* Mike Chang from ''Series/{{Glee}}'', despite actually having a name, is known both in-universe and out almost exclusively as "Other Asian." Not anymore. Since he and Tina got together in the second season, he's been given more screen time and more character development.
* For the longest time in ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', Noah Bennet's mysterious associate was known simply as "The Haitian." Claire later reveals that his real name is [[spoiler:René]]. Earlier, Bennet himself was only known among the fans as HRG, which stands for "Horned-Rim Glasses", his signature eyewear. His first name wasn't revealed until much later.

* In ''Series/YesMinister'', the Prime Minister is only referred to by his title. Extraordinarily, this is kept up when Hacker gets promoted into ''Series/YesPrimeMinister'': he only gets referred to as "His/Your/My Predecessor."

* The {{Space Pirate}}s in the ''{{Metroid}}'' series refer to the heroine as The Hunter. When her EvilTwin shows up, they logically name it The Dark Hunter. The benevolent characters use her real name, though. The Chozo, who [[HappilyAdopted raised her]], sometimes refer to Samus as Hatchling or Newborn.
