* Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, MutekiKanbanMusume: Deconstructs this trope with Akihiko, who despite being abused at his childhood , has become an adult NiceGuy who is everyoneís ButtMonkey. Akihiko deeply desires to be the like the Red Ranger (from the {{Sentai}} ShowWithinAShow Star Rangers) because he is always recognized for his efforts with a HundredPercentHeroismRating. Akihiko is so found of the Red Ranger that he copies his CatchPhrase ''Iíll pay them back several times over'' and uses it in situations that doesnít even make sense:

* Jenny in ''Comicbook/ThePunisherMAX'' comes across as this. After seeing Frank shot by the women she is targeting she saves him and takes him to her apartment. The scenes between them invoke ''{{Literature/Misery}}'', and Frank feels a little like her prisoner, but Jenny does nothing to stop him and the reason he can't leave is his gunshot injuries, and he patiently listens as she describes what was done to her, and sympathy for what was done to him. Jenny then has two requests: his shirt and jacket so she can become The Punisher and kill the women who hurt her, and that he stay until she finishes it. Frank feels more and more like he's trapped, and that Jenny would stop him even if he could leave, before passing out and ending up handcuffed so Jenny can show him how to torture criminals.
* In ''Comicbook/GreenLanternCorps'', Iolande's brother Ragnar was so obsessed with the Corps he murdered every potential Lantern candidate in their sector so he would end up the best candidate for the position, including his brother Stentar and Soranik Natu's partner Myrrt. When Ragnar was finally exposed, captured, and set for execution, Soranik purposefully chose to reveal that Iolande would be the new Green Lantern of Sector 1417 right before Ragnar would be beheaded. To add to this KickTheSonOfABitch moment, Ragnar made an empty admission of guilt and repentance to show he "wasn't afraid" before his execution, thinking he ''still'' had a chance to be a Lantern. The look on his face when Soranik takes out the ring, then gives it to his sister, is satisfying.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', the villain Syndrome was once a young Loony Fan who wanted to be Mr. Incredible's sidekick, and his rejection was one of the factors that led him to become a villain, not an AscendedFanboy, as he so desperately wanted, but a GenreSavvy bad guy.
* Arguably the basis of the 1998 anime film ''Anime/PerfectBlue'' (unarguably, a LoonyFan does at least ''appear'' in the anime).
