* ''TheBoondocks'' episode "The Legend of Catcher Freeman" reveals through a [[TheRashomon Rashomon]] that Catcher Freeman was basically this. He wasn't a mighty MemeticBadass who led a slave rebellion (Robert's version) or a PsychopathicManchild who was used as a hound to hunt slaves (Ruckus' version). Huey learns from the internet that he was merely a DirtyCoward who decided to stick with the rebels after he accidentally shot his own master/father, who he was about to sell his script to for his freedom. Naturally Robert and Ruckus choose to ignore this.

* Trevor Beauregard, Pinkerton detective, loves exaggerating his accomplishments to his kind brother in French comic ''ComicBook/CottonKid''. Said kid brother is the actual hero of the series. In this instance, even the actual protagonist buys into the FakeUltimateHero's hype.

** Weirdly enough, Mr. Satan is one of the very few characters on the show to [[DeathIsCheap have not died once]]. The whole ''planet'' is blown up by Buu, but he is spared because he befriended Buu in a previous incarnation and apparently he still has a soft spot for him. It also helped that Goku was closer to him than his own family when he got the hell out of dodge, too.

The whole ''planet'' When Super Buu unleashes his Human Extinction Attack (which does exactly what you think it does), he didn't target Mr. Satan with it due to having fat Buu's memories of him. And when the Earth is blown up eventually destroyed by Kid Buu, but he is spared because he befriended Buu in a previous incarnation and apparently he still has a soft spot for him.

* In ''SoRaNoWoTo'', Klaus is a simple courier who has been promoted to Major simply because of time served. However, he shares a name and looks similar to the legendary tankman [[RedBaron Desert Wolf]] Klaus, so Kureha, upon meeting him, thought he was that legendary hero, and was so enthusiastic about that no one had the heart to tell her the truth. She ''does'' find out eventually, but doesn't mind since in the meantime he has become an ''actual'' hero by saving her from drowing in a river.

* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' is filled with examples, due to the fact, that main character, constantly saves the world, while credit to all of his good deeds goes to someone else. Most notable example is [[spoiler: King]] who moved to the S-class hero and was dubbed "strongest man in the world", despite the complete lack of any combat skill.
