* Frequently seen in the sillier or more surreal ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' fanfic of the late 1990s, especially those written as part of, or in the orbit of, the fanfic cycle known as "[[http://www.angelfire.com/anime2/superhighway/Bet/bet.html The Bet]]", where the characters were portrayed as being "hired" by fanfic writers to recreate the roles they created for Rumiko Takahashi, and were sometimes ''very'' different when "off-camera".

* ''BooksDontWorkHere'' lives and breathes this trope even though it's an original. There is NoFourthWall and the characters are actors paid (not much mind you) to act out the plot of the comic. That's how it works in theory, at least - in practice, there is a lot of ad-libbing, backtalk, and complaining about the budget.
* ''CassToons'', a parody [[FanWebComics Fan Web Comic]] originally started as a response to the FaceHeelTurn of Cassandra Cain's ComicBook/{{Batgirl| 2000}}, is a Meta Fic of TheDCU and to a lesser extent the MarvelUniverse.

* [[http://amethyst-angel.com/nadesico_main_tt.html Nadesico Thumbnail Theater's]] "Nagare Akatsuki's Guided Tour of [[MartianSuccessorNadesico Nadesico]] Fanfiction". NTT and its progenitor [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]] Thumbnail Theater sometimes lapse into this in their actual episode "summaries". As does Five Minute [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]], their live-action counterpart ([[http://www.fiveminute.net found here]]).

* FIM also has ''Fanfic/{{Human}}'' by [=DannyJ=], which while indulging in HumansAreCthulhu and DarkerAndEdgier, involves a former animator using his knowledge of the show to take over Canterlot, and Celestia working to become a main character to defeat the villain, as families explode and motives are revealed.

* The ''KingdomHearts'' fanfiction ''Fanfic/ThoseLackingSpines'', while ostensibly self-contained, mercilessly skewers the dark side of every aspect of fanfiction, including High School AlternateUniverse, {{yaoi}} fanfiction, the {{flanderization}} of all the "hot" characters (Xaldin, Vexen, and Lexaeus are the heroes of this fic because they are unaffected by TheVirus that turns their comrades into shadows of their former selves), poorly done crossovers, [[CrackFic random]] and {{wangst}} fanfiction, and {{Mary Sue}}s.

** To make matters more confusing. The characters here are not actors but LivingDreams and they know the verse is still a story so they have vested interest in [[TheoryOfNarrativeCausality keeping the story going]] and the [[{{Fanservice}} fan wishes satisfied]]... if they don't want two both of those things are SentientCosmicForces and they CantFightFate, so in the darker installments cross over to DeconstructionFic routinely.
