YMMV: Mouse Guard
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: Celanawe and Gwendolyn's showdown with Midnight at the end of Fall, Lieam avenging Celanawe by destroying the owl toward the end of Winter.
- Not to mention freeing himself during Fall, taking a sword and a dagger, then fighting his way to Gwendolyn, Saxon, Kenzie, and the rest.
- In the Legends of the Guard book, the main character of one of the stories kills a bear by himself.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Saxon's Anguished Declaration of Love to Gwendolyn, and her acceptance at the end of Winter. It's the kind of scene you wish the artist had stretched out a bit more—putting the whole thing on one page feels nearly criminal.
- Tear Jerker: Celenawe's death scene and funeral.
- Conrad's death counts as well, simply because it comes completely out of left field. Sadie even cries in-universe.
- Also, "Wolf, hawk, fox, and snake. Can't stand in my way. My body is weak and it may break. But not today." Sung as Saxon finds the body of his mentor, Loukas, who died with thousands of other mice in Darkheather underground during the war with the weasels.
- What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: It may take place in a Mouse World, but there's quite a lot of blood and gory injuries.
