* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' featured a brief cameo from a contest winner.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode "Dexter and Computress Get Mandark" was based on a story written by a kid who submitted a story for the show and he himself narrated the episode.

* PlayedFor Laughs in the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Red Man's Greed". Throughout the episode, we see a random kid with "ALEX" written on his shirt, who gives [[MandatoryLines fairly pointless lines]] that could have been cut. He does, however, manage to give AnAesop at the end, leading to the very last exchange of the episode:

* As a joke for ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14293468/homestuck-adventure-game Kickstarter Project]], AndrewHussie offered to canonize the [[OriginalCharacter fantroll]] of anyone who donated $10,000 or more. Well, two people took him up on that offer.

** From the same company, during the popularity peak of the ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial'' series, Konami organized the "Tokimeki Teens" marketing program. In there, they selected one idol among a bunch of candidates, and this idol would get [[AsHimself her fictionalized version of herself]] in the ''Drama Series'' games of the series, as well as being able to produce various songs. The winner of this contest was Mie Kuribayashi. Let's just say she quickly fell back in the shadows after the ''Drama Series'' were done.
