* Many of the Ikari team's endings qualify with their defrosting of Leona.
** Specially in ''97'', where she cries [[spoiler: after hearing her father's voice kindly speaking to her in her heart]], then sees Ralf and Clark's silly antic to make her smile... [[WhenSheSmiles and she does so.]]
* Despite how annoying Rose can be, the scene in ''XIII'' when [[spoiler: she's released from Botan's BrainWashing]] and [[FallingIntoHisArms falls in the distressed Adel's arms]] is oddly sweet. Specially due to this quote:
--> "[[BigBrotherInstinct To protect Rose as her brother that is his role.]] It would never change, come hell and high water... In the end [[spoiler: his memory was completely gone]], but a strong sense of fulfillment remained. [[DeclarationOfProtection Adelheid succeeded in protecting Rose"]]
-->'''Rose''': "W-what have I...?"
-->'''Adel''': "It was a bad dream, Rose. I'm here now"
* The 97's endings of [[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/neogeo/b/kof97psy.htm The Psycho Soldier Team]] and [[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/neogeo/b/kof97fem.htm The Women's Team]] are both so, so cute. Specially when [[spoiler: Athena teleports to help IllGirl Kaoru when she tries to walk and falls off her wheelchair]] and when [[spoiler: Chizuru hears her dead sister Maki's voice in her mind, telling her to be happy.]] (The second might be HarsherInHindsight, tho, considering what happens to [[spoiler: Chizuru and Maki]] in ''2003''.)
* The Fatal Fury Team's [[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/neogeo/b/kof2kfata.htm 2000 ending]]. [[spoiler: Terry has apparently died after the last fight and the destruction of Sotuh Town, and Mary narrates what has been going on in a rather melancholic tone. At the end, however, she steps in a warehouse where she's supposed to find some burglars, they're already beaten up... and the one who did it was Terry, who stands in the doorway and smiles.]]
* Even if they're non-canonical, Kula's ''Sky Stage'' endings are rather sweet. Specially her [[http://youtu.be/vBiV9sXNnn4 solo end]] and the ones she shares with [[http://youtu.be/nJIASXzxKQU Kyo]] and [[http://youtu.be/ZAVYGbg1YSc Athena]].
