* Abel Nightroad occasionally supplies the odd fourth wall gag in the ''TrinityBlood'' manga, which doesn't take itself as seriously as the original novels and the anime do. He once chastised Esther during chapter six by reminding her that "This is a shoujo manga!", when he thought she was suggesting he was romantically involved with Tres, and he also commented on the romantic tension between Astha and Suleyman during the Queen of the Night arc... by holding up signs to simulate the narration boxes.

* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' usually doesn't do this at all, even in the dub. ''However'', in the dub version of ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' in Yusei's first duel with Kalin, as Yusei is about to land what appears to be a final blow against Kalin, the Dark Signer says, "Oh no! I'm done for!" Then he looks at the TV screen and adds, "But seriously folks," before he activates a card to save himself. (Of course, this has a bit of FridgeBrilliance to it. Since Kalin is clearly AxeCrazy, this may be the same type of MediumAwareness that insanity gives people like SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.

* While generally not appearing in the anime, the manga series for ''TenchiMuyo'' featured quite a few references to episodes of the OVA, as well as Aeka stopping a bit of it by screaming at Ryoko and Washu to, in the English translation, 'stop this Brecht crap!'; the two lackadaisically agree to return to the story.

* ''KeroroGunsou'' has had episodes where the characters have conversations with the narrator. This has also happened in the manga.
