Awesome: The Thief and the Cobbler
  • The Thief stealing back the three golden balls as the One-Eye's death machine collapses around, over and behind him and escaping without so much as a scratch.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The recobbled cut features truly inspired use of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade" to fill in silent sections of the original film.
    • The whole recobbled edition in general, removing the pop-culture references, disconnected dialogue and most of the Off Model animation in order to present it as the original animated epic it was supposed to be.
  • Tack takes a level or two in Badassery and destroys the whole of One Eye's death machine with one single well-aimed nail.
  • The Escher inspired chase scene.
  • The dying messenger, who, after being shot with numerous arrows and impaled with a flagpole, crawls across the corpse-strewn battlefield, drags himself onto his horse, and rides day and night back to the palace so he can warn them of the oncoming war.
  • Awesome Animation / Visual Effects of Awesome: Williams' original scenes are amazingly well animated. Not only is it technically excellent, but the characters also often move and act in very inventive ways: Of particular note is Zigzag's playing cards scene (animated by Williams himself), which has to be viewed frame-by-frame to catch all the subtleties. In fact, the art was so good that some parts of it, especially the War Machine, looked like animated CGI
    • For the latter portion, the original cut was supposed to be the greatest animation epic of all time, so therefore, Williams put in almost half a century's work into each frame, resulting in animation that mirrored CGI because of its sheer perfection, especially the War Machine.
