!! Other Heartwarming Moments
* There's something very oddly heartwarming about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lPp_J0CRg0 Metal Sonic's reawakening]]. It might just be the music, but ''wow''.
** It also doubles as a HeartwarmingMoment for EGGMAN of all people! For the longest time, Metal Sonic's reapperance was a mystery, with Metal Sonic implying in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' that he himself was the one who's responsible for it. Episode Metal showed that to be wrong. Eggman reached through time and space to rescue Metal Sonic from [[VideoGame/SonicCD Stardust Speedway]] and bring him back. As soon as Metal Sonic got back to his base, he completely repaired Metal Sonic and happily sent the robot off to do his own thing in his quest to defeat Sonic, giving him weapons, tools and even a personal escort at times to assist him. It makes the TheDogBitesBack moment in ''Sonic Heroes'' rather heartbreaking in retrospect. After all the care and attention Eggman lavished on his creation, he ends up being one of it's victims, relying on [[VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix a group of people who he was once fighting against with the very same robot on his side]] to rescue him.
* The ending of ''[[VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy Sonic Advance 3]]'', [[spoiler:which involves [[VideoGame/SonicBattle Emerl]].]]
* What, no mention of Sonic's interactions with Blaze? In any of the games they've been in?
** Their interactions are more than heartwarming. Especially the ending to the first ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush]]'', where Super Sonic and Burning Blaze say their goodbyes and actually make friendly physical contact for the first time.. by HoldingHands as their dimensions are being torn apart. How is that not sweet? With or without ShippingGoggles?
* Knuckles' re-imagined HeelFaceTurn in ''VideoGame/SonicTripleTrouble''. After spending most of the game tormenting and hindering Sonic after being duped by Eggman, the hedgehog finally defeats the doctor and comes across Knuckles, double crossed and placed in a cell. He wastes no time breaking him out and holds out his hand to offer a truce. After some reluctance, Knuckles shakes and the two exit the scene, departing their own ways.
* The Good Ending to the 8 bit version of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' (especially since [[NintendoHard if you got that far,]] [[EarnYourHappyEnding you damn well earned it]]), with Sonic finally freeing Tails and zooming back home with his buddy closely following. The extremely cheerful theme playing for the Game Gear version only furthers it.
