* 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.

* WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} has a tendency to complain about plot twists he doesn't like in the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series. Somewhat justified since, as in the show, the characters are aware that Mr. Monitor often puts their antics on Neitherworld television, and he has every reason to believe that there actually is a screenwriter controlling the script.



* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut,'' where the South Park gang, watching a Terence and Philip show-within-a-show that is little more than a recurring fart gag, rhetorically ask how the writers can keep coming up such genius

* In ''VideoGame/RatchetDeadlocked'', Dallas, the commentator in question, is...[[TooDumbToLive not quite the smartest person in the game]]. Even ''he'' can spot the key bad writing:
-->"Too bad the shields took a direct hit... too bad I said 'Bingo-bango', who writes this junk?!?"
** Also happens during the Captain Qwark mini-games during ''RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal''. The narrator in the opening and closing bits voices his disbelief of Qwark's supposed adventures. Didn't help that Qwark wrote the scripts.

** An episode parodying ''Literature/RobinsonCrusoe'' started with the Crusoe and Man Friday characters watching ''TheMonkees'', and Friday saying "Who writes this stuff?'' Once the band arrived, he would repeat this frequently.
** Not exactly this trope, but in another episode, Micky is frustrated by a turn of events and stomps off the sound stage, past the cameras and crew, into a back room, and demands that the writers give him an idea to resolve the plot. They do, but he rejects it and returns to the set.

frequently while watching their antics.
** A more subtle example occurs in "Monkees a la Mode", which features a character named Rob Roy Fingerhead. Whenever his name is mentioned, Mike and Micky look at each other in disbelief and mouth the words "Rob Roy Fingerhead??" to each other.

* In ''FanFic/FateRevelationOnline'' the second Alley Cat Alliance sequence features the three female characters dressed up as Playboy bunny girls. They quickly fall into lamenting how the hack of a writer they have to put up with could only come up with one gag and falls back on cheesecake to cover for the weak metahumor. [[LemonyNarrator The narration takes offense]].
