* A central premise of the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchise is that technology and science makes life better. There's no racisim either; humans are finally getting along with each other. This is among the reasons ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'' is a bit of a BaseBreaker, as it leans more towards LuddWasRight.

* ''Series/UltramanMax'': This is a hope for the majority of the heroes throughout the series and a common ShutUpHannibal to alien invaders. [[spoiler:The DistantFinale shows that yes, it will be. Humanity has become a more peaceful, better society, it's subtly implied the Delos (the other civilization living on the planet) have come out of hiding and now live peacefully with mankind, and Kaito and Mizuki are HappilyMarried with their grandson leaving on an exploration of the galaxy.]]

It could also be more personalized, where the characters we've been following (or at least some of them) can at least look forwards to a better tomorrow.

* In ''Literature/ThePendragonAdventure'' books the original version of Third Earth, which is Earth in the 51st century, is practically perfect. It's an idealistic paradise where the humans are entirely happy, and all of knowledge and history is easily available. However, it becomes much worse once the timeline is changed.
* ''Literature/AndromedaNebula'' is the paramount example of this in the Soviet ScienceFiction literature, and it also [[FollowTheLeader started an enduring trend]] that many later novels followed, e.g. ''Literature/NoonTwentySecondCentury''. Sadly, the process of {{Deconstruction}} began upon this trope almost as soon as it became popular.

** Although technically Star Trek is more "the future will get worse before it gets much better", as seen in ''StarTrekFirstContact''.
* In season 4 of ''Series/{{Fringe}}'', Peter Bishop and Olivia Dunham are always looking forward to their perfect future in which they will raise their daughter and life will be peachy keen. Those who have seen season 5 know their future is quite the opposite...

*VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'': In Serah's time of 5AF, humanity lives in tiny communities that eeke out a living while fighting off monsters. In every timeline after that, humans are doing better. 400AF is nightmarish but once the timeline is changed, a grand soceity has been developed where the greatest problem is slight boredom. Noel comes from a BadFuture but he went back in time to invoke this trope.

--> The future looks bright
--> On that train all graphite and glitter
--> Undersea by rail
--> Ninety minutes from New York to Paris
--> Well by seventy-six we'll be A.O.K.

--> What a beautiful world this will be
--> What a glorious time to be free
* The song "The White Cliffs Of Dover" by Vera Lynn was written and recorded during the Second World War, when Lynn's assuration that ''"tomorrow, when the world is free/ just you wait and see"'' gave many Britons hope that the hardships of the war would be over one day.

* Music/KlausNomi's "Total Eclipse" from ''[[Music/KlausNomiAlbum Klaus Nomi]]'' paints a bleak picture of the world succombing into nuclear war, but his song "After The End" from ''Music/SimpleMan'' has a more hopeful message for people on Earth after the nuclear explosion. Well, kind of:
--> ''Well, the freak shall inherit the earth now''
--> ''No matter how well done or rare''
--> ''But I'm telling you hold on, hold on''
--> ''Tomorrow we'll be there''
--> ''We'll build our radioactive castles''
