** And then there's S5's episode "Basic Story" where Abed's MediumAwareness nearly causes him to go insane as he tries to keep the story - and thus the show - from ending. In the second half, "Basic Sandwich" there's even a LeaningOntheFourthWall moment when he does an AsideGlance to the viewer, causing Annie to wonder who he was looking at.

** And there's also the time when they needed to feed the monster in the darkness, and Belkar complained that he couldn't do it because "I told you that in one of the dragon comics, so I'm not even sure if that's the same continuity..."

** And [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0882.html the time]] that Tarquin realizes that that since he's talking openly about Malack being a vampire, that must mean it was already revealed to the heroes (and thus the readers); otherwise he would've been restricted to vaguely alluding to it even though everyone actually in the scene already knew.

* The MarvelComics villainess called The Goddess once gained cosmic power in ''The Infinity Crusade''. One of the realities she planned to destroy was the real world, presented as a person reading one of the 'Crusade' issues. Later, the 'real' world is seen bursting into flames but it proves only to be a telepathic illusion.

* In DCComics SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' can interact with speech and thought bubbles, grabbing hold of or leaning on them. This is most likely part of the idea - also used to partially explain Deadpool - that Joker is so insane that he has become aware of things other characters have not.

* One of DaveBarry's many books contains a bit in which he includes an incredibly short (four pages) novel which is very, very obviously being written with the hope that it will be made into a movie. At the end of the book, two of the characters are standing around when the movie end credits begin scrolling up from the bottom of the screen. "Hey," one of them says, "these names are ''backwards''."

* ''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.
