* Origami Cyclone in ''Manga/TigerAndBunny'' (at least, the superhero persona; Ivan himself is more of the shy type.) Because his powers, while useful for more stealth and espionage-related activities, are useless in the world of theatrical heroics, he's unable to do much crimefighting on Hero TV. Fortunately, since Hero TV is as much about corporate sponsorship and ProductPlacement as it is fighting crime, his sponsors find a different use for him: constant photo-bombing.

* ''Manga/RealAccount'''s Ayame Kamijou reveals she is this when her team has to pacify the giant "Attention-Chan" robot before it explodes. In Ayame's case, she came to rely on her brother's attention excessively when her classmates started ignoring her, even to the point of obsessing about him texting her and constantly clinging on him. She even continues seeking his attention after he essentially leaves her for dead to save himself. [[spoiler: Attention-Chan is actually also an attention seeking middle aged man, who started pretending to be a girl online after his wife left him so he felt supported and doted on.]] Ayame's own 'expertise' proves to be a method of victory, and she admits it is something she needs to work on.

* AttentionWhore:
** Sayaka constantly demanded to be the center of attention. Justified because her father was MarriedToTheJob so she tried to show him that she was capable of helping him, and no one valued her unless she proved her worth.
** Her younger cousin Yuri was a cranky, loud, attention-seeking brat who wanted everyone to pay attention to her. It's also justified, since her parents were always too busy to look after her.

* America from ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia''. "I'LL BE THE HERO, OF COURSE!"
** Prussia, too.
* Unfortunately, one of the characters from ''Manga/BitterVirgin'' (Daisuke's self-proclaimed girlfriend, Kazuki) combines this with {{Yandere}} and threatens to claim rape if Daisuke doesn't date her. Later on [[spoiler:she ''does'' try to (falsely) accuse Daisuke of rape, but fortunately no one believes her]].
%%* Don Patch from ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo''.
* [[PsychoLesbian Liang Qi]] of ''Anime/{{Canaan}}'' takes this to [[{{Yandere}} disturbing]] [[AxCrazy levels]] to attract her OneeSama [[DarkActionGirl Alphard]], up to wearing skimpy lingerie and literally throwing herself at her feet. Alphard however couldn't care less about her, so Liang Qi takes out her frustrations on her BeleagueredAssistant Cummings with an airsoft gun.
* Unlike her roommate Akane who [[ShrinkingViolet desperately tries to avoid being center-stage]], Hikari of ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'' basks in the spotlight. Lampshaded by Misaki in Chapter 20/Episode 6A as Misaki claiming this is the reason she's running for the [[ElectiveMonarchy King]].
* The [[MonsterClown Millennium Earl]] in ''Manga/DGrayMan''. In chapter 188, Road and Wisely are seen commenting on the Earl's need to always be the center of attention.



* Saki from ''Manga/ToLoveRu''. It never works, as Lala keeps inadvertently upstaging her.
* Sae from ''Manga/PeachGirl''. This is pretty much what drives her to do everything in her power to undermine Momo because she's jealous of Momo for gaining the attention of their sought after {{Bishonen}} classmates Kairi and Toji, and she wants to remain the most popular girl in school. In fact, she gets extremely nervous whenever it appears Momo is the focus of their classmates attention.



* Kanon the IdolSinger from ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' is a dramatic example of this who isn't in it for the attention in and of itself, [[FreudianExcuse having spent much of her school life being completely ignored]], later finding fame and a sense of worth by joining an idol trio, then breaking out as a solo act.

** A subversion: Haruhi's {{AttentionWhore}} tendencies are due to to the fact that she doesn't care what anyone thinks of her and her eccentric [[GenkiGirl personality]].
** Even when she does grab the spotlight, it's a way of getting what she wants, rather than ''just''
for the attention. Promoting her club or one of her projects for example.
** She doesn't get jealous of
attention paid to others for example, although her nature makes it really difficult to upstage her. [[spoiler: Nagato manages once or twice, like in ''Day of Sagittarius'' ]]

She was like that ever since kindergarten, when she discovered that adults would pay attention to her and a sense her peers would look up to her if she excelled in school. Her LoveInterest Arima is the first person outside her family who finds out what she's really like and accepts her anyway, causing her to start dropping her act in front of worth by joining an idol trio, then breaking other people as she becomes more comfortable in her own skin.

** Her Rebuild self is notably not this, possibly because its hinted her backstory is signifiantly different. She doesn't really seem to care if anyone pays attention to her at all and her attempts to show off in battle are mostly to prove she doesn't need anyone's help rather than to show off.
