* Inverted by ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankToolsOfDestruction'', which sees fit to remind you that you're a Lombax ''at every opportunity''. Makes sense if you're meeting a new character, but even ones you see multiple times continue to remark on your Lombaxness, and Ratchet never acts like he's tired of being reminded of his own species or comments on it at all, despite being a DeadpanSnarker.

* The Pasternoster Gang from ''Series/DoctorWho''. OncePerEpisode Madame Vastra and Jenny point out that they're lesbians even though this fact has been well-established by now. And almost every line out of ProudWarriorRaceGuy Strax's mouth involves either [[RunningGag suggesting unneccessary amounts of violence]] or declaring that he's doing something "for the glory of the Sontaran Empire."

** Chakotay from Voyager has a habit of connecting every topic of conversation to some spiritual or cultural element of his Native American heritage.

* Parodied in the ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Webcomic/ParadoxSpace'' strip ''Summerteen Romance'', in which Dave is reading Karkat's script for a romantic comedy starring the trolls out loud, and adding his own "improvements". After Karkat explains he adapted it for human culture, Dave starts reading the scored out troll concepts (for instance "lusus" crossed out and replaced with "dad"). Then he gives Feferi a line where every second ''word'' is Have I Mentioned I'm A Troll Today? with a line though it. Karkat is not amused.

** Near the end of ''Discworld/TheTruth'', as William's housemate Mr. Windling goes off on yet another racist rant, one of the other people at the table peels a boiled egg, salts it... and then pulls out a very small ax and ''very precisely'' cuts the top off. At this point Mr. Windling realizes he probably shouldn't complain about there being too many dwarves in Ankh-Morpork, at least not until after breakfast.

You're just strolling along, life is amazing. But no matter how well things are going, there's always that one guy mistakes you for a bearded gnome. And for a dwarf like you, nothing spoils your day like this.

But wait, you can prevent this! All you need to do is inform the people around you of your dwarvenhood before they call you a gnome. Everyone. All the time. Even if you're with people whom you've known for a long time.

* In the song "Country Boy," Aaron Lewis wants to remind you that he's a country boy by calling up [[ClicheStorm every country cliche he can]] in the span of 4 minutes or so. It's basically a JeffFoxworthy routine played straight and set to music.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': "I am KROGAN!" Although Grunt, at least, means it not as identity but ''equivalence''. That is, he's not saying "I am ''a'' krogan"; he's saying "I am ''the'' krogan". (He was [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke genetically engineered]] to be the "perfect" krogan warrior, so it's hard to argue.)

** And then there's Nobby Nobbs, who's just so ugly and disreputable that no-one can tell what he is. He has to carry a card around certifying that Lord Vetinari, having examined all available evidence including testimony from the ''midwife who delivered him herself'' believes that the balance of probability leans ''slightly'' towards him being human.

Later books have hinted he may be part goblin, and a goblin woman is the only one to ever seriously court him without extenuating circumstances.

* Magnus Shalefist in ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' is literally this, always reminding you of how awesome it is to be a native mountain dwarf affiliated with one of the major clan. [[spoiler:While he ''is'' a dwarf, he's from the city, real name Malcolm Schulefest. All the usual stuff about gold, beards, and fighting he got from an Almanac of All Things Dwarven - written by a human no less - and he talks it up to cover his own insecurities at being too far from his heritage. In the end, it turns out he ''is'' related to a clan, the legendary Iron Clan, which he leads or even becomes king of all the dwarves.]]
