** When even that doesn't work, Keiichi gets even more support by rallying [[spoiler:the staff and perverted customers of Shion's restaurant]]. When this catches the attention of [[spoiler:Oryo Sonozaki, whose family owns the village and hates Satoko's family]], Keiichi personally threatens her before humbling himself, to beg for her help. [[spoiler:Oryo]] is impressed enough to actually lend her support, and [[spoiler:just about ''the entire population of Hinamizawa'']] turns out to help as well, even setting up signs on the side of the road to beg motorists to help. Finally, [[spoiler:the snobbish head of Child Welfare listens to them and calls Satoko one last time. Keiichi tells Satoko over the phone about everything they've done to help her, causing her to finally give in and ask for help.]]

* In Meakashi-hen, although it is an early sign that Shion has Hinamizawa Syndrome, when Shion first hears the extra step and belives that it's Satoshi, after a mental conversation with him saying that he'll stay with her and lend her his strength. I couldn't help but think how heartwarming that was, [[MoodWhiplash even after thinking "Oh shit, Shion's going insane"]]

* Tomitake [[spoiler: preventing Takano from being arrested and scapegoated like Nomura planned and getting her treatment for her illness instead. He also says that he'll forgive her even if nobody else will, and that he will help her heal and gradually become Miyoko Tanashi again.]]

** Similarly, Takano seems pretty insistent on eventually giving Satoko a MercyKill rather than letting her succumb to her illness and using her body as a test subject afterwards. Despite this, she's among the people who helps aid the cause of rallying support for Satoko to help her escape her uncle's abuse. It's highly likely that the reason she wants to end Satoko's suffering, either through death or helping prove that she's being abused and needs to be rescued from it [[spoiler: (or both, given her plans}]] is that [[spoiler: she's ''been'' a sad, scared child who was terribly abused by horrible adults and can understand how Satoko must be feeling whenever she has to live with Teppei, making this a big case of EvenEvilHasStandards.]]

* There was also, in Minagoroshi-hen, where [[spoiler: the ghosts of Rika's recently-slaughtered TrueCompanions try to comfort her as she is being disemboweled by Takano]].
* In Minagoroshi-hen, the fact that when Rika suggests siccing the Yamainu on Satoko's uncle to keep her safe Irie is willing to go through with it, despite Takano pointing out that this could endanger his career. At first it just sounds like the drastic action so often taken in Higurashi, but then you realize that beneath the perviness and the claims of needing to keep Satoko alive to further his research on Hinamizawa Syndrome, Irie really, really cares about her.

** Also, [[spoiler: Shion's last words before making her attempted sacrifice is a request to let her twin sister Mion know how much she loves her.]]

to:

* A very small, barely noticeable one - at one point during her gradual spiral into total madness, Shion wonders if Grandpa Kimiyoshi, whom she has chained up in her torture chamber, has died yet, and expresses remorse at the prospect since she actually does love the old man. This may account for why she had been downright civil towards him in comparison to how she treats the rest of her victims.

to:

* When Shion's inner demon is first awakened, she holds her sister Mion down and strangles her, demanding she tell her the truth about Satoshi. She then notices that Mion has three fingernails missing, exactly like her due to her "distinguishing." Mion tearfully explained that, despite her stoic exterior during the actual moment of Shion's fingernail removal, she was appalled and outraged at their grandmother for being so unfair and demanded that she get the same treatment as her twin sister, because as Shion's twin, she wanted to suffer through the same thing along with her rather than see her suffer it alone.

** Special mention goes to Rika in this as she was the only one to understand [[spoiler: Keiichi's sudden memories of killing Mion and Rena.]] It's the first time she ever speaks to him onscreen as her true self and one of the few times her usual AffectionateGestureToTheHead isn't in a mocking way.

* Even cuter, when Rika is at the town meeting with the Sonazoki's they are discussing rumors that their might be a cop snooping around, not knowing Akasaka is that cop. Rika expresses excitement since, she finds the idea of a fresh new face in town. What makes it even cuter is, while she's listening, she's drawing a picture of her and Akasaka holding hands.
