*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Princess (and later, Queen), Kasile is a restricted case. She doesn't like it when her confidant uses titles (Eric usually does it to tease her) and is trying ''really'' hard to get her boyfriend to stop it. By the time of ''Literature/ManaMutationMenace'', she's convinced him to drop from "Your Majesty" to "Lady Kasile".

* Sandor Clegane of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' doesn't like being called "ser". Unlike many examples, it's actually incorrect, as he is not a knight (though many assume he is, what with being the personal bodyguard of the Crown Prince). Beyond that, Sandor doesn't think much of knights -- after all, his [[CainAndAbel brother]] is one.

** Brienne doesn't like being reminded she's a highborn lady. She claims, "Brienne is enough," and even prefers to bow rather than curtsy.
** Arya doesn't like being called "milady" and even shoves Gendry to the ground when he teases her about it.

* Arises between Bunter and LordPeterWimsey in Jill Paton Walsh's ''The Attenbury Emeralds''. After [[spoiler: Lord Peter's elder brother the Duke of Denver dies without surviving issue]], Bunter uses Wimsey's newly-inherited form of address, and Wimsey tries to get him to use his first name, at least in connection with their investigation work. [[OldRetainer Bunter settles for returning to "My Lord"/"Your Lordship"]], which he'd been using for years. Despite Wimsey's and Harriet's efforts to the contrary, Bunter generally tries to resist the more egalitarian spirit of post-WWII Britain, even discouraging his son Peter Bunter ("PB") from seeing himself the equal of his schoolmate Bredon Wimsey.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal, [[TheApartheidEra Rimwards Howondalandian]] Assassin Johanna Smith-Rhodes becomes more uneasy about being called ''baas-lady'' by Black Howondalandian servants trained to subservience. The same applies to [[UsefulNotes/{{India}} Ghatian]] people who call her ''mem-saab''. This leads to a ShoutOut involving herself and a Howondalandian maid wished on her by her apartheid-believing aunt.
