- The climax with the group and Rupert, Earl and Retro on the moon.
- Bob leaving his post to distract the bad guys so Calvin can escape and later on pulling a HeelFace Turn. Not bad for the shy harmless unimportant sidekick.
- The different ways Hobbes and the others manage themselves during the match with the dangerous monsters, with Loophole Abuse and Hidden Depths.
- In the rewritten version, Moe returns in Chapter Two after a period of absence (which the characters have Lampshade Hanged multiple times), where he and his goons bully Susie by taking her doll and threatening to rip it. Calvin, knowing that time is moving normally, decides to stand up for Susie and confront Moe one last time. What follows is extremely cathartic as Calvin, who has dealt with nearly every threat in the known universe, doesn't even flinch at Moe's threats and coolly executes his plan to have his friends bombard the thugs with water balloons. All while giving Moe a calm "Reason You Suck" Speech.
Awesome / Retro Chill
