%% Before adding examples, check the guidelines in the Expy cleanup thread (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13983140170A37263400) and make sure your example fits the criteria to qualify as an Expy. Don't just list minor or coincidental similarities. Also, explain why the character is an Expy - don't just say "X is an expy of Y" and leave it at that.

* Swedish comic ''{{Comics/Rocky}}'' featured a strip in which the title character's comic is rejected because the publisher claims that its protaganist is an Expy of ''[[{{ComicBook/FritzTheCat}} Fritz the Cat]]''. Another strip suggested that the title character in a similar comic, ''[[http://www.elvisthecomic.com/ Elvis]]'', was an Expy of ''Rocky''.
