* In ''StarWars on Trial'' (a series of essays defending and criticizing the StarWars canon), one of the essays proposed that the GFFA [[note]] Galaxy Far Far Away[[/note]] was a computer simulation, and that those who used the Force were merely exploiting bugs in the code.

* ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'': See film above, but it's more like ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' in that it centers around the DoomedByCanon Programs of Argon City.

* ''Roleplay/DCNation'' had this as a way to explain Jericho's "death." In one of the canonical comics, he possessed a technopathic criminal trying to hurt Raven. Nation explained it as the technopath winning and Jericho getting uploaded to the world's computer networks, endlessly chased by the technopath (in the form of a black lion). When he finally is able to try and contact Oracle, his abilities misfire and pull ''her'' into {{cyberspace}}. Queue Babs realizing she's not confined to a wheelchair here, and is even ''scarier'' as a DigitizedHacker than she was as Batgirl.

Being partially attached means that you "jack in" or otherwise connect, and you then experience whatever the computer system shows you, typically providing audio and visual quality at the maximum of human perception. It might go further and give you taste, touch, smell and more, or as Creator/DennisMiller once put it, "You know, folks, the day an unemployed ironworker can lie in his BarcaLounger with a Foster's in one hand and a channel flicker in the other and fuck [=supermodel=] Claudia Schiffer for $19.95, it's gonna make [[CrackIsCheaper crack]] look like Sanka[[note]]a brand of instant decaffeinated coffee[[/note]]." (More than one sci-fi story has this happen: Humanity dies out because everyone is so busy [[http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/1994-10-14/ having hot virtual sex]] that there's no-one left to make any actual babies.)

* In the ''WebOriginal/SCPFoundation'', SCP-866 is a supercomputer that happens to be much stronger than it should have been, and the Foundation realizes its MundaneUtility as an exceptional way of simulating physics and other properties of the universe. The catch? 20% of its resources (which are in the zettabytes, by the way) go towards four "test worlds." The computer itself probably exists elsewhere in TheMultiverse, with the version built in the 21st century of our world being its vessel, in a way. When a doctor tries to input some programming to shift a city in the second test world slightly, he winds up [[EpicFail sending our version of said city into outer space.]][[note]]Assuming test world #2 isn't our world, which is suggested.[[/note]] Investigation revealed that [[FailedASpotCheck he made a rounding error; the same type of error managed to]] [[DisproportionateRetribution kill the last person who made one.]] Speaking of which, it's also CrazyPrepared to do all sorts of things to the people who try to cut off its power, for obvious reasons.

* G.A. Effinger's book ''Literature/WhenGravityFails'' has a system where people meet in a Virtual Reality system, and can even have sex while in the system, and it's indistinguishable from the real thing. In one case, eight people lie down on the Virtual Reality couches, and only seven get up; one of the visitors figured a way to kill one of the others by causing their "soul" not to go back into the body, but to stay and effectively be purged when the machine was shut down.
