* In "The Bank", Dan gets so angry at the bank's ridiculous ATM fees that he manages to crack bulletproof glass with his ''face''.

* In "The Bank", Dan gets so angry at the bank's ridiculous ATM fees that he manages to crack bulletproof glass with his ''face''.
* Dan from start to finish in "Burgerphile", mostly because it's one of the times [[JerkassHasAPoint where he's completely in the right]].
** When Burgerphile gets his order wrong Dan actually acts legitimately reasonable. Going in to voice his complaint, making it clear that he's not holding it against Hortense, and making the reasonable demand to either have his order changed to what he wanted or get a refund. The manager starts things by refusing and having Dan thrown out.
** Dan's plan is to chain himself to the counter with an incredibly strong chain and make a nuisance of himself to drive off customers. The manager threatens to call the cops, which Dan balks at and winds up proven right in not fearing as there is nothing they can do (Dan isn't actually preventing the employees from doing their jobs, merely speaking to customers with unpleasant information, so they legally can't do anything to him)
** The manager at one point forbids customers and employees from giving any food to Dan, who just fires back about how long it takes for someone to starve to death and how bad business will be if that does happen. The manager doubts that Dan will let himself starve to death and is reminded who he's dealing with.
-->'''Dan''': [[{{Determinator}} You don't know me very well do you?]]
** Dan's actions actually start an outright protest that has the staff busier fielding complaints than taking orders.
** The media circus over Dan's antics eventually brings in Jeremiah Burger, who shows up when [[ItMakesSenseInContext the manager is trying to torture Dan]], and proves himself a ReasonableAuthorityFigure by calling the manager out on his {{Jerkass}} actions, nonchalantly activating the sprinklers to put out a fire, shipping the manager back to a prior hated position as punishment for his behavior, and personally cooks up a plain burger for Dan when all is said and done.

Added DiffLines:

** In the same episode: [[spoiler:Impostor Dan]] knows Dan so well that he consistently manages to predict the ''exact'' moment at which Dan will break each of the phones [[spoiler:the Impostor]] uses to call him and switch numbers accordingly. He also managed to [[spoiler:predict the exact position Chris would be in just after Dan broke into his (fake) apartment.]]


* Pretty much anytime Dan takes vengeance on a ''abstract concept'', despite not being humanly possible, and getting his revenge anyway.

* Dan and Elise both getting revenge on ''the state of New Mexico'', by hijacking a UFO and blasting it to pieces.
** Dan [[AccidentalHero destroying an evil cult in the process.]]



* In the episode that shows how Dan and Chris first met at summer camp, Dan managed to encourage the bullied kids to rise up against the bigger and tougher kids their {{Jerkass}} counselor supported, as well as the counselor himself, AND SUCCEEDED!

Added DiffLines:

** Even more awesome, Dan got first blood. Elise seemed so stunned at his aggressive opening attack, it almost looked like she wasn't going to fight back!


* It was a long time coming, but Dan and Elise finally fight in "The Mechanic". And they do so with ''giant robots''. What's even better is the way Dan defeats Elise's superior robot and piloting skills. First he throws a fire extinguisher at Elise, temporarily blocking her view. Then he pummels her robot with his robot's ''own torn off arm''.

* Imposter Dan's {{plan}}.
** Let us not forget Dan's successful revenge plan against him:[[spoiler: He GAVE Imposter Dan his identity. While the audience was initially given the impression that Dan had surrendered, that was not so. Earlier in the episode, Dan had to make a court appearance because he drove his car through a wall. (Don't ask.) He PURPOSEFULLY missed this court date, and, due to the fact that he himself had essentially changed identities (long story) and gave Imposter Dan his, Dan could just call the police and have Imposter Dan arrested, which he did. With no way to prove he wasn't Dan, Imposter Dan had to take the blame for Dan's crime.]]
