Press any key to power cycle the system. If system does not restart, scream at top of lungs and pound on keypad."

* In the final cutscene of ''SonicColors'' the first two lines of hexadecimal code translate exactly to what Yacker was saying. But the additional bit at the bottom display reads, "If you can read this, you are a geek."

* ''TheGuardianLegend'': All of the exposition is given to the player in the form of giant floor monitors.
* ''{{Vexx}}'' has numerous instances of text in the game's {{Fictionary}} slash SubstitutionCipher, Asataran. The longest of these is a very lengthy book title. If you actually take the time to translate it (not easy, since no translation guide is provided with the game manual--you've got to piece it together yourself--and the texture is blurred)--the title of the book turns out to be [[spoiler: "A Lesson in Patience."]]

* In one issue of ''The Batman Strikes!'', the concentrating reader can see that the newspapers lying around Poison Ivy's cell contain a mini-subplot about Harvey Bullock desperately trying to stop Gotham from holding "Riddles About Reptiles Week" and other supervillain-friendly events. In a straighter use of this trope, another newspaper contains excerpts of the issue's script.

* According to the pages of the Japanese report in ''Literature/LifeOfPi'', a major storm was not reported in the area of the ship when it sank. Additionally, the report says the ship sank stern first but the movie portrays it bow first. It can be used to indicate the UnreliableNarrator.
