Many fans will tell you that as cheesy as the idea of guys in rubber suits beating the tar out of each other on a miniature set is, a franchise based almost entirely around this is still very capable of giving viewers the warm and fuzzies.

- The fact that the Showa Ultras' reaction to their entire species being subjected to a Mass Super-Empowering Event that gave them incredible power was to collectively choose to protect peace in the universe and protect the innocent from harm.
- Some series are just loaded with it, notably Ultraman Cosmos and Ultraman X, both of which share the theme of the importance of co-existence.
- Seiji and Yuko's reunion and Ultraman 80's reunion with his students in Ultraman Mebius. The fact that they brought all the original actors back to reprise their parts makes it all the sweeter.
- Another classic example is Ultraman Max's 15th episode "Miracle of the Third Planet", where the invincible monster IF is defeated not with violence but by being transformed into a living orchestra when it hears the music of a blind little girl whose concert was ruined by IF's rampage. It's one of the most beautiful scenes in the entire franchise.
- "The Monster Graveyard" from Ultraman. One notable moment is when Hayata becomes Ultraman to hold a moment of silence for all the monsters he's killed. It hearkens back to a classic line by Eiji Tsuburaya's frequent collaborator Ishiro Honda."Monsters are born too tall, too strong, too heavy — that is their tragedy."
