* 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]].

* An episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone1960'' entitled "A World of His Own" somehow managed to do this to ''itself''. The story deals with a writer named Gregory West who can [[RealityWarper cause fictional characters to appear in real life]] if he dictates descriptions of them into his tape recorder, and cause them to disappear again by burning the tape he described them on. At the end of the episode, [[OnceAnEpisode as is traditional]] Rod Serling appears to give the story's closing narration.

* References to characters watching ''Series/{{Passions}}'' started showing up during season four of ''Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}''. Shortly afterward, ''Passions'' characters started watching ''Buffy''. Also, characters in Buffy have talked about Series/{{Xena|the Warrior Princess}}, whereas, while they clearly can't have a television show on Xena, there is a play called 'Buffus the Bacchae Slayer'. Of course, as Xena is both told by a [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis literary agent]] and [[NoFourthWall fictional within itself]], it's anyone's guess as to what is actually going on.

* Once upon a time, MilestoneComics and Creator/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.

* In ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'', characters make several references to ''LuckyStar'' -- which, in turn, contains many references to ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya''.
** It has been [[WildMassGuessing theorised]] that in the fanfic's universe, ''LuckyStar'' references "the JustForFun/TropeTan [[ShowWithinAShow anime]]" instead of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya''.
* Within Series/{{Sherlock}} BBC fanfiction, Series/{{DoctorWho}} has been both fictional (e.g. John Watson's a whovian) and real (e.g. John is the son of Captain Jack Harkness, a character on Doctor Who), depending on what universe the fanfiction author is writing in. Additionally, some Whovian fanfiction features the Sherlock characters as real people, or claims that the Doctor is a fan of the original Conan-Doyle figure. *Cue Rift crack*
