** Lampshaded and Played for Laughs. As Rayleigh limited Luffy's access to the outside world during his two years of training, Luffy, and, by extension, us, missed out on several major events in ''One Piece'' universe. Notable events are [[spoiler:the fall of every island of Whitebeard, the Battle between Akainu and Aokiji, Aokiji's resignation and Akainu's promotion to Fleet Admiral, Sengoku and Garp's resignation, Law and Buggy as the new Warlords of the Sea, the new danger to the Devil Fruit users, Blackbeard's usurping of Whitebeard's Four Emperors seat, his crew's rise to power, the moves of the Revolutionaries, and most notably ''how exactly'' [[CurbStompBattle Blackbeard usurped the above mentioned seat]].]] But, these above events changed the power of the world so much, that these are household talks. Quoth Usopp:

* {{Averted}} in ''Film/EvilDead2013'', as significant bits of exposition are given to the audience in the form of the other characters telling David things he bloody well ''should'' know about his sister Mia like her drug habits, but doesn't because he ran off and left her alone with their mother who was suffering with dementia, the issues of which led her to becoming addicted in the first place.

* In the old ''GreenHornet'' film serials, after shooting an enemy with his signature KnockoutGas gun the titular hero [[OncePerEpisode always]] made a point of reminding anyone who happened to be with him at the time that "he's not dead, just unconscious".

* Stated verbatim in Chapter 2 of ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'' by [[BaldBlackLeaderGuy Hammond]] upon entering [[spoiler:Zero-G Therapy to retrieve the shock pad needed to break through the barrier to the Morgue]]; "AsYouKnow, the Ishimura is able to set it's gravity locally. Your grav-boots will kick in when you enter a zero-g area."

** A different kind of example, but still a {{subversion}}: In "Years of Yarncraft" (See: ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''), Torg is in the game fighting an NPC enemy who talks mostly in character [[MediumAwareness (even though he knows he's an NPC)]] and tries to start talking about the backstory that brought Torg to fight him. Torg interrupts him and says he [[PlayTheGameSkipTheStory doesn't care about the story, only the loot]].

** Another good example occurred on The Day of Black Sun, when Zuko is finishing up in the throne room confronting his father, and about to leave. Fire Lord Ozai tries to keep Zuko around long enough for the sun to come back with a mention of his Missing Mom. The story starts with: "My father, Fire Lord Azulon..." Did Ozai not expect Zuko (much like the vast majority of the audience at home) not to know who has been his grandfather, and Fire Lord, for the vast majority of his life? I'm pretty sure they were trying to rope in new viewers at the time, and were probably trying to explain things to them, but the words still sounded weird.

* The ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape from Reality" begins this way, with [[TheSmartGuy Dipper]] telling [[ManChild Soos]] and [[CoolBigSis Wendy]] [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt what happened]] in Part 1 and that they're currently trying to save [[TheHeart Mabel]], despite the two of them already knowing this.

** Spoofed, in another instance, when a Radioactive Man villain stops going over her plan, and announces "I have a sudden, irrelevant desire to recount my origin!" Cue her henchmen groaning and complaining about how she did this at breakfast.
** And earlier than that, in another Radioactive Man story, a creature is expositing his plans, only to stop and angrily announce "why am I doing this? I ''know'' what my plan is!"

* The novel ''Mirage'' by Creator/JamesFollett is based on the real life espionage by Israel of the blueprints of the Mirage fighter aircraft after France stopped supplying the aircraft and parts after the initial sale and Israel wanted to keep the ones they had in flying condition (and eventually built their own version, the Kfir). During the briefing given during the planning of the operation a politician asks why they can't simply reverse-engineer or copy parts from their existing stocks or by removing them from planes. While one engineer who obviously knows why has a "for god's sake" reaction a second more people savvy engineer cuts him off saying that from a layman's perspective it's a reasonable question and deserves an answer. He then explains about while they might be able to physically copy the shape of a particular part it's much harder to exactly duplicate the alloy used and the manufacturing processes such as the correct hardening and tempering required to make the part able to correctly handle the stresses involved in combat flight conditions. He uses the analogy of his pocket lighter saying that if they made their best efforts, they could eventually duplicate the lighter but it's performance would be inferior to the production model and prone to malfunction and unexpected failures. Multiplying the few components of the lighter up to thousands of parts in a modern jet fighter makes the entire idea untenable. The politician then understands the reason detailed blueprints with all of the technical specifications of each part are required and gives the go ahead to the espionage attempt.
* Justified in ''Literature/FitzpatricksWar'' as the general history of how the world turned into a post-apocalyptic steampunk Neo-British Empire-dominated dystopia [[LectureAsExposition is recited in a verbal exam]] by the novel's protagonist, Robert Mayfair Bruce. Coincidentally Bruce was shocked to have gotten such an easy topic.

* In Japanese and Korean, "as you know" is used when stating a new fact rather than "did you know?" to avoid unintentionally insulting the listener if they already know it.
