Awesome: Ice Age
Ice Age:

Ice Age: The Meltdown:
  • Scrat saves the day in this movie. Yes, Scrat.
    • Him beating up an entire school of piranhas as well.
  • Sid's tribal-dance number with the pygmy sloths.
  • "Food, Glorious Food" sung by the Vultures.
  • Diego finally overcoming his fear of water to save Sid.
  • Diego orchestrating the others to cooperate when they're stuck on some precarious rocks stacked on top of one another.
  • A veritable army of mammoths arriving at the end, after an entire film of Manny (and later Ellie) believing themselves to be the last ones, accompanied by a magnificent soundtrack.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs:
  • The T.rex pushing Rudy, the most dangerous dinosaur in the dino-world, off the edge of a cliff.
  • The whole thing about Buck, Crash and Eddie commandeering a pterodactyl to save Sid. A canyon chase, a little tail-and-berry (bow-and-arrow), some Improbable Aiming Skills, and a postcollision Mid Air Repair thrown in between.
    • And while they where busy with said awesome arobatics, Manny and Diego were having their own awesome moment fighting Guanlongs to protect Ellie.
  • Scrat and Scratte 'dancing' the Nutty Tango over the nut. It's both awesome and hilarious.
  • Buck is pretty much a walking, talking moment of awesome, as well as Crowning Moment of Funny.
  • Sid standing up to Mama Rex. Sure, it's something of a jerk move because he basically stole her eggs (albeit while thinking they'd been abandoned) and has no real custody claim to the babies, but it's still Sid refusing to back down from a T-Rex.

Ice Age: Continental Drift
  • Louis standing up to Gutt and rescuing Peaches
  • Diego roars... the Earth stops shaking.
  • Manny vs. Gutt. 'Nuff Said.
    Manny: Sometimes it pays to weigh eleven tons!
  • Precious turns out to be not-so-imaginary.
    • Sid aiming Precious's water jets to take out the pirates one by one, and his granny piloting Precious from inside her body.
  • The Herd and the hyraxes stealing Gutt's replacement ship.
  • Ellie squishing Squint into the ground.
  • Peaches using her tree-swinging to knock Gutt off the ship.
  • So Manny stole Captain Gutt's ship. What does he do? He BREAKS AN ICEBERG IN HALF to make a new one. Holy shit.
    • How do you think he made that ship in the first place? The island is covered in loose glaciers, so it makes sense he'd come there to make a new ship every time his current ship is too damaged or melted.
      • The impressive thing isn't that he MADE the ship, it's the fact that he crawled between a fissure, barely any room for him to fit, and using just his feet strength, broke the ice berg in half.
  • That Captain Gutt and his crew got to the continent and captured Manny's family well before the herd (who had at least a half hour lead on them) got there without even seeing him pass them. Even with narwhal power, it's still impressive.
