* Parodied by Lee Jeans in 1998: "[[{{Mascot}} Buddy Lee]] IS [[AsHimself Buddy Lee]] IN [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Buddy Lee]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vA9N01N_dmA Man Of Action!"]] Bonus points for using Creator/DonLafontaine himself instead of a cheap sound-alike.

* One poster design for ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'', which was [[DuelingMovies competing with the]] ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'' spoof, had "SeanConnery IS Film/JamesBond." Ironically it was this movie where Connery quit the role partially because he wanted to be known as something other than Bond.
** Speaking of the Casino Royale spoof, which was "too much ... for one James Bond!", UrsulaAndress IS Film/JamesBond.
* Parodied in the trailer for ''PeeWeesBigAdventure'': [[ShapedLikeItself "Pee-Wee Herman is Pee-Wee Herman."]]
* The teaser trailer for ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' did this with the whole cast. With OrsonWelles narrating. See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwivz3gECus here]].
* Creator/StevenSeagal films have this title scheme as a tradition. "Steven Seagal is... ''Film/OutForJustice / Film/HardToKill / Film/OnDeadlyGround''," etc.
** ... which is in itself an odd use of the trope, since most of those aren't character names; they're usually descriptors which might well apply to Seagal (or the character he's portraying).

* In the Podcast/RiffTrax of ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Captain America]]'' lampshading the Captain's movie serials "Captain America ''is'' Captain America ''in'' ''Captain America''." Which is how it happens in the movie except we're never shown for sure that the movie serial is actually called ''Captain America.''
