* Pretty much any fight [[ShowyInvincibleHero Lucky Luke]] happens to be involved in:
** In ''Emperor Smith'', he manages to easily defeat an opponent armed with a ''cannon''.
-->'''Thug''': Don't you see I have a cannon? One move from my hand, and you are obliterated!
-->'''Luke''': [[PreAssKickingOneLiner Make the move]]
** In one book, he manages to use a very small gun to shoot inside his opponent's gun, destroying it from the inside.
** In ''Dalton City'', we are introduced at the beginning of the story to a corrupt, outlaw-populated city, where a corrupt saloon owner is ruling and sheriffs are constantly either getting killed or intimidated into leaving, with the saloon owner collecting their stars as trophies... until Luke arrives as the new Sheriff. [[OneManArmy He then puts an end to the corruption in the city in]] ''[[CurbStompBattle one night]]'', by defeating and taking the Saloon owner hostage.
** In ''Billy the Kid'', Billy tries intimidating Luke by demonstrating his speed: he lets a candy fall from his hand, then draws his gun before the candy hits the ground. Luke's answer? He lets the candy fall from his hand, draws his gun, ''put it back in its holster'', and ''then'' catches the candy before it hits the ground.
-->'''Luke''' (eating the candy): It's more hygienic that way.
** In a similar fashion in another book, a bounty hunter sent to kill Luke tries to impress him by throwing a coin and shooting right in the middle of it. Luke reacts unimpressed, causing the bounty hunter to [[SerialEscalation to do the same trick with four coins]], only for Luke to mock him about how this is a waste of money. Eventually, the bounty hunter throws a card in the air and cut it in half by shooting at it.
-->'''Bounty Hunter''': So? Was that lame or a waste of money?
-->'''Luke''': No, but you just used the last of your six bullets. You are under arrest.
** In ''Lucky Luke vs Phil Defer'', the book ends with the two titular character facing each others in a gun fight. After a while, Phil seemingly manages to make Luke run out of his six bullets, and confidently gets out of cover, ready eliminate him... only for Luke to shoot once again and defeat him. [[CrazyPrepared Turns out Luke anticipated this, and had himself built a colt capable of shooting seven times instead of six just for the occasion]].
** When a man with a derringer tried to shoot him after believing he missed (the derringer being so small BlastingItOutOfTheirHands would be hard without hitting the hand), when nothing happened he took a magnifying lens and realized Luke has hit the hammer of the gun.
* In ''Calamity Jane'', Jane takes part in an arm wrestling with the main villain's DumbMuscle, Baby Sam. As they start, it seems like she is losing, and everybody places his bet on Baby Sam. Then, at the ''very'' second everybody has placed his bet, Jane reveals [[IAmNotLeftHanded she wasn't using her full strength]], and easily wins in one move of her wrist.
** Earlier in the book, Calamity Jane pulls a BigDamnHeroes on ''[[BadassInDistress Luke]]'', of all people.
* At the end ''Go West!'', Joe finally has Luke at his mercy, forcing him to drop his gun by holding a hostage. Just as he's about to kill him, [[ChekovsGun a bullet that had seemingly missed its mark during the shootout in the mineshaft ricocheted out]] and ''entered the barrel of Joe's gun, dismantling the gun from the inside''. This pushes Joe into complete insanity.
--> '''Luke''': My name is Luke, Joe. ''Lucky'' Luke.
