* The utterly ''gorgeous'' lyrics to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHHX5JWm5CU "Not Alone"]], the song used for the fourth anniversary trailer.
-->''So we leave the world we know behind\\
Behind\\
There's so much more to see\\
I hope you find what you're looking for\\
\\
Follow me, let's seek the light\\
For this darkness, we burn so bright\\
Oh we lose our way, we get lost sometimes\\
Maybe a little bit but we made it out\\
\\
I just want you to know\\
[-I just want you to know-]\\
That you're not alone.''

*** It should be noted, you only hand over a ''copy''. If you later develop the tech to resurrect them yourselves, you can still do so, giving them ''two'' leases on life.

Added DiffLines:

* A possible event for colonising a Tomb World has the colonists taking up the Pacifist ethos [[SceneryGorn as they take in the devastation war brought to their world]]. [[TheAtoner This has particularly poignant meaning if your empire is a Militarist one]].


* A certain outcome of the Underground Vault event. Should you choose to do so, your scientists will open it...and find nothing, save for the dead bodies of those who sealed themselves inside, unwittingly unleash a ZombieApocalypse that you'll have fight off, or [[TakeAThirdOption/ actual, living people in there]], who managed to not only survive the apocalypse that destroyed their planet, but ''thrive''. And you can choose to help them rebuild their lost civilization. That's right, if you so choose, you can literally be a savior descended from the stars to aid a once-great civilization in restoring their former glory.

* The whole of the "Three-Year Anniversary" trailer, which stresses the wonder and potential of the galaxy rather than it's horrors, including a shot of aliens receiving and caring for human refugees (implied to be from the UNE).

Added DiffLines:

* The Scion origin added in the Federations DLC makes it so your species was uplifted by a fallen empire, seemingly for the genuinely altruistic reason of simply seeing the potential your species held. Some of the quotes that appear when initiating diplomacy with them are very heartwarming.
--> Fallen Empire: Hello, [species name]. We always knew you were special.
--> Fallen Empire: Seeing you here now, I remember why your species was chosen.


* A Psionic empire that manages to communicate with the Prethoryn (and then learn their exact motivations) can invoke a little Heartwarming if they capture and tame a queen, since they [[spoiler: just saved a species of InvadingRefugees from extinction]] by taming the last hive leader in known space, adopting the creature into their own psychic community. Segues into Awesome when that queen repays her debt by fighting alongside you with her brood. As of Ancient Relics [[spoiler: the queen becomes a Relic]] you can use to breed more fleets of them. Congratulations, you've tamed the species and given them a new home.

* 'Precursor' playthroughs where the player turns off all the starting AI Empires (except Marauders and Fallen Empires), maxes out the time until the Endgame Crisis (while also maximizing the strength of that Crisis), and maxes out the number of primitive civilizations. Why? The potential to be the BigGood of the galaxy as vastly more primitive interstellar empires emerge, where ''you'' can be the BenevolentPrecursor to an ''entire galaxy''. Bonus points if you uplift multiple primitive civilizations. Take [[TheCavalry Defender of the Galaxy]], form a [[TheAlliance Federation]], and generally be the species that shelters fledgling civilizations from the likes of [[SpacePirates Marauders]] and other threats.
