**Also to be noted is that, almost unusually among Lackey's Herald characters, the relationship between said badass and the self insert is not a 'life bond' but instead a friendship that gradually turns into something more. Also the character herself is described as somewhat dumpy and middle-aged as well as practically blind without her glasses. She is also very much a secondary character in the story.

* This trope is OlderThanFeudalism: After Creator/{{Aristophanes}} described fellow comic dramatist Cratinus "as a drivelling old man, wandering about with his crown withered, and so utterly neglected by his former admirers that he could not even procure to quench the thirst of which he was perishing" in ''The Knights'', Cratinus responded with his (now lost) play ''The Wine-Flask'', wherein an he himself is taken to court by his wife Comedy, who accuses him of cavorting with young wines. He defends his wine drinking in-universe by describing it as vital for his ability to write decent-quality comedy.

** In ''Literature/TheDarkHalf'' we have Thad Beaumont, to an extent. King has written (and still does, occasionally) under the pseudonym of RichardBachman, and he treats Bachman like a separate person, even giving him a separate biography in Bachman novels. He wrote ''The Dark Half'' partly to explore that idea in a literal sense.

* ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'': Author Juan López sometimes draws himself, usually as a background character. Not to mention that the protagonist is called, well, Juan López.

Not to mention that the protagonist titular character is called, well, Juan López.López. ** That doubles as a FridgeBrilliance because Juan López is a pretty common name. If he was called José Pérez, it'd have been in theory the same.

* [[MrExposition The Advisor]] in ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated'', who gives the [[Anime/MaiHime Himes]] most of their exposition on the [=SUEs=]. [[spoiler:He is also known as the Avatar, and he created the [[ParodySue SUEs]] and set them against the Himes to determine whether a MarySue could survive or achieve her goals without the author's support; he chose not to support them or the [[MaiHime Himes]] because if he wholeheartedly helped one side, that side would win. The Himes are not pleased when they find out, and Natsuki even tries to kill the Avatar to prevent anything of the sort from happening again]].
