* The girls in ''ComicBook/{{Witch}}'' are not witches. If anything they are {{Magical Girl}}s. The title comes from their initials: Will, Irma, Tarnee, Cornelia, and Hay Lin.

to:

* A lot of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' fans think Super Sonic from ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' is named "Fleetway". Fleetway is the name of the ''publisher'', not the name of anyone in the comic. Super Sonic is just called "Super Sonic". Nevertheless "Fleetway" has become a FanNickname for him as well.

* The {{Micronauts}} lampshade this in the case of Commander Rann who is supposed to be based on the Space Glider toy from the Mego toyline. In the roll-call artwork on the splash page, he is named as "Space Glider". While recounting events from his past life, he actually notes that "Space Glider" is not a name but a rank. Understandably, this was probably done in a move to establish Commander Arcturus Rann as a Marvel created character, thus assuring ownership. Easily done, as his character wasn't too dependent on looking that much like the toy, anyway.

In the roll-call artwork on the splash page, he is named as "Space Glider". Glider", but never in the actual dialogue. While recounting events from his past early life, he actually notes that "Space Glider" is not a name but a rank.

* A popular example (and, [[CaptainObvious obviously]], the TropeNamer) is ''{{ComicBook/Shazam}}'', the title used for most works involving Creator/DCComics' Captain Marvel ([[Main/IAmNotShazam pictured on the main page]]). Due to a trademark agreement with Creator/MarvelComics, DC cannot use the character's name for the series title but can for inside the comic itself, so they use his [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull transformation phrase]] instead; this leads to people mistaking the phrase ''for'' his name. This is especially strange, considering he himself has to be careful about using the phrase--"Shazam!" ''always'' summons a bolt of magical lightning whether Billy means to transform or not (or that's the case pre-New 52, anyway).

** Captain Marvel has recently had his name changed to "Shazam" in the {{New 52}}, where he was reimagined as a [[DarkerAndEdgier grittier]], more relatable character. He starred in the ''Curse of Shazam!'' miniseries presented as a back-up feature in the main ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]]'' book, and has since started to appear in the ''Justice League'' books. As he now needs to specifically channel his willpower (his "intent") while saying "Shazam" for the spell to work, he doesn't have to worry about summoning lightning bolts every time he introduces himself.

to:

* The Gwen Stacy of Earth-65 is not referred to as ComicBook/SpiderGwen, but "Spider-Woman". It's just that we already ''have'' a ComicBook/SpiderWoman with her own title and the Spider-Gwen name was such a popular FanNickname that it became AscendedFanon.

* CaptainAtom's splinter [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]] in the '90s? They aren't actually ''called'' "Extreme Justice," you know; that's just the name of the book.

* Tommy Monaghan is not called [[ComicBook/{{Hitman}}]] in his own series, nor does he identify himself by that name, preferring "Tommy". However, in tie-in comics where he appears, people do refer to him by that name.
