* Accidentally happened in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', when Shinkawa designed Otacon to look like HideoKojima, and Kojima ran with it and based Otacon's personality off his own as well. While Otacon is one of the most heroic characters and ends up [[RelationshipSue having sex with Naomi, a character Kojima based on his ideal woman,]] the amount of [[TheWoobie abuse Kojima piled on him]] easily overwhelms all this and makes him look kind of pathetic.

* ''Literature/TheGreenwichTrilogy'': written by three different authors, and each book stars the author who wrote it, and has the others as secondary characters. The first book was nominated for a HugoAward in 1968, which definitely shows that this trope is not necessarily a bad thing.

* OlderThanPrint: In ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'', Dante ''is'' the author Dante Alighieri with some amount of WishFulfillment: he gets to see his real-life enemies burn in hell, interact with famous people he admires, reunite with his real-life lost love Beatrice who turns out to have loved him so much that she set up this whole journey to save him, and ascend all the way up to Heaven to see God up close. That said, he's not as bad as most examples of this trope because he's not talked up as a paragon or really special at all (he faints frequently in Hell) and the books are more about the places he journeys through than his heroic deeds or specialness.
