* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' is about 90% Kyon talking to himself. Koizumi's segments also tend to be this.
* ''Anime/ErgoProxy'', to the point of overuse.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' tends to do this during the PreviouslyOn segments that are part of several episodes. The musings are usually meant to comment on the different twists and turns of Lelouch's current situation or his eventual fate, but some end up sounding a bit repetitive or go off into philosophical tangents.

The musings are usually meant They feature narration from C.C., trying to comment on the different twists and turns of sound deep, describing Lelouch's current situation in abstract terms ("The actions one takes are answered by consequences...") and finishing with something like, "At least, that was the hope Lelouch carried in his heart back then," or "But their fate has already been determined, with inevitable outcome." That last one is particularly noteworthy, since it actually ''contradicts'' a theme of the series - the constant ForWantOfANail moments, the way Lelouch's entire argument against his eventual fate, but some end up sounding a bit repetitive or go off into philosophical tangents.enemies [[spoiler: his father and Schneizel]] is that humanity should have free will and shouldn't be controlled by either of their plans. So thanks for that, C.C.

Added DiffLines:

* In the fictional ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'', characters go on about existential matters, such as Inigo going into a 6 page "who am I" speech. Fortunately, William Goldman excises such ramblings in his abridged version of S. Morgenstern's tale.

* The special 100th episode of ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' features a scene with an InnerMonologue from Gummy the alligator as he watches [[ItMakesSenseInContext many of the show's background characters flying through the air in slow-motion]].
-->'''Gummy:''' What is life? Is it nothing more than the endless search for a cutie mark? And what is a cutie mark, but a constant reminder that we're all only one [[MixAndMatchCritters bugbear]] attack away from oblivion? And what of the poor gator, flank forever blank, destined to an existential swim down the river of life to... an unknowable destiny? ''[[[{{Bathos}} licks his own eyeball]]]''

** Ruthlessly mocked in one episode of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' as part of that show's series of TakeThat insults aimed at other medical series.

* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' has a few of these, with one of the main characters, Mohinder, starting and ending each episode with a philosophical note that extrapolate on the events of that episode (and some that merely capitalize on the mood)
** Occasionally other characters, such as Linderman or Sylar, got in on the act, usually exhibiting their own dark tones to deviate from Mohinder's, usually, more positive narration.
** In the official parody "[[http://heroeswiki.com/Zeroes Zeroes]]", the Mohinder stand-in is forced to stop his closing narration as a "sentence finisher" starts reading along with him.

** Especially {{Egregious}} because the character in question had already said why he saved Deckard's life, ''and Deckard's narration directly contradicted it.''

* Invoked in ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'' when Roabea muses that one path on a crossroad must be heaven and the other hell. Witz immediately complains that he hates people who say stuff like that. (Ultimately, however, the comparison proves apt--the paths lead to their hometowns, and when they meet up again both claim to have found hell.)
