* In the original ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', Pauline was this at first. Until the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]] version was released in North America, she was only ever referred to as "the lady".[[note]]It should be noted that in either case, she has no on-screen name. Any name she was given was only ever mentioned in [[AllThereInTheManual the arcade version's instruction card, and the NES version's instruction manual]].[[/note]]

* In ''{{Comicbook/Shazam}}'' comics, the Marvel family gets their powers from a wizard named [[TheChooserOfTheOne Shazam]], and (except for Freddy) [[HenshinHero activate and deactivate]] their powers by [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull saying his name]]. This happens ''any''time they say his name, even if they don't want to transform. As a result, they normally just refer to him as "the Wizard," and his name as "the Magic Word."

In the ComicBook/New52 reimagining, this was altered so intent matters: if they say his name with intent to transform, then they'll change, but if they don't intend to transform, it has no effect.
