Heartwarming: The King of Fighters
  • Many of the Ikari team's endings qualify with their defrosting of Leona.
    • Specially in 97, where she cries after hearing her father's voice kindly speaking to her in her heart, then sees Ralf and Clark's silly antic to make her smile... and she does so.
  • Despite how annoying Rose can be, the scene in XIII when she's released from Botan's Brain Washing and falls in the distressed Adel's arms is oddly sweet. Specially due to this quote:
    "To protect Rose as her brother that is his role. It would never change, come hell and high water... In the end his memory was completely gone, but a strong sense of fulfillment remained. Adelheid succeeded in protecting Rose"
    Rose: "W-what have I...?"
    Adel: "It was a bad dream, Rose. I'm here now"
  • The 97's endings of The Psycho Soldier Team and The Women's Team are both so, so cute. Specially when Athena teleports to help Ill Girl Kaoru when she tries to walk and falls off her wheelchair and when Chizuru hears her dead sister Maki's voice in her mind, telling her to be happy. (The second might be Harsher in Hindsight, tho, considering what happens to Chizuru and Maki in 2003.)
  • The Fatal Fury Team's 2000 ending. Terry has apparently died after the last fight and the destruction of Sotuh Town, and Mary narrates what has been going on in a rather melancholic tone. At the end, however, she steps in a warehouse where she's supposed to find some burglars, they're already beaten up... and the one who did it was Terry, who stands in the doorway and smiles.
  • Even if they're non-canonical, Kula's Sky Stage endings are rather sweet. Specially her solo end and the ones she shares with Kyo and Athena.
