* Used at the end of ''Literature/AScannerDarkly'', in a rather gut-punching way. In the epilogue, Philip K. Dick talks about the people he'd lost to drug addiction over the years, and then lists some of them off. One of the last names is "Phil" - he'd discovered shortly before writing the book that he had suffered permanent pancreatic damage, which would eventually kill him.

* {{ZigZagged}} in ''Podcast/WithinTheWires'' when Cassette #1, Side B has its {{Narrator}} instructing its listener, the patient in a research hospital, to imagine themself as a dragonfly handled by a little girl.

* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'': This is the punchline of the short strip ''Candy and the Catchman'', where an old man warns a bunch of children to watch out for a bug-like monster that drains the lifeforce of small children, and how a boy named Billy Candy stood up to the creature but failed. When the children don't believe his crazy story, he reveals that it happened only yesterday, because ''he's'' Billy Candy.

* 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."

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.
