* The [[CoolPlane Boeing 747]] is nicknamed ''Jumbo'' and ''Queen of the Skies''[[note]]At first was known derisively as ''Film/{{Dumbo}}'', because of engine problems on some of the first units[[/note]]. Taken [[UptoEleven to an extreme]] with the Airbus A380, known as ''[=SuperJumbo=]''.

A name given to a character by fan communities. It is sometimes possible to read an entire forum about a show and never see a direct reference to the character's scripted name. A natural result if the producers [[NoNameGiven take too long in providing a character with an official name]].

See also InSeriesNickname, RedBaron (when the characters do this), PortmanteauSeriesNickname (a sub-trope), and PortmanteauCoupleName (a {{Shipping}} sub-trope). Not to be confused with FanCommunityNicknames, which are names for the communities themselves. Actual canon nicknames used onscreen, however witty, also don't count, unless they were [[AscendedMeme adopted by the producers]] as a ShoutOut to the fans, or are used far more extensively in the fandom than in-{{canon}}. Also compare CanonName, which is a FanNickname applied to a nameless hero who was given that name in adaptations.

* ''FanFic/ToyHammer'' gives us Emma, who in the future would reincarnate into the God Emperor of Mankind (not spoilers because this happens during her introduction). Appropriately, her FanNickname is 'the Emma-peror'.

* The HugoAward category "Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form" is sometimes called "Best ''Series/DoctorWho'' Episode", as that show has dominated the category since it returned to air (the only exception being ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' winning in 2009)

** The Book of the Apocalypse refers to the election of the "Black Pope" as a harbinger of the Final Judgement. Cue African cardinal [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Turkson Peter Turkson]] being regarded by the 2005 Conclave as a possible Pope candidate, and earning the nicknames of "Black Pope" and "Nigga Pope" as a result.

*** Delays to the British AS 90 self-propelled gun led to it being nicknamed the "choirboy," on account of it spending ten years being buggered by Vickers.
