* In Canadian court, one noted case was ''[[https://www.canlii.org/en/ab/abqb/doc/2012/2012abqb571/2012abqb571.html Meads v. Meads,]]'' 2012 ABQB 571, in which Justice J.D. Rooke ostensibly ''could'' have wrapped up the case in a neat bow with a few pages, but instead reached the breaking point and delivered, before the final verdict, a diatribe of ''well'' over a hundred pages, documenting what he calls 'OPCA Litigants'.[[note]]In other contexts, these may be more well-known as 'Sovereign Citizens' or 'Freemen on the Land'.[[/note]] Since then, the ''Meads'' decision has been used as precedent for many other cases, but some have noted that its confrontational and often dismissive tone has led to other Justices treating such cases more harshly than would otherwise be the case.

This wasn't intended merely as a diatribe against a growing flood of futile, annoying, and wasteful litigation; it was also designed to be a convenient compendium of commonly raised OPCA arguments and explanations of why they are (preposterously) wrong in law. The goal was to relieve counsel and other judges of the need to scour the jurisprudence for refutations of these arguments, as well as to provide a sort of very long explanatory pamphlet that can be given to self-represented litigants to dissuade them from trying to use OPCA strategies. As a result, the ''Meads'' decision has been used as precedent for many other cases, but some have noted that its confrontational and often dismissive tone has led to other Justices treating such cases more harshly than would otherwise be the case.

* Kreia in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicII'' has plenty of long-winded complaints and deconstructive analysis of ''everything'' from the morality of the StarWars universe to role-playing mechanics themselves. Chris Avellone has a philosophy degree, and consumed the entire EU before writing the game. He uses Kreia to rail about the things that irritated him, namely the constant HappyEndingOverride and everything being attributed to "the will of the Force." Your character's potential counter-arguments, offered as dialog options, are uniformly weak and poorly-reasoned.

* ''Webcomic/NerfNow'' has had these, especially prevalent post 2012. Early strips about NerfNow were cutsey things and game humour, but a lot of recent strips have been the author giving her opinion about something in the form of some political cartoon, or even adding some particularly Anvillicious commentary. (Thoughs ometimes, they really [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped dropped]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' has a Bat-Mite episode which cuts away to a comics convention where Bat-Mite explains to the audience that the version of Batman with goofy villains is as valid a use of the source material as the grim Batman.
** Interestingly enough, the episode in question was written by Paul Dini, who not only wrote the [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries best known grim animated Batman]] for quite some time, but took a playful jab at himself by inserting himself into the episode as a CrossPlayer dressed as Harley Quinn who responds to Bat-Mite's speech with a grumpy "Meh." (Dini's frequent collaborator Bruce Timm appears standing next to him in Joker cosplay, BTW.)

adaptations of the character, in reference to fans who have been complaining that ''Brave and the Bold'' should be more like ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''.

* Cosmo gets a short one in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' about how [[ReligionIsWrong religion is bad]] because it divides people and prevents them from working together to solve their problems. Fortunately, it's incorporated into the episode's overall narrative about two feuding religious sects of Marmolims, so it isn't as jarring as other examples.
