Let me remind you that, in Real Life, these examples can't harm you. They are fictional, and the definition of fictional is "does not exist in Real Life." You can't be hurt by things that don't exist-sure, they can frighten you, fill you with a sense of dread, or inspire Real Life maniacs, but it is, by definition of real and fictional, IMPOSSIBLE for them to actually hurt you. The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You, but MST3K Mantra will. And yet I still don't blink whenever I see a Weeping Angel.

Since we have that... creepy... Pinkamena Pie coming after us with a knife, does this count as a Self-Demonstrating Article?

...Pinkie Pie can warp reality enough to escape the Fourth Wall now? I'm terrified. So Terrified.

Oh, and that image at the top of the page isn't just a picture, Pinkie Pie actually is crawling out of it. I'd run now if I were you.

There we go. It was Chaotic Brian, but technically he was right and this shouldn't have been there. Here it is now for people to enjoy! :D :3

MLP doesn't even contain an example of the trope.It's just a goddamn cartoon. There are shows that pretty much revolve around this.

Well, weeks late nobody fixed this. I am much disappoint.

Could we atleast make the bottom of the image smaller,the white overlaps the blue bar thing. Also, the show has examples of forth wall breaking,sure-but pinkie pie escaping to hurt real people isn't even in fannon. Maybe weeping angels? That could turn out cool if we do it right.

Whether it overlaps or not depends on your screen width.

As it is, if people want the image changed then start a thread in Image Pickin'. Personally, I really like the current and think it's funny, clear, and a great illustration of the trope.

It was worth it to put this here. I regret nothing.

I love this picture, never change it. Seriously, it's one of the best (if not THE best) article images on the site.

Popping out of the fourth wall is an oft-used gimmick in 3D media, but I'm not sure where to put it in the article.

Someone took out the joke argument at the bottom of the page and didn't post it n here. That ticks me off. I hate who ever ruined that.

I went to Nanashi no Game from this picture to see some details about it, mostly for this trope's example. I then habitually went to the Random button and got sent back here.

Yeah, I'm kinda freaked out now.

...And some non-Brony/Filly wonders why the heck that links to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

I think that a link to Cupcakes would be more fitting.

I'd just like to point out that Pinkie Pie putting her hand over the caption is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

At first, I was weirded out by that picture, but then I lol'd when I tried clicking the link her hand is covering up.

I guess we should be thankful they didn't do an animated GIF instead. I don't think many people would come back to this page then...

I don't know anything about My Little Pony, but that's one of the best images on the site, seriously. For a second it fooled me.

INFECTED. THE PAGE IS INFECTED.

Honestly, I'd rather have the weeping angels.

I find myself with an agreement of over 95% with Tardises.Anything else will be fine.

...the image of an Angel becomes itself an Angel...

Would someone please explain to me what that was doing at the end of the page, and what it's supposed to mean?

It's a reference to the picture of Weeping Angels at the top of the page.

Weeping Angels are terrifying creatures from Doctor Who which can and will move any time they are unseen by human eyes... including those of the viewer. Now think again about the statement you quoted from the bottom of the page.

The joke under it is just about the worst joke I have read on the site. Do I have permission to erase?

I agree. This is standard JAFAAC. Going to Image Pickin'.

Please change the picture. I saw it at midnight and am now on the verge of shitting in fear.
