Heartwarming / Overly Sarcastic Productions

Together at last
  • The ending of "Eros and Psyche" is one big collective heartwarm. 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 "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.
    Chang'e: [leaning out the window] Hey! I finally figured out how cooking works!
    Hou Yi: [hunting birds] Nice!
  • 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 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 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.
  • Tam Lin 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 ambiguous No Ending, the reader is free to assume the yokai was touched by his devotion, and they did have a Happily Ever After. 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: he starts crying and bear-hugs Odysseus, giving an adorably sweet cry of "DAAAAAAAAD!"
  • 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 "prioritize the baby".

How well does it match the trope?
