* All the Chosen in ''EternalDarkness'' are referred to by their first names by the in-game text except for Edwin Lindsey, which could be chalked up to OneSteveLimit, seeing as there's also an Edward.

* Likewise, the main character of ''{{Freelancer}}'', Edison Trent, insists that people call him by his last name Trent Trent. His final line of the game is actually "Please. Call me Trent."

** Played straight Colorado Senator Steven Armstrong, who is only referred to as "Steven" one time when Kevin explains who he is. Afterwards, everyone just calls him "Armstrong". Strangely enough, his [[spoiler: Boss health meter]] just labels him as "Senator", and the credits list him as "Steven".

* Not exactly a true full name, but it still counts: Solid Snake from the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series is usually addressed as "Snake" and never as "Solid", even when he is mentioned alongside his clone brothers, "Solidus" and "Liquid", who share the "Snake" codename. "Big Shell Evil", one of the "Snake Tales" in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2: Substance'' even lampshades this.

* Chloe Valens of ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' would prefer to call people by their last names.
* Sam Fisher of ''VideoGame/SplinterCell'' is almost always referred to by his last name, especially by his VoiceWithAnInternetConnection, Lambert. That's ''Irving'' Lambert. And then there's Grimsdottir. Pretty much everyone is called by their last name in this series.

** Detectives Ryotaro Dojima and Tohru Adachi in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' are always called their last name by everyone, except for an old woman whose son is also named Tohru. Especially weird is that the protagonist will still call Dojima by his last name, even though Dojima is his (maternal, so they don't share a last name) uncle.

* In ''VideoGame/RedFaction'', Parker is only ever addressed by his last name. It would be harder if he had a first name to begin with.

* Most characters in the ''VideoGame/KaneAndLynch'' games. Lynch is an interesting example in that he seems to prefer being called by his last name by everyone, all the time, even by his girlfriend in the second game.
