* Rather dramatically {{deconstruct|ion}}ed by [[spoiler: Sayaka Maizono]] from ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa''. [[spoiler: Her desire for attention has a rather sad background, as she was raised by a single father who also was very {{workaholic}} and left her alone all the time. Young Sayaka spent several hours on her own in front of the TV and fell in love with the IdolSinger way of life, thinking that if she became one of these she would be given the affection and love she lacked; thus she worked hard, became a part of an idol group, and was so good at it that she became the Super High School Level IdolSinger, loved and admired by everyone in Japan. Then Monobear exploited Sayaka's massive terror at the idea of being forgotten, showing her a video of what would happen if she didn't leave Hope's Peak: that her group would be disbanded and she'd be totally abandoned by her fans... which ultimately made her snap hard enough to plan killing someone and use Naegi, her ex-classmate who had a crush on her, as a scapegoat -- and finished when she actually TRIED to kill someone [[TheCanKickedHim and ended up dead for it.]] All because Sayaka felt that, if she lost her fans's love and support, she would be literally worth NOTHING.]]

* The Spellican in ''KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' is shown to be this, especially when [[{{TheLancer}} Riku]] ignores him at one point to crack a joke with [[{{TheWorldEndsWithYou}} Beat and Rhyme]].

* In the VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries. 90% of the Riddler's actions and dialogue can basically be summed up as "Batman, pay attention to ''meeeeeeeeeee''!" His subplots in each of the games are basically him taking Batman's attention away from the various asylum riots / gang wars / apocalyptic attacks on Gotham that Batman is faced with to show off how cleverly he's hidden his various riddler trophies.

The other 10%, incidentally, is the Riddler yelling at Batman for finding his trophies and solving his various riddles / death traps, and therefore proving that Batman's cleverer than he is.

** Deconstructed with Serra in ''The Blazing Sword'', who only acts out and demands acknowledgement... due to her loneliness and abandonment issues. Under the cheerful, loud, bitchy exterior, ''there's a deeply damaged and scared BrokenBird''.

* The third ''Franchise/{{Ace Attorney}}'' game features a character named [[MeaningfulName Luke Atmey]]. Even better, his [[{{Leitmotif}} theme song]] is titled ''"I Just Want Love..."'', and his Japanese name is ''Aiga Hoshiidake'' which translates to ''"I just want love"''.

* HotlineMiami2WrongNumber has [[SerialKiller the Miami Mutilator]] [[spoiler: a.k.a. Manny Pardo, who wants the same media attention that Jacket got in the previous game by killing a bunch of people and then investigating his own crimes and eventually "catching" himself. Unfortunately for him, he gets upstaged by the Fans and their own brutal murders, and ultimately nobody really cares about him in the grand scheme of things.]]
