** The whole aftermath of that mission is a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, really. Robo volunteering to make Fiona's dream of replanting the forest reality; warping to the present and finding that it worked and the desert has changed into a big forest with a shrine dedicated to Fiona and Robo in the middle; reactivating Robo who happily greets you after spending ''400 years'' without his friends; the group relaxing around the campfire, talking with each other... hell, even the normally silent [[spoiler: Magus]] chips in. Then, after Lucca has saved her mother, you can go visit her. The woman who spent her days looking out the window and slowly drifted away from her husband and daughter has changed into someone who happily talks about the beautiful weather and how she thinks of making a walk before finishing the housework.
*** And then demands Taban dance with her at the Moonlight Parade.

The woman who spent her days looking out the window and slowly drifted away from her husband and daughter has changed into someone who happily talks about the beautiful weather and how she thinks of making a walk before finishing the housework. This gets even more heartwarming in the ending when she demands Taban dance with her at the Moonlight Parade.
*** And then demands Taban dance ** Think about what Lucca is doing when she goes back in time to prevent her mother's accident: Originally it was the accident and the crippling of her mother that turned her mind to science. By going back to that moment and preventing the accident, there was no guarantee that she would have ended up with the same interest in science. By doing that and becoming a completely different person, what's to say that the many important events in the game that rely on her at would have happened? She basically chose her mother over the Moonlight Parade. entire timeline!
*** When viewed on another angle, the event happens right after the party discuss how the whole adventure seem to be guided by "an entity" which can be interpreted as the world's will to survive. The gate leading to the event opens up after this talk probably after this "entity" senses Lucca's regret so that she can prevent the accident. This will to live wouldn't make the portal for Lucca if it knew that changing the event would have resulted in Lucca not having interest in science. The world basically opens up the portal as a way to thank Lucca for starting the event to save it. Isn't that sweet?



* Frog's final words with Cyrus; Cyrus dispels all doubt within his friend, reassuring Frog about the latter's skill as a swordsman, and as a friend. Frog clearly could not spit out what he wanted to say, but he and Cyrus were so close that Cyrus seemed to already knew what Frog wanted to say before departing for good. This is even more heartwarming if you tried visiting the ruins in the present; Cyrus needed the closure himself and 400 years of his own worries and self doubt turned him into a vengeful avatar of hate who's only lucid moment was when he realized he knew someone named Glenn. In essence, the scene wasn't for Frog or Cyrus, but both. Masa and Mune of course lampshades the hell out of this.

* The Crono and Marle moment at Death Peak where Marle hugs Crono after [[spoiler:he was brought back to life and tells him how much she misses him. Lucca, the UnluckyChildhoodFriend, takes her place if you decide not to put Marle in the party]].

* Marle's sidequest and subsequent reconciliation with the King is one of the great TearsOfJoy moments in the game, from the BigDamnHeroes moment of her stopping his sentencing (''"FATHER!!!"''), to the heart-to-heart they have after the EvilChancellor gets his shit ruined. This exchange just caps it:

** And if you decide to kill Magus, [[spoiler: rather than cursing you with his last breath, he tells you to talk find the Guru of Time if you want to bring back Crono. He has no real reason to do this; it's possible that he has some regret for his past deeds and saw this as a last chance to do something good for someone else.]]

** The very fact that, in the ending where they soar through all the time periods, they get to see others whom they met: Ayla and Kino on their Pterosaurs, Magus still searching for Schala, and Frog at Zenan Bridge with Leene and the king. This combined with "To Far Away Times" makes for probably the most heartwarming/TearsOfJoy video game ending ever.

** [[spoiler:Even better is what is shown in one of the alternate endings where both Janus and Magus (as the Prophet) interact, which shows Alfador genuinely confused at which 'Janus' to follow!]]

** For that matter, in one of the MultipleEndings we see him and Atropos have a CrashIntoHello [[HistoryRepeats exactly like Crono and Marle did at the start of the game]].
