** It could well be that between her OmnicidalManiac MadDoctor personality and EvilCannotComprehendGood, she didn't think of that (or didn't want anyone else to) and no-one else thought past her reputation in the limited time available. Since the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Vorlons]] could extend human lives enormously and the Shadows could bring people back from near-death, it is quite possible that Kosh knew all that and was making sure no-one else had even a sample of the immortality serum for reasons that would make sense by the end of Season 4.

* All three ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' films have the same moral: ''"If you a are a [[LivingToys living toy]], be loyal to the kid who is your owner"'', it may be an analogy of being loyal to your friends, but the relationship between a child and a toy is different from real friends, no matter if toys are alive or not, or, the moral may be that this friendship is not different, treat your toys are friends even if in real life they aren't alive.

** Apparently decades ago (in the current series timeline) a brilliant billionaire industrialist/scientist designed robots with perfectly emulated [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Human movement, thought process, and emotions]] yet still expected them to act and behave like mindless drones (makes sense....[[FlatWhat RIGHT?]]).

** The entire plot, resolution, and learned lesson of ''A Flurry Of Emotions'' relies entirely on Flurry Heart being an unstoppable infant PhysicalGod who even with a PowerLimiter is absurdly powerful, capable of flight, and seemingly much more intelligent than an infant should be. Any normal infant (even most from InUniverse) would only be able to sit grumpily in their baby carrier while Twilight completed her "boring" duties, and she would go on to spend some quality time with the kid with absolutely no conflict whatsoever.

* Barbara Gordon (started as Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}, became Oracle, now back to being Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}) in [[Franchise/TheDCU the DC Comics Universe]] lost the use of her legs -- in a universe where incredible technology exists that should be able to restore them. Showing that handicapped people can be useful contributors to society doesn't work so well when the {{Phlebotinum}} in the world means that she's only handicapped by choice. DC has [[AuthorsSavingThrow tried]] to [[JustifiedTrope justify this]] by saying that she won't use technology that's available to superheroes [[ReedRichardsIsUseless but not to civilians]], which would make sense only if being handicapped places no burden whatsoever on other people; otherwise, choosing not to cure herself is unfair to those people. However, this is also part of a more general trend of Bat Family characters using (by [[Franchise/TheDCU DCU standards]]) very low-tech equipment. If they used all the technology they ''should'' have access to, they'd be hurling lasers around instead of boomerangs, and they'd wear robotic power suits that rival Franchise/{{Superman}} in power instead of just some spandex with the occasional kevlar vest underneath.
** The issue is spoofed in [[http://realtegan.blogspot.com/2010/08/erica-henderson-on-dc-quick-fixes.html this comic]] by Erica Henderson.
** [[ComicBook/{{New52}} With the relaunch of all of DC's titles]], she's no longer in a wheelchair, [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl2011}} and has returned to being Batgirl]]. [[BrokenBase Reception has been mixed]].

* In Literature/LatawnyaTheNaughtyHorseLearnsToSayNoToDrugs, the author tries to present a DrugsAreBad message. One scene in this book features a horse dying from a marijuana overdose, to warn kids that this could happen to them. But while marijuana is toxic to ''horses'', it's much less toxic to ''humans''.

* In ''[[Literature/StarShardsChronicles Shattered Sky]]'', the protagonists struggle with the moral implications of their ability to combine their powers to raise the dead. When EccentricMillionaire Elon Tessic suggests they use this power to bring back the six million victims of the holocaust, they run into a variation of HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct, deciding that undoing historical atrocities is wrong because people need to remember them to keep history from repeating itself. So, don't use your magical powers to bring back the dead.

* The second ''{{Film/Hellboy}}'' film has a similar message as the ''X Men'' movies, with the same problem. The {{Muggles}} are portrayed as nasty little shits for being afraid of Hellboy. Even ignoring that Hellboy (both the person and movie) [[UniquenessValue doesn't show much concern for regular humans' lives]], there's the problem that he doesn't just look like a devil sent from Hell to bring destruction to the world of man, he actually ''is'' just that. In the previous movie he was seconds away from dooming the world. And this movie reveals that he had the human who stopped him doing that literally ReassignedToAntarctica, and an Angel states that the powers that be still fully expect that he'll destroy earth at some point. The humans he encounters may be judging a book by it's cover, but the contents of this particular book happen to be just as scary it seemed.

** The Genocide route is extremely unrelenting in hammering the point home you're likely only taking that route to see what happens, rather than any actual desire to hurt or punish the characters, and the few characters who are aware that [[spoiler: you're able to effectively time travel using the ability to SAVE]] argue the fact you can undo everything doesn't make you any better of a person. However, the only reason their point sticks is because the Genocide route ends with an all but literal DiabolusExMachina in the form of [[spoiler: the Fallen Child, who destroys the world whether you want to or not and then only allows you to recreate it if you [[DealWithTheDevil sell your SOUL to them]]]]. Doing so prevents you from ever achieving the GoldenEnding, as [[spoiler: the child takes you over in the final scene of the Pacifist route and is implied to kill everyone again anyway]]. So in some ways, it's an Arbitrary Rules Aesop about [[spoiler: DemonicPossession and [[DealWithTheDevil deals with the devil]]]], but since it's primary purpose is to drive the point the other characters are making, it makes you wonder how effective their point would have been without [[spoiler: the Child's cross-timeline possession of you]].
