* ''WebComic/SomethingPositive'' had a character named Jesus Mickey, whose whole shtick was that he made himself look like Jesus (even with nails embedded in his hands!) in order to attract chicks. Like many gag characters from the early years, he was eventually KilledOffForReal.

* Ironically, the real Jesus most likely would ''not'' qualify for the trope. Not only did he most likely have far more [[DivineRaceLift Semitic features]] than most art would have you believe, but long hair was not common for men at his time. He probably ''did'' have a beard, but both historical texts and artwork from the time confirms that men in that time and location wore their hair and beards cut ''short'', so as to protect against lice.

* [[http://runninginheels.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/albrecht-durer-self-portrait-at-28-15002.jpg This self-portrait]] by Albrecht Dürer, about which TheOtherWiki says:
-->Dürer presents himself monumentally in a style that unmistakably recalls depictions of Christ - the implications of which have been debated among art critics. A conservative interpretation suggests that Durer is responding to the tradition of the Imitation of Christ. The more controversial view reads the painting as a proclamation of the artist's individual identity and his role as creator.

* Scion of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' looks like Jesus, aside from the fact that his skin and hair are gold rather than Caucasian and brown. [[spoiler:He deliberately chose this appearance to play on human religious tendencies and went with gold to avoid difficulties with racial divides]].
