* Swerve temporarily gained this in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' when he accidentally activated Brainstorm's Metafictional Bomb, which caused him to start narrating events using the comic book's sales pitch despite not understanding what he was talking about. He was finally saved from the effects when the rest of the cast teamed up to convince him that he was still a main character.

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' fansite mimir.net has a [[http://mimir.net/factions/guvnerlorill.html subfaction of the Guvners]] who reckon reality is a game, with people and even gods no more in control of their destiny than a chess pawn, but that if they understand the rules they'll be able to play better. So far, they've discovered that people have [[TheSixStats six attributes which can be expressed as whole numbers]] and that it is somehow [[CriticalFailure completely impossible]] for a warrior to successfully strike his foe more than 95% of the time.

* ''Music/TheyMightBeGiants'' have a few:
** "Number Three" is about a singer who says, "There's just two songs in me, and this is No. 3." The song is the third song on the album.
** "When Will You Die" has singer John Linnell introduce the band: "This is Dan, and that's Dan, and there's Marty on the drums to complete the band, and I'm John and he is also John and all of us are wondering when you're gonna die."
** "Everything Right is Wrong Again" has the line, "Every move is false, every four is waltz again." The time signature briefly changes when the singer says "waltz" -- not waltz time but it's awareness nonetheless.

** In various non-canonn side stories, the characters are aware that the story in question is non-canon. This is used not just for the occasional fourth wall joke, but also as an opportunity to have characters [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp.php?id=667 do things they wouldn't normally do]] because they're aware of the lack of consequences.

* In ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'', [[spoiler:Monika becomes aware that she is a character in a visual novel. [[GoMadFromTheRevelation She really doesn't take this well,]] and starts going about [[{{Yandere}} haphazardly deleting the other girls from the game so she can be with the player.]] This in and of itself has its own problems, since the way she approaches it causes [[InterfaceScrew numerous glitches and technical errors.]]]] Towards the end of the game, [[spoiler:Sayori also gains awareness due to succeeding Monika as club president, but Monika shuts her down, and the rest of the game for that matter, so what happened previously won't repeat itself.]]

** One of many, ''many'' [[DynamicCharacter interpretations]] of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' is that he knows he's a fictional character, and ''hates'' the plot he's been saddled with.

* In ''FanFic/TheApprenticeTheStudentAndTheCharlatan'', Nova Shine shows that he is aware of both the fact that he is in a story (he outright refers to the "backstory part of the chapter" at one point), and the fact that the first several chapters are undergoing a rewrite (On Twilight mentioning that mastering a spell will take time and effort, he notes that he mastered it in a day in the original version of the chapter).

** When she and Azusa are beside each other in the bath, Yamanake remarks that she can't tell them apart without her glasses (even though Azusa has acquired a significant tan and Mio has not). Mio wonders if it's a criticism if the manga artist.
