* The five bloody fingers [[JoinOrDie "renewing their blood oath"]] is a peculiar mixture of heartwarming, TearJerker and NightmareFuel.
** Also, it's shown in the climax of Five Bloody Fingers that Yamada really does love his daughter....despite being a massively cruel asshole to nearly everyone else.
** The mere fact that there is a group of characters who are basically Zombie Apocalypse Survivor!versions of the Big Hero 6 that can still exist in this universe is pretty heartwarming in itself.
* There are several moments hidden through the series that aren't just HopeSpots but genuine litte statements. This trope found the panel of the wolves at the end of chapter 5 to be one of the most touching panels in comic book history.
* Cindy's revealed 'origin'. Characters spend the series wondering how she came to be so determined, knowledgeable and fierce about surviving and protecting herself and her son, even making up fancy backstories ('She's a green beret!'). The truth is far less cliché and a lot more thoughful.
* Shaky and Sofia together watching the aurora borealis, right before [[spoiler: the latter's suicide]].
