* The main character in ''Series/{{Fleabag}}'' makes comments and looks to camera all the time, of which the other characters are unaware. This takes a dark turn in the final episode when she realises that she can't turn it off and we're still watching as she has her breakdown.

* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] in ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' is at least a minor example. One of his victory quotes is [[ThemeTuneCameo humming the famous victory tune]], and he [[AsideGlance briefly looks at the camera]] and addresses the audience in at least one {{cutscene}}.

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed with Sardonyx in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': She primarily shows this trope when she's in her room, which is set up like a TV talk show. During the episode in which it's showcased, she does things like ask if they have to pay Music/NickiMinaj for using her voice clips despite her not actually being in the episode and showcasing clips from previous episodes captioned "Footage Courtesy of Cartoon Network".

** ''ComicBook/AmbushBug'' is another example from TheDCU. He and ComicBook/SquirrelGirl are sort of like both {{Distaff Counterpart}}s and [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent alternates of each other.]]

As you can probably guess, this trope is about that one guy in the group who knows [[MediumAwareness his life takes place behind a TV screen]], [[RageAgainstTheAuthor knows that he's being written by someone]], or can see the little effects that happen all around him. Usually, his friends dismiss him [[TheDitz as being completely]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} off his rocker]], though to be fair [[PowerBornOfMadness he probably is]]. If it's a villain, expect him to be DangerouslyGenreSavvy.

** And of the DangerouslyGenreSavvy villain category, there is the Purple Man (at least in his Alias appearences).

* Ferris Bueller from ''FerrisBuellersDayOff'' regularly comments directly to the audience about the film's plot, about the other characters, about being in High School, and so on. At the end of the film, after the credits, he even says to the audience, "You're still here? It's over! Go home! Go."

* Ajimu of ''Manga/MedakaBox'' is fully aware she's in a manga and even tries to end it before the beginning of the anime adaptation by defeating the main character with another supporting character. Everyone just thinks she's crazy. Kumagawa seems like this, but he has simply read a ton of manga himself.

* Ajimu of ''Manga/MedakaBox'' is fully aware she's in a manga and even tries to end it before the beginning of the anime adaptation by defeating manga, saying that fighting Medaka head-on would be pointless since she's the main character with another supporting character. Everyone just thinks and thus will always win in the end. Her ultimate goal seems to be ending the manga before the AnimatedAdaptation airs, and her plan for doing so involves dethroning Medaka and instating a new protagonist. [[spoiler:It's ultimately subverted: she isn't ''truly'' aware that she's crazy. a character in a manga, she just very strongly believes it because reality seems to follow the same kind of "narrative" as a ''Magazine/ShonenJump'' manga. She wants to defeat Medaka so she can accomplish something that breaks the narrative, allowing her to commit a SeenItAllSuicide. Medaka does lose her main character status, but [[InterruptedSuicide prevents the suicide]] and challenges Ajimu to really do the impossible by defying her "role" and finding her own path in life.]] Additionally, she [[TheCameo cameos]] in the last episode of the anime and speaks directly to the audience, explaining that the episode will be covering sidestory material since the story left off in a place that couldn't be turned into a satisfying ending.

Kumagawa seems like this, but he has simply in reality he's just read a ton lot of ''Shonen Jump'' manga himself.and sees reality in terms of tropes and clichés.

** A similar thing happens with Bromosel in ''BoredOfTheRings'', after it has been foretold that he'll die sometime "around page eighty-eight." None of the others seem to understand this, but whenever they get into dangerous situations, Bromosel is mentioned as taking a quick glance at the page number.
