* ''{{ComicBook/X-Men}}'' has ComicBook/{{Jubilee}}, who expected her experience to give her more clout when she was transferred to ComicBook/GenerationX. It didn't take long for her new companions to grow tired of it and refuse to hear anything starting with the words "When I was with the X-Men..."

* The old man in ''The Time of Your Life'' identified in the DramatisPersonae as "Kit Carson" (which may or may not be his name). Among his many stories is one about herding cattle on a bicycle in Toledo, Ohio in the year 1918, when a hurricane struck the town and left him floating northwest sitting on the roof of a house. [[spoiler: The play ends with him telling the story of having killed a man in San Francisco, 1938, because he didn't like the way he talked to ladies. Since that's the present day and a vice cop was just murdered outside after harassing a woman in the bar, the characters believe this one.]]

* ''Literature/TalesFromTheWhiteHart'' is a 1950s-era collection of short stories by ArthurCClarke. They are all set in a London pub called "The White Hart", known as a [[GoodGuyBar hangout for scientists]]. The Munchhausen in question is Harry Purvis, an (allegedly) important scientist that has (allegedy) traveled the world, hearing of (or participating in!) [[FantasticScience various scientific exploits and amazing inventions]]. Almost all of them have an ironic end, usually involving the destruction of the device and its creator, which conveniently eliminates any way [[PullTheThread to prove or disprove his stories.]]

* Gobbler has this role in the ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' short ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTheBoneknapperDragon'', his narration of all sorts of crazy adventures is also presented in traditional animation giving it a more cartoony style.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has Tormund Gianstbane, whose many (likely self-applied) nicknames include "the Tall-Talker." He's a BoisterousBruiser who delights in telling tall tales about his exploits and [[BiggusDickus physical characteristics]]. In reality, he's still a respected warrior and leader.
