* A regular thing amongst characters of ''Fanfic/CoreLine''. This Very Wiki and Tropes within are quoted by name and asking if someone has seen a certain shows or film or comic is a regular InUniverse type of "AsYouKnow". This is pretty much a survival necessity because the setting has a broken Fourth Wall and many characters who were once fiction are running around.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', Harry is a fan of [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor Who]], and often makes references to it.



* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]]. He even references the EvilOverlordList at one point. Presumably one of his fellow badass nerds from the Alphas printed it out for him, what with the WalkingTechbane thing.

to:

* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]]. Dresden]] is constantly dropping references to everything from ''Star Wars'' to [[Franchise/HarryPotter another wizard called Harry]]. He is a self-professed follower of "the Tao of [[Franchise/SpiderMan Peter Parker]]" and even references the EvilOverlordList at one point.a couple of points. Presumably one of his fellow badass nerds from the Alphas printed it out for him, what with the WalkingTechbane thing.



** The Tenth Doctor was particularly fond of 20th / 21st century Earth pop culture. For example, he seems to be a Literature/HarryPotter fan, and once gave a humanitarian speech to an alien race that was threatening to kill a third of Earth's population...with lyrics from ''Disney/TheLionKing''. In "The Idiot's Lantern", he uses Music/KylieMinogue lyrics for an inspirational quote.

* In ''Fanfic/DumbledoresArmyAndTheYearOfDarkness'', Colin Creevey is a major pop-culture fan, befitting his Muggle heritage. This comes up more in the side works, but is mentioned in the main fic.

* Justin Russo from ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' manages to be both this, and a CulturedBadass. A [[BadassBookworm highly intelligent and well read]] young man, Justin loves comic books (to the point where he even ends up owning his favourite one and writing it himself), collects action figures (and plays with them), enjoys roleplaying games, can speak (fictional) alien languages and is a huge fan of inverse band "Tears of Blood". He's also a TeenGenius wizard, the last surviving [[TheHunter monster hunter]], whose done things like take on three thugs with his bare hands and emerge victorious, and stared down monsters and demons.

* ''Literature/AmericanPsycho''[='=]s Patrick Bateman fancies himself one-- but then he also describes Creator/WhitneyHouston as a ''jazz'' singer, [[SubvertedTrope so...]]

to:

* ''Literature/AmericanPsycho''[='=]s Deconstructed in ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'' and its adaptations. Patrick Bateman fancies tries to define himself one-- through his appreciation for music, art, and pop culture and relates this much to the reader/audience, but then his grasp and understanding of his favorite music and artists is reduced to what material they make the most appealing to the widest audiences and lowest common denominator, such as dismissing early Music/{{Genesis}} albums with Music/PeterGabriel (and his "lame solo career") as being "too artsy, too intellectual" and favoring the more commercially-driven direction of the group after Music/PhilCollins became the group's frontman. Other assessments he also describes Creator/WhitneyHouston as makes of popular singers and bands are frequently off-the-mark and factually wrong, like being convinced that Music/WhitneyHouston is a ''jazz'' singer, [[SubvertedTrope so...]]singer or believing [[Music/TheRollingStones "You Can't Always Get What You Want"]] is a song by Music/TheBeatles. In the book and musical, he often speaks of owning what's described as the original version of [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/600x315/5e/2e/c5/5e2ec5ee9ec77bb094ef1b45e762d45a.jpg "Sunrise with Broken Plates"]] by artist David Onica (while discreetly boasting of the high cost he paid to obtain it), only for his ex-girlfriend to later point out to him that he hung it upside down. All of this only serves to further demonstrate Patrick's shallowness and delusions about having "good taste."
