* Subverted in ''Film/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.

--> '''Deckard''': I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life, anybody's life, my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die.

A product of the desire to ContemplateOurNavels, and maybe of attempts to do a PrivateEyeMonologue. [[IThoughtItMeant Is not used so that]] EvilSoundsDeep. When the author uses this to convey a message, it can overlap with AuthorTract. When a ''character'', not the author, does this, it becomes HoldingTheFloor. If particularly nonsensical, this can become WordSaladPhilosophy.

* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' tends to have some of this from Koizumi. Though knowing this series, the things he say might be laced with significance down the line.

** This often pops up in the promos of self-proclaimed geniuses and/or lunatics. Then there's fellows like the UltimateWarrior, where even the other people behind the scene can't tell whether it's an [[MethodActing unbelievably in-depth put-on]] or [[CloudCuckooLander they really believe the insanity coming out of their mouths]].

* ''Series/{{Oz}}'' often included odd narration segments from Augustus Hill (Who is also a main character) regarding the theme of the episode. Sometimes They were beautiful and insightful. Other times They were just bizarre. He also delivered exposition on prisoners and Their crimes, making his exact nature (Augustus as a character couldn't possibly know some of the facts) somewhat ambiguous.

** This was spoofed on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' when Mulder starts one of these in the day and by the time he finishes it has become night and everyone else including Scully has left the area.
--->'''Mulder:''' "Voodoo priests of Haiti! Tibetan numerologists of Appalachia! The unsolved mysteries of... ''UnsolvedMysteries''!"

* The narrator for the TV advertisements for KingdomHospital, while not entirely inaccurate, made the show seem like an overly dramatic, extremely intense, straight horror series. Anyone who actually watched an episode of the show knows it doesn't take itself nearly as serious as the narrator made it out to be, who exaggerates even the silly comedic or mundane moments in the series to make them sound ominous or exciting. One example would be "The head doctor is inducted into a secret society!" The actual "secret society" is a standard fraternity deal with ridiculous hats and silly secret hand gestures, and its hazing ritual is mostly played for laughs. Narrator: "The dead cause the Earth to tremble!" The reality: Minor earth tremors occur at Kingdom hospital occasionally, and while they technically caused by the dead it really isn't as big a deal as the narrator made it sound.

* Each Episode of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' opens with a philosophical quote or pseudo-quote that tries to tie it in to the episode.
