* The ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' has a variant. According to WordOfGod, [[GeneralRipper General-Admiral Makarov]] -- the BigBad of Shining Armor's side story -- is a parody of the VillainSue. It kind of shows in his full name (Supreme Marshal of the Imperial Armed Forces, General-Admiral Solomon Azure Raven Makarov) and some of [[CharmPerson his]] [[TheFightingNarcissist traits]], as well as his tendency to claim his back up plans were his plan on all along so he can act like he didn't really lose at all. [[spoiler:He turns out to be an [[HumanoidAbomination Equineoid Abomination]] called the Shadow of Chernobull, which was created by Pandora (the Draconequi of Imagination) [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away in her Box]] until a Hooviet experiment set it loose.]]

The reason she imprisoned it in the first place because it turned into a BlackHoleSue and attempted to become the hero of ''every'' story in existence.]]

* Jerzy Kosinski's ''BeingThere'' has most everyone becoming fascinated by and even in awe of Chauncey Gardiner, a brilliant-yet-humble socio-political thinker who brings hope and clarity to a complex world with his simple sayings, looks described as a cross between Cary Grant and Ted Kennedy's, and elegant manners. No one can dig up a single bad thing about his past; he's a man with nothing to hide...of course, the audience knows that his real name is [[SeeminglyProfoundFool Chance the Gardener]], who is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, mentally challenged, was isolated from the world until middle-age, picked up what little he knew of it from TV, and happens to look like someone intelligent because of his nice clothes and manners. The poor guy is passive by nature and while he's a good person at heart, the things the other characters love about him are all based on their preconceptions and misinterpretations of what he says and does, which he is virtually incapable of correcting due to his mental shortcomings.

** Kaldor Draigo is a desconstruction of this trope. His canon incarnation has been criticized for many impossible feats such as surviving inside the Warp indefinitely and score countless victories against the Daemons (some of which include ''[[DemonOfHumanOrigin Daemon Primarchs]]''). However, being trapped in the Warp for so long made Draigo turn completely [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} cuckoo]]. His combat prowess is just as ridiculous though, as he beats up a furious Daemon Primarch in a matter of ''milliseconds'' before anyone can still notice.

They two actually converge, in an odd manner: The Warp allows for ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve, and since Draigo is too fucking crazy to ever doubt his own prowess, and also believes he's as skilled as in canon, it becomes true.

Nobody likes her. ''Especially'' not Rarity.

**
[[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-10101-j SCP-10101-J]] is of the "blatant author-insert that's better than everyone" variety handled in an over-the-top manner. He's ''ridiculously'' overpowered, his containment procedure amounts to "give him everything he wants," and he helps capture or redeem "evil" [=SCPs=] while refusing the help the Foundation with "good" [=SCPs=] (in a series that normally falls closer along the lines of BlackAndGrayMorality with some tragic characters). At some points, the article even goes in to first-person to highlight his self-insert nature.

His abilities are not as over-the-top as 10101-J's, but he's still immune to all damage, cannot be contained by the Foundation, able to take down several powerful [=SCPs=], (including SCP-343, a RealityWarper that may or may not be ''{{God}}'', by saying that he doesn't believe in him) and he turns everything around him in to some incomprehensible fan fiction-like story.

Added DiffLines:

* The various incarnations of Flasheart in ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' are essentially over-the-top parodies of a heroic arcetype from the time they are in, and are each incredibly handsome, skilled, charismatic and beloved by everyone except Blackadder himself.

* An example that defies classification: There was a German radio drama series with fanfictions parodying fairy tales. One was about the sufferings of an [[Creator/HansChristianAndersen ugly punkling]] ("punk" as in the music/life style). It ended with Kim Wilde crashing the scene, blinding the punkettes with her beauty and dragging him off to pop music ever after.
