* In ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'', a mysterious voice turns Max into a FourthWallObserver. During one of Max's hallucinations on the drug V, he is told by a letter (heavily implied to be from his dead wife, Michelle) that he is in a graphic novel (what the cutscenes are presented as). He instantly relizes that his life is all fragmented still shots and the fact that he can see his thoughts and words hanging in thought/speech bubbles in the air. Another letter then tells him that he's in a computer game. Once again, he instantly sees "weapon statistics hanging in the air, endless repetition of the act of shooting, time slowing down to show off my moves. The paranoid feeling of someone controlling my every step."

Added DiffLines:

* The Terror Mask in the ''VideoGame/{{Splatterhouse}}'' remake is quite aware that it is in a video game, noting some of the things that Rick does is why the game has an M-rating, that he was originally going to be a VillainProtagonist, and occasionally telling the player to hurry up and click continue on the game over screen. Even when it delivers the TitleDrop, it's done in a blatantly BreakingTheFourthWall way:
--> ''Show him why we call it... 'SPLATTERHOUSE'.''

Added DiffLines:

* Tiernan in ''Webcomic/LeifAndThorn'' sometimes [[http://leifandthorn.com/comic/family-dinner-614/ thinks about reader reactions]]. She doesn't tell the other characters, since she's a cat and can't talk.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' fanfic, ''Shard'', minor OC character Zek often makes comments that indicates that he is somewhat aware that he is in a story. He also nicknames many of the characters after the people they allude to. Such as Yang being Goldilocks. Lampshaded further by the fact that he can't come up with a nickname for major OC character Aero, who is his best friend.

* Like his original comic book self, the star of ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' is constantly breaking the fourth wall, commenting on everything from [[Creator/RyanReynolds his own actor]] to the film's budget. He even makes fun of ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''[[note]]Which was infamous for, among other things, its InNameOnly rendition of Deadpool[[/note]].

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} carries his MediumAwareness into video games with him. You fight him in ''MarvelUltimateAlliance 2'' because he declares that it's time for an "obligatory [[MiniBoss mini-boss]] fight". In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' he [[{{Nerdgasm}} geeks out]] over meeting ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' characters (and thinks that [=KOing=] them means he gets the cover of ''Street Fighter V''), makes "[[VideoGame/XMen Welcome to Die]]!" and "[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 Curleh mustache]]" jokes upon seeing Magneto, criticizes [[VideoGame/BionicCommando Spencer's]] [[YouDontLookLikeYou redesign]], beats opponents with their own health bars, grabs the camera to address the player... long story short, he knows he's in a video game.

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