* ''[[{{Marvel2099}} X-Men 2099]]'' had some of the best. Skullfire, Bloodhawk, Metalhead, Meanstreak, Junkpile, and Psyclone. Note that those are all members of the actual X-Men[[note]]Though one of them turns traitor almost immediately.[[/note]] - Skullfire in particular is the leader! That said, Skullfire never really used his codename, just going by "Tim" 99% of the time. Apparently even ''he'' knew how 90s that codename it was.

* As seen in the (former) quote up top, [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] pokes fun at this trope with his [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark Age]] fanboy character, [[Characters/AtopTheFourthWall 90's Kid]] and his character, Bloodgun. Though in the later review of ''Darker {{Image}}'' #1 even 90's Kid concedes that Deathblow is stupid name.

* Reaper from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', he picked that name to enforce about the upcoming death he's going to bring to his enemies, but combined with his design, it has a side-effect to instead fuel the fans reasons to call him trying too hard as an 'edgelord'.

* The Norse were not averse to nicknames like this, "Eric Bloodaxe" and "Björn Ironside" being two famous examples. They also cheerfully inverted it at times.

[[note]]This stems from Norse culture valuing cleverness and other non-standard virtues in their heroes - in this case, surviving a night in a den of poisonous snakes by wearing thick, hairy pants, or being so [[ArtfulDodger nimble]] in combat as to appear fluid and untouchable.[[/note]]

* Done by ''[[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Disney Disney Italy]], '''twice''''':
** The first time it happened was in 1969, with the character of Paperinik the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Devilish Avenger]]. Did we mention that this is the superhero/antihero alter ego of ''DonaldDuck''?
** In the nineties ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' gave us a rather subtle example with Xadhoom, meaning "[[EvilDebtCollector Creditor]]" in Xerbian. Doesn't sound much? Well, the Evronians owe her a planet and a race, and she openly admits she plans to [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide collect in full]].

* The ''WildCATS'' in Warblade, Grifter, Maul, Zealot, etc.
** Also poked fun at in ''WildCATS'', when Ladytron asks someone "what's up with this kill-hell-death-blood name thing?" Naturally, the other guy makes fun of the name "Ladytron", and hijinx ensue.

* ''{{Youngblood}}'': Deathshot, Riptide, Badrock, Combat, Psi-Fire, Psylence (sometimes Psilence), Bloodwulf, Diehard, Wylder. Creator/RobLiefeld was one of the big popularizers of this trope, and probably helped everyone get sick of it too.
