At the same time, many vain and self-centered people are very fond of using the pronoun "I"; in this context, the third person self-referral can be seen as exactly the opposite: a sign of self-irony and not taking oneself too seriously. In Eastern religions, like Hinduism or Buddhism, it may be a sign of enlightenment. Some, like Ma Yog Laxmi and Swami Ramdas, referred to themselves in this way in order to detach their true selves from temporary ones (Jnana Yoga actually encourages its practitioners to do this).

* Elmo of ''Series/SesameStreet'' does this; it's part of the reason he's so adorable. Not so much ego as [[JustifiedTrope he hasn't learned pronouns yet]].

* Elmo of ''Series/SesameStreet'' does this; it's part of the reason he's so adorable. Not so much ego as [[JustifiedTrope he hasn't learned pronouns yet]]. As such, he will also sometimes refer to someone he's talking to directly in the third person, for example, "Elmo thinks Abby could ask Julia to play again" instead of "I think you could ask Julia to play again."

* In the fan comic ''Friendship is Tragic'' (not to be confused with Fanfic/FriendshipIsTragic the fanfic of the same name), the background unicorn usually known as Twinkleshine ''is'' actually Moondancer and refers to herself in third person. The result of this is that, except for her so-called friends, nopony knows that she is Moondancer, Equestria's most famous blogger, because everypony thinks that she just talks about Moondancer all the time, and that her actual name is Twinkle. HilarityEnsues in the one-part comic in which Moondancer and The Great and Powerful Trixie meet without really knowing.

* Tsukey from ''Fanfic/{{Hivefled}}. She's not childish or arrogant, just a little odd. Parts of her design were inspired by Music/EmilieAutumn, and the song "Opheliac" includes the line "she speaks in third person [[TheWoobie so she can forget that she's me]]".
