* In an OlderThanTheyThink example, ''Film/ReeferMadness'' closes with Dr. Carroll, ostensibly addressing a meeting of concerned citizens, saying:
--> "We must work untiringly so that our children are obliged to learn the truth. Because it is only through knowledge that we can safely protect them. Failing this, the next tragedy may be that of ''[looks to his right]'' your daughter....or ''[looks to his left]'' your son....''[points right]'' or yours....''[points left]'' or yours....''[points into the camera]'' or ''yours!''

* The Russian kidnapper in ''Videogame/WelcomeToTheGame'' can hear the player through their microphone. Which means that in addition to turning off the lights, you have to be quiet when he is around.

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', the game appears to CRASH at one point to mess with your head, just to get a taste of how Batman must be feeling when he's getting pumped full of Scarecrow toxin.
** Also, if you get killed by Killer Croc one of the game over sequences shows him saying "I will enjoy feasting on your bones" then he lunges forward and devours the camera.

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', Scarecrow's fear toxin messes with the game appears to CRASH at one point to mess player directly as well as Batman, and the only warning you get before your drug trip hits is a single cough from Batman that you might not even notice. The second fear toxin sequence messes with your head, just UI, making the wrong name appear when entering a room ("[[spoiler:Wayne Manor]]"), and the third sequence makes your game appear to get a taste of how ''glitch up and '''crash''''', and then reboot to the opening cutscene, apparently having wiped your save data (a great fear for any gamer). [[spoiler:Then you see that Batman must be feeling when he's getting pumped full of Scarecrow toxin.

* ''TanzDerVampire'' includes several moments where vampires appear in the auditorium, with the audience. And the closing number is them essentially declaring that you're next, which would be pretty creepy if it weren't actually the ''upside'' of a DownerEnding.

* {{Henrik Ibsen}} used this trope once, in his play Theatre/ThePretenders written 1864. The main {{manipulative bastard}} of the play returns to tempt the loser antagonist at the end of the play, telling him that he has one last offer for him. He also tells that the devil assigned him to "look after" Norway, and implies that he is still around - and that last one is aimed at the audience. He is there to assure that Norway screws up, it is his job, and he ''will'' do it.

** This is first suggested after the player gets past Toriel. Many players are aware that it is possible to either kill or spare monsters in this game, but do not want to harm Toriel. If a player does kill her, a common response is to quit, reload, and try again until they succeed in sparing her. [[spoiler:If you do this, Flowey will call you out on it, saying that while no one else may remember, HE knows what you did, and just because you reset the game for a do-over doesn't erase what happened.]]
** [[spoiler:Flowey hijacks the game during a standard playthrough, saving over your file, messing with the intro and Game Over screens, and even abusing SaveScumming during his boss battle to have another try at hitting you with an attack or resetting things if he loses.]]

* Imaginee is capable of this in WebAnimation/TheAutisticWorldOfTheAutist, as shown in the HalloweenSpecial where he [[MindRape mind raped]] the audience. Probably one of the only things in the show that make him terrifying.

* As seen during docfuture's LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2SpecialEdition'', Tails has such advanced AI that he remembers if you mistreat him and will resent you for it. Not Sonic, ''you'', the player. He also banters with docfuture during the game and even has some "protips" that seem aimed at those watching the LP online.

** Subverted in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', where Psycho Mantis temporarily comes BackFromTheDead. He attempts the same trick... On a PS3. In other words, there's no memory card and the original controller didn't vibrate. Naturally, good old PM [[OhCrap doesn't take it well]] [[note]]If you happen to be using a Dualshock 3 controller instead of a Sixaxis, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything the psychokinesis does work and PS remarks how vibration is back.]][[/note]].
