A character, sometimes part of the story proper and sometimes completely external to it, who acts either as the storyteller or as a framing device. A Narrator by definition breaks the FourthWall by addressing the audience to tell them the story. Sometimes, the Narrator is also responsible for presenting AnAesop to the audience at the end of the story (as in ''TheTwilightZone'' and its [[FollowTheLeader imitators]]).

* ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' begins every show with a Narrator telling the audience a rrytale. Sometimes it's from the (fictional) fairytale that one of the characters is from, sometimes it concerns a character's backstory, and sometimes it's a story that's somehow related to the episode. Drosselmeyer also serves as an odd narrator in some scenes, appearing on-screen to question details about the characters and the scene, and to occasionally tell the characters (who can rarely hear him) what they ''should'' do. [[spoiler:Considering he's actually writing the story, it makes sense for him to be the narrator.]]
