** Rikka is still one despite being a tenth grader. She constantly sees the world through the lens of her imaginative identity, an ElegantGothicLolita "the Wicked Eye." Her case is an IndecisiveDeconstruction, because while her family (especially her grand father) is worried about her future, she's not old enough yet to face large societal consequences (though she suffered bullying in school over it, much like Yuuta). Yuuta also tries to help her get over it, because he knows how bad things will become for her from personal experience.

* Non-character example: the "Use Your Imagination" promo that ran in the early 2000s on ''Creator/PBSKids'' to signal the start of the block as well as being at the beginning of tapes distributed by PBS pretty much is this trope, encouraging children to, well, use their imaginations. It even says "Even when it's raining, you can make the sky blue" in the most cheerful manner possible.

** Averted with Bart. He has lost his ability to use his imagination along with his ability to focus. On? Um? What? Ah, forget it, let's watch some TV. However, he likes his video games for which he needs both focus and imagination.

He's masqueraded as Film/JamesBond, [[Literature/TheSaint Simon Templar]] and Music/FrankSinatra, as well as a few OCs.

Added DiffLines:

* A heartbreakingly darker version is from ''[[Literature/{{Push}} Precious]]'' with the main character, an impoverished, morbidly obese, illiterate and pregnant [[spoiler:through incestuous rape]] Black teenager deals with her painful existence by fantasizing about how she is a world-famous and well-loved celebrity with a [[ButNotTooBlack light-skinned boyfriend]] and respected by her abusive mother and her indifferent teacher. Even when her mother informs her that [[spoiler: father is dead from AIDS and that she possibly has been exposed herself]], Precious goes back into her fantasy world briefly, only for her mother to [[KickTheDog point out how irritated she is by her not listening to her due to her fantasizing.]]


A person with a huge imagination, who spends most of the time in his or her own imaginary world, frequently out of touch with reality. Often the main character, and usually a CheerfulChild and/or a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. A show with them has lots of [[FantasySequence imagination sequences]], maybe also [[DreamSequence dream ones]]. May have an ImaginaryFriend. In many (but not all) instances, the imaginative character is a RealityWarper, and his/her odd daydreams [[YourMindMakesItReal can temporarily become real]].

Added DiffLines:

* Sydney from ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' has this as her defining character trait. Her purpose on the show is to represent the power of imagination in science. She often leads the gang in various [[ImagineSpot Imagine Spots]], usually themed after her favorite franchise, ''[[ShowWithinAShow Commander Cressida]]''.


* PlayedForDrama in Creator/scratchU8's ''[[https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/10882226/ Backstory]]'' projects on Website/{{Scratch}}. Since he was constantly abused by his adoptive BigBrotherBully, Buiji, scratchU8[[note]]The character, not the user[[/note]] ended up spending time in his fantasy world and [[spoiler:[[AdventuresInComaland eventually falling into coma]], leaving his family worried. He later, in his own world, discovers [[TearJerker emotional and heartbreaking]] hints of the real world, revealing his real name is Cam. At the very end, scratchU8 jumps to his death and goes back to the real world.]]


* ''LightNovel/KagerouDaze'': Kido is a [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] example; she leads the Mekakushi Dan (Blindfold Gang), and likes to invoke and cultivate a JapaneseDelinquents-esque image with simple rules like "always wear your hood up" and "block out the world with your headphones". The lyrics of her ImageSong, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM-U279Z03c Blindfold Code]], seem like she's describing the gang as a non-exclusive club of heroes, and that secret missions are a daily occurrence. [[spoiler:To be fair, the first thing we see the gang do is ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome prevent a terrorist attack]]'', and the story is on a time-loop lasting 2 days, so that last part is technically true]].

* The trailer for ''Private Franchise/{{BEMANI}} Academy'', a cross-game event with various BEMANI in-house musicians in a HighSchoolAU, features MAX MAXIMIZER as a NewTransferStudent introducing himself as "the last guardian of corruption and despair" in a [[LargeHam hammy]] distorted voice while wearing a hooded cloak. It's clear he's just LostInCharacter in-universe and his antics aren't taken seriously, as his friend DJ TOTTO chimes in casually introducing himself as a fellow transfer student.
