** When the Dominion War starts and they occupy Deep Space Nine, Jake remains behind to report on it. A few months in, he finds out the Dominion is preventing his articles reporting on their oppressive policies from being delivered to his publisher, and actually tries to invoke freedom of the press.

* ''Film/WallStreet'': This serves as Bud Fox's FatalFlaw. He is [[NaiveNewcomer too wide-eyed]] about [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Gordon Gekko's schemes]], as [[BigBad Gekko]] is solely driven by greed and wants him to obtain information by any means necessary, even if it's illegal. Bud also wanted to be like Gekko, but doesn't realize the costs of having such a lifestyle [[spoiler:[[BittersweetEnding until it was too late.]]]]

** Keitaro in ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'' just wants to [[ForHappiness make people happy]], which would be easier to do if he wasn't in one of the darker installments of the franchise. Compounded by the fact that (aside from one non-canon instance) he is incapable of using any of the [[TransformationTrinket Rider Gear]] despite how much as [[RefusedByTheCall he'd like to.]]

* ''Anime/ReCreators'': Of all the fictional characters that come to the real world, [[MagicalGirl Mamika Kirameki]] is the only one who comes from a children's TV show. Therefore, she believes everyone is basically good and they can all be friends. Unfortunately, the other characters do not share her sense of idealism and her attempts to stop conflicts ultimately fall on deaf ears. Over time, she loses her naivety but remains as idealistic as ever. [[spoiler:[[KillTheCutie Unfortunately, this earns her a horrible death.]]]]

* Danny, Hermione, and Ron in the ''Fanfic/PrincessOfTheBlacks'' series are at least as idealistic as canon despite the setting being DarkerAndEdgier. Notably, they're convinced that they can get Hagrid exonerated after he admits to kidnapping and smuggling a giant across international borders (both ''very'' serious crimes) to an auror. [[RealityEnsues Naturally, they fail]].

* In ''Theatre/AnyoneCanWhistle'', Hapgood confesses to Fay that being this was what made him functionally insane:
-->"Until this morning, I was probably the craziest man in the world. Because I was not only an idealist, I was a practising idealist! Now ''that is mad''; it's thankless; and it's absolutely exhausting!"

* ''Steven from WesternAnimation/{{Steven Universe}} is this in spades. However, unlike some other Idealists, he actually survives, making this a possible subversion.
