* The world of ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' is a pretty bleak one. Inside, you've got an insane AI trying to kill you. Outside, you've got the Combine invasion, which, judging by VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}, has led to partly drained oceans, alien lifeforms inhabiting large portions of the planet, no children for the past fifteen or twenty years, and a severely culled human population under the iron fist of alien overlords. But the end of VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}, taking place an unknown number of years later, shows a beautiful field of grain waving in the wind... so maybe humanity survives and triumphs after all! [[spoiler:The Art Therapy DLC later proves that man did survive, as we can hear someone yelling at the bird once it flies away.]]

* Things are looking pretty grim for the heroes of ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'' by chapter 15 - the cat tank is kaput, Sigrun's injury might be septic, poor Tuuri is still clinging to hope that her [[spoiler: [[AllTrollsAreDifferent troll bite]] from chapter 13 doesn't [[ZombieInfectee turn out to be infected]]]], and a band of vicious trolls is hot on the heels of our explorers. When Lalli and Emil are sent into a long-abandoned store to do a little shopping, Emil spots [[http://www.sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=728 a flower growing under a pane of fallen glass]]. He [[http://www.sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=730 points it out to Lalli]], hoping to cheer the other up, but Lalli's fatalistic attitude isn't improving any time soon. The flower [[http://www.sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=734 gets smushed]] several pages later when the pane of glass topples over, which puts a damper on Emil's mood too.

--> '''Emil''' (In Swedish): See that? It's almost spring! Soon we'll be back in the embrace of civilization, and it'll be summer. I know you're worried about... things. But you believe in magic stuff, doesn't that look like a good sign to you? It's tough right now, but I ''know'' we'll come out of this happier than we were coming in. Because no matter what, we'll at least be friends. Right? ''Friends''? Come on, I ''know'' you understood that last word!
--> '''Lalli''' (In Finnish): You don't understand ''anything''.

* The ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' movie has Lyn carting around a flower. It gets knocked out of her hands near the end, and the last shot before the credits is a small field of flowers grown from where it got knocked down... somehow...

* Towards the beginning of ''PlanetHulk'', the slaves cleaning up after the Hulk's gladiatorial debut discover a plant growing from his spilled blood, on land previously thought totally infertile. By the time Hulk becomes emperor, the barren lands are lush with vegetation, all owing to that single plant.

* In the first ''[[SuikodenI Suikoden]]'', the farmer Blackman is found in the burned-out ruins of Kalekka, stubbornly caring for his seedlings. He only joins the [[OneHundredAndEight Stars of Destiny]] if you avoid stepping on his plants. But why would you do such a thing, anyway...?
