* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX6SiEO3HVg Devil's ending]]. This will also be the only time you'll ''even'' see Kazuya caring for Jun.


* While it remains to be seen if it'll stick for the next game or not, and God knows if her intentions are supposed to be read as nice, but Lili bailing Asuka's family out of a tight financial situation further proves her hijinks are a sign of affection.

* Lars' ending in ''[=TTT2=]'' is both this and CrowningMomentOfFunny. It's about the first time in the series the Mishima actually get along. With the Kazama as well, for that matter.

* Not only it is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]], the fact that the one that spoke with Kazumi decades ago about having to kill Heihachi turns out to be [[Franchise/StreetFighter Akuma]] is pretty heartwarming on its own considering this is [[BloodKnight Akuma]] we're talking about. This cements further that he is ''the'' NobleDemon, willing to put aside his whole business about getting stronger and reaching new limits for the Satsui no Hadou, to fulfill a promise he made to Kazumi.

* Unknown's ending in ''Tekken Tag Tournament 2''. After Unknown dies, she falls off, rather agonizingly, while still having her black goo coated, which means that she is still cursed. But then, Angel comes and purifies her, [[HolyBurnsEvil stripping all of the goo in the process]] and restores her to the person she really was: Jun. Sure, Jun remains dead, [[DyingAsYourself but at least she dies free of the curse]]. [[AwesomeMusic The music definitely helps the mood]].

* Surprising for what's usually a joke character, Paul's ending. [[spoiler:After winning the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 and having everything he ever wanted, he realizes that it's not him after seeing a poster in Marshall Law's dojo. It then cuts to him starting up his motorcycle, he takes a longing sniff of gasoline, removes his rich shades, and mutters, "Ain't my style." He then throws them away, and drives into the sunrise.]]

* Christie's and Eddy's ''Tekken 5'' endings. They spend the tournament looking for a cure for their grandfather/master and when they do win, quickly exhaust all technologies they can to restore him into healthiness. The result? It's a success! And the ending is closed with them doing sparring again with him! [[spoiler: Too bad, it's non-canon, [[TearJerker and their grandfather/master does die in the following game]].]]

* After years of [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited loves]], Ganryu finally finds an admirer! Guess, who? [[spoiler: [[ProperLady Lili]]! Specifically, she likes him because his FascinatingEyebrow reminds her of her father's. Too bad that in this case, it's ''Ganryu'' who makes her affection unrequited.]]

* The fact that [[spoiler: Lars might have fallen in love with Alisa. It's not stated outright for obvious reasons, but it seems that EveryoneCanSeeIt in the ''Tekken'' universe, since Jin quickly learns about it the moment that he disables Alisa's safe mode by [[KickTheDog mocking Lars]] for [[JustAMachine having affection for a mere android]]. Regardless, it gives a way different meaning to all of their previous interactions together. Then there's Lars' choice to turn Alisa in to Lee so he can fix her and, just maybe, restore her memories back...]]
* [[spoiler: [[IceQueen Nina]] is aware of Jin's plan to sacrifice himself before everyone else does. And she is genuinely worried about the repercussion this will inflict not only on Jin himself, but to the world as well. Proof that EveryoneHasStandards.]]

** While most winposes depict them battling, Yoshimitsu / Kunimitsu has a winpose where they perform backflip together, as if in comradeship again.



* In Steve [[spoiler: and Leo's]] ''Tekken Tag Tournament 2'' endings, it's stressed again that Steve was merely a test subject of Mishima Zaibatsu, who thought him so lowly, they just gave him [[YouAreNumberSix a codename: NT401]]. Yet there was one scientist who ''didn't'' think of him as just a subject: [[spoiler: Emma Kliesen. She]] took him in with kindness and later reported his false death, before transferring him to be adopted elsewhere. [[spoiler: Leo]] ''is'' freakin' dang lucky to have a [[spoiler: mother]] like that (especially compared to the [[BigScrewedUpFamily Mishimas]]) and really drives home just how evil whoever [[spoiler: ordered Emma's execution]] is.

While driving Lili home, he tries to cheer her up from her losing the tournament with some music, only for every radio station to take about his spectacular victory in the tournament. When they arrive home, Lili has just one thing to say to him: [[spoiler: "Congratulations[[note]] Félicitations[[/note]]."]]

* King's ending in ''Tekken 4''. Although donating the fortunes of the Mishima Zaibatsu to impoverished children of the world is heartwarming all on its own, the scene that follows is even more so. After tracking down Craig Marduk to a hospital where he's being treated, King enters his room with the intent on avenging the death of Armor King. Raising his fist to end him once and for all in one fell swoop, he...[[NotSoDifferent notices a picture on the bedside table of Marduk with his family.]] Slowly, he lets his fist down, and places said picture on Craig's chest, before [[VengeanceFeelsEmpty leaving]].
