* ''Literature/AmericanPsycho''[='=]s Patrick Bateman fancies himself one-- but then he also describes Creator/WhitneyHouston as a ''jazz'' singer, [[SubvertedTrope so...]]

to:

* ''Literature/AmericanPsycho''[='=]s Deconstructed in ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'' and its adaptations. Patrick Bateman fancies tries to define himself one-- through his appreciation for music, art, and pop culture and relates this much to the reader/audience, but then his grasp and understanding of his favorite music and artists is reduced to what material they make the most appealing to the widest audiences and lowest common denominator, such as dismissing early Music/{{Genesis}} albums with Music/PeterGabriel (and his "lame solo career") as being "too artsy, too intellectual" and favoring the more commercially-driven direction of the group after Music/PhilCollins became the group's frontman. Other assessments he also describes Creator/WhitneyHouston as makes of popular singers and bands are frequently off-the-mark and factually wrong, like being convinced that Music/WhitneyHouston is a ''jazz'' singer, [[SubvertedTrope so...]]singer or believing [[Music/TheRollingStones "You Can't Always Get What You Want"]] is a song by Music/TheBeatles. In the book and musical, he often speaks of owning what's described as the original version of [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/600x315/5e/2e/c5/5e2ec5ee9ec77bb094ef1b45e762d45a.jpg "Sunrise with Broken Plates"]] by artist David Onica (while discreetly boasting of the high cost he paid to obtain it), only for his ex-girlfriend to later point out to him that he hung it upside down. All of this only serves to further demonstrate Patrick's shallowness and delusions about having "good taste."

* Similarly to ''Blazblue'', the protagonist of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', [[{{Badass}} Sol Badguy]], is stated by Daisuke Ishiwatari to be a huge Music/{{Queen}} fan. [[spoiler:Funny enough, his age of [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld around 170]] would put him as being born in the 1980's, and his real name is Frederick]].

* Gintoki from ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' probably one of the biggest in anime and manga as a whole, coming with at least 1 ShoutOut per episode in this already {{Reference Overload}}ed series, even in serious arcs. He even reads Magazine/WeeklyShonenJump, the magazine it's from, and has only mentioned a few with a {{Bland Name|Product}}, but most are directly ShoutOut, if censored are mostly just one character/letter ●-ed or [[SoundEffectBleep bleeped]] out making it quite useless. This has not gone without issues however as both Sunrise and Shueisha prays they won't get sued anymore. He's also a HiddenBadass who's a ShellShockedVeteran with a HiddenHeartOfGold who has managed to destroy a space ship with a bokuto as WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter.

* Alucard from ''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'' is quite pop-cultured, enjoying himself some ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' between missions, amongst other things. There's also his speech with Alexander Anderson:
-->'''Anderson''': You have been chosen to reveal my existence to the world! You will witness what happens here today, and you will tell of it later! ...Except you won't! 'Cause I'll have killed ya! HA HA!!\\
'''Alucard''': [[SarcasmMode Oh, my. Brilliant speech.]] ...And unoriginal. That's totally from ''[[Film/TheBoondockSaints Boondock Saints]]''.

** Teal'c, surprisingly, after he acclimates to Earth culture. Turns out he's a huge fan of ''Franchise/StarWars''. He also immediately recognizes a reference to ''Film/DieHard'' later in the show, even when none of his teammates got it.
