 Spoony: You are not stupid for seeking people you identify with. You are not an idiot for finding friends and feeling like you have somewhere you belong. Your particular brand of happiness might be pretty fucked-up, but you're not fucked-up for pursuing that happiness. As long as you're not hurting anyone, wave that freak flag high. Final Fantasy VIII may suck, and you may suck for liking it, but I'm the captain of this suck-filled leaking failboat, and I'm not going to have some jerkoff movie critic who's never cracked a Player's Handbook in his life call my homies STUPID.

  • The numerous well wishes on his forum after he revealed his heart condition which prevents him from doing too much strenuous activity. Many went on that they were perfectly fine with him taking time off from his videos, in contrast to the usual Fan Dumb who keep complaining that they come out too slowly.
    • Although that didn't stop quite a few trolling idiots from complaining... although this was followed by probably one of the only times a majority of his fanbase did something unanimously in trying to throttle them.
  • The opening of his Q&A panel at the 2010 ScrewAttack Gaming Convention. If you've ever doubted the humility behind the man's caustic persona, look no further.
  • The moment in his commentary for the Highlander the Source review where he gushes over Freddie Mercury, and says if anyone out there can legitimately imitate his voice, they need to get into the music business right now. Especially since it comes shortly after his somber reflections on one of his fans committing suicide.
  • In the Final Fantasy X finale, he managed to talk Black Lantern Spoony out of a murderous rage by reminding him of why he started the site in the first place. Followed by trying to blow him up with a box of grenades, but still, the speech itself was legitimately "awww" inducing.

  "This isn't what we started reviewing games and movies for, this isn't what you started reviewing it for. We did this just to have some laughs, to make other people laugh. To share our experiences with bad movies and games. Not to hurt people, not to kill people and take over the world. I'd like to go back to that. You're right, what happened to you was wrong. That's why I'm glad you came down, because I was hoping after a good fight we could hash it out and... I could give you your christmas present at last."

    • And then he has the two of them be genetically merged rather than kill him.
  • In his 2/9/11 Wrestle! Wrestle! talking about a recent storyline on TNA Impact - discussing the impossibility of dragging your real children into a fictional storyline about your actual ongoing divorce and the hurt that this traumatic event does to kids. This troper's parents split when she was little and Spoony encapsulated her feelings on the thought of using children going through that kind of emotional pain for other people's entertainment perfectly. For that he deserves a giant hug!
  • Towards the end of February 2011, Spoony anounced that all future videos were to be delayed due to a personal matter. When he revealed what the matter was in a thread on his forums in order to stop any rumours from spreading, nearly every response was offering him support & telling him to take as much time as he needed.
    • Plus, his refusal to give details on how his and Scarlett's breakup happened, as she's sure to have her own version and he doesn't want his fans to get angry and mass-flame her.
  • At PAX East, Teddie cheers up a down in the dumps Spoony. Awww.
    • Also, at the end of his Magic: The Gathering/Pokemon Online video, Spoony laments that he's probably too old for the Pokemon franchise at this point, before saying that he knows one little gamer who will be looking forward to the game, whilst showing footage of a little girl happily playing the game.
  • Somehow, the fact that he still gets choked up by Kodo's death in The Beastmaster is very touching.
    • Equally touching is his joy at seeing Podo's babies at the end of the film.
  • In his commentary for his April Fools Day review of Zombie 5, he tells the story of "the time he got mad at Doug Walker." Yes, a story about how he was mad at Doug managed to be a heartwarming moment.
  • The story about the kid in the theater during X-Men: First Class who was fascinated by the promise of "4D" in the new Spy Kids film.
  • After a rather harsh report on Nintendo in one of his E3 2011 videos many of Spoony's fans felt personally insulted. About a day later Spoony held a live stream so he could talk to the fans and better explain himself as well as apologize for hurting people's feelings. What followed was an hour and a half of Spoony talking with his fans, debating whether or not Zelda has gone through any real changes and answering questions even though he admitted on the stream that he was still really busy and stressed.
  • Anytime his fellow contributors start talking about puppehs, he joins in. It's quite adorable.
  • It was sweet of him to host the Cinema Snob's videos on his site after the Snob's channel got taken down on Youtube.
  • In his vlog on his trip to Vienna, he overflows with gratitude for the convention-goers who made gifts for him, and insists we don't have to thank him for coming to the conventions, rather, he thanks us for coming to see him.
  • In his most recent vlog, Spoony tells us that he has a new doggie! The dog's name was Wishbone, but he didn't like it, so he asks the fans to name the dog (they chose Oreo). All the while he's playing with the dog, letting her sit on his lap, and even playing a bit of Fetch with her.
    • Doubly Heartwarming because if you know a bit about Spoony's life outside of reviewing crappy games and movies, he doesn't have it easy. So seeing him getting something in his life that brings him utmost joy makes you feel happy for the guy.
    • Watch it for yourself here.
  • His very simple point about how messed up the relationship between Edward and Bella is.

  You shouldn't have to beg for love and if you do, it ain't love.

  • In a recent blog he explains to his fans that the reason why he's been so slow on making new videos is because he was recently diagnosed with depression and that it's been interfering with his work. His fandom responded by telling him that they hope he gets well soon and that they wish the best for him.
    • During the end credits of his Skullduggery review - his comeback review after sticking to v-logs and other non-review work due to the above reasons - he includes the message "Special thanks to all the fans for all your patience and understanding. You brought me back, and you keep me going." It's obvious that he cares for his fans, and they care for him - it's great.
  • His response to one fan who's been going through a tough time with medical problems (some of which Spoony also has) and offering to have a Skype call with him.
  • Linkara and Jew Wario sticking with him for 90 minutes so he has someone to rant about Breaking Dawn with.
  • This video a tribute has never been more touching
  • Bit of a weird one, but in his livestream of the DOS game "Castles", the game gives him a moral choice over whether to let his brother (and former enemy) Prince Arthur return to the country and forgive him (or HAVE HIM MURDERED!). Spoony replaces the name in the in-game dialogue with "Prince Miles" (his Real Life brother) and then immediately forgives him and lets him come home.
  • These Twitter posts. Oreo is officially a Loyal Animal Companion.
  • Spoony playing with Oreo while dressed like a Jedi.
    • Really, most anything that involves Oreo. She's practically Heartwarming incarnate
  • In his "Top 11 Spoony Moments of 2011" video, he talks about that while his enjoyment of Reb Brown films is partially in an ironic, So Bad It's Good way, sometimes it is also genuine and he believes that Reb could have made it big as a mainstream action star if he'd had more lucky breaks.
  • Two things at the end of the Ultima 8 review. First the obvious Oreo vs Headless post credits scene, which Spoony calls "the most adorable thing I've ever seen." And something small you probably wouldn't notice: he's got a pair of plush Zero Punctuation Imps on his bookshelf, merchandise from Yahtzee's show, the person who once called Spoony his favorite internet personality. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside to think about.
  • Oreo now has her own Twitter account... so far it's basically been 'Oreo' tweeting in Lolcat speak. It is quite possibly one of the cutest things ever.
  • During his commentaries for The Clones Of Bruce Lee and "Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead's Revenge", he states that tracking them down are not worth the viewer's time and money - the film is largely boring and he cut it down to the funny bits, and the game is notoriously bad (as seen in the video) and would likely not work on modern computers. He really cares about his audience - he doesn't want them to suffer to his extent.
  • His happiness at seeing Burton for the first time. He's concerned over him, but just pleased to have his friend back and tells him that the show isn't the same without him. It's adorable.
  • His genuine praise for the climactic concert scene in Final Fantasy X-2. He likes the music, if the lyrics are a bit poorly translated, and felt far more emotionally involved in the flashbacks of Shuyin and Lenne than the love story between Tidus and Yuna in the original game. He makes the comment that he has to find something about the scene to nitpick at so he can complain, and all he comes up with is the rhythm minigame prior to the scene because it involves Yuna dancing even though she doesn't dance during the concert.
  • This tweet is on par with Dr. Insano declaring his love for his pink, freakish, orb-shaped son.
  • The update where he talks about Justin Carmical's death, at the bottom of the page has a photo of him, Noah, and WebVideo/AngryJoe Joe.
    • The end of his next video, Lethal Games, also featured a moment where Spoony took Justin's "Jew Wario" hat, looked to the camera, placed it on his chair, and walked away SilenceIsGolden without a word. Doubles as a TearJerker.
    • The fact that the hat now has a place of honor on Noah's shelves, and is in full view of all his reviews now.
    • The fact that, unlike Linkara and Bennett the Sage, he never got rid of the hat, even after certain...allegations came to light. In spite of what Justin AmbiguousSituation may or may not have done, it's nice that at least one of his friends had enough respect to keep the memento and want to remember him as the friend he knew.
