* The ''Literature/HarryPotter'' [[PotterVerse universe]]. While Harry might have been the one destined to defeat Voldemort, it's pointed out time and time again that he [[ThePowerOfFriendship couldn't have done it without friends]]. And even if they've defeated the BigBad, the world will need lots of support to reduce the power of pure-bloods, limit [[FantasticRacism Wizards-First prejudice]], reform the ''extremely'' screwed-up Ministry of Magic, and make a more peaceful place altogether.

* ''[[Literature/ThreeBodyProblem The Dark Forest]]'' ends on this note after [[spoiler:Earth and Trisolaris make peace.]] Although the universe is still a terrifying hellhole where millions of space-faring civilizations prey on each other on sight, [[spoiler:Ji Luo and his family get to live HappilyEverAfter and it's implied that the two worlds will one day work to broker peace with the rest of the galaxy.]]

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11962940/1/ A Brighter Dark]]'' seems to be attempting this, with much more emphasis on the [[FireEmblemFates original story's]] darker elements and an overall more grim outlook on the world, yet even at its lowest points the story still offers some form of hope for things eventually getting better.

* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'', heavily inspired by both Creator/{{Marvel}} and Creator/{{DC}}, sets out its world like this. The world is filled with criminals, monsters and {{Supervillain}}s of every imaginable kind, is recovering from an AlienInvasion that's not quite over, and looking at TheMultiverse, this is one of the ''best'' options. So what stands in the way of evil? {{Superhero}}es. ''[[{{MMORPG}} Lots and lots]]'' of superheroes. (and even the [[VideoGame/CityOfVillains villains]] [[NobleDemon can help out a bit]])

* The first arc of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' involves the protagonists Edward and Alphonse Elric exposing and bringing down the false prophet ruling the town of Liore/Reole (spelling depends on translation). While they dismantle the religion that had given the people a false sense of hope and security, Ed leaves Rose with a message about them carrying on with their own strength; by the time the Van Hohenheim arrives in the town later in the manga, it is seen to be recovering quite nicely and the people are genuinely more happy than they were before. This is just a microcosm of the Elric Brothers' actions: over the course of the manga, their actions expose the State's true intentions to a number of high-ranking officers unwilling to allow it to happen, make inroads with a foreigners who happen to practice the perfect counter to Father's alchemy, and redeem one of their greatest foes, all leading to the creation of a coalition capable of thwarting TheBigBad's plan to sacrifice the entire country to usurp God. By the end of the manga, the different members of that coalition then set about righting the wrongs of their predecessors, working to make the world a better place.

* The DC Universe and Marvel Universe (the mainstream ones anyway) arguably fit this description. Both of them are full of [[EldritchAbomination terrible beasts from beyond the veil]], [[AlienInvasion ruthless alien conquerors]], [[LegionsOfHell cunning and vicious demons out for souls and blood]], [[MagnificentBastard charismatic and savvy villains who look cool even when they make life worse for everybody else]], [[EvilSorcerer masters of dark magic]], [[MadScientist scientists with absolutely no regard for ethics or safety]], [[AIIsACrapshoot insane and insanely powerful machine gods]], [[TheSyndicate multiple crime syndicates with access to any combination of the above]], and plenty of good ol' fashioned [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters human evil]]. But even at their lowest points, the heroes of both universes ''[[TheDeterminator never stop fighting evil]]'', the occasional HeroicBSOD aside. And despite the prevailing AllOfTheOtherReindeer attitude the people of both universes (especially Marvel) display most of the time, plenty of people (not just humans) are [[RousseauWasRight decent enough to justify the heroes' efforts to defend them]]. A brief dialogue from ''[[TheDCAU Superman the Animated Series]]'' sums it up (paraphrased):

* The backstory of ''Fanfic/YuGiOhTheThousandYearDoor'' shows that the Shadow Queen gained power by extinguishing Hope as a concept with a dark curse of Despair, and further goes into detail with the Three Heroes, a small group who, a thousand years ago rekindled a small mote of Hope that grew into a blazing fire. In the present day, the Queen seeks to extinguish it completely and gain complete freedom, only to start the process all over again.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' takes place in a WorldGoneMad where most adults are evil villains bent on enslaving or abusing children. Still, the eponymous organization fights this tyranny at every turn, the point driven home unsubtly in the movie, where it is stated that Hope as a concept is the {{Greater Scope Villain}}'s WeaksauceWeakness

* Despite having the story start with the world ending, and the new world that follows being darker than the original anime, ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' generally maintains this feeling. The author takes care to ensure that dark elements of the universe are balanced out by light elements and a general sense that things have gotten better and will continue to get better.

** ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' continues this trend. Compared to D.C. in ''Fallout 3'', the Commonwealth of Boston is much more hospitable. Pretty successful settlements have appeared, and while there is the constant worry of a Raider or Super Mutant attack, it's not a war-zone like it was in D.C. In fact, besides playing the main story, one particular faction's main goal is to do exactly what the above description of this Trope describes: To slowly, but steadily rebuild settlements all over the Commonwealth and help them survive... And you can help them achieve this. While it'll suck time and ressources like no other questchain in the game, the end result will be a [[EarnYourGoodEnding a wasteland slowly reaching the levels of civilization only previously seen in the NCR and New Vegas.]]
