Awesome / Queen Of Shadows

  • Jade managing to trick all the generals into thinking that she's really the Queen.
  • The Establishing Character Moments of several of Rokutaro's Inner Circle:
    • Yasashi putting a bunch of bullying samurai in their place.
    • Rosuto killing most of a group of bandits from a distance.
    • Nonki hypnotizing a Jerkass noble and his entire entourage and then robbing them blind.
    • Kyouaku taking a Shadowkhan cannon ship for himself and killing the Squid Khan captain via Offhand Backhand. With a sword.
  • Jade, with no choice but to declare a war plan, devises one that will minimize human casualties and hopefully give the heroes of the time a chance to fight back.
  • Nonki effortlessly taking control of Himitsu's flying roc feather, something the wizard says is supposed to be impossible. And later using his illusions to distract Hiruzen so they can escape.
  • Hiruzen, Kamisori, and Sanshobo showing up to save Jade from being killed by Yasashi.
    • Hiruzen vs. Yasashi and Himitsu. Working together, they are just barely able to hold him off until Nonki's illusions save them.
  • Ikazuki vs. Toguro, who has been single-handedly hindering the Shadowkhan advance.
