Tik Tok beating up the Wheelers, who were til this point the scariest things in the movie.
Dorothy telling off Mombi and kicking her as she's dragged up the tower stairs. "I believe you will NOT!"
Dorothy and Co. flying on the Gump away from the witch Mombi's castle.
When Dorothy returns the Scarecrow to normal and the Nome King returns from nearly human to life-like live action make-up humanoid. Villainous Breakdown ahoy.
Billina laying an egg in the Nome King's throat in order to kill him.
It was an accident.
In a rare moment for the villains, the Nome King manages to defuse all the Nightmare Fuel around Mombi by forcing her to grovel in terror before him: first, he commands her to kneel; then, when she gets to her knees, the King orders her to lower herself further; finally, with Mombi almost lying on the floor, the King bellows "LOWER!" and chuckles darkly as Mombi flinches and accidentally bangs her head on the floor.
As the Nome King bursts into his ornament rooms after Dorothy solves his test and starts saving her friends, he causes an earthquake. As this happens, the Scarecrow notices an emerald-green vase ( which is actually a transformed person) on a high pedestal in danger of falling, and, without a second thought, does a running dive to catch it before it shatters.
