Awesome / Pocahontas

  • John Smith diving off the ship during a storm to save Thomas.
    • And because that was so easy, he rescues Thomas' hat too. Like a boss.
  • The scene where John gets his first sight of Pocahontas in the mist from the waterfall.
  • Thomas taking control of the English soldiers at the end.
    Thomas: Put him in chains!
    Ratcliffe: I'll see you all hang for this!
    Thomas: And gag him as well.
  • Thomas just standing up and defying Ratcliffe with one word: "No."
  • Also the scene where Pocahontas is running to stop the execution...beginning from the compass needle spinning faster and faster until it points down the path and ending at the word "NO!"
  • The song "Savages" at the climax.
    Grandmother Willow: You know your path, child...Now follow it!
  • "Savages", "Just Around the Riverbend", "Colors of the Wind"...
  • Pocahontas standing up to her father.
    Chief Powhatan: Daughter, stand back!
    Pocahontas: I won't! I love him, Father! Look around you. This is where the path of hatred has brought us.
  • The ending. Like it or not, it made for a beautiful scene that resembled Pocahontas' introductory scene.
    • It also included John Smith finally giving in and waving "Ana" back at Pocahontas. At first he had said he liked "Hello" better.
  • What about our introduction to the character of Pocahontas? She dives down a waterfall cliff and is in the air for somewhere around ten seconds, which means her speed as she hit the water would be almost 200 mph! Even if we assume that the switch to view her friend in the canoe rewound time to just before her jump and we pick up right afterword, which isn't unrealistic given her position when the "camera" switches back, Pocahontas was falling for over 6 seconds, still, which means her fall was from about 650 feet high and around 140 mph at impact. This is still an insane distance to fall and expect to survive, let alone avoid serious injury, even when impacting water. Pocahontas isn't just awesome, she's downright insane! However, she's apparently tough as nails, since not only is she alive and conscious after impact, she's in a playful mood!
