** Jorah Mormont; at least in the first season, he mainly exists to inform Daenerys/us about the customs of the Dothraki and other such things. He also takes on this role in season 3, alongside Missandei. Fully aware of this, the producers even refer to him jokingly as "Jorah the Explorer."

** Colonel Mitchell even got in on this, excitedly describing the relevant bits of previous missions when similar situations arise. The in-universe explanation is that he read all of SG-1's mission reports while he was injured after saving their asses in the season 7 finale. This is most definitely for the audience's benefit since the people he's usually talking to--Teal'c, Sam, and Daniel--were all actually there for those missions.

* Brock from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' (and later Cilan) became this more as the series has gone by. It is very rare for an episode of Diamond & Pearl or Black & White to go by in which no unnecessary commentary is made on the events.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' does this to various degrees:
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Arena]]'' played it straight with the spirit of Ria Silmane, who appears in your dreams.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' averts it by distributing the exposition over a large number of [=NPCs=].
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' subverts it in the main quest, as the game gives you several Mr. Exposition type characters (Caius, Azura, Vivec, Dagoth Ur, the Temple giving a different account than Vivec...plus you can do your own research with some in-game texts) all of whom [[TheRashomon contradict each other]]. There are strong hints that Azura, Vivec, and Dagoth Ur have their own motives for lying (or at least not being entirely truthful) and [[TheUnreveal you're never told outright]] which one was right. A lot is left to personal interpretation.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', much like ''Daggerfall'', distributes exposition over a number of characters, including the guardsman at the Western Watchtower (who tells you about the legend of the Dragonborn after you kill your first dragon), Farengar (who tells you about the Dragon War), Jarl Balgruuf (who tells you about the Greybeards of High Hrothgar), and the Greybeards themselves (who tell you about the Voice).

-->Exposition has not merely vanquished mimesis, it has burned its homes to the ground and sown salt in its fields. It's really bad when Katara is describing what is happening on screen.
