-->"Sorry about this. Normally we try and avoid these little pauses. ''Longeurs''. Only dramatically he's gone down to the basement, you see. 'Course, there isn't really a basement, but he just goes off and we pretend. Actually what happens is he just goes off there, off-camera, and just waits there so it looks as though he's gone down to the basement. Actually, I think he's rather overdoing it. Ah!"\\

* Tamaki, in ''Fanfic/TheBankCalledYourRealityCheckBounced'', subverts the trope by being perfectly well convinced that they are in an anime; he addresses the audience directly (leading other characters to wonder who he's talking to) and mentions having enough time in "this episode" for something. Kyoya, however, eventually explains that they are actually in a fan fiction, and he's apparently been aware of it the entire time.
* In the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos series]], Prince Vince is not only aware that they're all in a bunch of stories, ''he's following the author on {{Tumblr}}'' and reads each chapter as it's released. It's actually a plot point - he keeps tabs on the heroes by monitoring the story and sends help when he can.

** The best has to be the gas station scene from the sequel. When the [[BadBadActing station attendant proves to be a horrible actor]], he is replaced '''on screen''' by [[ClassicallyTrainedExtra Charlton Heston]]. For added bonus, [[CreatorCameo the crew member doing the switch is the actual director.]]

* ''VideoGame/SpookysHouseOfJumpScares'' has a series of ApocalypticLogs left by a HeroOfAnotherStory; leaving notes behind in vain hope that he is the protagonist of the video game and not a doomed-side-character-leaving-notes-for-the-player-to-find-for-exposition. He has an OhCrap moment when he finds out that he is one of those.

It's also a wonderful thing to play with and that is what Medium Awareness does; the characters acknowledge and interact with elements and conventions of the medium that shouldn't technically "exist" in-universe. Suddenly the characters can hear the ominous background music or the disembodied narration, they can read the subtitles at the bottom of your screen, and they can tell when it's almost time for a commercial break.
