* The Hallmark Channel has made a small industry out of Glurge-filled made-for-TV movies, known as SugarWiki/AHallmarkPresentation. Most often these films are about someone who is overwhelmed with working in the big city, and are forced to live in a small town, which they end up finding more satisfying than their past life. Usually a ridiculously hot love interest drops right into their laps to help the process along, along with a few quirky but bland small town friends. The only real obstacles the protagonist has to overcome are getting off on the wrong foot with the love interest, or some petty rival, which in real life could be fixed by talking to the love interest like an adult and ignoring the rival. Everyone is just sort of cutesy and non-threatening overall. If the main character is a woman the movie will emphasize that starting a family is more fulfilling than having a job. Then December roles around and Hallmark replaces their normal movies with special Christmas ones, which are the same except the overworked person is so overworked that they don't know the true meaning of Christmas, which they learn by moving to the small town and a little from Christmas magic.

* [[https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/michaelwsmith/thisisyourtime.html "This Is Your Time" by Michael W.

* A little over a year after 9/11, the slew of nationalistic country songs written in it's immediate wake were slammed for being shallow and reactionary, and were seen as shamelessly capitalizing on the country's grief. The two most infamous of these were "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" by Music/TobyKeith and "Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning" by Allan Jackson, the latter of which was mercilessly parodied on the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "A Ladder To Heaven" where Jackson solemnly strums his guitar, occasionally singing "Ooo yeah, 9/11..." while everyone weeps.

* ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'' has an in-universe example with ''[[ShowWithinAShow Today Will Be Sweet]]'', a tear jerking manga the cast (sans Kaguya) has read. According to the brief plot summary, the male lead is an IllBoy with a terminal disease while the heroine lives in an abusive household and suffered from isolation and anorexia before the [[ManicPixieDreamGirl male lead breaks her out of her shell]]. She also hasn't eaten decent food in a while, and the one decent meal she gets is a curry dish made by her love interest before he kicks the bucket.

* WhiteMansBurden: A rich white person helps out a poor non-white person out of the goodness of his heart. This has a number of UnfortunateImplications, namely that minorities are helpless and unable to overcome the problem themselves; only with MightyWhitey's help can they succeed. Furthermore, the trope doesn't attribute this power to a discrepancy in wealth, education, or social mobility, but rather the made-up intrinsic superiority of European culture.

* This is an accusation levelled at the film ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Boy_%28film%29 Little Boy]]'', a blond American kid's ComingOfAgeStory marked by the bullying he goes through, his father being sent off to WorldWarTwo, and the racism hurled at the Japanese-American neighbor the kid strikes an IntergenerationalFriendship with.
