Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' is this. In the side-scroller games, [[Main/IdleAnimation he will get very impatient and give the player an annoyed look if the player does nothing]]. In the 360/PS3 versions of ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' and ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', he will watch his score for the stage get tallied up. In the Wii version of ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', he will call the Rotatatron the BBBE[[note]][[Main/FunWithAcronyms Best Boss Bashing Ever]][[/note]] and will destroy the scores in an attempt to obtain extra lives.


Added DiffLines:

* Pretty much all of the main characters in ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', but Sonic, Sticks, [[Main/MemeticMutation & Knuckles]] take the cake.
** Sonic notes he has lots of fans, but most of them criticize everything he does. This is much more likely referring to his real world fans.
** Knuckles notes that fans say he's too tall and talks about his character description. Also insults the writers at the end of each cliff hanger.
** Sticks talks a lot to the viewers. As shown in the page quote, she probably used to think they there just because she's crazy.

** Which is [[ActorAllusion made even funnier]] by the fact that the fairy who refuses to sing is played by FeliciaDay of WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog!

* Music/{{Metallica}} have a song titled after Creator/HPLovecraft's most famous short story, "Music/TheCallOfCthulhu", but it's spelt "The Call of Ktulu". However, the misspelling is intentional. Lovecraft wrote that saying, or even spelling out, Cthulhu's name would [[SpeakOfTheDevil draw his attention]]. Since Cthulhu is the TropeCodifier for EldritchAbomination, this is ''not'' something you want to happen. Doubles as TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou.

** "Knock Knock, Who's Ed?" has Edd suggest simply [[StatingTheSimpleSolution going to his or Eddy's house]] to watch the movie marathon. Eddy shoots it down thusly: "What, and ''ruin the plot?!''"

** Deconstructed in [[https://draconichero18.deviantart.com/art/Turnabout-Storm-Bad-Ending-my-version-364318397 one]] non-canon BadEnding to ''WebAnimation/Turnabout Storm''--in it, [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] failed to get Rainbow Dash acquitted for murder and she fled to avoid banishment. Later, after Phoenix has been sent back to his world, Discord took over in Equestria because the Elements of Harmony were no longer complete in Rainbow Dash's absence. Pinkie Pie, with Luna and Twilight's help, contacts him by channeling Maya and informs him that he can save the day by "turning off the power and starting from a proper save point" and adding that if he's confused "the person sitting in front of the screen will know what she's talking about" - in short, showing awareness that Phoenix is a video game character and that they're both in an online fanfiction. Unfortunately, Phoenix himself ''isn't'' medium aware and thus has no clue what Pinkie's talking about...and then ''[[FromBadToWorse Discord himself]]'' hijacks their channeling session...

*** To be fair, fans have often suggested that the Iron Will thing was Pinkie Pie thinking "He can see them too!?"

** This gag has extended to other media including Deadpool: in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', he can beat his opponent around the head with his own life bar, and his [[Film/{{Deadpool2016}} movie]] has his actor Creator/RyanReynolds doing plenty of fourth wall breaking.

* The Fey in ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' are explicitly aware that they live in a webcomic based around the rules of ''{{Exalted}}''. This befuddles most of the other characters, who 'know' that they live directly in ''{{Exalted}}''. In this case, it is because the Fey in the aforementioned game have an utterly alien mindset, and this was an easy way to represent that. The Sidereals seem to have a little bit of this too, with moves that rely upon breaking perspective and knocking people through the box boundaries - which is kind of what Sidereal Martial Arts normally do.

* ''VideoGame/ShadowOfDestiny'' and ''VideoGame/TimeHollow'', both by the same director, have a {{Mind Screw}}y NewGamePlus where the character can confront the main antagonist with all the details of the game at the beginning... because they've already played through the game before, so they know the plot. Ow, my brain.
