* Yoshida, the director of the game, was given a big surprise on his birthday in 2017. [[https://nf.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/6apkn9/yoship_community_project_update_he_got_it/ Players from all over the world and the internet compiled a big book containing screenshots, artwork, and happy birthday wishes and sent them to Yoshia.]] He was very moved by the gesture.

* The end of the 3.2 main story shows the culmination of your battle. [[spoiler:After Vidofnir touches down, she and Aymeric share a speech about the future of existing alongside one another as man and dragon. While there are many in the crowd who are still wary, and the traitors who would rather the fight continue are present and glaring, that all changes when Aymeric reveals the fruits of their labor: a beautiful relief of Shiva and Hraesvelgr, wrapped in an loving embrace. Vidofnir is speechless; and even the leader of the remnants, who would rather die than let go of her hatred for dragons, visibly softens to tears upon seeing the sight, as if realizing what it would mean to end the war for good. While Nidhogg's arrival ultimately prevents the full dispersion of Ishgard's hatred, talking to [=NPCs=] around the town reveals that many Ishgardians were so touched by the ceremony they've redirected their hate towards dragons as a whole to just Nidhogg, especially after seeing Nidhogg sees benevolent dragons as enemies as well, and are more than happy to live in peace once he's out of the picture. Not the most positive stance, but it's certainly leagues better than the initial one held before your arrival in Ishgard.]]

** The end of 3.3 is this even greater; [[spoiler: Hraesvelgr agrees to aid you to end the Dragonsong War, Nidhogg is stopped once and for all, and Estinien is saved. With the Dragonsong War finally brought to a close, Aymeric is able to dissolve the church's power in Ishgard and turn it into a Republic ruled by the Houses instead, and officially pronounces peace with the dragons.]]
*** In the cutscene after the battle with [[spoiler: Nidogg]], the player character and Alphinaud try to save [[spoiler: Estinien by prying Nidhogg's eyes off his armor. As they struggle, two pairs of hands reach to assist, and you see they belong to the spirits of Haucherfant and Ysele. They successfully help pry the eyes off and save the dragoon from his slavery.]]
** The opening quest of Patch 3.4 has you and Aymeric finally sit down for that drink he promised you earlier, along with a dinner complete in [[spoiler: his new House of Nobles]]. It's touching to see him and the player character - who at this point have bonded in battle and have mostly been all business - finally sit down and talk just as friends. He even poignantly asks you what you want beyond your duties of saving the world, showing he cares about you more than just an ally or warrior.

* The end of the first trailer, which is already a moment of awesome, has a subtle moment of heartwarming, when compared to the ''Heavensward'' trailer. It features the trailer male Midlander Hyur again, duelling an unknown female Hyur in a sparring match, after having job changed to Monk now. Throughout the match, he can't stop smiling, a far stretch from the gloomy Midlander seen throughout most of 3.0

* In 3.56 after [[spoiler:you return to The Rising Stones and talk to the Scions, Tataru will approach you after the chat and talk to you about the time she ambushed you previously to measure you up. Turns out she has finally made your outfit and delivers it to you, asking you to try it on. She is touched you approve of it and even remarks she has sown a charm into it that she hopes will protect you and bring you home safely. She is so determined to see you safely home, especially considering the events of Baelsar's wall..]]

* The Level 60 Goldsmithing quest, appropriately called "Two Hearts Beat As One" has you creating anniversary gifts for a roegadyn couple. What you end up producing are a pair of matching music boxes that play two different variations of the couple's favorite song. You end up surprising the couple by putting the music boxes together (Which form a heart), and when playing the two boxes together, perform a composite of both variations that blend well together, of which the wife says is a perfect metaphor for them. When you meet with the man who gave you the quest at the end, he admits that you will truly be one of the legendary masters of the craft.

** [[spoiler:The last Hildebrand quest (well, before he returns) is also a WhereAreTheyNow for everybody touched by the phantom's crime spree and Hildebrand's efforts, as they help you with the quest in some way or another. The Ul'dahn mother acknowledges that both Briarden and Hildebrand helped her rekindle her bond with her daughter. Arabella, the meek adopted daughter of a trade mogul, shows that she's taken a lesson in assertiveness to get you one of the ingredients to cure Hildy of a zombification powder ([[ItMakesSenseInContext don't ask]]). Avila, an Ala Mhigan gladiator who was cheating with the help of Ultros, has started from stratch; her popularity [[IncrediblyLamePun reborn]] and acquaintanceship with yoy is enough to give you the other ingredient.]]

* [[spoiler: A player by the name of Codex Vahlda, who enjoyed playing the game as a level 50 Bard, had passed away from renal failure. When news of his death caught on, hundreds of players from several servers [[http://kotaku.com/ffxiv-community-holds-massive-vigil-for-a-dying-player-1673823454 held vigils within the game to honor the passing of their fellow player]]. The gesture from so many players, including those who did not know Codex personally, is both heartwarming and tear jerker worthy.]]

* The end of the 2.55 story line is full of this towards the player. [[spoiler:You're accused of killing Nanamo, and are branded as a traitor by the Monteraists and the Crystal Braves. Raubahn, before he attacks the true culprit, tells you that not once had he ever doubted you. After escaping by yourself while the Scions [[BolivianArmyEnding stay behind to hold off the corrupt soldiers]], you can talk to several [=NPCs=] in each city and learn that they're still on your side; the commanders in each Grand Company believe you are truly innocent and refuse to believe that you, a Warrior of Light, would murder someone. If you completed a level 50 crafting/gathering class and/or a level 30 disciple of war/magic, the guild masters in their respective guilds tell you that you have their full support. For a major WhamEpisode where it seemed everyone you know has betrayed you, it's heart warming to see everyday people who still believe in you to the very end.]]
** [[spoiler: Not just guild leaders, but plenty of others, your initial escape, is facilitated by a simple chocobo carriage (the same one that brought non-Legacy adventurers to their starting cities). The owners of all three cities adventurer pubs flat-out say they trust you, as do those with close contact of the city leaders, with Gridania and Limsa informing that they've informed all in the know that you are to be granted free movement through their cities, and declare you innocent. The knights of Ishgard, who are probably not happy at some the accusations pointed their way by the conspirators, likewise intend to repay the Monetarist Hospitality with their own, with the leader of House Fortemps even declaring that any attempt to enter or cause trouble within Dragonhead, or the surrounding area in search of you and the Scions will be denied entrance. Knowing so many people are completely on your side will brighten your mood, given the dark ending of the 2.0 story.]]
** Speaking to Haurchefant following the story's conclusion and the credit roll will have him truly prove how loyal an ally he is to you reassuring you that the horrible chain of events that took place in ''Before the Fall'' is not the end for you, guarantees your comfort and safety, and vows to stand at the side when the time comes [[spoiler: to redeem yourself and take revenge against the monetarists.]]
---> '''Haurchefant:''' Do not hesitate to call upon me, regardless of hour. My home is your home, and I would see you afforded all comforts and courtesies. Rest and regain your strength, <name>. [[spoiler: You shall have your redemption and your reckoning in due time]]--and when that day comes, I shall stand at your side.

Here is a man who has given up ''everything'', including his very existence, to protect Eorzea and Hydaelyn. And for that he spent 5 years as an ascended primal being trapped in thrall to another primal. How does he spend his extremely limited remaining time alive before returning to the Lifestream, after being freed from being tempered and existing as the primal Phoenix? By telling Alphinaud and Alisaie one final story, the full truth of what happened in his fight against Bahamet and how he saved Eorzea, and telling both of them about how he's [[SoProudofYou proud of both of them and what they've accomplished]]. The man is about to [[DisappearsIntoLight Disappear Into Light]], and his final moments in the realm of the living is to hug his grandchildren one last time, encouraging them to keep performing great deeds and forge a legacy of their own, with a smile on his face.]]

* The final scene in the ''Further Hildebrand Adventures'' questline features Cyr cleaning up the home in Idyllshire [[spoiler:happy to start a new life away from Ishgard and the Inquisition]]. His cheerful expression shows just how much better his life had gotten since encountering Hildebrand and the Warrior of Light. At the end of the scene, he steps outside and glances at the "family crest" Gigi drew earlier (show at the top of this page) and notices something different about it. [[spoiler:Gigi added a smile to his own likeness on the drawing, showing that he's fully moved past his existential crisis and the grief of his creator's death, happy to be a free mammet and a member of House Hildebrand.]]
