Though it kind of help that Ma Chao is dead, it may also show that maybe thanks to Zhenji and Cai Wenji, Wang Yi wouldn't collapse after fulfilling her vengeance, she finally can find another purpose in life aside of revenge.
Cao Cao taking the remnant of the Yellow Turbans from Qing Province, men who are starving with no food and only fight so they could live to see another day, as his own troops and giving them fields and land to farm is another great heartwarming moment, as this shows his nicer side, contrasting the fact that he's often labeled the villain of the Series and the ultimate example of Classic Villain in China.
The latter will show his uneasy feeling because some of his allies in Shu are doubtful about his loyalty to Liu Bei. Pang Tong, however, comfort and encourage him and basically said he has faith on Wei Yan.
A couple of camp dialogues in both Dynasty Warriors 7 and 8 are very heartwarming, as some soldiers will try to help their superiors in accepting hard losses, while others may tell stories of their personal lives or their devotion to their lord.

Throughout Shu's story, he states tells his superiors about how he's been following Liu Bei ever since he saved the peon's family.
As the story progresses, he tells his superiors about how he's trying to man up to propose to the one he loves, and how he's going to expect his first child.
However, his statement regarding his child is made during the camp of Fan Castle. If the historical scenario is followed, then the peon's son will appear at the next camp, stating that his father died at Fan Castle. From that point on, he takes on his father's role as the "Hey it's me" guy, and he often notes how he wants to make his late father proud.
If the hypothetical scenario is chosen, the peon survives, and he states that his son has also joined the army, and he wishes to keep on fighting to be the father his son deserves, while the son has similar thoughts. At the end of the story, we finally see that the peon who just started out as a private finally received a promotion as a captain.
Swearing an oath in Empires with another character into being siblings is this. Even taking those who have been enemies such as Zhuge Liang and Sima Yi and have them swear and vowing to end the chaos now considering the other as family. Dynasty Warriors 9 brought back the individual-based stories where all the 90 characters have different endings. While some have bittersweet to sad endings, there are some that have some heartwarming moments: Zhang Liao shows her Lu Bu's iconic halberd which is his last memento.
Lingqi tests it despite how heavy it is which impresses Zhang Liao. When he asks her what she's going to do in the future, Lingqi understands that her father doesn't want her to fight but she also believes that he doesn't want her to turn away from her desired path.
In the end, she decides to continue fighting which Zhang Liao respects. This is also one of the rare moments where Zhang Liao and Lu Lingqi interact each other in a master-apprentice relationship.
Diaochan's ending has Lu Bu respecting her wishes not to join him and telling her to live on as herself and not as poison or her father's pawn.
Lu Bu isn't even mad at her for her decision to leave and accepts it because like him, she's being used by other people. In Zhenji's ending, she plays her flute while her husband Cao Pi listens. When she noticed that it's getting cold, she goes to Cao Pi but notices that he's not moving, causing her to panic.
Cao Pi holds her and tells her not to worry because he is thinking how thankful he is to have her on his side after all the work and stress he experienced as Wei emperor. Then, the two embrace each other which shows how much they love each other regardless of what happened to their relationship in history.
Wang Yuanji's ending has her looking for Sima Zhao who is resting in her bedroom. When Zhao confides to her that he now has a lot of responsibilities to do as the Regent of Wei, Yuanji reassures to her that regardless of his rank, he is still himself.

In Cai Wenji's ending, she plays her harp as Zhenji and Xin Xianying come in and appreciate her music but they notice that there's some sadness in it. Wenji tells them that she thought that the chaos brought a lot of grief in the land but she realizes that there's hope and vows to pass her music to the next generation. Later, she and Zhenji play their instruments together as Xianying watches on.
Xingcai's ending is bittersweet in a sense that despite the defeat of Shu where she and her fellow officers are unable to fulfill what her father and his sworn brothers had been fighting for and being exiled to Luoyang with Liu Shan, she is given Liu Shan's permission to roam around the countryside, where she notices that the people are now at peace which shows that at least his surrender wasn't put into waste.
In Liu Bei's ending, he reminisces the time he and his sworn brothers are drinking and laughing together under the peach garden. Everything fades in his eyes and then, he sees his son Liu Shan and the children of Guan Yu and Zhang Fei together with Zhuge Liang under the same peach garden. It is there where he realizes that he and his brothers' legacy now rest on their children and decides to share that legacy with them.
In a flashback, it turns out that the surrender is actually was actually of his suggestion to lure Guan Yu out of the open and keep his men safe in case something happened.
Cao Cao was aware of this but was concerned that it would ruin his reputation.
