* In his novels ''Tarzan Alive'' and ''Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life,'' Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer's claims that Edgar Rice Burroughs and Lester Dent were just the biographers of Literature/{{Tarzan}} and Franchise/DocSavage. He claims that their books were highly fictionalized and sensationalized and presents somewhat more mundane, but still sensational versions of the stories that correct various factual inaccuracies and continuity errors. For example, he explains that whenever Tarzan encountered a lion, a plains dwelling animal, in the jungle, it was actually a leopard and Burroughs exaggerated because lions were bigger and more dangerous looking. He also tries to explain away both characters' great strength and intelligence by claiming their [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wold_Newton_family ancestors were irradiated by a meteor]], and that other relatives of Tarzan and Savage whose ancestors were exposed to that radiation include [[Literature/PrideAndPrejudice Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy]], Literature/SherlockHolmes, Franchise/FuManchu, and Literature/BulldogDrummond. Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer is in a class of his own.

* FramingDevice, when the story is set within a fictional reality in which somebody is telling a story (true or otherwise). This is a particularly common confusion. ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' is not an example of Literary Agent Hypothesis because the stories are written as if they were written by an in-universe character called Watson. It's an example because some fans like to pretend that Creator/ArthurConanDoyle (the real life author) was merely Watson's agent.

* ''SchoolRumble'' often reads like a ''Film/BigFish'' version of the author's life. The manga that Harima works on are probably just jokes at the expense of stories the author has written, the unrealistic points of the normal story could simply be exaggerations. His boss was intimidating, so he was 20 feet tall... The same could be applied to other characters who were very tall or even changed size, such as Tennouji.

* In ''Blog/AskErnstStavroBlofeld'', the classic Eon-produced ''Franchise/JamesBond'' films are said to be this, and they are extremely close to the real events. The Daniel Craig reboot on the other hand is the result of the producers being forced to make stuff up now that the real James Bond has retired and that Blofeld is in jail.
