To everyone else, he's simply "Wesker."" Also, also his sole surviving sibling named "Alex Wesker" is mainly referred to by the Alias "The Overseer" in her sole game so far, Resident Evil Revelations 2, as the main antagonist. However it is worth mentioning that later on, Barry starts addressing her as "She-Wesker" since his first confrontation.

* Both played straight and averted in the {{Gears of War}} game series. Averted with the two main characters, Marcus Fenix and Dominic "Dom" Santiago, who are almost exclusively called by their first names. Played straight with Damon Baird and Augustus "The Cole Train" Cole, who are almost exclusively called by the last names, or in Cole's case, his Thrashball nickname.

* InazumaEleven: In Japan, unless you're a girl or the heroes' relatives, expected yourself to be called by your last name. Even the protagonists are not immune to this.

* Masami von Weizegger, hero of ''RingOfRed'', identifies more with his German heritage than with [[ButNotTooForeign his Japanese heritage]], so he insists that others call him "Weizegger" instead of "Masami".

* At the beginning of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', Riki is on a LastNameBasis with Komari, Haruka, and Kurugaya. He starts calling Komari by her first name after she does so for him after she joins the baseball team and Haruka explicitly asks him to use her first name part-way through, but Kurugaya, who cultivates an image of a beautiful, [[TheAce competent]] CoolBigSis, is ''very'' insistent that everyone call her 'Kurugaya' or [[JapaneseSiblingTerminology 'Anego']] - anything but by her cute first name [[EmbarrassingFirstName 'Yuiko']].

Added DiffLines:

* Both Spider-Men do this in ''VideoGame/SpiderManEdgeOfTime'', referring to each other as [[Franchise/SpiderMan Parker]] and [[ComicBook/SpiderMan2099 O'Hara]], and arguing throughout. When they ''[[SubvertedTrope stop]]'' doing this halfway through the game, it's because they've become FireForgedFriends, which the BigBad takes the time to lampshade.
--> [[spoiler: Future!Peter]]: Ahahaha, I see you and your counterpart have taken to calling eachother by your first names. It's good to know you've...bonded.
