Heartwarming: The Mighty Ducks
The films

The Mighty Ducks

  • Charlie and Gordon bonding and playing together, while Charlie's mom watches.
  • Charlie welcoming Banks to the team and then passing the puck to him in his first game with them, unlike everyone else.

D2: The Mighty Ducks

  • The LA street hockey team reteaches Team USA how to play with pride. By the end of the game, all are seen as Worthy Opponents.
  • When Banks returns from his injury and Russ begins to take off his jersey, Charlie stops him and tells Bombay Banks can have his roster spot.

D3: The Mighty Ducks

  • The scene of Orion skating with his wheelchair-bound daughter, while Bombay explains how he gave up his pro career to take care of her.
  • The hug between Orion and Conway at the end of the movie.
  • The way that Bombay catches Charlie's eye at the end of the big game with a look that says "I told you that you and Orion would be awesome together".

The Animated Series

Power Play

  • When Grin saves Stanley from falling to his death.
    Stanley: You, you saved my life, but why?
    Grin: It's my way.

Take Me To Your Leader

  • When, after Wildwing saved everyone again, the gang tells him that he's a better leader than even Canard himself.

Bringing Down Baby

  • All the Nosedive and "Baby" moments that aren't tear jerking, especially whenever Nosedive used his new watch to sooth the little alien.

Jurassic Puck

  • Honestly, the moment when Wildwing swoops in and saves Nosedive after seemingly being blown up moments before is not just a "Crowning Moment of Heartwarming", but of funny, heartwarming, and awesome all in one!
    Nosedive: Bro! You’re alive! Cool!

Duck Hard

  • Tanya goes off on the Saurians to avenge the fallen Wildwing; then Wildwing starts firing at the enemy with her and thanks her. It's her reaction that really makes it a moment of heartwarming as apposed to a Crowning Moment of Funny.
    Tanya: This is for you, Wildwing!
    Wildwing: Thanks, Tanya; 'ppreciate.
    Tanya: WILDWING! You're okay!
