* The [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cloth creatures]]. It's impossible to see one and NOT feel immediately cheered up.

!!Band: * ''Only The Young'': During the initial recording sessions for their ''Raised on Radio" album, the Make A Wish Foundation let Journey know of the plight of Kenny Sykaluk, a young boy in Cleveland dying of cystic fibrosis. Journey flew that day to the boy's bedside, gave him a Walkman with a copy of the then-unreleased "Only The Young" and other memorabilia items. Being at the boy's deathbed greatly affected the band members, to the point that even years later, they still break down in tears recalling it. Full story [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Only_the_Young here]], with the Behind The Music retelling [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4iYY4IOer8 here]] at 5:13. !!Game:

** Relatedly, players that chirp a lot even where there's no need to because the scarves are all charged up, just to chat with their partner. And keep doing so until the end [[spoiler: even when you don't have a scarf or even a voice anymore, and you can't hear the sound of your partner's voice or even see the symbol... but you can see their body make the jerky motion as you both trudge up the snowy mountain. Having a partner still tirelessly trying to reach out to you and encourage you even when it has no practical use and you can't hear it... makes the coldest part of the journey the most heartwarming as well.]]

* Players that make an effort to keep their partner's scarfs all charged up, especially when one traveler messes up an obstacle and the other jumps down to help them. It becomes more critical up on the icy mountain, where these two strangers can keep each other from freezing in the snow out of nothing more than compassion. [[spoiler: When these two get to the top part of the peak and find that this doesn't work anymore, it usually doesn't stop people from trying.]]

* ''Any'' time a partner pauses right at the end of a long journey, so you can walk off into the distance side-by-side.

** Not to mention that an uninitiated player, after [[spoiler:dying in the blizzard, the player is resurrected ''alone'', and there's no indication that their partner is being resurrected too, and the last, most triumphant part of the journey feels like it must be made alone.]] Among the most heartwarming moments in the game is finding your partner again.

Fixed a typo.
* For an uninitiated player the list of companion names at the end can be one. If you didn't know before that those were ''real'' people accompanying you on your journey, the realisation that you were never going it alone it truly touching.

No this troper please
* For an uninitiated player, the list of companion names at the end can be one. This troper's friend played through an entire run while unaware that the game has a form of multiplayer. Upon seeing the list of companions, and realizing that they were all ''real people,'' he was nearly reduced to tears, and rendered completely speechless for a good minute and a half.

* The Final Confluence.

The combination of beautiful imagery and equally-beautiful music positively ''radiates'' a very parental pride in the Wanderer's accomplishments.]] ** [[spoiler: Hints, however, at Tear Jerker; the mural ends with the Wanderer(s)' beaten down and collapsing in the snow. When the Wanderer looks questioningly at the White Robe, the White Robe's manner is silently apologetic.]]
