* Sora, the protagonist from ''{{Sketchbook}}'', is extremely shy and doesn't say much, but the viewer gets deep insights into her mind through her extensive inner monologues. And what a special and observant mind it is.

One frequently used subversion is when other characters hear what is said and respond in their own thoughts. It's mostly used when two characters use this device in the same scene. This can be milked for comedy if the character [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud switches from inner to outer monologue accidentally]]. Also known as a Stream of Consciousness. In literature, of course, including an inner monologue is essentially [[OmnipresentTrope the default state]] in a way that isn't the case in TV, movies, or other media. When a monologue is being emphasised in printed media for whatever reason, you'll often find the use of ThinkInText to make it distinctive.

** Parodied in ''[[RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead]]'', in which Hamlet (who looks a bit like Olivier, come to think of it), is clearly doing the soliloquy in his head, but the audience doesn't hear his Inner Monologue. Part of the whole point of the play/film was that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are given no [[AsYouKnow explanations]], so have no idea what's going on.
* Unlike traditional musicals, every song in ''SpringAwakening'' has been described as functioning like inner monologue for the characters. Lyrics reflect the feelings they don't or can't express to the outside world at that moment, and often at the end of the song characters will return to exactly how they were when the song began, as in the "real world" nothing happened.

Added DiffLines:

* Virtually every character of [[WebVideo/RanmaOneHalfAbridged Ranma 1/2 Abridged]] gets one of these, whether to advance the (abridged) plot or to lampshade the overuse of this trope itself in many media to advance a plot.
