* The BigBad of ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'', after they reveal themselves, proves to be a {{Yandere}} for the player. Not the PlayerCharacter. ''The player''. [[spoiler:Monika ends up being a video game character that GrewBeyondTheirProgramming, and is trying to take over the game world and make the rest of the girls worse by comparison, playing up their negative traits and making herself look good.]] To this end, the BigBad will refer to a player by their real name (by reading your computer's data), and also seems to be aware if they're being recording for a LetsPlay.

* ''Videogame/Persona5'' uses this to extremely creepy effect: In the opening of the game, a deep-voiced person presents you with a ThisIsAWorkOfFiction disclaimer and asks whether you agree to it: Saying "Yes" starts the game while [[ButThouMust saying "No" boots you back to the start screen"]]. [[spoiler: During the climax, it's revealed that the person with the deep voice is the BigBad and part of his endgame is to erase the heroes from existence by convincing the world to deny that they're real. By accepting the disclaimer, you unwittingly helped him do it.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'': The Skull of Dire Ahamkara, an Exotic Warlock helmet. Every piece of [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Ahamkara]] gear communicates with it's Guardian, addressing them as "[[CatchPhrase Oh Bearer Mine]]", and seem to be at least partially [[EmpathicWeapon sentient]]. Then, there's the Skull...
--> '''Skull Of Dire Ahamkara:''' "O BEARER MINE." What kind of talking skull would address its host that way? A stiff, stuck-up old fossil, not me. Ahamkara: the illusion that one's ego depends on an object, or an idea, or a body. Some people say you should have no ahamkara. Some people say you need to have the right ahamkara. All I know is that YOU are not an illusion. Understand? This world around you, the people you meet—they're a little thin, right? Cardboard and drywall. Cheap theater. Come on, try it out! Say: “I am more real than this.” Feels good, doesn't it? “I am the only real person here.” Isn't it like their insults and their bullets just went a little... soft? I came to find you, only you, because you're special. You're from somewhere real. And together we can burn our way back there. Can't we, [[spoiler: o player mine]]?

* The 2017 ''Clue'' miniseries ends with practically an OverlyLongGag of this: [[spoiler: After Mr. Boddy/Dr. Black [[TheBadGuyWins succeeds]] in the plan that required him FakingTheDead, he orders his butler Upton -- who has been serving as the omniscient narrator -- to LeaveNoWitnesses. Upton ensures this by ''climbing out of the comic'' and proceeding to '''''kill the entire production staff''''' of the comic one by one. And ''then'', in the final panel, he informs the reader that they're next.]]

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E13JourneysEnd "Journey's End"]] Davros created the Reality Bomb, which would destroy "every universe" destroying literally every single thing in all of reality, excluding the Daleks. Hey, don't we live within a universe somewhere? Good thing the Doctor got there in time.

* During an interview for the 2016 Film/{{Deadpool2016}} movie, Creator/RyanReynolds (Deadpool's actor) is talking with the host about whether the movie will be rated PG-13 ("family friendly") or R. The host talks about how great it is that the studio is leaning towards the former and then ''Deadpool himself'' walks on camera and punches the host's lights out. Considering what [[MediumAwareness Deadpool is capable of]] he should have seen that coming. [[note]] Yes, it's really Ryan Reynolds in costume [[/note]]

* In-universe, [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Peorth]] is watching a porn video staring Urd in ''[[http://anime.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600055428&chapter=2 The Vain Rose's Garden]]'' when Urd turns to the camera and says, "Having fun, Peorth?" She then approaches the camera, and comes out of the television.

* An unusual one in the FanFic/TaylorVarga (A Literature/{{Worm}} fanfic on Spacebattles) where one of the characters with the username Void Cowboy posted ''in the story thread itself''! This was quickly followed by several other characters such as Tin Mother (an in-story secret AI), Armsmaster and a couple of others including the story-specific Ianthe. Several of these characters have since posted on other threads, thus spreading the meta.
* In ''Webcomic/DoctorWhoRegenerated'' Daisy makes a drawing of a [[Series/DoctorWho Weeping Angel]]. Then, in blissful ignorance, she [[spoiler: uploads it into the Internet, where it apparently takes on a life of its own, as images of the Angels are wont to do]]. [[NightmareFuel Sleep tight]].

* At first, "Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo to Koi" seems like an ordinary Romance Eroge. You decide to go through Miyuki's route, you reach the end, and get a happy ending. Then you decide to go down the other girl, Aoi's route. And then you reach her ending. [[spoiler: After you have sex with Aoi, she and her cat are murdered by Miyuki, who has become self-aware. After breaking all of the main characters limbs, she starts talking directly to the player, telling you that by trying to complete Aoi's route, you've cheated on her, and now she's gonna make you pay. So she murders the main character (who she knows is just an avatar being controlled by the player) and calls "God", telling them to do something to a game. And then the game closes, is forcefully patched, and reopens to a DOS prompt, before taking you to the main menu. If you try to avoid getting that ending, Miyuki tells you that because of the patch, you can't reset the game OR load any previous save files, and exiting results in TV static and creepy distorted laughter before the game is closed. Sweet dreams...]]



** Alleged "dragon-tier" cheapies also count, but in a '''very serious, literal way.''' There exists a sort of arms race between MUGEN creators for the most powerful character, and mere {{One Hit KO}}s do not even cut it anymore: cheapies oftentimes essentially hack MUGEN or even '''create their own MUGEN''' to ensure they beat the opponent. The culmination of the Cheapie War is "dragon-type" characters, said to be potent computer viruses disguised as characters, who will take down the opponent... and your PC alongside it. However, most of these characters (if they exist at all) are prvate. Probably the most well-known supposed Dragon-tier in MUGEN is "Mathrus", and even then exceedingly little is known other than that it supposedly cuts a computer's internet connection. Only [[http://utsuhofanboy24000.deviantart.com/art/R-I-P-527509707 one]] alleged photograph of "Mathrus" exists, according to which it seems appear as a [[Franchise/{{Warcraft}} Felhound]].
