* After his [[spoiler: RoboticReveal]], a vengeful Preston makes a menacing bee line towards Shaun, who is rightfully terrified. Gromit, using his improvised bungee, quickly snatches Shaun away, giving Preston an epic DeathGlare as he does so.

* A meta-example. Wensleydale cheese was in bankruptcy and nearly ended production, but when Wallace mentioned Wensleydale as a favorite cheese, sales skyrocketed and saved the company!

* The rescue scene from "Loaf And Death." Through a bizarre series of events, Wallace, Piella Bakewell, and Fluffles fall into a crocodile exibit in a zoo. Wallace manages to grab hold of the wall with his foot and catch Piella's ankle, but poor Fluffles ends up falling right into a crocodile's open mouth. Then, within literally seconds, Gromit hurtles over the wall, wraps the elastic string of Piella's sunhat around Piella's nose, uses that string to ''bungee jump'' into the crocodile's mouth (which he props open with a long loaf of bread to keep it from closing), and grabs Fluffles just in time for the elastic string to pull them both out. The crocodile's mouth closes too late, leaving it blinking in bewilderment as if to say "What the ''hell'' just happened?"

* A meta-example to start things off: When ''A Matter of Loaf and Death'' aired, it was the most watched program of that day, beating that year's ''Series/DoctorWho'' Christmas special. Let me repeat that. ''It beat Doctor Who.''
* The fact that Gromit is so expressive, despite making almost no sounds and in fact lacking a visible mouth, is a testament to just how good the animators at Aardman are.

** At the beginning of the scene, Wallace, normally TheLoad, ends up stuck in his Tencho-Trousers standing on the caboose in the parallel track. As he rolls by Feathers, he snatches the penguin's gun out of his flipper.

* The moment after Feathers has pulled off the heist, and locked Wallace in the wardrobe. He turns around, and there's Gromit, with a rolling pin in hand, looking very cross. Of course, the next moment has Feathers pulling a gun, but still...''awesome''.

* The model train chase. All of it. Especially when Gromit starts putting down track pieces ''in front of the train while at full speed'' from a [[{{Hammerspace}} bottomless box]] of track sections. Not only that, he is able to select the right pieces while doing that to pull off course corrections.

* ''A Close Shave'': Wallace and Gromit pursue Preston, driving a truck full of sheep, in their motorbike-and-sidecar. Gromit, in the sidecar, comes loose from the motorbike and rolls off the road and over a 2000-foot drop. One might think this the end of our beloved canine hero, but instead he hits a sequence of buttons in the sidecar, transforming it into a plane, armed with a porridge cannon, and proceeds to make repeated flyby attacks on Preston! Awesome.
