If the comedy of Attack on Titan is taken into mind, then there are a few Jean and Eren clashes that are worth a laugh, but the one that comes into mind is Sasha. Hajime Isayama himself admitted that he created Sasha to be funny. This does not mean that she is weak in any way.
In fact, Sasha is just as talented as the rest of her squad. She graduated in the top 10 of her class and went on to join the scouts. There have been moments where Sasha's quick thinking and fast action came into use. She comes from a village, so her past as a hunter has better equipped her to hunt titans.

It was one of the most hyped and defining moments of Attack on Titan. It gave fans a feeling of happiness and fun, suddenly, lightning strikes and the Colossal Titan is standing there. A lot was going on at the moment and the whole focus was on Eren.
But Sasha stole the spotlight by saving Samuel with her ODM gear. He would've been hospitalized for a while, but only due to Sasha he got off easy. That as impressive for Sasha to perform it with such perfection, who is clumsy all the time.

Only two episodes of season 2 were dedicated to the potato girl and she proved herself. Sasha decides to visit her village in the midst of the titan's attack and was worried about her people's safety. She arrives to find the houses empty and evacuated. Sounds came from a single house and she goes to check it.
To her shock, a titan was eating a woman and her daughter was sitting near her in trauma. Sasha takes the girl and runs away. The titan catches up to them, she orders the girl to run and stays behind to stop the titan. She pops its both eyes with arrows in a heroic and thrilling action sequence.

Messengers like birds and ravens were the only way of communication back in the day. A small misunderstanding can lead to chaos, so a message should be handled by a responsible person. Sasha was considered up to the task by Commander Erwin.
She took a message from Erwin that revealed the identity of two candidates from the same region as Annie- Reiner, and Bertholdt. This information allowed them to act timely before Reiner and Bertholdt could make their move.

7 Stood On Top Of Reiner

The whole squad of Eren's regiment is exceptionally well soldiers. While others opted to work in the Military Police, safe and sound, and live a relatively easy life. They put their life on the risk for the sake of humanity because no one else did.
Eren, after getting kidnapped by Reiner, has his arms cut off and tied to Bertholdt's back. Reiner transforms into a titan and uses his hands to cover him from Mikasa and the scouts. All the members including Sasha stand on Reiner's neck and persuade him into giving up Eren. It was a courageous thing that most of the veterans would chicken out to do.

With the arrival of Kenny and the crackdown on the scouts, they were left in confusion and few numbers. The remaining had to take on the mission of saving their commander and comrades. These soldiers had never taken a life before and were forced to do it.
In the underground chapel, Sasha played an important role in creating chaos among Kenny's squad. She shot fire arrows at barrels filled with gunpowder to create explosions. This allowed Mikasa and others to move in and take them down.

The relationship of Historia and Ymir was hinted from the start. They were always together and looked out for each other. So when it was revealed that Ymir is a titan, Historia had no choice but to join her because she was the only one who showed her love and kindness.
Historia was reluctant at first and insisted on siding with Ymir. But after a pep talk from Sasha and Connie, she became rational and decided to go back.

4 Warning the Squad About Female Titan's Screams

Growing up in a village surrounded by woods, Sasha learned to hunt with her father. There are no rifles in Attack on Titan, so she did her hunting the old way-using bow and arrow. She is familiar with the forest, unlike the rest of her companions.
She knows animal behaviors. Therefore, when she heard the screams of Female Titan, It immediately clicked in her mind that something is wrong. She warned that a dying animal makes this sound. It gave enough time to everyone to back off before the titans arrived.

3 Heard Titan's Footsteps

After the events of Female Titan, the scouts were made to stay inside the walls. They were bored as hell, talking about random stuff. Sasha drops her head on the table and notices something. She heard footsteps- the big ones created by titans.
She was the one who picked up on it. Her character is portrayed as dumb, but it's moments like these that her intellect shines.

2 Helped Taking Down Reiner

Becoming a scout is not a child's play. The recruits are reformed on the first day by going through constant abuse. But Sasha had it worst than anyone else, she was punished to run around the field until she dropped. In the end, she graduated in the top 10 of her class.
So whenever the stakes are high, Sasha can be relied upon. She did the same at the scouts battle with Armored Titan at Wall Maria. She landed a clean hit on his nape, that led to his defeat. Sasha played an important role.

At the battle of Trost, the recruits were dying by the hands of titans. They had no experience and it left everyone traumatized to see their comrades in blood. Armin got quiet and sat in a corner staring at the ground- his best friend died in front of his eyes.
While everyone lost hope. Sasha came and tried to cheer everyone up. Despite being the weakest in the group, it was courageous of her to keep herself conformed like that.
