Added DiffLines:

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' trumps them all with the diminutive and child-like Zen-O, which translates to "King of All" - a fitting name for the franchise's TopGod.

* His name, as an [[ProfessionalKiller elite killer]] from [[TheSyndicate Millennion]], was Brandon Heat. Then he was killed. And later, [[BackFromTheDead resurrected]]. Call him by his nickname, Grave. Of course, his given name is now Beyond. ''{{Gungrave}}'''s [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Beyond the Grave]], possibly the badassest name ever seen.

** Even minor scientist character Laguna Glock gets one. And then there's Bob Poundmax. In the world of Gungrave, even if your own name is [[FatBastard calling you a tremendous fatass]], it still sounds awesome.

* The ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' franchise Gives us names like Fate Testarossa, Subaru Nakajima, Teana Lanster, Vita, Signum etc. Some devices' names, such as Mach Caliber, Cross Mirage and Storm Raider sound cool as well. Ironically, the most {{Badass}} among all of them goes by the rather plain name of "Nanoha Takamachi" and her device is named "Raising Heart."

*** Dio also means god in italian, perfect for his AGodAmI tendencies. By Stardust Crusaders he becomes so BadAss, his name actually changes from "Dio" to "[[CapsLock DIO]]".

* ''Manga/InuYasha'' gives us yet another [[MasterOfIllusion Byakuya]] ("Midnight Sun", as mentioned above), [[TheHeartless Magatsuhi]] ("God of Destruction") [[BloodKnight Bankotsu]] ("Reckless Courage"), [[BigBad Naraku]] ("Hell"), and, the one who doubtlessly takes the cake, [[NobleDemon Sesshomaru]] ("Deathly Perfection" or "Circle of Death"). The latter three are as {{Badass}} as you'd expect. Then there's [[TheHero Inuyasha]] himself - the meaning is nowhere near as awesome as the others, but a name that means "Dog Demon" has some cool points going for it.

* Everyone in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. Even when their names sound silly, like VanillaIce, Wham, or Speedwagon (nearly everyone is named after a band) they still manage to work within the series.

* TrinityBlood, anyone? ''Abel Nightroad'' sounds already cool enough, the other cast members' names only add to this.

* Very common with Japanese names in anime and manga, where the names often have special meanings when written in their kanji forms. Many anime/manga authors tend to aim for a specific meaning when naming their characters, thus overlapping with MeaningfulName. The Awesome [=McCoolness=] is often LostInTranslation due to the fact that english translations tend to only show the romanji forms.



* Very common with Japanese names in anime and manga. Due to reasons explained in the Real Life section they can be difficult to translate, but unlike in Real Life, many anime/manga authors are going for a specific meaning when naming their characters.

* Oh, and BlackButler. Seriously, how many children have the luck to be named ''Ciel Phantomhive''? And then we have ''Alois Trancy'' ([[spoiler:which isn't his real name, however]]), ''Angela Durless'' and ''Grell[[SpellMyNameWithAnS (e)]] Sutcliffe. And so forth... The [[BattleButler titular Butlers]] would technically count too, but their human names were given them by their masters.

* In ''[[LightNovel/{{Overlord2012}} Overlord]]'' we Shalltear Bloodfallen, who is fittingly a vampire. It's also a MeaningfulName in that she "'''shall tear''' them to pieces" and uses the '''blood''' of the '''fallen''' for her magic.
