* In JunjouRomantica, Usagi writes BoysLove novels about a very very thinly-disguised version of himself, in which "he" gets to have sex with his long-term crush; later, when he gets into a relationship in real life, he puts a [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized version]] of his boyfriend Misaki into his novels, much to Misaki's disgust. The novels were later [[{{Defictionalized}} written for real]], under the series title ''Junai Romantica''.

* The first few episodes of the 2001 anime of ''Manga/Cyborg009'' have 007 writing his account of the group's daring escape from Black Ghost. When 003 reads some, it's all about how 007 saved everyone and won the love of a blonde countess. She comments on how skewed a perspective it has.

* A slight variation: instead of creating a fictional world where he was a hero, DoctorDoom and the Puppet Master once transplanted the ComicBook/FantasticFour's consciousnesses into tiny robots, altered their memories to have them leading mundane lives in which they had never gotten powers, and stuck them in a miniature model of a town. Doom "wrote" himself into their lives by masquerading as Reed's JerkAss boss, who spent all his time bullying Reed mercilessly, docking his pay, forcing him to work overtime, ridiculing his work, and generally making his life miserable. This scenario is probably one of Doom's Top Five Wet Dreams (which ''all'' probably revolve around making Reed's life hell), so despite Doom being a villain even in his own story, it fits the entire purpose of a SelfInsertFic to a tee. Or perhaps he was deluded enough to think that his character ''was'' a hero for tormenting that accursed Richards.

[[folder:Radio]] *In the ''Tom Wrigglesworth's Hang-Ups'' episode "How to Make a Killing", Tom's dad has started a creative writing course and started writing a historical detective story: -->'''Dad''': The secret to success in a murder mystery, son, is to have a compelling detective. As [[Creator/ArthurConanDoyle Conan Doyle]] had [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Holmes]], as Creator/AgathaChristie had Literature/MissMarple, so I have Superintendent Wrigglesworth.\\ '''Tom''': Superintendent Wrigglesworth?\\ '''Dad''': A man who men want to be, and women want to be with. He's got incredible powers of observation, takes pride in his work, and he doesn't suffer fools gladly. Which is why he doesn't get on very well with his son, Tim. Tim is a great disappointment to Superintendent Wrigglesworth. One of life's wasters, Tim has a chronic lack of punctuality and fails to take on-board useful advice, even when it's offered with the best of intentions.\\ '''Tom''': [[SarcasmMode Where do you get these ideas from, Dad?]] ::Later in the book, Tim gets kicked to death by a shire-horse. Tom's dad cheerfully informs him that he really enjoyed writing that bit. [[/folder]]

** "Horror Fiction in Six 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.

* ''[[{{Blackadder}} Blackadder The Third]]'' episode "Ink and Incapability" has Edmund's epic novel, titled ''Edmund: A Butler's tale'' under the pseudonym Gertrude Perkins. We never actually hear any excerpts, but Doctor Samuel Johnson[[note]]Inventor of the dictionary[[/note]] calls it "a huge rollercoaster of a novel crammed with sizzling gypsies" and is eager to patronize it. Baldrick turns out to have thrown it on the fire.

** The original ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' series can be interpreted this way from the perspective of the much more mundane alternate universe spin-off ''Manga/TheVanishingOfNagatoYukiChan''. At the end of the anime, they decide that they should do something literature-based since they're a literature club in this timeline, and decide to write a story about their adventures as a club. Their adventures included versions of many events and side-characters from the original series, but without the supernatural elements. Haruhi is just as much of an egotist in this timeline, so it's easy to interpret the original series as their novel project, having been hijacked by Haruhi who made the world revolve around her (which also explains why her main rival in ''Disappearance'' is quickly written out in ''Melancholy'').
