* On ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', in the episode "The Big Question," Rocko, Filbert, and Heffer infiltrate Dr. Hutchison's high school reunion, in order to a) stop her from going out with her friend Tiger and b) so Filbert can propose to her. They go by codenames when talking to each other: Filbert is Turtledove (Dr. Hutchison's pet name for him), Heffer is Mr. Beef (because he's a steer), and Rocko is Table Five (because that was his disguise).

** When the Cult of Kira takes over the world, and people start "doxxing" their enemies to Kira, people begin to go by codenames as a matter of course. Even husbands and wives don't know each other's real names, which shows just how much of a CrapsackWorld Kira's NewWorldOrder is, that ''no one'' can trust ''anyone'' else, even members of their own families.

* In ''WearingTheCape'' most superheroes have codenames that are descriptive of their power or just cool-sounding. Atlas gives Hope the temporary codename "Astra", which he says is Latin for ôstar". She keeps it, despite later finding out it's the plural form--"stars".

* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': In its sequel ''Picking Up the Pieces'', the Hidden Guard have these for each of the Bearers. Those used in-story, as of chapter 10, are "Bad Driver" (for Vix-Lei) and "Drunk" (Wind Breaker).

Those used in-story, as of chapter 10, are "Bad Driver" (for Vix-Lei) and "Drunk" (Wind Breaker). The other four are revealed in chapter 15: Grumpy (for Night Blade), The Librarian (Page), Doggy (Rex) and Thief (Xvital). Memorizing Gaze notes that they had to come up with them in a hurry and that they'll probably have to change all of them at some point (except for Page's, since hers is the only one that won't annoy the designee) if they can come up with better ones. He also mentions that one of his Guards suggested "Voofer" for Rex's codename but was overruled due to Memorizing himself thinking it sounded absurd.

* ''Fanfic/TheHeadhunt'' stylizes code words for classified data similarly to ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'': Three all-caps words that, out-of-universe, [[MeaningfulName refer to the contents]]. ICARIAN BRIGHT GEPPETTO is the code word for the files on [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Lore]], and refer obliquely to his and Data's creator Noonien Soong whom Lore murdered: "icarian" is an IcarusAllusion, and "Geppetto" was the toymaker in ''[[Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio Pinocchio]]''.

* ''Literature/OneEightHundredWhereRYou'': In the second book, it's revealed the FBI uses "Cassandra" as a codename for Jess Mastriani due to her psychic abilities (which they're interested in having her use on their behalf). She is not amused, since she just wants them out of her life.
