* 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 ''Disney/BigHero6'', when the characters are wondering who the masked villain really is, Fred passes out various ComicBooks and points out that the villains are all traditionally {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s, to suggest that Alistair Krei is the BigBad. [[spoiler:He's wrong. It's actually the father-substitute EvilMentor. Who was supposed to be dead at the time, so it's a reasonable mistake.]]

* It's possible to do this without LampshadeHanging and still accidentally discuss your own story. In a {{thriller}} novel entitled ''Beauty'', the love interest talks about how all the fish in her fish tank were chosen because they reminded her of characters in a book, then adds that she originally planned to use fish for {{Lolita}} and Humbert Humbert but changed her mind. The hero goes into an aside about how ''{{Lolita}}'' is his favorite book, because of its skillful use of an UnreliableNarrator who seems nice at first but is in fact evil. Said "hero" is a plastic surgeon trying to sculpt the perfect face, so you can guess where this is going.

* ''Anime/WelcomeToTheNHK'' has a lot of conversations like this between Yamazaki and Sato, since they're trying to make a HGame together and Sato isn't an otaku like Yamazaki. For example, one scene has Yamazaki scolding Sato for trying to write the main heroine like a realistic girl, and then discussing the "patterns" found in games like {{Victorious Childhood Friend}}s, {{Meido}}s and {{Robot Girl}}s, explaining that these all work because [[ShallowLoveInterest she has no ulterior motive and simply is devoted to serving the protagonist]]. These conversations also serve to set up Sato thinking of Misaki as something of a soft-spoken ManicPixieDreamGirl, which gets {{deconstructed}} as the series continues.
