* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode "[[Recap/SupernaturalS02E15TallTales Tall Tales]]" (which is TheRashomon), Dean retells an evening in a bar to Bobby as if he is a romantic Dream Sue, with hints of being a perfect [[TheHunter hunter]] as well. The entire setting is glamorized, and a girl just completely swoons over him and showers him with praise, while he insists that he has to do his "duty" of interviewing her because lives are at stake. Sam by contrast is turned into a whiny jerk who simply wants to interrupt Dean and his lover, eventually just descending into whining "BlahBlahBlah".

* In ''Film/{{UHF}}'', Weird Al's character has quite a few, including one where he's a bespectacled version of Franchise/{{Rambo}}, in a sequence lampooning how absurdly invincible that character is.



* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Homer Simpson occasionally indulges in this; he imagines or portrays himself as thin, muscular, hairy and witty (as opposed to shamefully intoxicated) when he is recalling past events or throwaway anecdotes of his life.

* Early on in {{Manga/Naruto}}, the titular character imagined himself as a smug MartyStu who always has to bail Sasuke out of trouble and save the day while winning Sakura's love.
* Tamaki from {{Ouran High School Host Club}} views himself as the one man who can charm anyone. This sorta works on half of the student body, since their rich stereotypes, but doesn't work on the normal (or "poor"). He often has fantasies with himself charming Haruhi and winning her love. This dream is unique as it not only shows Tamaki as a Dream Sue, but Haruhi as an AsianAirhead, laughing "Tee hee" as she wears a dress (despite having to pose as a boy), letting Tamaki twirl her around, stopping only to eat fatty tuna. The other members have given this fake Haruhi the nickname of "Dream-Haruhi".
** Played for laughs when a new transfer student who looks a lot like Haruhi transfers, and happend to be both a genius, an air head, and head-over-the-heels in love with Tamaki.

* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', when Church enters Caboose's mind, he finds that Caboose is only able to hold onto {{Flanderization}}s (and really bad ones) of the actual characters (and Tucker is also constantly putting himself down with child-like insults, because Caboose doesn't like him). Caboose's mental avatar is of course wise, skilled, and cool. (and feared by the Reds)

* In ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', Calvin is a MrImagination who has lots of Dream Sues, the most well-known recurring ones being Stupendous Man, Spaceman Spiff, and Tracer Bullet. Subverted with the fact that they always end up winning "[[DoomedMoralVictors Moral Victories]]" since the foes they go up against (Calvin's Mom, Ms. Wormwood, Rosaline) are people who have far more power and authority than Calvin.
