** Any plans for the Marines to change for the better are [[spoiler: utterly squashed when it's shown Akainu has taken over Sengoku's position, leading Garp, Kuzan, and potentially many other moderate-minded marines to retire/drop their commissions.]]

*** The sequel/finale movie ''Endless Waltz'' also has a Bittersweet Ending: true peace has come to the world, the villain has been defeated and the girl he was manipulating rescued...but the Gundams are all destroyed for good (4 via their {{Self Destruct Mechanism}}s, the fifth blown to pieces by the recoil of its own BFG) and the pilots scattered to the five winds, likely never to see each other again.

* In a way the anime fanbase received a rather harsh example of this trope. For years many of us wanted to put an end to {{Macekre}}s and {{Bowdlerization}} in anime English dubs (in which companies such as Creator/FourKidsEntertainment are known offenders). Hackjobs are becoming far more rare in Anime English dubs as the uncut accurate ones are truly becoming the majority. Alas this was starting to happen more since NetworkDecay became a known epidemic. So while there are substantially less hackjob anime dubs on TV the amount of anime dubs on TV in general is not that much better. Doesn't help that a few of the known Anime Dub companies are dead and most of them are struggling to not follow suit. So to make a long story short, hackjobs are occuring few and far between but the anime industry isn't exactly doing better.

** And the final novel of the main series ends triumphantly for [[RedHeadedHeroine Lina]] and [[IdiotHero Gourry]] as they decide to [[WillTheyOrWontThey visit Lina's home kingdom]]. The cost of this was [[spoiler:killing off the mentally conflicted Luke, who had transformed into [[PiecesOfGod Shabranigdo]]; this happened to him because the woman he loved, Milina, was poisoned, denied medical treatment, and died.]]

* ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'': Luluco defeats the evil Blackholeian and restores justice to the universe, but at the cost of her beloved Nova sacrificing himself to the black hole they used to defeat him, thus separating them across time and space when they had only just confirmed their mutual love. Yet Luluco does not despair because she knows he's alive and waiting for her in some alternate universe, [[IWillFindYou and she fully intends to search the cosmos until she finds him again. Outside of the show itself, we might have some indication that she ''does'' find him eventually...in the ''Anime/{{Kiznaiver}}'' universe. Pay close attention in the upper right corner of ''Kiznaiver'' episode 12 at the part where Tenga and Chidori are meeting at [[FreezeFrameBonus 21:07]], and you'll see Luluco talking to Nova. [[EarnYourHappyEnding She kept her word]].]]

** ''AudioPlay/StrikersSoundStageX'', which is set [[TimeSkip three years after the third season]], also ended on a bittersweet tone. [[NightOfTheLivingMooks The Mariage]] case was resolved with minimal losses, but Ixpellia, the MysteriousWaif that Subaru met, protected, and made friends with during the incident, [[ConvenientComa went back to sleep for maybe ten years... or a thousand]]. What is it about [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld characters from Ancient Belka]] and Bittersweet Endings? [[spoiler: Ixpellia would wake up (kind of) less than a year later in ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid ViVid]]''.]]

* The second season of ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' ended with the incident resolved and no one dying. Well, almost no one. To ensure the [[DeaderThanDead complete destruction]] of the NighInvulnerable OmnicidalManiac, the first Reinforce sacrifices herself, despite the tearful protests of Hayate.
