* Creator/AynRand and TerryGoodkind are a big fan of this ([[{{Anvilicious}} perhaps too big]]), and their main characters have numerous paragraphs of monologue that extol the potential of man, usually focusing the most on things like our genius and indomitable will.

* Averted in ''Film/{{Outland}}''. The hero, played by SeanConnery, having defeated the killers sent to eliminate him, limps up to the boss of the corrupt space-mining colony, opens his mouth to say what he thinks of him... and says "Oh fuck it" and just decks the man.

This will lead into the hero responding with the Patrick Stewart Speech, in which he may concede that humans are weak (at least for the moment), but there is much that is noble about humanity as well. He notes that they have much potential, and he admires humans' capacity for [[PowerOfLove love]] / [[PowerOfFriendship friendship]] / [[AFriendInNeed loyalty]] / [[HeroicSpirit courage]] / [[{{Determinator}} persistence]] / whatever virtue it is the writers want to {{Aesop}}. If you hear the sentences "There is much that we could learn from them," or "We were NotSoDifferent, once," you're likely in the midst of a Patrick Stewart Speech.

* In a subversion, the FinalBoss of ''{{Persona 3}}'' lists all the ways humanity is so great [[BossBanter as you fight him]]. Eventually, he sums up by saying that it none of it matters, because [[NietzscheWannabe everything's going to die anyway.]] Then he TurnsRed.
