** The franchise has also made a pair of [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructions]] on both this premise and the [[RelationshipSue two]] [[GodModeSue tropes]] most commonly used with them. [[spoiler: Their names are [[KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories Naminé]] and [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2 Xion]].]]

** One that plays it straight is ''Fanfic/ThisBites'', where after musing aloud on how cool it would be, a fan fic writer has his wish granted by a (bastard) random omnipotent being. The inserted character earns a place with the Straw Hats thanks to his dreams and a partnership with a Transponder Snail that ate a Devil Fruit. And when you consider that the typical baseline of durability in that world is being MadeOfIron, an average fan fic writer PROBABLY wouldn't have weapons training, and the fact that adding someone who would attempt to change things for the better would make the ButterflyOfDoom quite active...the author's writing is quite realistic.

That's a standard alternate spelling.
* Well known among MarySue [[{{Hatedom}} sporking]] communities is the infamous and ([[SoBadItsGood sadly]]) unfinished [[http://nanowrimo.org/ NaNoWriMo]] entry ''Literature/BeansidhesWail''. What's interesting about it is it's not a simple case of WishFulfillment. The author is an Otherkin and shares almost all of her "life story" with the ([[CreatorsPet incredibly unlikable]]) main character, Wynne. (Including the bit about [[strike:Catherine]] ''[[MyNaymeIs Kathryn]]'' Howard.)

canon, moving out of fan work
* Parodied extensively in the British comedy show ''GarthMarenghisDarkplace''. The show is based on the premise that Garth Marenghi wrote and starred in a 80s low-budget hospital-based horror show. Many jokes are based on the idea that Garth Marenghi not only wrote the series, but also plays the central role in the show. As such, his own character -- Doctor Rick Dagless, M.D. -- exhibits outrageously unrealistic traits. * Spoofed in [[http://web.archive.org/web/20030711193142/members.aol.com/tjats/204.html this episode of Science Fiction Theater 1,000,000,000]] (a fan fiction series based on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'') where the AuthorAvatar tries to play the role straight, but after probing by Crow and Servo, he then turns into a typical MartyStu, even changing the series into Freedom Fighter Theater 3000 for a time. -->'''MAGIC VOICE:''' Warning!

* ''Fanfic/{{Chlorine Grown Roses}}'''s protagonist, Azusa Tachibana, is an arguable example, but her friend Akira Tomuson (a character made up by the author's editor and friend) is so similar to her creator that they share basically the same name.
