* Rohan Kishibe of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' fame (Based off of author Hirohiko Araki) is a manga-ka that embraces this philosophy as part of his author abilities, believing that "researching reality" helps improve his stories greatly. Unfortunately he tends to take this to freakish extremes such as torturing and killing a spider to see how it reacts to pain, ''then licking it's corpse just to see how it tastes''. His Stand, Heaven's Door, can read minds as well, so he uses it to [[WriteWhoYouKnow get more inspiration for his manga as well.]] Whether or not the participant is willing.

* Jaroslav Hašek served as a conscript [[UsefulNotes/TheSoundOfMartialMusic Austro-Hungarian soldier]] in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, and his [[OneBookAuthor sole]] [[AuthorExistenceFailure unfinished]] novel, ''Literature/TheGoodSoldierSvejk'', naturally features the titular Czech soldier during the WWI, complete with an AuthorAvatar in Volunteer Marek.
** Hašek actually wrote much more than ''Švejk'', but as he was primarily a journalist before the war, most of his literary output outside of the novel consists of short stories and newspaper articles — also mainly about the things he knew or did.
