* A running theme in the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy (ShaunOfTheDead, HotFuzz, TheWorldsEnd). In all three films, Creator/SimonPegg's character fails to do anything about the obvious lesson he should learn from events - Shaun keeps on half-arsing his life, Nicholas Angel doesn't learn how to switch off from being a absurdly dedicated Police Officer, and Gary King doesn't grow up (although he does quit drinking, [[spoiler: so the man who messes up his friends lives and ''causes an apocalypse'' by his drunken immaturity is now... just immature]]).

This is often a good way to [[JustifiedTrope justify]] AesopAmnesia- after all, the equivalent of an Aesop-based kung-fu scene should leave everyone, including the viewer, sufficiently confused as to the purpose of the story that it's hard to hold it against the characters for failing to realize how they could apply this knowledge to other situations. This will most commonly end with characters concluding that they haven't learned anything, or they'll spend the ending of the show desperately trying to come up with an Aesop that works as a result.

* Quite a few VisualKei artists, have, through the loss of their own lives, shown the problems inherent in abusing methamphetamine. [[Music/HidetoMatsumoto hide]], [[Music/TokyoYankees Soichiro Umemura]], Daisuke from The Studs and Kagerou, and Music/TaijiSawada have all, sadly, served as very good examples for "meth will fuck you up" as AnAesop... unfortunately, it's not like many other VisualKei artists pay attention, meaning more will likely join that list soon enough.
