The Films

  • Fulton's "audition" to Bombay via slapshots to his car windows.
    • His slapshots are powerful enough to turn the pucks into miniature missiles. Once he learns accuracy, goalies everywhere crap their pants.
  • In D2, during the final game against Iceland. The Iceland players have been making it very difficult for Russ to get off his infamous "knucklepuck" shot. After a timeout the Ducks return to the ice and play resumes. When the Ducks get possession of the puck they send it back to the goalie Goldberg — only it's not Goldberg, but Russ! Once the Iceland players realize the ruse they rush to cover but can't make it in time, and Russ gets off a shot into Iceland's goal to tie the game. The Iceland coach's Big "NO!" reaction shows just how much he did not want Russ to get that shot off.
  • In D3, when Portman returns for the JV-Varsity game, the Varsity enforcer decides to check him just to see how tough he is. Portman proceeds to absorb the hit and send the enforcer flying in the air through the glass.
    • Coach Orion's speech about what confidence really means.
    • And Orion making it clear to the team that their "little Duck tricks" are no longer enough, and that they need to start playing "two-way hockey — offense and defense". Even better, the final game shows that they actually learned their lesson and applied it.
  • A large number of the Ducks actors reunited for a selfie shoot to celebrate the 20th anniversary of D2: The Mighty Ducks.
  • From D3 we also get a few gems from Charlie in the finale; saving a shot by deflecting it with his chest, finally absorbing Coach Orion's lessons in two-way hockey, and the best one? the one that finally shows that he's gotten over his ego: when he takes the puck all the way for what looks like a surefire goal and passes it back to Goldberg before the opposing goalie could prepare for the shot.
    • Following this, naturally, Goldberg managing to sink the winning shot just as he gets tumbled by the defense.

The Animated Series

The First Face Off Pt.1

  • When Nosedive finally learns how to pilot the Aerowing and uses it to rescue everyone.

The First Face Off Pt.2

  • When Wildwing faces off with Dragaunus again, the Saurian leader once again turns invisble and delivers another Curb-Stomp Battle to the young Wildwing. That is until he tries to break his spirit, thinking that both Canard and the mask were lost. Wildwing gets inspired by Canard's last words and finally dons the mask. Awesome ensues.
    Dragaunus: You pathetic fool, you'll never see your friend again.
    Wildwing: No, no I don't believe you!
    Dragaunus: Deal with it, duck boy; Canard is trapped forever in dimensional limbo, along with the mask.
    Wildwing: (Wildwing remembers Canard, gets up and puts on the mask) Wrong, Dino-breath.

  • Tanya facing her (understandable) fear of dinosaurs.

Beaks vs B.R.A.W.N.

  • B.R.A.W.N. (before his brain got zapped) of course being voiced by Frank Welker didn't hurt at all.
