** 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.

** Aang told Iroh how he'd been told to [[spoiler: let go of his love for Katara in order to use his full power]], and had refused to do so. Iroh immediately tells him he did the right thing, and that "Power and perfection are overrated".

* Finn from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' wants to solve everyone's problems. In another show, the way this was set up would lead to him realizing he can't, and making most people happy, or [[SweetAndSourGrapes giving up but finding that making himself happy makes everyone else happier]]. But this is ''[[CrazyAwesome Adventure Time]]'', after all. So [[{{Determinator}} he does]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome it.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa'' is all about this trope, showing up to help kids out, or just take them on a fun adventure. It went horribly wrong once: a girl he took on a random trip to Mars long ago ended up getting second place at a science fair because [[NiceJobBreakingItHero he chipped her exhibit]] and [[CreateYourOwnVillain resulted in her becoming his more serious archrival]], Aunt Grandma.

While Bob might be any average guy, his desire to make happiness possible - and especially the fight against needless suffering that comes with it - might drive him to become a hero. In some interpretations of Order vs Chaos, Bob is a ChaoticGood kind of character who might clash with a LawfulGood hero who disregards ForHappiness in favor of having ForGreatJustice as his only driving principle. A hero who in such a setting embraces BOTH ForHappiness and ForGreatJustice, keeping a balance between them when they clash, is usually NeutralGood, although one can find both [[TheNeedsOfTheMany Utilitarian-type consequentialists]] and [[ForGreatJustice some fairly strict deontologists]] among the Neutral Good; and in general the matching of philosophy in this regard with one's position on with Order vs. Chaos is true most of the time, but not in every situation.

Compare TheNeedsOfTheMany, GoodFeelsGood and ThePollyanna. For more on the philosophy behind ForHappiness actions see UsefulNotes/EthicalHedonism. Compare ''and'' contrast TotalitarianUtilitarian and HappinessIsMandatory, as well as GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul, for when this goes horribly, ''horribly wrong''.

* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting ScarredLands, the titan Gulaben held the powers of granting happiness. The mortal peoples believed her to be ForHappiness, and her popularity made her a threat to the Gods' reign over the world. Claiming that her power was merely a sinister kind of GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul, the Gods captured her and destroyed all memories of her so that no one would try to set her free. The official truth is that she was a fickle and cruel titan, who might kill you even as she induces pleasure beyond imagination. The gods simply [[IDidWhatIHadToDo did what they had to do]]. And since we no longer remember the real truth about Gulaben, we'll just have to take their word for it.

* One ''SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2569#comic strip]] starts out by featuring a StrawCharacter version of ForHappiness. He soon becomes a TotalitarianUtilitarian, however.
