* Pretty much every character in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' has an incredibly badass name! Phoenix Wright himself may have had debatably the most awesome name of all in the ''Ace Attorney'' series--and that's saying something with people named Maya Fey and Miles Edgeworth and Franziska von Karma in the same zip code--until Apollo Justice came along, and with him people with names such as Shadi Enigmar, and Kristoph and Klavier Gavin.

** The Arbiter is a pretty cool title, but there's something about "Thel Vadam" that not only sounds awesome, but fits the character perfectly.
** Forerunners give their children [[NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom Names That Unfold Like Lotus Blossoms]], some of which are pretty sweet: ''Bornstellar Makes Eternal Lasting'', ''Splendid Dust of Ancient Suns'', and, perhaps coolest of all, ''Glory of a Far Dawn''. Some are simply known by their titles, and don't tell me being known as "The Didact" wouldn't be awesome. But the real prize for this trope has to go to ''Bitterness-of-the-Vanquished.''
*** Even better, the Didact's birth name is ''Shadow-of-Sundered-Star''.

** The BigBad of ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' is named Max Profitt Haltmann. With a name like that, he was all but destined to become the phenomenally wealthy corporate big-shot that he is.

** ''Ganondorf''. It's Ganondorf ''Dragmire''. Not that his full name gets brought up more than once or twice in the whole series....
*** The "Dragmire" thing was a woolseysm done by Nintendo of America, and it was mentioned ''once'', in the A Link To the Past's manual. Ganondorf is still pretty cool, though.

* ''VideoGame/DeathSmiles'', being about blasting the crap out of an army of demons, decided to just go for pure over-the-top awesome for the name of the final boss: Demonic Imperator Tyrannosatan. And he is every bit as freakishly badass as his name implies.

* ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' pretty much requires every vampire, ghoul, and vampire hunter to have an awesome name. Including but not limited to:
** Ming Xiao
** Bruno Giovanni
** Velvet Velour
** Nines Rodriguez
** Grünfeld Bach
** Maximilian Strauss
** Sebastian LaCroix
** Frankly it is quite telling that Barabus and Mercurio are among the simpler names.

* ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack'' gives us [[BigBad Necrodeus]], which literally translates from Latin as ''Death God''.

** [[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.
