* Done in an unusual way in ''Mike Nelson's Death Rat!'', where antagonist Gus Bromstad is described as having "trim, Roger Whittaker-like good looks," but those familiar with Roger Whittaker know that's not really the most glamorous of descriptions. The protagonist also considers himself to look like "a sloppy caricature of Gorbachev without the wine stain," which is far less flattering.

* The novelization of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'' has Claire Redfield note that Steve Burnside greatly resembles Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio. This was meant as an affectionate StealthInsult to the franchise, as this was such a common complaint about the game that the developers actually ''changed Steve's appearance'' before re-releasing it on PS2. Of course, this was back in Leo's cutsey-boy early years, but... ouch.
