* A meta-example: the late, great Creator/RobinWilliams was an avid player of [=WoW=], and after his passing, fans petitioned to have an NPC based on him included in the game. The developers heeded the players' wishes and introduced a new NPC for the new expansion, [[Film/{{Aladdin}} a genie]] named "Robin the Entertainer".

* If you complete Uuna's scenario, "A Dark Place", congratulations. You have freed the soul of an innocent draenei child and gained a friend who will give you hugs and react to your surroundings. May double as a TearJerker while you'll be doing the scenario.

* In an odd sense, the relationship between the Horde player and Nathanos Blightcaller over the course of his questline. Originally disdainful of you and constantly belittling you by calling you an imbecile and a fool, you eventually earn genuine respect from him through your actions, which include the death and decapitation of Ramstein the Gorder, the abomination that killed him, and the masterful way you assassinate the Scarlet Oracle Demetria.

* During one of the storylines in Azsuna, you find a Wretched NPC named Runas the Shamed, who was banished from the Nightborne and thus wracked with the same mana addiction as the rest. The Blue Dragon Elder Senegos is very mistrustful of him, and warns you to keep an eye on him. Yet through it all, addiction aside, Runas certainly insists that he wants to help...right up till [[spoiler:the very end, where [[SubvertedTrope his last act]] [[GoodAllAlong is to warn you]] about the resident leader of the Nightborne, Ael'Yith, and his plan to attack Senegos.]] One sentence, in particular, stands out:
-->'''Runas the Shamed''': [[spoiler:This hunger is consuming my very mind. It is taking every ounce of my energy to just...just...can you hear me, my friend? I...I cannot see you anymore. I think...[[EmptyShell perhaps it is time to say goodbye, then]]. [[TearJerker Thank you, my friend, for letting my last hours mean something]].]]
** Of special note is that [[spoiler: the ensuing zombie-like husk remains friendly afterwards...as if whatever little remains of Runas the Shamed doesn't want to hurt anyone any more.]]

*** Genn's smile toward Anduin when he and the rest of the army are healed and Anduin rallying the troops. That is a smile of pride, especially heartwarming considering how he showed doubt to Anduin's leadership during Legion.

* In a Death Knight quest, we are going to form a new "Four Horseman" group. You know who one of the first horsemen are? [[spoiler: [[EnsembleDarkHorse Nazgrim.]] And there isn't any Fridge Horror, either - he is the type of Orc that would gladly become a Death Knight if it means to sink his axe into the deserving again.]]

* Partway through the Highmountain questline while following Huln Highmountain's past, you learn a truth about Spiritwalker Ebonhorn. [[spoiler: He is an uncorrupted black dragon actually called Ebyssian that was rescued by using the Hammer of Khaz'gorath to purify his egg. In thanks, Ebonhorn has been watching over Huln's descendants all this time.]]

* In Suramar City, there's the occasional Nightborne that's clearly starving. Players have the option to give said elves a bit of ancient mana in return for a 10% health buff. The name of the buff? Empathy.

* From the Antorus cinematic, a moment without words.
