* The narration box often labels items in ''ComicStrip/DickTracy'' that don't need to be described. After 90 years it's still informing readers of his watch-phone, and in 2009 it helpfully pointed out that a game of solitaire was indeed solitaire. (The game had nothing to do with the plot, naturally.)
** Magazine/{{MAD}} Magazine once parodied this with a label labelled "label."
* In ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' a man has painted obvious [[ExpoLabel Expo Labels]] on everything such as "My Shirt," "The House," "The Cat" and is saying "That should clear things up around here!"
* In ''ComicStrip/NonSequitur'' a recurring character has an alter ego named "Obviousman", who swoops in dressed like a superhero, complete with cape and [[VisualPun a big red circle and slash over the word "DUH!" on his chest]]. His mission is to point out the (usually snarky) obvious to the oblivious, though given [[WhatAnIdiot the intelligence of the people he needs to rescue]], he is rarely thanked for this.
* Parodied in ''Webcomic/RipHaywire'' where a temporary character says such things as "Sharks!" "It blew up!" and "Why do I keep on shouting the Obvious!"
* ''{{Spider-Man}}'''s narration box bangs the reader over the head with the obvious almost as often.
