* In one scene from ''DeadLikeMe'', George, the viewpoint character for the series, informs her fellows of the roles they play in the [[{{Ensembles}} ensemble cast]]. Later in the episode, the oldest and wisest of the troupe casually "breaks trope", much to George's surprise.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Dollhouse}}'' features an episode where the B plot has Topher programming one of the Dolls to be an [[IJustWantToHaveFriends ideal best friend]] for himself so he can have a day of [[WishFulfillment perfect geeky socialization]] on his birthday. Since he programs her to be a geek, there winds up being a scene where they're playing video games and talking about ScienceFiction tropes; among other things, they come to a mild friendly disagreement over whether {{Green Skinned Space Babe}}s are a hideously stupid {{cliche}} or not (he claims that she's just dissing "good art").

** In "200," she calls ''[[ShowWithinAShow Wormhole X-Treme!]]'' creator Martin Lloyd on a particularly absurd use of UnrealisticBlackHole.

** In "200," she calls ''[[ShowWithinAShow Wormhole X-Treme!]]'' creator Martin Lloyd on a particularly absurd use of UnrealisticBlackHole. In fact, because the FramingDevice for the {{Troperiffic}} episode in question is a discussion with him about how the hell he can adapt ''Wormhole X-Treme!'' into a [[TheMovie feature film]] (in what WordOfGod says is a nod to ''{{Firefly}}'' and its sequel film), there's plenty of other references too, such as Martin explaining that [[TropesAreTools it's okay to skip over how the heroes actually transitioned from one scene to the next so that you can move on with the plot]], so long as you give a quick nod to it in the dialogue with them acknowledging how "convenient" their escape had been; he even goes so far as to accurately define the practice out loud as "[[LampshadeHanging Hanging a Lantern On It]]". Heck, the episode as a whole includes so many [[AffectionateParody Affectionate Parodies]] of other works generated by the team's competing ideas about how he could do it that it's almost harder to find a moment in the episode that ''doesn't'' include Conversational Troping. Those are just the most notable examples.

* ''Film/StandByMe'' has the characters talk about [[FurryConfusion what Goofy is]] and whether or not [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny Mighty Mouse could beat Superman.]]
* ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'' prominently features this as the ending reveals that [[spoiler: there are evil Gods forcing people to invoke tropes or else they'll destroy the world.]]

* Occurs in Series H "History" on ''{{QI}}'' with Stephen, Alan, David Mitchell, Sandi Toksvig, and Rob Brydon digitally edited into a photo of a combat squad. David (whose face was in a somewhat goofy expression) mused that he would be [[{{Redshirt}} killed off early]], while Sandi supposed she would be the woman brought along [[MissionControl just to work the radio]], but gets [[ActionSurvivor forced into flying a plane]]. Stephen would be [[ShellshockedVeteran the hero]] [[OldSoldier from]] the First World War, Rob gets [[{{Retirony}}killed off right before the end]] (just when you think he'll make it), and Alan [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OFXL0jIMR4 survives the whole thing.]]
