* ''Creator/{{Toonami}}'' is notable for not just creating a framing device with TOM and the Absolution, but for giving them a pretty extensive backstory and universe to boot. It even ties into the SpaceGhost universe, occasionally.[[note]]Moreover, the SpaceGhostCoastToCoast version of Moltar was the original host, when (in-universe) Toonami originated from Ghost Planet.[[/note]]

* Used in a memorable way as part of a TwistEnding in ''SecondSight'', where the player character, an amnesiac with psychic powers, seems to be having flashbacks to his past self...[[spoiler:until it turns out that the flashbacks were instead in the present day, and everything else was a part of his premonitions of things to come]].

* RobinHobb in her ''Literature/{{Farseer}}'' trilogy uses a framing device of the protagonist writing down his memoirs (which is probably the most common framing device of them all). It's played with a bit: [[spoiler:the narrator makes occasional references implying that he's writing as an old man, housebound by the ravages of age. The end of the last book reveals that he's still quite young; his life has been that rough on him]].

* The story of ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}'' is told mostly from Paulie's point of view as he writes in a diary, but his is not the pure point of view, since we see many things to which he is not privy. Paulie's diary segments are a Framing Device used to introduce the subject of that season's problem.
