** This is OlderThanTheyThink, since it was part of [[UsefulNotes/Epicureanism Epicurean philosophy]] in AncientGreece. Notably, Epicurus believed that happiness came not from simple carnal gratification, but things like friendship and learning. His school, The Garden, was also known as the only place in Athens (or anywhere else in Greece) which [[ValuesResonance welcomed women and slaves in as equals]].

* In ''BobTheAngryFlower'', Bob realizes that he owes a lot of karma. Since being nicer to people would be too much work, he decides to just dump fifty pounds of Ecstasy in the water supply.

* Although he initially seems little more than a self-absorbed UpperClassTwit, [[{{Bishounen}} Tama]][[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} ki]] from ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' actually subscribes to this philosophy. He wants to have fun, but he wants everyone else to have fun too.

* In ToLoveRu Darkness, Momo's Harem Plan is pretty much this. There's definitely some selfishness in there, since she seems to feel this is the best way to receive some of Rito's love, but she's also well aware of just how many girls have fallen for him and wants every last one of them to be happy.

Added DiffLines:

** Her introduction did serve as an examination. While Uncle Grandpa offers fantastical adventures, Aunt Grandma offers immediate practical solutions. However, Uncle Grandpa's adventures also lead to the kids learning lessons that will benefit in the long run, which is more valuable than the immediate help Aunt Grandma presented. Furhermore, his whole trip with her was for her to learn how to unwind and not take things so seriously because of how intensely and unheality focused she was on winning.

*** Lampshaded when Shotaro and Gentaro meet in ''[[Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderFourzeAndOOOMovieWarMegaMax Movie War Megamax]]''. Shotaro is unimpressed that the new Rider is a loudmouth teenager with a pompadour...until Gentaro says he's going to punish the people who made his friends cry.

* ''WickedLovely'' has the Summer court, who are described as 'happy by nature' and 'frivolous and passionate'. They oftentimes tell others to 'choose happiness'. However, due to their nature as part of TheFairFolk, they often put happiness before things like morality and loyalty, on one occasion telling [[BadassNormal Seth]] to leave [[InterspeciesRomance Aislinn]] because he'll be happier that way.
