** Which is perhaps why for the X-Men movies, Patrick Stewart was a perfect fit. (The other reason why being that, despite the character having been created when Stewart was only 23 years old, JackKirby drew Xavier at the time looking ''almost exactly'' like the Patrick Stewart of today.)

* [[XMenFilmSeries/ProfessorCharlesFrancisXavier Professor Charles Xavier]] in the ''Film/XMenFilmSeries''. Given [[Creator/PatrickStewart who plays him]], not surprising. Given who he ''is'', also not surprising. Xavier's core message basically requires having such a speech at hand and ready to give at a moment's notice (as true here as it was in the source material). The capacity to give such a speech is basically the only thing that he and Magneto are feuding over.

So named because Creator/PatrickStewart has delivered such speeches many times, both as [[TheCaptain Captain Jean-Luc Picard]] from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' and as Professor Xavier from the ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' {{film}}s. (He was trained as a Shakespearean actor, after all.) Do note, however, that while the Patrick Stewart Speech is always superb, with a perfectly balanced combination of precise logic and emotional appeal, a five-minute Patrick Stewart Speech barely holds a candle to a twenty-second WhoopiEpiphanySpeech, just in terms of pure wise clarity.

** An even more epic example in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', where he gives one to his ''younger'' self, convincing him to "hope again," and that despite what happens (or in the younger Xavier's case, ''will'' happen) to mutants, humanity can still be shown "a better path."

When done well, can give the viewer a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming sense of pride]]. When done poorly, comes off as [[{{Anvilicious}} overly preachy]], or even [[{{Narm}} ridiculous]].
