*** In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', there's a campaign going on to try and combat against false evidence and false charges in the legal system. This campaign includes at least two stuffed animal mascots, a elephant-judge called "Phony Phanty" and Rhino-lawyer called "Bum Rap Rhiny". This fact ends up strangely becoming important during the Juniper Wood's bombing trial, at which point Phoenix thinks to himself, "[[Franchise/AceAttorney Who knew the legal world could inspire a whole line of merchandise?]]".

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTriforceHeroes'' has Mr. Tudor, who explains the game's Hero Tokens system. It serves as a reward for good online behaviour, but Tudor explains it in terms of not being like 'false heroes' who '[[RageQuit refuse to see things through]]'.

M'aiq is a known a FourthWallObserver to changes between games the point of leaning on it (and sometimes outright ''[[BreakingTheFourthWall breaking it]]'') who [[AuthorAvatar voices the opinions]] of the series' creators and developers, largely in the series form of {{Take That}}s, to both the [[TakeThatAudience audience]] (given the ''ES'' UnpleasableFanbase) and other meta-jokes.isn't above above [[SelfDeprecation taking some]] at [[TakeThatUs Bethesda itself]]. His "meta" dialogue understandably doesn't make any sense from an in-universe perspective and justifiably makes him seem [[CloudCuckoolander very detached from the game world]].

* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', the line "This isn't that kind of movie" is actually a call-back to an earlier conversation between Galahad and Valentine, but given the context (Valentine's intentional LampshadeHanging of BondVillainStupidity), it really does smack heavily of this.

* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', the line Galahad and Valentine discuss Bond movies (not by name). [[spoiler:Valentine clearly catches on to Harry's cover, and when he confronts Galahad later, Valentine says it's like a scene in a Bond movie (not by name), where [[BondVillainStupidity he explains his plan, then comes up with some absurd deathtrap and Galahad escapes]]. Galahad says it sounds good. Valentine just says "This isn't that kind of movie" is actually a call-back to an earlier conversation between Galahad and shoots him in the head. At the climax, where Eggsy kills Valentine, but given the context (Valentine's intentional LampshadeHanging of BondVillainStupidity), it really does smack heavily of this.Valentine asks him if he's going to come up with a BondOneLiner (not by name). Eggsy just says "It's like you said to Harry; [[CallBack this ain't that kinda movie]]."]]

* The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' films:
** ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' was the final film to feature the entire ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' cast, who were well aware of it, showing throughout the movie. In the last scene, when the USS ''Excelsior'', now under the command of Sulu, departs, Chekov says "So, this is goodbye...".

** ''[[ComicBook/DCRebirth DC Universe: Rebirth]]'' #1 is basically an entire ''issue'' of this. The original Wally West is revealed to be alive and basically serves as Geoff Johns' (and the majority of DC's readership's) avatar as he laments what has been lost in the New 52 universe, from legacy to love. In what seemed like it would be a TakeThat, Wally starts to dissipate into the Speed Force and resolves to "let the past go", as he says goodbye to Barry... only for Barry to save him, and for Wally and Barry to try to find the culprit that rebooted the universe into a dark and cynical place (out of universe, Geoff Johns himself actually ''wrote'' the story that did that). It's revealed to be Doctor Manhattan, who basically serves as ''Watchmen'''s representative (as well as Dan [=DiDio=]'s. So basically Johns is saying that Watchmen and [=DiDio=] caused the universe to reboot, and for love and legacy to go missing. Further into the relaunch, Wally would repeatedly refer to the timeline as having been "edited", another jab at [=DiDio=].

** Later in that same series, Barry and Wally II have a brief talk where Wally II asks Barry what's up with Wally, and if they will ever discuss it. Of course, this is something readers have been asking DC's writers and editors since the Wallys' brief meeting, and has been skirted around for basically the entire Rebirth relaunch. [[AuthorAvatar Barry]] tells [[AudienceSurrogate Wally II]] to be patient and that they'll get to it eventually.

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E9NightTerrors]]" the parent of George mentions that he had been scared of something that he had seen on the television, and that it had prompted them to turn if off. Instinctively, the Doctor responds "Oh, you don't want to do that." This is likely a reference to the scandals which took place in the 1980s over if ''Doctor Who'' was too scary to be viewed by children. The producers of the show very much took up the policy that it was fine to scare the young viewers, as long as they didn't attach that fear to anything grounded in the real world.
