* Being an AffectionateParody of the video game industri as a whole, the ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' series feature plenty of in-universe games that are parodies of real-life video games. Most of these go unnamed and are only indirectly mentioned with phrases like "[[VideoGame/MarioParty that plumber's party game]]" or "[[VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet a little big]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LittleBigPlanet_Karting racer]]", but one that gets mentioned from time to time is ''[[VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} Pocketed Monstrosities]]''. On the non-parody side, there's the in-universe MMORPG ''4 Goddesses Online'', which was eventually partially [[{{Defictionalization}} defictionalized]] as ''VideoGame/CyberdimensionNeptunia4GoddessesOnline''.

* ''[[TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial 2]]'' is the host of several Shows Within a Show: "Super Dragon Warrior" (Chou Senshi Dragon, a HotBlooded SuperSentai series), "Go-Driller" (a HotBlooded SuperRobot anime), "Space Idol Love-Love Star" (Uchuu Idol Love-Love Star, a MagicalGirl series), and "Protuding-navel Kero Kero" (Kero Kero Debeso, an anime). Homura Akai is a ''big'' fan of the first two, to the point of mimicing the Dragon Warrior's special kick and [[ThisIsADrill wielding drills]] just like Go-Driller ; Mei Ijuin likes the second too ; Miyuki Kotobuki is an avid fan of the third ; and Miho Shirayuki ''adores'' the fourth.

** Suda51 has expressed a little interest in {{Defictionalization}} of the show if the opportunity comes up. Presumably it would be a scathing parody of anime tropes... or just plain MindScrew. Or both.
