* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'''s version of ''Literature/TheLittleMatchGirl'', thanks to the cast deciding to make the story more interesting, involves two {{Magical Girl}}s, one of whom's [[GenderBender an old man]], who set a mansion on fire, then team up with [[UsefulNotes/TheFortySevenRonin Kuranosuke Oishi to fight Kouzuke-no-suke Kira]], who turns out to be a dragon.
* Happens in ''Manga/SketDance'' when the principal asks Sket Dan to prepare a story for his grandson. They start with what is supposed to be a safe game, the classic Japanese tale of Momotaro, but since all of them consider various parts of the story to be anachronistic, implausible or uninteresting to modern audience, they start to introduce various changes in setting, characters and events (often using modern manga tropes) until they end up twisting it into a chaotic mash.

* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' has Hayate tell Nagi a bastardized "Alice in Wonderland" for an anniversary chapter. He begins by telling Nagi (and the readers) that the author hasn't read the story in a long time. We then get Hinagiku as Alice running into the Student Council Trio as [[PlayboyBunny "rabbits"]] and her pitying them for getting stuck on [[FanService cheesecake duty]]. Then she beats the challenge (noted as being a metaphor for success and society) before they even finish explaining it to her. It then wraps up with her single-handedly crushing the card army and taking over Wonderland, renaming it [[Anime/CodeGeass the United States of Japan]].

* David Wiesner's picture book ''The Three Pigs'' starts out as a straightforward telling of "The Three Little Pigs" until the wolf [[BreakingTheFourthWall literally blows the first pig out of the book]], enabling the pig to save the other two pigs and the three of them to enter other stories.

* The children's book ''Beware The Storybook Wolves''. Herb's mother leaves the storybook open when she leaves the room - which allows the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood to join forces with the big bad wolf from The Three Little Pigs. Herb tries to get assistance from the FairyGodmother - but she ends up giving one of the wolves a PimpedOutDress and sending him to the ball (resulting in Cinderella grumpily having a night in). Also features a cameo of the WickedWitch from Sleeping Beauty.

* In ''Series/CSINewYork'' episode The Lady in the Lake, [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Adam]] is telling a story to a witness's kids while they're in the station waiting for their parent. He starts off telling them a story about a Cinderella-esque victim who was found [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin in the lake]] during a ball. The suspects actually line up fairly closely to a PrinceCharming (the victim's wealthy fiance), an EvilSorcerer (her drug-dealer ex who [[spoiler: wasn't so evil after all]]) and a WickedWitch (the fiance's snobbish mother, who [[spoiler: committed the murder]].) Of course, the story is derailed because it's Adam telling it, and he found a piece of a spaceship.

A child has demanded a bedtime story. The storyteller starts into a traditional {{fairy tale|s}}, but the kid insists on [[OffTheRails altering the story]]. As plot points are [[RandomEventsPlot introduced willy-nilly]], the narrative will eventually fall apart.
