** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' seems to be a weird subversion of this trope... Until you see their surnames. "Tifa Lockhart", "Vincent Valentine", "Aerith / [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Aeris]] Gainsborough", "Red XIII"/[[spoiler: Nanaki]]... Cloud Strife also manages to overcome his otherwise improbable name by being incredibly {{Badass}}. Oh, and they're fighting ''Sephiroth''. The only really normal one is "Barret Wallace". Barret in Japanese is Baretto, which is how you pronounce "bullet" in Japanese so he ''definitely'' qualifies for AwesomeMcCoolname. Sephiroth or Sephirot are the 10 attributes/emanations through which God can manifest in Jewish Kabbalah. However, there's also brothers Nero and Weiss in ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'': ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' (Black and White respectively).

** ''Shou Toramaru'': star tiger-circle. Also, "-maru" postfix makes one's name sounds more {{Badass}} and manly (she is a {{Bifauxnen}}).

** * From ''VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten'' Desco. Not cool enough for you? How about what its an acronym for: DEATH AND EXTERMINATION SUBMERSIBLE COMBAT ORGANISM. Add that to the fact that Desco is a {{Moe}} {{Badass}} EldritchAbomination LargeHam.

** [[VideoGame/StarWarsGalaxies]] had Talonbane Cobra, who, although he went down against a less-experienced PC, appeared in much more fittingly awesome form in the X-Wing Miniatures Game.

** Quite a few companions in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'' have pretty sick names, including Curie (named for Marie Curie), John Hancock (no not that one), Piper Wright, Codsworth, Deacon, and Strong (he's a Super Mutant). Also, your main character can have a myriad of spoken names in the game; these can be as common as 'John' or 'Evelyn', as amazing as '[[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad Furiosa' or 'Rockatansky']], or as hilarious as 'Fuckface' and 'Titties'.

** ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'' gives us Rayfa Padma Khura'in, a regal-sounding name that's perfect for the young princess and priestess of Khura'in. Her family is just as well-named too: the current queen Ga'ran Sigatar Khura'in, her husband Inga Karkuul Khura'in, and the former queen Amara Sigatar Khura'in.
