** "The Signal" centers on Elmore experiencing numerous anomalies that turn out to coincide exactly with a number of television signal interruptions. Just before Darwin and Gumball can conclude they're ''also'' a TV show, another jump sends them to an EverybodyLaughsEnding, which seems to have taken them off the topic.
** A combination of spending time in a metaficitonal PhantomZone for bad ideas and TimeTravel via television remote (which includes passing through the show's credits) make Rob realize the world he lives in isn't real. This makes him despise Gumball even more, as Rob concludes Gumball being the hero is why he became a villain, and that he could be whoever he wanted [[HostileShowTakeover if he got rid of Gumball]]. (Gumball actually went to the Void twice and also heard Rob explain Elmore wasn't real, but remains ignorant of such because of VictoryGuidedAmnesia experienced after both incidents.)

* The GenreSavvy DeadpanSnarker Digeri Dingo from ''WesternAnimation/TazMania'' has more fun with the fourth wall than any other character in the show. Subverted as he's not very concerned that he lives in a fictional cartoon.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory,'' Buzz Lightyear finally realizes he's a toy when he sees a commercial advertising him. This probably counts as an in-universe example, because what he doesn't realize is that he's a CGI animation.

''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'': Buzz Lightyear finally realizes he's a toy, and not the character the toy is based on, when he sees a commercial advertising him. The "real" fourth wall is never touched, though.

* ''VideoGame/Undertale'': If you play as a complete and unrepentant sociopath who slaughters mooks, guards, small children, heroes, TV stars, and anyone else stupid enough to get in your way, you'll awaken the demon overlord [[spoiler:Chara]] from the sleep of the dead with your violence. She'll call you out on defining her purpose through every EXP you ever earned. Then she'll attack ''you'' with such force that ''the game screen fills up with DPS-nines and the entire underground dies''. [[spoiler:''And she'll never go back to sleep'']].

* In ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'', one short has the girls encounter one of the silhouetted background characters that were prominent in Volume 1. They mention how creepy they are, how they never seem to talk to them and how some of them look like them, in which we see a Ruby version who bashfully waves hi to them.

* TheReveal at the end of {{Creator/Bernard Werber}}'s ''Gods'' cycle of books is that the characters were fictional all the way. At the end, thanks to some AppliedPhlebotinum, they turn themselves into photons who travel just behind the surface of the pages of the book, and at one point one of the characters bounces against the "wall" of the page, creating an impact seen as a dot by the reader. The hero doesn't take this well, but his philosophical mentor is rather happy to learn he's effectively immortal, as he'll live again every time someone reads the book.
