* ''[[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.

* 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.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' pretty much enforces this. Any kid whose life is miserable enough gets a fairy godparent or two to balance things out, but if they become too happy then their godparent is taken away again. Timmy is [[NeglectfulParents neglected by his parents]], abused by his teacher and babysitter, and all too often his own wishes [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor come back to bite him in the ass]], but he has so much fun with Cosmo and Wanda that he's willing to endure it all just to keep them in his life. Indeed, on multiple occasions Timmy has the opportunity to get Vicky out of his life forever, but refuses to take them, claiming it's worth it just to have Cosmo and Wanda in his life for a few more years.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': It's legal to eat human meat, but protecting the environment is a crime, UsefulNotes/RichardNixon is once again president and this time of the entire world, suicide booths are commonplace, the world's military is controlled by an incompetent, amoral, womanizing buffoon, there is no ozone layer, and crack is readily available in vending machines. However, several episodes show that humans can band together and make significant and positive changes, such as "Proposition Infinity", "Crimes of the Hot", and "The Mutants are Revolting".
