* Creator/LMMontgomery admitted that the protagonist of the Literature/EmilyOfNewMoon series was based on her, saying "People were never right in saying I was Anne. But in some respects, they will be right if they write me down as Emily". Unfortunately, this means that Emily's [[CommonMarySueTraits glossy locks, purple eyes, literary genius, string of hopeless suitors and psychic powers]] moves her towards CanonSue territory.

* Hidekaz Himaruya, author of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', has said that [[HollywoodNerd Estonia]] is the closest character to him in terms of looks and personality, and at one point referred to him as the "coolest" character in the series.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Kaladin Stormblessed is a downplayed example. He shares at least one important bit of background with his author--both of them had parents who wanted them to go into medicine, but they ended up doing something else.

* Stephan Pastis of ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' appears from time to time in his cartoons, often to get yelled at by his characters. A recurring gag in the strip involves one of the characters(often Goat or Pig) making a particularly bad pun, immediately followed by a panel depicting Rat insulting Pastis for making that pun. During a brief arc where Darby Conley and Pastis collaborated on a gag, Conley appears in one or two ComicStrip/GetFuzzy strips where Pastis tries to peaceably get Conley to cease and desist his blatant ripping off of the day's ''Pearls Before Swine'' strips. He looks a bit like Rob, but distinct enough that you can tell you're looking at someone else; he portrays himself as an arrogant jerk who forgets Pastis's name as soon as he's done lying through his teeth at him.
