* DragonBallZ has Vegeta insisting on calling Goku by his Saiyan birth name of Kakarot. When he calls Goku by his Earth name, it's a sign he's NotHimself.

* A more meta example: The cast of ''Manga/MyMonsterGirlsTooCoolForYou'' includes several {{youkai}}. While they are more properly called yukionna, nekomata and ningyu in Japanese mythology, the author insists in calling them "the snow youkai," "the cat youkai" and "the fish youkai," so as to avoid offending the actual youkai in question.

* Manjyoume from ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' has to constantly correct anyone who doesn't use honorifics when saying his name with "Manjyoume-san da!" (translation: "That's ''Mr.'' Manjyoume to you!"). Unfortunately for him, everyone mistakes this as "Manjyoume sandaa", instead ("sandaa" being the Japanese pronunciation to the English world "thunder"). While he hasn't stopped with the correcting, "Manjyoume Thunder" ''has'' embraced the mistake as part of his personal motto. In the dub, Manjyoume's counterpart Chazz Princeton does the same thing, insisting everyone call him "''The'' [[SpellMyNameWithAThe Chazz]]".

** This happened twice in the dub during Judai's duel with Princess Rose; she was annoyed when Kenzan referred to her Des Frogs as reptiles (frogs are ''amphibians'') and again when he called her D.3.S. Frog a toad. (Frogs are ''not'' toads.)

** [[spoiler:In the Punk Hazard arc, the corrupt Vice-Admiral Vergo demands that Law call him "Vergo-san," a form of respect due to their shared past and Vergo's higher position in Doflamingo's empire, and beats the crap out of him whenever he doesn't. Ironically, the one time Law ''does'' call him "Vergo-san" is when he regains his heart, and before proceeding to cut him in half.]]

* ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'': The name of Future Gadget #8 is "[=PhoneWave=] (name subject to change)", because Okabe really dislikes the name "[=PhoneWave=]" and refuses to acknowledge it as permanent, but at least for the moment doesn't have a better idea. He ''will'' correct anyone who leaves the "name subject to change" off.
