One scene that I always like is the scene in the last episode of Tenchi in Tokyo where he spares Yugi's life. Despite everything that Yugi has done to him and the girls, Tenchi realises that Yugi isn't some evil mastermind, but a little girl with mental problems who has been mistreated.
The fact that he lets her live with him and the girls at the end of the show is a great moment and shows that Tenchi has a big heart.
Yet another reason I didn't quite like the way Tenchi Muyo oav ended up, the way Tenchi was actually a god incarnate or something like that. I like Tenchi of the first oav, of Tenchi Universe, & even Tenchi & Tokyo (though not when he dumped Ryoko!) I did like him having some extraordinary hidden powers, & his backstory of being descended from Jurain nobility; he had absolutely NO idea of his extra-terrestrial background, & if he hadn't awakened Ryoko, he probably never would have. It just made me think, who knows what extraordinary things there may be hidden for all of us--whether it be some unknown family secret (maybe grandpa's actually from outer space! 0.o) or some hidden power within--it just made me think if it can happen to Tenchi (like being visited by hot chicks from outer space that are crazy about you lol) or more realistically: if Tenchi can do it, maybe I can too; a lesson that can be learned by anyone who watches the series, & is applicable in even the most ordinary day-to-day life experiences.
The idea of extraordinary things happening to ordinary people is one I've always loved; whenever I've come across it in literature, film or anime, I've often fallen in love with that particular series. It's a theme that is at the center of many great works (like Lord of the Rings, for instance) & even a central theme of alot of anime out there today, but Tenchi Muyo was one of the first to really run with it, & that's why I love Tenchi the series, & Tenchi Masaki, the super-powered 'average Joe' of the anime world.
Now he just looks at the carrot fields... and the carrots pop out and line up to be picked.
