* Creator/DougWalker ''really'' has a thing for broken, insane jerks who'll never get what they want but they'll keep on trying. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is a perfect example of this, and WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses is getting there (as a more depraved version) with the amount of SanitySlippage he's been put through. You also notice that much of the comedy he enjoys (ranging from WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck to Series/{{Blackadder}}) is based on this.

* Creator/IsaacAsimov had a recurring theme of comfort vs progress in sci-fi settings. Centrally controlled comfort with no wars and crime, or chaotic competition and space exploration that will inevitably include wars and crime.

** We also have former Wizards of the Coast employee Monte Cook, creator of the game's 3rd Edition and a strong hand in creating 5th Edition too. Monte really, ''really'' believed in LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards and went to great lengths to enforce it in all the wrong ways. For years, martial classes were either built on poorly conceived rules (3E Monks), ridiculously generic and boring to play (3E Fighters), or just straight up sucked (3.5E Samurai). Caster classes on the other hand enjoyed highly overpowered spell lists granting them in unprecedented breadth of ability plus new-fangled metamagic feats to back them up; by mid-level a lone, half-competently played Druid or Cleric was probably equal to ''three'' well-played martial {{PC}}s of the same level. And don't get us started on [[CreatorsPet Wizards]], the preferred class of Monte and people who hated losing in 3.5E, utterly dominant at all levels and pillars of play (except being perhaps a tad weak at 1st level).

Miyamoto has admitted to being a [[TheWestern Western]] fan, which is particularly apparent in the 3D ''Zelda'' games. For example, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' all have [[PowerupMount Epona]], ''Ocarina of Time'' has Lon Lon Ranch, ''Majora's Mask'' has Romani Ranch, and ''Twilight Princess'' has the redesigned Kakariko Village, the Hidden Village, Ordon Ranch and the plot similarities with ''TheSearchers''.\\

* British comedian Creator/RikMayall seems to like politics. Various references to the subject pop up in every episode of ''Series/TheYoungOnes'', ''Series/FilthyRichAndCatflap'' and ''Series/{{Bottom}}''. So playing the lead role in ''Series/TheNewStatesman'' must have been a dream come true for him.
