* Creator/YoshihiroTogashi of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' often turns up in the background of his work as goofy-looking dog, generally a stuffed toy or logo. In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', he includes his wife, Creator/NaokoTakeuchi (also a manga-ka, of ''Manga/SailorMoon'' fame), in her preferred shape as a bunny rabbit.

* ''WebOriginal/TheCodelessCode'' has a few cases featuring Qi, [[TheNarrator the temple's scribe]] and also [[PenName the out-of-universe author]]. Some of them just use Qi as a framing device, but others are more self-referential, with characters questioning Qi on his writing style, or calling out errors in his account of events.

** 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/FantasticFourRiseOfTheSilverSurfer'' 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.
