* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' can end with one of these in the End Times book ''Ascension.'' It's a long uphill struggle, but so long as the players survive the disasters overtaking the world, succeed in uniting the Traditions and the Technocracy under a peaceful banner and stop the Grand Harvester of Souls, ultimately the forces of Paradox break down in the wake of the ongoing Avatar Storm; humanity [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence transcends the bonds of physical reality]], and ''everyone in the game is rewarded with a happy ending.'' The Mages all see their visions of magic realized as true in their own private worlds; the [[WellIntentionedExtremist Technocracy]] gets the utopia it always wanted, with every possible vision of a perfect world coming true - from the NWO's vision of a perfectly ordered society, to [[{{Cyborg}} Iteration X]]'s dream of a technological [[TheSingularity Singularity]]; the [[CloudCuckooLander Marauders]] all have their own private dreamworlds where they can play with reality without hurting anyone; even ''[[OmnicidalManiac the Nephandi]]'' get a happy ending, willingly punishing themselves with the Hells they wanted to descend to.

* ''Manga/MedakaBox'' ends with about 99% of the cast happy: the villains were redeemed through ThePowerOfFriendship, and after a 10-year TimeSkip we see that everyone seems to have settled into adulthood quite well -- even the 5000-year-old FallenHero FinalBoss Iihiko (or rather, an echo of his pre-fallen self) finds a place to belong. The two main exceptions are Kumagawa, who nobody's heard from in years, and Anshin'in-san, who was killed by Iihiko; however, their friends believe that Kumagawa isn't the type of guy to contact them unless he needs help[[note]]And some fans suspect that he's HappilyMarried to Mogana Kikaijima, his former Student Council member with whom he had a ton of ShipTease[[/note]], and Anshin'in will more than likely be [[CompleteImmortality coming back to life in the near future]]. Also not counted is [[TheManBehindTheMan Professor Fukurou]], who was also killed by Iihiko, and was such a twisted creep that redemption was probably impossible.
** A smaller, more literal version happens at the very end where Zenkichi, meeting with Medaka for the first time in years, challenges her to a sparring match and says that if he wins, she has to marry him. Medaka grins and says that if she wins, ''he'' has to marry ''her''.

** "Too Hot To Handle". The alien Solar Terrarians require a hot climate to be comfortable, but they've polluted their planet so much that its climate has grown too cold for them. They try to alter the Earth's climate to make it hot enough so they can live here (which would kill all humans on Earth), but the SuperFriends foil their plan. The Super Friends go to the alien's home planet and clean up the pollution, allowing the aliens to continue to live there in comfort.

** "The Watermen". An alien spaceship runs out of fuel and crashes on Earth. The aliens try to extract more fuel (silicon) from seawater, but this causes a red tide-like effect in the ocean. The SuperFriends track down the aliens and stop their mining activities, but also provide them with enough silicon to return home.

** "Dr. Pelagian's War". The title ecoterrorist uses his control of the weather and the oceans to try to stop three business people from polluting. Although the SuperFriends capture him, all three of the business people agree to stop their polluting so he effectively wins.

* [[http://john.seikdel.net/gocomics.php?date=811102&comic=blm This]] ''BloomCounty'' strip, which also [[TropesAreNotBad demonstrates an upside]] to BookBurning: as long as the burners are ''buying'' their kindling, the customers are satisfied, the stores that sold them their materials get paid, and the offending creator of the works destroyed gets another big fat royalty check.

* The ''Series/DoctotWho'' 50th anniversary episode "The Day of the Doctor" ends with the humans and Zygons forming a perfect peace treaty, the Eleventh Doctor being told that [[spoiler: Gallifrey falls no more]], and even the War Doctor finding some hope to hold onto [[spoiler: in his final moments]].

* In the ''[[ElfQuest ElfQuest Holiday Special]]'' episode there's a major grudge fight between Cutter and Rayek where they almost end up killing each other. The win-win part is that it lets Cutter burn out his (admittedly justified) aggression toward Rayek, allowing them to become allies, if not actual friends just yet.

* ''WinWin'' only sort of has a Win Win Ending. Sure, Leo gets to stay in his own house, Kyle gets to stay in New Providence, and Cindy is out of the immediate picture -- but she gets $1500 a month for nothing while Mike has to take a second job and Kyle may have blown his chance at a wrestling scholarship.
* A version in ''ThorTheDarkWorld'': [[spoiler:Thor gets to do what he wants: travel the worlds righting wrongs, fighting evil, and being with Jane Foster, without worrying about being king of Asgard, which he doesn't ''want'' anymore. Meanwhile, Loki gets what ''he'' wants: the throne of Asgard -- which even Odin and Thor came to believe he was better suited temperamentally to occupy than Thor -- no one the wiser, his adopted mother's killer dead, and Thor out of the picture). Even better, everyone else thinks he died a hero's death.]]
