** Members of the Saint Church call Vivio "Majesty" since she's [[CloneJesus a clone of]] [[CrystalDragonJesus the Sankt Kaiser]] despite her constantly reminding them not to. By the time of [[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid ViVid]] she's not bothered by it.

** Played with (like everything else), with King Verence II and Queen Magrat. Verence had been a member of the Guild of Fools and Joculators, which is firmly established as the bottom of the social ladder, and Magrat is simply "a bit wet", and most of the country (which is tiny) has known her all her life. They both hate being deferred to this way, Magrat because she feels like marrying someone she loves should have nothing to do with how people she's known forever treat her, and Verence because he feels it's inexpedient and has even gone so far as to set up a parliament. The people they rule, however, are a bit old-fashioned, and don't hold with Verence's style of ruling, since what is the point if they have to rule themselves? After all, it's "got to be done proper."

* Lieutenant Filicia Heideman of ''SoraNoWoto'' runs her small military unit as if it were a family and she were the mother. Adressing each other by ranks isn't necessary.

* ''Series/ThePalace'' is all about a fictional BritishRoyalFamily, and the main characters are all comfortable being called by their titles. However, this trope is briefly PlayedForDrama in the first episode, shortly after King James's sudden death. His eldest son, Richard, enters a room where his immediate family is gathered, and his mother and sisters begin to curtsy and greet him with "Your Majesty." The new king immediately stops them, disturbed.

* After becoming Prime Minister of the UK following a landslide election victory in 1997, Tony Blair memorably opened his first Cabinet meeting with the words "Just call me Tony", doing away with centuries of tradition that Cabinet members - including the Prime Minister - should always be addressed by their job titles and never their names. His successor Gordon Brown continued this policy, but under David Cameron, use of traditional titles has returned.

* Used by Touka in a ''{{Manga/Saki}}'' side chapter, when Hajime, one of her teammates and a maid at her house, refers to her and her cousin Koromo as "Touka-[[JapaneseHonorifics sama]] and Koromo-sama," Touka reminds her that formal speech is not allowed when her father is not present, prompting Hajime to reply, "I'm sorry, Touka".

* In the omake for the ''{{Manga/Saki}}'' doujin, ''[[http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/neutral_position#32 Neutral Position]]'' '''(Doujin is not safe for work, although the omake is)''', Mairu Shirouzu tries to get her best friend Himeko Tsuruta (who calls her by her position as ClubPresident) to call her something less formal. Himeko tries "[[LastNameBasis Shirouzu]]-[[SenpaiKohai senpai]]", which Mairu says is "too stiff," and then "[[FirstNameBasis Mairu]]-[[JapaneseHonorifics san]]", prompting Mairu to say "don't use -san". Himeko then blushes and stammers before saying Mairu's first name without honorifics, which Mairu finds cute.
