I want to see a show where they "defeat" the villain by offering love and friendship. And they unironically accept.
@alexlaw come to think of it, this did happen! In GunXSword, there's a team of old discarded heroes called the El-Dorado 5. In their first appearance a rampaging scientist was trashing the town in a giant mecha to avenge how everyone in town kept making fun of him.
They defeated him - and then offered their friendship! Tho it meant helping to fix up the town he smashed.
He even showed up to help them later in the show
