Heartwarming / Two Saiyans Play

Go To

  • If you pay attention you begin to notice that Vegeta actually has some Character Development in these Let's Plays. In their first Let's Play of Orcs Must Die! he's very reluctant to play games with Nappa and states that he thinks that fun is for the weak. As time goes on he starts to enjoy the games more and more and even has a couple of Pet the Dog moments with Nappa. Two of the biggest examples of this are the end of the Killing Floor Let's Play, where they go back to playing Magicka and Vegeta admits that Nappa picks the best games (in his own way) and SimCity in which Vegeta is stated to have bought the game himself.
    • Another example is in Castle Crashers. You can tell Vegeta was having a blast and just not admitting it.
      Nappa: This is fun right?
      Vegeta: It's... it's a thing.
      • That actually seems to be a Running Gag in TSP. At the start of the video Vegeta will claim that he couldn't possibly have any fun with the game in question and almost always ends up enjoying himself.
    • And then they play Divekick. Vegeta is clearly enjoying himself from the moment they start.

    • There's a brief but touching moment in Dead Sky where Nappa tries to help Vegeta get over his fear of worms. He doesn't succeed, but it's the thought that counts.
    • The fact that they're working together as a team for Portal 2 without many complaints is pretty sweet.
      • When they accidentally disintegrate a turret by carrying it through an Emancipation Grill they both sound genuinely upset about it.
      • In Part 5 Vegeta admits a very rare moment he's thankful that Nappa went to college.
      • Nappa's singsong "We can do anything by working with each other!"
      • TSP Portal 2 ends on a very sweet note when GLADOS comments that the two have become "quite the team. Extremely close."
    • By the time he plays Broforce, Vegeta seems to have accepted it. He then goes on to thoroughly enjoy the game.
    Vegeta: I have no idea what I'm looking at. And I'm okay with that!
    • Another instance of him enjoying a game by himself is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim where he is happy to play a game where he can just act like himself.

    • And of course, Metal Gear Rising has blood, gore, and being a badass, guess who enjoys it? In fact, Vegeta actually completes MGR.
  • With every horror game he plays, Krillin slowly becomes more and more confident in the face of terror. This might reflect his pluckier attitude during the Android arc, seeing as the Let's Plays appear to take place before that time.
    • Krillin's apology to his line gun in Dead Space part 24, Exit the Leviathan.
    • And then there's part 34 when he upgrades to the Level 5 suit. Each suit has more "ribs" on it.
      Krillin: For her fuckin' pleasure. Aww yeah!
    • Krillin's triumphant laughter as he escapes Mount Massive Asylum in Outlast Whistleblower.
    • At the very end of Outlast Whistleblower, when the man tells the player that Murkoff will come after their loved ones, Krillin responds with, "Let me tell you something about the people that I love. They can destroy planets. I don't really think this corporation can do anything to them." There was something about that line (maybe Krillin flat out calling the Z Warriors "the people he loves" combined with the pure confidence in his voice that they could take anything thrown at them) that, even though it was only in the context of a Let's Play, is still extremely heartwarming.

    • And of course the foreshadowing of his future relationship with Android 18 who destroyed the planet with 17 in one timeline.
    • His confidence is also shown in the title of the series. At the start it's "Vegeta Makes Krillin Play", but then changed to "Krillin Plays".
    • Seeing Krillin really get into the role of being a toddler in Among the Sleep, from playing with the toys to how he reacted to the mother character. It'll be interesting to see his later reaction when it's revealed what the child's home life was like.
      • Even after the mother hits him he doesn't hate her. He even tells her to take care of herself before he leaves.
    • For most of the beginning of Among the Sleep, Krillin has been distrustful of Teddy. So when he saves Teddy, and then thanks Teddy after he gives him some genuinely helpful advice, it's pretty sweet to see them building this partnership.
      • Culminates in Krillin apologizing to Teddy and being devastated when the monster rips Teddy away from him sans arm.
    • Vegeta may hate his Dad but don't you dare talk shit about his Mom!
  • Vegeta playing Surgeon Simulator, strangely enough. It's like there's a part of him that cares about people and really wants to do good for them. Even if he's not actually very good at it.
    • He even strokes the patients' faces and talks to them in a soothing voice.
  • Krillin and Nappa play P.T.. They seem to get along pretty well. It helps that Nappa is friendly and easygoing.
  • In part 13 of playing Soma, Krillin is pretty deeply freaked out by how casual Katherine is about killing sentient robots and harvesting their parts for her own needs, and gives her a massive What the Hell, Hero? and subsequently decides to play in a way so he avoids killing any other robots.
    • Part 22 has Krillin encounter, and subsequently Mercy Kill, the last living human on Earth. He sounds legitimately choked up at first, and ends the video immediately after Lindwall's death.
    • In Part 23, Krillin gets the opportunity to kill the WAU. He refuses. The reasoning behind it is the WAU has the right to live as any sentient life does, and that it thought it was just protecting itself, and following its programming.
  • In part 5 of Outlast, Krillin is saved from being strangled by one inmate when another inmate hurls his attacker over a railing. He just sounds so relieved.
    Krillin: Thank you, helpful psychopath!
  • Vegeta's playthrough of Undertale has its share of heartwarming moments with Toriel that baffle him, until it turns TearJerker.
    Vegeta: A room, a home, a bed? I-I haven’t had a bed since I was a kid.
    Vegeta: What’s the purpose of giving me these things?! I just want to l-leave...(hesitant)..go back to wherever-the-hell-I-came-from...
    • At a certain point, Vegeta has the option of asking Toriel if he can go home... but he doesn't because he doesn't want to hurt her!
    Vegeta: When can I go—aw, fuck it; nothing...
  • Apparently Vegeta enjoyed Superhot so much that he wanted Goku to play it!
  • In Layers of Fear, Krillen is freaked out by the sight of rats throwing themselves into a fire, and tries to stop them and talk them out of it.
  • When playing HunieCam Studio, Gokū is extremely friendly, supportive, and caring towards the girls that he's unknowingly pimping, doing things like trying to train them and trying to give one of them a break at a motel (where she ends up contracting gonorrhea, but it's the thought that counts).
  • When playing Five Nights at Freddy's, Gokū's motivation for watching out for the animatronics is the idea that they will steal all the food in the pizzeria, but what makes it heartwarming is that he immediately follows up this statement by saying that when he rescues the food, he intends to share it with them because sharing is caring.
  • Gokū ignored the orders of the supervisor in Papers, Please because he thought everyone (except that "rude" bus citizen) should be allowed in.
  • Goku in Surgeon Simulator Anniversary Edition is doing it all under the delusion that he's helping Chi-Chi. It also features what might possibly be the first time Goku ever calls Chi-Chi his wife and admits he loves her, albeit while he's high on hallucinogens.
  • While playing the Final Fantasy XV demo, Vegeta mentions that his dad never played with him. Maybe that's why he's nicer to Kid Trunks in Super.
  • Gohan seemingly gets back at his dad by misleading him about Inside. He feels bad about it at the end, though, and is more helpful the second time around.
  • Krillin likes the story of Hansel and Gretel. He makes himself sad because he can't remember his parents, but he decides the monks had their reasons for not telling him.
  • During their playthrough of Shift Happens, it seems like Goku and Vegeta are actually starting to grow together some. Of particular note is a moment where, due to the cooperative nature of the game, Vegeta has to go onto a platform where Goku could very easily let him fall into the water and drown. Vegeta actually admits to having trust issues and is certain Goku'll drop him, but after Goku reassures Vegeta that he's not like Nappa and wouldn't let Vegeta fall on purpose, Vegeta follows through.
  • Vegeta's reason for playing Job Simulator: Bulma complained he wasn't pulling his weight, so he's using the game to learn about Earth jobs. For comparison, the last time she asked him to help support her and the baby, his response was to leave.
  • In a way, Vegeta defending Alice in Detroit: Become Human, rather than leaving her to die, he controls Kara and kills Todd instead. He also gets pissed off over dying as Markus, demanding to know why they killed him.
  • Vegeta's literal Pet the Dog moment in Red Dead Redemption II, especially him commenting on the game being a good game as he does so.
  • Vegeta remembers Toriel: as soon as he starts playing Deltarune, his voice breaks as he sees her.
    • Even better, he doesn't remember her as "Toriel".
    Vegeta: ''... I already know my"
    (Toriel appears)

How well does it match the trope?
