* ''TheGoonShow'' did this sort of thing on ''radio'', with characters frequently commenting on the story, insulting the announcer and generally drawing attention to the fact that they are on stage recording a radio show. Furthermore, as Roger Wilmut points out in his book ''The Goon Show Companion'', the characters often make remarks to each other ''in character'' which make it clear that they are already acquainted. In other words, the actors are playing characters who are ''themselves'' playing characters.

* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' was entirely about Animated Actors in their off-screen lives, as well as on-studio. For example, Baby Herman us a hard-drinking, smoking, sexually-harassing animated actor who, because of his looks, played innocent-baby parts. Another notable instance is a scene where the penguins from ''Film/MaryPoppins'' (released a couple decades after the movie is set) work in a bar, implying they had to rely on menial jobs until they got their big break in ''Poppins''.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/ThursdayNext'' books go back and forth; sometimes Thursday enters a book and the events are actually happening, but more often it's all a show put on for the readers.

* ''Franchise/{{LEGO}} Studios'' featured many sets based on filming scenes from famous movies of the time, like ''Film/SpiderMan1'' and ''Film/JurassicParkIII'', although with Creator/StevenSpielberg included as the director and original ''Toys/LEGOAdventurers'' characters replacing the ''JP'' actors. The ''Adventurers'' Johnny Thunder, Pippin Reed and Rex the ''TyrannosaurusRex'' also appeared in their own sets. The web game ''Backlot'', based in this line, was all about helping Johnny and Steven get their movie done, and even had a ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' character, Takua, making a {{cameo}} in the cafeteria, where [[DevelopmentGag his real name was revealed to be George]].

* ''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]].

* In ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory'', [[VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Max]] and [[VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople Strong Bad]] occasionally discuss TelltaleGames, who made episodic adventure games for both franchises (as well as ''Poker Night''); Max is happy with his games, Strong Bad is not. Also played with for the [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Heavy Weapons Guy]], as [[Webcomic/PennyArcade Tycho]] recognizes him as a video game character while the Heavy himself seems to be unaware.
