* One of the entries on ''Clients From Hell'': "[[http://clientsfromhell.net/post/60004865173/will-you-need-to-be-paid-in-currency Will you need to be paid in currency?]]"
* From Ride/DisneyThemeParks, the narration for the now-defunct ''Adventures Through Inner Space'' did this several times.
--> (while the car is surrounded by giant snowflakes) "These are snowflakes!"
--> "And yet this wall of ice only ''seems'' smooth and solid. From this tiny perspective, I can see that nothing is solid, no matter how it appears!"
--> "Yes... these are ''water'' molecules! [=H2O=]... Two hydrogen atoms bonded to a single oxygen atom."
* ''TheOnion'' is fond of using this for humor, as in their article "[[http://www.theonion.com/content/news/investigators_determine_air_france?utm_source=a-section Investigators Determine Air France Disaster Caused By Plane Crash]]".
** [[http://www.theonion.com/video/study-multiple-stab-wounds-may-be-harmful-to-monke,14150/ "Study: Multiple Stab Wounds May Be Harmful To Monkeys"]] combines this with ForScience.
** The Onion's parodying, in part, the tendency of real news media to keep repeating the same threadbare information again and again as a breaking story develops, since they have nothing substantial to report at the moment, but they have to keep covering the story. For example, one MSNBC expert's analysis of a dark spot in a photograph was "it's definitely... definitely something that's ...there". He was probably trying to say it's not a spot on the lens, but ''still''...
* Scott Goodyear, a former Indy car driver turned commentator for the Indycar Series for races on ABC. I told my dad he is so obvious and my dad didn't believe me. After some time my dad told me after he though about it he realized that Scott Goodyear is obvious. Needless to say it has become a running joke for us that anytime someone says something obvious we say that "Scott Goodyear has started doing x".
* In TVTropes, tropers will {{pothole}} a word, phrase, etc. that is considered to be... well... completely obvious, to [[PotholeMagnet this page]].
** "Five hats means that five tropers think it is ready to publish.". At least partially obvious.
** Also, this very page is about a trope which highlights easily discovered events that are pointed out to the audience, as if they had no clue what was going on. This trope is called "CaptainObvious" and it's on the website you're currently on called TVTropes (the url address is http://tvtropes.org/). On a side note, TV Tropes is a webpage which features articles about multiple tropes seen throughout many forms of media, such as literature, live-action T.V. shows, anime/manga, video games, comic books, and in several cases, even ''real life''!
** Any disambiguation page that says it's [[ShapedLikeItself a disambiguation page]].
* Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} does this a lot.
** From the first sentence of their article on the Seville Cathedral: "Seville Cathedral...is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Seville"
** Any time you see the phrase "this is likely a reference to..." on ThatOtherWiki, get ready for an eye-rollingly obvious statement.
** Also from ThatOtherWiki: "Ion exchange is [[ShapedLikeItself an exchange of ions]]...".
** The section on dizygotic (fraternal) twins in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin Twins article]]:
--->Like any other siblings, DZ twins may look similar, particularly given that they are the same age. However, DZ twins may also look very different from each other. They may be of different sexes or the same sex. The same holds true for brothers and sisters from the same parents, meaning that DZ twins are simply brothers and/or sisters who happen to be the same age.
** The U.S. Air Force Symbol is the Symbol of the U.S. Air Force.
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight-man_football "The main difference between 11 man and 8 man football is most notably the elimination of three players."]]

*** Every Wikipedia article about integers is worded in such a way. They mostly exist because of their meanings in fields of science, or symbolicism in religion, in media, slang, etc.
** "A barn door is a door characteristic of a barn. They are often/always found on barns..."
** Several animal articles will seem redundant if you know the basic information about the animal in question. For example, referring to "a venomous viper" is common. (There are no ''non''-venomous vipers.)
* The annoying YouTube meme, "Thumbs up if you're watching this in [current year]", which is posted on videos with some kind of nostalgic value. The default snarky reply is, "No, I'm watching this in [year in distant past or distant future]."
* [[http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,983116,00.html Apparently there's porn on the internet.]]
* I think he [[http://voicetalentproductions.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/captain-obvious.jpg is a captain]].
* Obviously, [[http://leohao.ru/browser.php?g=new=67 this guy]] was hanged by Captain Obvious for his crimes against the obviousness.
* The [[MemeticMutation O RLY?]] fad was an infamous snarky comeback to those who state the obvious.
** As is the You Don't Say face.

* Creator/RodSerling narrating the Pinball/TwilightZone pinball tends to delve into this.
--> (announcing the "Town Square Madness" mode) "There's madness...in Town Square."
--> (announcing the "Clock Millions" mode) "This clock...is worth millions"
* The whole "FAIL" meme revolves around unnecessarily stamping the word "FAIL" onto a picture of something that is obviously hilariously stupid.
