Playing With: Sweet Dreams Fuel
Basic Trope: A moment (or moments) that trigger warm, pleasant and gratifying feelings. It may induce Tears of Joy, too.
  • Straight: In Albert: Champion of justice, Albert has just beat the villain of the week and is walking back to his hideout when he is stopped by a little girl, handed a flower, and she says "You worked so hard to save me today. I'm sorry I don't have anything else."
  • Exaggerated: The entire show is about puppies and kittens playing with toddlers.
  • Downplayed: Something small and heartwarming occurs.
  • Justified: ???
  • Inverted: Nightmare Fuel.
  • Subverted: A little girl gives Albert a flower, apparently in gratitude, and it's seemingly adorable. Then it turns out that the flower is a Man-Eating Plant.
  • Double Subverted: The little girl didn't know it was a Man-Eating Plant and is adorably apologetic about what she did.
  • Parodied: The term "fuel" is taken literally, and gas cans of happiness are spread across the world.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Nightmare Fuel.
  • Enforced: The author(s) wanted to develop a kind of anti-depressant for all the Tear Jerker moments both in and out of fiction.
  • Lampshaded: "Wasn't that just so cute you could puke a kitten?"
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
