* The final panel of Gantz: [[spoiler: Kei, after enduring all the horror of the Gantz missions, seeing his friends and loved ones die all around him, and dying ''himself'' multiple times... finally gets to rest, collapsing into Tae's lap, a look of ''absolutely peaceful rest'' on his face.]] EarnYourHappyEnding, indeed.

And souls who were close in life ''stay close'' in perpetuity. Reika will be reborn as a woman in America, Kei with be her son, and Kishimoto will be her daughter. It's not truly the end for any of the fallen.]]

* A major one is at the end of the Oni alien arc, where several people sacrifice their freedom from Gantz to resurrect their's and Kurono's friends and allow Kurono to go free. Even Nishi gets brought back.
** Kato, after being revived, heartfully thanks both Kei and The Old Man, since his points were given to revive him. When Kato finally sees his brother after 10 months of being dead, he discovers Ayumu rumming through garbage cans, having survived on his own this whole time. Ayumu, far from being upset (because as far as he knew, Kato just vanished), runs to his brother and welcomes him back.
** Reika, althought she was in love with Kurono, chose to revive Tae, so Kurono can use his own points to get free and reunite with Tae.
* Pretty much any scene with Takeshi and Kaze, especially the one where Kaze finds out how Takeshi died, and where he engages the Osaka boss alien in unarmed combat after it wounds Takeshi.

** Later on, Takashi stops referring to Kaze as Muscle Rider. But then calls him Dad.

* For as monumental an asshole as Kurono is at first, he also seems to be the most human character. First he earns the most points in the dinosaur mission, by saving everyone on the team and killing more foes than the resident AxCrazy BloodKnight, gaining the respect of literally everyone present. Then he turns down Reika to be with the girl he loves, despite the fact that Reika is rich, an idol, insanely attractive, and devoted to him. All it seemed to take to push him onto the right track was having people finally respect him/be grateful toward him.
* "I did it! Just like I promised!" ~the Nerd Virgin from the Osaka team, [[spoiler:who's gotten enough points by now to bring back Anzu.]]
* In ch. 321, Tae is rescued from certain death by an older man while [[spoiler:aboard the alien ship/planet/sewer/thing]]. That same man had been giving her rather...creepy looks earlier. When she finally works up the courage to ask why he saved her of all people, he says that he's a {{lolicon}}. A short time later, [[spoiler:as he lies dying]], he reveals that his daughter had been killed the day before during the invasion...and that Tae looks a lot like her.
* In ch. 351, [[spoiler: the long awaited reunion of Tae and Kei. After experiencing so much hell during the Katastrophe arc, it's hard not to tear up seeing Kei burst in tears just from seeing Tae again. The alien woman's reactions to this make this moment all the more heartwarming and [[TearJerker tearjerking]] at the same time.]]

Believe it or not, ''{{Gantz}}'' actually has a handful of scenes that are genuinely heartwarming.
