* The main Aesop of ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' is that if you've made mistakes in the past, you shouldn't run away from them, but rather to accept those flaws to become a better person and avoid making the same mistakes all over again.

* LetsPlay/ZoeyProasheck, for her usually family-friendly content, has a fair number of anvils to drop. Mental health can affect you even from a young age, thus it is important to talk about it and not sweep it under the rug. It is okay if you are LGBTQ. Most importantly, [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre you are awesome and matter to the world]].

* The (only available online) ''[[http://www.plaidder.com/wof/ Women on Fire]]'' novels had a ''lot'' of problems with AuthorTract and general [[{{Anvilicious}} Anviliciousness]], especially in the later books, but there is one anvil in ''Taken Child'' that can't possibly be dropped hard enough: Sexual orientation is not something that can be changed, and attempts by parents to "fix" a gay child can and will tear the family apart.

* WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd goes to show that, [[NostalgiaGoggles despite our nostalgic memories]] of the old 8-bit era, ''most'' games were nothing like {{Mario}}, {{Zelda}}, MegaMan, or {{Contra}}. A lot of them flat-out sucked, even for their time.

* ''Fanfic/PartingWords'' drops a lot of anvils on the handling of the issue of bullying. The Cutie Mark Crusaders point out the ''many'' times they had been bullied by Diamon Tiara and Silver Spoon and how [[AdultsAreUseless Applejack never stepped in to help even when it was happening in front of her]]. Princess Celestia (in disguise) also points out how the "fighting back or standing up for yourself in any way makes you just as bad as the bullies" mentality is a very toxic and [[MoralDissonance downright morally confusing]] thing to pass on to genuine victims of bullying, and even wonders just where that line of thinking came from.

* ''FanFic/PonyPovSeries'' drops the message YouAreNotAlone like a sledgehammer to the balls (especially during the Nightmare Whisper and Shining Armor Arcs), yet considering the goal of the cast is to rebulid the world after the horrors that Discord has caused, (and in the aforementioned arcs, Fluttershy had gone full WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds and Shining had been hit with one HeroicBSOD after another), it's just what the doctor ordered.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' fanfic ''FanFic/OffTheLine'' Cloud intially assumes that the sexual harassment he faces is due to his very {{Stripperiffic}} attire that he is forced to wear. This assumption is shot to hell when he sees Flower[[note]] Aerith's online avatar[[/note]] , who's wearing a conservative pretty dress that covers her from neck to toe, being sexually harassed by a bunch of guys who try to coerce her into joining their party. He then realizes that clothing doesn't provoke sexual harassment, people are just assholes who will harass you if they think you are attractive.

* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12320880/1/Mall-Rats Mall Rats]], a ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' fanfic, drops the anvil of why you should never hesitate to spend time with a sibling when they ask you too. Lincoln dreads going on a trip to the mall with [[BrainlessBeauty Leni]], but not only does he have fun, [[HiddenDepths but he learns a lot about her too then she initially thought]].

Added DiffLines:

* The ordinarily silly, D&D-based ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' took [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0669.html a strip]] following [[spoiler:Roy's resurrection]] where Roy and Celia discuss the latter's inability to be resurrected if she dies (due to her nature as an elemental being) and her subsequent extreme caution regarding combat and action. They eventually reach the conclusion that if people didn't have definite knowledge of resurrection or an afterlife, there would be significantly less war in the world.

* After the controversial "M-Word" speech scene in ''ComicBook/UncannyAvengers '' #5 that was full of UnfortunateImplications about minority politics, Creator/BrianBendis, himself a Jewish writer, responded in ''ComicBook/AllNewXMen'' #13 by having Kitty Pryde, a Jewish superhero, give a page-long speech that highlighted everything that was wrong with said scene.

to:

* Comicbook/KittyPryde seems to have a gift for this:
** In one famous issue, after a mutant friend commits suicide over harassment, Kitty gives an impassioned speech about the nature of words and how they hurt, even rattling off a list of derogatory slurs to make her point.
** In another example, after being asked by an African-American man if she's a mutie, Kitty fires back asking if he's a nigger. When the man (obviously) takes offense, Kitty makes the point that the slur "mutie" is just as offensive to her.
