** Ever since becoming President of the United States in Season 20, Mr. Garrison has always been called "the President" or "Mr. President", but never by his actual name. In fact, the last time anyone actually called him Mr. Garrison was in "Not Funny". This is part of an attempt to prevent ContinuityLockout for newcomers, as Mr. Garrison is acting as a stand-in for UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump (a name he's obviously never been called even before he became President).

* Sometimes, a character in Japanese media takes the name "Nanashi," which literally translates to "no name". The most prominent of these Nanashi's is from ''Manga/MarchenAwakensRomance'', who apparently came from another world with NameAmnesia and adopted "Nanashi" for himself. ''Anime/ElCazadorDeLaBruja'' has main character Nadie, the Spanish version of "no name".

* DownplayedExample in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'': Konoe A. Mercury's real name is known, but only to a small number of people and most of them don't use it. Her preferred name, and to most of the cast the only one they know, is 'Nine' of the Ten Sages.

* The French MP3 series ''AudioPlay/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.]]

** This also holds true to the tailed beasts. Everyone refers to them by the number of their tails (Ex: Naruto's tailed beast is the Kyuubi/Nine-Tails); the sole exception to this is Gaara's tailed beast, introduced as Shukaku. Much later, it turns out that [[spoiler: all tailed beasts have names; the only one that still adheres to this trope is the Juubi/Ten-Tails.]]
* [[ChildProdigy The Professor]] in ''Anime/{{Nichijou}}'' is only ever referred to as "The Professor." Her family name seems to be Shinonome, but her given name has never been revealed.

* ''Fanfic/FairyWithoutWings'' introduces [[BlackKnight Dark Blade]] as part of the Edolas arc. The character in question picked the nickname because [[ThatManIsDead the person they are inside is long since dead]]. Even people who know Dark Blade personally, like Erza Knightwalker, refer to the Knight of Seven by this nickname [[spoiler:except when the armor comes off it would seem]].

** For that matter, the Doctor. As well as several other Time Lords like the Master, the Rani, the War Chief, and the Monk. Most known Time Lords do have names. {{Fanon}} has that it that losing their name is an intrinsic part of becoming a renegade Time Lord, though some renegades still have them. Drax seems to get away with using his real name, but then again, he isn't ''nearly'' as big a troublemaker as the other Renegades.

** However, it turns out that the name chosen by a Time Lord is a "real name" to a sufficient degree that when the Doctor and the Master are addressed by Lord President Rassilon, it's as "Lord Doctor" and "Lord Master". And for all we know, names like "Rassilon" or "Romanadvoratrelundar" could be similar words in other languages- quite likely since taking a name with a meaning seems to be the custom. The "the" in "The Rani" demonstrates this; we don't know what a Rani is (unless the alien MadScientist considers herself a Hindu queen for some reason) but there's such a thing and she calls herself one of those. Long story short: His birth name is not the only name considered his "real name" among his people.

* ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'': The Black Queen is only ever called that, or by the typical royal titles. Alternatively "Great Tyrant" when she has yet to show up and the movie is trying to fake you out regarding her gender. She did get a proper name (Slupe) in the original comics, but she was probably lying about it.

* The only reason the titular characters in AnAdventureOfSheepandChicken call the antagonist "a hiker" is because they don't know his actual name and because... he's a hiker. They never do find out what the hiker's real name is.
