* When he finally gets around to telling his history in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11157943/13/I-Still-Haven-t-Found-What-I-m-Looking-For I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For]]'', Harry Potter admits that [[ComesGreatResponsiblity always saving the world because he could]] was actually a rather poor choice. Fifteen hundred years of every dark wizard being stopped by him meant the world became overly reliant upon him. When an accident with a time turner flings Harry two hundred years into the future, the world's been ravaged for decades by a war between two dark wizards. And when Harry kills them, the people of the world blame him for not stopping them sooner.

*** Equal? He didn't get any real respect until the very end of ''Monsters Inc.'' when he ''was'' on the front lines getting energy from kids. Remember "I'm on the cover of a magazine!"? He might have been satisfied with his lot in life but he didn't have as much respect as Sully did.

** "Goobacks": The characters argue that although immigrants are regular people just trying to get by, unchecked immigration will harm society rather than helping it. The story supports this conclusion.

** Other honourable mentions her should go to ''Film/TheExorcist'',''Film/ThePossession'', ''Film/TheExorcismOfEmilyRose'' and every other horror film ever made about exorcisms. Exorcisms kill people, and glorifying them for the sake of cheap scares isn't exactly socially responsible.

*** A rather broken message in that the Oozma Kappa monsters ''do'' ultimately become successful scarers through a combination of hard work and sheer creativity. Mike is the only member never to do this, sticking with the standard "jump out and say 'rawr' method" and giving up when it fails him miserably. A more accurate, albeit unintentional aesop might go something like "be prepared to revise your approach multiple times."
** The film often shows that, yes, cruel people have a point. Jerks like ROR are ''correct'' in pointing out Oozma Kappa lack traditional Scaring build (but are clearly wrong for belittling them). In a sense, this notion drives Oozma Kappa to look further to prove that traditional build is not all there is to it.

** Years later, it turns out that the reason why the episode turned out this way was because one of the writers, co-creator Marta Kauffman, lost her own mother at the time. The other writers mentioned in an interview years later that the episode being written to take Phoebe's inane side would've been shot down at the table read had it not been for the circumstances surrounding it.

* Considering how ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' is an allegory for modern-day racism using mammals in place of humans, it was kind of inevitable. The movie demonstrates that intentionally [[InnocentlyInsensitive or not]], ''anybody'' can be a carrier of racism (up to and including the main characters ''themselves''), even those who are open-minded and/or suffer the most from it. While it's harsh, and not really a thing anybody wants to admit, it's pretty much how racism works in the real world. Fortunately, the blow is softened in a couple of senses; 1), it shows that anybody ''can'' overcome their biases if one acknowledges and actively on moving past them. 2) Some bigoted characters ''are'' able to become more open-minded and accepting of other groups when given the time and encouragement, such as Judy's parents and [[DaChief Chief Bogo]].
