* A major part of ''Literature/TheSupervillainySaga.'' The characters live in a CapePunk world and protagonist Gary is a GenreSavvy character who is always trying to figure out which rules from fiction apply and which don't. {{Deconstructed}} a bit as everyone thinks he's ''completely insane'' for this and only the fact he's a BunnyEarsLawyer and NotSoHarmless keeps him alive. TVtropes.org itself gets a few shout-outs in the book.

* Varric does a bit of this in ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]'' when talking to Josephine about what kind of story he would write for the Inquisition. It's especially humorous because the story credits him as its editor.

* In ''Film/KillBill Vol 2.'', when the Bride finally confronts Bill, he monologues about the nature of the SecretIdentity in superhero comics. Bill points out that whereas most heroes have to put on the costume to become their alter egos, since Superman was born as the alien Kal-L, his alter ego is in fact Clark Kent. Bill theorizes that Clark Kent is Superman's critique of humanity, comparing him to the Bride trying to blend in when she was really born to be a killer.

* Done in the PeggySue fic ''FanFic/{{The Second Try}}'' during the post-Third Impact chapters (Examples include AdamAndEvePlot to IHatePastMe) between Shinji and Asuka. Justified, what with both being the only two people left on earth and needing to pass the time.
