Heartwarming / How It Should Have Ended

  • How It Show Have Ended's "THANK YOU" video. After a long time, they took the time to make a compilation for many videos just to say thanks for watching.
  • The fact that the Mass Effect 3 video doesn't decide to rag on about the ending of the game, but instead provides something beyond telling the Starchild to piss off. It also doubles as a Moment of Awesome as it manages to combine aspects of all the multiple endings into a good ending.
  • Batman and Superman comforting Spider-Man, claiming that despite the flaws of The Amazing Spider-Man, it could've been a lot worse (especially compared to Spider-Man 3).
  • After snipping at each other, Superman and Batman prove their friendship:
    Superman: [mimicking poorly] Oh, I'm Bruce Wayne and I like you. Let me tell you my big secret.
    Batman: Oh, you're one to talk. Mr. Mind Eraser.
    Superman: Oh, don't even — I will freeze breath your face off!
    Batman: No, you won't.
    Superman: You're right, I won't. I love this guy. Up top!
    [they high five]
  • In the the Bonus scene for The Amazing Spider-Man, Spidey is able to refute Lizard's heckling of "You're all alone," by stating that despite the loss of his parents and uncle, he still has Aunt May, Gwen, is on way to becoming friends with Flash, and even has a future in science. Nice to see Peter being positive and appreciating with what he has. And then Captain Stacy shows up toting his shotgun, announces that Peter is not alone, and promptly shoots the Lizard in the face, just like in the movie!
  • In the HISHE's take on Toy Story 3, it starts in the dumpster scene, after Lotso has finished ranting that trash is all that toys are and ever will be. Like in the movie, Woody instantly rebuffs this claim by pointing out that Daisy never abandoned Lotso...but then his speech changes from the original midway. Instead of pointing out that Lotso simply doesn't want anyone else to be happy if he can't be, Woody then explains that it was Daisy's parents who abandoned and replaced Lotso, not Daisy...and they replaced Lotso precisely because Daisy loved Lotso that much! Lotso pauses to let this sink in...and then reforms right on the spot, realizing that this means he's been angry all this time for nothing! Of course, being HISHE, it then switches to comedy as Rex chimes in that really it should be Lotso's subordinates who have a right to be angry, since they didn't get replaced at all! Cue Big Baby screaming.
  • In How The Empire Strikes Back Should Have Ended, when Palpatine reveals that Luke is "the offspring of Anakin Skywalker", Vader's reaction is pure joy. He runs around jubilantly telling everyone on the Death Star (including things with no ears or consciousness) that he's a father. Leads into Mood Whiplash when it turns out Luke isn't so happy about this, but Vader is just happy to finally meet him. Awww.
  • In their variant of Return of the Jedi, when Vader discovers that Padme had twins, he is overjoyed and once again runs around in excitement, proclaiming how happy he is and announcing that . Of course, it's Played for Laughs...but it's still sweet.
    • Runs into Crowning Moment of Awesome AND Heartwarming territory when Vader realizes Palpatine lied to him about Padme's death and proceeds to murder him.
  • In How Doomsday Should Have Ended, the Doctor gets to tell Rose that he loves her. He immediately goes on to explain how it can't work, but the moment is sweet nonetheless.
  • In How Frozen Should Have Ended, Grand Pabbie calls out Elsa and Anna's parents for their plans to keep Elsa locked up for years until she learns to control her powers, and provides a different solution: Charles Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. The smile on young Elsa's face when Professor X greets her is uplifting. But it doesn't end there: after the credits, we see that many years later, Elsa is all grown up, glove-free, and happily singing "Let It Go" alongside Storm, Rogue, and Nightcrawler; then, when Wolverine enters the room to an awkward silence, he finishes the song with a (reluctant) Iceman, and everyone cheers. Even Anna and Olaf are there!
  • Their video on the SDCC trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has Batman and Superman staring each other down...right before they burst into laughter and go get coffee.
  • The entire ending for How The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Should Have Ended, with Electro getting a gig as a dubstep artist, his album going platinum, and all the baddies at Villain Pub throwing him a birthday party; Harry finding a cure, Super-Man rewinding time to save Gwen Stacy, Gwen and Peter moving to London together, and Spider-Man being included in the Avengers because Disney and Sony worked out a deal. As the video says, "and everything turned out fine." And in fact, the last part about Spider-Man being included in the Avengers because Disney and Sony worked out a deal, ends up becoming Heartwarming in Hindsight, because on Febuary 9, 2015, months after the HISHE parody, Sony DID work out a deal between themselves and Disney and Marvel Studios, which allows Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a 2016 MCU film before his next standalone film the next year.
  • The HISHE video for How to Train Your Dragon 2 has Stoick Spared by the Adaptation. And the good Bewilderbeast too.
  • In the Days of Future Past video, Logan takes a tip from Batman and has Kitty Pryde send him back to 1963, when Xavier and Erik first met him. Instead of rudely brushing them off, as seen in First Class, Logan proceeds to warn them about several dangers they'll encounter, starting with Erik paralyzing Xavier. A cut to the altered present shows that Logan successfully Set Right What Once Went Wrong, as an older Xavier walks past the Super Cafe and proudly exclaims to Superman and Batman, "Just outside enjoying my legs!"
  • The HISHE video for "Revenge of the Sith" ends with Anakin retelling to little kid versions of Luke and Leia about how after Palpatine's death the senate elected a new chancellor, the clones got new jobs, and all of the Jedi lived. Padmé also survives child birth too and they all live as a family on Naboo.
    Anakin (Not as Darth Vader): I have a family!
  • The video for Harry Potter. Severus Snape survived because he took Honey Badger Anti-Venom. He then goes back in time in order to kill Voldemort and retroactively saves everyone.
  • By the end of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice video, Batman and Superman have finally made peace and get to be genuine friends again after a few years of increasing antagonism in the lead up to BvS.
  • In the video for Captain America: Civil War, Bucky apologizes to Tony for killing his parents while he was Brainwashed and Crazy as the Winter Soldier. Tony accepts the apology and decides to break into the room that Zemo is in to arrest him. However, there is some excellent Mood Whiplash when Zemo complains about his plans being foiled.
  • Suicide Squad:
    • The Squad just shoots Amanda Waller, freeing themselves from the government's control. Also, El Diablo lives.
    • After mocking the forced camaraderie the Squad goes through in just one day, they end up deciding that they could still comfortably be called friends, with family a possibility for the future.
  • In Rogue One Everybody Lives. The darkest chapter of the franchise is actually able to end on a note of complete optimism.
  • For How Beauty and the Beast Should Have Ended, when Belle tells the Beast that she misses her father, instead of giving her the magical mirror, he suggests that Maurice come live with them in the castle as his guests rather than prisoners. Belle is so touched by his suggestion that she hugs him and proclaims her love for him.
  • Logan
    • The video is mostly a single long bit reenacting Valjean's death from Les MisÚrables (as an Actor Allusion to that Hugh Jackman played Valjean in the 2012 film version), made as a loving tribute to Jackman's performance as Wolverine. One verse says it all:
      "And remember
      That Hugh Jackman is Logan!
      To cast another person now
      is simply a
      lost cause"
    • The fact that Deadpool went back in time by using the DeLorean simply to save Wolverine is heartwarming, especially since he seemed he did it just so that they could hang out together.
  • During Wonder Woman, Steve lives. Both times. The first time, he jumps out of the exploding plane with a parachute, screaming in exhilaration. The second time, Wonder Woman refuses to let Steve go when he makes his Famous Last Words because she can't hear him. Then she goes to take care of the plane, saves his life, and kick's Ares's butt offscreen.
  • After Wonder Woman tells her story, Supergirl and Batgirl don't care about picking it apart like the men always do, and are just happy to shoot the breeze.
    • The sheer fact that they're having a pleasant conversation at all is pretty refreshing. Also Supergirl and Batgirl tell Diana how much they admire her.
  • The Last Jedi
    • Anakin meets Kylo Ren, finally getting to meet a family member who's equally as excited to see him.
    • Rey's adorable little squee when she finds out Obi-Wan is her grandfather, and Anakin happily celebrating with her.
  • "Villain Pub- The Dead Pool"
    • In a meta way, Whiplash and Abomination being at the pub despite their respective films not getting the HISHE treatment. It really shows that the HISHE team acknowledges those films in some form.
