* The GrandFinale of ''WebVideo/FiveSecondFilms'' has the crew bemoaning that Vines have replaced them, but a crew member tears the "The End" screen in two, and in an act of revenge, the people behind 5sf swear to destroy the internet. The campaign begins when one of the team members shotguns the YouTube timer.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' has a loose connection with the fourth wall thanks to [[RealityWarper Bat-Mite]], but in "Emperor Joker!" when the clown prince of crime gets Bat-Mite's powers by mistake, reality loses it's mind. Later in the episode when the omnipotent Joker leaps into Batman's brain to make him go insane, leaving the powerless Bat-Mite and the rebelling Harley Quinn to deal with his goons. This particular Harley is themed after 1920s Flappers, and The Joker has made her mute, her dialogue appearing in intertitles. Then Bat-Mite rips the intertitles off the TV screen, and he and Harley start using Harley's dialogue like 2 by 4s.

* ''Webcomic/PerryBibleFellowship'': [[http://pbfcomics.com/145/ Nunez]] starts on a view of what seems to be [[ThirstyDesert two men dying of thirst on a sand dune]], with one saying they need to escape "this dessert". The last panel zooms out to show that wasn't a typo, they're actually on a giant lemon cake.

%%* {{Deadpool}}.



* Also, in one episode of ''[[Series/{{Poirot}} Agatha Christie's Poirot]]'', the first scene is of a man in full winter garb wandering over a noticeably cloth-like snow floor with a white background and fake snow falling. It was distractingly fake, but since international flights to Antarctica would be expensive for a film crew, the audience ignores it. Until the camera pulls back to show it is merely a film set, with fake snow being blown with a large fan. The episode is about the actors from this badly-made movie.

* In SentinelsOfTheMultiverse, one of Guise's cards has him hitting Wager Master with the card's keyword bar. Given that Guise is a Expy of ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}, this is likely inspired by his hyper combo in [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3]].

* An [[SurrealHorror astoundingly creepy]] NinjaProp can be found in the ''P.T.'' teaser for ''VideoGame/SilentHills''. At the game's start YouWakeUpInARoom that's mostly dark and hear strange vaguely-philosophical rambling, and you're left to assume it was the PlayerCharacter's internal narration. Once you get a flashlight and go back to the room, shining a light on the darkened corner shows it was actually coming from an in-world source -- [[spoiler:specifically, a [[MindScrew bloody paper bag]].]]

* Gleefully used in ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic''[='s=] [[Recap/TheNostalgiaCriticS7E19 Top 11 Best]] ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' episodes. To begin with, Creator/DanteBasco as Zuko [[FrameBreak punches down the Critic out of the video player]] and into the Website/YouTube comments section below. The Nostalgia Critic fights back by grabbing negative comments and throwing them at the firebender, in a {{literal|Metaphor}} FlameWar. And when low on ammunition, he yells "Creator/JossWhedon is overrated!" to make more appears. Then Dante seizes one to throw back at the Critic, who warns him that he's about to hit the yellow advertising line of the video. Of course, the Critic takes advantage of the commercial break to get away. Finally, still on the [=YouTube=] webpage, the Critic hides [[StandInPortrait in front of his own image on the picture]] for his ''Film/TheLastAirbender'' [[Recap/TheNostalgiaCriticS6E15 review]].

There are certain things we're used to seeing in certain media: {{speech bubble}}s and [[ThoughtCaption captions]] in comics, [[WireFu wires that make people "fly"]] in shows, and stage hands that move props and sets around in theater. This last one is where the trope gets its name. The classic outfit associated with {{Ninja}} (black, tight suit and a mask with a slit for the eyes) actually comes from stage hands in Japanese theater. They wore black so that the audience knew to ignore them. (The variety of stagehand in live performing arts who ''handle'' props and setpieces on, off, and around the stage in Western theatre are colloquially referred to as "stage ninjas" due to their all-black clothing and stealthy profession, so the term has fed back into itself.) Imagine the shock of the audience, then, when the non-entity setting the castle walls in place for scene 4 suddenly pulls out a dagger and kills one of the characters.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead Forest of the Dead]]" uses JumpCut to transition from a scene to the other (for example, the characters in a house talk about taking a stroll in the park, and we jump to the park). Quite an ordinary way of depicting the passing of time in a TV medium, right? Except Donna realizes that she isn't experiencing at all the time between the cuts, only fake memories. This is her first hint she's inside a LotusEaterMachine.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'', there are two albums featuring a similar gag, where the bard is sweeping ''musical notes'' with a broom as if they were dust.

* The FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', just to drive the point home that you're in a fight to the death with no escape and no mercy, ''destroys'' the "Mercy" button that you use to flee the battle or try to spare the enemy. [[spoiler: Fortunately, it's still possible to spare him like every other enemy in the game.]]
** One of the dungeons of the game contains a myriad of shapeshifting monsters, two of which disguise themselves as a emoticon bubble and a save point. [[spoiler: The very act of saving also becomes an important plot point, as it's revealed that Flowey also possessed the ability to save, before you arrived on the scene and your ability to save overrode his. Once he goes OneWingedAngel, he takes advantage of his power by overwriting your save so he can kill you over and over again, and abusing SaveScumming during the actual battle (meanwhile the "Fight" and "Act" menu buttons now become physical objects that the player has to move over and interact with to use.]]
** The already DangerouslyGenreSavvy [[spoiler: Sans, the FinalBoss of the Genocide route]] also takes advantage of this. [[spoiler: Since your menu icon is the same icon as the heart that represents your player's Soul (basically your hitbox during the BulletHell segments,) he takes the opportunity to start attacking your cursor in-between rounds, which has the same affect as getting attacked normally. His "ultimate attack" also takes advantage of the turn-based nature of the game's combat, as he simply refuses to end his turn in the hopes that the player will give up and quit. The player then has to take advantage of this trope themselves by ''dragging'' the square field their soul resides in during combat over to the fight button and selecting it to finish him off.]]

* The intro for ''WebAnimation/LesKassos'' has a [[FollowTheBouncingBall bouncing ball]] over the lyrics of the theme song while some characters are singing and dancing beneath them. On the last syllable, the ball falls from the words and hits Dark Papy in the helmet.



* In the Creator/TexAvery [[WesternAnimation/TexAveryMGMCartoons MGM cartoon]] ''WesternAnimation/MagicalMaestro'', a stray hair is seen shaking around at the bottom of the screen -- a common problem with films at the time. That is, until the on-screen cartoon singer actually plucks the annoying hair out. (This gag is rumored to have turned a few projectionists bonkers as they tried to remove the way-too-realistic hair.)
