* People familiar with [[Theatre/LesMiserables the musical version]] of ''Les Misérables'' are certain to be rather confused by numerous dissertations on such things as local linguistics, Hugo's thoughts on convents, the life of a side character bishop, the governance of a town, the Battle of Waterloo, and the Paris sewer system in [[Literature/LesMiserables the original work]].
** The filibustering seems to take up more space than the actual storytelling.

* Ulysses from VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas [=DLCs=] who spend his time ranting about the state of the world and how he wants to nuke everything again (Avellone don't like how the Fallout universe rebuild itself).

* Ulysses from VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas [=DLCs=] ''Lonesome Road'' [=DLC=], who spend spends most of his time ranting about the state of the world and on-screen (and [[TheVoice off]]) saying how he wants to nuke everything again (Avellone don't like "wipe the slate clean" by nuking NCR (which will also destroy the Legion in due time, due to them no longer having a strong enemy to fight). It's basically Chris Avellone projecting his ideas of how the Fallout universe rebuild itself).series is straying away from his original vision: a desolate wasteland, which no larger law to govern it.

Added DiffLines:

* Lauren Beukes' ''Broken Monsters'' has five point of view characters. Four of them focus on the main plot, centered around bizarre serial killings that may be supernatural in origin. The fifth point of view character is almost entirely focused on a side plot about cyber bullying and how NewMediaAreEvil. To boot, guess which of the five characters gets the most time in the spotlight?

* Rick Remender had Havok give a very controversial speech in ''ComicBook/UncannyAvengers''. Due to the speech's controversial nature, and likely also due to his response to many people who took offense with it (namely, by telling these people to go 'drown in hobo piss'), Remender then stops the plot dead in its tracks for three pages in a later issue, just to have two characters debate the matter. He uses the ComicBook/ScarletWitch as his AuthorAvatar, with her being portrayed as levelheaded and reasonable, while Rogue, who represents those who don't like the speech, is snippy and blinded by emotion. As you'd guess, the Scarlet Witch is portrayed as being correct, which didn't go over all that well considering Wanda's current position as TheScrappy among many ''X-Men'' fans.

* Creator/SteveDitko may be a master comic book storyteller, but when he does not have a collaborator like StanLee to restrain him, his stories are notorious for his Objectivist philosophical lectures that dominate his more personal stories. The "Mr. A" stories are by far the worst, though "The Question" could be just as bad at times.
