Awesome / Sofia the First

  • To many, the Disney Princess cameos count.
  • Clover's song in "Blue Ribbon Bunny", and his dancing later on.
  • Desmond at the end of "Make Way for Miss Nettle". He's a Cowardly Lion that's had been trembling over his fears the whole episode (though that makes him all the more endearing), and by the end he finally faces his fears and tackles Miss Nettle out of the air! She still puts him in a bubble... but then we find out that he managed to steal her wand in an awesome moment of Badass Adorable.
  • Clover gets an epic The Dog Bites Back moment in "The Emerald Key" when he summons the woodland creatures of the forest to stop Mamanu.
  • Anyone who's not fond of Disney Princess merchandise and was sure that this show would feature the Chickification of Mulan will surely be thrilled when she shows up to help Sofia in full battle armor.
  • James when he enters the pedal race in "In A Tizzy" with a cannon on his machine - and he comes in second. Not last, second. Imagine propelling a car that goes on pedal power with a heavy cannon weighing it on, and managing to make any speed at all. Even if you're a grownup that can't be easy, and James isn't a grownup...
  • In "The Secret Library", when Sofia challenges the prince over the pegasi, he tells her he can simply cut her umbrella in half with his sword. She delivers a Badass Boast, "You won't even get the chance." She then lives up to it.
  • Several in rapid order in "Bailywhoops". Cedric and Greylock succeed in rescuing the royals from crashing against the rocks, and Sofia then enters the scene. As Slickwell is trying to deal with the mess, and says, "Allow me," Sofia interrupts him and sternly says, "No, allow me...to tell everyone what you did!" She then shows the assembled royalty the spellbook that Slickwell used to curse Bailywick to make him too clumsy to carry out his duties.
  • In the pilot movie, we learn that fencing lessons are part of the curriculum, for Princes and Princesses. Now cut to "Bailywick's Day Off", when we see Sofia and James playing, and Sofia is clearly holding her own against James in their swordplay.
  • All the moments when someone pushes her buttons to far and Sofia gets truly angry, not slightly annoyed, but truly angry and becomes an absolute force to be reckoned with.
  • In "The Tale of the Noble Knight", when Sir Oliver tries to get his sword back from Sir Jaxon only for Sofia to fly in on Minimus and snatch the Ice Fire Shield from him, causing him to fall off his horse, with Minimus saying, "Ten out of ten, Sofia!"
    • She was also able to lift Sir Jaxon off the ground while saving him from the flood!
  • Sofia shows her mettle in "Day of the Sorcerers". Cedric, revealing his intentions to rule Enchancia, has frozen Roland and the rest of the royal family, as well as the guards. His wand is pointed directly at Sophie, and he could easily freeze her before she could make a move. But her resolve to save her family never waivers, and she doesn't flinch. Cedric can't bring himself to harm her, and she quickly seizes his wand and undoes the spell. But this isn't the end of it. Hurt as she was by Cedric's betrayal, she doesn't hesitate to confront him in the dungeon and tell him exactly why she's angry with him, including him saying that they weren't friends, because she's been around him long enough to know it's not true. She actually convinces him to undergo a Heel–Face Turn and turn on Grimtrix, who orchestrated the coup in the first place.
  • Cedric gets a few as well. First, when he hears that Grimtrix has arrived and retaken the royals (minus Sofia) prisoner again, he quickly frees himself from his cell, using Wormwood to fetch the keys. Then, when he reaches the throne room, he pulls a Fake Defector long enough to get Grimtrix's staff and shatter the Medusa Crystal that controls the freezing spell.
  • In "The Flying Crown", while it's not hard to feel sorry for him in this case, Sofia's ability to fling Hugo off his horse three times is definitely amazing—she flings a prince noticeably bigger than her a long distance.
