Heartwarming / The Magnificent Seven

Film
  • In a real Tear Jerker moment the village boys keep their promise. The last time we see them they are in fact putting fresh flowers on O'Reilly's grave.
  • Chris's comforting lies to Harry Luck as he dies, assuring him that they were actually fighting for a fortune in gold.
    Harry: Well, I'll be damned. *Breathes his last*
    Chris: Maybe you won't be.
    • And we'll never know if he believed it, or just appreciated the lie in his last moments.note 
  • Lee, believing himself as a man who'd lost his nerve. Stepping up to save a group of imprisoned villagers. Then watching with pride and admiration as they step up and help fight Calvera's men.
  • Chico is welcomed into the group much faster than his counterpart Kikuchiyo, albeit not as sooner as his other counterpart Katsushiro. When Chris spots Chico cooking fish by a fire, he invites him to come along with them. And after the Bavarian Fire Drill scene, Chris remarks, "Now we are seven".
  • The whole final act of the film is this incarnate. Look at what's happening from the farmers' perspective. They hired some cold-blooded killers to protect them from a bunch of other cold-blooded killers, and later sell them out out of very human fear and doubt. Said cold-blooded killers then come back and save them all anyways, simply because the seven of them, despite their own flaws, the lack of a worthwhile reward, and having every reason to abandon the village to their fate just out of spite, choose to be the heroes of the story.
