* The [[http://shifti.org/wiki/Xanadu_(setting) Xanadu storyverse]], in which at a fairly large convention called "[[TitleDrop Xanadu]]" all of the [[BecomingTheCostume costumes become real]]. While most stories focus on weirdness and some on [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furries]], naturally a number of cosplayers were featured, with varying levels of mental change, from "Whoa, suddenly my costume is perfect!" to "Where is this place? Where did my TrueCompanions go?" Two stories have [[RefugeeFromTVLand characters and such from fictional fiction]]; [[http://shifti.org/wiki/Slinx Slinx]], a {{Pokemon}} {{Expy}}, and [[http://shifti.org/wiki/The_Perils_of_Voice_Acting The Perils Of Voice Acting]], a pastiche of He-Man, She-Ra, and other cartoons from that period.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderMan'', in the two-part GrandFinale of TheNineties [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries animated series]]. One of the Spideys of the interdimensional Spider-Man team (led by "our" Spidey) was not Peter Parker, but an actor who played him. In his world, we met Creator/StanLee, voiced by... Stan Lee. He had created Spider-Man for a comic book and was surprised to find that there was a world where his creations were real. He also found Madame Web quite fascinating (she was voiced by Stan's real-life wife, Joan B. Lee.)

* he creators of Buffy, Xena, Adventures of Hercules and Angel LOVE this trope. Each of these series has at least one episode happening in the "real world". Not really sure about Buffy and Angel, but Xena and Hercules even get to keep their powers thorough their respective episodes.

** Actually only two things are sure in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' TV series: Time-travel episode (usually, though not always, to the time when the specific series is being filmed on) and Evil-Verse episode, sometimes to huge extent. For example, Deep Space Nine has several "mirror universe" episodes, and in Enterprise the time travel plot lines are used to such extent as to becoming a major plot point for the series.

* A short story published in the Franchise/StarTrek fanzine ''Spockanalia'', entitled "Visit to a Weird Planet", featured Kirk, Spock, and [=McCoy=] transported to the real world, specifically to the filming of ''Series/StarTrek''.
** Years later, a sequel, "Visit to a Weird Planet Revisited", {{inverted}} the trope. That story has Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, and [=DeForest=] Kelly accidentally transported to the "real" ''Enterprise''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' episode [[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E40TwitchingChannels 'Twitching Channels']], Megavolt invents a device that allows him to travel through electrical wires, appliances, and broadcast signals. He proceeds to use television sets as warp gates to enable easy theft and getaway on a crime spree, which Darkwing must of course put a stop to. In hot pursuit, the two go on [[TrappedInTVLand a chase scene across the channels of TV Land]], and ultimately stumble out of a television set into a world where St. Canard is merely the setting of a popular TV show, and the locals are human beings. It seems a corrupt animation executive has a device that lets him see alternate universes, from which he steals plots for his own shows. Darkwing is (after a little comical blackmail) welcomed with open arms and made a star of the stage, but he ultimately grows bored and wants to go back to where he has real villains to fight. Eventually he goes home, but the device gets damaged. When the animated executive inspects it, it is now fixed to the world of ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''.

** A more recent [[ComicBook/DoctorWhoIDW IDW comic]] written in honor of the 50th anniversary recycled the premise. The Eleventh Doctor travels to an alternate dimension where ''Doctor Who'' is a fictional long running tv show, and he's just a fictional character, most recently played by Creator/MattSmith. During the course of the adventure he gets [[YourCostumeNeedsWork second place in a cosplay contest]], meets fans he's inspired throughout the years, [[NoBudget saves the always budget-less BBC money by letting them film his latest adventure]], and confirms that while Creator/ElisabethSladen may have tragically passed away, [[CharacterOutlivesActor her beloved character Sarah Jane Smith is still very much alive chasing adventures offscreen]].

* ''Anime/SonicX'' would probably count. At the very beginning of the series, Sonic, Eggman, and a whole menagerie of characters from their world are pulled into the explosion of Eggman's base, and end up in what is, for all intents and purposes, the real world. It gets progressively less "real" as the show goes on, however (for example, it turns out that the city Sonic and most of his friends emerged in was Station Square from the ''SonicAdventureSeries'', and later episodes had the two worlds merge in order to adapt both ''Sonic Adventure'' and ''Sonic Adventure 2'').
* Played fairly straight in most ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' continuity-- mostly ''[[Anime/DigimonTamers Tamers]]'', and {{subverted|Trope}} in ''[[Anime/DigimonSavers Savers]]''. The Digimon that appear in the "real world" often suffer a loss in [[PowerLevels power]], but they somehow manage to exist despite being made of data. Also, they can still use special attacks and evolve.
