** In ''Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation'', Lara's guide Verner Von Croy tells Lara the controls for the game throughout the first level, while she simply listens without noticing anything odd.
* In ''TheSimpsons Hit And Run'', the tutorial missions are narrated by an extremely bored Bart. (as well as commentary on unlocked achievements and any new item type).
** In ''VideoGame/TheSimpsonsGame'' for next-gen systems, the tutorials are entirely justified, as the various characters find out they're in a video game that they found the manual for, so when they learn about a new ability, they just read the manual to find out what to do. And the manual they're reading is the same manual included with the game, so you can read along.
*** It's then subverted later in the game when [[spoiler:Bart starts pointing out various videogame tropes, like the fact that an alien UFO shoots four lasers and then exposes its weakpoint that they can hit. The aliens are listening in, question why the hell they do that, correct the mistake, and then go off and destroy some stuff.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Mega Man X}}5'' has a tutorial explaining the basic controls of the game. It might have been justified since the inclusion of ducking, for the first time ever in a platformer-style ''Mega Man'' game, though gamers would have been able to read the damn manual or press down instictively.
** However, since it was optional, gamers who jumped straight into the main game were greeted with Alia, a [[MissionControl navigator]] that [[NinjaButterfly wouldn't stop interrupting you]] [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper at the worst times]] about the most inane things. Yes, I see the spikes up ahead. No, I did not plan on trying to walk on them. Her commentary could not be skipped, unfortunately. Thankfully, in X6, though she returns, listening is optional.
** Ironically, she actually had some plot-relevant things to say (especially pre-boss fight) in X6.

* While the Narrator in the ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' games tells the player how to move and jump, the in-game characters usually explain everything else.

** What makes it funnier is that the controls have been changed in the XBLA version, yet Jamjars recites the same instructions with the new controls inserted. [[TheyJustDidntCare Obviously, it no longer rhymes]].

* The tutorial in ''{{Achaea}}'' does its best to have a fourth wall - being a text game, the only hints about controls are that anything the player actually needs to type in to progress will appear in CAPITALS when the guide says it.
