* ''TheBoondocks'', A Pimp Named Slickback actually gives Riley TheTalk (though obviously filtered by his biased and frankly misogynist mouth) and helps him figure out that his pal Gangstalicious is probably gay. All this despite the bad blood between him and the Freemans...

* Kimblee from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' gives Roy and crew a nice little lecture during the Ishvalan war on accepting the fact that as a soldier, you are killing people, and there's no way around it, so [[TheDeadHaveNames you'd better remember their faces;]] [[DueToTheDead they'll never forget yours.]] Good advice...coming from the AxCrazy MadBomber.
** [[JerkassHasAPoint He does have a point.]] Kimblee is ''made'' of this, really. He brings up a lot of good points on philosophy and morality, and the nature of duty, respect, and personal integrity. Doesn't change the fact that he's a psychopath that LovesTheSoundOfScreaming.

* In ''Anime/KillLaKill'' this is delivered by surprisingly, the resident goofball and CloudCookooLander, Mako Mankanshoku. Sure, her impassioned speeches about stuff sometimes make little sense, however, she can deliver enlightening messages. One such example is her telling the protagonist Ryuko to "get naked" because she has a more impressive rack than Satsuki, the villain. While unconventional, Ryuko realized that Mako was telling her to be more confident in herself, and this confidence allowed her to unlock the full power of her Kamui.

* From the ''Gensokyo20XX'' series, you would not normally be expecting something wise from age-regressed, pessimistic, fatalistic and mentally unstable Reimu, doubly so when she pointed out how difficult their lives, especially hers, have been and how they don't complain, while Baka does nothing but complain and, to her surmising, Wangst, saying, "All you do is complain of your life, yet you never do anything to make it better."

* In ''TeamAmerica: World Police'', the main character has an epiphany at the words of a drunken vagrant (who says the world is full of "[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold dicks]]" "pussies" and "assholes"), and repeats what he said word-for-word at the end of the film to save Team America's reputation; Team America, the "dicks", might not always be right (and the "pussies" often need to [[WhatTheHellHero point it out when they are]]), but they're the only ones who can protect the world from "assholes" like Kim-Jong Il, as well as "pussies" like the Film Actor's Guild who descend to that level.

* In ''Film/{{Clerks}}'', Dante's standing on the brink of pissing away a good, firm relationship to chase after a girl who dumped him years ago he's been pining for.

See also DumbassHasAPoint and JerkassHasAPoint. If the source of wisdom isn't just poor, but also oppressed, uneducated, and/or mentally challenged, it may be a WhoopiEpiphanySpeech.
