* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': Rick builds a battery for his car that contains a tiny universe. In the universe, a sentient species evolves and Rick introduces them to electricity by doing an ancient aliens schtick, and then siphons off their grid to produce real-world electricity. The battery stops working when a Rick-like scientist from that world (played by Stephen Colbert) invents a similar sub-universe battery. There is another scientist in the sub-sub-universe that is working on his own sub-sub-sub-universe.

** The ''Rick and Morty'' creators seem to be fans of this trope. Comes up again in ''M. Night Shaym-aliens'': Rick, Morty and Jerry are captured by Zigerian scammers and placed in a simulation, inside a simulation, [[spoiler:inside of another simulation]].

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' uses the fourth type for the episode "City On The Edge Of Forever." In the end, it turns out that Stan has emotional problems, so he, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny (who didn't technically die this time) go for ice cream. The end.

*** In the show, there is a GenderBender {{fanfiction}} called "Fiona and Cake", mostly written by Ice King, but other characters have added to it. Occasionally there are episodes depicting this. According to the episode "Five Short Tables", the Ice Queen writes genderbending fanfiction called "Flint the Human and Jacques the Racoon." In THAT fanfiction, the Ice President writes fanfiction about "Lynn the Person and Janet the Fox."

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': One terminal document is an e-mail from Alexandra Drennan explaining to the IAN team her idea of creating the simulation. This e-mail includes some hex codes, which when translated to ASCII indicate that the game engine the simulation is based upon is the "Serious Engine 7.5, which Croteam have kindly made available to us." ''The Talos Principle'' was made using Croteam's Serious Engine 4.

* Todd Haynes' BobDylan biopic ''Film/ImNotThere'' uses a form of this to analyze Dylan's ever-changing personality by having him [[MindScrew played by five different actors]] ([[CateBlanchett and one actress]]), each of whom's story is depicted in a different genre and visual style. Creator/ChristianBale's Bob Dylan expy has his story done in documentary style, and his character was played by HeathLedger's Dylan in an in-universe BioPic. An image of a young Bale appears in a high school yearbook of the CateBlanchett Dylan, implying that her story is another movie-within-a-movie (or perhaps a drug-induced hallucination), supported by the fact that her segment is shot in the style of [[Creator/FedericoFellini Fellini's]] EightAndAHalf. Richard Gere, playing Billy the Kid, is antagonized by Pat Garrett, played by [[ActingForTwo the same actor]] who plays a reporter who harasses Blanchett, implying that the entire story take place within her mind. [[MindScrew And that's only four of them]]... Several of the stories seem to exist within the minds of one Dylan or parallel to the events of another.

* A short ''ComicBook/DarkwingDuck'' comic published in an issue of DisneyAdventures (titled "Cogito Ergo Something") has Launchpad holding up a dandelion and positing the existence of countless Recursive Realities to Darkwing. Sure enough, the perspective changes, and we see another world inside the dandelion seed where an alien Launchpad is presumably saying the same thing to an alien Darkwing about an alien flower. Then the perspective changes to inside the alien flower, and we see the "normal" world again ([[MindScrew inside the inside]]), where Darkwing promptly blows the whole idea off as nonsense and blows the dandelion seeds to the wind.
