** The GoldenEnding credits tells you what happened to each of the monsters you encountered after the game. The bosses all get short cutscenes, but the random enemies just get short blurbs, which can either be white or yellow. Yellow blurbs have different text and indicate that the monster's life has been more fulfilling because of some action you took when you encountered them. Getting every single yellow blurb is something of a GuideDangIt, but it's ''incredibly'' rewarding to know that the monsters are all leading happy, fulfilling lives because of your actions.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} 4]]'' have this in the form of [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 Social Links]], each modeled after [[TarotMotifs a particular tarot card]].

* Pikachu in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon Yellow Version]]''. This version introduced the happiness mechanic, but ''only'' for Pikachu- you could look at it and see how it liked you. So you wanted to keep it happy by using it in battle but not letting it faint, not keeping it locked up in the PC, etc. (Or you could just [[GoodBadBugs repeatedly use the Potion from your PC on it at full health and get it to love you in two minutes flat.]])

** Nicknaming your Pokémon will inevitably lead to you caring about them. And getting pissed at enemies who KO your little Pichu. [[DisproportionateRetribution And then you bust out your Level 100 Charizard and barbecue the NPC's team of Grass-types.]]

** Nicknaming your Pokémon will inevitably lead to you caring about them. And getting pissed at enemies who KO K.O. your little Pichu. [[DisproportionateRetribution And then you bust out your Level 100 Charizard and barbecue the NPC's team of Grass-types.]]



** Forging a deeper connection with your Pokémon is pretty much the whole point of a [[NuzlockeComics Nuzlocke]] [[SelfImposedChallenge Challenge run.]] If a Pokémon faints, it is "dead" and [[KilledOffForReal can never be used again,]] the number of Pokémon you can catch is also limited, which makes you use species that would've been overlooked otherwise, and you also have to name every one you catch. When done right, every lost party member [[PlayerPunch feels like a punch in the gut.]]
*** [[http://pettynuzlockelg.smackjeeves.com Petty]], an author of a Nuzlocke comic, just knows how to pull at your heartstrings every time she has a friend die.
** Something completely unrelated to the Pokémon themselves, however, is an optional side-quest in ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' and its remake, ''Platinum''. In it, there is a cave beneath Cycling Road named Wayward Cave, which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. In the furthest point of the cave is a young girl named Mira, whose sprite looks to be about half the height of your character's. She has a lone Kadabra without Teleport, Dig, Rock Smash (required to get through the cave), or Flash. She begs you to escort her out, [[ButThouMust which your character does without your input]] (you'd have to have a heart of ice to refuse, though). What really makes this an example is that Mira really doesn't give you much of a reward for saving her, other than you being able to rebattle her in the Battleground or team up with her in the Battle Tower later, neither of which are very significant in themselves. Saving her is completely optional, too. FridgeHorror kicks in when you think about the real-life implications of being stuck in a dark cave with literally no way of escape, and exactly how terrifying it would be to a little girl.
** Pokémon-Amie in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' was made with this in mind, allowing you to interact with your Pokémon by petting them, feeding them cake, playing games with them, and making faces at them (which they'll try to imitate), among other things. A Pokemon that's become fond of you through this will also gain numerous benefits in battle, along with the battle text being changed to emphasize the bond they share with you.
*** One of the benefits to a Pokemon with maxed out affection is that sometimes it will tank a hit that would otherwise knock it out, only to say that it "hung on out of love for its trainer."
** Metagame example: The internet interaction, also for ''X and Y''. For Wonder Trade, send over a rare Pokémon, or, any Pokémon with perfect [=IV=]s, Egg Moves, and/or Pokérus. For O-Power, send your highest O-Power. For the Global Trade Station, offer a rare Pokémon for something more common.
** There's a small example in the Hoenn remakes; on an early route, you'll encounter an NPC who complains that his Pokémon is really tired and he should have brought a potion. The NPC was also in the originals, but this time around, if you have a potion, the game will allow you to give it to him. You don't get a reward for doing this, other than the NPC thanking you, but it is a nice little touch.

* ''VideoGame/Metal Gear Solid V'': Quiet is a buddy you can obtain a short way into the game. A very effective scout sniper, She is invaluable ingame. In addition, she has face and motion capture, as well as the likeness of Stefanie Joosten, making Quiet extremely lifelike and easy to bond to. This is only increased by the fact that even though she never talks, as you raise your bond level with her, she beings to act more and more fondly towards Snake, eventually becoming coquettish and then outright flirtatious with him, as well as her cute hum in the background in missions as a constant reminder that she is watching out for you. However, near the end of the game we discover she is infected with the English strain of vocal cord parasites, and after she is forced to speak English in order to rescue Snake, she walks off into the desert to die to avoid infecting Snake and Mother Base. This caused such an uproar in the community that an extra mission was added where after 7 completions of the original mission where you meet Quiet, the player can complete the full story of the game and still be able to get her back and keep her as a buddy for good.

* The HGame VisualNovel ''Life with a Slave: Teaching Feeling'' is literally "VideogameCaringPotential: The Game". You play as a small city doctor who one day is visited by a wandering merchant whose life you had once saved who has come to repay his debt to you. He entrusts you with a [[TheWoobie small, horrifically abused former slave girl]] called Sylvie whose former master (now deceased) used to torture her daily for fun, leaving her with grotesque acid burns all over her body. The entire focus of the game is caring for her, repairing her damaged psyche with kindness, compassion and [[MemeticMutation head pats]] and, as the name suggests, teaching her to feel again, until she learns to be happy, hopeful and eventually fall in love with you. It's in fact ''mandatory'' to treat her this way as, although you start out being given options to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential treat her poorly, or even rape her right off the bat]], these are all traps as treating her in any way other than pure kindness will lead to her unavoidably [[IncurableCoughOfDeath catching a cold]] [[DownerEnding and dying]][[note]]This can lead to the almost laughably tragic scenario where she dies because you bought her sandwiches for lunch when you took her to the restaurant rather than pancakes[[/note]]. It's also worth noting that, although the game is a [[HGame hardcore eroge]] with a big emphasis on sexual content (once you reach the stage where she's both willing and able to freely consent to it), there are several people who have reportedly played it by actually rejecting her advances, skipping ''all'' the sexual content, getting Sylvie to call them "Daddy" and raising her as their ''daughter,'' because she's just ''that'' {{Moe}} (later versions have [[AscendedMeme even acknowledged this]], as when you get to the stage where you can choose to choose something else for Sylvie to call you something other than "Master", if you put in something like "Daddy" or "Papa" she'll wonder aloud whether this means you think of her as being like a daughter).

* A new gameplay feature that was added in ''VideoGame/WatchDogs2'' took the ATM hacking this way. The original purpose as used by [[VideoGame/WatchDogs Aiden]] was to siphon money from bank accounts without people knowing. Marcus, however, has the option to do the opposite, ''giving'' money to NPCs he sees in the city. And just like the original, there's no repercussion or acknowledgement for doing so.
