* In his "1st Impressions of Black Lightning" video, he reveals that he sold his beloved ''{{Film/Blade}}'' replica sword to a fan named Tanner to raise funds for the show. However, Tanner gave him the money and told him to just keep the sword. When ERod asked if there was anything he could send to show his gratitude, Tanner just said "Keep doing what you do."

* Just how {{adorakable}} and excited he gets when UsefulNotes/BuzzAldrin shows up in ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon''. He even starts talking with pride about how Creator/PeterCullen said his scene with Buzz Aldrin was the proudest moments in his career... Only to be interrupted by another scene change.

* The funeral montage he holds for Optimus Prime in the Transformers 2 review counts, showing the true love a fan can have for a character. You get a real sense that [=ERod=] really respects and likes Optimus, and is genuinely sad at his death. Somehow manages to also work as a Tearjerker and a CMOA too.

* In Cars 2 you can also take the bit where [=ERod=] gets overly excited by the fact that Creator/BruceCampbell, one of his idols, is playing a character named "ROD". He also compares this with the best day of his life: a photo of him in Disneyland with Donald Duck. As a meta-comment about that: That was his Honeymoon trip. How adorable is that?

** Shortly after, Rob Paulsen and Tara Strong tweeted the video, and Rob Paulsen wrote directly an email. Immediately [=ERod=] uploaded the video responses.
* In his review of the Speed Racer movie, he admits that he is not a fan of the cartoon but to get a fair perspective, he talked to a fan- his dad. And how does he introduce his father? By showing a snapshot of the man during a race or marathon and an awesome Spanish guitar riff.
* In his review of Breaking Dawn part 1, he doesn't show the birthing scene that gave people seizures because he doesn't want to hurt any members of his audience.

* In his Honest Review of Darkwing Duck, he mentions that one traits he admires most about Darkwing is that he is a devoted and loving father. He has a soft-spot of good parents or at least ones who will always protect their kids.
* In his Casting Couch episode for his fellow TGWTG producers, when the time comes to cast Obscurus Lupa Nerdlinger (who has a crush on her that rivals Todd's) pops up. [=ERod=] cuts him off though, and tells him that Lupa has a boyfriend and that they should respect that.

* Doug Jones' cameo for [=ERod=]'s review of Rocky and Bullwinkle.
** Not only Doug Jones doing a cameo is awesome and adorable when Doug recognized [=ERod=]'s appreciation for his filmography, [=ERod=] also highlighted Jones' participation in ''Rock Jocks'', which was directed by Paul (Panda Bear / Dr. Nemesis), his best friend.
* [=ERod=]'s reaction to the last Shrek movie at the end of his ''WesternAnimation/ShrekTheThird'' review.
** To elaborate, [=ERod=] reveals that he avoided ''WesternAnimation/ShrekForeverAfter'' due to how much he hated the third film. As such, he decided to check it out as SnarkBait. While he wasn't impressed at first, he started to warm up to it, and by the end, he outright called it "pretty good", regretting that "[his] blind rage against one movie made [him] turn [his] back on a pretty decent one".

* The ending of the Linkara crossover where they review the Adam West Batman movie. Dr. Linksano and Nerdlinger are displeased that they didn't get a cameo in the review despite [=ERod=] and Linkara's other characters getting one, so Dr. Linksano asks Nerdlinger if he wants to go do some science with him instead. Nerdlinger's excited hug and exclamation of "excelsior!" are pretty cute after seeing the little guy looking so downtrodden just a few seconds earlier.

* In his Honest Review of ''Film/IronMan3'', even thought he loved the movie and defended it from the biggest {{Base Breaker}}s, he assured that he didn't plan to give it a perfect score. Why? Not because of the Base Breakers, but because he felt the movie overdid with the StuffedIntoTheFridge trope by [[spoiler: killing two of Tony's love interests just to motivate him and also reviving Pepper, rendering her death scene pointless]]. Doubles also as an Awesome Moment as well.
