* The five issues long series ''Comicbook/{{Warrior}}'', a licensed comic about every ProfessionalWrestling fan's favorite crackpot, The Wrestling/UltimateWarrior, is one great big WallOfText after another meant to elucidate the reader on Warrior's bizarre mystical-reactionary philosophy, and paint Warrior as {{Jesus}}. Between the sheer density of the text and the preponderance of made up words (just what in the blue hell is "Destrucity", anyway?)[[note]] The comic actually does provide a definition for the word, but somehow it causes the word to make ''even less'' sense than before.[[/note]], it confused its few readers so badly that both the third and the fourth issues had to open with an explanation of the previous issues (with the recap on the fourth issue being a footnote and unreadable due to being black text on black paper). The one issue this doesn't apply to? The Christmas special, a completely dialog-less issue in which Warrior goes to the North Pole, [[{{Squick}} puts Santa in bondage]], steals his clothes ''[[spoiler:and possibly rapes him]]''. There's a reason that every wrestling fan on the planet has agreed that the guy is nucking futs. It's bad enough to [[http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/bt/spoonyone/reviews/7238-warrior1 mess with the space-time continuum!]]

** Quagmire's epic TheReasonYouSuckSpeech toward Brian in ''Jerome is the New Black'' seems to be a LampshadeHanging and a calling out of the many times Brian has been used as an author mouthpiece.

* The author of ''Webcomic/CrimsonDark'' took the opportunity, in the [[http://www.davidcsimon.com/crimsondark/index.php?view=comic&strip_id=583 January 30, 2017 strip,]] to voice their opinions on President UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump instead of posting a new comic, though at that point the story had just ended with a cliffhanger so it's not interrupting the plot.

* ''WebComic/LeastICouldDo'' has a few arcs where protagonist Rayne will lecture other characters (and usually the audience) about how he's right any anyone who disagrees is wrong; probably the most infamous example is an arc set at a convention where he outright says "Webcomics suck", mainly because most webcomic artists don't[=/=]can't keep a consistent release schedule. The fact that nobody can ever debate Rayne, and that onlookers usually treat him like a genius, does nothing to help the perception that Rayne is Ryan Sohmer's AuthorAvatar GaryStu character.



** 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 even uses the episode to playfully take a jab at himself. Let's just say he doesn't look good in spandex and leave it at that. Regardless, if this had come from anyone else, it might not be nearly as effective.

Let's just say he doesn't look good grumpy "Meh." (Dini's frequent collaborator Bruce Timm appears standing next to him in spandex and leave it at that. Regardless, if this had come from anyone else, it might not be nearly as effective.Joker cosplay, BTW.)

* Literature/TheExecutioner series of action novels was written by Don Pendleton in the 1970's in response to the anti-war and "violence doesn't solve anything" attitudes of the time. Its hero, Vietnam veteran turned [[VigilanteMan vigilante]] Mack Bolan, spends entire chapters pondering the morality of violence and the nature of his "war everlasting".

Added DiffLines:

* The climax of ''Literature/TheSilverChair'' features a ShutUpHannibal about the value of faith. Even ''if'' [[CrystalDragonJesus Aslan]] and the surface world aren't objectively real, [[DeterminedDefeatist Puddleglum]] asserts, his belief is far more meaningful than the villain's bleak world. The speech still manages to be rather impressive; it helps that it's not too long-winded as far as Author Filibusters go.

* ''{{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]].

*** Yahtzee has also taken the same stance against the ''SonicTheHedgehog'' series by taking time out of his review of a Sonic game to remind viewers that Sonic is beyond the point of saving and how Sega should just put Sonic out of his misery.

* MovieBob has a REALLY long extended rant on MeganFox in ''Jennifer's Body''- it isn't until the 2-minute mark that he starts talking about the actual film because he feels he has to get off his chest his annoyance at how overrated she is as either an actress ''or'' a sex symbol.

** Well, despite the show's silliness...[[DumbassHasAPoint it's a very valid point to make]]. Though what a message like that is doing in a kids cartoon show is anyone's guess...

* Warren Ellis' ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'', whose main character's inflammatory news articles, while only sometimes political, and definitely in-character (insofar as Spider is an homage to Hunter S. Thompson), are too long and detailed to NOT also be the author's viewpoint.
