** Episode 57:
-->'''Ashley:''' Guys... I've got an idea, just hear me out: [[BeYourself Maybe we should just like whatever it is we like]]. And if other people start liking it too, that's not bad. In fact, it probably means that whatever it is we like is pretty good. Only now we have people we can share it with. And if nobody else likes it, well, that's okay too, because it makes us happy.
** Episode 82:
-->'''Mackenzie:''' ''(to Brittnay and Trisha)'' I decided I'm not gonna drop out of school after all. ...Look, all I've ever wanted to do was to just find a way to escape all these bitches and assholes we go to school with. But since we got here, Jeannie betrayed us, those French ''cunts'' tried to kill us, and I realized, it doesn't matter where you go, there's always gonna be bitches and assholes in your life. So the only thing you can do is surround yourself with the few bitches and assholes you can actually stand being around. And for me, that's you guys.

** The series in general loves [[PlayingWithATrope playing with]] aesops, so one of the few sort of straight examples comes from "Socrates Squared". After [[OtherMeAnnoysMe having to put up with his duplicate for the episode]], Socrates finally learns how obnoxious his personality is. He refuses to give up his [[ThePrankster pranking]] ways, however, and one of the characters remarks "Meh. Better than nothing."

* The theme of ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' revolves around gambling with the Devil, which is strongly advised against, and it has a moral: When you get yourself into trouble, it's up to you to put in your blood, sweat and tears to get yourself out of trouble.

* ''VideoGame/EnduroRacer'': The game decides to give you this surprisingly heartfelt speech for some reason, upon reaching the goal:
--> “Enduro” is a symbolic journey through life via the media of a race. The results are insignificant and what really counts is competing. Of particular importance are the lessons to be learned concerning one’s self from the various encounters you experience along the way. There is no victor or loser in this test of endurance. The only thing that matters is that you make a commitment to begin the long and trying trek. This game is then dedicated to all of the “life riders” who have started out on the solitary trip to find their own individual limits. Last, but not least, may we sincerely congratulate you on a perfect run.

* ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' has Aesops in a few episodes, but they're unique in that they're woven subtly into the narrative of the episode instead of being shoved down your throat. Examples:
** The moral of "Sounds Abound" is "Performing experiments is better when you're doing them with your friends".
** An overall theme of the show is "Failure is a stepping stone to success"
** "Kid-Kart Derby" has two: "Winning isn't everything" is the main one and "Don't cheat" is the minor one
** The show had a BeYourself Aesop in the episode "My Fair Jet" that was surprisingly PlayedForDrama
** "Jet 2" - "It's not good to stay jealous"
** "Space Junk" - "Knowing there's a problem should make you want to help solve it"
** "Jet's Time Machine" had a ''very'' important one - "You can't change the past, you can only learn from it"

In some quarters AnAesop delivered to another character, often a child, directly is referred to as a "[[LittleJimmy You See, Timmy]]" from the frequent use of that line to deliver the {{Aesop}} in the television show ''Series/{{Lassie}}''. This definition was put forth originally in the movie ''Speechless''.

* ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' is one giant blizzard of Aesop. No, seriously: Whether it be an itty bitty side mission, a conversation with a random NPC, or the grand scheme of the plot, you are constantly exposed to new aesops. To this day, ''Deus Ex'' is still held in high regard for the neutrality it took in these aesops, allowing the player to make their own judgment calls. The main "choice" throughout is to decide whether or not common people can be trusted to make the right decision, or if someone should secretly make those decisions for them. [[spoiler: on the final level, choosing to manipulate the public allows you to live. But the only option that gives them the freedom to shape their own opinion requires a HeroicSacrifice on your part.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/StoppitAndTidyup'' is one of the few shows aimed at young kids that averts this, as none of the episodes seem to have a moral in them.

* Most chapters of ''[[Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn My Little Unicorn: Magic Is Believing]]'', end with the Grand Ruler giving an Aesop that is tangentially related to the events of the chapter. Unfortunately, the supposed morals are pretty weak and their connection to the main Aesop of "believing" is not very clear. However, these were removed from the retooling, until the Website/DeviantART version which reinstates most of them.
