** In the second case of ''PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', Detective Gumshoe, when asked if he's ever heard of a murder victim writing their killer's name in blood, responds that he's seen it all the time in movies. Phoenix responds with a variation of this trope's title.

* ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'' gives us this gem right after [[spoiler: Sayori's suicide]]:
-->'''Protagonist''': "This isn't some game where I can reset and try something different. I had only one chance, and I wasn't careful enough. And now I'll carry this guilt with me until I die.[...] I can never take it back. [[HeroicBSOD Never. Never. Never. Never. Never...]]"
** However, it is subverted once you actually do ''try'' to go back and undo that outcome and find [[spoiler: that all your save states have been erased and the game has been locked into a glitchy state in which [[RetGone Sayori no longer exists]].]]

* In ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}},'' the BigBad dismisses the idea that the plan he's describing can be stopped by stating that he isn't some "Republic serial villain." No... he's the ''villain of a superhero comic.'' It must be noted that superhero comic books, as a genre, do not exist within the Watchmen fictional universe (or, more exactly, they existed for just a few years in the 1940s, and were largely forgotten by the time being), so it makes sense that the notion of a fictional supervillain may be a bit different. [[Film/{{Watchmen}} The movie]] changes the line to "[[LeaningOnTheFourthWall I'm not a comic book villain.]]"

* ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'': "The End of the Movie" is an entire musical number (sung by Music/JoshGroban) on how real life is nothing like a narrative: people are complex and sometimes make bad decisions for no reason, things aren't always connected to others and aren't always tied together cleverly and sometimes, nothing gets wrapped up neatly (most of the times, in fact, they aren't).
-->Because life is a gradual series of revelations\\
That occur over a period of time\\
Some things might happen that seem connected\\
But there's not always a reason or rhyme\\
People aren't characters\\
They're complicated and their choices don't always make sense

-->'''Spike:''' Our lives, and Red's depend on how well we perform. Unlike Super Mega-Death Massacre III there is no reset button. We get it right or we're out of the game.

-->'''Hermione:''' Where do you come up with these conspiracy theories, Harry? Next you will be talking about how the Minister and his staff are closet Death Eaters, and that one man controls the entire wizarding world from behind the scenes, playing everyone like some demented cross between Stromboli and Rasputin, with a little Svengali thrown in for flavor. Reality does not work like that, only bad novelizations and dramas on the telly.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' when Kim's gamer {{geek}} cousin Larry says he has an idea for dealing with the current sitch: "This isn't one of your stupid science fiction games, Larry! Ron's facing [[FantasyKitchenSink a kung fu mutant with bio-engineered hands, and mystical monkey powers, and]]..." At that point, Kim decides that Larry might be on to something and hands him the Kimmunicator.

* Subverted Hilariously subverted in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' when Kim's gamer {{geek}} cousin Larry says he has an idea for dealing with the current sitch: "This isn't one of your stupid science fiction games, Larry! Ron's facing [[FantasyKitchenSink a kung fu mutant with bio-engineered hands, and mystical monkey powers, and]]..." At that point, Kim decides that Larry might be on to something and hands him the Kimmunicator. Larry's advice to Ron was based on a video game (boiling down to taking the enemy's power to beat him). This leads to Ron to go past Monkey Fist and proceeding to empower himself with Mystic Monkey Magic and thus taking the first step in becoming the Mystica Monkey Master in a sub-plot that goes on for the rest of the series.
