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.
  • Kouri from Brass Restoration.
  • Chigara from Sunrider is an inconsistent example. Sometimes she’ll talk normally, and at other times she’ll refer to herself in the third person. It’s more prevalent in the second game than in the first, and it seems to be a reflection of the intimacy between her and her Love Interest Kayto Shields (as she sometimes calls herself “your Chigara” when speaking to him).
