* {{Spider-man}} is a more "classical" type, as he often comments on the unlikely events of the plot, how his actions go against rationality, and makes pop culture references, but he's still completely unaware of the FourthWall.
** [[DependingOnTheWriter Usually]] [[WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan anyway]]...

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Alias}}'': The Purple Man describes everything as if he and the other characters are in comic books, even going so far as to narrate events like he's writing a comic. He does a considerable amount of LeaningOnTheFourthWall in the final issues of the series.

** Also, [[spoiler:Sans the skeleton. His time manipulation lets him recognize the fact that there are MultipleEndings, and comments on the changes between them. This gets played to disturbing effect if you decide to go for a Genocide Run, where he serves as the final boss. Since it's almost impossible to get here on a first playthrough (you have to go out of your way to kill certain friendly characters) he starts to theorize on why you would decide to murder every living thing you came across after having already seen a happy ending. His number one theory is [[OneHundredPercentCompletion "you wanted to see what would happen"]]. He also elevates the Meta Guy routine [[ThatOneBoss to a weaponized form]], with almost all of his attacks invoking some flavor of InterfaceScrew. It becomes clear he's not attacking the player character; he's trying to ''stall out the player until they quit the game in frustration''.]]
