** "Let it go... and ''live''." [[spoiler: Paz may have been a traitor, but it's obivious that she had an influence on Big Boss later on, enough for him to tell his son the same thing.]] [[ManlyTears Fuck, don't mind me right now.]]

** Doubly adorable since the poor thing ''tried'' to [[spoiler:read your memory card]] like the old days in addition to the above, but failed [[spoiler:thanks to the PS3 not using memory cards]] and sounded so dejected when he couldn't.

** There's also Big Boss saluting The Boss' grave, which is also an understated CrowningMomentOfAwesome. He's so weak, even sitting up is hard, but he stands at attention. His arm trembles as he tries to lift it, but as soon as his hand reaches his forehead, he forces himself to stop shaking and deliver a proper salute to the woman who defined his life.

* The entire final battle with Liquid Ocelot counts as this in a way. It's the ultimate showdown between you and your greatest rival. One last enemy to be defeated. And by God does Liquid gives as good as he gets, so you might get quite a few of game overs. The kicker is that the word 'Exit' has been changed to 'Exist', and when you select it, you hear Liquid just screams "It's not over yet!" before giving you another chance to rethink your decision. That's right, '''the game itself doesn't want you to give up'''. You've come so far and overcome every odds that's been thrown at you, and there's only one obstacle between you and the ending of the game. This is especially meaningful on harder difficulties, where you're sure to get A LOT of game overs fighting Liquid. And the way he tells you that it's not over could imply that deep down, he wants you to win. ''The BigBad of the game wants you to win.'' If that's not heartwarming, I don't know what is.

* From the novelization, which is narrated from the perspective of Otacon, after [[spoiler: Snake]]'s death: "''I have new friends and plenty of little Metal Gears to be my assistants. But [[spoiler: Snake]] isnít with me. The legendary warrior, the man who made the impossible possible, [[spoiler: Solid Snake, is no longer part of this world. I wonít tell you in this book how long he lived after Big Boss set off on his voyage from that cemetery, or what kind of life he had. All Iíll say is that his last days were peaceful. He passed gently, simply falling asleep with a smile on his face. When I thought back to the days and nights heís spent in constant battle, I found great solace in this."'']] Although it's also an extreme TearJerker, it's also extremely heartwarming to know that after a lifetime of war and tragedy that [[spoiler: Snake]] was able to live out his last days peacefully as he had hoped, and with his friend Otacon by his side to the end, just as he promised.

* After [[spoiler:the destruction of the Patriots AI]], the FROGS, now suffering a mental breakdown due to their nanomachines being shut down, are helped aboard the ''Missouri'' and treated for wounds. One of the FROGS is even seen cradling another and patting her head on a lifeboat.

** Seconded. The touching, soft music, the imagery and glowy haziness of all the white flowers in the cemetery, and [[spoiler:Big Boss]]'s "This is good, isn't it?" never fails to make this troper tear up.

*** [[spoiler: The part that really gets to this troper is one FROG holding another who has collapsed while stroking her head. Seriously one of the sweetest things she has ever seen.]]
** This troper, for one, got a little bit of this every time Big Mama ([[spoiler:AKA EVA]]) says "[[spoiler:That's my boy!]]". Now if that isn't a touching [[spoiler:mother and son]] moment, nothing is.

** Oddly, this troper found the scene in the act 5 briefing where Otacon pulls out his lighter and lights Snake's cigarette for him, despite berating him throughout all the games about his smokes, to be extremely sweet.
** Don't forget the final scene that played after the credits rolled. [[spoiler:Otacon promises Snake that he will remain with him as a witness to his life, remembering everything that Snake ever was, and saying that he and Sunny will stick with him until the day Snake dies.]] Makes this troper choke up every. single. time.

** On the subject of Sunny, her presence by Snake and Otacon's side is pretty heartwarming when you remember the events of ''Sons of Liberty''. In the end, [[spoiler: Olga giving up just about everything]] wasn't all for nothing, after all.
