* In ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'', Creator/LeonardNimoy preaches his pro-environmental views and gives a [[SpaceWhaleAesop nonsensical justification]] for it. Yet by ''not'' putting those views front and center, and keeping the movie strong on character and humor (also thanks to the screenplay by four skilled writers), [[TropesAreNotBad the trope is barely noticeable when watching.]] It helps that he avoids demonizing the opposition with [[StrawmanPolitical strawmen]] or a cackling, anti-environmental villain. In fact, except for the probe that starts it all (which can [[BlueAndOrangeMorality hardly be considered malevolent]]), this is the first and only StarTrek film to have NoAntagonist.

** The Thirteenth Doctor tends to have episodes which focus more modern social critiques rather than actual sci-fi adventure, with the two most prominent examples being "Rosa" and "Demons of the Punjab". "Rosa" was co-written by Malorie Blackman, who is known to base her stories around the subject of racism. "Demons of the Punjab" was written by Vinay Patel, who has done work criticizing honor killings.

* In ''TableTopGame/VictorianaRPG'''s 2nd Ed. The Authors are very clear to tell the players that sexism, racism, and class breeding are all 'bad,' despite the game using all these. Their harping on this goes back to the 1st edition rules having orcs as Shaka's Zulu tribesman, and the PC police immediately assumed the authors were racists rather than simply making fictional changes in a fictional setting. When they reused this in 2nd ed, they immediately said Orcs were not the only tribals, and they protested it had nothing to do with race. In a game where Ogres can be player characters, this ought to have been obvious. One would think.
* Creator/WhiteWolf was absolutely notorious for their tendency to shoehorn their political and social views into games. From ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' and itís raging [[GreenAesop environmentalism]] and [[CapitalismIsBad anti-capitalism]], to ''TabletopGame/{{Aberrant}}'' and itís constant [[GayAesop Gay Aesops]], you can bet that if White Wolf had an opinion about something [[AuthorTract they would shove it into their books]]. This eventually blew up in their face horribly; they included the ongoing persecution of gay people in Chechnya in a ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasqueradeFifthEdition'' splatbook as an evil vampire conspiracy, sparking a massive controversy that led to their parent company, Creator/ParadoxInteractive, [[CreatorKiller sacking most of White Wolfís staff and turning what was left into an IP-holding company that canít produce anything in-house]].

* During the last few years of Jonny Hart's life, ''ComicStrip/{{BC}}'' was increasingly dominated by the [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist]] Christian beliefs he took up.

* During the last few years of Jonny Hart's Johnny Hart became a born-again Christian later in his life, and afterwards ''ComicStrip/{{BC}}'' became notorious for its occasional pro-Christian sermonizing, including one infamous Easter strip showing a menorah transforming into a cross (WordOfGod was increasingly dominated by that this was merely his way of expressing a new religion coming into its own). What made the [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist]] Christian beliefs he took up. Despite being whole situation rather bizarre was that the strip is ostensibly set in the ''Stone Age''. Probably one of Age'', as the reasons title ''B.C.'' would indicate. One fan theory tried to account for this by speculating that it was later retconned really takes place AfterTheEnd. After Hart's death his [[OutlivedItsCreator daughter and grandson took over the strip]]. They dropped the preachiness and returned to be set AfterTheEnd instead.secular gags.



* After its creator's conversion to born-again Christianity, ''ComicStrip/{{BC}}'' became notorious for its occasional pro-Christian sermonizing, including one infamous Easter strip showing a menorah transforming into a cross (WordOfGod was that this was merely his way of expressing a new religion coming into its own). Which may seem weird given the apparent caveman setting. With Hart's grandson, Mason Mastroianni, in the writer's seat, the preachiness has been dropped and the strip returned to secular gags.


* ''[[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW Friends Forever Issue #14]]'' was written for the sole purpose of pushing the author's views on racism, specifically the ending of ''Dragon Quest'' which the author thought had UnfortunateImplications. Unfortunately the fan consensus is that it did an ''incredibly'' poor job of it by being ''far'' [[{{Anvilicious}} too preachy]], having little to no actual plot, [[WolverinePublicity an outright lying cover]][[note]]It depicted Luna and Spike in a fierce battle against fire-breathing adult dragons, which ''don't even appear in the comic''[[/note]] and putting no focus on Princess Luna and Spike's friendship. It remains the single most disliked issue in the entire [=IDW=] Friendship Is Magic series as a result.

* Wrestling/VinceMcMahon, where to start? Let's with constantly pushing Website/{{Twitter}}, Website/{{Facebook}} and a near worthless app only to turn around and deride Wrestling/BryanDanielson and Wrestling/LowKi as Internet darlings on NXT because they were vastly more popular, experienced and talented than the rookies they were put on TV with (though Wrestling/MichaelCole deserves some blame too). How about putting on a match between "Donald Trump" and "Rosie O'Donnell" because the two had a spat that got tv time, or maybe making Donald Trump the GM of Raw, or you know, all his attempts to make Donald Trump look awesome up to Donald Trump being represented by a wrestler who shaved Vince's head (Hey, [[TropesAreTools tropes are not bad]]) and putting Donald Trump in his hall of fame ahead of the two wrestlers who did all the work([[TropesAreTools tropes are not good]])? Then there is his love of the military, which leads to moronic segments like Wrestling/ScottSteiner debating Wrestling/ChristopherNowinski as well as touching moments like Smackdown Christmas in Iraq. Then there is his love of incest and bodily orifice jokes, which led to an angle where Wrestling/MarkHenry slept with his own sister and then impregnated an [[Wrestling/MaeYoung 80-year-old woman]] who gave birth to a hand.

** In "[[Recap/FamilyGuyS5E18MeetTheQuagmires Meet the Quagmires]]", Peter accidentally creates an alternate timeline where Al Gore won the 2000 US Presidential election instead of George W. Bush. This alternate timeline is presented as a utopia where all the Democratic Party's desired (but highly controversial) policies such as universal healthcare and strict gun control are implemented. Climate change is solved and Al Gore also personally killed Osama Bin Laden.

At best, the only difference is a rather [[{{Anvilicious}} heavy-handed]] {{Aesop}}. At worst, the narrative is put aside so that an AuthorFilibuster can be conducted. When you agree with what the author has to say, but feel that their method of conveyance is detrimental to the work, it becomes a case of DontShootTheMessage. CreatorBreakdown occurs when personal issues within the writer's life drive the authorial intrusion.

* Creator/CharlesDickens frequently used his novels as pulpits for his social commentary. He was famously critical of poverty and child labor laws owing to his own childhood experience working in a factory to help pay his family's debts.
