** When everybody else is incapacitated, Dani takes the Rev-9 on all by herself and holds her own (her odds are helped thanks to the Terminator having been reduced to its weaker endoskeleton and limping). She expends the last of Sarah's shotgun ammo on the machine, and then bludgeons it thrice. You can see the moment she becomes the future leader of the Resistance.

Added DiffLines:

** This is also the first time Terminators actually communicate to each other:
--->'''Rev-9''': [[NotSoDifferent You and I were built for the same purpose.]] Legion is the only future.\\
'''Carl''': I came from a future like that. ''It failed.''

* Grace revealing how, as a child, she'd been confronted by a gang of thugs in the ruins of a city when a now grown Dani rescued her. Dani easily took down two of them while the third pulled a gun on her. After pointing out how a gunshot would just bring the Terminators down on them, Grace proceeds to give a speech on how they need to fight together, not do Legion's job and wipe each other out. In moments, she's converted these scavengers to join the army she's putting together and leads them outside where a dozen others are coming out of hiding. TookALevelInBadass indeed.

** Grace uses a single heavy chain to a ''very devastating'' level. She swings it so much that she can bisect the Rev-9's liquid metal skin multiple times. Just the sounds of the spinning chain and slow motion implemented should be enough to convince you of her power.

* It might not even hit you until a while after the movie ends, but until "Carl" shows up rather late into the film, this is a badass, hard hitting action movie about three female heroes, all of whom prove themselves perfectly deserving of living up to the likes of Kyle Reese and the second film's 101. And then it even flips the assumption that Dani's situation is simply a copy of Sarah's, revealing that she doesn't need to have a son to be the savior of the future, ''she'' is the savior all on her own. And all this is presented without any kind of big speech about feminism or anything, just as a natural thing that's going on.

* Just when it seems like a malnourished Grace will give up her power source to Dani in order to stop the Rev-9, [[BigDamnHeroes Carl makes his entrance onto the scene]] by sliding down the dam's wall and giving Grace her last drug cocktail syringe.

* As [[BrokenBase controversial]] [[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment as it is]], the fact that "Carl" managed to do what [[Film/TheTerminator the first T-800]] and [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay the T-1000 couldn't]]: ''[[HeroKiller killing John Connor]]'' is pretty damn impressive.

On top of that, it took the first two Terminators numerous high-speed chases and battles just to ''get to'' their targets, while Carl only had to waltz up from behind Sarah and shoot John twice.


* Diego Ramos temporarily defeats the Rev-9 by dropping a huge engine on it, pinning it.

* The film confirms several times that Skynet really is RetGone. While the GenerationXerox counterpart Legion [[HumansAreBastards was probably inevitable]], it is a ''major'' solace to know that the events of ''Judgement Day'' still definitely meant the end of the franchise's BigBad. It was not all for nothing.

* "Carl" ends his venture in the most badass way imaginable: after Dani impales the Rev-9 with Grace's power source, "Carl" takes advantage of the situation and grabs onto Rev-9, dragging him and himself into a pit, melting to death together. Now ''that'' is a hell of a way to go out, even for a Terminator - on top of this, he had made up for killing John Connor by turning to the right side, and dealing the first blow in what will become many against the new [=AI=] Legion. As the [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay previous film]] said: if a machine can learn the value of human life, so can we.
