* 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.

* ''Radio/OldHarrysGame'': The demon Scumspawn is a sweet, decent fellow, completely unsuited to the job. In fact, given that even the nominal hero, the Professor, has his BeserkButton moments, Scumspawn is arguably the nicest character in the series.

* One of the sample sci-fi characters in ''TabletopGame/{{Toon}}: The Cartoon RPG'' is The Crusher, the head of security on a space station with thundering footsteps... caused by his comically-oversized boots. He's actually a shrimpy little green man with a meek voice. You don't want to mess with his hulking lackey [[FluffyTheTerrible Percy]], though...

Turns out, the creature in question is just a cute animal, with a [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast scary name]] but completely harmless. Upon further inquiry, you'll learn that it was named by a child, or a {{trickster| archetype}}.
