* The game makes it damn clear that [[DudeWheresMyRespect you get your due respect]] [[InvertedTrope for your work]]; if you march through Caldeum after [[spoiler:killing Belial]], the townspeople will be gathered in a crowd to cheer you on, and at the start of Act V, one of the NPCs will recognize you as the hero of Bastion's Keep.

* An oft-overlooked one occurs during ''The Templar Reckoning'' as well. Early on, you run into templar inquisitors ready to "initiate" a new recruit. Justifiably outraged, Kormac demands that they stop what they're doing and release the recruits at once. The inquisitors obey on the spot.

* Meta-example: The "Kanai's Cube" added in patch 2.3.0 was at first just a new version of the Horadric Cube, but was re-named in honor of Blizzard artist Kevin Kanai Griffith, who lost his battle with cancer in October 2014; in-universe, the Cube is named after "Chief Elder Kanai", a barbarian so strong, many believed he could've been the next inheritor of the title "Immortal King", before Baal's actions led to the decimation of their culture.

* Depending on the random sidequests you get in Chapter V, you'll encounter rank-and-file angels doing their damnedest to help the Nephalem with the assault on the Pandemonium Fortress, whether it's rearming ancient siege weapons to aid in breaching the walls or directly entering the Fortress to divert Malthael's forces away from the Nephalem's path. It gives the player the sense that no, Imperius does ''not'' speak for all the High Heavens when he disparages humanity in general and the Nephalem in particular, and that Tyrael's views of humanity are gaining in popularity amongst the Host.

Added DiffLines:

* Speaking of Kormac and Eirena, it's worth noting that the Legendary Templar Relic that ensures that Kormac cannot die is called the "Enchanting Favor", whose flavor text describes it as "a diaphanous scarf given as a token of affection from a lady fair". Awwwwwwwwwww...

* Also in Act IV, when Imperius appears and says that if you meet him again, he'll kill you, what does Auriel, one of his fellow angels, say to you, about her overall 'current leader'? "Pay him no mind." It's really heartwarming to know that there ARE Angels that are not named Tyrael that are capable of gratitude.

* In Act IV, the joy in Eirena's voice when she finds out that the Prophet, who saved her and her sisters, and trained them to assist in defeating the Lords of Hell, was an Angel. Special mention, too, to the Angel that, as it lay dying, saw Eirena and reached out to her, giving her the text that contained the truth about her mission and her mentor.

* During the final part of Act V, in order to help you challenge Malthael on equal footing, the souls of those he's imprisoned will aid you. Their spokesperson is [[spoiler: always someone close to the Nephalem--the Demon Hunter encounters the spirit of their long-dead sister, the Wizard meets their most respected teacher in the arcane arts, the Witch Doctor speaks with the representation of their tribal heritage, the Monk reunites with the patriarch of their order, the Barbarian confers with a great hero of their people, and the Crusader has a chance to speak with their predecessor.]] In all cases, the Nephalem show a softer side when talking to [[spoiler: their long-lost loved ones]], no matter how brusque, confident, or aloof some of them might be normally.

* Also from Reaper of Souls, you have the chance to help Covetus Shen finally track down the Jewel of Dirgest, and learn more about the legend behind it. At the very end, when speaking to [[spoiler: the ghost of the woman who may in fact be his true love,]] Shen becomes much more solemn and sincere, and gives a rather heartwarming remark:
