* The GenreSavvy DeadpanSnarker Digeri Dingo from ''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.

* "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. 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'']].

* 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.

* Parodied in a {{TBS}} commercial for ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. Sheldon and Leonard are sitting in their living room trying to remember what show comes on before ''Series/{{Conan}}'' on TBS. Before they can look it up, though, Creator/ConanOBrien bursts into their apartment, looks at the Fourth Wall, and exclaims that the two ''can't'' learn that they're in a sitcom. Sheldon's response?

* The sci-fi comic ''[[TwoThousandAD 2000 A.D.]]'' once ran a Creator/MarkMillar comic about a man who suddenly realizes he's in a comic, and it will soon end. He decides to make the best of his time left by going in a nihilistic rampage ("It's not really murder, you understand. None of these people have names.") It ends with the man being arrested and pointing the reader out to one of the policemen. He turns around in horror, screams, and grabs on to the panel border with tears in his eyes. "Oh God! Please don't turn the page...Please, read it again!"

* ''Comicbook/TheSimpsons'' "Treehouse of Horror" comic "Immigration of the Body Snatchers" ends this way. After a parade of {{Shout Out}}s to twist endings from ''TheTwilightZone,'' ''PlanetOfTheApes'' and even ''Creator/MontyPython,'' Sideshow Bob shouts that none of it is real and they're all just ink on paper. Everyone laughs at him... until he points to the surrounding panels and to the reader.

* ''FairlyOddparents'': When Timmy wishes the Crimson Chin out of his comic and shows him he's fictional, he suffers a HeroicBSOD. When he's returned to the comic, every panel is just him sucking his thumb in a fetal position.
