* "You stupid.. ugly... son of a bitch. His name... WAS CHIAOTZUUUUU!!! KIKOUHOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!!"
* The end of Episode 20, when they ask for help for victims of the flooding in Australia.
* Episode 21, where Jeice and Burter talk about how they're the best of friends... [[spoiler:[[MoodWhiplash followed immediately by Goku nearly killing Burter]]]]. ''[[spoiler:[[CrossesTheLineTwice Unwittingly]]]].''
* Episode 21 has another moment with Gohan's reaction to Goku's arrival. Of course, [[IdiotHero Goku being Goku...]]
** '''Gohan:''' Dad? Dad! Oh, my God, you're here! I love you, Dad!
** '''Goku:''' That's right, Gohan. [[CompletelyMissingThePoint I]] ''[[CompletelyMissingThePoint am]]'' [[CompletelyMissingThePoint here!]]
* This troper found Guru's [[spoiler: [[BlatantLies false]]]] RousingSpeech to Nail this, somehow.
* Ginyu's realisation that [[spoiler: all his men are dead.]] Really made Vegeta into more of a bastard for denying him that moment.
* Dende healing Gohan while saying he's the only person he respects and can really talk to.
* Even though it was PlayedForLaughs, Vegeta mentions that the Kanassans miraculously repopulated.
* At the end of episode 27, Vegeta gives the "Super Saiyan" speech to Freeza for a third time, only now, he's talking about Goku. The incredibly pained delivery of the line [[spoiler: as he's dying]] makes it all the more awesome.
** Also of note is that while Vegeta's fighting him, Freeza's [[PetTheDog thinking of what gifts to use to break the news to the Ginyus' families]]. This is a guy who'll execute minions to end an awkward conversation.
*** Though Freeza does show more tolerance to the stronger of his minions. Seriously, in episode 28 he openly admits to himself that he misses Zarbon.
** Goku's concern for Vegeta before and after [[spoiler:Freeza kills him.]]
* Vegeta's whole "keep being awesome" thing to reassure Team Three Stars victory against Freeza was kind of heartwarming since it meant he didn't intend to kill them.
* Goku [[spoiler:burying Vegeta after he died]] is surprisingly not turned into a joke, bar Freeza's snarky comments.
* Gohan running up and giving his dad a hug after the battle.
** The entire post-Spirit Bomb sequence, really.
*** [[spoiler:Until Freeza came back, sadly.]]
* Kami remarking that it's "easier than you think" to work with [[EldritchAbomination Mr. Popo.]] In spite of the fact that Popo is terror ''incarnate'' it's clear that he treats Kami a lot better than the other 'maggots'.
** Popo ranks Kami above his own poop. For him, that is high praise indeed.
* Despite how he's treated Krillin throughout the shows run, Goku's reason for going Super Saiyan here is still the anger he felt from Freeza killing his best friend.
* Just like the source material, Goku still warns Freeza to get down to avoid his energy disk.
* [[spoiler: The Namekians killing Guru for lying to them about who caused the famine, resulting in the deaths of many, many Albino Namekians. They clearly showed their disgust and rage at Guru for tricking them to do such a thing.]]
* Seconds after being healed by Dende on Earth, Piccolo's first thought is to call out for Gohan, proving that he does indeed care about the boy [[ParentalNeglect (more than the boy's own dad, it seems...)]]
** And right before that. Dende asking for a hug was adorable, especially in contrast to his CreepyChild persona.
* How about Dende actually showing [[spoiler: that he [[HoYay loves]] Gohan?]]
* The Turtle's birthday party in episode 31. His thank you was just so heartfelt.
* King Cold is much more broken up about [[spoiler:Freeza being murdered]] than in the original work.
* Piccolo's BigDamnHeroes moment against Freeza, accompanied by Gohan's gleeful "Mr. Piccolo!"
* The revelation that the Capsule Corps jacket that Future Trunks wears once belonged to Bulma. A little creepy since it is a jacket she made to show off her midriff, but still heartwarming.
* When Krillin crossed Goku's mind, the first thing he asked was if something happened to him. After Trunks attacked right the hell out of nowhere and Goku blocked it like it was nothing, he simply repeated the question. Nice to see Goku cares.
* This exchange between Goku and Yamcha:
-->''"Wait, Yamcha?"''
-->''"Yeah?"''
-->''"You're my friend."''
-->''"Oh, Uh... thank you, man.''"
** [[spoiler: He did this after hearing Yamcha would commit suicide in the future after finding out Bulma was pregnant with Vegeta's child. Given that his reaction to Freeza showing up on Earth was [[DeathIsCheap "The dragon wouldn't be happy 'bout that one!"]], that means a lot.]]
** [[spoiler: Listen to Yamcha's reaction to it as well. After suffering as TheChewToy for so long, he was legitimately touched.]]
* This exchange between Gohan and Goku after Goku accidentally slaps Chichi through the house walls and into a rock, which shows that, despite Goku's neglectful parenting, Gohan still cares about him and loves him:
-->''"Oh my gosh! Dad, run!"''
-->''"W-what!?"''
-->''"The worst she can do is ground me, now run!"''
* Goku and Piccolo have formed a genuine friendship as of episode 34.
* In a weird kind of way, Bulma and Vegeta's RelationshipUpgrade at the end of the same episode. Compared to the original source, their slightly altered characterization actually demonstrates more on how they mutually support one another: [[HeroicComedicSociopath Vegeta]] has [[MoralityChain someone to keep a leash on him]] and [[TheHeart Bulma]] has, in her own words, "[[{{Badass}} a real man]]".
* After [[spoiler:Dr. Gero attacks the city with his eye beams in episode 35, he brags that he just killed the entire population. Even Goku realizes that Gero couldn't have blasted anyone that was behind him, and is stopped from pointing this out by Piccolo. Piccolo, a former villain, showed concern for civilians.]]

[[folder:Movies/Specials]]
* In the Christmas Tree of Might special, Piccolo wishes Gohan a merry Christmas before being blown away. Brief, but touching.
* At the end of the Bardock special, there is a montage of scenes from the original Dragon Ball series, showing Goku's youth to the main theme song, the actual end credits to the special albeit with CHA LA HEAD-CHA LA overlaid on it. Despite the silliness of the episode, it is nice seeing Bardock's sacrifice pay off.
* In the Lord Slug movie, Goku while fighting Lord Slug on Iguana Street [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny randomly notices how nice a restaurant is]] ([[SkewedPriorities while he's being flung through the window of said restaurant]]!) and mentions that he should take Chi Chi there.
* In the Revenge of Cooler movie, there's something really nice about Cooler [[spoiler: dying and saying that he knows he's cooler than anyone.]]
** It's also a little nice in Goku's conversation with Cooler where the former feels sorry for the latter's past as TheUnFavorite. Goku even shares in Cooler's dislike of Freeza.
** YMMV, but Goku's Platonic EroticDream about Chi Chi while unconscious was kind of sweet.
--> '''Goku''': Aw yeah that's right Chi Chi, [[BaitAndSwitch pour that maple syrup... all over my breakfast]]. You beautiful lady who lives in my house.
* From the end of Episode of Bardock; [[spoiler:Piccolo watching over Gohan while Goku is in space. Even PlayedForLaughs, it's sweet.]]

* The comment of a Youtube commenter. Yes, we are talking about the same website.
-->TFS got me into Maximum The Hormone.
-->Maximum The Hormone got me into Zetzubou Billy.
-->Zetsubou Billy got me into Deathnote.
-->Deathnote got me into criminal justice.
-->Basically, DBZ Abridged made me choose criminal justice as my major for college and my future career.
-->So thanks TFS. Your stupid humor helped me sort my life out.
