A self-aware character near the game’s end will find your PC or Steam name (in a safe, virus-free way) and address you with it instead of the name you chose at the game’s start. Smaller, less noticeable fourth wall breaks are made by the character beforehand to hint at the truth.

In the Kung Fu universe, Evelyn stars in the movie itself, and we see her watching it in a movie theater.

It is a Minecraft series and the creators will often talk to the audience to ask their opinions on something and Technoblade canonically hears the voices of his chat in his head.

It's a large plot point, and happens multiple times in every episode.

The fourth wall is broken a lot the more you play the game, with some characters addressing you the player and not the character you play as

lazy villagers have dialogue exclaiming "what if all this isn't real and we're just someone else's entertainment?" and the player will get visibly nervous. the villager will describe how illogical some of the game mechanics are. but, it ends with them laughing it off as a joke. this is random dialogue that doesn't happen often, but isn't easily avoidable either.

SPOILER - Main character speaks directly to the audience multiple times. At the end she tells the audience they are cursed. Very triggering.

A character looks directly at the camera a couple times through the movie. [SPOILER] However, the audience is not directly acknowledged due to the nature of the story.

The episode "Little Gift Shop of Horrors" mostly consists of Stan talking directly to the viewer. There's also some camera interaction, including Stan knocking the viewer out and putting them in an exhibit. This episode is non-canon and doesn't really have any impact on the series, so you can skip it if this is triggering for you.

The player is directly addressed at three points- the beginning sequence that enables or disables spoilers for the first game, a summation sequence before the climax where the game's events are reviewed, and an optional bonus ending that unlocks after completing the game.

Yes. Pugsley's magic allows them to move through some of Pauline's cinematography and the TV screen is the 4th wall.

The narrator obviously narrates the whole movie, but one part that almost creeped me put was when in the end of the movie Tyler specifically mentioned flashback from the beginning of the movie, calling it a flashback.
