* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Whether done intentionally or as the result of an animation error, a shot at the end of "Bridle Gossip" shows Pinkie Pie [[https://derpibooru.org/596339 staring at the camera]]. Naturally, this resulted in common {{Fanon}} that Pinkie is a FourthWallObserver.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', Krile's battle sprite has her eyes permanently fixed on the camera as opposed to facing the monsters like the rest of the party. Given that Krile is FriendToAllLivingThings with supernatural sensitivity, it might be that she's aware of the player.

A specific form of BreakingTheFourthWall accomplished merely by looking directly at the camera. Usually done by accident, by amateur actors who happen to notice a camera is pointed at them. The trouble here is that the editor didn't catch it, allowing the character to make eye contact with the audience. Typically a film or live TV trope, especially in dramas.

** A particularly painful example is when Tom Baker makes clear accidental eye contact with the camera in "The Deadly Assassin" during a sequence where the camera is doing a [[BinocularShot shot from the POV of a sniper scope]], making it seem like the Doctor has spotted the sniper and ''completely'' changing the intended interpretation of the scene.

** Creator/TomBaker was particularly prone to this, to the point where it's a bad-acting habit associated with him in the same way that Creator/WilliamHartnell is associated with line flubbing (though not to the same extent) - and since he has very unusual and piercing eyes it can suck you right out of a scene. See the scene at the start of Episode 2 of "Planet of Evil" where, in a scene focused on Sarah talking, Baker accidentally makes eye contact with the camera and breaks it off as soon as he realises what he's doing. A particularly painful example is when Tom Baker makes clear accidental eye contact with the camera in "The Deadly Assassin" during a sequence where the camera is doing a [[BinocularShot shot from the POV of a sniper scope]], making it seem like the Doctor has spotted the sniper and ''completely'' changing the intended interpretation of the scene.scene. Of course, later on, sometimes it's intentional AsideGlance - a Fourth Doctor quirk that may have developed out of Baker's bad habit.

** Soldeed in "The Horns of Nimon" accidentally makes eye contact with the camera while overacting his way through the script. Likely an artifact of the serial's [[BottleEpisode cheap production]] and a side effect of HamAndCheese.
