** Kyoko's speech about how it might be possible to save Sayaka, who has [[spoiler:turned into a Witch]].
-->"Wouldn't that be somethin'? It'd be like one of those stories [[ThePowerOfLove where love and courage triumph]] and stuff. Wanna know something, and this is between us? The reason I became a MagicalGirl was because I love stories like those. Can't believe I forgot that."

* In many {{Shonen}} {{Manga}} and the {{Anime}} based on them, fights tend to run pretty long, with one side revealing a skill/power/strategy that gives them the edge, only to be trumped by a better skill/power/strategy from the other side, and so on until someone runs out of trump cards. Because of this, almost any fight where a good guy loses is going to feature at least one Hope Spot.

** ''ShinMazingerZero'': An expecially cruel one. [[GroundhogPeggySue After failing nearly three thousand times]], [[TimeTravel the heroes achieve saving their timeline]]. The epilogue show them living peaceful, happy lifes... but at the last pages [[spoiler:Prof. Morimori makes a terrifying discovery before being murdered by Archduke Gorgon,]] and the last page advertises the sequel: ''Shin Mazinger Zero versus Ankoku Daishogun''. Any one even remotely familiar with the Mazinger myths knows the world is becoming a CrapsackWorld, very, ''very'' quickly, and Mazinger Z is about to [[spoiler:be destroyed,]] making Kouji's triumph over Dr. Hell useless and meaningless.

** The whole series in general could be considered one big Hope Spot.

Healing kicks in and she slashes the gun in half and catches Mustang. Mustang pulls out his glove? [[AchillesHeel She strikes the pipes to flood the room and take out his ability to use flames and forces them to run.]] Mustang pulls out a spare glove and decomposes the room the water into hydrogen and oxygen while using Havoc's lighter to create a giant explosion, burning her alive? Healing factor again AND sneak attack from behind, taking down Havoc. Mustang hits her with a shotgun to the chest, reaches into her, and rips the Philosopher's Stone inside her out? It's her core and she revives from there, stabs him through the side, and rips up his glove, then leaves both of them to die. [[CrowningMomentofAwesome After ALL of that, Mustang finally does overcome her by returning, having carved his flame alchemy sigil on his hand and using said lighter to help him repeatedly burn her alive until she stays dead.]]

Then Kanzaki, another Saint, shows up to aid and attacks Acqua with a level of force never before seen in the story... and though he has to actually put a bit of effort into it, Acqua ''still'' [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomps]] her.

** 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 and goes after Femto, 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]].
