* ''[[http://www.novelupdates.com/series/dungeon-hunter/ Dungeon Hunter:]]'' A Dungeon Master demon gets transported back in time in order to prevent Earth and human civilisation from being destroyed, to kill the other 70 Dungeon Masters, and to become the Demon King. All creatures and monsters in this story have their stat points spread out between Strength, Intelligence, Agility, Stamina, and Magic Power. The total number of base points can not surpass a certain amount, which is different for each creature and is referred to as their maximal potential. For demons, for instance, it’s generally 500, so a demon with 100 base stat points in each category would be at peak of their potential. Aside from the base points, the strength of a creature is also determined by their Titles, Skills, and artefacts. All of these are graded in tiers (Normal→Rare→Unique→Epic) and can grant additional bonus points to the creature’s attributes. These bonus points can help the creature surpass the limitations of its basic potential and greatly improve in power, because after the 90–100pts each single point can make a big difference in power and capabilities. Dungeon Masters can also collect Spending Points in various ways (e.g. by killing “Awakened” humans, killing creatures created in Dungeons of other Masters, killing other Dungeon Masters, completing Achievements, etc) and use these points to obtain monsters or items either through the Dungeon’s interface or during Auctions, which are being organised once a year by dark spirits. Demons don’t die with the destruction of their Dungeon, and Dungeons can be conquered after their previous owner’s elimination. Dimensions featured in the story include Earth, Demon World, Heaven, and “Middle World”.

* In ''WebVideo/{{PATHCO}}'' Barry, the ghost haunting Apollyon's shoes, [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall speaks this way when asked for advice]]. None of the other characters have any clue what he's on about.

* In ''Webcomic/DragonMango'', the universe frequently functions similarly to a video game with frequent references to stats, HitPoints, item drops, {{Character Level}}s, {{Save Point}}s, and an ArbitraryHeadcountLimit, though they are treated more like gags than consistent rules.

** They also sometimes measure time in [[MediumAwareness "strips"]], and make direct references to "this comic". That's right -- they're not just [[MediumAwareness aware they're in an RPG]], they're aware they're in a comic strip that's ''set'' in an RPG. One character (the thief) even stole the diamond off her cast page entry when they needed some cash.

* ''LightNovel/KonoSubarashiiSekaiNiShukufukuO'': Kazuma's new world runs on this principle, down to its denizens' abilities being gauged by certain parameters (such as Kazuma's ridiculously high Luck and Aqua's crippling deficiency thereof).

* ''Fanfic/ShinobiTheRPG'' is a ''Manga/Naruto'' self-insert, but the main character, Daisuke, has the abilities of a ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' character.

* ''Fanfic/TheSwarmOfWar'' contains a minor example, with the Zerg capable of absorbing the LifeEnergy of their kills to evolve into stronger forms. Later, the Overmind designs a device that can make an entire planet work according to ''Franchise/StarCraft'' rules (conveniently placed resource points and spawn times in the seconds to minutes, that is)... '''very''' temporarily due to the steep cost.

* Played for laughs in the late, lamented ''{{RPG World}}'' webcomic, which runs on console RPG rules. Cherry was the only character who consistently seemed bewildered by the characters not wondering why numbers appeared over their heads when they were injured in battle, etc.

* Jeffrey C. Wells's "[[https://scrivnarium.wordpress.com/category/writings/serials/the-proving-grounds/ The Proving Grounds]]", is set in a D&D world. One of the main characters is an intellect devourer who was summoned into existence when he got rolled up on the Wandering Monster Table, and didn't exist prior to this.

By the same author, "Video Game People Do Not Act Like Normal People" (parts [[https://scrivnarium.wordpress.com/2016/06/30/video-game-people-do-not-act-like-normal-people-3/ one]], [[https://scrivnarium.wordpress.com/2016/07/31/video-game-people-do-not-act-like-normal-people-2-2/ two]] and [[https://scrivnarium.wordpress.com/2016/11/30/video-game-people-do-not-act-like-normal-people-3-2/ three]]) is set in a world that operates by RPG video game rules, although the player character is the only person who realises this, and her companions are continually baffled both by her actions and the fact they ''work''.
