* Like with Beauty and the Beast, the endless number of sequels of ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'' have been criticized for having the characters recycle their personalities(even if their personalities barely resemble their originals. For example, in the first film {{Jerkass}} Cera goes through character development about accepting help from others, that sometimes accepting help is needed, and that being a jerkass won't get you far in life, all while living in a CrapsackWorld. You'd think that after surviving a incredibly dangerous journey she'd have changed, but EVERY sequel always has her start of a Jerkass and learn to accept help and stop being a jerkass, but no matter how dangerous the journey, she's always back to being a jerkass at the start of the nest movie.

* In ''Series/TheFlash'', Barry has had to learn in about half of the episodes not to hide to his friends and family information that most certainly concerns them. Each and every single time this backfires, and each time he "learns" the lesson, then promptly proceeds to do the exact same thing next episode.

** Mabel Pines is suffering from this trope is so blatant it may well turn out to be deliberate, considering how her arc appears to be moving towards a [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstruction]] of this. Her Aesop Amnesia and often uncriticized rude behavior becomes ''[[DeconstructedTrope part of the plot]]'' when [[spoiler:it's subtly revealed that she's completely aware of how her actions have hurt others, but she's so afraid of growing up that she still refuses to change. Eventually this causes a crash in her relationship with her brother and even brings about ''[[HellOnEarth the end of the world'']]]].

* In ''Series/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' Mr. Poe repeatedly fails to learn that Count Olaf will not leave the Boudelaires alone, nor that he should believe them when they tell him the person who is obviously Count Olaf in disguise is Count Olaf. After the third time his evil plot is revealed they give up and flee, certain the lesson will never stick.

* Rodimus in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' learns a valuable lesson about taking responsibility and not being such a lazy jackass all the time. He forgets it basically the moment the Dark Cybertron crossover ends and goes right back to napping on the job and pretending to be dead to get out of difficult questions.
