Added DiffLines:

* Cadaverous creates an entire city within the Midnight Hotel, which we learn actually ''grows'' into new locations via magic seeds. When Valkyrie finally runs out of time to save her sister, she plants a seed ''inside'' the Hotel, and smashes through the roof, dropping out of the sky as a giant. Even Cadaverouus is taken aback.
** He follows up by growing to equally giant size to fight her, leading to a full on BehemothBattle.


** To clarify, China knows the first part of valkyries given name and uses it against her so she doesn't go to help Skulduggery. Valkyrie then chooses her name, kicks down the door to china's room (To find ghastly's address), defies china openly making ehr frwak out, and then triumphantly telling china her name before leaving. Not long after that, she gathers enough help to rescue skulduggery from serpine, all without proper magic.

Added DiffLines:

* Omen, in a beautiful mix of suicidal courage and RefugeInAudacity, managing to [[spoiler: hitch a ride with Nero, a Teleporter, directly to the Neoteric's base of operation WITHOUT Nero even noticing (which would have quickly resulted in Omen's death)]]

Added DiffLines:

* Cadaverous Gant and [[spoiler: Skulduggery]] are sent to kidnap a crazed hermit named Tanner Rut as a sacrifice in the anti-Sanctuary's dark ritual. After they force their way into his home, Rut offers them tea, and when they make their intentions clear, [[NotSoHarmless he attacks them with an enormous scimitar that can slice through balls of fire.]] Even the narration seems taken aback.
* Omen infiltrating Arcanum's Scholars with just a stolen mask, getting a front row seat to a meeting with the BigBad. He does get caught out, but manages to escape without revealing who he is - by falling out the window.
* When his classmate finally snaps and tries to kill him, Omen is saved by his teacher, Miss Wicked. [[NoSell She takes two punches,]] then promptly overpowers the attacker and sends Omen to the nurse.
* Valkryie is still tormented by hallucinations of Darquess. As it turns out, [[spoiler: they're not hallucinations, it's a small shred of Darquesse lingering in our reality that only she can see.]] What does she do with this information? [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Punch her in the face.]]


Mr. Bliss is the most powerful mage in the books until we see darquesse and he effortlessly gets ripped apart by a hosted faceless one with no more than a flick of a hand


* Sanguine showing up to fight [[spoiler: the Black Cleaver]], starting with him whistling [[TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly Ennio Morricone]]. And then in the ensuing battle Sanguine manages to completely outmatch his opponent, [[CombatPragmatist using his powers to stay out of reach and attack unpredictably]]. And when he's eventually disarmed and cornered he doesn't even miss his stride, diving straight ''through'' his opponent to tear them apart using his tunneling power. granted [[spoiler: the cleaver promptly recovers and kills him]], but it's an impressive display of his skill all the same, and puts him on par with a lot of powerful individuals.

* In ''Last Stand of Dead Men'', we get to see what it's like fighting a Teleporter. No wonder they were so baffled in ''The Faceless Ones''.
