Awesome: Odd Thomas
- His taking down the satanists in the first book. It's three to one; they have automatics, and he starts out with a baseball bat (and the element of surprise)... He wins.
- Both from the fourth volume: Odd singlehandedly hijacking a tugboat intended to ship nuclear devices into the United States, and... well, see Beware the Nice Ones.
- Odd's Heroic Second Wind in "Odd Apocalypse" after being on the receiving end of a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
