* This Troper will admit to nearly crying at the end of ''{{Persona 3}}''. [[spoiler:You're made to think that your entire team has forgotten about their adventures together after defeating Nyx when suddenly, during Mitsuru's speech on Graduation Day, the promise that you all made together brings it back. Mitsuru stumbles in a speech for the first time in her life, Akihiko pulls Yukari and Junpei out of their seats towards the stage, and (after recovering from her slip-up) Mitsuru - who'd previously been the emotionless, precise bookworm - jumped off the stage IN FREAKING SLO-MO and greeted them all, practically crying. Best. Ending. Ever.]]

* On September 23rd, ask Shinjiro to the movies. [[spoiler:it's a heroic animal marathon. And if you've been paying attention so far, you'll know he loves animals. At the end, he starts to cry, and runs away. It was one of the best moments of video gaming for this troper.]].

** Let's not forget about Ken. After the October incident, what he's living for (outside of finishing what he started) is for your approval/love. His romantic route, while it may be squicky for some, has some genuinely sweet moments. In fact, he says "I love you," multiple times (Rank 10, Christmas Date and March scene), promises to take her on trips when he's old enough (and that's on the Christmas date which is heartwarming for similar reasons as Akihiko's above) and on a more sad note [[spoiler: is the only one that seems to notice that the protagonist performed a HeroicSacrifice and [[PleaseDontLeaveMe asks not to leave.]] ]]

* I don't know about you guys but this troper found Mitsuru's social link quite adorable.
** Especially if you're playing as the female.
*** Oh god yes.

* There's a minor one that hit this troper when he was checking out his social links during the last month to see [[spoiler:Shinjiro's name listed in the Nyx Annihilation Team, despite the fact that this was created after his passing. Gone, but not forgotten, indeed. His name is also never removed from the Fool Link either, causing this one to count double]].
* Two days before the final battle, Koromaru will ask you to go out with everyone. You are then treated to a scene with everyone playing together at the shrine playground. Yukari and Mitsuru discussing clothes shopping, Junpei and Fuuka horsing around, Ken and Akihiko playing on the slide and Aigis teaching Koromaru a handshake. It's potentially a last moment together with the team and they're all enjoying it. *sniff*

* Also, the same troper finds just Akinari's smile heartwarming. For a dying young man, that smile conveys so much life and happiness...
* The female route, Junpei's social link at rank 9. He finally finds your stalker and got into a fight to get the perpetrator to stop taking pictures of you. After explaining this, Junpei goes on to also say that he feels like he's become a better person after knowing you, and realizes that people aren't perfect, everyone has a little bad and a little good in them. He then explains his actual reason behind tracking down whoever was passing around pictures of you: "I guess in the end, I wanted you to trust me. Like, if someone like you could trust me, then I might be worth something..." (This also bordered on tear jerker for me, since I'd gotten this scene closer to the end of December, where it seemed like everything was going wrong. After seeing his life turn to crap, and him getting mad at me over small things, this scene made me think we were still bros for life, in spite of the obstacles.)

* While definitely a tearjerker as well, the credits theme, "Kimi no Kioku", is also happy in a bittersweet way, [[spoiler:discussing the joy the protagonist gave to his friends and that, even in death, they will never forget him]]. The final line of the refrain, translated:
-->"Even if I lose you, Iíll recover you, ''I will never leave you''."

* Although there are a few times when SEES gets to goof off together, the only time ''everyone'' is present and having fun is during Shinjiro's Rank 6 Social Link, where he makes dinner for the entire cast. It's simply an adorable scene. He's patiently trying to teach Fuuka to cook while Junpei, Yukari, Aigis and the MC hover around chattering about how excited they are for the food. Akihiko seems over the moon that he finally gets to eat Shinji's cooking. Mitsuru and Ken and even Koromaru join in the fun. Afterwards, the FeMC has tea with Shinji and Shinji seems calm, satisfied and happy. [[spoiler: Of course, all of this is just awful and tearjerking on a second playthrough. It ''is'' the only time the entire cast is together, because Shinji is going to die within the month.]]

* Hearing [[TrueCompanions SEES]] during the battle against [[spoiler: Nyx.]] No matter how much the MC is hit, they motivate him to keep fighting. However, Junpei stands out, especially in light of [[HeroicWannabe his]] [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter attitude]] [[CharacterDevelopment earlier]] in the game.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, the music box Akihiko gives her? You can use it in battle. It heals 50 SP and has ''infinite uses''. It quite literally lifts the spirits of anyone who hears it. Aww.

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/LiamOBrien was knocking it out of the park for the whole social link. All of Akihiko's flustered blushing and stammering is perfect and sweet and sincere. But nothing beats the NG+ plus ending. The mix of emotions in his voice is incredible.
--->'''Akihiko''': [[spoiler: I remember now. Everything that happened, the fighting, Tartarus, all of it...and how I fell in love with you. I'm sorry I forgot it all.]]


Added DiffLines:

** There's also something sweet about the fact that this scene is nearly identical for the female protagonist. It's so cool that you have one male social link that isn't a love interest - just a totally awesome friendship. At another point, when Junpei asks if you're friends, one of the available options is "More like best friends!". This troper could never pick anything else.

** Especially poignant is Aigis's scene, where everyone is encouraging her that she can change by telling her what they learned through their own CharacterDevelopment. It showcases how much the cast has grown over the past year.

* Easy to miss with everything that is going on during the [[spoiler: Dark Hour on 1/31]] but in the middle of the chaos who else would show up but Natsuki! Despite clearly being frightened out of her mind, she cheers Fuuka on. Not bad for a former bully with no idea what's going on and no way to defend herself.
