* ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers1956'', the book ended with the Pods picking up and leaving after realizing that humanity will never stop fighting them, and the town slowly returning to normal. The movie adaption has a bleaker ending (even with the semi-hopeful Framing Sequence placed by ExecutiveMeddling), and the first and second remakes are bleaker still.

** ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'': In the original myth, Hercules kills Megara and their children in a fit of madness set upon him by Hera. It's one of the ''first'' things Herc does as an adult. All of his heroic deeds involving lions and hydras are forms of [[TheAtoner atonement]]. Of course, this Hercules is ''Hera's'' son[[note]]Hercules' parentage varies DependingOnTheWriter - some myths have him as Zeus' (naturally illegitimate) offspring (Hera, ''Goddess of marriage'', was always faithful to her husband) and given the name "Heracles" - "Beloved of Hera" - to try and deflect some of the expected heat from the Goddess.[[/note]], and she isn't even slightly antagonistic, and the whole thing's been thoroughly [[{{Disneyfication}} Disneyfied]], so Herc and Meg are probably fine.


Added DiffLines:

* As usual with Moses and the Ten Commandments' adaptations, this happens in ''WesternAnimation/ATaleOfEgypt''. It leaves out the Hebrew incidents and the punishment of Moses' generation not seeing the Promised Land.

* ''Film/TheLionInWinter'' ends with Henry II escaping the plots against him, and preparing to face the future with renewed vitality. According to TheOtherWiki, he died six years later. Phillip and Richard raised arms against him, and Henry was too sick to do anything other than make a complete surrender. John publicly sided against him, and learning that was [[DespairEventHorizon the final shock that killed him]].

* ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'' does this ''in story'', with author WilliamGoldman's fictional father, who's been reading only "the good parts" of the story-within-a-story, leaving off the over-the-top NoEnding paragraph which states that as the heroes ride into the sunset, Inigo's wound reopens, Fezzik takes a wrong turn, Buttercup's horse throws a shoe, and Humperdink is hot on their trail.

* Some cast albums of musicals end on a happier note than the show does, since older musicals tended not to fully score their more downbeat moments. An egregious case is ''Theatre/GoldenBoy'', where the original cast recording's "Finale" ends with the crowd cheering at the conclusion of the big fight; the show's continuation, however, reveals that [[CasualtyInTheRing the loser died]], the knowledge of which causes the winner to be DrivenToSuicide.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'' ends with the Federation and Zeon finally resolving their conflicts and the implication that [[BittersweetEnding peace would finally be achieved]] in the Universal Century after so much bloodshed. That is if you didn't watch any of the Gundam series set after that. Chronologically, ''Unicorn'' takes place decades before the brutal [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91 Cosmo Babylonia War]] and, much later, the even more gruesome [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Zanscare War]], which may be even worse than the One Year War, the Gryps Conflict and the various Neo Zeon incursions. Nevertheless, by revealing the contents of Laplace's Box, Banagher and Mineva ''finally'' put a hopeful end to a century awash in blood and tears, even if for just twenty-odd years.
