* Early on in ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'', the Toa had to face {{Evil Knockoff}}s of them called the Shadow Toa, born from the darkness within themselves. While the Toa were able to fight them to a standstill, they could only be truly defeated by the Toa accepting their inner darkness.

* Common on ''WesternAnimation/TeamoSupremo'', where the villain's M.O. would often coincide with some issue one of the heroes was struggling with, such as a battle with Sloppy Joe coinciding with Brenda having problems with disorganisation.

* The {{Arc Villain}}s in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' combine this with VillainHasAPoint, in that they embodied a societal change that needed to happen; it's just that their [[WellIntentionedExtremist imbalanced methodologies brought them into villain territory]]. Amon sought to free the {{Muggles}} from oppression, but wanted to do so by [[AntiMagicalFaction exterminating the Bending Arts altogether]]. Unalaq wanted to restore mankind's connection with the spirits, but sought this by instigating civil war and becoming the DarkMessiah. Zaheer and the Red Lotus wanted to put an end to oppressive dictatorships, but tried to accomplish this through {{Bomb Throwing|Anarchists}} {{Anarchy}}. Kuvira sought to being order and strength to a chaos-torn world, but did so by subjugating the Earth Kingdom under her iron-fisted rule.
* Each member of the RoguesGallery on ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'' was designed to embody [[GreenAesop a certain threat to the planet's ecosystem]].

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers''. [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Rita Repulsa]], in particular, did it all the time. In fact, most villainous plots from the first two seasons were inspired by what the Ranger teens were doing at school when the villains looked in.
** Zedd was, in a way, worst, as he'd make monsters from (sometimes Aesop-related) objects, allowing them to be even better tailored to the plot!

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': The episode "You Can't Handle the Truth" featured the Roman goddess Veritas who was killing people by making people around them tell the truth about anything, just when Sam and Dean are dealing with trust issues of their own because Sam is barely acting like a normal human (because he [[TheSoulless lacked his soul]], it turns out).

* The [[MonsterOfTheWeek akuma]] from ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' verge on this sometimes. For example, Ladybug and Chat Noir's showdown with the Horrificator involves a lesson in facing your fears.

* {{Invoked|Trope}} and {{Deconstructed|Trope}} in ''Fanfic/{{Marionettes}}'' where [[spoiler:the title Marionettes were created by the [[TheMenInBlack Stallions in Black]] to enforce what they view as the 'correct' path of fate and teach the Mane Six and CMC (who they view as {{The Chosen One}}s) lessons or humble them as part of their mission to 'safeguard Equestria's heroes'. In fact the original one, [=G1T01=] (Trixie's original form) was created to humble Sunset Shimmer. The deconstruction comes in due to the fact the Marionettes are ''fully sapient'' and thus it's incredibly heartless to use them as object lessons and deny them any other form of freedom. Particularly due to the fact the Stallions actively reprogram them to prevent them from changing for the better.]]

* In various versions of ''PrettyCure'', the monster is formed from handy, usually inanimate objects, so if any one thing has been the focal point of the episode, there's a good chance the girls will end up fighting it at some point. Of course, the MonsterOfTheWeek is just as frequently something random, like a piano or a planter or a [[RocksFallEveryoneDies gazebo]].

* Each episode of ''YogisGang'' featured a villain who encouraged or reveled in bad behavior such as {{greed}}, bigotry, vandalism, or littering.
* A common theme on ''SushiPack'' is that the villain of the day will need (and usually fail) to learn the same lesson that one or more members of the Pack is struggling with.

* An episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold Batman: The Brave and the Bold]]'' featured an egocentric Captain Atom who constantly said that Batman wasn't a real hero because he didn't have powers. Then, the VillainOfTheWeek showed up and took his powers, making him useless. Of course, this being the show that [[NoFourthWall it]] [[LighterAndSofter was,]] [[JerkAss Cap]] [[ComicallyMissingThePoint didn't]] [[BrokenAesop get it]] [[SubvertedTrope at all.]]

* Common on ''TeamoSupremo'' where the villain's M.O. would often coincide with some issue one of the heroes was struggling with, such as a battle with Sloppy Joe coinciding with Brenda having problems with disorganisation.
* In the 2007 ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' movie, the Turtles face a villain-led "brotherhood" while they themselves are having unity issues. Just prior to the final battle, the Turtles' family comes together as that of their enemy falls apart.

* Ursa from ''AfterEarth''. A monster that hunts ''solely'' by detecting emanations of fear, and is deaf and blind otherwise, makes absolutely no sense, especially since it was supposedly designed that way specifically to prey on human (advanced, star-faring humans, mind you, not cavemen), except as a visual representation of the protagonist's need to face and conquer his fear.
