* ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' is a game where you as an [[NonEntityGeneral Admiral]] gather and organize "fleet girls" (''kanmusu''), warships that take form of girls, in a war against horrors of the sea, called the "Abyssal Fleet". Specifically, the fleet girls personify ships that took part in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and bring with them the characteristics and history of each ship in question. At first the ships are taken from the Imperial Japanese Navy, but later updates give us ships from Germany and Italy, and even later ones give us ships from the Allies' side as well.

* Most of the transdimensional aliens from ''WebComic/AwfulHospital'' are "conceptoids," who are an embodiment of, well, a concept. Chip, for example, is a SoulSuckingRetailJob represented by a nervous young man wearing a Starbucks uniform, with a cup of coffee [[SurrealSymbolicHeads for a head]]. Another, Maggie, is quite literally ''infestation itself'', which manifests as a CuteWitch and a vast, sentient maggot colony at different points in the story.

* ''WebOriginal/{{Fandomstuck}}'' takes this to a new level: it's a largely tumblr-driven SharedUniverse that revolves around the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification personifications]] of various fandoms that have sprung up around popular tv shows, books, animes, and webcomics -- including but not limited to Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}, Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia, Series/{{Supernatural}}, Series/{{Sherlock}}, Series/DoctorWho, Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica, etc...

Added DiffLines:

* Before Earth-chan came to fruition, there was a huge fandom around "[=JupitEarth=]", also known as the Milky Way Fandom, which also personified planets. In September 2012, Jupiter blocked an asteroid collision from Earth; Tumblr users humorously started shipping the two, and then it quickly spiraled into a full-on ''fanfiction'' about [[https://bloggish.tumblr.com/post/31427372462/enchantedtulip-sir-pimp-master-arthur personified characters of Jupiter and Earth]] in a relationship. It wasn't long before other fanartists started making ships and characters dedicated to other celestial objects (Earth x Mars, or [[PortmanteauCoupleName Marth]], not to be confused with the Franchise/FireEmblem character, also gained some traction thanks to the fandom popping up a month after the Curiosity rover's landing), and the fandom got so big so fast it even inspired [[https://www.dailydot.com/culture/earth-jupiter-slash-ship-pairing-relationship/ an article from the Daily Dot]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Stellarscape}}'': The cast prominently features anthropomorphized versions of stars, with the protagonist being the brightest star in the Orion constellation, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rigel Rigel]]. The CharacterBlog also confirms that side characters included anthropomorphized planets, but they never featured in the comic.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''What A Cartoon!''-era ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode "Dimwit Dexter" uses this inside his brain.
* The ''WesternAnimation/FantasticMax'' episode "Journey to the Center of My Sister" has this in Zoe's body, with a clean-up crew in her stomach and a nightclub in her heart.


* Most of the transdimensional aliens from ''WebComic/AwfulHospital'' are "conceptoids," who are an embodiment of, well, a concept. Chip, for example, is a SoulSuckingRetailJob represented by a nervous young man wearing a Starbucks uniform, with a cup of coffee [[SurrealSymbolicHeads for a head]]. Another, Maggie, is more or less a goddess of maggots, who manifests as a CuteWitch and a WormThatWalks at different points in the story

* ''VideoGame/FoodFantasy'' is a mobile game in which you summon Food Souls- personified food- to battle Fallen Angels and manage restaurants. The Food Souls are said to be spirits that inhabited the food, and have ver human-like appearances. Foods from around the world are personified.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MyMoon'' centers around personifications of the Earth, Sun and Moon, and depicts daytime and nighttime on Earth as a LoveTriangle between the characters.


* ''VideoGame/DiscoElysium'' does this with the PlayerCharacter's skills. As skill points are invested into the skills, they start manifesting as voices inside his head and essentially becomes party members in their own right, chiming in with advice, their own opinions, conflicting desires, and even personal sidequests as you encounter different situations. You banter back and forth with them throughout the game, even stopping in mid-conversation with other people to hear them out or argue with them. Interestingly, skills can also become too strong if too many points are invested in them. What begins as advice can eventually become a compulsion, restricting what dialogue options you can choose in certain circumstances or just becoming overbearingly loud compared to the other skills.

* The ''[[http://www.helloruby.com/ Hello Ruby]]'' series by Linda Luikas, meant to introduce young children to [[UsefulNotes/ProgrammingLanguage programming]] and computer science, features many real-world programming languages and software as typical storybook characters. There's the eponymous Ruby, Robots (Android), Penguin (Lunix), Django, Python, Foxes (UsefulNotes/MozillaFirefox), Snow Leopard (Mac OS X Snow Leopard), Website/{{Scratch}} Cat, Julia, and many, ''many'' more.
