* ''Anime/YuGiOh'''s fourth season presents one: always trust immature manchildren if they've tried to imprison your soul in a trading card; if you don't, they'll commit hostile corporate takeover to ''make'' you listen.

* The moral of the ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' episode "Mathmagic" seems to be "Even if you're not good at something, don't be afraid to try... otherwise you might [[GroundhogDayLoop get caught in a time loop]] or cause a RealityBreakingParadox."

* 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']].

** For the pacifist run: try to resolve issues not with violence, but by talking them out, or else you will be leaving an entire race to be trapped underground because [[spoiler:they would not all gather by the end so that the villain could use their souls (and six previous human souls) to have enough power to break the barrier keeping monsters trapped in should you talk him out of throwing reality in an endless reset loop to play with you because he confused you with his adopted sibling]].

* On ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', in one of the Halloween episodes, the resident {{Moral Guardian|s}} gets a group of children to go on a tour in her "[[TheMoralSubstitute Hallelujah House]]," showing various scenes of how she views atheists and "the Druids." One of them has a pair of actors talking about wanting to have pre-marital sex. The lady suddenly rotates the scene, now showing morgue cabinets with two pairs of legs marked HIM and HER.

* [[SpoofAesop Played for laughs]] in ''Website/CollegeHumor'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFR07vsnWjA Extreme Anti-Smoking Ad]]: Smoking will cause [[spoiler:a RobotWar]].

** Principle Snyder's introductory scene, when he scolded his (deceased!) predecessor for being too lax on the students, tells you everything you need to know about the show's logic. That kind of permissiveness, Snyder keens, is the kind of "wooly-headed liberal thinking" that "leads to being eaten" by hyenas.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}}'' has the moral, delivered by a teacher, that science is morally neutral--whether it turns out good or bad depends on how you use it. The thing is, it portrays that message very literally--the main character resurrects his dog [[ThePowerOfLove out of love]] and the dog is fine, if still [[NonHumanUndead less than fully alive]]. The {{Designated Villain}}s do the same experiment to [[AmbitionIsEvil win a science fair]], and all of ''their'' pets ComeBackWrong.
