* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' with Jeremy. In the episode ''The Baljeatles'', Jeremy suddenly becomes TheNicknamer and nicknames everybody ''except'' Candace. When she finally stops trying to make him nickname her and confronts him about it, he says "I call you Candace, but not because I don't care enough to come up with a cute nickname for you. I call you Candace because I happen to really like that name." [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Aww...]]

** In one episode of season eight, Sam calls Kevin "Special K", despite nicknaming usually being Dean's domain. [[spoiler:Crowley knows this and immediately tells "Sam" to stop it, as he doesn't want Kevin to realize that he's actually a prisoner and that Sam and Dean are merely glamoured demons. Kevin eventually figures out it anyway, because the demon versions of Sam and Dean are [[GoodIsNotNice too polite and helpful]].]]
