Cale is a Blood Elf, not a Night Elf
* An ''accidental'' case of this occurs in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''. Cale, full name [[AlienNames Cale'anon Vatay]], is an Elf, has a black panther named Sooba who seems to magically appear out of nowhere when called, is obviously a dual-wielding Ranger, and is Good (albeit StupidGood) while the rest of his races is (ostensibly) AlwaysChaoticEvil. Sohmer, the comic's writer, had NEVER read even one Forgotten Realms book in his life (instead basing Cale on the Hunter class and Night Elf race from WorldOfWarcraft), and wondered who the hell this "Drizz't Do'urden" guy was that everyone kept saying Cale was a brilliant parody of. Since learning about Drizz't, he's happily accepted the similarities and doesn't mind at all if people see Cale as a deconstruction or parody of Drizz't in the slightest, even actually playing it up from time to time.

The character alone isn't a meme.

Added an official ''[1]'' reference to this trope, with a link in a labelnote because the apostrophe in the link messed up the TV Tropes formatting.
