* ''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]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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).


Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* Millium Orion from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' is first introduced as "White Rabbit" when reporting about her mission. In fact, every known member of Intelligence Division has a code name; Millium, Lechter Arundel -- Scarecrow, Claire Rieveldt -- Icy Maiden, [[spoiler:Rufus Albarea]] -- Jade Rook and [[spoiler:Altina Orion -- Black Rabbit]]. The game doesn't use their code name much after their identity is revealed, however.

** Grace originally didn't have a real name, but went by the code name 'Shade Tail'. 'Grace' was the name her Dr Sciuridae gave her, [[spoiler:after the [[ReplacementGoldfish dead daughter]] who had been her gene-parent]].

* ''FushigiYuugi'' subverts, averts and plays the trope straight. Each Seishi is alternatively known by the [[StellarName constellation]] he or she is born under, and in some cases (particularly the Suzaku Seven), the Seishi's name fits his or her personality and powers precisely. However, the Seishi's code names can hardly be used to disguise them, seeing as all of them either know how to read kanji, have studied astronomy or both. In fact, their real names are hardly spoken among one another, and some of them go by their code names for most of their lives.
