* KenAkamatsu likes doing this. Both ''Manga/LoveHina'' and ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' (''especially'' the [[{{Troperiffic}} latter]]) are veritable hailstorms of lampshades, usually hung by a [[MetaGuy particular character]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'' does quite a fair bit of lampshade hanging. To the point that a late chapter even does a homage of the below example from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' wherein ''actual lampshades'' serve as the catalyst for the story's crowning line of lampshading its whole premise.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' reaches this territory, especially in later seasons. The show has NoFourthWall and frequently cracks jokes about its existence as a NonActorVehicle, [[TheOtherDarrin characters switching actors]], and its use of the ResetButton.

* ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' has a tone closer to an extended episode of ''Freakazoid'' than your average Disney movie. Most blatantly: after our heroes manage to escape Yzma and Kronk in a chase scene, they make it to Yzma's secret lab - only to find Yzma there waiting for them. Kuzco demands to know how she pulled that off.
-->'''Yzma:''' Uh...how ''did'' we, Kronk?\\
'''Kronk:''' Well, ya got me. ''(pulls down chart showing the chase)'' By all accounts, it doesn't make sense.
* ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'': This movie loves to throw in jokes about the fact that it is a musical, the characters will constantly comment how strange it is for them to be singing or even point out how weird the lyrics to the songs they're singing are.

Added DiffLines:

* Artix Entertainment games do this so frequently they have 3 or 4 lampshades to a bulb. Games like ''VideoGame/AdventureQuest'', ''VideoGame/DragonFable'', ''VideoGame/MechQuest'', and ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'' have so many examples of this that they start lampshading how frequently they lampshade.
