* In the Music/PeterGabriel / Music/KateBush collaboration "Don't Give Up", Gabriel sings the part of a man who has been unemployed for a long time now, doesn't have many prospects at all, and is beginning to despair about taking care of his family. The chorus, sung by Bush, is the man's family, reassuring him that no matter what happens, he shouldn't give up, because they still believe in him. In the end, he decides to tough it out for his family's sake, even though he knows that it might just get worse before it gets better.
-->''Don't give up, 'cause you have friends.''
-->''Don't give up, you're not the only one.''
-->''Don't give up, no reason to be ashamed.''
-->''Don't give up, you still have us.''
-->''Don't give up now, we're proud of who you are.''
-->''Don't give up, you know it's never been easy.''
-->''Don't give up, 'cause I believe there's a place where we belong.''

*** 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.

*** At least, hope without the willpower to change things is meaningless, as in ''[[ComicBook/GreenLantern]]'' where the Blue Lanterns are nearly useless without a Green Lantern around.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' makes this a literal thing: Spiral Power is generated by one's fighting spirit so as long as a member of the Spiral Race (aka humans) have hope, they can and most likely will win.

* At the end of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels, the Emperor has taken power, Anakin Skywalker has [[FallenHero fallen to evil]], the Jedi order is destroyed, Yoda and Obi-Wan have been driven into exile, and the Republic has been turned into the oppressive Galactic Empire. But TheAlliance has begun to form and the Skywalker twins have been [[MosesInTheBullrushes hidden from their father]], Darth Vader, and they both will become [[TitleDrop a new hope]].

However, all is not lost. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood The villain does not and cannot realize one thing:]] though the heroes who tried to stop him have failed, and may well have died, '''Hope lives on''', and with it, the HeroicSpirit survives. Even now, a rudimentary version of LaResistance is forming because word has spread that a ChosenOne has appeared after being sent off like MosesInTheBullrushes. The now-dead heroes who opposed the BigBad [[FlingALightIntoTheFuture sent a weapon through time to the future]] that can defeat the UltimateEvil.
