* In ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' we have Organization XIII, made up of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin thirteen Nobodies]], and each and every one has an awesome name: We have Xemnas, Xibgar, Xaldin, Vexen, Lexaeus, Zexion, Saïx, Axel, Demyx, Luxord, Marluxia, Larxene, Roxas, and finally, for ''358/2 Days'', Xion. Most of the names are justified because when a person with a strong will is turned into a humanoid Nobody, Xemnas recruits them and gives them a new name by scrambling the letters and adding an 'x' into it. Even then, quite a few had less-than-average names, with Vexen's (Even) being the most common.

** For what it's worth, more family-friendly games may enforce this: both ''FusionFall'' and ''VideoGame/FreeRealms'' use a name generator as the default; in ''Free Realms'' at least you ''can'' make up your own name but it has to be approved.

* [[BadassGrandpa Valkenhayn R.]] [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Hellsing]]. ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' has plenty of awesome names, like [[HighlyVisibleNinja Bang]] [[MemeticBadass Shishigami]], but the probably-werewolf BattleButler really takes the cake.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSexyBrutale'', the titular mansion is named InUniverse thus because it sounds "glamorous." Moreover, all of the guests are named interesting names, like Tequila Belle or Lafcadio Boone.

Added DiffLines:

** In the series' backstory, Tiber Septim, the [[FounderOfTheKingdom founder]] of the Third Tamriellic Empire who [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascended after his death]] as [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Talos]], the Ninth Divine, had a few, some doubling as RedBaron titles. His original name ([[HistoricalHeroUpgrade at least according to Imperial orthodoxy]]) was "Talos", meaning "Stormcrown" in Ehlnofex, the language of the ancient {{Precursors}}. Other names he's been known to go by include Hjalti, Wulf, Ysmir (meaning "Dragon of the North"), and more.

* ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'': In the game-within-a-game VisualNovel "Beautiful Attempt", you can, instead of telling the love interest your real name (which is apparently hilariously awkward and shameful) give a fake, romantic name: "Vaughn St. Lovecastle". Once you've imagined all the Harlequin romance novels a guy with that name should be the hunky lead for, and their requisite covers with him lying on bearskin rugs in front of the fireplace, recall that he's a gangly, teenaged, asian-stereotyped Hylotl with a strong resemblance to a three-eyed frog and an obsession with air hockey.
