-->'''Neeshka:''' I... I can't do it. I won't do it! By the hells, I'm not going to turn on [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe the one person who showed me kindness!]] And if it costs me my life, so be it.



* And ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'' has Neeshka. If you've treated her well, she'll refuse to turn on you even under torture. And when she's bound by her demonic blood and magic to do so anyway, and you tell her you believe in her:

** Getting Elanee to stand with you against the corrupted druid circle of the Mere leads to some pretty good ones too.

-->[[spoiler:'''Knight Captain''': Well done. Are you still going to find those items you spoke of?]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Ammon''': ...No. This...this is all that I need.]]
* If your influence with your party members are high, [[spoiler:then seeing them, one by one, refusing to betray you during the fight against [[TheDragon Black Garius]]. Special mention goes to Neeshka, who ''resists MindRape'' to stay loyal, and Ammon Jerro, who proudly states that he's learned from you, and that he will enjoy killing Garius for insulting Shandra.]]
* Torio will during the trial attempt to [[spoiler: make Shandra witness against you. If you have high enough influence with her, she defends you instead and feels entirerly disgusted by Torio's manipulations.]]

** The entire Trial By Combat bit, from companions showing up one by one during your vigil to Grobnar's song, to the people cheering in the stands. The kicker is that if you choose to save the imps from their crates, even ''they'' show up in the stands. Yes, the creatures who are essentially ''made'' of evil and mischief abandon their torment of the Blacklake populace just to cheer you on.
* Late in the game, [[spoiler:even after you and Khelgar go through an entire Fire Giant tribe ''and'' a '''Red Dragon''' to get back the Ironfist Treasure, Khelgar's old clanleader will ''still'' treat him like crap over having abandoned them. Cue the other Ironfist Dwarves (including one who had ''also'' lambasted Khelgar in his earlier sidequest) one by one coming and sticking up for Khelgar and calling out the clanleader for being an UngratefulBastard.]]

** The entire stage of the Trial By Combat bit, from when companions showing show up one by one during your vigil to offer you comfort/advice/help, ranging from Khelgar and Qara offering to fight in your stead to even the self-centered jackass Bishop showing up to give you some tips and even Grobnar's song, not to mention the people of Neverwinter cheering for you (or your friend/champion) in the stands. The kicker is that if you choose to save the imps from their crates, even ''they'' show up in the stands. Yes, the creatures who are essentially ''made'' of evil MadeOfEvil and mischief consummate mischief-makers abandon their torment of the Blacklake populace just to cheer you on.

* You can surprisingly invoke this with the Spirit Eater curse. The Eternal Rest ability exorcises the undead instead of destroying them. You can use this on sentient ghosts, like the priests and scribes in the Dead God's Vault. They can hardly believe that they're finally released from their eternal servitude.

* Also counting as a moment of awesome, [[spoiler:Khelgar's ''epic'' rant against the injustice of the Ember Trial really shows how much he cares for both his leader and the party as a whole.]]

* Healing the Woodman. In one shining moment you prove that not only does the Wall's hunger not control you, it's got ''nothing'' on you. Especially satisfying when everyone lines up to apologize for ever suspecting you and outright gush over you.

* When you enter the Dreamscape in Act III, [[spoiler:you're immediately thrown into a battle in a dream-Crossroad Keep...with your dream-companions fighting beside you. Even Bishop. Even Qara. Even Sand and Neeshka, if they betrayed you instead. ''Even Shandra'' will be there. Just seeing everyone back together again, fighting loyally to save you, even if it's just a dream, made this troper tear up a little]]. And then, if you talk to them afterwards, [[spoiler:they'll greet you with a cheerful but in-character line that just takes you back to the days of the original campaign]].
