Splatoon 2 just got one of these.
Marina says: "It's funny because this is only a simulation and free will is a lie." Pearl then responds "Head to the pledge box and choose the side you're programmed to!"
Anyone else notice there are two separate Simpsons sections for listing tropes?
Would anyone be interested in a subtrope of this for when, in written-dialogue mediums (comics, literature), someone corrects a word someone else, except the wrong and correct words are both homophones and so the corrector couldn't have possibly detected it was misspelled in-universe?
When it looks as if a character can hear ortography, like the dude from Brandon Sanderson's I Hate Dragons writing exercise.
Is there a specific term for characters who break the fourth wall because of No Social Skills? My guess is Beyond the Impossible.
I seem to recall a Simpsons episode where Kent Brockman was screaming about commercials planning to kill you. Then of course, real commercial break.
Buffy; in one of the college years episode she is having a weird, extended dream. The unreality is heightened by the geography being all wonky. One set leads directly to the other with no logic. This is how the sets are laid out in real life. I think 'Home Improvement' did a similar bit but as a joke.
Here's a fun activity to try: Gain Medium Awareness in real life. Complain about what the writers are making you, the main character, deal with today. Refer to what happened "in the last episode." Tell people to continue the conversation after the commercial break has ended. And so on.
It's really fun, I've done it before.
