* Rotton the Wizard offering a badly wounded Shenhua a hand after the huge fight at the Lagoon warehouse, stating that he wasn't about to leave her behind to die. On the way out, they even appear to be stopping to help the traumatized Sawyer as well. Shows that even among the Roanapur Freakshow, there seems to be a bit of comradeship between ruthless bounty hunters.

On the way out, they even appear to be stopping to help the traumatized Sawyer as well. Shows that even among the Roanapur Freakshow, there seems to be a bit of comradeship between ruthless bounty hunters. To add to the heartwarming, the three end up staying together and work as a team during the Roberta's Blood Trail arc!

** To really understand the impact of that, remember that Revy preventing people from being emotionally hurt is ''not something that happens.'' And yet she's taking care of Rock emotionally. It hits like a punch.

Added DiffLines:

** The last thing Hansel and Gretel say to each other before splitting up is actually kind of sweet. It just shows that their relationship is indeed the ''most'' humanizing thing about them.
-->'''Hansel:''' (''after gently kissing Gretel on the lips'') Good luck, Sora Mea. I love you.\\
'''Gretel:''' I love you too, Fratello Meu.

** Un the manga, when Revy asks Rock to tell her why she has to always go along with what he wants (with a lot more swearing) Rock gives a little speech [[spoiler: ''Back in my country, you called yourself a gun. If you're a gun, then I'm a bullet. A bullet's just a lump of lead. But, once the hammer hits it, that lump of lead gains the power to blow anything away. If we had never met, then I would have spent my entire life as just a lump of lead. But, we did. The gunpowder was always waiting to explode. And the only thing that can ignite that gunpowder is a gun.'']]

** And then there's the scene where Revy plays with the little Japanese kids. And [[LuminescentBlush her reaction]] when she realizes that Rock was watching the whole thing was just priceless.

** The series' true CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, though, comes in the penultimate episode, when Rock is able to convince Balalaika, the series resident [[DissonantSerenity dissonantly serene]], [[BloodKnight hyper-violent]] [[MagnificentBastard magnificent bitch]] DeathSeeker to not only let him and his friends live, but to help them take down the Kosa Council, simply by reasoning with her, proving that even in an [[WorldHalfEmpty utterly bleak and morally desolate world like the one the series takes place in]], it's still possible to solve your problems by talking it out.

* Minor, but every time Revy calls Rock "babe" or "baby" (not being snarky, but rather endearing) instead of "Rock" in the Fujiyama Gangster Paradise arc, this shipper gets a little "Squee" of happiness from this little touch of tenderness from Revy towards Rock.

** After their massive argument which nearly ends with Revy shooting Rock, they share what's almost a tender moment in the back of a patrol car when Revy gets Rock to give her a light by leaning close together and [[IndirectKiss pressing the end of her cigarette against his]].

(This is such a ''perfect'' example of that trope that it STILL provides the page pic.)

** The final battle in the last episode is a twofer: [[spoiler: Ginji slows down when Yukio admits the only reason she went through with the whole Yakuza thing was only to be with him forever, giving Revy a window to finish him off. His last words in the dub? "Yukio..."]]

** The end of the first gunslinger-maid arc, when it's being outlined to Garcia what Roberta's evil past is. We're all tensed up for Garcia to cut and run in horror... [[spoiler: and his response is to {{Glomp}} her and shout [[ThatManIsDead "I don't know any serial killer! She's somewhere else, far away!"]] Her past identity as a killer doesn't mean she's not the kind, loving maid he's always known, and the clear send-up that redemption is possible is heartwarming in spades]], especially given the series' position on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. In fact, that position adds extra strength to all the moments like this in the series.

** One thing that shows how twisted the morality in Black Lagoon is that one (possible) CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming is an adult woman threatening to kill a child. Or, to be more precise: [[SociopathicHero Revy]] telling [[CreepyChild Gretel]]: "You mess with [Rock] once more, and I'll kill you." That, plus the punch in Gretel's face after Rock stormed out of the room, is the very first time she openly protected/defended him.
*** And the reason that Rock stormed out of the room? He had just listened (with sadness and horror rather than disgust) to Gretel's coldly-delivered BreakingSpeech, which laid bare the fact that she was so traumatized by her past of rape and torture that murder had become her and her brother's sole source of joy. He had held her in a tight embrace and [[HeWillNotCrySoICryForHim wept for her]], begging her to accept the possibility that there is hope, and still a possibility of a new and happy life for a little girl like her. This act of ''sincere'' kindness, so alien to Gretel, had been enough to move even a mass murderer like her to blush like a ''real'' little girl for the briefest of moments...[[spoiler: before, in one of the [[{{Tearjerker}} saddest]] moments of EvilCannotComprehendGood ever, Gretel had offered herself sexually to Rock as a form of thanks, thinking that this was the only way an adult would appreciate her in return]].
** Rotton the Wizard offering a badly wounded Shenhua a hand after the huge fight at the Lagoon warehouse, stating that he wasn't about to leave her behind to die. On the way out, they even appear to be stopping to help the traumatized Sawyer as well. Shows that even among the Roanapur Freakshow, there seems to be a bit of comradeship between ruthless bounty hunters.

* A minor one in episode 3 of ''Roberta's Blood Trail'', when Rock, Revy, Garcia, Fabiola, and Shenhua find Roberta, all hell is breaking loose. When given the opportunity to back out, Garcia says that he owes it to Roberta to bring her home and he won't let her down. Shenhua tells him that that was well said and that he had the heart of a warrior, despite the fact that going anywhere near a pissed off Roberta is a death sentence and that Garcia's statement pretty much meant that she would be facing down Roberta.
