* Koromaru from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' is a FictionalCounterpart of UsefulNotes/{{Hachiko}}.

* The "[=McDowells=]" restaurant in ''Film/ComingToAmerica'' is essentially [=McDonald's=] with a few minor cosmetic changes. This is hilariously parodied and lampshaded, in that the owner, Mr. [=McDowell=], is very defensive about these cosmetic changes and lives in perpetual terror of [=McLawyers=] calling him out about this. For example, his Big Mick is most definitely different from the Big Mac: "They both contain two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions. But they use a sesame seed bun. My buns have no seeds." As for the similar logos, "They got the Golden Arches, mine the Golden Arcs." Later in the film, when [=McDowell=] is first confronted by King Jaffe Joffer, he is seen reading a McDonalds operation manual.

** John Berryman (Visser Four) isn't quite a FictionalCounterpart of John Barrymore, but he ''was'' a Shakespearean actor, though not a very good one.
