* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', a show where most of the episodes are standalone, has almost every other episode end on a bittersweet note (Asteroid Blues, Waltz for Venus, Jupiter Jazz, Speak Like a Child, Boogie Woogie Feng Shui and Black Dog Serenade, to mention a few). The main character arcs of Spike, Jet, Faye and Ed which resolve in the last three episodes could be interpreted as such, but may also fit the definition of {{Downer Ending}}s: Two of them discover that YouCantGoHomeAgain, and the other two lose people close to them. [[spoiler:It finally ends keeping to the trope, with the primary character doing a TakingYouWithMe.]]

* ''Manga/DissolvingClassroom'''s ending is definitely more bitter than sweet, verging on a DownerEnding, as while [[spoiler:Yuuma and Chizumi are implied to have been killed by the animated liquid remains of their victims, thus sending their souls to hell, thousands (if not millions) of people are implied to have been killed by watching the news feed of the press conference and hearing Yuuma's deadly apologies]].

Yeah, we probably can't make this entry without also acknowledging the theory that Lelouch actually absorbed his father, Emperor Charles', Code during his final fight with him, becoming immortal upon getting killed rather than actually [[KilledOffForReal dying for real]]. With this in mind, it helps push things a little farther towards the HappyEnding direction. With a season 3 coming that has now revealed he survived, its confirmed this theory.
