** Frank himself is a beefy Creator/ClintEastwood in the first arc; this particularly evident when he's held prisoner by Microchip.

** This has also been reflected in other media has well, as Creator/DavidKaye in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', Creator/TomKane in ''MarvelUltimateAlliance'', and Creator/JimWard in ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'' and ''TheSuperHeroSquadShow'' all have emulated Stewart in their turns as Xavier. Averted in several ''X-Men'' video games as they did actually get Patrick Stewart to reprise the role in them.

* In Creator/NeilGaiman and Creator/{{Dave McKean}}'s ''ComicBook/BlackOrchid'', Carl Thorne looks like the young MarlonBrando, while ComicBook/LexLuthor often looks like the older Brando (especially when he's on the videophone--he seems to be based on Brando in ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' then).

* When she first appeared in ''Comicbook/SecretWar'', Daisy Johnson/Quake was drawn to look ''exactly'' like AngelinaJolie as she appeared in ''Film/{{Hackers}}''. As time went on, the resemblance lessened.

** In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Lex Luthor was based on Telly Savalas and Metallo seems to have been based on Creator/JamesCoburn, while Dan "Terrible" Turpin is modeled after his creator, Creator/JackKirby. Likely because Season 2 started airing in 1997, the same year as the ''Film/{{Steel}} movie, the show's version of John Henry Irons was designed to look like Shaquille O'Neal, who plated Irons in the movie.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' ran into some legal trouble by using Music/{{Gackt}} as basis for Squall's design, although Gackt was a fan of the series and appeared in an InkSuitActor capacity as a ''Compilation of VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' character in later games. Cid Kramer also has a very strong resemblance to Creator/RobinWilliams.

* Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' was based after a famous 90s heartthrob actor... but the developers have purposefully obscured which actor it was, other than that he was 'who you would think of when you thought of a handsome actor at that time'. One of the features taken from the actor was his distinctive, pointed nose, leading many to speculate that River Phoenix, who had a similar pointed nose to the Link art, was the inspiration. Other theories suggest Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio.
