* ''WebVideo/FilthyFrank'' similar to the {{lonelygirl15}} example, is presented in a way as if Frank and co are actual members of the human race. This trope is taken further in the videos where Pink Guy roams around in Real life locations, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEl-02qxV3U Times Square]].

* The Jim Henson Company's ''WesterenAnimation/WordParty'' also uses this trope, the characters and narrator addresses the audience directly.

* The characters on ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' are [[MediumAwareness fully aware of the fact that they are in a cartoon]]. In fact, at the end of Episode 105, [[spoiler: Stumpy takes over the animation studio]], and the characters have frequently referred to being in a cartoon.

A series with No Fourth Wall doesn't just break the fourth wall, it ''vaporizes'' it. There might as well not be one. Characters will make references to "the last episode" or "next issue". They'll [[RageAgainstTheAuthor criticize the writing]], [[WhoWritesThisCrap production]], [[BitingTheHandHumor management]] or even the [[TakeThatAudience audience]]. In extreme cases, they'll refuse to go on acting. Expect there to be large amounts of MediumAwareness, such as characters in a comic pointing out the use of panels. No Fourth Wall often leads to characters being extremely GenreSavvy, or frequent [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] of GenreBlindness.

* In fact, in most Pooh adaptations that acknowledges the storybook aspect of the franchise, it's a STANDARD, from the narrator frequently interacting with the cast, to in-book elements affecting the actual text of the book (such as the winds of the blustery day blowing off some of the text which blow into Pooh, for starters, and vice versa (turning the page prevents Pooh from flying out of the book)

** This is perhaps a reference back to the very first story of the very first Pooh book, which uses a FramingDevice of Christopher Robin and Edward Bear ([[IHaveManyNames yes, that's Pooh]]) wanting to be read a bedtime story, with Pooh liking stories about himself, and so the narrator--never stated by name but obviously author A.A. Milne, as Christopher Robin was based on his own son and the other characters on the real Christopher Robin's stuffed animals--tells them the story about Pooh's attempt to get honey by tricking the bees into thinking he was a rain cloud. While later stories more or less dropped this aspect, FirstInstallmentWins is likely guiding the adaptations.

* ''Roleplay/WeAreAllPokemonTrainers'' has so many examples of humans and Pokémon breaking the fourth wall that it's considered a distinct power, and the authors have joked that the RP's fourth wall is more akin to a fourth wall ''curtain.''

** George in the first film makes constant asides to the audience and often chats with the narrator. The villains outright berate the narrator for giving them such a hard time.
