* The ''ComicBook/DoctorWhoTitan'' comics have a couple of examples:
** The section of the Eleventh Doctor Year Two series that returns to the setting of the cancelled TV story "Shada" includes many metafictional in-jokes about the story's unfinished nature and ambiguous canonicity.
** In the Ninth Doctor story "Doctormania", the fake "Doctor Who" has a companion called Penny, who shares a name with a never-was companion who Creator/RussellTDavies conceived for Series Four in case Katherine Tate was unable to commit to a regular role as Donna.

** The Doctor's scoffing "You watch too much TV" when Martha asks if the Master is his secret brother in "The Sound of Drums" may be an insult directed at controversial early plans for what became ''Doctor Who: The Movie'' to be a full ContinuityReboot, which would have included that as a plot element.

** The original game intended to be ''Final Fantasy VII'', the one set in New York and featuring a detective, was scrapped when ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' required help in development. Cloud and Barret were designed as GoldfishPoopGang characters on this game, but seemed striking enough to the team that a new project was launched using them as main characters.

** The films started out of Creator/StevenSpielberg's interest in making a Creator/JamesBond film, but being turned down by then-executive producer Albert R. Broccoli. In the opening of ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'', Indy's origins as a Bond {{expy}} are depicted as he's dressed similarly to Creator/SeanConnery's Bond in ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''. And then, in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', Sean Connery himself played Indy's father Henry Sr., because both Spielberg and Creator/GeorgeLucas thought the only man who could play Indy's father was James Bond. Thus, making Bond, in every sense of the word, ''the'' father of Indiana Jones.
