Added DiffLines:

* The entirety of the ''Series/{{Chespirito}}'' cast got under the influence of this trope, with their better known characters practically becoming their nicknames. With some exceptions, this is partly {{justified|Trope}} due to [[TheDanza some characters having the same name as their actors]]:
** Chespirito himself is the only one that, while still more identified by [[Series/ElChavoDelOcho El Chavo]], was also associated with Series/ElChapulinColorado. It helps that he was the only actor that always played the same character in the latter series.
** While not without character rights disputes with Chespirito, Carlos Villagrán (Quico) and Maria Antonieta de las Nieves (La Chilindrina) embraced the association to the point there were some unsuccessful series with their characters as lead stars. Later on they did circus shows all across latin america as their characters.
** Ramón Valdés is a {{justified|Trope}} case - other cast members described that Don Ramón [[AsHimself was essentially Ramón Valdés under poverty]]. After permanently leaving ''El Chavo del Ocho'' in 1981, he eventually joined Carlos Villagrán in ''¡Ah, qué Kiko!''... as Don Ramón. Interestingly, Ramón Valdés is often associated with how El Chavo often calls Don Ramón: [[{{Malaproper}} Ron Damón]] - when Ramón passed away in 1988, some newspapers titled the news of his death in the lines of "¡Murió Ron Damón!"[[note]]Ron Damón died![[/note]], and during his funeral, Angelines Fernández (who worked with Ramón before ''Chespirito'') called him "Rorro", just how Doña Clotilde, her character, called Don Ramón in the series. ''Chespirito'' also happened to be Ramón's jump to fame - out of the three Valdés brothers, Ramón was often stuck into minor roles before joining the series.
** Angelines Fernández originally had a bad case of this trope, with kids calling her a witch and generally being scared of her, which got her sad, but eventually got over it.
** Similarly, Florinda Meza has to cope with the fact her character in ''El Chavo del Ocho'', Doña Florinda, is mostly disliked. Some actions she took in-real-life did not ease her image with fans of the series, however.
** After the show was cancelled, Rubén Aguirre (Profesor Jirafales) and Edgar Vivar (Señor Barriga/Ñoño) did the same thing as Carlos Villagrán and María Antonieta de las Nieves, and played their characters in circus shows in latin america.
** María Antonieta de las Nieves and Edgar Vivar, before and after ''Chespirito'', respectively, performed voice acting. María Antonieta took part in dubs of several famous series of the 1960s, but her voice's often not recognized in those series, while Edgar Vivar performed voice acting roles in some animated films such as ''Film/{{Ratatouille}}'' and ''Film/{{Up}}'' - yet his roles tend to be considered as "Señor Barriga doing voice acting".

* When Creator/RichardWilson guest starred in ''Series/FatherTed'' AsHimself, he beat Ted up for using [[OneFootInTheGrave Victor Meldrew's]] catchphrase on him.

*** Walter Koenig having played these two roles is spoofed in the Finnish ''Franchise/StarTrek''[=/=]''Series/BabylonFive'' {{Crossover}} parody ''WebOriginal/StarWreck: In the Pirkinning''. Janos Honkonen was [[ActorAllusion deliberately cast]] as both Sergei Fukov of P-Fleet (parodies on Pavel Chekov and Starfleet, respectively) and Festerbester of Babel-13 (parodies on Alfred Bester and Babylon-5, respectively) just to have the same face on these two characters.

* This could possibly affect Creator/KieferSutherland for younger viewers who only know him as [[Series/TwentyFour Jack Bauer]]. While Sutherland was involved in numerous movies prior to ''24'' (mainly ''Film/TheLostBoys'' and cult hit ''Film/DarkCity''), he never really stood out in the medium, and was often in the shadow of his actor-father, Donald Sutherland. Even ''24'' co-creator Howard Gordon was initially hesitant to give him the role because of his former "Brat Pack" years. The movies he was involved in during ''24''[='=]s airing (i.e., the sniper in ''Film/PhoneBooth'' and a Jack Bauer Expy in ''Film/TheSentinel'') only served to exacerbate his former reputation. Nevertheless, despite the exhaustion Kiefer Sutherland felt during ''24'' (which might've attributed to his off-screen antics like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCiageqMHJc tackling Christmas trees]], and his constant drinking leading him to buzzed interviews and 45 days in jail)), he remains extremely grateful and humble for the years he spent on ''24'', and wouldn't want to take them away for the world. Sutherland did eventually shine in his voice acting performance as Boss/Punished Snake in ''[[MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain Metal Gear Solid V]]'', replacing Creator/DavidHayter.

** This wasn't the first time Hamill's done that - his appearance on ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' had him crash-land as Luke Skywalker, and insist on fetching his "[[UncannyFamilyResemblance cousin]]" Mark Hamill whenever he was asked to perform in a sketch

** Parodied in the Treehouse of Horror segment "Desperately Xeeking Xena", in which everyone who encountered ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' star Creator/LucyLawless addressed her as "Xena", much to her exasperation. Eventually, at the end of the segment when Bart and Lisa have rescued her from The Collector (Comic Book Guy as a nerdy supervillian), she offers to take them home -- and so picks them up and begins to fly. "Xena can't fly!" Lisa exclaims. Lucy's response? "I told you, I'm ''not'' Xena. I'm Lucy Lawless." Apparently, Lucy Lawless ''can'' fly.

* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' has another Creator/MarkHamill AsHimself example. Milo lines up to get his autograph, but only because he confused him with ''Dorothy'' Hamill. As Mark Hamill tries to explain who he actually is, listing various roles he's played, someone in the back of the line screams that he was Luke Skywalker. Hamill immediately has security drag that fan away, then screams that he had that role ''twenty years ago, people,'' get over it.

* Creator/SylvesterStallone was well on his way to being Film/{{Rocky}} forever and ever. Now he's Rocky and Franchise/{{Rambo}}, and maybe Film/JudgeDredd, otherwise known as "action guy who talks funny, (and isn't Ahnold.)" Ironically, he was initially touted as "[[HilariousInHindSight the next Marlon Brando]]" because of how well he played Rocky, the critics being unaware that he was playing himself.

*** Creator/BrentSpiner wishes people would stop calling him Data. This was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in an episode of ''Series/{{Joey}}'' where he guest starred AsHimself. He saw it coming, too. In an interview with ''Magazine/TVGuide'' on the GrandFinale of ''The Next Generation'', he said that for the rest of his career, he would be "That guy who played Data!" He has also made a self-deprecating cameo appearance on ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', trying to break even by selling Data collectible toys from the boot of his car. .

** Creator/IanMcKellen has largely managed to escape being forever known as Gandalf by becoming forever as Magneto instead - a role, remarkably, that he was playing at the same time as the Rings films were coming out. He also nearly became Dumbledore after Richard Harris' death, which would have meant that he essentially cornered the market on some of the most iconic fictional characters ever, but turned it down partly for this reason and partly because Harris had criticised him and he didn't feel it would be right to take on the role.

** Creator/EmmaWatson took huge steps to avoid this as soon as the films wrapped, cutting her hair short and taking vastly different roles in ''Film/ThePerksOfBeingAWallflower'' and ''Film/TheBlingRing'' to shake off any ContractualPurity. She's set to star in a live action remake of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', so it remains to be seen if she ends up getting Spocked as Belle rather than Hermione.

** Creator/JamesEarlJones was always more of a theater actor; he [[ClassicallyTrainedExtra did a lot of Shakespeare]], was one of the first African Americans to play Othello and debuted the role of Troy in August Wilson's ''Theatre/{{Fences}}''. While he will always be known as "the voice of Darth Vader", Vader was always a side-bit for him anyway. There are some who say that he eventually ended up Spocking himself again as the voice of Creator/{{CNN}}.

** Creator/KelseyGrammer will probably always be identified with his eponymous role in ''Series/{{Frasier}}''. After all, he not only played it for 11 years in that show, but portrayed the same character for 9 years before that in ''Series/{{Cheers}}''. Though he has won a lot of acclaim (including a Golden Globe) for playing the main character in ''Boss''. Mayor Kane is certainly intelligent and articulate like Frasier, but is also extremely profane, violent, cruel and calculating. A far cry from the arrogant but ultimately lovable character he's so identified with.
