** Ironically, it could be said that Harry has this towards Ron to an extent as well. Ron has a relatively normal life (at least until Harry gets involved), he isn't constantly in the spotlight being judged, and (at first) he knows more about the magical world than Harry. But most important of all, Ron has a large loving family while Harry doesn't. Of course this is also taken care of at the end of the series [[spoiler: with Harry becoming a part of the Wealsey family by marrying Ron's sister.]]

* In ''ComicBook/TheFlash'', there's Eobard Thawne, the first Reverse-Flash. He was a Flash fanboy who studied the Speed Force and managed to replicate Barry Allen's accident, giving himself super speed. He later becomes determined to ''be'' Barry Allen, having plastic surgery to look like him and trying to steal his wife. His attempts fail, and when trying to outright take Barry's place in history, he finds he can't; he's inspired by Barry, so Barry ''must'' become the Flash or Eobard's timeline doesn't exist. His hero worship turns to seething hatred, and he instead determines to make Barry's life an absolute hell -- he made need Barry Allen, but everyone else is just window dressing.

* In Creator/{{Disney}}'s AnimatedAdaptation of ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', King Louie sings a musical number "I Wan'na Be Like You" about how much he envies humans. Not a pure example, as Louie doesn't actually want to be Mogli specifically.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'': Sunset Shimmer, Princess Celestia's personal student before Twilight Sparkle, doesn't necessarily want to be Twilight Sparkle, but she certainly wants to have what Twilight has (princesshood, immense responsibilities, world-altering magical power, and the esteem and admiration of those around her) -- until her HeelFaceTurn at the end of the first film.

The difference, of course, being that Twilight ''earned'' those things while Sunset feels like she has but really just wants to take the easy way to them. After her HeelFaceTurn at the end HeelFaceTurn, ironically, she eventually ''does'' [[KarmicJackpot legitimately earn much of the first film.what Twilight had and she lacked]].

* The final arcs of ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX'' has a very disturbing variation: Bullseye has been hired to kill Frank, and comes to the conclusion that the best way to do this is to relive Frank's life: by finding his safehouses, sleeping in them... and reenacting the Central Park shootout that turned Frank into the Punisher. Three times. And the worst part is that it ''worked'': Bullseye is able to extrapolate Frank's last words to his wife and repeat them to him, causing a HeroicBSOD.

* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' introduced Isabelle, Zii {{fangirl}} extraordinaire. In addition to displaying StalkerWithACrush behaviour, she also requests that people call her "Izz", and at one point she even accidentally says the trope name out loud before [[VerbalBackspace quickly changing it]] to "be ''like'' you".

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'', while not actually part of Raiden's character he does have a lot of hero worship towards Snake. This trope is actually in effect towards ''the player'' regarding how the story is written about wanting to be as cool as Snake from the first game, only to realize with horror not just what it would entail to become like him, but how ''easy'' it can be done to the point it ends up not being special at all.
