** When Faith switches bodies with Buffy, she becomes so enamored with Buffy's heroic lifestyle (with true friends looking up to her that she tries to actually act the part), that when she has the chance to skip town free and clear she instead comes back to save a innocent hostages from a group of vampires, [[IronicEcho "because it's wrong"]]. When Buffy-in-Faith's-body shows up to confront her, all Faith's own self-loathing comes pouring out in their fight; she beats the crap out of her former body while screaming that she's nothing but dirt, trash, and evil. Buffy is able to switch their body's back, but is so shaken by what she just witnessed that she doesn't pursue Faith when she immediately flees.

* Gary Gulman has a routine where he talks about roleplaying a teacher-student scenario with his girlfriend as foreplay.

* Deconstructed and parodied in ''Film/TropicThunder'' by Robert Downey, Jr.'s character. And yes, that quote at the top of the page is serious too, because Robert Downey Jr. stays in character for the ''actual'' film's DVD commentary. ** More specifically, he stays in character as Kirk Lazarus ''as Sergeant Lincoln Osiris'' until that very line of the movie. When Ben Stiller calls him on it, he finally breaks character... down to Kirk Lazarus, acclaimed Aussie actor. It's only when Lazarus has his own "Who am I?" moment in the film that Robert Downey Jr. emerges.

* GalaxyQuest: Due to the premise, this is a recurring joke for the whole cast. Just about everyone has a moment where they forget their real selves, Guy especially (who only had a one-time bit part on the show). Hell, by the end, even Alexander is in on it, and he always ''[[IAmNotSpock hated]]'' his role!

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/PeterPanAndThePirates'' when Peter obtains Hook's hat he starts acting like a pirate captain himself. He gets so caught up playing the role though that he winds up literally believing himself to be a real pirate, to the point of even talking in Hook's voice. This ends up with the real Hook joining forces with him and Peter trying to feed Wendy to the crocodile!
