* ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry'' has an interesting example. Funky Kong writes a movie script that is clearly based off the lives of the characters. However when Bluster Kong becomes director, he casts [[BigBad King K. Rool]] as the hero and [[TheHero Donkey Kong]] as the villain. Though it's more in what Bluster thinks a hero and villain should be as K. Rool is AffablyEvil and so fits the standard hero archetype more than Donkey Kong. Whom Bluster has a very low opinion of.

* Several of Creator/NeilGaiman's stories, including ''Mr. Punch'' and "Queen of Knives", are inspired by events from his childhood and include characters based on members of his family. In "The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch", which recounts a strange occurrence that befell a group of friends during a night on the town, the three friends who aren't Miss Finch (who is ''probably'' fictional) are clearly Neil himself, TV personality Creator/JonathanRoss, and screenwriter Jane Goldman. The Beech Tree in ''Literature/{{Stardust}}'' was based on Music/ToriAmos (who then played the part in TheBBC's AudioAdaptation).

* The authors of ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', Creator/KAApplegate and Creator/MichaelGrant based most of the characters on people they knew. Applegate has said that the character Loren is based on herself. Grant is described as a lot like Marco but it's unknown if this was intentional (probably more of an author projection thing seeing as Marco's got an {{Expy}} in Grant's series).
** Applegate also said Cassie was most like her, while Marco was most like Michael Grant.

* In ''Series/{{Friends}}'' episode "The One With The Inapporopriate Sister", the B-plot is that Ross is encouraging Joey to write his own play, and this has created friction between Ross and Chandler. So Joey writes a scene where the main characters are clearly Ross and Chandler discussing their differences and making up. And then makes them act it out.
