Not to be confused with IAmSpartacus or IAmWho. Or "I am ''Who I'' am", which is the best translation that scholars can find for YHWH, the name of the Judeo-Christian God (the context of that quote isn't really an example of this trope either way).

* Averted in ''The Naked Spur'' (1953). BountyHunter Kemp drags the dead body of outlaw Vandergroat out of the river after his partner has been killed trying to drag it across the river. He gives this trope, but eventually decides to put his past behind him and go on to another life with Lina, SoleSurvivor of the gang of outlaws.

* An unusual villanous example in ''Film/KingdomOfHeaven'': the Templar Grand Master stands dripping blood from men, women and children and stares into the middle distance - "I am what I am... somebody has to be."

* This phrase and variants of it are repeated throughout the first book of the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, usually after one character or another laments that they wish they were someone else, who didn't have to worry about their magic or saving the world..

* Setsuna Sakurazaki from ''MahouSenseiNegima''. She's not particularly ashamed of the fact that she's [[HalfHumanHybrid half-tengu]] and therefore [[WingPull can sprout wings at will]], but she ''is'' ashamed of the fact that said wings are white rather than black (it's hinted she may be albino), which marked her as a instant outcast of her demon tribe. Never mind the fact that her TrueCompanions think [[FreakinessShame that the wings are awesome]] and that she looks like an angel.

* KingdomOfHeaven: A dark example. Raynaud de Chatillon has been shown to be an amoral KnightsTemplar (literally) throughout the movie before he's thrown in jail. He's eventually released, and the first thing he does is slaughter a Muslim caravan. Even he seems depressed by this, saying, "I am what I am. Someone has to be."

* Lucifer, from ''Literature/TheTragedyOfMan': "I cannot give anything other than my being." - that is, a scathing criticism of creation, to {{God}}. It didn't end well.
