* Creator/SarahPinsker's award-nominated novella, ''[[https://uncannymagazine.com/article/and-then-there-were-n-one/ And Then There Were (N-One)]]'', carries this to the extreme - every character is an AlternateSelf version of the author from a different timeline.

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2786 SCP-2786]], "The Archetype", is an entity that goes through copies of fiction (ex. Film/TheShining, Literature/HouseOfLeaves, VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent) to resolve the conflicts sooner than originally. As far as he knows, he's just a dimension-hopping hero... [[spoiler: until, by being in the SCP Foundation Mythos, he realizes his existence is fictional as he is trapped in his own article.]]

* There's quite a few floating around revolving around OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent getting sucked into the universe of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', but one of the most prolific is ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9983180/1/RWBY-Reckoning RWBY: Reckoning,]]'' which has been regarded as well-constructed by reviewers.

* ''Fanfic/AsDreamsAreMadeOn'' is this trope as applied to ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', the protagonist and narrator being a barely-fictionalized version of the author thrust into the life of Bella Swan.

* In-universe example: The fifth arc of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' is largely a Self-Insert Fic written by the main villain, whose AuthorAvatar hijacks the story from the usual protagonists and proceeds to wreak havoc on the plot and characters.

* ''Fanfic/ShinobiTheRPG'' is yet ''another'' ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fic. In this case, the protagonist ''is'' kind of hilariously overpowered, experiencing the world through ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' game mechanics, getting elements as perks, and having early on maxed out Intelligence and chakra control, can pull new jutsu out his butt and gain exp for it. [[{{Deconstruction}} On the other hand]], he suffers ''immensely'' from his choice to go in with minimal charisma, ordinary training doesn't help him in any way, only quests, killing and inventing jutsu will do the job, so his peers view him as a DeathSeeker; and other people ''react'' to him like a terrifying combat monster with no human empathy.

* The amount of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' fanfics staring teenagers with a horrible life being turned into dragons is disturbingly high.

Added DiffLines:

* A frequently seen plot device in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' fanfics is known as MGIT, which stands for "Modern Girl in Thedas." The basic premise is that someone from our real modern world - ''usually'', though not always, an {{expy}} of the author - is somehow transplanted to the setting of one of the games (frequently ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''), where she uses her meta knowledge of how the game world works to survive until she either finds a way home or gets romantically involved with the author's preferred LoveInterest and ends up staying. These are often actually well-written stories.
