* All the characters in ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' are based on Danny Antonucci himself, his family, and people he knew growing up. The Eds were all aspects of his personality, Jimmy was based of a cousin, Jonny was based on a loner friend who spent time with a blanket, and Rolf was based on his experiences as an immigrant (He ''probably'' didn't know anyone exactly like the Kankers or Eddy's Brother).

* In Creator/HughLaurie's ''Literature/TheGunSeller'', the protagonist can [[FakeAmerican fake a convincing American accent]] while his old friend has so many mannerisms in common with Laurie's old friend StephenFry to remove all doubt that this trope was in effect.

* In ''ShadeTheChangingMan'', this is how Miles Laimling wrote, taking character descriptions and sometimes full quotes from people he met in person. An unexpected consequence of living near a WeirdnessMagnet inside a Weirdness Nexus was that he actually ''took'' their personality traits away as he wrote about them, until the original person was left empty and depressed to the point of suicide.
