* HomestarRunner is set in a largely optimistic setting with a select few deeply cynical elements and characters. Strong Bad and The Cheat are always committing petty crimes, Bubs always swindles his customers, Coach Z has a thinly-veiled disturbing background, and the King of Town is largely friendless. Oh, and everybody dies in Teen Girl Squad.

* [[http://vimeo.com/93052696 There's a Man in the Woods]] has to be one of the most cynical short films ever made. [[KidsAreCruel It's about a small child named Sid who pretends that there is a man in the woods so that he can get all the honeysuckle to himself.]] The principal of the school Sid attends knows that there isn't a man in the woods and doesn't do anything about it other than try to get rid of the rumor. As a result, [[ThinkOfTheChildren he ends up getting fired in a fit of mass hysteria as the parents,]] [[ParentalNeglect including Sid's mom,]] [[ThinkOfTheChildren decide that he isn't doing enough to protect their precious children.]] [[FromBadToWorse The principal is unable to get any jobs at other schools]] [[AddledAddict and becomes addicted to coke and alcohol.]] In the end, [[spoiler: [[ThenLetMeBeEvil the principal becomes the man in the woods]] [[WouldHurtAChild and is implied to murder Sid.]] Unlike most cases of this, [[KarmicDeath Sid deserved it because he destroyed a principal's life just to hog all the honeysuckle.]] ]]

* ''SailorNothing'' occupies an odd place -- it's ''far'' grimmer than its inspiration ''Manga/SailorMoon'', but ultimately has a core of idealism. ThePowerOfFriendship plays an important role in keeping the heroine together, and [[spoiler:the key to defeating the BigBad ultimately turns out to be ''forgiveness'']].

* The ''[[http://youcouldmakealife.tumblr.com/ you could make a life]]'' universe has several different romance stories that fall all over the idealism/cynicism scale: [[HappilyMarried Dan and Marc]]'s and [[TheyDo Andy and Derek]]'s stories fall firmly on the left end of the scale, [[DestructiveRomance Luke and Nikita]]'s story falls ''heavily'' on the far right end of the scale, and the other stories all fall somewhere closer to the center with Mike and Liam's and David and Jake's [[OppositesAttract stories]] in particular having an [[TheCynic incurable pessimist]] as one half of the couple and an [[WideEyedIdealist equally incurable optimist]] as the other half.
