* ''Series/DoctorWho''

to:

* ''Series/DoctorWho''''Series/DoctorWho'': There are recurring aesops, usually tied to The Doctor or humanity. [[ThePowerOfFriendship Sometimes friends leave, and it hurts, but that doesn't make your friendship any less meaningful. Sometimes you need a loved one to keep you in check.]] [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism Humans, while we're given a short time on Earth and are sometimes cruel, can make a meaningful impact.]] Etc.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' (repeatedly) with their Wheel of Morality, which would provide a random "moral of the story" for the episode that was usually humorous and ''always'' had nothing to do with the episode.

to:

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' (repeatedly) gave an aesop very occasionally. But as a cartoon centered around just being silly, the cartoon usually made a point of parodying aesops. They did this (on a regular basis) with their Wheel of Morality, which would provide a random "moral of the story" for the episode that was usually humorous and ''always'' had nothing to do with the episode.

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' shows that no matter how powerful or terrifying the enemy is, you can beat them as long as you persevere and work together. It mirrors the message of ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' except that the message is significantly more positive and triumphant.

** Religious fanaticism cannot save people or defeat evil, and a dogmatic religion will either be used as a [[CorruptChurch cover for corruption]] or lead to the methods of a KnightTemplar. The Conviction Arc features Bishop Mozgus' misguided attempts to purify his flock through inquisition, torture, and execution, which cause hundreds of innocent deaths. Even though he genuinely believes his actions are for the greater good, he is deluded and ultimately leads all his followers to their doom; The only ones who survive the collapse of the tower are those like Guts and Luca who took their fate into their own hands rather than waiting for God to save them. Schierke delivers an Aesop to a priest after fighting the trolls in Enoch village that it's okay to believe in the supernatural, but you have to be open minded about it and see the world beyond ours for what it really is instead of what dogma tells you to see. A small example of this is how Schierke was unable to see [[InvisibleToNormals Puck]] when she was serving the Church, but became able to see elves once she started opening her mind.

* Played straight with ''{{Birdz}}'', although they're not heavy-handed since they're often skewed to the avian universe (e.g. [[spoiler:Eddie learning the hard way that he should study the map and pack properly during migration season]]).
