** There's also a RunningGag of characters reading newspapers that have headlines extolling a godlike "Author", who does things like winning the Nobel Prize, jamming with Music/BruceSpringsteen, and dating beautiful supermodels.

* Quite common in Creator/WoodyAllen's films. Even among the films Allen doesn't act in. ''Film/DeconstructingHarry'' is built on the interaction between the writer protagonist (played by Allen) and several characters from his fictional pieces, including one ("Ken") who states he's a "thinly disguised version of you".

In ''Film/BulletsOverBroadway'', John Cusack spends the whole movie doing a very accurate impression of Woody Allen.

* Creator/HideoKojima himself can be recruited by Big Boss in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' and ''MetalGearSolidVGroundZeroes''. And if the player uses the save data download feature in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', Hideo can be brought to Mother Base there as well.

* [[Music/PinkFloyd Roger Waters]] is Pink in ''Music/TheWall''. Pink also has a bit of Syd Barrett.

* ''Literature/NewsFromNowhere'' has a prologue explaining that it recounts an event that befell a comrade, of whom the author says, "I understand the feeling and desires of the comrade of whom I am telling better than any one else in the world does". It's pretty clear that the protagonist is a stand-in for the author himself.

* ''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 MagnificentBasatard 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.

* Mokona from ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' represents (unsurprisingly) Mokona Apapa, the lead Creator/{{CLAMP}} mangaka. Though she's only the lead artist. Ageha Okawa is a lead scriptwriter, and her (new) name, meaning "Butterfly", obviously explains CLAMP's penchant for butterflies in their recent works.

* Shouji Kawamori, one of the creators and current mastermind behind the ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' franchise, appeared in several episodes of the recent ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' as a taciturn movie director, filming the ''[[ShowWithinAShow in-universe]]'' version of ''Anime/MacrossZero''. He was drawn in his perfect likeness except for a thick, bushy beard.

* Scorpion may very well be this for ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' co-creator and executive producer Ed Boon. 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 has recently become the [[SeriesMascot icon for Netherrealm Studios' logo]], albeit with a slightly different design and weapon (a sickle instead of a chain-tipped kunai). On the flip side, it's unknown if Sonya and Tanya qualify for this status, although Boon [[WordOfGod does admit that they're named after his sisters, Sonya and Tania.]] Additionally, Noob Saibot's name comes from the last names of the creators of the ''Mortal Kombat'' franchise, Ed Boon and John Tobias, [[SdrawkcabName spelled in reverse]].

* The Cartoonist in Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}. Originally an anonymous background character simply assumed to be the author, he has recently put himself in the spotlight.

* Lady Delphine in the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series is slightly one of these. She shares the author's LawOfInverseFertility backstory and resultant tendency to take in "strays."
