* Square-Enix designer Tetsuya Nomura is heavily inspired by Japanese street fashions and style trends.
** Nomura likes to give his ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' protagonists, and often as many of his characters as possible, a stud in their left ear, imitating Nomura's own piercing. Note that in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIIRemake'', for which the characters were redesigned by a new artist, Cloud is missing his Nomura ear piercing (which he has in ''all'' other appearances).

* Shigeru Miyamoto has implemented personal interests into many of his games, including ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' (gardening), ''VideoGame/{{Nintendogs}}'', ''VideoGame/WiiFit'', and ''Wii Music''. Nintendo later banned him from talking about his current hobbies. His earlier works were rather definitely based on his childhood experiences, too. In fact, the premise of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' was based on his exploration of caves as a child. In an interview for a game-developer site, he flat-out tells other designers to base their games on things they like.\\

* Creator/MatthewBright uses lurid violence, serial killers, strong profanity and hard-edged satire seen in his films ''Film/Freeway'' and ''Film/Bundy''.

* Creator/AkiraToriyama has a thing for vehicles. Give the ''Manga/DragonBall'' manga a lookthrough and count how many of the chapter cover pages not directly related to the storyline feature some kind of detailed vehicle. He outright admitted that the main character of his 1987 one-shot ''SONCHOH'' is the car, and not the old man who drives it. This is also {{Lampshaded}} in an {{omake}} of his ''Manga/DoctorSlump'' manga, where Toriyama's editor calls him out for always drawing some sort of vehicle on the covers and asks him if the main character of the manga is a car.

ThemeNaming is another giveaway, particularly of the [[EdibleThemeNaming edible]] variety. If one or more characters in a given work are named after garments and/or food, even if the work in question is otherwise not meant to be tongue-in-cheek, there's a very good chance Toriyama had a hand in making it.

** {{Hawaii}}an pidgin pops up regularly in her works; Melisa lived for many years on Oahu. The TranslationConvention version of the Belter pidgin in the ''Skyrider'' series, for example, is strongly reminiscent of Hawaiian pidgin.

* Creator/{{Ri2}}'s most well known fics are DarkerAndEdgier continuations of works like ''KingdomHearts'' or ''[[FanFic/LatiasJourney Pokemon]]'' that tend to [[GoingCosmic Go Cosmic]] near the end. Also, a character named "Mewgle" that tends to show up for a cameo appearance or some sort of sub-plot.

* Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold loves riverboating on the Ohio, and more than half of ''The Sharing Knife: Passage'' focuses on this pastime. Also horses and gardening.

** She also loves to reference music and the performing arts, and many of her protagonists are professional or amateur entertainers. ''Literature/BardicVoices'' is the most obvious example, but three of the ''Literature/ElementalMasters'' novels focus on the world of turn-of-the-century show business and another includes MagicMusic as a major plot device. Lackey is a [[FilkSong filk musician]].

** She loves to include birds and intelligent avian creatures in her fantasy novels. Valdemar has gryphons, ''tervardi,'' and the Tayledras ("Hawkbrothers") and their semi-intelligent [[BondCreatures bond birds]]; the [[Literature/BardicVoices Free Bards books]] all have bird-themed titles; and ''Literature/TheBlackSwan'' has a minor character who's interested in falconry, who later received a short story of her own.

** As well as this, several characters across his works espouse the idea that {{revenge}} is a 'sucker's game' (e.g., David Xanatos from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', Flint 'Sandman' Marko from ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', LexLuthor from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''). As well as this, characters in those same works that spend their lives pursuing revenge tend to be miserable for it.
