* ''CodeGeass'' gives us the rather unintuitive acronym, "F.L.E.I.J.A", which stands for '''F'''ield '''L'''imitary '''E'''ffective '''I'''mplosion '''A'''rmament. The "J" doesn't stand for anything; it is only there to facilitate the word's pronunciation as "Freya". If the reference to the Norse goddess was intentional, one wonders why they didn't just call it the '''F'''ission '''R'''eaction-'''E'''nhanced '''Y'''ield '''A'''rmament.

* ''{{MAR}}: '''M'''aerchen '''A'''wakens '''R'''omance''
to:
* ''{{MAR}}: '''M'''aerchen '''A'''wakens '''R'''omance'''''R'''omance'', though why they kept the dieresis on the A of "Awakens" is anyone's guess.

Added DiffLines:
* ''{{MAR}}: '''M'''aerchen '''A'''wakens '''R'''omance''''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' has '''MON''', which stands for either the {{Engrish}}-y "'''M'''onsters '''O'''f a '''N'''euro" (in the original manga), "'''M'''onster '''O'''ps: '''N'''eutralization" (in the translated edition), or '''MON'''ster's New Law" (in the anime), which is not an acronym anymore. Either way, it's a special squad of {{CuteMonsterGirl}}s that acts beyond the law.
