** ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]'' was all about this, taking place AfterTheEnd. We would expect a Film/MadMax or Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar world where the entire earth was an unsafe place where slavers took anyone they like, Raider left behind huge examples of their brutality and the government purging and reclaiming what is theirs. Instead humanity continue to move on. The world isn't some sort of badly irradiated earth despite its share of ColonyDrop and humanity has begun its path towards civilization. Sure we got a few hiccups like the Frost Brothers and remnant of Earth and Space's army wanting to continue the war. But the setting notably light for a supposedly CrapsackWorld.

* This is the ending of Videogame/{{Battleborn}} storyline, [[spoiler: especially the Heliophage mission where Solus system may finally have a breather if not victory with the death of Lothar Rendain that crippled the momentum of Valresi onslaught. While the universe would still end from Valresi assault or reaching its lifespan, people like [[RagTagBunchOfMisfis Battleborn]] chose to fight together rather than dying alone.]]

* [[WebComic/SchlockMercenary The Schlockniverse]] is a vast, dangerous, weird place, full of hostile alien races, tin-pot dictators ruling backwater colonies, and a central Human government so corrupt that plutocracy is actually an integral institution in its proper function. And then there are [[AIIsACrapshoot Rogue AI's]], [[MadScientist Mad Scientists]], and [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] to deal with to boot. And yet, there are good people to be found in the most unlikely places, and they always try to do the right thing. Our protagonists are nominally mercenaries and do do nasty things for money, but [[BandOfBrothers they're fiercely loyal to each other]] and always strive to do those nasty things for the right - or at least, the least morally objectionable - reasons. They have made powerful friends and allies who do want to make the galaxy a better place, including a functionally-immortal race who want to share their gifts with everyone, and one of those Rogue AI's who has ascended to godhood and is doing his best to protect the galaxy from the monsters from beyond.

*** Unfortunately for ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' and ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheDreaming'', they appeared at a time when [[CursedWithAwesome faux]] [[{{Wangst}} despair]] [[MonsterSobStory as an excuse to play]] [[ComedicSociopathy barbaric PCs]] was what [[VideogameCrueltyPotential most players wanted from]] a WorldOfDarkness campaign.

* ''TabletopGame/BlueRose'' has drifted from a borderline utopia in its infamous First Edition into this trope's territory in the new Second Edition. TheKingdom and its society are still clearly fundamentally good, but the players have to fight harder than ever to keep it from collapsing in the face of demonic cults, foreign invasions, religious unrest, greedy merchants, and political intrigue.

*** The speech became a HeartWarmingInHindsight as in [[SamuraiJack/TropesSeason5 the final season]]. [[spoiler: When Samurai Jack became hopeless after wandering the world for fifty years without his sword, his efforts are not in vain throughout the years. Many kingdoms and characters that Jack had helped formed a formidable fighting force, who managed to launch an ill-fated assault on Aku that also symbolized how far the victims began to stand up to him rather than cower in fear. When Jack began to suffer from [[HeroicBSOD depression]] that almost made him DrivenToSuicide, it took Ashi's words based on her observations on the improvement on the lives that Jack saved to snap him out of it. When he finally found the sword from his renewed vigor and faced Aku, his friends performed both GondorCallsForAid and HeroicSacrifice just to buy enough time to go back in time and finally vanquish Aku.]]

* ''{{Baroque}}'' is set in an AfterTheEnd world where humanity has been reduced to a handful of [[BodyHorror mutated freaks]] whose forms are based on their own individual psychoses. [[spoiler:At the end, you don't fix the world. But you do make it so that the world has a chance]].
