** Bob, a co-worker of Chandler, constantly misnames him for "Toby". Chandler never corrects him, because he's afraid of how awkward it would be.

But, when Bob finds out some "Chandler Bing" blocked his promotion, [[MistakenIdentity he ventilates it to "Toby"]], putting him in an even more difficult situation. HilarityEnsues at the end, when [[spoiler: Bob destroys Chandler's office... and Chandler joins him when asked to help with it]].

* Similar to Vita [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs in canon]], Susanoo will ''never'' get Nanoha's name right in ''Fanfic/{{Infinity}}''. He seems to have the general ''sound'' of it down, but tends to usually end up with something like 'Nanako', even when others directly point out to him he's got her name wrong.

** The ''Ego Trip'' special plays with this trope and references the above episode. Dexter meets three older versions of himself. The oldest version is quite forgetful, but while he remembers the other two's names, he keeps calling his young adult counterpart "Billy."

* In ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'', Katsura is constantly referred to as Zura (Which can mean "wig") by Gintoki and others, which almost always prompts him to say [[{{Catchphrase}} "It's not Zura, it's Katsura"]]. He's so used to being called by the name he'll sometimes say the phrase even if those in the vicinity aren't actually talking about him.

* When Seiya from ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' finds a stray puppy he can tell by his tag what the name essentially reads. However he reads it as "Heebu" instead of "Herb". Even after being corrected he still calls Herb "Heebu", which annoys Herb's eventual owner Ririka.



* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': This happens to Butch a lot in both the English and Japanese versions of the anime. He's been called Botch, Biff, Hutch, Bob, Butcher, and many others. In the original Japanese, his name is Kosaburo, but he always gets called Kosanji. Seems to happen so often that he immediately replies "It's Butch!" when spoken to. In an episode of the spinoff ''Pokémon Chronicles'', Butch is actually called the correct name for a change, and he replies with "It's Bu-Oh, wait, that's what you said!" Another time, he called himself by the wrong name when attempting to correct someone when they got it right.
