* Subverted by Deule, the narrator of ''Literature/CantataInCoralAndIvory'', who prefaces some of his exposition this way. He's actually presenting new information to the person he's talking to, but it would be improper for Deule to admit that his new lord doesn't know something he should.

** Averted in a slightly awkward way. The first case in each game requires the player to get a quick introduction to the gameplay details. This makes perfect sense in the first game, but requires some hoop-jumping to be plausible in subsequent games, considering they star the same main character who is obviously a seasoned lawyer at that point. The second game featured a convenient bout of amnesia, whereas the third one was actually a flashback to the second case of Mia Fey, Phoenix's mentor (strangely enough, when you actually get to play her first case she doesn't get any As You Know assistance). The fourth game introduced a new protagonist, Apollo Justice- but you can actually skip the tutorial here.

** And, again, in ''Spirit of Justice''. This time, however, the justification is that Phoenix has to explain the process of cross-examination to ''the judge'', who hasn't had to preside over a cross-examination for a witness's testimony in over twenty years, and had forgotten the protocol for the process. This happens again in 6-3, where Maya asks if Nick should be reminded of how to cross-examine Rayfa's insights for her divination seances, which ''was'' an odd new gameplay feature that had only been shown for the first time two cases ago.

* Near the end of the first season of ''Series/TrueBlood'', Bill is forced to turn someone. He is asked if he knows how to do it, and responds that, though he has never done it personally, he knows how to do it. The next few scenes consist of vampires explaining how it works, with Bill repeatedly telling them that he knows how it works.

** The fifth game ''Dual Destinies'' has this as an option and it was [[JustifiedTrope somewhat justified]]. If the player opts to get an introduction on the mechanics of the game, Phoenix (a seasoned lawyer at this point) would ask his rookie partner Athena Cykes to explain how the court system works in the game. However, it was done not so much for Phoenix's sake but for Athena's since she had just suffered a HeroicBSOD moments before. Phoenix believed that having Athena explain the rules to him would bring her confidence back up.

** The ''Retribution'' expansion pack of its sequel ''Dawn of War II'' plays with this trope during the intro level of the Blood Ravens campaign. After reviving an incapacitated sergeant who [[LeeroyJenkins went in solo to attack a Chaos position]], Diomedes will reprimand the sergeant and ask him to explain himself. Martellus will then remind Diomedes that the sergeant in question would not say anything since [{TheAtoner he had taken an oath of silence out of penance for deeds committed]].

*** This happens every time Q makes an appearance in the first couple of seasons (other than, obviously, the pilot). Characters take turns berating Q for the nasty things he's done to the Enterprise crew, recounting them in order. They all but say, "And in your next guest appearance ...." Particularly egregious in that they're not just telling a character what he obviously already knows, they're telling an omniscient character what he couldn't possibly have forgotten.

** ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'':
*** Slightly better done in the episode "In The Pale Moonlight", when Garak and Sisko are discussing a Romulan Senator who they need to convince to support their side of the Dominion War.
--->'''Garak''': His name is Vreenak. He's been a key member of the Romulan Senate for the past fourteen years. He's Secretary of the War Plans Council, Vice Chairman of the Tal Shiar, and one of the most trusted advisors to Proconsul Neral.\\
'''Sisko''': He's also the man that negotiated the non-aggression pact with the Dominion.\\
'''Garak''': Since you're familiar with him, I'll skip the rest of his biography.

* ThisMeansWar is not diplomatic. As a consequence, Charles Francis Adams, the American ambassador to England during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar, sent a note to the British government with the sentence: "It would be superfluous of me to point out to your Lordship that this is war."
