-->'''Sam:'''It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
-->'''Frodo:''' What are we holding on to, Sam?

-->'''Vincent Van Gogh''': Look at the sky. It's not dark and black and without character. The black is, in fact deep blue. And over there: lighter blue and blowing through the blues and blackness the winds swirling through the air and then shining, burning, bursting through: the stars! [the sky gradually transforms into van Gogh's painting Starry Night] And you see how they roar their light. Everywhere we look, the complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.

The air was alive with the sounds of Rahi and the crash of distant surf against the rocks.

* In ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', Silver the Hedgehog is from a polluted, post-apocalyptic BadFuture. In the present, he is overwhelmed when he sees a desert and calls it beautiful, especially its blue sky.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', which also counts as "New Zealand Is Just Awesome". Revisited, of course, in ''Film/TheHobbit''. Specifically, Sam's speech near the end of ''The Two Towers'', invokes this trope openly, reflecting on the irony of how dark things are in "the great stories" just before good triumphs, as we see Man and Ent vanquish the evil of Sauron's forces at Helm's Deep and Isengard, after a hard-fought campaign. The way the camera pans out high over this image provokes a sense of relief, and a vindication of what Sam is talking about.

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' being developed for the succeeding generation of systems, can show off the hidden beuty of Lordran even more. Of note is the first time the player gets to see Irithyll of the Boreal Valley. Which after slugging through catacombs that is essentially a ThatOneLevel, the player exits on a cliff overlooking a misty frozen medieval city illuminated by the pale moonlight.

* ''ElegyForADeadWorld'' almost namedrops the alternate title of this trope in it's announcement trailer, and it seems fairly well poised to follow through as well. A game where the whole point is to wander around alien worlds and write down whatever you're inspired to seems like a good fit for this trope.
