** The reprise of ''Fancy Dress'' at the end of Act I is a DarkReprise for all except Feldzieg, who has, by all accounts, won: Janet has called off the marriage and is presumably going to return to the stage, Kitty isn't as much of a talentless airhead as she appears, and the gangsters ''didn't'' kill Feldzieg. For him, the day's going ''great'', and so while all else are sad over the wedding, he is triumphantly singing the same words.
** The reprise of ''As We Stumble Along'' starts off melancholy as the Man In the Chair reflects on his life and his shows. However, when the characters of ''The Drowsy Chaperone'' join him onstage, it goes from bittersweet to triumphant as he's joined by the last (and only) friends he seems to have.
* The stage adaptation of ''Theatre/{{Footloose}}'' begins with Rusty, Wendy Jo, and Urleen singing the titular song ''Footloose'' about how they're constantly being worked and can't let loose in any way. The show ends with the cast reprising ''Footloose'' as a song celebrating that they're finally able to dance in Beaumont, modifying the lyrics from "I've got this feeling/That time is holding me down" to "I've got this feeling/That time's no longer holding me down".

** In ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', the music for the Beast's TransformationSequence is a triumphant version of the Prologue music, and the film proper ends with a choral reprise of the title song. The ScreenToStageAdaptation's finale also includes a reprise of "If I Can't Love Her".
*** There's also a smaller one earlier in the film when Belle sings a reprise of [[IWantSong "Belle"]] after having rebuked Gaston.

Her", and the [[Film/BeautyAndTheBeast Live-Action Remake]] has "Evermore", which also uses the Prologue music in a more triumphant form (somewhat ironically, because "Evermore" is a song about how the Beast is now cursed to eternal life - without Belle).

** ''NierAutomata'' follows suit in [[spoiler: Ending E. As you battle through a bullet-hell credits boss worthy of Touhou's infamous Lunatic mode, "Weight of the World" plays. When you die--and you will die, as the minigame becomes [[UnwinnableByDesign intentionally impossible]] by the time you hit the QA team if not before--players connected to their respective system's network [[YouAreNotAlone will begin to receive messages from other players all around the world, encouraging them.]] Enough deaths, as the game itself tries to convince you to give up and abandon the task, and you'll receive [[BigDamnHeroes last-minute]] [[TheCavalry reinforcements]] in the form of six ships circling you, comprised of other players' data, forming an impenetrable shield. At this point, "Weight of the World" kicks into a swelling, trilingual chorus as you absolutely curbstomp through the rest of the credits (and any destroyed fighters shielding you are immediately replaced with someone else's).]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' pulls off a triumphant reprise of its main theme over the final scene of season 1 and the ending credits. It's so effective it's hard not to leap into the air pumping your fist and cheering as soon as it cuts to black. [[spoiler: ''DRAGONS'']], dude!

** While the "The Throne Is Mine" during Joffrey's purge of Robert's bastards is the DarkReprise of the Baratheon theme, it segues into a triumphant rendition of "Black of Hair" when Gendry escapes to safety. Robert Baratheon's theme also gets a triumphant reprise when Gendry learns his true parentage in "The Bear and the Maiden Fair".
** "The King In The North" is reprised, not for Robb, who died in the previous episode, but for Bran as he goes to the Wall in "Mhysa".
