* Although he had always had it since his first appearance in the games, ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' portrays Miles "Tails" Prower as "hating" his real name. In the episode in question, "Tails' New Home", not only does Sonic threaten to reveal that to everyone if he didn't bail, it also caused Sonic to realize he had been duped by Robotnik. [[note]] Sonic had thought they found Tails' missing parents and returned Tails to them. As he's remininsing, he realizes they called him "Tails", not "Miles".[[/note]]

* Jube Stump in the ''{{Redwall}}'' installment ''Mattimeo''; "Glad you like it. I don't." It's short for Jubilation, his father's response when Jube was born after they already had ten girls. The previous book has Brother Alf becoming Abbot and having to reveal that his full name is Mordalfus.

** You know a guy hates his name when he prefers being known as ''Captain Underpants''...
*** Mr. Krupp is a HypnoFool. He doesn't know he's a superhero and vice versa.
