Third Person Person: Visual Novels
  • Angie in Shikkoku No Sharnoth, which is kind of odd considering it takes place in Victorian Britain. Ah well.
  • Rizu in A Profile. At one point Masayuki is worried for her when she uses the more standard "atashi" to refer to herself.
  • Katawa Shoujo's Misha plays with this trope a lot. She sometimes uses what sounds like third person speech, but it's because she's voicing Shizune's signs. She also inverts the trope by speaking in first person for a third person. Lastly, she's not above lampshading it either, which is justified when it's to make clear who's actually speaking.
  • Remi from My Girlfriend Is the President.
  • Da Capo's Miharu refers to herself in third person.
  • Oko San, from Hatoful Boyfriend, only ever refers to himself as "Okosan". Since he only speaks in subtitled cooing, there's a difference in how the heroine translates for him (pretentious and Hot-Blooded, using the "grandiose" third-person) and how the other birds translate for him (birdbrained and childish, using the "immature" third-person).
  • Ibuki Mioda in Super Dangan Ronpa 2, though this is toned down in the official English localization where she only does this occasionally.
  • Sayuri, in Kanon. Her crushing guilt over her well-meant but harsh treatment of her younger brother and his early death in her Back Story led her to switch to third-person to distance herself from herself.
  • Fuko of CLANNAD, a small, childish character. She continues to speak this way even when she's an adult, though this because she was in a coma for several years. Her sister Kouko points out that people would take her more seriously if she spoke in first person instead, and Fuuko tries it...but immediately gives up.
  • Rena Ryuguu in Higurashi: When They Cry. In her case, it's both cutesy and sinister.
  • Maria from Umineko: When They Cry. Granted, she is nine years old, but even other characters consider this overly childish.
