** What's even more awesome: just before he saw the werewolf, he was boiling with rage over Harry assaulting him. The second he sees the werewolf about to attack the kids, he goes from "what the fuck, Potter," to "get behind me, children."

* The part in ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' when Gryffindor wins the Quidditch Cup. The way everyone is cheering for Harry, and Wood crying. What's particularly heartwarming is the fact that they were doing pretty badly before then, and they would only win if they beat Slytherin by a certain number of points. Wood was half convinced that he would leave Hogwarts with no Quidditch Cup. And yet... ''they did it''.
** The fact that Professor [=McGonagall=] is using a giant flag to blow her nose into to stop herself from crying with joy!
** The way it's written out at the end of the chapter can bring tears to your eyes:
-->''Then Wood was speeding towards him, half-blinded by tears; he seized Harry around the neck and sobbed unrestrainedly into his shoulder. Harry felt two large thumps as Fred and George hit them; then Angelina's, Alicia's, and Katie's voices,'' "We've won the Cup! We've won the Cup!" ''Tangled together in a [[GroupHug many-armed hug]], the Gryffindor team sank, yelling hoarsely, back to earth.''\\
''Wave upon wave of crimson supporters was pouring over the barriers onto the field. Hands were raining down on their backs. Harry had a confused impression of noise and bodies pressing on him. Then he, and the rest of the team, were hoisted onto the shoulders of the crowd. Thrust into the light, he saw Hagrid, plastered with crimson rosettes -- "Yeh beat 'em, Harry, yeh beat 'em! Wait till I tell Buckbeak!" There was Percy, jumping up and down like a maniac, [[NotSoAboveItAll all dignity forgotten]]. Professor [=McGonagall=] was sobbing even harder than Wood, wiping her eyes with an enormous Gryffindor flag; and there, fighting their way toward Harry, were Ron and Hermione. Words failed them. They simply beamed as Harry was borne towards the stands, where Dumbledore stood waiting with the enormous Quidditch cup.''\\
''If only there had been a dementor around... As a sobbing Wood passed Harry the cup, as he lifted it into the air, Harry felt he could've produced the world's best Patronus.''

** Elaborating on this, Lupin lost his three best friends over the course of two days and spent the better part of thirteen years alone and friendless. Meanwhile, Sirius was locked in prison for that same period of time for a crime he didn't commit and had everyone in the wizarding world thinking he was everything he had fought against. Once Lupin enters the Shrieking Shack and Sirius confirms what happened, they embrace, each overjoyed that they have one of their best friends back.

* Harry's thirteenth birthday, the first time he got birthday cards and presents from his friends. The narration points out that this is the first time in his life he felt glad it was his birthday, especially since his twelfth birthday in the previous year was his worst.
* Harry's two weeks of freedom in Diagon Alley is also pretty heartwarming. After a particularly horrible stay with his awful family and a near-miss with a DespairEventHorizon, he is given a very generous amount of slack from Minister Fudge and is given free reign within a capital wizarding hub town.

* While the short scene with Harry and his roommates eating those strange candies is supposed to be there for [[CrowningMomentOfFunny comic value,]] it's also heartwarming in the sense that it's one of the few times in the entire ''series'' where we see Harry look like the young boy that he still is - enjoying some pure fun with friends with all of his usual worries at the back of his mind.

* Sirius on Hogwarts:
-->'''Sirius:''' It's beautiful, isn't it? I'll never forget the first time I walked through those doors. It'll be nice to do it again as a free man.

** There's also the fact that Dumledore doesn't care a jot; he knows Sirius is innocent now -- that is good enough for him. Besides, he's headmaster; if he says it is acceptable, ''then it is freaking well acceptable!''

*Hagrid sticking up for Hermione with Harry and Ron. Telling them gently but firmly that they should be better than this and not let their friendship with her go. Hagrid is Harry's friend and loyal to him through and through but he's not above telling him when he's gone astray.

* The whole backstory of how the Marauders became Animagi. They learn that their friend is a werewolf and, instead of [[FantasticRacism abandoning and shunning him]] like the rest of the wizarding community would, they spend three years learning a particularly difficult piece of magic for the sole purpose of helping Remus during the full moon. James and Sirius may have been bullies, but they would do anything to support a friend in need. This also causes a bit of a tearjerker, when you realise just how loyal Peter was to his friends when he was younger and think what must have happened to make him become a traitor.
