* David Gilmour singing and playing the guitar solo for "Comfortably Numb" on top of the wall was a highlight of the original stage shows. The feat has been duplicated by Waters' solo ''Wall'' shows with a singer and a guitarist in his touring band. Gilmour did reprise this in his surprise 2011 appearance in Roger Waters' ''Wall'' tour at London's O2 Arena.
* Pink tearing apart the hotel. It's only hinted at in the album. In the movie on the other hand it's so epically [[CrazyAwesome crazy that you can't help but cheer him on even though what he did was wrong.]]
* The wall coming down.
** The entire trial scene before that is an excellent conclusion to the movie, with an epic music track and mesmerizing (and delightfully creepy) surreal animation with over-the-top grotesque characters.
* The [[MoodWhiplash sudden transition]] from Empty Spaces to Young Lust.
** ''Howwww... shall I fillll... the fiiiinal placessssss.... How should IIIII... compleeeeete the waaallllll-'' '''I AM JUST A NEWBOOORN! A STRANGER IN THIS TOOOOWN!'''
