* ''WebVideo/KateModern'' comes dangerously close to breaking the fourth wall on a number of occasions, always with some in-universe justification (however flimsy). They finally break it directly in "The Last Work", when Tez, after talking to an off-screen Meryl, turns to the camera and says, "She should get her own show, that one." This was also a direct ShoutOut to the fanbase, as the concept of a SpinOff called "[=MerylModern=]" was a popular fan in-joke. Of course, ''[=KateModern=]'' never had a FourthWall in the traditional sense, because while the characters aren't aware that they are fictional, they are [[NoFourthWall always aware of the audience and address them frequently]]. The fictional "fan" Sophie, in particular, broke the fourth wall repeatedly on her Bebo profile.



* [[https://ramblingsofastarvingwriter.wordpress.com/2014/09/05/I-love-you-but-youre-real-a-poem/ This]] poem, titled ''I Love You But You're Real''.
* Certain characters in Literature/StarHarborNights are "meta-aware", notably the Hex Kittens and the inhabitants of the Sands of Time, the local InnBetweenTheWorlds. Most often used for LampshadeHanging.
** The chapter [[http://www.starharbornights.com/new/3 Super Vision]] {{Lampshades}} this when Johnny Dark cautions Maria not to [[FridgeLogic overthink]] the nature of the Sands, because it makes the author irritable. Later, Tigerlily Bender seems to fall afoul of this same phenomenon.
* In the ''Fanfic/AntiClicheAndMarySueEliminationSociety''[='=]s base of operations, there is an actual fourth wall that makes a tremor when broken. Also notable is the fact that Tyler will frequently [[InteractiveNarrator have arguments with the narrator]].



* This was a prominent running gag in "Roleplay/WeAreOurAvatars", where characters like Bass, Deadpool, Bernkastel, "Raven", among others, would refer to the readers and the people reading, but, the gag was done to death and it's since been downplayed. It got to the point where @/{{Etheru}} retconned the ability out of Bass because of [[OverusedRunningGag annoyance with the gag]].

* ''[[http://youtu.be/Ff2QRD3nIXo Brawl of the Objects]]'':
** In the ColdOpening to episode 5, Boat is attempting to speak French with Baguette using the dictionary he purchased in a previous episode. Once Boat asked Baguette to repeat what he had just said, Baguette asked Boat if he couldn't see the subtitles. At which point the subtitles ''themselves'' address Boat. After witnessing Baguette getting hugged by the subtitles, Boat proceeds to break a wall labelled 4.
** Becomes a BrickJoke in TheStinger. When Boom Box mentions how some of the characters there (him, Party Hat and Shieldy) were recommended characters and Party Hat agrees (while looking at the screen to boot), Boat once again breaks the same wall.
* In an episode of ''WebAnimation/DaAmazinOTAdvenchr'', Deine called the show itself crap when it started "evolving".
* LetsPlay/TacoMan frequently references his cartoon state.
* ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'':
** In episode 6, Team RWBY is shocked when [[spoiler:Pyrrha, [[SparedByTheAdaptation who was killed off in the main series but is alive here]], shows up with the rest of Team JNPR]]. When Ruby goes to mention it, Nora cuts her off with a rant.
--->'''Nora:''' Nope! Never happened! Everything's FINE! [[spoiler:Pyrrha]]. Is. FINE! And nothing bad. Ever. Happened. ''(Turns to face the viewer.)'' '''''EVERRRR...'''''
** Episode 23 goes completely and utterly nuts with this trope as Nora downs an entire pot of coffee and ends up travelling through various dimensions she ends up in ''the real world''. She's brought back to "relative" normal when her voice actress drinks coffee.
* ''WebAnimation/EVTVWeather'' has a few occasional 4th wall breaks. Along with the character of Maggot Man, who serves as a pseudo-narrator.
* ''WebAnimation/DaAmazinOTAdvenchr'' does this occasionally.
** In sooper appisote 3, the ''entire series’ font'' gets changed midway through the sooper appisote, due to someone pressing a button that said "CHANGE FONT".
** And in A.18, Liteslayer and Deine indirectly break the fourth wall by acknowledging the live “evolution” happening to them. It starts by a text-to-speech-translator, getting colored, then spelling properly, then so on and so forth until [[spoiler:Lite kills himself to stop any more "evolution" from happening]].
* The fourth wall is broken continuously in the ''WebAnimation/AlfredsPlayhouse'' series. Alfred address the audience as "boys and girls" and in the movie, Dictator Pickles personally introduces Alfred to the audience.
* The eponymous Emperor of ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' breaks the wall oftentimes, from lamenting that he can't make any more [[LampshadeHanging fourth-wall-breaking jokes]] anymore to commenting on the new opening the series gets in episode 12.
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' does this, particularly in the "Virus" Strong Bad e-mail where the format of the web page gets tampered with. Also, "My mouth was a broken JPEG!" Happens literally in some of the iTunes openings, where Strong Bad will either press his face against the screen, leaving a print, or literally try to break your screen!
* At one point in a ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' interactive minigame, a character is killed when they're ''crushed against'' the fourth wall.
* In ''WebAnimation/GEOWeasel'', the fourth wall is broken enough that Mitri complains about Nar breaking the fourth wall, and Nar retorts that pointing it out would also be, as he says, self-referencing.

* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, the Monkey King is a godlike being who apparently has this as a power. In his own point of view short story, he repeatedly addresses the readers and even makes comments about some of the forum posters.



* In one of the Soul Pancake video "Unexpected Visitor" the intruder tells the guy, and atheist he is God, the guy says "you just lost me" to which God says "that's okay, we probably just lost about Half our audience." then looks and winks at the camera.
* This trope's the very first trope discussed on ''Podcast/OnTheTropes''.



* ''Wiki/TVTropes'':
** An editor of the site will often introduce themselves as "ThisTroper". This is frowned upon for examples. So are DarthWiki/ThatTroper and SugarWiki/TheOtherTroper.
** There are a handful of articles that make a point of addressing the reader directly, such as BigBrotherIsWatchingYou.



* ''Literature/TheLastGeneration'' runs over the fourth wall with a bulldozer and then pees on its remains. After hopping through several worlds across the Multiverse Inna, the main character finally reaches [[spoiler:our own, where she meets her creator, who proceeds to explain that she's just a character in a roleplaying forum whose uniqueness is the result of several {{retcon}}s, and the reason her world is being destroyed is that the forum has closed down due to inactivity.]]

* In Blog/AskKingSombra: Being that it's an ask blog, naturally, the characters respond to fan comments. It's a bit zigzaggy on whether other characters realize that that's what they're doing though.
** Sombra is actually able to physically interact with the question boxes; at one point he tries to hide behind them, only to realize they aren't actually real.
** At one point the author tries to derail the comic into a shipping fic, so Sombra and Coffee Talk open a portal and give his AuthorAvatar a DeathGlare to make him get back on track.
