** Even better: up until the Mr. Hat reveal, Apollo thought that someone from the Kitaki family abducted Trucy to prevent Wocky from getting a guilty verdict. The same powerful crime family that intimidated him the day before. That's who he's threatening to drag to court. That's how much he cares about Trucy.

Added DiffLines:

* Twice during the investigation portions of "Turnabout Serenade," Apollo and Trucy walk in on Klavier in a bad mood. The first time, he's arguing with Daryan over who missed the cue, and the second time, he's on the phone trying to get answers about the replica of the Borginian cocoon. Both times, he immediately perks up when he realizes that Apollo and Trucy are there. It's clear how much he enjoys their company.
--> '''Apollo''': Erm...hiya.
--> '''Trucy''': Tee hee! Just thought we'd drop in. Hope you're not mad...?
--> '''Klavier''': ...How could I be? There's not enough "tee hee" in the world, in any case. Have a seat.

** Phoenix admits that it was the darkest time in his life but Trucy was his light. D'awwwww.

Added DiffLines:

** During the MASON System, once Phoenix obtains Thalassa's photograph from Spark Brushel, he has no need for Trucy's locket since the former is an uncropped version of the photo in the locket. Instead of the standard removal of evidence from the Court Record, Phoenix just excludes it from the list while keeping it on his person, planning to return it to her as soon as possible.

Added DiffLines:

*Klavier's easygoing style of prosecution in general. While it might get on Apollo's nerves, Klavier's laid-back attitude is heartwarming when you consider Apollo's ButtMonkey status. Instead of being whipped, badgered, or pelted with mugs of hot coffee, Apollo and Klavier work together to find the truth, with Klavier in particular taking that as his personal philosophy in a similar vein to Edgeworth post-CharacterDevelopment. Makes you wonder if they influenced each other...


* The part in ''Apollo Justice'' where [[spoiler:Mafia heir Wocky discovers that the decision of his father to go straight, a decision Wocky had loathed, was done because of his father's desire to protect him]].
** Made even more heartwarming by the fact that Wocky just can't quite accept it. He stutters, then returns to his normal "gangsta" sprite and disappears. Switches to a [=CMOF=] when his father reveals the new family enterprise to be [[spoiler:a bakery]].

* The moment at the end of the 4th case of Apollo Justice where, playing as Juror #6, you choose whether the defendant is guilty or innocent. As the juror leans over the touch screen, their face is reflected in it- Lamiroir, the amnesiac singing diva from the third case. Then, after you press the button [[spoiler:her sleeve slips back, revealing a familiar bracelet on her wrist.]] As the realization sinks in it's simply amazing- [[spoiler:her true identity, which she'd forgotten for years, is Thalassa Gramarye, the mother of both Apollo and Trucy, long believed dead.]] Then you realize [[spoiler:[[GambitRoulette Phoenix had planned this all along]]]] and you're simply lost in awe.
* During the end credis sequence of ''Apollo Justice'', there is the scene with [[spoiler:former]] [[{{Hikikomori}} shut-in]] Vera Misham.
-->'''Vera''': I've decided to keep painting. [[spoiler:Originals only]], of course. I suppose I'll have to see a bit of the world outside to find out what to paint. But, I know there are good people out there, now. I've met them.\\

** Even more heartwarming when you consider [[{{Foreshadowing}} what you learned during the investigation]]: [[spoiler:the rough sketches underneath the paintings were of Apollo's cases, and her father, who played a role in Phoenix's disbarment, admired Phoenix greatly. Despite her limited understanding of what she was asked to do and why, the Mishams were ''always'' on your side.]]
* The end credits of Apollo Justice, when you see Phoenix. Goes something like this: [[spoiler:"You know, I've been a piano player longer than I've been a lawyer now. Maybe I'll start taking lessons. Or maybe I'll take the bar exam again." The screen pans out to reveal a photograph of Phoenix floating down, with Phoenix giving the most sincere grin the player ever sees.]]
** Becomes [[HeartwarmingInHindsight even better in hindsight]] when you learn [[spoiler: that Phoenix does in fact retake the bar exam and is a lawyer again in the fifth game]].
* The Judge gets a couple of lines that seemingly indicate that [[spoiler: he himself never believed that Phoenix had been forging evidence, and that he had faith in Phoenix?]] He's the last character from whom you would expect CharacterDevelopment, but it's clear that he ''has'' developed, in a sense: he's come to hold Phoenix in high regard.

** Trucy is the only person in [[spoiler: Phoenix's flashback who doesn't display a Psyche-Lock.]] It's a small detail, but it really accentuates her innocence. Light indeed.
** And then we have a [[spoiler: freshly disbarred Phoenix and an eight-year-old Trucy in the MASON system. Phoenix is so awkward and unsure of how to be a parent, but he still comes to the firm resolution to look out for this little girl.]] One of the most notable exchanges in this scene occurs after Trucy tells Phoenix about [[spoiler: her mother's mysterious disappearance in a magic trick several years ago.

* Apollo's reaction to Trucy's abduction from the courtroom, in Case 4-2. He's so happy to see her safe that he starts crying. He then angrily threatens to drag the guy responsible to court. [[spoiler:It then [[MoodWhiplash becomes much more funny]] when Trucy reveals that the guy was ''her ventriloquist dummy'', leading to Apollo threatening to drag ''her'' to court.]]
** The heartwarming doubles exponentially after TheReveal: [[spoiler: they're half-siblings, and yet Apollo showed the care and love of an older brother long before they--nor we--even learned of it.]]
* Phoenix, on Trucy and Apollo, to [[spoiler: their real mother.]]
