* Parodied in ''WebOriginal/AcquisitionsIncorporated'', when Mike (aka Gabe of ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'') names his mage character Jim Darkmagic.

* When WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick tried to cast a spell on [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Dark Nella]] (herself an example of this trope) she sought the advice of a random {{Goth}} chick named Grayvyn, who described herself as "halfway between EdgarAllanPoe...and the ''grave.''"

* Half the characters from ''AnitaBlakeVampireHunter''. Names include Requiem, Belle Morte, Jean Claude, Morte d'Amore, Marmee Noir, Valentina, Narcissus, Pride, Envy, Morvoren, Augustine, Wicked, Truth, Bacchus and Byron. Granted a lot of these characters are actual vampires and were-animals, but most of them weren't actually ''born'' with these names.

* Bella Morte from ''JasonXPlanetOfTheBeast''. It's just a nickname though, her real last name is Morrison.

* While it isn't immediately obvious since it's in another language, Morrolan from the ''{{Dragaera}}'' books has a name meaning "Black Star." For bonus points, he made it a theme; his home is called Castle Black and his EmpathicWeapon is named Blackwand.
** Speaking of Great Weapons, this is parodied in ''Dzur'' with the sword Nightslayer. Her actual name translates to a bunch of confusing MagiBabble, so her owner just renamed her to something he thought [[RuleOfCool sounded cool]].
