* The first series of ''Series/TheMightyBoosh'' especially, opens with Vince and Howard introducing the show in front of a curtain, and generally riffing on what's to come. This occasionally includes quibbling about changes in the script, and bitching about using up special effects money on Vince's hair. Occasionally they'll pause mid-episode to reference these facts. Vince is fond of breaking the fourth wall with a wink or a grin, and an episode in Series 3 has Howard pause and address the camera directly to point out that the audience has already seen the events he's about to summarise.

* ''Film/TheLifeAndDeathOfPeterSellers'' is structured as a {{Biopic}} being made by Creator/PeterSellers (Geoffrey Rush) himself. Most of the film is the [=Biopic=] itself, but several times one of the characters will be revealed to "actually" be played by Peter as s/he addresses the audience directly about Peter. For example: Anne Levy (his first wife) is played by EmilyWatson most of the way, but after she breaks up with Peter, the reveal has Geoffrey-as-Peter-as-Emily-as-Anne decide to rerecord her dialogue to give the relationship a happier finish.

* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' has the conversations between Carol and Gustav St. Germain in the anime, regarding which character is the main protagonist and why the series doesn't have a conclusive ending. The anime tells the story in a completely non-chronological order and invites the audience to put all the pieces together, in contrast to the books, which are slightly more linear.

* Andrew Hussie of ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' loves playing with the pseudo-InteractiveFiction structure of the various series. ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' in general has NoFourthWall whatsoever, it disappeared completely right around the time the titular character ''consulted GameFAQs'' to get the answer to a particularly challenging puzzle. Another puzzle in ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' was only passed by the characters reloading to a save state located ''after'' the puzzle was solved. That's right, they resorted to abusing SaveScumming ''in-universe''.

* Played with in later episodes of ''KateModern'', when Gavin becomes convinced that his life is being turned into an online TV show, and complains that people keep [[CelebrityParadox mistaking him for a professional actor]] (he was played by Ralf Little, best known for ''The Royle Family'' and ''TwoPintsOfLagerAndAPacketOfCrisps''). In "Fictionality," he muses, "How do I even know I exist?"

* "In vernünftigen Grenzen" by Swiss band "Die Aeronauten" is a volley against postmodernism (read: everything is ironic, everything is just a game, everything is meta, nothing matters) as a moral attitude.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', saving, resetting, and gaining experience points are all parts of the plot, and a few of the characters will comment on your actions in past playthroughs, to the point where if you get the GoldenEnding, one of the characters will [[spoiler: beg you not to reset the game because everyone is so happy]]. This is taken a step further in the [[spoiler: Genocide route, where the player must go out of their way to eradicate all life in the Underground. If this is done, it becomes impossible to achieve a good ending. ''Permanently''.]]

* ''Comicbook/HowardTheDuck'' had plenty of it during a 2016 issue: [[Characters/XMenRoguesGalleryMToZ Mojo]] revealed he was behind the 2015-16 run of stories, so he could [[TrumanShowPlot sell Howard's exploits as a reality show]]. In-between, as resembling Howard's OrphanedSeries he'd spend years without doing anything ("Your life was the equivalent of [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy a post-credits cameo!]]"), Mojo would film scripted scenes between [[Film/HowardTheDuck Lea Thompson and someone in a duck costume]].

* ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'' started a massive wave of self-referential, teen-focused horror films that ran through the [[TheNineties late '90s]].
** Prior to ''Scream'', Wes Craven's initial flirtations with postmodern horror produced ''Film/WesCravensNewNightmare''.
