* In the video game ''VideoGame/MafiaII'', Vito Scaletta is hiding in an office waiting for the guards to move away so he can steal gas rationing coupons. If you make him wait long enough, the guards engage in a conversation aout a television one of them has purchased (remembering that this is a WW2-era game at this point) and one guard describes how it might be in the future that you could control the characters on the television, using some device to make them drive cars, shoot guns and essentially behave just like the characters in the first-person shooter you are playing and that they are. The other guard is dismissive of the idea. There are occasional NPC comments that indicate an awareness of the game.

* [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Webcomic/ShiftyLook ShiftyLook's]] comic based on ''VideoGame/{{Bravoman}}'' does this a lot. Characters frequently point out when the comic changes, and make fun of the writers and merchandising. One instance has Bravoman develop a laser weapon that kills instantly, but it only works on nameless mooks, so Dr. Bomb creates minions with names that are immune. In the alternate universe, Dr. Bomb [[spoiler: or so it seemed]] invented a device to shut the fourth wall down, preventing the meta-humor and powers that it grants, allowing him to take over the world.

** The cast tends to more often [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall lean on the fourth wall]] than break it, but the [[OverlyLongGag bananas]] might be said to be a consistent Fourth Wall breach that would even change the plot outcomes.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is a strange example, as it falls under this trope even though the characters, by and large, don't know that they're in a TV show. Just a few examples:
** "The Countdown" has a countdown clock show up on the screen. Gumball and Darwin can visibly see it, notice that it runs off the show's time instead of how long it logically could, and eventually they accidentally cause it stop, making [[TimeStandsStill time freeze]]. Then, they interact with it, causing them to TimeTravel.
** "The Money", where the Wattersons being broke causes the show's animation to downgrade, including the show turning into bad CG, them running through the episode's storyboard, and eventually become sticky notes. The characters are fully aware that this happening.
** "The Signal", where satellite interruptions start affecting Elmore, because it's inside a TV show. [[spoiler: [[NoticingTheFourthWall Just as Gumball and Darwin are about to figure this out]], it abruptly cuts to them at the dinner table to take them off the subject. Both of them are visibly scared about this.]]
** [[TwoPartEpisode "The Disaster/The Re-run"]], where a character gets the TV remote to the show itself, rewinds through the episode, including actual ads for the show, uses it to control the volume, aspect ratio, and other aspects of the show. Eventually, [[NoticingTheFourthWall they start ranting to Gumball about how the world they're isn't real.]]

* You are pretty much considered a character in ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'', the Miis even going as far as to refer to you as "[first islander]'s lookalike" (the first islander supposedly being a Mii of yourself). A live-action hand is also superimposed into the game whenever you, for example, remove a flower petal off a Mii's head.
