[[{{Sequelitis}} Normally]], that's the end. [[note]]Note that this is an English trope. German fairy tales usually end with "Und wenn sie nicht gestorben sind, dann leben sie noch heute" - "and if they haven't died yet, they're still living today". French end with "ils se marièrent et eurent beaucoup d'enfants" -- "They married [[BabiesEverAfter and had many children]]", which is seen as an invitation for parodists. Russian tales involving romance actually account for death, apparently ending with, "And they lived their lives happily and died in one day," meaning that when they ''did'' [[DiedHappilyEverAfter eventually die]], [[TogetherInDeath they died together]], and didn't have to live without each other. Hungarian takes it even further with "Boldogan éltek, amíg meg nem haltak" - "They lived happily until they died", with no implication of togetherness.[[/note]]

* ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'': In spite of the intentional Cliffhanger as Sakura jumps across the wide gap between her and Syaoran, it is already clear that the couple (and possibly the other characters, too) get to live happily after the story. The PowerOfFriendship and the PowerOfLove prevail! One of the very few anime shows that actually have true happy endings.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': After some of the darker undertones of the series, the ending is downright saccharine.
** ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' and ''The Promise'' comic series winds up making it a subversion in retrospect, [=AtLA's=] ending was only a momentary respite and was followed by lifelong strife as the cast tries to help the world rebuild. Even ahead of time, they take it as one chapter closing, and another about to open.

saccharine. Every single main character survived to the end, the entire world is free from tyranny, our heroes are well-respected and ''The Promise'' comic series winds up making it a subversion in retrospect, [=AtLA's=] lauded for ending was only a momentary respite the Hundred-Year War, and was followed by lifelong strife as the cast tries to help the world rebuild. Even ahead of time, they take it as one chapter closing, male and another about to open. female lead become an OfficialCouple after three seasons of handwringing and denial.

"''And they lived HappilyEverAfter...''"

to:

"''And they lived HappilyEverAfter...happily ever after...''"



The original source of the HappilyEverAfter endings, the FairyTale, often dealt with the end of the evil characters, with great finality and with more details than the hero and heroine's happiness. The WickedStepmother arrives at Literature/SnowWhite's wedding, whereupon she is forced to put on red-hot iron shoes and dance until she dies, and this is an utterly typical fairy tale ending.

See also TrueLovesKiss, DiedHappilyEverAfter, BabiesEverAfter, DancePartyEnding, TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin. Contrast DownerEnding and BittersweetEnding, the cruellest examples of which make us ''think'' they're going to be a case of this trope before [[CruelTwistEnding yanking the rug out from under the audience]]. Compare MaybeEverAfter, which leaves open the possibility of a happily ever after ending, but doesn't make it a certain conclusion, and EarnYourHappyEnding, in which the characters only live HappilyEverAfter if they're prepared to put some effort into it. In more modern works, even a straight HappilyEverAfter can have the rug pulled out from under it in the sequel, in which we catch up with PrinceCharming and his princess and find that they're [[DowntimeDowngrade getting on each other's nerves]] and [[{{Sequelitis}} have to fall in love all over again]].

* Every Creator/DonBluth movie too. In fact, Bluth has gone on record to say that as long as the story ends HappilyEverAfter, then kids can handle whatever dark and depressing stuff happens beforehand (and in Bluth's earlier movies, happen it does.)

* ''Exaggerated'' in Creator/TomHolt's ''Literature/FlyingDutch''. HappilyEverAfter really ''means'' something when the elixir of life is a major plot point.
