* In ''Anime/GaoGaiGar FINAL'', Renee and Soldat J suddenly discover that by putting their GreenRocks together, they power up. They stare at the jewels for a few moments, considering. The G and J emblems are flashing inside the jewels -- {{synchronization}} ahoy. Right at this point, a fragment of the opening theme starts playing: "Bright oath, ''G and J'', illuminate our wish for peace!"

* In ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', all the time. TheNarrator always need to explain what is already happening on screen. TropesAreNotBad, however, as the narrator is well-loved among fans for his [[LargeHam hamminess]] and [[MemeticMutation memeticness]]. Even Speedwagon is entertained!

** The theme of friendship is explained at the end of many episodes, with the iconic line "Dear Princess Celestia..." Not always, however; a few episodes do not reiterate the message at all, and a few end with the characters moving to write the letter because that's what the characters would do, but ''not'' showing or dictating its contents.

Not always, however; a few episodes do not reiterate the message at all, and a few end with the characters moving to write the letter because that's what the characters would do, but ''not'' showing or dictating its contents. By the end of season five, the trope is dropped completely, as the writers that any kids watching since the first season would have [[GrowingWithTheAudience grown up enough]] by that point that they wouldn't need to have the moral continually reiterated for them.


* Near the end of the final arc of ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII'', Uzume has a [[Flashback flashback sequence]] that heavily implies that [[spoiler:Umio is a creation of her daydream powers, based off of a man who protected her with his life, going as far to repeat an exact line from earlier in the game.]] Enjoy the moment while it lasts, however, because Neptune immediately proceeds to state it outright.

not. It's on its way to becoming a DeadHorseTrope as well, where parodies using some kind of SpoofAesop (like "never tell the audience what they learned") in place of the unstated theme or inverting it by having ''no'' theme, but mentioning the viewer knows what it's about are much more common.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episodes frequently end with Kyle and/or Stan announcing "I've learned something today". Then the character delivers either a SpoofAesop or [[AnAesop an Aesop played straight]] if the writers are feeling humorless or patronizing.

Then the character delivers either a SpoofAesop or [[AnAesop an Aesop played straight]] if the writers are feeling humorless or patronizing. This is spoofed in one episode where the boys keep making their situation worse even when kyle successfully predicts how (terribly) things will turn out if they keep doing things the way that they are.

*** The episode "The Masked Magician" takes this UpToEleven, when Timmy says "I learned that 'I'm sorry' can be the only magic words you need" followed by "MORAL OF THE STORY" flashing on the screen.
