* Likewise it's been suggested several times that Literature/NeroWolfe was a real person and Archie Goodwin was making cash on the side by selling their case records to Rex Stout (and the reason why [[AlwaysMurder Wolfe only seems to solve murders]] is because they sell better than plain old theft or corruption). This is especially appropriate since Wolfe was allegedly inspired by Sherlock Holmes and has been accused of being related to him in some way (either his actual son by Irene Adler or as his nephew by his brother Mycroft, who Wolfe greatly resembles).

* The storyteller from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' is all but stated to be Phil Foglio, and the series is him re-telling what he knows of Agatha's rise to power. Though he also admits in-story that he's been exposed to so many mind-altering chemicals and energies that he can't [[UnreliableNarrator be sure exactly what happened]]. The novelization confirms that the Storyteller is supposed to be Phil Foglio.

* ''Webcomic/{{Namesake}}'' Uses the idea that some people travel to parallel worlds and famous real world authors are just writing the stories of those travelers.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' had Darkwing accidentally travel to a parallel world in which there was a cartoon series based on him. He eventually learned that the creator of the cartoon had a piece of technology that allowed him to overhear the "real" Darkwing on his many adventures, and then adapted those adventures to a cartoon show. The episode ends with Darkwing having destroyed the device's connection to his world, but instead we hear from it [[WesternAnimation/ChipAndDaleRescueRangers Chip and Dale on one of their own adventures]].

* ''ComicBook/TheMultiversity'' posits that comic books are actually [[ATrueStoryInMyUniverse windows into alternate realities]], letting you see the multiverse in AFormYouAreComfortableWith. The [[CosmicHorrorStory horrifying implications]] of this are thoroughly explored; most notably, [[spoiler:a group of [[EldritchAbomination Lovecraftian horrors]] called the Gentry are trying to use it to invade and destroy universes, including ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou ours]]''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Played with by ''Film/TheLostSkeletonOfCadavra'', which doesn't claim that the events really happened, but rather does everything in it's power to make you think it's an actual 50's BMovie that's been rediscovered. Even the real life film crew operated under this while they were making the movie; the actors were playing [[BadBadActing bad actors playing their characters, not the characters themselves]].


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GarthMarenghisDarkplace'' is presented as if "[[ShowWithinAShow Darkplace]]" was a real TV show in the 1980's that's now being re-aired. Tremendous care is taken to faithfully [[{{Retraux}} recreate the look of a low budget show from the 80's]], all the way down to using an older version of the Channel 4 logo.
