* The [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ComicBook/MEGAMAN Mega Man comic]] from ArchieComics provides a caption describing whatever power and weapon the titular character is using. This is especially key in [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ComicBook/SonictheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide the ''Worlds Collide'']] crossover with ''SonicTheHedgehog'' in which Rock takes on the powers of eight different Sonic cast members over the course of one issue.

** Averted to great effect right at the end of ''Ocarina of Time'' when the final boss rears up in front of you and the bold letters plainly and simply state "'''GANON'''", as if the game itself were incapable of describing the horrendous monster in front of you as anything else. Following games do the same thing with their final bosses. They did it again in ''Skyward Sword'', except several times. The Imprisoned is only known as such, [[spoiler:and when you fight its true form, it is only listed as '''''DEMISE''''', which [[FridgeBrilliance takes on an even deeper meaning]] when it's revealed that Ganondorf (and by extension, Ganon) is the embodiment of Demise's curse on Link and Zelda]].

* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Tasio the Trickster invokes this in ''Literature/LoomingShadow''. After warning Eric that the final boss of a dungeon ''always'' has more than two forms, the EvilSorcerer that Eric just defeated returns for round two. At that point, Tasio [[Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime plays a brief tune on an ocarina and says]]: "The Crimson Killer: Kierdos!"

* Every boss in SpaceChem is preceded with one of these, which is convenient because there's no other way you'd know [[EldritchAbomination what you were fighting.]]

** Every time a new type of enemy appears in the game, it's accompanied with a short cut scene and a PastelChalkedFreezeFrame that gives the name and class of the enemy. The enemy's name is then displayed over a picture of their halo (with stronger and more powerful angels having more elaborate halos), and the freeze frame zooms out to reveal their image within "The Hierarchy of Laguna", before the book flies away and the scene cuts back to the action. This is also used to remind the player to put on an appropriate OhCrap face when [[spoiler: '''Umbra Witch: Jeanne''' finally appears after fighting her at least three times prior, and '''[[PhysicalGod Dea:]] Jubileus''']]
