* In the subculture and genre of VisualKei, attention whoring is used as an artist promotion tactic. It was more common with early artists and artists from that era, as, in TheEighties and early in TheNineties, artists ''had'' to promote themselves rather than work via established labels, establishment PR agencies, and the like -- and it became common in the era to do stuff like appear in public fully costumed, stage a public unlicensed live solely for the purpose of attracting media attention and controversy, start a BarBrawl with another band or trash a hotel or venue, get on the news, real life spam your band's stickers and name everywhere you could, claim to be a supernatural creature, do something offensive in public, etcetera. It's become less common as of TheTurnOfTheMillennium and TheNewTens, as then, visual kei artists (especially established acts) don't have to self-promote as much, can be promoted by established agencies if they can afford it, and the like, and that such behavior is far more often shunned ''even by fans'' than it used to be.

A pathological form of this in RealLife is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histrionic_Personality_Disorder Histrionic Personality Disorder]]. It's also a trait of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissistic_personality_disorder Narcissistic Personality Disorder]]. The key difference being how they react to personal criticism; a Histrionic will spin it in their favor, while a narcissist will become extremely offended. AcquiredSituationalNarcissism is a more benign form -- where the situation the person is in is driving the behavior, and which usually ends when the situation does. Of course, not all AttentionWhore behavior is pathological -- some of it is intentional and used for PR or promotional purposes. The pathological forms are also generally more extreme and more personal -- for example, an AttentionWhore who is relatively harmless toward other people or themselves in their attempts to get attention or celebrity (e.g. a noticeably gaudy fashion style, giving everyone business cards possibly for some made up business) is probably ''not'' suffering from a personality disorder, but is simply a bit of a ShamelessSelfPromoter.

* The reigar in the ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' are a whole species like this, as they ''always'' have to be center of attention. They dress in flamboyant, colorful clothes, have dyed, oddly cut hair, and extreme amounts of piercings and tattoos. They act the same way, giving an expression of exotic otherworldliness. Being artists (often {{Mad Artist}}s they simply don't believe in subtlety.
