* The French MP3 series ''Franchise/LeDonjonDeNaheulbeuk'' (''The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk'') never gave the names of its main protagonists, even when it got adapted into comics or novels. Being typical parodies of standard RPG playable characters, they're only identified by their race or class (the Ranger, [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame the Dwarf]], the Elf, the Barbarian...). [[ItIsDehumanizing It actually works quite well]] given the DysfunctionJunction nature of the party, [[ElvesVersusDwarves especially when the Dwarf and the Elf are involved.]]

** The [[HerrDoktor Doktor]] is only known by his German title.



** The most mysterious of the Five Dragons is usually referred to by fans as the "Fifth Dragon," because it hasn't surfaced as a card yet, and its true name still remains a mystery. In series itself, it hasn't been mentioned at all, but did make an appearance in a flashback and in the credits. Because of this, fans often poke fun at it by giving it wacky and unusual nicknames. [[spoiler:It was later revealed to be "Life Stream Dragon," the true form of Lua's "Power Tool Dragon."]]

* ''[[StellaUK Stella]]'': "Daddy," the undertaker, is known as such by everyone in Pontyberry. Similarly, Aunty Brenda introduces herself as "Aunty Brenda"--she even ''runs for the council'' with posters saying "Vote Aunty Brenda."

* Subverted in the WizardsOfWaverlyPlace episode "My Tutor Tutor," which introduces a tutor whose [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep name is Tutor]]. Apparently this is a common practice in the wizarding world, where parents name their children what they hope them to be. This doesn't always work, though, in the case of [[EmbarrassingFirstName Dr. Butcher]].

* ''Film/TheAmericanPresident'' has this as such a driving theme that it's reflected in the title of the movie. Andrew Shepard can't even get his best friend to address him by name when they're shooting pool.
-->'''A.J.:''' Nice shot, Mr. President.
-->'''President Shepherd:''' 'Nice shot, Mr. President?' You won't even call me by my name when we're playing pool?
-->'''A.J.:''' [[Creator/DrSeuss I will not do it playing pool, I will not do it in a school. I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them, Sam I Am.]]
-->'''President Shepherd:''' At ease, A.J., at ease.

Different from OnlyKnownByTheirNickname, in that it is actually describing what they do. If the character initiates it, it's SpellMyNameWithAThe. May be the result of a NamelessNarrative or AFGNCAAP. For parents, see UnnamedParent. Related to TheyCallHimSword. Compare/Contrast RaceNameBasis when race is used for this and the character may or may not have a name and ADogNamedDog.
