* Funky Boy is a "[[WeaponOfMassDestruction bio weapon]]" from ''Anime/{{Redline}}''. In other words, it's a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shape-shifting]] [[BodyHorror blob]] of yellow matter [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever the size of an aircraft carrier]], which can [[CurbStompBattle wipe out an entire army in one shot]] and [[spoiler:survive a blast from a {{kill sat}}]], all while [[EldritchAbomination still in it's infant stage]].

** One of the first tanks imported in volume from the USA was initially called "The Honey" because it was a delight to drive and maintain. British generals fretted that having two main battle tanks with names like ''Valentine'' and ''Honey'' suggested the men weren't getting the idea about it being a war. [[note]]After some thought, the British generals initiated a system where American tanks were named after cavalry genewral of the American Civil War (if they were the smaller faster light tanks) or infantry generals (if they were the heavier infantry tanks). Thus the Honey became the ''General Stuart'', closely followed by the Lee, Grant and Sherman. This naming principle so impressed American authorities that it initiated the naming ssytem for American tanks that persists today. [[/note]]

** The titular character's magic staff is named "Raising Heart." Kinda tame and cute sounding compared to the other magical devices in the show, like [[BladeOnAStick Bardiche]] or [[DropTheHammer Graf Eisen,]] Said staff is also capable of raining [[BeamSpam pink beams of doom]] and [[WaveMotionGun a beam that could level cities.]]

** And before gunpowder, siege engines got the same sort of treatment. During the [[TheCrusades siege of Acre]], King Phillip II of France famously nicknamed one of his two trebuchets "Bad Neighbor". (The other one was "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast God's Own Sling]]"; the opposing Muslim army had its counterpart, "Bad Kinsman").

To understand the significance of this trope, be aware the "Bouncing Betty" is a buried land mine with a double charge. When it was stepped on, it had a small charge that detonated, launching it to waist height, whereupon the second charge would explode, at a minimum [[GroinAttack destroying the soldier's penis and testicles]].
