Awesome: The Road to El Dorado
  • After the volcano coincidentally stops, the scene where Miguel and Tulio revel in glory is awe-inspiring.
  • Miguel's Shut Up, Hannibal! speech to Tzekel-Kan at the end of the ball game.
    • Say it with me, folks: "The gods are speaking for themselves now... There will be no sacrifices, not now, not ever!"
  • Miguel's slow-motion leap to unfurl the sail when the boat is about to get crushed by a pillar. For a second, you can almost believe that he is a god.
  • The chase scene with a stone jaguar powered by dark magic.
    • Don't forget the scene were Altivo the horse turns around at one point...and kicks the stone jaguar in the eye.
  • Miguel and Tulio conning Tzekal-Kan into letting his guard down by acting like they are fighting to the end of their friendship before simultaneously punching him in the face.
    • Considering the glare that Miguel gives Tulio while they're hanging from the vines, that probably wasn't an act. Doesn't change the two-fisted face hit, though.
    • Tulio was putting on an act considering that while he was acting relatively hammy, Miguel seemed to be voicing his real opinions since his voice was more natural sounding and his actions were a lot more restrained. Very different considering that the first time we saw them pulling this kind of stunt Miguel was just as hammy as Tulio.
  • He might be a evil sorcerer that'll give Maleficent a run for her money, but Tzekal-Kan definitely deserves props for every second of his awesome magic. From something as meager as healing a cut on his hand to creeping out Tulio with apparitions/summoning of all sorts of creepy-crawlies to the jaguar that is about as close to a One-Winged Angel as he gets, he wears the Crown on his Moments of Awesome with pride.
