** To extrapolate, [[spoiler: Fighter finds a note written by Black Mage for White Mage explaining that he doesn't mean to act the way that he does around her, it's just that whatever he tries to say to her gets messed up and creepy on the way out of his brain and to his mouth. He recognizes this as a problem and doesn't blame WM at all for not wanting a thing to do with him. It is truly one of [=BMs=] few redeeming moments regarding their "relationship." Doubles as a TearJerker of sorts since it shows that [=BM=] has a shred of humanity under all the evil.]]

* Shortly after Black Mage becomes ruler of Hell, he just can't bring himself to tell Fighter that he didn't go to Heaven. In his words "Even though I'm the embodiment of all mortal evils, I just don't have the heart." He gets another one a strip or two later.
-->Fighter: I bet in Heaven they let you eat cookies for breakfast every day!
-->Black Mage: Yes. That is what they do.

* While Thief and Black Mage try to abandon Red Mage instead of fighting [[spoiler:Sarda,]] it's worth noting that Thief does come back to drag Fighter away with them.

* Although it may not be quite as touching as some of the other examples here, [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2009/02/12/episode-1093-night-of-murder/ this]] strip (especially panels 4,5, and 7). Despite all the ([[RuleOfFunny often hilarious]]) horribe things they've done to people and to each other, there's something strangely touching about seeing three of the Light Warriors share a bed, with the sight rendering [[ThePsychoRangers Drizz'l]] unable to kill them.
* I think the [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2010/01/09/episode-1209-pep-talk-of-doom/ latest strip (as of 1/9/10)]] counts a bit: I actually went "aaw" at the Light Warriors trying to cheer up Black Mage.

* Thief and Red Mage briefly teaming up to protect White Mage against Black Mage. Made even more surprising and heartwarming by Thief's ''extremely'' uncharacteristic HeroicSacrifice and then Red Mage's even more uncharacteristic last stand against Black Mage.

** Remember, this is [[HeroWithAnFInGood Red Mage]] and [[TheEvilPrince Thief]] we're talking about. When they see how far Black Mage has gone, neither of them even HESITATES to act like non-[[StaticCharacter stupid]] non-[[NominalHero evil]] honest to god HEROES

* [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2009/05/09/episode-1126-impasse This]] strip is considered a CMOHW by this troper. Why? Because instead of murdering a person, Black Mage actually gave him a chance to back down. The clincher? It was Fighter.
** YourMileageMayVary, but ThisTroper thought the next strip qualified, too, with Black Mage [[spoiler:telling Fighter to just get White Mage away from him. Of course, it's immediately subverted, but still.]]
