* ''Manga/BlackButler'' did an OVA about this trope for the release of the BaseBreaker sequel, which can be seen as SelfDeprecation due to the tongue-in-cheek way it pokes fun at the series. In it, minor characters from the first season return in roles as crew members, and the format of having the actors be completely different from their character is played with; while Ciel and Sebastian have essentially the same personalities as their characters, the mute Tonchinkan are played by a cheerful and talkative actor, and the quiet [[spoiler:BigBad]] is played as a bitchy diva who doesn't want to be there. The OVA ends with a trailer to the second season, beginning with scenes that didn't happen, and ending with scenes that completely [[GenreBusting throw a wrench in the format of the series]].

-->'''Haruko:''' You can get cramps from that, you know?
-->'''Naota:''' What? I thought it was a special effect! You're doing the slow motion?
