* 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.

* ''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.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' tends to do this during the PreviouslyOn segments that are part of several episodes. 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.

* 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.
