Heartwarming / The Last Days of FOXHOUND

  • Just after meeting the ninja, Berthold is severely electrocuted and almost dies. Sniper Wolf petting him when he regains consciousness is just the sweetest thing.
    • Mantis, of all people really sells the moment.
    Octopus: You mean he's... like... a vegetable now?
    Mantis: I think more accurately, he's like an animal now.
    Octopus: Don't be a dick, man, Berthold was one of us!
    Mantis: He's not dead. And given what happened to him that's fucking amazing. And the person it'd make the most difference to won't know the difference. Be happy for Wolf.
  • Sniper Wolf giving Liquid the dog tags of his "father" after he regained his body.
  • Coming from the two most otherwise despicable members of the group, Ocelot and Mantis' genuine offer of companionship to The Sorrow and offer of their library is surprisingly heartwarming, especially Ocelot point that Sorrow is no weirder than any of the others and could belong with them. It's particularly interesting for the offer to come from Ocelot, as The Sorrow is a being he has no possible means of controlling (and who could have easily known things that might have been detrimental to his plans), and for Mantis - who would usually rather kill people than connect with them - to jump in to help convince him.
    • Double heartwarming considering the Sorrow is Ocelot's father.
      • Fridge Brilliance kicks in when you realize that they never figured out if Ocelot figured out The Boss was his mother. If he did, it would have taken him seconds to realize who his father was, so he may have actually known and just wanted his father around. His dedication to The Boss’s legacy certainly implies she meant as much to him as everyone else who was important in her life, yet he was only ever antagonistic with her in canon. Why he’d care so much makes no sense unless he knew the truth.

  • In the later chapters, after Sniper Wolf's brain checks out to lunch due to sleep deprivation, she heads to Russia to assassinate Sergei Gurlukovich. Ocelot makes the slightest suggestion that they let the Russians handle tracking her down, which they would do lethally. Liquid lets Ocelot know what he thinks.
    Liquid: I don't think I heard that correctly, Ocelot. In fact I know I didn't, because it sounded like you were suggesting we let them kill Wolf.
    Ocelot: Boss, we need Gurlukovich more than-
    (Liquid grabs his collar and yanks him forward)
    Liquid: We don't play that game. Understand me? Not ever.
  • The scene where Psycho Mantis and Revolver Ocelot are trying to replicate the scene years ago when Ocelot was playing Russian Roulette by juggling three loaded guns, and The Boss grabs the last gun and fires it. Both of them are trying to find which gun would go off, to no avail. It's pretty funny, but the heartwarming part is that despite being mortal enemies, Mantis and Ocelot still were willing to sit down and work together to solve the problem.

How well does it match the trope?
