* In the ''VideoGame/{{Arfenhouse}}'' series, one of the major characters is a dog literally named DOG. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the prologue of the third game, where a normal-talking Commander, trying to think of a suitable formal address, has to settle for calling the character "Mr. Dog." There's also the antagonist of the first two games, a cat named [[CatsAreMean Evil Kitty]] (who later [[FaceHeelTurn becomes Good Kitty]]), and a [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]] named PIKACHU (or possibly PIAKCHU, no thanks to the deliberate prevalence of typos in the text).

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' gives us a frog named Frog, a robot named Robo, and a wizard named Magus (Latin for wizard). While none of those are actually the character's real name, that's what they're called most frequently. Crono himself probably counts as well, since he's a time traveler whose name means "time." ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' also gives us a kid named Kid.

** Haunter's [[DubNameChange name in Japan]] is simply "Ghost" and the Ghost-type is still referred to as such over there. The names of some of the earlier Pokémon in Japan are also just whatever they're based on. For example, Kakuna is "Cocoon", Pidgeotto is "Pigeon", and Krabby is "Crab".

** Due to behind-the-scenes demands, many new characters of old species were subject to this in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar''. Wiggler, the Snifit host and the many Toads are the most noticeable of this phenomenon.

** A later game features a nue named Nue. However, her spellcards, dialog, and the fact she's the only known nue in the series suggest that she might be ''the'' Nue.
