* In [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], when Nightmare Moon had cemented her power over Equestria in her sister's absence and all seemed lost, many citizens still held onto the flickering flames of hope; that Celestia would return and save them. Nightmare Moon proves to be GenreSavvy enough to know that her inability to completely extinguish all traces of hope would be her downfall, leading to her orchestration of [[spoiler: the Battle of Canterlot, an attempt of an all-out victory against Celestia once she returned to re-take the nation, in order to destroy all semblances of hope forever.]]

** The irony being that a scene earlier in the series, set in the Dominion HQ, shows that their leadership is GenreSavvy enough that they plan to simply wipe out every living thing on Earth as a preemptive measure to any kind of human resistance down the line.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' movie ''WesternAnimation/OperationZERO'', Grandfather's first rule over the Earth was brought to a screeching halt when the Book of KND gave the kids the hope needed to defeat him. When he returns, he's become GenreSavvy to this and knows if he doesn't completely destroy all hope, he can still be defeated.

->''"But you can't kill dreams. Not really. I mean, despair may be the thing that comes after hope, but there's still hope, right? When there's no hope you might as well be dead."'' -- '''Matthew the Raven''', ''"The Sandman: The Wake"'' by Creator/NeilGaiman

** Indeed, the Doctor in general runs on this trope: No matter how powerful the bad guys are, no matter how little time there is to save the world, he firmly believes that, as he says to Van Gogh of all people, ''There is, surprisingly, always hope.'' It's what allows him to be a Determinator.

* The end of Matt Stover's novelization of ''RevengeOfTheSith'' notes that this is the Dark Side's weakness. Darkness is all-encompassing, powerful, and will never vanish...but a single candle can hold it back. Crosses over with ThePowerOfLove as well.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
