* This is actually canon within the world of {{Series/''Heroes''}}. Isaac Mendez is a precog who's visions come out through his artwork. He created a comic book 9th Wonders which contains much of the plot of the first few seasons.

** The "Threeboot" version of the Legion of Superheroes was originally presented as the taking place in the altered future of the DCU just as previous versions had been. In this version, the Legion was shown to have gotten their inspiration from 20th/21st century comic books featuring Superman, Batman, etc. Legion of Three Worlds revealed they were actually the future of Earth Prime, not the main DC Earth.

Often overlaps with DirectLineToTheAuthor. Because there seems to be some confusion between RecursiveCanon and DirectLineToTheAuthor, the distinction is as follows:

* Creator/HideoKojima's ''VisualNovel/{{Policenauts}}'' is referenced in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' in a poster in Otacon's lab, where it is implied in one scene that ''Policenauts'' is an anime that Otacon watches. Nobody seems to bring up the fact that Meryl Silverburgh has the same name, likeness, and occupation of a character in ''Policenauts''.

* One ''Series/NowhereMan'' episode involved the GovernmentConspiracy created a television show based on the main character's life, named after the show with almost shot-for-shot recreations, but with [[StylisticSuck bad acting and camera work]], and it even got to the point where they were filming real time what was happening, in a subversion of {{PostModernism}}, where he had to do things out of character in order to defeat their plans.

* 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 television sets in the background of some of the clips playing the original cartoon.

** The [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs second movie]] also had it's own Sound Stages and commentary where it was shown to be an in-universe movie. But wait, it gets ''weird''. Before the second movie was released there was another Drama CD, ''Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha GOD Sound Stage M'', set in the AlternateTimeline of the ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable'' video games. In it, the OriginalGeneration characters introduced in those games encounter the versions of Fate and Nanoha from the first movie. In short, the movie timeline seems to actually exist.

It's nature as recursive canon even helps to justify Graham and his familiars being AdaptedOut, since [[spoiler: it wouldn't make any sense for TSAB propaganda to show a high ranking officer condemning an innocent girl to an eternal icy prison.]]
