* ''OnePiece'' is a series that is about dreams and freedom,, expressed through piracy. This is especially apparent with the [[MagneticHero transformative qualities of the protagonist]]. Of course, for ''major'' characters, this seems to translate to "leave whatever the hell you're doing and [[RuleOfCool do something unexpected]]". The emphasis on dreams goes both ways: with villains, the protagonist doesn't kill them, but leaves them alive [[AFateWorseThanDeath to watch their hopes and dreams crumble around them.]]

* In ''ShamanKing'', many characters seek the power of the greatest spirit in order to fulfill their dreams, though Yoh, the protagonist, seeks it in order to not be bothered by having to work for anything anymore. To him, it's logical to work himself to death (literally) if it means freedom later in life. Some characters are so caught up in the concept of needing the Great Spirit to accomplish their goal that they forget they could do it anyway.
* Some of the [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan Tailed-Beast Hosts]] from ''{{Naruto}}'' seek freedom from the stigma of being the hosts of demons, and thus the requirement of being war machines. Killer Bee, host of the Eight-Tails, fakes his death so he can get away from his responsibilities.

* ''SamuraiJack'' faced a viking warrior cursed by Aku. The man was mystically bound by his stone surroundings, and could not die unless he was killed in battle. Being an excellent warrior as well as a stone giant, actually finding a warrior skilled enough to defeat him in honorable combat (so as to join his fallen brethren in Valhalla) and break the curse of eternal-life-within-stone was near-impossible until Jack came along.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' animated series had the Genosha story arc, where mutants were enslaved to use their powers for labor. They were told they'd be released when the work was done. [[BlatantLies Yeah...]]

* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'': After a certain point in the Cobra Island Arc, Crona grows sick and tired of Medusa because she/he comes to the conclusion she will continue to haunt everyone unless he/she does something about it personally. Only then will Crona believe he/she will be free from Medusa's hold, and this is the driving motivation behind the final confrontation with her.

* One goal of the Deryni characters in Creator/KatherineKurtz's books is this, at least it's certainly on the list (once the rebellions and invasions and assassins are defeated). Kelson is exhorted to be a king to humans and Deryni by a figure of Camber visible only to Deryni, and he founds a new ''scola'' to preserve and teach Deryni magic and ethics. Essentially, Kelson, his courtiers and others aspire to TheUnmasquedWorld, which would imply this trope.

* In one episode of ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'', Joe falls for a girl named Maya who turns out to be working for Galactor -- but only because her parents and siblings all work for Galactor. Unlike them, she wants out and the Onna Taicho (Female Captain) [[spoiler: Berg Katse in female form]] promised Maya that she could leave if Maya successfully captured and killed the Science Ninja Team. However, [[YouHaveFailedMe Maya fails of course and Berg Katse kills her.]] Worse, [[KickTheDog Berg Katse asks Maya what made her think she could ever leave Galactor alive. Jerk]].

** The final book also has a dragon, basically enslaved by Gringotts' bank to guard a particular fortune, that wants this. In the film version, they ''really'' drive it home, presenting a brief scene where the poor decrepit creature looks longingly at a distant light, climbs as fast as it can to get there and once it's finally out, it just sits there and takes a deep, refreshed breath.
