** The very next image is of his gravestone, with "some dark liquid stains on the camera lens". When the Foundation checked the graveston, it found "two [EXPUNGED] of unknown breed". The implication is that two animals tried to do something with 206's father's corpse, and 206 [[BerserkButton didn't like it]].

* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-206 SCP-206]] is a space rover that moves autonomously through space and dimensions, sending back images of its journey to Earth. One sets of said images depicts the funeral of a man, who was the chief engineer of the team who projected SCP-206.

*** In another case, someone inserted a thousand yen along with a note asking for 'something for Cassie' and it dispensed a drawing of a picnic scene, complete with a blanket, picnic basket and hand-cranked ice cream maker.

--> I'd be wary of putting Cassie back through it, even on 1:1. You never know when the damn thing is going to pick something bizarre; one-in-a-million chances happen with depressing regularity around here.

* The start of [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/experiment-log-158-ag Experiment Log 158 AG]] sounds like the typical SCP fare. Professor K.P Crow attempts to use SCP-158, a soul-removing robotic arm, to create a soul for an ArtificialHuman the Foundation is trying to create. It goes from horror right into Heartwarming at the end. [[spoiler: Crow creates the composite soul he desires and dubs it "Project Zero". But when he transfers it into a body, any attempt at psych evaluation "goes out the window". At first. Then it reveals that the intelligence the new soul has created is something that exists in several planes simultaneously and is functionally invincible. EldritchAbomination, right? Well, after some initial communication issues, Crow learns that the intelligence he has created considers him something akin to a father. Crow assures it that it will get the best treatment and body he can provide. In return, all it asks for is a name, something other than "Zero". "A name, not a number". Crow suggests it names itself whatever it likes, to which the being says it will have to think about that for a while.]] It is heartwarming in a weird, SCP Foundation kind of way.
** [[spoiler:She chooses [[MeaningfulName Sophia]].]]

** In the tale [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/cat-s-in-the-cradle Cat's in the Cradle]], Alison, [[spoiler: who is the daughter of Dr. Gears,]] 'borrows' SCP-348 when she catches a cold. Upon finishing the contents, she is greeted with "I haven't forgotten you Alison."

* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-649 SCP-649]]: A matchbox which causes blizzard conditions when opened. It was retrieved from a town where several people, mostly mothers who had miscarried, had disappeared. When the matchbox was closed, the disappeared people returned, claiming that "their children had forgiven them." This seems to make no sense until you read the testing logs. Roughly two hours into the test, the sounds of children laughing could be heard through the snow, and three Class-D personnel were led away into the snow by a group of small figures. [[spoiler:All three Class-D's had children who died before adolescence.]]

** The interview with Lucas however takes a slight level of TearJerker while also being quite heartwarming once the interviewer finds out from LUCAS that whenever the player beats the game with him [[spoiler: LUCAS dies, and is [[AndIMustScream self aware of his own death everytime the game is beaten]]. He is very well aware that he dies when the player wins the game, but does not let it bother him because being able to spend time with the player and make him/her happy is good enough for him.]]

* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1348 SCP-1348]]. The Keter classification and extensive containment procedures make it out to be something complicated and threatening, and, although that could be said to be true, there's a lot more to the article than that. [[spoiler: The addenda reveal a deep and emotionally evocative story about having (and losing, and regaining) faith, a CosmicHorrorStory about how [[HumansAreFlawed humanity's very existence was never meant to happen]] made by an entity who now [[HeroicSacrifice suffers so that it can keep other entities from]] correcting that mistake (as well as [[AwfulTruth keep the world from realizing these truths]]), and ends with a man pouring his heart out in a letter to the daughter he drove away, before seeking out God and the faith he renounced years ago, though the very ending of the article leans pretty heavily into TearJerker and OhCrap territory.]]
* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1470 SCP-1470, the Telepathic Spider]]. Despite being able to communicate with people through telepathy, for all intents and purposes it is a fringed jumping spider, desiring to mate and have offspring that can talk like it does. [[spoiler: When he actually sees the researcher that he's been talking to for a while, Dr. Westington, during maintenance of his holding area, [[HumansAreCthulhu he freaks out, up to this point thinking that the researcher was like him and not even being able to understand what the researcher really is]]. After 1470 calms down, he mentions that the children he had couldn't talk like he could, adding that he thinks that it wouldn't even matter to someone like Westington, who responds by saying that it will be his job to take care of them. That may sound like normal SCP Foundation procedure, but the Special Containment Procedures section stated that the young will be introduced into the wild if no anomalies are detected. [[PetTheDog And that 1470 himself has been laid to rest in a plastic coffin underneath the area where he and the researcher would chat.]]]]

* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2031 SCP-2031]] doesn't seem like it would qualify for this trope at first, being a massive group of army ants that incapacitate mammals (including humans) before taking them over and mimicking them with impressive accuracy. However, it quickly becomes clear to the Foundation that the ants have a surprisingly good grasp of human emotion and personality, after monitoring an infested family's interactions with infested animals. When one of them gets vacated due to the original corpse giving in, the ants inside the humans are visibly shocked to see it gone (with the child constantly [[PleaseWakeUp prodding the corpse to get it to wake up]]), before the adults bury the corpse. Because of this, the Foundation is going to infest a Golden Retriever for the family as a pet, which somehow turns a textbook example of BodyHorror and possibly AndIMustScream into a PetTheDog moment.
