* [[LargeHam Caster of Red]] from ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha''. Then again, he's ''Creator/WilliamShakespeare'', so this, in addition to show his penchant for grandiness, is basically how his Main/AntiquatedLinguistics translate in Japanese.

* Zarc from ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' likes to call himself with it, fitting for someone who claims to be the "ultimate being". At least, he ''is'' the Supreme King Dragon with lots of Supreme King Servant Dragons under his wing.

:''Temē'': てめえ A ''very'' insulting word for "you," almost exclusively used by rough-talking male characters. [[JapaneseStockPhrases Commonly translated]] as "you bastard." A corruption of the archaic first-person pronoun 手前 ''temae'', literally "that which is in front of you," which was very humble and self-effacing.
