** Ditto for the Avatar in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. He or she can be named whatever you want, but the default name is Kamui for Japan and Corrin for the West. Marketing and supplementary material (such as the comics and Cipher card game) seem to ''slightly'' favor the male[[note]]he appears in more comics than the female, and he was primarily the one shown when advertising the game[[/note]], but they make sure to feature the female too, and both are always referred to by their default name of Corrin.

** It is worth noting that in the most popular manga adaptation, ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', the 'game name' method was retained. For example, the manga counterparts of the aforementioned Brendan and May are Ruby and Sapphire, Lucas, Barry, and Dawn are Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Hilbert and Hilda are Black and White and Calem and Serena are X and Y[[note]]even though that clashes with the names of Trevor, Tierno and Shauna due to the AerithAndBob trope[[/note]]. The adaption to ''VideoGames/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' plays with this naming convention by naming Rosa and Nate "Whi-Too" and "Lack-Two", respectively[[note]]although the latter does have "Black 2" as his codename due to being an international police officer like Looker within the continuity of the manga[[/note]].
