** 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''.]]

Very common in [[TheParody parodies]]. Not to be confused with Meta ''[[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Knight]]''. See GenreSavvy and DeadpanSnarker.

* Speaking of {{Selfdemonstrating/Loki}}, he generally hovers between this trope and outright FourthWallObserver. His newer incarnations are best described as sitting atop an in-universe fourth wall (claiming gods are ''living myth and metaphor'') {{leaning on the|FourthWall}} real one and occasionally hitting it so hard it {{break|ingTheFourthWall}}s in spectacularly awesome ways.
