* In [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable]], Koichi and Rohan end up in a mysterious alley where they meet a girl named Reimi Sugimoto, who tells them a story about a girl who was murdered 15 years prior alongside her dog who had his throat slit. She then reassures a frightened Koichi that it didn't actually happen. However, shortly after this, Rohan sees a dog with a slit, bleeding throat, leading Reimi to reveal that she was the girl murdered and that she and her dog are ghosts who want their murderer, [[BigBad Yoshikage Kira]], brought to justice so they can finally move on.

* Villain example in ''Film/{{Cinderella 2015}}'': Lady Tremaine tells Ella the story about a young girl who married for love, and was happy, until her husband died. Out of concern for her daughters’ wellbeing, the girl, now a grown woman, decided to marry again to provide them with financial support. But then ''that'' husband died, too. Her last attempt was to get her daughters to marry the prince of their kingdom, but the prince was instead wooed by a simple servant girl "and ''I'' lived unhappily ever after."

* While ''WesternAnimation/TheBoyAndTheWorld'' is devoid of dialogue, it is strongly hinted that the man in the rainbow hat is the titular boy.

Compare YouKnowWhoSaidThat, where the anonymous example of some value turns out to be a historical figure. Also compare IHaveThisFriend, ActuallyIAmHim, and LetMeTellYouAStory. For when the entire story turns out to have been one of these, see NarratorAllAlong. If the main character does this, it's NostalgicNarratsor.

* A story (perhaps anecdotal or urban legend) of an artist who was commissioned to do the life Christ in a giant mural. He started with Christ's birth, using the most cherubic baby he could find as a model, and after years reached the end, but was only stuck on the model for Judas. He simply could not find anyone degraded enough to use, until he finally found a worn out drunk with the most depraved look and hired him. The drunk could hardly refuse the money, but when they reached the studio and saw the mural he burst into tears. Asked why he said "I know about this painting. My mother told me about it. I was the model for the Christ child."
* There is a similar story about Leonardo Da Vinci painting the Last Supper. In order to find the appropriate look for Judas, he went to the local prisons and found a man who looked haggard, angry and dangerous and used him as the model. Some years later he still hadn't found the right person to stand in for Jesus. While pondering the question, a man walked into the studio who looked perfect, clean with kind and features. Leonardo immediately chose the man as his inspiration for Jesus. When Leonardo asked the man if they had ever met, the man replied, "Yes, I was Judas."

* In ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'' Stick tells a story about how a child began fighting the [[spoiler: Hand]], killing them until they were driven out and this act of defiance was the origin of his organization, the Chaste. Matt assumes Stick is talking about himself and sarcastically compliments him on keeping himself at the center. What the audience sees of the Chaste indicates Stick isn't its leader, suggesting this assumption may well be wrong.

**At Frank Castle's trial, Colonel Schoonover testifies as a character witness, and tells a story about a stupid officer who got Castle's squad into an ambush, that caused said idiot officer to lose his arm. When Reyes claims no one can really know what happened if they weren't there, Schoonover says he ''was'' that idiot officer, completely undercutting Reyes' argument.

* Played with in an episode of ''HeyArnold'' when Arnold is complaining about Helga. Grandpa Phil tells Arnold about a little girl named Gertie in his class that was horrible to him and spent the school year making him miserable. At the end of the episode Arnold's Grandma states that she was that very girl - though Arnold doesn't hear it. Which leads to some FridgeLogic when you realize that Arnold probably knows his grandmother's name, and so he should've have made the connection that Gertie was his grandma, especially since it's a really uncommon name.

* In ''VideoGame/Grand Theft Auto V'', Trevor tells Wade his life story during the drive to Los Santos. The characters are obviously him and Michael, to the point that Trevor almost uses their real names before stopping himself midway (he uses "Trisha" for himself and "Michele" for Michael). Fortunately for him, Wade isn't smart enough to catch on, even when he loses his temper and starts using their real names.
