounds of ''reality'' and is stopped by ''ComicBook/TheSpectre''. Superman tries to fight him but The Spectre completely {{No Sell}}s his power -Silver Age Superman's power!- before teaching Superman a lesson about power and responsibility and help him find Kara. Oh, and ''{{God}}'', -yes, God!- [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-gFnnrVDIjZY/Tp2cgi8yrHI/AAAAAAAAND8/BEZ235eKhcE/s1600/dccp+29-09.jpg talks to Superman]] and calls him "a good and faithful son".
