* Crosses over with being a {{TearJerker}}, but when the otherwise emotionless Black Mages stand in front of Vivi to protect him from the Black Waltz 3. [[spoiler: What's oddly heartwarming as well is the party's reaction to the Black Waltz 3 destroying the aforementioned Black Mages, they're ''furious'' and instantly move to help Vivi avenge them.]]

* When Amarant, who insists that he [[ChildHater doesn't like children]], comforts Vivi when he's feeling travel sick. He even tells him that he'll feel better if he moves into the centre of the airship.

** Steiner's relationship with Vivi in general is {{Heartwarming}}. He calls him 'Master' from the very start, and never treats him with the same suspicion that he does Zidane.



* When the characters go save Garnet from execution, they are finally intercepted by the Queen, who orders Beatrix to kill the team. Beatrix has been, for a large part of the game an undefeatable boss, a one-eyed badass who vanquished anyone in her way, obeying her Queen in actions that can legitimately be qualified as genocidal even though she had her doubts. But that one last order tipped the scales, making her raise her sword against her ruler. She then proceed to fight a desperate rear-guard action to cover Garnet and the others as they flee, but she does not do so alone. Alongside her is Freyja, the Lancer whose people Beatrix almost exterminated. Though there is no forgiveness to be found in Freyja, she still puts aside her hatred to help Beatrix do what is right.

* In Disc 2, when Zidane tells Dagger that everyone who helped her was following his/her own path, Dagger asks Zidane why he came with her. In a surprisingly romantic and sweet moment, Zidane uses a quote from a play as his answer: "Only because I wanted to go with you." Awwww!

* The final scenes of ''Final Fantasy IX'' [[spoiler: Zidane, thought to have died at the Iifa Tree, turns out to be alive and kicking. While Queen Garnet watches the "I Want to Be Your Canary" play, Zidane (disguised as the male lead Marcus) throws off his cloak and yells, "Bring my beloved Dagger to me!" A shocked Garnet then runs down the stairs, shoves her way through the crowd, and although her pendant falls off, she jumps towards Zidane and they embrace onstage while the crowd cheers and applauds.]] This editor was [[TearJerker crying waterfalls.]] The whole thing's made even more heartwarming by the song that plays as the credits roll, "Melodies Of Life."

** This troper particularly liked how [[spoiler:at first, Garnet thinks that Steiner and Beatrix are going to stop her (Steiner having been no fan of Zidane throughout the game), but in fact they both open the doors for her and smile, basically saying without words "Go to him. It's okay."]]

** And this troper liked how [[spoiler:the first reaction of Garnet is pound on Zidane's chest in a "why did you leave me alone" rage which she cannot sustain for more than two seconds before she totally melts.]] Really, do we think cutscenes really need voice acting?

** This troper's particularly fond of Steiner's in the sequence. Steiner has been adversarial at best toward Zidane for the vast majority of the game. But when he's freaked out, Steiner says in no uncertain terms that he ''will not'' abandon Zidane.

** A huge part of Steiner's character development is him coming to terms with a lot of things, including his relationship with Zidane. Which makes that statement all the more powerful, and Steiner such an awesome character, to this troper as well.

* What felt so heartwarming to this troper was during the beginning portion of Disc 4 when the Genomes start living with the Black Mages. Given how similar the two species are, having them interact with one another as they discover the wonders of life with their shared camaraderie is touching enough, but it's Zidane's moments with Mikoto that was absolutely adorable - he tells the black mages to care for her and he tells Mikoto to make lots of friends because "big brother" said so. That was a pile of heartwarming and cute right then and there.

--> Zidane: Once upon a time... ...there was a man. There was a man who didn't know where he came from...
--> Dagger: ...Zidane?
--> Zidane: This man had longed to find his birthplace ever since he was a small child. His birthplace. A place he only remembered in his dreams...
--> Dagger: Why...?
--> Zidane: He wanted to know more about himself, maybe. About his place, the house where he was born... One day, the man left the home of his adoptive father and went on a quest to find the answer. His only clue was the blue light he saw in his dreams..."
--> Dagger: A blue light?
--> Zidane: Yeah. He thought it might be a memory of his birthplace. An ocean, maybe...?
--> Dagger: Did he find it?
--> Zidane: Hey, you're jumping ahead. A lot of things happened along the way. Alright, we can skip ahead... No, he never found it. How could he? His only clue was a colored light. So he went back to the home of his adoptive father... What do you think his father did when he came home?
--> Dagger: Welcomed him home?
--> Zidane: No way! The father raised his fist and beat the son he had worked so hard to raise.
--> Dagger: Why?
--> Zidane: "I don't know... But you know what surprised him even more? The father smiled, after beating up his son! Can you believe that? He just gave his son a beating. But this is what the man thought when he saw his father smile... This is my home. This is the place I call home. The man is still searching for his birthplace. But he already has a home.

*** The bit immediately after that one is also fairly heartwarming, in a weird way. [[spoiler: After Zidane and Kuja's scene ends, we cut back to the outside, where someone, probably Makoto, is delivering a bit of a eulogy for Kuja. Because in the end, despite all the horrible things he did, he brought the Genomes hope that they can have a purpose in life beyond being the shells they were designed to be.]]
