* One of the {{Running Gag}}s on ''TheSecretShow'' is that the boss of the heroes has always a different codename and it's always something embarrassing.

* Zack and Cody of ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' use code names when pulling off some of their more elaborate pranks. Usually Zack picks the code names and gives Cody an embarrassing one and himself a flattering one, such as "Better Looking Twin."

** There's also Sanji's Mr Prince.
** In the Marines, anyone promoted to the rank of Admiral is given a code name consisting of a color and an animal, with the animals all being references to [[Literature/{{Momotaro}} the tale of Momotaro]]. At the start of the manga, the three Admirals are Kizaru ("Yellow Monkey", real name Borsalino), Aokiji ("Blue Pheasant", real name Kuzan) and Akainu ("Red Dog", real name Sakazuki). Fujitora ("Wisteria Tiger", real name Issho) and Ryokugyu ("Green Bull", real name unknown) are added later.
* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', most members of Celestial Being have codenames. For example, Setsuna F. Seiei's real name is [[spoiler:Soran Ebrahim]]

** President Barack Obama's secret service codename is "Renegade". A few nut-jobs claim that the word is from the Spanish ''renegado'': one who has renounced Christianity! At least with the Obama family, all the members of the First Family have codenames that start with the same letter (Michelle's is "Renaissance"). The same held true for the Clintons - some of whom are still under Secret Service protection - [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton Bill]] was "Eagle", [[UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton Hillary]] was "Evergreen" and Chelsea was "Energy". George W. Bush's is "Trailblazer". Eleanor Roosevelt's codename was "Rover", while Cheney was "Angler".

Military ranks, noble titles and other honorifics are occasionally incorporated into a [=Codename=], as is the case in CaptainAmerica and ComicBook/DoctorFate. Closely related to NomDeGuerre, which would be when they use the name all the time, and not just "out in public". ReportingNames are essentially Code Names for enemy equipment, especially when the real name is unknown or impossible to pronounce in your own language.

* ''Webcomic/CodeNameHunter'': it's right there in the title! All of the field agents have a codename. If a field agent dies in the line of duty or goes missing, their codename is retired.
