Awesome: Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny
  • The Pick of Destiny has its moments, but what stands out is when, while wearing the titular pick around his neck, Jables screams a high note into a microphone, which promptly bursts into flames. They call it "Master Exploder" for a reason - later, he even makes a person in the crowd's burst apart, having literally blowing their mind.
    • After getting a spanking from his dad, having all his rock posters torn down, and being grounded for a week, Jables prays for guidance to a poster of Ronnie James Dio (which survived being ripped to shreds by not being visible behind his room door). And Dio answers in song.
    • Jables and Kage powerslide to safety in the Museum of Rock as the guards open fire on them, set to The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again".
    • The entire Beelzeboss: The Final Showdown scene, where they challenged the devil to a Rock Off. Which they lose, but through the power of rock (well, Jables' guitar) manage to defeat the devil anyway.
