* ''Manga/BloomIntoYou'' has an example in the SchoolPlay that [[ShowWithinAShow the main characters are putting on in-universe]]. The play stars a girl who's lost her memory, and gets visits from three people close to her who see her three different ways- her schoolmate sees her as TheAce StudentCouncilPresident, her brother sees her as an AloofBigSister, and her lover claims she has a vulnerable side that she only shows when they're together. Facing an identity crisis, the main character chooses to act the way her lover saw her as, thus sending a message that it's better to live the way someone else sees you than to be yourself. Because Touko, who plays the girl, has felt pressured to "become" her seemingly perfect sister after the latter's death in a car accident, Yuu convinces Koyomi to change the ending so that the main character's nurse convinces her to just be herself, resulting in the main character telling the other three that she intends to start over. Most of the student council besides Touko likes the new ending better, partly because they believe this outcome makes more sense.

* ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'': Sometimes, divorce actually ''is'' the best option for a struggling couple, especially if children are involved, and most couples who get divorced ''don't'' get back together. Also, people who are way too different from one another cannot function together as a romantic couple, especially in the long run.



* ''Film/Utoya22Juli'':
** There are no safe places left anymore. Tragedy can strike at any time, at any place. Very terrifying, but sadly true.
** Doing what's right comes at a cost. In the worst case, you die for it (Compare ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''). That doen't mean it's wrong to do so, but you must be aware of the cost.
** Alternatively: No matter how clever and brave you are, if you are caught in a shooting, and don't have skills useful against attackers, you [[RunOrDie run or hide ASAP!]] - trying to play a hero will get you uselessly killed.

-->--'''WebOriginal/TheMysteriousMrEnter''': "Maybe I'd listen to what you had to say if this movie wasn't such a disgusting waste of time! Do you know ''why'' you should have a point? BECAUSE NO-ONE WANTS TO SEE ANY OF THE SHIT YOU'VE THROWN INTO MY FUCKING FACE!"

* The ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' Movie has the characters come to the conclusion at the end that a GrossOutShow shouldn't need an aesop tacked on to the end to justify it. This doesn't work because shock humour only works when there is a moral to be worked in so the mockery is in good jest. Every joke in the film is made as obscenely grotesque as possible and is either an OverlyLongGag, a TakeThat or both. This movie uses [[ILoveTheDead necrophilia jokes]] to prove why we would not want to see creators make offensive humour for the sake of it. On top of that, the film repeatedly attacks ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' for supposedly being crude humour with lazily tacked-on morals to justify it, something which is [[ShallowParody not only inaccurate]] but also [[{{Hypocrite}} incredibly hypocritical]].

* ''WebAnimation/PokemonRusty'': Rusty is the worst pokemon trainer ever, destroying everything before him and turning one of the weakest pokemon in existence into a sociopathic PhysicalGod. But apparently, his sandwiches (which he hates making) are so good that they earn the respect of everyone around him, including said super-pokemon. So apparently the overall aesop is, you can't do anything right if you follow your dreams, but if you obey your masters and know your place, gods will bow before you.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': Uraraka is a girl who wishes to become a hero [[OnlyInItForTheMoney because its a well paying job]]. When she feels that this is an impure reason to do so, Iida and Midoriya assure her that it's OK to look for a job just because it pays well, and it's a goal just as noble as any other to look for a way to sustain yourself and try to give your family a better life.

* In the commercial for the wildly popular "Great Shape Barbie", there are two little girls playing with the doll and helping her "exercise". However, the last sentence stated by one of the girls when the other one asked where she was going after her workout, was "Looking that great, it's gotta be a date!" While fitness and general good health/nutrition is a very important lesson to teach, especially to children, and the doll and commercial came out in [[ValuesDissonance 1983]], it's rather jarring for modern audiences to hear a message like that.

* ''Anime/TheLostVillage'': The end of the series has the message that everyone copes with their issues in their own way, and sometimes the way they find is to run away from them, and when that happens, it's just as valid of a way to deal with it as any other. While not uplifting, the message isn't exactly invalid.
