'''Alloran:''' Leave him. ''Aristh''... I mean, ''Warrior'' Arbron is a casualty of war.

* Tobias and Ax watching TV together in Ax's scoop. A lot of their POV books focus on their isolation, with their day-to-day lives being difficult and lonely. Knowing they can hang out, be relatively safe, and watch bad TV together while the rest of the team is at school, is really comforting and sweet.

* Tobias morphing to human before Rachel's death, both for her and so that he could cry. Doubles as a TearJerker.

* Arbron staying behind on the Taxxon homeworld in ''The Andalite Chronicles'' leads to a pretty sweet scene between the three major Andalites of the book, each one getting his own CMOH: Elfangor doesn't want to leave his friend behind, but Arbron lets him know that he trusts Elfangor to save the day without him... and the arrogant Alloran, in his own way, lets them know that he honors and respects Arbron's choice:
-->'''Elfangor:''' But you can't! Who's going to remind me not to be so stiff? Who's going to laugh at me when I start talking about being a great prince?\\
'''Arbron:''' You go, Elfangor. Go save the galaxy.\\

** And beyond even that, she learned and kept the secret of the "Andalite bandits" from Visser Three, despite all the damage they had done to the Yeerks. Partly because it opposed the other Visser. But also partly because if their identities were exposed, then it might threaten the children she had in her previous host. Edriss came close to allowing herself to die in order to avoid hurting one of her children (and was saved from that very situation by a timely interruption by the Animorphs). She was probably more human than Yeerk in the end even by her own admission, and even after she returned to the Yeerk Empire. More a human influenced by Yeerk ambition and desire to rule than anything else. And when Essam took her children from her, she didn't go after him for revenge. She went because she wanted ''her children back'' and because even then she thought of him as her friend. So much of what she did was coloured by the humanity she had unknowingly assumed. That humanity could so influence even a Yeerk (and the highest-ranking Yeerk beyond their ruling Council of Thirteen, at that) is, to this troper, a Heartwarming moment.

-->'''Cassie''': No, I don't think we can make peace between all humans and all Yeerks and all Andalites. But you and I can have peace. One Yeerk, one human.

''It did not cause my lips to tingle, but it caused a fluttering sensation in my midriff. Small bumps broke out up and down my arms. I had only one heart now, but it thundered.''

** Earlier in the book, Ax's "date" with Estrid in human morph, culminating in the two sharing a human kiss, and for anyone who's ever had a first kiss with their crush, he describes it perfectly:

*** One of the things Tobias discovers when morphing Ax is that Andalites are ''very, very optimistic''. All of their ritual and serious self-discipline is implied to be practiced thing to keep their natural optimism in check.

*** Especially touching because while Tobias knows [[spoiler: that since he is Elfangor's son that Ax is his uncle]] Ax is completely unaware of that but feels the same [[spoiler: familial]] connection towards him.


Added DiffLines:

** Ax is so eager to teach Tobias about his culture. Tobias is actually kind of surprised by it. The mission is just for him to morph Ax, to trick the Yeerks, but Ax finds a lot of significance and meaning in the fact that Tobias is going to acquire his [=DNA=], because his brother was Tobias' father. Something that could have been a three minute "do it and be done with it" instead becomes a really important bonding experience.

* That scene in #33 where Ax teaches Tobias about Andalites. D'awwwww. Finishing up with him teaching Tobias the words to the evening ritual. "From the rising of the sun to its setting, we place what is hard to endure with what is sweet to remember, and find peace." Pretty much sums up the whole rest of that book, in a very TearJerker way.
* Cassie holding Ax's hand at the end of #38, while he cries.
