* ''Manga/AliceInSexland'' has the Queen of Hearts exclusively use it, whenever she appears. [[spoiler:She drops the Royal We and refers to herself in first person when she reveals her past.]]

* GLaDOS uses We instead of I in ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' before the big reveal. This more of the editorial sense of the word though, as she is ostensibly speaking for the scientists and other personnel running the test. [[spoiler:This is also to hide the fact the she is an AI rather than a recording. "I" would imply that the speaker is an actual entity, where We refers to those that speaker represents. In fact, once you officially go OffTheRails, she accidentally lets the "I" slip out; she tries to correct it, but then drops the facade entirely once she knows there's no going back.]]

* The BigBad of ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'' uses it in the royalty persona in the official English translation, making it a bit more eccentric than the original Japanese where the pronoun simply denoted inflated self-importance.

* In HBeamPiper's ''Space Viking'', use of the Royal "We" by a planetary king is early evidence of that character displaying a [[RoyallyScrewedUp hereditary ]] tendency to becoming TheCaligula:
-->There were other things to worry about. One was the altering attitude of his Majesty Angus I...Angus had made [an earlier audiovisual recorded message] seated at his desk, bare headed and [[EverybodySmokes smoking a cigarette]]...a year and a half later, he was speaking from his throne, wearing his crown and employing the first person plural for himself and finally the third person singular for Trask.

* Given that several of the main characters are or become royalty, this shows up occasionally in ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. It's fairly low-key and easy to miss when it does, though, and someone unfamiliar with the trope ([[ParentalBonus as many children might be expected to be]]) could easily take it as nothing more than a leader speaking for his immediate associates, and the story loses nothing with this interpretation.

* In the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, King Ancar of Hardorn used the royal plural constantly. Averted with King Tremane (formerly a Duke of the [[TheEmpire Eastern Empire]]), after being OfferedTheCrown, who chose to do away with it as one way of distancing himself from his evil predecessor.
** When Solaris and Selenay meet in ''[[HeraldsOfValdemar Storm Rising]]'', Solaris bounces back and forth between "We" and "I". Karal identifies her reasoning as 1) "I" to indicate she's not claiming any special precedence and 2) "We" because as [[SheIsTheKing High Priest]] Solaris speaks for Vkandis as well as herself.

* "Literature/{{Krakumal}}": As a king, Ragnar speaks of himself in plural. For example, the first line of every stanza: "We struck with our swords!" really means that Ragnar did so.

* Used occasionally by Emperor Gregor Vorbarra in the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' and usually when he's making a point. In ''Memory'', he says "I, or to put it more officially, ''We'' are not happy with current progress."
