* The laughter scene starts out funny but becomes sweet once you see Yuna join in with Tidus's ridiculously fake laughing.
* A surrogate brother and sister relationship develops between Rikku and Tidus throughout the game, and by Mt Gagazet it's clear that they are incredibly close. If you ride with Rikku to Macalania Temple, she realises he doesn't know the truth about the Final Aeon and gives him a little hug. Tidus is surprised, but finds it nice nonetheless.

*** The above quote casts a bit more light on one of the game's more unspoken character interactions, that of Kimahri and Auron. While Yuna couldn't have known this, it becocmes apparent that the dying man Kimahri had promised to was Auron, not her father. After being mortally wounded in challenging Lady Yunalesca alone, Auron crawled all the way back to Mount Gagazet before he eventually died. Some of the last people he ever saw in life were Rin, and Kimahri. He asked Kimahri, a complete stranger, to watch over Yuna, presumably so that Auron as an unsent could fulfill his other promise to Jecht and watch over Tidus. Kimahri accepted, despite not knowing the man and Auron not having the celebrity that Braska had. Without Kimahri's gesture, Auron couldn't have fulfilled either promise in full. This puts their last interaction in a new light, as well. Kimahri new the whole time that Auron was an unsent, but stayed silent because they had a mission and people to protect.

** Keep in mind that Jecht himself discouraged Tidus to even ''attempt'' to do his move and said that he was the best. Tidus outright [[IncrediblyLamePun shot that notion down]].
* After being warned about the Chocobo Eater on Mi'ihen Highroad, Tidus suggests they go destroy it because it's "the right thing to do." Auron states that Jecht would always say the same thing, which meant trouble for him and Braska, but immediately starts laughing because of the good memories.

* Auron's story about Jecht getting drunk and attacking a Shoopuf becomes one when you remember the earlier scene where Young Tidus pleaded with Jecht to give up drinking. To elaborate: Jecht got drunk while Braska & co. were at the Moonflow, mistook a Shoopuf for a fiend and tried to kill it with his sword. Braska's party had to offer up all their money as an apology. Jecht never touched another drop of alcohol.

* After defeating [[BonusBoss Dark Valefor]] in the [=international/re-release=] editions, some of Besaid's townfolk will stand and yell against the summoner priest some of the same lines they said earlier in the story (the old woman's "Stay away from the summoner!" and the girl's "You're a bad man!") [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere and he will run away cowardly]]. No matter what Yevon thinks of Yuna, she's still welcome in her hometown.

* [[spoiler:Before Auron gets sent by Yuna]], the part where he gives Kimahri, the character he's interacted with the least, a friendly nudge before going is really touching. The fact that his badass theme was playing helped.
** It becomes more potent if you remember that ten years ago a dying Auron tells Kimhari to take Yuna to Besaid, so he's pretty much thanking him for fulfilling his promise. Truly, much of their interaction remained unspoken. Kimahri was one of the last people to see Auron alive, new he was an Unsent, and fulfilled the promise to Braska when Auron delegated it to him. The connection between the two was understood and mutually, maturely, respected.

* An easily-missed example coming from an NPC. If you return to the Mi'ihen Highroad after acquiring the Airship, you can run into a Yevon monk who says he felt it was time to travel the lands and spread the teachings to those he meets. Talking to him again has him add that he plans to learn the Al Bhed language, in the hopes of opening a dialogue with them. After seeing the generally awful treatment most Yevonites - let alone the clergy - give the Al Bhed throughout the game, it's great seeing one of them [[GoodShepherd being willing to extend an olive branch]].

-->''"Kimahri... Do you remember the first day we met? I was only seven. My father had defeated Sin, and all Bevelle was celebrating. Everyone was saying what a hero my father was. I was so happy. But when night came, it occurred to me. My father had defeated Sin and now he was dead. Now, I was all alone. I couldn't sleep, so I wandered into the town, away from the celebrating crowds. I stood on the bridge to Bevelle where my father and I had parted. Standing there, alone, I could see the fields where he had fought Sin. Then, you appeared, Kimahri. You said you were looking for 'the daughter of Braska', remember? At first, I was so scared. Until I realized what a [[GentleGiant gentle person]] you are. You weren't used to talking to children. When I told you that I was Braska's daughter...you said you would take me as far from Bevelle as you could. That it was the wish of a man facing death. I think... I cried then. Because that... that was when I knew my father was dead...and I would never see him again. You just held me, without saying a word. I cried after we got to Besaid, too.
