Eros resurrects Psyche and carries her up to Olympus to properly be married. Zeus is completely on board with it, and tells Aphrodite (who'd been harassing Psyche nonstop for most of the story) to back the hell off. Psyche is given ambrosia which makes her into an immortal goddess and she and Eros are married as equals. ** This is immediately followed up with the birth of their daughter Hedone (which roughly translates to "Joy") and Red's beautiful acoustic rendition of [[Theatre/{{Cinderella}} "Ten Minutes Ago"]] playing over the credits. -->'''Hedone:''' I'm symbolic of the union of the soul and love! Yay! * The "true end" to "Hou Yi and Chang'E," where neither of them is willing to leave behind the other to return to godhood, so they put away the immortality potion and successfully adjust to their mortal lives. -->'''[[ShelteredAristocrat Chang'e]]:''' ''[leaning out the window]'' Hey! I finally figured out how ''cooking'' works!\''' Hou Yi:''' ''[hunting birds]'' Nice!** This version also has it that, rather than living on the Moon because she's still barred from Heaven, Chang'e chooses to live there to be closer to her husband.* A small moment in the "Heracles" video, when Hades is (accidentally?) shot by one of Heracles's arrows, Persephone is seen tending to her husband when the titular hero returns with Cerberus.** Speaking of Cerberus, when Heracles first arrives at the gates of the Underworld, two out of three of Cerberus's heads are snarling at him, but as soon as Hades shows up, they immediately lapse into [[PreciousPuppy adorable puppy dog mode.]]* In Blue's "Finals Survival Guide", at one point Blue is curled up on the floor surrounded by notes, clearly stressing out. Then one of his friends comes into frame and proceeds to wrap him in a blanket and give him a cup of hot cocoa. She leaves frame for a quick minute, then returns to give him a hug. Aww!* Red's take on [[HappilyMarried Hades and Persephone's relationship]] in general. While it doesn't get much focus, the two are often portrayed as being very supportive and loving towards each other. ** Hades is also shown to be extremely protective of his wife. This is best exemplified when Theseus and Pirithous try to kidnap Persephone so the latter can marry her, Hades responds by fusing them to their chairs with snakes and siccing the Furies on them.*** When Hercules journeys down there, he's able to save Theseus from the chair - but an ominous rumble keeps him from freeing Pirithous, likely due to Hades holding a ''far'' stronger grudge against him than his accomplice.* Hades squeeing over baby Zagreus in the Dionysus video.* Literature/TamLin has some pretty cute dialogue when the title character and his lover Bonny Janet are planning to get him free:-->'''Tam Lin''': She's going to transform me into an array of dangerous, scary things, but I could never hurt you. You'll just need to keep holding on.\'''Bonny Janet''': Don't worry, I'm a very determined hugger.* Mixed with {{Tearjerker}}, Sun Wukong's reaction to failing to rescue Tripitaka in Part 6 of Journey to the West. He cares more about getting to his monk friend than the fact that he was ''nearly killed''. The same monkey who left to spite Tripitaka near the beginning. He really does care about his new human buddy.** In Part 5, Sandy reminds everyone of how much of a badass he actually is when he holds off an entire demon army so his friends can focus on fighting the larger threat. Sun Wukong is suitably moved.-->'''Sandy''': Don't worry, guys! I'll handle this! You just concentrate on the big guys!-->'''Sun Wukong''': We don't deserve him.* The lumberjack taking a running dive into the spider-yokai woman's waterfall basin at the end of the Jorogumo tale. He was willing to risk having her ''eat him alive'' on the off-chance that their friendly relationship wasn't just a ploy to devour him. And because of the [[AmbiguousEnding ambiguous]] NoEnding, the reader is free to assume the yokai was touched by his devotion, and they did have a HappilyEverAfter. The ending art shows the yokai in her spider form giving a cuddle-hug to the lumberjack.* From the retelling of ''The Odyssey'', Telemachus's reaction to seeing his father finally return home safe and sound: [[ManlyTears he starts crying]] and [[TheGlomp bear-hugs Odysseus]], giving an adorably sweet cry of "DAAAAAAAAD!"** In the same vein, Odysseus finally, FINALLY, reuniting with Penelope, his beloved wife.* A blink-and-you'll-miss-it example from the Perseus video: when Danaë and Perseus' chest is washed up on shore and they get found by a fisherman and his wife (Dictys and Clymene, their names aren't mentioned in the video), the very first thing Danaë says is "[[GoodParents prioritize the baby]]".** Perseus proceeds to grow up with [[ThreesomeSubtext three parents and an absentee god-father]]. Both the shot of Perseus as a child and the shot of the happy-ever-after include a smiling Danaë [[IntimateHairBrushing combing Clymene's hair]].* The De-Vine Egyptian Gods video has a surprisingly adorable moment between Set and Anubis:-->'''Set:''' (Intimating and gravely) ''We have ways of making you talk''...(Anubis tugs on his sleeve to show him a picture) Timmy, Timmy, Daddy's working right now-Oh my gosh, did you draw this? [[SoProudOfYou That is so good!]]* In Journey to the West Part VII, Red notes that, as a monkey, Sun doesn't really like cooked food. So when he, Sandy, and Pigsy go to mess with the Daoists by eating all their offerings, and most of said offerings are cooked, Sun just eats what little fruit there is and has fun just hanging out with his friends. Pigsy also finds Sun's prank of peeing in a jar and claiming it's holy water to be hilarious.** As well as the fact that suicidally impulsive Sun Wukong, who earlier in the pilgrimage would have wrecked the entire city by himself, decided to get Pigsy and Sandy with him to play a prank on the Daoists, really goes to show how much he's grown to appreciate his friends. He probably would've invited Tripitaka and the dragon too, if Tripitaka hadn't been so by-the-book and the dragon hadn't been... a horse.* Pwyll (pronounced Pwush, by the way) turns out to be a great role model when compared to most mythological heroes:** While spending an entire year as the fae-king Arawn, he refuses to even look at Arawn's wife naked, because that would be sexual assault at best and straight up rape at worst.** Rhiannon married him out of her own initiative, not out of obligation or his advances.** His marriage to Rhiannon was, as far as we see, mutually supportive. When he's forced to give her up to her asshole former fiancee, they work together to find a way around it, and he (at least in Red's depiction) acknowledges that it was totally his fault.** He refuses to leave her, even when she's (falsely) accused of eating their baby.** Pwyll doesn't even kill a single named character in the entire story, not even Rhiannon's asshole former fiancee.** In another heartwarming moment, the conveniently childless couple that takes in Pwyll and Rhiannon's child (later named Pryderi) realizes that the missing prince might be the mysterious kid they took in, and resolves to reunite him with his real parents. The adoptive dad even calls the reunion between the Pryderi and Pwyll "the cutest thing [he's] ever seen".* In the [[AfterTheEnd Post Apocalypse]] trope talk, Red has nothing but good things to say about the [[Creator/StudioGhibli Ghibli]]-apocalypse, calling it her favorite kind. She goes on for a long time about how the villains in movies like ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' and ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' are those who refuse to let go of war, and desperately try to win despite the cost, while the heroes are those who live in harmony with nature and leave the past and the horrors of war behind them. [[AuthorAppeal Also, the heroes will use flying machines.]]
