* Cyan in ''FanFic/Perspective'', with a heavier emphasis on most than the trapped part and the emotional trauma that comes with it. Cyan is aware of the horrors of where he is in the RWBY series, but hasn't a clue how he arrived.

Most times, one of the cast members will be a GenreSavvy, or even [[{{Otaku}} a fan]], and will use that knowledge to beat the system, and many times there is also a [[{{GenreBlindness}} Genre Blind]] character, that is too serious, sane and is not into that kind of entertainment, and insists in using real world logic in a place where that doesn't apply, and becomes the victim, the ButtMonkey or TheMillstone.

* TheAdventuresOfGynoStar features a story arc in which the main character (feminist superhero Gyno-Star) gets trapped inside the world of beer commercials, and has to deal with sexist stereotypes and objectification of women.
* Webcomic/CaptainSNES, a [[AdaptationExpansion vastly improved]] [[FanSequel fan sequel]] to the Captain N cartoon below, uses the same premise, where a person from the real world gets sucked into Videoland.

* A two-part story from ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' had the ponies get trapped in ''book'' land, since Equestria - despite the occasional SchizoTech - generally pre-dates things like TV and computers. The idea works fine for the ''LordOfTheRings'' and FilmNoir parodies, but it gets a little weird when the story starts parodying ''StarTrek'', of all things.

* In ''Series/{{Dramaworld}}'', American college student Claire is magically transported into her favorite Korean drama. She's supposed to be a 'facilitator' to help make sure that the stories stay on track... but things don't go quite according to plan.

* What [[Comicbook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool Gwenpool]] claims happened to her: She lived an ordinary life in the real world but through some unexplained way was transported in the universe of her favorite fiction, Marvel comics. Other characters think she is crazy, which is certainly also an option (doesn't help that she thinks ''fictional people'' aren't real therefore expendable so she has no qualms [[TheSociopath murdering them in mass]]).
