* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has a few:
** Above all else: Strength in unity. The greatest feats of the heroes are accomplished only when they are working as a team (such as Team RWBY defeating a massive bird Grimm) whereas their lowest points are caused by being divided or alone (like when Ruby was kidnapped due to setting off on her) with the main villain's method of combating them being trying to turn people against each other.
** Don't let negative emotions control or consume you. The main antagonistic force in the series is attracted to negative emotions, each time a character let's negative emotions control them they are promptly punished (such as Yang and her anger) and the main character Ruby, set up as a paragon of sorts, is a nigh endless optimist.
** Don't let past setbacks hold you down or stop you. The bets example of this comes from the shows fourth opening which details how the main characters are recovering from the events of the [[CerberusSyndrome previous Volume.]]

This is not just an issue of fair-weatherness on the part of moderate Christians. I recall going to church every morning in the hopes of being a better person as a teenager. And, every morning, I would end up listening to the Albuquerque Christian radio station M-88, with pastor Skip Heitzig, who today has taken command of a much larger church in {{California}}, having found Albuquerque too small for his ambitions.\\

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/GettingBackOnYourHooves'' drops several.
** One is that accepting help when your in a desperate situation does NOT make you weak, and that you should open up to people who want to help you.
** Two is that while you should be suspicious of someone who has wronged you in the past, [[ReformedButRejected attacking that individual when they are trying to get their life together]] is also wrong.

** Kyle's scathing review of ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' is basically one long argument against romanticizing clinical depression and treating despair as "poignant". As Kyle eloquently points out: all of life is built upon ''change'' and ''moving forward'', and depression is a ''disease'' that makes that impossible to do; works of art shouldn't be celebrated for making depression look beautiful, because that ignores the simple fact that depression '''can''' and '''must''' be overcome. In short, [[TrueArtIsAngsty True Art is Not, in fact, "Angsty"]].

** His review of the Malian fantasy film ''Film/{{Yeelen}}'' includes an impeccably researched--but utterly unsubtle--exploration of the concept of hardline Nationalism, arguing that it's futile and self-defeating to try to succinctly define an entire nation's identity--particularly since every major nation on Earth is a complex patchwork of cultures that's nearly impossible to concisely represent without leaving out at least one marginalized group.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' has, as setting rules: that some actions can never truly taken back, and that while violence can be an attractive or even necessary tool, it can not make things better on its own. Rather important gameplay mechanics to drop in when many competing products have teams of murderhobos roaming the field.
