* In ''Series/DoctorWho,'' it's already a ForegoneConclusion that thanks to the TimeyWimeyBall which is their relationship, the Doctor and River cannot have a HappilyEverAfter. But at the end of ''[[Recap/DoctorWho2015CSTheHusbandsOfRiverSong the Husbands of River Song]],'' the Doctor takes her to the Singing Towers of Darillium, where [[spoiler: they spend 24 years together.]] As River tells him, "happy ever after" isn't about forever, it's just about spending the rest of the time you have with the one you love. The closing shot shows the words:
-->[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "They lived happily ever after."]]
-->[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "They lived happily"]]
-->[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "happily"]]

* [[MultipleEndings One ending]] of ''ThreeWorldsCollide'' makes living happily ever after ''horrifying''. Happiness is overrated.

* A few of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's plays give the characters this, particularly ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream, Theatre/TwelfthNight,'' and ''Theatre/AsYouLikeIt''.

to:

* A few of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's plays give the characters this, comedies generally end this way, particularly ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream, Theatre/TwelfthNight,'' ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream'', ''Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing'', and ''Theatre/AsYouLikeIt''.''Theatre/AsYouLikeIt'', which each end with two to four couples HappilyMarried. Often as not, though, there's character or two [[DidNotGetTheGirl left out in the cold]] and excluded from the world of love and marriage--see [[AmbiguouslyGay Antonio]] in ''Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice'' and [[AmbiguouslyGay Antonio]] and [[SadClown Feste]] in ''Theatre/TwelfthNight''.
** ''Theatre/LovesLaboursLost'' also subverts the trope: everything is shaping up perfectly toward a happy ending, the four young swains have successfully wooed the four young maidens--but in the final scene the female lead gets word that her father has died, causing a palpable MoodWhiplash, and she and her friends decide to return to her kingdom,leaving their loves. It's substantially depressing, and it seems cruel that the sequel that was apparently written, ''Love's Labour's '''Found''' '', is one of Shakespeare's works to have been lost.

[[{{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.

[[TheHero Naruto]], in particular, marries [[OneTrueLove Hinata]] after they finally became a couple in ''[[Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie The Last]]'', has two children with her (one of whom [[Manga/{{Boruto}} headlines a sequel series]]), and finally achieves his dream of becoming Hokage.
