* After the Empire is vassalized, everybody is on their toes waiting for whatever mass sacrifice or other abominable action Ainz will demand. In fact, there's a grand total of two orders: establishing who's in charge (basically stating that the Nazaricks are top dogs, in case anyone was stupid enough not to nottice), and send all death row prisoners to the Sorcerous Kingdom. And then they send one back, because it turns out he was innocent.

* After the titanic battle between [[spoiler:Shalltear and Ainz comes to a close (with Ainz's victory due to being CrazyPrepared), the first thing Ainz does after Shalltear is brought back to life is embrace her and apologizing and claiming that it was entirely his fault. For someone who's supposed to be an evil overlord, this was really one of the moments that reminds you that Ainz is ''still'' a human being with emotions and having been forced to kill one of his beloved subordinates that's like a daughter to him was enough for him to drop his act as a ruler. ]]
** Followed up after that, [[spoiler:when Ainz sees his NPC guardians bickering with each other and he feels left out, Albedo offers him a hand as if she knows exactly what he needs to cheer him up. For all of her obsessive like behavior, it truly shows how much Albedo cares for Ainz and that she always wants him to be happy. ]]

* Days after [[spoiler: his fight with Shalltear, Ainz asks Albedo how is she doing. Albedo says she is concerned with Shalltear's mental state, saying that she fell into depression because she saw her battle with Ainz an unforgivable sin. Albedo then suggest Ainz to punish her, not because she deserves it, but in order to make her guilt disappear. This is a very heartwarming moment of Albedo, that till then seemed only to show her kinder side towards Ainz alone, but in truth she cares for the other Floor Guardians.]]
* Even after Ainz admitting that Shalltear wasn´t at fault for [[spoiler: the brainwash]], she still begs him to punish her. Ainz responds that he loves all those that are loyal to Nazarick, so why was she asking him to punish her for something she was not guilty of? Shalltear, Mare and Aura start crying and even Demiurge was rubbing the corner of his eyes.
* After his [[spoiler: defeat against the Lizardmen]], Cocytus was expecting to be severely punished. Ainz, on the contrary, admits that [[spoiler: defeat was the only possible outcome even if he himself was leading the attack]]. While Ainz might be an EvilOverlord, he is not like the usual ones [[YouHaveFailedMe that would severely punish those that have been defeated]].
* Cocytus begs Ainz to [[spoiler: spare the Lizardmen]] and who is the Guardian that backs him up? Not Mare or Aura, but Demiurge of all people.

* Tsuare's decision to [[spoiler:stay beside Sebas despite the fact that he tried to kill her due to orders from his master (Ainz). Hell, moments before Sebas attempted to strike her she smiled at him and closed her eyes, fully embracing her death and was content that if she was going to die, it would be by his hands. ]]

* [[PapaWolf Ainz's]] and [[BigBrotherInstinct Nabarel Gamma's]] protectiveness towards Entoma is very strong that they were ready to blow their covers as Momon and Nabe to slaughter Evileye for daring to harm her. Thakfully, they calmed down when learning that Entoma escaped.

* Hilma literally rolling on the floor screaming with frustration at [[TooDumbToLive Philip's idiocy]]. The other members of the Eight Fingers sympathize with her but not a soul wanted to trade off duties with her. The precipitating event? [[spoiler: After hearing a rumor that Ainz had perished, Philip noted that he might inherit the Sorcerous Kingdom if he married Albedo. Since this would cause Albedo to enter a berserk fury if said to her face, the Eight Fingers are terrified that this statement might reach her ears.]]
