** No matter how horrible things seem, it can never be too much to ask for help from your friends and allies. Itachi, a villain who was posthumously revealed as a HeroWithAnFInGood, more-or-less says to the titular character, saying not following will make him no different from the BigBad. He is also likely talking from experience, seeing that [[spoiler:after his zombification]], he learned that every contingency plan that he made failed miserably.

* ''Manga/{{Cyborg009}}'': War is, at ''best'', a NecessaryEvil. The villains may sound about as subtle as CaptainPlanet antagonists in their goals to prolong war for money, but the focus on the effects war has on the individual civilian shows just how devastating and pointless it is. The manga also argues that bigotry over one's nationality or ethnicity is pointless, as the heroic characters all judge each other as humans:

** The manga's ending basically says that no matter how bad life gets, it can get better. [[spoiler: And no matter how fucked up and beyond hope life may seem, you ''can'' fix things]].

* Likewise, the ending of ''Anime/ZetaGundam'' could be seen as arguing that even though war is terrible, there are some people who are so twisted and evil that violence is the only way to stop them from committing even worse atrocities.

* Creator/OsamuTezuka's ''Manga/{{MW}}'' has an entire chapter late in the series' run about how homosexuality is neither wrong nor shameful. Notably, this {{Aesop}] is delivered by a sympathetic lesbian character, in contrast to the two gay/bisexual leads, both of whom are ''profoundly'' screwed up individuals.

** Also, make sure you know what kind of situations you're getting yourself into. Doing something just because it sounds cool and exciting could be a mistake that either kills you or damages you for life.

** Never rely on numbers to determine or judge the content of a person's character. The reliance on scouters, a device which measures the ki on any sentient being and then outputs it as a 'combat rating', was more of hindrance to person using the scouter than an actual advantage. Guys like Raditz, Nappa, Zarbon, The Ginyu Force, Cui, Dodoria, hell, pretty much ''everybody'' who worked under Freeza, put way too much stock in the readings that scouters would provide them. Because of this they would often underestimate their opponent's abilities, and their arrogance would naturally come back to bite them in the ass. [[GenreSavvy Vegeta was the only one smart enough to realize that scouters are pretty much useless and impractical in battle]] and he even [[LampshadeHanging mocked Jeice and Cui for putting too much reliance in them,]] [[CurbStompBattle before he executed them with great ease.]] Probably the most poignant example was when Trunks took on Freeza's soldiers on Earth, his power level was just five when one of Freeza's soldiers took a reading from the scouter and because of this, immediately dismissed Trunks as a threat. Read the spoiler in the second example to know how that fight turned out.

**That said, its stance on forgiveness is somewhat more nuanced than most shows: yes, forgiveness is all-important, but nevertheless, there ''are'' some people who are ''completely beyond redemption.''

** Also from ''Rebellion'': {{Fix Fic}}s are childish fantasies only written by people who can't accept the darker parts of reality. As such, they are [[WasItReallyWorthIt completely hollow]].
