* On ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw,'' the [[BornUnlucky title character]] goes to a dude ranch with his friends, and his horse, "Psycho," immediately starts to go crazy, leading to this exchange:
-->'''[[OnlySaneMan Zack]]:''' Any chance of him getting a calmer horse?
-->'''Rancher:''' Well, Psycho there is usually our calmest horse. That's why we named him Psycho--for the irony. We crack ourselves up.

* In ''{{Dinotopia}}: Journey to Chandara'', the emperor of Chandara has the imposing name of Hugo Khan. Turns out that he's a ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microraptor Microraptor]]'', which is one of the smallest dinosaurs known. Even the ''name'' of the dinosaur sounds puny.

* The death's-head hawk moth, which has a {{badass}} name not only in English but in Latin as well. ''Acherontia atropos'' (which does geniunely sound omnious if you know your Myth/GreekMythology) has also [[ObviouslyEvil a skull motif on his back]]. But yet it's a ''butterfly'', and it can't even hurt anything. Despite its RealLife reputation as a harbinger of death and evil. All that it does which is harmful that is ''[[PokeThePoodle raiding beehives for honey]]''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efyufhtO7VU And it sounds like a squeaky toy.]]

* The Bandersnatch from the 2010 ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' movie turns out to be this, only to people and things it likes. To everything else, it's FluffyTheTerrible.

* In ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', Gundam Tanaka has a group of hamsters he named "The Four Dark Gods of Destruction". [[spoiler:Of course, they're not ''completely'' harmless, as one of his hamsters makes him possible to kill Nekomaru Nidai by sneaking and pressing a button to shut Nidai off, until he ties Nidai up in a place where a struggle will get him killed.]]

* In the ''Literature/{{Chalion}}'' verse, the Viking-esque prince Jokol "Skullsplitter", who it turns out was given that appellation due to his talent at poetry: he makes "heads burst with his tales". (''[[PsychicPowers Not]]'' [[YourHeadAsplode literally]].)

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games have a faction known as the Followers of The Apocalypse. With a name like that, you'd expect them to be really evil or at least really metal. Instead, they're probably the setting's most altruistic and harmless factions, being essentially the post-apocalyptic Red Cross. The name stands for the fact that they seek knowledge of the Old World so that mistakes like the Great War can never be repeated again. Of course, one of their former members happens to be the founder of [[TheHorde Caesar's Legion]], though he's considered the BlackSheep of the faction.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'''s nickname function lets you have this, {{Fluff|y The Terrible}}ies, and Deathbringers that grow into their name when they evolve.
** There is also Gorebyss, which immediately bring to mind "an abyss of gore," [[http://s181.photobucket.com/albums/x314/Sythja/pokemon%20vault/?action=view¤t=Gorebyss.gif&newest=1 unless you know what it looks like]]. In all fairness though, it is "gorgeous," and does live in an "abyss", as in "the bottom of the sea". However, that's just a facade. It's actually very aggressive and hunts by Mind Raping its prey, shoving its extremely sharp mouth into their unconscious bodies, and sucking their fluids out. Yes it's beautiful, but the name fits.
