* ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'': Malcolm is the middle child at home (even though, for the first three seasons, he's actually the third of ''four'' children) - but is also caught between his family and the Krelboynes, not fitting well into either environment.

* OrsonScottCard's ''Children of the Mind'' in the [[EndersGame Enderverse]]. Ender joins the Catholic religious order known as the Filhos da Mente de Cristo in Portuguese -- in English, it's the Children of the Mind of Christ. But two of the other main characters in that book, Peter and Val Wiggin, [[ItMakesSenseInContext were accidentally created from Ender's memories when he went outside the universe]] -- they're the Children of the Mind of Ender.

* In ''Film/AlienVsPredator'', the title refers both to the [[Franchise/{{Alien}} respective]] [[Franchise/{{Predator}} franchises]] of the two creatures engaged in a MonsterMash, and to the new backstories established for both of them. In this version, the Predators are portrayed as [[AncientAstronauts an advanced extraterrestrial civilization that guided the development of early humans]] (i.e. "aliens"), while the Aliens, rather than being extraterrestrials, are genetically engineered beasts programmed to hunt on instinct (i.e. "predators").

Added DiffLines:

* "Arm Candy", part of the ''Fanfic/SorrowfulAndImmaculateHearts'' series, is about Bruce Wayne's relationships with the young women who hang off his arms at parties (which turn out to be, both the relationships and the women, less shallow than many people assume). The title also refers to [[spoiler:a scene in which Bruce learns that one of the young women, who grew up with abusive parents, draws decorations on her arms as an alternative to self-harming]].

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': The ''Conviction Arc'' (断罪篇 or ''Danzai hen''} is a StoryArc named after the Tower of Conviction in St. Albion, which is a place where sinners are punished. Throughout this Arc, Guts comes into conflict with KnightTemplar antagonists including the Holy Iron Chain Knights and Bishop Mozgus who are on a crusade to stamp out witchcraft and heresy, so that the title refers to how they "convict" and punish anyone who disagrees with their religion. Translating ''danzai'' as "conviction" gives it a second meaning in English, since a "conviction" is also a strongly held belief such as one's religion or being sure that one's cause is just, which is a major theme of the arc for Guts as well as his antagonists, and especially for Farnese.

* ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' refers to the general theme of the game about how showing virtue is neither good or bad. It means both "virtue leads to your dead", as in the phrase "he was lead to his last reward", but also can be interpreted as "virtue will give you a last reward", as in if you're virtues you will succeed. This double meaning title was made for the English version to replicate the double meaning of the Japanese title, Zennin Shibō Desu. Although it's literal translation is "Good People Die", it can also be alternatively read to mean something along the lines of "I want to be a good person."
