*The four encounter several Mr. Expositions in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', much to their annoyance:
**Most of the Guardians have this tendency, especially Spectrem.
**When the four finally talk to the Pyar gods, Meddar Pyar spouts a huge amount of [[UnreliableExpositor essentially worthless repetitive exposition]]:
-->For beings with a limited amount of time to impart information, they sure were wasting a lot of it spouting rubbish.

* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'': The show used written text, explaining the political situation or the situation at sea. Additionally in "The Even Chance", Midshipman Archie Kennedy explains Horatio and the audience his view on UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution and present situation in France ("Louis was captured just before Christmas. What do you think they'll do with him? [[DramaticIrony You can't kill a King]]." -- Oh, Archie!). He also informs us later that the French has killed their king.

* Dietrich in ''Series/BarneyMiller'' was TheSmartGuy and a RenaissanceMan, so when the squad encountered things like an amygdalectomy patient, a heart attack, or an ''atomic bomb'', he was usually the one to provide relevant detail. It became a RunningGag; as soon as a visitor said an unfamiliar word, Barney would turn to Dietrich with resignation. (Also played with, such as the episode {{Tontine}} where ''Wojo'' pipes up with the definition--because Dietrich told him on the way over.)

* In C.S. Lewis's ''Literature/TheGreatDivorce'', one of the ghosts that the narrator meets on the bus tells him how Hell works and why it's so empty (Everyone arrives at the same place, but since nobody can get along with anyone else, they quickly move away, and spread through the town), as lead-up to his point about why he's going up (most things in Hell can be gotten simply by imagining them, so he wants to go to Heaven to get ahold of something that can be called a commodity and use economics to force people to stay together).

*** Auron and Lulu from the same game are guilty of this at certain points, but Auron's a {{Badass}} so of course you'll listen to whatever he says, right? Right?

See also CaptainObvious, {{Expositron 9000}}, HauntedHouseHistorian. The CombatCommentator is a variation that provides color commentary for ongoing fights. Not to be confused with MsFanservice, though the comparison could make for [[Sexposition some interesting puns]].

* In ''Series/AcutionKings'', the experts will usually give a detailed history of the piece they're looking at. If there's no history to be found, they'll explain why that is.

* Lois Habiba in ''Series/{{Torchwood}}: Children of Earth''. The series attracted many viewers who were unfamiliar with the previous two series, and Lois served to explain the origins of the Torchwood Institute to these new viewers.
* Winston in ''HumanTarget''. Mostly justified, since there's a new mission every week, and someone's got to fill Chance in on the details. There is a certain amount of "Remember, once you get inside..." purely for the audience's benefit though. He's also usually working MissionControl, so it's not his only job.
