Made significantly less awesome when you know that his tutor - and the receiving end of this speech - was original ''Miranda'' rather than her father, but early editors gave her whole speech about having taught Caliban and now hating him to Prospero.


* Miranda standing up to her powerful father to defend an innocent man. Sure, it's just a SecrettestOfCharacter, but she passes with flying colors.

* The part where the King and his courtiers come upon a table of food and are about to dig in.... when Ariel appears out of nowhere, makes the table disappear, uses magic to knock their swords out of their hands, basically informs them that nothing they can possibly do is enough to combat his extreme awesomeness, gives them a brief TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, and vanishes again. Most productions make this scene fairly epic.

* Prospero's [[http://shakespeare.mit.edu/tempest/tempest.5.1.html speech at the beginning of Act V]], saying farewell to his powers as a wizard. Arguably one of Shakespeare's best soliloquies in a writing career filled with them.
-->But this rough magic\\
I here abjure, and, when I have required\\

Bury it certain fathoms in the earth,\\
And deeper than did ever plummet sound\\
I'll drown my book.
