* Taran of the ''Literature/PrydainChronicles'' dreams of becoming a hero and fighting side-by-side with Prince Gwydion. Eventually, he gets to do so, ends up with a CoolSword, [[spoiler: gets to marry the Princess, slay the BigBad,]] and save the kingdom. Also somewhat deconstructed, in that while he wants to be a hero, he at first doesn't realize how much hardship is involved, and that you have to EarnYourHappyEnding.

* The professor from the one-man-band short film ''Anime/NegadonTheMonsterFromMars'' (See it, if just for the CGI alone.) After accidentally killing his daughter during a test run, he squirrels away the giant robot Miroku after the army is embarrassed by the disaster and cancels the project. Though he doesn't want to ever use the robot again because of the terrible memories, it has been kept in prime working condition, and certainly a few of its abilities couldn't have been thought up(or approved) by stuffy PR-hound regulation-happy army generals so he most likely continued work on it on his own free time. When normal military hardware proves ineffective against Negadon, he brings out the mothballed mecha. Also he looks disturbingly similar to Otakon, only 30 years older.

* In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Agent Coulson fits this to a T, being a [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee fanboy of the first superhero, Captain America]], and becoming the main advocate for the Avengers Initiative, which was planned to be a team of superheroes. And that includes... you guessed it, Captain America.

** Otacon's the most obvious, but this actually applies to most of the cast. Ocelot is a SpaghettiWestern {{Otaku}} who was [[ComicBookFantasyCasting modelled after]] Creator/LeeVanCleef, can do ridiculous gunplay tricks with his revolver and pull off complicated ManWithNoName-style backstabbing BatmanGambit, and wears spurs all the time. Major Zero is a Film/JamesBond fanboy who is also a British spy going by an intitial codename ("O") and ends up masterminding a UsefulNotes/ColdWar assassination gambit to kill another superspy. Snake makes various references to movies throughout the games, even giving his name as Iroquois ([[MeaningfulName meaning "rattlesnake"]]) [[Film/EscapeFromNewYork Pliskin]] at one point, and he's based heavily on Eighties ActionHero characters. The [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming cutest example]] is probably Little John, a little boy who loves ninja manga and sci-fi about robots, and discovers at the end of ''MetalGearSolid4'' that his dad is a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot robot ninja]]. Score.
