* [[spoiler: Sandy's rebirth, and subsequent asskicking of Pitch.]]
** [[spoiler: Jamie's moment where he proves he's not afraid of Pitch, and the golden sand starts to return, overpowering Pitch's darkness.]]
** [[spoiler: After owning Pitch again, Sandman, fresh from being reborn- undoes all of Pitch's work in a few short minutes. Goes to show just powerful the most senior member of the Guardians really is.]]
* The moment where Jack has proven his heroism to the other guardians, and so [[spoiler:North officially makes him a guardian.]]

* [[spoiler:When Pitch is at his strongest and the Guardians (aside from Jack) at their weakest, he mocks the assurances they give to the children by asking "Who will protect the Guardians?" Jamie and the other children walk forward, saying that they will protect them. Against the Boogeyman, and his army of horrific nightmares. And when the nightmares charge on Jamie and the children, they stand their ground, and the nightmares turn to golden sand in response, leading to all the Guardians regaining their powers.]]
* [[spoiler: Sandman's]] death at the hands of Pitch. While he looks shocked at first, he never really appears to be scared, choosing instead to give Pitch an impressive death (no pun intended!) glare. Not to mention that the black sand appears to be causing him terrible pain, which makes his stoicism even better.
** [[spoiler: When he gets restored at the finale, he gets to give Pitch another equally impressive glare with a great little finger wag that precedes Pitch's immediate ownage by golden sand whip.]]
** One can be reminded of the book Sandy first appears in - [[spoiler:When Sandy is first fighting off the Nightmares, he drags them up to his cloud, gives them a DeathGlare (like the one he gives Pitch in the movie) and tells them - actually speaking - that "You are '''not real'''. You are '''not true'''. You are '''nothing'''."]]

* Its easy to dismiss it at first, but the sequence of Pitch taunting Jack in his domain is one of the best in the film between the dialogue delivery, exceptional lightning, use of varied shot angles, and design of the lair. When you're in his domain, Pitch is genuinely ''in control'' and true to the being the Boogeyman himself; he can be truly creepy. The moment he fades into the shadows in the end like the Cheshire Cat top it off with a cherry.

** One of the comics has Pitch having an encounter with one of his last believers, a man who remembers him from his childhood nightmares. The man turns out to be none other than [[spoiler: ''Creator/HPLovecraft.'']] That's right, folks! [[spoiler: Pitch Black inspired the Franchise/{{Cthulhu Mythos}}!]]

* The scene early on where Jack makes ice for Jamie's runaway sled, which does an incredible job of showing off his power in a touching, light-hearted manner.

* The ending, on top of being heartwarming - just, Jack's final lines, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PujaiavUBGI Desplat's score]] is so rousing and exciting that you can't help but get goosebumps.

** Also, the fight scene against Jack and Pitch, if only for the quick, fast-paced, and amazing visuals that accompanies it.

**** It's easy to miss if you're not looking, but when Tooth flies in to back up Jack, she rips through at least four Nightmares like a missile.

** When this troper saw it in the theatre, this scene made nice use of audio panning, effectively adding to the creepiness.
