Heartwarming / Jackie Chan Adventures

  • First series, episode nine, has Jackie poisoned with a toxin that's going to slowly petrify him, unless he offers to exchange the Talismans for the antidote — he refuses to consider it. Jade is not so accepting, and they end up sitting in a park after dark with her begging him to make the deal. The phrase "I don't want a boulder for an uncle!" was a lot more heartwarming than it honestly has any right to be.
    • When her plea fails, she breaks into Section Thirteen to steal the Talismans and goes to make the deal herself.
    • When they're not driving each other to distraction (which is most of the time), the Chan family in general tend to pull out a good few CMOH.
    • Any time Uncle shows a member of his family or Tohru affection, showing that he's not just a grumpy old geezer and genuinely cares about them. Like the episode when Uncle gets the Dog Talisman. "Jackie, thank you for allowing me to re-experience my youth."
  • Several of Jade's exchanges with Tohru post season one are surprisingly sweet considering there was a point not too long ago when he would've quite happily cut her open to get a Talisman out of her. By the time the third season rolls around anyone who even thinks about hurting Jade in his presence had better watch out.
    • A particularly sweet example comes from "Demon in Di-Skies", the (in)famous episode where Hsi Wu disguises himself as a boy Jade's age to get his enchanted tail back from Uncle. Jade is implied to have a childish crush on him, and feels upset when the truth is revealed. Lamenting to Tohru that it was nice having someone around who listened to her, she realizes Tohru already fits the bill and gives him half of her Yin Yang necklace.
    Jade: (to Tohru) Yin and yang. Big and small. You and me.
  • Jackie's reaction to Captain Black's hospitalization at the hands of Valmont and the Dragon talisman is part this, and part scary.
  • During the "Demon World" two parter, Jackie grows despondent after losing the Ox talisman. Thinking that unlike the rest of the J-Team, he is useless without Super Strength (this due to the fact that this universe's Jackie never learned martial arts). Jade gives him a pep talk about how he never even liked using the talismans before the change in the timeline. She also tells him that he was a great warrior and can be one again, with a little retraining.
    Jade: I can teach you what you taught me. Now, the breath flows through the body, down to the toes...
  • After El Toro is cursed to become the next Chupachabra, they're forced to leave him tied up in a cave while they head off to find the cure. Paco takes a moment to look back at him, and El Toro smiles.
  • In one of the later episodes, it's revealed that Jade not only becomes head of Section 13 later on, but is also extremely skilled in both martial arts and chi magic. When Jackie asks her at the end of the episode how she turned out so well, she simply looks at him and says "You, duh."
  • When Paco turns evil due to the Oni Mask, El Toro tells him to remove the mask, which gets through to the real Paco. Paco says wrestlers can't remove their own masks. El Toro, who always boasts that he never removes his mask, takes off his own so that Paco will remove his.
  • The final episode contains one. Drago is getting sucked into the portal back to the Demon World, and pleads for help from Shendu. Upon which the Big Bad of the franchise, the evil demon sorcerer who has betrayed everyone who worked with him for the past 5 seasons and had been betrayed (and pummelled) himself by the very person begging for his help... reaches down to help his son. Even if Drago betrays him moments later the gesture was so out of character and their bickering in the Demon World afterwards is so hilariously petty, one can't help but think that even they just might have a chance at reconciliation.
    • And at the end with the final cast call, Hak Foo gives his fellow Enforcers a, as he calls it, "Great Bear Hug."
  • A small one, but in "Dragon Scouts", after the enforces were caught with stolen museum property, Jackie promises not to tell their their nephews that their uncles are crooks.
  • In "Little Valmont, Big Jade", Daolon Wong turns Valmont into a child after the fallen crime lord demands to have his Enforcers back. When the Enforcers hear about this, they're touched. Later, when Wong attempts to blast off Valmont, the Enforcers suddenly throw their weapons at Wong and levitate them mere inches away from him. It's so unlike them to stand up to their current Bad Boss like that, making it also a Crowning Moment of Awesome. Too bad that Wong quickly puts them in their place and Valmont is unsympathetic towards their efforts.
    Finn: Ease up sweaty. No one touches Little V with us around.
    Chow: At least Valmont bothered to learn our names.
    Ratso: And he's so cute now, boss.
  • Near the end of "Deja Vu", Jackie is back in the shop and meeting Jade for the first time again. With knowledge of the future, he thinks to call Jade's parents and send her home to keep her out of danger, but then realizes just how helpful she's been to him and changes his mind at the last minute.
  • In the last season, the Earth and Moon Demon chi are both activated on Jade's birthday. While the Chan Clan is at a zoo trying to find the Moon Demon chi, Tohru gives Jade some cotton candy as a birthday present.
  • During the times she appears, Tohru's mom, despite her abrasive personality shows that she truly cares for her son. In return, Tohru is very protective of his mother. As he says to Chow in the 3rd Season.
    Tohru: Nobody hurts my mommy. (tosses Chow to a bed of needles)
  • The Christmas episode has two involving Tohruís mother, who is usually known to be very hard to please and always at odds with Uncle. First, she admits she is proud of her son because he substituted for Santa. Second, Uncle reveals he actually bought her a Christmas present.
  • A small one in the beginning of "Shanghai Moon": Ratso successfully makes the Pan'ku Box reveal Tso Lan's portal. He lets out a cheerful "Yes!". Immediately Shendu gives an approving "Yes.".
