* Deconstructed in the infamous ''[[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren and Stimpy]]'' episode [[Recap/RenandStimpy2x07SonofStimpy Son of Stimpy]], as a means of indirectly criticizing Hollywood productions that creator Creator/JohnKricfalusi feels rely more on this trope (and others), and less on the actors' acting and the interactions of the characters. He intentionally wrote the episode the way he did in order to prove the point that it wasn't that difficult to stir the viewers' emotions by using certain theatrical and music tricks in a story[[note]]Or even an entire production as a whole.[[/note]] that (he feels) has no real substance.[[note]]"And [he] didn't have to [[Disney/{{Bambi}} shoot anyone's mother]], either." He also cites ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' as another film that he feels relies more on "fake pathos" and less on the interactions between the characters.[[/note]] The article in question has all of the "stinky" details.[[note]]i.e., to the point where "stinky" is...uh, an important plot point. Be warned, this episode really is that stupid. Again, however, this was intentional, so that he could prove the previously mentioned point.[[/note]]

* ''SpaceBattleshipYamato'' does this for ImperialJapan, with the interesting workaround that it takes place in TheFuture where the protagonists must fight against hostile aliens, because no decent person could ever do a rose-tinted narative about the ''actual'' [[MoralEventHorizon WWII-era Japan]]. Co-creator Creator/LeijiMatsumoto is admittedly heavily influenced by the 19th century Romantic writers & artists.

The Romantic movement of the 19th century was a style of art that stirred the emotions, like sadness, joy and nostalgia. Later, some people used that style to put things they favor in an idealized manner, even if such things were already seen as positive.

The subjects of these works could be people, places, events, ideologies or other things. Although these are only occasionally accurate to the facts, they can still make for great stories. If taken too far, on the other hand, they can make their subjects into {{Mary Sue}}s or {{Mary Suetopia}}s.
