** And '''THEN,''' she has yet another one immediately after the pair recover in the log cabin! The two are ambushed by Hendrik again on their way back to the rest of the party, and Jade fights alone and on ''foot'', while Hendrik is on a ''horse.''. It comes to a climax when she pulls a WoundedGazelleGambit to catch him off-guard, only to knock himm of his horse and jump on its back herself, taking the Luminary with him, and the two head off. And ''then'' she and Rab join the party!

* Sylvando and Veronica get an early one in Gondolia, when the Luminary and Erik are attacked by a group of knights; Sylvando calls at the knights with Veronica at his side, followed by Veronica shooting a swarm of fireballs at the knights and messing them up.
* Jade gets a big one at the Dundrassil Ruins, before she even joins the party The Heliodor knights - and Hendrik with them - once again catch up to the Luminary while he's alone with Jade, but the Luminary barely had to raise his sword; Jade is such a badass that she single-handedly beats the tar out of all of them at every single turn, over and over again. And ''then'', after the Luminary falls off a dang ''cliff'', Jade '''jumps after him, grabs him and hold him close, and''' '''''takes him to safety.''''' That's right, this girl literally fought off your attackers, survived a deadly fall off a cliff, and saved you from certain death, all before joining your party. Jade is ''the'' baddest bitch.

**It gets even better in retrospect when you find out later in the game that Obsidian only trusts Hendrik to ride him. It may have been due to events happening quickly, but the fact remains Jade was able to mount and ride away on Hendrik's faithful steed at all.

* For that matter, Calasmos' masterful return in and of itself. In the first sequence of events, Mordegon completely avoided the VillainBall by anticipating for Calasmos to make a grab for his body with Yggdrasil fallen and the Luminary (seemingly) dead, waiting until ''just'' before Calasmos was about to reclaim his former glory to swoop in and bisect the so-called "Erdwin's Lantern" with the one weapon (now corrupted, but still in fine form) that could destroy him. Calasmos returned fire by planning two steps further by occupying the Luminary's shadow to hitch a ride with him to the past, knowing the Luminary would avert Jasper's ambush, to keep the still-hiding Mordegon from pulling a fast one and exposing him to the heroes well-unprepared. Because the Luminary never prioritized wondering ''why'' "Erdwin's Lantern" fell and why Mordegon was in such a hurry to get rid of it, all the Darkling Calasmos had to do was waddle on out to the desert and call his body down while the party was prematurely celebrating their victory.

* In the beginning of Act 2, the Luminary, Hendrik and a small army of volunteers band together to protect the Last Bastion (formerly Cobblestone) from a horde of undead. The climax of said battle concluding with the sound defeat of the enemy commander by only the Luminary and Hendrik, sending the undead horde fleeing for the hills. Proof that hope does not die easy.
