** [[spoiler:When Duke Fabre and Susannah accept Luke as their son too, and not just as a clone of their son, despite his frequent arguments that Asch is superior to him in every way]]
*** Related to that: [[spoiler:when Luke tricks Asch into reuniting with his parents after seven years, and they treat him exactly as you would a long-lost son. Quite possibly one of the few times you feel Asch is happy, despite himself]].
** [[spoiler:"You're the only Ion that matters to me" and "Replica or whatever, you're real to me."]]
** Pretty much Guy's loyalty in general. Him going back for Luke, and numerous conversations, including: "But I . . . I want you to stay alive, no matter what anyone else says." And "Even if the rest of the world abandoned you, I'd still be here, by your side."

** [[spoiler:If you think that Luke is the one that returns at the end of the game, then it's heartwarming to see Tear cry out of joy that Luke kept his promise.]]

** Jade coming out of his shell a little and admitting that he considers Luke a friend while in Daath. Tears were shed.
*** And just after the final battle: [[spoiler:When he shakes Luke's hand, as his friend]]

** Related to that, Peony is always friendly and nice to the group. But ''especially'' Luke, who he at one point offers to let him stay in Grand Chokmah so he will feel better and safe in regards to [[spoiler: being a replica]]. Peony's nature of being very socially adept and sharp eyed in regards to the nature of people (which is why he can one up Jade) means he definitely picks up on Luke's [[HeroicSelfDeprecation issues]]. In the ''Reminiscences of Jade'' he has a ''very'' touching moment of comfort for Luke [[http://kissmanga.com/Manga/Tale-of-the-Abyss-Reminiscences-of-Jade/Tale-of-the-Abyss--Reminiscences-of-Jade-2?id=51768#30 here]].

Added DiffLines:

** Luke leaping to Jade's defence holds some FridgeBrilliance to it as well: the ''last'' time someone was responsible for such a horrible act was [[spoiler: Luke himself, in regards to Akzeriuth]] and everyone got on his case, berating and pinning the blame entirely on him. Luke is thinking of that and immediately doesn't want that to happen to Jade. From how Jade reacts, it suggests he ''knows'' that is why in part Luke is doing that. Double the heartwarming with that in mind.

** The party forgiving Anise, possibly because all of them realised what a lot of players don't- Anise actively tried to make them hate her long before [[spoiler: revealing herself as a spy]], as Anise is the coldest and harshest to all traitors of everyone in the party. She's the one who takes the longest to forgive Luke and is by far the coldest to him, the one who speaks out against trusting Spinoza and still thinks its stupid to trust him, she's the one who voices distrust in Guy when Guy reveals he worked with Van for years up until [[spoiler: Akzeriuth's massacre]]... the fact that they forgive Anise when she doesn't think she deserves it is incredibly sweet.

* It's not made a big deal out of, but Peony and Jade's [[HeterosexualLifePartners relationship]] is weirdly nice.

** The version in the manga spinoff ''Reminiscences of Jade'' is arguably more heartwarming considering the events there. Just [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-0bVOaOP_hzM/UaC6V6cHb3I/AAAAAAAAaEc/PaOXFSeVDYw/s0/023.png this]] page is enough for much gushy feels.

Added DiffLines:

* Related to the above, Luke actually ''panics'' when he hears his mother is sick and, though he's awkward about it, it's made clear he is genuinely concerned about her. His mother also shows how much she cares for him as well, doting on him. Luke then follows up by awkwardly comforting Tear; telling her that his mother is an IllGirl so she need not blame herself for Susanne's condition.

Added DiffLines:

* It's a small thing, but in the manga the maids are [[http://www.mangareader.net/tales-of-the-abyss/10/16 genuinely]] happy and relieved to have Luke return, checking that he's okay. Aside from that scene itself being nice, it also implies that Luke most likely did a lot of PetTheDog moments towards them for the maids to react like that.

** In fact, even if you find Mieu [[SmallAnnoyingCreature annoying]] there is something ''very'' touching about his unbreakable faith in Luke. Maybe he's stupid or naive to hold on to believing in Luke despite the amount of time Luke spends [[KickTheDog kicking]] him, but he does. The only one who matches him in faith is ''Ion''. Best of all? He's '''[[TheCloudCuckooLanderWasRight right]]''' to believe in [[AllLovingHero Luke]].
