Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })A character whose purpose is to provide Infodumps and explain the plot. Ostensibly, this is for the benefit of the protagonists, but most of the time their real reason for existing is to provide Exposition to the audience. This is why they spend so much time explaining things the protagonists already know. Popular in Science Is Bad stories, where you can bet the Mad Scientist in charge will have a tape recorder with him at all times that he's always dictating his progress to. Mr. Exposition is also an essential component of the Instructional Dialogue. In spite of the name, this is an equal-opportunity position, as the many female examples below demonstrate.
The Watson, especially if Constantly Curious, may force Mr. Exposition into this role.
See also Captain Obvious, Expositron 9000, Haunted House Historian. The Combat Commentator is a variation that provides color commentary for ongoing fights. Not to be confused with Ms. Fanservice, though the comparison could make for some interesting puns.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Can be very high on the Sorting Algorithm of Mortality. Expect someone to kill him off once he's done expositing. In an ongoing series, however (especially where a Mission Briefing is involved), his odds of survival tend to be better, and he'll often serve this role in an ongoing capacity.

Noob:
Arthéon fills this role due to being the one the most interested in the game's background. Sometimes Omega Zell needs to get him to stop talking. Ivy and Couette fill this role in his absence and are better at only giving the information needed to understand the current situation and nothing else.
The setting being a fictional MMORPG, plenty of Non Player Characters are this.

Homeworld:
Fleet Intelligence in the original game has this role largely to himself in cutscenes, but in subsequent games the player-character provides some of their own.
The 10 minute Info Dump in the beginning is apparently narrated by the Bentusi, as is the Final cutscene.

Dragon Age:
As is standard for BioWare games, very nearly any speaking character, and especially companions, can be persuaded into launching into huge conversations about themselves, their people, and the current situation at the drop of a hat.
Dragon Age II: Varric is a bigger example than normal, because not only is he the only party member native to Kirkwall (meaning he has a lot of relevant exposition), he's a bard, a writer, and is telling the story of the game to Seeker Cassandra.
Dragon Age: Inquisition:
Solas loves learning and teaching people new things, so he greatly respects a curious mind. He's the only party member to earn minor approval bonuses just from asking normal questions.
In the Trespasser DLC, Solas appears at the end to explain the plot of the DLC—and much of the plot of the entire franchise, really. While the player already knows some of these answers, the character knows almost none of them. "You must have many questions." You do, however, have the option to skip it all by choosing the option "No, not really." Solas, annoyed, summarizes a fifteen minute conversation in thirty seconds, solves your malfunctioning mark in the most painful way possible, and leaves. You don't even get a chance to ask any more questions.

Ranma ½: At first, it appears that Dr. Tôfû Ono is going to fulfill this role, but it fails to happen, partially because of his tendency to become a bumbling idiot when Akane's sister, Kasumi is around (to the point where he actidentally destroys potential cures for their problems), and partially because of the introduction of the and Trickster Mentor Cologne. To lesser extent, Happôsai. In fact, the manga gave him Chuck Cunningham Syndrome; he vanished by the end of the first Cologne story arc. The anime kept him on as a bit-character and an excuse for filler episodes.

Highschool of the Dead: Saya Takagi was the smartest girl at Fujimi High and possesses near encyclopaedic level intellect. So she'll often provide the reader and the other characters with detailed analysis of their current situation.
During the outbreak at the school, she explained why going to the staff room for help was a bad idea. She was also able to accurately assess why the police weren't responding and why they hadn't heard any sirens yet, when Hirano brought it up.
When all the electronics at the Takagi Estate went dead in chapter 15, she was able to deduce it'd been the work of an EMP blast and gave a detailed summation of how they worked, to Takashi and the others.
And during chapter 28, she tells them about the JGSDF's evacuation plan, after finding a report about it (albeit, with help from Alice) on one of the computers at the police HQ, where Rei's father was stationed.
It was even lampshaded by WatchMojo.com, during their countdown of the Top 10 'Anime Cliches'. No.8 on the list, was: "overuse of exposition" where they specifically singled out Saya (seen at 2:20-2:31):

Sluggy Freelance:
Parodied with Dr. Viennason. His DVD series "A Visual Guide to Timeless Space" gives pretty much all the exposition during the "Oceans Unmoving" arc... and he does it so poorly most characters consider it a form of torture.
Exposition in Sluggy is as natural as breathing to the characters. They don't think anything is wrong when it happens.
Old-Riff in the 4U City Red arc spouts exposition for weeks.

Initially Shirayuki is Ichigo's most useful and constant source of information about zanpakuto and Soul Society in The Snow Has Stopped The Rain. The trope is played down after Zangetsu shows up and they get Rukia back, since then the job could be shared among more people.

In Patlabor, that's usually Asuma's job:
During the police pursuit in chapter 1, he broke the 4th wall when Noa complained she couldn't keep up with all the geographical data, by saying he'd explain two pages later. Sure enough, he whipped out a map and pointer to explain where their units were positioned and how they intended to set up the dragnet!
And whenever Noa goes up against enemy Labor units, he usually gives her a brief analysis of their make and model, as well as any design flaws they may have. Highlighted during the the tunnel scene near the climax of Patlabor: The Movie 2, where Asuma provides intel on the Ixtl units and devises how to systematically take them down.

Once Roxas is out of the picture, Master Yen Sid from Fantasia serves this role to Sora.

Wes Craven in Wes Craven's New Nightmare serves to explain the entire plot to Heather Langenkamp (and by extension the audience).

All the issues of Cable & Deadpool after #13 feature Deadpool doing a 4th wall breaking recap page in the beginning of the comic. His "Little Yellow Boxes" are also filled with expository dialogue, among other musings. In other words, he's crazy so when he starts rattling on about what came before, the other characters are just relieved he isn't shooting them.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat plays this trope pretty much straight; the narrator's only purpose is to tell the audience exactly what's going on at any given moment, vacillating between extremely obvious information and occasionally useful information about the action.

Parodied in The Real Inspector Hound by the play-within-a-play's Mrs. Drudge, who answers the phone, "Hello, the drawing-room of Lady Muldoon's country residence one morning in early spring?" and "I'm afraid there is no one of that name here, this all very mysterious and I'm sure it's leading up to something, I hope nothing is amiss for we, that is Lady Muldoon and her house guests, are here cut off from the world, including Magnus, the wheel-chair-ridden half-brother of the ladyship's husband Lord Albert Muldoon who ten tears ago went for a walk on the cliff and was never seen again."

RWBY:
Dr. Oobleck is the history teacher for Beacon Academy. His primary role is to educate the students, and therefore the audience, on the world of Remnant. Even when he's leading Team RWBY on a field-trip, he scatters lectures throughout their mission to explain the setting to the audience. Through him, the students and audience are introduced to the existence of a series of Faunus Wars between humanity and Faunus because the Faunus struggle with racism and equality; he explains the history of Mountain Glenn, and introduces the concept that the Grimm gain intelligence and patience as they get older and more experienced. During the Vytal Festival, he acts as one of the tournament commentators, introducing the in-universe and out-of-universe audiences to the students taking part in the competition and their abilities.
The World of Remnant episodes are a series of very short episodes scattered through Volumes 2-4 that give background information on the World of Remnant to explains such things as Aura, Dust, Grimm, the CCT global communications, Faunus, the different Kingdoms, the Great War and the global dominance of the Schnee Dust Company. Each volume has a different narrator who explains the information to the audience in a completely in-character manner. Salem ominously narrates the Volume 2 information on Aura, Dust and the Grimm and implying these things are connected to a dark history that humanity has been forced to forget. Ozpin gives a more optimistic narration in Volume 3 of the achievements and limitations of humanity, such as the CCT, and how endeavour brings humanity together. In Volume 4, Qrow, who stands in for Ozpin when the headmaster goes missing after Volume 3, narrates the history of the Kingdoms and the SDC, with his usual cynicism and occasionally pausing to swig alcohol. His personal animosity towards the SDC during that narration implies he might possibly be an Unreliable Narrator in places.

Dragon Age: Inquisition:
Solas loves learning and teaching people new things, so he greatly respects a curious mind. He's the only party member to earn minor approval bonuses just from asking normal questions.
In the Trespasser DLC, Solas appears at the end to explain the plot of the DLC—and much of the plot of the entire franchise, really. While the player already knows some of these answers, the character knows almost none of them. "You must have many questions." You do, however, have the option to skip it all by choosing the option "No, not really." Solas, annoyed, summarizes a fifteen minute conversation in thirty seconds, solves your malfunctioning mark in the most painful way possible, and leaves. You don't even get a chance to ask any more questions.

Harry Potter
Dumbledore fills this role quite a bit. From beyond the grave, at one point! He basically turns up in some inexplicable magical phenomenon that is barely even given a Hand Wave, and says 'Hi, here's a hastily thrown-together explanation to tie up ALL the loose ends so far, by the way, you're not really dead, go finish off the plot now, ya big ol' protagonist.'
Hermione does this on occasion, filling Ron and Harry in on some unknown magic they encounter — especially when it's information that can be learned from reading books or paying attention in class, which they tend not to do.
Ron usually fills Harry and Hermione (who were both raised by Muggles) in on aspects of Wizard culture that he learned by growing up in it.
Occasionally, Harry explains to the both of them some new info on the plot, but usually he just sums up Dumbledore's long speeches into neat little packages for the sake of the readers. This tends to distribute the buttload of exposition rather nicely.

Tenchi Muyo!: Washu usually is Miss Exposition in the manga, popping in to explain one concept another character mentions to a third character... so when Yoshi uses Big Words when talking to a villain, Yoshi stops his exposition to wait for her.

The Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note series actually have each member of The Team to provide exposition on one area, so as to fulfill its edutainment mandate. The anime downplayed most of these, but mainly as a side effect of Compressed Adaptation.
The only example of this trope being retained in the anime is that of Kozuka, who has the tendency to provide this on factoids that may or may not be relevant to the case on hand, particularly scientific ones.
Wakatake often provides information on law, particularly about what actions broke which clauses of the Japanese Criminal Code.
Uesuka is already Good At Numbers, but as the son of doctors, he's the one to provide medical backgrounders.

Attack on Titan has a couple of examples:
The first is Eren Kruger, whose exposition is given via Grisha Yeager's flashbacks. He's essentially a case of a Posthumous Mr. Exposition.
Secondly we have Willy Tybur. He shows up for a few chapters to deliver a speech about the supposed true history of Paradis Island and how Eren holds evil powers and could destroy the world... and is then promptly killed by Eren, who was listening to all the exposition.
Another minor example is Kiyomi Azumabito. Her main purpose seems to be providing exposition about Mikasa's mother's homeland, Hizuru, and the nation's role in supporting Paradis.

Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction:
Agent Washington dispenses all sorts of information about Project Freelancer and the AIs it uses. According to the DVD commentary, Church served in this role for plot recaps in the original series.
It wasn't nearly limited to plot recaps. Burnie (voice of Church and creator of the series) admits in the commentary that he always gave Church most, if not all, of the exposition necessary to move the plot forward since it was always a large number of lines and if necessary, he could always just redo them himself rather than call everybody back in again to do their voices for the ninth time to fill in another plot hole he just noticed. The entire rest of the cast (until Washington's appearance) was merely there for comic relief, while Church had the sole duty of carrying the entire plot around on his back. It's no wonder he was always so damn irritable.
Andy, being the only one who can understand the Alien, serves this role in Season 4.

In the Whateley Universe, a lot of the teams at Whateley Academy seem to have them. Ferret of the Good Ol' Boyz, Stopwatch of the Masterminds, Foxfire of the Whitman Literary Girls (well, it's not really a superhero team). This makes sense, because Ferret is the information-finder and inventor for his team, while Stopwatch is the information-collector and inventor and obsessive control-freak leader of his team. Foxfire has the problem that several members of her group are much bigger expositors than she is, so she has to cut them off just to get in her own exposition. And Phase, for Team Kimba. If there's an answer to be given, especially in a class, you cannot shut him up.

Snow Crash: The Librarian is an expensive computer program owned by the protagonist that is literally an anthropomorphization of all the world's collected information and knowledge, sort of like a talking 200x-size Wikipedia.

Unusually for an FF game, Cloud, the player character, is this in Final Fantasy VII. This was done intentionally - one of the main conceits for the game was that Cloud should appear as an experienced character and an active driving force in the plot (to contrast with the usual Pinball Protagonist Idiot Hero characters of the genre), meaning he had to know what was going on before anyone else did. This extends to him explaining the game mechanics to NPCs instead of having them teach him, narrating playable flashback sequences and occasionally summarising the story so far to party members struggling to follow what's going on. This even continues after it's revealed that he's not experienced and was doing everything he did out of Mind Control, when he explains the magic mechanics of his personality crisis.

Tokyo Mew Mew: Ryou and sometimes Keiichiro. A hilarious example of this occurs with Masaya in the first episode of Tokyo Crystal Mew. He even feels the need to describe what he looked like in his Deep Blue form.

The four encounter several Mr. Expositions in The Keys Stand Alone: The Soft World, much to their annoyance:
Most of the Guardians have this tendency, especially Spectrem.
When the four finally talk to the Pyar gods, Meddar Pyar spouts a huge amount of essentially worthless repetitive exposition:

Homestuck:
Nannasprite fills both John and the audience in on things like "why meteors?".
About 6000 pages in, Calliope seems to have made it her job to, in between cryptic Foreshadowing, explain how the reality-warping game at the center of the story is supposed to work when everyone isn't going out of their way to break it.
Aranea gives very lengthy history lessons to everyone in sight. This is regularly pointed out and mocked by the other characters. Hell, in the Act 6 Act 3 Intermission she starts PAYING people to listen to her Info Dumps. The fact that she's never been a "playable" character in Homestuck note i.e. she has never been controllable in a walkaround page, and has never had a command issued to her by the reader could suggest that she was only created to be a walking exposition dump.
Rose took on the role to explain to Dave about the Scratch, Null Sessions and what they're plan is when they get there. She and Kanaya researched it and compiled all the data about their experiences (and how the game works) into a tome which winds up in Calliope's hands, edited by Gamzee, which is the source of her information.

The Dinoverse books always have someone to spout off exposition about dinosaurs and contemporary plants. Bertram, a dinosaur geek fascinated by the Time Travel, makes sense; Janine, with only mild interest in the era, knowing about ankylosaurs and gas less so. Mr. London calling out exposition about big predatory dinosaurs while cringing in the mud is kind of jarring. Most of the other characters don't know a lot about these topics.

Mazinger Z: Professor Yumi is both The Professor and The Mentor, so he frequently explains to the characters -and the audience- plot points. He was the one guessed first what was Mazinger-Z and who had created it. He explained how Dr. Kabuto had discovered Photon Atomic power and Alloy-Z and built Mazinger-Z with them. He narrated how Dr. Kabuto met Dr. Hell and what happened in Bardos Island. He recognized Minerva-X and explained what she was and how she worked. He explained what were the Mykene and where they came from... And often during the series he explained what strategy the enemy or Kouji was using, how worked the Mechanical Beasts' weapons... or simply what kind of training Kouji was undergoing. In Mazinkaiser he retained that role (he recognized Mazinkaiser as soon as he saw it, he explained how they had modified to Mazinkaiser in the movie...)

The Global Guardians PBEM Universe has a villainous example: The Hermit of Tarot has the power to see patterns of cause and effect. By studying literally anything, he can detect the patterns involved and predict what will happen next with almost pinpoint certainty. The Emperor has him study the stock market, news reports, the weather, and pretty much every other type of continually-updated information in order to predict world trends and to explain past events. This makes him Tarot's own personal Mr. Exposition.

The Order of the Stick:
The bard Elan even has a spell called "Summon Plot Exposition" which creates dramatic illusionary pictures that accompany Elan's voice-overs. He also cries when someone else pulls off a good plot recap.
Redcloak often fills this role on the villain's side, with the help of a series of short-lived, lower-ranking hobgoblins (or the Monster in the Darkness).
Wrecan plays this roll for a while, to the point where Belkar calls him the "Sacred Knight of the Expository Aside".

Skyrim, much like Daggerfall, distributes exposition over a number of characters, including the guardsman at the Western Watchtower (who tells you about the legend of the Dragonborn after you kill your first dragon), Farengar (who tells you about the Dragon War), Jarl Balgruuf (who tells you about the Greybeards of High Hrothgar), the Greybeards themselves (who tell you about the Voice), and the Blades (who fill in details about the Great War and the Thalmor).

Akiyama in Liar Game spends a lot of time doing this as he explains various strategies throughout.

Pretty much any character who can be communicated with via CODEC in the Metal Gear series. For example, Dr. Naomi in the first Metal Gear Solid goes into in-depth detail explaining the back-stories of all the FOXHOUND members Solid Snake faces, whereas Drebin does the same with the B&B Corps in Metal Gear Solid 4. Ironically, Solid Snake himself serves this role to Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2.
The Colonel, Otacon, and Mei Ling. and once Slippy all serve this role in Snake's codec conversations in Super Smash Bros.. Brawl, explaining information on Nintendo characters that Snake doesn't know about.
Nastasha Romanenko from the first Metal Gear Solid is notable for being a CODEC contact who serves no story or gameplay function whatsoever (the player can go through the entire game without contacting her once,) existing soley as an exposition dispenser about various weapons and equipment and giving random factoids about nuclear warfare.

Undertale:
Parodied at first, it seems like Undyne will start explaining the backstory of the Underground... until she realizes that it doesn't really matter if she does, as she will have to kill you anyway. Though if you befriend her on a pacifist run and call her in that room, she admits the "screw it" was because she forgot the speech she was actually supposed to give.
Played straight later. In the final walk up to the final boss, the monsters of the Underground will tell you the greatest tragedy of the underground, the death of the first human to fall and the monster prince's death at the hands of humans when he left to fulfill his sibling's last wish. On the No Mercy run, this is replaced with Flowey giving a chilling account of how his lack of empathy and compassion turned him into the sociopathic monster he currently is.

Holly and Kryten in Red Dwarf. Note the redundancy; the producers did, and when they needed to get rid of a character for the sixth season, Holly was Put on a Bus with the rationale that the exposition could be given to Kryten. The writers later found themselves in the same position again, when the newly-introduced Kochanski became Ms. Exposition, and Kryten was relegated to the servile mother-figure that he'd grown out of over the course of the series.
They never really explained why a robot programmed to clean toilets was an expert on GELFs and time dilation in the first place; although this could (and Word of God says does) explain why Lister remembers the defunct timeline from "White Hole" in "Demons & Angels", when the former episode ends with Kryten explaining he won't.
Lampshaded in one of the show's "blooper" compilations where host Kryten testily responds to a viewer question about his getting a fact wrong in the episode "DNA", something along the lines of "I'm sorry, I must have been absent the day they gave the lecture on cellular genetics at Toilet University! In other words, I made a MISTAKE, OK?!"

Stargate SG-1 has a complete and energetic crew of Exposition People, ready to service your every plot related need. We have:
Samantha Carter, for technological and astronomical info;
Daniel Jackson, for historical, linguistic and cultural info;
In the earlier seasons, Teal'c for Goa'uld and Jaffa info;
And of course we have Jack O'Neill, for all your smart-to-layman translation needs.
Colonel Mitchell even got in on this, excitedly describing the relevant bits of previous missions when similar situations arise. The in-universe explanation is that he read all of SG-1's mission reports while he was in the hospital recovering from an injury acquired while saving SG-1's asses in the season 7 finale. This is most definitely for the audience's benefit since the people he's usually talking to—Teal'c, Sam, and Daniel—were all actually there for those missions.

Hannibal on The A-Team would explain the bad guys' plot to the rest of the A-Team and the audience in every single episode. In the Season 2 finale, "Curtain Call," when Murdock gets shot in the shoulder, Hannibal spends the majority of a scene explaining why bits of cloth and such caught in the bullet hole were more likely to cause an infection than than the bullet itself. Then he explains what would happen to Murdock's body as the infection begins if they cannot get supplies in time.

Steven Universe has a lot to learn about Gem history, which the Crystal Gems (and sometimes Greg) are there to provide. Pearl seems to revel in this job, complete with holograms as a visual aide, while Garnet steps in when Pearl's not around or for subjects she has more experience in, like her future vision powers or in-depth discussions of fusion. Amethyst's contributions mostly involve blurting the occasional Awful Truth.
Reality Ensues in one episode when Pearl tries to explain sword techniques during a spar, causing her to get distracted from her opponent. It doesn't end well.

Raine and Kratos (being the experienced adults of the party) filled this role early on in Tales of Symphonia. Raine - being a teacher - would even occasionally force her students (Lloyd, Genis and Colette) into this role, making them rattle off info about a location they just arrived at as a pop quiz. Once Te'thealla is introduced (which was beyond the knowledge of anyone in the party at that point besides Kratos,) Sheena would step in to fill this role, with Zelos occasionally helping out.
Remiel's sole purpose in the narrative is to give Colette her Cruxis Crystal at the start of her Journey of Regeneration and then pop in at each seal to grant Colette another angel power and point her to the next seal. Also to tell her that he's her father. Except that he's not; he's actually an arrogant Manipulative Bastard who's slowly suppressing Colette's humanity with each angel power, and the party ends up killing him at the Tower of Salvation.

Pick any character with a speaking role in Mass Effect. Any character. However, most of the time you can just not ask them stuff. ME2 makes this process even more clear-cut; much of the game's extra exposition is on the crew's personal backstories, and they provide those details if you ask. As far as the main plot goes, exposition tends to come from the Illusive Man and the various Cerberus crew members, and occasionally Mordin on questions of science.
As a straighter example, Vigil from the first Mass Effect. Explains everything in the game up to that point; what the Conduit is, what Saren wants with it, the fate of the Protheans, and how to stop Sovereign before it's too late.

Sinister features Vincent D'Onofrio as a daemon expert who informs the main character, played by Ethan Hawke, that the daemon who is giving him problems is named Bughuul. This has led to RedLetterMedia referring to him as "Skype Exposition Man" in several of their videos after their review of the film because he only exists on Skype, and only exists to give Ethan Hawke's character exposition.

Amusingly, The Dresden Files role-playing game has a skill called Exposition and Knowledge Dumping, a sub-skill of Scholarship. On a successful use, the Game Master can "borrow" the Player Character in order to turn him into a Mr. Exposition about the relevant subject. This actually cuts the middleman out of the traditional RPG knowledge skill check, which usually amounts to "Player makes Knowledge check, GM Info Dumps, Player says 'Okay, I relate this to everyone else'."

Lost:
Daniel Faraday fits the bill, though he doesn't quite know everything. Nor does he tell all that he does know. Nor does he think everybody else would understand if he tried. After the episode "The Variable", he becomes a posthumous Mr. Exposition once his journal outlives him.
In season five, his mysterious mother Eloise Hawking suddenly turns into this. "316" opens with a huge lecture by her about how the Island was found, why it's so hard to find the Island, what they need to do to return...followed by a shorter scene where she tells Jack even more detail about why he has to return...

Darker Than Black:
Subverted at the beginning. One of the characters is a scientist who had been working on the Gate. She gives us a rather hefty dose of Expospeak to explain the Contractor-related weirdness; however it turns out she doesn't even know who she is. As such, 90% of anything anyone says in the first two episodes is misinformed at best and Blatant Lies at worst.
Later the trope is played straight with Dr. Schroeder, who appears to be the only person on (or off) the show who both has some idea what's going on and is inclined to share.

Subverted in The Wheel of Time: Robert Jordan had stated that several times characters are guessing when giving exposition so you can never tell which Forsaken is the strongest (especially between men and women), or how the hell Mat's dagger actually works. The best example, is in Crown of Swords, where the Aes Sedai accompanying Elayne, and Nynaeve, tell her the Kin are a small group of women who help runaways, and the Aes Sedai use them to find the runaways. Later in the book it becomes clear that while the Aes Sedai are successfully using the Kin at least now and then, they are completely mistaken about the size of the group, when the leaders of the Kin explain that they number about 2,000.

In C.S.

This is the sole purpose for the existence of Travis in killer7. As you go through each mission, he informs you why you're there and what's happened thus far. Since the Killer7 are only called in once things have degraded to where someone has to die, this is essentially Late to the Tragedy embodied in a character. And you can never be sure if Travis (who openly despises you) is telling the truth, either...
Even better than that, while Travis does display open contempt for the Smiths at points, he shows it by being the most honest and trustworthy character in the game. When he says he'll talk "straight up," he's usually getting ready to tell you something you'd really rather not know.
At least he's more trustworthy than Iwazaru. And less annoying than Kess, who tells you how to defeat the next boss.

Nox, the Big Bad in season 1, provides plenty of exposition... mostly by soliloquizing. Or through his own "clockwork puppet show". Which is still perfectly in character, considering that he's insane. And damn creepy while doing so.
Ruel Stroud, being the oldest and most well-traveled of the Five-Man Band, otherwise fulfill this role for the heroes about the various places they visit or people they meet. And he's doing it mostly for free!

In Star Trek: The Original Series, Spock the Omnidisciplinary Scientist usually filled this role — including much knowledge about history. In the fourth movie The Voyage Home, he's aware of the "colorful metaphors" used on 20th-century Earth.
One exchange in the episode "I, Mudd":

Misawa in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, to the point that it's the sole reason he occasionally takes a bus trip back.
GX is especially bad with card exposition. For example, Pot of Greed is used, and explained, in nearly ever single duel. Sometimes more than once.
And that's with a card anybody who's played the card game for some time already knows the effect of. Meanwhile, we only get skimpy explanations of more interesting cards' effects...

The Elder Scrolls:
Arena plays it straight with the spirit of Ria Silmane, who appears in your dreams and guides you toward finding the pieces of the Staff of Chaos.
Daggerfall distributes the exposition over a large number of NPCs.
Morrowind subverts it in the main quest, as the game gives you several Mr. Exposition type characters (Caius, Azura, Vivec, Dagoth Ur, the Temple giving a different account than Vivec...plus you can do your own research with some in-game texts) all of whom offer contradictory accounts of When It All Began. There are strong hints that Azura, Vivec, and Dagoth Ur have their own motives for lying (or at least not being entirely truthful) and you're never told outright which one was right. A lot is left to personal interpretation.
Skyrim, much like Daggerfall, distributes exposition over a number of characters, including the guardsman at the Western Watchtower (who tells you about the legend of the Dragonborn after you kill your first dragon), Farengar (who tells you about the Dragon War), Jarl Balgruuf (who tells you about the Greybeards of High Hrothgar), the Greybeards themselves (who tell you about the Voice), and the Blades (who fill in details about the Great War and the Thalmor).

Lindsay Brigman in The Abyss does a slightly lampshaded version of this in the early descent scene, as she explains the (plot critical) perils of prolonged deep water diving to a SEAL team that is thoroughly familiar with them. They end up finishing most of her sentences for her.

One Piece lampshades this with the character of Sentomaru. He considers himself "the most tight-lipped man in the world," as he is a member of a highly secretive government branch and as such is privy to hundreds of secrets. The thing is, he's constantly blabbing those secrets and often without the slightest provocation. Whenever he does, he'll start by saying something to the effect of "I'm the most tight-lipped man in the world! You'll get no information from me!" and then proceeding to inform everyone.

At the beginning of every 'Allo 'Allo! episode, Rene breaks the Fourth Wall to explain to the viewer what's been going on.

Final Fantasy:
Unusually for an FF game, Cloud, the player character, is this in Final Fantasy VII. This was done intentionally - one of the main conceits for the game was that Cloud should appear as an experienced character and an active driving force in the plot (to contrast with the usual Pinball Protagonist Idiot Hero characters of the genre), meaning he had to know what was going on before anyone else did. This extends to him explaining the game mechanics to NPCs instead of having them teach him, narrating playable flashback sequences and occasionally summarising the story so far to party members struggling to follow what's going on. This even continues after it's revealed that he's not experienced and was doing everything he did out of Mind Control, when he explains the magic mechanics of his personality crisis.
Bugenhagen shows up early in the game to teach the characters how Lifestream works, which is apparently a mindblowing experience, and then to explain Red XIII's father's history to him. He later turns up to explain to Cloud what Holy is and the risks of unleashing it, which Cloud counters by explaining to him what Aeris must have been up to.
Final Fantasy X:
Maechen from . The difference being the fact he doesn't explain the plot. Instead, he goes in long-winded description of the areas you visit for the first time. Nicknamed "Exposition Man" on VG Recaps.
Auron and Lulu from the same game are guilty of this at certain points, but Auron's a badass so of course you'll listen to whatever he says, right? Right?
Tidus is the game's Watson, and Lulu knows a lot about the world, having gone on two (failed) pilgrimages before accompanying Yuna, and Auron is actually the only character (maybe, aside from Seymour) that actually has any clue what's really going on.

Trailer Park Boys: The character of Sara on the Canadian comedy series served this function in the early seasons, explaining many of the goings-on in the trailer park and putting things into context for the audience. Her doing this was justified by the series being framed as a documentary filmed by a camera crew following the main characters around, so it only made sense that the documentary crew would try and find a way to explain things to the audience.

Game of Thrones:
Jorah Mormont; at least in the first season, as a seasoned advisor and mentor, he mainly exists to inform Daenerys, who is a newcomer, and us about the customs of the Dothraki and other such things. He also takes on this role in season 3, alongside Missandei. Fully aware of this, the producers even refer to him jokingly as "Jorah the Explorer."
Petyr Baelish is also a big vehicle for exposition.
Petyr really takes this role and runs with it like he's training for the exposition olympics in S1E6, in the scene where he advises Ned about the Mountain, dropping As You Know and Captain Obvious statements left and right. He even feels the need to point out the sigil of Ned's wife's house to him, which, given the importance of heraldry in Westeros, and the prominence of House Tully in the social order would be like saying "The swoosh. That's the symbol of Nike. Doesn't your wife work there?"
Jojen explains Bran's powers in his second scene, after two whole seasons went with little to no explanation.
Salladhor explains Stannis's post-Blackwater situation to the recently rescued Davos in the Season 3 premiere.

In the Deryni works, just as there many people who take the part of The Watson at different times, the part of this trope gets split among many characters, justified by the various levels of experience they have, particularly with regard to the magic.
Morgan and Duncan share this role as they prepare the early stages of Kelson's empowering ritual, complete with a demonstration when Morgan attunes his gryphon signet ring to Duncan so his cousin can use it to retrieve Brion's written ritual verse.
Duncan explains to an anxious Nigel about the rules for arcane combat during Kelson's coronation duel with Charissa in Deryni Rising.
Arilan can be very forthcoming, and he is among the most highly trained of Deryni, since his family have successfully hidden their magic for over two centuries. However, his long experience with the Camberian Council (his elder brother Jamyl and his uncle Seisyll were members before him) means he's apt to keep things to himself. The night Morgan and Duncan arranged for Kelson and Dhugal to experience merasha under controlled conditions, Arilan produces the very flask of drugged wine used to in Brion's assassination four years previously, which Arilan retrieved that day. Kelson goes white, Nigel gasps, Duncan crosses himself, and Morgan goes for Arilan's throat, only just pulling up short to clench his fist near Arilan's face.

Fairy Tail had Klodoa, a sentient staff who spends about three chapters explaining the Oracion Seis's plans. Once he's explained everything he's fulfilled his plotline purpose and promptly dies. He's insignificant enough that that's not worth a spoiler tag.
Happy tends to be this when everyone's caught up in battle, and Lucy's also played this at the beginning of the series.

Tabitha's butler in The Familiar of Zero spends about five unbroken minutes spilling Tabitha's back story to someone he'd never even heard of before who just happened to show up with Tabitha at her mansion.
Although, perhaps he does this just to counteract Tabitha's natural tendency not to give any exposition whatsoever. She's like a version of Nagato that only sometimes answers direct questions.

El Goonish Shive:
Mr. Verres once exclaimed "I am an endless barrel of exposition!". As the creator explains, Mr. Verres, Grace and Tedd are the main barrels, but since Tedd and Grace learned most of their information from Mr. Verres, he's directly responsible for most of the expositions in the strip. Also, there are Exposition Fairies, but not in the usual sense.
Mr. Verres was mentored by another barrel, Adrian Raven. Being a son of a human and an immortal, he probably picked up that exposition from his parents... and experience.
The Whales reveal portions of how the very fabric of the universe operates. The fact that Mr. Verres (and presumably Raven) didn't even know about the existence of the Whales is noted to be a big deal.

Verdelet the hierarch from Drakengard, though he is also the most useless party member and tends to repeat himself a dozen times per mission. He has only one spell—a "hold" spell, which is only ever used in cutscenes and allows him to turn Caim's pact partner Angelus into the Goddess of the Seal. When Caim tries to make him release Angelus later on, because the seal causes both of them immense pain, Verdelet refuses (along with the entire Union) because doing so would cause The End of the World as We Know It. Caim's reply is to cut him down in between games.

Final Fantasy X:
Maechen from . The difference being the fact he doesn't explain the plot. Instead, he goes in long-winded description of the areas you visit for the first time. Nicknamed "Exposition Man" on VG Recaps.
Auron and Lulu from the same game are guilty of this at certain points, but Auron's a badass so of course you'll listen to whatever he says, right? Right?
Tidus is the game's Watson, and Lulu knows a lot about the world, having gone on two (failed) pilgrimages before accompanying Yuna, and Auron is actually the only character (maybe, aside from Seymour) that actually has any clue what's really going on.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
Zecora the zebra sometimes acts like this. Whenever something strange happens and none of the ponies in Ponyville know what to do, not even Twilight Sparkle, Zecora is often the one to tell the Mane Cast what's going on.
Spike often does this for Twilight Sparkle.
Twilight herself tends to grab the Exposition Ball whenever she appears in an episode but isn't the mane focus of it.
Celestia herself plays this role in almost every major episode she's apart of, to the point where that is basically her only role in The Movie. Ironically, the only major two-parters where she didn't slip some sort of exposition were the ones where either she was kidnapped or when she actually took matters into her own hooves... not that the latter actually helped.

In Doctor Who, the Doctor always has a traveling companion from modern Earth who would be in the dark if the Doctor didn't explain everything. That seems to be the main function of the cohort, a "Watson" to his "Sherlock".
Notoriously, the Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy used to hand off the technobabble to his assistant, Ace, who would deliver the exposition in the form of a question, allowing the Doctor to a) avoid learning his lines, and b) nod wisely and say "That's right, Ace. You're learning."
Lampshaded in the Peter Capaldi episode "Last Christmas", when Santa Claus starts explaining what is happening, prompting the Doctor to shout, "Line in the sand! I do the scientific explanations!"

This role tends to be shared by various characters in Child of the Storm, if only to help the readers keep up with all the disparate canons when things get particularly complicated, but Loki and Harry Dresden seem to do this the most. That said, Odin and Thor have their moments. And when they aren't doing it, the Lemony Narrator tends to cover things, with Word of God explaining further in the author notes.

Yu-Gi-Oh!: Every single character in the 4Kids dub, often to downright ridiculous lengths. Everyone feels compelled to remind one another (i.e. the viewers) of the continuous effects of every card in play, the effect of a card that has already been played before in an episode (especially "Monster Reborn"), all the way to what happened two minutes ago. This expo-speak always happens at the start of episodes, (referencing previous events), which wouldn't be a bad thing if not for the fact that each episode includes a "last time, on Yu-Gi-Oh!" opening bit. Also always occurs after a commercial (because, well, you know), but sometime even for no reason at all. As an example of the last type, pick any duel in the Battle City finals/semi-finals and count how many times the fact that one of the characters possesses an Egyptian God Card is mentioned. For the truly ambitious, drink every time it's mentioned, and kiss your liver goodbye.
Subverted in the movie when Kaiba interrupts Pegasus' exposition of a card-effect with "Do you ever shut up?"
Also Lampshaded in one episode where an opponent starts to explain the effects of Painful Choice before Kaiba cuts him off with "I know what the card does, you fool."
... And then he explains it anyway.
Misawa in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, to the point that it's the sole reason he occasionally takes a bus trip back.
GX is especially bad with card exposition. For example, Pot of Greed is used, and explained, in nearly ever single duel. Sometimes more than once.
And that's with a card anybody who's played the card game for some time already knows the effect of. Meanwhile, we only get skimpy explanations of more interesting cards' effects...
Rex Goodwin in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. There's a reason fans of 5D's use the term "Rexposition"
ZEXAL really loves this, at least in the first few episodes. Everyone that isn't dueling is only present to explain the rules to the viewers. Even Yuuma gets this treatment in the first episode, when he sees Shark Exceed Summoning a monster. Yuma then proceeds to explain how Exceed Summoning works to Kotori, who already knows how it works (but the viewers don't since it's a new game-mechanic added in ZEXAL). Later in the next episode, Shark explains with almost the same wording how Exceed Summoning works, right after having summoned his Levice Dragon. And then there's all the other Game Mechanics... Needless to say, the duels in the first few episode almost use more time explaining how to play the game than actually playing the game.

Col. Tigh in Battlestar Galactica (2003) often performs the role of Mr. Exposition, although in one episode, President Roslin subverts this by annoyedly thanking him for his insight. Anders managed to be one of these for one episode, finally explaining what the deal with the Final Five was, as well as some background on the Cylons in general. This being BSG, everything was working against him, and only got about halfway through it. Cavil filled a somewhat similar role in the same episode, but he also didn't spill the beans completely.

Big Trouble in Little China
After Wang Chi's fiancee Miao Yin is kidnapped by members of the Lords of Death gang, he and Jack Burton follow them and end in a gang fight at a funeral. Later, Wang's employee Eddie Lee (who's been out gathering information on the streets of Chinatown) walks in and gives an infodump on what happened and why.
Would-be Intrepid Reporter Margo Litzenberger temporarily embodies this trope at one point:

Dietrich in Barney Miller was The Smart Guy and a Renaissance Man, so when the squad encountered things like an amygdalectomy patient, a heart attack, or an atomic bomb, he was usually the one to provide relevant detail. It became a Running Gag; as soon as a visitor said an unfamiliar word, Barney would turn to Dietrich with resignation. (Also played with, such as the episode Tontine where Wojo pipes up with the definition—because Dietrich told him on the way over.)

Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In the dream sequence episode "Restless" he even gets to deliver the exposition in the form of a song.
Which is exactly what he's trained to do for many years. Watchers are supposed to tell the Slayer how to kill the evil monster.
Ex-watcher Wesley filled this role on Angel, though the science stuff was shared with Fred.
Deconstructed with Andrew in an episode of Angel. He explains "vampyres" and the nature of Slayers to Angel and his team, much to their annoyance as they already know pretty much everything.
In later seasons, Willow, Tara, and Anya filled this role sometimes, especially if Giles wasn't around — Willow and Tara would exposit about magic, Anya about demons she met in her thousand-year lifespan.
Dawn was heading this way in Season Seven. She even referred to herself as "Junior Watcher" in the finale.

The Ace Attorney series has the various assistants that go around to assist or comment on the action, and to give general plot recaps at the beginning of each chapter. Most often, it has been Maya Fey, though Pearl takes her place a couple times during the second and 3rd games and she is replaced entirely by Trucy in the 4th. Then Athena gets the role sometimes in the 5th and the 6th.

Durarara!!'s resident nerdy motormouth, Shinra Kishitani, is usually the first to offer any sort of explanation as of the weirder elements of the series such as "how can Celty see, hear and smell if she has no head" or "how can Shizuo be so damn skinny and so damn strong at the same time?" The only one whoever seems particularly interested in Shinra's hypotheses are Shinra himself, so his explanations are typically either ignored (by Celty) or interrupted with physical harm (by Shizuo).

Ardeth Bey in The Mummy Returns, which actually is quite at odds with his characterization in the first film. As Stephen Sommers says on the commentary track, "In the first film Ardeth Bey was this cool, mysterious character. Here he's just a chatterbox. Every chance he gets, it's just wave after wave of exposition." In fact, he refers to the character as Mr. Exposition. There's some exposition provided by him in the first one, too. For example, the very crucial fact that you can't shoot Imhotep. And the entire prologue.

Hakkai in Saiyuki sometimes plays this role, explaining things from plot points to random background information on specific items to puns. On one occasion, when the ikkou are trying to escape from the scorpion youkai's underground trap and the ceiling starts to collapse on them, he goes into this mode to point out that they've just escaped their cell by breaking one of the walls (something Hakkai apparently tried to warn them against) and so the remains of the lair can no longer hold the weight of the sand above, prompting Goku and Gojyo to yell that he should be saying this sort of stuff sooner.

Dr. Inez Fressange of Martian Successor Nadesico abuses this trope to the point of parody: she is actually acknowledged as the "explanation woman" by the whole crew of the Nadesico battle spaceship. There have been cases where she senses her explanations are needed from several rooms/decks over, and she once uses exposition as her talent in a beauty contest. One episode has several of the crew, including Inez, find their personalities inverted from their normal ones and are all in desperate need of an explanation? She's shown in her room quietly enjoying a glass of fruit juice, not saying a word.

Rurouni Kenshin: Sanosuke is often relegated to providing commentary during Kenshin's fights, to either explain Kenshin's attacks, or his opponent's, or simply how the fight is progressing insofar as which of them has the upperhand at the moment.

Future Ted in How I Met Your Mother, usually in order to provide shortcuts to the main plot of an episode by pausing the action to explain a bit of essential backstory to his kids. Varies a lot in its delivery, sometimes segueing to a series of flashbacks or cutaway gags to explain something, sometimes tossing in a tidbit of relevant information (e.g., stopping to tell his kids that Marshall had a temporary filling put in that day, which wasn't seen in the episode, so that the story makes sense).

Guy from Tales of the Abyss is often forced into this role by Jade. So much that it was a Running Gag.
He was one of these before he even met Jade, though. In his first conversation with Luke, he says "[the headaches] are getting more frequent. They started after you were kidnapped by the Malkuth Empire." Yeah, I'm pretty sure Luke knows that already.

Jetfire in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen just does not shut up. His exposition after being introduced is a good portion of the remainder of his on-screen appearance. When he first meets Sam and Mikaela, he rants a solid 2 minutes about the most nonsensical old man banter, like his father being the first wheel made in the Stone Age, and his problems with his mother. Later, he explains almost the entirety of Cybertron's history before the Great War, and only stops when he sacrifices himself to become a Magic Mushroom to Optimus.

Terryman from Kinnikuman would often explain the various attacks and holds used by the characters. His son sometimes takes up the role in Ultimate Muscle, especially on matters of science and technology.

Reversed in Eyeshield 21 in the form of Yamamoto Onihei, ace lineman of the Hashiritani Deers. More than any other player on the sideline, this is Onihei's role, and a running gag is formed around the fact that his analysis has yet to be accurate. It doesn't help that the team he usually tries to predict is one of the most unpredictable teams in the whole of Japan....

Grave-Robber from Repo! The Genetic Opera. His song, "Zydrate Anatomy", introduces himself, Amber Sweet, Blind Mag, some Applied Phlebotinum in the form of zydrate, the veritable epidemic of surgery addiction, and reveals the first of Rotti Largo's many, many plots.
And before that, there's 'Genetic Repo Man' and '21st Century Cure,' both of which go over the basics of the world they live in, explaining the role of Repo Men and some facts about the circumstances that led to the Repo Men coming into existence.

Sailor Moon: Luna and Artemis tended to work as the ones to deliver exposition, but Ami in particular liked to inform them of their situation during battle... as more of a Captain Obvious than anything. Early on, Umino fills this role as well, talking particularly about current events and telltales around the school which usually leads the main characters into their weekly adventure.

Star Trek: The Next Generation:
Data was the main choice for any Technobabble plot exposition, although really nearly any character on the various Star Trek shows was at some time forced into that role.
Once she had been added to the show, Guinan became the mouth through which the writers often introduced backstory information, i.e. about the Q, the Borg, etc.
Usually, Data and Geordi did technical exposition, Worf what another ship is about to do/is doing/did, and Troi the emotional state or motives of whatever grouchy alien they ran into that week. In Real Life, exposition to the CO is what each section is supposed to be doing.
Subverted with Data sometimes in that for a long time, Data did not know when it was appropriate (or not) to do the infodumpage.
Data lampshades this in the second part of the very first episode, While reminding the crew of something they should already know, he interrupts himself to say "I'm sorry, sir — I seem to be commenting on everything."
Avoided entirely with Troi because her empathetic suggestions were universally uselessly vague. (e.g. "Troi, can you tell why they might be shooting laser death missiles at us?" "I sense... Pain. Pain... and anger.")
