** In the Season 5 premier, the gang discusses the disastrous final season of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', and how Zach Braff only returned for a handful of episodes. Troy reacts angrily to this, and calls Braff a "Son of a bitch" for bailing on the show after it made him famous. In real life, it had been announced that [[Music/ChildishGambino Donald Glover]] (Troy's actor) was leaving the show five episodes into the season in order to focus on his rap career, which made the line a bit of good-natured SelfDeprecatingHumor.

* On ''Series/SportsNight'', Robert Guillaume's real-life stroke was written into the story line as a stroke suffered by his character, executive producer Isaac Jaffee. This led to some very emotional scenes upon his return. Likewise, the on-screen portrayal of ExecutiveMeddling throughout season 2, was almost certainly Aaron Sorkin's somewhat pissy reaction to the same. The latter theme would reappear in ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip''.

* One can feel the influence of [[spoiler:the 2011 great earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan]] on certain parts of ''Anime/YourName''. It's no coincidence that the TimeSkip at the last part is 5 years [[spoiler:at least from Taki's perspective]], just like [[spoiler:5 years passed between the great earthquake in 2011 and the film's release in 2016.]]

** Mitsuha's SmallTownBoredom and desire to move to Tokyo reflect the gradual dying-off of rural Japan as their young move away to urban areas.
** The novelisation has an exclusive scene where, after the Shinto ritual, Mitsuha and Yotsuha have to entertain some guests and they note afterwards that the party was full of elderly, most likely a jab at the silver tsunami Japan's facing.

* ''Broken Gate'' has a rather upsetting case of this that the authoress candidly reveals in a note at the end of the final chapter, where she mentions [[spoiler: and her relatives (a family of nine, the which included an older brother) once lived together in her home, where, after some time of living stably and accommodating, it turned turned into something of an abusive situation, which took a ''terrible'' toll on her mental health (to the point where she implies that she's contemplated suicide). Eventually, she got him out of her home but she had to resort to using a restraining order.]] She goes onto mention how she didn't want to resort to that and wishes things could have been different and how she based the story and characters off of her own experiences.
* According to the authoress, the "Sometimes, its more than the person that dies" line in ''Turning the Hands of Time, Part I'' of the ''Literature/MadgieWhatDidYouDo'' series came from the fact that the story was written either some time around or after her maternal grandmother had passed and that, afterwards, she found it hard to remember her since, recalling certain things about her briefly and vaguely.

** ''Babylon 5'' enjoyed that sort of thing. WordOfGod is that Mr. Garibaldi's occasional speeches in favor of the death penalty were put in because actor Jerry Doyle is a fervent supporter of capital punishment in real life.

** Likewise, Anno later recovered and eventually entered into a happy marriage. It's widely believed that his new lease on life was responsible for the comparatively upbeat and optimistic tone of the first two ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' movies.
