* The first real fight, the one between Stiyl and Touma, is pretty cool in the anime and manga. But in the light novels it's narrated from Stiyl's point of view, and we see how a magician views [[AntiMagic Touma]] and why he becomes TheDreaded. At one point, Stiyl seriously thinks he might be fighting ''God''.

** This is just after Touma dealt the final blow to Princess Carrissa, wielding the Curtana Original by jumping onto [[{{BFS}} Ascalon]] and having Aqua of the Back ''[[FastballSpecial launch him at her']]'! The resulting [[MegatonPunch punch]] [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom sent her flying at least three or four kilometers]]!

* ''The Miracle of Endymion'' movie:
** Kaori (somehow able to breath in space) protecting Touma and Index's shuttle from incoming missiles and returns to Earth by falling into the ocean.
** Touma's allies are tasked with destroy three explosive bolts in order to purge Endymion from the ground. Misaka's goes after one, Anti-Skill another and Stiyl the last one (replacing Saten due to the difficulty of the tasks for a Level 0). However, Anti-Skill are pinned down by powerful automated defenses so Accelerator takes over for them.
** The Sisters come to Mikoto's aid, one of them armed with a large Railgun.
** At the count of three, Touma's allies unleash their full power to destroy their respective bolts: Mikoto with her Railgun, Stiyl summoning Innocentius that destroys one of the Big Bad's bodyguards along the way, and Accelerator simply punches the ground, ripping the entire structure off the ground.


* Volume 7: Touma finds out he's been tricked into handing a woman over for execution to the [[CorruptChurch Roman Catholic Church]] and charges into their local HQ, alone, to declare war on an army of 250 [[KnightTemplar killer]] [[ChurchMilitant nuns]] while they're [[KickTheDog kicking the dog]].]] GoodIsDumb, but that doesn't make it any less badass!

** This might have more repercussions than you would think. By New Testament 2, Aleister is backed into a corner so deep, he took '''NO''' actions out of fear of disrupting his plans further, even when AC was about to be destroyed.

** And as a testament to how [[NighInvulnerable invulnerable]] Aleister's fortress is, ''[[HolyShitQuotient the building remains unharmed.]]'' To hammer in the point, Accelerator's attack used enough energy to slow down the Earth's rotation for ''five minutes''! (For reference, that amount of kinetic energy would be more than enough to shatter planet Earth several times over.)

* Immediately after above scene, Awaki was seen escaping Cue Accelerator, of all people, showing up to ''wreck'' Awaki in the face. The fight itself only lasts a minute, perhaps even less, it was that big of a CurbStompBattle.

Having to achieve the impossibility of bringing Kamisato back, while escaping the Kamisator Faction, 100 unique superpower users who could all be a [[FinalBoss]] of a volume, if given the opportunity too. Not to mention the rioters and Useful Spider, who want to restore order to Academy City after the Element Invasion/Heat Wave incident.

** After Aleister is punched by Touma, he was lying on the floor of his tower when suddenly Lola Stuart appears and staps Crowley with a sword to kill him. While Crowley lies there dying Lola then suddenly revealed that she was Coronzon, the demon of Thelema, all the time and has now succeeded in defeating Aleister's plan. This is then topped by Crowley himself, as shortly after he died, numerous Crowleys appear, each of them having one of the many attributes Crowley was described of and declaring Lola that his failure was part of the plan all along and says that Lola can have Academy City while is going to take the whole of Britain including the entire British Commonwealth with his army of 1,083,092,867 Crowleys.

Added DiffLines:

* New Testament Vol 21:
** Aleister vs Mathers. No scientific tricks, no support from allies, no irregulars like Touma and his Imagine Breaker, just [[WizardDuel two of the strongest magicians in the world dueling each other]]. What's more, neither is using their usual magic, Aleister is improvising Christianity type magic as part of his character development, and Mathers comes up with his own version off the top of his head [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen to fight Aleister on the same terms]] despite having overpowered Aleister earlier with his regular magic.


** Kakeru might have lost World Rejecter but [[BroughtDowntoBadass he still manages to take part on the fight against the Elements and Yuiitsu]] using common items, the highlight being saving Touma from World Rejecter by shielding him with an umbrella, as World Rejecter [[LogicalWeakness only erases things one layer at a time, so any kind of object can be a one-use shield]].



--->'''Touma:''' Let’s do this.
--->'''Aleister:''' No words are necessary. We know each other better than that.


Added DiffLines:

* New Testament Vol 20:
** Othinus rescues Touma from the Tower of London after he is captured by Necessarius by taming a hawk and having it fly her to the window of his cell, where she undoes the restraints using tools she gathered beforehand. Touma proceeds to escape the building while destroying everything magical on his path.
** Aleister Crowley fights Kaori Kanzaki and Knight Leader at the same time, making a mockery of them and further establishing why she is considered the greatest modern magician.

** The first encounter between Touma and Kakeru, where the two seemignly attack each other, only to reveal [[StabTheScorpion they were both aiming at a completely different attacker behind the other boy]]. The two end up fighting togteher to escape the situation.
** Touma completely destroys Kakeru's arguments about how his idea to save the Birdway sisters is superior by pointing out Kakeru had missed out a possible better solution to the problem despite having had the means for it from the beginning in one of the members of his faction accompanying him.
--->'''Touma:''' It’s important. Checking back over the initial conditions is important, ''rookie''.
--->'''Touma:''' So I’ll say it. I’ll shamelessly take what belonged to someone else and show it off like it’s mine. [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech If you had just spoken to her yourself, you could have saved both the Birdway sisters!! And without the fear and suffering of becoming a bedridden chrysalis! But you tried to act cool, acted like tragedy was a virtue, and readily gave up on them without bothering to worry over it to a pathetic extent! How are you a hero? What salvation is there in anything you’ve done here!? You idiot!!!!!]]
** Kakeru, regardless of his current hostility with him, ends up [[EnemyMine cooperating]] with Touma to save both Birdway Sisters. The two boys still disagree on their stances on the Magic Gods and their right hands, so they decide to face off as enemies and their two right hands clash. World Rejecter erases Imagine Breaker, but Kakeru is badly wounded by the Invisible Thing.
** As he walks away wounded from the clash with Touma, Kakeru is faced with Noukan Kihara and the AAA. Kakeru calls him and Aleister out on their manipulations of Patricia Birdway, an innocent girl, to try and set a trap for him. As the narration notes, Kakeru holds the essence of a hero despite not realizing it nor considering himself to be one; instead calling himself [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent just a normal highschool student]], [[NotSoDifferent just like Touma]].
--->'''Kakeru:''' [[TranquilFury If I had to say whether I was irritated or not, I’d say I’m just a tad pissed]]. This too might have been drawn to me by this ridiculous right hand, but just this once, I’m starting to not even care. To hell with you masterminds. I won’t let you rob anyone of anything else.

Added DiffLines:

** Mina, using her new physical body, gets in Accelerator's way to allow Hamazura and Lilith to escape. After briefly defending herself from Accelerator shooting a storm of leaves at her as razor-sharp projectiles, Mina rushes in and punches him, bypassing his reflection entirely due to being better at calculations than him. While Accelerator has the strongest esper brain and the Misaka Network supporting him, [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Mina still retains her abilities as Aleister's former largescale parallel processing device and AI]].


--->'''Aiwass:''' Oh? Trampling on a newborn mind instead of growing it with love is such an immature thing to do. Isn’t that right, you goddamn demon?

** Upon being reunited with her daughter, Aleister ends the group's fight with the tens of thousands of Mimetic Predators with one single use of Spiritual Tripping. Which weapon does she choose to use? A bomb with the power of the Big Bang. And she doesn't stop there...
--->'''Aleister:''' How naive. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Blasting Rod. In other words, that power will be multiplied tenfold from my opponent’s point of view]].
