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

* Mantis of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' and the ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' always referred to herself as "this one."

* Mantis of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' and the ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' always referred to herself as "this one.""; this probably has to do with her upbringing by the Priests of Pama, an Oriental pacifistic sect of alien origin whose teachings bear a considerable similarity to real-life Eastern philosophy (which has referring to oneself in the third person as a common practice of "distancing oneself from the ego").

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

* 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 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.
