** If you pay too much for cable, you'll get depressed, stay at home a lot, and lose your job. The new guy will mess up at doing your job (Zoo worker), accidentally let a gorilla escape, and said gorilla will body slam you while you pick up the paper the next morning.

* ''ComicBook/{{Grimm}}'' dipped into this trope frequently, due to its method of having the main character try to teach someone an "important lesson" via reading a fairy tale. One of the biggest examples being the Rumpelstiltskin, when an unwed teenage mother-to-be is taught to not get an abortion (a fairly controversial Aesop to begin with) via a story about a woman who gets threatened with death unless she can spin straw into gold and is forced to promise her firstborn to the title dwarf unless she can guess his name. Only it's a trick, and by saying his name in an attempt to save her baby, she instead releases Rumpelstiltskin from his curse (which is then passed on to her baby). And the lesson to all this is apparently that if you're ever in a position where you're forced to choose between giving up your firstborn baby to a stranger or die, you're actually screwed either way.

* The Genocide route of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is still incredibly horrific and effectively deconstructs the concept of grinding in [=RPGs=] and [[spoiler: killing characters you otherwise love in subsequent playthroughs just to see what happens]], but the very last scene takes it UpToEleven and turns the message of the playthrough into 'don't go murdering innocent people otherwise [[spoiler: [[DemonicPossession you'll get possessed by]] [[EnfantTerrible a creature of pure evil]] [[OmnicidalManiac and be forced to destroy the entire world]] [[ButThouMust whether you want to or not]]]]'. Made worse by the fact [[spoiler: said creature possesses your character in every subsequent playthrough and preventing you from ever achieving the GoldenEnding ever again, throwing a layer of FantasticAesop on top of that by implying 'you can't always use time travel to escape the consequences of your actions']].

* ''Adventures of the Rope Warrior'' tells us you should exercise regularly and eat right. That way aliens can't harvest your body for the impurities a sedentary life inflicts to fuel their intergalactic drug trade, and the Space U.N. won't decide the only viable way to stop the drug dealers is to blow up your entire planet.
