* ''Franchise/YuGiOh:'' The majority of monsters are just named after what they are, and only less than half of them have proper names, such as Osiris/[[DubNameChange Slifer]], Raviel, Wisel, Kibou'ou Hope/[[DubNameChange Utopia]] or Kali Yuga. For example Black/Dark Magician is always called Black/Dark Magician (even though Mahad might be a valid name for him) and Blue-Eyes White Dragon is always called Blue-Eyes White Dragon (or simply Blue-Eyes for short). This trope is particularly common with Dragon-Type monsters, with only a handful of those having proper names, e.g. Blaster, Ultimaya Tzolkin or Ignister. Most characters in the various anime and manga series shorten the names of the "nameless" dragons by simply leaving out "Dragon" or other words, for example "Blue-Eyes" for Blue-Eyes White Dragon, "Ultimate Dragon" for Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, "Red-Eyes" for Red-Eyes Black Dragon, "Stardust" for Stardust Dragon, "Shooting Star" for Shooting Star Dragon, "Ancient Fairy" for Ancient Fairy Dragon, "Red Daemon's" for Red Daemon's Dragon, "Odd-Eyes" for Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, "Odd-Eyes Rebellion" or "Haohkokuryuu" for [[OverlyLongName Haohkokuryuu - Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon]], or "Starve Venom" for Starve Venom Fusion Dragon.

Those shorten names are always used as if they are actual names.

** There's also a Welsh dragon names Ddraig. Of course, [[AllMythsAreTrue given the setting]] it's plausible he isn't names after Welsh dragons - Welsh dragons are probably named after him.

* ''Manga/BlackButler:'' [[spoiler:Angela is a AngelUnaware.]]
* In Manga/CMonDigimon, Makoto Abe and Kentaro Kamon are the only ones who actually give their monsters names. Everyone else merely calls them what they are (Meramon, Deathmon, ect). Downplayed in Manga/DigimonVTamer01, where most plot relevant monsters do have names and out right {{subverted|trope}} in Arkadimon's case, as that ''is'' it's name. On the other hand, Bun's species name is only implied but never outright confirmed while Arkadimon, Pal and Pul's species names are ''never'' given(well, Pal and Pul were called Petitmamon years after V-tamer was done). The ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' as whole played this totally straight after C-Mon and V-Tamer were done though, despite some monsters being fluent in human language (unless you count Chaos Lord and Neo Crimson from ''Videogame/DigimonWorld2''. Once again, [[InvertedTrope species names never revealed]])



-->'''Misaka 10032''': A cat named "dog". [[EmotionlessGirl Heh heh heh.]]

** One of Rias' [[ChessMotifs Pieces]] is a junior {{Catgirl}} named Koneko, Koneko being Japanese for kitten (or literally, small cat). [[spoiler:Justified, as it's an alias given to her by OccidentalOtaku Rias. Her real name is Shirone.]]

** Oddly, in ''Anime/TheBigO'', there was a ''cat'' named Perro.[[note]]Though, in Japanese, "pero" is also the onomatopoeia used for cats licking themselves (Japanese has no double-R), giving an alternate explanation for the name.[[/note]]
