* In the ''Literature/BlackCompany'' novels, wizards are either known only by a title that describes their position and powers or OnlyKnownByTheirNickname, since a wizard's true name holds power over them and can even be used to strip their magic away. The Dominator, the Lady, Soulcatcher, and Shapeshifter are all examples of the "known by a descriptive title" version.

* ''[[{{Conqueror}} Lords of the Bow]]'' includes a nameless assassin and spy who infiltrate the Mongol camp during the siege of Yenking. The spy goes by the name Ma Tsin, though this is a pseudonym, and the sections told from his PointOfView only ever refer to him as 'the spy'. ''Bones of the Hills'' features the Old Man of the Mountains, imam of the [[ProfessionalKiller Assassins]].
* In the original novel ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' by Gaston Leroux, there is a rather plot-central character known only as the Persian. He was, however, cut from Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical based on said book, with Madame Giry somewhat taking over his role.

* In ''[[Literature/AsianSaga Shogun]]'', only the ruling class have actual names: everyone else is called things like "Old Gardener" (except prostitutes who take the names of flowers.) The protagonist ends up being called Anjin-san, which is a polite way to refer to his job as Pilot of a ship.

** Dean Pelton is called Dean more than he's called Craig. The fact he constantly makes dean-related puns (it's his whole i-dean-tity) doesn't help.
