** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', the [[PhysicalGod Tribunal deity]] Vivec (cryptically and metaphorically) states in his dialogue and his ''[[InGameNovel 36 Lessons]]'' series that his "godhood" comes from realizing that he was in a video game and using that knowledge to edit the situation around him. He makes vague references to things like the PlayerCharacter ("The ruling king who only he can address as an equal"), pausing the game, console commands, and the Construction Set LevelEditor. His explanation on what happens if he should "die" also sounds a lot like reloading a saved game:

* And yet another SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} entry from SpidermanShatteredDimensions, where he appears as an enemy for Ultimate Spider-Man. He passes comment on the player collecting spider emblems (a gameplay element that none of the other characters acknowledge) and mocks any use of the pause button.

** Later, right before the final boss fight, {{Author Avatar}}s of Creator/TheWachowskis appear to congratulate the player for making it this far and explain that the original ending of ''Film/TheMatrixRevolutions'' where [[spoiler:Neo sacrifices himself to defeat Agent Smith]] would not be appropriate for a video game; instead, you get to fight [[spoiler:an amalgamation of all the Smith clones]] as the final boss fight.

* Near the beginning of ''VideoGame/RandalsMonday'' Randal encounters a crazy bum who keeps insisting he's really a businessman. One of the possible responses is "Look, I hate to burst your bubble, but when I put the cursor over you it says 'bum'."

** Randal makes a few quips directed at the player, questioning why he's even talking to them. This at one point leads to the player's camera trying to pull a ScrewThisImOuttaHere until Randal calls them back. During the ending credits, the HorsemenOfTheApocalypse even riff on the ending and unexpected plot turns, like [[spoiler:Kramer never appearing after the prison chapter and Sally dying.]]

* The ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' game for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis asked the player to "Reset the Computer" to finish the Danger Room level. With no in-game switches or controls to operate, usually the player would be stumped... as it turned out, it meant resetting the game console itself.

*** Claptrap has a justified breakage of the fourth wall when he explains the functionality of his stash.

*** Claptrap has a justified breakage When you gain access to [[BagOfSharing Claptrap's stash]], he attempts to fumble through an awkward InUniverse explanation of the fourth wall when what it does until he explains the functionality of his stash.just matter-of-factly states "Look, it's for [[{{Twinking}} twinking]] items between your characters".

* In ''VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth'', Sion Eltnam from ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'' appears as a GuestCharacter. However, her story mode revolves around the idea of her being a guest character, and how she's showing these industry rookie characters just how tough it really is. She also warns [[TheHero Hyde]] not to smash his controller when she beats him, and suggests that players with a copy of ''Melty'' -REDACTED- play along with this game together (and that those who don't buy a copy). It's a glorious festival of no fourth wall whatsoever.
