** Series creator Creator/ShojiKawamori [[WordOfGod has gone on to say that]] ''all the Anime/Macross stories'' are merely second-hand retellings of real events that happened in-universe, mostly to explain the differences apparent in, say, the ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' TV series compared to the movies that followed it. This has some interesting implications for ''Frontier'' in particular, as its movies paint several maligned parties in the TV series in a much more rosier light.

* The anime ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' has [[TheMovie a movie version]], ''[[Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove Do You Remember Love]]'', which the producers later explained away as a propaganda video made by UN Spacy to portray the events of the TV series in a better light. The deaths of certain characters are made far more heroic, the love triangle made far more romantic, and in general, UN Spacy comes out smelling a lot better than in the TV series.

* The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' films exist in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' universe as a retelling of actual events. Cartoon Peter Venkman notes that Creator/BillMurray looks nothing like him. Toys from the TV series, however, show up in ''Ghostbusters II'' and the video game, which is noted as {{canon}} to the movies. So the cartoon is a retelling of events in the movies which is a retelling of events in the cartoon which is--oh dear, I've gone crosseyed.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has a variation: while the TV series ''Supernatural'' doesn't exist within ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', there is a series of in-universe novels that is basically identical to the TV show in every way other than format, right up to the novel titles being the same as the episode titles. This allows for a whole heap of [[FandomNod meta episodes]], but also has significant plot relevance, as the in-universe explanation is that the writer of the series is a prophet who wrote the series based on his visions. In particular, this alows the characters to sometimes find out information by the handy tactic of asking the author himself. [[spoiler:In another twist, at the end of season 5 it's implied that ''Supernatural'''s author was quite literally [[WordOfGod God]] in disguise all along.]]

** In season 10, the characters find themselves investigating events surrounding a play, which is basically a musical slashfic of the novels.

* Somewhat overlapping with DirectLineToTheAuthor, the "[[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]]" series of ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' fanfics has a RunningGag in which Prince Vince keeps tabs on the events of the stories via his {{Tumblr}} account; the CreatorInJoke is that he follows the author's blog. Accordingly, someone actually ''made'' a Prince Vince RP blog which ''does'' follow the author, and comments on new chapters whenever they're posted.

* In ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga'', they spend an episode trying to reach the top of a 60 floor tower inside the tower they are in. The main hero is controlled by the other characters, as if they are playing the ''TheTowerOfDruaga'' arcade game. One character even has a walkthrough for the tower.
