* ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had a rather dark and depressing example in the episode "Sideshow". Killer Croc escapes from a prison transport and ends up stumbling across a small community of circus performers living in the woods. They see him as one of their own, and even defend him from Batman when he tracks him down. Croc seems to enjoy the acceptance and peace the group offers, but is unable to deny who he really is, and ends up trying to steal the performers savings. When the sealboy, who Croc had bonded with, tearfully asks him why just as Croc is lifted away by helicopter back to jail, he can only solemny reply with this.
--> '''Croc''': You said it yourself, kid. "Out here, you can be yourself". I guess thats what I was doing. Being myself.

* In an episode of ''Series/RedDwarf'', Kryten the android becomes human. At first he's thrilled, because mechanoids tend to view humans as awesome. As he starts belittling his origins and insulting his spare heads, he starts to realize that he can't change what he is inside; an android who can't tell the difference between Popeye and Descartes. Also, it provides this funny moment:
-->'''Human Kryten''' (Hands Lister a Poloroid photograph of his penis): Is that normal?
-->'''Lister:''' What, taking pictures of it and showing it to your mates? No, it's ''not''."
* Spike in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. "I may be love's bitch, but at least ''I'm'' man enough to admit it."
* Parodied in ''Series/TheCatherineTateShow''. Jamie, fed up with his grandmother constantly criticising and swearing at people, says in despair "Why are you like this?" She responds by launching into a rendition of "I Am What I Am" from ''La Cage aux Folles''.
* Spock throughout ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}''. He even addresses it word-for-word in "This Side of Paradise":
-->'''Spock''': I am what I am, [[GirlOfTheWeek Leila]], and if there are self-made purgatories, then we all have to live in them. Mine can be no worse than someone else's.
* One episode of ''Series/PushingDaisies'' has Ned say that he's not sorry or ashamed about [[{{Necromancy}} what he does]], because "it's what brought everyone I love into my life".
* Kurt from ''Series/{{Glee}}'': He decides he's not afraid to be who he is, and tells his father that he's proud to be who he is, and that he won't hide in the closet.
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'': Three words, "I'm. The. Todd"
* In episode seven of ''Series/GameOfThrones'', the MagnificentBastard Petyr Baelish describes to a couple of his "[[PaidHarem employees]]" the epiphany he had in regards to this trope after getting defeated in a duel, saying, "I learned that I'll never win, not that way. That's their game. Their rules. I'm not going to fight them. I'm going to fuck them. That is what I know. That's what I am." Rather than try to be a warrior, he vows to be TheChessmaster.
* In the season 3 premiere of ''Series/BreakingBad'', Jesse, [[spoiler:blaming himself for the death of Jane and the airplane crash that her distracted father accidentally caused]], tells Walter, "It's all about accepting who you really are. I accept who I am. I'm the bad guy."
* ''Series/VeronicaMars'': Invoked word for word in response to people sometimes calling her out on her role in upheaving people's lives (she's a private investigator - and naturally nosey).
* ''Series/MotherAndSon'' has a variant, in the context of Arthur being MistakenForGay:
-->'''Arthur''': It's just what people are! Some people are and some people aren't. But it doesn't matter whether they are or they aren't because they are what they are.
-->'''Maggie''': ...What?
-->'''Arthur''': I am what I am, and as it happens I'm not. But even if I was, I'd be what I'd be. But I'd still be what I am.
