* ''[[Anime/{{Patlabor}} Patlabor: The Mobile Police]]'': In every iteration of the series, Captain Gotoh finds himself [[HopelessSuitor permanently friend-zoned]] by fellow his Captain, [[LoveInterest Shinobu]] [[DeadpanSnarker Nagomu.]] But he finally gets a break in the [[{{Ultraman}} Ingram-man episode]], which ends with them becoming an OfficialCouple. Too bad it was AllJustADream.

** a similarly less-mind-screwy example is from the episode where they defeat the angel that was found in a volcano. After they've completed the mission, we briefly get to see Shinji relaxing in the hot-springs afterwards. In the English dub he even says, "this feels like Heaven..." with an almost goofy-looking grin plastered across his face. It's hard not to feel happy for him in the warm-fuzzies sense for that one brief moment. [[YankTheDogsChain Too bad it doesn't last for him]].

** Finally played straight in a {{filler}} episode of Anime/DragonBallSuper where [[MythologyGag Yamcha coaches a baseball team]] against Universe 6 and not only is he the one person who knows what he's doing, but he also manages to score the winning (and only) point of the game.

** Krillin the lesser ButtMonkey in the Dragon Ball anime does actually get a bone in ''Z''. The man dies three times (four if you count GT), and gets his head handed to on a regular basis. He's vastly outclassed by the Saiyans and to a lesser extent, Piccolo, and is routinely made fun of for his [[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged Owned Count.]] Despite this, he managed to come through and save the day on several occasions-- he oneshotted most of the saibamen, he came extremely close to killing Nappa and Vegeta, he played a critical role in foiling the bad guys' plans on Namek until Goku arrived, he sliced off part of Frieza's tail, saving Gohan's life in the process, and [[EarnYourHappyEnding he gets to marry Android #18 in the end.]]

** In the Movie ''[[Anime/DragonballZBattleOfGods Battle of Gods]]'', Vegeta ''finally'' receives one after living in Goku's shadow for the entirety of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. When Beerus slaps Bulma, Vegeta is thrown into UnstoppableRage and gives him a much better fight than even SSJ 3 Goku did, and even Muten Rushi notes that Vegeta surpassed Goku in that moment.
*** ''[[Anime/DragonballZResurrectionF Resurrection F]]'' and ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' take it a step further by having Vegeta achieve PhysicalGod levels of power entirely through his hard work, training, and force of will; Goku praises Vegeta for the feat and says that he's jealous since he couldn't achieve that level without outside assistance.

* Crona, in the anime of Manga/{{Soul Eater}}, after enduring a life of both mental and physical torture as the guinea pig/Tykebomb of the kid's [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] bitch of a mother gets a brief respite before being manipulated into joining her again. By story's end however, Crona [[EarnYourHappyEnding earns a happy ending]] after finally turning against her and nearly dying to save the heroine. The last shots of them are some refreshing (albeit humorous) bits of hanging out with their new friends.

* After thirteen episodes of being Sternbild's ChewToy, things start looking up for Kotetsu/Wild Tiger in the fourteenth episode of ''TigerAndBunny'': he manages to finish the season fourth in the rankings, people start treating him as Barnaby's equal instead of his sidekick, his boss stops acting like a total dick towards him, and [[spoiler:he seems to have gotten an unexpected power boost]]. Of course, given the ominous foreshadowing of [[spoiler:said power upgrade]] and the fact that there's still another twelve episodes to go, [[YankTheDogsChain his luck probably won't last long]]...
