* In ''Series/DoctorWho'''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.''

:: Followed by the Eleventh Doctor deactivating "The Moment", and conferring with his past selves.
--> '''War Doctor''': ''There's still a billion billion Daleks up there!''
--> '''Eleventh Doctor''': ''Yeah there is! There is!''
--> '''Tenth Doctor''': ''But there's something those billion billion Daleks don't know.''
--> '''Clara''': ''What's that?''
--> '''Eleventh Doctor''': ''This time there's THREE of us.''
:: It only got better from there. The Time Lords still can't see the Doctor's plan to freeze Gallifrey like a Stasis Cube as feasible.
--> '''General''': ''The calculations alone would take...hundreds of years!''
--> '''11th Doctor''': ''Oh, hundreds and hundreds.''
--> '''10th Doctor''': ''But don't worry. I started a very long time ago.''
--> '''[[TheReveal 1st Doctor]]''': ''Calling the War Council of Gallifrey, this is the Doctor!''
--> '''11th Doctor''': ''[[ContinuityCavalcade You might say I've been doing it all my lives!]]''
** 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.

* 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.

* 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 entirely...but a single candle can hold it back. Crosses over with ThePowerOfLove as well.

* Professor Ozpin, BigGood of ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'', is a firm believer in the power of hope. With humanity under constant assault from the [[AnimalisticAbomination Creatures of Grimm]], it's hope for a better future - and the willingness to fight for it - that keeps the setting LovecraftLite, rather than the all-consuming darkness of a HopelessWar. Salem, Ozpin's [[BigBad opposite number]], readily acknowledges how powerful it can be.
--> '''Salem''': "It's true that a simple spark can ignite hope, breathe fire in to the hearts of the weary... The ability to derive strength from hope is undoubtedly mankind's greatest attribute. Which is why I will focus all of my power [[HopeCrusher to snuff it out.]]"

** 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:
