** There's also something about how Nintendo must be aware of the dog's nasty reputation of irritating decades of players. However, none of the trailers were about [[TakeThatScrappy beating the ever-loving crap out of the dog as much as the player wanted]], but instead a simple invitation with as much respects as other characters. It's like Nintendo saying: "He's a rascally bastard, but he's ''our'' rascally bastard."

* In Corrin's reveal trailer, his siblings, united by their love and concern for him, completely drop their animosity towards each other. Almost all of their commentary is either worrying about him, due to the opponents he'll face in Smash, or being proud of him for coming so far.

** Remember that moment in Subspace Emissary where Ness saved Lucas from Porky? Well, Lucas returned the favor, BigDamnHeroes style. Before Bowser can deliver the final blow to Ness, we hear a "PK Fire" and "Lucas Comes Out of Nowhere!" (No, really, ''that's'' his introductory splash.) The fact that Lucas comes in when Ness needed him the most is ''super heartwarming!''

* At the very beginning of ''Subspace Emissary'', Mario and Kirby are performing a friendly fight while Princesses Peach and Zelda watch. Regardless of who wins, the match ends with the two contenders shaking hands and smiling and being good sports. It's kind of sweet to know that they're both okay and that they have so much respect for each other.
* Things go downhill immediately after this, with the baddies beginning their campaign of terror. Petey Pirahna grabs the princesses and throws them into cages, and as the fighting continues, Kirby realizes that things are about to go straight to hell. He has the ability to get himself the hell out of Dodge, but makes a point of taking one of the princesses with him - it's like he's determined to save ''someone,'' even if he can only save one person.
* The confrontation between Bowser and Donkey Kong; Bowser has a gun that transforms the characters intro trophies. Diddy Kong doesn't understand the danger he's in, so Donkey Kong performs a HeroicSacrifice by knocking Diddy into the air, TakingTheBullet Bowser aimed for Diddy. He gets himself transformed into a trophy, all to protect his buddy. Aw!
* The friendship that forms between Samus and Pikachu is sweet. Samus is the "IWorkAlone" type, and since she's human and Pikachu is a Pokémon, it makes her look like Pikachu's trainer.
** Especially her face when she sees Pikachu being basically tortured in the machine. She takes in about a ''second'' of seeing the little guy squealing in pain and promptly responds with a non-verbal HELL NO and smashes the glass.
** And what does Pikachu do the second it's released from being ''tortured''? Jumps in front of Samus with cheeks sparking, ready to defend its savior from the R.O.B.s attracted by the alarm.
* When Ness realizes the badges that revived him and Luigi belong to Dedede, he immediately decides to revive him. This for some guy he doesn't even know! On that note, there's also Ness and Luigi helping Dedede up after Wario attacks him. This doubles as a [=CMoF=] on Wario's part.
* Ness again, he jumps in to save a kid he just met. Then he pushes him out of harms way not knowing if he'll be revived or not! Ness is a real sweet kid. And years later, when Nintendo wanted to show Lucas' return to Smash Bros, what did his reveal trailer depict? Lucas coming to Ness' rescue and repaying a long overdue favor.
* Whichever scene you play ("Mario's Misunderstanding/Link's Misunderstanding") is kind of heartwarming in a way. Which of the two scenes plays out depends on which princess gets rescued by Kirby in the scenario mentioned above; the hero of the one he doesn't save is the one who has the misunderstanding. If it's Mario, he thinks that Peach has been attacked by Link, and rushes to avenge her. If it's Link, he thinks that Mario attacked Zelda, and tries to ''ram his sword down the plumber's head''. Either way, it's nice to know how much they both care.
* Dedede! Boy, was he a surprise! First he [[spoiler:gathers up as many heroes as he can in one place to make a hero team. Then he gives up the one thing he knows can revive trophies for one of the princesses. Near the end of the game he gives Kirby a BearHug!]]
* The friendship between Pokémon Trainer and Lucas, particularly their handshake after [[spoiler:Lucas's Crowning Moment of Awesome blowing up Galleom's arm to save himself and PT.]] And [[AntiHero Meta Knight]] swooping in and saving the duo from a deadly fall at the last minute, after Lucas [[spoiler:frees them from Galleom.]]
* After defeating Tabuu, you see the entire playable cast (or at least, all those you saved) on a cliff, overlooking the ocean where the Great Maze area of Subspace was, with the main theme blaring full blast. Then, the credits cut in, with an epic medley of the credits theme of the original ''Smash Bros.'', the main theme of ''Melee'', and a piano solo of the main theme from ''Brawl'', all while bits of cutscenes that correspond to the mood of the music play in a little box on the screen.
** The music is great, and now knowing the lyrics, its meaning is clear.
--> "Now, my friends are here with me. [[EnemyMine Some once heroes, some my mortal enemies]]. And now, as we face each other in battle, locked in combat, we shine ever brighter."
* The fact Diddy Kong forces Fox and Falco to help save his friend Donkey Kong is sweet. For Donkey Kong, at least.
** The fact that neither of the protest much indicates that they really don't mind helping. Falco's thumbs-up to Diddy is proof of that.
** The second time around with Diddy dragging Falco, Fox follows behind giving Falco a "Just roll with it" expression that really helps to drive home that he (and Falco) are absolutely cool with helping the guy out.
* When Snake finally joins the party, he doesn't seem to know exactly what's happening, but he knows enough to know that he needs to help. First, though, his priority is to urge Peach and Zelda to stay where they are, so that they remain out of harm's way. They ''don't'', of course, but considering that he's just met them both for the first time, it's very good of him to want to make sure they're safe. (And to be fair, it's not like he knows one of them's a freakin' ninja.)
* Peach stops a fight between Sheik and Fox... by offering them tea. It's both a CMOH and a CMOF, especially when Fox glances at Sheik and sees her drinking tea through her face wrappings.
* When Link and Zelda find Ganondorf's trophy, they share a glance with each other before reviving him. Ganondorf is shocked by this, and while he considers attacking them the moment they turn their backs on him, he decides against it and instead follows them to fight Tabuu, knowing that he is the true enemy.
* Diddy Kong urging R.O.B. to escape before the area they're in explodes, and Donkey Kong just straight up carrying R.O.B. out when he refuses to move.
* The concept alone of the many famous protagonists of several video game franchises teaming up together to defeat one great evil. Even better that even the antagonists, who were initially puppets of Tabuu, join our heroes in the very end to save the world, knowing that it's for the greater good.
* Some examples which are not from ''Subspace Emissary'':
** The reason behind HideoKojima asking Snake to be in ''Brawl''? His kids are fans and they wanted to see one of their father's characters in the game.
** During Snake's codec conversation about Luigi, Snake instantly argues in Luigi's defense when [[spoiler: AI]] Colonel starts mocking Luigi.
*** Another codec conversation, Snake sympathizing with Lucas' [[spoiler: troubles and with the loss of a brother and mother]] is particularly heartwarming.

* YMMV on this, but seeing the DLC costumes can be this. Even if a character couldn't get in the game for one reason or another, you're still provided with a way to play as a character you really wanted to get in, like [[DonkeyKongCountry King K. Rool]] or [[FireEmblemAwakening Chrom.]] The characters might not have made it in, but it's clear Nintendo is trying to give us the next best thing.

* Cloud's last two variants of his ''Advent Children'' costume remove his left sleeve to reveal a ribbon tied around his arm, worn in honor of his late friend Aerith. It just shows that Cloud is a lot more thoughtful than he lets on; even in Smash, he's thinking about his friends, alive or dead.

His final SOLDIER outfit gives another bit: his clothes take the coloration of another fallen friend of his and the previous owner of the Buster Sword, Zack Fair.

* Simply put, [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Roy]] isn't coming back. He didn't for this one and he probably won't for the next. That said, Nintendo is making it clear they haven't forgotten about him; Marth has a costume alt that looks like Roy's ''Melee'' garb. It seems his old ''Fire Emblem'' friend hasn't forgotten about him either.
