* In ''TheBardsTale'' the player character and the narrator interact regularly. This usually involves them insulting one another, with the narrator taking almost sadistic glee in the acerbic protagonist's misfortunes.

** Towards the end of the episode "Wormhole X-Treme, one character manages to utterly annihilate the fourth wall. It's set up as one of the actors from ''Wormhole X-Treme'' being interviewed, only for the man to give his real life name. It actually breaks the wall more from there.
-->'''Christian Bocher:''' I'm Christian Bocher. I'm portraying the character of Raymond Gunn, who portrays the character of Dr. Levant, which is based on the character Daniel Jackson, portrayed by the actor Michael Shanks. Originally portrayed by the actor James Spader, in the feature film. ''(looks at camera operator with a concerned look)'' Are you okay?

* ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'' spends each episode with Fred Rogers talking directly to you, his "television neighbor,"
[[FriendToAllChildren in the kindliest tone you can imagine]]. He occasionally mixed in some MediumAwareness as well, showing us how his house was actually a set on a TV sound stage and taking us behind the scenes to meet the crew.

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'''s SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong breaks the fourth wall near-constantly in the older games, but the entire (AllThereInTheManual) storyline of ''Donkey Kong Land'' depends on the lack of a wall: Cranky has K. Rool steal DK's bananas ''again'' as part of a bet that DK and Diddy can't have a successful adventure on the 4-color GameBoy.

** Amusingly, the fourth wall tends to conceptually materialize whenever the action leaves the arena proper, with the backstage area and all other parts of the world beyond the ring supposedly being "behind the scenes" where the audience can't see what's happening. A common way to exploit this conceit is to have a heel wrestler "secretly" insult someone or [[JustBetweenYouAndMe admit to an ally to having committed a heinous deed]], completely disregarding the TV camera being held just beyond arms' reach. Sometimes the commentators will [[LampshadeHanging outright state that the whole world heard everything]], but more often everyone will "remain ignorant" of the incident until the face confronts the heel in the ring and reveal they obtained a videotape, [[EngineeredPublicConfession which will then be shown on the Titantron]].

* ''VideoGame/Fallout2'' has fun with the FourthWall, too. The PlayerCharacter thinking about to [[SaveScumming save his game in another slot]] is just the tip of the iceberg. There's also John Cassidy being frustrated about not having enough Action Points or wishing he had a LimitBreak, and [[PlayableEpilogue after finishing the main quest]] the Fourth Wall gets basically annihilated. You can even find the "[[StrategyGuide Fallout 2 Hintbook]]" in-game.

There's also John Cassidy being frustrated about not having enough Action Points or wishing he had a LimitBreak, you get mistaken for an NPC in one conversation (either as someone for the main character to fight if you're male or have sex with if you're female) and end up telling them that no, ''you're'' the main character, and [[PlayableEpilogue after finishing the main quest]] the Fourth Wall gets basically annihilated.
