* [[http://www.iflscience.com/editors-blog/archaeologists-discover-mayan-temple-has-two-more-pyramids-inside-it/ The Temple of Kukulcan]] in the Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá, Yucatán is a Matryoshka ''pyramid'', with at least two smaller pyramids in it. There are a few theories as to why it was built that way. A new pyramid could have been built simply as a renovation of the old one, or alternatively, built to erase the past from the city’s memory with the arrival of a new leader. It's quite possible most of the {{Mayincatec}} pyramids are like this, beacuse why demolish or repair such a structure when it'd be much easier to simply build a new pyramid on top of the old one?

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-641 SCP-641 ("The Pacifier")]]. SCP-641 appears to be a normal matryoshka doll, but the dolls are extremely thin and the total number of dolls inside is unknown (it's at least 3,228, and may be infinite).
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1917 SCP-1917 ("The Armour Maker")]]. SCP-1917-1-36 through SCP-1917-1-42 are duplicates of Russian-made T-34/76 tanks that were created by SCP-1917. Each successive tank is 20% smaller than the previous one, and they were designed so they could be nested inside each other.

* An episode of ''Series/TheBigComfyCouch'' had Loonette and Major Bedhead unwrapping an extra large package that Auntie Macasar had delivered, only for every box to progressively contain a smaller box. Inside the smallest box were some extra small toiletries for Molly.


Added DiffLines:

** A similar gag happens in "Yankee Doodle Mouse" except that Tom holds the firework up instead of placing it on his nose.

* In Creator/CoryDoctorow's ''Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town'', 3 of the protagonist's brothers are Matryoshka dolls in the literal sence (by the way, his father is a mountain, his mother a washing machine and two of his other brothers are an island and an undead ghoulish thing), so when the one with the actual digestive system goes missing, the other 2 start to starve.

** This is also the basis of the game "Pass the Parcel" - a prize is hidden within multiple layers of packaging and is passed around while music plays. When the music stops, whoever's holding the parcel gets to remove one layer.

* The smallest scale of model railroad, Z scale (1:220), can be used on larger model railroads to represent a model railroad. Yes, a model railroad featuring a model railroad. ''Webcomic/{{XKCD}}'' [[http://xkcd.com/878/ had fun with this idea]].

* The Mammoshka boss in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam''. It's a mammoth like creature inside a whole horde of mammoth like shells each slightly bigger than the one inside it. The actual creature even turns out to be less than half the size of the thing you start out by facing!

* In one episode of Series/{{Castle}}, Castle and Beckett have to check Eastern European shops to try to find a candy bar the victim had (so that they can hopefully identify her). Beckett tells the captain Castle "had to buy something in every shop!" He's then seen showing off a set of new nesting dolls, gleefully explaining that they defy the laws of physics because "Just when you think there can't be another one..."
