* Pinkie Pie in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. She seems to have awareness of the fourth wall, but her friends put this off as "Pinkie just being Pinkie". Also, she frequently abuses ToonPhysics, and appears to be capable of greatly stretching her body, [[RuleOfFunny as long as it's funny]].
** Discord, from the same series, is a milder example. He shows MediumAwareness with his mischief, and may give the odd AsideGlance or two, but never directly breaks the fourth wall.

Pinkie Pie in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Pie. She seems to have awareness of the fourth wall, and has interrupted the IrisOut multiple times and even [[CameraAbuse shaken the camera]], but her friends put this off tend to dismiss her as "Pinkie just being Pinkie". Also, she frequently abuses ToonPhysics, and appears to be capable of greatly stretching her body, [[RuleOfFunny as long as it's funny]].

* In ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', Lala is a very subtle variation: It's a RunningGag that she'll move her [[HeadlessHorseman removable head]] around to make sure that her face isn't blocked by speech bubbles or other characters.

* ''All'' the characters of ''Film/WreckItRalph'' are fourth-wall observers in-universe, as they can literally see the player of their game through either a huge window in the air or a screen on a robot, but one character takes it one step ''further'' for the purpose of ParanoiaFuel: [[spoiler: [[BigBad Turbo]], during his MotiveRant to Vanellope, turns and [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130314212826/wreckitralph/images/1/19/Turbotastic.jpg gives his signature thumbs up to the people watching the movie]] in just one single frame.]]

* ''StrangerThanFiction'' is an interesting variation. The main character can hear the narrator and recognizes a sort of fourth wall, but the narrator is actually someone in his world whose writing dictates his life. In fact, they eventually meet.



* The Graverobber, of ''RepoTheGeneticOpera'', so very much. He speaks directly to the camera on multiple occasions, and even refers to the medium he's in during "Epilogue".
* Boris Yelnikoff from Creator/WoodyAllen's ''WhateverWorks''

* In a Finnish comedy film from the ''UunoTurhapuro'' series, a waiter has been tricked, by two alcoholics, into drinking a full bottle of vodka. Later, when a lady enters the restaurant, and listens to the waiter singing a song, she glances around, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xCfjTjleOo declares]] with an enlightened face: "I see. This must be a Finnish movie. There's no other explanation for the presence of so many drunkards in one scene."

* Gavin Taylore in ''KateModern'' becomes one of these, when he's going crazy. Most memorably when he attempts to [[RageAgainstTheAuthor confront the executive producer of the show]] for making his life hell.

Added DiffLines:

** Comicbook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool is what happens if you let a comicbook nerd loose in the comics she is a fan of. Up to and including narrating her own exploits, identifying (occasionally criticizing) the writers and artists on the book, trying to invoke/exploit tropes and falling on her face when she runs into a subversion.
** Modern Comicbook/{{Loki}} is an interesting case... the jerk will happily tell everybody that he's living story or lecture about the plot. But he's generally a subversion, as his worldview is about the ''gods'' being metafictional in the MarvelUniverse, but from this doesn't leap to the conclusion that the whole universe around him is fiction. Generally.
