* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', Cartman becomes the superhero The Coon. When he is later joined by other superheroes he names their SuperTeam ''Coon and Friends''. When he later gets expelled from the team they keep the name, simply to annoy him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Parodied when Steven makes a band called "Steven and the Stevens". The rest of the band are all versions of him as well. Played straight later in the same episode where the rest of the gems replace the other Steven's, causing the bands name to change to "Steven and the Crystal Gems".

** Archie named his rock 'n' roll group "The Archies". Reggie suggested re-naming the group "the Reggies". And Veronica, whose ego can sometimes match Reggie's, also nominated her own name once.

* Maybe Music/MarilynManson.
** Similar to the Music/AliceCooper example in that the name refers to both the group and the stage name of the lead vocalist. The band was originally called Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids.

* ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' gives us Team Sonic and Team Rose. Averted by Team Dark and Team Chaotix. At the end of the game, for the sake of a TitleDrop Sonic refers to them collectively as "Sonic Heroes!" You'd think he might've asked first if the others were okay with that...

* The titular band from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}} And The Holograms'' stands out compared to The Stingers and The Misfits. Jem is the lead singer and undeniable FaceOfTheBand who is a celebrity in her own right. No one thinks it's cocky or awkward in-series, though the IDW comics have Rio disapprove of the name (and Jem).

* Referenced in ''Series/{{Icarly}}''. The [[ShowWithinAShow: in-universe webshow]] is named iCarly despite Sam having equal screen time and Freddie's contributions being just as invaluable as either of theirs. In one episode, a rival who wanted to start her own webshow mentioned this as a tactic to try and get Sam to abandon iCarly and do a show with her. Though Sam brushes it off this time, she later brings it up during a fight with Carly in a later episode. Subverted, however, in that it was actually Freddie who thought of the name.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', unless you go with the "Mario Mario and Luigi Mario" explanation (which isn't canon according to WordOfGod). Lampshaded in ''[[VideoGame/SuperMario64 Super Mario 64 DS]]'' in that if you were to talk to one of the Toads as Luigi, said Toad praises him and wonders if he should call him and Mario "Luigi Brothers" from now onwards.
