* ''VisualNovel/SilverCrisis'' has a huge part of the story focus on whether Strength comes from raw power, or from your own will/mindset and the help of others. The Scale slides towards the Cynical Side for most of the plot, with moments such as Lucas’s constant losing streak and status of being [[TheLoad a burden to Lucario]], Silver and Ganondorf’s Overwhelming Power, and [[spoiler: the Corruption of Lucario’s former trainer in pursuit of this]] leaning on the side of “Raw Power means everything”. [[spoiler: But by the end of the story, the scale lands firmly on the Idealistic side, showing that the trust Lucas and Lucario had for one another is what truly defeated Silver, as well as Lucas’s strength of heart and willingness to better himself being what allows him to truly unlock his hidden power and become truly strong.]]

For a simple, archetypal example, let's assume that the idea to believe in is HumansAreGood[=/=]RousseauWasRight. In idealistic series, [[FriendToAllLivingthings those who believed it]] got [[ThePowerOfFriendship lots of friends]] and a HappyEnding (therefore, RightMakesMight), while cynical series are {{Crapsack World}}s where [[WideEyedIdealist those who believed it]] got ruthlessly bullied by [[HumansAreBastards everyone else]] (therefore, MightMakesRight). Of course, the definitions of "Right" and "Crapsack" in the above can technically mean whatever one wants them to mean.
