* In Creator/TexAvery's ''[[WesternAnimation/TexAveryMGMCartoons The Early Bird Dood It!]]'', a bird chases a worm down a road and briefly pauses to examine a billboard advertising the film ''[[Film/MrsMiniver Mrs. Minimum]]'' with an added attraction -- the very cartoon they're in!
-->'''Bird:''' Say, I hear that's a pretty funny cartoon.
-->'''Worm:''' [[SelfDeprecation Well, I hope it's funnier than]] ''[[SelfDeprecation this]]'' [[SelfDeprecation one!]]

* ''Film/{{SWAT}}'' has a scene where the unit has the day off. In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it gag, Boxer is sacked out on his sofa watching a rerun of ''Series/{{SWAT}}'', the TV series the movie is based on.

* ''Manga/FrankenFran'' has a surgeon refuse to deal with Fran, [[BodyHorror as he knows what happens when she gets involved in surgery]]. How does he know? Because he read the previous volumes of the manga (pulling out one to show her).

* In both ''ComicBook/SpirouAndFantasio'' and ''ComicBook/GastonLagaffe'', the characters work on the staff of the magazine that publishes their adventures, ''Journal de Spirou'' (later ''Spirou Magazine'', now simply ''Spirou''). Consequently, the comic exists within its own world, and Spirou is occasionally recognized as its hero. In early stories by Jijé he would meet members of his own fan club, and in ''Alerte aux Zorkons'' a sniper refuses to fire on him and Fantasio (hanging from a Spirou-shaped advertising balloon) because he used to read the comic as a kid.

** ''Anime/DigimonUniverseApplimonsters'' takes a slightly similar approach, though theirs is more of a halfway example. This universe has digital monsters in it, but they're a new variety called ''Appmon'' and are based on smart phone applications as well as having their own way of evolving into differently-named higher forms. We find out in a 20th anniversary, however, that a fictional Digimon ''video game'' by the title of [[TitleDrop "Digimon Universe"]] exists, and that the main character played it when he was younger. The plot of the game seems to mirror that of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', and when Agumon is brought to life from the game, his role is reprised by Creator/ChikaSakamoto.

** All Marvels Comics published before 2001 carry the Comics Code Authority seal. The CCA is a federal agency in the Marvel universe, making all these comics legal, federal documents. [[MythologyGag Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway]], the law firm She-Hulk works for, specializes in superhuman, metahuman and mutant law, keeps a complete archive of Marvels Comics from the 1930s forward as legal reference.

*All this is the result of Marvel's evolving approach to the fourth wall. In early Silver Age comics, especially the ComicBook/FantasticFour, the comics referred to in the books really did seem to be the same ones you were holding in your hand, with Stan Lee and Jack Kirby making cameos fairly often and the stories supposedly being retellings of events related by the characters (helped by the FF not having secret identities), heightening the sense that Marvel comics took place in the "world outside your window". This became untenable as time went on, eventually being replaced by the modern "Marvels comics" concept; as late as 1984's "Assistant Editors' Month" event some stories still seemed to pay lip service to the notion that Marvel comics literally existed in the Marvel universe, but by the late 80s ''ComicBook/DamageControl'' depicted She-Hulk as breaking the fourth wall as she did in her solo book at the time, but that everyone else thought she was crazy for thinking she was a comic book character.

* The ending of ''VideoGame/SecretOfEvermore'' suggests that the entire game was just the result of the main character [[MrImagination daydreaming]] after going out to see a movie called "The Secret of Evermore". [[spoiler:But a mysterious spark of electricity around the theater marquee throws that into question, coupled with the following scene showing the previous citizens of Podunk he rescued, preparing to return to their lives outside of Evermore.]]

* ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' pushes new boundaries for this trope. There are four separate webcomics, or "adventures", on the site: ''Webcomic/{{Jailbreak}}'', ''Bard Quest'', ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'', and ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. There's also an entity known as the Midnight Crew. The relationship between the five is [[MindScrew a little complicated, to say the least]].

** Seeing as Creator/CartoonNetwork often depicted its show's characters as living in one big SharedUniverse, it seems like this was bound to happen at some point.
