Not to be confused with [[NavalGazing Contemplating Our Navy]]. If the viewers get to contemplate a character's navel, it's BareYourMidriff.

* ''[[WesternAnimation/TheTick The Tick vs. the Protoclown]]'': Tick gets knocked into orbit unconscious, and his mind (a six-winged vision of his head) tells him he can only get home by answering the question "Why am I here?" [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind The Tick's brain]] is mostly desert. There's the pleasure center (a giant smiley face that will make him enter an endless coma of ecstasy), the brain's defense mechanisms (little Ticks armed with fish), and a giant Tick statue that will answer only one question ("How's it going?") The Tick eventually stumbles across the answer himself: "[[CompletelyMissingThePoint I'm here because]] [[RuleOfFunny a big clown hit me]]!"

* ''Anime/PsychoPass'': Several characters would usually discuss philosophy and societal issues with others or among themselves, most especially in the ''New Edit''. [[BigBad Shogo Makishima]] is the biggest offender of this trope.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' gets into this a lot in the later seasons, in sharp contrast with the zany humor of the earlier ones. Episodes like The Mountain, Hall of Egress, The Comet and others all revolve around themes of making peace with one's place in the universe and letting go of one's earthly ties (or voluntarily choosing not to), often accompanied by appropriately trippy visuals and the occasional {{Koan}}.

** The early-season episode, Astral Beast, parodied this concept in a sillier way, though it does introduce Finn's spirit animal (butterflies) which are often used for symbolic purposes in the later navel-gazing episodes.

* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** Spoofed[=/=]{{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', during case 3:
--->'''Trucy:''' This is no time for navel-gazing! Let's crack this case!
** Made fun of in ''Justice For All''.
--->'''Edgeworth:''' This is a trial, not the Phoenix Wright Wax Philosophical Power Hour!



* '' VisualNovel/{{Narcissu}}'' and its prequel, ''Narcissu 2nd'', are made of this trope. There's not really much of a plot, just sick chicks musing about life, fate, & religion before they (inevitably) die.
