Les Visiteurs:

  • As he and his king are ambushed, Godefroy throws his Battle Cry "Que trépasse si je faiblis!" and beheads the English knight.
  • The "Mister Sandman" Sequence of sorts when Godefroy and Jacquouille, now stranded in 1992, flee in separate directions after the highway restaurant incident. Godefroy rides on horseback on a road and a truck almost runs over him. He then passes by a train and a jet airliner flies over him. He then shouts "MONTJOIE!", not knowing what the hell this era is, and doesn't stop riding in the countryside until he finds a church to seek sanctuary. The music makes the sequence stand out, it starts with a guitar riff before switching to Era's "Enae Volare".
  • Godefroy confronting a CRS (anti-riot) brigade as if they were medieval soldiers. It doesn't end well for him but it shows how brave and fearless he is.
  • Godefroy going back to his rightful time period and causing the crossbow bolt to momentarily freeze and then swerve, hitting the witch's forehead instead of his bride's father's forehead. That's right, he went back to his home time and forced destiny to play by his rules!

Les Visiteurs: The Corridors of Time:

  • After returning to the 12th century, Jacquouille and Godefroy each have one during the Burgundians' raid. Jacquouille knocks a knight from his horse with a mallet and Godefroy charges the Burgundians alone, killing a soldier with a crossbow and battling the Duke of Luigny, unhorsing the latter and making him flee.
  • Godefroy and Jacquouille getting rid of Friar Ponce the inquisitor just as he's arresting Godefroy on false pretenses. Jacquouille engages the fight by using a red iron on the Torture Technician's ass, Godefroy frees himself from the inquisitor's guards and battles them with his sword, and it ends with the corrupt inquisitor throwing himself in the moat of Godefroy's castle.
  • Even Jean-Pierre, the Butt-Monkey dentist who drank the Time Travel potion by mistake and found himself stranded in 1123, gets his own moment when he golf-clubs a knight by surprise.

Les Visiteurs: Bastille Day:

  • The opening sequence in 1124, which sees Godefroy and his men-at-arms leaving the castle for a horse ride with the ever so epic Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves-inspired "The Knight of Montmirail" playing, and being ambushed by bandits in the woods and defending themselves. Godefroy is Not Afraid to Die even after receiving an arrow in his flank, cuts off the foot of the bandits' leader and finishes him off by planting his sword in his gut. Then it's revealed that it was all a dream since Godefroy hasn't returned by 1124, but judging by the previous films, Godefroy would have behaved with the very same bravery and badassery had it happened.
  • As Godefroy learns that king Louis XVI has been beheaded and the revolutionary prison guards are humiliating the aristocratic prisoners, he dares to pray for him in the face of the mocking warden (in Latin language, no less), stands up and proclaims "The King is dead. Long live the King!" before kicking the collective asses of the warden and the guards and escaping the prison with Jacquouille. Even the scared imprisoned nobles followed his lead by kneeling for the dead king. Whatever the century, Godefroy's loyalty to the French crown never dies.
  • Godefroy and Jacquouille follow Eusèbe (Eusaebius' 18th century descendant) to his hut to drink the time travel potion while a battalion of revolutionary soldiers surrounds the hut and starts closing in, with a variation of the anthem of the series, Era's "Enae Volare", intensifying. They drink the potion and say the formula just in the nick of time as the soldiers start shooting at the house, leaving an explosion behind them.
