* Rafale from ''Film/NoobLaQueteLegendaire'' doesn't do it all the time, but still regularly enough for another character to notice and make clear she considers it a little annoying.

* Bucky Katt from ''ComicStrip/GetFuzzy'' would occasionally refer to himself in the third person. For one thing it was because of his ego, but he also did it to tick off Rob.

The technical term for this is "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illeism illeism]]", from the Latin word for "that" (sometimes also used like "he") with "-ism" attached. If the speaker does this for only for a story in which they are revealed as the central character, it's AndThatLittleGirlWasMe or NarratorAllAlong.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
--> '''Moondancer:''' "Moondancer is greater than this Trixie!"\\
'''Trixie:''' "Is that so? Well, Trixie would like to MEET this Moondancer!"\\
'''Moondancer:''' "Well Moondancer would like to meet this Trixie!"\\
'''Linky:''' "Should we..."\\
'''Sparkler:''' "No, I want to see how long this goes on for."
