* ''Film/BlackMirrorBandersnatch'':
** If you "screw up" at a certain decision, you hit the dead end pathway and are forced to start again. From this point on, Stefan and Colin are aware of the actions they performed and the choices you made on the last run. Sometimes, they're very aware, for others they just think they have DejaVu.

** It even gets to the point where [[spoiler:''Netflix itself'' is heavily involved in two of the routes]].

* In Tim Shaw's Pizza Hut [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPobhSvXtDQ commercial]], he repeatedly uses his ButWaitTheresMore schtick until Dougie cuts him off, saying "Not in a thirty second commercial, there's not," before signalling to the camera.


*** In [[Film/{{Batman}} the movie]], he talked to himself a few times, serving the same narrative purpose, but preserving the [[SeriousBusiness seriousness]]. On the other hand, he sometimes did so while looking straight-ahead, 'coincidentally' right at the camera, sooo...

*DC canon being what it is, it's hard to know if it counts ''now,'' but at one point, Mr. Mxyzptlk turns out to know that he's in a comic book (and ''many'' other media. Apparently, all print, animated, and live versions of him are one guy who likes to hop around the multiverse and present himself a little differently in each. Of course, it stops being funny if [[FridgeHorror you consider]] the versions in which he's a very far cry from the usual harmless trickster.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicStrip/HiAndLois'': This is one possible interpretation of the [[http://hiandlois.com/comics/november-10-2018/ November 10th, 2018 strip]], where Ditto refers to ComicStrip/BeetleBailey as a "cartoon character". Not only is ''Hi and Lois'' a SpinOff of ''Beetle Bailey'', but Ditto is ''Beetle's nephew''.\\
Given the lack of context, it is also possible that there is a cartoon in the strip's universe ''based'' on the real Beetle, which would be RecursiveCanon instead.


* ''Film/TropicThunder'' opens with commercials and [[RealTrailerFakeMovie movie trailers]] starring the main characters of the [[ShowWithinAShow film within the film]].

* ''Film/TropicThunder'' opens with commercials ''Film/CriaCuervos'': The Spanish pop song that features prominently on the soundtrack is playing quite loudly. Ana, our protagonist, looks straight into the camera and [[RealTrailerFakeMovie movie trailers]] starring says "Could you turn that music down?" Afterwards the main characters of the [[ShowWithinAShow film within the film]].music does in fact quiet down quite a bit.

Added DiffLines:

* In the later books of ''Literature/AliceGirlFromTheFuture'', it happens to many characters. The GenreSavvy ones are careful to arrange everything as it should happen in a novel, and the recurring villains know that they are recurring villains and can’t kill Alice because she’s the series’ protagonist.
