* [[{{Meido}} Wilhelmina]] is hinted at being fairly strong, but you don't realize her true power until episodes 20 and 21 of season 2, where she battles the implacable [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]] Sabrac, dealing blow after awesome blow even after being struck with gradually opening wounds. [[spoiler: The battle includes faking Sabrac out with a fake Yuji, setting her bandages to explode like magical remote mines multiple times, and ''crushing Sabrac between two buildings and then nuking them''. The fact that Sabrac, The Destructive Blade, take all of this abuse without even flinching (and with amusing self-criticism) makes it a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for him as well.]]

* The final battle between [[spoiler: Yuji and Shana (with Sydonay and Margery Daw). Also counts as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and CrowningMomentOfFunny (for when she just headbutts him from a fit of good ol' teenage drama). At this point both anti-heroes just throw everything they have at each other, including the spell that can become any spell, Grammatica, and massive bursts of crimson fire.]]

** Part of what makes this fight so awesome, besides the actual combat, is that Shana finally gets it through [[spoiler: Yuji's]] thick skull that, in spite of the fact that he does what he does for Shana and his other loved ones (and it genuinely does benefit them), it's ''not okay'' to disregard her feelings and unilaterally decide on a course of action. It demonstrates a lack of faith in their love, it's hurtful, and he's destroying himself (which of course only hurts her more). She's in love with him and she wants to be with him, and she's [[spoiler: not going to wait thousands of years for him to expiate his guilt before they can be together, especially when he needs her to keep him on the right path.

* The final battle of the Second Great War, spanning episodes 18 to 23 of ''Shakugan no Shana Final'', is one long, crazy, fast-paced example of this. It features nine Flame Hazes, led by Shana, taking on the thousands-strong army of Bal Masqué, led by [[spoiler: [[PhysicalGod Snake of the Festival]] [[TheStrategist Yuji]]]], Sydonay, and [[ManipulativeBitch Bel Peol]].

** To clarify the final point there, ''THE WAR ENDS WITH YUJI AND THE SNAKE'S VICTORY'', constructing Xanadu in exactly the way they want with the Flame Hazes unable to do anything but stare on in frustrated horror. And then the [[HeelFaceTurn Crimson Denizens voluntarily ask Snake of the Festival to alter the world in the manner the Flame Hazes wanted]].......[[FridgeHorror thereby definitively proving Alastar wrong, meaning the entire Forever War was a pointless mistake on his part]]. Which means, intentionally or not, Yuuji and Snake of the Festival were the BigGood masquerading as the BigBad. How's that for a final act twist?

* Yuji Sakai upon seeing his friend Hirai about to vanish after just one day manages to get her to exist a bit longer by forcing the whole class (but especially Ike) to acknowledge her existence. She still fades away, but it convinces Shana to use her torch to take over her identity.

** The main focus, of course, is on the fight between Shana, Wilhelmina, and Margery and [[spoiler: Snake of the Festival Yuji]] and Sydonay.

When Bal Masqué attempts to implement the backup spell for Xanadu, the Conloquium, it is revealed that Margery had infiltrated the tower to input the code into the backup spell! [[spoiler: And then, Snake of the Festival Yuji reveals that the whole thing was an elaborate decoy meant to delay the Flame Hazes until midnight, when the true plan goes into affect: Snake of the Festival Yuji uses the massive amount of Power of Existence collected by the modified Midnight Lost Child to create Xanadu himself!]]
