Heartwarming: Wonder Woman

From the Comics

  • From Challenge of the Gods, both Diana and Hippolyta choosing to put the past behind them and try to rescue Hercules from his And I Must Scream situation.
  • In Warkiller, Diana realizes that Genocide has used her Emotion Bomb powers to poison Donna Troy's mind, causing her to fly into a delusional, Unstoppable Rage when in proximity to the Golden Lasso of Truth. Without hesitation, Diana tosses her Iconic Item into the sea.
    Diana: It is a glorious thing. But it is still a possession. You are my sister. And all the gifts from the gods that have ever been aren't worth a strand of your hair.
  • Wonder Woman #600 has Diana leading a team of all the superheroines against an army of robots build by Professor Ivo. After, she (very nicely) declines an offer to go to a bar with them or to meet the President in favour of attending Vanessa Kapatelis' graduation.
  • In the alternate timeline of Odyssey, Diana has been receiving help from a mental projection that, unbeknownst to her, belongs to Dr. Psycho (whom she finds familiar, but does not remember). She's finally able to get him to reveal his real form, as a dwarf. When he sadly does so, her comment is "This isn't so bad, is it?" Since this Psycho is a lot less evil than the main universe one, it's nice to see somebody look past his appearance. It's followed by his speech on how he'd rather go back to being a monster, and her enemy, than live in a universe without her, which is also rather touching.
  • In the New 52:
    • This interaction between Hephaestus and Eros.
    Hephaestus: No one loves Eros more than he does.
    Eros (slightly hurt): Father?
    Hephaestus: And I love you even more than that, son.
    • Diana telling Hades that she loves everyone, including him.
    • After being critically injured by the First Born, Diana is visited by Ares' ghost, who offers to take her to the afterlife. She says that she can't, to which he replies with a smile "Of course not. That was selfish of me."
    • In the climax of Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang's run, the Minotaur is ordered by the First Born to kill Diana; he refuses as Diana had shown him mercy when she was much younger.

From the 2009 DTV Animated Film

  • Alexa trading places with Diana so she can compete. Especially Diana's huge smile when she learns of Alexa's plan.
  • Diana revealing herself at the competition. You'd expect Hippolyta to be angry, maybe even turn her down completely. But she doesn't. She takes the tiara off her own head and gives her full permission to Diana to go.
    Hippolyta: I have no doubt you will serve us well, my daughter.
  • Basically any time Steve talks with Diana, if it's not a Crowning Moment of Funny. Notable points are when he tells her that he chose saving her over stopping Ares because he cares about her, and when he starts telling her about himself on the plane (although that was partially brought on his foot being stuck in the Lasso of Truth). Not to mention the Big Damn Kiss at the end.
  • Diana teaching a little girl how to swordfight, after noticing that the girl is sad because boys won't let her play with them.
  • Artemis saying goodbye to Alexa and calling her "sister". After an entire movie of disparaging Alexa's pacifistic, bibliophile tendencies, they save the zombified Amazons from being forced to kill their sisters in combat and stand together to fight Ares army. Crosses over into tearjerker territory.
    • And although it turns into a (mild) Crowning Moment of Funny, Artemis' final scene is her trying to find the patience to read books; Alexa, in her last scene, had shown Amazonian courage for the first (and last) time ever, making this feel like Artemis is returning the favour - both are looking from the other's perspective at last.
