* The Emergency Medical Hologram in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' has an appearance based on its creator. The creator makes a few guest appearances in later episodes.
** Invoked by the same creator by the Longterm Medical Holographic (LMH) program, based on Dr Julian Bashir, in the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode, "Dr. Bashir, I Presume." This would seem to be Dr. Zimmerman's M.O., and the EMH Mark II seen in a later episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' is likely no exception.

* Cortana from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' was not only physically modeled after her creator, Dr. Halsey, but the basis for her personality was a scan of Halsey's own brain. Notably, human-built artificial intelligence constructs are conventionally allowed to choose their holographic avatar, so presumably Cortana selected Halsey's appearance deliberately.

Notably, human-built "Smart" artificial intelligence constructs are conventionally allowed to choose always design their own holographic avatar, avatars (through a mysterious process that the AI itself doesn't necessarily understand), so presumably Cortana Cortana, at least subconsciously, selected Halsey's appearance deliberately.

* In one chapter of ''Fanfic/TiberiumWars'', Nod's LEGION AI drops in on Commander Logan Rawne to have a friendly chat. For reasons known only to itself, it chooses to replace its normal deep, imposing computer voice with a pitch-perfect mimicry of TimCurry. (When he recovers, Rawne deadpans that if LEGION starts singing "[[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Sweet Transvestite]]", he's going to start running.)

* ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' has a rather [[TimeyWimeyBall complex example]] also with Skynet. [[spoiler:John Connor gets turned into a T-3000 by Skynet in the form of a Terminator played by Creator/MattSmith. When Terminator!John goes back in time to ensure the creation of Genisys/Skynet in the new timeline, the holographic interface Skynet projects eventually starts looking like the Matt Smith Terminator. This would usually be considered a StableTimeLoop, except that this has already been established as a separate timeline, and the film ends with Judgment Day being stopped.]]

* In a voice-only example, the Cylon Imperious Leader in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Classic}}'' is voiced by Patrick Macnee, who later appears as Count Iblis. That their voices are the same is a plot point.
