  • Firefly's Dynamic Entry in chapter 2.
  • In chapter 3, Lightning Bolt performs her first Shining Spark and defeats two griffins with it.
  • Mobius' inital appearance in chapter 7.
  • By the end of chapter 9, Twilight, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rarity, the ponies from Mirage squadron, the Wonderbolts and Cutie Mark Crusaders all sing "Gotta Stay Fly" from Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (with slightly changed lyrics) and the entire ballroom (yes, even the noble ponies!) cheers on them and applauds their performance.
  • Rainbow Dash performs a Sonic Rainboom to break inside The Burning Talon in chapter 10.
  • Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle, of all ponies, get one in chapter 11. They use a home-build catapult to help defend Ponyville from the griffin attack.
  • The Garuda team's Big Damn Heroes moment in chapter 13. Heralded by this quote:

Talisman: We bring the fires of liberation.

  • There's one subtle awesome moment for Derpy and Medley in chapter 14. Using a broken piece of turret, Medley throws it at a griffon as a distraction before Derpy dive-attacks him and pushes the enemy toward Medley for a Shoryuken-like uppercut to the beak.
  • As reported by Flare Star in chapter 15, Blueberry fought against four (!) griffins all by herself and even managed to defeat one before being violently killed. It was a Dying Moment of Awesome for her.
  • The whole chapter 17 can be seen as this for the Equestrians. Not only Canterlot is liberated, the ponies in other cities decide to lead their own counter-strikes, driving the invaders away.
    • There is also Fluttershy fighting against Night Raven. What seemed as a cruel No-Holds-Barred Beatdown at first, with Fluttershy being the victim, she managed to turn the tables after Night Raven revealed to her how much of a Blood Knight he is.
