** And speaking of the Eclipse, the Hope Spots that especially stand out in that part happen when [[spoiler:Guts sees Casca naked and in the clutches of a tentacled Apostle and surrounded by monsters after he's just gone to town on a good number of others. Guts goes berserk and goes into a FoeTossingCharge to get to her, but before he can reach her, a demon snaps its massive jaws on his left arm and nips any hope of pulling that off in the bud. Guts can only watch helplessly as Casca is about to get raped, only for the demons to drop what they're doing and freeze -- because Griffith has been reborn as Femto, the fifth member of the Godhand. And then, as Femto flies down and starts [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty having his way with Casca]], Guts first tries to kill the demon that's got his arm, but when the sword breaks, he's forced to ''chisel off the arm'' with what's left of it in a serious {{Badass}} moment to get free so that he can save Casca and kill Femto. But when he finally gets free, Femto, being the utter bastard he is, lets Guts get within ''inches'' of [[GoForTheEye putting out his eye with the broken sword]] before telekinetically hurling him away and letting the horde of demons dogpile him and hold him down, [[ForcedToWatch forcing him to watch]] as Femto rapes Casca to insanity right in front of him and the demons claw out his right eye]].

** Ichigo is pushed to the wall in a clash with Yhwach, who appears to have the advantage with his sight of the near future. The enemy urges his "son" to not give in to despair quite yet, not because he thinks Ichigo has a chance, but because seeing him jump from one possible future to another made it more interesting. Ichigo responds by citing all the other times he's fought despair and come out on top, sometimes alone and sometimes with a friend's help, and busts out the Bankai of his re-forged Tensa Zangetsu... [[spoiler:only for Yhwach to completely and utterly shut that down by finding a "Tensa Zangetsu" is broken future and pulling that into the present, then proceeding to beat both him and Orihime to a pulp, ending the HumiliationConga by draining all of Ichigo's strength. That clash ends with Ichigo broken, powerless, and convinced that there is absolutely no way to win this. Worst of all, Yhwach twists the knife by telling him that NOW'S the time to despair.]]

* ''GashBell'' has a lot of these near the end of the series, [[spoiler: when the last ten books are being burned, most of them belonging to good guys. Arth and Elly's fight with Gomu and Mir is a prime example; just as is seems that Arth is a goner, Elly calls forth his ultimate spell and summons thousands of flying swords. Without breaking a sweat, Gomu and Mir use a dimensional spell to destroy the swords, then finish off Arth with one blow.]]

* In ''ProjectARMS'', a huge fight goes down in New York City, and it looks like [[spoiler:Dark Alice]] and Keith White have been defeated. Everyone goes home, the dead are buried, and it looks like everyone is ready to kick back and have an ordinary life. [[spoiler:Then, it's revealed that Dark Alice is actually living inside of Katsumi now, and that she has been kidnapped by Keith White (who did survive, of course) to blow up the planet. And their ARMS have been deactivated, so they have no powers. Ouch.]]

* The ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' two-part episode "That day, Riot Force Six" is filled with Hope Spot after Hope Spot as [[spoiler:the characters unleash their power and teamwork like they're supposed to... but Shamal and Zafila still get shot, the TSAB headquarters still gets destroyed, and Ginga and Vivio still get "confiscated"]].

* Subverted (along with one of the usual episode formulas) in ''YesPrecure5''. Cure Aqua is fighting Hadeenya and the MonsterOfTheWeek alone and losing badly. Suddenly, the other four Cures arrive! [[TheWorfEffect And it takes the bad guys about thirty seconds to kick their asses thoroughly]]. Well, that didn't help. ...Except that they bought Aqua the time she needed to recover and figure out how to even the odds.

* One of the mooks (Chess) gets one in the ''[[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Shin Hokuto No Ken OVA]]''. The BigBad hit one of his {{Pressure Point}}s to kill him later on, but temporarily undoes it before gaining Chess' servitude. When Chess begs him to undo it permanently, he actually does so, and Chess does a HappyDance that lasts all the way until Ken punches through the door, incidentally hitting the same PressurePoint. YouAreAlreadyDead ensues.
* ''OnePiece'': Luffy finally, after [[YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle failing to get his brother out of Impel Down]], a long drawn-out battle between the Whitebeard Pirates and the Marines, and beating his way past foe after foe, [[spoiler:rescues his big brother Ace from execution and gets him out of the seastone cuffs so he can fight! Ace dies [[HeroicSacrifice saving Luffy]] in the escape]].
* MahouSenseiNegima: Negi, though injured, has defeated Dynamis, Kotarou and the others have rescued Asuna, Nodoka has the Great Grand Master Key, and Chachamaru has just blasted Fate Averruncus with her Satellite Cannon artifact. Things are looking up! ... And then the Averrunci of Wind, Water, and Fire show up. One of them blows Chachamaru in half, another erases Johnny, and Kaede sacrifices herself to get the Great Grand Master Key they had just stolen back. Then Fate shows up and takes it back anyway.
