* The ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' episode "Rick Potion #9": Rick's newest invention causes everyone to fall in love with Morty and both attempts to reverse it just make things worse, first by turning the previously afflicted into mantis mutants who now want to have sex with Morty ''and'' eat his head, then by turning everyone on Earth not related to Morty into Creator/DavidCronenberg-style amorphous blobs. Rick decides to just go to a dimension where he and Morty are destined to die in a lab explosion and the two of them take the dead ones' places. Meanwhile in the original dimension, the original Jerry and Beth are happier without Rick and Morty while Summer has become a grizzled veteran and a Cronenberg-style Rick and Morty from a dimension where the ''opposite'' happened take up residence there.

* It would probably be easier to list the Website/GoAnimate Grounded videos that ''don't'' end this way, as many of them invariably end with the main character grounded for long periods of time at best, have their lives completely ruined or even beaten up or killed at worst. Rarely does the video present this as anything but a happy ending for those beside the main character(s).
** The worst cases of this trope as it pertains to grounded videos are the "X Gets Executed" videos, which are centered around a troublesome character being killed for their past misdemeanors with their death being celebrated (by their families, friends, and even the entire town) both before, during, and after the execution. (Often with the characters quite literally dancing on their grave.) Despite having such a demented premise and having everyone involved clearly crossing the MoralEventHorizon, this is presented as a good ending for everyone involved. (Except the character being executed, of course.)

* ''VideoGame/DragonAge'' has become infamous for this among mage and/or elf fans. Every game, the PlayerCharacter protects the local Andrastian human kingdom or religious organization from crumbling due to their own incompetence and/or corruption. [[note]]The Warden saves Ferelden from Civil War and the Blight, Hawke saves Kirkwall from the Qunari and the rebel mages and Templars from tearing the city apart, and the Inquisitor saves Orlais from Civil War, the Chantry from crumbling, and Andrastian Southern Thedas from falling to a Tevinter madman[[/note]] However, these same Andrastian human kingdoms and religious institutions have deeply ingrained FantasticRacism against mages and/or elves. Even if the PlayerCharacter is an elf/mage, saves the world, and is exalted as as a hero at the end, within a few years the society you saved goes back to mistreating your people.

** There is someone coming to their rescue, the asylum is maintained by a cleaning service that will come by in a few hours and lift the lockdown on the building, the ghosts and darkness entity inside are only active when they arent exposed to daylight.

* ''Film/IndependenceDayResurgence'' ends with humanity driving off a second invasion by the aliens. Large chunks of Asia were picked up and dumped on Europe, causing untold environmental devastation and costing billions of lives. Most of the advances fighters and space stations the humans built were destroyed. In addition, this is the second time the aliens were defeated, and there are many more motherships and Harvesters out there. But, the humans have been invited to lead the galactic resistance! All's well that ends well!

* ''Anime/GurrenLagann:'' Yes, the universe was saved and the Anti-Spiral didn't kill off humanity, but many of the crew dies (including Kittan, right after he confesses his love for Yoko), Nia dies just after her and Simon's wedding and Simon himself becomes a [[WalkingTheEarth hobo]] of sorts, which comes off as a rather insulting fate for someone who saved the entire man race from extinction. Not to mention, the Spiral Nemesis, the thing the Anti-Spiral were trying to stop from happening is still a potential risk that has a very real chance of transpiring and destroying everything. For such an idealistic series, the ending can be especially jarring.
