Heartwarming: Honest Trailers
- Any trailer where at least one of the quotes read in the Every Episode Ending are of an actor or entertainer who recently passed away:
[Starring...] Egon, but not forgotten.
- In honor of the late Robin Williams, the phrases read by the narrator at the end of the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier were all iconic phrases from Williams' movies.
- The next week (Ghostbusters) one of the phrases read at the end was "It's Saturday Night Live!" in honor of that show's late announcer Don Pardo.
- Also from the Ghostbusters video was their description of Egon, being played by the then-recently deceased Harold Ramis.
- And at the end of the next Honest Trailer (CinemaSins' The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer notwithstanding), for Godzilla (2014), one of the phrases at the end of that trailer was "Welcome... to Jurassic Park!" in memory of Richard Attenborough, who played the park's creator John Hammond in the film.
- At the end of the trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, released four days after Leonard Nimoy's passing, every quote read at the end was a Spock quote (or a quote about Spock) in honor of Nimoy's most iconic character.
- The Toy Story trailer, released several days after Christopher Lee's passing, had all the quotes read by Epic Voice Guy at the end be quotes from Lee's films.
- The Street Fighter trailer honored Satoru Iwata by reading out his keynote from GDC 2005: "On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer."
- The first two quotes at the end of the Fantastic Four (2005) trailer were in honor of Roddy Piper, who had died several days before. Notably, one of them was the famous Chew Bubblegum quote from They Live!, which had been butchered as "chem bubblegum" in a previous trailer.
- Wes Craven was honored at the end of the Honest Trailer for The Happening by having all of the quotes at the end relate to his films.
- In the Honest Trailer for The Lion King, there are comparisons drawn between that movie and Frozen. The punchline to this?
Narrator: [about Frozen] I knew there was a reason I liked that movie!
- In a similar vein, the narrator says that The LEGO Movie being Merchandise-Driven isn't inherently negative or hurts the film (it's just inevitable), and feels that he wants to buy some Legos after doing the trailer.
- The Furious 7 trailer compliments the, surprisingly, very heartfelt and tasteful way the film handled the death of Paul Walker and said goodbye to his character.
Narrator: Wow, I honestly never expected a Fast & Furious movie to make me cry. That was really well done. [refering to the transition to the "Starring" list] So... this is an awkward transition...
- The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer references Joss Whedon's Creator Breakdown over the film, and sympathyses with him.
Narrator: [Joss Whedon] does his best to meet unrealistic nerd expectations [...] and fit in Disney's corporate cross-promotion, in a juggling act so insanely difficult, he turned down the sequel, quit Twitter, and doesn't have any new films in development. Oh, um, guys? I think we just broke Joss Whedon. He needs a hug.
