* "Yatchan" in ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}'' (annoying cute shortening)
** Of course, this was after he called himself stupid under his breath and Rushuna initially called him "Mr Stupid", so he probably felt at the time it was more acceptable to be "Yatchan". Later on he seems to warm to the name.

* The scene in ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' where Aoyama Masaya first calls Momomiya Ichigo by her name instead of "Momomiya-san" is one of the unlucky ones to be [[DubInducedPlotHole passed over]] by [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment the English]] [[TokyoPop translators]], since the latter naturally always has characters use their first names.

** For some reason, Yuki never, ever calls Kyon anything but "[[JapanesePronouns anata]]". This is a minor plot point in one of the later short stories. This could be because he's apparently [[TheStoic the only person she talks to]].

** Yuto is the only character who calls Kurosaki by his first name, since they are best friends. And since Kurosaki was introduced by his given name first, the majority of the fandom sticks with his given name, despite the constant LastNameBasis around him.

* Everybody in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' seems to be on a FirstNameBasis with each other. Even the polite characters like Hinata and Lee use first names with {{Honorifics}} that would normally demand last names. In fact, outside of the Hidden Leaf and Hidden Mist Villages, it seems like 99% of the cast has OnlyOneName to begin with (and it's worth noting that even some of the characters from the Leaf and Mist don't seem to have surnames either). In flashbacks of Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha's childhood, it's revealed that shinobi during the warring clans era were instructed not to give out their surnames, in case they ran into someone from an opposing clan. Perhaps this practice ended up influencing present-day ninja culture by making FirstNameBasis the customary form of address.

* In ''Manga/TheRoyalTutor'', the fact that Heine casually calls [[spoiler: King Viktor]] by their first name in private reveals that they have known each other far longer than Heine first claimed and are actually quite comfortable and open with each other.
