* Swoop in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' is never actually named in-series or even in the credits [[TheVoiceless because he didn't speak,]] though his name is fairly obvious given the [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 resemblance]], [[MerchandiseDriven toys]], and press releases. The only proof that this was his name in-universe was [[AllThereInTheManual The AllSpark Almanac]] which said Blackarachnia gave him that name.

* In several of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' movies, there are characters who go unnamed outside of the script. For example in Mewtwo Strikes Back, the other trainers who made it to Mewtwo's Island (Corey, Neesha, and Fergus) are never named at all within the film itself, same goes for the trainers (Kai, Maury, and Allegra) at the start of the [[LongRunners tenth movie]], The Rise of Darkrai. The MAIN VILLAIN of the second film, The Power of One, is never named in the film itself. (Supplemental materials call him "Lawrence III", but the DVD's closed captioning calls him "Gelardan", a romanisation of his Japanese name.)

** On the other hand, this is frequently {{Jossed}} in other materials. The DVD closed captions say Rupert (one of the fake names he uses to stay anonymous at support groups), the [[Literature/FightClub source material]] says "I am '''Joe'''[='=]s..." instead, and [[Creator/ChuckPalahniuk Chuck]] [[WordOfGod Palahniuk]] has announced [[spoiler:he will be called "Cornelius" (another support group name) in the sequel.

* If you're new to ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy'', the constant references to "Sam Crow" can be a bit confusing, since the titular biker gang is called by that name more often than it's called "The Sons of Anarchy". You have to read the supplemental info for the show (or turn the captions on) to know that "Sam Crow" is actually "SAMCRO", an acronym for "'''S'''ons of '''A'''narchy '''M'''otorcycle '''C'''lub, '''R'''edwood '''O'''riginal".

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Pixies}}'' only has Michelle refer to her manager twice as merely "Barbara". The end credits reveal her surname is Brandford.
** the end credits refer to an Ethel, a name never spoken in the film. It is unclear if this might refer to the old Jewish human or the Pixie nurse who cares for William, both of whom speak yet appear to lack a credit identifying them. Given she appears after "Elderly Man", probably the human.

A specific type of AllThereInTheManual wherein the name of a character, perhaps an important one, is never actually mentioned in the production proper, appearing only in the credits, script, or related materials. Sometimes intentional, but often the result of {{Expospeak}} cut for time. When a production is operating off scripts with the character's name in front of all their dialogue, it's possible the writers neglect to have it used aloud.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** Coldstone is a cyborg gargoyle made from the parts (and souls) of three gargoyles. The three gargoyles are never named in the episodes in which they appear, but in the credits, they are referred to as [[ThemeNaming Iago, Othello, and Desdemona.]]
** It should be noted that the Scottish Gargoyle Clan did ''not'' use personal names until the present, so those were effectively nameless characters in-story. (Also, they are an obvious Theatre/{{Othello}} reference.) They DID, however, eventually get names... "Othello" was eventually uniquely Coldstone, while Desdemona and Iago got their own robotic bodies and became Coldfire and Coldsteel respectively.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', the main antagonist Cinder Fall's name has only been spoken once, during Volume 2. In Volumes 1 and 3, her name can only be found in the credits of the chapters she appears in. This is largely because she operates in the shadows and the protagonists don't actually know who she is.
