* In a general sense, anytime he's playing a game he enjoys or talking about something he likes. He's basically the audio version of {{When He Smiles}}.
* What is one of the first things Dan does when when he hits 1,000,000 subscribers? He makes a video showing his favorite {{YouTube}}rs.
* When Dan gets emotionally attached to the baby badgers in ''{{VideoGame/Shelter}}''
* Arguably 'this gay kiss' shows Dan sticking up for gay rights as many comments asked him to take that part of the video down and he refused by showing it many more times after that.
* The amount of people that Dan stuck up for in his ''[[VideoGame/PennAndTellersSmokeAndMirrors Desert Bus]]'' videos.
* Whenever Dan feels sad for [[ButtMonkey Petey]] in ''VideoGame/{{Bully}}''
* Dan's video with Hannah Hart (of MyDrunkKitchen) where he reveals that she was his inspiration for quitting his "real job" and starting an exclusive career as a Youtube entertainer.
* Dan using his publicity to help small indie games get greenlit on {{Steam}}.
* ''Nighthood & Decoy'' helping Dan get rid of an unfair copyright claim.
* Dan noticed on Twitter that his videos had been viewed half a billion times. DadCubed had this to say:
-->"Congrats son on half a billion views, that's a bloody lot of laughs, here's to the next half billion."
* Speaking of DadCubed, he and Dan shared a moment in [[http://youtu.be/ucPE9mCp25U?t=6m55s one of their Father and Son-Days]], reminiscing about an air show they used to see, and how the "Top Fun" games remind Dan of the air show, with Dan concluding with "I fucking love this game". It's a surprisingly sweet moment in a slew of videos where they cheerfully insult and murder each other, and shows that yes, they are family.
* In a meta sense, the several {{Take That}}'s at {{VideoGame/Hunie Pop}}. He shows outright disgust towards the games sexist...everything, seems to show concern for some of the characters, and, of course, there's eh swimsuit section.
-->Kyu: Quick, now's your chance. Before she goes to change, just say something; anything!
-->Dan: Can't I talk to her when she's wearing clothes that she's comfortable in?
