Awesome: The Light Fantastic
  • Cohen the Barbarian fought the Luggage with bare hands.
    • And it turned out a draw.
  • Rincewind beating up a creature or creatures inhabiting the body of possibly the Disc's strongest wizard with his bare hands. And feet. And teeth, knees and elbows.
    • Twoflower helping out Rincewind against that same monster.
  • Twoflower convincing Rincewind not to let go of the ledge.
  • A minor one, but Twoflower showing that he isn't a total idiot by admitting that he knows Rincewind isn't a very good wizard was quite good.
  • Cohen's use of Obfuscating Stupidity to get them all away from some scary natives. "And now I stick the sword in your leg..."
  • It may be minor, but yet, seeing Rincewind actually succeeding in opening the closed door with magic (even if it takes all his energy) is pretty awesome, considering that he was a complete failure in magic.
  • The sheer stoic badassness with which Rincewind forces the Spell out of his mind. You. Out.
