  • The end of the flashback sequence between the brothers Figaro in Final Fantasy VI. "To Figaro!"
  • The moment when Setzer, following a reflection on his relationship with Darill and her disappearance, boards Darill's airship with Celes and the Figaro brothers in tow, kicking off "Searching for Friends" as the new overworld theme, giving a much needed reprieve to the despair resulting from Kefka's destruction from the world.
  • The scene in Mobliz where Terra finally rejoins the party. Turns out the orphans don't care if Terra is an Esper or a monster. She's still their "Mama". And then there is Terra's cry of "I know what it means to love!"
    • Which segues nicely into a Moment of Awesome where she single-handedly does what your entire team could not (which is at least two others).
  • After Celes attempts suicide in the World of Ruin, she washes up on the beach and sees a pigeon. She tells the pigeon to leave her alone because she's already lost all hope. Then she notices a blue bandanna wrapped around the pigeon's wound and asks the pigeon if the person who wrapped its wound is still alive. Then Celes realizes that Locke is still alive and that becomes motivation enough for Celes to leave Solitary Island, find her friends, and stop Kefka.
    • This is even more heartwarming if you remember her line ("I'm not some love-starved twit!") from earlier in the game right after she joins your party, and realize how much she's defrosted since that point.
  • Locke and Celes shared ending. Locke's greatest failure was not being able to save Rachel when the bridge collapsed or when the Empire attacked Kohlingen and killed her. Cue The Dulcinea Effect. As the party escapes from Kefka's tower, Celes drops her bandanna and runs back for it. The floor begins to collapse and Celes hangs on the edge. Locke hurries to her and manages to save the woman he loves for his My Greatest Second Chance.
  • When Edgar and Sabin are reunited.
    • Especially at the end of the scene in Figaro Castle when you take them both there, and you learn just how much Edgar loves his younger brother: literally throwing away his own chance at freedom by rigging a coin toss against himself, taking on the entirety of the burden neither of them wanted to bear and letting Sabin go
  • It is impossible not to shed at least one sentimental tear during the song Celes sings in the opera scene... or any time that song is reprised, really.
    • It's almost hard NOT to. It's HER theme tune.
    • This troper is more affected by the other version of the tune ("Celes' Theme"). The main melody is good enough but what really sold it was the arpeggios before the repeat, complete with a string backing which sounds like right out of The Beatles' Abbey Road.
  • Watching Cyan interact with his family in the Wrexsoul. You see how much he really did love his wife and kid. They even come back from beyond the grave to help him move on... this is on top of how he masqueraded as an enemy soldier for at least a year to keep a girl's heart from breaking.
    • Goes straigh to heartwarmingly-awesome immediately afterwards: with the loving spirits of his family at his side in the form of the Aura sword and his own spirit clear of all doubt, Cyan instantly unlocks all of his Sword Techniques. One of which instantly slays any and all enemies. At this point he is, as Japanese culture put it, ikkitousen: one swordsman to match a thousand, or, put more simply, a warrior without equal.
  • Strago and Relm reuniting is equal parts heartwarming and funny.
