* The ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'' anime has done this several times, most notably in episode 79 (a New Year's episode) where Hamtaro and his friends all address the viewer at the beginning before the actual adventure, saying that they'll have more fun adventures in the new year. Hamtaro also looked at an actual script for the show (complete with the Japanese logo) to remember one of his lines in Episode 103 (104 in the original Japanese version). This one was a dream episode, so it didn't happen in reality, but still... The second Japanese opening also features Hamtaro greeting the viewer before the theme starts. The sneak peeks for each episode also kind of count, especially considering Hamtaro and Laura actually can speak to and understand one another while talking about the next episode (Laura can't normally hear Hamtaro speaking in the series, unless it's a dream episode like the previously mentioned one).

** The Buu saga featured a scene where Kuririn realized that the panels showing Goten's and Trunks's FusionDance were being photocopied and criticized robot AkiraToriyama (the series creator) for his laziness. Toriyama even said to his editor that he didn't need to pay him for this page. After that, he disappeared off the face of the Earth. Naturally, this scene isn't in the anime. (Not like Toei doesn't [[StockFootage reuse animation]] or anything...)

* In one episode of ''DNAngel'', the eyecatch typically used before and after commercials is farcically placed at major scene changes as well, prompting Riku and Risa to yell, "Enough already!" after half a dozen appearances.

* ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'' - Subverted/Played with in a InUniverse example, with Haruka mentioning the script during the [[ShowWithinAShow Are we live?]] show and with Ami and Mami commenting about the report during the Ramen segment with Takane.

* ''SonicX'' does it a few times, particularly Charmy finding out what happened when the Chaotix team were away by watching Sonic X on DVD, Eggman becoming the "main character" of the series and renaming the show Eggman X, and Eggman denying Sonic's claim that he (Sonic) is the main character.

* 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.
