** And during the beginning of World Cup arc, we see that Leonard Apollo has gone from treating Panther with abuse and hatred to becoming Panther's mentor and turning him from a kid with a lot of untapped potential into someone to be truly feared on the football field.

--> Leonard: [[HeelRealization When did I begin to hate American Football...?]]



* During the Ojou game, the Jari Pro Producer has a massive PetTheDog moment. [[spoiler: He had his teeth knocked protecting one of his models. He believed in Sakuraba even after he changed his ways from Jari Pro and was touched at how hard he worked]].
--> I won't let you lay a SINGLE FINGER on one of my products!



* When enormous Hakushyuu Dinosaurs lineman Rikiya Gaou threatens to rampage through the stands breaking bones to avenge an insult from the audience, Mamori immediately pulls Suzuna behind her to protect her, but then Hiruma leaps in front of them, brandishing multiple tazers, and immediately afterward the Ha-Ha Brothers all jump up wielding their delinquent bats to follow Hiruma's example.

* When Hiruma realizes it's impossible for them to win the [[spoiler: Christmas Bowl]] he takes a moment, puts on his scary face and tells his team a whopping lie about their great chances. They all know he's lying. They believe him anyway.

* When the Devil Bats have tryouts, the candidates are to climb Tokyo Tower carrying a bag of ice in extreme heat (along with other obstacles). If they make it to the top with at least one ice cube left, they make the cut! As you can imagine, mostly everyone gives up. But not Yukimitsu even though he's clearly no athlete. He finally makes it to the top, but all of his ice has melted. Hiruma then sneakily grabs an ice cube and plops it into the bucket, informing everyone that Yukimitsu has qualified for the team!

* At the end of the World Cup, the teams tied, and Morgan declares the game over. When neither teams want it to end like this, they decide to go into overtime. However, instead of seriously playing to crush their opponents by putting all the starters up, Team Japan puts Sena at quarterback. The fans are gone, the tournament is over, and they're just guys playing football and having fun. Anyone who's ever played football will understand how amazing this feeling is.

** And Akaba's request to join team Japan? Have a kick team with either Musashi or Kotaro to show the world the importance of such a team.

** The Bando-Deimon game ends with [[spoiler: the Spiders losing, but achieving their goal anyway. Musashi tells Kotaro that NOBODY could ever doubt the importance of the kick after their game. Thus does Kotaro rally himself and become stronger than ever]].

* Then there's Daisuke Atsumi of the Yuuhi Guts during the last moments of the game against Deimon. "I'm Daisuke Atsumi... and this is my last play!" The fact that the Guts were going to lose no matter what, and Atsumi's last play was destroyed by Eyeshield 21 himself kind of compounds it.

** Later when Gaou grabs Kurita's arm before the final (he wanted to see how much Kurita trained) the Ha-Ha Brothers grab their bats again ready to fight the giant if he hurt Kurita.

* Hiruma forgetting about facts and numbers for one second and actually straight-up ''believing'' in his team. And the pay off as him screaming one of his loudest most happy Ya-Ha.

* Gaou speech about being the Determinator during the World Cup, it is essentially him praising Marco for all the sacrifices he has done in order to pursue his dream, Marco never thought Gaou actually cared about him is surprisingly shocked.

* *Expanded in the anime where Kuroki revealed he read the magazine and knew that Juumonji was covering them. He and Togano decided to leave the death march even without Juumonji because by saying that they are trash. Juumonji then punched Kuroki saying that he will pick a fight with everyone who dare call his friends trash, including them. After beating each other they decided to reunite each other and finished the Death March.

** Then there's Akaba, ace of the Bando Spiders. He and Kotaro annoy each other to no end, and would always bicker over the smallest things, but deep down, they respected each other. [[spoiler: The reason he left Teikoku was that despite being in a team where he could've succeeded and excelled, he found that there was something lacking: that nobody was actually enthusiastic in playing football, even his former Bando team mates, who only wanted to win. He remembered Kotaro, the guy who shared his passion for football and decided it was more fun playing with that guy. Thus when he returned to Bando, he vowed to make the spiders the ultimate kick team.]]

* The Poseidon's quaterback lampshading how useless he is to the team and that the line and Kakei is the reason they do so well. None of his teammates, even Mizumachi who is ridiculously tactless, agrees. And it's not to spare his feelings, they don't see why he would even say that.

* The story of the Bando Spiders in itself is a case of multiple heartwarming moments.
** First, there's Kotaro who takes his position as the kicker very seriously, and despite his unit always being sidelined in favor of the offensive and defensive teams (and being mocked for it too), always practiced to prove that kicking in American Football is as important as the offense and defense. [[spoiler: When both offensive and defensive teams were recruited to Teikoku, he alone rallied the kick team and even turned Bando into a credible team.]]

* The relationship between the Ha-Ha Brothers is this in its entirety, but of special note is this: Juumonji's father tells him that shouldn't associate with 'trash' like Kuroki and Togano. On the same day, Juumonji sees himself being praised in a sports magazine (in an article written by Kurabokuro) mentioning the Devils, while his two friends are once again dismissed and insulted. He then tells Kuroki and Togano that the magazine said all three of them were trash, and the two spend the month up until their game against the Americans seriously training in an effort to prove their worth. During said game, the linebackers help Sena to score in a sweep attack, and when the announcers begin to praise Eyeshield 21 once again, Kurabokuro apologizes to Kuroki and Togano and leads a cheer for them. That moment nearly brought this troper to tears.
