* TheHulk often refers to himself in the third person. DependingOnTheWriter, this is either simply primitive HulkSpeak, the Hulk being arrogant ("Hulk is strongest one there is!") or a mixture of the two.

Although, this was lampshaded in the four-part story "Countdown" (when he was the Grey Hulk) and he was fighting the Leader's henchmen, one of whom talked like this. "How come these bozos always talk in third person?" he mused.

* The ComicBook/FantasticFour's nemesis Doctor Doom cares not the first person! Of course, if you were named [[SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom Victor Von Doom]], you'd probably refer to yourself as "[[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Doom]]" a lot too.

* The Spike, member of the second [[XForce X-Force]] (before it was renamed X-Statix), often referred to himself as such. This is possibly an attempt to clarify that he bears no relation to team director Spike Freeman. Mr. Freeman's Spike; the Spike is ''[[SpellMyNameWithAThe the]]'' Spike, thank you.

* The characters talk like this in the Malibu ''MortalKombat'' comics. You begin to wonder if Outworld lacks first person at all.

* Vault, a minor villain from ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' and its sister books ''TheAstoundingWolfMan'' and ''Capes''. Vault is a comically self-sure villain and an inveterate braggart, so it fits him ''very'' well. "Vault is prepared -- ''unstoppable''!"

* Caliban of ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' does this, at least in the early Morlock stories. Another Morlock, a one-shot named [=MeMe=] (whose name should be "good luck ever sleeping again") does this, too (with a VerbalTic that has him repeating ''other'' words as well, so his name may actually be "Me").

* In the Salvation arc of ''{{Preacher}}'' [[IOwnThisTown local villain]] Odin Quinncannon constantly refers to himself in the third person. Unfortunately for him, Jesse Custer hates people who do that and proves it by throwing Quincannon through the nearest window.
