* ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' sometimes debuts new characters by freeze-framing them and putting their name on the screen (if like {{Wolverine}} or Comicbook/DoctorStrange you've got your own comic, it'll be your actual logo.) These are part of Peter's many {{Imagine Spot}}s.

* ''WesternAnimation/HulkAndTheAgentsOfSmash'': Just about everyone important. Note that these are part of the ShowWithinAShow web series, with A-Bomb actually editing them in.

* ''Colin [=McRae=]: DiRT 2'' uses a variation of this as its 'One To Watch' feature: Immediately before each individual race, the game shows you the name and vehicle of whichever participating racer the game has chosen as most likely to win, making him/her your primary challenger for the rest of the race. There's even a chance that the game can pick ''you'' as the One To Watch, letting you know just how much of a speed demon you are.

** Every 3D ''Zelda'' game except ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'' has used them. Sometimes, a common adjective appears in each of the standard bosses' descriptions. In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'', it is "Masked". In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' it is "Twilit". ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass'' mixes things up by putting the titles ''after'' the boss's name (eg., "Blaaz, Master of Fire"), which is continued in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks''.

* ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'', too, since it's [[FollowTheLeader inspired by]] the ''Zelda'' series.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonRumble'' has a basic one for its bosses (class, then the name). The Battle Royales give a hint of what Pokemon it is beforehand with a sihouette, almost meaningless stats (as you progress in the game they'll always be [[OlympusMons Legendaries]]), and the typing.

** The PC88 version of ''Valis'' said "Be carefull (sic)! (Boss's name) is coming," followed by a line of proverbial advice.

* ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}} and the Pirate's Curse'' does this with all of its bosses, often using silly titles with AddedAlliterativeAppeal such as "Frighteningly Fixated Flora" and "[[LegacyBossBattle Reocurring Rascal]]". This retuned in "Half-Genie Hero" with titles like "Tinkerslug (Don't Call It [[FunWithAcronyms Poop Toot]]!)" or "Giga Mermaid (Captivating Captive)".

* The Spanish webcomic ''Webcomic/CincoElementos'' does this with every "boss" of each arc story, as a reference to Zelda, of which the author has said he is a fan.

* ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' has gotten into the act. Random unique enemies will have a title under their health bar in place of attributes like most special enemies. For example, in Act II you can run into "High Cultist Murdos, Cruel and Powerful Cult Acolyte" or "Ashek, Diminutive Fallen Fighter". As a reference to ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', there's "Nightmarity, Generosity In Death" and "Midnight Sparkle, Nightmare Is Magic".
