* In ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'', Cuddles (the character who has died the most) and Giggles (the runner-up) are in a relationship. Episodes showing this, however, end with both of them dying horribly...except for one. The episode "I Nub You" have them as a counterpoint to the romance between Handy and the newly-handless Petunia. (Cuddles pushes Giggles on a swing: Handy finds doing the same tricky, so they just ride a see-saw; Cuddles and Giggles hold hands: Handy and Petunia tie their bandages together, and so on). Although Petunia and Handy, as the stars of the episode, die horribly, Cuddles and Giggles get to live.
* Santa Christ wiping ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial'' from WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's mind. Seeing as how the Critic was pretty much made to be abused... we guess [[EvenEvilHasStandards even Doug and Rob have limits.]]
** The ending of his "Commercials Special" is more obvious. After being nearly completely broken, he gets his confidence back through [[TheCastShowoff a song]].
** "Sequels Month" saw the Critic being put through the wringer by some incredibly bad movies. The next video after that was ''Film/DungeonsAndDragons'', in which he was upbeat, enthusiastic and thought the film was fantastic SoBadItsGood fun.
* At the end of ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', Linkara [[RunningGag finally]] gets to sing something.
** Earlier, there was [[spoiler:the reveal that WebVideo/ThatDudeInTheSuede was the next guardian]], which not only lead to a very sweet reunion for many of the reviewers, but meant that the very tired crew was spared one fight and were lead directly to the Gauntlet.
** Though he won't realize it until the next movie, Ma-Ti saves the world and is mourned by Critic and the others.
* In WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee, Ma-Ti becomes a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, wanting Critic to destroy the world because of how he treated him. Instead, Critic apologizes for the abuse and tells the kid that he was always useful.
* WebOriginal/FluffyPony is based around cute little fluffies ponies suffering. When a story or picture comes along with ''any'' fluffies being happy without any drawbacks, it's like throwing a bone to the whole species.
* [[{{Wiki/SCPFoundation}} SCP-053 and SCP-682]] are this to each other. 053 is a little girl who drives everyone over the age of 10 to try to kill her by her mere presence, and 682 is an OmnicidalManiac who the Foundation has tried to kill uncountable times and seems to hold our entire world in utter disgust. [[{{SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments}} 053 draws flowers on 682, who cuddles with her.]]
* Since LetsPlay/{{Strippin}} agreed to [[NerdsAreSexy model shirtless]] if the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} raised over £80,000 in 2012 for charity, he was allowed to shave Tom ([=IBringTheFunk=]) when they raised over one million dollars the next year. [[Music/{{Area 11}} Sparkles*]] lampshaded this.
* LetsPlay/SimonLane tends to jokingly mock LetsPlay/KimRichards on a regular basis, but after he was nominated to do the ALS Ice Bucket challenge, he let Kim pour the cold water on his head.
* ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'':
** After constantly being rejected and having a lot of extremely painful mishaps, Mario finally gets a girlfriend (Rosalina) in "Mario's New Girlfriend", and the episode ends with him keeping her.
** In Part 5 of the "Chef Pee Pee Quits!" saga, Chef Pee Pee managed to get a job at [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Freddy Fazbear's Pizza]] which turned out to be a dream job and was all he could have ever wanted, given the animatronics made him pizza and he was being appreciated. By the end of the episode, he still has the job. [[YankTheDogsChain Too bad the place burned down by Part 6]].
** "[[BirthdayEpisode Chef Pee Pee's Birthday Surprise!]]" has Bowser Junior realize it's Chef Pee Pee's Birthday and throw a surprise party for him. He screws up a lot while doing it, but Chef Pee Pee still enjoys the party.
* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'': Despite being a SadistShow, full to the brim with BlackComedy, the show resident {{Butt Monkey}}s occasionally get a bone:
** Cheerilee is constantly pushed around, insulted, and even manipulated ''by her own students''. But after one of the girls schemes leads to her [[WhatDidIDoLastNight waking up married to Big Mac, on a bed in the hole in the middle of the road]], they go on to be HappilyMarried.
** Luna is finally accepted by Ponyville, at the end of "Utter Lunacy". Though zigzagged, as she doesn't no how exactly that happened and the episode ends on her being utterly confused.
** Spike, who is treated like a slave by his clingy "adopted mother"/owner Twilight on top of being a general ButtMonkey. But unlike Twilight, The Mane Six ''actually showed up'' for his birthday. Also, he occasionally gets away with making a snide remark at Twilight.
** [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Rainbow Dash]] probably ties with Spike and Luna for biggest ButtMonkey of the cast, without even counting her HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood. Never the less, she actually gets a few of these:
*** After (accidentally) saving a child in a well, she is briefly treated as a hero. She also went for ice cream with Scootaloo later on, who herself is the NoRespectGuy in the CMC.
*** Her human counterpart in The Equestria Girls universe, is the most popular girl in school.
*** Soarin accepting her as his adopted daughter, after going her whole life without a parental figure who genuinely loved her.
*** Pinkie Pie 2 actually standing up for her, [[ItMakesSenseInContext after Cheese Sandwhich mistakes her for a demon and tries to kill her.]]
* ''WebAnimation/MyLittlePonyMeets'':
** Lyra and Bonbon are victims of constant physical abuse, without doing anything to deserve it, what so ever. But in [[spoiler: Toucan LDM meets My Little Pony, they manage to lore ''the very creator of the show'' to Ponyville, and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown get to have a little well deserved payback.]]]]
*** To a much lesser extent in [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]] meets, where it briefly looks like they are going to be hit by something.. only for nothing to happen.
*** Subverted in TheJoker meets, where they see The Batmobile about to crash into them, like it did in the original ''ComicBook/BatMan'' meets, only for Lyra to grab Bonbon saying "not this time" and teleporting them away at the last second.. [[spoiler: off of a cliff.]]
** After being beat up in early episodes, Spike actually gets to be a hero in both [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]] meets where he aids Rarity in saving the titular character and ''Film/{{Godzilla}}'' meets, where in his "monster form" he fights '''Godzilla to a draw''' and is celebrated by Ponyville, after [[spoiler: convincing the Kaiju to go peacefully.]]
