* 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.

* In ''[[VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kai]]'' [[KillEmAll The Massacre Chapter]] it seems like Rika and her friends will win against [[spoiler: [[BigBad Takano]]]], but no, they all get snuffed. Fortunately they get to try again.

** [[spoiler:Kurumi]] gets bit by a zombie but is saved by a vaccine. [[spoiler:...Except she wasn't truly "saved". The vaccine postponed the infection but as the manga goes on it becomes more obvious she will eventually [[AndJohnWasAZombie turn]] soon.]]

* In {{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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SchoolLive'' uses this frequently once CerebusSyndrome hits. It was always a dark manga however it things tend to go FromBadToWorse frequently:
** The ending to a chapter hints at a might new addition to the School Life Club. She has a detailed design, is treated as important, and is the first new, major survivor since Miki. [[spoiler:She becomes a zombie before the girls can even meet her. They travel to find her but she locked herself in a closet when she knew she would turn.]]
** [[spoiler:Kurumi]] gets bit by a zombie but is saved by a vaccine. [[spoiler:...Except she wasn't truly "saved". The vaccine postponed the infection but as the manga goes on it becomes more obvious she will eventually [[AndJohnWasAZombie turn]] soon.]]
** A rescue helicopter arrives at the school. [[spoiler:He subccumbs to the zombie infection and the copter crashes. It causes a fire and the girls need to exacuate the school, leaving them [[TeenageWasteland a bunch of high schoolers]] stuck alone in a ZombieApocalypse]].
** [[CoolBigSis Rii]] rescues [[spoiler:her little sister]] from a zombie infested elementary school and she is a TagalongKid. [[spoiler:Ruu is dead, or at the very least missing, and Rii has [[SanitySlippage snapped]]. She's hallucinating and the others are playing along.]]
** The girls meet a group of new survivors however it becomes clear that their new home is probably even more dangerous than their last, thanks to a gang of other survivors who are incredibly hostile [[spoiler:and te fact one of them is infected (even ignoring Kurumi)]].
** In an anime-only example, TeamPet Taromaru is seen [[spoiler:recovering from his zombie state]] in episode 12, after Miki gives him the antidote. [[spoiler:He dies minutes later while on Miki's lap.]]
