* In ''Manga/AsteroidInLove'', the reason for Asuka Tomori, a fellow participant in the Shining Star Challenge, to get into astronomy in the first place is this trope—-she's a fan of Neon, an IdolSinger who is supposed to be an astronomy enthusiast.


* ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Street Fighter Alpha 2]]'': Sakura is [[TheProtagonist Ryu's]] no.1 fan and self-appointed apprentice. Going so far as to emulate his fighting style, including wearing a headband identical to his own. When she finally caught up to him and asked Ryu to train her, he refused, citing he was still in the midst of his own training. However, he didn't leave her empty-handed. Ryu gave her his old wrist guards as a parting gift and told her to seek him out again once she had gained true strength and found her reason to fight. Sakura has never taken them off since.
* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G. II]]'' plays the trope straight and for laughs with Tamao's [[HeroWorshipper hero worship]] of [[TheProtagonist Yuka.]] Tamao sees Yuka as her role model, who she affectionately refers to [[CoolBigSis as "sempai"]], and entered the VG Tournament so she could meet her. The cutscene preceding her match with Yuuki even shows that Tamao literally has a Yuka T-shirt, a ballcap and jersey with Yuka's logo, and fan posters of her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1-gCrAwNZc (seen at 0:32-0:43)!]]

** Consummate geek Jason Fox loved the first two ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies. ''Return of the King'' was less enjoyable; the difference being that his teen sister Paige was now an Orlando Bloom fangirl.

* ''Machinima/MGTSchool'':
** Rasta was like to Seira. She had [[WingdingEyes heart eyes]] when Seira came by, jumped up eagerly, and got excited when Seira knew her name. [[spoiler:She stopped being a fangirl when she realized that Seira is a cold-hearted monster]].
** Creamy Chan from "[[Recap/MGTSchoolEpisode11FanFreak Fan Freak]]" is also a huge fangirl to Akira, refers to her as "Akira-senpai", and even follows Akira around.

** In ''Film/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', Naruto has become famous after winning the war and has gained a very large female fan base, being fawned over immensely and receiving countless gifts from his many female admirers during the Rinne Festival. However, he is far more interested in his childhood secret admirer Hinata, since she liked him before he became famous.

* ''FanFic/TheSomewhatCrackedMindOfUchihaItachi'': Samehada ''hates'' them, which is a problem because most female Academy students were fan girls. Sakura and Ino even originally joined the summer camp as fan girls of Sasuke, only to break out of that mindset as they came to know Sasuke as a person along with being influenced to focus on their ninja careers more.
* ''FanFic/YetAgain'': Fan girls are a great source of humor in this fic. Along with being both Scabbard's BerserkButton and greatest fear, they are the bane of Sasuke's existence. He faints at the idea of them ever learning the shadow clone jutsu, and both him and Itachi are utterly terrified of their horrific, YaoiFangirl evolution. During the TimeSkip, Sasuke eventually had to resort to wearing a mask a la Kakashi-style; the last time he took it off, there was a massive fan girl ''riot'' outside his home.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/SpiritHunterNG'', the Kijima sisters both become huge fans of the children's horror author Yakumo Miroku. Natsumi was motivated to become a horror novelist herself because of him, while Satomi became his housekeeper [[spoiler:and conceived his child.]] Neither of them were aware that he was so good at writing horror because [[spoiler:he himself committed horrific acts of surgical BodyHorror on girls that he kidnapped.]]

* ''Webcomic/RWBYVisions'': Ruby's deceased mother Summer was a famous celebrity. Ruby is a fangirl of her mother and owns a lot of her merch. This is both due to admiration and a desire to better understand the mother she barely knew.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' fandom opinion is divided whether Missi is simply an over eager fangirl about Ash or a creepy StalkerWithACrush. It's [[InternetBackdraft strongly recommended to not mention the subject]] on the fan forum.
