* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: There are a few over the series, as is only to be expected:
** Rache's aforementioned [[StealthPun last stand]], where he prays for a final burst of strength in order to die on his feet.
** Arduwynn shooting [[spoiler: the evil King of the East, despite Colbey's being so close that he could have easily missed and accidentally killed the Renshai warrior instead]].
** Colbey overcoming the army of small beasties as part of his initiation into the [[spoiler: order of the Wizards]]. Most applicants try tactical or magical solutions, such as charming the creatures or striking down the leader to claim his place. Colbey's solution? [[spoiler: He just keeps fighting wave after wave. The survivors end up concluding that he must be a god.]] He's a Renshai. It's what they do.
** Near the end of the first trilogy, when Colbey reveals his [[GambitIndex plan]] to the Wizards opposing him.
* TakeThatScrappy: Kevral getting her ass handed to her by Colbey, ''then'' receiving a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech from her aforementioned hero. It was the beginning of some seriously needed CharacterDevelopment.
