* ''Film/WreckItRalph'', naturally, has plenty of these. For example, Tapper heading off to serve some customers is rendered as gameplay taken from the first level of ''Tapper'', and the end credits feature Ralph and Vanellope in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''.

That moment when, in a live-action film, anime, comic strip or other non-video game medium, one suddenly gets video game graphics for a scene. Can be either meant as a self-ironic joke, a would-be profound comment, or for purposes of narrative distantiation. If it's PlayedStraight, it's WatchingAVideoGame. Sometimes, instead of getting video game-like graphics, the show starts to briefly follow video game rules or use a video game-like display.

* In the ''KickButtowski'' episode "Battle for the 'Snax", Kick's attempts to lead a crowd to Gunther's restaurant features a progress bar on top of the screen, and a graphic reading "Angry Crowd!" flashing near the end. Another episode, "Not Without My Cereal", has Kick chasing his sister, Brianna, through a supermarket, and the animation turns 8-bit as Kick tries to avoid shopping carts. As Kick is hit by two shopping carts, the animation goes back to normal.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheWhiteChamber'' has a section where you're sucked into a retro gaming system, with everything pixellated to 8-bit (and it's possible to die). When it ends, it has no effect on the plot apart from your character deciding not to do that again.
