* One of the main plot points of ''Anime/PrincessTutu''. [[spoiler: Drosselmeyer was a tragedy-obsessed writer with this power who has is hands cut off when the townsfolk got sick of his "stories", so he wrote one last story in his own blood. Drosselmeyer's decedents also inherit this power, most notably Fakir.]][[/folder]]

* The plot of Yamatogawa's {{Main/doujinshi}} Power Play is about the author of a self-published Main/VisualNovel struggling with women from his past life who have been recast as characters in his latest game. Since all of them have enough mystical power to extinguish his life several times over and three of them vowed to destroy him, he is forced to use his knowledge of their characters to try to reach an accord. Since the whole story is softcore {{Main/hentai}}, there is [[Main/SexGod a certain predictability to his methods]].

* A one-shot ''Comicbook/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|Mirage}}'' comic that was an extended tribute to JackKirby featured Donatello meeting [[{{Tuckerization}} cartoonist named Kirby]] who'd found a magic crystal that, when tied to his pen, [[PaintedTunnelRealTrain allowed anything he drew with it to come to life]]. Donatello and Kirby end up being pulled into Kirby's comic book world, and they get caught up in a battle between Kirby's heroic characters and his evil characters. Kirby helps Donatello and the heroic characters defeat the villains by drawing special weapons for Donatello to use and eventually binding all the villains with specially designed shackles. The story ends with Donatello returning to New York, although Kirby [[IChooseToStay chooses to stay]] so that Don can return and gives him a sketch as a parting gift.

* Parodied to confusing and hilarious effect in the ''GoonShow'' episode "Six Charlies in Search of an Author". ("Ten pounds, Neddie, to be paid in money before Chapter Ten! And don't try to slip past us, Neddie, because we have an armed man in the index!")

* As the [[AuthorAvatar AuthorAvatars]], Kingwerewolf and Brogalio have control over ''Webcomic/NintendoAcres'' but purposely restrict their direct involvement so the characters don't get lazy.

* 1991 short ''WesternAnimation/{{Manipulation}}'' has a similar premise to ''Duck Amuck'', only in this one it's a live-action animator screwing with the cartoon man the animator drew on the page, doing things like blurring the cartoon man's face or stretching out his arms to an absurd length.

* In one ArchieComics story, Reggie sends the writer on vacation and writes a story in which Jughead suffers the worst day of his life. On the last page, Jughead sends the story's artist on vacation and draws his ''own'' ending where he gets revenge on Reggie.
* ComicBook/{{Fables}} has a variation on this; the various fairy tale characters living in the mundane world are aware of the stories about them right from the start, but are unsure as to the exact relationship between the stories and their own existence. The spin-off "Jack of Fables" introduces the Literals, who are {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of literary concepts (such as genres, the DeusExMachina, the idea of [[{{Bowdlerise}} bowdlerisation]] etc.) and this includes Kevin Thorn, the actual writer. [[CrisisCrossover The Great Fables Crossover]] has them having to deal with his omnipotent RewritingReality powers and his view that the world (both the fairy tale homelands and the supposedly "real" mundane world) is ''his'' story that has gotten out of hand and needs to be [[RetGone erased]] so he can write a better story in its place.
