** Even older, ''Bless This House'' featured Sid James (of ''Franchise/CarryOn'' fame) as Sid Abbot, and Sally Gleeson as Sally Abbot. Plus, the 1972 feature film version contains a meta-''aversion'' (by virtue of the fact that it became a notable example later): Creator/TerryScott and June Whitfield played new neighbours Ronald and Vera Baines -- the first outing of (and virtually identical to) the on-screen couple that would later make them a Britcom cliché (see ''Terry and June'' above).

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' has a coincidental example with Solid Snake's real name of "David", which happens to be the first name of his English voice actor, David Hayter. In reality, the name "David" was already decided during the Japanese voice recording, which was completed before the English voice actor for Snake was even chosen. It actually came from the main character in ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'', as well as Meryl Silverburgh's partner from ''VisualNovel/{{Policenauts}}''.
