* This exchange, which is [[spoiler:repeated as an audio flashback at the end of the film when Tod and Copper are torn their separate ways, but know they will always be friends at heart.]]
-->'''Tod:''' Copper, you're my very best friend.\\
'''Copper:''' And you're mine, too, Tod.\\
'''Tod:''' And we'll always be friends forever, won't we?\\
'''Copper:''' Yeah, forever...
* Tod and Vixey's FallingInLoveMontage.
* After the fight with the bear, it seems that Amos Slade will become an UngratefulBastard and blast the wounded Tod away. However, Copper, who earlier tried to kill Tod, stands up for Tod and pleads to Slade to be reasonable. This causes Slade to [[HeelRealization realize what he's about to do, and after he spends a moment feeling shameful about himself]], he spares Tod's life.
* Squeaks [[spoiler:turning into a butterfly]] at the end, and Dinky and Boomer deciding to let him go. Also very symbolic of the larger plot where the hunters and prey reconcile.
* As...''misplaced'' as the midquel might be, it does have a very beautiful, subtle moment between Amos Slade and Tweed. With Tod and Copper having run off to the fair, the two comb the forest in the middle of the night, looking for their pets. They meet over a fence and, after a bout of their usual bickering, Tweed says she'll keep an eye out for Copper. And despite his hatred of Tod, Slade promises to do the same for "that fox of yours".
* During the fight with the [[spoiler:bear]] when Amos Slade realizes just how outmatched Copper is and that all he can hope to do is aggravate and distract the [[spoiler:bear]], he abandons his attempts to escape the [[spoiler:trap]] and instead tries to reach his gun. While subtle, it sort of highlights just how much he cares for Copper.
* Copper and Chief's bonding.
* Copper tracks down and mercilessly hunts Tod and his mate, looking like he won't hesitate for a ''second'' to kill him should he get a hold of him, yet when Tod witnesses Copper about to be killed by a bear, he simply can't let it happen and rushes in to save his former best friend. The look of absolute amazement on Copper's face right as he stares at the exhausted fox who had just saved him despite everything that had happened really sells it.
* Pretty much every interaction between Copper and Tod when they were young is completely adorable. Unfortunately that just makes it all the more tragic when they have to go their separate ways.
