* JimmyBuffett's "Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On" is a TearJerker tribute to New Orleans and what it endured during Hurricane Katrina, but the constant message of the song is that in the end, there is always hope.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': A recurring theme in the show, particularly by [[SamuraiJack/TropesSeason5 Season 5]], is that Jack has become [[HopeBringer a beacon of hope]] under Aku's dark reign. [[spoiler:XCVII is basically a Continuity Cavalcade showing people who Jack has inspired and saved who went on to see him such.]]

** Deconstructed with Nagito Komaeda from the [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2 second game]]: he's convinced that hope will always triumph over despair, so he'll deliberately make an already existing despair ''worse'' so that the subsequent hope may be even brighter.

* Brutally averted in the first part of Dante's ''{{Literature/The Divine Comedy}}''. In fact, what makes Dante's Inferno so frightful is the '''absolute absence''' of any hope of future redemption. Every soul who is destined to cross the river Acheron has no other choice than keep going and let the divine judgment be fulfilled as soon as possible. This is clarified by the verses carved onto the Door of Hell:

* In [[DoctorWho Doctor Who's]] Fiftieth Anniversary episode The Day of the Doctor, the 10th and 11th Doctors both show up on Gallifrey with the War Doctor, telling him that they can no longer deny that he was them, that he did all he could during the Time War, and that this time, he won't have to push the BigRedButton alone, that if Gallifrey is doomed, then they will share that burden together. And then, thanks to a RousingSpeech by Clara, the Eleventh Doctor ''changes his mind.''

* Bob Dylan's ''To Make You Feel My Love'' is sung from the point of view of a man who is in love with a woman whose life has treated her harshly, and who has especially had bad luck when it comes to romantic relationships. The lyrics gently tell her to never give up hope, because there's still someone who loves her:

* Efforts to preserve critically-endangered species persist, and even become ''more'' intense, if the habitat of origin for that species no longer exists and their numbers have fallen so low that genetic diversity is nil, Even if every last individual dies, dead specimens' DNA is preserved in the hope that they might someday be restored via not-yet-extant technologies.

* Efforts to preserve critically-endangered species persist, and even become ''more'' intense, if the habitat of origin for that species no longer exists and their numbers have fallen so low that genetic diversity is nil, Even if every last individual dies, dead specimens' DNA is preserved in the hope that they might someday be restored via not-yet-extant technologies. For no current species is this more evident than the white rhinoceros, which is caught in an arms race between conservationalists, who have increasingly heavy human security on each individual rhino; and the wealthy buyers of their horns, who will pay the poachers increasingly handsome rewards to retrieve one.

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', All Might deliberately cultivated this image for himself: By defeating villains in public, he hopes to inspire other people to fight crime and stand up against injustice. For much of his career as a superhero, he's successful at this--until he's critically wounded in a fight against his ArchNemesis, All for One. This event causes doubt and uncertainty to spread among society at large, villains become more bold and brazen, and the other heroes start getting overwhelmed. In a more literal sense, All Might's SuperStrength can be passed down from person to person, and each inheritor thus far has used it to become symbols of hope like All Might.

* A persistent theme of ''Frachise/DarkSouls''; no matter how many times you die, no matter how badly the world has suffered, no matter how hopeless the given situation is, there is still some glimmer of resolve to draw strength from and carry on with, [[ArcSymbol like tiny embers dancing amongst the dark.]] WordOfGod even states that quitting the game is emblematic of your character finally going Hollow, so the theme even works in a meta-sense.
** Two of the three endings for ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' draw upon this theme more heavily than the rest of the series; [[spoiler: Choosing ''The End of Fire'' sees the Fire Keeper take the last embers of the First Flame and snuffing them out, ending the eternal cycle of light and dark in the hopes that a new Age of Fire will come about on its own rather than through the continuous perpetuation of a self-destructive cycle. Choosing ''The Usurpation of Fire'' turns into either a GoldenEnding or EarnYourBadEnding depending on your interpretation, but it certainly seems hopeful from mankind's perspective; having gained the power of the Dark Soul from Yoel of Londor and wresting the remains of the First Flame from their mantle, you can now finish the process King Vendrick started in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' by using the power of both to break humanity out of the cycle entirely, allowing them to ascend as the rightful rulers of the world with you as their Lord of Hollows.]]
