* The second season of ''[[Series/TheLibrarians2014 The Librarians]]'' introduces the concept of Fictionals, which are fictional characters brought into the real world either with a spell, or, more rarely, by their sheer popularity being enough to literally bring them up off the page. In any case, they remain bound by the rules of their story, and cannot be killed in any way unbefitting of their character. The main villains of the season happen to be two evil ones [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare's]] [[Theatre/TheTempest Prospero]] and [[Franchise/SherlockHolmes Moriarty]].

* ''Anime/PhantasyStarOnline2'': [[spoiler:Aika]] is this. It's just not readily apparent given that [[spoiler:she has a cover story involving claiming to be a student from overseas and she otherwise blends in with the rest of the cast.]] There's also a little playing in that [[spoiler:she can move between her home dimension and Earth's dimension at will, which allows her to take care of a universe-ending threat that ''also'' found its way outside of her home dimension.]]

* In ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'', [[spoiler:you are this. Thanks to a video game made by Earthlings connecting Earth to the home dimension of the PlayerCharacter and pals, you are able to use the video game, ''[[CelebrityParadox Phantasy Star Online 2]]'', to travel to Earth. Of course, your job there is strictly business, since most time spent there involves [[ItMakesSenseInContext beating the crap out of evil manifestations of Earthling animate and inanimate objects]] [[TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse in Tokyo.]]]]

(The forces of good get [[ComicBook/TransformersShatteredGlass Shattered Glass]] Ravage, created by the strip's author, in return.)

* In ''HauntedJunction'' [[MonsterOfTheWeek the ghost of a mangaka who worked himself to death]] conjures up his comics characters: giant robot warriors, magical girls and, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking worst of all]], some mind-numbingly boring historical characters from an educational comic he made.

* ''VideoGame/StayTooned'' subverts this trope. The player's remote (with the push of a BigRedButton) allows several cartoons to escape the TV, but in the process also turns the entire apartment building into cartoon form.

* ''[[Literature/MaryPoppins Mary Poppins in the Park]]'' has a variation, in which three fairy-tale princes and their unicorn meet Jane and Michael. They claim to have a book about the people of Cherry Tree Lane, which they use as a PortalBook to the park once every generation (London time). Unfortunately, when most of the children the princes meet over the years become adults, they seem to forget meeting the trio.

* The Groovie Goolies used this in a memorable if freaky sequence. The bratty Hauntleroy has stolen Wolfie's guitar and flees into 'Mad Mirror Land', where all four characters (Including Drac and Frankie) get turned into live-action versions, still operating by cartoon laws, for the most part. It was originally part of a seriously weird, not-so-hot crossover with the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, and then was re-edited for syndication as a separate episode. Original, B&W : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIP36Rc_CIo / Reedit color : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqxaJbMqZUA
