* ''While the TV series ''Supernatural'' doesn't exist within ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', there is a series of in-universe novels that is identical to the TV show in every other way, with each novel corresponding to a similarly titled episode. 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. This sometimes allows the characters to find out information by 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.]]

* This is unintentionally done in ''Film/JemAndTheHolograms'', since it seems that TheyJustDidntCare. In some of the clips they use of Jem's fans (which are taken out of context; the fans were talking about the [[WesternAnimation/{{Jem}} original cartoon]], not the pop star in the film), you can see TVs in the background of some of the clips playing the original cartoon.

** 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.
