* In the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series, a character by the name of Nash [[DubNameChange had his name changed to Charlie when localized from Japanese]]. It wasn't until ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' when both names were canonically made into the full name of Charlie Nash. In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', although he's still referred to as Charlie on occasion, the Japanese and International versions of the game mainly call him Nash, invoking this trope.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', [[DefrostingIceQueen Mitsuru Kirijo]] refers to most of the SEES team by their last names. The only exception in the beginning is Akihiko, a fellow senior which whom she has quite the history. She'll call the male protagonist by his given name if he romances her, and she starts calling Yukari Takeba by her first name as well (like in The Answer), after some quality bonding.
** Detectives Ryotaro Dojima and Tohru Adachi in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' are always called their last name by everyone. 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.
