* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia,'' the first time that [[GravityMaster Ochako]] addresses [[EmpoweredBadassNormal Izuku]] by name, she calls him "Deku," the insulting nickname that [[TheBully Bakugou]] had used for him earlier--an AlternateCharacterReading of his name that means "weakling." He corrects her, but when she notes that she likes the name, which can also be read "[[TheDeterminator never gives up]]," he instantly begins to see it as an AffectionateNickname [[spoiler:and adopts it as his superhero name]].

* One of the main {{Running Gag}}s in ''WebAnimation/SoThisIsBasically'' is that Jello, the narrator, consistently gets the names of every single character from all the different featured shows wrong. Highlights includes naming Bill Cipher, the BigBad EldritchAbomination from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', "Razzle-Dazzle Dorito" and Reaper, one of the principal {{Big Bad}}s from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', "Little Timmy's First [[OriginalCharacter OC]]".

* ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'': Initially, [[TheBrute Marak]] mishears [[TheFundamentalist Noelle]] when she mentions the name of her god, R'hllor. In the following, he calls the god "rollmop", much to her annoyance. He eventually seems to catch up on the real pronounciation, [[TheGadfly but continues to misname it on purpose, to annoy her even further]].

* In the ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' DLC Old World Blues, Dr. 0 (Zero) is commonly referred to as O (the letter). By the time you meet him, he's still annoyed by it but doesn't care to correct it. You can either convince him to take pride in his name Zero by noting that it reduces all numbers multiplied to it to zero or have him accept O as meaning the "Oh!" of scientific discovery.

* In the ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' DLC Old World Blues, Dr. 0 (Zero) is commonly referred to by the other scientists as O "O" (the letter). By the time you meet him, he's still annoyed by it but doesn't care to correct it. You can either suggest that he put a slash through the zero in order to alleviate the confusion. However, coming up with this solution requires at least ''9 Intelligence'' (the maximum is 10), and all of the scientists will marvel at your astounding genius. You can also convince him to take pride in accept "O" as his name Zero by noting that it reduces all numbers multiplied to likening it to zero or have him accept O as meaning the "Oh!" of scientific discovery.
