* Related to the above, ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' has this at the end of the fourth arc. It's downplayed because [[spoiler:Battler's explanations for the mysteries are completely wrong, and though he defeats Beatrice he isn't even close to the truth.]]

* ''Literature/{{Radiance}}'' has a particularly strange one. Anchises summons together all the suspects needed to determine what happened to Severin on Adonis. This group includes [[spoiler:people dead, people alive but normally in no condition to function properly, Severin herself, an in-universe fictional detective, and several cartoon characters. Everyone takes this all in stride.]]

** In "Mr. Monk and the Rapper," Monk has just accused a major rap producer, but his crew isn't willing to shut up and let Monk give the summation, so SpecialGuest Music/SnoopDogg gets up on stage and raps about what happened instead.

* The titular character of ''DetectiveConan'' can't NOT do this. He does it so compulsively that the detective he regularly pretends to be has become famous for passing out and then giving a "deduction show" while unconscious. In fact, Conan does this SO compulsively that at the end of the 11th movie, [[spoiler:the delay NEARLY KILLS the cast, as he's giving the summation [[EverythingTryingToKillYou in an underwater cavern filling up with water and poisonous gas during an EARTHQUAKE.]]]]
* Happens all the time in ''{{Spiral}}''.
* When [[GuileHero Agero]] from ''TowerOfGod'' explains why and how he made his team lose the Hide-And-Seek test against Quant to [[FriendOnTheForce Lero-ro]].

* Played with in ''HotFuzz''. Once where [[spoiler:Sgt.

The second time is a Summation by the Neighborhood Watch Alliance, but [[InvertedTrope it's the]] ''[[InvertedTrope culprits]]'' [[InvertedTrope giving it to the hero]], who's just shocked and amazed by the meager justification they had for killing people.]]

* Common in ''PushingDaisies'', but done by the {{narrator}} instead of an actual character.
* ''{{Psych}}'' typically has two: first Shawn's BS-laden explanation to the police of what's happened and how to prove it, and then his explanation to Gus and/or Henry of how he figured it out.
* Parodied in ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' when the gang is trying to figure out who keeps pooping in Charlie and Frank's bed. At the end of the episode, Artemis gives a long summation showing that each member of the gang is guilty. Frank then denies the story and admits that he did it all, because "poop is funny." He even pooped on the floor while Artemis was making her summation.

* Bart (and sometimes Lisa) from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', gets to do this, displaying uncanny reasoning skills you wouldn't associate with him, whenever Sideshow Bob shows up, notably in his first two appearances when he frames Krusty for robbery and tries to kill Selma. Even though his third appearance in the episode ''Cape Feare'' isn't so much of a mystery plot, but has more of a straight forward "I'm coming to get my revenge!" premise, Bart still tells a gathering at the end of the episode how he managed to distract Sideshow Bob.
