* ''Jak3Wastelander'' has unlockable versions of cutscenes with commentary by the game's designers and animators, giving insightful little tidbits about the game's cutscenes and machinimia in general. One of the most amusing commentaries is for a cutscene that lasts a whole five seconds: "There's a really funny story behind this scene, but I really don't have the time to tell it!"

* Each movie of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' Saga has a commentary track by George Lucas and heads of the principal production departments. They mostly discussed common knowledge facts. To the contrary, the commentary for ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' movie was much more informative, as the whole thing was rather fresh and new at the time.

Added DiffLines:

* * the director commentary for''{{Film/Equilibrium}}'' was primarily just a very long apology from writer and director Kurt Wimmer, apologizing for the various things that they had to cut corners on for bugetary reasons, and generally discribing the superior film that could have been made had they been given enough time and money.

* NewNeonMenacesEvangelion has commentary for the first two episodes that is a direct (and hilarious) satire of the various actual commentaries for ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.
* LittleKuriboh briefly released the first episode of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' with commentary, but never re-released it after his first account was banned from Youtube. A mirror has been placed [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Abridged_Audio_Commentary here]], however.

* The DVD set of ''BrokenSaints'' features a commentary track for ''every single chapter''. Many of the tracks are with the core creative team: Brooke Burgess, Andrew West, and Ian Kirby. Some include other contributers to the series. ''All'' of them feature talkative writer-director Burgess, who spends much of the time telling in-depth stories about how the series came into being, explaining the plot and dialogue in ridiculous detail, making {{Shout Out}}s to his favorite movies, books, and TV shows, and encouraging you ''not'' to listen to his performance as Gabriel on the voice-over track.

* Directors David Molina and Terry Shakespeare recorded one for the first ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' film. As befitting of a DirectToVideo title, it's nothing special either, but they reveal some nifty details, point out references and inform us that executive producer/story writer Bob Thompson kept making strange monster sounds with his mouth during production.

* ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'' movies from ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' onward each have a director's commentary on their [=DVDs=] and/or Blu-Ray Discs, which sometimes also features comments from other crew members and/or an actor. As of 2015, Marvel Studios stands as one of only two Disney-owned studios (along with Creator/{{Pixar}}) to regularly include commentaries for their latest movies.

* The ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' movie ''The End of Evangelion'' has 3 of the English voice actors/writers, who spend nearly the entire movie riffing. This particular commentary effectively [[BaseBreaker polarized the fanbase]] as to whether it was entertaining and (occasionally) insightful or insulting to the SeriousBusiness that is ''Evangelion''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrUvol0Hr7U Check out a few clips and decide for yourself.]]

* The TheyMightBeGiants video collection features commentary by John Flansburgh and John Linnell on all of their videos (as well as the TinyToons ones for "Particle Man" and "Istanbul"), with the exception of "Snail Shell": in lieu of actual commentary, they recorded an entire new song, "Complete Paranoia", that very obliquely comments on some of the things happening in the video ("I hold out my hand like a claw / the German scientist guy turns around").

* ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' had re-enactments of the story meetings between Disney and his story men. The movie itself played in a window on the corner, while the rest of the screen showed preliminary artwork.
** ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' also had a commentary made from re-enactments of story meetings, but viewers need Second Screen to see the extra pictures
