Heartwarming / Terraria

  • Having the Clothier arrive can lead to the realization that the old man was freed from his curse after all.
  • The 1.2 update. So, so, so much new content, and all entirely for free. Gracias, Redigit.
    • Which was then followed up by the 1.3 update, which was also for free.
  • Freeing the Tax Collector from his torment in the Underworld with Purification Powder. His gratitude is... questionable, but considering he is literally called "Tortured Soul" before purification, it's a pretty safe assumption you've done the right thing.
  • Several of the paintings that can be randomly found throughout the world can be very heartwarming. The painting "Sparky" features an image of Redigit and Cenx's deceased pet dog; the tooltip reads "In loving memory". "Terrarian Gothic" shows an image of the Mechanic and Goblin Tinkerer together, a romantic pairing that is heavily implied elsewhere in-game. Finally, there are quite a few paintings about boss battles, implying that the player's adventures have become so legendary that Terrarian artists have recorded them for posterity in the form of paintings.
