* This is almost omnipresent in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. While the species names are either PokemonSpeak or VerbalTicName, it's a little weird that nearly every pet Pokémon is named after its species. This is most likely due to marketing reasons (viewers would get confused and think that the given nickname is what the whole species is called).

This is most likely due to marketing reasons (viewers would get confused and think that the given nickname is what the whole species is called). The number of nicknamed owned by main characters can be counted on one hand: Misty's Luvdisc named Casrein, James's Growlithe named Growlie and Lillie's Vulpix named Shrion. Apart from that, nicknamed Pokémon are mostly owned by very minor or one-shot characters.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' has [[PollyWantsAMicrophone Mr. Puffin]], the strangely [[FormallyNamedPet formally named]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin puffin]] that serves as [[IJustWantToBeNormal Iceland's]] [[NonHumanSidekick constant companion]] and [[VitriolicBestBuds friend]]. He's a strange case in a series where most of the nations' close animals have non-species names.

* A partial example in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. The villains of the series are the Homunculi, and the original one, who eventually becomes the "father" of the others, was called Homunculus. It's a partial example because he was also known as "the Dwarf in the Flask" (and is addressed using both names together, as "Dwarf in the Flask, Homunculus"), and once he's created his offspring, he's referred to as "Father" by most characters. It's worth noting, however, that Hohenheim ''always'' calls him "Homunculus" and/or "Dwarf in the Flask", and once his "children" have been defeated/killed, other characters do so as well.

* Hakase in ''Manga/Nichijou'' sort of counts, as "hakase" is the Japanese word for "professor", and she was never revealed to have a real name.

* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', we have Simon's pet pig-mole, Boota (or Buta). Buta literally means "pig" or "swine" in Japanese[[note]]e.g. [[Anime/PorcoRosso Kurenai No Buta]], which means "Pig of Crimson", or "Red Pig".[[/note]]



* In ''Manga/{{SuperLovers}}'', Tanuki/Racoon. It's a little complicated..
