* In ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors'', the TV-obsessed patient is seen watching an early scene from the movie ''Film/{{Critters}}''. Later, ''Critters 2: The Second Course'' had one of its alien doppelgangers attempt to imitate a cardboard Freddy Kruegar standee at a video store.

* Once upon a time, MilestoneComics and DCComics' Comicbook/{{Superman}} [[BatFamilyCrossover books]] participated in a CrisisCrossover, ''Worlds Collide''. The story started with a mailman in the DC Universe who went to sleep and dreamed of waking up and working as a mailman in the Milestone universe (or vice versa), until other strange things started happening in both universes. The ''ComicBook/BloodSyndicate'' (essentially a [[VillainProtagonist streetgang with powers]]) were the first Milestone characters to meet Superman, and although they thought he was just a local wannabe, they all immediately knew who Superman was, what he could do, etc., because Superman was a comic book character in the Milestone 'verse. ("Does your mama know you left the house looking like Clark Kent?!"[[note]]This was also during Superman's mullet hair phase - and the Syndicate were disappointed he had no spit curl[[/note]]). Superman doesn't have the same benefits, realistically, since the Milestone Comics characters were hardly a household name, and he's not much of a comic fanboy.

* Played with in M. [=McGregor=]'s "[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-16694-62/MMcGregor+The+Wonderland+Subject.htm The Wonderland Subject]]", a dimension-hopping ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' / UltimateMarvel crossover in which each universe has fiction based on the other one. Xander and Jean Grey spend quite a while [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee being fannish at each other]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/OriginStory'', Xander used to read Creator/MarvelComics and in the Marvel Universe, ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' was a fairly popular show though it only got two seasons and had a different cast (All of whom are a MythologyGag from original casting ideas).

** In a few episodes the inspector can be seen watching ''HeathcliffAndTheCatillacCats'', likewise ''Inspector Gadget'' has showed up as a TV Show on Heatcliff. Both shows were produced by DiC at around the same time.

* The plot line in ''Series/RedDwarf'' where the Dwarf crew realise they are fictional characters, and the only way for Dave Lister to escape the situation and re-assert independent reality involves going onto the set of a soap opera called ''Series/CoronationStreet'', where an actor called Craig Charles plays a genial taxi-driver who is something of a laid-back, somewhat scruffy, Scouse slacker... it all gets eye-wateringly recursive after a while.

* In ''Series/MadAboutYou'' there is an episode where Paul visits an old apartment of his. That apartment happens to be Jerry Seinfeld's and he runs into and has a rather poignant conversation with Kramer. But in a later episode of ''{{Seinfeld}}'' George is forced to suffer watching an episode of ''Mad About You'' with his fiancee Susan.

* In the first ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984'', ''Film/TheEvilDead1981'' is seen on a TV, a ShoutOut to a poster for Creator/WesCraven's earlier film ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' appearing in ''The Evil Dead'' (which was itself a ShoutOut to a poster for ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' appearing in ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes''). Then in ''Film/EvilDead2'', Freddy Krueger's glove is seen in the shed where Ash creates his chainsaw-hand. Averted in [[Comicbook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh the comics]], there was an UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny between Freddy, Ash, and [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]].

* A cross-media example: An ad for ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' appeared at the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'' Season 5 premiere, with some of the mercenaries too distracted by Hank and Dean's antics to notice a Spy sneaking into their base. A little over a season later, Rusty and Sgt. Hatred were seen playing ''Team Fortress 2'' when they were supposed to be working. While both universes have appeared in the [[InnBetweenWorlds interdimensional bar]] known as [[VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory The Inventory]], they appeared one game apart.
