* This crops up repeatedly in the ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' series ''Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge''. In the ''Dragon Age'' games, Varric often talks about writing his books and is in fact a well-known author, so when he makes remarks in the fic about writing a book about what's happening, it seems like a continuation of that gag. However, it goes beyond this when the reader remembers that Varric is ''credited as the editor of the fanfic.'' Throughout the entire series, Varric inserts repeated [[NoteFromEd editor's notes]] into the narrative; these do everything from explaining things to the reader down to outright scolding the author for something. Since the implication is that he's adding these notes while the story is written, and he's therefore actively involved in deciding what gets included in the story, the instances of him talking about writing the story come across as this.



* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'' features a scene that was not in the book where Faramir captures Frodo and Sam and takes them to Osgiliath with him. While there, Sam looks back on their journey and says "This is all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here".

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

* Late in the 11th and last season of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', some of the gang go to an old drive-in theater and see a Franchise/{{Godzilla}} movie. Cliff notices that the lead actress in this edition of the Godzilla series has been recast. Cue the following bit of dialogue:
--> '''Norm:''' She left halfway through the Godzilla series.\\
'''Woody:''' [[http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1912597_1912596_1912583,00.html I don't understand, why would an actress leave right in the middle of a successful series?]]

* TheStinger at the end of ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' [[spoiler:isn't a preview of the much-anticipated ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' or anything, it's a cheesy PSA like the ones Peter and his classmates watched during the film, in which Captain America appears to discuss the importance of patience even though it isn't always rewarded, [[TakeThatAudience leaving you to wonder why you wasted your time.]] Cap also breaks character and asks someone off-camera "How many more of these?", referencing the sheer number of entries in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.]]

* ''Series/DearWhitePeople'': When Reggie, Joelle, Lionel, and company return from watching a bad movie, they begin ranting about the different ways people of color are typecast and stereotyped in movies while looking directly at the camera. It still sounds natural in context.
