* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' series by {{Sierra}} ended its trilogy based on this trope. [[spoiler:The world literally cracks apart after the Dark Master has seemingly won and accomplished destroying the world. But Spyro uses his powers to save the world at the last moment with Cynder at his side. All their friends are okay and Ignitus, thought dead, is now the new Chronicler. The bittersweet part is that Spyro and Cynder are apparently dead... until its revealed they miraculously survived and after all the crap they've gone through, they've earned the happy ending they both deserved after all those scenes of angst. Oh, and apparently Cynder loves Spyro so they're more then likely in love now. Only took the end of the world for the relationship to become canon.]]

* ''VideoGame/SOS'' is ''made'' of this trope. Since it's about escaping a sinking luxury cruise liner, you have to find and escort enough people as well as certain persons depending on what character you're playing as. You get one real time hour to do this. But if you can pull off an escort mission to end all escort missions, you can get the happiest ending, allowing you character and the people they care about to not only move on from the disaster but become better people.

** In ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'', the legal system is in the middle of the Dark Age of the Law, where prosecutor and lawyer alike seek victory at any legal cost and trust in the legal system is at an all time low. And the catalyst for the Dark Age, Phoenix's disbarment and [[spoiler: Simon Blackquill's incarceration for the murder of Athena's mother]]. While the former was dealt with in the previous game, the later is still very much a problem. And that's not even getting into what happens in the game: [[spoiler: A courtroom was bombed right at the begining of the game (though it happens later chronologically). The victim of the forth case was Apollo's friend, and Athena gets accused of his murder, causing Apollo a conflict of loyalties, Blackquill is just one day from his execution by the day of of the final case, and getting him acquitted will only get Athena convicted of the murder of her own mother. And Trucy is held hostage at the Space Museum with several others.]] In the end, [[spoiler: both Athena and Blackquill are proven innocent, Trucy is safe and the real culprit is bought to justice, with the Wright Anything Agency intact and ready to put an end to the Dark Age of the Law.]]

* The ''{{Suikoden}}'' series actually makes this into a game mechanic: the characters will suffer through all the tragedies and losses of war and then some, but if you [[OneHundredPercentCompletion recruit all 108 Stars of Destiny]], everyone gets a truly happy ending. Keep in mind that this is not at all easy, and neglecting to get even one of them will result in a much more {{bittersweet|Ending}}, or even downright [[DownerEnding tragic]] ending.

* ''PlanescapeTorment'' has you [[GuideDangIt jump through numerous hoops]] to get the best ending, but it's oh so worth it. [[spoiler:Having faced down your previous incarnations and being forced to watch as [[BigBad the Transcendent One]] (aka your own mortality made sentient) butchers your party one by one, you finally confront it and convince it to give up its hopeless plan to be independent from you and rejoin with you, ending your immortality. After this, you restore your friends, bid one final farewell to them, and finally, ''finally'' die and begin your penance for the crimes of the First Incarnation. Yes, it seems bittersweet, but the Nameless One still has the knowledge that his friends are all alive, in some cases (Dak'kon, Morte) absolved of their guilt/servitude, and can leave their adventures with him better people who will likely go far. Besides, The Nameless One now has all the power and knowledge of ''all'' his [[TimeAbyss many]] incarnations, so it's not like he'll be defenseless in the battlefields of the Blood War.]]

* ''PhantasyStarIV'' has the happy ending earned by ''every single character in the series''. We find out that Algo and its inhabitants were created ''solely'' to produce heroes meant to keep the SealedEvilInACan in its can, and that the struggle against Dark Force has gone on for thousands of years because of a flaw in the seal; Chaz loses his mentor and has a crisis of faith when he realizes that the forces of Light are just as ruthless and manipulative as the Darkness, and [[RefusalOfTheCall refuses]] to fight on its terms-- but chooses instead to fight for the sake of all the people who came before, and lived, fought, died, and were forgotten or lost in their struggle. The ending finds the heroes of the game continuing on and happily living the lives they always wanted to, and the souls of the heroes from the previous games finally being able to rest.

*** And it does: [spoiler: Lightning awakens 13 Days before the world will end and she needs to save the souls of people and help the World Tree grow, so that Bhunivelze can awaken on the final day and create a new world for everyone to be reborn in. During the 13 Days, Lightning learns how terrible life has been for everyone in the last 500 years, Noel and Snow have succumbed to [[HeroicBSOD depression]] due to blaming themselves for Sera's death and Vanille is willing to sacrifice herself to cleanse the soul of the dead, so they no longer have to suffer. On the final day, it turns out that the ritual Vanille is to perform will destroy all souls, Bhunivelze's plan was for this to happen so that everyone is reincarnated into the new world as blissful puppets and Lightning has been trained to be the next Etro. Happiness comes when Lightning defies Bhunivelze and fights him, but chooses to remain behind as the new goddess of death, but is saved by admitting her own weakness to herself. Then the souls of all her friends arrives and help her in killing Bhunivelze, the thousands of Yuel's born and died over the years and in control of the Unseen Chaos take over the role of Etro, leaving Lightning and everyone to be reincarnated into a world without wars. Lightning is last seen stepping off of a train in a european landscape, saying she'll go and meet... someone. (Likely her friends/or [[ShipTease Hope]], as implied by the game's scenario writer)]
