For a game that slowly [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs]] the standard JRPG fare, there ''are'' a few moments that will make you smile in earnest.
* Nier's reaction to [[spoiler:Emil's new form.]] It's basically a floating skeleton in a garb with a metal staff. And it looks pretty terrifying. [[spoiler:Yet as Emil covers his eyes to sob, Nier walks over and lets the poor kid cry into him.]]

* Nier's reaction to [[spoiler:Emil's new form.]] It's basically a floating skeleton in a garb with a metal staff. And it looks pretty unnerving, if not terrifying. [[spoiler:Yet as Emil covers his eyes to sob, Nier walks over and lets the poor kid [[CryIntoChest cry into him.him]].]]



** When Popola informs them that [[spoiler:the villagers are scared of Emil's appearance and don't want them into town]], Nier is ''pisssssed''.
* One sidequest has Nier and Weiss investigating a missing dog for an old man dying of sickness. During their banter Weiss starts wondering about his own mortality. Nier comfort him that he is made of paper and can't die of age which convinces Weiss. then they find the dog dead with a herb in his mouth. The dog has been fetching that herb every day for his master to treat himself. The old man passes away before they come back and Weiss assumes he is with his dog now.

* Doubling as a TearJerker, Ending D. [[spoiler: Nier gives up his own existence to save Kainé, in an act of pure, selfless love. Even Tyrann, who up until that point had been nothing but a [[AxCrazy remorseless psychotic thug]], tells Nier that he's giving up his life probably for the same reason Nier is, implying that despite his truly awful nature, he had grown attached to Kainé in his own way and so was willing to make the same sacrifice.]]
* When [[spoiler:The King of Facade and his men]] face off against a massive Shade boar to buy Nier time, he's visibly shaking with fear. [[spoiler:And then one of his soldiers, who were shown to have nothing but contempt for the boy king when Nier first visited Facade, tell him, "Do not despair, my liege, we are with you."]]
