* If Tyrion from ''Series/GameOfThrones'' doesn't mention his status as a dwarf (in this case, an actual little person, not a fantasy dwarf) during a conversation, rest assured whoever he's talking to will.
** For that matter, Jon Snow being a bastard is brought up in almost any conversation he has with anyone except perhaps Sam. One would almost think bastards were rare in Westeros, considering how people react to him, but they're all over the place.

* Klingons are like this in the ''Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse''. In the ''Literature/StarTrekKlingonEmpire'' series in particular, a great many characters are somewhat obsessed with "being Klingon", and make a point of it routinely. It's relatively justified, in that Klingon society has recently undergone tremendous upheaval and is now trying to reaffirm a sense of what being Klingon means. Characters evaluate their own behaviour, and that of their fellows, against the expected conduct of the ideal Klingon. This is particularly true of Toq (who grew up ignorant of his heritage and now embraces it enthusiastically -- perhaps a little too enthusiastically), and Klag (who takes his obligations to the [[KnightsTemplar "Order of the Bat'leth"]] extremely seriously).

* 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.)
