** The major theme of ''Film/RogueOne''. The Empire might have a super weapon, the Rebellion suffered a massive beating and [[spoiler: the major heroes all died]] but the plans for the Death Star have been transmitted and the movie segues into ''Film/ANewHope''.

* The ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' episode ''[[Call to Action Recap/StarWarsRebelsS1E11CallToAction]]'' has this as a driving theme, as the Rebels attempt to hijack a communications tower and pass along a message of hope to the population. What is notable is that the villains also recognize this fact, as Tarkin points out that what makes the cell on Lorthal dangerous is that they are principled.

* ''[[Manga/GalaxyExpress999 Maetel Legend]]'' ends with the entire population of Andromeda subjected to UnwillingRoboticisation, including TheHighQueen, who turns from a just, selfless ruler into a ruthless tyrant, who offs her EvilChancellor ''because she is just [[EvilerThanThou eviler than him]] now''. And yet, both of her daughters, [[Anime/QueenEmeraldas Emeraldas]] and Maetel, escape both the roboticisation and her death squads and manage to flee the planet to find a way to undo their mother's mistakes.



* In the "Hope" trailer for ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', Jace Malcolm says it only takes a single spark of courage to ignite the fires of hope and bring peace to the galaxy.

* In the "Hope" trailer for ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', Jace Malcolm says it only takes a single spark of courage to ignite the fires of hope and bring peace to the galaxy. He says that as it seems that he and a single Jedi Knight are [[EverybodysDeadDave all that's left]] of the Republic's defense force after a brutal skirmish with the Sith. He then launches a signal flare, and the camera zooms out dramatically to reveal hundreds, if not thousands such flares rising over the forests of Alderaan.

* This is the message of "Reach Out (I'll Be There)" by the Four Tops. The girl's life might be falling apart, but all she need do is reach out, and he'll be there. And he will see her through the trials and tribulations life will throw at her, because there's still hope.

** A less literal example comes in the form of Kamina's [[Determinator Never give up spirit]] which he inherited from his dead father [[spoiler: then passes it down to Team Dai-Gurren, especially [[BloodBrothers Simon]] after his death, giving them the strength to continue the fight.]]

* Hope is what sustains Andy Dufrense after his false-conviction and incarceration in ''TheShawshankRedemption''. He and Red even get into an argument over having Hope in prison, with Andy saying it is necessary and Red saying that it is dangerous. Eventually, Red comes to Andy's point of view.
--> "Remember, Red? Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies."
