* Most of the [[PettingZooPeople Khajiit]] of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' universe 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.

* Fitting in with the rest of the concentrated wackiness that is ''MetalWolfChaos'', main antagonist Vice President Richard Hawk cannot stop referring to himself, Richard Hawk, in the third person.

** 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]]."

* Kyon of ''[[EndlessFrontier Super Robot Taisen OG Saga Endless Frontier]]'' uses the "cutesy anime girl" version in her first appearance. She doesn't seem to realize that she does this, however, since she freaks out when one of the protagonists calls her by name immediately after she tells them that [[IllNeverTellYouWhatImTellingYou "Kyon can't tell you her name right now"]]. She seems to drop the trait in later appearances, however, since [[RuleOfFunny there are no more jokes to be made of it]].
