** Tired of nitpicking, ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' "resolved" the issue by making [[http://xkcd.com/1589/ its own version]] of ''Frankenstein'' where it ''is'' the monster's name, so that people can say that is their canonical version.

* Possibly ur-example: Literature/{{Frankenstein}} is ''not'' the name of [[FrankensteinsMonster the monster]], but the last name of his creator. The monster does lay claim to it towards the end of the book though, considering himself the Doctor's son more or less.

* Referenced in the book ''Are You A Geek?'', where one of the things *** ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' had a similar joke, with Homer bitterly remarking that gets you points is "You get annoyed when people assume "I swore never to read again after ''To Kill a Mockingbird'' gave me no useful advice on killing mockingbirds! [[AnAesop It did teach me not to judge a man by the color of his skin]], but what good does that the name of the film is also the name of the main character, shouting things like 'Come on, Film/DieHard!' and 'Get 'em, Film/TotalRecall1990!'"do me?"
