* Timmy in the first and second parts where he has little to no access to magic and is forced to improvise on his own. The second part is especially noteworthy because he swallows his pride and actually goes to his enemies for help.
* The HeroicSacrifice Timmy makes at the end of part two.
* The Darkness, also, gets one when the Lead Eliminator defies the Darkness by saying it can't ''make'' him do what it says. The said Eliminator then fires into the Darkness causing it to cringe. It recovers, though, then tells the Lead Eliminator, "but I can ''unmake you''," and then promptly does so.
* Timmy defeating the Lead Eliminator/Destructinator by [[spoiler: tricking it into absorbing all the weapons it stuffed into Earth with the intention of blowing it up before revealing that he swiped the detonator when he crashed into it shortly before.]]
