* FictionalCounterpart: InUniverse comic book superhero Bionic Bunny is an amalgam of a couple different Creator/DCComics heroes. He's most directly based on Franchise/{{Superman}} (ability to fly, SuperStrength, reported ability to shoot "power blasts" though it's never seen by the viewers, has a mild-mannered civilian ClarkKenting guise), but instead of being an alien he acquired his powers by {{cyborg}}ization like, well, ComicBook/{{Cyborg}}. Some later episodes introduce another hero, Dark Bunny, seemingly based off of Franchise/{{Batman}}.

** The ''Scare Your Pants Off'' book series stands in for ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}''. A later episode has Arthur and Buster saying they're nowhere near as scary as ''Veggiemorphs'' (for ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'').

** In "Arthur Meets Mister Rogers", Arthur repeatedly keeps trying to stall Mr. Rogers so he doesn't get seen by his friends with him while out on a neighborhood walk. When he keeps trying to play piano pieces for him, D.W. utters a very annoyed "Arthur. Mr. Rogers is going to ''die'' of boredom."

* LaserGuidedKarma: In "The Rat Who Came to Dinner" Arthur's friends relentlessly mock him for the fact that Mr. Ratburn is staying at his house while his roof is being fixed, convinced that Arthur is receiving special treatment over them. To resolve the situation, Mr. Ratburn announces to all of the kids that he is going to stay at each of their houses as he continues to supervise the repairs, causing all the kids to panic and to seek Arthur's advice on how to get through it.
** A more notorious example is "Arthur's Big Hit", when Arthur hits D.W. when she destroys his model plane, and is later hit himself by Binky as part of a dare, which finally gets Arthur to see the error of his actions.

** In "Buster Makes the Grade," Buster [[ImagineSpot imagines himself]] as a grown-up still in the third grade, visiting Principal Arthur. Arthur tells Buster the [[BadNewsInAGoodWay good news]] that Buster will be going somewhere that he can eat, sleep, and play all day: preschool! Buster then breaks down and begs Arthur for a second chance, knowing he can do better the next time.

* AndYouWereThere: The show does this in "D.W.'s Name Game" with an OffToSeeTheWizard sort of plot. In the story, after Arthur and D.W. trade insults, events culminate with Arthur shocking her by calling her "Dora Winifred" (her real name) and her being sent to bed. She has a dream in which she consults "The Great Thesaurus" and Arthur is cast in the role of the Wicked Witch. When she finally wakes up, she tells her family "And you were there, and you, and you were there too." At which point, the Thesaurus (a dinosaur) appears outside her window, saying his CatchPhrase, "Ah, sheesh." Notably, though, neither Mr. Read nor Mrs. Read were actually in D.W.'s fantasy in any form.

* OfficialFanSubmittedContent: A few in-universe examples
** In ''Arthur and the Crunch Cereal Contest'', Crunch cereal is holding a contest to come up with a new jingle. Arthur [[spoiler: giving credit to D.W.]] wins the contest, and the jingle becomes the official jingle for crunch.
** In ''The Contest'', the ''[[ShowWithinAShow Andy]]'' show is having a contest where viewers write a story about them and their friends and submit them to the show. This episode is also an example of the trope, as the idea for Arthur and friends to enter a contest was the result of the Arthur writers having a similar contest. Each of the stories the characters came up with was created by fans.

* HereWeGoAgain: The show is quite fond of this, with some of the episodes featuring this being "Buster Baxter, Cat Saver", "Locked in the Library!", and "Is There a Doctor in the House?" Special mention also goes to its music cue that almost always occurs from this.
