** Most [[CatFolk Khajiit]] speak this way, particularly so in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''. This goes both ways, with them forgoing "I" or "me" in place of their name, "Khajiit" or "this one"; and replacing "you" with your character's name, class or race. One can readily determine whether a Khajiit in question is a relative foreigner to human lands or has lived in them for a long time by studying their speech patterns. The ones who refer to themselves in the third person frequently are foreigner, while those who use first person are more acclimatized.

** And there's also of course the girl in the sidequest "I Remember Me". Though that's more because she is insanely [[TheWoobie messed up psychologically and has nothing to do with egotism.]] You're actually speaking to a SplitPersonality she constructed to cope with the horrors she experienced as a slave; she's effectively trying to convince herself that the trauma happened to someone else.

** And there's also of course the suicidal girl in the sidequest "I Remember Me". Though that's more because she is insanely [[TheWoobie messed up psychologically and has nothing to do with egotism.]] You're actually speaking to a SplitPersonality she constructed to cope with the horrors she experienced as a slave; she's effectively trying to convince herself that the trauma happened to someone else. The quest title comes from the good outcome, where you convince her to take a sedative and get psychiatric help, upon which she switches to first-person: "It hurts when she... when [[TitleDrop I remember me]]."
