* Creator/AdamWest [[AdamWesting has practically made a new career out of this]]. On an episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' he voices a washed-up has-been actor whose most famous role was playing a superhero in a television show. Later on, he voiced Mayor Grange in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', and appeared in ''Series/LoisAndClark''. He has a steady role now as Mayor Adam West of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. (Yes, the names are the same and he's insane, but there doesn't seem to be an actual connection to Batman.) Adam West also appears in ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' a few times.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' featured ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' voice actor Creator/KevinConroy as an avenging superhero mourning his dead sidekick. His [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything reputation]] with teen sidekicks is [[{{shotacon}} suspect]] at best.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' manages to combine this with TalkingToHimself. Fred Tasticore plays both the Comicbook/IncredibleHulk (reprising the role from... practically everything the Hulk has been in since 2003) and Graviton. Then Graviton lets loose one of Hulk's {{catchphrase}}s:

** Grant Walker, voiced by Daniel O'Herlihy, has decided that things are too rough and has decided to replace an old society with a new city, and is willing to take drastic steps to take out the old one. Granted, wiping out the planet's population is more extreme and Walker [[MrAltDisney was based on]] UsefulNotes/WaltDisney, but Oceania sounds a lot like Delta City from the ''Franchise/RoboCop'' movies, which OCP's chiarman, the Old Man, (also played by O'Herlihy) intended to replace crime-ridden Detroit.
