** The Twelfth Doctor's tenure as a whole (Series 8-10) seems to be running on the overarching Aesop "Always do the right thing no matter what trouble and harm befalls you and others for doing so" -- AKA BeingGoodSucks. Besides his forgiving Clara in "Dark Water" and accepting karmic punishment in "Hell Bent", in Series 10 he's mostly confined to TheSlowPath guarding a Vault that contains [[spoiler: Missy, one of the most dangerous criminals in the universe]] because his other option, [[spoiler: executing her]], was not as virtuous. Five episodes in he ends up [[spoiler: permanently blinded when he saves Bill from asphyxiation]] by way of taking responsibility for rash, selfish actions. As "Extremis" puts it, a person can't be '''truly''' good unless they're good [[WhatYouAreInTheDark "Without hope, without witness, without reward."]]

* ''FanFic/ShatteredReflection'': This ''VideoGames/FireEmblemAwakening'' has a pretty interesting lesson taught to the two main protagonists through experience with the ''other'' protagonists. [[BeingGoodSucks No matter how hard you try to do right by others and support the people you love, there will still be individuals who treat you like shit for completely arbitrary reasons. You should try to do the right thing anyway.]]

** From ''Steven vs Amethyst''; despite the old saying "You can be anything you set your mind to", sometimes RealityEnsues and you just ''can't'' be something you are just not physically or mentally capable of doing. Amethyst has to accept that she will never be a huge Quartz soldier like Jasper, and only after accepting that does she start to accept the things she ''can'' do, which still makes her pretty great.

** Also there's Avatar Yangchen's conversation with Aang which says that while the desire to preserve all life is admirable, trying to spare the Fire Lord with no alternative solution is ultimately a selfish action to make himself feel better at the cost of everyone else.
** ''The Great Divide'': Lying through your teeth is an acceptable and effective way to resolve deeply ingrained disputes. And plus, girls think it's hot.

else. Interestingly, this also outright defies Aang and Yangchen's Air Nomad background: she argues that the duty of the Avatar is above personal spiritual fulfillment.
** ''The Great Divide'': Lying through your teeth is an acceptable and effective way to resolve deeply ingrained disputes. And plus, girls think it's hot. Amusingly, this is a contributing factor to that episode's general dislike both InUniverse and out of it; the characters within the Ember Island Players episode directly talk about skipping the canyon entirely.

--> '''Nicole:''' Okay, kids. Sometimes when you're an adult, you have to lie. All of the time about absolutely everything and never show your feelings because it's impolite, sit on them when you die and bury them with you like the ancient egyptians did.

** After Steven successfully uses ThePowerOfFriendship and ThePowerOfLove during the first two seasons to befriend Lapis, Peridot, and [[spoiler: The Cluster]], you'd think that the show's main theme would be "Love Conquers All", right? Nope! In Season 3, Steven's confrontations with [[spoiler:Bismuth, Jasper and Eyeball]] force him to learn two very harsh Aesops. One, in lots of cases, [[RealityEnsues reasoning and showing kindness to somebody won't be enough to convince them to change their ways]]. Two, pacifism is an extremely admirable trait, but you have to understand that sometimes ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption when dealing with an enemy that will stop at nothing until they see you dead.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_182kIOPRvo This anti-tobacco ad]] from the Truth campaign mentions that smokers earn less money than non-smokers. Ignoring the accuracy or lack thereof, the ad doesn't portray this as a case of wage discrimination, but instead uses this fact to encourage smokers to quit, as if [[UnfortunateImplications they deserve lower wages because of their habit]].
