* In ''Radio/JohnFinnemoresSouvenirProgramme'', one episode has a spy drama set in a zoo, with an early gag of "Shall we say backchannels?" "All right, 'backchannels'. It's fun to say." Later, when Finnemore's character is explaining to another that they are ''not'' doing a joke about moles, even though it would seem to be the only reason to set a spy drama in a zoo, because it's a bit cheap and obvious, the other character says "So I take it we left out the backchannels joke as well?" Finnemore replies "[[BlatantLies Yes. Yes, we did]]."

* On one episode of ''Series/GrowingPains,'' after Maggie's father dies, his spirit is sent back to earth to say all the things to his loved ones that he didn't say while he was alive. He has a list in his hands, and a nice touching scene where he apologizes to his daughter for never taking her fishing like he promised. He then turns to his son-in-law Jason and starts to express his regret that they never had a good relationship. Mid-apology, however, he stops himself, saying that he does ''not'' feel this way and wondering who the heck wrote the list for him.

Notable examples include Hulk Hogan throwing down the WCW Championship title and calling out the writing at that year's Bash at the Beach, and Dustin Rhodes ridiculing his new "Seven" gimmick in his first live appearance on Monday Nitro.

* In one of the non-canon side stories in ''[[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Kagetsu Tohya]]'' Akiha suddenly remembers her twin sister! At which Shiki points out that's ridiculous, there was absolutely no foreshadowing or buildup and crummy as this story is that's just too dumb to let slide.

* Probably the instance that started it all in animation is the 1937 WesternAnimation/PorkyPig cartoon "Porky's Duck Hunt," where Porky sends his dog to retrieve the duck he's ostensibly shot, but the duck throws the dog back on land. Porky takes out a notepad, studies it for a second, then exclaims "Hey! '''''That''''' wasn't in the script!"

* At the end of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' Varric brings up writing a book on what happened, "This Shit Is Weird." He can be called out on the title and on ''Trespasser'' he actually does write the book, and Cassandra reads it, having a blast at the exaggerated characters and critiquing the more inane lines.
** The other characters also give him a lot of ribbing about his previous book, which is of course the last game. This is mostly used as a series of TakeThatUs jokes about that entry's eccentricities and plot holes.

After they're chastised by Haymitch for not being convincing with their speeches during their Victory Tour, Peeta sarcastically responds that it's difficult to sound sincere with the "stuff Effie writes for us". The "stuff" being pandering, sycophantic drivel designed to glorify and placate the Capital.
