* Facebook's ''7teen Fanfiction Series'' did this with the Dunphy clan of ''Series/ModernFamily'', creating an Expy for each Dunphy family member and giving them similar first names (exceptions being Terry and Susan to Phil and Claire, respectively). Each story arc that features them has [[BewareTheNiceOnes Michael]], Jonesy's Dad, give Susan a ReasonYouSuckSpeech on why she is a terrible person and why Terry deserves better. Why? Because [[WordOfGod The Author of 7teen]] despises Claire Dunphy's character and includes legitimate gripes that he (and other people who hate Claire) have with her character in Michael's speechea. However, he has also openly stated that Phil is his favorite character because of his goofy, laid back, genuine NiceGuy demeanor and always felt as though he was often mistreated by her.

** A rather haunting episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent'' revealed that Mike Logan, Briscoe's first onscreen partner, imagined that he could still see Lenny. It wouldn't be surprising if there were a lot of Chris Noth's emotions in there.

* In ''ComicBook/SecretEmpire'' #7, Carol Danvers is lamenting to the comatose body of the female Quasar that she's the reason for Steve Rogers and HYDRA taking over the United States and Earth's most powerful heroes are stuck behind an impenetrable shield. That she started off [[ComicBook/CivilWarII the second superhuman civil war]] that divided the superhero community again because she was too stubborn to back down, that she wanted people to love her and instead gave them reason to ''hate'' her. This is seen as reflecting on the CharacterDerailment done to Carol due to the story.

* The story in ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'' was based closely on the experiences of the writer, Nosaka Akiyuki, in WorldWarII. In RealLife, Nosaka [[spoiler:watched his little sister die of starvation]] the same way the main character of the movie did. That the said main character [[spoiler:[[TakeThatMe later starves to death on the floor of JNR Sannomiya Station]] in [[HowWeGotHere the opening of the film]]]] should tell you a bit about how he still feels about that.

* The famous Marseillaise scene in ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' features a close up of a woman crying while singing. The film was produced during WorldWarII. Many of the actors, including that woman, were forced to flee Europe due to the German invasion. The emotion in that scene was not faked.

* May or may not have been intentional, but the wrong anthem incident in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E24EquestriaGames Equestria Games]]'' had a real life precedent in 2012, when the parody Kazakhstan anthem from ''Film/{{Borat}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2WH9HVJRFk was played at the Kuwait International Shooting Grand Prix]]'' when Kazakh Maria Dmitrienko won.

* Tragically, the pained [[BreakupSong breakup songs]] written by Creator/{{Motown}} staff writer Rodger Penzabene, including TheTemptations' hits "I Wish It Would Rain", "You're My Everything" and "I Could Never Love Another (After Loving You)" and the Music/GladysKnight[=/=]Music/MarvinGaye duet "The End Of Our Road" were inspired by the the songwriter's RealLife heartbreak over his wife's [[YourCheatingHeart adultery]], and the couple's subsequent divorce. According to TheOtherWiki, Penzabene would [[DrivenToSuicide commit suicide]] on New Year's Eve 1967, one week after "I Wish It Would Rain"'s release.

* At some point during or before production of ''Film/{{Bobby}}'', Creator/LindsayLohan received word that one of her closest friends had passed away. Lohan used up her grief over that event to fuel her during the more emotional scenes in the film.
