* A particularly recursive example: ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' has an episode called "Take Two", in which the first ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' movie is supposedly being made. Points that were altered in the animated series are {{lampshade|Hanging}}d as "inaccuracies" in a fictionalized account of the main characters' adventures. The broadcast version even used actual clips from the film to represent the movie, although these were later cut for syndication.

** in the S season Sailor Venus, (badly) disguised as Sailor Moon, convinces Kaolinite and the Outers that Usagi is not Sailor Moon, and in the process dismisses the [[TransformationTrinket Cosmic Heart Compact]] as ''merchandise''.

* In an early episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Pikachu is cast to star in a movie by an Akira Kurosawa look-alike. Ash is enthused but Misty responds "Who'd want to watch a film about us?" And the kicker? The episode takes place at close to the same time as ''[[TheMovie Pokémon: The First Movie]]''.

* When the ''Manga/KimiToBoku'' characters try to make a manga, Chizuru changes the genre from action-fantasy to school drama. The others get confused to why anyone would want to read such a boring concept.

** in the ''Sailor Moon'' manga a Sailor Soldiers franchise (somehow spun-off by the Sailor V Game) shows up saltuarily, with a side story showing the existance of a cosplay shop ''dedicated to them'';
** episode 21 of the first anime has Usagi (after seeing the ''Sailor V'' anime) wishing someone would make an anime of her, to which Luna replies that nobody would be interested. This episode was also a small TakeThat at the fact there was supposed to be a real life ''Sailor V'' anime (or at least an OAV) but the creator was asked to expand the series into a team format and ended up creating ''Sailor Moon'';

** In the Cloverway dub version of episode 104, the Shin-chan {{Expy}} is a Sailor Moon fan who shows off his Sailor Moon underwear to Rini, which disgusts her.

* Done in the ''very first strip'' of ''[[Webcomic/{{Kurami}} Life With Kurami]]'', combined with IShouldWriteABookAboutThis, as a means of introducing the strip's premise in a very meta way:
-->'''Bree''': Ana, I'm wanting to create a comic strip. It'll focus on your blind baby cousin, Kurami, and our [[IncrediblyLamePun big]] struggles as [[BigBeautifulWoman busty, plus-size women]].
-->'''Ana''': That's a silly concept, Bree. Who will read a comic about THAT?
-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Zane]]''': Let's ask the readers.

** Spider-Man was once asked to star in a movie about himself -- the offer turned out to be a trap set (somewhat ironically) by the [[NormanOsborn Green Goblin]], who made his debut in that issue.

** Most of the times someone decides to use the image of [[PaperinikNewAdventures Paperinik]] (Donald's superhero alter-ego) to make a movie, a video-game, a reality show, or, in one occasion, a ''rock singer playing with (fake) martians''. It almost always ends with Paperinik taking offense at something and sabotaging everything (the most epic being the rock singer, sponsored by Scrooge: Paperinik staged a ''fake alien invasion'' to force Scrooge to call everything off and refund whoever had been at one of the concerts), the exception being the movie where Donald himself played the lead role (after initially being cast as the stunt double), in which Paperinik only forced a change of script;

** In ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'', Spider-Man finds a movie about himself being made by none other than [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy Sam Raimi, Avi Arad and starring Tobey Maguire]]. Since he is not an official entity of any kind and is not willing to reveal his secret identity, he is unable to stop the movie from going into production. The movie later becomes a hit, incorporating real life footage from the ensuing Spidey-DoctorOctopus fight, much to Peter Parker's chagrin. He ends up confronting the movie crew about this situation, but unfortunately does so utilizing his powers, mainly leaping about and sticking to things. The director simply has his crew start filming and he thanks Spidey for all the free footage he can now put, at no cost, into his film.

* A ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' episode called "And the Molerat Will Be CGI". Written around the then-planned [[LiveActionAdaptation live-action ''KP'' movie]], which eventually became "So the Drama". Kim is surprised that anyone would want to make a movie about her, and not at all bothered when it gets cancelled at the end of the episode.
