Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'' plays this trope for laughs. Nozaki blatantly bases his manga's characters and relationships on the people around him, and often undertakes hilarious situations in the interest of "research," with the characters themselves being none the wiser.

* The {{documentary}} Film/{{Marwencol}} is all about this trope. After suffering memory loss after an attack, Mark Hogancamp starts building a 1/6-scale WorldWarII-era town in his yard and populating it with dolls representing [[AuthorAvatar himself]], [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed his friends]], and even his attackers. He rehabilitates his physical wounds by manipulating the small dolls and props and his mental ones by having the figures act out various battles and stories. When Mark begins documenting his miniature dramas with his camera, his photos are discovered and published by Esopus magazine and even shown in a New York art gallery.

* Gil, the [[MostWritersAreWriters writer protagonist]] of ''Film/MidnightInParis'', unconsciously wrote himself and people he knows into his novel. The effect is an inversion of the norm: his [[ErnestHemingway beta-reader]] thinks it's unrealistic that the protagonist doesn't realise his fiance is having an affair with the [[KnowNothingKnowItAll pedantic pseudo-intellectual professor]].
