Added DiffLines:

* Yoda decapitating the clone troopers who were about to kill him in a single stroke - and this is ''after'' he's sensed his fellow Jedi being slaughtered through the Force.

Added DiffLines:

** Also at Utapau, a clone trooper gets into a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KYSHYSSvb0 fist fight with a battle droid]] and WINS.


* Vader and Palpatine observe the first death star being constructed. Vader crosses his arms, and the emperor just stands watching. What an awesome image depicting the evil the galaxy will have to deal with for the next 22 years.

Added DiffLines:

* ''"The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back. Love is more than a candle. Love can ignite the stars."''


* As the Jedi fly through the engagement, most of capital ships are engaged in a StandardStarshipScuffle. Then, out of nowhere, one of the Star Destroyers [[WaveMotionGun fires a turbolaser beam from its ventral hangar bay]], [[CurbStompBattle obliterating]] one of the Separatist cruisers.

Added DiffLines:

** Kit Fisto gets points for trying against the most powerful sith lord of all time, blocking a few hits in the movie and in the Novel lasting long enough for Anakin to see Kit Fisto fighting Palpatine.


* Meanwhile, Yoda decides to do what he does best; kick ass, unleash all of the shit, and personally put a stop to Palpatine's reign of terror, starting off with a Force push so powerful that it ''[[ScrewThisImOuttaHere scares]]'' the Sith Lord, but Yoda won't have any of it.

** Upon entering the Chancellor's Senate office, Yoda effortlessly disables the two door guards by telekinetically dashing them against the wall without even seeming to notice them, they are so insignificant to him.

** The best part? Yoda actually ''wins'' the fight. He first makes Palpatine run for his life, later beats him in swordfighting and disarms him with much less struggle than even Windu, and when Palpatine unloads all of his admittedly impressive Force powers, Yoda still stops them and deflects them back to him. If it is Yoda and not Sidious the one forced to retreat (although that was precisely what Sidious had been trying to do through all the fight) is due to the fortuitous factor that Sidious, with his bigger weight and longer arms, could avoid being blasted off their pod and injured by the fall.
** Sadly, the instance in which Yoda disarms Palpatine is not shown in the film (thought it is in the script and novelization), which makes it an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome. However, what we see onscreen actually makes Yoda even more badass: if Sidious still had his lightsaber on him by the point he stopped using it, it implies the whole reason he only resorts to trolling Yoda by throwing stuff at him from there is because Palpatine has realized he cannot win at swordfighting and that, unlike Windu, Yoda is ''not'' going to engage in silliness before butchering him.

** The best part? Yoda actually wins the fight. He overpowers Palpatine's lightning and proves he's stronger. So strong, unfortunately, that the explosion ends up knocking him away and giving Palpatine time to recoup and get back up while Yoda is injured. Yoda was literally undone because he was ''too'' powerful with the Force, which is both really sad and really awesome all things considered.
** Notice that the whole reason Palpatine resorts to trolling Yoda by throwing stuff at him is that he doesn't have his lightsaber. The script says that Yoda disarmed him of it, in what unfortunately must have been an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome.

** When informed of Padmé's death, Vader uses telekinesis to destroy everything in the room (including the medical droids) and break out of the restraints of the operating table, like some Force-attuned Frankenstein. BigNo or not, that was an impressive showing of the Force from a man who is barely alive.

* At one point, a lone clone trooper takes out two spider droids by jumping on their backs and [[MoreDakka unloading on them from above.]] It's easily missed, since it happens while Order 66 is being carried out, but it's a great one.

** Meta: That's actually Ewan [=MacGregor=] and Hayden Christensen throughout most of the fight, not their stunt doubles, with both having trained in the choreography until they could do it together ''at full speed''.

** And the starfighters fly straight into a massive space battle, with thousands of ships engaged in battle, [[MoreDakka lasers flying everywhere,]] and [[StuffBlowingUp explosions at every corner.]] Easily the biggest space battle in ''Star Wars'' since the Battle of Endor.

** And then Anakin manages to crash-land the wreckage of the ''Invisible Hand'' on a Coruscant runway. To reiterate: he landed a 3570-foot long dreadnought that was never designed for safe landing!

Added DiffLines:

* The Legends novelization gives one to no else but Lorth Needa (the Imperial captain from ''The Empire Strikes Back'' that, after being fooled by Han, went to Darth Vader to take personal responsability for the failure so the Sith Lord would spare his crew from his wrath, [[YouHaveFailedMe knowing he'd die for it]]), by showing why the ''Invisible Hand'' was where it was when Anakin and Obi-Wan boarded it and why the ''Guarlara'' then went and shot it down: a strike group composed by a ''Dreadnought''-class heavy cruiser and three ''Carrack''-class cruisers, that together didn't mass half of Grievious' ship, ''attacked the ''Invisible Hand'', pushed it into position and '''damaged the engines so it couldn't escape''''', at the cost of the ''Dreadnought'' and one of the ''Carrack'', and when contact was lost with Obi-Wan and Anakin Needa, as the highest-ranking officer left in the strike group, went and [[DontMakeMeDestroyYou demanded Grievous' surrender on pain of death]]. Grievous obviously refused... And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czvVyOcxAxQ we all know what Needa called in]].
