* Subverted at the end of ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'': We see Phoenix talking to what sounds like the player. [[spoiler: He's actually talking to the members of a jury]].
** However, at the very end of ''Justice for All'', they come very close to doing it--Pearl observes, "This is the first time I get to hear the real you!" The in-game reason is that she's not actually heard him yell "[[CatchPhrase OBJECTION!]]" during a case, but you're encouraged to yell it into your DS microphone, as it's voice activated (You can still just press "A".)
** In ''Justice For All'', examining the patient on crutches in the Hotti Clinic during case 4 prompts "Director Hotti" into talking about how the patient seems to have not even moved since when you were there last. He also states how the man seems to be standing in the same postion all the time referencing the static backgrounds used in the games.



* In ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' hen Monokuma starts expositing on the backstories of the culprit and victim in Chapter 2, he says to hold O (or Ctrl in the PC version) to skip it in case you didn't want to hear all this.



* At the end of the first cast of ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'' before Monokuma explains the killer's story, he says, "for anyone who doesn't really wanna hear it, you can just hit the Ctrl key to fast-forward the text!"

* There was this [[SarcasmMode gem]] from HulkHogan on a November 2010 episode of ''{{TNA}} Re[==]Action'':
--> "Well, brother, we're lightening the load around here. We're trimming the fat. We're thinning the herd. I mean, you know, it's pathetic. It's pathetic, that Dixie would let this company get in the shape it's in. It's her train of thought! Raven? Who hasn't had a damn shower or bath? Y'know, with RVD, and that whole crew out there? They meant to professional wrestling what Hulk Hogan, who sold out Shea Stadium? who put 94,000 people in the Pontiac Silverdome? who slammed a 700-pound giant? They mean to professional wrestling what Hulk Hogan means?
--> "No wonder this company ''was'' in the shape it's in. It's time to get rid o' the trash, the garbage, the worthless piece of crap out here, and we started with Dixie Carter. Yeah, we're gettin' ''very'' real around here. We are so, real, it's unbelievable. Because, if you don't get over like I said, you're fired. If you don't draw number, if you don't entertain, if you don't put asses in seats, if you don't put the coinage in the piggy bank, you're fired. No more games. No more, "[[FourthWall Kayfabe]]." "It's a work." "I've won 34 tag team belts." Who gives a damn how many fake belts you won!? If you don't draw money, you get fired around here. If you don't put asses in seats, you are gone."

* [[DwayneJohnson The Rock]] does this a lot. For example, in reference to the brief Wrestling/JohnCena / Wrestling/ZackRyder / Wrestling/EveTorres love triangle in early 2012, Rock pointed out that Cena is married in real life.

* In ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'' episode 6, Team RWBY is shocked when [[spoiler:Pyrrha, [[SparedByTheAdaptation who was killed off in the main series but is alive here]], shows up with the rest of Team JNPR]]. When Ruby goes to mention it, Nora cuts her off with a rant.
-->'''Nora:''' Nope! Never happened! Everything's FINE! [[spoiler:Pyrrha]]. Is. FINE! And nothing bad. Ever. Happened. ''(Turns to face the viewer.)'' '''''EVERRRR...'''''

* ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' is [[MediumAwareness pretty aware that it's a dating sim]], and a silly one at that. However, the standout moment is the introduction to the sequel ''Holiday Star'', in which Ryouta directly addresses the audience to explain that it takes place on a separate timeline from the original game to [[CuttingOffTheBranches prevent continuity errors]].

"John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme" uses this fairly regularly, especially in the latest episodes. Possibly the most explicit example is in Season 5, Episode 4, where one of the sketches is actor Simon Kane getting increasingly annoyed at actor and writer John Finnemore about the fact that he always plays the discontented characters. During the sketch, he frequently points out that John Finnemore has written all of this, and it isn't even his opinions.
