The Fourth Wall is the imaginary "wall" at the front of the stage in a traditional three-walled box set in a proscenium theater through which the audience sees the action in the world of the play. The idea of the fourth wall was made explicit by philosopher and critic Denis Diderot and spread in nineteenth-century theater with the advent of theatrical realism which extended the idea to the imaginary boundary between any fictional work and its audience. Speaking directly to or otherwise acknowledging the audience through the camera in a film or television program, or through this imaginary wall in a play is referred to as "breaking the fourth wall" and is considered a technique of meta-fiction as it deconstructs the boundaries normally set up by works of fiction.

Lampshading is the writers' trick of dealing with any element of the story that threatens the audience's willing suspension of disbelief — whether a very implausible plot development or a particularly blatant use of a trope — by calling attention to it... and then moving on. In simple terms - the author points out the improbable subject through some medium (character passerby narration etc.) and says it exists regardless of logic.
