* Seen in Creator/WilliamShakespeare's play ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'', where the self-loving and egotistical soon-to-be dictator Julius Caesar keeps on referring to himself in the third person. After assassinating Caesar, Brutus begins to do so as well on occasion, although not nearly as consistently as Caesar did. This probably derives from RealLife, as the real Caesar did this in his writing.
* More or less the central gimmick of Samuel Beckett's ''Not I,'' a monologue in which the central character desperately denies that the person whose tormented life she is describing is really herself. [[MindScrew Maybe...]]
-->"...what?...who?...no!...''she!''..."
* One Creator/WilliamShakespeare editor noted that "{{Hamlet}} frequently speaks of himself in the third person; which is characteristic of the philosophic man,--reflective, thoughtful, given to moralize and speak in the abstract."
* Not all the time, but InspectorJavert in ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' does this frequently enough to be noticed. It suits him, given that he is seen by many people in the play and audience (and to some extent, by himself,) less as a person and more as an avatar of the aloof, relentless, impartial law.
