* A scientist in the ''Franchise/StarCraft'' universe holds a theory that they are all nothing but units in a computer game obeying some greater entity's whims. Naturally, she is mocked by everyone else.

* Downplayed with Sardonyx in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': She primarily shows this trope when she's in her personal room, which is set up like a late-night TV talk show. During the episode "Know Your Fusion", she asks the producers if they have to pay Music/NickiMinaj for reusing her voice clips despite her not actually being in the episode and all the clips from previous episodes are captioned "[[https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/steven-universe/images/b/b7/Know_Your_Fusion_223.png/revision/latest?cb=20160816210159 Footage Courtesy of Cartoon Network]]".

** Pinkie Pie graduated from [[MetaGuy Meta Mare]] into this trope as the show went on. She's interrupted the IrisOut multiple times, [[CameraAbuse shaken the camera]], directly addressed the audience, frequently abuses ToonPhysics, and more. Her friends dismiss all her odd behavior her as "Pinkie just being Pinkie", with one episode's moral directly resulting from Twilight deciding to no longer question how the character works. WordOfGod says that Pinkie is allowed to do almost anything [[RuleOfFunny as long as it's funny]].

** Pinkie Pie fell into this trope as the show went on. She seems to have awareness of the fourth wall, has interrupted the IrisOut multiple times and even [[CameraAbuse shaken the camera]], frequently abuses ToonPhysics, and more. Her friends dismiss all her odd behavior her as "Pinkie just being Pinkie", with one episode's moral resulting from Twilight deciding to accept this mentality after failing to discern how Pinkie works. WordOfGod says that Pinkie is allowed to do ''almost'' anything [[RuleOfFunny as long as it's funny]]. As for the character that can do anything...
** Discord, unsurprisingly: he ''is'' a MadGod who's title is "Spirit of Chaos and Disharmony". He often shows MediumAwareness with his mischief, gives the odd AsideGlance or two, and occasionally addresses the audience directly.

** Pinkie 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 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]].
** Discord 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.

* 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".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/MarcoandMarty'' has Puzzle Rat the Puzzle Fink. He only appears to ask the audience to help the Title Characters solve scavenger hunt clues, and refers to himself as a plot convenience. Marco(a cat) finally gets fed up and eats him, leading him to come back as a ghost.

* ''Webcomic/TheBirdFeeder'' has Darryl.
** The [[http://thebirdfeeder.com/characters#item-2 characters page]] states, "He is the only character that actually knows hes in a comic strip."
** In [[http://thebirdfeeder.com/comic/207 #207]], "Vacation" he mentions the fourth wall by name.
** TheRant for [[http://thebirdfeeder.com/comic/399 #399]], "Another Apology," reiterates this point.

* 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. And wait until you see what he gets up to in [[VideoGame/{{Deadpool}} his own video game]]...

* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] in ''VideoGame/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}}.
