* 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.

Jaime and there are subtle hints of it in the show too. She frequently discusses what she would do if she were in Jaime's position, laments that she was born a woman and treated differently than him, and favours metallic accoutrements that simulate armour.armour, such as when she dons an armoured dress when the Battle of Blackwater looks to be turning in Stannis' favor. This in turn ''may'' something to do with her spitefulness at Brienne at the Purple Wedding, Brienne having seemingly defied her supposed station far more successfully than Cersei ''and'' being noticeably close(r) to Jaime.

*''Webcomic/CheeseInTheTrap'' Min Soo, who idolizes Seol so much that she mimics her fashion, her hair color and style, and even her habit of tucking her hair behind her ears. One example is when Seol gets a limited edition pair of pants that her friend designed and rocks it as part of an outfit...and Min Soo freaks out because it's something she couldn't mimic because it was out of character. Until she walks in with the exact same pants the next day. When Seol drops her charm that Jung gave her, Min Soo finds it, keeps it and pretends she bought it (later Seol finds out there's no way she could have because it sold out). It gets worse when during the school presentations, Seol recognizes that Min Soo bought her slides from a previous class and made no changes to it. This results in Min Soo breaking down that she inadvertently copied Seol, and now the whole class was catching on. Currently, she's now copying someone else and pulling it off easier...but still compares herself to Seol in a resentful demeanor now.

It is hinted that Sue, at that point in the series, had rather intense self-loathing issues and thought Blythe was leading a more fulfilling life than hers.
