* In ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'', Haruyuki, Chiyuri and Takumu, who have been friends since they were young, refer to one another by their abbreviated names, "Haru," "Chiyu/Chii-chan," "Taku/Takkun". At the end of the Dusk Taker arc, one sign of how [[FireForgedFriends the initially frosty relations between Chiyu and Kuroyukihime have improved]] is that Kuroyukihime starts calling Chiyu by her first name.

** Strictly speaking, not all of the Straw Hats even ''have'' family names, or at least ones we've been made privy to. Nami, Usopp, and Brook don't have the chance to go by surnames, even to strangers. Franky and Sanji's legal names both have surnames, but neither of them use them, since Franky faked his death and [[spoiler: Sanji's legal name--Sanji Vinsmoke-- is literally just a label that means "the third Vinsmoke", not an actual name]]. Of the Straw Hats that do have family names, only Chopper uses his regularly, and that's probably just because "Tony-Tony" is kind of awkward to say.

* Momoka in ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' is unable to call Fuyuki by his first name until she blurts it out while saving him from some alien cuisine that wasn't quite dead yet. Fuyuki, meanwhile, is oblivious to all of this.

* Everybody in ''Anime/{{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.

* It's probably easier to name the major characters in the ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' anime that ''do'' have full names: Shigeru Okido/Gary Oak, Professor Yukinari Okido/Samuel Oak, Ash Ketchum, Tracy Sketchit, and Delia Ketchum. In fact, Ash and Tracey are the ''only'' main characters that have had a last name given and that is only in the English dub. Kasumi/Misty, Takeshi/Brock, Haruka/May, Masato/Max, Hikari/Dawn, Iris, and Dent/Cilan are only known on FirstNameBasis.

"Sakura-sensei". Megu-nee wishes they would call her "Sakura-sensei" but they rarely do.
* ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'':
** Subverted with Togo. She's best friends with the rest of the main characters but no one calls her "Mimori". Togo explicitly asked them to use her surname and Yuna likes the way "Togo-san" sounds.
** Played straight with everyone else. They're TrueCompanions who all call each other by their given names. Not soon after meeting the SixthRanger Karin, Yuna immediately starts calling her by her name, which shocks her but Karin still allows it.

** This was carried over in TsubasaReservoirChronicle, where, when Sakura is the princess of Clow Country, Shaoran respectfully calls her 'princess' on every occasion, even though she insists that, as old childhood friends, they must stay on a first name basis. When Shaoran, later in the manga, exchanges Sakura's memories of him for the chance to save her life and politely addresses him as Syaoran-kun, he [[TheWoobie stops calling her 'Sakura' and reverts to 'princess.']]
*** It's even [[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded]] in the Koryo Country Arc: Syaoran can tell the Sakura in front of him is an illusion because she calls him by his first name, and [[TheWoobie they are not in first name basis anymore]].

* The scene in ''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.

* In ''Manga/{{Freezing}}'', Rana Linchin makes a point to force the protagonist, Kazuya Aoi, whom she believes to be her soulmate, to refer to her solely by her first name, snapping at him whenever he attempts to add an {{honorific}} to it. This is immediately followed by Satellizer forcing him to do the same with her.

** In the English dub, Kaiba is called by his first name by his family. In the Japanese, version, Mokuba calls him "Nii-sama" instead. Also in the Japanese version, Kaiba's employees call him "Seto-sama", and Ishizu calls him "Seto".



* ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'': Everyone calls Yuma, his pals or Kaito by their first name. Only a few characters actually call Shark by his given name instead by his nickname.

** The main reason why Nagisa insists of being called by his first name is [[spoiler:he doesn't want to get used to his mother's family name, in hope that he would get his father's name back if his parents reconcile with each other. Years later, Nagisa's own students call him by his first name as well]].
