** In the Season 1 episode "Griffon the Brush Off," Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie take caution not to prank Fluttershy due to her sensitive nature, and it's a plot point that Gilda doesn't have that kind of restraint and gets Fluttershy upset. In the Season 6 episode "28 Pranks Later," Rainbow Dash not only has to relearn "You don't just prank anyone you see"(and even pranks Spike in an incredibly similar way), but she loses that inhibition in the meantime and pranks Fluttershy during the ColdOpen.

** It's Sirius himself who tells Harry, Ron and Hermione in ''Goblet of Fire'' that a good way to get the measure of a person is to see how they treat their inferiors. In that specific case, it was referring to Crouch and his house-elf. Sirius appears to have forgotten this when dealing with his own house-elf in ''Order of the Phoenix.'' However Dumbledore points out [[spoiler:after Sirius' death]] that Sirius wasn't particularly bad to House-Elves, he just hated Kreacher because they, to him, represented the house and life he hated. Also Kreacher comes across as a very unpleasant character, with his talk of pure-blood supremacy and insulting Sirius.

* Eddy from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' lives and breathes this trope. Most of the Eds' failure in their scams are mostly his fault, and [[TheCassandra no matter how many times Edd warns him of a significant flaw, Eddy always ignores him instantly]]. It's not just the scams either. Eddy continues to taunt the likes of Sarah and Kevin even after the times each of those two characters, especially the former, have given the Eds a good beating in many occasions. Heck Edd actually lampshades this in two episodes when it came to Sarah. [[spoiler: After the kids are horribly injured thanks to another one of Eddy's scams, they attempt to run after the Eds, who attempt to escape to the amusement park to go to Eddy's brother for safety. When the kids finally confront the Eds, they witness the pain Eddy suffers in the hands of his brother and are downright distraught. After Eddy's brother is defeated thanks to Ed, Eddy finally learns that all he had to do was be himself, and the Eds finally gain acceptance from the kids.]]
** Then there's the kids themselves. You would think that after the 50th time the kids were bilked out of their money by the Eds they'd learn not to ever give them a cent and never listen to a word they say. However, since the central premise of most episodes is based around the attempts by the Eds to scam the other kids only to be caught or otherwise fail miserably, the Cul de sac kids have to fall for the Eds' scams over and over and keep giving them their allowances almost every episode for the series to be able to work.

** Tim also constantly learns that showing off or using something ridiculously overpowered for the job he's trying to do is going to end badly. Except when he doesn't, which is why he's on a first name basis with the doctors and nurses at the emergency room.

* Each of the Literature/{{Animorphs}} seem to have to learn the exact same lesson in each one of the books they star in, only to have the exact same flaw confronted and conquered again their next book. Jake learns not to be so uptight/be a better leader, Rachel learns not to take so much joy in the action/be a little less psychotic, Marco learns to take things more seriously/not be so pessimistic, Ax learns not to treat his human friends as inferior... Tobias is easily the worst, in EVERY book he narrates he laments being stuck, willingly or not, in his hawk form and has to learn to accept his situation for the sake of his friends and the war and move on. The only exception seems to be Cassie, the token pacifist of the group, who seems to always be right from the beginning.

* Possibly intentional in Season 5 of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'', which has several episodes in which Puss and the San Lorenzans learn not to ignore ButtMonkey Eames, but never seem to remember this, because it's Eames, and he's just that forgettable.
