Added DiffLines:

* Caspian gets knocked to the ground by Lord Glozelle, but he hesitates long enough for the Trees to come alive once again and he gets whacked about by their roots.
** Afterwards, Peter helps Caspian up, and it's a testament to Peter's faith in his sister that he immediately says that ''this'' is Lucy's handiwork. She's found the Great Lion, and Narnia is coming alive again, all because of ''her.''
** The fact that Lord Glozelle hesitates at all. Throughout the film, he's portrayed as being something of a reluctant follower, and he's finally given a chance to cement himself on the side of good when he hesitates to kill Caspian, even though the boy was completely defenseless in the moment.
* Aslan waking up Narnia with one, majestic roar.


** And a minor one when he says this to Miraz: "So you're bravely refusing to fight a man half your age?" His [[SmugSmirk smug smile]] right afterwards when Miraz has no choice but to take the bait (and visibly loses his cool while he's at it) just cements the deal all the more.

* The White Witch tempts Caspian and then Peter with the promise of power, but Edmund gets a Moment of Awesome when he stabs her from behind and breaks her spell. Just the whole look on his face, coupled with how he succumbed to her temptations in the first movie but obviously learned something from the experience.

** Also doubles as both a BadassBoast and a StealthInsult. Edmund is referring to his throne name of King Edmund the Just. He's mocking Miraz's lack of knowledge of who he's dealing with, referencing the fact that Aslan (a figure Telemerines fear and despise, if they don't dimiss him as outright fantasy) proclaimed him (Edmund) King over Narnia rubbing Miraz's face in the fact that the Narnia people aren't as dead as he would like and they consider him a usurper, AND corrects and rebukes Miraz ''in front of his own advisors'' while establishing himself as Miraz's equal, effectively proclaiming Peter higher ranked than Miraz. Less than 15 words and he manages all this. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Edmund the Just, King of Narnia
** In the final battle, he steals a crossbow from a Telmarine soldier and uses it to great effect; when his sibling give him dirty looks, he gives them one of his own that basically amounts to "Deal with it."

*** The whole fight itself is a big CMOA for Edmund. At first, he doesn't take it too seriously, seeing as he's fighting someone half his height. But when Trumpkin starts to give it his all, you can just ''see'' the moment Edmund's eyes snap into focus, and he starts giving the duel his full attention. Seconds later, Trumpkin's flat on his ass, and Edmund's expression is a fierce, determined one you just ''know'' was one of the last few things Narnia's old enemies saw.



** The scene where he battles the werewolf and kills it. Then he's the only one who manages to set things right when the White Witch tries to lure Caspian and Peter. He drives his sword through the ice and destroys her, finishing with a true CMOA line towards Peter: "[[DeadpanSnarker I know...]] [[IronicEcho you had it sorted]]."

--->'''Edmund''': The last time I didn't believe Lucy, I ended up looking pretty stupid. (''gives her a soft smile'')

He drives his sword through the ice and destroys her, finishing with a true CMOA line towards Peter: "[[DeadpanSnarker I know...]] [[IronicEcho you had it sorted]]."



** Skandar Keynes actually deserves a mention here as well, since his character got pushed to the background in order to focus almost exclusively on Peter, Susan and Caspian; most of his lines from the book were given to other characters, he has a total of one scene with continuous dialog, and his already minor screen-time suffered even more during the editing process. Despite all of this, he still manages to shine in the few moments that he does get, and he's one of the two Pevensie children that did not end up coming across as a jerk for much of the film.
* Miraz is completely evil, but he's also downright formidable. He's wearing nothing more than a night-shirt, while his justifiably enraged nephew has him at sword-point, his first response is to nonchalantly snark about it, then deliver a ReasonYouSuckSpeech designed to get right under Caspian's skin, bullying him backwards while ''still'' at sword-point and with blood drawn from his neck, and to get his wife - who is understandably horrified when she finds out that her brother-in-law, Caspian's father, was murdered by Miraz (he was meant to have died in his sleep. Per Miraz, this was true... more or less) - to cast aside her uncertainty and fire her crossbow by invoking her MamaBear instincts. If it wasn't for his BadBoss tendencies causing both Lords Glozelle and Sopespian to go along with Edmund manipulating him into a duel with Peter, and the intervention of Aslan, he'd most probably have won.

** The Werewolf's boast is a creepy moment of Awesome that you'll find on the BadassBoast page. It's even better in the book; rather than barely-contained rage, it's delivered in a darkly certain monotone that's chilling and ''deeply'' terrifying.

Added DiffLines:

** It should also be noted Reepicheep actually [[ManlyTears pauses for a moment as he goes under the gate to pay his respects to Asterius's bravery and sacrifice]].


* When the Pevensies meet Trumpkin, and he is unconvinced that the Horn actually called them to Narnia, Edmund [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming offers to fight him (in place of Peter) so that if he loses, it won't be such a loss for them]], but if he wins, it will be in their favour. His fight is awesome, and so is Susan's archery competition, mainly due to Trumpkin's growing disbelief as he's bested by schoolchildren.

** His mice get one when he gets his tail cut off. Lucy heals him, but her cordial can't restore his severed tail. Whereupon the mice draw their swords to cut off their own tails, declaring that they will not retain an honor denied their leader. Which could also double as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. Either way, Aslan is so pleased by their devotion that he gives Reepicheep his tail back.
