** He makes a cameo in all the Marvel films based on characters he created (so not ''Film/ThePunisher2004'', ''Film/GhostRider'', or ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''). His role is becoming increasingly larger, and is something of an EasterEgg for fans. For example; in one of his earliest, he was a guy pulling a kid out of the way of falling debris in ''Film/SpiderMan1''. Now, he's seen, very clearly, drinking poisoned soda in ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'', telling Peter Parker that he's made a difference in ''Film/SpiderMan3'', and being mistaken for Hugh Hefner in ''Film/IronMan1''. ''[[Film/FantasticFour2005 Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer]]'' saw Stan Lee trying to get into Reed and Susan's wedding, [[YourCostumeNeedsWork but the doorman wouldn't believe he was really Stan Lee.]] This was inspired by the comics version of the wedding from ''Fantastic Four'' Annual #3, where Stan and Creator/JackKirby were thrown out of the wedding. ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' features him as a "Watcher Informant", which confirms that he truly is a cosmic being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This leads many to believe he is The One Above All, the ultimate God ([[InsistentTerminology with a capital G]].)

In ''Out of the Silent Planet,'' he describes how he learned of Ransom's adventures when he contacted Ransom to ask a philological question. In "That Hideous Strength," he describes his visit to the scene of the story, before the plot began.

** In general, King is really fond of [[MostWritersAreWriters authors as main characters.]] The main character of ''Literature/{{Misery}}'' has written a long series of popular genre-novels (historical romance, rather than horror), but wants to write more "serious" fiction, and is kidnapped by an obsessed fan. More egregiously, the hero of ''Literature/{{It}}'' is a successful horror writer, whose novel is being made into a movie, with some flashbacks to explain how thoroughly his success proves wrong his snobby, pretentious writing professor, who sneered at all that genre stuff. Interestingly enough, the protagonist of ''1408'' writes nonfiction "scary" books, all about supposedly haunted hotels, and the hotel manager comments on how cynical his work seems.

* The Wrestling/{{WWE}} creative team actually prefers to do this with all the wrestlers; [[RealLifeWritesThePlot they use real life situations in the wrestlers' lives in storylines so they have an easier time performing them.]] This can work in negative ways as well, such as Wrestling/MollyHolly being written as a self-righteous prude when she was a virgin in real life, or Wrestling/{{Edge}} and Wrestling/{{Lita}}'s behind-the-scenes affair becoming a storyline feud with Wrestling/MattHardy.

The yellow-clad hellspawn ninja isn't just a fan-fave; [[WordOfGod Boon has stated numerous times that Scorpion is his favorite character]]. Boon even provides the voicework for Scorpion's [[CatchPhrase iconic]] "GET OVER HERE!"/"COME HERE!" (in fact, he's been doing so since the series's inception in '92), and Scorpion became the [[SeriesMascot icon for Netherrealm Studios' logo]], albeit with a slightly different design and weapon (a sickle instead of a chain-tipped kunai).

[[SoapboxSadie Although she acts as the straw (anything else) herself.]] Groening has even admitted that Lisa is his favorite character and will do anything not to make her look bad. In fact during the commentary for "The Cartridge Family", Matt admitted, like Lisa, to absolutely hating guns and in fact ''nearly got into a fight with the crew''.

* Used rather blatantly in the ''Mark Brandis'' books - a series of {{Zeerust}}-y Pulp ScienceFiction novels from the 80's. Featuring the grand adventures of the dashing space-captain Mark Brandis, this series was penned by one... Mark Brandis. They never attained any great success, but they remain a very rare example of an actual, real-life use of HerCodenameWasMarySue in published literature...

* It has been argued that the positioning of Jonah on the Art/SistineChapel's ceiling, with his back bent and face stating upwards, reflects the position Creator/{{Michelangelo}} himself would have been in while painting the ceiling. The three-page paper ''Michelangelo's Art through Michelangelo's Eyes'' makes a point of this.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Doctor Strange, who the author has admitted is pretty much an author avatar. This is unsurprising, considering that Strange is a mysterious schemer and master MagnificentBastard who specialises at lying with ExactWords, is behind most of everything that happens in the book, ties it all up pretty neatly... and is a ''colossal'' {{Troll}} who will do things simply because he thinks that they're funny and both cast and reader frequently want to punch in the mouth.

* Bryan Croi-Dragon, the Minecraft persona of FanFic/AGrandChronicleOfChampionsAndBlackguards writer Jet556, is supposed to be like this but seems more like a Creator/WalterScott portrayal of UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionheart.

The one who is eventually revealed to be [[spoiler:Stratogale's half brother by way of [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Aperture Science and Technology]]]]? That's the author with the ability to transform into a genetically engineered PteroSoarer.



* Child at Heart Forever occasionally inserts herself in her original stories, usually the ones that cross over the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' and ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchises. Surprisingly, her ''FanFic/PaperMarioX'' magnum opus has her kept neatly outside the story, preferring to talk on the author's notes--[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou that characters have occasionally invaded]], causing Child to have conversations with those characters. Child's sister Natalie also makes a part of these notes later on, usually on the final chapter of each story.



* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': Beta-reader and co-writer Anon e Mouse Jr. includes an author avatar of himself with the powers (and then some) of [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Kamen Rider Skull]] in the non-canon omake chapters, where he has a tendency to pop in and give some information to the characters before disappearing again. His words are chosen to be truthful, but careful not to spoil the plot.
