* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', BigBad Dio Brando always refers to himself as "kono Dio", roughly meaning "this Dio". Since that sounds rather silly in English, almost all translations of this expression render it as "I, Dio" instead (e.g. "This is the first time that I, Dio, have felt fear").

* Dio Brando in the English dub of the ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' OVA would constantly refer to himself in the first person, then the third person, just to cover his bases ("This is the first time that I, Dio, have felt fear").

** [[SelfDemonstratingArticle I, Dukemon, spoke in a construct based around this,]] but only in the original Japanese. It carries over from his base form; Guilmon did use some pronouns like ''boku'' from time to time, but most of the time he spoke in a standard third person way. This also applied when he evolves to Growmon. Of course, it's a bit different with his Ultimate form: Guilmon is a rather childlike character, and Dukemon is a royal knight, so it's going from "Me Guilmon not know pronouns!" to "I, Dukemon, shall smite thee!" This also reinforces that Dukemon has shades of its own personality, supported by having a very different-sounding[[note]][[Creator/MasakoNozawa except not actually any different]][[/note]] voice to Guilmon. It should be noted that while most subtitles render his pronouns as "I, Dukemon", it carries a slightly different connotation to his actual pronoun in Japanese speech, "''kono Dukemon''"[[note]]this Dukemon[[/note]], showing his specific reference in the third person is more of a humble servant, befitting his standing as a knight, especially in later media where Dukemon actually served a master, rather than the grandiose and self-important sounding "I, Dukemon".

* Another Ayumi does this too: the one from ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. In her case, it's justified because Ayumi Yoshida is just six/seven years old.

* Zeno from ''Manga/YonaoftheDawn'' talks like this. [[spoiler: It's later revealed to have tragic origins: his wife suggested it to remind himself of his own name, since, living forever and mostly alone with no one to talk to him, he is in danger of forgetting it.]]

* Aoko Nakamori from ''Manga/MagicKaito'' sometimes does this, despite being already sixteen/seventeen. It's implied that this comes from her rather low self-esteem.
