* There exists a genre in fanfiction where a writer will take an animated show and create a series of fake bloopers and behind-the-scenes stuff for it, treating the characters as actual actors. More often than not, HilarityEnsues. Examples include ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12430115/1/ From the Top]]'' (for ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender''), ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12800376/1/CUT CUT!]]'' (for ''WesternAnimation/{{Detentionaire}}''), and ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8089271/1/Phineas-and-Ferb-Take-Two Phineas and Ferb: Take Two!]]'' (for...well, [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb guess]]).

* ''Manga/BlackButler'' did an OVA about this trope for the release of the 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]].

* Parodied and {{subverted|Trope}}, like [[DeconstructorFleet everything else]] in the first after game Tea Party of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', the spiritual sequel of the above. After the series of grisly murders and the bad ending, Battler finds himself completely confused and sitting around with the other murder victims, who are cheerfully having tea and snacks, complaining about how they died, and insisting on how [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane the Witch killed them]]. [[spoiler: Battler refuses to believe in this conclusion, all the victims rapidly revert back to their state of death, the witch Beatrice reveals herself, and whisks Battler away to Purgatorio, where the two begin their logic battles that sets off the remaining episodes.]]

* ''Webcomic/MSPaintMasterpieces'' uses this in [[NoFourthWall Fourth Wall breaking]] fillers with [=DisgruntledFerret=] interacting with the cast. Hilariously done with Metal Man [[spoiler: [[HostileShowTakeover taking over the strip]] from [=DisgruntledFerret=]]] in a massive show of hubris.

** "The King of Town" and "The Yello Dello" have commentary tracks by the characters, implying that the events are fictional and that they were acting (albeit [[AsHimself as themselves]].)
** In the Strong Bad Email "original," not only are the characters implied to be actors but Strong Bad claims they are frequently [[ActorSwap replaced]]. He reminisces about the "original Bubs," a [[TheOtherDarrin clearly-different]] animated character playing the "role" of Bubs. However by the end of the toon, the trope is [[DefiedTrope defied]]; Bubs arrives and claims Strong Bad is lying and that ''he'' is the original, one-and-only Bubs (and presumably not an actor).

* In fact, this trope is quite common in WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fan fiction and fan art. The fact that several of the writers and animators have well known ponysonas (one of whom actually [[CreatorCameo appeared in an episode]]) only makes it easier.
* The {{Doorstopper}} {{Animaniacs}} fanfiction ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3703685/1/Family Family]]'', by the 'Middle Warner Sibling', takes place in this universe, as we follow the Warner siblings from their poverty-stricken beginnings to how they were hired by Warner Bros. for their respective parts and beyond.
