*** For this reason, many college professors have come to refer to life outside of academe as "the civilian world" instead.

* The Literature/FactionParadox book ''Dead Romance'' has an extreme version of this - the main character's world is just a small bottle universe sold to the {{Time Lord}}s. Upon escaping to the universe "above" (outside the bottle), she begins to realise, that may be yet another bottle universe. So she starts a quest to find the uppermost universe - the true Universe.

* The protagonist-centric naming scheme is discussed in ''[[Series/TheFlash2014 The Flash]]''. The first AlternateUniverse discovered is referred to as 'Earth-2', to which Harry, who is from that universe, responds that ''our'' world, to him, is Earth-2. Calling the setting's universe Earth-1 is ultimately justified, however, as it is revealed to be located at the centre of the Multiverse.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom,'' Danny and the others talk about the 'real world' and the 'ghost world'. Even some ghosts (who [[FridgeLogic should identify more with the ghost world]]) refer to the human world as the 'real world'.
** FridgeBrilliance: Since at least some of the ghosts were once human ([[FlipFlopOfGod maybe]]) they might still think of that as the "normal" reality.

* In ''The Adventures of SuperMarioBros 3'', not only the Mario Brothers, but the Princess and other characters native to the Mushroom Kingdom, called Earth the "Real World".

* Discussed, and eventually defied, in ''Series/DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency''. Todd initially believes, even after entering [[CrapsaccharineWorld "Wendimoor,"]] that it probably isn't real, and what happens to the people in it doesn't matter. Amanda, who had been there much longer and [[DisabilitySuperpower found that her illness from the "real" world gives her magic powers in Wendimoor]], does not agree. The locals are a bit distraught when they learn that their entire universe was created by [[spoiler:a RealityWarper child from our universe]]. But, by that point, all the original-universe characters are convinced that Wendimoor is a real place that isn't any less important than their own world.

** Sister series ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' and its ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' sequels reject the trope entirely - ''all'' worlds are equally reality. Even The World from ''Franchise/DotHack'' (which is explicitly digital) is treated as though it's real.

* The Franchise/{{Tron}} example below is {{Lampshaded}} and just as quickly {{Averted}} in ''Endgame Scenario.'' Tron refers to the User world as the "real" one, and [[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Jet]] bristles, firing back that the Program world is just as "real" as the human one.
