* EvilDiva Ember [=McClain=] from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' is obsessed with people knowing who she is and obsessing over her. Her FreudianExcuse is that in life she was an unpopular girl who died young and forgotten.

* Kuzco from the ''[[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove The Emperor's New Groove/School]]'' series, which seem to be parallel continuities. The movie features CharacterDevelopment, so that at the end, he becomes a very nice, likable guy. In the series, however, he still acts like a attention-loving jerk, as though the events of the movie had never happened.
* Stewie and Peter on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', to hilarious extremes. Meg qualifies as a more desperate and lonely version of this, though she's always played as the ButtMonkey.

* {{Flanderization}} turned popular kid Trixie Tang from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' into one. This is best seen in an episode where Timmy wishes that he and Trixie were the only two people on Earth. It backfires when Trixie becomes over clingy to make up for the lack of attention she was receiving.

* Bender of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' pulls stunts all the time so that people will pay attention to him. The biggest probably being when he got a slave population to build a towering statue of him that said "Remember Me!" and then shot fire from its eyes.

** Rainbow Dash can slip into becoming a real attention horse at times, up to the point that in the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E8TheMysteriousMareDoWell The Mysterious Mare Do Well]]", she puts people in danger by insisting on shouting her new catchphrase instead of saving them from accidents.

It's later shown that her personality stems from having two overly supportive parents who always cheer her on and call her the best at everything she does, no matter how mundane.

* Squidward from ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants [=SpongeBob=] [=SquarePants=]]].'' When he's not keeping himself to himself, he's going around demanding people's attention by displaying interpretive dancing or playing his clarinet ''really'' loudly.

* Ty Lee from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', with a FreudianExcuse. She is from a very large family and will do anything to make herself stand out from her many look-alike sisters.
** Ty Lee actually plays with this trope a bit, as at the end of the series, she seems to have a bit of off-screen CharacterDevelopment and [[spoiler:joins the Kyoshi Warriors, and she doesn't care that they all dress identically]].

** WesternAnimation/BugsBunny isn't above this, [[DependingOnTheWriter particularly]] under Creater/RobertMcKimson. "Rebel Rabbit", for example, has him cause havoc throughout the world just to prove "that a rabbit can be more obnoxious than anybody!"

** Lisa herself also counts; she's very resentful of anyone who steals the limelight from her, even her own little sister, and attempts to join a football team with the express purpose of being the only girl. On learning that she won't be the only girl, she runs off crying instead.
