** "Operation Hear No Evil" had a sly one with Mordecai and Rigby getting hooked on a TV Show called Lazer Hunters which Muscle Man tells them has ran for eight seasons and is currently on it's last one about a week before it's final episode. Incidentally ''Regular Show'' was an eight season runner and closing in pretty fast on their finale as well.
** The episode "Meet the Seer" has the characters going to Planet Neilsen[[note]]a blatant reference to the media company that measures television viewership data[[/note]] to meet the titular seer, a being that watches the events which occur in all universes, and who refers to the adventures of the Park Crew as if they were episodes in a television series. In fact, her room is filled with television screens playing various episodes of the show, the intro sting included, and she spends the remainder of the episode mentioning the show's tropes, [[GrowingTheBeard its changing]] [[SeasonalRot quality over]] [[WinBackTheCrowd the years]], [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome audience]] [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments reception]] [[TearJerker to some storylines]] like Mordecai's romance troubles, and how all shows must eventually end.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' had an interesting spin on this with "Mitefall", where [[GreatGazoo Bat-Mite]] is tired of the show and desires a DarkerAndEdgier ''Batman'' series, and thus tries to get the show cancelled by making it [[JumpingTheShark jump the shark]]. Meanwhile, ComicBook/AmbushBug tries to stop him by alerting Batman of both of his existence as a fictional character and of Bat-Mite's plot. Ultimately, Bat-Mite ends up succeeding in cancelling the series, [[ProductionForeshadowing replacing it with a more serious CGI cartoon]], only for Ambush Bug to pop in and remind him that he's also a fictional character and that cancelling the show has erased his own existence, as a more serious Batman show has no room for FourthWallObservers like them. The episode ends with all the characters that have appeared over the cartoon's run, now aware that this is the final episode of a television show, having a farewell party in the Bat-Cave.

** An episode, "The Discount of Monte Cristo", predicted the reason the show ended. The episode is all about Aloysius cutting the show's budget In the episode, Orson hated Aloysius ruining the story by firing people who made the show in order to keep the show's budget low. The reason for ''Garfield and Friends''[='=] cancellation is that CBS wanted budget cuts for the show, and the show's creators refused to let the show suffer the budget cuts.

* ''[[ComicBook/MegaMan Archie's Mega Man]]'' last issue was #55 before "going into hiatus" and ended with Dr. Light receiving a shock from a device he was having Time Man help him with. He sees visions of everything that will happen to Mega Man from adaptations of the 4th game onward, ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX Mega Man X]]'', ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]], ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZX ZX]], and ''[[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Legends]]'' before eventually being brought out of it, ensured that Mega Man, no matter what generation, will keep fighting the good fight. The issue ended with a full page Short Circuit comic (usually reserved for silly quick gags) which had Mega Man, his friends and villains singing "We'll Meet Again" even including other incarnations such as Bad Art Mega Man featured in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken Street Fighter x Tekken]]'', [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan the 90's Mega Man cartoon]], European covers of Mega Men, and even his version from ''[[WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster Captain N]]''. Closing out with thanks to the viewers for reading, Rock Volnutt still complaining about being stuck on the moon and the classic death explosion.

A specific type of MediumAwareness, where the impeding end of the series is referenced within the show itself. Such events generally happen on the GrandFinale. Depending on the series, this may be done in the form of events in the final batch of episodes having a double meaning that alludes to an ending of some kind or characters directly BreakingTheFourthWall. If NoOntologicalInertia comes into play - and the characters are aware of this - the finale is often treated as a Class X-4 ApocalypseHow, with at least one character flying into a panic.
