* The Thief stealing back the three golden balls as [[spoiler: the One-Eye's death machine collapses around, over and behind him]] ''and'' escaping without so much as a ''scratch''.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The recobbled cut features truly inspired use of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade" to fill in silent sections of the original film.
** The whole recobbled edition in general, removing the pop-culture references, disconnected dialogue and most of the OffModel animation in order to present it as the original animated epic it was supposed to be.
* Tack [[spoiler: takes a level or two in Badassery and destroys the whole of One Eye's death machine with one single well-aimed nail]].
* The Escher inspired chase [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daBq278GJlc scene.]]
* The dying messenger, who, after being shot with numerous arrows and impaled with a flagpole, crawls across the corpse-strewn battlefield, drags himself onto his horse, and rides day and night back to the palace so he can warn them of the oncoming war.
* AwesomeAnimation / VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Williams' original scenes are amazingly well animated. Not only is it technically excellent, but the characters also often move and act in very inventive ways: Of particular note is Zigzag's playing cards scene (animated by Williams himself), which ''has'' to be viewed frame-by-frame to catch all the subtleties. In fact, the art was so good that some parts of it, especially the War Machine, looked like animated CGI
** For the latter portion, the original cut was supposed to be the greatest animation epic of all time, so therefore, Williams put in almost half a century's work into each frame, resulting in animation that mirrored CGI because of its sheer perfection, especially the War Machine.
