* Subverted in ''StrangerThanFiction'' The narration means something, even the scenes that appear to be random filler fold into Emma Thompson's story, and when the narrator talks about objects and events being meant to save our lives, she is talking literally...and literarily.

* Every episode of ''Series/TheInvisibleMan'' starts with Darien narrating a quote by a famous figure. It usually has something to do with the episode's plot. It's established in the pilot that, despite Darien never going to college and spending a chunk of his life behind bars, he is actually pretty well-read (he immediately spots Arnaud's bullshit when the latter appropriates one of MarkTwain's quotes for himself). {{Lampshaded}} late in the series, when he's attacked in his apartment after delivering the requisite quote, and a book falls of his shelf. The book is basically a compilation of quotes from famous people.

* ''Anime/EurekaSeven'''s next episode previews. This one is pretty ingenious, actually it actually ''is'' relevant, usually, but the ambiguous language ("the boy" and "the girl" instead of "Renton" and "Eureka", for example) makes it sound like it could be talking about anything, because that's not [[SarcasmMode pretentious or anything.]]
** Renton making his in-episode monologues addressed to his sister often treat into this as well.
* Same for ''Anime/{{Gasaraki}}''.
* Also the same for ''Manga/ElfenLied''.

* Every NextEpisodePreview in ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'' consists of the pretentious musings of [[spoiler: Father]], and ends with a fauxlosophic one-liner for the ages (many of which border on SoBadItsGood in their blatant pseudo-profundity).
** What makes this especially fun is that these musings are entirely in-character for [[spoiler:Father]].

* During the ending credits of each episode of ''Series/{{Riget}}'', show creator LarsVonTrier gives a ScriptWank speech with bizarre rants about the evil and the good. He delivers it with a smirk grin, as if he's parodying this very trope.

* The first ''LeftBehind'' movie opens with a Fauxlosophic Narration: short but tedious, [[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/slacktivist/2008/11/14/lbtm-thats-our-buck/ described as]] "a vaguely foreboding series of non sequiturs".

* Any film narrated by Creator/WernerHerzog (e.g., ''Encounters at the End of the World'', ''Cave of Forgotten Dreams''). All of Herzog's musings are ([[AdamWesting presumably]]) meant in earnest but some of his more out-there ideas, delivered in his unmistakable voice, have been known to provoke laughter.

* A show called ''Deadly Sins'', which tells about real crimes and the events leading up to them, has a bald narrator guy in a church dramatically saying inanities about how the events shown relate to the SevenDeadlySins.
