  • The team still remaining close after the film's end.
  • Right before the episode title appears onscreen, we are treated to a group selfie taken at some point during the film. It shows the team didn't let their training against Yokai stop them from taking a moment to just bond.
  • During the tour of the campus, Wasabi is seen with an arm around Hiro's shoulder a few times, in a brotherly fashion. When Hiro gets his ID card, Wasabi even puts it in a sleeve for him and tells him not to lose it in a brotherly tone.
  • Granville's Establishing Character Moment. Under a minute, she demonstrates a stern, but patient and sympathetic personality towards Hiro, with the implication that she has faith in him and wants to help.
  • Hiro's hug with Baymax after he rebuilds him becomes even sweeter when you know how much time and effort he put into restoring him, along with risking his life to get the new body back.
  • Baymax greeting Aunt Cass, who mutters "Baymax?" in delightful surprise, implying that she knew about him. Cue hug between the two, until Aunt Cass pulls Hiro in to make it a group hug.

  • Wasabi enthusiastically hugs Honey Lemon upon discovering that she wasn't killed in the mishap that froze her dorm room.
  • Gogo trying to cheer up Honey Lemon after she realizes she accidentally created a villain.

"Fred's Bro-Tillion"

  • After spending the episode worrying about the opinions of Binky, Fred's mother firmly establishes herself as an Aunt Pennybags and good parent by declaring that earning Binky's favor is overrated, happily enjoying the second Bro-Tillion at the humble Lucky Cat Cafe, and outright saying how proud she is of Fred!
  • Fred waltzing with his mother in the Lucky Cat Cafe.

"Aunt Cass Goes Out"

  • Krei being a gentleman to Aunt Cass, his jerkassery towards other people in the process not withstanding. He gives her special hard-to-acquire flowers and takes her out to a nice restaurant, and they also bond over using money to make cute origami.

  • Mochi's reunion with Aunt Cass.

"Killer App"

  • Baymax telling Noodle Burger Boy that robots are meant to help people.

"Small Hiro One"

  • Trevor admitting to Wendy that he stole her thesis, and that he's going to admit what he did. Wendy also forgives him immediately, since fame and recognition was never why she pursued a career in science to begin with and is happier teaching it to young kids.
  • There's a brief one when Karmi admits to Hiro that Trevor kicked her out. Hiro gives her sympathy for it, and she responds with a "Thanks." She even has a sincere smile! Turns into a funny moment when both Hiro and Karmi realize they're being nice to each other and gag in unison.
    • Later, Karmi is shown happily helping Wendy Wower teach her kids, even though she mocked Hiro for it earlier.

"Rivalry Weak"

  • All of Honey Lemon's artwork depicts her friends.
  • Honey Lemon's friends knew all along that she takes art classes at SFAI and are okay with it. They remained quiet because they decided to wait until she was ready to tell them herself.

"Big Hero 7"

  • While it's also played for laughs, High Voltage's reconciliation is still legitimately touching.
  • Fred comforting Richardson when his comic book store contents are torn to shreds. It turns funny, however, when they both draw back in disgust.
    Richardson: Who would do such a horrible thing?
    Fred: Villains, that's who. (hugs Richardson) Filthy villains.

"Big Problem"

"Steamer's Revenge"

  • The gang retrieving Wasabi's car from the bay, and upgrading it, as a surprise for his birthday. His reaction says it all:
    Wasabi: (hugging the hood of his car, choked up) You guys! You're giving me all the feels!
    • Fridge Heartwarming: One upgrade given is the ability for his car to operate underwater. Never again will he lose it to the bay! Unless it falls into the bay outside of underwater mode...
  • Fred telling Hiro that nothing's more important than Wasabi's birthday. It may just seem like it's Fred being his usual self, but he really is a great friend.
  • Fred is encouraged to be himself after he feels insecure about having to live up to his father's legacy.
  • Wasabi, as he drives his car underwater to thwart Steamer's plan. He's clearly quite delighted with the outcome:
  • Fred hugging Boss Awesome from the video chat screen after learning to impersonate him. It's also a Fridge Tearjerker.

"The Bot Fighter"

  • Baymax showing Hiro a video of Tadashi speaking of botfighting, and that even if he doesn't agree with his brother's botfighting tendencies, Hiro is a good kid and will always do what's right.
    Baymax: Tadashi was right. Hiro, you are a good kid.
    [Hiro gives a touched smile to Baymax]
  • The group hug at the end. Enough said.

"Obake Yashiki"

  • Although it's mitigated by the context that it's an illusion and a trick, the interaction between Hiro and the Tadashi illusion was nice while it lasted. For an instant, one wants to believe that in the least, Tadashi's spirit manifested for Halloween just to talk with his brother. The conversation even feels as though the two brothers are picking up where they left off.
    • Afterwards, when all is said and done, Hiro tells his friends about what happened, and is saddened by how it was just an illusion. What more can you expect; his friends comfort him and express how low it was for Obake to manipulate Hiro emotionally like that.
  • On a meta-level, an interview with Tadashi's voice actor has him reveal that if the show ever needs him to voice-act more of Tadashi, he's more than happy to lend his talent.
  • Baymax taking a moment to give a little girl who is dressed as his hero self a lollipop. D'aww.
  • After realizing that what they're seeing is augmented reality from contact lenses in the haunted house, Gogo comes to Wasabi as Fred and Honey Lemon take the contacts out. Even through her annoyance at his not listening to her, she still tells him to take the contacts out, which he does.

"Countdown to Catastrophe"

  • Globby cares enough about his Only Friend Felony Carl that he doesn't need any other reason for his Heel–Face Turn.
  • When a shocked Obake asks how Hiro could have stopped his plan, Baymax just says that Hiro is smart and resourceful, like there was never any question in his mind that he could do it.
  • Baymax discovering that Obake is suffering from a brain injury that essentially lobotomized his sense of morality, suggesting that his evil may be involuntary as opposed to self-imposed, and he offers to get him help if he stands down.
  • Obake releasing Baymax from his control and telling him to save Hiro. Maybe there was still some good in him after all.
    • Baymax patting Obake's back and saying "there there" to comfort him. Baymax is programmed to be pure.
  • When Wasabi, standing on top of a school bus with elementary students, awaits for the outcome of Hiro and Fred's stopping the catastrophe, a little girl holds his hand. The scene is quite adorable.
  • Baymax doing a Call-Back of "The Bot-Fighter" and calling Hiro a good kid before a group hug, where even Globby joins. D'aww!

    Season 2 

"Internabout"

  • In a way, Trina showing concern over her "little brother" Noodle Burger Boy.

"Prey Date"

  • After squeeing over Captain Cutie and assuring him they would cure Orso Knox, Karmi asks if Hiro was hurt when he was taken by him. Karmi and Hiro have had their share of arguments (even at the beginning of the episode), but it's nice to know that she does genuinely care for him, if only a little bit.

"Something's Fishy"

  • This episode is Barb and Juniper's most heartwarming episode to date. Once they finally give up supervillain life after being forced to work for Liv, both give each other a hug and are excited to finally live their lives as civilians. Though it turns to slight Tear Jerker after their eel mutation, where Juniper calls themselves freaks and Barb is reassuring her daughter with a hug.
  • Hiro dancing with Megan at her high school. Sure, he needs some work, but he never got to live a normal life, and he's laughing and having so much fun with his new friend.
    • Just his friendship with Megan in general. They hit it off right away, and Megan, being aware Hiro never got to live like a normal kid due to being a genius, wants him to do fun activities because everyone deserves to have some fun.

"Nega-Globby"

  • Honey and Globby's friendship. Their relationship evolved since Season 1 and both trust each other and are ready to go to great lenghts to help one another. It's especially heartwarming considering Globby used to actually be a villain Honey had to defeat.
    • Dibs feeling guilty about stealing Honey's purse again, knowing it's the only way he can become Globby again and help them defeat Nega-Globby.
    • Honey Lemon thinking Nega-Globby is Dibs and feeling guilty for having messed her experiment up.
  • Felony Carl reading through Dibs like an open book and knowing he's not entirely satisfied to be human again, telling him he is special. The whole time, he has his arm around Dibs in a comforting way. Everyone needs a friend like Felony Carl.
  • The photos in Dibs' phone of Obake's team being like a family.
  • Honey Lemon and Karmi's "bio-besties" friendship. Considering Karmi is friendless (except for Liv, but it's not like she's honest about it), seeing the sympathetic friendly Honey befriend her and act like a big sis towards her is definitely heartwarming.

"Fate of the Roommates"

  • GoGo finally getting the courage to tell Honey Lemon that she wanted her to stay and not move out of her apartment. The subsequent hug and "emotional moment selfie" sums it up beautifully.
    • When Honey Lemon proposes the selfie, GoGo initially gives her a skeptical look, but then smiles as if to say "Aw, what the heck?" and gets into it.

"Muira-Horror!"

  • Mochi going Papa Wolf on Hibagon Ned to protect Hiro. Sure, he may be annoyed to be used as a guinea pig sometimes, but no one messes with his owner.

"Something Fluffy"

  • Even if they're created for nefarious purposes, the infant Mayoi are inoffensive and genuinely love the civilians who adopt them.

"Supersonic Sue"

  • Fred deciding to let Richardson keep Captain Fancy's underwear after he saw Richardson was friendless and uses collection objects to fill the void.
  • Supersonic Sue admitting to GoGo that she came out of retirement after seeing her skate on the news. After spending the episode boasting her superiority to GoGo, Sue really does see GoGo as a Worthy Opponent.
  • The episode was made In Memoriam of Stan Lee, and what better way to do so than with having his character defeat two long time super villan rivals, all without missing a trick.

"Lie Detector"

  • Hiro lying about Cass' salami acai bowl being good so he wouldn't hurt her feelings.
  • Baymax Playing Possum and pretending to be down for the count only to use a stealth attack on Bessie. "He lied" so "Hiro wouldn't get hurt".

"Write Turn Here"

  • Honey Lemon, after Hiro tells a rather harsh fanfiction about Karmi being humiliated, continues it by have Hiro comfort her and confess his feelings. Sure, it's mostly a funny moment, but it just shows she doesn't want anyone to be hurt and wants Hiro and Karmi to get along (though at quite some extent).
  • While silly, Fred's take on the fanfic has Noodle Burger Boy pull a Heel–Face Turn and indicates Fred still thinks of him as a friend.
  • Hiro realizing he has to write his creative writing assignment about something he knows, all that while looking at a picture of him and Tadashi. The next day, he gives his assignment to Granville: "a story about a boy, his brother and a robot".

"City of Monsters, Part 1"

  • Karmi honestly accepting Hiro's help and how well they work together.
  • Karmi telling Hiro she is sad to what happened to his older brother and admits she also looked up to him.
  • Hiro rushing to Karmi's aid when she calls him from SFIT, and reassuring her when she's visibly scared and tells them they make a good team.

"City of Monsters, Part 2"

  • Hiro's "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight with Karmi. After a season and a half of Snark-to-Snark Combat, he smiles at her warmly and clearly tells her that he cares about her.
    Hiro: Karmi! You can fight this. Because... you're the smartest person I know. You're... my friend. I care about you.
    • The best part is that he wins. Karmi comes back to her senses, protects Hiro from the hulked-out Chris, and Diane, who effortlessly mind-controls all the other monsters in this episode, can't regain control of her.
  • Also counts as a Moment of Awesome, but Karmi fighting off Chris to protect Hiro. She spent one season and a half mocking and insulting him, and in that moment, Karmi goes into Unstoppable Rage and does not stop fighting Chris even if he has the upper hand. She was ready to die to protect her new friend.
  • As Karmi turns back into a human, Hiro catches her and envelopes in a hug.
  • At the end of the episode, Hiro firmly includes Karmi into his group of friends. Turns into a tearjerker when he finds out she's gone, and back into heartwarming when he is shown reading her new fanfic chapter about his team and hitting a 'like'. Remember his previous attitude towards her writing? It's possible that he still doesn't like the fanfic itself, but does this just to make her happy.

"Mini-Maximum Trouble"

  • Mini-Max being turned back to normal and his heartwarming reunion with Fred:
    Fred: Please tell me you're not gonna drop any more heavy stuff on me.
    Mini-Max: Hearty chuckle! Of course not! You are my best friend!
    [Mini-Max hugs Fred, who starts gross sobbing and his nose leaks]
    Baymax: Would you like a tissue?
    Fred: No, thanks.
    [Mini-Max blows Fred's tears and nose fluids with his fan]
    Fred: [smiles] Glad to have you back, Mini-Max!

"El Fuego"

  • Baymax comforting Hiro, who's upset over El Fuego (indirectly) calling Tadashi's work "junk", by giving him a gentle hug from behind.
  • Even if Hiro gets carried away, his motive to defend Tadashi's honor and legacy is too sweet.
  • Baymax putting himself between Hiro-as-Baymax and El Fuego. True to himself, Baymax will always be ready to discard his own safety if it means he can protect Hiro from being hurt.
    • And if not from Fred, Baymax could've suffered serious damage from El Fuego's "power hug". But it's what Baymax is made for. To care about and protect his patients, at the cost of his own life.
  • Even if El Fuego used it at his advantage, Baymax was still willing to comfort El Fuego over his (supposed) insecurities related to his anger issues.
  • The ending: Hiro and Baymax play wrestling and Hiro laughing happily as he jumps on Baymax's belly. Awww!
    Baymax: This is safe. Because it is fake!
    • Right before, Hiro admits he shouldn't have let his emotions get the better of him and Baymax says that Tadashi's work is now his, before giving him another hug.

"The Globby Within"

  • Just how happy Globby has become ever since he pulled his Heel–Face Turn.
  • The heroes promise Globby to save him, and he gives them a huge hug.
    Globby: What did I ever do to deserve great friends like you?
    Wasabi: Oh, I don't know. Maybe saved millions of people in San Fransokyo?

"The Present"

  • The flashback of Hiro and Tadashi in the beginning. Tadashi shows his snow machine to a young curious Hiro, and accepts feedback from his younger genius brother.
    • Young Hiro smiling and laughing at the snowflakes falling on his bed.
    • When the machine goes haywire, Tadashi jumps Hiro to safety in order to protect him from the snow disaster to come. Shows that Tadashi always did put others first, especially his younger brother.
  • When Hiro sadly looks at Tadashi's stocking, remembering it's the first Christmas without him, Aunt Cass tries to cheer him up.
  • The team assuring Hiro they're there for him if he needs them.
  • Professor Granville catches up to Hiro after he leaves his exam, and expresses compassion over how it must be a difficult time for him this Christmas. Then she bends down, and hugs him. It's especially heartwarming when you remember how she hated hugs in her introduction, and how her relationship towards Hiro evolved.
    Hiro: [smiles, hugs her back] Thank you, Professor Granville.
    Professor Granville: [offers a candy cane to Hiro with a smile] In the spirit of the season.
    Hiro: Merry Christmas.
  • Globby and Felony Carl decorating their apartment and baking gingerbread cookies together.
  • When Krei says he never got to celebrate Christmas due to his neglectful parents and never met Santa or tasted eggnog, Hiro and Fred have Baymax dress up as Santa and Krei's inner child comes out gleefully and vows to preserve the magic of Christmas by sending Judy home and remembers her name right this time!!
  • Judy inviting Krei to her nana's for Christmas after learning he has no family to celebrate it with. Even if she acts annoyed over him saying yes (and wished he had said no), she cares enough about her boss to ask him over in the first place. The ending shows Krei joyfully greeting Judy's nana.
  • When Hiro realizes the gift he lost was from Tadashi, he's completely in shock and devastated. The team shows him their support in their headquarters, with Honey Lemon giving Hiro a cup of tea and Fred expressing regret over accidentally switching their bags and unintentionally causing the gift to be lost. Hiro then tells Fred not to apologize as he is to blame for taking the gift when he shouldn't have in the first place.
  • The team later helps Hiro getting the present back by gearing up into their suits and crashing into Steamer's lair, where they surprisingly find out Steamer invited recurring villains over for a Christmas party. Before anyone can attack, Steamer stops everyone and tells them Christmas is supposed to be a day of peace and invites the heroes to his party. Sure it doesn't last long, but the thought is there.
  • The reason why the peace wasn't kept for long between the heroes and the villains? Mr. Sparkles steals Hiro's gift for no other reason than being a jerk, and at that moment, Honey Lemon gets mad and starts to attack. Honey really sees Hiro as her younger brother, so there was no way she was gonna let Sparkles get away with stealing Tadashi's gift from Hiro.
  • When Hiro discovers the present was the snow machine, Baymax shows a video of Tadashi happily telling Baymax he can't wait to give the gift to Hiro and that the next Christmas will be a white Christmas. Turns to Tearjerker when you realize Tadashi didn't live to see his white Christmas.
  • The end of the episode where the team looks in awe at the snowfall from the sky thanks to Tadashi's machine.
  • The ending's postcards showing Aunt Cass, Hiro and the gang taking a selfie, Krei and Judy greeting her nana, Felony Carl and Globby decorating gingerbread cookies and finally, a picture of Aunt Cass, Tadashi and Hiro smiling at the camera while "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" plays.

"Hiro the Villain"

  • Callaghan makes it crystal clear that he's not bitter about Big Hero 6 stopping him in the movie, and is grateful to them for saving his daughter. He calls them concerned citizens, reminds Chief Cruz that they saved two lives that night, keeps their secrets, and says Chief Cruz is wrong about them.
    • He mentions Big Hero 6 saved his daughter and Alistair Krei. Whether or not Callaghan has forgiven him is up in the air, but he, at the very least, no longer wants him dead for his mistake.
  • When Hiro encounters Momokase in his garage, his first words are to threaten her if she hurt Aunt Cass.
  • It's revealed that the reason that Momokase blackmailed Hiro was to get his help in order to steal swords from Yama. Said swords are tragic keepsakes from her father, who gave them up to protect his family from danger, and Momokase sought them out because they were all that she has to remember them from. Hiro admits he can relate.
    • Adding to this, Momokase expresses genuine respect for Hiro's intelligence, even if she says he's wasting his talents on being a hero.
    • Finally, Momokase not only keeps her word to Hiro but also gives the team a chance to escape by leading the police away from them. She leaves the team reassuring Hiro she won't hurt them this time, and calls Hiro "partner" with a sincere voice and smile. This is especially poignant given how she had previously called him "partner" in a taunting manner, her tone here shows how she has come to respect him.
  • The rest of the team are immediately understanding of Hiro when he explains why he helped Momokase, and are grateful to him for putting himself at risk for their safety.

"Portal Enemy"

  • When Megan confronts Hiro over finding out he's in Big Hero 6, she's initially mad at him for breaking her trust in him, but gives him a chance to convince her that the city needs the group. She then becomes worried when she sees that Hiro is putting his own life at risk for everyone's safety. In the end, after having a heart-to-heart with him, she's convinced to become their Secret-Keeper.
  • A minor moment, but when shadowing the group, Megan gets to fly on Baymax with Hiro. She's at first a little scared but eventually starts to enjoy the ride.
  • The rest of the team are all concerned for Hiro in that he might get lost in the portal, and initially offer to take his place. Once Hiro expresses disappointment that Sirque escaped, they reassure him that the fact he saved the city from the unstable portal is all that matters.

"Fred The Fugitive"

  • In a Black Comedy moment, GoGo suggests they should just get a new Lizard Guy. Then, she explains herself:
    GoGo: Just trying to lighten the mood. It's what Fred would want.
  • At the end, Fred arrives at HQ early in the morning; where the rest of the team warmly greet him. Fred is praised for his selfless bravery earlier on, and have breakfast Noodleburgers in his honor. He is quite touched.

"Major Blast"

  • Mrs. Frederickson's reason for Major Blast: to help her husband, then her son, become a better superhero.

"Fear Not"

  • Wasabi's daydream of becoming a successful SFIT professor. The song "No Substitute for You" definitely counts.
  • Wasabi's friends trying many ways to help him overcome his stage fright. They don't work, but he appreciates their support.

"Legacies"

  • Hiro's speech about Tadashi at the graduation ceremony. Just the whole thing.
    Hiro: Uh, hello? My name is Hiro Hamada. Tadashi Hamada was my big brother and I’m here to accept his degree on his behalf. I used to think that having a legacy just meant that people remembered you, but now I realize it’s more than that. It’s when the things that are important to you live on in the people who loved you. And what was most important to my big brother was helping others. He believed that there’s good in this world and that it’s worth fighting for. He knew that everyone was capable of being someone’s hero. The last words Tadashi said to me were ‘Someone has to help’. Even though he’s gone, Tadashi’s still helping me every day. Tadashi wants us all to help and I’m going to try. And I hope you’ll join me. Thank you.
    • During said speech, Karmi is shown watching the speech on her computer, clearly happy for her friend.

    Season 3 

The Hyper-Potamus Pizza-Party-Torium

  • When Hiro gets upset over his friends potentially leaving the city, Aunt Cass comforts him by saying that there will come a day where he will leave the house, and even if she'll be sad, she'll know he'll always have a special place in her heart, and it's the same thing for his friends. Then she, Hiro and Baymax share a family hug. Aww!
  • After the whole team save the day, Hiro and Fred are assured by Wasabi, Honey Lemon, and Gogo that no matter where they are, they'll always be with them, and come when they're needed.

Mayor for a Day

  • Supersonic Sue and Stu's relationship keeps warming hearts in that episode. After Stu brings back Richardson, Sue gives him a bodysuit that she knitted herself. Stu can be seen smiling and rubbing his new comfortable suit in the background.
    • Just how patient and kind Sue, who normally is such a jerkass to everyone, is towards her grandson.
  • Seeing Fred being mayor for a day after Richardson's crimes makes him "disqualified". Even if it lasted a couple of minutes, Fred was still extremely happy to have his portrait next to his father's in the city hall (and also make kaiju transportation a thing).
    • It takes a double heartwarming meaning when you see Mr. Frederickson's portrait: it's his first cameo since Season 3 started, where Stan Lee passed away while it was still in production and couldn't record any lines before his death. Seeing how the series doesn't forget his character or legacy is very touching.

The Dog Craze of Summer

  • Dogs lovers will be squeeing the whole episode: Granville's dogs are simultaneously hilarious and adorable.
  • Seeing how Granville is attached to her dogs. She considers them her "babies".
  • Curie tackling GoGo to give her dog kisses. Honey Lemon, happy to be looking after her, hugs her back with a "yay!"
  • Fermi reuniting with his favorite toy, Mr. Pip.

Trading Chips

  • When Mini-Max gets upset over Crushroom calling him a "baby", Fred comforts him by giving him a piggy back ride.
  • Hiro and Aunt Cass working together to get Mochi out of the vent. They both are so attached to their cat.
  • Seeing how Aunt Cass worries and cares for Mochi.
  • Fred comforting Mini-Max (in Baymax's body) when he doubts himself again. Mini-Max then thanks him by giving him a (somewhat bone-crushing due to having Baymax's strenght) hug.
  • Mini-Max telling Crushroom that he isn't alone and has friends to back him up. Fred then comes to his aid with his invisible Fredmeleon suit.
    • Crushroom then answers the same thing as Noodle Burger Boy saves her with his go-kart before she can get stopped.

Mini Noodle Burger Max

  • Just the fact that Noodle Burger Boy is ready to put aside all differences with Baymax and Mini-Max so they can all save their families. They all make a pretty good team against Baron Von Steamer.
    • It takes a more tearjerking turn when you remember that Noodle Burger Boy lost his previous family. This time, he won't let his new sisters be taken away from him: if it takes working with his enemies so they're safe, he'll take that chance without hesitating.
  • In the beginning of the episode, a low-battery Baymax hugs Hiro and calls him "his special boy".
  • When the animatronic sisters and Big Hero 6 gets stuck in a cave-in, they agree to put their differences aside to find a way out.
  • The instant the signal gets lost with the team, Baymax's first reflex is to get to Hiro and the others as soon as possible, despite Basemax's protests that going on a low battery is dangerous.
  • Also counts as a tearjerker: the last thing Baymax sees before his battery dies? Hiro. Just reminds you how close they are and how Baymax sees Hiro as his primary patient and companion.
    • What Baymax tells Noodle Burger Boy when all hope seems lost is also very poignant:
    "I'm Hiro's companion. He is my companion. Help me, save my family..."
  • Noodle Burger Boy understanding how Baymax looks out for his family just like him and gives his power to Baymax and Mini-Max so they can defeat Steamer and save both their families.
  • Low-battery Noodle Burger Boy acting like a Sentimental Drunk, telling his sisters to hold back their attacks on Big Hero 6 and getting them in a family hug. Even Hangry Panda, who Hates Being Touched, can't help but eventually melt into the hug.
    Hangry Panda: [surprisingly soft-spoken] Aww, you guys...

A Friendly Face

  • The bunny shuttle in general. Not only is she as sweet and positive as Honey Lemon (even having her voice!), she's absolutely adorable of how you imagine a bunny bus to me.
  • The bunny shuttle giving a pep talk to the evil mascots, making them realize how Noodle Burger Boy is a good leader and making them apologize. She ends up joining them in the end due to her optimism, but it's the thought that counts!
    • Noodle Burger Boy being called "Noodle Burger Bro" by his sisters.
  • After having no choice but to give a sad "anti-pep" to the evil mascots via the bunny shuttle, Honey Lemon feels all upside down and is on the verge of tears. Baymax consoles her by showing her a hologram of a happy puppy.
  • Honey Lemon begging Krei not to destroy the Bunny Shuttle, and "adopting" her and bringing her to her and GoGo's apartment where they have a party.

Big Chibi 6

  • Even if Hiro gets embarrassed about being portrayed as Karmi's boyfriend in her chibi series, he smiles and expresses relief that she is doing okay, considering everything she went through in "City of Monsters" (which was her last appearance, not counting her cameo from "Legacies").
  • Hiro and Karmi's reunion. They are both so happy to finally reunite after the disastrous last time they saw each other, which was at Sycorax. Karmi apologizes for being out of touch and was about to go into a heart-to-heart chat... Until Hardlight kills the moment.
  • When Karmi is about to save the day, she tells "Captain Cutie" to ttake care of Hardlight as she knows how to handle the chibi army. Hiro smiles and tells her he trusts her.
  • The entire ending. Hiro and Karmi almost kiss... until Karmi stops "Captain Cutie", basically confessing that she's in love with someone else "who doesn't know"... that someone being Hiro's real identity. Behind his armor, Hiro gets giddily flustered. Their interactions are too adorable (and fuel for the Karmiro shippers).

Cobra and Mongoose

  • Before going off to face Cobra, Heathcliff makes Fred promise to not follow him, to keep him from getting hurt. Fred follows him anyway.
  • The photos of Heathcliff and a younger Fred are adorable.

Better Off Fred

  • Olivia accepting a date with Fred after she accepts him for who he is, and regretting listening to Richardson.

Big Hero Battle

  • Honey tries to comfort Fred, who's mopey about 4 2 Sing "winning" the superhero-off, reminding him that, like the band have the mech dragon, they (Big Hero 6) have Mega-Max.
  • The episode ends with 4 2 Sing happily letting Wasabi join their performance.
    • In general, Wasabi seems to be at his happiest during his time with his favorite boy band.
    • If you pay close attention, you'll see Hiro smiling after Wasabi eagerly joins the dancing, while earlier, he was frowning in exasperation.

GoGo The Woweroo

  • Initially reluctant, GoGo bonds with the little kids attending Wendy Wower's show.

The New Nega-Globby

  • How close Honey Lemon and Globby have become.
  • There's also the reason that they want to release Nega-Globby from the Glob Vac; Globby's recent nightmares implied a psychic connection between the two monsters indicating that Nega-Globby had fallen into a deep depression because of his imprisonment.
  • How, even after Nega-Globy proceeded to tick off almost everyone in Big Hero 6 and nearly destroy the city again in a pet-peeve induced temper tantrum, Globby was still willing to give the formerly villainous monster another chance.
    Globby: I know what it's like to feel alone. Nobody deserves that. There's a place for everyone, even Nega-Globby.

De-Based

  • How did Honey, Wasabi, and Go Go know that there was something wrong? When Fred stopped texting them every five minutes. Even though it was Played for Laughs, it's still quite heartwarming that they took this to mean that he and Hiro needed help.

The MiSFIT

Hiro: (after Rishi helps Hiro clobber the NBB family) Thanks for the assist, young citizen. With skills like yours, you must be a star student here at SFIT.
  • Hiro is able to say this despite all the lip that Rishi had given him earlier. It even sparks a genuine smile from Rishi.

  • When Wasabi gets anxious about returning to the Syrocax building, Fred lets him borrow a stress toy that looks like an anthropomorphic taco saying that "this helps me."
  • The Running Gag of Krei constantly jumping/landing into Baymax's arms is quite cute in a funny way. One scene in particular shows Baymax saving Krei from falling down an elevator shaft.
    Krei:(after landing in Baymax's arms) Oh! Please don't ever let me go!
    Baymax:(pats Krei's head) There, there. You are safe now.
    • Aawww...
