* A ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' episode from 1996 that was hosted by recent Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes featured a ''Series/{{Nightline}}'' sketch in which the topic of discussion is a ''Literature/PrimaryColors''-like RomanAClef about the 1996 GOP race. The book's Anonymous Author is obviously Forbes himself given the MarySue-like terms in which the character "Teve Torbes" is described.

**In ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/3334397 PYRO MEETS THE ENTERPRISE by PYRO]]'', [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 the Pyro]] is [[InformedAttractiveness very handsome]] (even though he wears a mask) and [[HumorDissonance very funny]] and saves everyone hooray!

* Alan tries to write a book several times during an episode of ''TwoAndAHalfMen'' called "Baseball Was Better With Steroids". All the attempts seem to go like a Mary Sueish representation of himself.

Added DiffLines:

* In one episode of ''Series/TheLoveBoat'', Isaac tries his hand at writing, but can't decide on the genre (his opening paragraphs, as read by other crew members, are all examples of StylisticSuck). He finally turns to a textbook example of this trope; Gopher's name is changed to "Muskrat," etc. His fellow crew members are not amused.

* In ''SuikodenIII'', there's Erk de Forever from 'Erk's Adventures', penned by 'Hitman Bravo', [[spoiler:aka Ace.]]
** There was also the "historical" play, "Imperial Love," written by Milich Oppenheimer. It casts Milich as the hero of the Scarlet Moon War in SuikodenI. For the unaware, Milich started the war BrainwashedAndCrazy and came close to destroying the hero's army.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', LoveableSexManiac Hlaalu Councilor Crassius Curio is this. He has written a semi-pornographic play called ''The Lusty Argonian Maid'' in which "Crantius Colto" is the main character getting his "spear" polished by the eponymous [[LizardFolk Argonian]] Maid. It was so popular that it received a sequel come ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''.

*** And, sadly, it looks like ''that'' "ending" is the only ending that series is going to get.

* Done in a similar vein on ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' in which Alex writes a graphic novel and, due to being a wizard, can actually [[PortalPicture "live it"]], turning herself in [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses a princess]].

** "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps" features each member of the study group telling a scary story. In every one, the characters of the story are [[WriteWhatYouKnow clearly analogous to]] (and played by) members of the study group. Every one has elements of this, but the worst offender is Pierce, who tells a story about Magnum, a young, virile man who is still relevant, pausing from having sex with three women at once to beat up a pair of gun-wielding hoodlums with his GagPenis. Runner-up is Shirley, who writes a ''LeftBehind''-esque story about a bunch of jerks who bullied their nice Christian friend who definitely isn't named Shirley, but then the Rapture comes and she saves them from Satan with her powers of faith just long enough to forgive them for mocking her before going to Heaven. [[HypocriticalHumor Leaving them all to be horribly tortured by Satan.]]
