* The Nords and the Dragons in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' pretty much run on this trope. For example, the leader of the rebellion? Ulfric ''Stormcloak''. The name of the main antagonist is Alduin, which translates to '''Destroyer Devour Master''' and just so happens to have the moniker ''World-Eater''.
** A few AwesomeMcCoolname characters from Skyrim worth mentioning:
*** Ulfberth War-Bear.
*** Galmar Stone-Fist.
*** Torbjorn Shatter-Shield.
*** Eorlund Gray-Mane.
*** Jarl Balgruuf the Greater.
*** Idolaf Battle-Born.
*** Mjoll the Lioness.
*** Aela the Huntress.
*** Oengul War-Anvil.
*** Hermir Strong-Heart.
*** Bolgeir Bearclaw.
*** Falk Firebeard.
*** and subverted with [[ADudeNamedDude Vekel the Man]].
** While [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] is the common translation of "''[[YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord Dovahkiin]]''", a more accurate one would be "Dragonkind Hunter Born", which in English could be rendered as "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Born Hunter of Dragonkind]]". No wonder the Dragons [[OhCrap crap themselves]] whenever they see [[TheDreaded the Dragonborn]] on the battlefield.

The Nords Nords, Tamriel's ProudWarriorRace of HornyVikings, typically have first names pulled from medieval Norse while they have badass sounding clan names or sobriquets, leading to this - Ulfric Stormcloak, Arkming the Flayer, Ulfgar the Unending, Else God-Hater, Falk Firebeard, Frofnir Trollsbane, Aldi Winterblade, Ulfberth War-Bear, Galmar Stone-Fist, Torbjorn Shatter-Shield, Idolaf Battle-Born, Mjoll the Lioness, Alea the Huntress, Oengul War-Anvil, Hermir Strong-Heart, Bolgeir Bearclaw... The list goes on and the Dragons in on and on with ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' pretty much run on Skyrim]]'', set in the Nord homeland, providing many more. They are also known to subvert it with some rather lame sounding names mixed in, still in this trope. For example, fashion, such as [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude Vekel the leader of Man]], Nils the rebellion? Ulfric ''Stormcloak''. Bland, Horstar Home-Wrecker, Geilir the Mumbling...

The name names of the main antagonist is Dragons, when translated from Draconic, are a mix of this and LukeNounverber. Alduin, which the BeastOfTheApocalypse in ''ES'' lore and BigBad of ''Skyrim'', translates to '''Destroyer Devour Master''' and just so happens to have the moniker ''World-Eater''.
