Being one of the more upbeat ''Kamen Rider'' series, this show has more than a few moments to make you go "aww".

As a moments page, '''[[Administrivia/SpoilerPolicy all spoilers are unmarked from this point on]]'''.



* #12: The Yummy's host is a friend of Eiji's that he met while abroad. His desire is to be famous, and the Yummy is stealing 'talent' from others and sending it to him, warping his personality. He eventually hows up at the cafe demanding that Eiji let him use his experiences as his own; Hina is horrified, but Eiji says he doesn't care about that and just wants his friend to go back to being himself. Then Ankh pulls Eiji aside and says he should go take out the Yummy, because it's 'probably built up a lot [of medals] by now,' but the entire exchange comes off as him trying to reassure Eiji that he has the means to save his friend...
* #16: There's a small moment when Eiji is having a realisation about how much it must suck to be a Greeed, and looks at the destruction wrought by Mezool's loss of control. Not only does he express sympathy for her and Gamel, but he also makes a promise about Ankh, that the Bird Greeed doesn't seem to hear; one that makes it pretty that, for all their arguing, Eiji has started to care for the jerk.
--> '''Eiji''': 'No. I won't let this happen to you.'

* #32: After Eiji ends up badly beaten by the first two Dinosaur Yummy, Ankh asks him if he's alright. Counts because this is the first time Ankh seemed to actually show true concern for someone other than himself.
** Even before this, examining Ankh's behaviour even in a few of the early episodes, it's possible to see his attitude as morphing into something like ThisIsMyHuman towards Eiji--sure, there's probably a degree of self-interest in there (it '''is''' Ankh, after all), but he comes across as legitimately concerned at times; like trying to stop Eiji from doing combos too much because of the strain it puts on him. Ankh really wants to stay a Jerkass, but in some good story telling, you can tell that Eiji's general likability has been creeping up on him for a while.
* #38: Before Gotou going all TranquilFury on Greeed ass, in order to avenge Date's "death", Date's "dying moments" along with Gotou crying out his name was pretty heartwarming.
* #40: [[spoiler:Ankh discovering he can't bring himself to hurt Hina and Eiji anymore, followed by them throwing him a birthday party (well, technically it was originally for his host, but Hina changes her mind), which by the end he actually seems to enjoy. Considering it's probably the first time in his life anyone has ever done something like that for him, it's really touching.

** It may just be me but the whole fight between Ankh and Eiji was one. Both still are bonded to the other, and this is shown at the end, where Ankh asks Eiji if he's ever really really wanted anything...which ilicts this exchange.

* In the ''Wonderful'' movie, after he and a chunk of the city are displaced into feudal Japan, Eiji is presented with a SadisticChoice by one of [[BigBad Gara's]] proxies. Eiji will be allowed to return to the present day, but when he leaves, the village and everyone left in it will be destroyed. Uncharacteristically, he agrees to the deal on the grounds that if he doesn't, no one will be able to stop Gara. However, he will only take the deal if Hina and Ankh can go with him since they're like family to him, so Gara's proxy agrees to spare everyone he considers family. Turns out, Eiji considers ''everyone'' in the village, whether from the past or the present day, to be family, and his desire to save them all [[ExplosiveOverclocking completely overloads]] the machine Gara had been using to gather cell medals and trigger TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
** Heartwarming points go to Kougami in this scene, too, because he was the one who suggested that Gara approach Eiji in the first place for exactly this reason.
** While its place in canon is... dubious, the official video for the ending theme is a big song-and-dance including everyone from both the modern day and feudal Japan. While Eiji initially has to drag Ankh into it, by the end the Greeed is quite clearly enjoying himself!
* Movie Wars Megamax has the reunion between the old gang, for one, and the story of Miharu Minato. Seeing Minato go from someone very weak and unsure of himself to a strong, confident Rider thanks to Eiji's kindness is wonderful to watch. This pays off in the third act, too, when Minato comes back and gives Eiji the Super Medals that turn the tide in the fight against the big bad.
** Ankh taking the Medals from Poseidon, something Eiji can't currently do, and giving them back to Eiji, making this the second time Ankh has given Eiji the power to help people.

* The 1000th episode {{Homage}} arc in #27-28. A plotline of any sort would normally seem like an afterthought for a storyline condemned to BottleEpisode status, but not only is continuity left intact, but the story even ends with the image of a [[NebulousEvilOrganization Shocker]] {{Mook}} and a KamenRider shaking hands and making peace. For a 1000th episode, this was ''very'' long in coming indeed.
