* A bit of an inversion in ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'': during a scene in the second-season episode "L is for Loser", the girls wonder aloud why the Knights of Destruction have been able to feed off of their negative emotions, and why Cornelia hasn't been affected. Cornelia responds matter-of-factly with "I'm the only one here who's not starring in a soap opera". Her voice actress, Christel Khalil, plays Lily on ''The Young And The Restless'', and ''is'' the only one of the five main voice actresses who is in fact starring in a soap opera. The girls lampshade this by saying "This week".

** When Ratchet says Wreck-Gar wouldn't dare do something really, ''really'' moronic, he replied "I am Wreck-Gar. I ''dare'' to be stupid!", referencing his voice actor Weird Al Yankovic's song "Dare to be Stupid". This also counts as a MythologyGag as it was the Junkions' theme (the Junkions being lead by Wreck-Gar) in [[TheMovie the G1 movie]]. Another happens in "Human Error, Part 2", where he briefly tries to fight Soundwave with an accordion, an instrument Weird Al often uses.

** In the final season finale, Optimus dons a new jetpack in order to fly and be able to fight Decepticons more evenly. Upon takeoff he shouts ''Excellent!! YEEEESSSSS!!'', two words frequently pronounced by the Beast Wars Megatron. Both were voiced by David Kaye.

** A rather obscure one: Ben Tennyson exclaims in one episode: "How stupid do you think I am?", a line uttered by Terrence of ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' no less than 2 years beforehand. Both characters are voiced by TaraStrong.
** Another episode where Ben and Gwen are [[TrappedInTVLand drawn into a video game]] involves a scene where Grandpa Max notices that their game console has been left on, and drops into a deeper voice to complain, "I thought I told you to ''turn the game console off''!" If you've played ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 2|SonsOfLiberty}}'' to the ending, you will likely ''void your bowels'' at this exact moment - Paul Eiding plays both Grandpa Max and Colonel Campbell, and towards the end of ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 2|SonsOfLiberty}}'', the game abruptly shifts into a NoFourthWall horror game. At the start of this downwards slide, the Colonel shouts at Raiden to "turn the game console off!"

* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' managed to combine this with TalkingToHimself. Fred Tasticore plays both the Comicbook/IncredibleHulk (reprising the role from... practically everything the Hulk has been in since 2003) and Graviton. Then Graviton lets loose one of Hulk's {{catchphrase}}s:
