"I know you hear this from, like everyone, but I'm your number one fan!"
Rose, Alan Wake
"By Azura, by Azura, by Azura! It's the Grand Champion!"
—Universally-hated words uttered by the Adoring Fan, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
"I'm your biggest fan, I'll follow you until you love me/Papa-paparazzi"
Papparazzi, Lady Gaga

Stock gush over a major celebrity. If this is said by a minor character, expect them to become a Loony Fan (or Ascended Fanboy), though often it's a main character squeeing over someone else. "Number One Fan" is another common term.

Sometimes linked to a visual gag where the person saying it is unusually tall or tiny.

See also Ascended Fanboy and Straw Fan. If taken too far, it turns into an Abhorrent Admirer, or even worse, a Stalker with a Crush. When it's the hero, it is often said to an old, retired character -- which can be a great shock to his own fans, who assumed that old man had to be insignificant.

Examples of I'm Your Biggest Fan include:


Anime

  • Light's sister says this to Misa (a semi-famous model) in Death Note.
  • Sailor Moon: the moment the Sailor Starlights show up and the girls get out their fan club membership cards.
  • Jerry, the policeman from Kaleido Star. He says it before the main character had even been to her audition.
  • Torakichi feels this way to Sakuraba in Eyeshield 21. Sakuraba really doesn't mind.
    • Kurita to Onihei.
    • And Monta to baseball outfielder Masaru Honjo, until he had to compete against his son in the Christmas Bowl.
  • Skip Beat starts out about a girl who has a major crush on her childhood-friend-turned-celebrity. That doesn't last long.

Comic Books

  • In Avengers: The Initiative, Reptil freaks out and says this when he meets Cloud 9, saying he's got all her merchandise, from the action figures to the commemorative plates. Then he asks her to go to Homecoming with him. Yeah...
  • Booster Gold, needing Sinestro to not do something to protect the space-time continuum, resorts to this. This stops Sinestro long enough for Booster to go squee over him, and persuade him that the time travelers who'd pointed him in this direction had actually been liars who were trying to get him to reveal his fears.
  • Knives Chau is noted as this for Sex Bob-om in Scott Pilgrim, although it gets worse
  • Juggernaut to Dazzler in an issue of The Uncanny X-Men.

Film

  • The Incredibles: Early on Mr. Incredible's Loony Fan Buddy says "I'm your number one fan!" Mr. Incredible tells him he works alone. It doesn't end well because later on when Mr. Incredible meets up with an older Buddy who's now a dangerous villain named Syndrome, now vengeful and obsessed with getting revenge on Mr. Incredible, he tells him this Nightmare Fuel filled line:

  Syndrome: Sure it was difficult, but you are worth it! I mean after all... I am your biggest fan.

  • Run Ronnie Run
  • Fans Anonymous. Alice Dobbs to Newton Coleman.
  • The Nines.
  • In Mulan 2 Li returns the lost paper fan of one of the princesses and makes a joke based around the rather lame obvious pun.
  • In That Thing You Do, the drummer from the Wonders meets his favorite jazz musician, and he's so awestruck that he blurts out, "You're my biggest fan!"
  • Misery is built on this, a writer is nursed by an obsesive fan, and the fan turns out to be The Sociopath.

Literature

  • Annie Wilkes says this repeatedly in Misery. It gets a Call Back in the end of the film version when someone else uses the line, and Paul briefly hallucinates that she's Annie.

Live Action TV

  • Doctor Who episode "The Unquiet Dead". The Doctor to Charles Dickens.
    • Also in the Doctor Who mini-episode "Time Crash":

 Fifth Doctor: Who are you?

Tenth Doctor: Take a look.

Fifth Doctor: Oh. Oh, no.

Tenth Doctor: Oh, yes.

Fifth Doctor: You're... Oh, no.

Tenth Doctor: [smugly, nodding] Here it comes, yeah, yeah I am..

Fifth Doctor: [sighs] A fan!

Tenth Doctor: Yeah... [beat] What?

...

Tenth Doctor: What do you mean a fan? I'm not just a fan, I'm you-

Fifth Doctor: OK, you're my biggest fan.

  • Happens in Drake and Josh, apparently.
  • Penelope, from The Amanda Show. She loves Amanda...
  • The titular character of Frasier gets the "Number One Fan" line in one episode.
  • On Night Court, Judge Harry is a huge fan of Real Life singer Mel Torme, but makes an utter fool of himself every time they bump into each other.
  • And a young fan gushes this repeatedly over a pop star in Dollhouse after winning an internet contest to spend the evening with her. She's actually Sierra, who's been programmed with the personality of an adoring fangirl to serve as Echo's backup on a mission to secretly protect said pop star.
  • An episode of CSI featuring Rascal Flatts as guest stars had a girl hold a piece of evidence they needed (a guitar one of the band was using at the time of the crime). Her room is plastered from wall to wall with Rascal Flatts memorabilia, and she isn't happy when they have to take the guitar.
  • In A Muppet Family Christmas, Kermit's present to Piggy is a mink. To her surprise, it's a live mink from Joisey named Maureen. Piggy starts to get angry, but then Maureen declares herself Piggy's biggest fan, leading her to decide it's a wonderful present.

Music

 Mmm, I am waiting,

Yes, I'm a captive fan,

I'm dying to be shown

That you are not just any man...

  • Used in the song My Name is Trouble, by Nightmare of You:

 So this is the last time that I'll hold your hand

I want to kiss you on the mouth and tell you

I'm your biggest fan

I'm your biggest fan

 I know you probably hear this everyday

But I'm your biggest fan

I even got the underground shit that you did with Scam

I got a room full of your posters

And your pictures man

I like the shit you did with Ruckus too

That shit was rad

Anyways, I hope you get this man,

Hit me back just to chat

Truly yours, your biggest fan

This is Stan

 Well later on that day this guy came to me

With a scrap of paper in his hand

He said, "Hey buddy, can you sign your name for me?"

I said, "Why, do I owe you money?" He said, "No"

I said, "Listen pal, do I know you? Have we ever met?

Why do you want my name on this little piece of paper?"

He said, "I love you,

I don't know you but I love you,

Like my brother I love you,

Put your arms around me 'cos I love you"

I said, "Hey let's not rush things."

Video Games

  • In Oblivion, if you complete the Arena sidequests you get your own Adoring Fan. Who indulges in this at every oppotunity. You can even have him follow you around and turn him into an Ascended Fanboy (well if being a handy-yet-annoying, portable, immortal torchbearer counts as ascension).
  • In The Sims (first game) once you had Studio Town, your Sims could both tell Studio Town characters "I'm your biggest fan!" and, if they had accumulated some fame of their own, be told so. They would also get a Loony Fan.
  • In The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Ferrus, a massive train fanboy, says this to Alfonzo, your engineering instructor at the beginning of the game. Then he realizes Alfonzo isn't all that he's cracked up to be.. Aww, shucks.
  • Kimmy Howell in the sequel to No More Heroes says this to Travis. In fact, she trains herself to be strong enough to take Travis out just to prove it.
  • Rose to the main character in Alan Wake. She even has a life-size cardboard cutout of him from the promotion of his last book.
  • Mario says this word for word in Hotel Mario when he discovers a giant fan in one of the hotels. *Groan*

Western Animation

 Captain Marvel: I'm Captain Marvel, sir, and it is an honor. You're my biggest fan...

Superman: Excuse me?!

Captain Marvel: I--I mean I'm your biggest fan! Sorry sir, it's a little overwhelming, meeting you.

Real Life

  • For a healthy dose of Harsher in Hindsight, remember that Mark Chapman greeted John Lennon this way.
