* Bigweld from ''WesternAnimation/{{Robots}}'', according to the filmmakers. Even though he's in a completely different industry -- his company sells robotic gadgets as well as spare parts for the robotic inhabitants of his world -- he has the friendly demeanor, the big-dreamer mentality, and his own TV show. By the time the protagonist arrives at Bigweld HQ, where he'd dreamed of working someday, the company has been taken over by a sleazy executive who's only interested in making money and has no interest in offering jobs to small-timers like him. (As this was an animated film made by [[Creator/BlueSky a studio that is not Disney]], it's probably a bit autobiographical as well.)

* Joey Drew from ''VideoGame/BendyAndTheInkMachine'' appears to be at least ''partly'' based on Walt Disney. His most famous character appears to be the titular Bendy (a demon reminiscent of Mickey Mouse) and he also has his own animation studio. [[spoiler: This being a horror game, however, he also appears to be a Satanist, and his constant insistence on catering to the eponymous machine seems to have driven some of his employees to literal insanity. It's also implied he used black magic to bring his characters to the real world, with ''[[GoneHorriblyWrong disastrous]]'' results! In short, Joey seems to be a dark, more twisted take on Disney.]]

* Mr. House in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is this mixed with a Howard Hughes-type paranoiac. His goal is to run New Vegas as TheThemeParkVersion: safe, clean, secure, and under his totalitarian control, aided by an army of robots. His portrait bears more than a little resemblance to Disney, [[spoiler: and his actual body is effectively somewhere between HumanPopsicle and BrainInAJar.]]

* Andrew Ryan from ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' is basically a Libertarian Walt Disney bent on building a utopia. He also has a mustache that is similar to Disney's. Like House he is also based on Howard Hughes.

* Howard Stark in ''Film/IronMan2'' is very much based on the futurist side of Walt, though it's shown in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' that in his earlier days he was more of a pre-breakdown Creator/HowardHughes type.

A NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of Creator/WaltDisney; expect him to be the animator of a world-famous cartoon character and/or the founder of SouvenirLand. Also expect an exaggerated interest in planned communities and/or creating a utopia, possibly with sinister undertones. Oh, and HumanPopsicle or BrainInAJar jokes, many of them. Many of these characters go beyond parodying ''just'' Disney and fuse him with Creator/HowardHughes, another mustachio'd early/Golden Age of Hollywood impresario and futurist. Hughes gradually became debilitated by severe mental illness (OCD and agoraphobia) and eventually was reduced to living in seclusion, obsessively carrying out odd habits such as urinating in jars, wearing tissue boxes on his feet, and refusing to cut his nails. While Disney endured a fairly normal, if still ultimately fatal, bout with cancer, Hughes' eccentricities dovetail well enough with the prevailing UrbanLegend about Disney going into hiding in order to cheat death that perhaps it's not surprising that many writers can't resist the conflation when writing this type of character.
