* [[BandOfBrothers The camaraderie of Noble Team.]] Even Emile and Jorge, two polar opposites, consider each other friends [[spoiler: with the former [[AndThisIsFor dedicating some kills]] to the fallen Spartan-II.]]


* [[OneSceneWonder Jonas]], the kebab merchant in Sadie's Story. Rather than choosing to flee like all the other civillians, he stays. Partly because [[BigFun his obesity]] renders him incapable of running, but mostly to give away kebabs for the fleeing refugees. Guy's a damn saint.

* When the Chief reaches the last lifeboat, he sees a marine who has tripped on the floor. Chief picks him up and throws him into the lifeboat before boarding himself.
** In the same cutscene, another marine timidly asks him if they're going to die. The Chief's response is a comforting hand on the shoulder. However, the scene quickly becomes a TearJerker when the lifeboat crashes and everyone but the Chief survives.

* At the start, when they think the Chief's dead or incapacitated, Johnson wants heavy lift equipment, because [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind "We're not leaving him here."]] And then the Chief's hand grabs him, and he speaks up, and Johnson gets cheerful. Less gloomy. Whatever. Point is, it's a great demonstration of camaraderie.
