* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', Scarecrow's fear toxin messes with the 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 UI, making the wrong name appear when entering a room ("[[spoiler:Wayne Manor]]"), and the third sequence makes your game appear to ''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 and the Joker have switched places...]]
* In the E3 trailer for ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', the video starts to glitch out near the end. By the time that the viewer could rule it out as a video streaming problem, Scarecrow is then shown staring at the viewer and taunting them as if they were Batman.

** ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamVR'' sees its Riddler sidequest have the Riddler challenge the player directly, rather than
Batman.

* An in-movie example happens at the beginning of ''Film/{{Demoni}} 2'' (''Demons 2'' in English), when a young girl watches a movie about a ZombieApocalypse caused by [[TheVirus virulent]] DemonicPossession, a demon inside the TV pushes its way out into the real world and turns her, triggering a new outbreak. It seems just like a gimmick at first, but then [[spoiler:[[FridgeHorror you realise YOU'RE watching the same kind of movie she was...]]]]

* In ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch'', the Gremlins break out of the movie and assault the projectionist, forcing them to run other movies. They are eventually stopped by HulkHogan and the movie proper resumes. When the movie was released to video, the sequence was changed to the Gremlins breaking into the TV and being defeated by StockFootage of JohnWayne. The theatrical version with Hulk Hogan is restored for the DVD release.

** Disneyland's version of ''Snow White's Scary Adventures'' at first makes it seem as if you're just a mere observer of the famous story unfolding... until, towards the middle of the ride, the Evil Queen offers ''you'' the poisoned apple.



** One of the oldest examples is the final stretch of "Ride/TheHauntedMansion", when the LemonyNarrator warns of the ghosts coming home with you uninvited just before passing mirrors which reflect ghosts sitting in the cars beside passengers. In the newest update to the Florida version of the ride, one of the effects has you look into the mirror to see the "hitchhiking ghost" ''pull your head off and exchange it for his.''

* Tactile effects are popular in 3-D attractions (often labelled "4-D"). ''{{Shrek}} 4-D'' at Universal Studios and ''Borg Invasion'' in the (now closed) ''Franchise/StarTrek Experience'' in UsefulNotes/LasVegas are two more examples.
* The ending of the [[Ride/ETAdventure E.T. Adventure]] ride has E.T. acknowledging each of the riders ''by name''.
* ''Ride/DespicableMeMinionMayhem'' has a scene where Gru scans the audience for germs, only to detect a group that hasn't showered in days. He then shows a clip of a random group of guests on the screen.

* In the obvious parody of the "Twilight" saga, ''Film/VampiresSuck'' ends the movie with a crazed werewolf fangirl (read: girl who is a fan of werewolves) strikes [[spoiler: Vampire!]]Bella in the back of the head with a shovel. As Bella gets up, the fangirl gives a much appropriate OhCrap before the camera goes to her POV as Bella attacks her and the audience.
* In strictly-POV movie ''Film/Unfriended'', after it's revealed that [[spoiler:Blaire was the one who posted the video that eventually caused Laura Barns to commit suicide]], Blaire's bedroom door squeaks open and two sets of fingers wrap over her laptop. [[spoiler:It's the undead body of Laura Barns, closing the laptop and lunging at the screen.]] Cue credits.



* Some characters in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' break the fourth wall during their victory poses. Some of them are friendly (like Kitana, who blows a kiss to the player) but others, like Mileena, tend to be ''very'' threatening.

This trope can be done far more effectively in {{VideoGame}}s due to the interactivity of the medium, especially on computers where it's easy for the game to [[ParanoiaFuel directly refer to the player by account names]] or execute this trope in the most literal fashion by actually attacking harming the machine, as demonstrated by VideoGame/{{Imscared}}, or preserving information beyond replays and reinstalls, most famously shown by VideoGame/{{Undertale}}.
