* Homura Akemi of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' refers to almost everyone by their full name, with no honorifics. [[spoiler:It seems to be part of her facade, reflecting her distance from the others compared with [[GroundhogDayLoop previous timelines]]]]. Kyuubey is also known to do this, but not all of the time.

** Although many Chinese people are referred to by only one name in English (eg 'Mao', 'Chiang'), Yao Ming seems to be a common exception. JackieChan too.

Added DiffLines:

* A variation on ''Series/GeneralHospital''. While he didn't use their first and last names, Luke Spencer consistently referred to the women in his life by their real names--sister Bobbie ("Barbara"), niece Carly ("Caroline"), friend Alexis ("Natasha"), and daughter Lulu ("Lesley Lu")--and was the only person on the show to do so.

* The majority of pro wrestling groups prefer to be referred to by initials, (Wrestling/{{FMW}}, Wrestling/{{ECW}}, Wrestling/{{WSU}}, Wrestling/{{CZW}}, Wrestling/{{R|ingOfHonor}}oH, etc) but Memphis Ladies Wrestling back pedaled and urged fans to refer to them by their full name after changing to ''Magnificent'' Ladies Wrestling due to legal fears. At least until they added an Of to their name(MLOW).[[/folder]]

* Charlie Brown in ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' is mostly addressed this way. Exceptions are Eudora (who calls him "Charles"), Peppermint Patty (who calls him "Chuck"), and Marcie (who sometimes calls him the former, but other times calls him the latter). His sister Sally calls him "Big Brother", because at the very least calling him by her own family name would be odd. Strangely enough, however, in the Thanksgiving episode, he refers to himself as "Charlie Brown" when speaking to his grandmother on the phone.[[note]]He was pretty nervous in that scene, though, leading to the mixup.[[/note]] In many post-1970 strips, Snoopy refers to him as "the Round-Headed Kid," suggesting he doesn't even know, or has forgotten, his name.[[note]]It's even possible that he simply chooses not to refer to him by name, or only refers to him by name when he feels like it.[[/note]] Also, in a 1990 storyline, Charlie Brown's summer girlfriend Peggy Jean calls him "Brownie Charles," because that's how he nervously introduces himself. At one point in the ChristmasEpisode, Lucy demonstrates a moment of frankness by saying "Look, Charlie." This is probably the ''only'' time anyone addresses him simply by his preferred nickname.

* Tatewaki and Kodachi Kuno in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' have a tendency to do this in most cases, generally with the only exceptions to the rule being that they tend to refer to each ''other'' with very sarcastic terms of endearment. The other exception would be Ranma himself, whom Kodachi refers to as "Ranma darling".
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Ichigo Kurosaki and Byakuya Kuchiki seemed unable to ''not'' refer to the other as such during their fight. They said each other's full names 20 times. Afterwards, when it was clear they were no longer enemies, Ichigo [[FirstNameBasis dropped the last name]] (to Byakuya's chagrin) and Byakuya kept calling him by his full name.
** In the dub, at the points where Ichigo calls Byakuya by name when he doesn't in the original, he sometimes just uses Byakuya's first name; for example, midway through Episode 57, he says "You haven't put a scratch on me yet, Byakuya!"
** Ulquiorra also calls Ichigo and Orihime by their full names, when not calling them "Shinigami" or "woman," respectively, and also once refers to Rukia by her full name.
*** Though in Byakuya and "Ulquiorra [[FanNickname The Saddest Clown in Hueco Mundo's]]" case, they were intentionally trying to be dicks. Likewise, Ichigo was trying to be a dick up until he beat down Byakuya's sorry ass.

** Fuhrer King Bradley is rarely referred to as just Fuhrer Bradley. Having "Fuhrer" for a title and ''"King"'' for a first name is just doubly BadAss.

** Then there's ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', in which there are two black mages raising a baby chocobo... Bobby Corwen. Giving a chocobo a last name in the first place is noteworthy, but they say "Bobby Corwen" enough that Eiko points out, "Can't you just call him by his first name...?" It's worth mentioning, though, that this is also likely a shout out with "Bo"bby "Co"rwen referring to Boco, from ''Final Fantasy V'' and ''VIII''. (Although the black mages themselves might just not understand that you don't always use last names...)
