"If you do end up losing everything else...I'll be there to bring you hope."
Souma Haruto, Kamen Rider Wizard

"I am the final hope."
Souma Haruto, Kamen Rider Wizard

Hackett: Shepard, let me tell you something that I've learned the hard way. You can pay a soldier to fire a gun. You can pay him to charge the enemy and take a hill. But you can't pay him to believe.
Shepard: ...I don't follow, sir.
Hackett: When you went up against Sovereign, there was no good reason to believe you'd win. But your crew didn't seem to care — they went along anyway. Your trip through the Omega 4 relay? That was a suicide mission if there ever was one. Yet there your crew was, standing beside you, proud to serve. With all you're facing out there, one thing impresses me most: you inspire confidence. I know everything hasn't gone as well as you'd hoped. Every war has its disagreements, so to speak. But... Your crew has done things no one else would even try — simply because you asked them to. Why? Because they believed in you. Their leader. That's what I need now.

"Hey... won't you believe in him? That...even if there is no God or Buddha...There IS Kamen Rider!"
Taki Kazuya, Kamen Rider Spirits

"All right, children. It's time for Three Dog to be honest with ya. Here it is, plain as day - I used to think we were all well and truly fucked. The good ole U.S. of A? Ahhh, she's a mess. I had pretty much written us all off. But that was before a certain kid from Vault 101... I've always given it to you straight, have I not? For good or ill, Galaxy News Radio has been the voice of truth on these airwaves. So believe me when I tell you that I was wrong. Dead wrong. That kid from Vault 101 is the last, best hope of humanity. We'll get through this, children. You just gotta believe."
Three Dog, Fallout 3

"If someone tells me that it's wrong to hope, I'll tell them they're wrong every time."
Kaname Madoka, Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Lord Ruler: I killed you, once.
Kelsier: You tried. But you can't kill me, Lord Tyrant. I represent the thing you've never been able to kill, no matter how hard you try. I am hope.

Oh, child of the noble family of the Immaculate Dragons. Do not despair. Though your mind is fevered and your senses are not with you, know that you will be made whole. For many years I have plumbed the mysteries of life and death. For all of my life I have meditated upon the mysteries of the healing hearts. Now, let go of your fear.
— Sample quote for Ragara Bhagwei

The Moment: You know that sound the TARDIS makes? That wheezing, groaning? That sound brings hope.
The War Doctor: Yes, I like to think so.
The Moment: To anyone who hears it, Doctor. Anyone. Even you.
Doctor Who, "The Day of the Doctor"

"Follow me, brothers! Follow the Blue Lantern! Even if you lose hope, I have enough for us all!
Now fight and believe! ALL WILL BE WELL!"
Saint Walker, Green Lantern

Sorin: I suppose false hope is better than none.
Nahiri: Any hope is better than none. Always.

"This world needs a symbol. It needs the Superman."
"I bring hope. All is not lost."

"How can the world know fear Ė true dread Ė when there is you? A stalwart knight, ever ready to slay monsters. Fear isnít true biology, Batman. Itís more than instinct. True fear is the absence of hope. And hope is the spread wings of a bat, shining in the clouds."
Scarecrow, Batman: Arkham Knight

She thinks of the Pearl again, the one with the swords and the fiery eyes. She wonders if that Pearl fuses, since that Pearl has already done so many things that Pearls do not do. She wonders what it feels like, to break the rules, to break everything known to her. She wonders what feeling is, if itís the ache inside of her to know. She wonders if it matters. She is just a Pearl.
She is a Pearl, and she has something inside of her now. Questions. Knowledge. Forbidden things, for a Pearl. She keeps them, and kindles them, and wonders.
(...)
She will remember, and she will wait, and she will watch, because she is a Pearl. Because Pearls are not empty. Pearls are not nothing. And, perhaps, one day, she will show this to another Pearl. Perhaps that Pearl will show another, perhaps the next will pass it along, until they are all Pearls like that first one. Perhaps, one day, Pearls will not have to be empty and rebellions will not have to fail. Until then, they can wait. Pearls are good at waiting.
— The Steven Universe fic Vacant, displaying a recursive example of the trope

I remember the day after my son died. The entire underground was devoid of hope. The future had once again been taken from us by the humans. In a fit of anger, I declared war. I said that I would destroy any human that came here. I would use their souls to become godlike...and free us from this terrible prison. Then, I would destroy humanity...And let monsters rule the surface, in peace. Soon, the people's hopes returned. My wife, however, became disgusted with my actions. She left this place, never to be seen again. Truthfully... I do not want power. I do not want to hurt anyone. I just wanted everyone to have hope...I cannot take this any longer. I just want to see my wife. I just want to see my child...
Asgore Dreemurr from Undertale, showing just what kind of effect this trope has on said bringer

There's more to the Void Engineers than endless war (though you wouldn't know it to hear some of the Border Corpsmen bitch in a bar). We fight to keep the flame of exploration alive in the hearts and minds of the Masses. Because if they don't dream of the stars, we'll lose everything. Every Void Engineer beyond the Biospheric Horizon is there because he or she dreamed of being there. And we lose good people every day. If we don't keep inspiring, we'll lose everything we've worked for since the Order of Reason formed. If we don't keep inspiring, there is no future for humanity, whether up among the stars or down on the mudball.
